Well that’s one way to undermine the medium’s narrative capabilities I guess.
And I still admire Ken Levine for creating Rapture and Columbia.
I think he meant to write “for example if episode 1…”
Finally, the real sequel to Arkham City! Driveable Batmobile you say? Larger Gotham? Rocksteady developing with Sefton Hill at the helm? No multiplayer?
Welp, finally a reason to buy that PS4!
Well my Wednesday night is booked.
They shouldn’t have to if it doesn’t come natural to the plot. Meeting a gay character, then a black character, then a native american in succession would just pull you out and remind you they’re filling diversity quotas. This whole movement is a complete detriment to narrative.
New difficulty mode? Now I’ll have to get this!
Don’t have a Kinect, don’t have a PS4 camera, don’t have a webcam, don’t have a smartphone, don’t have a tablet, don’t have a car.
My internet activity and my phone calls is all they could feasibly get from me and it still sucks. I should look into proxies.
That’s fine because they shouldn’t.
Debating against the existence of pulp tropes that will never go away: only on Polygon.
This sounds way better than 1999 Mode which, in the end, only effected damage input and output. They had been talking it up as a mode that would force permanent loadout/spec’ing choices, but all that systemic RPG stuff never made it into the final game. Even on 1999 Mode, Gear (passive buffs) could be swapped at any time.
I’m inclined to finally try Spelunky.
I’d buy it.
This is so surreal.
So what was Robin Williams upset about? The use of his voice in toys and merchandise, that I can understand, but the image of Genie…? Surely Disney owns the character they designed?
While I love the art style, I can’t get excited about more cover-shooting and QTEs. Branching QTEs, wow! That’s not good gameplay and it never was.
That’s testament to the tools in LBP, for sure.
I liked inFamous in theory, but the design and voice of the main character (Cole?) was so unlikeable to me, I never bothered.
That said, this new character looks and sounds a lot more human and it looks like it’ll maybe gel with me. Keeping this in mind when I eventually pick up that PS4.
I agree, karma and morality based systems have been interesting, but it’s time to move to something more organic, where you won’t always be able to predict the benefits and have to make a gut check in the moment, so that you can actually make a moral decision without thinking about your character progression. In that sense, binary morality systems are the opposite of immersive.
The video game industry does not have to compromise any more than other media. Besides, it’s a reference to a classic gangland massacre involving Al Capone. I doubt there will be any uproar.
Man I’m stoked, can’t wait to play it. Two hours of The Last of Us has me more excited than any upcoming full game!
Eh, The Entertainment is already out.
They should give your money back. They have delivered a faulty product. The continue game option disappears from the main menu? Who gave these hacks the Arkham franchise?
Hey EA Mobile devs, how does it feel to sell out your hobby?
Enforce the ESRB as legally binding. Done.
But that won’t happen, because then politicians wouldn’t have the bandwagon to hitch their high horse to.
