They make a lot of sense to me. I feel like I’ve played lots of puzzles that look like those (and that play in the way Blow has described them).
Everything about The Witness sounds terrific except the boring-looking puzzles.
The fact that the game has a “bigotry slider” sort of implies that this kind of thing maybe should be expected by players, but I think the developer responded well here I’m not sure if my opinion (as a heterosexual white male) matters much in this case, but I understand where the developer is coming from and think the situation has been handled as well (and as honestly) as it could be.
Takes a special kind of person to get angry about something like that.
No, it’s okay to talk about how and why the DS3 was bad, especially when it’s just expanding on something said in the video. The guy isn’t talking about your family.
Probably people who played the 99% of games that didn’t utilize them and wondered why they felt so weird and cushy when they pushed them.
You don’t have to like it to understand and appreciate that, for better or worse, it’s an important and vital thing for a large chunk of players.
Even still, to compare this actual dumb thing with the hypothetical thing that isn’t actually happening? “This isn’t great, but at least it’s better than this thing that doesn’t actually exist!”
Well, it was never patched into PS3. Seems like an obvious addition to have made.
Every single thing doesn’t have to be looked at in contrast so some unrelated thing MS did (or, in this case, might have done but will not ultimately do).
I wonder if it’s because you’ve ratcheted up your sensitivity in the old version? There used to be an option to do that and it’s absent here. I miss it, too (though I think the sequel is terrific regardless).
I don’t understand the argument that they don’t “deserve” the success. Lots of people play these games for hours and hours every single year because they enjoy them, so they continue to buy them because a new campaign, tweaks to multiplayer, and new maps make it worth the $60 to them. These games earn the sales as much as or more than any franchise precisely because they’re so proven and do well every single year.
