@Unholy_Witchcraft2 Ever heard of Kendrick Lamar? He's contemporary, very, very popular, an exceptional technician with meaningful lyrics and the best production behind him since ATCQ. The fact you ignored his existence when talking about modern hip-hop shows how little you know.

The best 3DS games

Alatair

It really is the single best console around, handheld or not. But then again that's what you expect from a Nintendo handheld: exceptional first-party genre games and tons of high quality and quirky experiences from other devs.

Hyper Light Drifter recalls Zelda meets Diablo by way of Sword & Sworcery

Looks fantastic. I never understood the argument that pixellated graphics in modern games look particularly cliche, I always thought it was a valid stylistic choice if handled with care, just like all other styles of art design.

Tax Evaders is a fun browser game about corporate tax evasion

Alatair

5 years ago

@rainsong You can't close the loopholes, as soon as you alter the legislation you open more. The government has made it as difficult as it can within the boundaries of free trade to do so, but you have some very intelligent and highly paid people poking holes in their attempts.

@seitur I agree with much of what you say, but it's just a little bugbear of mine that people view avoidance and evasion as legally interchangeable words, when clearly they are not. Just educating not hating :)

Isn't this an exercise in misbranding as the corporations involved are "guilty" of the morally questionable, but perfectly legal, practice of tax avoidance not evasion?

Warren Spector: "The ultraviolence has to stop"

Alatair

6 years ago

Nothing wrong with a malenky bit of the old ultraviolence. Personally if I play a fighting game without blood or any maiming it doesn't quite feel right. Imagine how awful Kill Bill would be without the gratuitous OTT murder, but with it it rolls along nicely all grindhouse-like. And I feel it's the same for a lot of videogames.

PES hits back: Konami accuses FIFA of copying, reveals truth behind licenses and explains Seabass' new role

Alatair

6 years ago

Why should we as consumers give a damn whether or not FIFA "copied" PES, or the integrity of EA when it comes to license purchasing, when the resulting product is far superior; there's little point whinging about what FIFA does and not offering solutions to make your game better, I don't think he mentioned one improvement in this years PES barring the player ID feature; and this was framed around the conceit that FIFA copies. How can you say FIFA copied the notion of player appearances? That ALWAYS had to occur regardless of whether or not PES ever even existed, it's called SIMULATION for a reason, the goal is to reach as immersive and, within enjoyable boundaries, true-to-life reflection of the sport as possible. FIFA isn't copying PES, it's copying football.

Portal 2 PC outperformed console versions

Alatair

7 years ago

Weird, thought it'd be the other way around. Thought since the ad campaign for portal 2 was so intensive that the 360 and PS3 gamers whose population is greater than that of PC gamers (might be wrong, dunno) it would preform best on consoles.

It is never mentioned that there are no computers in this new future just that they are no based on silicon hardware, I'm sure a different semiconductor could be used and that is what the systems are derived from, although the technology is in it's infancy hence the clunky mechs.

Excellent to hear they have no intention of reinventing their perfectly round(ed off) wheel. It mist be a difficult decision to throw yourself out in a leap of faith over that chasm of uncertainty with regards to puplic and critical reception, can you see a big established firm like EA or Acti making a decision like that?
