@leeroye "All they do is fill the map with so much stuff that it looks like there is a lot of content. However, after a few hours you start to realise it just the same stuff over and over and over again."

They do indeed. That said, if the gameplay is good, these become enjoyable and less of a chore. I really enjoyed clearing out Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed Black Flag's side missions as I was enjoying the game and game worlds.

It's hard not to see most of it as filler and busy work though, easily creating what they perceive as extra value.

Do I need to play Life of Wolf or Life of Jaguar for Life of Tiger to make sense..?

The "developers" seem to have a line in churning out awful games.

Puppy Land Online:


Life of Wolf:


Life of Jaguar:


"My lovely pregnant female leopardess and I were
enjoying a pleasant life.
We were excited about her giving birth and
getting to new baby leopards in a few days.
It was until that starving jerk approached us after
I had gone out to hunt….

I will remember your smell forever.
I will surely find you and seek revenge.

Who is the best hunter amongst animals?
You will become the best hunting leopard in this game."

@Turniplord So you don't do the same? Music you don't like? Films you're not interested in? You've never decided "Oh, those look awful."? Must be a fantastical world for you, loving everything.

Again, I even added, for the avoidance of doubt, "to each their own" on the end of my initial comment, because different people like different things. And that's fine, I'm not going to get my thong in a twist over that. Opinions are everywhere. Many of them won't be the same as yours.

Taking issue with me for not being super pumped for Yakuza 0? What's the point in that?

Lego Boost robotic sets announced, designed to teach kids coding

@IncredibleBulk As has been discussed, or at the very least alluded to by BumpkinRich and myself, this is a stepping stone. Programming is, at a basic level, a series of instructions and conditions. If this sort of activity turns a wee light on in their little brains, the jump to writing actual code won't be too great :) (and may even excite them, given more flexibility with what they can do)

@BumpkinRich Having looked at this properly, it actually looks very good, and collaborative! Great for schools I'd imagine (ex-computing teacher)

I've done a fair bit of programming. Chaining instructions on your iPhone with no actual coding doesn't seem to be the best introduction. Like learning to drive a car by having a go at Micro Machines on the MegaDrive.

Then there's the price, sweet lordy.

Edit: I retract my thoughts about it being too simple, looks like a great - and flexible - way to start out. And Scratch is free :)
