I think it's fair to give artistic creations a kicking if they are really whitewashed, look at Richard Curtis' London in Notting Hill, or Woody Allen's Manhattan (and London).

But not this game - let's have some proportion here. It's so tenuous to give it a kicking over racial representation. There will be a million other historical inaccuracies in it - the past really is an alien place, conceptually, linguistically etc.

I really think these student politics type discussions play into the hands of the frothing right.

I would absolutely recommend this, even if Eurogamer won't. I suck at games but this always feels challenging in the right way, you are always learning, getting closer. The amazing artistry and design help reinforce it: it's an intense game but also a really special one.

Twitch streamers like Seagull always get good numbers so I don't think it's a write off for spectators.

It's cool to watch high level players - but only from their first person perspective at the moment. The zoomed out spectator mode is just too messy, and jumping from one player to the next as people commentate is too confusing and loses all momentum.

The 'expanded' aspect is a bit weird. At that point aren't you just inventing a new machine somehow pitched between the original speccy and an arbitrary point in the future? What's the point? You could just put a modern processor in it and run modern things that would have melted my brain as a kid hunched over my 128+2.

I must admit, I had no idea at the time that it was written by kids.

I don't think any website has recaptured the sense of those 80s computer mags really. C&VG was also great for a spell there, with Tony Takoushi's column on consoles and Japanese kit like some dispatches from an incredible future.

My kid has enjoyed the WiiU, especially the Lego Dimensions stuff. But most of our games are on Steam now and I'm not sure the other (7yo) kids in the playground know what he's on about when he talks about that. Steam downloads are also less tangible than a dvd or a cartridge too. It's complex gaming with kids these days!

Fallout 4 one year on

DrR0b3rts

1 year ago

I thought it was great when played on my own terms and was really immersive to wander around. I thought the engine was capable of some really great visuals at times - the outcry about graphics was unfair I reckon.

The 'get in with all factions then choose one' structure is awful though, I think, just like Skyrim. I quit before making the choice and go my own way.

People also romanticise NV. There were some great characters but a lot of janky hopping around restrictive brown mountains. New Vegas city was a massive let down too.

I don't think we've ever had a Fallout game that totally nailed it. They are brilliant but all frustrating in some way.

I enjoyed that. People like 2GD are really helping shape competitive game commentary and coverage, I wish he'd do more GD Studio stuff.

The International furore was daft but a typical culture clash of a corporate US production meeting a very British kind of anarchic sense of humour. He's better off doing his own stuff.
