New Splinter Cell: Blacklist video shows off controversial torture scene, moral choices

Gimpy_Wonderland

6 years ago

I'm becoming quite tired of this industrys sociopathic desire for ever-increasing levels of violence. It seems like everything these days is about pushing the boundaries of taste and acceptability, rather than pushing for innovation and furthering the medium.

Who is actually enjoying this? Since when has torture become part of an entertainment product? It's fine when films and books do it, because they're able to treat the subject with at least a modicum of maturity, and aren't actively glorifying the act.

Assassin's Creed exec: Japan devs' stories criticised less because of journalists' "subtle racism"

Gimpy_Wonderland

Did he really just bring up Gears of War in a comment about storytelling? A game that consists of little more than giant men that look like tree-trunks, grunting unintelligibly at each other, and stomping aliens in the face, with some hamfisted melodrama thrown in every now and then.

I'd take Bayonetta over that, thank you very much.

So much for Cage's thoughts on video game violence and maturity. This just seemed like, "murder all the SWAT guys because they're...uh...doing their job?"

Really didn't see the purpose of the violence in that scene.

@null Peronally, I play TR games for the sense of exploration, the gameplay, and the puzzles.

Lost Humanity 8: Days of Nothing

You leave the Yakuza games alone, you nasty man!

No, but in all seriousness, the whole sexism thing is getting a little tired. The games industry is hardly guiltiest of being misogynistic; just take a look at any pop videos (which have far greater audiences than games aimed at the hardcore crowd); look at the portrayal of women in most films and television shows; look at celebrity 'culture' and the paparazzi, where photographers will stalk famous people get shots of them in bikins et cetera.

I getting really sick of the implications that gamers are horrible people who degrade women at every opportunity, when all we're trying to do is play games. When people successfully campaign against girls dancing around like strippers in 90% of music videos, then maybe I'll start to give a damn.

Damn, I was genuinely hoping that Ninja Theory had redisgned Vergil as a bald, handlebar-moustachioed lapdancer. The ensuing tantrums from 'fans' would've been glorious.

This new look seems good though, but I'm sure it'll still elicit more hatred purely because Ninja Theory designed it.

Square Enix supports Ouya: Final Fantasy 3 at launch

Gimpy_Wonderland

6 years ago

@null I actually liked II a lot. It was easy enough just to go through the game only levelling stats if/when you needed to. III, on the other hand, had you just grinding over and over to meet an arbitrary level high enough to beat the next boss. And not only grinding character levels, you were forced to grind each job just to be somewhat effective in battle.

It's the only game in the series that I gave up on; I got 3/4 of the way through and couldn't face it any more.

As a huge fan of the series, FFIII is by far the worst one; it's just horribly vacuous, and unnecessarily grindy.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale leak outs characters, stages

Gimpy_Wonderland

6 years ago

The roster's looking pretty good so far, but it'd be nice to see some lesser known characters like Kiryu Kazuma (Yakuza), Raziel (Soul Reaver), Ellen or Keats (Folklore), Amaterasu (Okami) and Jennifer Tate (Primal).

Plus, there's going to be the inevitable Final Fantasy characters, and I'm sure Solid Snake or Big Boss will be in. It'd be a travesty if the original Crash Bandicoot and Spyro don't make it in - they were iconic PS characters back in the day. I'd love it if Tommy Vercetti were in, in all his Hawaiian shirted glory, but he'd probably play too similarly to Drake...

And how about some stages influenced by PixelJunk, or thatgamecompany's titles?

Gimpy_Wonderland

When download speeds are fast enough to download 15GB+ files in less than a week, and publishers don't charge obscene amounts for the digital games [49.99 in some cases!], then yes, digital distribution will indeed be the future, and I'll happily embrace it.

As satisfying as it is to own a physical disc, digital is so much more convenient.
