Firewatch review

Sparc

2 years ago

Nice looking game with an absolute boat load of potential. I would say unfortunately that potential never quite gets realized. The game is too short, it's not as sandbox as it could be with its very linear storyline, the 'mystery' element is easily guessable around the half-way point and you feel ultimately there were some real areas of suspense and mystery that could have been built on more. Nice game, but wait for the price drop I would say.

Trivia
I did like the reference to one of the failed author's books from Gone Home being in a cache and when you turned it over it had had its price slashed to 65c

Destiny's Vault of Glass raid more difficult from today

Sparc

4 years ago

I remember Bungie when they were a really great company who would genuinely listen to their gamers and not just make shit up on the fly to try and artificially extend the content.

To be honest the development team in Bungie should be working on fixing the pitiful network issues that you see Bungie apologising for daily.

Rust dev angers fans by announcing new prototype Riftlight

Sparc

4 years ago

now everyone can see how this new model of releasing games before they are finished and charging for them will fail in many cases. The developer has very little incentive to get them to the final quality we would usually expect. Instead they get bored and think...let's move on to something different.

We all end up with a library of half-developed games.

New Retina iPad Mini "likely" this year - report

Sparc

5 years ago

Apple have lost their way. They should have released the original mini with the Retina display. They had the technology running on iPhones and maxi iPads and so it beggar belief that they shipped without retina display for no other reason than to provide an 'easy' product refresh in 2013. Apple need to sort themselves out and start innovating again. They are starting to fall behind curve.

@phil_75 That's one way of looking at it. The other is that MS have completely wiped out Sony's stranglehold on the console market since the PS2.
