Dungeon Keeper review

Regarding all the 5/5 review on the app store. It's actually another in-game feature where players are rewarded for giving feedback. If you give it 5 stars it takes you to the app ratings page so that it gets recorded.

Spore Creature Creator

Sucram

10 years ago

I feel plenty creative despite the limitations. Sure making asymmetric creatures is hard but I don't want Maya, I want a sketchbook of creativity, which is what it is.

I've seen people make fairly impressive humanoids as well as recreations of all sorts of inanimate objects.

That said my 12 legged centipede would like to have the low complexity limit explained.

Halo 3

Sucram

Why, oh why am I stuck in a jungle with a laptop rather than in some civilized nation where these XBox 360 things can be bought?

Might have to grab a gun an RL roleplay Sierra 117 to satisfy my Halo urges.

If I accidentally kill anyone in the process it's the fault of video games.

A lot of people expected Napoleonic: Total War instead of M:TW II. Glad to see it's finally happening.

If the naval combat is as good as the battles on firmer ground then get out a paintbrush and colour me excited.

GC: Marketing was key for Gears

Sucram

11 years ago

How easy a game is to market is also important.

Viva Pinata and Gears came out the same time with the same publisher. Gears is a technically impressive brown shooter, VP is a err... something with gaudy stuffed animals.

Hence Bioshock being sold as a shooter and Psychonaughts selling half a dozen copies since it was sold as a quirky comedy about brains rather than as a platformer.

BioShock

Sucram

Judging by reviews so far the second printing of the Bioshock box could have the most ridiculous amount of review blurb ever.

"to tick every single box from graphics to audio to gameplay depth to atmosphere and innovation is pretty much unprecedented" - frothing reviewer

"What is a drop of rain, compared to the storm? What is a thought, compared to a mind? Our unity is full of wonder, which your tiny individualism cannot even conceive." -The Many

CA should make an encyclopaedia version of R:TW / M:TWII. Have a bunch of articles about famous historical battles each entry having a 'play this battle' button.

Capture the History Channel audience & have a game that's not utter crap.. done & done.

Could even sell it to schools (well maybe if bundled with a graphics card).

King's Quest III remake released

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey

Sucram

12 years ago

Adventure games just can't win, either they are full of obscure puzzles that leaves everyone scratching their head and turning to walkthroughs

or

they are puzzle lite and everything is logical leaving very little 'game' left.

Here the narrative is engrossing, the characters are well realised, the presentation is enchanting and the 'game' element simple helps draw you into the world(s) and the story.

Judge that how you will.

Defcon

Sucram

12 years ago

"Was it final conflict that took place in the middle East."

No, well yes but not just there. It was a global map like Defcon. There were serveral scenarios like a Middle Eastern Conflict and Cold War Scenario which setup which countries were 'you' and which were 'them'.

Basically you built tanks, troops and missiles and moved/launched them into you neighbours (neutral or not) building up your resources until 'them' was an irradiated blot. It had a screen covered in lines showing the missiles incoming in accelerated time, like WarGames and alarm when they were about to hit etc. etc.

'The Final Conflict' on the ST was the same concept only it DID include the missile command mini-game.
