Isn't that just pressuring a different studio to make a sequel they don't want to do?

>That's why 'find a way to make coverage of mobile games work on Eurogamer' is on my to-do list for 2012.

To be fair, you took a bit of a step backwards with the new design- the way the old one was set out gave you a space for 'this' kind of content (IE, reviews and features) and another for 'that' kind of content (IE, news). You could have easily added a space for the 'the other' kind of content (in this case, mobile games).

This would have allowed you to give mobile reviews the sort of prominence that they need to be commercially viable, while still making them appear different enough that such content doesn't have to fulfill the same expectations a review of a PC/Console game might, while still giving it the ability to be bumped to the 'proper' article space on a curation basis.

Now instead, with all the content bundled into one linear stream with a rolling popularity chart, mobile reviews are just going to get lost underneath AAA blockbuster reviews and controversial news stories.

Microsoft: all new Xbox dash apps must support Kinect

So long as this stays to apps and doesn't infiltrate games, this is fine with me- a bit of consistency for non-gaming software never hurt anyone.

@Ironic_War_Criminal >Nerds cry and take a strop

Really? All I'm seeing is well-formed arguments against a slightly bizarre thought experiment, made by perfectly normal, well-adjusted members of society.

People aren't automatically wrong just because they go against criticism of games.

Skyrim: the first western game to receive a 40/40 Famitsu review

beemoh

6 years ago

@hiscore What they should do is, next to the score, have a load of text where the reviewer can put some information about their views on more specific parts of the game, such as bugs.

Then, you could read that and it'd give you some more information to use to put that score in context.

In which case, it's not "broken", it just doesn't work for you.

The argument here is that toilets are a waste of time because they're not as good at keeping fish in as fishtanks are. Enough of the hyperbole, please, developer-businesspeople.

Fantastic article.

Makes a lot of sense alongside the ongoing rumblings around the Uncharted 3 review- there's ways to do stories in games by using games' unique strengths, and there's bulldozing your Actual Game in order to tell a story. It's clear to see which game did which.
