Pandemic review

I've played it twice now and it really is great fun. We got destroyed both times but still had a fun time playing. Perfect follow-up game after having failed to stop the world from dying horribly in a Pandemic? Zombicide. It was a perfect fit! :)

Tim Schafer needs more money to finish Broken Age

daft

Unfortunately this is how most software projects work. They are hard to plan and set budgets for if they have any sort of ambition beyond shuffling data between a small number of nodes. Even then things easily go pear shaped to be honest. I recently backed Massive Chalice as well, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if something similar happens to that title, and I'm really looking forward to both titles, but in general I am hesitant to back software projects on KS because of the inherent difficulty to plan and budget them and the long lead times for development.

Of course they will limit availability initially! There is no way the NSA would be able to keep up with the massive inflow of HD Kinect video and audio data for a simultaneous worldwide release.

Will GAME's Woes Kill Off AA Titles?

daft

Why do people keep talking like GAME were selling a fuckton of games, AA and AAA? Had they done so I doubt they would be going tits up now. We'll see how things go, but I quite honestly doubt any tier of games is threatened to any serious degree by GAME's demise.

GAME unsure over future as it reportedly puts itself up for sale

daft

6 years ago

They give people next to nothing for trading in new games and sell them at close to full price despite being pre-owned. Of course they are on the verge of collapse. As soon as people stop being stupid they go bust, it's not rocket surgery. I do feel for all the people that's about to lose their livelihood, hopefully they'll be able find new employment soon, they are generally good people from my experience. Much more pleasant to deal with than GameStop-staff from what I've seen. But again, good riddance to a bad company. I will not miss you.

@Machiavellian Do note my comment was not aimed at MS or Sony. My annoyance is with the large networks not willing or able to work hard enough to make their content available outside their countries. I couldn't give a toss if I consume it on the Xbox, PS3 or through my browser. I want to consume dammit! :)

So the big lads continue to ignore digital distribution outside their sandbox, eh? Annoying. I'd pay good money to have Sky, BBC, Hulu, NetFlix and HBO on my Xbox or PS3 here in Sweden.

Wouldn't touch any Blackwater branded shit with a barge pole. Amazingly bad taste in my opinion and I cincerely hope it fails miserably as a game. Ok, I know game devs like money, just as any normal company, but one would think they also had some integrity.

Between this and RPS' articles about Fox News one might hope that video games writing is slowly moving away from being mouth pieces of publishers and developers PR departments and becoming creative outlets for actual games journalism. Long way to go yet though, but an excellent article. More please.

Why must you map the words to numbers? Why not call a game that is a 5 "Average" instead of giving it a 5 which apparently means... average? If you were programming I could understand it. Creating enumerations is very useful in that case. Now it just makes things a lot less clear.
