Halfbrick's upcoming game is a puzzler called Bears vs Art

giapel

4 years ago

I donno, i find halfbrick hit and miss. Fruit ninja had excellent tactile controls and addictive simplicity but the later updates made it worse rather than better. Jetpack joyride was and still is amazing, definately their high point and one the best ios games. Fish out of water though was crap throughout. I'm cautiously interested, although I'm not sure they understand what made jetpack such a blast to play and gave it such longevity.

Games are squandering their potential to truly immerse us

giapel

You know what's the no1 thing that breaks the immersion in gaming? The fact that if you die, you can start again. That, in itself is the ultimate immersion breaker. In my opinion, movies and books can be way more immersive.

Are you serious? Nintendogs success was unprecedent for that "genre" and there's no denying that that later Pet(z) games tried to capitalise on that success. Saying that there were pet games before doesn't mean anything

Dishonored dev now making Prey 2, new report claims

giapel

If they gonna remake it from scratch, what's the point in wasting Arkane doing that? Is Prey IP all that important? Furthermore, I can't imagine Viktor Antonov working on this, so it won't be the "Dishonored dev" that's making this.

Saturday Soapbox: IP Freely?

giapel

5 years ago

For comics, this train of thought works because a single person can create a character. For videogames, especially not mascot driven, is quite harder. Is Desilets the creator of Assassin's Creed? Sould he have ownership of the IP? Why him? Why not the rest of the 200 people that worked on it. See where this is leading?

AC3 is the only game I've ever traded back before finishing it. It is uninspired, unpolished, boring and technically very very poor. No hype at all for AC4. Watch Dogs look cool though, but I dont have high hopes for the polish of it

Asda drops Wii U price to just 149/199

giapel

But the problem IS games. These retailers slashing the price to boost sales(or get rid of stock) are missing the point. Thats why Nintendo hasnt officially dropped it yet. Without the right games, there wont be demand even if it sells for 99

Tomb Raider writer discusses Lara Croft's kill count

giapel

5 years ago

If you try to create believable characters then write a book or a film. In games, the player has control therefore any consistent characterisation goes out of the window. At best, we get characters that are blank canvases, at worst we get characters that are so different between gameplay and cutscenes it hurts. Just stop trying

I find it intersting that more and more industry veterans are turning to small, more manageable and more personal projects. Maybe this also explains why more and more of the big blockbusters seem bloated, aimless and without direction.

giapel

@Eldritch I'm not denying that this could be avoided if the parents were more careful. And good point about the 9+ rating although I still believe that it should be higher. Anything with 60 perishable iap is borderline a scam anyway

giapel

5 years ago

Games that are addictive in nature and allow you to spend 60 per inapp purchase to continue playing are no worse than gambling. Therefore they should come with a 18+ rating and not marketed at kids. Apple is in the wrong, the developper is in the wrong and the ratings body(whoever it is) is in the wrong. The parents are being mislead by thinking this is a game suitable for kids. It's not. No other way to see this.
