Played at E3. Was surprisinly shite. Was horribly disappointed. So generic feeling and the combat just felt drippy.

First-person exploration puzzler Scale lets you shrink or grow almost anything

I played it at Indiecade. It's not as organic as the pitch. The grow and shrink was very case by case. I didn't enjoy it much at all, but good luck to him.

Sounds more fun than it played at E3. Played a bit knob to be honest. The cheese sadly extends to the level and game design in places.

BTW, who were the 'real' team members from Starbreeze at that time whom matter? Like lead designers, coders and so on? Pretty sure they're all over the planet now. Jens Anderson was at Lucas for a while.

Yeah. I detested this. Felt like someone did a licensed Mario game.

Really poor design choices too. Invisible walls, weird checkpointing. Just didn't feel classical IMO.

Wow. Very pretty. Gameplay obviously nothing new, but the visual and audio fidelity really increases the sense of horror of what's going on. I found that difficult to watch, but in a positive way.

Black Knight Sword review

jimmcbob

5 years ago

I've been playing it a great deal and like Ghouls and Ghosts, it has a special 'twist' at the end that forces you to play through a second time, but with more power.

I'm enjoying the 2nd playthrough moreso, as I know the game and boss patterns well, and the game's level designs are edited to be tougher against your knowledge.

It's old skool in both good and bad ways, and I'd probably give it a strong 6 too. But 6 meaning 'above average'.

Personal main gripe with it, is simply that the camera tracks poorly and I've been sniped by jumping into surprise, unseen projectiles.

Combat / stabbing is quite fun though.

So this looks like the Amazing Alex tech was re-purp'd into an Angry Brids franchise game. Still, looks decent. Well done for not being creatively lazy bastards Rovio (kinda).

Tim Schafer on free-to-play, showing works in progress and Brutal Legend's misleading marketing

jimmcbob

I think Mr Schafer is dead on. The messaging was that it was Metalocalypse Platformer GTA to me. I then got it and it was RTS. Probably wouldn't have minded but that's not what I bought into.

Free Radical vs. the Monsters

@StingingVelvet Artistic vision was their strength. To sacrifice that is too close to a fine line of what kept them unique. Problem is, the techniques used to fight that vision, and possibly the people chosen for biz/pub relationships could have been the real issue.
