Uh if you do approach Braid like a platformer, you really aren't getting it at all.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

"Oh no...not this 'story' crap again. When will developers learn that people do not play MMO's for the story, they play it for the community. Honestly, can anyone say they played WoW for its story? They need to concentrate on features that will support the player community and accessability to all players."

Nail on the head. What the hell is the point of creating a massive world with thousands of players together if you're just gonna make them grind their own separate quest lines? Why is it that every single MMO developer completely ignores Eve Online? Personally it was not my cup of tea but it was still light years ahead of everything else in actually "getting" how an MMO should be.

I thought Rand's Objectivism espoused moral absolutism rather than "brilliance unfettered by morality". Wasn't it one of the problems with her philosophy as the idea of absolute truths, in this case absolute right and wrong, runs contrary to objectivisms embrace of rationalism?

Haven't read the rest of the comments so sorry if I'm repeating someone else

Dunno how you guys can talk about horror in games without mentioning System Shock 2 and the first AvP. They were by far the scariest games I've ever played. The horror came from the atmosphere of terror and helplessness they put you in and never relied on cheap scripted sequences like that Condemned example or silly fixed cameras and fumbly controls. Whether the designer knows what you're doing (and fixed cameras or not) is irrelevant as he shouldn't be relying on that to scare you, he's not making a film here you can only get jumped by a boo moment so much before you stop giving a crap (see FEAR).

Maddie ref. an "unfortunate coincidence"

I couldn't give a shit about the Maddie thing or Bungie and Microsoft but this just reeks of cynical marketing attempting to channel some controversy. What would you expect Bungie to say? "Yes that was a reference to that kidnapped kid, hi Daily Mail"? It doesn't matter what, if anything, it's a reference to. People are talking, sites like this are asking for comments, its job is done. Bungie and MS will just deny everything, everyone forgets about it, attention has been drawn to the game, win!

That, or the PR people are completely out of touch with things.

Either way I'm not impressed.

Another one to rent then. Somehow enjoyed The Force Unleashed a lot more knowing I didn't blow 60 quid on it.

Call of Duty: World at War

Let's see..

- More mature = more violent
- Shitty AI = Crazy fanatical suicidal japanese that NEVER SURRENDERS
- Stereotyping of japanese as being fanatical and suicidal
- You get to burn those bloody japs with flame tanks, motolov cocktails and the good ol' flamethrower
- "unsanitised...no-holds-barred, no mercy attack" on Berlin as the russians, promising "an ugly, violent, grown-up depiction of what it was actually like." So is the "rape the locals" ability mapped to a specific button or is it context sensitive?

Number of german soldiers that've meekly surrendered in previous Call of Duty games: 0

"Conversation and bartering are two aspects of the game that we regretfully don't get anywhere near experiencing at E3, but given Bethesda's record and Fallout's history, we'd expect them to have some serious depth and reward"

What?

Needs more russian front or alternative perspective games, getting sick of playing as the Americans in Europe all the time.
