Emotional Games

Yesterday I finished playing Telltale's Walking Dead. It made me think about what it takes for a game to create an emotional connection with the player. Here is a bit of vague wishy washy talk in that area.   read

Look at how bad I am at Rayman

We recently were treated to a bunch of new info about the PS4. I don't want to talk about that. I want to play a game from 2011 and talk about a bunch of completely unrelated stuff.   read

I shouldn’t be playing it, but I am. Montowers is a free to play iPhone game. In Montowers you summon monsters to fight other monsters in towers. Apparently I’ve been playing it for twelve hours. I know that because of a ...   read
