MMO Design Ramble

Originally posted on my personal blog. Iíve got a lot of thoughts written down about the MMO genre waiting to be formed into articles, and with each passing year the collective pile of thoughts gets bigger and messier. What ...

 


In Love with Layton

Iíve never been a big fan of lateral thinking based puzzles, and this is the main reason I have always written off the Professor Layton games on the Nintendo DS and not given them any bit of my attention. After beating Henr...

 


Time Investment as a Resource

Time spent in relation to how well you play a game is an interesting concept. There are always people all across the spectrum - some become proficient fast, some slow. Even chess has young prodigies that can challenge older ď...

 


The Enigma of Multiplayer Gaming

Multiplayer games and how they sustain their player population has always mystified me. Especially as a huge fan of independent games and game studios, and the common struggle to keep a low-brow indie title retaining players ...

 


The impact of bad endings in games

(Note: contains no spoilers, but does include my opinion on the quality of Fallout 3's ending. Also I wrote this a few days ago and have since gotten over it and started a new character up.) Games with bad endings have alwa...

 


Survive the Outbreak (semi-NVGR)

I was reading mr durand's blog on interactivity and it prompted me to remember this interesting interactive movie I was linked the other day. Didn't see it posted here so I figured I would toss a link: http://survivetheoutbreak.com/ It does tend to break a lot of zombie survival rules, but it's certainly a neat concept.

 


MMO Nostalgia is a Powerful Thing

So, I've been playing Vanguard lately (if you can believe it, it's actually turned into a decent game), because SOE gave free access to it along with EverQuest and it's sequel for a time. The only reason this is worth mention...

 


Brawl, let me count the ways I hate thee

I know this is just going to get me flamed to hell, although I am genuinely curious if there's anyone out there who agrees with me. Also, if you're a hardcore fan of the game I simply wouldn't read any further because I don't...

 



TimeShift = fail of the year award

There's nothing like playing an epic game like Bioshock and then playing something like... TimeShift. Wow. I guess there's a reason I completely missed the news post on this one. Full of rehashes (regenerating healthbar? expl...

 


Official response from 2k re: Bioshock's mishaps

Didn't see this posted/cblogged on dtoid yet. You can find the post from Elizabeth Tobey here: http://www.2kgames.com/cultofrapture/home.html In addition to the "bigger" issue that has recently exploded regarding SecuROM/DRM, they also mention and tip the hat to Racer_S for his amazing widescreen fix and say that - as expected - an official patch is in the works. Good stuff.

 


What better way to start

Well, I've been wanting to stop lurking and write an introductory post for a while, and what better time to start now, when there will be a flood of new blogs, so if I embarrass myself it'll probably just be whisked away by t...
