LONG BLOG

The Culture Gap.

   0
Cereal business this time guys.

Like, super cereal.

I�m talking Branflakes, yo.

In the last year we�ve heard a lot about Western vs. Eastern design philosophy, how many times have you seen the comments section of an article devolve into �Yawn, another pretty boy with ridiculous hair and a massive sword� and then �At least it�s better than another buzz cut marine killing everything with his massive gun�. And while there�s certainly a lot to be said about both sides approach to game design I want to talk about something slightly different. Specifically, publishers attempts to appeal to each market.


�This blog is getting un-bear-ably long.�

Takeshi Yamanaka gets it too, understanding that while his game is niche, having a global view of the industry doesn�t hurt things. But what do you think? Should games be ported over directly or should changes be made? Would the money spent making changes be better spent finding a better way to advertise the games to the west instead? Should we all get in a big circle and sing Kum by ya? Sound off in the comments.

(Apologies for the lack of boner jokes in this post. But look forward to my next blog �Gaming�s Top Ten Greatest Boners!")

About Handyone of us since 1:44 PM on 09.14.2009

Welcome to the blog.... you must be bored. anyway im Handy, I'm a student in Ireland and I'm here to talk about whatever may come into my mind....so not much then.

Lets see... I�ve been playing games pretty much my whole life, since my Commodore back in the day to my ps3 now I�ve been hooked. Actually come to think of it I can�t remember a time I wasn�t playing games. Can�t say I have a favourite genre, I like to try a bit of everything, though I will go to town on a good RPG. I�ll have something to fill in this space as soon as my life becomes interesting.

^^^ Seriously, I wrote that like four years ago and still nothing interesting has happened.



Like everyone else on Destructoid I�m at a loss on what to fill this space with so I guess I�ll just catalogue my greatest hits, if you can call a loose collection of lists and borderline pornographic fanart �greatest hits�.
