I need to rant a bit about the latest development on the console market.
Bioshock infinite. That game has to be the most inspiring game that I played so far in 2013. A big reason for that is: Elizabeth. She's the center of this steampunk/rapunzel/surrealism mash up of a fairy tale. But I'm not gonna talk about the story so much, it's more about how accessible she is (and don't take that the wrong way too, If I want to be mentioned on IGN it's not because I want to marry her, well maybe I do but in this article I'd like to talk about the accessibility she brings to the game).
Once in a while, games are presented that capture your interest and imagination for future possibilities. This new to be released game by Ubisoft is one of those things that make me glad to be a gamer and glad that I can look forward to the new experience they are going to deliver.
After 7 long years fans of The Longest Journey will finally be able to rejoice, as an independent studio revisits the storytime universe that spawned Stark and Arcadia. You know after that big collapse the balance needs a kickstarter and that's just what Red Thread studios is doing. And I'm stoked and jumped on that band wagon because This just MUST HAPPEN!.
I've been struck with a severe version of a condition called tinnitus. The last 13 years I've been dealing with this on and off but it never has been this worse as rightnow. I just need to write this off to make it known. Rather than to keep it all for myself, I'd like to begin writing about this on my blog.
If I have alot of spair time, I like to make mock ups like these :)
Not earlier have there been so many games released with the "number 3" in it. I just found it curious and just wanted to point that out. Sorry, it's MY blog post to waste :)
This is about the game firefall and the offense that some seemingly modern young women take on seeing one character class that has one buttcheeck uncovered. There has been several controversial threads on the firefall forums about this and this is something that seriously bugs and facinates me at the same time. I need to make a blog post about this because 1. it concerns how people view firefall and 2, whenever I come across such a thread on the firefall forums it's already locked so I can't vent. Luckily this is my personal blog and I would like to take this opportunity to think out loud about this.
There's a few videogames that have the same status for me as a religion, dead space, trackmania, firefall, left 4 dead and the The Longest Journey series. I jumped up off my chair today when I heard great news about the last mentioned games. Read on!
This post is about accessability in games for the visually impaired. We all know the deaf/colorblind support but as games become increasingly realistic and pale and has increasingly more irritating "hide and shoot" AI, it becomes too difficult for a visually impaired person to enjoy games like max payne, call of duty and the likes.
