    Look, I get people freaking out... but man, anything that gets Minecraft working on PCs without some janky Java stuff for the client is probably a good thing.

    @rethla: I agree with you, the game isn't about a meaningful story, it's about the parlor trick of piecing together a story from out-of sequence video clips.That's the part that kind of sucks.If the p...

    @rethla: I don't think that's true. Plenty of games don't feel shallow, both narrative and purely mechanical ones.

    @beb said: Honestly, both the twin theory and the split personality theory are far fetched. They are a "cheap" twist for a murder mystery in general, but I am OK with how this game uses the ideas to ...

  • NoelVeiga posted a message on the post Quick Look: Her Story.

    So it seems I'm deeply in the minority about this one. I guess I was about Shattered Memories as well, for similar reasons.The story felt trite to me. The big twist is rather silly, the acting a bit s...

    Nice, deep piece. I'm not commenting on it because, hey, I mostly agree with you and a lot of people are working their way through it that have divergent views than mine, so why bother.BUTBut this?@a...

  • NoelVeiga posted a message on the post On The Witcher 3, Race, and Historicity.

    If we're talking about diversity in gaming I'd like to go further than race. I feel that there's more diversity in creators than in settings, for instance. Witcher is imbued by Polish themes, but will...

    Well, somebody making videos at Gearbox has STYYYYLE because there's definitely some DNA from this here:Which is, incidentally, still by far the best thing about Borderlands.

    I don´t know if this feature will survive to get to the portable stuff... but man, if it does don't skip the portable stuff. The portable stuff is great. Well, maybe you can skip the original GB and G...

    *sigh*There is a hip hop scene everywhere. Sometimes the local hip hop scene is as big or bigger as the US hip hop.Neither of those variants is anywhere close to making a mainstream dent, beyond vers...

    I can´t answer Jeff's question about hip hop games, but I can provide this piece of info.Kinda nobody cares about American hip-hop outside of America and maaaaybe the UK in any sort of large numbers....

    The vibe of this is amazing. This is now on my radar, for sure.I'll say that I wish they had faked some more 3D movement into it, though. I see how that adds a ton to how complex it is to pilot and c...

  • NoelVeiga posted a message on the post Behind the Scenes of the Big Live Live Show.

    Bit of a shame that the Premium stream and the control room bled so much sound into the main feed. Offices aren't studios, doors are kind of a must if you're shooting multiple stages at once.Still, m...

    The PSTV there is a big factor. I mean, the Vita works very well with your PS4. If your TV is ever in dispute or if you feel that playing your indie PS4 games on the go with crossplay is a big deal fo...
