I'm thinking about a concept page for games where you can move a mouse-like cursor around freely, but the game cannot be played with a mouse (or is not designed to be). You usually see this in menus, a recent example being the Destiny beta.

Just to make sure this is a good idea and the page won't be deleted, what do you all think about it? And is there a better name than "Cursor on a Console"?

Drop a Titan on it!

says the page.

It doesn't allow you to play it with a mouse. Or raise the FOV above like, 50.

Halo is tolerable with a controller, but this game seems to really reward more precision and care.

Adding Vinny and Brad sure made the site better, because they are smart, real people. Bringing in more smart, and above all real, people will be a good thing.

Just so long as they keep out the fake-ass phony people who are all about manufacturing an image for themselves (like say, most of Kotaku), it's cool.

I liked that line.

Mainly because it was one of the few in which he didn't completely fuck up the intonation.

I have to imagine the v/a director was too much in awe of Dinklage to ever correct him or ask for another take. I've never seen him act, but I can't imagine anyone would be allowed to deliver lines that way on a big-budget HBO series.

Just confirmation bias.

There are dozens, maybe hundreds of examples of AAA new IP last generation that totally fizzled, or at least didn't earn a sequel. Lair, Haze, Dark Void, Wet, Hunted: TDF, Fracture, Folklore, Stormrise, Matt Hazard, Jericho, The Saboteur, Viking: BFA, The Club. (Seriously, remember The Club? That was a game that came out, on disks.)

Please delete Jamella. I meant for it to be a Character page.

Aliases: Identifying Loot -> Unidentified Loot, Identification, Engrams (name for unidentified items in Destiny)

No Man's Sky was pretty much revealed already.

After reading this story about Let It Die, I'm really interested in it. That trailer did a really exceptionally bad job of communicating the idea of the game.

My code begins with "EPMD", so this is already going great.
