So my recommendation comes with a caveat. I really love the head popping in RE4 and RE8. It feels very weightless so it’s definitely not as good as Gears, but it being like this just gives it this very goofy quality, it feels like a slapstick punchline.

Hey, congrats on publishing your first book, that's amazing! As someone that wants more academic/philosophical writing about video games, this actually quite interesting. I understand that as theories go you're mainly citing Paul Tillich and Emmanuel Levinas, but would you mind posting some of your videograme-graphy(?) or are you not naming games directly.

#3  Edited By Fear_the_Booboo

People are not forgetting that Far Cry 3 opened with a « shitty white dudes being shitty » intro, if anything Far Cry 3 also got flak for not pushing back against its white saviour trope. Even the GB staff - which are rarely the critics that engage the most with the political and ethical aspect of video games - complained that Far Cry 3 lost all irony in its back half.

The problem was never that Far Cry games were meant to be taken as satire, the issue is that they’re tepid in doing so and have scenes that seem made to be taken seriously just before they give you a pet crocodile to kill armies with. Ubisoft seems to want to have their cake and eat it too by making « silly action game » but also have serious ass dramatic scenes delivered by ultra-charismatic villains with no irony to them.

I really hated the motion controls first go round at it, while the button controls are far from perfect and highlight that the mob fights are just bad quick-time event, I find them much more comfortable in the long run. Anyway I don’t like the combat in the game but still enjoy the exploration and the puzzles, so it’s button controls for me.

Yeah I got one and was very lucky to be in the first 20k batch, it's supposed to ship before the end of this year.

I'm interested in the games obviously but I mostly really want to fiddle with it as a hobby game dev, see what kind of stupid mechanics I can come with for the crank. I'm not sure if they talked about how people will be able to share their own game, I'm not even sure if they want to implement a way at all really, but I'll be happy to just fiddle with it.

Really surprised I managed to get one. I feel it's fairly expensive for what the games will probably be, but as a hobby game-dev I really want to fiddle with it and try to make some mechanics with the crank...

I love this dumb stuff.

I didn't know about rave.dj then, but last Christmas I made a WAP x Minuit Chrétien (french version of Oh Holy Nights) mashup for one of my friend. I hope it's OK to post the link here

I thought it was very funny that WAP starts when the dude sings about people being on their knees...

Yeah Gloomhaven in a camping trip sounds like a mess. It’s not the longest game, but the setup and the number of components is pretty complicated, so I’d say avoid bringing it on a camping trip. Even Jaws of the Lions is a complicated set-up.

@facelessryan: I mean if you’re a beginner you wouldn’t want to start with anything close to death metal I feel? I’d love to play Metal eventually but most of it is very difficult.

I’ve started learning guitar a month ago and I can do a few simple rock riffs, Rocksmith is good as a practicing tool but not as a learning tool I feel, it helps just getting used to the guitar and practicing changing frets and strings without looking, but as for technique it’s very lacking and what is there doesn’t feel well organized at all.

Ghost Trick. June 19th 2010 still counts?

It’s Ghost Trick, I’d have a hard time explaining it because of the number of moving parts but it’s such an holy shit moment, knowingly funny and out there but still heartwarming and touching.

Missile is the best.
