I wonder why Unreal Tournament seems more popular then Quake. I also prefer UT but that's simply because it's what I played with my friend. I have no opinion on Quake really.

I assume it has to be things like this that put UT in the lead, since people who "know" seem to always prefer Quake.

So what was it?

Better marketing? Better demo distribution? Easier to pirate? I remember it looking way more impressive then Quake, so it'd win the war of "New and Shiny > Something Good" as is always the case. Better hardware compatibility with ye old vidyeocards?

Or was UT actually just a better game then Quake?

This could be cool. It definitely seems like Mutant Year Zero only with less personality and... just less interesting in general.

But looking at it as MYZ The VR Missions? I'm kind of super down for more of *this* style of gameplay while I wait for a, hopefully, sequel to Mutant.

Watching Alex just roll on folks one after another is a tad troubling I admit. I mean that's exactly how you play Mutant but it was never quite so straight forward as it seems here. Maybe Alex just has an OP loadout at this point?

But yeah. This studio is rad. I'll play this if it comes to something I own.

Bubble Bobble is probably the best "bad" game ever. Love it so much.

It just slays me every single time the overworld theme starts up.

Ben's description of Elderborn as "Dark Souls" makes me think someone needs to get him a copy of Dark Souls. He might like it if he tried one.

Hmmm. I wonder if it's not disingenuous to load save states every time Brad dies in a X-1. It guarantees full lives for X-2 forward regardless of poor play.

Now *I* don't care... but I'm looking out for the integrity of Brad's plight. Or something :p

The multiplayer thing of DS & the letter game vs Apex really stands our to me.

The former is about engendering a sense of team work, comradery, etc, amongst strangers on the internet playing videogames.

Apex is about trying to systemically mitigate the horrors of strangers on the internet playing videogames.

That they're given equal weight, in a sense, I think says a lot about what multiplayer games are these days. I don't mean that in a nice way either.

I'm with Brad there on the idea of the one engendering a bit of hope in other people not all being awful.

Apex's stuff is just this slippery slope of saying the terrible people are here to stay, but if you mute chat we have context sensitive voice clips that say "Thank you" so that you don't feel bad about playing on a team of white supremacists.

Apex's systems are a fresh coat of white wash on top of the internet's usual poison. I don't know if that's "cool".

I'm not sure it's not actually bad.
