  1. It's the difference between a developer which specialises in shooting games, having made one of the most influential FPSes ever and one of the most fun and imaginative modern examples... And a developer that does RPGs awkwardly married with functional third person shooters.

    I am sure Rugby fans were subject to the same treatment.

    Best implementation of the worst features

    The original Crackdown is possibly the only collectathon I have ever loved. I have played a lot of games with similar collectibles since, chasing that high, but none has ever got even remotely close to that. I don't know what the special sauce was that every other developer missed, even those specifically ripping that game off like Saints Row 4.
  4. At that point the line is arguably blurred between cinema and other visual art forms that happen to be filmed. You can film a play with one camera in a single take and show it in a cinema, is that a film? Maybe I'm engaged in special pleading however.

    Anyone who follows Scottish football, Open Goal is a good youtube channel where former Swindon and current Peterhead player Si Ferry interviews figures from Scottish football. Ferry isn't really a good interviewer per se*, but he really disarms his interviewees who are usually far more relaxed and open than you ever normally see from footballers This one with talented journeyman Paul Hartley is excellent. Some very entertaining anecdotes about the ambitious chaos that was Hearts under the ownership of Mad Vlad Romanov, one of the most bizarre people ever to own a football club in the UK. The win bonuses they were on, holy shit. Hartley was brilliant for Celtic when we won seven games in a row to steal the title in 2008. The kind of pure steel and determination you need in a season like that. *he belabours his theme of 'young players have it too easy these days, ken, eh' too much. In modern day Scotland, Jermaine Defoe is completely finished, looks like a terrible signing for Rangers.
  6. Had my most fun game of it last night, taking charge and wrangling a couple of confused-seeming players to third. Survived several battles and wiped squads in part thanks to Lifeline's revives. At the end two of us were hunkered in a building with an air strike coming in and blowing the bloody doors off for our attackers to get in and successfully overwhelm us - they must have known exactly where we were, as the circle had several buildings. One of the other two went idle two thirds of the way through sadly or we might have pulled it off.

    God, the parents in this are the absolute worst. What an infuriating, baffling story.

    Celtic seem more keen to try to show we can pass the ball (which we can't, at this level) than to win the game - Valencia are better on the ball than us, we should be playing more direct football. With Burke, Forrest and Sinclair have an extremely fast attack, make use of it.

    You can put him down temporarily if you need to get round him.

    Rangers issuing angry, bitter statements because their players are for once actually getting punished for the dirty play Gerrard has introduced as a key part of their approach this season. It's quite funny.

    There were a few arses around the internet saying the layoffs were only tech support and admin staff, not developers (as if it makes it OK that it's the lower paid staff getting fired), so it has been misreported by EVIL MEDIA. It isn't true anyway, here for example is an animator.

    A nice fiery article about this over at Waypoint https://waypoint.vice.com/en_us/article/yw83kg/activision-blizzard-reports-record-revenue-as-they-fuck-over-800-employees The video game industry needs proper unions.
