  1. Start and select buttons to the left and right of the touchscreen in that more zoomed in shot? I assume if it's a dev pad it wouldn't need to have labelling and correct shapes.

    What's the jump at the end of that gif - just a backwards dodge? I don't remember ever doing it but it looks totally badass there.
  3. Another one I haven't seen mentioned is people renting games through LoveFilm, Blockbusters (pfffffft) etc. At least one person I know uses this over buying new games, especially if they could be of dubious quality and I'd been considering starting it myself. Microsoft could easily start their own 'rental' service though.
  4. Two potentially unpopular sources here but I still feel like Penny Arcade gets things right occasionally: I also thought the Kotaku review was interesting, suggesting you play co-op not single player. Sadly, I doubt I'd ever get to play it co-op, the same was true of Resi 5: http://kotaku.com/59...e-kotaku-review
  5. I think it's a mixture of probably not knowing much detail about that period in history on a personal level, combined with how recent the American revolution is in relative terms. To think that history wouldn't record him does seem a bit ridiculous, other than because he was a Native American so of course he'd get left out. At the same time I feel like us in the UK are at a disadvantage because we probably don't know that much about the American Revolution, I have no idea what the significance of the battle of Lexington was for example but to someone well versed in it, it might be more excitin
  6. Just finished this tonight, I finished Connor's part of the story the night before, which only highlighted how brief the modern day ending is and the length of the God damn credits. I really did hate it by the end and just wanted it to be over but for a lot of it there was some weird compulsion (I wouldn't quite call it enjoyment) that pulled me back in and made me look forward to the next time I'd play it. Like K, I was addicted to the Homestead missions for a time, I think it was the fact that they offered the most basic glimpses of humanity and character in comparison to 'every person from
  7. It has been done before actually but I can't see that anyone else has really run with it yet: http://www.gamesradar.com/what-video-game-box-art-would-look-if-it-hadnt-changed-30-years/
  8. To be honest I'm a bit confused by it myself but they seem to be fairly easy to set up and allow other people to submit things so it doesn't have to be one person re-posting them all. I only set one up to write a comment on Alex W's but then realised that they don't really do comments. Oh.
  9. A tumblr would be a good home for them.
  10. I don't know that I am specifically trying to write reviews I suppose, my blog is just generally to get my thoughts down on paper and out of my head. I do generally enjoy the process of writing and editing but I guess sometimes I struggle to finish things off into a piece that I think someone would want to read as a whole, whether it's supposed to be a review or otherwise.
  11. That's something I've read about and do attempt but I still need a lot of practice at. Probably a combination of still being in that mindset of 'every word I write is precious' and having had this hanging around for ages so I just wanted to be done with it. I think I edit things best if I sleep on it once I've finished the basics and try to look at it later as if I was reading it for the first time. Cheers for the feedback though, I probably wouldn't have looked at it that way otherwise.
  12. Just posted this on my blog and promised myself I'd put something up here for criticism next time I got around to finishing it.

    Who has a Blog?

    I think that's probably a good point, I got started on mine just writing down what I would otherwise ramble on about to my wife, who most of the time wasn't that interested. But she recognised that there were probably people out there who would appreciate what I was going on about and I think I'm definitely better at writing things down than speaking about them anyway. One thing I'd be interested to know is whether anyone's ever considered putting ads on their site, especially if they're just writing now and then as a hobby. Obviously B**** E****** was always going on about the importance of t

    Who has a Blog?

    Ahem, well on a serious note I have one too, link in my sig. Only started it this year so I'm roughly in the same position as you, generally trying to find ways of getting more eyes on things without being obnoxious and just pimping it at every available opportunity.
