One for fun (Earth Defence Force 2017)

I need this game. Playing the average run’n’gun game there’s usually a ton of inane exposition and preparation to go through before you get to the meat of the game. It’s like developers are ashamed to keep things simple. Like

Goddamn you Capcom! (Dead Rising, HDTV vs. SDTV)

I’ve talked about the too small on-screen fonts in Xbox 360 games before, but now I’ve really had it. I bought Dead Rising yesterday and I plain cannot read the in-game subtitles. Cutscenes are alright, tutorials are barely legible, but

These games are why I bother despite pushing 30 (Best of Everything)

I’ve recently thought about my favorite games a lot. Some of this was sparked by buying the 360, which made me think if there even was anything truly new to play to justify the purchase. Some of it is due

Wannabe game producer’s confessions

I want to be a professional game producer. I think I am on the right track, having worked my way to a project manager’s position in a media development company. I do understand that I need some actual game development

The one-handed 360 controller (Disability rant, part II)

I find it strange that it takes a hobbyist without a disability to deal with to come up with a thing like the one-handed 360 controller. The guy says he did this because he’s been asked to, I take it

Filling in the blanks (Uplink, Defcon, Splinter Cell: Double Agent)

I was getting into Uplink (2001) again and – again – marvelled at how atmospheric it is. I can totally believe I’m a hacker, doing illegit things to other people’s networks and data. This does not require any imagination on

On disability (Nintendo Wii)

I am a healthy person. Regardless, I can’t play Burnout for more than around half an hour at a time: I can’t keep gas (RT) and nitro (A) down all the time without my right hand aching. I have often

Massively Multiplayer (EVE, Stormreach, World Of Warcraft, CCP + White Wolf)

I’ve been intrigued by the massively multiplayer games for a long time. I’ve played some Anarchy Online and tried free demos of a couple of others, but haven’t really gotten into any of them, mostly due to the grind of
