Re: 234 - Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Rewards

I think that sounds fine, as long as the list isn't very prominent. I'm not the kind of person that normally cares for such a thing, but if you held the number up to me and told me I missed stuff while I'm playing, then I would definitely care and it would take me out of the experience. As long as y...

Re: The active Kickstarter projects discussion thread.

Strafe has a hilarious video that really sells the campaign. I'm envious we didn't have anything as clever for Neverending Nightmares. Mmm. Shoulda gone with Hypersmell(tm). Seriously though, Strafe looks awesome. I thought it looked neat, but when the hallway was full of the corrosive orange goo a...

Re: Action movie guilty pleasures

I'm just gonna leave this here. This 5 minute long sequence is a masterpiece, better and more entertaining than anything I could possibly hope to produce in my lifetime. It just keeps getting better and better and makes less and less sense the longer it goes on: 68Ku6WnksIU The stuff that comes out ...

Re: Guilty Pleasure Games

Winback: Covert Operations will always be this for me. It hasn't aged well at all. It has those weird, ghastly, empty-office-buildings-and-astroturf early 3D environments that feel really empty and make my skin crawl. I don't know what it is exactly, I only get that feeling in games made during one ...

Re: 234 - Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Rewards

Hm. I do like the idea of a map that changes every time you look at it, although I'm sure you could achieve the desired effect while still keeping it functionally useful each time you use it. Like if it's the floorplan for the building, but every time you look at it, there's different drawings or sc...

Re: Has anyone played Five Nights at Freddie's?

I gotta say that I love the direction that he's taking Five Nights at Freddy's 3, like a Wes Craven-ish meta sequel. The events from the first two games have become a local legend, and the new owners of the old pizzeria have converted it into a haunted house attraction. It's still a bit early to tel...

Oh come on. Who picked these nominees!? You lost out on a nomination for best gore to Diablo 3?

Re: Developer Diaries suggestions

Speaking of Samba De Amigo maracas...you've made it clear by now that you're a sucker for gimmicky games and you love peripherals and hardware and such, but if you could make a game centered around its own custom peripheral, what would you do? This is assuming that you had a publisher willing to man...

Re: 224 - Great Games in Genres I Don't Like

Rareware really got screwed by Microsoft. On the one hand, I'm really glad, but on the other, I fear they haven't learned their lesson from Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts... But on the other, other hand, Blast Corps is what Hollywood execs would call a "script-proof" concept. It would prob...

Re: Brainstorming

In the development road map, they said they'll eventually add a broom and dustpan, to help group bits together and make cleaning shell casings easier. No, there are no horror elements, it's entirely silly. The developers have a very sadistic sense of humor, and try to beleaguer you every way they ca...
