Mel discusses episodic game releases this week, both their ups and downs. Adopting a release schedule like this could take off with more publishers as it meets success with others, but will it always be that way? Weigh in on Mel’s prognosis!
How Ethos was able to drone on about absolutely nothing for almost a thousand words is anybody’s guess. Read and respond to his mad rambles, if only to give company to a man whose sanity is dissolving.
Wow, how does Bup keep writing these articles?! No, seriously: how does he do it? How does he have so much life force to give each week so he can muster up the strength to write about these crappy games. Someone help him!
Despite being sent to work the LusipurrCorp orichalcum mine (Lusipurr wants rims for his car), Java still manages to find time to play Bravely Default, and still wants to talk about it. One would think he would be over it by now. This week? Predictions!
Mel discusses cheap and lazy ploys to get attention and appeal in gaming. Whether it is re-releases, self referencing, or out of place social issues, gaming has been rife with examples of pandering to players’ base interests. Join the discussion!
This week, Ethos makes bad analogies, talks about RPGs, a physics-based couch co-op game, the New Nintendo 3DS XL, and even dabbles in a little renovation discussion. Who would not want to read all that?
Wow! Another week of horrible, crappy Xbox Live Indie Games! Bup cannot wait to show you what he has in store this time!
With little else to do in his evening holding pen, Java turns to adventures where choice seems to matter. Life is Strange and Telltale’s Game of Thrones both offer player choice in two different ways. Is one better than the other? Java wants to find out.
Mel looks at remasters this week in both a positive and negative light. Older titles were often unbound by the obsequious practices of modern gaming, which is nice, but a flood of remasters would be far from nice! Flood the comments and be nice (or not)!
After a few weeks of Majora’s Mask, Ethos is back to his old self with his return to Editorial Miscellany. That is correct, he wanders aimlessly across topics in true mediocre form. Meeting middling expectations: that is the Ethos guarantee.
