Microsoft fucked its fans good. No condom. No lubricant. Just an AIDS-infested cock of casual gaming, right in the ass! Now, the Xbox fans are too sore to sit down, which is convenient, since Kinect forces you to stand up. Waggling your arms, jumping, and shifting your body, has become the heart of the Xbox experience. This is great for soccer moms and fat fuck dudebros trying to lose weight (hey they have be able to look down and see their penis one day, right?). However, aside from the typical rehashes, the core gamers have been thrown to the curb like a hooker who came up short for her pimp. The sad part is, the 360 is profiting like never before. Expect micro-SOFT to be in the gaming business for quite some time, finding new ways to pump estrogen in its forthcoming offerings.
People who believe in Gentleman Gaming may have come off of this e3 feeling terribly disappointed (beyond the all-around terrible press conferences). Indeed, games that focus on original experiences, rewarding intelligence, substantial gameplay, non-linear approaches, creative control for the players and good level design seems to have been mostly replaced by this bullshit “cinematic” games plaguing our industry. You know what I’m talking about, those games which seem to play itself, putting an emphasis on set-pieces, quick-time-events and sections that reduce gameplay to following on-screen prompts. Those games follow the Michael Bay school of design designed for ADHD audiences totally loses faith that gamers could want even a tiny-bit of challenges or intelligent designs that makes us think for at least a couple of seconds.
But I digress. There is no reason to throw the gaming towel just yet, for there are still plenty of games to be excited about, even if they weren’t the top headlines of the mainstream convention (or even at e3 at all). Unfortunately we don’t have that much information on some of these games, but they are definitely worth to keep an eye out.
Please return your seat backs to their full, upright and locked position – How Spec Ops: The Line attempts to change the way we think about shooters.
We take a look at Spec Ops: The Line, in what turns out to be one of the most surprising, interesting and ultimately conflicting game so far this year.
In the latest of “spitting in the hopes of classic games fans”, EA has decided to announce their latest attempt to bring back the Ultima series as a cartoony Free-To-Play RPG developed by Bioware, in which you get the choice to… either play as a fighter or as a mage.
Ultima is considered to be the grand-daddy of wRPGs, with Ultima VII being one of the landmarks in gaming. Ultima has been known for its rich lore, expansive storyline and epic quests, and now it sounds more and more like the latest installment will be some facebook game or something similar.
Thank god for modern gaming. Don’t get me wrong, there are still great classic wRPGs in the making, but this kind of news can be really depressing sometimes.
