I offer some thoughts on Ken Levine's announcement and on his concept of "narrative LEGOs". Also a little comment on some cynical twitter reaction I didn't like.

Shortly after I finished BioShock Infinite I somewhat foolishly declared it as the best game I ever played. I had convinced myself into believing that for a day under the influence of hype and very good story twist. Now I sobered and give my honest views.

As Bioshock Infinite will be upon us in a little more than a months time, I played the original Bioshock for the first time recently, something I'd been planning to do but until now never got to. Here are my thoughts on the most interesting aspects.

Good video, good advice. It 's frustrating how often this basic lesson is disregarded even in professional teams.

When I imagine a Breaking Bad video game, I want Telltale to do it, and to not use Walter White 's story, the show covered it well enough. I 'm more interested in seeing what can be done with Gustavo Fring. He 's mysterious and yet well-defined. Not much is ...

as I see it the death of consoles comes in the form of living room silent small-scale PCs built for games and steam. The PC is already a better device technically than a console, and the ability to update individual parts allows for it to not become outdated like a ...

Haven 't played FC3, but you have a point about drama being created by conflict. It seems like in games, this conflict is misunderstood to be provided in the form of combat, which really isn 't conflict at all from a drama point of view.
