I 've been told you ...

I 've been told you can also tile a sphere with hexagons using 8 squares, as an alternative to using 12 pentagons. r n r nM last game actually had the game world set on a planet sphere with hex and 12 pentagons grid. I incorporated the pentagons into the ...

In the RL conference scenario, the kid in question would only likely to spend an hour or two at most in the same room as those other industry veterans, and can only engage with a limited number in that time. Whereas online, it 's everyone dog-piling in, and it 's ...

There are downsides to that ...

There are downsides to that approach. You 'll always be picking games up after they 've come to PC or other platforms. Those games won 't be designed to use the specific hardware E.g. Kinect. And there 'll be higher instances of the one that got away : devs with ...

Yeah, I wondered if it might be something along those lines : r n r nWith the blinking, wasn 't specified, but the impression I got was it was a repetitive strain injury sort of thing. If you spend several hours a day repeatedly winking in anger, over time, that ...

If you don 't like ...

If you don 't like the stereotyping, prove it wrong. Right now, I don 't see gamers as a group publicly naming and shaming those people harassing women online. r n r nWhilst at the same time I do see them criticising the journalists who are actually doing all that ...

I 'm kinda hoping that Wii U isn 't just the usual crowd, but a way to reach a slightly different audience than Steam or other consoles. r n r nFor indies, even though the eShop on Wii U is slowly filling up with more games, it 's still a ...

Having some media jockey occasionally poke fun at gamers ' lack of sophistication hardly makes them an oppressed group. No one ever got put in prison or attacked on the street or got turned down for a job just for liking video games

I guess most studios see mobile and pc getting ever more crowded, whilst consoles represent more opportunities. r n r nAlso, I wonder how much of this is game devs who always played on consoles themselves and see now as the chance to finally make a game for one.

It ought to be possible to build a game with a long shelf life. A case of creating a game that on the surface, you can play in 2 to 5 minute cycles, but which allows players to go much deeper. As well, building a strong IP to go with ...
