The life-sucking vampire thing reminds me that one of the Tales games has a twist where every time you use magic in certain situations you are killing a sentient spirit. Unfortunately this is a story only twist and the mechanics completely avoid it.

You could make the argument ...

You could make the argument that World of Warcraft and other MMOs are like this by necessity. The big difference it that they pretend you are important and can actually change anything. I do like the idea of worlds that really are indifferent to the player 's existence. Minecraft is ...

Though there is one level where the telepod must be placed on a surface that will open minimal spoilers, I hope ... I remember thinking it was fairly neat, but also that it wasn 't behaving like I expected. And then I wished more levels used variations on that. The ...

How very strange on MS 's side. It 's not like they can make Minecraft retroactively exclusive very well. And Mojang is not going to produce another IP with the explosive popularity of Minecraft that 's a one in a million for anyone . r n r nPerhaps Minecraft Next ...

My apologies to the actual people who had to suffer through this, but I find it kind of cathartic and amusing to think of the Marketing department being the voice of caution and frantically doing damage control when people who aren 't Sales and Marketing are making outrageous promises about ...

Using the eShop on the Wii U is convoluted and confusing enough that you 've really got to be determined to use it. At least I found it to be when I went looking for something, and haven 't been back since. r n r nI regularly use PSN, Steam, ...
