How is it "ruining everything" if people to want to see their race represented a little more in video games? How would making more game characters non-white detract from a video game? o.O
I guess it could be argued that minority groups still buy games because the alternative is not not be a gamer at all. That doesn't mean devs shouldn't try to be more inclusive though.
I doubt an employee is going to be fired for a measly forum message. That's called wrongful dismissal. And while they ARE a company who's primary target is to advertise their product and make money, the company is still made up of a group of people who have put their time and effort into making a game for people to enjoy. So I can definitely see why it would be disheartening to release a beta (something they didn't even need to do) and get nothing but "This ...
Eh. It's only a forum message, tbh. I doubt he's going to put off too many people from buying the game with a mere forum message.
It's good to see gaers in general getting recognized. It's nice seeing positive aricles about gamers on N4g, instead of the same old "gamers are eeeeevil" or "gamers are murderers" crap.
It's awesome how much detail has gone into the game. Even just small things like making Drake walk slower and more clumsily in the sand. It all helps add to the realism.
Wow. Space Channel 5. That brings back memories.
"Although taking place in the same universe as FF13, there is no direct connection to the other games other than them being part of the same series called the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy, defined as New Tales of the Crystal. " Call me crazy, but I thought Square dropped the whole "set in the same universe" thing?
I think it depends on the kid, tbh. Some will be able to handle M-rated games, while others won't be. Heck, I remember I was pretty young when Silent Hill was first released, and it ended up giving me nightmares. :O So my parents did the sensible thing and took the game away from me, and didn't let me play it until I was older. More parents should do that sort of thing tbh, instead of blaming the games/developers and going straight to the media about it. 1771d ago 2 agree0 disagreeView comment
It's not really a spoiler, tbh. The game makes it pretty clear early on that it will be Snake's final mission. But that's not why we play MGS4, after all. We play MGS4 to find out all the answers to the unanswered questions from previous games ;) The rest is stuff that was said in the earlier games (like Snake not being able to have kids...iirc that was revealed in MGS1).
IIRC she's a model and an actress too. :)
I'm surprised more devs don't do that, tbh. Not only because it would help appeal to a larger audience of gamers, but also because it would be nice to have a bit more variety in game characters. There are so any different looking people in the world, so it's weird that many game devs stick to "generic white marine" or "generic sexy white/asian lady" when there are so many different combinations of facial features and skin tones that could be used to create a un...
I would definitely play a game with an eskimo as the main character! :D
"6. Solid Snake" "Just retire Old Snake, spend some time with your grand kids or something." Um...the author does know MGS4 exists, right? Snake DID retire. The fact that this was his final mission is kinda a big point in the game. o.O Also, Snake doesn't have grandkids, since he biologically can't have kids. That's also a big point in the MGS games. The author either needs to do more research, or needs to stop...
It's really noticeable how different RE5 was in comparison to the other games when all the games are put together in a video like this. With that being said, what an epic video! Really brings back memories of my childhood and playing the old RE games with the lights off to add to the scary atmosphere. :D
Hmmm...I don't know why, but when it was first announced that RE4 and Code Veronica would be $20, I assumed that meant together. Not each. I'd love to replay both games. But I don't know if I'm willing to fork out $40 to play two last-gen games that I've already played, tbh. Especially with so little added features or extras.
I will forever be disappointed that we never saw more of Vergil after DMC3. He's such a great character.
It is her. It was (surprisingly) the only picture I could find on google of a Japanese girl gaming. :O
Can ya blame them? I don't know about anyone else, but if I was living in the Gears universe with the threat of constantly being under attack by an alien race, I'd be bulking up my body too. :O
"People call Cloud a whiny Emo, when he is only for a brief moment after he kicks the shi* out of Aerith" I can't help but think the people who believe Cloud is whiny/emo have let the Compilation ruin their perception of him. Because he was actually quite cheery and talkative in the original game. Even when he found out the truth about Zack towards the end of FFVII, and reverted back to his 'normal' self, he was still the same ol' spikey-headed dork ...
