Also, Kara from Detroit seems to be a surrogate mother of sorts if the girl manages to live through the game.

Give me a Kill Bill style game and I'm in.

Yeah, there are already a few, even though they are far in between, video-games already do have some kick-ass moms and mother figures.

rainslacker2228d ago (Edited 2228d ago )

Personally, I think Pratchett should worry about getting Lara right and interesting before she worried about making a story about moms to interject into the gaming medium. Her idea of strong women is pretty laughable, because she gives them as many character flaws as possible to make you empathize with them, then just makes them kick ass because they have to be. No depth whatsoever.

She's extremely overrated IMO, and if it weren't for her dad's career, I doubt she ever would have gotten any attention to ever get a job writing the story for a high profile AAA IP.

A very "slimey" thing to do right Phil???

Anyhow ive never trusted IGN, corrupt to the core.

Killer2020UK19h ago

And now they own a load of other gaming outlets. Sucks for the consumer

It's not scummy... how is this any different than any late night talk show for the past 60 years. People are cued when to cheer, partially artificial I am sure. It's also good for IGN, last thing they want is THEIR show to be a dud.

I would definitely do it if I owned IGN, especially getting someone huge like Phil.

S2Killinit18h ago(Edited 18h ago)

I’ve been saying for years that IGN is MS’s mouthpiece.

fr0sty18h ago

@roadkillers... I dunno, maybe because late night talk shows aren't asking people to cheer for hundreds of people losing their jobs?

ravens5217h ago

Late Night Talk Show vs Consumer Showcase/Interview. How are you even putting them in the same category. One is for pure entertainment the other is an interview based on a product.

PRIMORDUS16h ago

And how much is MS worth? 3 trllion and Phil the piece of shit saying "the closures are very hard, but needed for sustainable business" Really? Your worth 3 trillion and the closures were no where near necessary. I don't know about you but I want this asshole to just leave and resign. He's just cancer to the industry.

jjb198110h ago

Roadkillers can't wait to have huge Phil. It makes sense.

It's crazy. Some of the top people at IGN are really great, but the organization as a whole just continually finds itself in controversy.

Lightning7718h ago

It's all for recognition and publicity. Which doesn't work. It was all staged and disingenuous.

Hard to trust anything IGN does especially now they have a monopoly.

VenomUK9h ago

I’ve watched the clip. To be fair, whenever you are hosting an event with an audience it’s standard to hype them up as a reactive audience is better for the energy in the room which translates well for viewers at home. It’s the reason comedians have warm up acts and TV shows too. I don’t think at any point there was an instruction from Microsoft to do that. This narrative is silly.

What I would focus on is this IGN pandering event not being live, in front of a specially selected audience and fanboy presenter Ryan McCaffrey who asked lowball questions and didn’t really follow up the difficult topics with any bite- this was a lack of integrity.
