Why is it that every time I watch these videos my eyes are always drawn to her chest. Must be the neat shirts.
Correct pronunciation: Tom-ash-KIEV-itch.
'W' in Slavic languages (e.g. Polish, Russian) is pronunced like 'V'. Similar in German: Wolfenstein is pronunced 'vol-FEN-shtain'.
A closed word game tells a better story as compared to an open world game.. You tend to loiter around the game environment more than required doing quests here and there which kind of gets you mixed up with the actual story of the game.... o.O
Phil Fish should do something very cliche like finding himself or fish further down the stream. Okay, that was lame but the point still stands that the best thing he could do right now is avoid the internet and the like and just spend time sorting out himself on a personal level.
Closed world generally sucks. It is the reason I've always been attracted to RPGs, and recently having played games like Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age Origins this idea of linear being rubbish has hit home hard, since I didn't even reach the end of Dragon Age before getting bored of it.
I can't wait for Witcher 3. Even if that game was totally closed I'd still want its babies! Becoming open is the best thing I can think of.
The Witcher 3 isn't really going to break new grounds in terms of open world gameplay but I know they'll do a top notch job of it.
The only thing missing from Witcher 2 was the ability to stray far from the linear story,everything else was amazing from the graphics, gameplay, art and animation, combat and especially the story which was very adult without overusing swear words like so many games these days. When Harsh dialoge is used right it can really help convey how the person feels but when it's overused it just seems forced.
The Witcher 3 must be my most anticipated game right up there with GTA V and The Division.
I think I've got a new entry in to my top #3 freebies. I wonder how many proposals Jess receives on any given day? Via the internet? Is it a form of abuse, unwanted attention, harmless fun or automatically filtered in to the trash bin?
I like Fez and is a shame Fez II isn't going to be made but I found myself unable to feel sorry for Phil Fish as he does come across as abit of a arse.
Open world alone doesnt make game interesting, its what can you do in open world. Behind your window is open world, but that doesn make life interesting by default, its what you can do in it. I supouse
I am planning to play Bioshock infinite but I haven't played first two games.
Will I miss too much if I start with infinite now and is the storyline continued or related to first two games?
Should it matter to us if Phil Fish is a great guy or not? I don't think so, lots of singers, musicians, artists etc are/were not likeable. It won't stop me appreciating the art they bring to life. I hope for his sake he realises that whatever industry he's in he'll have to deal with prats, because the world is full of them. You can't live under a rock forever Fish. Do what you love, don't let the petty nothings, the haters bring you down. Keep your head down, delete your facebook, twitter etc and make a patch for Fez at least.
Even though I'm not a huge indie game player, I admire and respect what they do and the commitment they put into their work. The idea that people would bash on an artistic and clever game like Fez is just stupid. Games like these show how the industry has evolved from simple minded shooters like CoD and GTA. That being said, people who reject creative story lines and art in games show how little some have evolved, and how dearly they cling to blowing peoples' heads off for the hell of it.
I don't think that it is appropriate to compare open world, on-rails, and semi-open world story telling side by side in a linear fashion about which is "better". The mediums lend themselves to very different pacing and narrative allowances and constrictions. I think that a semi-open world, like that in the Mass Effect series, is great letting players choose the pace of, and in some cases the direction of, the story being told, but if the narrative requires a known pace, then a more closed world setting is preferred, such as that in Half Life. An open world game is, in my opinion, the most difficult scenario in which to tell a story because the pacing is left up almost completely to the player, so control over, for instance, the time between climaxes is lost and the story can feel flat or too rushed.
Plus, open world games are very bad for completionist players. We don't know when we are "done". I am a personal fan of the semi-open world, and I enjoy a properly paced closed world like Half Life.
It's amazing how many people were butthurt by Phil Fishes comments(even though he was right most of the time).Now they're calling him a coward for backing off, or that he should learn to take it. But the fact that he has lived with this abuse for so long is proof enough of his strength. Now the man is forced to leave his dream.
Just think for a moment for some of the things he said. He always had a good point and he had the guts to say it (though he was a bit rude). Final thought, every modern japanese game except Dark Souls and Street Fighter DOES suck.
@battle-droid OMG! you're making the same stupid comment on every single one of her video? Seriously man you're mentally ill. You need help!!!!
@angry_cowtipper YOu mean Jodie? kinda asking myself about that as well. I guess she is focusing different kind of work right now, But she's still work at gamespot though.
@Tribesmaster I saw portal with female trying to get portled
@Tribesmaster It actually is a really neat shirt!
@ziggyww I think the guy is entitled to have a bad day and the gaming media can be extremely entitled.
@ziggyww He certainly didn't handle it well.
@SOLDIER-No2 Well, Almost all open world games are nicely done, in terms of story, musical score, cinematics, action, and overall as a game. LA Noire is one-of-a-kind for a detective story. Assassin's Creed has more ways to play in free form. GTA is a story-turned-tripping game, for me. The FF XIII series is nicely done, but bland storytelling.
Is there any other games I didn't mention?
@Rajiv_psn buy the first one and get bioshock inf after - it will explain certain things in inf :3
but it's not NEEDED, but i recomment it. The second one you can pretty much skip - but i wouldnt recomment against it either
@Rajiv_psn i played a bit of the first one, didn't finish it, then i got to infinite and it amazed me. i will play the first ones because of the dlc now i guess.
@Rajiv_psn Dude, play the first two games. SO. GOOD.
@Rajiv_psn Infinite is not continued where BioShock ended. It's a different story with defferent characters. If having to play BioShock means you wont't play at all, then just play Infinite.
That said, there are some subtle placements and concepts in Infinite that you will appreciate more if you've played BioShock.
You can however, skip 2. There is nothingthere you will see that will enhance your playing of Infinite like the first will.
In short, you can play Infinite stand alone and be amazed. But it will mean more to you if you also played the first.
@Rajiv_psn Amazon has a dualpack for Steam download codes for both Bioshock 1 + 2 for $5 TOTAL right now. I highly suggest you head over there now and get those codes before the deal ends soon.
@Rajiv_psn play them all they are great games especially the first one
@rawkstar007 u crazy guy u
@faizanhd ...and Demon's Souls ;-)
" every modern japanese game except Dark Souls and Street Fighter DOES suck."
Nintendo franchises, Ni No Kuni, Xenoblade: Chronicles, Pandora's: Tower, The Last Story, Catherine, Blazblue, Tales of series, and much more.
@faizanhd I'm pretty sure faizan is trolling pretty hard, here. That or we got doused with the sarcasm sauce so hard that we don't know what hit us.
I think it's a little of both. You think so? I think so.
@faizanhd That is of course, your opinion. Developing one game doesn´t give the man the right to be a douchebag. Plus he forgot to remember that it´s been the japanese the ones that have been pioneers in gaming. But I doubt that is something someone who would throw bitchfits every now and then would recall.
@Rooten Practice will do that to you
@UdderJuice A day yeah but with him it isn't a day that's how he is.
A Japanese man asks him a simple question about modern Japanese games and Phil's response was "JAPANESE GAMES SUCK"
Also check out his tweeter feed but way back before any of this happened the guy has a clear attitude on him and seems to think he is far greater then he actually is. My impression of the guy is that he thinks so highly of himself that he thinks cancelling Fez II is away to hurt us by denying us access to HIS game.
The guy undoubtedly has a serious egocentric problem
WOW..................... those games SUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you hear yourself ? Granted Ni No Kuni was good (thank you Ghibli). But Pandoras Tower and The Last Story ? Are you a hipster or something ? Blazblue is just complex and nothing else. No balance and a very small number of players online. Just grow up and accept facts will you .
He's only a douchebag if you don't try to understand what he's saying.People react like children instead of putting up a constructed argument. I wouldn't say japanese are THE pioneers( anyone remember ATARI ?, you know , the people who made THE FIRST commercial video games ?).
@UdderJuice Also just look at his Twitter picture its of Andy Kaufman as if Phil Fish is as miss understood or as talented as Andy Kaufman.
Granted some of those games you mentioned may not be to your taste but they are quite well received by people. You're not really giving any of us anything to go on to convince us to take you seriously. It's just one blanket statement or insult after another without any facts, ratings, or numbers to back up your claims.
