Theme adjustment

July 10, 2009 Leave a comment

The theme of the blog has been adjusted to reflect the attitude conveyed by our endless ramblings about “The War”, such nonsense as psycholinguistics and the general feeling of mild snobbery. I suggest readying an early session of tea and crumpets and listening to this whilst viewing the site from now on:

I am not sure how long this theme will last so all of you that accidentally ended up here looking for real Spore news enjoy it while you can.

Remember when people finished games before releasing them? Games had their share of bugs to be sure, but for the most part the lack of any way to alter the shipped product post release meant that developers had to work long and hard to ensure that as many bugs as possible were squashed pre-release. This is not the case in this day and age, because while downloadable content allows for wonderful new experiences, it also allows developers to release unfinished products and expect player’s money and faith.

Mirror’s Edge PC demo: come on DICE

January 17, 2009 3 comments

Dice, a company that is most renowned for its work on the Battlefield series, has neglected to release a demo for its recently-released PC title Mirror’s Edge. Most often, the PC version of a demo is the most valuable, many people will use it as a canary would be used in a mine shaft. If the demo runs great and controls well, I will most definitely go buy the game. But until then I suppose one can only hope that DICE, who reached fame on the PC, will stoop to support its bastardized child of a platform with a Mirror’s Edge demo. Thanks DICE.
