The game was fun to play but that story was atrocious. It felt like it was written by juveniles.

News Comments > Smithsonian Game Exhibit Planned
1. Re: Smithsonian Game Exhibit Planned Dec 7, 2009, 18:48 the_culture
 
this exhibition will be the first to examine comprehensively the evolution of video games themselves as an artistic medium.

Quick, someone tell Roger Ebert!


This is in D.C., right? Too bad I'm on the west coast, I'd like to see that exhibit.

Are you kidding? For a video game this had some truly tense moments and lets be honest some of the best horror out there still makes use of cheap scares.

No, I'm not. I guess it's because I associate survival horror with psychological horror. EA's games all have this Hollywood sheen to them, as if Michael Bay is involved.

Don't get me wrong, I beat Dead Space and thought it was fun, and it definitely had fantastic sound design. But it also used every cliche in the book.

I just hope they do away with the cheap scares and actually bring some genuine horror and tension to the game.

Uh, size has no real correlation with the amount of content in the game. It could be 5GB of empty planets again with cut and paste quests.

Or it might not, seeing as how you haven't played the game either.

What *is* the definitive FPS?

Half-life

It was when I realized FPS games could be so much more.

The Spike VGAs are a joke. Are people really interested in this crap? I'm surprised industry veterans even show up.

can anyone vouch for the 'new' First Encounter?

Just got it and played the first few levels. It really is an exact remake. I was hoping they would improve the weapon sounds and animations (I forgot how annoying the shotgun sounded).

But it's still fun fun fun.

Apple already has more than 100,000 apps, a large percentage of which are video games and, at this very moment, games make more than half of its top ten highest grossing apps.

While that may be true, I think it's also the audience behind the platforms. I would guess many iPhone users are not smartphone power users (i.e. business related), so you would have more users who are into games and other "non-vital" apps.

Maybe many of the Android users are business oriented and thus do not have a need for games on their phone. Just something to think about...

Not to mention a good terabtye drive costs less than $100.00 these days...

Yeah, I really need to upgrade my 75Gb WD Raptor. New Egg has a 1TB Seagate for $85 or so. I think I'll get that.

Specs look pretty good. But 15GB for HDD space? Holy crap, that's a lot. I think Dragon Age and GTA IV used 15GB each as well. I guess that's just the future of gaming now...

Based on everyone's comments (yes, even the negative ones), I went ahead and picked it up for the PS3.

Yeah, that's how awesome I am!

Wasn't the first one hideously buggy, though?q]

I heard it was buggy, but I believe Mercs2 was worse.

I wanted to like the first game but there was too many things that irritated me. Does A2 have more variety? And how much time do you spend in the "modern" setting? The story and acting during those phases were just horrid.

I want to pick up A2 but not if it's like the first one.


Off Topic: I see Blue has added forum rules reminders. I hope that helps; forums have been getting out of hand as of late.

I feel depressed watching these videos. I loved BioShock (beat it 3 times) and was really looking forward to part 2. But these videos are just horrid.

Arrhhh.
