These 'games make people who play them more hostile' studies make me so mad I want to strangle a moose!

Did people really enjoy Gears of War that much? I played it for an hour co-op on a friends console and it seemed like a bad game with good graphics.

The only way you could make better parents is to educate the next crop of children about raising children effectively.

Once people are the way they are you can either spend boatloads trying to address current issues or you can spent a much smaller amount working on future generations.

You make a compelling argument.

And, btw, multiplayer isn't fair anyway. Some people have better pings, faster computers, better sound, etc etc..

All of those things you mentioned cannot be controlled by developers, but field of view and aspect ratio can.

If you are a developer and design into your game a way for some of the players to have a distinct advantage over others in a player versus player setting, the people who do not benefit from this will be more likely to migrate to other games. It is not good business.

It is similar to having a lax stand on cheating.

If you give widescreen users a larger fov it gives them a tangible benefit in multiplayer, particularly in games where flanking an enemy is important.

Seems like a good first step to make sure your product doesn't leak potassium hydroxide onto your customers or give them lead poisoning might be to have them made anywhere other than china.

Just a thought.

There has been a small bug that has been a part of half-life since the early days and continues to rear its ugly head in recent releases.

When there is something on the ground that you could ostensibly walk on, occasionally you would get stuck on said item and would be rubber banded back a half step or so.

In half life one it would occur when you tried to step over a det pack.

I have noticed this happening in team fortress 2 with some doors. You would attempt to leave the doorway and be pulled back into the doorway. This has happened to me exiting the spawn while defending on gold rush stage 1 as well as on the offensive on gold rush stage 2.

Has anyone else noticed this? Granted, it is not a huge bug by any means but I am surprised that it is so persistent.

at least the black background sticks now. Used to shift back to blue for comments pages or after a short bit and you would have to retro colors it all over again.

Yahtzee definitely does not pull any punches when it comes to games. I really appreciate that quality in a reviewer.

I must admit he seems more a critic though. Either way, he comes up with some fantastically snarky stuff.

I can imagine quite a few developers wincing when hearing that their games are on the chopping block of Zero Punctuation.

Do you play team fortress arena dubfanatic? The scout seems really powerful in that gametype where engineers and hence sentry guns are much less common.

In push the cart type maps they get eaten alive by the omnipresent sentry guns in my experience.

'Scout will now move as fast as a heavy with his gun rotating, have 25% less health and double jump has been removed.'

7. Far Cry 2 review Oct 22, 2008, 10:12 rist3903
 
The worst thing this reviewer had to say about Far Cry 2 was that some of the supporting characters were slightly too bland.

Everything else is perfect according to him.

I do not trust reviews where nothing negative is said about the game.

Did they fix the pyro's flamethrower bug?

Occasionally when you get your burn on it looks like you are still shooting after you stop until you switch weapons.

Oh man that keyboard eavesdropping is right out of Neal Stephenson's book Cryptonomicon.

Great book, by the way!

I was quite psyched when I found out he was working for Valve myself. I look forward to seeing more of his twisted humor in their forthcoming games.

These interviews are not for you. They are not for me either, since they had me at co-op vs zombies.

Man oh man I cannot wait.
