Re: Please Rate this Article: Examining Choice in Dragon Age: Origins

A super rigorous analysis of choice in Dragon Age. I liked this a lot. While I think your guidelines are a bit specific, I understand that they apply to massive games as opposed to smaller games less...

Re: please rate this review: Uncharted 2

ok so I changed up the references (figure keeping some was necessary again to reinforce my point, but I didn't make them so aleatory) and cleaned up the last paragraph.

I hope though that by...

Re: please rate this review: Uncharted 2

Question:

Would taking out the ridiculous references strengthen the review? I know they're ridiculous, and I would argue that they serve an ironic purpose, but I totally understand the absurdity,...

Re: Demon's Souls

Demon's Souls kicks my ass, and I love every minute of it.

Rarely do I enter unknown areas in a video game with such tense excitement.

Been playing a while and have not progressed that far,...

Re: please rate this review: Uncharted 2

Completely valid, and no real counter argument save that I don't want video games to be foreign to critical analysis via the theory of someone like Derrida for example. I want to bridge the...

Re: PLEASE RATE THIS REVIEW: Demon's Souls

I don't really consider Demon's Souls an RPG. Just a straight up dungeon crawler.

And while I've only played about 20 hours and barely scratched the surface (I'm not the greatest gamer by any...

Re: please rate this review: Uncharted 2

I like your review. It's thorough and tight. You definitely explicate everything U2 does right and well.

please rate this review: Uncharted 2

Can a video game be a B-Movie?
And does this present any problems?

Re: Why is Uncharted so critically acclaimed and popular?

edit-the story of U1 is engagingly silly, but mostly due to the quality voice acting. Whereas U2 really takes advantage of its self reflexive, paradoxical dialogue, U1 didnt really embrace that, and...

Re: Why is Uncharted so critically acclaimed and popular?

Agreed, U1 was meh. Except for the voice acting/story.

Re: Top 10 Movies Of 2007

Delusions of grandeur...probably, but like I said I'm blind to criticism of Allen...I enjoy even his "terrible" films...it's like that with Godard too. There's something to enjoy in all of them.

I've started reading the Popul Vuh. I'm in Advanced Video Production this semester and haven't really been struck by any ideas. Thought Mayan mythology/science might help fuel the engines.
