If you think that jump scares are what makes games scary, you should play some scarier games.

Heck, even the Christian Bale ones are a hundred times more concrete than anything these days.

Re: Pinterest?

Unless people are reading your reviews for the screenshots, probably not. And it's a drop in the bucket next to Twitter and Facebook anyway.

Re: What-if scenario for Atari 2600 Pac-Man

It’s probably for the best that things went the way they did. Arcade games being “superior” to their console counterparts is a cool element to video game history. Remember the fun of seeing how “close” a console game came to the real/arcade version? If they had perfected it right out of the gate, a...

"...employing video clips with real actors."

Oh, I think we're being a little generous here.

Keep in mind that the standard price of a new game hasn'...

Re: 2019/7/14: Wii U: Rodea the Sky Soldier, Shovel Knight

Not so sure about that. Maybe the indie/phone scene had been flogging that style, but as a widely released console title it seemed refreshing at the time. That's what I'm saying. It's a blind spot on your part, not originality. It's also a mistake to differentiate Shovel Knight from the indie scene...

Re: 2019/7/14: Wii U: Rodea the Sky Soldier, Shovel Knight

Very strange angle on the Shovel Knight review. There was nothing "boldly original" about a pixelated retro platform game in 2015 at all. Indie games had been flogging that style to death ever since Cave Story in 2004 , and by 2015, even Capcom had gotten in on it with two NES-styled Mega ...
