Anthem isn't beyond redemption. At least, I don't believe that it is. Of course, I wouldn't blame you for thinking or feeling otherwise. We are now six weeks out from the launch of Anthem, and its abundant issues have been well documented and catalogued. They range from incidental, to game breaking, to genuinely baffling. To be honest, to recount each and every one of them here for you today would be an exhausting exercise. BioWare has firmly stated that it is dedicated to improving the current experience and realising the long-term potential of Anthem – a future for the game that it had envisioned so many years ago. At this rate, however, a problem that the studio is going to face will be a direct result of the perception that players are forming of the game right now. While I believe that Anthem can be saved, I worry that some players might lose sight of why it ought to be. Sometimes, it's hard to see the forest for the trees. Given how complex and creatively … [Read more...] about Six weeks on from launch, Anthem isn’t beyond redemption

Even with Netflix’s recommendation algorithm steadily serving you new movies, new TV shows, and original programming tailored to your binging habits, the streaming service’s firehose of content makes what’s coming and going difficult to parse.

Over the past 20 years, Tetsuya Mizuguchi has seen his development studios shrink at a dramatic rate. When he started a team for Sega in the ’90s, United Game Artists, he oversaw around 100 people. When he left a few years later to form an independent studio, Q Entertainment, that number dropped to around 17. With his current setup, the number has sunk as far as it can go: Mizuguchi is the only full-time employee. His story isn’t a fall from grace, though. His latest game, musical shooter Rez Infinite, was one of the top-rated early VR titles, made money and won multiple awards. And the team that worked on it wasn’t as small as the numbers suggest — most just weren’t full-time. Mizuguchi is part of a growing group of game developers experimenting with a different way of working, a sort of extreme version of outsourcing. He runs what some call a “concept team,” a small, independent group that generates game ideas and designs, and then partners … [Read more...] about Directing from the sidelines
Seagate has announced the next of its special edition game drives, this one themed around Rare's upcoming Xbox One and PC pirate game Sea of Thieves. The 2 TB drive is pretty cool-looking, featuring the "Reaper's Mark" logo on the purple case.It also comes with in-game content in the form of the weapon The Midnight Blunderbuss, which I am also calling dibs on now for my sludge-rock band that I want to form. Additionally, it includes a one-month Xbox Game Pass membership. That's notable because, with that membership, you'll be able to get Sea of Thieves at launch on March 20 at no extra cost because first-party Xbox games are now launching into Game Pass right away. However, you must keep your subscription active or buy the game outright to continue playing after the first month.Seagate says the drive's USB 3.0 speed means you won't notice any slowdown for games playing off the drive compared to the Xbox One's internal hard drive. The $90 Sea of Thieves drive launches on March 20 … [Read more...] about This 2 TB Sea Of Thieves Game Drive Comes With In-Game Content And A Game Pass Membership
