Reddaye commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

There's a whole lot of denial going on in this thread. I love my 3DS as much as the next person, but anyone who doesn't think that Mobile and Tablet gaming is going to just keep eating up the market is fooling themselves. Every day more and more of these devices make their way into people's hands. All types of people young and old carry a smartphone, and love to kill time with a quick game of Angry Birds, or even a round of something like Warhammer Quest.

These games are usually easy to pick up and put back down, which makes them perfect for gaming on the go. Also, despite what people seem to think there's a lot of games on Mobile with a lot of depth, and an entire new generation that are learning to play them with touch screens.

For those of us who have grown up before the rise of the smart device; we prefer buttons. Young people now will be growing up with an entirely new way of controlling their games — touch, and motion. Things are going to be very different in the field of portable gaming in the next ten years. There's no use denying it unfortunately.



Reddaye commented on Review: Shovel Knight (Wii U eShop):

This can't get onto the eShop fast enough! I've yet to buy an eShop release on day one, but Shovel Knight is just the game to make me break that trend.



Reddaye commented on Video: Check Out These Etrian Odyssey: Milleni...:

I was a little hesitant about an Etrian Odyssey that doesn't let you create your own party, but this game looks fantastic. The cutscenes are gorgeous, and the party members all look good.

This might be a good way to expand EO's audience. Hopefully they'll continue doing this more story driven style as a spin off.

EDIT: Upon further inspection I found out you can play this in CLASSIC mode; which basically let's you play it like a traditional Wizardry style blobber. AWESOME.



Reddaye commented on Talking Point: Warren Spector Asks, Where Are ...:


Being the designer of some of the gaming industries most critically acclaimed and beloved games makes you a ham head? Interesting.

I agree with Warren for the most part. I think there's a place in gaming for a more emotionally involving and less action oriented titles. A game like Ico springs to mind instantly as a game that narrows that gap. Theres room for growth, and theres a place for this kind of thing.

I think people who are assuming he thinks every game being released needs to fit this description are being a bit narrow minded. Its mainly an expression of the fact that theres a place in gaming for this kind of experience if developers were willing to nurture it and help it grow more.



Reddaye commented on Talking Point: The Unreal Engine 4 Gaffe Expos...:

It's certainly important for third parties to have access to a popular engine like Unreal Tech in order for the Wii U to be successful. Here's hoping it scales well enough for developers to want to use it on the U.

Mark Rein has a big mouth though. Always has.
