Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
How do you know where the line is between a game being too difficult, which spoils the overall effect, or you just being crap at it?
Discussion on some forum I go on about Mass Effect leads to discussion about the nature of videogames as art. In a bizarre example of misjudgement, I thought some may be interested in what I had to say, so it's below.
This is in response to a suggestion that the truly great and important games fall into "an entire subgenre of entertainment of their own, richer than any Mario (no matter how good) will ever be."
I'd be interested to see what people's opinions are on the matter.
I have just this minute finished Mass Effect on the PC. The universe is safe - for now...
A French HL2 site gives us some coverage. Which is very nice of them.
My French is a little ropey these days, so I had to run it through a translator to see what they were saying about us. I really hope this is close to the intended result, as it's magnificent:
Let's add a mod in the list of mods of the site, ie more precisely 'Neptune'. You will say, 'but what is' Neptune', is not it?
In short, Neptune is a mod for Half-Life 2 mixed with desire and sexuality... but you will not have thought it?
Seriously, Neptune is a single player mod for Half-Life 2 incorporating the ideas of world games like System Shock 2, Bioshock, Thief: Deadly Shadows and Silent Hill.
Elsewhere, this wonderful band, who I've just realised I've not plugged for ages. Inscape (see the Trackspeed player, not the Myspace one) is one of my favourite pieces of music in the world.
I'll have something worthwhile to say in the near future, I promise.
