  1. ? "Middle America" isn't even a thing. North America consists of three countries: Canada, USA and Mexico. Then you've got the Central American countries and South America.
  2. Correct, but I'm also not sure that 2PP is ready for the policing that it requires for there to be wiki-style content editing.
  3. Is this an overstatement? I haven't played it yet since I'm waiting for the price to drop (Telltale games usually go on sale after half a year or so) but from the reviews I've read, the game is "good ut not great". It is easily the best adventure game I have played in the last 5 or so years, and the second episode kicked things up a notch. Definitely one of the most emotional experiences I've had playing a game in a while. Telltale just gets a lot of reviewers downgrading their games a lot for things that are tropes of the adventure genre. If I read another review where someone complains about lack of replayability...
  4. The hand-drawn art and 3d model are only used as a trace. There is still a dude who dotted each sprite pixel by pixel. This is really obvious if you look at the full sprites. http://dustloop.com/forums/showthread.php?8287-BlazBlue-Continuum-Shift-Sprites I'm willing to believe this but it's still astonishingly stupid. Why can't they just use some kind of conversion process? And why would they dot the pixels in when they could just draw normally with a tablet in a pixel drawing program? It isn't astonishingly stupid if that's the art style they want to go for. Any kind of "conversion process" isn't likely to look like the real McCoy and will probably just like blurry, pixelated hand-drawn art rather than "pixel art." Is it the most efficient process? Maybe not. But it does yield some nice-looking pixel art.

  6. I find it interesting when people say that they are for something "if done well." I think this should kind of go without saying. "Yes, I like lasagna, provided the chef doesn't take a dump in it." Now, I do realize that there have been some adventure games with badly-written dialog trees. Considering the ones that have had the best dialog trees involved Tim Schafer in some way, though, I'm not worried.
  7. But it is that! DFA is being led by Tim, and The Cave is being led by Ron. Yes but obviously it's not an adventure game from a genre point of view. "An adventurous jump and run by Double Fine and Ron Gilbert" and no one would have an issue here. Have you played it yet? From what I've heard with the way puzzles are handled, it sounds a lot like an adventure game to me.
  8. Yeah, that's on my list of DRM to avoid now. =( Oh well, I'm sure I'll play it some day. All of DF's recent games use Steamworks. Don't really think them using it again would be much of a surprise.
  9. I agree. This type of thing is more suited to a multiple-question survey than a poll.
  10. Well, this video player doesn't use Flash. It's pure HTML5.
  11. No problems in IE9 on Windows 7. It seems to buffer quite a bit faster than Vimeo did with the first videos. Works great on my Windows Phone as well. Overall, this gets my thumbs-up.
  12. Not too long ago, I added a comment to a review about The Dig here. As you can read there, I think the puzzles aren’t difficult, but there are a few exceptions. I agree that it's a good game, I like it a lot. Well, you're right. They're not the hardest puzzles I've ever come across. But I can't think of a single LucasArts adventure game that had harder puzzles than it, and that's mostly what I'm comparing against. Also, that bone turtle thing took me forever and a half to get right.
  13. LOL... It's generally the same the world over. No one gives out credit without knowing that you have a job and can afford to pay that credit back. Except in America. They tell me they give hobos credit cards there Uh, not really. I was denied a credit card when I applied for one from my bank when I was 19 even though I was in college and had a decent job. And this was before the recent economic crap happened.
