  • Sequel to Afro Samurai announced

    … Indie publisher Versus Evil, perhaps best known for The Banner Saga, has announced a sequel to the 2009 Afro Samurai game. The original was met with a mixed response with most commentators saying that while the title looked great it was let down by fiddly mechanics.

  • Annoying game mechanics: dual worlds

    … Every game is unique, each with its own set of characters, stories and most importantly, game mechanics. But just as common elements in fiction have become tropes or clichés, game mechanics, after all these years, have become tropes themselves. There are good and bad mechanics, but most of the time we think of them as a whole, as a set…

    … years of playing video games, I’ve only come across a handful that manage to be mechanically stupendous. If its controls were as tight as Star Fox, and the game was more varied, it would probably be a real winner in my book.
