Playing from another perspective
There is a series of reasons by which desire to buy Mirror' s Edge before Gears of War 2. It is very simple, when you see a game you know you want that it to play by some raz├â ┬│ n and leave to a side the average of Metacritic, rese├â┬▒as of all the sites (the 0,1% of the editors look for just like your) or hype of other games.
- Because the concept of freedom, oppression and consumption based on Baudrillard hooks to me.
- Because direcci├â has one ┬│ n of impressive art. The handling of the color is of the best thing than I have seen in videojuego.
- Because it is a First Person Runner and not a First Person Shooter.
Yesterday platicaba with a partner of ÔÇťprestigiousÔÇŁ the Reality of videojuegos that, in opini├â ┬│ n of my Wire friend, seems m├âs one versi├â ┬│ n chafa of ÔÇťDancing by a Sue├â┬▒oÔÇŁ that something serious. The peculiar thing of this is that this person assumes that est├âworking ÔÇťto createÔÇŁ an industry of development of videojuegos in M├â┬ęxico but it does not have nor but it reputes idea of qu├â┬ę is needed (on desire it is not lived).
I only point a pair of things:
- If you are going ÔÇťto createÔÇŁ a development industry first inf├â ┬│ rmate of qu├â┬ę type of people is needed to develop a game. She remembers that different professions (dise├â┬▒adores, artists 2D, 3D, entertainers, programmers, producers, engineers of sound, testers, etc.) exist and each person has a series of responsibilities. ┬│ is ÔÇťno tod├â logoÔÇŁ and if you go away by that way then already you were worth, not est├âs raising nothing serious.
- The work is not moderate by ÔÇťest├ândaresÔÇŁ. Videojuego is not a hamburger, nor one raci├â ┬│ n of Popes that puts to the freidora ÔÇťnÔÇŁ amount of minutes. If you do not create preg├â┬║ntale to me to a producing house whichever cinem├â receives to you by ÔÇťfiveticas est├âto ndar of average minute andÔÇŁ. I already imagine the face of the person with whom you quote (and what pensar├ân of you).
And like advice: You do not speak than you do not know trying you dominate that it.
If you do not know of dise├â┬▒o of games: Google uses
If you do not know that it is Disruption: Google uses
If you do not know to use GoogleÔÇŽ pon a hamburger position.
├éAs├â dictates the rule? In all sides they speak of which the Mexicans we are huevones, ma├â┬▒osos and that we only tried to see the way to joder. The peculiar thing is that the previous thing comes from the mouth of the same Mexican since jam├âs - of less in the 9 a├â┬▒os that I take dealing with people about others pa├âses- I have listened to commentaries of this type, but quite the opposite.
Equally it seems that the same Mexican is loving to boycott the work of his conationals. He is ah├â where I ask ├éM├â┬ęxico est├âpreparation to have an industry of development of videojuegos? the sad answer is no. and it is not because the support of the government does not exist, or so that the projects are led by people who only see the form to express and to obtain m├âs resources. raz├â ┬│ n by which industry does not exist is by the mentality of 2├Ś2 of mayor├âa of countrymen.
ÔÇťAhhh if he is Mexican must be badÔÇŁ
ÔÇťYou do not suck with 100 varos m├âbetter s and I occur a Fifa, although he is viejitoÔÇŁ (speaking of Kicks Online)
ÔÇť├éTo qui├â┬ęn it interests a RPG to him of the AztecsÔÇŁ (speaking of Aztlan)
pr├â ┬│ xima time that uses a product Done in M├â┬ęxico t├â ┬│ pulls the annoyance to first prove it before throwing poop to him.
Edit: I am fan of Danny Trejo, nom├âs to say that it is mexi-DOG
These ├â┬║ltimos d├âas I have worked close by with my friend Carlos Gutierrez in the change of image to all the network of blogs that represents G33K ON. First in undergoing redise├â┬▒o it is The Wired Blog and for that I have been based on the subject Braincast de Storelicius and InfectedFX.
We begin a new stage in this network of blogs, integrated by people of many flavors: geeks, gamers, addict to cafe├âna, comics, to the Dr Pepper, pel├âculas Eastern of low budget or to the soccer but that all counts on a magn├âfico gift: the quality in its work. This it is first of many changes that come.
If they remember, a├â┬▒o past EA anunci├â ┬│ development of Tiberium, a FPS located in the universe of Command and Conquer which ser├âa developed by EA Los Angeles, the same study that has developed to games like Medal of Honor, LOTR BFME or m├âs recently C&C 3: Kane' s Wrath.
So it seems that to compa├â┬▒├âa him gust├â ┬│ like ven├âa not being developed, or quiz├âtoo many versions of the tax exemption and decidi├â exist├âan ┬│ to cancel this game being argued ÔÇťnot to have fulfilled est├ândares of quality of compa├â┬▒├âaÔÇŁ. Surely they did not want to risk to have another one cat├âstrofe like fu├â┬ę C&C: Renegade and left the study focused completely in Network Alert 3.
Another one hip├â ┬│ thesis is that the study podr├âa for being gliding to work in one of the projects that involve the director of 300, Zack Snyder.
In agreement with a Japanese source of MCV, Nintendo estar├âa to show to its new DS d├âa of ma├â┬▒ana. During the ├â┬║ltimas weeks ┬│ n was being rumored about this new ÔÇťactualizaci├âÔÇŁ that includes one c├âmara and functions multimedia as reproducci├â ┬│ n of MP3 nevertheless little we know of the specifications of new port├âtil.
The forced question is ├éin truth we needed another DS? I say, is clear to me that the DS podr├âa to fall in the heading of ÔÇťeverything-in-oneÔÇŁ (like the cellular ones) that to end of accounts no funci├â ┬│ n is operated to m├âximo. If they do not create to me they see specs of c├âmaras, I create better leaves to buy a Nikon D60 that a cellular one with half of megapixeles. The same happens with the part of audio ├éCu├ântos of you you use its PSP to listen to its m├â┬║sica.
The new safe console estar├âavailable for Christmas y S.A. ┬▒ade to gr├ân repertoire of packages and special editions that exist in the market.
In the ├â┬║ltimos a├â┬▒os the modifications of games like Half Life, Unreal Tournament or Battlefield have taken such force that some studies - as Splash Damage- has taken the definitive step to enter the development market. Compa├â┬▒├âas since Epic has seen the potential of this community and offers for a long time videotutoriales to dominate his tecnolog├âa, others as You go take to a├â┬▒os realizing the QuakeCon that, among other things, has served so that several equipment amateurs does networking with compa├â┬▒├âa.
Half Life is a case aside; Counter Strike is probably modificaci├â ┬│ n m├âpopular s of the ├â┬║ltimos a├â┬▒os and counts on one of the communities m├âs s├â ┬│ lidas of means. Lamentably their modifications are counted with the same promotion ÔÇťno fancyÔÇŁ that has the competition. A contest similar to ÔÇťMake Something UnrealÔÇŁ does not exist or at least documentaci├â decent ┬│ n to be made a pro of the Source Engine.
It is why Valve decidi├â ┬│ that as of today its platform of distribuci├â ┬│ n Steam comenzar├âintegraci├â ┬│ n of modifications of Half Life 2. ├â┬ëstas utilizar├ân the tools of Steamworks that allows to take a registry of the estad├âsticas and integrate like any game acquired from the store electr├â ┬│ nica. The modifications aparecer├ân in the window of ÔÇťMy GamesÔÇŁ and podr├ân to update of way autom├âtica like any other t├âtulo.
The first five mods that estar├ân available of Chivalry, D.I.P.R.I.P., Insurgency, Synergy, and Zombie Panic are Age; in the future it is planned to integrate m├âs projects. Valve said that ÔÇťit is a recognition to the arduous work that has done and hopes to see m├âs equipment of development involved in the future.ÔÇŁ In order to be able to play anyone of these modifications it is necessary to count on a copy leg├âtima of Half Life 2, in case of not having it can directly acquire it in Steam by $19.99.
If the world were white, gustar├âa to live it to me like in The Unfinished Swan. This game in first person, developed by Ian Dallas, has been chosen as finalist of the Sense Of Wonder Night and raises the existence in a completely white world where we must use painting spots to move to us and to interact with the objects.
The proposal is excelsa and right the type of games that gustar├âa to see me in markets like the PSN, XBLA or WiiWare. The ├â┬║nico that weighs to me sometimes is that this type of games implies that reinitiates in way WindowsÔÇŽ is no capacity for Mac
