seems I'm not really into this blogging thingy at Gamespot.
Gamespot seriously has to improve the way they design and engineer user-interfaces for their members. I mean come on, its so conflated, messy and did I mention messy? Its really all over the place, gamespot seriously has to revamp its user profile interface, if not this will be my last 'blog' post ever.
my last post had a 2 year gap in between... so this will be eternal.
Cheers (and good riddance?)
Apparently, my state of existential condition supercedes that of any form of technologically deterministic biographical narrative. Put simply, I am not exactly thrilled about my state of self after playing games such as Deus Ex which plays around with all-things technologically advanced that gives impressions of surrealism of impossibilities.
Well, the game immerses me in a sorta like, techno-capitalistic world, where human limbs are easily replaced with far superior mechanical contraptions, and the action is almost like the Fallout series. However, a few hours into the game, somehow depreciated my interest in it, as the gold-black dominant colors often constrain my vision into what Dunhill envisioned their masculine jewellery with.
Overall, it was kinda fun, but honestly, the replayability of the game, pales in comparison with other RPG games such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, or even Baldurs Gate (yay!).
Oh wells, I like staring at analog watches anyways..
I just pre-ordered my copy of Anno 1404: Dawn of Discovery. It had a quick installation procedure, but as soon as the game loaded, I noticed that there was no multiplayer. Yeap, you heard me. Regardless, I ran the game at 1920x1200 resolution with graphics setting on 'superior'. I felt the game's graphics was captivating, along with a complimentary musical score that subtlely accomodates itself with the gameplay changes. Also, the game was very meticulous with a sort of a "micro-management" style interface that involved trading over the ocean among several islands one of its most fundamental aspect. For me, I find that interesting but the learning curve takes a while to settle in. The campaign was good - though I only played 2 prior to writing this - and the interface is customizable to a degree where the player could choose his/her own shortcuts on the action bar. I think that this is important as games should give customizability options to the player instead of forcing the player to adapt to the game's interface. Notifications and quest log is neatly kept at the sides via small icons and the gameplay camera is immersive.
Overall I think its a good game amidst the other RPG/Action games I have, and it gives a good break from the hustle & bustle of spontaneous FPS modes.
