In Other News – August 30, 2011

2 min read


An interesting conversation popped up on Twitter today, which had a few of us discussing if any game genres or camera views put you off of a game. For example, would you avoid a game just because it was played in the first person view, or skip on a game raking in 10/10s just because you don’t like RPGs, or it’s a real-time strategy game?

In Other News: Why Skyrim looks so damn good on the Xbox 360, Steam and Origin go head to head, FireFly cosplay, Uncharted 3 footage and more.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were wondering what life would be like from a third person view. (No issues if we looked like ION header girls though amirite?)
