If you don't think the camera will bother you then a better reason to not play the game seems to be the negative reviews from websites and importers. Weird that so many series that were getting it right in the 90s or early 2000s seem to have embraced so many of the worst cliches that anime and sometimes western roleplaying games have to offer. Battlefield 4 to get new, more multiplayer-friendly UI Gwent has a cool idea to combat card pack RNG Shovel Knight dev asks, 'What game should we make next?'

Saw a lot of fake pictures for Fire Emblem when that came out, some that were specifically made as jokes that were then shared by people complaining about the localization, funny to see but also embarrassing when believed or shared as true and usually leads to or adds to the harassment of people.

KOLOGEON, THE NEW ROGUELIKE-LIKE-LIKE FOR YOU TO MARVEL AT Other content I found interesting this week As war of words between indie dev and reseller intensifies, IGDA distances itself G2A Announces Game Developer Support System Worldwide In the shadow of E3, this other festival gathers to discuss the impact of gaming Civilization is heading to the classroom with new educational edition Life Is Strange leads this year's Games For Change award winners FROM DRAGON AGE TO GAMES THAT FOSTER BEHAVIORAL CHANGE It’s Not Easy Putting A Gay Sex Game On Steam The ballistic politics of Hideo Kojima CRPG History Abridged IV: A few niche RPGs that brought something new to the table Mighty No. 9’s Designer Says ‘I Own All The Problems That Came With This Game' Kickstarter has turned us all into crappy publishers STOP CALLING EASTERN EUROPEAN VIDEOGAMES PESSIMISTIC The Secretive Creator Of Yandere Simulator, A Game About Murdering High School Girls Happy 20th Birthday, Quake Failbetter Games: Seven Years, Ten Lessons Nintendo insists that Paper Mario: Color Splash joke wasn’t about Gamergate This is amusing to me due to an article I saw last week while looking for news, a website that caught on around the beginning of GG and that is said to be a trustworthy site by them first wrote about this a week before someone sent the above two images to Zoe, the site creator talked about how the reference clearly was about GG and went on to describe how he believed that the in game events going on around the time of the screenshots were also all a reference to it. Now that Nintendo has called them a hate group people seem to have taken to saying that she is stupid for not assuming it was a reference to a combination of Watergate/Mario Party and that she just wanted attention, by that logic the guy in charge of one of the websites they trust is also stupid (worse actually, since he knew the entire context, had no reason for an emotional response, and went on to talk about how the whole in game situation was a reference not just those two lines) or that he intentionally created controversy where there was none in order to write a clickbait article for attention which could easily have been what she was sent the pictures from in the first place. But that was last week, only the people who thought that this week are idiots that wanted attention apparently.

Guns, games and violence: The real questions you should be asking Good to bring up with how Call of Duty developers work with the military, how military movies and games advertise for the military, people looking to hire gamers to operate drones, or just based on how many people I've known or heard of who wanted to join the military because Call of Duty/Metal Gear was fun (not really sure how Metal Gear makes you want to join the military, you would think it would make you want to do the opposite, but most people have never really been good at understanding story or narrative themes in games). DOOM 2016: Action vs. Traction Cyberpunk Bartending Game Mixes Waifus With Great Storytelling Lot of people I know have been saying positive things about this game and I've been looking forward to it.
