Blimey! ..and an XBLA update

27 Jun / by: M&R / 4 comments /

Some Eurogamer readers have apparently taken our whimsical trip down silly lane a bit too seriously.. We were only “taking the piss“! (I think that’s how you say it..) [added: XBLA update for Will] In other N+ news, the XBLA version is coming along great — we’ve been playing the alpha version for about a […]

Eurogamer Strikes Out

22 Jun / by: M&R / 26 comments /

A few weeks ago, posted this article concerning N+. Unfortunately it contained not one, not two, but three factual errors. Actually, it’s more like 3.5.. but that would ruin the baseball metaphor so we’ll round down. Just to clear things up: The ninja’s name IS NOT “N”! The article refers to “a ninja called […]

Robotology: the story thus far, part the third.

14 Jun / by: M&R / 15 comments /

Time’s starting to get tight around here due to a bunch of N+ related deadlines.. however we’re going to do our best to keep this delicious blog from getting too stale. Let’s just backtrack a bit. This was almost exactly a year ago: we made all sorts of soft-collision/simple physics experiments (as mentioned previously) we […]

Casual Lames

03 Jun / by: M&R / 21 comments /

Let’s face it: casual games are demeaning to the entire game development community. In other media, “casual” products are more commonly referred to as “trash” — you have your trashy romance novels, your lip-synching boy bands, your cheesy reality tv and your god-awful Uwe Boll flicks. In other words, material that’s been cynically engineered with […]

Robotology: the story thus far, part deux

01 Jun / by: M&R / 18 comments /

One caveat on the following: it all seems to be written in the past tense, but this shouldn’t be mistaken as an indication that things have changed in the present! Past tense just seems more suitable for telling a tale that’s over a year old. Once again, apologies for not starting this blogging process sooner! […]
