If it's The Binding of Isaac, it's quite a lot more than just another dark and scary cave adventure. This indie Steam release will make you feel so uncomfortable as you play it that you won't be able to stop. Like a Lynch film or a Burroughs novel, Isaac renders disgust as its own form of pleasure. It's deliriously addictive, dark, and subtle enough in the way it tells its story to rank among my favorite art games.
As fans of the Mass Effect series frothily anticipate the third installment's upcoming release, Electronic Arts plans to whet their space epic appetites even further--by actually launching the game into space.
Reported on Gamespot yesterday, Dice has recently creted a position in their studio that is wholly concerned with counter-cheater measures in both current and future titles. If you’ve recently picked up the Multiplayer game, you will notice that many players on XBLA use clipping to crawl beneath the actual level, use modded consoles or trigger switches to “lag out”. Cheating is even more prevalent in the PC version of the game (which is always the case). There’s nothing more frustrating than spawning with your team and immediately being killed by some douchebag spawn camping beneath the floor. Bullets pour out of a rock and you sit, staring at your screen, and watching the spawn counter tick down so it can happen all over again.
