All it takes is one thing....
….one little thing to ruin what would otherwise be a splendid moment.
The new Star Wars teaser has me bouncing up and down in my chair with glee. I’ve watched it a dozen times and I cannot wait until I get the chance to see it on the big screen, but there is one teeny, tiny thing that just rubs me the wrong way. It’s a really stupid thing, too. Something that, when I tell you what it is, many are going to ask why it’s worth getting in a twist over.
That stupid lightsabre.
And it IS stupid. It’s a really, really bad weapon design and people are going to be taking the piss out of it for years to come, I’m sure.
Ever since Darth Maul showed up with his two-bladed sabre (I believe it was called “The Compensator”) a new sabre gimmick has been required with each further expansion of the mythology. We’ve had purple sabres, Ventress had her twin sabres, Grievous did his Cuisinart-thing, etc, etc.
The gimmick Star Wars VII seems to be employ

Why Borderlands Worked.
The original Borderlands is one of my favourite video games, so much so that it inspired me to return to writing futuristic science fiction science fiction, something which I hadn’t done since the 90s. It was a real breath of fresh air after the endless waves of grim, brown, cover-based-shooters and Call of Duty wannabes.
Having played through both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, I’m not entirely sure that either Gearbox or 2K really knew themselves why Borderlands worked, because both additional entries into the canon failed to grab me in the same way.
Here are the reasons why I thought Borderlands was great, and why it’s sequels weren’t.
1: The opening.
There are very few games that set the scene as perfectly as this. In just under 2 minutes, you know everything you need to: Going by that weird dog-thing, Pandora is an alien planet. The crusty looking billboard suggests it’s a frontier world which p

Avoid Ubisoft
A while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).
Ass Creed: Unity hit the headlines because of it doesn’t just play bad, it’s flat out broken.

I’ll repeat what I said in the journal with the Watchdogs prediction: look at the back catalogue of a studio before spending mo
