When a Game’s a Game (Not a Film)

What basic elements of interactivity create something that just can’t be chopped up and placed into another medium? Ironically, the game that made me start thinking of this was Telling Lies. On the surface, it’s about as filmic as you can get. You scrub through actual video, clicking words in the subtitles to find…

2022 In Review: The Last Year of Covid?

Xbox Price Rise is an Understandable Disappointment

blank Xbox games will increase from $60 to $70 starting next year, and that’s a massive disappointment. Any price rise is understandable, but still disappointing. They’re not the first to do it.

The price rise will hit those unwilling to subscribe but still interested in playing the hardest. During a cost…
