    Warhawk? Starhawk?

    June 26, 2014 by Diestref

    I remember when Warhawk first came out in 2007. It was a widely popular game (as least that is what I remember.) I was wondering for those that have played Warhawk and Starhawk, which one do you like more? Do you like both of them? 


    I was wondering because I want to get Starhawk, but it seems overily complicated due to the new addition of building bases,and I worried that would ruin the otherwise fun game. I think it looks cool. However, I don't want have to worry about building when also worrying about completing the objective.

    As previously mentioned, there is a large percentage of content on this Wiki that has either been imported or copied from Wikipedia. I wanted to plant a run down here of what should be the plan going forward.


    In short, templates are a mess, a by-product of the mass importing of articles. There are also several that, while originally created here, can be improved; this is especially in reference to series templates.

    Stub templates are another area; should time be spent improving the existing all-purpose one at Template:Stub, or does the community really want specific stubs for game series'?

    The back-end needs seeing to, specifically, anything that deals with country flags, citations. Updated templates will also be created for Hardware, Charact…

    Hello!

    Been a while since I've created a blog post, but we've all been busy here sifting through the content here, and converting what we have to use the new Infobox system, and creating new content while doing so.

    We have been carrying out a de facto content audit while this has been progressing, and we here at Encyclopedia Gaming are deeply troubled by past editing practices. Most notably, a large percentage of articles have been outright copied from Wikipedia, without attribution, with a single revision only rather than the full history, and without the work required to properly integrate them into the site.

    This has led to large swathes of our content base looking like a really inferior mirror of Wikipedia. We are currently assessing what d…

    Hello!

    We are relaunching the Encyclopedia Gamia Wiki, along with several enhancements, core code changes, and hopefully, a new direction both for user content, and for the Wiki itself. First, the changes!


    The forum has been relaunched, and is now running on Wikia's original Forum code. New forums have been added, and if there is call in the future, sub-forums can be added for specific topics or franchises. The Chat is also up and running.


    As a way of marking our relaunch, we are having one massive play-off between gaming's biggest and baddest franchises. There will be sixteen 1 vs. 1 battles, after which, each winner will be paired against the one next to it. Week 1 will compete against Week 2, and so on. This will continue until we have The O…

    We attended two pannels about Blizzard's hit collectible card game (CCG) Hearthstone at GDC 2014, and got to see some of Blizzard's finest share some of their design secrets.

    The first talk, Ben Thompson's The Art of Hearthstone: Playing the Cards you're Dealt, focused primarily on the game's art design, which Ben was responsible for. The team had four main values for Hearthstone during its creation:

    • Create the sensation that the cards are a valuable collectible
    • Keep the design simple and clean
    • Make sure the cards feel real and physical
    • Keep the charming and whimsical feel of other Warcraft games



    One of the main problems the team encountered was that a digital CCG lacks the physical sensation one gets from playing a traditional card game. The fee…

    Klei Entertainment Devloper Kevin Forbes recently gave a talk about indie hit Don’t Starve, detailing the game’s roots as a free to play prototype, and the huge impact the community had on bringing it to fruition.

    The concept for Don’t Starve actually stemmed from a game jam where a 16 bit Link asset from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was surrounded by an increasing number of pigmen that did damage to you. It took 2 days to make, and had the same nighttime proximity lighting effects and isometric view as Don’t Starve would, but that was pretty much it. A simple start to be sure, but it served as the ground work for an experimental Free to Play(F2P) game that Klei was interested in pursuing.

    The original game prototype was called the …

    Bungie's exciting new sci-fi first-person shooter, Destiny, will have a heavy focus on player customization. The customization system is highly ambitious and unlike anything seen in a first-person shooter thus far. Scott Shepherd, 3D Technical Art Lead, shed some light on the tools and process Bungie built to create a large variety of high-quality character content. The customization system truly makes the most out of the world art created and allows for continued growth and expandability over the lifetime of the Destiny franchise.


    Hunters: The hunters are the frontier scouts. They carry themselves with style, and their look reflects a mixing and matching vibe. The class is dressed in heavy cloaks and various types of masks. They wear lightw…
