    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.

    Behind the critical success of BioShock Infinite is the game's heart and soul, Elizabeth. Not only did Elizabeth carry the narrative weight of BioShock Infinite on her shoulders, she was also a robust AI that allowed for many systemic interactions. The creation of Elizabeth was an organic process that evolved over time and included members from every department at Irrational. Shawn Robertson, Animation Director of Irrational Games, broke down the complex nature of bringing Elizabeth to life, from an AI perspective as well as an animating perspective.


    The BioShock series had little player-to-human reactions throughout the first two games. All major character interactions in the first game occurred through radio sequences or heavily scripted …

    Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time was a serious undertaking for PopCap Games. The original Plants vs. Zombies created a large following, and a true sequel had to do much more than recreate the magic from the first game. Mark Bennett, an artist for PopCap, revealed the creative, crazy, and oftentimes unholy processes endured in the making of Plants vs. Zombies 2. From humble beginnings on a farm, to a road trip across the nation, and finally a journey through time.


    Many of the members of PopCap games who created the first Plants vs. Zombies were interested in moving on to new projects. A newer and less experienced team was brought in to create a new concept for a game. The mission was to reinvent the classic: to make a sequel that could l…

    League of Legends is a hardcore competitive multiplayer game, but it also has a rich back story and 118 unique characters, all with their own lore. How does Riot Games manage to walk the fine line between fierce competition and enriching narrative? At a recent GDC talk, Christina Norman, Game Designer and Writer for Riot, revealed various lessons and techniques about embedding a strong narrative into multiplayer competitive games.


    Before establishing her techniques and tips, Norman made sure to clarify two common misconceptions: story does not have to disrupt gameplay, and players will care about stories if you tell the rights ones. To achieve this goal, writers must follow four ground rules:

    • Story should never be irritating. Players need to …

    Chances are, that if you’re a gamer of a certain age, you’ve heard of Shenmue. Yu Suzuki’s 2000 Dreamcast game was considered a watershed moment on one of the most critically beloved systems of all time. It redefined the action RPG and what gamers could expect from a game’s world, story, and characters.

    A sweeping, dramatic tale of revenge that also simulated what would be considered at the time very mundane aspects of real life, Shenmue was a cornerstone for all future sandbox games, inspiring the Yakuza series, the GTA series, and many others. It was one of the first games to create a living, breathing city that felt like you were a part of it, and the little touches were revolutionary for their time. Ever-changing weather effects, NPCs t…

    The history and development behind Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV, and subsequently Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, was detailed at length by Naoki Yoshida at Game Developer's Conference 2014. Final Fantasy XIV, when released in September 2010, was considered a critical and commercial flop. Square Enix did not abandon the project, and instead hired Yoshida to take the helm to retool and rework the game. This was rare for an MMO to completely retool and relaunch itself, and Yoshida discussed the reasons behind the failure of FFXIV and the alterations and approaches his team followed to mold A Realm Reborn out of its ashes.


    Final Fantasy XIV suffered from a wide variety of issues, including unstable servers (with upwards of 400 of crashes a…

    Rosie Rappaport, lead designer on the EverQuest Next team, told convention attendees about how her team looked to Lego bricks for inspiration when building the prototype for EverQuest Next: Landmark while comprehensively detailing the process that brought about the standalone level editor. Landmark started out as merely a tool for the development team but proved so fun that they made it into a game. Sony Online Entertainment tasked the team with building something that was, like the original EverQuest before it, Revolutionary, as opposed to Evolutionary. Because the market is inundated with MMOs, they wanted the team to develop something that truly blew people away. They decided it was a good idea to build a revolutionary prototype to do …

    Animal Crossing: New Leaf has been a major success in the Animal Crossing franchise. At Game Developer's Conference 2014, Katsuya Eguchi, producer and manager of Software Development Group 2 at Nintendo EAD and Aya Kyogoku, the director of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, spoke at length about the history of Animal Crossing and their approaches to bringing the franchise to the 3DS.

    The New Leaf development team had many challenges, including how to improve upon a set game formula and how to eliminate the creeping 'series fatigue' in the minds of players.


    Aya Kyogoku, the director of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, provided insight into the team's development process. The talk began as a postmortem of Animal Crossing: City Folk. City Folk was released o…

    If you were to ask most gamers what their favorite aspect of Bioshock Infinite was, it would almost certainly be the characters and the story. Narrow that question down to their favorite character, and it’s virtually always going to be Elizabeth. She’s emotive, funny, and a great counterpoint to the stern, harsh, and somewhat unsympathetic player character, Booker DeWitt. But getting her there took a huge amount of effort, and it’s not just her dialogue and visual design that did it; the AI played a huge role as well.

    John Abercrombie, Lead Programmer at the now sadly defunct Irrational Games, gave a talk at GDC 2014 about designing her AI to make her not only seem more lifelike, but also how to do so without her interrupting the gameplay. …

    There’s a reason Bioware is recognized as one of the strongest presences in the world of video game narrative, writing, and dialogue, and unsurprisingly it’s because they value the text just as much as they do the polygons, textures, and other technical aspects. Sheri Graner Ray, CEO of Zombie Cat Games, and Jennifer Brandes Hepler, whose writing credits include Dragon Age Origins, Dragon Age 2, and Shadowrun, spoke at GDC 2014. They broke down some general guidelines for writing dialogue in games, specifically Bioware-style games and MMOs, and had some very useful tips for games writers and anyone else interested in the process of writing compelling dialogue for characters.

    As you may have guessed, dialogue trees have what they referred to…

    Rogue Legacy, the surprise 2013 hit that softened the brutal punishment of traditional roguelikes, managed to reach completion with a relatively tiny budget of just $14,878. Teddy and Kenny Lee, brothers and lead designers on the game, were accustomed to small, cheap game production. All their previous games, including the genius Don't Shit Your Pants, cost a mere $1,000 per game.

    To maintain such tight pockets the tiny development team built Rogue Legacy like a DIY soapbox car, building only the tools and features they absolutely needed. While, say, their level editor will not prove useful for their next game, the individualized builder let them create and playtest puzzle rooms in as little as fifteen minutes. They also applied the benefit…

    ChaIR lead animator Scott Stoddard gave a talk on the first day of GDC2014 detailing various aspects of Infinity Blade's design that helped make it such a successful property. He touched on three key elements: core combat, metagame, and analytics.

    Stoddard pointed to the game's focus on having players use simple actions -- swipes of the finger -- to elicit dramatic feedback in the game. Substantial effort was paid to making things feel dynamic, malleable, and fun. "Good gameplay happens when you balance interesting play abilities with interesting play challenges," Stoddard said, pointing to the game's parry system. That said, the team needed to design a simple, but deep metagame overlay to give the game's many interesting abilities meaning. …

    Now if the name doesn't irritated some people I don't understand what will but a short while ago Matthew Vaughn, the director powering "Strike-Butt" and so the the exact same man that is directing Superb Hero film "By-People: First, class" has stated that he believes the current swash of Super Hero based movies will be coming to an end soon. He allows his top reasons such as the calibre of many of these movies and also he believes that viewers will develop sick and tired with just one particular Excellent Hero flick as soon as one particular. But it must be said that you will discover a form of an irony here for males who may be directing a Super Hero blockbuster movie in the future out and express that fundamentally the finish is nigh.But…

    Greetings Encyclopedia Gamia!


    Matt, Jorge, and myself will be streaming Nidhogg and Samurai Gunn today, (January 17th, 2014) at 3:00PM PST on Wikia's Ustream channel! If you're not familiar with these games, they're both super fast, competitive, player versus player experiences, so expect to see one of us Hulk out and throw our controller at the monitor. Nidhogg is a 1v1 side scroller where two players attempt to kill their opponent while making it to their goal at the opposite side of the screen. It's really fun. Samurai Gunn is kind of an 8-bit Super Smash Bros where up to 4 players wall jump around a level waiting for the opportunity to slash or shoot one another. It's also really fun.

    November 22, 2013 by Matt Hadick

    What would you like to get out of the ensuing generation of video game consoles? What do you expect to see from the likes of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo? The generation is just getting started and we've got plenty of questions. Our gaming staff, alongside admins from a few of our most popular communities, are looking towards the to the horizon for answers.



    Until now, the big push on games has been graphics. Each generation has promised more colors, more sprites, more polygons, and more of it all at the same time.

    But this is an area where there is a natural cap. The human eye can only take in so much at a time -- iPads and iPhones already have screens at a resolution that is almost identical to the eye. Eyes can only see so many colors. Whi…

    Reflections

    Believe it or not, it's been eight years since Microsoft kicked off the previous generation of video games by releasing the Xbox 360 and it's safe to say that we've come a very long way. The last generation provided gamers with a variety of exciting new franchises, from Bioshock to Assassin's Creed, as well as a slew of new ways to play, from Nintendo's popularization of motion controls to Microsoft's groundbreaking Kinect. We all have our fair share of memories related to this last generation, so we thought we'd take some time to reflect and relate them to you. We also asked admins from some of our most active communities to let us know what this last generation meant to them and their fandom.
