This is hilarious.

Musings on Beyond: Two Souls

Alright, so we checked out the demo for Beyond, and I can’t see why anyone would buy that game after playing the demo. It was a lot of quicktime events connected to each other, and everything felt forced.

I couldn’t just hit a button to do an action, I had to wiggle my stick around or lift the controller into the air. I don’t have any problems with the lack of gameplay, rather, I think they tried to stick in too much. I love adventure games, and the thought of something being more like an interactive movie than a game is interesting to me. What they did was try too hard to make the player do things, when they didn’t really have too.

They could have just let me make a few decisions, walk around, and control the dialog and I think it would have been a fun thing to play, but instead I felt like I was playing Simon Says with a drunken Simon, who just got done smoking some crack. I was jerked around, and I never really felt like I was in control. Beyond just feels contrived, and everything is just in there to make the player do stupid things so we don’t get bored. I’m not a child, I can watch something happen and be engaged with it.

Here is my latest, and what I think will be my final, audio recording test. I’m hoping to start recording and producing a couple of interesting podcast pilots by the end of the month, so stay tuned for more info.

Tell me how the audio quality sounds to you, and if you would listen to a podcast that sounded like this. Any feedback would be awesome, thanks!
