For this week’s cast, I was joined by Bill Fisher of Quicksilver Software Interactive to talk about his time in the game industry, working at Intellivision, and what’s going on with bringing the system and its games to modern audiences.
Devil May Cry 5 is poised to join the “popular” list of AAA games that feature microtransactions that allow players to speed through the game. It was announced this week that Capcom will let players spend real money to acquire more in-game resources. Every time this comes up, developers will talk about wanting to give players freedom of choice, but this discussion always ends up looking badly on the game.
For this discussion, Rob and I talked about the news surrounding Telltale Game’s closure.
For today’s video, I talked about Random vs. Fixed pattern enemy design in video games.
