quiet

One of the many hallmarks of the Metal Gear Solid franchise has been its colorful cast of female characters, specifically the ones that push the sexual envelope, and quite vigorously. Though Quiet, the mute sniper that will grace "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain," has gotten a greater amount of flack than usual.

Even our own Charles Webb took issue with her character design, noting that: "In the context of a game that blends child soldiers and PTSD, this feels like a misstep, overtly sexualizing the one named female character that's been shown in the game up to this point, and further objectifying her by making her mute."

Diablo III

Porting any game from the PC to a console is a one of the enduring challenges of the video game industry. However, when a series like "Diablo," which is so tied to PC gaming culture, makes the jump from mouse and keyboard to the controller it's is an even bigger task. "Diablo III," the latest incarnation in the franchise that helped to define dungeon crawlers, is making its first appearances on consoles, by gracing the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (and eventually the PlayStation 4). In the past, "Diablo" has been less than successful at making an easy transition to consoles (the last attempt was 1998's so-so PlayStation port), so its reasonable that fans of the series may be weary of Blizzard's latest attempt. However, it seems like the team that worked the "Diablo III" port learned from the mistakes of others, and created a really enjoyable, controller-based version of the game.

However lukewarm the reception was for Capcom's 'Remember Me', the majority of the reviewers agreed on one positive point about the game: its soundtrack was remarkable. Its composer, Olivier Deriviere adeptly uses various musical styles and consciously toys with familiar orchestral textures with positive results. As a cohesive soundtrack release, 'Remember Me's' compiled music conjures images of an unmade Philip K. Dick film.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

Google Wave wasn't a huge success. In fact, one might call it a sizable misstep for one of the world's biggest the tech companies, especially one that has a track record for setting industry standards. But, for whatever reason, it tanked. So, what does Google Wave have to do with Mickey Mouse and his Castle of Illusion? Well, during the announcement for the fateful messaging system, its development team noted that they set out to (and I'm paraphrasing here) approach email as if it were invented today. Technological leaps forward aside, it's an interesting way to approach a product that people are familiar with in order to move the marker forward. It's that type of thinking that was clearly behind Sega Studios Australia's re-imagining of the 13 year-old Genesis classic, "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse," but fortunately their software is much more appealing.
