    As far as I know, R&C GC was the first game to play with traditional platformer mechanics in spherical levels a la Mario Galaxy. It always bugged me when reviewers claimed ACiT got them from Galaxy lol.

    "Luster" is another word for "shine" in the noun form. Never heard of "Lackluster" have you, you perverted idiot?

    Rogue was the first game to add randomly-generated rooms.

    Wasn't it also the first to do all the insanely hard stuff that defines the term "roguelike"?

    Rogue like doesn`t mean Hard stuff exacly, Rogue like reffers to "1 live only" rogue like game are the ones whit random generated maps and "save and quit" only so no "save as" and only "1 life" if you die, you save file is deleted

    I'm not convinced Doctor Hauzer is cel-shaded. I think those are just plain textures and when people talk about cel-shading in video games they tend to be referring to real-time calculation. For a start, the environment definitely doesn't employ the technique, and neither does the dude's hair or jacket, so why implement a whole new rendering method just for the main characters face? Secondly, cel-shading calculates and constantly updates each cel to provide a kind of fake real-time lighting effect, which isn't happening here. The shadows are completely symmetrical and don't change with movement. If you ask me Doctor Hauzer can have a point for using comic book style artwork, but there's really nothing special about the rendering... it's probably just the result of developers trying to save memory on textures wherever possible.

    That said, if we're going by that criteria then games such as Out of This World came first anyway. Doctor Hauzer really doesn't seem that special at all.

    No mention of Phantasy Star Online for Dreamcast as the father of modern console MMO, Halloween for Atari 2600 vcs as first game with an onscreen decapitation, Guitar Freaks by Konami for the plastic instrument band games, this list could have been more interesting.

    That's what I thought, too. This isn't cel-shading. This is just really basic texturing or very strategic space saving.

    Doesn't make it forgiveable.

    Quick Time Events(QTE) was Shenmue I believe
  • desolation0 - July 16, 2014 5:36 p.m.

    Shenmue was the first notable modern example, and likely the popularizer. The term Quick Time Event is (debateably) attributed to Yu Suzuki. The first use of Quick Time Events I have heard of though was the original Dragon's Lair in 80's arcades. Cliffhanger too. There may have been a few earlier examples, as well. Actually showing the proper button prompts on screen was added soon after, in other games to follow the style. It was common on laserdisc games since the systems really couldn't handle much programmable gameplay.

    Are you guys gonna review the FFX/X-2 Collection?
  • g1rldraco7 - March 10, 2014 4:47 p.m.

    Very interesting.
  • Lurkero - March 10, 2014 3:43 p.m.

    Winback or Kill.Switch always get mentioned in the 3rd person cover discussions I have heard.
  • Slickguy - March 10, 2014 1:56 p.m.

    Luster means shining. "Star luster" means the light that comes from stars.
