For the budding game designer/developer/producer...
« on: September 20, 2013, 11:31:27 AM »

So if you havent watched any of this youtube series before, ExtraCredits is a show about the concepts of game design. Its an awesome youtube series and to be honest I couldnt give it NEARLY the credit it deserves just by typing out a summary here, so I wont...

Rather, I would prefer you go and watch one too see if its something you would find useful;

For example, how character imbalance can fuel a meta-game preventing stagnancy in a multiplayer environment. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbnlKb8kA70)

Truely excelent source material for game development ideas and useful ways to avoid common pitfalls.
Anyhow, here is an easy way to find their videos since they are a smaller series partt of Penny Arcade.

Yea that was because Creative Assembly threw money at them to make videos about history relating to Rome Total War 2. Thats good stuff too, but kinda way off topic of their normal videos.

I'm not sure if this is technically necromancy here...?

I don't know if this is interesting to see here... but the ExtraCredits historical stuff like Genghis khan's earliest days and other old history facts are still interesting to see...

It's still technically necromancy, even with mech serum on a old topic what was made in 2013 and then reviving it 6 year later...

Besides this topic ain't interesting here... It was posted by Ataraxist and Yarkista who is a guest and Ataraxist's last post was in September 2013...

So this topic would later fall in deep asleep again, and it's is life cycle for it's 1795 views compared to the other posts...

No interest bringing back this topic back up...
