**This took me forever, so if you steal this I will not be happy

anonymous asked:

Dear GameDev, thank you for this blog. Really love it and learn a lot. Story: 2K showed "gameplay" trailer in 2010 and 2011 about Bioshock Infinite which showed a really different game. It had a darker atmosphere and more open space. The fights were more dynamic. Questions: Did we really see gameplay there? If not, why did they say it is? Why do you think it changed so much? Story changes, money or publisher instructions? Best regards Ratkes

I rewatched the gameplay videos from [2010] and [2011], and I’m certain it was gameplay. Definitely a work in progress, but the elements of gameplay were there - it wasn’t prerendered, and there was somebody controlling the game at the time. That said, it was also pretty obvious that the video in question was also heavily, heavily tailored to be watched by an audience and not actually played by a player. It was designed to show off the aesthetic and give an idea for what the game would play like, but it was highly unlikely the game would ever actually play exactly the way it looked.

The thing about gameplay demos and videos like that is that they are usually heavily scripted. They follow a predetermined sequence - start here, engage with this scene, show these powers, engage with that scene, show those weapons, run to this location where the next cinematic triggers, do this, do that, then it’s over. In many respects, what you’re watching in these cases is much more like an elaborate quick time event than free-form gameplay because robust gameplay systems aren’t yet in a state where the game can allow for players to do what they want. They might only have this one way to get through the demo, so they have to make sure whoever is playing is sticking to the script. The demo build won’t behave well if you don’t stick to the script - timing will get out of whack, scripted events will break, things won’t spawn or despawn correctly, incorrect or missing animations may get played on characters, etc. Furthermore, a lot of the prototypes end up using placeholder effects or data - like how the Vigors in the 2010 Bioshock Infinite gameplay video behaved really similarly to Plasmids from Bioshock. They probably were the abilities from Bioshock - put in to act as a placeholder. In essence, each video is very much on rails but most viewers don’t notice because they’re not the ones driving.

Furthermore, things change as the development team proceeds through the production phase. Elizabeth’s power set, for example, was a lot less well-defined in the 2010 demo than it was in the 2011 video, probably because the developers decided to focus Elizabeth’s gameplay on the tears in between (most likely to help differentiate her better from Booker). The gameplay videos serve as a snapshot in time to show what the developers wanted to present as the core experience for the game within a small time frame. My guess was that Irrational’s team had a lot of things they wanted to put into the game, and then started scaling back or adjusting them as they realized that some of these features were too resource-intensive, fragile (easy for players to mess up), or just lacking in fun.

Really, it’s almost never because of external pressure or story changes - executive meddling only tends to happen when development is already troubled, and story changes are almost never a factor when determining gameplay. If anything, it’s the other way around - the core gameplay dictates how the story unfolds, because it is way harder to develop gameplay than it is to change a story. No, what we saw in the progression of Bioshock Infinite is the same progression every game goes through - gameplay systems are implemented, reviewed, and then improved upon while schedule and effort permits. 

Remember, a lot of the stuff that gets cut before release is stuff that may have shown well in a best-case-scenario video, but couldn’t pass the worst-case test scenario. That’s really what a lot of games have troubles with - a feature or sequence looks great when everything lines up, but not every player is going to do the right thing at the right time. It’s these worst-case scenarios that end up driving a lot of gameplay, just because millions of people are going to be playing a AAA game and a lot of them aren’t going to play exactly the way you thought they would.

Got a burning question you want answered?

Hey Taylor, 

The beautiful girl you see in this video was my best friend Kelsey, who sadly passed away in August 2010. Most of my best memories of her involve you Taylor. She loved you so much and we use to spend every possible moment obsessing over you and your music.

I got to see you live in February 2010 but Kelsey didn’t so when you were on tv she filmed it and sung along in the background. Her dream was to meet you so i’ve made it my goal for you to know our story and all of little memories. Over time I will tell you all the little things Kelsey would of wanted you to know, and all the things I want you to know. 

This little video was actually in her funeral video and I will cherish It forever. Hope you like it Taylor!

Love Sara xxxx taylorswift

The nerdfighter census made me think about how I ended up a nerdfighter. So I think:

Charlie’s “Baby Food” video

Recommended Michael Aranda’s “Baby Foodz” video

Like Michael Aranda so browse his channel, come across “The Google Verb Meme Thing” video

Go to original video.

Became addicted to vlogbrothers.

A nerdfighter is born.

But yeah, Michael Aranda and the google verb meme thing definitely were involved.


no i didn’t fuss with the colors. he was just turning red.
