The nimbleness of Juliet Starling, the player character in Lollipop Chainsaw, is neatly offset by her slow and bulky weapon of choice, leading to a player who can jump, dodge, and pirouette away from danger with ease, but must leave themselves completely open to attack whenever going on the offensive. This dichotomy nicely compliments the focus on unlocking combos for advancement, as emphasis is placed on maintaining a string of attacks rather than dealing out just one or two very strong ones.

During F.E.A.R., the player is able to make use of a slow-motion ability that allows them to make much more accurate shots and movements during a short period of time. In order to emphasize this, the game makes use of a ton of feedback (explosions starting up, blood erupting from bodies, glass breaking apart in pieces) to make every shot made in this mode feel that much more incredible.

Vehicle combat and exploration are two of the most important pillars of design in Mad Max, and the car upgrade system greatly reinforces this. Because parts and boosters can be scavenged from downed enemy vehicles, the core gameplay loop of fighting/exploring with vehicles is supported even when it’s not the focus of play.

The stages in Mortal Kombat X provide special additions to each fight, with background objects, walls, and even people providing an extra edge that can be taken advantage of in interesting ways. Whether slamming your opponent with a unlucky onlooker or breaking a barrel over their skull, these additions were provided with the hope that even a player doing badly can get in a free shot by having the luck and focus to make use of them.

Arrow's Bruce Wayne 'Crossover': Stephen Amell Reveals Its Bat-Story
Batman trumps The Biebs every time. Weeks after The CW’s Arrow treated viewers to a Bruce Wayne shout-out, series lead Stephen Amell has detailed how he helped make it happen — and how shocked he was to see it make it to air
By Matt Webb Mitovich


“The original version of that script, which came out right before Comic-Con, [had] Oliver referencing a famous name,” Amell shared with reporters on set Tuesday. “I can’t remember what the placeholder was — I think it might have been Justin Bieber — but I looked at it and thought to myself, ‘This is a cool opportunity.‘”

Amell ran his idea by Arrowverse overseer Greg Berlanti, who suggested the actor reach out directly to DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns (noting, “You’ll probably have better luck than I would”). Amell aimed to do just that at DC Comics’ Comic-Con soiree, but instead found himself in a four-way conversation with Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president Diane Nelson and Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara.

“I was like, ‘Guys, I have an idea! It will cost you nothing. I think it’d be really fun. It opens the door to a lot of possibilities,'” Amell recalls saying, “because I’ve always thought that our iteration of Oliver Queen and the way that we built this character, obviously, has so many similarities to Bruce Wayne and Batman, and so much of the inspiration for the early parts of our show was taken from the [Christopher] Nolan [Batman movies].”

Amell also appreciated the semi-taunting nature of Mayor Queen’s suggestion that billionaire Bruce Wayne has been scampering around Star City as a costumed vigilante.

“I’ve always thought that Bruce Wayne would be an interesting ally on the show and an even more interesting villain — to Oliver, which… just means that they don’t like each other,” the Arrow star says. “So anyway, I have this holy trinity [of executives] in front of me, and I pitched this idea. I’ve got all my follow-up points, and Kevin Tsujihara just goes, ‘Yeah, sure.’ I said, ‘Really?’ He said, ‘Yeah, that sounds fun. Do that.’ So we did it.”

Though even after filming said shout-out, Amell had his Bat-doubts: “I didn’t actually believe that it would make it until I actually saw it in the locked cut!” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)

So, I was just thinking… it just sort of dawned on me sometime in the last day or so…

Yep.

The more open-world design of Scribblenauts Unlimited allowed the game to provide a larger variety of challenges to the player, with puzzles and quests no longer contained exclusively to single-room areas. With this change, the game is able to spread out what each of these challenges entail, as well as provide the player with a greater number of options in terms of how they’d like to progress through the game. It also allows for rewards from micro-puzzle and exploration, thus making the game’s core focus, Starites, feel that much more impressive when you collect them at the end of a full challenge.

The combat system introduced in Batman: Arkham Asylum is built around encounters expanding outward from basic attacks and counters. This is meant to A) allow players to complete many (but not all) combat encounters with only a modicum of skill, B) give a multitude of opportunities to throw in additional pieces (batarangs, dive kicks, etc.) without overwhelming the whole system, and C) deliver the feeling of almost effortless, absolute power and skill that Batman possesses to the player during play.
