The director of "Marion Bridge" made her second movie

The director of "Marion Bridge", Wiebke von Carolsfeld wrote and directed "Stay". (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2234032) It's a shame it took over 10 years for her to make another feature. "Marion Bridge" definitely stuck with me. It had its own distinct voice and felt somehow different and unexpecte...

Out of the closet

This makes me incredibly sad. I always thought Ellen freely chose to keep this part of her life private. Like "This is nobody's business and I'd like to be known for my work." Like she stood above all the speculation and innuendo. A sign of strength if you will. But that's not the world we live in, ...

Anybody actually played it yet? (possible spoilers)

It's fun to look for those dots. Still need to find most of them. Do some only appear after you did something specific or are they always there and you just need to find them? Searching for those dots constantly broke immersion for me. And pretty much like everything else in this game, your choices...

Advanced Experiments Don't worry, totally not worth it. It's a simple CIA training course. No narrative whatsoever. You need to finish in a certain amount of time. Most people will have to go twice. Thus arriving at 20+10=30 minutes of playtime. 24 different endings Yup. That number refers to the li...

Wow. That's a bummer. I hope you'll be able to understand her one day. Because as of now you're missing a major part of what makes Ellen exceptional.

Ryan in Beyond: Two Souls Even if you reject him at every turn after The Mission and you let him die in Black Sun. Jodie will profess her love to him. Maybe she's just trying to be kind, but for me it's one more sign that the player never truly was supposed to have any meaningful choice in this game...

I found a German Let's Play by an enthusiastic female player. And the localisation is surprisingly good. I'm actually enjoying it.

You mentioned The Last Of Us... Must... resist... ...can't. For me, TLOU is the pinnacle of interactive storytelling. I was never more immersed or emotionally invested in a videogame. Once you internalize the controls and move around the game space without thinking, you simply become Joel or at leas...

@ Jessevolanti1976 Trophy hunter, eh? I only ever hunted trophies for Demon's Souls and The Last Of Us. Platinum Trophies for these games came really easy because most trophies followed the game design organically. But I've given up trying to platinum this game. Many trophies actually work against t...

I don't really get why people would complain about that. I think it's rather admirable she agreed to this totally voluntary longform interview even when feeling a bit under the weather. And I assume this was a junket day, making it even more impressive.

@ plexus: You won't be able to suck at this game, that's kinda my point also. It's more difficult to find a fail condition in Beyond than to not die in something like Dark Souls. Great links, btw. They're totally ON topic. @ Dominik: The 'bar scene' is actually the only one I found to fall into that...

I agree, people who haven't played it should watch a walkthrough (no commentary). So if you can recommend one of those, feel free. But I've already played it and am more interested in other players' reactions by now. So I personally would prefer a Let's Play. Specifically one with the game in Englis...

I'd be interested to find some enjoyable Let's Plays of the game. Preferably not by some loudmouthed teenager... Any Suggestions? Right now, I'm watching this german couple playing the game in english and in Duo-Mode. They are totally into it and thus mostly quiet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcU...

I have. And Ellen is great in it, of course. Her best and most compelling work in years. But I wish I could find more positive things to say about this game. Apart from the acting, the game simply doesn't perform. Just the tiniest closer look reveals an utter lack of player choice and agency (exactl...

Ellen Page Rumored to Give voice in a Video Game?

I revise my former statement: Buying a PS3 for just one game is not excessive. It just has to be the right game. For me that game has been "Demon's Souls". This game severely punishes the player for dying. Not only do you have to start the current level all over again but you also lose ALL your prev...

Ellen Page Rumored to Give voice in a Video Game?

Thanks for the suggestions. There's some potential there. And that's basically what I'm looking for: good games I might have missed. Specifically PS3-exclusive games, like Metal Gear Solid. So I actually would prefer you not to cater to my tastes. Which are pretty inconsistent anyway: All-time Favor...
