I disagree, I think her tough and complicated adolescence was really well done, her character arc is a bildungsroman of a lonely and misfit teenager reminiscient of something like Holden Caulfield from Catcher in the Rye. Considering she was always in the shadow of her high-achieving sister, and had just moved to a new school not too long ago, I think her behavior is forgivable.

in retrospect, that tough phase of one’s life seems stupid and blunderous, especially as a much better-adjusted adult, but don’t forget how one saw the world and one’s place in it at that particular age.

IMO, it would be great to see a contemporary, non-MMO Dungeons & Dragons video game. A lot of the late 90s DnD themed RPGs are unplayable now thanks to advances in interfaces and usability made by games like Fallout and Skyrim.

For one, I think Playstation+ for online multiplayer is extremely problematic, it shuts people out of game culture and it prohibits stuff like Journey from ever existing in the first place.

exactly, stealth gameplay derives its core appeals from giving the player a wide range of options to create emergent strategies, and Dishonored gave a lot of those options, making it one of the best stealth games of last year. But punishing the player narratively by playing to the game’s core strengths is ludonarratively contradictory.
