A lot of us at the studio really like audio and HiFi. Most of the times, there is some sort of music playing at our main working space on our beloved Echo which in turn plays from Spotify.
I was recently called in to judge a Design championship event at SBOA school. The event hosted different competitions across Industrial design, Game design, App design and Film making and I was judging for Game Design which was essentially games that the school children put together- class 5 to class 10. Like always I was skeptical when I went in (You see,your Producer/ Game Dev ego wont go easy on you) and waited for the first set of team to hit me up with their submissions and boy was I in for a surprise!

Lets cut to the chase. To me this is hand down one of the best MODs created for a Multiplayer. Of course many would argue Counter Strike would still take that spot. In a way yes, but for a grand scale of Multiplayer action, I always lean on to Desert Combat, the MOD created out of Battlefield 1942. So what makes it special ? Well, for starters the MOD re-imagined the original game completely from the ground up and made it look like an all new game with no traces of BF1942 seen. Imagine taking a World War based shooter and doing a complete overhaul by incorporating modern weapons, modern vehicles/Aircraft and to top it all, a super slick Helicopter whose mechanics never existed in the original version. This was never achieved by simply switching out the original weapons with modern ones, but by painstakingly creating them and balancing them, every single aspect of it.
For starters this isn’t a review by any means but my mere take after experiencing the much awaited God of war. The latest installment has reinvented itself on the PS4 – the first ever native game for the platform and has done that for good.
Its yet another mad rush towards GDC this year. This super short post should give an idea of how limited we are on time at this point!
