Singularity

Sadly, Singularity is a typical game of this day and age.  From a strictly technical standpoint, it's a perfectly serviceable first-person shooter in the mode of Half-Life 2.  In terms of story, art design, and gameplay elements, it bears the marks of editorial autocracy.The premise is certainly innocuous enough.  Around the late 1940s, Soviet miners working on Katorga-12, an island off the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula discover E99, a weird transuranic element with temporal properties.  An…See More

Trubetskoy replied to Hayen Mill's discussion 'Resistance: Fall of Man'

Trubetskoy replied to Hayen Mill's discussion 'OMG, The Postman is Piecraftian Dieselpunk(ish)'
"Speaking solely for myself here, I would not classify The Postman as "dieselpunk." In all honesty, I have never been that comfortable with Piecraft's linkage of dieselpunk with apocalyptic fiction. In tales set in a post-apocalypse,…"

Trubetskoy replied to Hayen Mill's discussion 'Objective/Subjective Dieselpunk definition'
"The discussion seems to have run aground, so here's a little push... Personally, I think that the "objective/subjective" argument is a false dichotomy. Genres are notoriously difficult to define, what with authors forever refusing…"
