Singularity

WGA reveal video game writing nominees, some of which are questionable

The video game industry may be a massive one both in terms of popularity and the revenue it brings in, but when it comes to recognizing the people behind the games things are lacking a bit.  There are a few reputable award shows within the industry, but as far as games getting recognized in the mainstream for their merits the biggest event we have is the Spike Video Game Awards, a show which we know is nothing more than a commercial.

Singularity Single Player [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The game is pure fun. While it might not be the most in-depth or technical shooter that you ever play, you will have a lot of fun with the weapons and abilities that the game offers up.

The Pros: 

Fun gameplay. Interesting weapons. Proper uses of time manipulation (finally). Compelling story. Interesting characters. Solid voice-acting.

The Cons: 

Short single player experience. Texture pop-in issues on the PC version. Predictable story "twists." Weak feeling "morality choice" at the game's finale.

Time Manipulation is an idea that I have always thought would work perfectly for video games. The ability to slow time down and dodge bullets, or run in and hit people from behind while they are frozen in time. Of course there are much more elaborate uses as well, but these are the main ones that I’ve been waiting a long while for. Singularity finally allows for this kind of gameplay, and plenty of other interesting twists on the usage of time through localized time distortion.

Activsion's time travel fps game Singularity gets delayed again

I’m not sure how relevant this news will be for some but Activision’s time manipulation fps game Singularity has been delayed again. Yes, the game is receiving another delay if Gamestop’s listing is to be believed.  Singularity was originally set for release in November but was delayed so it wouldn’t compete against this small Activision property called Modern Warfare 2.
