I'm going to go a bit out of my way here and make this more of a discussion than a fast paced, beat review. I played The Stanley Parable's demo as I was told I don't want to spoil the game and the demo should give you the feel for it. I hated it. It was boring and the worst kind of British humour.
Lately, I decided that these two games are probably very short and I want to know what people are talking about so I might as well watch a full playthrough. It's going to take less time and I'll get the cliff notes. And after doing that, those two games don't really feel like games but more of an interactive lecture.
I don't have a problem with that. I love interactive narrative very much. It's just that The Stanley Parable feels like interactive stand up and quite a boring and unfunny one. The Beginner's Guide has some more complex emotion but, again, if I was playing it, I would have probably quit very quickly.
So, what do I recommend? Go ahead, play it. Play the demo first but if you like it, play the games, if you have time. If you don't, or if you're not really having fun for a while, the playthroughs are there if you care about the talking points.

Her Story is a strange and interesting game, as its content is wholly full motion video of one character responding to the unknown questions of another character and its gameplay is just a, rather limited, search mechanism for a police data base of said videos.
But the performance is great, the idea is inventive, the mystery builds wonderfully and the slowly rising realisation which ends with a thwack of understanding is a excellent experience and what this game is truly all about.

Pretty much the Bond film we've been waiting years for and it's pretty mediocre as all the intrigue and back room dealings and subtle manipulations and long schemes unfolding in unexpected ways that the movie could have thrown at us are discarded in favour of a pretty standard action flick.
The action is pretty much forgettable, the mission is poorly orchestrated, the token love interest is about as token as it could be and the opposition is banal and about as token as the love interest so overall, a big let down following Skyfall and I still think they really should just do the reunion movie and seal the series (and the possibility to do that is fastly dwindling).

It's a fairly standard action movie with the kind of plot we saw several times before and it does so competently.
It's very professional and very straight to the point, nothing much to say about acting or directing, but it's a decent enough movie, but you can also skip it if it's not your cup of tea or you're stressed for time -- you won't miss much.

Since Waze is a global community driven navigation application, it seems to be a logical step to connect those who drive and those who need a ride.
There is some money involved "to cover the costs" but it seems rather voluntary.
I'm interested to see where this goes. Care to join?
