+Extra Credits The camera and sound quality on the iPad seems just as good if not better but I understand that trying to edit and use that footage is probably more difficult.

When players have mastered a game's mechanics, social challenges (and rewards!) keep things fresh. #ExtraCredits

Ah, yes. And if you build a "complex" system around that in games where this information is valuable to the player, you end up confusing and 'disengaging' anyone but the most avid math-crafters...

LoL Everyone plays this game differently I see :3
I am an explorer and tactical assassin. I normally don't run from any fight and love to look around the world as much as possible :D

Remember the Giant Dad: 16 strength to two-hand.
I know what you're saying: the zwei fricking carried me through my first playthrough, and I absolutely adore its pancake R2.

Dark Souls enables many different playstyles. Dan's playstyle is "Charge into death." #SideQuest

+Extra Credits I completely understand the pain of watching slow rolls, James. My fourth character is a relatively heavy armor and weapon melee (Artorias set, Silver Knight Shield, and Artorias Greatsword), and it bugs me to watch them do the medium roll. Back to agile characters for me after this build.

That said, I'm loving the series.

To fulfll his dream of Rome restored, Justinian turned to talented - but deeply flawed - advisors. #ExtraHistory

+LordBloodySoul Except when the second history is so outrageous and fanciful to be impossible. Most historians are certain the second history was written as a sort of personal vendetta, ignoring the facts and just trying to get back at Justinian during a time when the author had fallen from favor and was vengeful.

Love, and let love! ‪#‎LoveWins

"The court now holds that same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry. No longer may this liberty be denied to them."
In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court ruled Friday that states cannot ban same-sex marriage, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a victory that until very recently would have seemed unthinkable.

Game mechanics are just the beginning: online games must reward new players for learning social tasks. #ExtraCredits

Because Games Matter
Introduction

Whether you're looking for a game industry career or simply curious about the way game developers think, Extra Credits makes video game design approachable by exploring concepts like gamification, perfect imbalance, the skinner box, the uncanny valley, and more. Sometimes we also like to recommend a few games you might not have tried!

Join us on Extra Credits every Wednesday as we take a deeper look at games: how they are made, what they mean, and how we can make them better.
