Hey Matt and Quinn's,
Loved the new vids on Kingdom and one there was one point that came up that I hav been thinking about for a while. The idea that you can lose.
When Xcom and Xcom 2 landed I was so happy to see that I could actually lose the game. I know that you can add perma-death to some games but for someone who grew up feeding arcade machines it is odd to see how we have moved away from losing as a game mechanic. It seems to be being embraced a bit more and I am glad for it.
The issue then becomes did I lose because I messed up or did the game cheat/glitch me out of the win. Kind of the Gandhi nukes in Civ.
I never mind losing because I messed up, I hate losing because of a bad balance issue.
That's all, now back to our regular scheduled programming.
