Comment: "Phase". Not "Threat Level", not even "Level". (Score 1) 557

"Current level of influenza pandemic alert raised from phase 4 to 5"

Obviously as it spreads more, the risk is greater, but it isn't some "terror alert level" they're raising, it's the phase in the progression of the outbreak that they're tracking.

+ - How FPS storylines are written->

Might E. Mouse writes "Cynics might say "Who needs a storyline for an FPS game?" and if we're talking Quake or Doom then fair enough. But to brand the entire genre as lacking in story is to condem gems like [i]Half-Life 2[/i]. So what goes into writing a really compelling storyline for an FPS game then? bit-tech has a great article exploring this topic with the likes of Martin Lancaster, writer / designer for Crysis, Rob Yescombe, writer of Haze and more. A must read for anyone interested in getting into game design / writing."
