EA says it isn't making Skate 4 and I'll never feel hope again

So WTF was with that tweet from EA community manager Daniel Lingen?I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it was a maverick attempt to gauge interest in the franchise, and he'll use all those #skate4 retweets and responses as ammo to pitch his higher ups on reviving the series.

You no talk good: how dialogue defines the games we play

As a person who traffics in the written word for a living, I find the way dialogue and storytelling are being devalued in games upsetting.This is even more crucial in games that do rely heavily on spoken and written dialogue to tell their stories, and those games aren’t just the usual suspects (RPGs, adventure games, and visual novels).
