The only way I can see Activision not having a marketing deal through a first party is if neither Microsoft nor Sony wanted to pay for it. In that case they'd have to do it on their own. I still doubt it. Sony would probably glue buckets at the thought of taking the marketing deal of one of the biggest Xbox associated franchises. If I were them there would be no way in hell I'd pass up the opportunity.

Sony has several nice montages. And hats.

Yes. 
The vast majority of language learning software that I've seen is basically a glorified vocabulary list. 

Being in a class or even better, going there and being part of that culture are generally the best ways to learn. 
Like Skyrim in French.  Except even better, perhaps even having a school for language in the game. 
An idea would be to have the game's language become more difficult very slowly. 
Starting out with very simple words, and mostly English and over time transitioning to more complicated language. 

(This'd be cool if AI was complete too, being able to have unscripted conversations with NPCs).

Kingdom Hearts 1 Final Mix is the version that never came to the West - was only available in Japan.

It includes exclusive bosses, storyline cutscenes, weapons, items, abilities, etc not seen in the original game that came out in NA/EU.

They did the same thing with Kingdom Hearts 2 and Birth By Sleep - both of which are on KH 2.5 HD Remix.

Still pissed off that they did the same thing with Final Fantasy XII - the Zodiac Edition came out only in Japan :(! I hope they make a PS4 HD remaster of FFXII that includes the Zodiac Edition content.

You kept on saying you were getting a 3DS in two weeks.  You said that for like 3 months.


No I didnt.

I always buy new game systems during the black friday/holidays since the day I bought my PS3 which was back in 2011.


Black Friday 2011 - PS3
Black Friday 2012 - PC GFX Upgrade
Black Friday 2013 - 3DS XL
Black Friday 2014 - WiiU

This black friday I will get PS4 and next black friday a new PC (will build a custom one).

No I didnt...never said I would buy anything before holidays...

I always wait for holiday deals whenever buying a new piece of hardware.

Edit: Only thing I did say from what I remember is about the Vita but due to lack of support from Sony I decided to opt out of it.

4 Sony consoles with a shame ton more of third party titles that I have missed as well....stop spinning the argument you woman!

No - that is false. You said I dont buy Sony games - which means I dont buy any at all but that is false. I do buy Sony games.

I never had a PS1 so you can cross that. I bought a PS2 mainly for third party titles but was introduced to Sony's first party titles - my main favorite IP from them is God of War. I fell in love with Wipeout on PSP and bought Jeanne D' Arc which plays better than most third party strategy jRPGs.

I'm planning to get Jak Trilogy, Sly Cooper collection, and Ratchet and Clank games on the PS3 in the future (have All 4 One). I'll be getting the next Gran Turismo when it comes out on PS4 (I have GT on PSP though) - and plan to get Bloodborne and The Last Of Us on PS4 as well.

----
If this is about the Vita, then lol @ Sony's support for it.

What games do Vita have other than Uncharted GA , Wipeout 2048 and Gravity Rush/Daze? Dont say Killzone (not a fan of the series) or any of the low tier IPs - I meant big IP titles - they can be repeats such as Uncharted, WipeOut, etc.

When was the last time they released a first party title on the Vita that actually sparked interest in people to getting the system? Dont say Borderlands 2....

Aside from Uncharted GA, Wipeout 2048, Gravity Rush/Daze, Persona 4 Golden, Tales of Hearts R, Disgaea 3/4 ports and the Muramasa Blade ports - all of which I can easily play on PS3/Wii......what other games are worth getting that I cant already get on PS3/PC?

They dont even have a Final Fantasy game....some Sony console.

I will say killzone because it is one of the best games on the system. That's four very good Sony games, and there are more. Since you only buy like 3 Sony games max per system, sometimes slightly more, I don't see what's wrong with having four good ones and then more smaller ones

Fallout 4- XBO(I could sadly see this happening)
Skies of Arcadia Reboot-WIIU(possible in my opinion)
I base this off the leak from the guy who has close relations with Nintendo(said 3 more 3rd party exclusives other than Devil's Third)
and some things from shinobi and the above posts. XD

Lol there is no way Fallout 4 will be XBO exclusive. At absolute worst it would be a timed exclusive like TR if MS buys them out

Knowing Microsoft they will pay big bucks for some big exclusive in 2016- all they got is quantum, scale, and crack which isnt really halo or forza blockbuster games.
I wouldnt be surprised if Microsoft buys out an exclusive they think would do well.

I buy based on good number of first and third party titles. PS1, PS2, PS3 and even PSP to a certain extent had a great collection of games. If anything I bet you that the Vita games will eventually become available via Sony doing PSN classics on PS4 or a emulator similar to the PSP emulator will be made.

Vita has a dancing game coming as a third party title and a lot of niche low tier titles which I have no interest in.

There hasnt been anything news worthy coming out for Vita so it looks bleak on my list. PS4 on the other hand has a lot of nice titles coming out and there's some PS3 games that I still need to get. I dont "Only buy 3 sony games max per system" which to begin with is a battleship argument also, not sure why you are even making this argument when it has nothing to do with anything related to this topic....or the discussion beforehand.


You don't even buy Sony games lol so that shouldn't matter that much to you.


Apparently it doesnt matter for Sony either @ Vita - but anyways I cant wait to get the better choice: PS4 :)

I reiterate my point. How is it bulls hit when you gave me a list with about that number of Sony games per system. Vita has more than 5 Sony games in its own right. Sonys support shouldn't be the excuse in your case imo, but I can see the lack of general support being a point

I gave you a list of what I have at this time. Not what I have for each system - you say I only buy few first party games per system which isnt true.

That  doesnt mean that is all I'm going to have. There's more PS2 and PS3 games that I still want to get and will get. Unlike you who never go back to other systems and only play newer systems, I play all game systems however old they are and whatever order I want to play them.

The overall lack of support from the major companies is the reason why I'm not getting a Vita. Sony not supporting the system is the final nail in the coffin for my decision. They havent released anything huge in the past year. No Gran Turismo, No Uncharted, No God of War (I dont include a port of God of War collection since I have it already on PS2 AND PS3), etc.

I dont want overrated indie games that I already have on Steam.
I dont want full price vita ports of PS3 games that I can already get half of the price on PS3/PC.

P.S. Stop acting like a VGChartz Nintendo Defender. The discussion I had with Kryta had nothing to do with how many first party titles I get on a system , you just brought that out of the blue and that is battleship.

Post by: Dr. Pez on May 14, 2015, 11:29 AM
It was not out of the blue. It was a response to your justifying of not getting the Vita. Vita has a lot of games already out and on the way in the genres you play the most, you just don't seem to know about them.

Here are over 350 games coming out for Vita in 2015: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=969122&highlight=upcoming+games
In this list there are a LOT of Japanese games not coming to other consoles, and the same can be said for games that are already out. It's annoying when people say Vita has no gaemz, because it does. Most of them are just low-profile but many are still very good. Sony is supporting the system by getting 3rd party support in the way of Japanese games, indies and ports. Can anyone blame them for not making Vita exclusives when almost all of their games on Vita were commercial flops and all of their PS4 games were hits? I can't. I can see that there are already plenty of Sony games out on Vita though and a lot more non-Sony games (some are even high profile like RE, Persona)

Also, you seem angry. I am not attacking you, I'm just arguing against your points.

My reasons are justified quite well for not getting the Vita at this point in time compared to what I had experienced with the PSP - a system with a decent amount of first party support and great third party support. At the price point it is on now there's no reason for me to get a Vita especially over a PS4.

Vita has a lot of games already out and on the way in the genres you play the most, you just don't seem to know about them.


Yeah it has a lot of games but not a lot of games that pique my interest in forking out $150+ dollars.

Also just because I like a particular genre- doesnt mean I like every single game in that genre. There's a reason why I dont like Xenoblade, why I never tried out Suikoden, etc. Just because its my favorite genre - doesnt warrant a purchase. I'm pretty sure the same can be said for people who like FPS games or racing games, they dont buy every single one out there.

And yes I do know what Vita has, I check gaming news out almost everyday (mainly during my break from work) on sites like GAF and Siliconera. Actual news - not gaming sales.

It's annoying when people say Vita has no gaemz, because it does.


Yeah I agree its annoying, you know whats even more annoying? People who assume that I have that very same mind set - not once did I say "Vita haz no gamez" infact I even told you some games that I am interested in getting earlier, wat is logic. Dont push other people's battleship down my throats or use it as my own words because they are not my words.

Most of them are just low-profile but many are still very good.


And thats the reason why I dont want to buy them, low-profile also can mean low tier. I'm not gonna buy some niche otaku games that appeal to the otaku fanbase. If you are into that kind of stuff, good for you - I'm not.


Sony is supporting the system by getting 3rd party support in the way of Japanese games, indies and ports.


Thats nice and all except, if you dont bring out games of your own - people are gonna lose even more faith in your system. I'll get a Vita but definitely not at the current MSRP and absolutely not before the PS4 which has the superior first party AND third party support.

Can anyone blame them for not making Vita exclusives when almost all of their games on Vita were commercial flops and all of their PS4 games were hits?


That blame should be given to their developers themselves - and it should not be an excuse for dropping first party support to what it is now.


Also, you seem angry. I am not attacking you, I'm just arguing against your points.


I'm angry because you are calling me out for not getting a Vita and saying that I wouldnt of bought it even with Sony support (from your original post that is how it meant). Which is completely untrue and if anything would of been a much more powerful drive for me to get a Vita - but due to the lack of first party support - my priorities of getting a Vita are lower than they were a year ago or so.

I dont say that you dont buy a 3DS because so and so - I couldnt care less if I wanted to if you wanted a 3DS or not. I'm not sure why you have your jammies rustled cause I said I am putting the Vita on a low priority list.

Brave Story New Traveler

^ These arent "PSN" titles - these are actual PSP titles. Now compare this list to the Vita list of games I want...and you'll understand why the Vita as a purchase is a low priority for me.

Throughout the coming year, we will continue to execute our proven strategy of launching a select array of the highest-quality titles, led by new annual releases of NBA 2K and WWE 2K; Battleborn, a groundbreaking new intellectual property from Gearbox Software; and a soon-to-be announced new triple-A title from 2K.

Throughout the coming year, we will continue to execute our proven strategy of launching a select array of the highest-quality titles, led by new annual releases of NBA 2K and WWE 2K; Battleborn, a groundbreaking new intellectual property from Gearbox Software; and a soon-to-be announced new triple-A title from 2K.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper on iOS/Android.

Its a F2P game but its pretty great - based on a stamina system, not a pay 2 win system . Plays like a normal turned based jRPG.

It gets updates each week - its crazzzzzzeeeeeeh. You can go through all FF games storylines and boss battles. The shots I posted above show FF8 since you love 8 I posted them lol

Really? I actually enjoyed it o.O. Might be cause of the controls? I used mouse and keyboard (played steam version).

I think its because ME1 is more of a RPG and I heard that the sequels are less of a RPG and more of a FPS game - maybe thats why?

Here's me playing a bit of it ;O!

I'm getting all multiplats on steam and will be building a new PC next year for them.

As for exclusives I plan to get a PS4 this year and buy The Last of Us Remastered, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Persona 5 as my first 3 games for the system.

I found the gameplay to be enjoyable - I dont think its because its outdated that you dont like it - I think its mainly cause you're expecting it to be an actual TPS when it is actually a RPG. If you want to enjoy an actual great TPS - try Max Payne 3.


who said anything about it not being an RPG? the game has shooting and cover mechanics and they are very sub par, and the devs should have looked at gears when making their shooting mechanics.


Why should a RPG developer look at what a shooter developer makes o.O

Like Pezus says - ME2 and ME3 go in a completely different direction so you might enjoy that a bit more since its more of a shooter than a RPG.

In terms of surviving battle in ME1 - get better equips, get a better shield and lrn2 use your special abilities like the shield regeneration skill you bananawoman :O!

Also dont depend on the AI cause they are dumb :(!

And I agree.
GTA V..  Im replaying the missions to get the golds, the last trophy needed for plat.  It comes down to something that is so fudgy basic.  restarting.   you can replay the mission after its done, you get retries when you die or miss checkmarks etc,  but they wont give you a restart option.   Plus, some missions require a no contact or dents etc in races.  you need to completely leave the mission in order to restart that counter, which takes reloading the single player.  and that doesnt even get into the AI crashing into you.

plus they have missions that have time constaints, but when you reload it to replay it, you start on foot, rather than in a car like you would have in the mission, so its handicapping you from the start

I also didn't like GTA because of things like that. Just so bloody slow unless you do the exact correct thing.

Not always, in single player games where the isn't too much to do trophy hunting gives you some more things to do and prolongs your playtime. Which is a good thing if you like playing that game. In GTA V's case there is a ridiculous amount of things to do and endless fun if you get a group of friends together, no need to trophy hunt.

gamrConnect Forums - Another departure from Remedy: is Quantum Break development at risk? (http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=203725)

Quote
After the departure of the veteran Oskari Hakkinen from Remedy (http://venturebeat.com/2015/05/26/remedy-veteran-starts-new-finnish-game-startup/), today another game developer has left the team behind Max Payne and Alan Wake, Matias Myllyrinne (http://remedygames.com/a-late-goodbye/).

 Because of the departure of these two prominent game designers right in the middle of Quantum Break development it seems to me that everything isn't going according to the plans. We already know that Microsoft shut down his entertainment studios, the same studios that had to produce the tv series of Quantum break, so I have very little hope to see this peculiarity of the game.

 My opinion is that we won't see Quantum Break at this E3 and that the development time will be long, I mean like Alan Wake long. I can't see this game coming out before 2017 if I have to take a guess.  

 What do you think about it? Please share your thoughts.

The CEO doesn't have much involvement in the development of the game though, if any though. Losing staff is never good but I don't think it is necessarily a sign of the game not doing so well.

Yeah. Splatoon is more niche than anything there. Except maybe Rage but that's just because the game isn't good.

"The reason for that decision is that the team was thinking of using a mix of old footage,"

Yeah, I would be surprised if they're even working on the game at this point. Why should there be any new footage? It's not like the game has been over 10 years in the oven, is it?

Have read a few comments over this gen where people have said platform X has the best games based on either the top 10 metacritic scores or top 20, thought I'd do an average of the total scores for each Gen 8 platform to see whats what.

 Results are:

 Wii U: 68.14% from 206 games

 XB1: 70.64% from 223 games

 PS4: 72.06% from 286 games

 Personally I was surprised by both Nintendo and XB1 scores. Nintendo because I thought it would be higher given the calibre of Nintendo and the lower amount of shovelware this gen, and XB1 because its quite close to the PS4 despite known performance deficits especially in 3rd party games. PS4 comes out on top and with the most reviewed games, impressive despite being on the market a full year less than the Wii U. 

 Overall quite close despite the rhetoric that comes out sometimes, anyone else surprised?

Famitsu interview (http://gematsu.com/2015/07/sega-current-console-market-potential-tgs-announcement#wI5g4qRZ7EFbXpsc.99) with Sega president Haruki Satomi.

Quote
How are you thinking about the current home console market?

Satomi: "Looking at the Japanese domestic market, you get the impression things are pretty rough, but globally, the PS4 has had the fastest console sales in history, so I think there are opportunities out there.

"I'm feeling a particular response from Asia. The Chinese version of Yakuza 0 sold more than expected.

"We've learned a lot about the western market from Atlus. If we can deliver high-quality titles to fans of Japanese games, I think we have a decent chance of making it overseas."

What specific efforts are you putting into your future home console games?

"Right now, I talk to our team about stressing quality over all else. The west is very schedule-oriented, but that means that if we can't maintain our usual quality on a project, we shouldn't put it out. Old Sega worked hard to establish a level of trust with its fans, but when I take a hard look at the past 10 years, I can see there have been some titles that betrayed that trust."

Can we expect a high-quality title to be released during the second half of the year?

"Since we're focused on quality, I can't make any promises, but I do want to make an announcement of some sort regarding a home console game at the Tokyo Game Show."
Hopefully, this means Sega starts localizing their games like Yakuza 0, Shining Resonance, and Phantasy Star. But seriously, did it have to take Atlus to get Sega's head out of its dog? -_-"

 Is the Witcher 3 too short? - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1076579)

Quote
Spoiler warning for those who are not where I am at in the game, I'm not sure if i'll be spoiling anything significant, but there may be others who may spoil things accidentally so you have been warned.Also, please don't spoil anything for me beyond the point in the story in which I am talking about, thanks! I put so much time into this game that I don't want the ending or anything related to it to be spoiledMy point: The game is claiming that I have played for 4 days, 2 hours, 2 minutes and 35 seconds. How long have I actually played? I have no clue because there was a bug that messed up the in game count of how long I have played.
 So lets say for arguments sake that I have played for somewhere between 60-100 hours. Somewhere in between there, I honestly have no clue, I havent been counting but I have had numerous 8 hour sessions with this masterpiece of a game, yet I feel a bit empty as I type this.
 Beyond the side quests and witch hunts, DLC quests, etc. Where the hell is this game?
 Is this game literally Velen, Novigrad, Skellige, two seconds at Kaer Morhen and then the final area? Really?
 Not to say that there isn't enough content in the game itself, but in the main story I'm kinda sitting here feeling like what the hell did I do? Did some fetch style quests, found out where Ciri is and now just go get her, etc?
 Thats it?
 I havent played the previous games so I'm not sure how side quest heavy the previous games were, but from my perspective, where the hell are the main quests? It seems as though if you just wanted to do the main story, you could have finished the game in 30 hours or so.
 Now, I understand that 30 hours is a long time and stuff, but from my perspective, I just want some more Witcher. I didn't think i'd be finished with this game for another month at least and have taken breaks here and there to play other games just so that I can spread out my time with TW3, but now that the game is warning me that I am at the end once I reached the Island in the mists I'm feeling kinda lost.
 I am more than thankful for the unknown amount of hours that I have pumped into this game, its easily the game of this generation for me right now, but what the hell?
 Does anyone else feel the same way?
 Again, i'm not saying that the overall game is short or that the developers didn't put enough content into it or aren't continuing to do so, i'm just speaking to the overall story. I just feel that there should have been some more stuff.
 I'm probably just gonna finish up 3 more side quests and then finish the main story and wait for the expansion at this point. I can only hope that the last section of this game adds another 20 hours or so to the main story.
 
lol

"60-100 hours"

"Too short"

Well I am playing Arkham Origins and enjoying it a lot! Don't get the reviews. How is Arkham City around 95 while this is almost down to 70?? Feels more like an 85 to me.
Gaming "journalism" has more or less turned into entitled shame.  I actually enjoyed the half of Origins more than the half of Arkham Knight that I've played.  But people hate on Origins for essentially unjustifiable reasons.  It being Christmas, thus everyone at home to be a lame excuse but say nothing when Gotham was evacuated in Knight for even less believable reasons.

Evacuating a city because of a bomb threat is more unbelievable than every single person being at home because its Christmas?  

I don't understand how that works.  
Cities do get evacuated for threats, when's the last time you saw every single person gone because of Christmas?

Because it's Batman.  There has never been a situation where he had to evacuate the city.  Because he knows he'll always stop the villain.  Plus there's a prideship in Gotham.  Some leave, but there will always be people willing to stay and defend the city.  That's why it's unbelievable.

Lots of people do stay back.
Police, news reporback.some vigilante types.  
Anyway, the thing they were pushing at the beginning was that it was a bigger enemy than Batman ever fought before.  
To be honest that logic seems a bit circular.

Oh I know, it just bugs me.  Game reviewers are so hypocritical is all.  Though they really dropped the ball with Knight's story.  Not so much the "Surprise" but how everyone is relegated to side characters.  Scarecrow had an idea (Bane's comic idea), yet they don't go through with that and he's become a plot device.

It's not just the kids and their questions but sometimes it's the way the devs answered them. Like when the kid wanted an autograph, they turned into smart  asses and ask is that really your question. I would have said "he'll ya, bring it up here"  but the kid that asked how much money do you have, as a parent I would have had to pull him aside and explan why he shouldn't ask questions like that. And the autism question kid, I would have slaped him in the back of the head.

Why?
Its just generally badly made, lots of little things which ruin up the experience add up to a lot. I said that then because I was waiting for ages to join a multiplayer game (multiplayer is dead already) and when I eventually did it carried on searching for a game as if I wasn't it one. Then half way through the race it stopped searching and said no race could be found and kicked me out of the one I was in.

Came across this post by Amir0x on GAF regarding MS's parity clause.

NeoGAF - View Single Post -  Phil Spencer: Parity is a hell of a Clause (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=172711640&postcount=1182)

Quote
I find it so iced up how this whole thing is playing out, because it's so transparently targeted to try to shush up critics. If you ask about detail, they say they can't discuss it because everyone is NDA'd.  You ask the other companies about their policies for indies, and they are open about much of this sort of stuff these days.  If it was all sugar and rainbows, why is one company desperately trying to conceal the truth behind couched language and repeated garbage like what Spencer keeps saying? Then every time a dev speaks about it on neoGAF, suddenly the next day they're contacted by Microsoft, told to sign an NDA, and then suddenly it's "oh it's not so bad anymore it used to be a lot worse but now they're working with us and we can put our game on the system." At this point it seems the best route for any indie dev is basically to loudly go on neoGAF and complain about the red tape and nonsense and hoops and how many ways XBL on XBO is inconvenient compared to PSN, and then magically Phil Spencer will swoop to your twitter and caress you in his golden arms and tell you everything is going to be OK - and of course just enough swag so that you can come back on neoGAF and say it's not really that bad anymore, so people need to adjust their expectations cause it was once worse.  Except of course they can't discuss specifically why, because NDA. I'm sorry but these journalists need to do their damned job already and push back against this whole atmospheric of shady dealings.  How come when Spencer does this wormy nonsense mealy speech for the billionth time about talking to them, the response from the game journalist wasn't "I'm sorry this is nonsense.  You can't say you don't have a parity clause and then note a scenario in which a game comes out first for your competitor and needs to talk to you if they want an exemption for adding content."   This TALK TO US™ clause is battleship, full stop.  This COMPLAIN ON NEOGAF FOR SUCCESS™ clause is obscene.  This IF YOU WERE TIMED PS4/WII U EXCLUSIVE YOU REALLY SHOULD ADD SOMETHING TO YOUR RELEASE ON XBO BECAUSE DADDY KNOWS BEST FOR YOU™ clause is just offensive.  Indies know what is best for Indies; Phil Spencer knows what is best for Phil Spencer alone.  In essence, this entire discussion as it stands shouldn't even have a reason to exist.  But Microsoft keeps making reasons, because they're assholes on this subject and still don't get it.

 Dragon Quest press event to be held on 7/28 in Japan, livestreamed - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1083695)

Quote
Revealed in the latest issue of Jump magazine alongside this week's DQ scoops (Hoshi no DQ and DQ Heroes II), Square Enix will be holding an event next week on 7/28 with a focus on the series. Jump is promising information on "that big title" in their 8/3 issue as well which seems to point to a Dragon Quest 11 announcement.
 The scans says the event will be livestreamed so we'll likely hear official details soon.

at the end MS is really only hurting them selfs with this. PS4 continues to sell way more, and indies are releasing on PS4 and PC, they dont need XB1, this results in games releasing on PS4 and PC first, and sometimes exclusively. Micosoft can keep on bullying, but indies can simply chose to not even interact with them, and its microsofts loss.

its more of an "interactive movie". i have yet to see one person actually explain what this means and how "its more of an interactive movie" than a game. does the combat not qualify it as a game? the stealth? exploration? the upgrades of weapons? the creation of tools and weapons like bombs, shivs and health kits?

is every game with a strong narrative and cinematic cut scenes considered a movie? is Uncharted a movie? is God of War a movie? is The Sims an interactive reality TV show?

Rocket league is honestly the Playstation version of splatoon.  

Smash hit out of nowhere and it's exactly the kind of game Nintendo fans would love.  Even has an arena exactly like super Mario.  

Nintendo should make a splatoon arena racer based on this.

whats the basis that metacritic sets weighted reviews on?

 is there a quality check on reviews? do they have to meet certain standards? is there a certain set of requirements for reviewers and reviews?

or does it just come down to how popular a site is? because we all know popularity sure as hell doesnt meen quality. and Metacritic basing its weighted reviews on popularity is a joke, considering metacritics supposed purpose to measure quality.

one thing is for sure, the gaming industry would be MUCH better without numbered reviews.

PSVR or OR, that is the question.....
Can't forget Vive.


The only thing OR has going for it is exclusives and support IMO. Vive has better specs and is just a much better hardware solution, but most games will probably lack official support. Then PSVR has great hardware and great software, but it has worse graphics. PS4 is mighty powerful enough, but graphic joker games will naturally look better on PC.



Assuming you have a gaming rig, honestly think it comes down to what type of VR games you want to play. OR if you want to play every game in VR, Vive if you want graphic joker games in VR, and PSVR if you want VR dedicated games. Personally I'm getting PSVR for PS4/work and hopefully Vive for PC.

Does the consumer OR still have that non-RGB display thingy?
I'd love to get one for PS4 and PC, but moneys gotta be tight for a while.  
I'd get a PSVR easily, but I'm concerned about support.  
If PC support were to dry up, at least then people would probably mod quite a few games anyway.

 OpenCritic - A new game-only review aggregator - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1118768)

Quote
OpenCritic (http://opencritic.com), a new game-only review aggregator, has launched (full disclosure my friend helped build it and gave me the heads up that they launched today). It includes some nice features that MetaCritic doesn’t have. Most notably you can exclude publications you don’t usually agree with or build a score using only your favorite publications.  Another big feature for me is the crawlers constantly scanning, even for games it’s already seen. As publications have their “x weeks-in” or post-patch review updates the score will update automatically to reflect them.  
 The “Open” name and the FAQ suggests they are aiming for transparency both in how reviews are scraped and in the formulas used to normalize and calculate scores. They’re also aiming to let community feedback help shape the process.OpenCritic (http://opencritic.com)

 Shovel Knight XB1 Retail Release Cancelled Due To "Publishing Policies" - NeoGAF (http://neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1122048)

Quote
(http://yachtclubgames.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/banner_physicalreleaseupdate.png) This was assumed to be coming after retail listings for XB1 versions of the retail release were removed and orders cancelled but this was the first time we got confirmation.
Quote
With extremely heavy hearts, we're sad to announce there will not be an Xbox One physical version this holiday. We really gave it our best effort, but unfortunately, because of publishing policies on that platform that are totally beyond our control, we couldn't make it happen. We're very sorry…we know there is a lot of interest - the pre-orders were really good and we thank everyone for their support! We'll keep fighting to get a retail version on Xbox One, but as of now, the boxed version is in indefinite  limbo. The digital version of Shovel Knight on Xbox One is already available and will, of course, continue to receive new updates and our full support!

 
Certainly disappointing to see. Perhaps this was an issue with the minimum quantities of discs orderable from Microsoft?

Yes. Kagari actually pointed this out months ago. Whenever publishers wants to release a game physically for the XBO, Microsoft requires them to print a very high minimum amount of copies. This is why a lot of smaller Japanese titles have skipped the 360 and are skipping the XBO. In fact, the XBO version of Type-0 sold below the minimum print order (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=165670127&postcount=7917) in the US which likely pissed SE off.

 Assassin's Creed: Syndicate leaks early, PS4 impressions not... great. - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1127718)

Quote
Edit:  I'll amend this post with GAFer impressions if you guys would prefer that.
 Dude got a copy early in the Middle East.  Pictures at the linkhttp://www.gamepur.com/news/20841-as...phics-are.html (http://www.gamepur.com/news/20841-assassins-creed-syndicate-early-owner-review-fps-atrocious-ps4-graphics-are.html)https://www.reddit.com/r/assassinscr...ys_now_and_it/ (https://www.reddit.com/r/assassinscreed/comments/3pj17c/so_ive_had_the_game_for_2_days_now_and_it/)
 I haven't read all of this, so I'm unsure if there are spoilers.  Be cautious.
Quote
Just to point out, I'm talking about the PS4 version.
 The sellers here in the middle east are selling it super early for ridiculous prices. Being an AC fan since the days of AC2, I rushed and paid the extra money to play it as soon as possible. (This happened with MGSV: The Phantom Pain and pretty much all big releases).
 I was really surprised by how bad and ''old'' it looked when compared with last year's AC: Unity. Unity sucked, I'll admit that much, but you absolutely can't deny how beautiful it looked. It felt like a painting in motion. Facial animation was amazing and I especially liked the way they animated the hair (-that red head I forgot the name of-'s hair).
 As for mechanics, scaling buildings was pretty fluent and you rarely reached a point where Arno just stopped and couldn't climb or move forward. He was also capable of leaping from a very high building to a shorter, much further one, making the game flow much better than ever. I expected only greatness from Syndicate, even though I haven't followed its news as sincerely as I had hoped (busy college life).
 So it came as a shock to me when I started it up 2 days ago and realized how bad it was. First of all, a sort of disclaimer: I don't care for graphics as much as I do gameplay. But I simply can't ignore how ugly the game looks, especially after being treated to the beauty that was Unity last year. So without further delay, let's begin the criticism. The ''painting in motion'' graphical style of Unity is swapped for a very dull looking world that will instantly remind you of Watch Dogs. But I get it, this is a different, more modern setting, so maybe this was intentional. Moving on.
 Graphics are a serious let down. Granted this is still one of the better looking PS4 games, but when compared to Unity, it feels like such a copout.
 Lip synching is almost non existent, instead characters will just flap their mouths when talking. Light reflects off of faces in a very muddy, pixelated way that makes characters look like plastic. The amazing hair details that were present in Unity are swapped for what looks like plain paper. Where is the graphical fidelity delivered by Unity, a game 1 year older? I know I've probably said the word ''graphics'' a dozen times already, but I can't help but point it out. When you play ANY game, you expect its sequel to improve on its aspects, not scrap them all in favor of cheaper, more productive methods.
 So going into Syndicate expecting something better, or at least rivaling Unity, I was surprised and disappointed to find that the opposite happened. Aside from the graphical downgrade, I also noticed some severe gameplay downgrades too. But before that, a major WARNING to all of you disappointed by Unity's technical problems: Syndicate is a broken mess! Throughout the 10 hours I've put into the game so far, I've experienced these technical issues:
 -In the first hour of gameplay, right after I was put into the open world, I was greeted with a group of a dozen civilians floating in the middle of the air. They disappeared a few seconds later. I didn't think much of it; it's a glitch, it happens.
 -One of the earliest cut scenes broke on me. Without spoiling anything, both Jacob and Evie enter a train, with Jacob carrying a grappling gun. Suddenly both him and Evie disappear, with only the gun remaining, flailing around as dialog continued to play. I had to exit and re-open the game for the cut scene to play right. This happened with 2 cut scenes so far. Note that I'm only 10 hours into the game and I barely scratched the surface. If it's as bad now, imaging how it will be 20 or 30 hours down the road.
 -The game's frame rate is atrocious. Not as bad as Unity's, at least not so far, but it doesn't make it any better.
 -The game froze on me twice. Once when I was in the open world, and another time during a cut scene.
 ---I realize that 2 patches are supposed to come out on day one, 3 days from now, probably to iron out the mess that is Syndicate right now. But even still, both patches amount to a total of 1 GB, so what the hell is that even supposed to fix? It took a multitude of patches, the biggest of which was over 6 GB in size to make Unity playable. So I imagine we'll be stuck with this broken game for quite some time.
 Aside from technical issues, let's delve into the mechanics. The game doesn't flow nearly as good as Unity. For some reason you can't jump from building to building unless they were a few meters close to one another. Running around on roofs you will be annoyed with a run-and-stop-and-run rhythm, because your so called ''assassins'' were probably not taught to jump across long distances. This is really frustrating.
 Putting it in simpler words: -In AC Unity: You're on a roof and there's a building in the distance you wish to reach. You run and jump across roofs, no matter how far or impossible it may seem, in one fast paced series of fluid movements.
 -In AC Syndicate: You're on a roof and there's a building in the distance you wish to reach. You run and reach the end of the roof, expecting your character to fluently jump to the adjacent but far one, but instead he/she stutters and stops. You press the dang R2 button and keep pressing X, but you soon realize that you just can't do far jumps in this depressing game. Instead, you're forced to climb down to the street, move towards your desired building and climb. You see where I'm going with this? It breaks the flow of a game that's supposed to be fast paced.
 Yeah, they introduced the grappling hook as a means to make traveling faster, probably as a last resort because they knew how sloppy and broken the rhythm of the game was. But even that doesn't work properly. You can't aim the hook. You want to grapple it to a building in the distance? Well you better pray to God it doesn't grapple onto irrelevant crud, like the various poles or fences around it. I've put in around 10 hours into the game, and I know it isn't enough to warrant a full review, but it was enough for me to know what I had gotten myself into. Sadly the one feeling I have towards it is pure disappointment.
 Extra notes:
 -I initially liked the concept of having 2, completely switchable characters. It immediately reminded me of GTA5. I expected each character to give me a different feel of gameplay. For example Jacob would be more of a brawler, with slower movements but deadlier attacks. He'll have a different set of weapons and upgrades accessible ONLY by him. On the other hand, Evie would be the stealthier one, with very fast reflexes and high speed parkour, albeit a more fragile body and a smaller health bar. That's what I expected at least. I know, silly me. This is Ubisoft after all. Instead, we got literally the same character under 2 different skins: A male one and a female one. They both play EXACTLY the same. Sure, Evie is labeled as the stealthier one in the story, but in gameplay she plays exactly like Jacob. They even have the exact same set of upgrades and both can wield the exact same weapons. So what is the point of giving us 2 characters if they're not going to utilize the possibilities? It feels like they included Evie as a playable one just to appeal to a larger, female oriented audience. Who knows.
 -The driving aspect is something that I actually like, for some weird reason. I didn't expect it to be this fun.
 -I have to give it to the game: Despite its major shortcomings, so far I'm really digging Jacob and Evie. They have this cool quality to them, which is something I haven't seen in AC since Ezio.
 ----I wasn't planning on posting this so early, but I was too frustrated at the game that I eventually rage quit and rushed over here to post a review/warning.
 If you're a major and loyal fan of the series, like me, then I doubt what I wrote will change your mind about buying it. However, if you're a passer by who enjoys some AC every now and then, this is seriously not the game for you. Go buy AC4, or hell buy Unity. It's fixed by now, it's far, FAR better looking, and the gameplay exceeds the mess we have in Syndicate.
 EDIT: Something I forgot to mention is how massive the world is. This is the biggest AC has ever been, and the attention to architectural detail is astounding. 10 hours in and I can't even begin to fathom how I'll be able to explore the entirety of the map.
 EDIT2: It seems some people are doubting whether or not I have the game. So here are 2 images of the disc, with a piece of paper having my user name and the date, as suggested by a skeptic user. Seriously, what would I gain by spending over 30 minutes typing this review if I never even had the game?https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.n...4b4e96f6e84a4a (https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/v/t1.0-9/10626865_1053875007985898_5721025311054284204_n.jpg?oh=e4be1ac43ee4bd9e87081d77538f8aed&oe=56CBB659&__gda__=1455255648_43776c0e0df098a2394b4e96f6e84a4a)https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.n...ab273093b922cc (https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/10380748_1053875061319226_8471848680822849146_n.jpg?oh=ce1c606ee54ff70244fff693844c9f0e&oe=568DF74C&__gda__=1452281372_e6436b1d16d242ce43ab273093b922cc)
 EDIT 3: I realize I posted this in the wrong place. People are attacking me from all sides. Some even called me out on not being a member of Reddit for long, as if it has ANYTHING to do with playing and reviewing a God damned game. Even after posting pictures of the disc, some still remain skeptic and are asking me to upload videos. All I did was state my opinion and list the experiences I had while playing it. But some of you are so far up Ubisoft's dog that you can't take any sort of criticism. I will refrain from replying to anyone anymore. To those still calling me out, fudge you. To those who supported me and defended me against the multitude of attacks, thank you.

I grew up with an older brother and he was much more into games than I was. Lots of times I'd just watch him play.

It was fun around 2010 when I started really getting into games myself. "Hey neverdies, apparently this game called Mass Effect 2 is great. We should get it!"

His response "Oh yeah I played it at launch. Feel free to boot up the 360 and play it." "what?, we already own it?! Sweet"

Looks like Gamespot is resorting to click bait journalism again. They ran an article about the Dualshockers interview with Yu Suzuki about Shenmue 3. At one point during the interview Nelva, the interviewer, notes that it was surprising that Sony ended up being the company to parade Shenmue 3 on stage and not Microsoft. He pointed to a lot of the social media activity from Xbox executives about the title. He then asks Suzuki if Microsoft had been in contact with him over the past year about making the game for their console. He responded by telling Nelva he'll let him use his imagination. What did Gamespot do? They run this article...

Shenmue 3 Creator Teases Xbox One Plans and Discusses Gameplay Ambitions - GameSpot (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/shenmue-3-creator-teases-xbox-one-plans-and-discus/1100-6431618/)

See what they did? They took Suzuki's ambiguous answer and turned it into an article about him teasing plans for an Xbox One version of the game. Now, ambiguous answers leave a lot of room for speculation. That much goes without saying. There has also never been any guarantee that the title would not eventually land on Xbox One or any other platforms. Unlike Street Fighter 5 where it has been made clear by both Sony and Capcom.

However, room being left open for speculation does not mean it's okay to be irresponsible journalists and create click bait headlines such as this as if he factually made any kind of hint that one could reasonably deduce based on the conversation. Situations like this are exactly the reason why the GamerGate movement happened in the first place. Irresponsible and deceptive practices in video game journalism and the industry. Gamespot has been guilty of such things in the past.

Such as the article they wrote about Overwatch, within a day of its unveiling to an unsuspecting community, as to whether or not it lived up to the hype. How in the world can a game that no one knew about and just announced have anything yet to prove based on day one excitement? Likewise, how can a question that is essentially asking "...why Sony and not Microsoft? Didn't Microsoft contact you?" turn into "When can we expect the Xbox One version?" based on a highly ambiguous answer?

@above: Lol, gaming journalism at its best. To be fair, general journalists do this too
It put me off it even more. Just looks more and more like another generic COD game. I hope I'm proven wrong

I know, I'd love to disagree with this!

Blops 3 beta was bad... just plain bad. I didn't like any of the maps, spawning was terrible, the guns were ok at best and I didn't like any of them too much (what happened to old CODs which made guns I loved? Commando, Galil, AK, Famas, Ak74u in Blops 1! AK, ACR, F2000, TAR-21 in MW2! AK, FAD, P90 in MW3! All these guns and more I just loved to use but I found myself not liking any of the guns in Blops 3, same as AW)

Time to kill is terrible now as well, its way too short. Its just a pure battle of who has better internet now.

God I miss MW2/ Black Ops/ MW3 so fudgy much. Black Ops especially

Ttk is closer to black ops 2 than Aw, it's somewhere in between. The spawn system has always been a problem in Call of duty. Hell, just about every FPS I've played. Not that it's not an issue. It's just been going on so long it's hard to get mad about it any more.

All the guns work well for the game, there's some balance issues that need to be worked out. But I didn't have any problems with them. And just like all past call of duty games you'll switch guns after every balance update just to be on a level playing field. Leaving it hard to really fall in love with any of the guns.  

Actually, all you're complaints against blacks ops 3 seem to be about the franchisee as a whole.  It's just call of duty. And that's how they've all been.

Not at all my complaints are very black ops 3 specific. The spawn camping was a terrible problem in the beta, more so than  Ican ever remember in a cod game. The maps I played were bad and I didn't like them at all, when I love most of the maps in older cods. I disagree about guns, the guns I listed in in my other post I just used all the time no matter how good they were, plainly because I loved using them. I don't get that feeling in COD anymore, I just always feel like I'm using a bad gun and am constantly looking for better. Blops 3 beta was the same, I didn't really like any so I just looked up online which is supposed to be the best and used that.

If they just ported Black Ops 1 over to PS4 instead of releasing a new game I would be 10x happier, that was the perfect COD and its never going to get any better.

yeah good for console sales, not good for gamers lol. well good in a sense that they want to properly finish the game, but sucks that they will have to wait longer.

as for the game its self, i felt it was going to be delayed. Q1 is stacked. Uncharted, The Division, Farcry Primnal, Dues X and Street Fighter. its sales would have been cannibalized by them.

in may it has a bigger spot light to its self, and less competition.

 2016 is 'going to be a very big year for Titanfall', says Respawn - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1131728)

Quote
Quote
"Next year is going to be a very big year for Titanfall", Respawn boss Vince Zampella has said following the announcement that the studio has partnered with Nexon to bring the franchise to mobile. As reported by Venture Beat, "multiple smartphone and tablet games" based on the hit shooter series are currently in development at new studio Particle City. The first, however, will not be a first-person shooter, instead taking the franchise "in a new direction". Titanfall screenshot "We continue to focus on Titanfall," Zampella told the site. "Next year is going to be a very big year for Titanfall. For us, it is exciting to take this universe we created that is so extensible. In my head, there are so many things we can do with it. To be able to partner with Nexon and take this game to a whole new audience is really exciting." Respawn has previously announced plans to partner with Nexon on a free-to-play PC version of Titanfall, although it isn't yet clear when it's due to release. But while Respawn isn't yet prepared to go into details, Zampella could also be hinting at something even bigger for 2016. With Star Wars Battlefront coming next month and a new Battlefield title due to arrive next year, it's possible Respawn could be preparing a new Titanfall game for 2017 - with a reveal likely due next year. Zampella has previously confirmed that Respawn is developing a sequel to Titanfall, and announced that it will be a multiformat release. And Zampella promises that it will be "worth the wait". "I can't say just yet," he replied when asked for an update on Titanfall 2 by Polygon. "I promise that it will be worth the wait." EA has previously confirmed that Titanfall 2 will not go on sale during its current financial year, telling investors that it's "more likely" to release between April 2016 and March 2017.

Titanfall didn't get the love it deserved. Too much backlash for an otherwise amazing FPS. Hopefully TF2 delivers enough content to keep people hooked. I've never stopped playing. I love that he's very confident about what they're going to deliver.

I was looking at the OP for that thread, the Fallout 4 screenshots for ultra, just looked awful.  
I honestly thought it looked worse than Skyrim on PS3.  The grass and the buildings in particular just look like they took a step down.  Which is insane.  

But these look way way nicer.  So maybe there's hope yet.

The textures still look similar to me it's just they chose shots with different lighting.  

And you know what both ps4 and pc shots look absolutely fine.  Fallout 3 ps3 to fallout 4 ps4 is an excellent graphical leap and more than enough.  

I like some pretty graphics but I'm not a graphic joker.  I just don't get all the haters on gaf who were like,  oh I was going to get it but not anymore.  Seriously they prefer graphics over how the game plays.  

It's like someone saying they don't play payday 2 because it's got ps2 HD graphics.  I'm sorry but it's films you should be watching and not playing games.


Like I just read on gaf that Bethesda graphics were one of the only good things their games have left.  that place is infested with pc graphic whores and not gamers.  Thank God the average consumer doesn't give a fudge.

Alan wake devs have said yes to Alan Wake 2. These are the guys making quantum break right?  So it will probably be 4 years at least before Alan Wake 2.

It made sense for them to do QB with Microsoft especially if they predicted X1 would win this gen.  But now it's clear PS4 is dominating and by the time AW2 releases the gap will be monstrous.  

If Sony approach them about making AW2 multiplatform on PS4 aswell as the X1/PC I can't see them not wanting to do it unless MICROSOFT is willing to shell out a shame ton of cash.  

Considering they'll have lost against the PS4 a long time ago and the divisions new found focus on profitability (and spin) I can't see it happening.  

Remedy own the IP and Microsoft only have publishing rights to AW1 because they funded it.  I'm fully expecting this to come to PS4 and it night even sell more on there than on x1

Microsoft pays for exclusivity so Sony can't just fund the port. Remedy would either need to go full PS exclusive, or find a third party publisher.

They could each publish their respective versions.  Sony would be willing to just get the game and if Microsoft want it,  they might have to pay a lot of money to deny the ps4. As they've already lost they might not be willing.

Well I'd guess PS4 is about 29m now so that works with your guess. I'd say XB1 was a bit higher than that at the end of September but I can't argue it when we have no figures to go by. I think it's safe to say about 15m though, meaning PS4 hasn't quite got 2:1. It may achieve that this holiday though, with the price cut. And if not, definitely by the end of March.

Mass Effect was actually great looking with some beautiful scenes. The problem is that their engine can't do water and background objects are static.

CSGO is what cause a lot of people's GPUs to die from the AMD bug though. Has nothing to do with the power/heat that is produced when playing the game - just the fact that a reboot of the PC automatically makes the fan speed default at 20% during manual status.

At least that is what majority of the posts I see are talking about.

CSGO is what cause a lot of people's GPUs to die from the AMD bug though. Has nothing to do with the power/heat that is produced when playing the game - just the fact that a reboot of the PC automatically makes the fan speed default at 20% during manual status.

At least that is what majority of the posts I see are talking about.
You have AMD Crimson and checked the temp/fan of the GPU?
I have an nvidia card.  It acted up since I got it.  Part of the problem is that the HDMI port is garbage.

The design is from the comics, when they re-introduced her back in 2008.  The art itself is from Bruce Timm.  He co-created Batman: The Animated Series.  He was also a background artist for Tiny Toons.

This mod replaces the combat system and all encounters, including out in the wild, with Gwent matches. Deck generation on enemies, deck building on Geralt. Basically The Witcher 3: Yu-Gi-Oh. It's so ridiculous I made a thread.

It was also fairly substantial throughout the first half of last year leading up to E3. After X1 took the holidays in the US the way it did I remember a number of articles written saying the Xbox One was on a comeback. That was even while it lost the first 3 months of 2015. Then in May when the April NPD came out and X1 took that month, by a relatively small amount, pre-E3 articles had headers and subheaders like "Microsoft smells blood" or "Sony should be worried". Meanwhile, X1 was losing its dog globally and here we are watching PS4 regaining the US gap it had over X1 a year ago.

I'd never even heard of the game until the developers of it went on one of the most bizarre meltdowns i've ever seen in the industry(http://abload.de/img/1435094955490zlon4.jpg)(http://abload.de/img/1435095047116rfr9u.jpg)
 But I ended up reading a number of articles on it after that and it sounds like a complete mess made by developers that are absolutely convinced they're making art. The controls are messy and the game is a technically broken. One article pointed out how his PC could run The Witcher 3 just fine while Sunset struggled to run on it.

As for the future, Paris Games Week and the PlayStation Experience event in San Francisco provided an interesting glimpse of what's to come. On the plus side, Rez Infinite may provide the newly christened PlayStation VR with its first must-buy, and it's hard to begrudge a sequel to Ni no Kuni. On the negative, aside from wonderful curios like Wild, there's little that seems genuinely new.

 Because fudge Detriot: Become Human and GTS, one which is a new IP. and fudge robinson the journey, matterfall and boundles. and who cares for the first gameplay demo of gravity rush 2 anyways? and that dreams.. sigh.. nothing new there. ohh driveclub bikes? doesnt count. 

 


 What's Shawn Layden dreaming of this Christmas? He knows that there are real prospects in the future: Horizon: Zero Dawn looks great, although it desperately needs a more memorable name, while No Man's Sky almost cannot fail by this point - it cannot fail to sell, at any rate. Nier promises more goodwill, along with Shenmue and The Last Guardian - and then there's Hideo Kojima, whose announcement of PlayStation exclusivity received exactly the kind of warm reception that failed to materialise for Microsoft's deal with Rise of the Tomb Raider. A sentimental reaction, considering Kojima's history with PlayStation, but perhaps not a fair one.

  

 they literally couldnt find anything negative to say about Horizon so they just took a cheap shot at its name? lol. 

 And my god... thats just an ill informed thing to say. its not at all the same situation. Sony is helping Kojima Bring his game to live. MS was just denying the game releasing on other platforms. 

  

 Some more great hypocrisy. this is from the XB1 article. "it's available at keen prices in attractive bundles and it has a rapidly expanding library of handsome, well-optimised games". yet they use that as a negative point in the PS4 article. "but as Christmas came around, the third parties were left bearing the brunt. Star Wars and Call of Duty are Sony's big hopes for the end of 2015 - although presumably the real hope is that this insane momentum driving sales simply keeps going." Those CoD and SW bundles at 350$ (and at times 299$ for the SW bundle) apperantly dont qualify as "being available at keen prices in attractive bundles"

  

 then they go and say PS+ games = bad. XBLG games = Good!

 You had the free Games With Gold, which caught and then arguably surpassed PlayStation Plus as a subscription sweetener with a vastly improved line-up where intriguing indies like Massive Chalice rubbed shoulders with well-timed chances to catch up with recent Metal Gear Solid and Tomb Raider games.

  

 PlayStation Plus might be a potential problem. Sure, free games have provided an enormous incentive for audiences to give Sony a monthly payment, but they've also neatly disincentivised spending money elsewhere on the store. Why take a punt on a game when you'll only kick yourself if you get it for free a month later? How much longer is the indie goodwill going to survive in this climate?

  

 Massive Chalice is the best line up ever. Rocket League? fudge that game. its fantastic how much shame they managed to spin.

  

 then they go on and say this.

 "You had tempting downloads like the beautiful indie platformer Ori and the Blind Forest, or the clever film tie-in Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious"

 Driveclub bikes doesnt count apperantly, neither does Bloodborne the old hunters. they use Forza's DLC to justify XB1's barren first half of the year. but dont use old hunters or driveclub bikes for PS4. lol.

  

 i mean dang, im sure i could actually find more fanboyism in those two articles, but this is more than enough. i didnt even read the two articles fully.

You really have to wonder if Microsoft has opted for its last resort and taken to paying websites to spin things in their favor. The blatant hypocrisy in there should be an embarrassment.

I had a strange dream.

I was pitching my next game to a bunch of journalists, and ended by saying "the best part? It releases next week!" So then naturally the journalists want some hands on time with the game, so I schedualed milbob and jimminy jim jim to come over to my house for a demo.

Then it got weird. I realised I was still years away from release and had nothing to show. instead I was plugging usb cords into crystals trying to charge them. Also jimminy jim jim and milbob were my across the street neighbors so I could see them walking toward my door. My mum stalled for me and gave them bisquits.

I then explained that the crystals weren't charged enough so we couldn't do the demo today. They were understanding and we just hung out for a bit.

well they are gonna show off Titanfall 2, Mass Effect and Battlefield 5, so it should be a decent show. and its probably to get more spot light for their games.

since its a week earlier, we will most likely see the games they have on show at the event. with new trailers/gameplay shown at MS and Sony's E3 confrences for the big games.

According to the developer of Ori and the Blind Forest, Nintendo has released no dev kits for the NX. Basically says that if Nintendo plans on launching it this year, the console will have pretty much no third party support.

I played in the Alpha. Was so much fun. Very fast paced and nothing about it felt cheap. If you died, you never felt like you were screwed. You accepted it. Like, the very fact you lived any good length of time felt more like you just kept getting lucky dice rolls and everyone else was rolling the same dice. Plus, few things were as satisfying as watching someone instantly explode from a railgun shot. I really wish I could have saved some videos for you guys but sharing wasn't allowed under the NDA.

did you play on PC or PS4?

im not a doom fan, havent really ever played a doom, or an ID game for that matter. but this one just seems hell of a lot of fun, and the multiplayer seems crazy, and i love that you dont die from just 2 bullets, it seems as far away from a CoD clone as possible at this point.

the single player seems pretty old school, which is something i really like as well.

Played it on PS4. It looked really good and the framerate was solid. Pretty sure it was 60fps. I was impressed.

Yeah, the multiplayer in this is really fun. It honestly has that old school feel just like its single player. It feels like you're playing a game. Not a competition. Not a simulation. Just playing a game, which is very refreshing. Getting kills is so satisfying. Watching someone explode into chunks never gets old and neither do the melee kill animations.

Another thing is that you know that someone who sniped you pulled it off because they're good. Not because they're cheap and used aiming glitches or kept themselves out of danger and took shots at you from forever away. These guys have to react in mere moments to people coming around a corner while they're usually wide open to be shot themselves.

Doom's multiplayer is really a back-to-basics approach.

Played it on PS4. It looked really good and the framerate was solid. Pretty sure it was 60fps. I was impressed.

Yeah, the multiplayer in this is really fun. It honestly has that old school feel just like its single player. It feels like you're playing a game. Not a competition. Not a simulation. Just playing a game, which is very refreshing. Getting kills is so satisfying. Watching someone explode into chunks never gets old and neither do the melee kill animations.

Another thing is that you know that someone who sniped you pulled it off because they're good. Not because they're cheap and used aiming glitches or kept themselves out of danger and took shots at you from forever away. These guys have to react in mere moments to people coming around a corner while they're usually wide open to be shot themselves.

Doom's multiplayer is really a back-to-basics approach.
im starting to realize that i like the back to basics approach more. dont get me wrong, i can enjoy a game having lots of perks and such, but i feel it takes away from the skill factor. the "basic" rocket league approach is fantastic, because its purely about skill. my favorite online shooter was KZ2, and it didnt rely heavily on perks and such, it was all about skill.

my feeling is, give us some perks and such, but dont over complicate it, make the gameplay the main factor in winning or losing, not what perks i have and what score streaks or what ever.

and doom seems super interesting, im watching a lot of multiplayer gameplay, and i was impressed by the single player gameplay back during E3 last year. so it seems i just might end up picking this one up. would be my first doom game

i been playing non stop, this is by far the best multiplayer i played in years, i will get this game for sure. its a shame this is coming out 3 days after Uncharted, because while i really liked Uncharted's multiplayer from the Beta, Doom just baby slaps it. and the beta is seriously making me consider buying it over Uncharted.

Honestly, that might be a good idea.

U4's campaign will be the exact same at launch or in a year, while multiplayer is always evolving/dying.

I played some more last night with friends. So much fun. I rarely put that kind of time into a game in one sitting anymore. Progression systems are necessary for FPS games to survive these days. It gives you something to work towards beyond simply winning the match. As far as taunts go, people need to get over it. This offense culture battleship is out of control. Whining about their feelings being hurt because someone they don't know splattered them in a video game and made their digital avatar dance to it. Either get better and do it right back to them or laugh about it. Getting butthurt doesn't change anything. Besides, if you're that sensitive to something like that, just put yourself in a padded room. Life is a lot more harsh than that.

I see no problem at all with loadouts. Especially since you can have custom loadouts pretty early on. You go into the match with two guns and a piece of equipment. Don't like how that's working out for you? Switch your dang loadout the next time you die. These matches only last 10 minutes. Chances are, you're going to die numerous times. If you aren't, then why the hell are you complaining? It sounds like these people wanted just basic weapons for everyone to start and then you pick up the other weapons during the match. Like Halo or some shame. Sorry, but there are already loads of people camping the spawn points for demon runes, power ups, and power weapons. Would be super fudgy annoying if you never got to have a vortex rifle, lightning gun, or rocket launcher because some other jackhole always grabbed it when it spawned.

i swear if there were no load outs, progression and taunts, people would have been barking that "doom needs to get in with the times" and have the "industry standards" that other shooters have. i dont get the problem with taunts... people are complaining they are "distracting"... seriously? i only seen taunts just two times during games, and i played roughly 7 hours of the beta, maybe more. and even then, its awesome because they are a still target.

what is annoying is that people arent saying its a bad game, they arent saying it isnt fun, reality is that its a really well made and fun multiplayer, they are barking because its not a flat out arena shooter, and has some current standards like loud outs.

okay this looks really good actually. its an RPG where you can make your own choices. i really hope its in a third person view and not an up/down like diablo perspective.

i am not reading much details of the story, because i like to explore that myself, but the game is giving me some serious bloodborne vibes, in a fantastic way.




Vampyr is an action RPG with tight, visceral combat mechanics, exploration, and investigation - you'll have to collect many clues, and talk to many people as you prowl the streets of London.

VYR_AR1511_0000_Hospitalv2

With the use of vampiric powers - as you'd expect! - and authentic 'make-shift' weapons, such as a saw (our protagonist is a surgeon, after all!) you'll be fighting both mythical terrors and human foes.

You'll also be able to make use of different ranged weapons, and there's more to the combat, but we're not ready to reveal that yet.

One of the most interesting things is that everyone you meet in Vampyr could be a target, if you want. But each kill will have consequences on the fragile streets of London. You'll both see those consequences, and feel them. They'll have an effect on the story, often immediately, and in the long-run. Vampires have to eat, after-all. But as the saying goes, 'you are what you eat' - at least, in Reid's mind. He's a very human vampire… at least, he hasn't forgotten where he came from. Do not think that makes him 'good', though. You'll see.

i have seen pre-alpha of screen footage, it seems like they are trying to make it fight like bloodborne, it was still very rough, but it might work out for them. the game has a lot of potential, they dont need the best gameplay in a game like this, just something that is engaging a bit and keeps you engrossed in the story and world.

It would be cool if a game was made where only a select few could play it. Like they make it a free game, but only random steam names are allowed in kinda like how Rust uses steam names for character generation.

You could get pretty popular because people couldn't play your game even if they wanted.

I used to play this game called Evony.

Was a lot of fun.  I heard about it from a family member.

I thought the game was a lot of fun.  You build houses and other things, manage resources, start wars with other players.  But other sites had very weird advertisements for it.

The game itself is pretty decent if you like RTS games.  I personally would love to make a game like it, but improve on some things.  


The ads are ridiculous though.  There's absolutely no correlation between the ads and the game.  It makes as much sense as advertising VizionEck with lots of lady models.
If the ad convinced someone to buy VizionEck, they'd play the game wondering what happened.

On a different note.  
I think RTS games are tricky.  

I feel bothered by games that have an ending.  
Age of Empires for example.  I love spending hours building up my civilization.  Even setting up friendly games where everyone is on the same team just so I can basically play it as a city builder.  And I enjoy building huge armies to attack and stuff like that.  
But at the end of it, you win and basically have to restart your city building.  It feels kind of lame, because you work to put in all this progress, just to have to redo it again for the next round.

On the other hand, I feel bothered by games that don't have an ending.  
Okay, now I'm waiting 6 hours for the next upgrade...  That's fun....

Each match is ~15 hours at standard pace so you rarely finish the game feeling like you just finished setting up your empire.

Maps can get really large too, with 12 players and 24 citystate players.

And it's still going to be the biggest game of the year...(unless Rockstar shocks the world and announces RDR2 for 2016), at this point all these dislikes are probably helped by a lot of brigading from the Battlefield community, which seems to have collectively decided that a 1 minute non-gameplay trailer is enough to decide that Battlefield has once again apparently "killed" Cod.

Yeah, but that falls under Blizzard's banner.  Even then, if WoW wasn't drying up, they wouldn't have made Overwatch.
They didn't make Overwatch because of anything happening with WoW. Overwatch came from a failed attempt at a second MMO and that MMO began development long before WoW had a serious decline in subscriptions. Titan was a project they came up with because they wanted to. Not because they felt like they needed to. What Titan became, Overwatch, was announced prior to the massive sub loss WoW suffered because its most recent expansion, Warlords of Draenor, ended up a total bust. They didn't want everything they worked on to go to waste and they decided to try and make a hero shooter using some of the characters and concepts from Titan.

Even at its current user rate, WoW greatly exceeds most, if not all, other MMOs. Heroes of the Storm was their middle finger to Valve for taking the DOTA name and making a MOBA and Hearthstone was a passion project that exploded. None of these newer games are needed, especially not Overwatch. Blizzard brings in about 70 to 80 million a month just on current WoW subscriptions. Hearthstone has several tens of millions of users pumping money into Blizzard buying card packs and expansions for a game that takes very little development effort. Blizzard makes so much money on just those two games alone that they wouldn't have to make anything else. They're set.

And it's still going to be the biggest game of the year...(unless Rockstar shocks the world and announces RDR2 for 2016), at this point all these dislikes are probably helped by a lot of brigading from the Battlefield community, which seems to have collectively decided that a 1 minute non-gameplay trailer is enough to decide that Battlefield has once again apparently "killed" Cod.
i am one of those people who say the BF trailer shimed all over the Cod one. but no way... no way is BF gonna kill "CoD". in fact all this CoD vs BF talk is just gonna benefit CoD. BF will sell shame loads, if its any good.

but still, doesnt mean we cant enjoy awesome shame like this

its really not the journalists fault here. after all its very clear they have no interest in quality journalism, they just are desperate for hits/money. and when you have people gobbling up what ever this guy has to say, well then of course they are gonna keep making articles about it, even if he says fudgy nothing. its really the fanbases fault here

Shouldn't Ori and the Blind Forest not be in that list? I hardly find the definitive edition a justified enough reason to consider it a 2016 game.
Title: Re: The Gaming Community Thread! Multiplats and the like are welcome.
Post by: Raven on May 22, 2016, 05:46 PM
E3 could be a game changer? You're not going to turn around a shaming year like 2016 has already been for Xbox by making announcements of games that aren't here yet when right now the competition already has close to 50 games you don't have, 28 of which are at least currently exclusive to that platform, with none of your own actual exclusives. Unless you want me to believe that by E3 we'll somehow magically know that the games coming later in the year will be any good. If you're nurturing any hope that its total lineup will outpace the competition in the quantity department this year, I'd go ahead and drown that thing right now.

The best Xbox game by far is a re-release of an indie-style game that came out last year, which had some stuff added to it and given a retail package. Which is also available on PC. Looking ahead, we already know this Summer is loaded with games coming as exclusive or console exclusive to PS4, with some of those console exclusives having PC versions that won't come until later. That's just from now until September. We know GT Sport is coming in November and The Last Guardian is rumored to be an October release. Those will sit alongside many other games that are coming for PS4 from developers who, for one reason or another, are shunning Xbox. Then we have PSVR coming which opens up a whole new library of games for those who will shell out the cash for it.

If you're the kind of Xbox fan who prided themselves on their purchase because you believed you were going to have the best and most numerous options for console gaming available, this is a terrible time to be you. This generation isn't likely to get any better. Not with multiple project cancellations, studio closures, lack of third party exclusivity deals, and a software lineup that has been a disappointment for two and a half years and counting. If you have even a decent PC with Windows 10, there is virtually no reason to own an Xbox One thanks to the direction Microsoft is taking the Xbox division. I would even say at this point that even if you don't have a decent PC, I still wouldn't recommend an Xbox One based on its current library and the future isn't looking bright enough at all to change that.

The XB1 library overlapping too much with PC is not the only problem. It's also lacking on multiple genres. The fighting genre is one of them. While Killer Instinct is doing great, it's only one game. Mortal Kombat X and Dead or Alive 5: Last Round are also available on the PS4 and PC. Street Fighter V, while it didn't sell all that well, is only on PS4 and PC. Over the next months, the PS4 will be getting Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator and The King of Fighters XIV. Tekken is rumored to be skipping the XB1.

It is even worse when it comes to JRPGs. The XB1 is the absolute worst console for this genre. The only JRPGs I can think off the top of my head are FF Type-0 and Stranger in the Sword City. The former is available on the PS4/PC and the PS4 version outsold the XB1 by a 4 to 1 ratio in the US. Stranger in the Sword City is digital-only on the XB1, but you can get it physically on the Vita. Not only does the XB1 lack JRPGs even when counting multiplats, but the gap between them is large. Type-0 came out in March 17, 2015. Stranger in the Sword City came out in March 22, 2016. The next JRPG the XB1 is getting is FFXV, which doesn't come out until September 30. This is not sufficient enough to retain the JRPG fanbase. In fact, it's absolutely pathetic.

Compare that to what the PS4 has gotten/will be getting.

While the vast majority of the JRPGs I've listed are niche, there is enough to go around throughout 2015 and 2016. That helps retain and perhaps, even grow the JRPG fanbase on the PS4.

It's the only one confirmed for this year. Likely anything they announce at E3 will have a PC version. Forza 6 just got a PC beta and Halo 5's Forge is getting a PC release which is awfully dang close to confirming a PC version of the actual game. The head of The Coalition did entertain the idea of a PC version of Gears 4 and the Gears 1 remaster already got a PC release.

Hell, you even missed some on that list. Like World of Final Fantasy which is confirmed console exclusive to PS4, handheld exclusive to Vita, with a possible PC version later. Nioh could possibly release this year as well. Though whether that qualifies as JRPG is debatable. Like Bloodborne.

Doom is the best shooter multiplayer i played this gen, easily. Me and my brother already have over 24 hours clocked in, and we aint slowing down. (We had 7 hours in the beta as well)

The ratio is like 1.63 so far, roughly 130 "5 kill streak" badges, maybe 12 "10 kill streak", and one "15 +20" kill streak badges. Roughly 58 demons slayn, roughly 30 "longest kill streak" and "best k/d" ratio .

I thought Pezus meant he was already past the kaer morhen missions. "the battle at the Witchers' keep"

so apparently i bought the Witcher 3's expansion pass on the wrong region. because apparently when your disk says "All" on the region on the box, it doesnt mean all. it means region fudgy 1.

how the fudge am i supposed to know which region the game is if the box says its "All". how the hell am i supposed to know which region to buy my DLC from?

this is infuriating, i bought the DLC, i payed money for it, i am supposed to be able to fudgy play it. Sony cant come up with a system where they match the DLC with the Disk regardless of region? this is battleship, they cant at least warn me before my purchase that "hey, the dlc you are buying wont match the game thats installed on your PS4".

Hopefully sony support can transfer the DLC to the correct region.

VizionEck is going to blow your mind.

I'm doing so many awesome things with it. I don't think any game before has had a true conlang, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. It's not just about making a hard puzzle game, but making puzzles that feel worthy of your time and investigation.

Man can I not wait to release the game and freely discuss things. It may be niche but this stuff is cool! The research I've done for this game has taught me so freaking much. IE did you know that dice originated from knuckle bones?

I know lots of these concepts are nich, but it's crazy how VizionEck has evolved into the dream game I never knew I wanted. Back at the start it was just a means to an end. Back when I was becoming an indie dev, I designed 4ish games around a unique game mechanic. Two were AAA quality and 2 were B quality for production costs, so I decided to put them on the back burner and not spend years on my first game (lol). I instead decided to make a quick and free game on PC. This way my studio had a game to our name and I could attract other devs to help with the big project.

VizionEck started out as a "1 month game." I was making super quick progress and even kept a dev blog on the chertz. However I was stupid and kinda felt the game had more potential. I tweeted Shahid at playstation and he helped get me in contact with the US folks to register as an indie dev. Haha it all started through twitter.

On August 21st I regestered VizionEck LLC with the gov so that I could progress with dev sign up. The paperwork took a long time going back and forth so during this I just added feature and feature to the game. I added multiplayer even though I don't care about multiplayer games.

Wasn't until a year ago when I started cutting content that VizionEck started to feel great for me. I've always thought the game would be great, but it lacked soul and passion. Well it had passion, just not for the game mechanics.


I've also stopped caring abouf being unique. If a game does something good, I'll shamelessy copy that. No regrets. Players (and I) just want a great game regardless of how many shoulders it's built on.


For fun I've been using the count to a million thread to jusge my game. I want to have more sales than it, so I need to think about if delays are worth it.

But fudge money. Like seriously. I hope to make a profit so I can keep making games, but this has become my dreM. I'll be happy and proud of the game regardless of sales or reviews. But please buy it.

Its really great that you love your game, it means that a lot of people will like it and you can be proud whatever it sells.

You know that we'll all buy it! If I end up liking it then bravo because I have a narrow taste in games ;D

A lot of open world games just end up being a collection of linear games.  

Missions are very often encapsulated in such a way that it doesnt really end up mattering order wise.  

Characters don't really have any connections to others.

im roughly 14 hours in. its an interesting game. ill certainly play ME3. and then id be ready for ME Andromeda.

Also this: "Unlimited Storage"

I kind of love the idea, but at the same time it's really confusing what they are really trying to go for.  

What it's advertising can't really work well right now.  
What it realistically is, is a standard console with an API that handles procedural generation, and a lot of false promises.

Don't think this will be an actual game, but some of the Lumberyard images look amazing.  
Also gives a bit of a bloodborne vibe.

Has Amazon done any customization on the graphics or is identical to standard Cryengine?

They've added some features and stuff, but I think it's pretty much identical aside from those few things.  

The codebase is still solidly CryEngine.
The biggest thing the update notes have is VR support along with some things that go with that.

UI is pretty much the same.  (Cryengine on top, Lumberyard on bottom.)


On a different note, I really wonder if Amazon is going to make games out of these.

 Hyper Light Drifter Wii U and Vita Ports Cancelled | Dev Health and Engine Concerns - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1275292)

Quote
(http://theawesomer.com/photos/2013/09/hyper_light_drifter_t.jpg) Just came through on the kickstarter update (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1661802484/hyper-light-drifter/posts/1675572?ref=backer_project_update). Native ports were not an option for Vita/Wii U so Hyper Light Drifter would have had to been recreated from scratch in a new engine. Doing that and keeping the main game updated was going to be too much work and was negatively impacting the developer health.  Video breaks it down very well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFvz...ature=youtu.be (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFvzI0xGgTg&feature=youtu.be)

So I was playing through the first Resident Evil Revelations, to test out my Skullcanyon, and I'll say the game was made by the Dino Crisis devs.  The more I get into it, the more its turning into Dino Crisis.  This one stage when you're running through a building to get to a helicopter, the enemies were bipedal dinosaurs.  On another note, Revelations 2 feels closer to RE.

That's one thing about Nintendo I never liked even back when I could count myself as somewhat of a fan. The fact that support for their console dries up almost instantly upon a new one arriving. Be it their fault or not, it just always seems to happen that way. Rarely do you get any additional games after the new console has arrived and usually those games are garbage. Meanwhile, Microsoft and Sony would push for at least 2 or 3 more years of support. Sony usually going above and beyond. Let's be honest, though. I think Nintendo fans were already used to not having any Wii U games. The console's lineup died... what... two years ago for the most part?

Yeah the graphics definitely look like they took a hit. I'm mostly wondering if it'll be any good, last march they "chose to reacquire the rights to Rime" which according to rumours actually meant that Sony was fed up with them and took the dev kits away because they simply didn't have a game. And now they are suddenly ready to release this 14 months later and on 3 new platforms (on of which they probably haven't had a dev kit for for long at all) as well?

I hope this is good but I'm very skeptical still.

i Dont think it will be delayed now that they have given a release date thats rather close. but i can understand why some people might think so, we barely seen anything of the game, and its supposedly huge. compared to Horizon, we seem very very little of Mass Effect, and they are just releasing a month apart, and are both RPG with a lot of content.



Spoiler for Hidden:
however i am really really hyped for ME: Andromeda. i do wonder if they can top the story in the previous games. the Reapers were such a formidable foe, and one that couldnt be beaten by just humanity, even all the galaxy couldnt beat it, it needed many cycles to keep working on a device to be able to stop them. they were a fantastic enemy/villan. i loved that sense of a small glimmer of hope in ME3, trying to beat incredible odds, and knowing their will be losses on the way, no way around it. the scale and intensity of the matter. it wasnt just some boss you knew you were going to beat. the Reapers were fudgy stronger than you, and you dang sure knew it. i loved the sense of scale in the ME universe, the stories and lore. my favorite part was the genophage, that was SO interesting, and every time i had the chance in dialogue options i would ask about it.

i guess so. im excited to see multiplayer, but i am also really worried, i dont want this to have gameplay elements hidden behind microtransactions. im OK with microtransactions if they are for cosmetic items, ideally gameplay DLC would be free as a result, other wise it would feel like the milking is too much. but going on to multiplayer, i think they can have something pretty fun. i didnt play ME3's multiplayer as i played ME3 just a few months ago.

The game would have been a much better experience had it been a 40 hour game with a more coherent story as the story missions are great. The open world environments are very pretty but generally lifeless just filled with enemies and a few forts here and there but the main thing that made me gave up was the combat. After 60+ hours it is mundane and you honestly feel like you are playing something like Sacred instead of an action RPG.Your attacks don't have impact and more flashy than impacting. Also gating missions behind points rewarded through side missions and filler content is not good and my pet hate this gen. Shadow of Mordor and now this. Ugh, I am seriously concerned for Andromeda now which is not good. Thankfully the combat in Andromeda looks miles better and far more engaging.

Dragon Age Inquisition isn't an action RPG though. I love the combat in DA:I to be honest. Its so much better than the majority of similar open world RPGs out there. I find it so much more fun than Skyrim or The Witcher 3 or shadow of mordor.

Skyrim's combat looks hot garbage tbh. I have briefly touched the witcher 3 so I cannot say but shadow of Mordor has way better combat. I am going to go back to it and try and complete it as I have gone so far I might as well do it.

Mordor's combat is actually all show.  I watched a video on it, it sucks.  

I would actually put skyrim above it.  :P

Skyrim is very unpolished combat wise.  
But Shadow of Mordor's combat is actually described pretty well by Bananaman's description of Batman...  



Don't get me wrong, I actually enjoyed Shadow of Mordor's combat....  
But The Witcher 3 is not competition for it.

The Witcher 3 is just SO good. IMO its better than bloodborne, but BB is really good.

First hour is certainly slow. But it keeps getting better the more along you go. The gameplay is simply superb. And the level design just keeps getting better and better. I'd highly recommend you continue. Ohh.. and dem weapons.. most awesome weapons in an FPS

In terms of "play anywhere". Let's say I have a rig and a laptop. The laptop isn't powerful enough to run RE7 well. However, if Steam can do PC-to-PC streaming, I can at least stream the game to the laptop from the rig.

That just depends on how far to one side or the other you are. In the case of that video, I wholly agree with Rags. Feminism has become a poison and those who drink it every day find themselves looking for things to change that don't need it in the name of an ideal of equality they don't really believe in or refuse to see how it doesn't/shouldn't apply to everything.

That's why I added the online part. These people (on both sides, including as it seems that Rags dude) don't live in the real world. People that can't stop crying about the patriarchy and mysoginy etc. all day and see it in everything are insane nutcases and people that take these nutcases and think they represent the entirety of feminism and then feel inclined to make videos about how feminists all more or less want to chop white mens dicks off are morons as well. Not once in the real world have I ever met someone that complained about the patriarchy or mansplaining or any of that battleship to me, but if you were to believe the internet, then those people would have to be everywhere.

It's kinda like the democrat and conservative thing, according to the internet all conservatives are basically nazis and all democrats are basically tumblr feminists, because the moderate majority has long since been drowned out and all that's left are the crazy extremists shouting at each other.

There's also a large difference between the feminists and anti-feminists when it comes to having an open discussion (e.g. not having YouTube ratings and comments disabled).

As Aura said, what feminism was and what it's been turning into are two different things. And, as Rags pointed out, egalitarianism makes feminism pointless if what you're honestly aiming for is equality between the genders/sexes. Thus feminism really has no place but to be a movement that empowers females at the expense of males and attempts to create an uneven situation to their benefit.

That or most people simply aren't as pedantic when it comes to their terminology and just stick to the word that they've come to know to stand for the movement of gender equality.

my daughter is only 6 months old and the ways people treat her are already staggeringly different than my son.  the criticisms based on her looks that my son never received.  the toys people gift that are always pink.  

i see in my work the most productive member of my team was a women and she also make the least money.  the least productive is a man and he makes the most.  the women (foolishly) believes in merit based pay and the man is loud, obnoxious, but most importantly demanding.   ...and because he is demanding he has demanded his way to higher pay while the women waited for recognition that never came.

worst yet, she was sexually assaulted at work by one of my coworkers who was "just being funny".  i watched at our local leadership and remote HR do everything in their power to not let it become an "incident".  i watched her try and work uncomfortably by avoiding direct contact with the guy who touched her.  i watched her quit over the incident.  i now i'm watching the guy who assaulted her reap i the benefits of her departure as takes over her important responsibilities while delegating out the ones he didn't want.

It's not pedantic to point out that this particular brand of feminism that has grown off of what feminism was breaks with the ideals. That at this point it might just be better to run with "egalitarian" than "feminist" because of the increasingly negative connotation thanks to those taking feminism in directions it was never meant for. It helps that egalitarianism covers a wider range than what feminism does.

First of all, leave your little insults at the door. I believe you've already been warned. To the point, no one here lacks empathy to the struggles of women. I have a sister, a mother, and plenty of female friends. I understand quite well the struggles as I'm sure virtually everyone here does. What I refuse to empathize with is the brand of feminism that seeks to subvert everything around it to create one giant safe space.

It's more of 'actions speak louder than words'. 3rd wave feminists like to bring up the dictionary definition of feminism, but their actions absolutely contradict that.

A very good example of how egalitarians and feminists act differently is The Amazing Atheist's fund raiser (https://www.crowdrise.com/extraordinary-people-daring-to-actually-help-women-) for helping women in 3rd world countries vs Anita Sarkeesian asking for $200,000 for so-called 'post-production' of her Ordinary Women videos that she already finished.

He doesn't point anything like that out though, instead he says "being a feminist is a problem, isn't it?" and "feminism corrupts everything it touches". He seems completely convinced of this idea that these lunatics represent what feminism today is, but there's still a huge difference the tumblr "activist" and what the real world considers a normal feminist.

Seriously all these people that use dumb phrases like patriarchy, mansplaining, cis, SJWs, feminazis etc. just need to get away from the internet more, cause that shame is clearly corrupting their perception of what feminism is for most people that identify as feminist.

I will agree that he really should clarify whether he's talking about feminism in general or third wave feminism that is rampant online, in certain college campuses, and maybe a couple cities. Based on his previous videos and the kind of person he has come off to me as, I'm inclined to believe the latter. I don't think he believes that all feminists are like the ones he's pointing out in this video. Though I think his insistence on calling yourself egalitarian instead of feminist is his way of saying that the moderate feminists should separate themselves from the radicals by doing so. I just think he's very passionate about his hobby and tries to combat the battleship surrounding it. Though obviously I can't speak for him. Still, I agree with his points for the most part.

EA "Committed" to the Relationship With Respawn Despite Lower than Expected Titanfall 2 Sales (http://www.dualshockers.com/2017/01/31/ea-committed-relationship-respawn-despite-lower-expected-titanfall-2-sales/)

Well, yeah. You probably should. For one, you iced them by releasing Titanfall 2 in the same dang timeframe as Battlefield and Call of Duty. The post-release engagement of the first game should have been a big clue that this franchise currently cannot hang with the big boys. It needs its own space to breathe. You effectively smothered it.

Also, of course you're going to stick with them for now. You're balls deep in a Star Wars project with them. You KNOW the chances of that NOT making money are fudgy slim. Jesus EA, don't try so hard to sound like the good guys.

Is it just me or The Clockwork Mansion in dishonored 2 a freaking awesome level, but absolutely horrible in enemy placement and design.  I can barely go around anywhere without there being 3-4 enemy's plus a couple clockwork soldiers around especially when I have to carry somebody out of the place.  It's just super annoying.  Plus I'm trying to do low chaos and just fudgy everybody up is not how I want to play it this play through. It just seems impossible to go through without killing anybody.  Maybe I just iced up at the beginning of the mission by letting jindosh see who I was.  It's making me not want to finish the game.

I think Killer Instinct is done for in the competitive scene. It missed being the 9th game for EVO by quite a margin. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Pokken Tournament blew it out of the water in donation totals and number of donors. What was surprising was the significant lack of donations for Mortal Kombat X. And once again, Smash Bros gets two entries into EVO between Melee and Wii U. Personally, I think it's shaming that one franchise is taking two slots and that Smash Bros Melee continues to be a part of EVO.

Well Season 3 released last year but they're adding onto it again. They just added a new character recently and they have plans for at least 3 more. So the game still has content coming for it. It's not like it's no longer being supported or there was some big gap.

Post by: Raven on Feb 13, 2017, 02:06 AM

They're making more content for the existing game and it looks like that's going to be stretched out for the better part of this year and there's been no indication of a sequel. Killer Instinct's place in the competitive scene has nothing to do with whether or not the company is supporting it or making a sequel. It has everything to do with the competitive players. A game doesn't drop out of EVO's lineup because of what the company that made it is doing. If that was the case Marvel vs Capcom would have been out a long time ago and Smash Bros wouldn't have two games from the same franchise in the lineup constantly.

Fighting games don't get actual sequels nearly as often as other genres do. Mostly because it's very difficult to be commercially successful and the games that stick in the competitive scene are usually around for years. Even if a Killer Instinct sequel were to come out soon, which would make it silly that they're creating new characters for the existing game, there's no guarantee it would even make the EVO lineup and end up with good competitive support. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 beat it for the 9th player choice slot with over 11 times more donation money and nearly 10 times more backers. That game has been around for ages. The FGC just doesn't have enough people that play at the pro level to support more than 10 games at a time. From what I heard, a lot of former KI pros have moved on to SF5 and KOF 14.

Killer Instinct never became a main stage type of game and it fizzled out after only 3 years. I'm actually a little upset about it because I'm a fan of the franchise and I was hoping it would get a legit sequel. Knowing Microsoft and how they've been with their games, they're not going to pony up the dough for one when the first game is being abandoned after what is a short time in the FGC and didn't succeed in becoming a pillar franchise for their brand.

Ubisoft are seriously being stupid with For Honors review's. not giving out reviewers copies early and letting them review and play the game at release like everybody else will result in a rushed reviews, each one trying to release a review as fast as possible so they can get more hits.

this game isnt a typical game, it has a rather new style of gameplay, and it takes time to learn it and actually get good at it. if reviews are rushed and they just play a few multiplayer games to try and judge the game, chances are they arent actually giving the game the shot it deserves and the time needed to actually learn the game well. which might end up in lower scored reviews.

Kerbal space program

Oh gosh, I finally completed a mission from Dres. Without cheats, I sent three astronauts to the surface and safely brought them back. This is by far my biggest accomplishment in the game. I'm in career mode.


To do this, I first had a space station orbiting Kerbin that acted as a fuel depot. My craft was a lander with a nuclear engine and a orange fuel tank docked in front of it. I go the craft in orbit around Kerbin, refueled at my space station, and then went off to Dres. Once I got there, I realised I forgot to put any data transmitters on the craft. Oops.

Circularized into a low orbit around the planet but had hardly any fuel left. My lander's tank was full but the orange tank was almost empty. Either way, I decoupled and dropped down to the planet. I had to reload a quick save over and over since my fuel margin was so low.

On the surface my three kerbals planted flags and did some science and then went back into the lander. I timed it well and rendezvoused with the tanker still in orbit, with just a fraction of the lander's fuel remaining.

Once in orbit, I realised I didn't technically need to bring the orange tank back with me. Some rough calculations without it showed I'd have just enough fuel left to get back to Kerbin. I tried plotting the maneuver myself but KSP glitched out and wouldn't show me the closest approach, so I had to install mechjeb for that.

Transferred as much fuel to the lander as I could, locked that fuel tank, and started my engine. After a few seconds the orange tanker ran out of fuel so I decoupled it and continued the burn. With a slight course correction in route, I was on target for a perfect intercept with Kerbin!


But then once I got there, I had major problems. I was coming in way too hot and would explode instantly when I hit the atmosphere. Plus I forgot to put a heat shield on the lander anyway. So after a lot of testing I realised it was impossible to do an aerocapture. Instead I came up with the plan of using another spaceship to catch the lander and slow it down.

My space station uses standardized fuel tank rockets that are reusable. At the time the station had three docked and two were 100% full. I decoupled the full ones and docked them together, then disabled the engine on the opposite one. Matched planes with the incoming lander and got into the largest elliptical orbit the game would let me. I also time synced the orbit to hit periapsis right before the lander hit it. I dropped off the empty fuel tank, matched speeds with the lander, and met up with it as it was flying away from Kerbal at 5,000 meters per second.

It wasn't until this point that I realised my "catching" craft didn't have anywhere close to enough delta v left to stop it. So I loaded up an old save and plotted a different transfer from Dres to kerbin. It used 99% of my fuel but shaved about 1,000 m/s off my speed at intercept. So then I repeated all the previous steps and caught it. Lowered its speed enough to get into an elliptical orbit around Kerbin. I really lucked out at this time and ended up having a naturally occurring gravity break with the Mun. I also had just enough fuel to get into a circular low Kerbin orbit. I tried landing but didn't have anywhere near enough fuel, so I had to dock with my space station again. This worked out great since I could drop off the science.

Then with a fully fueled lander I decoupled and dropped down into the atmosphere. It was a perfect approach and I was landing only a few hundred meters away from the space center, but I didn't fire the nuclear engine early enough and landed hot. Everything exploded but luckily the crew capsule survived. For a first attempt it was pretty good, but I knew I could do better.

After 20 more tries with every Kerbal dying, I really regretted not sticking with the original landing. I ended up detaching the third tanker from the space station and docking with it. Used it as a heat shield and also used its parachutes. Once the parachutes opened, I had to quickly transfer fuel around to make the craft balanced. Ended up with a great landing that only broke a landing leg. Got 2 million credits and a couple thousand science points from the mission!!!


This was all over the course of the past month. I feel so relieved finally finishing the mission.

I personally feel Neversoft has reached the limit of what they're current fighting engine can do.  Injustice 2 needs to be a complete overhaul of their combat system or else it's going to competitively die as fast as MK X.  Though I'm not quite too sure what they can do.  Maybe they should try 3D again.

Nintendo fans seriously need to get over Melee.  Move on, I mean, you don't see people playing Third Strike anymore (Though the pirate scene in the FGC for third strike, and in general, disgusts me).

Ni No Kuni was good.  It's a bit of a challenge early on and has a pretty big grind curve.  Spent about 5 hours total grinding if not more.  The ending was pretty lame.

Zone of Enders was okay, it was short though, 5 hours.  Frame rate was a bit uneven but rarely terrible.

Prince of Persia's combat and a.i. is terrible.  It gets repetitive after the first battle.

Wtf you guys are crazy. 5 hours for me is just so much playtime. Considering there is also time between games/matches that weren't counted.

Back in the day I used to do 6 hour sessions of gaming. Back in killzone 2 and CoD MW2. But now I just can't, waaaay too much.

30 hours in a weekend... Seriously... Holly fudge that's insane.
Yeah until dawn is great. Loved it. Tell us when you finish how many guys you ha left alive and how many died.
Yeah I can't do that anymore.  Took me like a week to put the 5 hours necessary to finish Zone of Enders

(I was never gonna pre-order it, I'll buy it 5 years after it comes out when all DLC is available and when the DLCs in total are more expensive than the base game - exactly what I did with ME3 :P).

MS has less than half the floor space of Sony this E3. Panic!!!!!

But seriously, it seems kinda weird that they'd downsize this much.

The E3 hype and talk is starting to build up. I think Sony will have a great E3 this year as well. Less announcements in general. But more gameplay and trailers from games we already know about looking forward too. I would think Ms having less floor space is due to Scorpio and it not being ready to have booths yet, while their presentation while focus on Scorpio.

They need to have booths at E3. This thing is supposed to launch this holiday season, it would be laughable if they weren't able to let people try it at E3.

And yeah Sony has enough content for a great E3, maybe not as monumental as the last 2 years but still great. Add in a great Sucker Punch reveal and Bloodborne 2 and tihs thing will be glorious.

Just mentioned this game not long ago when talking about exclusives or console exclusives announced for Xbox One and how many of the smaller games have taken too long to release. Well, it seems Ion really did bite the dust.

this doesnt seem to be an MS situation but rather an indie situation. it seems a lot of indies are taking on projects bigger than they can handle. Rime is an example, that thing went through a lot of development issues. Wild seems to be another. No Mans Sky was delayed multiple times and only to release a subpar game.

The point was to show that even among Xbox One's weak lineup are games that still haven't come yet and may never. It's the fact that Microsoft has virtually nothing for Xbox One and even the remaining indie titles, many of which were announced long ago, are still not out and it was questionable that some ever would. Ion was one of them. It's not Microsoft's fault for games not under their control being canceled. What IS their fault is not securing enough titles or creating them to make a robust lineup.

I beat Ratchet and Clank (PS3) per Ratchet and Clank Collection on PS3.

78 out of 100.

Also just beaten Duke Nukem on PC.

Surprised how well it ran and did not have any issues at all considering its a game from 1991 that was released on MS-DOS.

It ran using a DOS BOX emulator and had no issues detecting my Dualshock 4.


This was one of two first games I played on PC way back in 1998 when I got my first PC so it was quite nostalgic for me to experience it again...but it didnt age well XD.

61 out of 100

So it seems Colin Moriarty is leaving Kinda Funny. Not long after a sexist joke he made on Twitter went South on him quickly. I would link his tweet but it turns out I'm blocked from viewing it. Either he locked it so only certain people can view it or my mentioning his name, without a hashtag, in a tweet I made last year got his attention and pissed him off. Same way Lionhead knew I tweeted about Fable Legends and basically told me to try it before I knock it.

He is resigning from Kinda Funny, effective immediately. My guess is that when Greg Miller didn't defend him about his tweet, he got pissed off.
