It would be nice if Kinect just...worked. I don't mind flailing my arms. Wii Sports, Wii Fit, etc are some of my favorite games (I'm serious) and I loved the Wii.
The thing is: the Wii just...worked. Kinect doesn't. What's even worse is that it has taken this long for Xbox One to come out with a single game that fully uses Kinect, and yet the game is disappointing. Another bullet-point for those who would argue that Kinect should've been an optional periph...
No, it doesn't affect "two thirds of all servers". It only affects servers with CentOS 6.x which has openssl 1.0.1. Earlier versions of openSSL are not affected. The fix is already available and takes 10 minutes.
And of course, not all servers use openSSL.
Dude. Sonic All Stars?
Haven't played it online but I got it as a PS+ game a few months ago and I was straight-up shocked at how good it is.
Anyway, maybe a good compromise is that Nintendo restricts voice chat in "public" games. As in, if you jump online with random other people, no voice chat. And then in order to voice chat, you log into a private room. It doesn't have to be password-protected, just a private r...
Maybe my luck will be better this month.
Didn't win the random PS4, and I didn't win the blog PS4.
Anyway, good luck to all participants. We had an amazing number of great blogs last month. Hopefully we get some good ones this time around, too.
Nintendo has been very vocal (irony) about not allowing voice chat. Their reasoning is sound: they want anyone - from a 4 year old kid to a grandmother in her 70s - to be able to play with others online in a "clean" environment. While it's annoying, it is also something that sets them apart from other companies. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but we all know that when voice chat is involved, you're going to have those people who mess it up for everyone.
When I was playing it on PC, there were times of latency that would cause the AI to simply stop and stand there. It was weird. You'd be in a firefight and then suddenly all the troopers as well as any AI-controlled titans would stop shooting and would simply stand there doing their "idle" animation. Titans sprinting forward would screech to a halt. AI troopers (who are stupid as dirt anyway) would point their guns at you but not shoot, not until the game got re-connected to &quo...
The big surprise is not that the Xbox One version is going to be inferior (anyone with a brain knows that).
The big surprise is that both of the console versions will be a significant step down from what they showed off in the past. Neither the PC (maybe...after mods) nor PS4 nor X1 versions will live up to that original "gameplay" trailer. Ubisoft has been downgrading their games for years now. People should know better. They took the crown of "Bullshot king&q...
1) The Wii U doesn't need "saving" from a gaming standpoint. Already enough games on it that make it worth owning, IMO, as long as you know what you're getting yourself into
2) Nintendo actually seems like they're trying hard with this game, advertising it, showing off previews, etc. With NSMB U and Mario Meow, it felt incredibly phoned in, like Nintendo was just going through the motions. Mario Kart 8 feels like they're pouring everything they'v...
Came here to say this. Well said.
SS is a decent game (if you take away the Zelda name, perhaps) but it shows how broken Modern Zelda is. The combat is a puzzle. Constantly talking to NPCs and doing fetch-quests for them instead of going on cool adventures. Combat is never threatening or exciting.
What? I thought that was a placeholder! Thank you Porpoise
It does look really good. I was a bit disappointed with this game after playing the demo last year at Best Buy after E3, but they've improved it significantly. I still think the kites and underwater segments and anti-gravity stuff is dumb (just my opinion) but it still looks great.
Release date, please!
My job is to make the internet run. I work for a hosting company similar to Rackspace, HostGator, etc that supports cloud servers, dedis, shared boxes, and all the stuff involved with setting up a network infrastructure.
And I can tell you, what Microsoft is showing is purely PR. They are able to do it, technology-wise. What Microsoft is showing off EXISTS. It is actually real, it can be done. But here's the bait-and-switch: we are not to the point where offloading portio...
stahp, Microsoft. Juss stahp.
Show off the games. Show them off and let us SEE the power of the clowdz.
Otherwise, this is just more of your marketing BS.
IMO, with this latest entry, BlazBlue has finally reached the fluidity of Guilty Gear. Obviously, the attacks and characters are different, but everything is very polished now. Plus, there are a lot more characters included.
I bought it on Amazon. I never actually jumped in with the original Wii Fit, so I'll give it a try with this one.
That is freakin' adorable. Gives me an idea for a blog...
Of course there will be an army of huge franchises at E3. This is the first E3 after launch. But how many of those franchises will be on Xbox One?
The only missing part of this article is the irony that the PS4 is still outselling this "deal".
Playstation has already dominated for two generations (PS1 and PS2) and will likely dominate for a third gen (PS4).
Can people honestly say that videogames stagnated during Playstation's reign?
Titanfall was/is being hyped quite a bit. Let me give you some quotes directly from Microsoft and YOU tell ME if it lived up to the hype (and as a side note, I played my fill of Titanfall on my PC and found it lacking):
"If you’ve been waiting for the biggest game of the generation before purchasing your Xbox One..."
“a brave new vision of the future of multiplayer games”,
“the first real next-gen shooter”
