What? I thought that was a placeholder! Thank you Porpoise *excitement intensifies*
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” “the mo...
I would play an "up-ported" version of this game. I absolutely loved The Last of Us. I beat it multiple times including on Survival (Survivor?) mode. But as much as I loved it, there were certain portions with jaggies and framerate drops. If they were able to tune the game up for the PS4 and lock the framerate at 30 fps (or maybe 60) I would definitely love to play it again. The same goes for games like GTA5 and Dark Souls II. Those games would benefit from next-gen...
Simulators have been around for decades. Even back in the day, there were some weird ones. Anyone else remember Sim Ant?
This is not the behavior of a console that is selling like hotcakes. Looks like retailers are trying to clear out stock since they were already overstocked from Microsoft's usual Holiday channel-stuffing.
Gotta hand it to Notch. Guy has balls.
The Wii has taught us that playing the same games in a different way is going to get you super-popular. Sony 3D TVs and the 3DS have taught us that VIEWING the same games in a different way usually doesn't grab you as much popularity. Unless the VR is insanely-accurate and very convenient and very user-friendly, it won't be a hit.
First Amazon purchasing Double Helix. Now Facebook purchasing one of the biggest VR companies in the world. Remember that just a few months ago John Carmack went to work for Oculus. Things are a changin' in the game industry. The oversaturation is going to reach a breaking point soon.
There's a lot of great modern music in videogames. Journey, Halo, Last of Us, MGS4, Deus Ex, Final Fantasy 13, Mass Effect (I know I'm forgetting a ton more) all had amazing music. With that said, as videogames have become more "Hollywood" and we can actually use real instruments in a soundtrack, it feels far less unique. That's the thing. Old videogame music felt unique because all of the sounds were piped through the hardware. Nowadays videogame music ...
I'm all about dem prizes. Large.
Titanfall's use of Azure is laughable. The bot AI is quite bad and during times of latency it actually causes the AI to halt and stand around doing nothing. Mind you, "power of the cloud" was something that Microsoft has been preaching since May of last year when the X1 was revealed. They claimed the cloud would make Forza 5 better (it didn't; the retail release was a huge downgrade). They claimed the cloud would make Ryse run smoother (it didn't; framer...
