Consider Nintendo's position... Their consoles since the N64 have been all over the place in terms of total sales. They never know if they are going to have a huge hit or a total flop.
Wii couldn't meet demand because it was a surprise hit. I don't blame Nintendo for failing to meet demand there - no one could have predicted that success.
Then the WiiU utterly tanked.
So what do Nintendo do..? D...
I thought this years E3 for MS and Sony had... problems
Sony showed the better exclusives and gave more reasons to own a PS4/Pro than MS did for their S or X. But I was disappointed there wasn't a megaton announcement or more new stuff showed. I stayed up till 3am to see basically extended trailers for stuff I knew about from last year. Sure Horizon DLC is nice, and SotC is a Day 1, but tbh nothing Sony showed needed an E3 stage show - they could have just released the ...
It's kinda interesting that GG put so much attention to detail in some parts, like puddles forming / evaporating and all the other stunning bits; but water / foliage reacting realistically to the player wasn't added (which I would argue is a more immersive detail than puddle behaviour). I guess that might have pushed the engine too far.
@ Utalkin2me... reductio ad absurdum - look it up, (hint: it's not a Harry Potter spell)
The difference between 900p and 1080p is not noticeable (or barely noticeable if you have a large enough TV). We're not talking 480 to 1080 here.
Yeah, and did you see the clamour for the Nintendo Classic Mini!! Seems people want access to 25 year old ROMs and are willing to pay when most are easily accessible via emu's!
The XB1 S doesn't come with a headset either. I was a bit surprised when I opened the box.
If the Ninty service is cheap, then it's no big deal and doesn't need to match Gold or PSN. Ideally I'd rather not have to pay for any online service, but it's a sign of the times.
Unless you play games instead of resolutions...
I've done this a few times. It's pretty easy.
If you're going to grind crash sites in one system you only need repair Launch Thruster and Pulse engine to get the ship up and running, then head to the next crash site and repeat.
To fix those two components I found I only need 6 Carite Sheets (300 iron to make), 200 Heridium, and 20 Zinc
Iron and Heridium is stuff I can get in about 5-10 mins from pretty much every planet, and...
Did ICO or SotC have the best framerates or controls... Did I care? Have I ever cared in the multiple times I have played both of those games?
ICO was pretty much overlooked when it first came out, and yet here we are getting reading to watch Last Guardian get burned to the ground because of hype.
As long as the game has the soul of ICO / SotC I'll be happy.
Yeah, two of my old fave titles. Really need a proper sequel to Evil Genius, it was an awesome game.
Prison Architect is one of the best management games I have ever played on PC. The UI looks like it works really well on consoles.
Whilst Rift will eventually do room scale it looks like it may be just as much 'hassle' as Vive. Jason Rubin stated it will need an additional sensor, which I would imagine will need mounting high up to give a view of the floor (like the Vive).
I set my Vive up today, and although having to mount the two sensors was a bit of a pain, once done it has been trouble free. I was pleasantly surprised that the set up was actually much easier than many reviews made out.
The PS4.5 is just a PS4 hardware refresh - similar to what we see every generation. It'll have zero impact on gaming. It will likely add an updated BD drive and be geared toward allowing playback of 4k video content. At best. Maybe, just maybe it will add a hardware scaler to upscale current gaming content to 4k (not the same as allowing native 4k) - but I think that's unlikely. Releasing a 'VR focused' PS4 wo...
I'm bored of the US settings. Move it somewhere else.
@Omnisonne Good spot. Now you mention it, I recall at the end of the intro it does mention something about Europe. Yeah, I guess a new area would have been nicer - but if I hadn't seen this article I wouldn't have thought I was playing the same map as FC4. Ah well. No big deal. The map still feels different to me and the foliage and other geographical changes make it look different too.
@hvd222 Your loss. I think it's cool they based the game on the same area and I don't think it's laziness at all. The intro that counts down from modern day to 10,000BC is a big hint that this is the same place set in a different time. I'm really enjoying the game. It's definitely Far Cry, but it feels a bit different.
No one is saying it's the best thing ever. Just that it is underrated. I preferred the hand to hand combat in Mad Max over Batman. The car combat gets better after a few upgrades. I guess the devs had to make the initial cars handle like boats otherwise the upgrades would not have been significant enough. I liked the story. It was every bit as interesting as the recent movie reboot. Which is to say that it was simple, stupid fun. While Ba...
I did a 40 episode playthrough on YouTube and loved almost every minute. I think a lot of reviewers saw it was open world and just gave it a generic score without bothering to immerse themselves in it. The dynamic between Chum and Max is great. There are a few stand-out moments in the story. The combat is never less than ridiculously satisfying. Sure some of the things were tedious if you wanted to 100% the game (like minesweeping), but overall it was a blast...
Price Killer app Developer support If VR hits any two of those three, then it'll be OK. I have some doubts it will do that, but we shall see, and I hope to be proved wrong.
I don't think either console had a particularly good year for exclusives. Bloodborne and Until Dawn were good, and so were Rare Replay and Rise of the Tomb Raider, but I played on my WiiU and PC more than XB1 and PS4.
You know what the best thing to do is... Sit back, relax, and just wait for the game to launch. All this speculation, doom-mongering and hyperbole does no good. It changes nothing. If the game launches and it's a masterpiece - awesome, SquareEnix will get my money. If it's trash then I'll vote with my wallet, and the community can go back to asking for a proper FFVII remake for the next 20 years.
