this is going to be a really nice game. can't wait to play it.

sony guys are getting this too and will get to experience some of the greatness we xboxers got with Riddick. have fun.

USMChardcharger6574d ago

any one care to explain this to us non tech know it alls...

"The PowerPC part of the Cell is very similar to a Xbox360 CPU
core. They share most of the common performance problems and are both quite bad at running generic c++ code."

Dick Jones6574d ago

Just sounds like some geek complaining about the dificulties of making my game. I don't care, just GIT-R-DONE!!!

andy capps6574d ago

I'm not a tech know-it-all, but I believe he's referring to the PPU part of the cell. There's 1 PPE, and 7 SPE's. I'm wondering why they're using the PPE as the cell is designed to let the SPE's do almost everything, maybe that's what he discusses in the article. I can't read it at work though because of firewalls, anyone care to paste the article in here?

...this game has characters (I believe the Darklings) voiced by none other than MIKE PATTON himself. Holy crap that's awesome. Also, Riddick was an awesome game so I don't see why this can't rule as well.

Nobody is obligated to have a sale but that doesn’t mean it can’t be disappointing.


Ranking The Coldest, Most Ruthless Protagonists In Gaming

Not all video game protagonists are sweet, jolly, or wholesome. Folks like Agent 47 are cold, ruthless, and reserved and it shows.

I'd like to believe Joel's situation is more about turning into a calloused survivor in a cold-hard world who may have made selfish decisions. Not inherently ruthless.

Ah, fond memories of strangling all the people in their hotel rooms in Hitman 1

Lara Croft, Nathan Drake etc, cos they pretend to be the good guys but are mass murderers that show no remorse.
