I do wish there was world wide standard for this stuff, so that all developers were actually getting the same breaks..

Lol! Oh Nintendo... Always having to fight some crusade, regardless of how stupid it is.

bowsette look/design is way better than any female char in mario series 😁.

Ugh, just let them go, at least they're not as bad as the Sonic fans, that stuff will make you want to bleach your eyes. I can understand them wanted to protect their IP and prevent modding Nintendo characters into Palword, or even shutting down fan games (not that I agree with them shutting it down), but let people have their fan art.

If it's Child Porn stuff, then have them criminally investigated. Too many weird f**kers around.

MajorLazer9d ago

There's some proper wronguns on this site, so I'm not surprised. You should see how heated they get when an article on nude mods or something alike gets posted.

All that processor ever really served was to make game development harder for most people. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Markdn11d ago

Your right, well up. Till the point they realised how to program it and then it became a monster, they way it off loads tasks to spus and they way it manages this is astounding, I wish they had just upgraded it for ps4 gave it more ram to its disposal as it would truely have been a monster, instead we got an under powered AMD chip and some of the guys here we very disappointed indeed. For a cost point of view it made PS4 more affordable but from a development point of view, we already had the development tools and software

yeahokwhatever11d ago

all that processor did was wipe the floor with its competition. like, badly.

TheNamelessOne11d ago

I remember most 3rd party titles being the runt of the litter when it came to ports that generation.

yeahokwhatever11d ago

EA made a few bad ports in the opening months of the release. compare 1st party titles. go ahead. do it. oh you cant. not even the same league.

Ignore because they're good at tech/frame rate analysis? K..

1nsomniac12d ago

Ignore because they’re arguably widely recognised as one of, if not the best source in the industry… great logic. Well done.

fsfsxii12d ago

They offer surface level analysis, its like that Tv overlay that displays the framerate, they absolutely have 0 clue with anything development related, or anything behind the scenes, and more often than not, they’re a propaganda machine.

1nsomniac12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

The irony being they clearly do know and they continuously prove that they know.. Relentlessly. If these comments aren’t sarcasm then they’re a sure fire way to make yourself look a bit stupid.

Aggesan12d ago (Edited 12d ago )

I think they're among the best in the business when it comes to frame by frame analysis, but they often speak on topics where they're not more informed than any other interested and passionate amateur. Quite often it's painful watching their show when they state things like facts when they're in fact wrong, and knowing that most of their viewers will assume they're 100% correct about everything they say. I still enjoy them though, especially the retro stuff.

RaidenBlack12d ago

lol, one slightly -ve take from DF and bam! ~ " Ignore "

Huey_My_D_Long12d ago

For those who say DF doesn't know what they are doing...Gotta give us a hard example not a generalized statement.

TheEroica11d ago

Sony beggers raging at DF because Sony can't feed them enough remakes and old generation content to keep them happy. Yikes!

VariantAEC11d ago

DF... the same people convinced PS5 and Xbox Series consoles couldn't do raytracing? The same people who didn't consider PS4 Pro was running AC7 better than Xbox One X due to PS4 Pro's CPU rapid packed math feature while I was telling them to look into it? The same people that are still confused about the PS5's capabilities against XSX's despite all the information being handed to them on a silver platter by Mark Cerny which some smarter gamers with some programming experience have been telling them since the road to PS5 talk was done? Those people?

Yeah, I think I'll continue to pass on any superficial opinion-based observations they make about game developement, too.

Here they are using NATIVE again like they know what it means, they don't.

meganick11d ago

I’d like to see someone explain why you’re getting downvotes. You’re correct. If software is running on native (original) hardware, then it’s not being emulated. If it is being emulated, then it’s not running on native hardware. “Native emulation” seems to be a bit of an oxymoron.
