It may just be that Amy Hennig wanted a change. I mean, she's made a lot of good games there, and she's done plenty of other work. No reason for her to stay if she's feeling a bit of wanderlust.
Well that makes for a boring story! I wouldn't read that article! slywink

I gotta say, I really love the Japanese release commercial. It seemed a little cheesy at first but I love the music and the rest of the commercial is growing on me. I wonder if it suits the Japanese audience.

Still don't understand the need of people who only own the PS4 to dick wave every time someone mentions anything that could detract from-- in their mind -- the honor of the mighty PS4.

Titanfall is EXCLUSIVE on the Xbox One among consoles. 
Actually it's not. It's out on the 360 as well. smile
84  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: 2890 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: February 25, 2014, 10:06:07 PM
Yeah it basically outsold all the other releases except for the PS2 and Wii. That's not bad company to be with.
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: February 23, 2014, 06:59:14 AM
PS4 is released in Japan! Spring forth the deluge! Any predictions on first week numbers? I'm guessing (totally uneducated) 400k in the first week. It's essentially a two (one?) console market in Japan now. The PS3 outsold the 360 by a 50:1 ratio last week. (10,240 to 194)

From what I've read, the Japanese console market has been in decline for some time. I'm sure the PS4 will sell, but consoles in general aren't doing great over there.

Not sure anything that isn't small and cute sells in Japan.

Based on that theory alone the Bone is doomed in Japan.

Seriously though I didn't know the PS4 still hadn't launched in Japan. I wonder how many consoles Sony has ready to go for the launch? My guess is enough that you will see Sony trumpeting their new world wide sales numbers a month or so after launch.

The Bone was doomed in Japan even without that theory.

Yeah I know, I just like pointing out how Ginormous and ugly the Bone is. But I will never understand Japans resentment towards western video game products.

Actually, thinking about it, I'll bet the Bone will be huge in Japan, just so they can show us how mysteriously unpredictable they are.
Oh it'll be huge in Japan - unfortunately its size won't help in much.  smile

91  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: February 03, 2014, 09:29:05 AM
Like almost all console and game releases in Japan, I predict huge, huge sales in the first week and then a huge drop off right after that. I'm guessing 500k to 1 mil in her first week and then dropping down to about 50k per week.

Effect can be used in a verb when it has the meaning of "to bring about" or "to accomplish" something. So while you can "bring about a change", you can't "bring about"  or "accomplish"  an multiplatform title so no, saying it will effect multiplatform titles is not really valid.

In another thread someone said they'd talked with him via facebook and he was fine, but just taking a break from GT it seems.
How are we going to find out about the Daily Steam deals?

I think when you talk about expectations you have to indicate a time reference. Compared to pre-E3 expectations the Xbox1 is seriously underperforming in NA. But compared to post E3 expectations, the Xbox is like a team that was down 40-0 at the half and then came back to almost tie up the game (against an opponent that they were expected to trounce fairly easily)

Game looks pretty awesome but unfortunately it doesn't look my my style of game. It's a little bit too run 'n' gun. I was hoping for something a little slower and more tactical.  COD fans are sure to love it though.

Yeah this sucks. Apparently in Canada,  Rogers cable is coming out with their own streaming service. They could make Netflix count against your bandwith limit but not the amount that you use through their own streaming service. Internet providers should not also be the content providers.

I also repeat that Family Sharing was never, ever officially announced. Likewise, MS didn't really say anything concrete about licensing. Everything collapsed when they realized they didn't know what they were doing, and Sony called them out on that. Family sharing was a myth released as a document by some random person after the fact, probably an MS employee, but that service was never announced and no one can ever say it was going to be implemented, and there's a lot of conflicting info about how this mythical sharing plan would have been implemented anyway.

People are getting upset over the loss of some non-existant, mythological program that never existed.

That's a load of bull, Family Sharing it was very definitely announced.

Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games.  Anyone can play your games on your console--regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.

Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere: Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friendís house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games.  You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.
Yes but it was never very clearly explained. I'm convinced that it was just a fantasy that MS had going. Were publishers going to agree to sharing their games with 10 other people? Perhaps someone will come out with a book one day which will make this a whole lot clearer. If MS wants to go to an all digital world then they need to do it the way Valve did it, by making people WANT to go that route, not forcing them to.

I'm guessing a mech game plays a bit different than a regular FPS game and you don't need as many players? Definitely disappointing but I'm sure it will still be fun. I find it hard to believe that it's hardware limitations as isn't the PC version also 6v6? Surely it isn't that much work to raise the player limit. Although I suppose it would mean making all new maps as well.

So if you really want to play TLOU, you'll soon be able to do so without needing a PS3 or PS4? I wonder how smart of a move that is from Sony? I'm sure a lot of people who went years and years without feeling the need to own a PS3 ended up getting one so they could play TLOU.

I'm actually surprised by how small the gap is. But of course we all knew that in the beginning both were going to sell all the units they could produce. I'm guessing that the next couple of months will be the real test.

According to this Forbes article, which they admit is based off info from a sketchy site, the One was outsold by the Wii U the week before Christmas.
And the 3DS outsold everything. That's pretty amazing for a system that was practically DOA.

16GB $39.99, 32GB $79.99 for their regular prices.  double the price for double the space.  true, he could get a 16 and maybe the prices will drop if he decides he needs more space, but as small as these things are I'd say go with the big one that will never need to be taken out.  seriously, a cat could eat these things:

Justin and I took a look at the Xbox One over the last month, tallied up what it does well, what it doesn't, and what we think Microsoft can do to fix it.  

How'd we do?
Very good article. Do you have one coming for the PS4?
111  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Re: Books Read 2014 Edition on: January 02, 2014, 02:05:07 AM
I read 32 which was two more than my goal of 30 for last year and an all time high for me. I could have done more but I had a busy December and ended with a tome (very interesting though!) about Marie Antoinette when I could have polished off a couple of regular sized novels. If you have Goodreads then please add me from the Goodreads thread.

It's the new year again! Time for another bump! I blew through my annual goal of 30 books this year and probably would have set an unbreakable record (for myself) had it not been for a pretty busy December. Going to go for a goal of 35 this year.

I had to step away from the game when I got to the section where you drop down a level on your own ("we'll just wait right here for you to kill everything") where I died many clicker deaths, seemingly no matter what I did. Need to get back to it.
Yes that was an extremely difficult section. I tried sneaking and taking them out but I was always seen and mobbed. I ended up just running through and then getting myself elevated and in a corner and killing them all.
I am a third of the way through now and while my jaw is not literally on the floor it is literally dropped open practically the whole time I am playing it. I must look like a damned fool while I'm playing but I can't help myself. My favorite trick is using a bottle to get about 3 clickers to gather together and then using a single molotov on all of them.
Some of the sneaking parts are tough but I'm not bothered because it's so easy to restart an encounter and when the sneaking does work it gives you such an awesome sense of satisfaction!

I usually make a point of not reading video game novels. My TBR list of "real" books is so large that I don't have the time. That said I did enjoy the first Mass Effect novel and I do have the whole Republic Commando series by Karen Traviss to read. I also read a bunch of Doom books when I was in high school but I doubt they have aged well.  smile

Numbers really mean exactly zero right now. We're probably going to have to wait about 3 or 4 months before we can even guess what actual demands are like. That's when the real fun will begin!
