The Xenoblade Chronicles port requires the New 3DS.  I don't know whether that's a measure of the better processor or additional controls, but it's important enough that Nintendo is willing to risk disappointing a lot of people who had no earthly reason to research the issue.

Exactly. Why as a developer would you risk missing out on millions and millions of console owners by requiring the New New Really New 3DS...especially considering that your average consumer is a complete idiot?

It's obvious Nintendo gave the devs here a lot of money for this, but they won't do that for everyone. Would you want to take a chance on requiring a New 3DS console at this point when there's SO many of the 'old' ones out in the wild right now?

Can't find that New 3DS anywhere? Can't find that Amiibo either?

Reality Check: Nintendo is Awful. Seriously, they have no damn idea what they're doing nowadays. Although according to comments it seems it's a NOA issue and not Nintendo as a whole. Who knows.
84  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: February 04, 2015, 04:56:05 AM
The big difference is that Starbound is sci-fi based and Terraria is fantasy. And the mobile base that you have (as it grows, you can do some crazy things to it). And the races (each with their own ship designs and crafted items).

Yeah, the two games 'look' the same on the surface, but they're quite different as you play. Also, I've put in more hours into Starbound than Terraria for whatever reason.

Well worth it IMHO if you at all like the 'mining and crafting' aspect and such. Although it's ton more fun with friends.

The price difference between 3.5' and 2.5' drives are not that steep. And SSD drives are all 2.5 sized (which the console can use natively).

And does anyone need more than 2TB of console storage? Seriously, delete something.

A bit trigger happy with your conclusions, aren't you? slywink Yes, the 3DS is region locked. Specifically, the Australian 3DS (which is the one I bought) is region locked to Australia and... Europe.

...wait, you can buy it in Australia (and Japan, obviously) right now? That is...really weird.

That's why I figured you were going to get your games via other means, as sure you didn't sound Japanese. biggrin

Final Fantasy VII, the game that EVERYONE wanted a HD remake of (for some reason - I never liked the game), is just getting a simple port to the PS4 in Spring 2015.

The ultimate trolls. Wow. WTF is Squenix thinking (other than they're broke too (see my Capcom post))?

94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Street Fighter V on: December 06, 2014, 08:41:02 PM
Like I said about Tomb Raider, this is absolutely terrible for the gaming industry.

On the flip side...this also shows that Capcom is absolutely fucking broke. ALL THREE companies have bought exclusives now - Nintendo with Bayonetta 2, Microsoft with Dead Rising 3, and now Capcom with Street Fighter V.

AAAA gaming is fucking bankrupting the console industry as we know it. I'm saying it now - I think this is the last generation of consoles.
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Street Fighter V on: December 05, 2014, 08:35:20 PM
I really don't know what to think on this. This is a Big Thing if it truly is an exclusive, but as mentioned before I doubt it is. Although there seems to be some solid reasonings as it might be.

I dunno. We'll see once Capcom actually announces this (instead of screwing it up and posting it early).

Until that happens, good riddance.

I bought Dragon Age: Inquisition for way too little (yay for making Origin think that I'm in Mexico instead of the US by using a proxy, thus saving $25 on the 'digital collectors edition'), so I'm off playing that. I'd wish they'd patch it though - the 'cinema scenes' look so jumpy and low FPS.

Just remember, we were all really excited when we saw the Phantom Menace trailer too.

Actually, I was FAR more excited about the Phantom Menace trailer than I am with this piece of crap. You don't 'tease' anything by showing absolutely nothing whatsoever.

Somewhat related to the trailer:

Actually, a crossguard on a lightsaber makes complete sense.

Think of swordfighting. Okay, so the two of you clash up with your blades. All one person needs to do is shift their force downward and suddenly their blade is chopping off fingers if there's no crossguard to get into the way.

Frankly it's something that was needed for a while now on a Lightsaber - some kind of protection to the hand wielding the thing.

As for the trailer - it didn't say anything, it didn't show hardly anything, and it didn't tell anything about what to expect on the movie. Basically Disney went out and said, "WE'RE MAKING A STAR WARS MOVIE!!" for all the zero people who didn't already know. biggrin

I wonder if these new stormtrooper helmets will allow the stuntmen and extras wearing them to actually see where they're going.

A little late replying to this, but:

4. No Clone Trooper armor was ever produced for the films.

It's become a joke how overreliant Lucas was on greenscreen and special effects over the course of the Prequel trilogy - virtually every set had some major greenscreen component, giving everything a slightly-too-clean sheen about it. But this might surprise you - there was never a single piece of actual Clone Trooper armor ever on-screen. Literally every time you see a Clone Trooper in armor, it's completely CGI - the only times any part of a Clone Trooper isn't ALL CGI is when their face appears, and any time you see a Clone Trooper with a helmet on, it's 100%.

To be fair, this probably had something to do with the original Stormtrooper Armor being notoriously uncomfortable to wear, see out of, breathe in, etc.

Quick question - I'm considering this for my eldest.  Since the kids invariably share games, I need to know how many separate save slots there are available.

My digital download version has 3. I'd assume that the cart version would be 3 as well (as games save to the memory card and not to the cart itself).

It sits underneath my gaming PC's monitor (or next to me when I'm on a console) and it gives me access to anything no matter what I'm doing.

Ubisoft has published a handy rundown of known technical issues with Assassin's Creed Unity as well as the status of fixes. Framerate's on the list for all platforms, with the following workaround offered pending more fixes: "If playing single player, we suggest that you disconnect from your internet connection (wifi or network cable). It could potentially improve frame rate." a game that all but DEMANDS multiplayer (especially to use the above hacking functions and treasure chest openings and everything else), Ubisoft suggests that you turn off the internet to try to get a boosted FPS?

Fuck. I'm glad I didn't buy this crap at launch.

Why are you guys buying the premium companion app anyway? You're basically telling Ubisoft that it's totally fine for them to shove these fucking blue chests in our faces. I'm not even going to install the base companion app, and I hate that these blue chests are everywhere despite not being part of the game. They might as well have had huge ads for their app hanging from the Notre Dame.

THANK YOU. Finally, somebody with some damn sense.

Ubisoft has the gall to embargo a review of a game they KNOW is rife with problems until 12 hours AFTER the launch (and here the latest Dragon Age game had its review come out a WEEK early), and now you're paying to open a fucking treasure chest that's right in front of you?

I wonder why I've gotten tired of the series, and it's the above that explains it well. Companion app after companion app where they just want all your personal information to do stuff you would've been able to do back in the golden age of gaming for free (and without installing said app).

I feel exactly the same way. I'm tired of shooters in general, and I hate multiplayer shooters even more.

I got this game for PC yesterday and played it until I reached the second "bonfire". It seems very promising so far. Lots of people are talking about constant crashes and instability, but I haven't seen anything of the sort. On the other hand, my PC is pretty powerful, enough to run this game at a stable 60 fps on very high detail.

I've heard that this is due to some brand new 'unbreakable' DRM (at least according to a /. article). While it apparently has stopped the 'hackers' (after 3 days anyway), it's causing a lot of system instability in general to a lot of people.

Yeah, the devs deliberately reduced the importance of perfect timing in this game. There are still timed puzzles, but the window you have to complete whatever you need to do is larger and more forgiving than in the first game.

Yeah, I've seen that too. Definitely a good thing.

Grimrock 2 is a huge improvement over the original...which honestly is really hard to do because I enjoyed the hell out of Grimrock 1. If you even remotely love the classic Dungeon Masters, Eye of the Beholders, or just want to play a beautifully remastered 'classic game', buy this now.

I still can't understand why more developers don't give the option to choose between IAP, or a full priced premium download. The number of games I've skipped because of these stupid timers is in the dozens.

Because they're stupid, that's why.

Also, they like money - games that stop you via 'energy' tend to make a TON more than normal premium downloads.

While I love the 6, the whole thin-ness thing is really reaching the point where you're almost trying to grab a razor's edge if you don't add some sort of case on it. It's also such a slick surface that it'll slide out of your pocket at the slightest change in body angle. As I found out.  icon_redface

That's one reason why I got an Apple case on my 5 - the thing was too small and too slick. I was afraid of dropping it too.

A comment from someone on the Ubi team has made me worried about these consoles, he basically said that AI is processed by the CPU and that the PS4/Xbox are not powerful enough to handle the game above 30FPS (steadily) because of it. Granted, AC games tend to have more AI characters on screen at once than most games, but it's still disheartening. I'm hoping the limitation is overcome as time goes on or at least only applies to open-world games of this magnitude.

Keep in mind that (apparently) both consoles are 1.6GHz quad-core AMD machines of some generation. I'm not at all surprised we're running into problems especially considering that PCs are available 2GHz faster (and I'm guessing a generation or two ahead in efficiency, too).

In short, there's no way we're reaching the 'mythical' 1080p at 60fps this console generation either.
117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: October 07, 2014, 02:04:07 AM
Thanks, XB1 owners - Assassin's Creed Unity is being nerfed down to your level because of bags of money (and/or corporate stupidity):

It started with a quote from Ubisoft Montreal producer Vincent Pontbriand, speaking to the website Video Gamer about their decision to keep Unity maintaining 900p resolution and 30 frames per second on both the Xbox One and PS4.

"We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff," Pontbriand reportedly said, no doubt referring to a string of extended conversations that have sprung up in the past year over the technical differences between Sony and Microsoft's current-gen consoles.

No doubt this also means that like Watch Dogs, the PC version will be shit and/or heavily modified. Hopefully a few ini tweaks (and other things) can restore the game to looking like it should on the PC version.

(I'm joking about blaming XB1 owners - but I still think it's a terrible idea.)
