Who says the controls have to be touch screen only? Microsoft could release a $30 Bluetooth controller. Problem solved.

If that does happen it sure as hell won't be $30...accessories are for phat profit margins.

I'm just not buying into the 'misfits of SHIELD' thing they are going for. Its only 2 episodes but I don't care or believe in the slightest in any of a cast except Coulson. I get tired of shows that have to make almost the whole cast look like they were picked out of a modeling agency brochure.

After the first one I am just not ready to rush out and see this.  Jackson drup in too much stuff for me and is trying to make it too  big for what the story really is.  

Same here. While I still enjoy seeing the sets, and outdoor shots of New Zealand they put in I just never got into the movie. It just sort of plodded along. Scenes like the council meeting in Rivendale felt like forced fan service to show past characters and some of the action stuff like the chase at the end felt way too long. No reason this thing should have been dragged out to 3 movies IMO but I guess the money is too much of a lure.

Xbox One Day One Update expected to take up to 15-20 minutes


Quote
Xbox One chief product officer Marc Whitten says the console's mandatory day one update will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to download.

The executive told IGN: "We are optimising Xbox One so that the day one update is as fast as possible. While we're still finalizing the details, we expect that the download will take between 15 and 20 minutes for most users."


This isn't that bad TBH,remember the day one Wii U update?

Estimated time based on what? End user bandwidth in the US can vary wildly. Not everyone lives in places where they can get 50Mb cable or FIOS.

Quote from: Rumpy on September 28, 2013, 06:29:37 PM

I didn't read it as being Lucas's fault. From reading the article, he was genuinely interested in making good games, even becoming excited about them when involved. I think the fault lies in the management not schooling him in game development procedure (a problem when the management itself was disconnected from the process) which led him to have an unnatural expectation of what could be done. I don't blame him for thinking it could be done. If someone like the LucasArts president were able to approach him without restriction with concerns instead of that liaison dictacting everything, then I think things could have been different. He did what he knew best, making decisions from a filmmaker's point of view which was unfortunate, instead of decisions from a gamemaker's point of view due to a disconnect.

Its clearly stated in the article that he came in and told them to make major changes after they were well into development with the 1313 game. Maybe he felt its wasn't that big of a deal but someone needed to stand up and say that's too much, but its apparent the management was a bunch of "yes men" that bowed to the mighty Lucas.

Man such a love/hate when it comes to Lucas. He makes a series of movies that defines so many geek childhoods and then in the later years proceeds to drag that imagery through the mud with the prequels and crap like the special edition of the originals. Now we read that he screwed with game developers because he doesn't have a damn clue about the difference between games and movies.

I'll always appreciate what he started but man am I glad he has finally left the building.

You can play all your Windows and Mac games on your SteamOS machine, too. Just turn on your existing computer and run Steam as you always have - then your SteamOS machine can stream those games over your home network straight to your TV!

My favorite part... you could have a relatively low-powered box sitting under your TV and stream locally from your gaming rig in another room.

Or I could just play the game on my gaming rig.


What's the point of this thing? Because I don't see it.

*shrug* I prefer playing on the couch on a big TV for a number of reasons.  Having access to my entire Steam library in the living room sounds great.


Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo.

Most STEAM games were made for the PC and a mouse/keyboard and I'd bet many of the ones that do support a controller came out on console too.

This is a "solution" to a problem that doesn't exist except in Gabe Newell's mind.

171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How are you feeling about your pre-orders now? on: September 15, 2013, 03:14:22 PM
I actually wouldn't have minded a disc less console even if that meant always on DRM if they gave incentive for it. With being able to cut out physical media and the middleman retail store lower the prices. Come out and say all Day 1 games will be $49.99 instead of $60. You show that yea your making this change but here is a clear benefit for the consumer for going all digital. Steam enticed people to go this way on the PC with all the great sales they do, not just trying to force it down gamers throats.
172  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [Vita] Killzone Mercenary on: September 11, 2013, 05:22:28 AM
The negatives seem mostly from reviewers putting this game up against the PS3 Killzone games and other shooters which isn't totally fair IMO. At the end of the day its still a handheld game, and I'm pretty sure was made by a smaller team than would be on the regular games. Plus its $40($36 for digital version) not $60. For the price I think its great and shows the Vita can be that PlayStation experience in your hand.

The PC version was to focused in its original design on the long term hardcore grinders with its real world auction house and super low high level loot drops. They wanted it to be about people in MMO's that redo dungeon/raids over and over to get one cool item.

Quote from: Destructor on September 04, 2013, 08:56:12 PM

The reason why I see everyone switching to development on the new consoles is simple:

The three main platforms (XBO, PS4, PC) are all one platform - a PC. The XBO is a PC (AMD processor and an ATI graphic card, 8GB of RAM and 500GB HD). The PS4 is a PC (same). The PC, well, is a PC.

If you were a 3rd Party Developer, wouldn't you want to be developing solely on a single platform that allows you to release titles on 3 different systems?

This is also why the WiiU is (even more) screwed - because it's not a PC. And it's not like the 3rd Parties are seriously supporting it to begin with.


They have vastly bigger users bases for the time being and developers have been making games for them for years now. The tools/engines are well developed regardless of hardware differences. The huge cost of AAA will make publishers offer a 360/PS3 version too just like Titanfall is getting for a couple of years still for money reasons.

So apparently Battlefield 4 sucks for the PS4 and Xbox One (compared to the PC version).
Perhaps this is rose colored glasses talking but wasn't there a time when consoles outperformed PCs graphically for at least a couple of months after they were first released?
http://www.videogamer.com/ps4/battlefield_4/news/battlefield_4_on_ps4_and_xbox_one_we_need_to_compromise_in_some_places_says_dice.html

But even BF3 on the PS3 and 360 looked good.  Not PC good, but good.  Won't it be even better on the next gen consoles?

It's a relative comparison.  The articles they are referring to aren't comparing it to BF3 for PS3/360, they are comparing it to the videos of BF4 (PC) already shown, wherein apparently it looks a lot less awesome.



Those PC demos were also probably run on $500 GTX 780's too. Compare performance/detail level on a $200 card that the vast majority of gamers have and I'd bet its much closer in quality.

Ben Affleck is your new Batman.

I found Man of Steel to unfortunately be somewhat mediocre.  I really WANTED to like it, but was ultimately underwhelmed.  I just don't see this acting choice working out.  I'd be thrilled to be proven wrong, and while he has turned in a number of poor performances, films like Argo and The Town still give me hope (despite it being rather fleeting).  At least with low expectations, perhaps I will be surprised.

Add in Gone Baby Gone to that list(his directorial debut). In fact that list of movies IMO shows his best talent is as a director. I'd be more stoked to hear he was doing that for the movie than playing Batman.

Admittedly, almost all those early 360 JRPG studios have either disappeared, or just haven't done anything interesting since. I can't remember a single one that's got a game

So MS gained nothing in paying some Japanese devs to make a few games for them.. The 360 has done nothing in Japan yet they are trying it again? When will they realize its just not going to happen for them or any outside company when it comes to the video game market there.

This. If you want to be all digital you can on the PC and mostly on consoles. This has been expanding for years on the Xbox/PS3 and I'm sure it will grow more on the upcoming systems. There's no reason they can't offer both ways to customers.
