  • Someone's hit the Pokémon Go level cap

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 29/07/2016

    Well yes. Situation is improving. I also remember that when I was young playing videogames was something strange. Now you can talk with people about it as any other hobby. And it is really nic to see even girls and young ladies starting converstations about them.

  • Through gritted teeth, Star Citizen developer gives player whopping $2500 refund

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 15/07/2016

    "no longer constitutes the product I originally purchased".
    people still confuse crowdfunding with preorder services? When you support someone via kickstarter or any other similar service, you are not purchasing the product! You are just supporting their idea with hopes it may help the realize it.
    Thats how it works. It has lots of advantages and also dissadvantage. If you dont like it, it is not a problem. Just purchase it when available or prerder when preorders and online.
    Im really suprised any refund was issue at all. In my opinion no refunds should be available for crowdfunding at all. That is the whole purpose of it. By moving the risk of loosing money on the contributors, it allows funding more risky projects. If you remove this and allow refunds, what is the point?

    Before people back some project, they should read something about what they are actually doing. Not cry later that they did not understand the concept.

  • Reckon your RPG is nerdy about realism? Get a load of Kingdom Come: Deliverance

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 15/07/2016

    All of this is nice. But only if it is placed as a cherry on top great main core mechanisms. No matter how deep cothing system you create, no matter how detailed simualtion of food rotting is included and no matter how often do you need to wash yourself, all these features will not make good game by themselfs.

    And unfortunatelly, what was shown from the main game (figh system, AI,...) does not looks so good.

    From my point they are focusing on wrong priorities. So far their development precess fells like: "Development is going great. We already almost completelly finished main menu, creadits, manual and gui of them game. Once all of this is finished, we will jsut add a main game and we are finished."

  • VR is a revolution in control more than immersion

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 14/07/2016

    Well I can still imagine VR to become think in some Arcades etc. Where you go and enjoy the hight tech VR for few hours and leave. But I really doubt people will purchase this at home on mass scale.
    I can see it same as 3D movies. There is place for them in Cinema where you go and from time to time you enjoy the 3D movie in high-end imax cinema. But almost nobody in interested to watch 3D movies at home.
    This seems similar. It is nice gimmick. I can see myself to go somewhere and enjoy the full VR + Virtuix Omni etc for few games.
    I really not not imagine to buy that for home and play 250hours of Witcher with huge VR glasses on my head.

    Exactly. We heard the same thinks when Wii was released. And then Kinect was released. I still remmeber especially the Peter Molyneux speech how physical controllers are the biggest limitations in gaming and that now we can finally start enjoying the games, because we dont have to suffer pressing the buttons.
    We all know how it turned out :-D

    VR will be same. It wille be gimmick for a while. But comportable TV with controller will always win for mainstream gaming.

  • Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC out 26th July

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 13/07/2016

    A really hope the last DLC will bring some big lenghty story update. Otherwise the whole season pass is big dissapointment. 6 DLC and so far 4 out of five are workshop and settlement related? Lets hope that the final one wont be about building the theem park.

    The Fallout 4 seems more and more liek a concept demo for some other city building game that is under development and they are testing the ideas, concepts and engine here.

  • Holocaust museum pleads: stop playing Pokémon Go here

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 13/07/2016

    "why are you even going to the Holocaust museum if you're just going to play a damn phone game?"
    And these are mutualy exclusive? You can go to check the museum and still use your phoe right? I can imagine that if I would go there, during waiting in the line I would probably use my phone too. I would maybe check my mails. Maybe checked new articles on the eurogmaer. Would that be acceptable? The question "where is the line" is little tricky here.

    I doubt these people went there just to catch pokemons. But during the visit there, they probably had a spare time they wanted to kill somehow. Is playing pokemon minigame worst than checking mails? Taking photos? I mean how exactly was decided that this specific action is not acceptable?

    I could agree as unaceptable if these people went there with goal to catch pokemons ("the app led me here. Does not care what this place is about .Just got to catch them all") and bothered the other visitor ("hey can you pelase move a little. You are standing on my pokemon. HURRAYYY GUY!!! Got him"). But I really doubt it is this way. Seems like the problem "someone used phone to kill free time in wating lobby" is blown out of the proportions.

  • The brilliant Kerbal Space Program console release date

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 13/07/2016

    I dont think adapting controllers is a wrong way. They are still better suited for sofa+tv. And for some games (the ones that benefits with more analog inputs) they are even better (mouse + keyboard usually offers only two analog axis). Even games where you need to move and rotate object in three dimension (building spaceship from parts) can really have advantage with 6 analog inputs (2 triggers + 2x2 axis on analos) + touchpad + motion sensors instead of two (two axis of mouse movememnt)

    The main problem is how it is usually implemented. Mouse+Keyboard and gamepad are totally different input methods. But due to lazynes or budgets limits the porting of PC game is often done in the simplest way = "lets just use one analog to emulate mouse cursor". And that does not work well.

    But if you consider how many buttons you have on the gamepad (13 digital buttons, 2 analog button, 2 analog sticks, touchpad that can be touched or pressed and motion controls) it is more than enough for almost every game.
    The controls and gui just have to be redesigned for gamepad needs (menus not accessed by clicking the icon, but pressin button, redesigning menus to cirsulat format, letting you switch categories by bumpers,....) There are many ways how to make almost every function avalable just with two buttons or one button + analog stick.

    The main problems with ports is not a gamepad itslef. But that developers usually dont want to redesign whole guy and controls from the scratch. And just want you to use gamepad instead of mouse.

  • Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma is out now on PC

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 07/07/2016

    Just finished 999: The Novel (i know the full version is better, but Im not getting DS just for this).
    Today I will start VLR again (finished it 3,5 year ago, so I dont remember lot of the stuff.)
    Then Im really looking forward for this grand finale :-D This will be a lot of sleepless nights :-D

    I really love this series. The story is great mindf**k that actually make sense in its own universe (based on a lot of pseudo science, but all of it explained in such details, that it is easy to understand and believe. Sometimes I was even doing some wiki checks to ensure what is real and what is bs :-D). And it has one of the most original narative structures (it is worth playing just for this reason). It is fully using the interactivity of the media and a result is a story that can not be told in ony other way (you can not make a film or book, that will tell the same story with same impact on the reader)

    Not sure if they are getting harder and harder. But they are definetelly harder than the first one (that one was too easy). For example the last one was really challenging.

  • BioShock: The Collection resurfaces on 2K Games' website

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 30/06/2016

    Not for me.
    I really liked the first one. But than the quality kind of decreased.
    Second one felt like bigger DLC. Nothing special.
    Third one looked nice and first. But the Elisabeth did not lived up to the hype (I mean invicinble teleporting follower is not so much special) and story structure did not fit the game. In the first one I loved exploring the strange city and what happened. But due to the story structure of the third game this was almost not possible (there were several event, that basically thrown away everythign that happened).

    So I will skip this collection.

  • Steam game's Ł27 DLC is a PDF certificate

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 21/06/2016

    Honestly I dont have any problem with this DLC. It is upfront telling you, you will not get nothing. It is basically easy way to support the developer by optional non-mandatory donation (absolutelly nothing wrong about that!) that is done in original way that will grab attention.
    I mean - who in the right mind can complain about this? If you ignore it, you want loose anything. There are much worse DLCs like season passes (that goes on sale before first dlc is out = they trick you to pay more for nothing), locked content on the disc (blackmailing to to pay to unlock rest of the game), ending sold as a DLC (Prince of persia), etc. There should be riots and negative press reagarding these dlcs.

  • Witcher 3 patch 1.22 fixes floating body parts, beehive money exploit

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 21/06/2016

    Well. I know many people are praising the CDPR for their support etc.
    But on the other hand. I started playing cmoplete game from beggining. I did not reached the DLCs yet, so Im playing the vanilla content so far. Yesterday I updated to the latest 1.22 patch. And again (happened even befoe this patch), during one quest, the game stopped playing PCs voices (you heard, music, sounds, Gerald and that it is. NPC dialogue were just the silent subtitles).
    I mean - really? One year afte release we have still such bugs?

    People usually complain about Bethesda games. (honestly much more than about Witcher). But I dont rememeber Skyrim to be so buggy on the release date. Not alone after year of patching. :-(

    So hopefully this is not the final last patch. And hopefully the big bugs (like game stopping to play dialogues until restart) will be fixed too.

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole lets you play as a girl

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 21/06/2016

    Yes. it is PS4 version. I believe it is not available othervise (as far as I know you can not buy just the Stick of Truch on the PS4.). But as soon as you preorder (and pre-pay) the Fractured but Whole, the PS4 version is downloaded and you can play immediatelly.

    Agree. I actually prefer censored version. Honestly I have seen censored scenes on the internet. And tehy are not interesting or funny themselfs. Then censored screen on the other hand or nicely done full of satiric comments about state of the intusty. Much funnier and more clever than the scene it is covering.

  • Fallout 4 PS4 mods currently limited to 900MB

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 20/06/2016

    That is also a question. Because honestly biggest mods are the ones modifying graphics in some big way. But these will be mostly useless on consoles, because there is no spare power to mod it with 4x bigger textures, etc.
    So we will be mainly talking about gameplay mods. How big are these? Will we even reach 900MB fast? (honestly 900MB is bigger than whole Morrowind game!) So how many mods do you need to install to reach this limit?

  • 1080p Project Scorpio games "will look different" and some "run a little better" than on Xbox One/S

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 16/06/2016

    So far (according statements) it looks we will have a fight between:
    1) 6TFS console, that will use take game from less powerfull HW (X1) and use the additional power to just render bigger resolution but otherwise will have same graphics (if you downscale back to full HD the difference should be hardly noticable)
    2) 4TFS console (if they dont change the specs) that will take better looking games and use the additional power to improve the 1080p graphics even further.

    Well... it will be interesting fight and Im already looking forward for digital foundry comaprisons :-D

    Im still not sure what the fuss is about? From what I saw from this game, it looks nice. But nothing special. For me it looks like nice platforming game like Papo&Yo. Good small game. But not a title worth workshipping.
    Honestly - from all the gameplay videos - did they show something interesting? So i far I jsut saw platformer with sripted ratcat. Nice game to kill two evening and then sell to somebody else?

  • Microsoft's mixed messages at E3 aren't pretty for Xbox One owners

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 16/06/2016

    Seems MS still dont get why the Xbox360 was such a success. It was not a better HW (in most geenrations the weaker console won. I mean PS2 was not strongest. Wii was not strongest,... they dont need strongest console to beat competition).
    it was the games that were available only on that device (or at that time we believed they will be exclusive, because we did not have much experience about what "exclusive" means for MS)
    Now I know X1 still has few exclusive titles. But they are focusing only on few fransies and genres. We have a Forza. We have a Halo. And from time to time something else. I dont doubt these are great games if you are into that genre. But it is jsut not enough.
    When X360 was starting we got Mass Effect, Lost Oddysey, Blue Dragon, Beautiful Katamari, Gear of War (that were fresh at a time), Fable, Saints Row, Kameo, Too Human, Ace Combat, Viva Pinata, Shadow Complex and many other games that were "Xbox only" at that time. So the Xbox360 was a great purchase. There was not just a quantity of the game. But they were also diversive and the console was atractive no matter if you liked RPGs, JRPGs, Action, Racing, Kids Games,... some of these franchisese were even "stolen" under Sony nose (who would thought that Katamaray would be Xbox exclusive and that FF creator would make Xox exclusive JRPG?). They were not afraid to bring new IPs and ideas to move the industry forward. I mean Gears of War was great because it basically defined the whole genre. It worked for this reason. You can not repeat the success by copy pasting it again and again. If you want game that will get attantion of the players like Gears of War did, you can not achieve it by releasing Gears of War 4 with exact same gameplay.

    And this is something that is clearly missing on X1 now. If they dont bring such diversive exclusive games back to the platform, they can pimp the HW as much as they want. But people will stick with PS4+PC.

  • Xbox boss Phil Spencer: the big interview

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 15/06/2016

    This is poor decision imho. Bigger resolution is nice. But only if you are able to fill it with details. If you look at current games and what they put onto the screen (quality of the models, resolution of the textures, amount of details and object) there is still much to do even in 1080p. Especially in the open world games.
    If you take current console games and you have more power the more noticable change is if you just will the world will additional details, efects, flora, tweak drawing distance etc... it will bring much better results than using the power to draw the same game in 4k.

    What I mean is nicely visible in current gen remasteres liek Skyrim:
    with new consoles they got more power. They could use it to enhance the grafics with details, objects, textures,. effects. And it looks immediatelly better. What if they kept the old graphics and used the performance for 4K? Would anybody noticed the difference?

    And even best looking games are still far away from fully utilizing 1080p. So forcing them to 4k is just gimmick. But first lets use every last pixel of the 1080p with the rich details until you start using more please :-D
    What is the point of rendering the empty ground in better resoluuton if there is no grass on the ground yet?

    First one was really really fun and unique game. But kind of short.
    So I believe the price will be main factor when deciding if to get this. If they sell it for reasonable price, it will be day 1 for me.

    But many people bought whole game digitally and most of the peopble bought at least all DLCs digitally.
    So it would be nice to allow me to insert both of my gamertags (xlive+psn) to their system. And it could allow me to get discount at least for the content I bought digitally.

  • You can play the first level of the new Doom for free this week

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 13/06/2016

    True. The beggining is kind of simple with just the basics enemies. The true fun begins once you enter the Argent Tower and the game introduces bigger variety of enemies and start mixing them up. Then you are for a real threat.

    Imho its because companies dont care about total lifetime sales. But they need to report them "now". That is a reason why preorders are still so important. Why day 1 sales are so important to them (nobody reports on day 4 sales - even when income from such sale is same).
    So I guess the time limit is supposed to force people try it as soon as possible. So as many people will be ocnvinced to purchase full game during same week.

    Nice to see new IP.
    It is shame they did not show any gameplay. But considering it will be open world game, with super abilities, cartoonish graphics and silly story - it still feels they are building the game on SR4 foundations. Just placing it into another universe. But so far I expect the gameplay to be very similar.

    So at least they are moving it to different days and dont stick to a same schedule. Plus they extended the time frame to 72 hours. So the target should be still available even on Saturday morning. I would not call this mid-week :-D

  • The Witness gets an 8-bit demake

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 04/06/2016

    Go and try it. It is one of the best puzzle games (proudly standing next to Portal and Talos Principle).
    The game and puzzle concept is not just about looking for a path in a maze.
    The panels are usually not a puzzles itself (some are). But just interface to enter the solution of the puzzle that is somewhere else. And most he game could not be replicated in this "demake" for this reason.
    Difficult to describe without spoilers. But there is huge variety of the puzzles and it does not get repetitive.

    So far weakest Telltale series they made. I was regretting getting season pass for this one. So Im definetelly not getting these extra episodes this time.
    But it seems it was getting lots of money anyway because it is MC.
    The whole game just felt rushed.

    Hopefully their next game will be better.
