EA Sports' FIFA on Nintendo Switch will be the most immersive, social, and authentic sports game ever created for Nintendo players
Thingis, Steam is a walled garden, even if the walls are lower than iOS etc. You have to play by their rules if you want into their garden.
So it's a tad hypocritical to complain about the concept of a walled garden.
"We get really frustrated working in walled gardens,".... Valve founder Gabe Newell said "UNLESS IT'S STEAM... Then it's AWESOME!", he went on to add.
VR is the future of gaming. Gabe, someone's already beat you to the reason to get a headset.
My only disappointment comes with the accessory pricing, which i'd still like to see come down a bit.
So when pc master racers say console games cost much more on consoles, they probably don't know that console games bought on a disc are resellable as opposed to the majority of pc games that are bought digitally for 30-ish at launch and the cost, even partial, is never recovered.
For reference, I am not taking sides here, just stating the fact.
There is nothing about Andromeda that screams buy me. And to think BioWare used to be master craftsman when it came to RPGs. Recently been playing Baldurs Gate 2 and Black Isle's Icewinddale Enhanced Edition. So, so good.
Another piece on Switch from Tom Philips that leaves out key pertinent information, namely that this won't be any sort of issue with the physical versions of software most of us will be buying
Just out of interest @George, what price point/software would it take to get you onboard with this?
I reckon £200-£220max. would be the sweet spot for me. Software looks to be the biggest hurdle, though...
Very few first party games.
Tumbleweed (as usual) where there should be third parties..
I like the look of Mario Odyssey, though.
Interestingly, Sony always seems to have the fewest good launch titles. But they always offer variety and appealing tech. (Nobody likes Battle Arena Toshinden now -- it's a weak game -- but there were a couple of months when that game was really impressive to people.)
Now I don't mean to pick a fight here - and you're CERTAINLY not the only one doing this here George - but honestly? An apology? For what exactly?
So the PS4 preowned games priced at 48 quid in Game are a figment of my imagination.
That has nothing to do with the console, but everything to do with the retailer's profit margins on pre-owned.
Many of the arguments people make against game streaming are similar to the arguments made when movie streaming services first started. But less than 10 years after those services really got going physical media is clearly on its last legs.
The kicker is the price: Nvidia is charging based on the time spent using the system, with costs starting at $25 for around 20 hours of gameplay. If you want access to more powerful Pascal-based hardware, you'll get fewer hours of gameplay.
Sorry, but a game which is sometimes fun, but overall an ongoing balancing saga, isnt GOTY.
How was movement achieved in that game you played? Were you in place with a motion sensing floor (rollers?) I'm pretty sure that VR Pod arcade was pretty expensive.
Cost is probably a good reason, as has been stated in this thread, it is pretty expensive for all of the hardware for VR. You and your mates would each need to have a computer and headsets to play together, and if you wanted to freely walk around you'd probably need one of those rolling floor things...
immersion doesnt necessary require high production value.
The people suggesting it's the next big thing are the same clowns who told us the Wii motion controls are the future.
Nah...it took over the world for about 3 weeks, then most realised how shallow and pointless it all was
It seems unlikely to me that PSVR is going to have legs as a platform. It's a VERY expensive peripheral. That means the % of PS4 owners who'll buy one and actively use it will probably never exceed low single digits.
You only have to look at things like Playstation Eye, Move, Kinect, Wii Board, etc. to see its likely trajectory - downwards.
No Man's Sky patch adds epic space battles
No Man's Sky just received a new patch on PC and PS4 that will make space battles vary in size.
"Players should see bigger battles," developer Hello Games noted in its patch notes.
To people saying "Just make Crysis 4. Just make good games. Just make another AAA monster title":
Great plan! All they need are the millions that it would cost to make said title. Millions that the company clearly doesn't have. Which is a shame.
Facts of course that don't exist yet. They probably will become factually correct at some point obviously. But not right now. Fact.
the big question is though, will it be enough to convince the masses to choose this over Pro which Sony will market as 4K and likely a lot lower price. I can see a smallish group of hardcore gamers appreciating the extra terraflops, but all Sony have to do is say also does 4K gaming and is £249 (vs Scorpio's £399 at best), and Microsoft's growth margin could be relatively small.
That will no doubt be the case, George, but you'll probably rip it to bits anyway.
Although, probably NOT quite as much as the pro, I suspect.
Just a hunch. 😉
Scorpio (unless it's specs are going to be trimmed back) will be > £300 more and 14 months late to the party
Not every fps game needs to be tactical, with realistic gunplay and bullet drop.
pew-pew-pew is just fine.
in what possible way, in what POSSIBLE way, would putting loading screens in make a game MORE appealing to a casual gamer.
A casual gamer would be even less inclined to tolerate loading screens than anyone, as they're unlikely to understand the technical limitations.
The Rogue One DLC doesn't quite go that far, but what it does is present a game mode that moves from aerial combat to ground warfare - and unlike the Death Star DLC before it that had a similar mode, the loading screens here are kept to a minimum, the transition now happening via a swift cutscene.
Any similar outrage for Diablo 3 on PS4? I own it on PS3, but am asked to pay full whack for the same game on PS4 (£60 on PSN).
There are 350+ comments and no one is suggesting that sales are down because the graphics aren't good enough.
And yet if you want to play some shockingly good locking PC games that you so clearly spunk off to (because having a more powerful system for fucking videogames somehow compensates for your lack of self worth), you'll need to buy the appropriate hardware.
What's your point, other than being an obvious (but still shit) troll?
WipEout Omega, viewed on the right equipment, looks shockingly good
"Its inventive and humorous ways to put down the dead are something I still haven’t tired of"
A brainless, buggy open-world game that's forgotten the second you put down the pad.
