    Hmm wondering if i should cancel my collectors edition and just buy some pringles and eggs and make my own, because that looked high quality. Reply +7

    The sooner the software industry is forced to follow warranty legislation the better.
    @Murton I think you have missed part of the problem here, what if your game hasn't made lots of cash and you have to pay a ton of cash to patch it... and i'm not talking dev time here, but you have to pay MS/Sony to patch your game.

    To me that part of the problem... its actually a negative to patch a game because it costs a lot of money.

  • An hour with Randy Pitchford

  • makeamazing 24/07/2015

    @GAmbrose haha yeah It's certainly not canon :)

    But yeah I totally agree with you. I'm just making the point (albeit poorly) that in movie terms it wouldnt be the first story to change everything around etc, don't think games need to be an exception in this case.

    But I agree CM was crap, and I was unfortunate enough to buy the collectors edition for 80 @_@

    Not just the 'Hicks is still alive' rubbish, but also the fact that in Aliens Atmospheric Processor went nuclear and blew the fuck out of Hadleys Hope.
    @GAmbrose In the new Aliens movie (2016/2017?), Aliens 3 didn't happen, hicks and Ripley are still alive floating in space, so the whole retro fitting is happening in movies, i think it can in games.

    But. the game was trash. It's possible some of the things he is saying is the truth, that development is hard and he doesn't want to blame someone on the team(s)... but ultimately he should just accept that the general consensus is that the game wasn't that good.

    Some bad voice acting and some bad writing.....

    Game looks like it could be interesting though.

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider hits PS4 "holiday 2016"

  • makeamazing 23/07/2015

    I'm thinking this game will not sell very well... especially with the same release date of FO4 and Battlefront near it.

    I can definitely wait past the 2016 holiday until it drops in price... after supporting the previous game twice (PS3/PS4 on day 1 i may add) I will not be rewarding SE with my business day 1 on this title.

  • Looks like there's a Dead Island: Definitive Edition

  • makeamazing 22/07/2015

    Yeah I think you've hit the nail on the head... it's a stop gap release to generate some cash i would think. Reply +15
  • Star Citizen, feature creep and money

  • makeamazing 21/07/2015

    For someone who didnt back it, I have to admit that trailer video looked awesome.

    Is the main complaint that it's taking too long then? because as I said from that video it looks like the ultimate space game, and that would take a while to make, but who wouldnt want it.

  • Dead Island 2 is no longer being made by Yager

  • makeamazing 14/07/2015

    Crap thats bad.

    When i saw the interview last year about no narrative and just random missions, I was like what muppet made that decision.... but still was hopeful that was just a poor dev diary rather than the actual state of the game.

    I think after seeing Dying light and then seeing this game with just random missions, perhaps they've decided it's going to kill dead island as a franchise and need to make a story based game... hopefully the tech they have is in an ok to state to put a game around it.

    After Deep Silver basically told techland in no uncertain terms they were not going to work on DI2, seems like a bit of karma for them, they go and make a critical/commercial game and DI the game that started it all has dropped into trouble.

  • Surprise! Prototype game bundle released for Xbox One today

  • makeamazing 14/07/2015

    Got both 1 and 2, 1 I have never played and 2 is still sealed on PS3. Not sure I would get the PS4 versions unless they were significantly upgraded (which doesn't sound like they are). I really need to get my backlog sorted :( Reply 0

  • Don't call the new Hitman an early access game

  • makeamazing 09/07/2015

    To me this reads as:

    1. we didnt make enough money to justify a next full version of the game.
    2. We don't have enough money to make the next full version of the game.
    3. If we make it early access, episodic we can see if people care enough for the game.

    Personally I won't buy into it because who knows what content you'll get and when/if they stop developing if they don't make enough money.

    Think I'll wait for the disc based version that comes along later (if they make enough content).

  • The BBC is giving a tiny computer to every year 7 child in the UK - for free

  • makeamazing 07/07/2015

    Just throwing tech/hardware at the children isn't terribly useful.
    @ShiftyGeezer - exactly. I used to work in a company that used to go to education shows a few years back... it's amazing what you learn about the education system. At that time smart white boards became a thing. The amount of money wasted on a smart board because it would engage students more was just ridiculous. Government backed it as well with a lot of money. They were throwing millions at it, did it improve education... not one bit.

  • makeamazing 07/07/2015

    @ShiftyGeezer At my middle school a long time ago, we had a single BBC computer and that was it. The computer bus used to come around once or twice a year.

    I would definitely agree that the home computers were where it was at. I mean the Spectrum had sold a bucket load before we even got computers in my high school (in my final year).

    The question is did the odd computer in schools motivate kids to get their parents to go out and buy a home computer. That is impossible to say. For me I would say computer magazines had more sway for me than school in terms of being excited about computers.

  • makeamazing 07/07/2015

    Not all parents can do that though sadly. It is great that schools will offer this and grant more people the opportunity.
    @mattshark - and that is the point i'm trying to make (albeit poorly). If your child isn't interested in this type of thing, they will take it home and it will probably end up in the bin.

    @MrRockyRaccoon - well hopefully you can buy one as an individual from somewhere like the Raspberry pi.

  • makeamazing 07/07/2015

    If they did that though, a lot of kids who might be talented would be missed and it would likely only end up supporting those who don't need support.
    @mattshark - well the point of the talented and gifted system is to identify what subjects and areas the kids are talented in. It's not like the kids don't already have computing classes etc.

    Also there is an element of parent involvement in knowing what your kids like and helping them where possible to pursue their interests.

    Personally I am just not a big fan of a shotgun approach to education.

    @Mustberger you know what I meant, lets not get all pedantic about it :)

    Hey look I was only explaining why other people might not be happy about it... don't know why people are giving me a hard time about it.

    I have three kids in schools and I know very well how poor and under funded the education system can be at times.

    Is 1m devices a good spend... sorry it's not. The BBC (or whoever is funding it), would be better off using the "Talented and Gifted" system to identify those who are interested in computing and reward them with it, as they are most likely to benefit, rather than most of these devices getting lost or binned.

    It's like the idea to get all children programming... that's like trying to get all children to be fluent in french. Pointless.

    @CoburnAlpha Schools promote the use of the Pi in school work (coding etc), meaning kids will go off and get their parents to invest in it. This is much better than a random throw something at everyone and hope it sticks to some.

    Teaching has always been about trying to get kids excited about stuff, but also about individuality. Just buying one for every kid is a total waste of money. Better to invest that money in getting better equipment and resources for those that are interested... and spending money on what excites those other kids.

  • makeamazing 07/07/2015

    @Pythonidae I don't think thats why people are questioning it. They are a public paid for TV channel, and I think they are questioning why they are spending that money on IT related services.

    Not saying its right or wrong as I am from the generation from when the original BBC came out which really inspired me to get into computers, but this isn't really needed now the Raspberry is already massive in UK schools.

    I think its a mix of Spore and Elite, and thats perfect for me. People might complain that it's boring, but when I played the original Elite way back when, it was all about making money and just doing what you wanted, this is no different just on a much bigger scale :0)

    Cannot wait, hope it comes out this year.

  • Project Cars boosts visuals - and runs faster

  • makeamazing 21/06/2015

    Really like these videos, nice to see optimisations still taking place after the games launched. You could complain it shouldnt have been launched in an less optimised state, but still good to see it happening.

    Note is anyone else getting very long adverts at the start of the video that's nearly as long as the video itself, it's been happening a lot recently and putting me off watching videos.

    When the guy was doing the movement, it moved back before he had done the hand action... you think they would have learnt from the previous Kinect fake E3 shows...

    As for tech its interesting but very limited imho for games... and using it with Minecraft.. which is a large proportion of kids playing it, this will be out of their price range. Such a confusing message from MS on this holowlens system.

    Edit: Probably should have known that I would get negged for this... but just watch the video above it's right there in the video, or the kinect videos, or the cloud stuff... I mean come on, don't be so "fanboy" blind that you take everything you are told as the truth.
