I dislike EA's business practices as much as the next person, but this is a step way beyond that, and they should be called out for it. Then again, this company seems to be in a safe bubble that doesn't attract much mainstream attention. How long before that bubble bursts?

Digital Foundry: the best 2017 4K TVs for HDR gaming

I wanted to get either the Vizio M50-E1 or the TCL 49S405 (I'm on a budget of around £400 and wanted a 49-50" set on or around Black Friday). But they don't sell them over in the UK. Wondering what is actually a good alternative for Europeans looking to get a decent set on that kind of budget? As generally, the Vizio seems to be quite well regarded from what i've read for its HDR representation in relation to its price.

Fan project to get Zelda: Breath of the Wild running on PC shows remarkable progress

Baleoce

1 year ago

It's emulation. This is the same conversation we've been having for decades now. Nintendo can't shut down an emulator in and of itself. In the same way nobody is shutting down Kodi directly just because it allows the use of plugins like Exodus.

An emulator in general terms provides you with a piece of software that is capable of playing your backed up games on the emulators platform. Usually you are required to rip a bios file from *your* currently owned system (although not in all cases, for example if the bios has been completely reverse engineered by the emulator), and you are always asked by the T&C of the emulator to rip the game file from *your* currently owned copy of the game.

"But, in reality that's not what people do, they just download it from (insert popular rom site)" Sure they do. However, that doesn't mean that the emulation software itself is doing anything wrong. Only the user. Now if you want to debate it from a moral perspective, then we'll be here all day.

Most people here are pitchforking at the fact that BotW can potentially be played on PC so close to release without taking a step back and looking at the larger picture. In the grand scheme of emulation, nothing has changed.

I enjoyed their showing to be honest. It's obvious that their focus is shifting towards NX. Starfox looked like it had the gameplay charm of old, and a lot of people have been complaining about its looks. It looked fine to me, but I've never been fussy in that regard.

Just think about how much of their information leaked out before hand as well, so it didn't have much impact on us when we did see it. They'd have benefitted from keeping a tighter lid on that, and perhaps restructuring some of their Direct segments, leaving more of the developer talks for the treehouse stream instead, as so many people enjoyed this aspect last year, hence the overwhelming feedback they'd have received on it.

I think the nature of these events, especially for a platform that relies so heavily on its first party output to keep fans happy, is that you can't really bring your 'A' game to these kind of events every year. Sometimes things just aren't ready. I'm looking forward to hearing more about the NX platform next year though, I think it'll be good to mix things up and move on.

Special mention to John Choi for being John Choi. EVO provides once again.

Bit of an odd piece of music to pair with the gameplay trailer, but other than that it looks okay so far. The guns seem to have been omitted, (well, judging by this trailer anyway), and I think that's a good thing, as melee combat provides a lot more tension / amusement for this kind of game.

Hopefully the fact that day ticket customers pay exactly twice as much as the Virgin early entry folk means that there will be less congestion (that and due to the increased floor space), at least before the afternoon rush. Last years queuing was pretty awful. I don't mind paying more, but I do hope it's more organised in that regard.
