Judge recommends US Xbox 360 ban

Bloodhunter

@RinseWashRepeat think about it, if they asked for 5 % then the judge could be like "Oh they'll be kinda happy with 2% and MS will be happy they don't have to pay out much, by saying 100% it gives them the whole range as an option for payout, it makes perfect sense, and I doubt they have ever expected they will get that much.

I think this article has the wrong end of it - its not the microtransactions that are the main problem, its that CCP are neglecting the things that people are actually subscribed for.

@widge

shows how skewed review scores are now...

I feel like this is the most honest review i've read, other places have picked up on all the points mentioned in this review but merely said "you'll finish it in 5 hours, but it doesnt matter".. etc

was gonna get it on pc, decided not to the moment they announced the drm.

Metrospective: 4A Games vs. Digital Foundry

Bloodhunter

8 years ago

ukgamer, its not STALKER tech, and no one really rates the xray engine that highly.

also, KZ2 while looking good was only devloped for one platform, with the financial backing of sony, I'd say most of this game was developed solely by 4A, who I doubt are bigger than 80 people, so its a damn fine engine for so little people, compared to the 300 or so that worked on KZ2

edit: 130 it is then Widge :)

but anyway, productivity increases exponentially per person in the team I guess?

Seeing as its an nVidia technology cian, I would guess not.

I just bought a 5770, so heres hoping I'm wrong.

Good to know. Xray engine is a bit like the source engine, they can only keep propping it up with new bits for a while, yet theyre determined to carry on with it because they are so used to it.

GT5 damage model lacks impact

Bloodhunter

9 years ago

I think it could be because of the number of cars that the damage models arent so detailed, the reason that GRID could afford to have such detailed models for every car, was that there was only 58 cars.

Anyway, they still have time...

Fallout 3 time-lapse video special

Bloodhunter

9 years ago

stalker would be interesting i agree ACCH

other than seeing how well it runs and how good it looks, were there any other purposes to this?

It would be interesting to post a comparison video of this and some of the early gameplay trailers/videos that were released

also the mp4 video you posted on megaupload, is that meant for playing on 360/PS3 only? or is it too high res for my laptop to handle, it seems to lag out realplayer, vlc, quicktime whenever i try to play it, only vlc can play it and even then its badly synced

Media Manipulation: the "Bullshot" phenomenon

Bloodhunter

9 years ago

I don't mind whether they're upscaled (except in the case of Jak 3 on PS2, where the screenshots were totally disproportionate), I would like to be told though rather than have to work out I've been tricked.

I think being a mainly PC gamer you don't have these kind of problems, because of the phenominal power developer's computers have so they don't need the upscaling, it is how it is.

Only problem is if you have a crap PC then you're never going to get those kind of results at a playable framerate ever.

APB requires no monthly subscription

Bloodhunter

Might be the first MMO I get, without the feeling I HAVE to play it to make up for the subscription it allows me to dip in and out.

I would prefer it came out on the PC first then ported, PC games to console go better than console to PC...

Microsoft changes Indie Games pricing

Bloodhunter

9 years ago

i feel sorry for dev's, as to make a xbli game it still costs a reasonable amount of money and to have your games price halved without your choice is really harsh

it is just a startup thing though

steam is a better option for indies though i think, you get to choose your own price, and you arent restricted in what tools you use
