No doubt the prices will be directly translated to even higher ones just like they all are at the moment. The 480 is supposed to be 199USD But it's selling for 250GBP ... Ridiculous! Same for green camp

I hope that this doesn't effect GamesTM in a negative way. I drifted away from EDGE years ago (read it since issue 1) as I found it so pretentious and up itself. GamesTM on the other hand was brilliant and a combo of what edge used to be and the classics like CVG and others.

So they own it in the context of a title that has no reference to satellite television? It should laughed out of the court. Corporate greed/bullying lawyers and idiotic wate of space judges are to blame.

@nagi I agree. Copyrighting s made up name that has it been used before would be fine but to claim ownership of actual words of the English language is bullshit.

A quick Google reveals a PC game called Oracle, jewels of the oracle and more.

Absolute f'ing rubbish evil!

Sky do not own the word Sky end of... I use it all the time. It's is used in titles for songs, books editorials, lyrics. Next they will be suing people for using the word Sky in a context that could be perceived as negative toward this stupid corporation.

Maybe they will get the English language changed so that the description of the space above us is no longer called sky but something else unless every English speaking country coughs up or changes its appearance and use in every conceivable context.

What about:
Skyrim?
Sky Landers
I'm sure there are many many more! But I'm not going toft through the 43,000+ games that have been made since the 70's

I can't believe that they 'have' to do this. To spend three years harassing (because that's what it is - there is no way anyone would ever get the two confused and associate them with each other) a small indipendent developer is a perfect example of corporate bullying. Money is power etc.

I suppose there is a small chance people could get confused. James Bond: Skyfall was, after all a movie about the fall of Rupert (I'm a greedy corporate monster) Murdochs British satellite TV empire? Wasn't it or am I mistaken? /end sarcasm

Are 4K visuals really the best use for Project Scorpio and PlayStation Neo?

Caimbeul

2 years ago

Having experienced 4K gaming it does indeed look great but the power required to achieve it would much better utilised in making 1080p games smoother, more detailed and complex etc. 1080p is the sweet spot for gaming. TV-wise 4K is definitely strumming and the way to go once players come WAY down in price and there is much more content out there. But a good quality 1080p screen is still excellent. In short 4K isn't essential for gaming. Scorpio's focus is wrong. Microsoft messed up on the first iteration of XBO and is making another here. If it was a VR focus send machine that would be a different matter

I agree with many of the comments regarding design. I think the concept sounds good but games going out to survey to help with the design I think is not that great. I know it happens but it should not be a driving force, I think this is the 2nd such survey for ME:A
If it is purely for marketing then fair enough but if it is to influence design direction then Boo!

I'd rather buy the full game than have a stripped down free version. Forza on PC in DX12 would be amazing. They should not do this support for the PC half heartedly - didn't the latest tomb raider outsell the XBO version by 6-1? There's good reason to bring FULL Xbox blockbusters to PC.

Sony responds to claim PS4 used for terrorist communications

All these bullshit articles do is highlight shit journalism an desperation for content. They say a ps4 may have been found at one of the addresses... So what, maybe they played games? You don't see headlines making a big deal out of unregistered pay as you go mobiles found and then attacking mobile phone companies for making anonymous use of mobile phones relatively easy? Or they found a TVs at the property, clearly he was influenced by watching (insert US show of choice with middle eastern terror plot). Maybe it was used as a comms tool, maybe it wasn't but you know what? Now they have openly told the world that ps4 comms are very difficult to monitor, I think it's usage for illegal activities with rise significantly. Idiots

Street Fighter 5 sparks "censorship" debate

Caimbeul

2 years ago

@MrTomFTW is that not just self censoring? The removal of the but slap is the only thing that irritates me in so much that it was clearly an aesthetic/design choice at the start to dress her that way and make a feature of the exposed buttocks as part of her special move, character and flamboyance. To remove it seems silly and landers to the handful of people offended by some moderately exposed buttocks. I personally think that the change in framing is a negative purely from a visual aesthetic and a poorer composition as a result. Removal of the splits I think was the right choice however.

I think the key to understanding the change is knowing the reason behind it. If they did it to be safe, they have self censored. If they did it for design reasons I think it's a mistake. Either way we will never know the truth. Capcom will never admit to pandering to whingers about a minor bit of exposed female flesh. How many topless male fighters and characters are in games? Don't hear anyone morning about that!

Pretty much spot on. Don't resent a moment of it! However, with some very crude math, my steam catalogue of 273 games has around 1 fifth completed, not including my console game collection and my other principle hobby AND the new releases as they continue to arrive, i may never get to finish them all short of winning the lottery and playing when they are at school!

The Withcer 3? Id love to pla it, it looks incredible but that alone will not take me 200hrs, it will take me a decade! I too am now a big an of short intense bursts of entertainment. Max Payne 3 was a blast and i managed to finish it with relative ease in around 10hrs if memory serves...
