The enduring appeal of Nintendo's StreetPass

J0rdan_KZ

3 years ago

Having been to two Zelda concerts in London, I can attest to the madness that is gaining hundreds of streetpasses within the space of a few hours. Plus, their recent international streetpass week was excellent too, where I managed to get people from all over the globe. Streetpassing is excellent in large cities, but I literally live out in the sticks and I barely get anything, ever.

I carry my 3DS with me a lot, but I mostly have to rely on play coins for puzzle pieces and such.

Call me a god damn hipster, but Rez is probably still my favourite game of all time. It hit at the perfect time in my life and on probably my favourite console ever.

I still wish that Rez HD would come to PC, but I doubt that'll ever happen

What you're paying for here is convenience and form factor. If you built many of these machines yourself, it would be much cheaper... But Steam machines aren't aimed towards most of the current Steam user base.

Ubisoft deactivating keys it says were "fraudulently" obtained and resold

J0rdan_KZ

4 years ago

If keys are legitimately 'illegal' as in, stolen from Ubisoft... Fair play. After all, that's theft.

However, region locking serial codes or removing keys from savvy consumers, is essentially bull shit. It's not my problem you're charging almost £50 for a digital copy of a PC game that I can get cheaper elsewhere.

Absolute madness.

If there was ever a game that needed an full 'modern' sequel on PC it would be Theme Hospital.

It's a shame that if one was commissioned, we'd probably get an IAP ridden mess on iOS and Android instead. Yay, modern 'gaming'.

@StooMonster Since this game isn't being developed or funded (fully, or in part) by Apple, then it's a third party title.

Your Forza logic simply doesn't apply here. This is entirely down to the developers choice of platform.

Super Smash Bros. creator says Wii U version is likely his last

I hardly consider this to be a surprise. Sakurai has been working his ass off for several years now, without much of a break (Kid Icarus, straight into Smash Bros).

Still, who the heck could replace the guy? Planning these games must be a logistical nightmare. So many properties, teams and companies involved. Regardless, whatever he does next, I'm sure it'll be special.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions review

J0rdan_KZ

4 years ago

It's pretty clear that the original composer wasn't involved in this game. The soundtrack isn't half as catchy, the effects themselves lack the 'pop' that was ever present in GW2.

It's a good twin stick shooter, but it sure as hell isn't the successor GW2 deserves.

@Ferx Thanks for the suggestion. Even on everything at the lowest possible settings, I get stutters.

Running the PC version here, even with an insanely powerful machine, it stutters all over the shop.

Not only that, but using SLI introduces a bug that makes the shadows so dark at night that you literally cannot see a thing. How the hell did that pass QA?!

To get the game to a playable state, I had to put everything onto the lowest possible settings and lock it using VSync, then disable my second 780Ti. A complete and utter shambles.

I know it's still early days, but many in the "non-core" market (i.e.: CoD/Madden etc. players) seem to be backing the PS4 this time, rather than the XBOX One.

Makes you wonder if Sony are going to start running away with this one.
