Intel's Core i7 with Radeon RX Vega graphics: full specs revealed

L0cky

4 months ago

I don't think this Intel / AMD relationship will last long (contracts aside). AMD announced a new range of AMD ryzen APU's today and sound like they're finally ready to compete directly with Intel again, perhaps even beating them to 12nm and 7nm.

Just like this article we'll have to wait for the benchmarks, but it's interesting times, I might even consider AMD for my next laptop for the first time in 15 years.

Going even further back, Quake 3 was crossplay between pc and Dreamcast.

I think the first here though is crossplay across a wide range of platforms.

I think it had 2 puzzles that were pretty much impossible but iirc they were specifically designed for crowd sourcing (ie reddit) so didn't feel bad about looking them up on the internet after I finished everything else.

Some of the other puzzles are so satisfying to get by yourself in a way I hadn't seen in a decade. The one with the telescope for example, I was like 'it would be so cool if doing this did something but it can't possibly be... oh wow'. They're the kind of puzzles where you feel your talking with the designer somehow.

Kinda like the older Zelda games.

The only game I know of that McMillen didn't release is Mewgenics. It was an interesting idea that they couldn't make fun, so fair enough.

Aside from that he's created, collaborated on, and released over 50 games, making him possibly the most prolific indie developer.

PlayStation E3 conference report: No Neo, no mic drop, but games to spare

L0cky

2 years ago

I don't own either current gen console yet ( had both of the last, no allegiances), but I thought Sony had a really strong showing.

No megatons, because they don't need them. There's a certain confidence in just showing what you have without needing the extra hyperbole.

Vr might convince me to go with Sony, despite the fact it will obviously be less technically capable than what's already available, the fixed hardware (no pukey fiddling with settings) and what they showed will probably make it the most successful 1st gen consumer vr product.

They also consistently showed games I fancy playing. Never played a Kojima game because I always felt I was too late to the party, so a new IP is perfect.

The Last Guardian finally coming, I first played Ico about 11 years after it was released and loved it, so the dev time is about right :p

Then there's David Cage. He's had his alpha and his beta. Detroit could well be the game he's been striving for - I certainly hope so. I definitely like the concept.

You cancelled a pre-order for a game you want to play because someone else get's to play the game...
Which is pretty much my stance on exclusives, especially when the leading platforms now have such parity.

It's just ironic that it's being said by the same guy that announces exclusivity on stage and pauses to wait for the applause.

The Fallout fan made to destroy his records for a refund

L0cky

This story shines a stark light on materialism. The cost of shipping the discs back, locating a spare one and repackaging it is greater than the cost of manufacturing a new set; because after all, it's just a cheaply made plastic mould.

What was that $125 getting you again? Oh yes, the words "Limited Edition" printed on a piece of cardboard.

Plastic tat is just that.

The brilliant music on the other hand, comes with the game and only costs a few quid on Steam.

@Tackli I think it's actually for immersion, I remember seeing a talk about it from some VR devs - even rudimentary arms/hands are a lot more immersive than having none.

Looks funny in a non VR video though; maybe they should have an option to hide them for trailers.

@technotica I think the sentiment was that Nintendo will do this rather than they should do this.

Despite IronSoldier's overly smug comment, it does vindicate those comments that were mostly ridiculed at the time.

Interesting that they announce this in the same week Sony announced they were closing their own mobile platform down. Nintendo are behind the times, or Nintendo can do it better?

I see EG just updated the article so the announcement of a new Nintendo console is the headline rather than a footnote, as it should be :p

It does sound like it will be a Nintendo Xperia Play though...

@MTM2 I'm guessing it's the start of a trend. Why are you bothered by EG informing you that a game may have a lower quality than you would expect; surely this is a good thing?

Even if this is only a one off, publishers of other games will take note that they might not be able to just get away with it any more.

It's a shit ton better than embargod reviews with promises of non existant day one fixes to persuade reviewers to overlook issues.
