Left Joy-Con issues resolved for future units, Nintendo claims

@kangarootoo There has already been a breakdown and there is not much difference between the two.

All the repaired units have in them extra as well is a tiny bit of conductive foam to help isolate the receiver from interference inside the joycons from that dodgy batch.

I played five indie games on Switch and they were all good

Masaroth

1 year ago

As someone who is increasingly finding the latest AAA games incredibly bland and boring, I'm thinking that the switch might become the most played console if it can keep up with releasing interesting more unique experiences rather than identikit open world sandbox 55. I'm fed up of icon overloaded maps of repetitive things to do!


Will still keep the xbox around for the few games that come out that are still of interest, next up is prey but I'm not sure when the next AAA game i would actually buy is out

Steam users warned after profile exploit discovered

Quite concerning that valve coders have left them vulnerable to this, its one of the most common exploits around and they should be getting penetration tests from an external provider yearly to ensure that they are not. If they are vulnerable to this i wonder what of the other basic attack vectors they are open to.

I really enjoyed outlast+dlc and super looking forward to the sequel but I'm not convinced by this. As a downloadable spin off i could see it working but i have no idea how they will keep the gameplay fresh enough over the course of a full retail release. It just seems as though a team at Capcom was developing a random horror game and the execs thought, you know what will make it sell more, lets slap the resident evil name on it.

With xbox rewards you also get up to 10% of a digital purchase put into you accounts credit, so combining the both would bring it up to 20% which is not too bad if you go all digital. Certainly better than nothing.

New Mirror's Edge world record speed run sure is dizzying

Masaroth

4 years ago

While the main campaign was fairly short if you just played through story mode, the main game for me was trying to beat the level speed runs. They required you to carefully plan out routes and then execute a near flawless run and were great fun trying to beat especially when you discovered a new route that would allow you to save time and keep momentum up. So this speed run is really impressive.

Two discs "wasn't practical" for Halo: Master Chief Collection

Masaroth

4 years ago

Sounds to me like the xbox one does not currently have a way in the OS to deal with a install disk. So they had two choices one disk for SP and one for MP that you have to change depending on what you want to do, or a 20GB content update and have it all run of the one disk. Out of the two options i personally would prefer the update seeing as i have a internet connection that can handle it but i can see why its not ideal for some people.

@arty so its closed because they only take developers with a proven track record? Why would microsoft let everyone in, when they give out dev machines and other bonuses. If they allowed everyone in then you would just end up with everyone not even devs signing up just to get there hands on two free xbox ones.

Once they enable retail xbox ones dev machine functionality im sure they will open up the program a lot more to take anyone.

EA teases Mirror's Edge ahead of E3

Masaroth

4 years ago

Mirrors edge was one of my favorite games last-gen and i am nervous about what kind of game they announce. For me it was never really about the story, it was more a racing/puzzle game where you had to figure out the quickest way to make it through the level, keeping your momentum high at all times. The speedruns of the story missions was what kept me playing for so long.

Still remember trying to get the speedrun achievement for the i think third level (one where you go down into the drainage system), it had a stupid time that seemed impossible to meet but after hours of trying for that perfect run to beat that time, i actually ended up with 7th globally for it without intending it. As long as the new ones can scratch that itch ill be happy.

How Thief has changed, for better and for worse

Masaroth

4 years ago

Sounds like my fears about the map design being streamlined are right. I don't want to play a thief game where i essentially travel down a straight line where my options are say shoot the guard with an arrow or bypass them via some means. They aren't really choices.

I was stupidly hoping that they would have kept the normal thief level design where you get chucked into a mini sandbox, where you can go about the level as you please, using stealth and your tools to achieve you objectives while hunting down interesting secrets.

Fixing Forza 5: How Turn 10 wants to win fans back

Masaroth

4 years ago

It just seems like this guy cant win. Comes out and explains the reasoning behind their decisions and that steps are being taken to make the mob happy and gets even more vitriol directed at him.

Personally don't see why forza5 gets all the hate. The game doesnt force any micro transactions on you. You get lots of money from just playing, you earn about 100-120k per hour. Just about finished the beginner set of races and have over a mil in the bank and a load of cars for future events already bought. The cut features are disappointing, especially the tracks but im fine with it as i hardly expected a huge track and feature list when the project was greenfield. Things take time to code and model, you dont have the luxury of infinite amount of time to get everything just as you want.

Thief's XP system culled due to negative fan feedback

Masaroth

5 years ago

Good decision by the devs but not enough to sway me into thinking this will be a good thief game. I'm sure it will likely be a good enough game in its own regard but the levels seem too predetermined and a reboot of story means none of the previous games seem to have happened (no Hammerites, Pagans, Keepers or Mechanists factions).

In the original two (and kinda the third), you were dropped in a fairly open level with a very basic sketch map and then left to your own devices to navigate around to find and complete your objectives. In the new thief with fixed rope arrow locations and jump spots it seems that rather than having a playground of sorts, you are just going to have say two different routes across the map that the devs have coded for.

Microsoft still hopes for Xbox One digital game trading

Masaroth

5 years ago

@zuul

They wouldn't do that, as its still open to abuse, if it was still the previous system of retail disk = digital.

I could buy a game and load it on my machine to active it as digital copy to play, then i could give the game to a friend who could then unplug his console and play the game offline. So one disk has two people playing at the same time.

The only way i can see them going about this without a massive backlash, is just to keep digital and retail two separate environments.

You buy a disk from a store, things are exactly the same as this gen. You put the disk in the console and play the game though you get none of the benefits or disadvantages of a digital copy.

You buy a digital copy you get all the digital benefits they are talking about. Seeing as retail disks do not equate to digital copies there will be no need for a 24hour check in or any other perceived negatives to handle this. They would work like XBLA/GOD games with extra benefits.

Xbox One won't support external storage at launch

Masaroth

5 years ago

500GB for both consoles(Although I imagine only about 400-450GB will actually be usable) should be more than enough for just games. All other media will go on a 2TB NAS.

Why in this day and age of having multiple device, would anyone want to store there media on local storage that only one device can access is beyond me. Surely you would want to be able to acess all you media for all your devices and for it to have redundancy in case of a HDD failure.

Masaroth

I would assume that MS would announce anything like this at the tokoyo game show, and the delay for the console over there would be due to them trying to get together a launch line-up that would be more appealing to that market. At least that would be the sensible way to go about things.

Been playing the beta for a couple of days now, and so far not really had to worry about the f2p elements. The only things the premium currency can pay for is alternative models and a membership that is quite frankly very expensive, but all it really does is give you an extra bit of loot with every quest. The rest thus far has been thoroughly enjoyable without having to pay a penny.
