Perpetuum Online

I'im not sure how this will work if you are out solo and get blobbed. In EVE you can jump through the gate and make a run for it, or warp to a safe spot. In this game it looks as though it will be more brutal as you won't really have any chance of getting away. Mechs better come cheap! Having said that, sounds interesting!

Real-time HD video encoding on PS3?

Wolfman

9 years ago

I would have thought that the quality of the video encoded is a function of how well the encoding software is written rather than which hardware it is running on. I see no reason why a decent encoder running on the CELL hardware cannot give you high quality video. At that point you can start comparing speeds to see whether its faster using the unusual architecture or whether it is faster on the PC. Until then comparison is pointless.

Alien Breed is trilogy, out October

Wolfman

Large scale computer games like Assassins Creed cost around 20 million to make and around 10 million to market. 2.5 million is pretty paltry compared to "proper" games, but considering its only going to retail over digital distribution, thats an awful lot of money.

I want a more simmy mechwarrior game like Mechwarrior 2. Please no dumbing down! The mechwarrior 2 interface even had "dH/dT" as one of the labels on the interface. Genius!

Chaos Gate? Awsome game. Loved it to bits and still have it hanging around somwhere. Always wanted a remake/sequel of it. The PSP warhammer game just didnt have the continual character progression so never bothered with it.

Treyarch explains PC patch process

Wolfman

9 years ago

Im not defending Treyarch because I think COD5 is awfull.

... but having said that if they rushed out a patch really quickly and it was just as buggy as the original verion you lot complaining about the lack of patch now would just complain about how bad the patch was. Things take time to fix and go through the cogs of a large company.

Of course they should have just released a game that didn't require a patch in the first place ...

THQ man angry about Iron Lore closure

Wolfman

10 years ago

I agree with Fitch's arguments. Its not idiocy to crash the game to desktop if its a pirated version. You don't want pirates playing your game full stop. However even doing a "silent" change to a game will still generate people complaining about the game.

Imagine your copy protection makes a game slow down gradualy over time if its a pirated version; Imagine if you adjust the quests so that you can't complete the side quests; Imagine you change it so that it never drops uber magic weapons. Now everyone that pirates the game is going to complain that your game is buggy because it slows down, the side quests are crap and that the weapons you pick up are rubbish.

Developers can't win against pirates thats what the problem is! Its a loss-loss situation. Now don't tell me that piracy isn't a bad thing! Ok im not saying piracy was the reason that IL closed because I don't know but it may have been a factor. Whatever the outcome its never a good thing!

MGG has it spot on.

Plus films & music don't have to subsidise hardware that gets sold for less than the manufacturers make them for (apart from the Wii!).

Im probably going to get lynched for saying this but when I played Rez on the PS2 I just got bored. Within about 5 minutes.

Yes its got very nice music intergration with the gameplay. Unfortunately I found that the gameplay sucked. I can admit that the game has a great style, just not the gameplay to go with it.

I always pull out the old amiga to play Sensi with my bro every christmas. I also downloaded the demo of the 360 version. I have to say unless there was a major change in game speed between the original SS and original SWOS then the 360 version is much faster and much harder.

Using the amiga joystick is somewhat easier than the dpad on the 360 though, but I couldn't just pick up and play it like the amiga version. Perhaps I've just spend too many hours on the original version and thus any small change throws off my skills but it just didn't feel right. Im disappointed. :(

I thought Homeworld was great. Then I played Nexus: The Jupiter Incident and realised that Homeworld wasn't all that great. Though Nexus had its own problems it didn't matter as the gameplay was brilliant.

I want Nexus 2, not Homeworld 3!

"Light will play a large part in the new game, too, making entering dark buildings from bright outside environments (and vice versa) a serious consideration when factoring in the time it takes for your eyes to adjust to each new setting."

So thats just HDR done properly then? Thats not exactly groundbreaking.
