In Theory: Does PS4 offer VR its best chance at success?

Why no mention of RIGS? It's one of the upcoming VR games that seems to be the most accomplished yet I've seen very little coverage.

System Shock 2 still stands as Irrational's finest work

Heads up! Eric Brosius clarified the music stuff in SS2 a while back - it was actually Josh Randall who wrote the pulsing techno tracks, and Ramin Djawadi (of Game Of Thrones and Pacific Rim fame) who wrote the atmospheric stuff.

The Swapper review

binster

5 years ago

Yep, this is one of those games that could easily have ended up disappearing up its own (or it's clone's) arse, but thankfully the bedrock of gameplay and puzzling is top notch and the heavy subject matter is dealt with with a subtlety and lightness that works wonderfully.

Get stuck in!

Parents refused refund by Apple after son spends 1700 on free iPad game

@arcam "It's a sad situation when instead of condemning companies who take advantage, instead we condemn the victims for being duped. Stupid or otherwise, no one deserves a 1700 bill from Apple."

Yup. Seems lots of people in here have never ever ever made any mistake ever.

I dunno, I'm on the parents' side in this one I reckon. For a start, there's this line :

"In the US, Apple is now required by law to offer refunds in such cases involving children, following the lawsuit by another angry parent there."

...which makes sense to me. I mean, if you buy, say, a CD and then decide you don't want it your rights allow a refund, so why not something like this which is in error?

PlayStation 3D Monitor launched in UK

binster

@ToAks @arcam Fair enough.

Although considering that 3d is two different interwoven images that are 'sorted' by either coinciding with the left or right shutter on the glasses being open, there's no technical reason why any 3D TV can't support it.

I am prepared to be proven wrong on this, by the way :)

Slapped Down

binster

7 years ago

If you're doing something that may give offense, you should be able to give a good reason why you're doing it.

Case in point is Tim Minchin's Pope song - highly offensive but with a watertight reason for existing.

If Gearbox can provide a decent argument for including a bottom slap, then it's fine.

Caveat : I've not seen footage of, or played this bottom slapping thing, but if the argument for it is decent enough that shouldn't matter.

Rockstar shows amazing LA Noire tech

binster

7 years ago

Just to clarify, this isn't motion capture so much as surface capture - so the process is seemingly capturing, for every character, for every line of dialogue, for every frame of animation a complete face texture map and mesh object which are then streamed in game. I'm actually surprised this is on Xbox 360 as well, purely due to disk space issues. I'm guessing the texture streaming is doing some clever jpeg style compression and difference key-framing from one frame of face texture to the next.

Carpenter: "I don't buy Ebert's argument"

binster

@LHH : Interestingly enough the soundtrack to The Thing wasn't by Carpenter, but Ennio Morricone. He wrote loads of different music for the film, but Carpenter basically just took small bits of what he did and used them. The small bits he took basically being stuff that sounded like Carpenter's music anyway... :)
