with this type of game i suppose more is better for all?

if this is good i'll buy it and get more hyped for any further banner sagas. i'm not gonna convert to an Ash of the Gods fanboy.

i really like the look of this but the reviews were all over the place right?

you had even hardened dark souls fans saying "too hard and unfair"

EA has switched off Star Wars Battlefront 2's microtransactions

deepmenace

6 months ago

i mean this is just a live negotiation right?

they went in with a ridiculous high figure, they moderated it a bit and gamers still didn't bite.

they've retreated inside to re-group, they'll massage the figures and come out with something else. i bet some inside EA had a feeling this would happen.

now it's just a question of how many more rounds? and where is the middle that we finally meet?

as much as i love the idea of getting stuck into this the beta reminded me of my normal issue with GT and such sim level driving games:

i feel like a DS4 doesnt give me the granularity i need to really brake, turn and accelerate at that ultimate sweet spot. my cludgy hands have basically got 3 modes on an analogue control - on, off and between 40-60% on.

+

i don't really like the genre enough to splash out on a fancy steering wheel.

so i'm not really the target for it i think.

that said - i've enjoyed a couple of beta online races, i never would have thought battling for 13th place would be so much fun in anything.

Ataribox: Ouya 2.0, evolved Steam Machine or something more?

deepmenace

For example, Venturebeat's article says that "the machine can run the kind of games that a mid-range PC can do today, but it won't run triple-A games that require high-end PC performance"
?

are there actually games out there that will outright not run on a "mid-range pc"?
sure these "triple-A" high-end games just need their settings toned down?

No Man's Sky review

deepmenace

2 years ago

what i feared seems to have come to pass within this game. how to make something compelling after the secrets are out.

what i had hoped was for maybe some epic event triggers to happen...yknow, story related to things like:

planet destroying craft
earthquakes or other natural disasters
planets not shaped like planets
ancient abandoned cities...

that sort of thing - things that exist outside of the "algorithm"...more STUFF

Nintendo NX is powered by Nvidia Tegra technology

deepmenace

the only way this will succeed.

12+ hours battery life.
tiny form factor to the point of maybe using a bendable foldable display. i.e. 8inch screen that packs down to 4inch.

VERDICT - not yet i'm afraid.

Salt and Sanctuary review

deepmenace

Despite the monstrous homage this pays.... It feels like there is no way this would steal sales from From (!).

It feels almost like a companion piece, a starter, great fan fiction. Its whet my appetite for Dark Souls 3.

Steal sales from it? Nope.
Great publicity for it? Certainly.

so what? who cares?

are you enjoying yourself? You'll get a go at being imperial in the next game. The game is unbalanced already due to everybody being of different skills?

and sometimes its fun to play as Accrington Stanley vs. Liverpool.

it was a little and un-optimised feeling so i guess they didnt think it was worth it this time round.

im imagining a board table where they discuss the games to add to PS+.

there seems to be a large element of "how far can we push people?". i certainly have a large backlog of PS+ games that i want to get around to playing so they can afford to fob me off for a few months while i need access to those older releases...

question is, how hard will they push me?

i understand if there really was that few people playing... but, to be fair, servers with 4 spots open with a good ping where me plus 3 peeps could all play on the same side were always pretty hard to come by.

I get it but, as is the way with decent 4 player split screen co-op, now ive had it any less seems a step down.
