Apple iPhone X review

@space_ace Here's a high-end Android phone that you can get for the price of the iPhone X and a holiday. Or two of the phones... https://oneplus.net/uk/5t

I guess the question is: Is the iPhone X worth twice the price?

Is the 'My face hurts' line still in?

The Xbox One version crashes on the 'Accept Agreement' page. So, this is all just hypothetical for me.

Here's everything that's new and noteworthy in the leaked Project Cars 2 trailer

The original is coming to Games With Gold on the 16th. I was about to buy it too.

Should I get my hopes up (from some of the comments above, it would seem not)

Why I love video game credits

dr_zoidthrob

2 years ago

It's always annoyed me that the last game I worked on (Goosebumps Horrorland DS - which was ages ago), we only had 13-14 bytes of space left on the DS cartridge.

So there were no credits at all, they all went into the manual - which no-one reads.

More powerful Xbox One planned for 2017 - report

dr_zoidthrob

2 years ago

I'm actually glad that I've not made the jump to either the Xbox One or PS4 yet.

Having been burned with the 360 (I got an early one that RRODed, then waited to get a new-style black one, which has been perfect), it's nice to see that my decision was, for once, the correct one.

Watch: Johnny plays Shadow of the Colossus for the first time

dr_zoidthrob

I never 'got it', I just kept getting frustrated by it. Which explains why my copy is on Ebay at the moment.

The thing I remember most about it, is that it was all modelled in Lightwave (which I was using on a few games at the time, and I was trying to champion it - this helped).

The 360 version is 39 in Asda (I assume, going on the size of the box, that it includes the guitar as well).

Next week I have (another) birthday. My wife has got me Google Cardboard to play with.

Maybe this is where VR should be looking - to use the devices we've got to act as the screen. With QHD resolutions available the images should be more than sharp enough.

Crucially, it remains light.

dr_zoidthrob

I know it's picky, but the alpha on the racing line is lost halfway 'into' the screen.

Either keep it consistent, or lose the alpha blend to the edge, and just have a thin, alpha-d line

I hope this time round they make the announcements (from your lady-friend) context sensitive. I'm number one in the rankings, and she's *still* telling me that I could be number one someday...

Other than that little thing, I'm still playing it (I did last night actually). Lovely game.

Picked one up in to have a play with Phones4U, promptly dropped it (the assistant said he'd done the same thing a few times).

It's too slippery for my liking, and that lovely body shouldn't get covered up with a case.
