Xbox One S: release date, price, specs and everything we know

mattigan

2 years ago

Looks like someone in marketing has mistaken "40% smaller" with "40% the size of", that aside, it would have been amazing if they could have incorporated the Kinect mic as well as the IR blaster, as I'm pretty sure voice command and TV control is all that 99% of current users exclusively use the Kinect for.

Street Fighter 5's sold 1.4m copies

I love the assumption that everyone on the planet has a pc and that they use it to play games on...

I have an Xbox for gaming, it's a shame that I won't get to play this, but it's a business decision that I've got the crappy side of this time around, no biggie but I would definetly spent some cash on this given the option. Hopefully Sony's investment makes up the difference of lost sales, as I would like to get the chance to play then next one, if it's not another exclusive.

Why is video game lore so awful?

mattigan

2 years ago

@nickstancato80 which is ironic as there's some pretty good stuff in there, alongside character cards there are tales of valour and treachery, the mysterious Vex and the whole Oryx, hive and sword logic arc

All quite interesting although hardly scratched the surface of what could have been. Hardly anything about Fallen, the Queen or cabal, and what Rasputin is all about. Seems to be trying a little too hard to be mysterious, it you ask me.

Destiny: The Taken King release date leaked

I will be all over this like a cheap suit. I don't think 35 is much at all tbh, and I also don't think a bunch of bullet points is enough info on which to judge the final product, I dare say this will be a quite substantial upgrade across the whole piece, as happened with HoW. There were some quite substantial changes to the core game systems in addition to the story missions (which continue to be regularly released) that a lot of people seem to overlook.

Destiny: House of Wolves review

mattigan

3 years ago

Have I been asleep, is. 20 suddenly not ~5 pints of beer, or 2 cinema tickets (if you're lucky), or 1.5 blurays, etc...? 20 is really not much money.

In terms of per hour I think the DLC is fairly decent value.

Content on disk or cut content arguments seem to me to be all around entitlement, rather than any actual valid argument, Bungie doesn't owe me anything other that what I have paid for, which is the experience that Bungie created for me and was delivered at the point I bought it.

Regardless if the entire Bungie back catalog is locked on the disk, for me to purchase at a later date. At the point they decide to deliver it to me, it's my choice to pay the money or not, I certainly wouldn't feel the need to whine to all and sunder if I don't want to spend the money...

HTC One review

mattigan

5 years ago

This will be my next phone, had the One X and the clincher for me over the Samsung offerings has always been the build quality. The Samsungs feel like they would explode if dropped from anything more than 6 inches.

I like a phone to have a bit of heft to it, as I will be holding it in my hand for 99% of the time I'm using it.

Battery and super speed are not really an issue any more, for me phones have been quite fast enough since dual core processors became the norm while it's standard practice to leave it charging whenever its not in my pocket.

Plus I've never got on with touchwiz (or whatever the Samsun IU is called)

Why Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Prestige is not a start-over system

mattigan

6 years ago

How about prestige perks, you prestige you get to choose one of a selection of perks not previously available, at the next prestige you get access to a few more along with the previously unlocked ones but can only pick one new perk per prestige level, or have the option to to do a Darksiders 2 style respec and change your prestige perk load out. Or they could give the option of making one existing perk of your choice a permanent stat boost that doesn't affect the number of perks you can equip on the next prestige grind. Maybe a little game breaking but the guys burning through prestige levels tend to be so good that its pretty much broken anyway, and matchmaking should ensure that these guys always get bunched together in TDM lobbies anyway...

I would love a good Sniper game:

1. Sneak Sneak Sneak to vantage point of choice (multiple possible per level)

2. Set up shot

3. Make the kill

4. Exit to extraction point (Sneaking or Running based on descisions made/Skill in executing steps 2 & 3)

It can't be that hard surely...

Now I don't own a PS3 so this is not affecting me (XBL FTW - until it breaks as well) but this looks suspiciously like Sony have invoked DR and are in the process of restoring the environment to a 'pre hacked' state. And are funding that the restore process is taking a lot longer than anticipated, maybe their primary backup solution has failed or something, its the only thing I can think of that would knock out a system which would be designed with high availability as one of the chief requirements, along with security of course ;-)

Kinect parts cost MS around 34

mattigan

8 years ago

Think about it this way, every single aspect of this or any product has an associated cost that needs to be offset by the price of the unit at retail, from the 36 for components, to R&D on hardware (through many many revisions) R&D on software (to get the thing actually working) to R&D on integration with existing Hardware and LIVE infrastructure (Do you think things 'just work' when you plug them into your 360), to market research on packaging, to brand design, to development kits so there's software to run on the thing at launch, logistics with manufacture and manufacture costs, transport logistics and associated costs, even printing the manual. And dont forget tax and the retailer's cut.

To assume that component costs are the only bill MSFT has to pay is very shortsighted.

Today's games use 20-30% of Kinect

mattigan

It will work in a different way than you have just come up with off the top of your head in the last 30 seconds, why? Because the people developing games for this thing do this for a living and aren't some random clown on a forum rubishing something because they can't think of a way to make it work in their tiny little minds.

Seriously, off the top of my head I can think of at least a couple of ways to to make head tracking work for looking round a corner that don't actually involve looking away from the screen, and I AM some random clown on a gaming forum!

The key is that I am prepared to wait and see before I pass judgement from my ivory tower.

Will Yun and Yang come to console SF4?

mattigan

8 years ago

There will be more than 2 extra characters, and I hope they make it to console as DLC rather than a whole new disk to purchase like SSFIV was.

Although I think people are being a bit harsh, there are a TON of balance tweaks and even whole new moves for some characters, all of which have to be woven into the mix with the other 36 (so far) characters' strengths and weaknesses so as not to unbalance an dpotentially break the game. It's a massive task, and I personally am more than willing to pay for the result of Capcom's labours.
