Xbox One won't allow players to use their real names at launch

reelbigkris

5 years ago

I don't want my identity shared online with strangers... If everyone knew i was really Bruce Wayne then the joker could find me much more easily on live... He plays dirty, using exploits all the time when we're playing Call of Duty! Don't make me live that hell Microsoft!

Note: Not sure if Joker knows the real name of the batman... Perhaps not... Anyway, I don;t really understand why people want their real names on xbox live unless they want a more intimate way of being called a c*nt online?

Rockstar makes up for GTA Online launch by showering players with GTA$

reelbigkris

I'm level 10 so far, have only about $20,000 in game... part of me kind of enjoyed how difficult it was to earn money so it gave me something to work towards. I'm not sure I like this... It's the same feeling i get when buying a brand new fighting game and all the characters are already unlocked :(

Ikaruga hits Steam Greenlight

reelbigkris

5 years ago

I wonder why people with credible success like treasure are using Greenlight to get onto steam? I always assumed greenlight was to gauge interest in a niche genre or to get lesser known developers the chance to get onto a distribution platform.

I am concerned that steam may be clogging up it's library, throwing so many new games onto the platform, decreasing sales overall of video games. It'd be good to see if this was a thing that could potentially make steam not very profitable for smaller games? Someone do some journalistic investigations please :)

I'm part of the 80%, my girlfriend is part of the 20%... We're moving in together soon... Have you alerted me to a potential argument as we try to organize the living room? At least now I have percentages to explain my reason for a horizontal xbox 360... Thanks EG!

Audio adventure Three Monkeys is a PC RPG for the visually impaired community

reelbigkris

5 years ago

The female character implied I was born in the darkness... Now I'm imagining the main character being bane...

"You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it"

is this going to be like a first person adventure, where you will need to listen to audio cues to navigate around the landscape, perhaps when you walk in a certain area, there's the rustling of a bush that blocks your path etc.

Quite looking forward to giving this a go at eurogamer expo

Oculus to launch its own marketplace with Oculus Share

reelbigkris

5 years ago

Do we have an estimation when the consumer version will be launched? I was thinking about picking up the Oculus rift and playing around with it to implement it in some games I'm working on, but kind of want to see what kind of price the consumer will be paying and how well received the headset will be over lengthy gaming sessions...

Not completely sure if this is an interesting novelty or going to drastically change the way people game.

Left 4 Dead 3 and Source 2 spotted during tour of Valve's office

reelbigkris

5 years ago

I was pretty down on Left 4 Dead 2. I mean yeah, it was a technically better game than L4D1, it managed to tweak a bunch of stuff which improved the game. but one of the things that I really wanted to see more of was the director. before the game was launched there were a few reports about the director changing the layout of the map so that sometimes things would change... sure, this did happen, but it was never as exciting as I would have hoped. It all started to become a bit mechanical replaying missions. would be nice to have to drastically change your tactics to combat a blocked path :)

Still, i'd love to see them release a game with a 3 in it :D

The bad interlacing really put me off, As much as I loved watching Knightmare, it has aged quite horribly. part of me was expecting a bit more edge instead of the watered down 90's saturday morning kids show we got with this. I bet those youtubers felt really childish when she started talking to them like 5 year olds :(

Lovely article, thanks Martin for visiting the office (I'm afraid i wasn't in the office that day, maybe another time!)

I work with Excalibur on a bunch of things, because we're pretty small everyone does a ton of jobs! Anyway, if anyone's interested, feel free to check out this other screen of recovery, it's still in development but it is one of our first games developed entirely by us. So it's quite exciting!

UK publisher asks for help releasing Devil Survivor 2

reelbigkris

5 years ago

@Kremlik I must say, i'm not entirely keen on the process either. The thing is, early access seems to be the way these kind of preorders tend to work. I don;t like the concept that if I put 25 in, if not enough others preorder, i'm down 25 until it gets refunded... It also feels a little bit like a way to grab preorders as quickly as possible

Right, so this is a bit of a subject i'm not quite sure on. Should we encourage pre-purchases in the games industry so publishers don't end up with stock they don't end up selling? Overall, everyone technically wins, people who preorder get the game, and the publishers don't need to spend money on manufacturing costs unless it's a safe bet.

it's kind of like a kickstarter, but for publishing in new territories. Anyone have any thoughts?

Great article, I've been working at a publisher/ developer creating some video content and marketing material. But I've always wanted to learn to code and create a game. Unity seems to be a pretty awesome tool for newcomers, but the hard part is juggling work with another form of work that you do in your spare time!

Respect to Tom who managed to make it work :) So glad he's able to pursue his interest full time

That trailer for the film, is it true stop moton animation or have they stylised CGI to make it look like frames are missing?... I've been enjoying TT's lego games quite a bit, i'm a little concerned that this is being tied to a film and will launch at the same time, it may not get the same amount of love as other games which launch years after a film

I think I've backed about 7 projects (Including this one at $100), the OUYA being the only one that has so far been completed. It's probably quite embarrassing for them to ask for more money, It seems a bit weird that the development costs have just rocketed through the roof and they even needed to consider cutting 75% of a game that they had designed.

However i'm concerned about those "modest cuts" which shave off six months of development? surely, 6 months lost in development is a pretty big deal and the game isn't going to really match schaffers initial vision I kind of want to experience the whole thing from beginning to end, I've even gone so far to avoid the documentary until after I play the game... So now i've got to unfortunately dodge a landmine of spoilers when the first half launches to the public first before I chose to play it... First world problems, yeah, but still relatively frustrating.
