@homerbert Hmm, the second controller thing I can maybe see. But spin it round and actually you are getting a second controller bundled with the base console.

To be clear I think joycon pricing is too high, and you're actually only kinda getting two half controllers...

Arma 3 dev offers €500,000 to modders in Make Arma Not War contest

wanted_0012

@ShiftyGeezer Maybe the €200k prize is unfair if there is no 2nd/3rd place. But still, usually people make mods our of love (or trying to get a job) for no money at all.

Massive assumption on my part but it's possible they could split the prize if there really are two entries that are equally great - that's not out of the question. Either way they would probably all be offered contracts out of it.

I just think this sort of competition should be encouraged rather than slated. It's a platform for people to get noticed.

@HotCoffee is exactly right, devs don't know that people have both devices (and possibly both games on both devices for cross platform stuff?) so it will always be an afterthought that some people may use.

Nintendo have that same cross console relationship between the 3DS and WiiU if they want it. So I guess your point is kinda moot then, Scott.

Wii U to support two GamePads

wanted_0012

6 years ago

It's actually a good way of handling it. They could say it's not allowed to affect the frame rate, and then all devs would have to leave enough processing overhead in order to accomodate a 2nd controller video stream that may never be used. So quality would have to be lower all the time.

This 60fps thing though, does anyone know if thats all games, or just nintendo games?

Splinter Cell: Blacklist confirmed

wanted_0012

6 years ago

Not sure what to make of that, I liked conviction. It wasn't a proper SC game, I much preferred the earlier ones. It was more Bourne than Splinter Cell. But I knew that before I played it so didn't mind so much.

This is just weird, looks like old SP (in the day), plays like a cross between Conviction and Assassins. Far to high paced. I want to be able to sneak through the game and only have to kill people if I fuck up and get seen.

It could still be good, it's just no what I was hoping for. As others have said, I wish they would call it Conviction2 and make a proper SC game as well. Or better still, buy the Bourne license and make a game that does it justice.

Maybe Michael Ironside wants to go back to the old formula and wouldn't let Ubi use his voice for this :p

As someone who has never played the earlier syndicate games, I really like the look of this. From the gameplay footage i've seen it looks like the perfect sort of game to play through in co-op too.

Steam claims 100% sales growth in 2011

wanted_0012

7 years ago

@TrevHead I realize some games will be cheaper retail. CoD games are priced stupid on steam, the original MW is still £20 for god sake :S

Deus ex however is £30 not £45, I got it a bit cheaper than that at launch because I pre-ordered. And if you looked in the xmas sale I believe it had 50% off so was down to £15.

I guess I just prefer to get games from steam because of the convenience, I always had a real problem with having to put the CD in the drive to play a game I've already installed on my computer, I'd rather have Ubisoft style DRM (I feel dirty saying that!).

So I guess what I'm saying is if you pick your moment steam has some bargains. And even if it is more expensive I will use steam where I can (got BF3 from amazon as it was a £15 less than origin) because of the convenience and I like the service.

Having said all that, I don't buy many pc games at launch anymore, mainly because of the crazy sales and the fact I've bought so many £3 games I haven't got round to playing yet. Deus ex was the last one.

Each to their own I guess. I personally value my game collection being on the steam cloud where I can access it from different machines with no hassle and don't have to worry about disks getting scratched or lost or where to store all the damn boxes!

@CaptainKid Seriously, check out the seasonal sales on Steam, lots of things are way cheaper than retail. DNF was £3.74 in the steam Xmas sale, it's £18 on play.com or £5.89 on amazon.co.uk with free delivery so you'll get it in about 7 days time.

And who actually wants a box these days anyway? Personally I love the fact that the games are already in a format I can use them in. When I used to buy CD's I used to rip them to mp3 straight away. When I get a new DVD I make a digital copy and watch that. When I was buying boxed games I'd install it then find a no cd crack ... It's just more convenient!

Games of 2011: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

wanted_0012

7 years ago

@JetSetWilly

I played through stealth, trying not to be seen by anyone. When I got to that section I stopped sneaking and went nuts with my silenced pistol. Just because you played through the game being stealthy doesn't mean you had to do that section stealthy. In fact you pretty much didn't need to even try to save Malik at all.

And I've got to say the controls were anything bug clunky (on the PC anyway). Some animations were a bit sketchy, but nothing as bad as PS2. Quality game, I loved every second apart from the first boss.

That section with Malik and the chopper is awful. The game gives you no way of prepping for that so that you can approach it any way that you choose.

Thats the whole point! Your hover copter thing just got unexpectedly shot down, you shouldn't have time to choose your loadout and prepare for it. If you want to start a level with exactly the right equipment and be lead down a path showing you exactly how to do things then go and play COD. Or the BF3 single player for that matter.

Saturday Soapbox: Bring On The Next Generation

wanted_0012

7 years ago

There seems to be a lot of talk about a lack of innovation in games at the moment. Or as some people have stated, lack of innovation in AAA games. The way I see it, this is because of the sheer cost and time needed to make a game at the moment. The current consoles are powerful enough to mean that a massive amount of effort is required to make a game that meets the expectation of gamers round the world.

The next gen wont fix this. If anything it will make the situation worse, budgets will increase, time to make a game will increase. The risk of creating new IP will increase.

This is the reason that innovation is moving to mobile devices (iphone, ipad etc). The costs are lower, people expect less, the risk of doing something new is less. OK the cost of the games is also less so there is less profit for every game sold, but studios get to take a punt on a new idea without a huge risk. If it doesn't sell then they can move onto something else.

Angry birds or flight control didn't take 3 years and multiple millions to make, and look where they ended up.

These new less powerful platforms give indie devs somewhere to compete and they are making use of it. I just hope it filters up the chain.
