Real time ray tracing? I’ll believe it when I see it.

Vampyr is on gamepass if you have that, by the way.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

There’s a world of difference between disagreeing with people that like a game, and straight up trolling and abuse.

And not enough people here seem to know where that line is.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The other thing Remember Me does that I think many might’ve missed is how it goes from the complex old time Paris, lots of colours and textures, lots of noise; and as the game goes on the places you travel through become more architecturally simple and monochrome, until by the end of the game the en...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Vampyr is Dontnod isn’t it? I really enjoyed Remember Me, had some great ideas (and actually understood what a futuristic European city would actually look like, rather than just assuming all the old buildings would be demolished, which is the default US position) It’s on gamepass, so I’ll probably ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I kinda want to play the Phoenix Wright games again, but I feel like they’re probably going to be asking more for that than I really want to pay for something I’ve already played through.

Re: Anthem

Unions won’t stop studio closures and mass redundancies. But they will make sure that people will be treated better when these things happen than they are now. (Ie, don’t give the people you’re making redundant a reasonable severance settlement? The staff you still have will strike). It means you ha...

Re: The Games BAFTAs

Ok, going to let you in on a little secret about the big awards like the BAFTAs and Oscars... You have to put yourself forward for consideration for the long list (which is then reduced to the nominations later), and pay an entrance fee. And then if you’re shortlisted, you have to pay to provide cop...

Argh of course.

I do remember that Chvrches were contracted to do a piece for something but I couldn’t remember what it was.

Goes to show how poorly Catalyst did though.

Re: Sound of Play: 192

Didn’t get as many of these as I thought, clearly me not having a gaming PC means I’m missing out on a lot of wacky Steam adventures. Things I’m pretty certain are in there: Mafia 3 (hold on, I’m coming... plays during the drive up to the final mission) Stellaris (only got this cause I’m playing it ...

Re: Retro gaming

From what I can tell from my Japanese copy, the Megadrive version of Shadow dancer is very much it’s own thing and not really a port of the arcade game at all.

Re: Anthem

Jason Schreier has started to be the ‘guy you talk to if you want to be sure your anonymity is preserved’. That piece reads like a missing chapter from his book ‘blood, sweat and pixels’ which I can absolutely recommend if you like reading about the horror of AAA game dev from the people who do it. ...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I grew up playing video games, as a total nerd that was my clique at school. I went to uni, did computer science, then put that to use making games professionally. I still do that 20 years later. It’s the most normal thing in the world to me to spend an evening (or even an entire weekend, looking at...

Re: Retro gaming

Reflashed the analogue up to v4.2 of the firmware when I got home last night (I remembered that my almost completely unused Mac Mini reads SD cards just fine so did it with that). The ‘built in’ game from DICE called Ultracore is also in that newer firmware, haven’t tackled that yet though. Figured ...

Re: Retro gaming

My Analogue Sg has arrived and it’s really rather nice. It does come with a pretty old firmware instead (v2.1, dated January) so I need to go find an SD card to reflash it to the current version (v4.2) in order to get all the newest options (the auto region detection appears to not be there in the s...

Or they just mean ‘you won’t see this on android’. But didn’t want to just outright say that in the same presentation they said that the Apple TV app would be built into Samsung TVs.
