News Comments > Microsoft to Acquire Mojang for $2B?
70. Re: Microsoft to Acquire Mojang for $2B? Sep 10, 2014, 13:58 Tumbler
 
Well...buy the ps4 and ps3 version while you can I guess.

That is pretty disappointing. It seems like MS should be focusing on making their platform interface better all around. The home screen is ugly and unpleasant, the voice commands are a mess and I end up having to repeat myself all the time. I bought that remote simply so I could get around on that thing without picking up a controller or wasting my breath.

The xbox one is kind of a mess right now and I don't see how buying something like this is going to insentivise them to fix their systems. It's like Nintendo paying for Bayonetta exclusivity, it doesn't feel like a win for the system, it looks like a "fuck you, if you wanna play minecraft you gotta do it here! Hahaha!"

Remember how well it worked for At&t with the Iphone? Fuck you, you want an iphone you get at&t! Remember how well it worked for vita? You want vita 3g? Fuck you, you get at&t!

For $200 that Batmobile isn't remote controlled? Hunh, that seems like a waste.

And according to the sheet they made it's only available at walmart! Hooray!

News Comments > Op Ed

I thought the CAG cast last week had some great comments on the whole games media drama that sum up my feelings in a nut shell. (Cag cast is the cheap ass gamer website weekly podcast)

Cheapy's feeling on the matter is that in the end, what do people expect? I don't know if a lot of people realize how much sites like RPS, Giantbomb, IGN, etc depend on being in the good graces of these game publishers. In order to make money people like us have to visit the site and read / watch their content. That means you need review copies of games a week or more before release and companies won't give those too you unless you're "playing the game". I don't know many people that pay for that content. People expect to read reviews on games for free...so who's paying for that content? The publishers and game makers.

So who are the sites going to be loyal to? The publishers and the game makers. So in the end, why would anyone expect this to be objective and ethical?

Most of the gaming media is glorified advertising. They stay in business because big companies want to spend money on those sites as part of their advertising. Sending review copies of games, hosting media events where people come and see the games, buying ad spots on the site that people will see when they come see the reviews, having special promo's that preview the game and talk about how awesome it's going to be.

The most likely way to get honest feedback on games is from a person who buys the game out of their own money and will likely notice the loss of those dollars in their account. I don't know how much money Angry Joe makes on his youtube stuff but he seems like someone that would be genuinely pissed if he bought a shit game. (and it's kind of his thing) And that to me is what being a gamer is all about. If you're not pissed, you're not a gamer. If you're not pissed then you're doing something wrong because gaming is one of the most consumer hostile business' you can be a part of. They're even hostile and horrible to many people in the industry in many cases. I'd compare it to being a car sales man for Ford or Toyota. Or being a customer going onto one of those lots trying to buy something. It's a terrible business but they have a product that people want enough to put up with that shit.

News Comments > Gratuitous Space Battles 2 Video
1. Re: Gratuitous Space Battles 2 Video Sep 2, 2014, 16:27 Tumbler
 
The lighting examples in the video would add a lot to the game if it generated different lighting conditions with each battle. Not random, just dozens off combinations to look awesome.

The lower light examples looked awesome. You could have a comet moving through with a traveling light source every min or so. Hopefully explosions would light up certain areas, maybe laser beams could illuminate the nearby ships.

The combat itself looks too familiar too the first game. I want it to have more weight, I want to feel the impacts of all these weapons. (if that makes sense) I want the ships to buckle in areas they are being hit. I want them to roll and ram into others if they get to close or take damage.

News Comments > Activision Taking Take-Two?
11. Re: Activision Taking Take-Two? Aug 31, 2014, 15:23 Tumbler
 
I'm not surprised considering how successful gta V was. Now might be the best time to sell because it's anyone's guess how big a title GTA will be on the next gen systems. Who knows if call of duty will hold the top spot, it might but everything is up in the air.

Halo seemed to have the top spot for console shooters going into the 360/ps3 and COD4 was the beginning of the end for that dominance. It's still a successful franchise but everyone wants to be CoD.

Destiny could dethrone it, not in the first year or 2 but it's certainly got the hype necessary. CoD4 has amazing hype as well, it wasn't ready so soon during the console cycle but it will be interesting to see who takes the #1 console franchise spot.

I'm betting on madden! I here madden is really good again, definitely going to be madden. /s

the integrity of kotaku is now completely at stake. Hell, the integrity of gaming journalism, the few it had, is destroyed completely if this is true.

Kotaku!? Am I think only one that thinks Kotaku is the national enquirer of games journalism?!

I'm surprised they aren't reporting on it themselves complete with exclusive nude pics of the act!

You're reputation is shot so you're gonna start making high quality stuff instead of all that mediocre stuff that hurt your reputation. Good plan.

News Comments > Star Citizen Arena Commander Access Expands
15. Re: Star Citizen Arena Commander Access Expands Aug 7, 2014, 15:24 Tumbler
 
There are just over 500,000 currently and the most recent update from CIG is everyone has access now. I've never seen them talk about how many are playing. Based on my experience I'd say very few past the first week they got in. The lack of custom controls has me waiting. I'd rather play after I can set controls in the game.

News Comments > Star Citizen at $49M; Ongoing Funding Explained
26. Re: Star Citizen at $49M; Ongoing Funding Explained Aug 5, 2014, 14:51 Tumbler
 
Star Citizen just feels more and more like Battlecruiser with way more feature creep. For the next few years or more, it's going to be entertaining to keep watching this.

Have you heard of Line of Defense? It's comparable to SC and I think there is a very obvious difference in quality. I think everyone would be right to be upset if SC was looking like Line of Defense does in the latest video clips.

News Comments > Star Citizen in Depth
29. Re: Star Citizen in Depth Aug 4, 2014, 16:57 Tumbler
 
The project as a hole seems to have turned a corner recently. The coverage I see from the press used to feel like they were asking "how big a failure is this going to be?" and now it's "how good is this going to be?"

It feels like they're over the hump now they just need to deliver the best damn game anyone has every seen!

It's exactly like this!

What's even more amazing is that up to now the funding has come with a lot of skepticism and negative feelings surrounding the project...and they hit 40 million before that changed. What do you think the next year will deliver when most of the news you're hearing is positive, the game is playable, new ships coming into the game all the time?

News Comments > PC No Man's Sky Confirmed?
6. Re: PC No Man's Sky Confirmed? Aug 1, 2014, 11:53 Tumbler
 
I'll bet there is tremendous pressure behind the scenes to sideline pc versions of popular upcoming games because it's a no brainer to make these games available on the pc.

It seems all the fidelity people were excited about in game demos are turning out only to be on pc so if games like destiny and Watchdogs come out looking amazing only on the pc it's going to push more people to pick up pcs. Gamers dropped $400 plus on these likely to lay certain games in particular so it's not crazy to think they might spend $500 on a pc to get the best experience. And the prices on steam sales have got to scare them shitless.

News Comments > Facepunch Announces Riftlight; Defends Rust
14. Re: Facepunch Announces Riftlight; Defends Rust Jul 28, 2014, 13:06 Tumbler
 
So they announce a new game and rust fans are upset that Rust isn't done first.

Then someone at facepunch thinks it would be funny to tell everyone Rust is canceled? (But then in the article below that title explain that it's not canceled and working on more than 1 game is normal?

Well enjoy the PR you get from this. I'm sure that will help the new game a lot.

Spaceships!

I hope it has parts of the ships being blown off and all kinds of carnage on the ships when weapons bust through the shields! I want ships slamming into each other and massive explosions!

I think with the 3d support I can officially retire my PS3 and sell it. I don't watch many movies but I knew as soon as I sold it I'd be wanting to watch one...

Only thing that sucks is now my handy remote won't work with the Ps4. Guess I'll sell that too.
