News Comments > Carmack: Direct3D Now "Rather Better" Than OpenGL
29. Re: Carmack: Direct3D Now Mar 11, 2011, 17:28 Lorcin
 
I could be very wrong here but the PS3 and all subsequent consoles from them ,nintendo, iOS and Android use opengl . Windows and 360 use directx meaning programmers have to work with two different renderers or use the slow as shite C#.

Like I said could be wrong - I started looking into c# programming and everything I read promptly told me for multi-platform games I'd be better with C++ even though it's a harder job.

Carmack may think DirectX is a good thing but on the whole if the whole world could agree on one graphics api everything would be smoother.

That said why the hell can't they make the labels on the buttons the same on all the consoles - it's a very strange conversation telling your kid that O=B.

@creston just crack it.

Oh before anybody screams pirate at me - I'd happily post a screeny of it owned in steam. I still keep backups of cracked exes for all my games just in case I lose internet for a while etc.

There's also the little fact that there hasn't been a decent doom release for 15 years!!!!

WTF is next the crash bandicoot movie?

Doom died when 3 came out and most of the gaming world went MEH. Dwanye Johnson just hammered the nails into the coffin.

It seems after feedback from the Wii version the PS3 version of Michael Jackson will by styled along the line of Amnesia. You play the part of a small boy trying to escape Neverland whilst barely glimpsed unspeakable horrors hunt you down.

It's pretty different tbh - never played enough to say whether that's in a good way or not. It's one of those games I really want to like but never seem to play much.

My two cents after playing the 360 version:

If you thinking of buying it because you like RPGs, action adventures or comedy games. DON'T - it doesn't do any of that particularly well.

If you do buy it anyway - put it on the highest difficulty you can because the minute you can do aoe magic it becomes a walk in the park.

Those expecting it to be the second-coming, if anyone still is, will likely be disappointed.
Like most ID games it will be mostly a demonstrator for their ID tech engine which they will license out to quite a few companies. In this aspect a lot of people are expecting it not for the gameplay, but for the game engine itself..

Only trouble with that line of thinking iD tech 4 didn't exactly fair well against the Unreal Engine - 7 games listed using tech 4 (5 of them iD's IPs) and >100 for Unreal Engine 3. Even the Source engine has been more widely licensed than Tech 4 - hell even the god awful Gamebryo engine is wider licensed.

Totally agree on the "GANGBANG +500" bit - why they'd want to take what was a quickly tiresome novelty from the original UT and use it so excessively is beyond me. I'll hold off even getting the demo until I can check they can be turned off.

Still at the same time the comments in this thread have made me look up what an actual douche bag is - not the slang meaning, the physical object. I'm not sure what their called this side of the pond but it's not a common expression here. I guess it must be a bit like you guys and prat - we use that in much the same context as you use douche. Still at least I've learnt something from this game.

It's meant to be in an awful state - very buggy and quick to lock up systems. Oh and only works at 800x600

Whilst this womens case is a bit extreme I don't see why any purchase doesn't need the CCV number on the back entered. It's 3 digits - chances are the cardholder knows it and if a kid has remembered it on purpose then he can't claim it was an accident.

It does strike me as strange the ONLY places I don't have to confirm my CCV is on itunes/XBL etc etc - the ones which also have their own currency. Again whilst I think this woman is remarkably stupid the systems do seem designed to make accidental purchases easy.

They need to do something with it - my kids haven't touched it for 6 weeks. In fact it's actually been in the boot of my car for the last week after I tried to sell it to gamestation (UK gaming arm of blockbuster) and they WOULDN'T BUY IT CAUSE THEY HAD TOO MANY 2nd HAND ONES THEY COULDN'T SELL!!!!
