And if the Xbone was,'t a POS and could easily run everything 1080P Phil would then be saying the exact opposite. So why is this crap even considered newsworthy.

The head of Xbox opens his mouth, it is news. It's a billion dollar industry and like it or not the Xbox is a big part of it.

I just can't get around how stark the contrast between FFXII and FFXIII was. One was a huge pseudo MMO world chock full of monster-infested expansive zones, and the next a corridor-laden title which made Doom 3 look like Far Cry. And WTF is Square doing taking tri-Ace, who made actually interesting games of Star Ocean and Resonance of Fate, and dumping them on Final Fantasy???


I can't believe the Dragon Quest and Ni no Kuni dev is making a fucking ipad game. It seems the only JRPG still kicking is Tales.

The Japanese console market has been shrinking for some time, to do a big budget JRPG you pretty much need to do it on a handheld. People there are going nuts over mobile games so unfortunately this trend will likely continue which sucks because I love me some JRPGs.

There is still a huge market for FF games but they can't afford to keep making these 5 year affairs that resemble movies more than games. Tales will be fine as they have a solid fanbase and a good niche. Everything else who knows, it ain't lookin good unless you release on the 3DS.

I don't know, I couldn't stand the FFXIII series but I agree that its been more good than bad on the whole. I just wish they would change their internal company structure a bit, you don't need 500 artists working on a JRPG to make something decent. What ends up happening is overbloated projects like FFXIII that are heavy on assets, low on gameplay and cost the studio a fortune while taking eons to complete.

They pretty much had to make 3 iterations of FFXIII just to recoup costs, they had produced like 6 years worth of art and animations for the silly thing. You guys will never make movies, fire some people please.

Tough crowd here, I thought it sounded interesting and will definitely check out the alpha/beta. They're trying something new for a change so I'm a bit dismayed to see people crapping all over them for it when thats what they've been demanding forever.

It's not like John Romero did something truly horrible to humanity. Now if only so much passion would be put towards actual real problems in this world instead of vilifying a game developer, 15 years down the road.

Sure but this is no different than movies, music or any other media industry. The public in general is all about what have you done for me lately. Even moreso for someone who made several public faux pas. As several actors have noted, you're only as good as your last performance.

Yeah id hasn't done much other than make great tech but you also ignore that he's had plenty of opportunities since leaving id but hasn't really done anything either. If he wants to sell a game again he absolutely has something to prove and I bet John himself would say the same thing.

There's certainly never been a better opportunity with crowdfunding and the large resurgence of the PC gaming market. I wish him luck, more games are always welcome.

Why do people who twitch use the worst music possible?

It's like a rule of streaming that the person will have awful taste in music that they want to force on the world.

Also the people who get access to games pre-release and stream it are always the worst players imaginable and make the games seem terrible.

Oh more than that. I bet it was easily a 100mil+ deal all told. They probably lightened that number with advertising agreements and whatnot but to give up sales on a potential 10+mil installed base platform they would have really needed to cough up. The TR reboot did exceedingly well on Sony platforms too so this is a pretty weird move. Maybe their agreement will allow them to do a Definitive Edition for all platforms a year later, that would be my guess.

I don't know if anyone noticed but the latest Steam betas are much faster than prior versions. The new renderer made a big difference. It is very snappy and overall much more pleasing to use. The music player is a minimal effort with no file listing play but it functions. Now if they could just work on the overlay a bit more, its often inaccessible while games load and etc even if the system itself isn't resource pegged.

I'm guessing the inevitable shitstorm will cause them to reconsider the exclusivity

They signed the contract already it seems, they put up a tumblr for damage control. I don't know they go back on that.

This is going to be ugly.

Geoff Keighley &#8207;@geoffkeighley 2m
Spoke to many people here at Xbox press conference on Tomb Raider. Official line is that the game is "exclusive on Xbox for holiday 2015."
https://twitter.com/geoffkeighley/status/499192318914998272

That sounds more like timed exclusivity but oh well.
