News Comments > XCOM Shooter "Fresh Look" Reveal in "Days"

it was a very polished game, but the scope of the gameplay was too narrow, especially when compared to the almost epic gameplay of the original game.

The emulators article is sorta beside the point because it is the cellphone and tablet emulators that really matter at the moment.

What Verno says: PayPal can freeze your paypal account for any reason they see fit and they dont have to obey the laws that banks have to when there are disputes. I wouldnt go anywhere near them myself.

sounds more like it should be a patch than an expansion....

the latter part of that "lumbering toward cool again" article could be an "Onion" fake article.

A great article: the bond investors (basically 3 banks) are to be faulted for lack of due diligence equally as well as the state and the business. All 3 entities wanted to believe the cash would start flowing in.

Chafee's usual aloofness did not help him in the aftermath, but then again, he would never have allowed this deal to happen on his watch.

Schilling though, comes off looking completely inept as a CEO. Poor business decisions from the get-go. I love the part where there's not a new investor that will go anywhere near "38 Studios," then Schilling asks Chafee in person for millions more and Chafee simply and correctly says no.

As others also say here, Dragon's Dogma was by far my favorite console game of the year. Not perfect and not always polished but original in a number of ways. You are missing out if you havent played it. The end is bizarre.

There's still some talent at capcom.

bizarre for MS to cancel the family pack _now_. If they had done this because of a total revamp of LIVE and with the release of a new console that might almost make some sense.

News Comments > RI Considering Defaulting 38 Studios Loan
6. Re: RI Considering Defaulting 38 Studios Loan Apr 12, 2013, 14:18 avianflu
 
the creditors are banks or investment firms (projo has an article about this). Those businesses bear the responsibility of due diligence before they invest their bucks.

It is a notable mistake for RI to default (I dont think they will), but I am not crying for banks and investment firms who may only get a portion of their original investment.

I watched some youtube gameplay videos and realized the game forces one to play the same areas repeatedly to succeed. Add to that one hit deaths. I see the appeal but not for me.

its all rumors of course but there is a suggestion made here that there will be a starter xbox at entry level cost (whatever that exactly means).

I think both new consoles are deeply troubled with a 50% chance of sinking, but at least MS has money to spend on the dev and launch.

it is not that fluffy and article. He mentions how no one inside the industry really reads what gamers post on the internet or take it seriously. It is revealing for him to say that out loud and to a reporter.

And I like this quote:

"Everyone's kind of holding out hope for the new consoles, but I honestly don't think they're going to be that big a deal. I worry a lot that unless Microsoft or Sony pull something magically out of a hat, it's pretty much the same old, same old repackaged and I don't think they're going to change the dynamic of the retail market. I don't see how they can - the market is what it is."

Blaming the voters is bizarre for about 90 reasons.

For folks who bother to follow the details of this story --- they would know that the primary architects of this business deal werent elected but appointed. Very much off the radar. And everyone associated with the deal left those positions before the meltdown.

EA Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore thought he was being super savvy by shifting the blame around in his response. But all he does is sound awkward and clueless.

More broadly, we might be witnessing the first chapter in the fall of dedicated pricey consoles. But that's a whole other topic.

It amuses me that I am "defending" kinect because I heartily agree that the first gen kinect was lame for actual gaming

However, a dedicated CPU means no more annoying half-second delay. And that opens up lots of creative possibilities for hands-free gaming. In contract, what does the ps4 offer that is novel or different from others? At this time, nothing other than a promise from sony execs that it will be "awesome."

Not to be negative but, geez, the launch price for the ps3 was a jaw-dropping $799 in 2007. And remember what Sony did with the Vita and the $100 special memory cards? I would assume nothing until the prices are actually listed in retail settings.

My strong hunch is that MS will undercut launch price (because MS has the cash to do things like that) and SONY will gouge prices because they cannot at all afford to undercut. SONY is reeling from 4 years of substantial financial problems, and broad job cuts:

I am steering clear of consoles this time around but "kinect 2" is interesting tech. The only thing holding first gen kinect was RAM and dedicated processing. And the dev kit is open source.
