In Game Footage, LOL!

Fuck off.

no, it's definitely in-game... and it's awesome. I'm shocked at the quality of graphics actually. there's only one Alien in this game this time.

it looks SO DAMN GOOD! the graphics look better than any game ever so far. OMG, they even make Amanda Ripley look kind of like Sigourney Weaver but different enough to only just be related.

I really really hope that the graphics are exactly as advertised. wouldn't it suck of two Aliens games become famous for over-selling their graphics?

I keep it like Cutter, company engages in "sex sells" style ads and they won't sell shit to me. And I dunno where you live Axis, but here ads are generally way beyond that and try to sell to as many people as possible.

But then, I don't see a lot of ads.. not having a TV helps.

I agree eRe4. I was responding to the article's nonsense -- that's what they were attempting to portray not me, I was just using their lame examples.

The only ads I see anymore are on Hulu for my wife and I, which I can put up with since they have the timer and aren't long. And only occasionally as there's only a few shows I watch. I primarily do movies on Netflix (kids ONLY get Netflix) or Amazon, play Pandora most of the time.

Mhhh. Maybe we are not the ones to talk about it then. I am guessing the article talks about game advertising. And I don't see that in my browsing simply because I got paranoid and block everything

I am sure companies doing advertising would rather people do not react like that... but if they only want to target males that can be lured in with that.. ain't my place to complain about that.

Speaking of ads.. did I ever mention that bluesnews is completely non-browsable on a tablet without adblock?

Works excellent on Nexus 10.

non-browsable as in "the ads are obnoxious as hell" working it does fine, it just looks abhorrent with ads. Or maybe it was a specific ad that was doing it. But I had a 2 page break between days with the AD being in the middle.

Blue's News looks fucking amazing on an iPad Air. everyone should get one. 1 lb, feels so light, like reading a newspaper. Nexus 10? pfft...

Even though I don't play the games, I really wish Sony/Microsoft/EA/Activision/Etc would release a solution to allow players to set up their own servers and continue playing. Then again, I'm sure the MP landscape for these games is desolate at best.

this... Resistance 3 is still pretty new, i haven't played it yet and waiting for a deal on it so i can try multiplayer .

I remember Clint Hawking did some nice talks at game dev conferences and such. he comes off as a pretty bright individual and very forward thinking. topics on ethical decision making is very important.

Steele Johnson wrote on Jan 7, 2014, 03:31:
I smell a mass exodus brewing. Maybe the transition from being a game developer to a console maker isn't for everyone. ; )

as the saying goes, if you can't stay into a triple A game studio then go do mobile games instead. or you could join Zynga and do Facebook games, real easy stuff man.

Square Enix doing as Square Enix does. No surprises there

it's also pretty much the only triple 'A' game coming out this month (January) so they picked a good time to (re)release this.

we don't need this on PC anyways, Xbone can have it... still better than paying $49 for Angry Birds.

edit: one thing they mention in the FAQ is Kinect. but what about the PS4 camera? why aren't developers using this peripheral at all?

also I noticed this contradicting...

Q: Have any bugs from TR 2013 been addressed in TRHD?
A: Yes. All of the title updates rolled into the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of Tomb Raider have been included in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

[...]

{ "...rebuild Tomb Raider from the ground up for next-gen consoles."
"...They pulled it apart and rebuilt it with new technology, finally allowing us to reach the vision for Tomb Raider that we always wanted."
"No, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was built from the ground up for next-generation console technology that isnít available in previous hardware." }

uhhm, so if it's re-built from the ground up then how can the old patches even make a difference at all?! and with a totally new redesigned version of the game you're gonna have new bugs anyway?

I had like 6 boot options and getting Ultima 7 to run with sound and a mouse driver suckkkked. D:
Ahh yes...the good old DOS days. Buy Dark Sun: Shattered Lands for $60+ from EB...then realize you couldn't finish due to a bug. I think after talking to SSI's support it only took 4-6 weeks for them to ship me the floppy with the patch on it.

OMG!! I remember that bug... yeah, I think I had to dial in to a BBS just to download a patch to get past that showstopper bug. such a good game too.

Valve has already said there won't be any exclusives, even if they did try to do HL3 as an exclusive people would play HL3 and then ditch the OS and go back to Windows.

I don't see this as a reason to ditch Windows as a desktop OS and have no interest in PC gaming in the living room.

I'd disagree. wasn't it the case when HL2 required Steam that everybody chose Steam to eventually be the dominant/leading platform for digital distribution? if HL3 was exclusive to SteamOS it could be adopted as a main platform for gamers, and I wouldn't be surprised if Valve made HL3/L4D3 exclusive to Steam Machine/SteamOS. history can repeat itself. they may say there won't be exclusives but things can always change. the only way for mass adoption is for exclusivity rights, and that's what Microsoft is trying to do with Xbox One for digital TV shows and movies.

Would be cool if some developers made the full switch to Steam OS and left Windows in the dust, for their upcoming games

Half-Life 3, exclusive to Steam OS. The End.

Seriously.

Some people didn't grow up in the DOS days. Windows and DirectX brought PC gaming to the masses.

Judging by the looks on their faces, even they know that this is all BS.

Mobile gaming is terrible. I bought a GS4 and was all psyched about the gaming potential. Then I downloaded a few games and found out that they were completely awful. The only games that even come close to being good are the GTA games and you need a MOGA controller for it to be semi-fun. It will be a long time before any mobile games are worth looking at. As it stands, they're all such shallow games with no content. The FF games might be the exception when considering content.

XCom Enemy Unknown is really fun. I'm currently playing through that on my iPad Air. Infinity Blade series is not bad also, but the best tablet games are the direct PC ports and not designed for mobile games.

Isn't Chobot the one that modeled for Mass Effect 3? Chobot looks so out of place and Jersey Shore-ish in that game lol.

Also what does Chobot have to do with this Daylight game? Voice work?

this is Chobot's game. she's mainly the writer, game designer and is part of a team of 6 at Zombie Studios. surprises you?

Meh, I find Jade Raymond (Assasin's Creed) to be a lot hotter, and not so full of herself like Chobot.

yah! J.R. (at Ubi Toronto) is totally way hotter. im part of the fan club.

Maybe he left because the poor guy just wanted to make some good Star Wars levels for a game. Then when LA leads messed up, he went to Valve and wanted to design and make levels for Half-Life 3, and then when Valve said, 'nah, we're all over at the other tables now, you gotta roll over here bro' he just said enough was enough.


yeh, and WTF is going on with Half-Life 3 anyways?
