2004 called, they want their graphics back.

It's safe to say say this for all current generation console games coming out now (save for lets say, The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls) since we've been spoiled by graphics on PC. Me being spoiled with 1440p (2560x1440) and max everything makes me really want 4K gaming more, and anything 720p or lower looks like shite to me now. The current generation just has been around for far too long now, and looks as GTA5 seems to be PS3/360's swan song.

...I don't see the point of reposting/"reprint"'ing outdated interviews from 16 years ago? What is their (Gamasutra's) point?

Maybe the PS4 uses time recursive quantum algorithms, so magic tech it is!

The PS4 doesn't run off conventional electricity, rather for its energy source it's gas powered using a mix of ethanol and unicorn blood. We'll all supposedly be running off this stuff in 2014 or 2015.

they won't care... I'd be surprised if they even decide to use a new engine this time. all this money they have and they never use it on their game, only on their marketing budget.

Really looking forward to this one, and GTA5! This game will probably come out on PC a lot earlier than GTA5, and even look better graphics wise.

So was he murdered, did he commit suicide, or was it a REALLY strange coincidence? If it's one the first two then yeah, Reddit bears some responsibility here, but not more than them the self-appointed "expert detectives" who use the site.

So, reddit finally drove someone to suicide? Time to shut the experiment down, it's had a good run.

Does nobody read? It says he dead 1 month earlier... they only found him now.

So I shouldn't bother to go to E3 even if I don't game much? I used to always wanted to go when I was a hardcore computer gamer! Now, I have connections and I can go! Argh, why so late? Argh.

I say if you can go and it costs less < $200-$300 in travel/hotel costs to go then go. If you spend like $500+ or more, or are busy with other obligations at that time, then it's not worth it imo, esp. since you said don't game anymore. Everything is online now, all the videos/interviews and stuff so you may even have a better experience online for E3.
Actually, I live in L.A. area so it is not far. From what I read, it is free to register. Just need to prove that I am in the industry. My colleagues went in the past, and I didn't even know we could do that (didn't think they would accept employer's type of work for gaming). Haha.

Yeah, I wished I knew about this trick like over a decade ago when I was a hardcore computer gamer and started working in the same company! Argh.

If you live near there then go!! definitely go... even for just 1 day out of the 3 days. if it's free then best to go to 1 or 2 of the days, since you'd get too exhausted and tired and probably not worth it to go to all of the days.

Oh, actually this game was on the verge of being cancelled if what my post from a while ago was correct:

500 bucks? Hahahaha.

Well $500+tax was how much I paid for the Xbox 360 on launch day, so that's a reasonable price.

But running Windows 8 OS is discomforting...

Who cares...

My thoughts exactly!

they sure don't care about the PC version... they would even put 10 times more effort into the Wii U version, just because it's a console. they forgot that their roots for Call of Duty was first a PC exclusive game! they didn't update or patch BO2 in a while, and were reluctant to put in a fov slider. and you can bet they won't bother with dedicated servers for the new Call of Duty Ghosts game.

IGN gave it a 4.2... lolz

What happened to Digital Extremes? They were the original creators of Unreal, but now they make crap.

A tragedy for both woman and lion.

Especially the lion. It behaved like the predator it is.


Horrible to hear that the lion had to die... only in the U.S. they allow it, to kill animals like this.

Looking forward to this one providing it retains ammo, health and weapons being scarce and is centered more towards being a survival-horror than action.

yes, this one goes back to its roots at least. $50 is a bit much for a 3DS game though...

I go back to play the old Resident Evil 2 on PC and I'm surprised how it still holds up today. really great game.

I can definitely confirm a report on this that it's very much true. I have a close friend who used to work for Eidos Montreal but he quit due to bad management and corporate politics. Their Thief game was rebooted already a number of times due to quality issues (the game/prototype did suck), and I mentioned it in Blues News comments even a couple years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be another situation like Duke Nukem Forever, which would be quite a shame for the Thief series really. Publisher SquareEnix has all the right to be unhappy and concerned.
Is this the same team which made Deus Ex HR?

I don't know but I could ask. I'd say probably not, because they were working on it at the same time they were doing Dues Ex HR so likely they're different teams working on them separately.

Nintendo is almost out of the game... the Wii U really could be their last console, and they might just exit this industry and get into the pachinko business or something.

If Microsoft's next console is a cloud based console that's online only, then consider me uninterested. Thin clients should be on their way out.
