Hey Carmack now that texture sizes and polycounts have hit their limit (consoles!), now that normal maps and real time shadows are passe, how about developing some imaginative physics and realtime animation systems for Doom 4 so that when I blow open a Cacodemon the sludge that pours out of the new buckshot orifice cakes the floor and causes the player model to slip hindering movement oh and along with excessive gore bring back the religious overtones and get Reznor to do a death machine 5.1 surround audio mix and don't be afraid to flood levels with horrific enemies rather than 3 or 4 that hop about and go to "cover" using pretend pretend AI and loop endlessly in A to B cycles rather concentrate on a real Doom game that takes us straight to a visceral gameplay PTS inducing hell I want to be able to blow Cyberdemons in half and hide inside their still pulsating guts using the meat as actual cover while 100s of Demons roar across a cavernous room towards my meat bunker.

News Comments > Dishonored Voice Cast
22. Re: Dishonored Voice Cast Aug 3, 2012, 19:52 Dmitri_M
 
As someone who enjoys games for gameplay sake I always have subtitles enabled during cutscenes so I can skim read and jump through the cheesy game storylines before the voice actor is finished - I don't care which actor is pulling a pay cheque to do a voice. That's cutscenes though, good voice acting during actual gameplay is always appreciated. Using recognizable names has little point outside of marketing purposes. The celebrity factor detracts from the experience for me. Why is Captain Picard in an RPG. Not that I play RPGs. Too much lame story telling. Too many hokey cutscenes to skip with too many celebrities dialing it in on some lame video game content.

If the port is well done, I'd pay the premium just to play with this with controls that actually work a damn. On-screen buttons and sticks on iOS are awful.
I have Gran Turismo 2 running on my android phone using a PS1 emulator with onscreen controls in "simulation mode" (albeit it's still on the forgiving end of driving games) and it's 100% controllable - about as good as a physical gamepad. If a mobile game doesn't control well with touch screen controls it's the developer's fault. No way would I pay a premium for this.

I think that video would like much better with sprite enemies. when I think ROTT..and Doom for that matter..I think awesome sprites. This trailer just looks like a bad mod from 5 years ago. If you're going to trade on nostalgia for an old title then find a creative way to make it actually look like the original. How about HD sprites?

It would confuse the hell out of kids if they saw sprites on their screen today.

I don't care.

Only people who can remember the original are going to play this anyhow. Especially after seeing that trailer..

Someone should create a list of failed or vaporware virtual reality headsets. Virtualboy anyone? These devices always look like expensive eyestrain inducers.

Hey man, Mario Tennis on the Virtual Boy owned I remember trying to play that thing in the car, what a nightmare. Makes you really feel for your parents, think about all of the dumb shit you wanted as a kid that you used twice and discarded but they still had to pay for.
I have stacks of old gaming peripherals collecting dust in my parent's garage. Each time I visit I catch a glimpse of them all dusty and discarded (the peripherals, not my parents). Years later still feel guilt for abandoning them after mere hours.

The resolution is low but at least this means you could lather on AA without any performance hit.

Anything that currently supports trackIR, mostly sims like DCS and ArmA should be easy to modify to support it. Not sure how suited this is for standard FPS titles like Doom. TrackIR doesn't work well with those conventional titles since you "look" with your gun. Unlike flight sims and odd FPS titles like ArmA where the player can move his view independently of the weapon. Most PC gamers can barely cope with ArmA's independant head\weapon view or even know to use it.

I'm happy sticking with my trackIR and 3x24inch LCDs which I've been using for..5 years?

Poor voice acting? The voices are a huge part of the originals.

Still don't see any reason to get this since I always have JA2 installed somewhere on my drive.

It's a shame there is no single-player play except for the story mode. I liked that and all, but all the cut scenes make me not willing to replay it to get to the action scenes so much, so just putting me in, say, the airport or office foyer level with respawning waves of enemies would be plenty for me. I find it hard to imagine they couldn't whip that up pretty easily.

After completing the game and not touching it for weeks I booted it up and tried playing through some of the story stuff, but being forced to sit through the forever cutscenes killed it. Uninstalled.

Also, at 30gig for an install folder that thing was dead weight. 8 gigs in the cutscenes folder. Hell yeah. Bye bye.

I replayed MP1 and MP2 over and over after completion.

Way to go encouraging no one to return to your game, or to purchase your DLC.

I don't pay much mind to the Olympics. No feelings towards it either way. If people want to build the stadiums and pay it off with their taxes for 20 years to come, shrug, so be it.

I also don't pay much attention to Americans saying the Olympics is a waste of time since I know that they despise anything international that didn't originate in America. That's ok, I understand

What's that Superbowl thing all about? Damn internet get's flooded with banner ads and articles about it each year. Shrug, I guess someone out there likes it.

You'd think by now they'd realise no one cares about this franchise.

Total lack of creativity. Move on Crytek, try to do something original.

How about working on a PC only title and having a recruiter (mind you, an agency recruiter not one that worked for an actual game company - still, it speaks to all of their collective "minds") say: "Hmm, that PC title is hardcore, only weirdo's play that, only people who never leave the house play that." Translation: Are you a weirdo?

PC gaming. Giving street cred to developers everywhere.

It's not so much a filter for experience as it is for chutzpah. They want someone who really wants to be there. And if said person can sell them on themself without the experience he stands a damn good chance of landing the job.
Likely they'll just ignore or filter you out. In the days of Skype interviews and "apply by e-mail only no walk-ins or phone calls" your notion of chutzpah is archaic.

41. Re: Microsoft Flight Grounded Jul 26, 2012, 20:13 Dmitri_M
 
I want to meet the pissant who thought MS Flight Simulator could be dumbed down and see increased profits. I bet it's some 27 year old kid who grew up playing N64 on his couch (I like to have a clear identifiable target for my dissatisfaction, we need more of that). Flight sims are a niche market with an established fan base. Their sales must have been predictable, they must have been profitable relative to their budget.. This is just greed. MS FS must sell COD numbers! It seems if a franchise isn't selling 5 million units it's deemed a failure.

adding new video options, adding new patches that help day z, adding more options to help mod makers. Sounds like they are putting at least some of that new inflow of money to work on the game they are getting the money from.

All too often studios take the money and move on to the next project. Its good to see some support.
Nah, this patch has been in ongoing development through their beta patch system for months\years before the DayZ craze. http://www.arma2.com/beta-patch.php

We've yet to see any real effect of DayZ.

I credit the community for getting BIS to open their development up more. The bug testing system used by BIS was setup by a community member. As an indie studio producing an FPS they're forced to get their beta content out there. Adding video options to this patch is just a way of beta testing the options for ArmA 3. Much of these changes are likely rolled into that source.

I'm selective with what I post using my real name. The only thing I have under it online is a very mundane flickr account where I post safe travel photos that I'm happy for HR people related to future employers to find. It's better for them to find SOMETHING googling you, rather than no presence at all..

When you have a common name like mine, its a meaningless concept to be able to possibly find something about me on Google, as you'd have to dig many pages in remote hopes of finding the one unique me. Facebook too
Yeah my name is unusual enough that I'm pretty sure I'm the only one out there with it :\ Certainly am from a google search perspective.

Hippie parents combining a first name that has no historical or cultural reason for being paired with my last name, which is unusual enough in and of itself.

I have a friend with an extremely common name who is impossible to find online by the sheer number of duplicates out there.
