But they weirdly made him enough money to do other movies, all of which look stupid but most critics seem to find less stupid than the video game movies.
His video game movies did NOT make money. They dont had to. Boll used a german tax loophole, where investors could write off large sums when they invest something in a movie. The movie had to be produced and released to gain from this, but in no way it had to make money in itself. The tax relief was the goal, not the movie making any money. And as this loophole was closed ... Boll stopped churning out video game movies, did nothing for a while, than made two films with his own money, tried several crowdfunding projects (none reached its funding goal) and now he's FINALLY done with terrorising the world with his "movie making".

Are you saying that a movie could make more money if it bombed? Excellent, I've been working on a script, it's called Springtime for Chris Roberts... guaranteed bomb.

I picked up an Oculus last week and just tried this last night. Not sure I can ever play it on a standard monitor again. It's pretty awesome.

Welcome to awesome land, sir. Great to have you.

An aside to the VIVE users. This new update + SteamVRs version of asynchronous timewarp (which you can get by opting into the beta of SteamVR) offers a significant perceived increase in performance for ED. Still not as good as the Rift, but MUCH MUCH improved.

There's a HMD Quality setting now in ED. Switch that baby to 1.25 and off you go. night and day difference, and this is with a gtx 970. Sure it runs at 45fps and in reprojection mode (only so much a 970 can do), but it feels smoother and the visual fidelity is vastly better. Feels like I got a new video card for ED. pretty awesome stuff.

Last Guardian? What's that, a new FPS?

Seriously though, I would love to read a postmortem about why this took so long.

There's bound to be at least a dozen of those, probably from Polygon alone, not to mention everyone else.

Love to play Battlefield but I'm not about to supplant my decision to never use Origin, "it's really not that bad a platform" bleating not withstanding.

I'm with you on the boycott, but, BF1 is the first one that's making me waver in my steadfastness to never install Origin. Wish me luck, I shall try to hold out.

Looks like yet another underpowered console (that finally gets Skyrim, and does it get mods?).

Dear Nintendo.
Keep your mobile gaming market. Kill off your consoles and start making your awesome IP's for other systems/pc's.

*wonders how long before a kid looses the controllers*

Raw horsepower isn't everything. Sometimes you have to scale the power back a little to bring up other areas. This is obvious by what Nintendo is trying to do with the Switch. It's also obvious with cars where what good is 1000HP if you can't hook up? You'll end up getting beat by someone with <= 500HP.

The Switch looks incredible in every way and I will be pre-ordering this ASAP.

Indeed. This won't appeal to the Bluesnews crowd, but it does seem very nicely targeted to how most casual gamers -- which is basically everyone in their teens, twenties, and thirties -- play games these days. And from a hardware design standpoint, the seamless transition between different usage modes is very, very cool. Whether it's effective at making gaming wherever seamless, or just a gimmick, remains to be seen though.

Pretty sure it's the latter. No one is going to want to carry around yet another device. I don't see anywhere that this can connect to the internet. Does it replicate other tablet functions? Is the screen multitouch? People will expect these things. And cartridges??? The '80s called, wants its tech back. And those minicontrollers are unuseable.

It's interesting that this video is pitching this to adults, when children are much more the target audience. Hard to imagine adults shelling out for this for their kids though, when a tablet offers gaming and so much more functionality for much less money.

Don't get me wrong: it's cool tech. It's just completely impractical.

Agreed on most, though I think too much heat is being put on the cartridges, or rather as they should be called, a cheap flash drive w/ proprietary connector. Give me flash over a disc any day of the week.

I must be missing something obvious and asking a dumb question here but why do VR games require a VR headset? Doesn't it just give the perception of 3D. It's not like a room isn't a room, in a VR game. It seems more like deciding whether you want speakers or headphones, the game will still play.

Remember all the shitty Kinect games? Yup, that's why.
Oh damn too bad, thanks. You figure developers and publishers would be smarter. I don't know much about it but remember movies doing 3D with special glasses. At least they had intelligence to target everyone with potential sales, not just those that put out for the glasses. It's hard to believe they aren't smart enough to develop a non VR interface. Rolleyes

Right on! Why does an xbox require a television? I can't believe they're not making video games for radio.

Maybe they wanted to make a VR game. Maybe they wanted people to experience the thing in a certain way. Sorry you can't be involved and if you can't have this thing you'd rather shit on it. Take your entitlement issues somewhere else.

5 days till Civ VI. Cannot f'in wait! :D

I can, and will. $80 for an incomplete game? Um hells no.

Incomplete game? Can you explain that please?

Probably referring to Civ V not having all the features of previous releases until after all the DLCs were dropped. They made people pay for things that were previously included. Kinda like if Madden made you pay extra for a career mode that was standard in previous releases. I think that was the controversy? I dunno. Just a guess. I don't know if that's the case this time around.

tackling is mostly just getting in the way, and she had a good angle to get in the way. It was a good play.

Man that game looks so mediocre, I can't believe it has spawned 3 sequels.

I got banned from Polygon for implying the 9.0 given to it from the review was part of some quid pro quo arrangement, and I'm not even a #gamergate guy. Big time releases are ALWAYS showered with 9/10, 9.0, 9.5! These games are essentially shovelware that's guaranteed to make a profit because of name recognition and the install base. Cover shooters? In 2016? Jesus. PC Gaming Master Race 4 Life.

Yeah, so in the next 25 years when people are jacking directly into VR ala Neuromancer/Snow Crash you really think people are still going to be interested in Minecrap?
Yes. It's groundbreaking in a way that only a handful of games ever could be. It's the forebearer of a whole new genre in gaming. There will be newer versions of it, but even 25 years from now someone is still going to be playing the classic version of it for fun, just like we do Super Mario Bros.

And Blue, it's still selling $1M/day, not counting the DLC. MS will easily book $350M+ in revenue this year on Minecraft (though obviously not all of that is profit).

MS wants it to be the killer app for their AR headset, and they might be right. It's already the best app for VR headsets, imo, with the possible exception of Elite.

While there may not be any good video game movies, there are a few that are not bad. Mortal Kombat, for example

Hyper Light Drifter is a really fun indie 16-bit-ish ARPG. Highly recommended if you're into that sort of thing. Very unique in it's presentation and gameplay.

All of this. You'll know if you're into by the time the intro is done. The art and music are sublime, the gameplay is fast and challenging.

Example how most on the left answer opposition! RACIEST! There you have it!

The whole point of this is that there's no opposition, no ideas, NOTHING. It's a dearth of ideas. He's just spouting stuff straight from the white power handbook. It's not policy, it not ideas. This was not the case in 2012. Romney talked about ideas. McCain talked about ideas. Even Sarah fucking Palin talked about ideas and policy. There is nothing to debate here. He hasn't told us anything about what he intends to do other than to build a wall, which is the stupidest fucking idea in history. I will GLADLY debate an idea or a policy I will NOT debate on whether someone that says racist things is racist. You are asking me to ignore reality and I will not do that.

Slick, you are definitely in one side of my 33% statement. You are just as bad as the people that you hurl crap at on the other side.

I see a wall of Blah Blah in your post, that started by passively aggressively calling the other side racists.

Like I said...this shit's gotta stop at some point.

Where did I call people racist? Trump IS a racist, he shouts it loudly and proudly, have you ever heard him speak? I'm not putting words in his mouth. Reporting verbatim on things a politician has said (repeatedly) is not somehow stooping to their level.

That's a bullshit comparison and you know it.

When people find the quality of racism to be an endearing quality in a candidate, guess what? They're probably racists.

And if you can't even be bothered to read what's being said, you really have nothing to gain by commenting on it.

Oh, I read it. Ironically I didn't have to read far at all: first two sentences: "It's really because the president for the last 8 years has been (half) black. That's really it"

That is calling folks racist and you know it. Like I said, you're no better than the other guys. Keep throwing the fire bombs.

Who's being passive? Trump supporters are racist, or at least, complicit with Trump's racism, which is obvious because I've heard him speak words that came out of his own mouth (I don't know why this point needs to emphasized every goddam time).

Give it up Slick. People that watch Fox News and listen to right-wing radio think (have been told, is more accurate) that there some gigantic left-wing propaganda machine, the equal of what exists on the right. This is the classic Karl Rovian tactic of blaming your opponent of the exact thing that you are doing. Listen up guys, there is no left-wing Fox News or Rush Limbaugh. There is no counterweight on the left that exists that pushes a liberal agenda as aggressively as right-wing media pushes the conservative agenda. It doesn't exist. You'll laugh and you'll point and give me the names of a dozen media outlets that prove me wrong, but you'd be incorrect. The vast liberal media conspiracy doesn't exist. It's in your head.

No kidding. Let me know if development stops. Then I will care. Far as I can tell, progress is still being made, albeit, slowly, but lots of games have a 6 or 7 year development cycle and are a helluva lot less ambitious.
