    No Man's Sky On Tonight Show With Stephen Colbert

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 October 2015

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqeN6hj4dZU   I swear to Jebas, half the reason I never post videos on here is because I can never remember how to embed the bloody things. Dx Halp. In any case, Sean Murray had a brief talk with Stephen Colbert while showing random snippets of planets during tonight's, um, Tonight Show with Stephen Colbert. Nothing really new in terms of information, but I...

    No Man's Sky Article From The Guardian

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 13 July 2015

    Original article found here; http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jul/12/no-mans-sky-18-quintillion-planets-hello-games The article has shiny pictures, so it might be the best spot to read it for those of you who don't mind following a link. I'll be posting in the thread a list of stuff that really stuck out for me, so if anyone gets hit with TL;DR feel free to stick around for that....

    When Do A Game's 'Mundane' Activites Suck You In?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 03 July 2015

    Games are a way to do things and experience sights that you will probably never (and hell, for your own safety, should never) actually attempt, whether it's having superpowers, fighting monsters in a fantasy environment, or simply being a total badass with a gun. You live a life of danger, intrigue, and all manner of derring-do... ...which sometimes involves getting drunk in a pub, playing darts...

    So, There's This No Man's Sky Thing Going On, On Twitch...

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 07 December 2014

    EDIT: After checking, the Night Under NMS has indeed ended, and it was indeed a concert. With very, very little shown of the actual game, very very very little of which was new. So, yeah. Kinda bummed about that. To be clear, I'm not even saying I think the band's bad or anything like that, I quite like some of their songs. I was just going into the stream expecting something a bit different, and...

    No Man's Sky (Game Informer cover, and some info)

    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/12/03/january-cover-revealed-no-mans-sky-3452523434.aspx   Apologies if a thread was already made about this, I swear I checked! D:   This month (well, January,) we bring you the Science Fiction Issue, headlined by the ambitious No Man's Sky. We flew out to Hello Games' Guildford offices in England to see new elements and get some...

    "I Swear, I Wasn't Planning To Spend That Much. O.O "

    in General Discussion, last active on on 07 December 2014

    So, as a fellow gearing up to get a PS4 this holiday season, step one was, unfortunately, acquire a new television, as the one I owned was a standard definition, fat-backed, older unit. It was an irritating expense on top of what was already going to be a five hundred dollar console purchase, taxes in, but meh, I decided to keep an eye open for any deals; the town I live in is a bit on the small...

    Procedural vs handcrafted; comparing City of Heroes to DC Universe Online

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 16 September 2014

    (Before I begin, I kinda am thinking of making a 'War Stories' and general discussion thread to reminisce about City of Heroes. Any former players who'd be interested in participating? =D Sometimes nice to talk about The Good Ol' Days.)I've kind of started thinking about the pros and cons of procedurally generated content, vs. hand crafting everything from the ground up, and inevitably I always...

    Sony Investing More In User-Driven Marketing?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 29 August 2014

    Bored again, SO RANDOM MUSINGS TIME! I was poking around the Infamous First Light photos thread, with the typical 'Oooooo... so... shiny... @_@ I wants...' thoughts flitting through my head, when I started to think about Sony's approach to user-driven content sharing. First, obviously, was the dedicated Share button, as although the Xbox One has its own recording and streaming capabilities,...

    Hypothetical: What If Microsoft Released A Kinect-Based Pure Entertainment Device?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 22 August 2014

    I'm bored, SO IT'S TIME FOR WHAT-IFS! =D Back during the initial pre-launch period of the Xbox One, Yusuf Mehdi spoke about how the console's ability to act as an All-In-One entertainment device, coupled with the utility of the Kinect sensor, would increase the potential market size, translating into more sales. He rather infamously added that the market could rise as high as 'One Billion,'...

    Allen Murray: "Sorry For All The Ads."

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 19 August 2014

    (Before we go anywhere, let me say I brought up this blog post because I thought it was both tongue-in-cheek funny, and an interesting behind-the-curtain look at an earlier time in the Xbox's lifespan. So, yeah, this isn't me trying to jab any of you about Xbox ads. xP ) http://blog.theilluminatedsquid.com/post/94215585076/10-years-in-games-sorry-for-all-the-ads Allen Murray, a former program...

    Man, The Destiny Bundle Pre-Orders On Amazon Have LEGS. o.O

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 17 August 2014

    http://www.amazon.com/best-sellers-video-games/zgbs/videogames#1 (Let me begin by pointing out, to avoid any confusion, that these charts keep track of sales trends, not overall sales, meaning that something at Spot Number One on the chart is only there because it sold the most in the past hour or so, not in total.) Out of my usual borderline fanatical interest in keeping track of sales trends,...

    Five Nights at Freddy's?

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 27 August 2014

    Anyone tried this game? Cost ranges from 10 dollars, to (I heard) 2.50 on Desura; very simple horror game. Not about gunning. Not even about running. You play a security guard who is stuck in a booth, with nothing for company but some dim lights, a pair of security doors on either side, a tablet that lets you monitor the security cameras, and animatronic animals kept in storage on the far side of...

    Prediction: PS4 Destiny Bundle Will Help Xbox One Win August NPD

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 27 September 2014

    "Whaaaaa?" As my debut prediction attempt on this site, to celebrate my fiftieth post, I have decided to make a risky prediction that may very well end up being wrong. The gist of it is that the Xbox One will outsell the PS4 in the U.S. for the month of August, as defined by the NPD results released for said month. However, the reasoning behind this is not that I believe the Xbox One will see a...
