    Bethesda Is Doubling Down On Creation Engine. What Gives?

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 May 2019

    Doesn't a lot of the engine's underlying code date back to Fallout 3, possibly even Oblivion? You can't keep piling new features onto an engine that old, especially the sort of things required to make a Games as a Service title work, and not have things eventually start falling apart....

    Will the XBOX One outsell the SNES?

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 May 2019

    ironmanDX said: It will be available for purchase until 2022. Can you see it not selling 7 million in that time? 2.3 million for the remainder of the year... Easy.2.3 for next year? Easy. It's the year after it may fall below that... Which will probably not matter by that point. Available for purchase, yes, but consoles have a habit of seeing their sales drop off a cliff once their...

    Dragon Age 4 rumours, might be another 'game as a service'...

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 April 2019

    vivster said: I'm not worried at all. Now that Anthem failed so spectacularly everything will be fine. Unless DA4 becomes a full on MMO we'll be fine. Honestly, I'd prefer it if Dragon Age 4 were an actual MMO, as that's at least a tried and true genre. The Games as Service thing is basically the worst of both worlds....

    President Trump Signs Executive Order Protecting Free Speech On College Campuses | TIME

    Retro Games overrated vs underrated: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter.

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 March 2019

    I think Turok 1's ratings were pretty fair in the context of when it came out, and it's still an overall pretty fun game, but Turok 2 surpassed it in just about every way possible. (Well, aside from 2's ultimate weapon being kinda lame, but apart from that...)...

    Is BioWare near the end?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 February 2019

    The Fury said: Inquisition is a great game and I've logged my 2nd most hours on it out of all games I've played this gen (playing it again now). People complained about petty things like "There's too many fetch quests.", there are hardly any and if you don't want to collect the shards, don't. 50% of the larger missions are linear paths like DA:O and then we have an open world full of...

    Is BioWare near the end?

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 February 2019

    Andromeda alone was the type of game a developer typically doesn't recover from. Now, having released two of the absolute worst AAA games from this entire generation in the space of two years, there is no way back for Bioware. Absolutely none. I expect what we'll see now is the studio busted down to a skeleton crew to handle content for Anthem (assuming EA even considers it worth keeping...

    Lafiel said: so, which news sources do you recommend? Sad truth is, there aren't really any unbiased mainstream news sources in the UK; it's divided between a small handful of heavily left-wing outlets (The Guardian, the Daily Mirror, The Independent, the BBC to some extent) and everything else is heavily right-wing....

    CuCabeludo said: I hope so, because it should not have to take 2 years in a fight to do what you are supposed "free" to do. The UK could have immediately extricated itself from the EU at any point by revoking the law that took it into the old EEC. They chose the two year process because firstly they needed the time to prepare for it, and secondly because May would never have...

    Battlefield V sells 7.3m, falls short of EA Q3 expectations by 1m

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 February 2019

    Clearly not that great of a result... but, considering it wasn't all that long ago we were talking about the possibility of it selling worse than Hardline or possibly even Bad Company 2, it could have been MUCH worse....

    Update on Metroid Prime 4: Development restart. Retro Studios + Tanabe now working on it

    Heck, the first Metroid Prime restarted development from scratch several times from what I remember back in the day. This really isn't anything new, even for this particular (sub-)series....

    Brexit

    in Politics Discussion on 20 January 2019

    To be fair, both May and Corbyn have near-impossible balancing acts to pull off right now. On the one hand, the Conservatives' membership and the press are both overwhelmingly behind Brexit, but the big businesses who bankroll the party are generally against it, and certainly against a no-deal Brexit. And on the other hand, a large majority of Labour's traditional parliamentary seats voted to...

    fatslob-:O said: "It wouldn't feel as much like one half the country dragged the other half into something they hated" This view is incompatible with the consequences of democracy. If it were that simple then we wouldn't need a democracy and would instead opt for unity. A democracy exists solely to separate the mandate from the opposition ...  In theory, yes. In practice,...

    Brexit

    in Politics Discussion on 15 January 2019

    Well, May said she wanted to get in the history books when she first became PM, and she's certainly achieved that - first government ever to be held in contempt of parliament, and now her government's been on the receiving end of the worst defeat in a parliamentary vote in history, after losing the vote on her withdrawal agreement by a margin of about 230 votes. For reference, the previous worst...

    24 frames per second is starting to look awkward in 4k.

    in Movies Discussion on 13 January 2019

    Films have been produced in two dimensions and at 24fps for over a century now. No reason why that needs to change anytime soon. On a less luddite-sounding note, increasing the standard frame rate to 48fps would double the workload (and thereby cost) of visual effects....

    Nvidia Gets SALTY

    in PC Discussion on 12 January 2019

    shikamaru317 said: In the end, AMD gets the last laugh, it's looking like they got the contract for both Xbox Scarlett and PS5, so that is basically 160m+ APU's they just sold next gen. Was that ever seriously in doubt, though? nVidia has never made x86 CPUs, and neither Sony nor Microsoft seem in any hurry to change architectures again, so that basically ruled them out from the...

    Nvidia Gets SALTY

    in PC Discussion on 12 January 2019

    JRPGfan said: Look at what AMD did with their new Ryzen chips.They beat out the Intel 9900k (which is 180watt+) and do so at 130watts.They just had a massive improvement in perf/watt (for their cpu line), and at the same time finally managed to beat intel in cpu performance. Uh, what? The Ryzen 2700X is almost certainly better value for money than a 9900K, but the latter is...

    Nvidia Gets SALTY

    freebs2 said: Mind me, I don't have anything against AMD, but PS and Xbox use their chips not because they're superior to Nividia's but only because they're chepaer. It's more that when the PS4 and Xbox One were in the planning stages, devs made it absolutely clear that they wanted the CPU and GPU to all be part of the same chip. Intel's (integrated) GPUs are complete garbage,...
