    Sticks and Stones

    in General Discussion 3 days ago

    I think it's one of those things that comes in peaks and troughs over the years. Yes, nowadays the slightest hint of any bigotry from a person can be leapt on and used to ruin them... but I don't think that's a whole lot different to how in the 1950s (and arguably even as late as the 1980s) saying that you thought the Communists might have a good idea or two was a good way of instantly losing...

    Least liked console from each of the big 3 and why

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 August 2019

    Nintendo: Wii U. Actually a close call between this and (please don't hurt me) the Gamecube, as both systems had an 18-month spell with tons of great games, and then absolutely nothing. However, the Gamecube was at least a well-designed system that was never going to have any prayer of competing against the juggernaut that was the PS2; by contrast, from a pure hardware design standpoint the Wii U...

    How did AMD make Zen 2 faster?

    in PC Discussion on 02 August 2019

    haxxiy said: It's fairly amusing to have AMD with the IPC crown for the first time since the Athlon 64, that's for sure. Right now, Intel are getting absolutely slaughtered in the server arena, and are able to compete in a few desktop situations but on the whole are behind, with their main saving grace being a mobile CPU design that looks to have a lot of potential if they can get it...

    Are there any years worse for Nintendo than 2015 and 2016?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 July 2019

    TheMisterManGuy said: I terms of the 3DS, I'd say Nintendo also made the mistake of assuming third parties and developers will blindly trust them with the 3DS because of its predecessor's pedigree, so they decided to cut corners on Launch titles, so that third parties can take the spotlight. But when it became apparent that third parties didn't have much ready either due to them still...

    Any news for future Ace Attorney stuff

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 June 2019

    Unfortunately, I think the Ace Attorney series is pretty much dead at this point; Spirit of Justice apparently only barely broken even, and Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 was a colossal bomb. There'll very likely be an HD re-release of Apollo Justice at some point, as they already remade all the artwork for the iOS/Android release, and maybe an HD remaster of Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice, but...

    Digital Foundry Analysis: In Theory: The Witcher 3 on Switch - Is A Port Actually Possible?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2019

    Part of me wonders whether it's actually The Witcher II which is being ported to the Switch, and it's being misreported as III. Considering that II already has a 360 port, it'd probably be easy to bump its resolution up to 1080p, maybe make a few other graphical improvements, and slap it on the Switch. (Then again, they said the same thing about Saint's Row the Third, and look how that turned...

    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....

    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...

The UK could have immediately extricated itself from the EU at any point by revoking the law that took it into the old EEC.

    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....

    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...
