    Gears 5

    in Microsoft Discussion on 13 September 2019

    Been working my way through act 1 and I'm gobsmacked by some of the visuals. This really does feel like the first game I've played (I haven't played every game out there) that could count for me as deserving next-gen status. Really impressive so far what they've managed to achieve. ...

    Masters Degree

    in General Discussion on 05 February 2018

    As a developer myself, I would say no it's not worth it in the IT field. My friend did a masters and then went on to do a PhD. During the time he was still at uni, I gained commercial experience which is far more valuable to employers. Getting a masters doesn't automatically give you a more senior position. He started out where the rest of us have and now hes getting the all important experience...

    What is the truth about Hololens and backwards compatility?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 19 June 2015

    They can't show it in first-person as you are not wearing the device. If you were you'd be seeing a first person perspective. To get around this and to see (more or less... emphasis on more here) what that person is seeing, they're using a camera which can see what they're seeing from the camera-man's perspective. The hololens doesn't have the capability to record and transmit that data which is...

    Infinity Blade originally conceived as a Kinect game.

    in Microsoft Discussion on 15 December 2010

    I bought this for the iPhone, and personally I don't see what all the fuss is about. I wish I had checked for a demo first as its incredibly boring and predictable. Think of a point and click adventure and add a bit of counter-blocking, dodging and swiping (when prompted) and that is pretty much it. Its so strictly an on-rails game that it is devoid of fun. When I first had a go with Epic Citadel...

    Gran Turismo 5 Review Summary

    in Sony Discussion on 02 December 2010

    kowenicki said: tronied said: I have both GT5 and Forza 3 and in general haven't noticed any long load times in GT5 (except the initial install). Forza 3 on average takes about 30 seconds give or take to load a race, so i'm not sure why that video shows Forza in such a bad light. I'd say in terms of loading they were about equal. I don't have a problem either with the interface in GT5...

    Kinect in Japan (impressions)

    in Microsoft Discussion on 24 November 2010

    While its certainly no judge of how well its doing, Kinect is at #3 in the amazon.co.jp bestsellers list which is fairly impressive: http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/bestsellers/videogames Also with a review of 4.5/5 from 89 reviews its showing people are liking it. Saying that, although Kinect is in the best sellers list, the 360 is nowhere to be seen, so I guess its just the 1 million install base...

    Spike TV the new home for 360 Press Briefing

    in Microsoft Discussion on 14 May 2010

    I think its a bit of a stupid idea for them to only stream their conference on one website. IGN, Gamespot, Gametrailers et al are all flaky at best when it comes to E3 with the sheer number of people trying to watch it. Now forcing all those users to look at one website will obliterate their bandwidth and probably crash their server / website....

    epicberserk said:The actual annoucement is ghost recon future soldier fall 2010 and summer will be muliplayer beta for conviction Sauce? Or is that one of those joke off-hand remarks? Sarcasm doesn't travel very well over text. Surely they would delay any big announcements until E3.   [EDIT] Source: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=234200...

    Microsoft Courier

    in Microsoft Discussion on 29 January 2010

    I am definitely interested in getting the courier, but I was hoping they would have more details on it by now... like a release date. I love the idea of the dual screen setup where you can close it like a book. MSI is creating something similar, but i'll have to wait and see which one is better. I must admit, I was completely underwhelmed by the iPad as buying a tablet which doesn't...

    MS: Xbox 360 has sold 39m units

    in Microsoft Discussion on 07 January 2010

    FKNetwork said: Microsoft head honcho Steve Ballmer has told a CES 2010 audience that there are over 39 million Xbox 360s in homes around the world. So thats 39 million consoles in peoples homes, not in vendors - makes for interesting numbers. Still, its not like no-one has been mis-quoted before, or got their speech wrong. Impressive though......

    Forza 3 Reviews

    A french review site has given it 8/10, but their review is really really bad: http://www.eurogamer.fr/articles/forza-motorsport-3-test?page=1 In the review (translated) it states "Forza 3 is currently (after the release of Need for Speed Shift and before that of Gran Turismo 5) the best racing game ever." - but gave it an 8/10?  He also said, he wants to be enthusiastic about the...

    Natal Ricochet lags and has jittering.

    in Microsoft Discussion on 25 September 2009

    Its amazing that out of a mostly positive preview, you pick out the only two lines which are in any way negative and hail it as a failure a year before release. Also, although he said it was jittery he also said something else which you "accidentally" missed out. Here, i'll quote it for you: "And if you try to stand perfectly still, you'll notice a little bit of a jittery motion on the avatar....
