    The hardcore console market seems to be shrinking

    in Sales Discussion on 05 August 2019

    Consoles just lost casual gamers. At least so far. People tend to forget Eyetoy, Singstar and Kinect for example. Attach rate has grown over the generations as well, AFAIK. People don't need handhelds or consoles for casual gaming anymore, though there still are casual gamers on consoles, but way less than there where in the good old days. And yes, Switch has a lot of core and hardcore...

    First-Person or Third-Person?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 June 2019

    Depends on the game and possibly genre. I like both, though i think first person often works better with a less developed character, more simple avatar. What i really dislike though is the over the shoulder third person far to many games have copied over the last 14 years. To me this is lacking the immersion of first person as well as the 'overview' of the classic third person view. ...

    Best FPS game of the 2000s

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 June 2019

    Neither Metroid Prime nor Fallout 3 are FPS. Fallout 3 is an RPG. You can play it without guns and even try playing totally peaceful (pretty tough though). Or you can use VATS which makes it more or less turn based like. Metroid Prime is a 3D Action Adventure, more precisely a 3D Metroidvania. ...

    Godzilla King Of The Monsters -Beautiful- Official Trailer(WB)

    in Movies Discussion on 06 June 2019

    Godzilla 2014 had a great 'human perspective' on the Kaiju. Like natural disasters. And though it's plot was pretty weak as well, it managed to have decent human characters. What it was missing was a bit more monster action. KotM has some nice nods to the japanese Godzilla series, the twins being one of them, but it lacks in human characters in so many ways. At the same time, all those Kaiju...

    Best FPS game of the 2000s

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2019

    Feels like i haven't logged in for a decade. The 2000s had so many great FPS. Half Life 2 was good at it's time, though to me never among the greatest. Battlefield and CoD, though never my FPS of choice, both have their roots in the beginning of the decade. Monolith did awesome games like Aliens vs. Predator 2 and of course FEAR. STALKER though it had it's flaws was a unique and to me actually...

    Switch TFLOPS : 1,024 ? 0,79 ? 0,393 ?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 January 2019

    Doom, Wolfenstein 2 and the likes show that Switch is far from a PS4One, yes. At the same time i can play those games on the go on a real mobile device, which is pretty great. And basically that's what Switch is about. Playing Doom at the hotel balcony late at night on a Greek island is something i couldn't have done with any other console....

    What Sound System you use for Gaming

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 December 2018

    AV-Receiver with higher quality DIY speakers (basically default for tv-sound) or Beyerdynamic respectively modded Superlux headphones or HyperX Cloud. Though i usually don't listen at high volumes my sub is 15" and fronts are 10" coaxial speakers. Center and rears are smaller though....

    Will "next generation" have a mid-upgrade like PRO and X?

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 November 2018

    Quantum computing also is something that is very fast in some cases but can be pretty inefficient in others. 3D circuitry is another thing, as actual manufactuirng prices could be the limiting factor. Right now it looks like there will be a massive slowing down at least, even with new materials and more for chip production....

    Will "next generation" have a mid-upgrade like PRO and X?

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 November 2018

    Intrinsic said: It depends on chip fabrication. It took 4yrs to go from 65nm to 28nm fabrication. And 6yrs to go from 2nm to 14nm. And about 4yrs to go from 14nm to 7nm (assuming there are no surprises). If it takes 7yrs for that node shrink to come? then that will be PS6 we are talking about. Though i think it's very likely, this is the most important point. There would have to...

    Super Mario Odyssey now fully playable on Yuzu Emulator

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 November 2018

    NightlyPoe said: Didn't the 3DS take forever to get a decent emulator? Most likely because of the very different GPU and API, i think. Tegra is well known hardware, and both GPU's from Switch and Wii U are close to the PC-hardware, Nvidia and AMD built. The CPU's are far from the nightmare CELL was. It's also very likely that both system architectures make a less...

    Your favourite game with a Meta below 75, and why

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 November 2018

    I don't care for meta-ratings. And there might be many older games with a meta below 75 i liked back in the day or still like. So, two games i really enjoyed where i know they scored quite low: Lollipop Chainsaw: I'm no Grasshopper or Suda fan actually, but i loved playing Lollipop Chainsaw. Probably because it was more game (in my opinion). Mainly though because it was simply fun. Mowing...

    Titanfall 2 Designer: Switch Is So Underpowered Third Party Support Will Be No Different Than Wii U

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 October 2018

    One very interesting thing about Switch third party support is that it's actually growing while at the same time Wii U didn't get anything besides some indies and Just Dance anymore. Yes, some games like Dark Souls Remastered or Diablo 3 are old. But they're coming quite some time after Switch released. Doom Eternal got anounced for Switch and will be coming next year. And there is an actual...

Furthermore, if he plans to promote his platform, he'll need the support of the legislative cameras and the population as a whole, and thus he'll need to deal with the opposition, of which you'll need to cooperate a...

    LGBT+ characters in video games

Can you help me remember some of them? 1) What do you think are some good and bad examples of LGTB+ representation in video games? 2) How do you feel about the quantity of LGBT+ characters in video games?

    Switch already has more games available/announced games than Wii U and 3DS

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 September 2018

    And yet people buy those games, as we can see again with Dead Cells right now. At the end of next year Switch should have more games than the DS ever had. Sure, many of them are indie games, but that doesn't make them lesser games....

    Still Look Good?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 August 2018

    What's important is how you play many of these games. Final Fantasy IX on a CRT looks pretty good for PS1. The Jak trilogy, GT4, Soul Calibur 2 and 3, Tekken 5, Dragon Quest VIII, Dark Chronicle, Final Fantasy X and XII (though with aliasing issues) and so many others look great in their original resolution on a good CRT.
