    in Gaming Discussion on 03 June 2016

    But yeah regarding doom being technically superior because it is 1080p/60fps Ridge Racer 7 and Wipeout HD were 1080p/60fps on the PS3... does that mean they are graphically impressive? no, it just means they are throwing around their lower res assets twice as fast as uncharted shifts its ones around the screen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la0O0SyM3gg Still feel the same way?...

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 June 2016

    There was almost an air of arrogance in the "Making of Uncharted 4" videos. It was like: "We are Naughty Dog, we are enthusiastic about our game, and you know it’s gonna be good. Even the delays seemed arrogant. There was no urgency to get the game out. I'm not saying that they needed to rush, but the multiple delays leading up to release (especially the last one) killed a lot of the...

    Should kids have a chance to grow up and decide what gender they are, or should parents change their sex early on?

    in General Discussion on 01 June 2016

    So how sure are you it's all biologically set at birth.Anyway no clue what Spurge is watching, but if it is a case of ambigous genetalia, the earlier the better for the child. Well, unless they guess wrong :/ I happen to know a male with deformed genitalia who his dad, against the doctors recommendations, refused to let him be made into a girl. He was a shy, reserved kid (didn't...

    in General Discussion on 01 June 2016

    Fact # 1. You cannot choose your sex, it is decided naturally at conception.   Fact # 2. If anyone believes they are trapped in the wrong body they have a serious psychological problem and need to seek help immediately.   Fact # 3. Pretending to be of the opposite sex or mutilating your body will NEVER enable you to change what is biologically set.   Fact # 4. The fact...

    Is There Any Reason To Buy an Xbox now?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 02 March 2016

    With Xbox being more of a service than a hardware platform, one must admit that the Xbox brand has been seriously devalued. To anyone who has a decent PC and a PS4, the decision is straightforward. All Xbox exclusives will be coming out on PC so it simply doesn't matter what hardware upgrades Microsoft give to the Xbox, the PC versions will always remain superior. Therefore there is absolutely no...

    Nintendo is Like Apple and Sony is Like Microsoft

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 February 2016

    Anyone who watched the keynote for the original iPhone knows that there is something special about Apple. Check it out here if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN4U5FqrOdQ Apple pretty much invented the personal computer. They were the pioneers. They were the ones who had the creative genius to harness the available technology and with their vision, craft it into something broadly...

    Is Catering To Women, Homosexuality and Minorities Restricting Game Developers' Creative Freedom?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 October 2015

    bouzane said: Nope. The Neo-Progressive / SJW backlash against developers who refuse is restricting creative freedom though. Let's hope that this kind of behavior does not become more prevalent. Thing is, most of us have drank the Kool Aid and now we can't even see that we are being bullied....

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 October 2015

    Aeolus451 said: First of all, I'm not gonna lump "women" in with minorities because they are not and it's too generalized to use in this way. If a dev changes something in their game to pander to minorities or to be "progressive" enough then yes but then again, a lot of things restrict a game dev's creative freedom. It's rare though to see any business cater to minorities unless that's...

    Do you feel that we have reached a balanced ratio of male protagonists vs. female protagonists?

    There doesn't need to be a balance. People create what they want. If one gender dominates as a result, the game needs to be judged for it's merits as a game period....

    Digital Foundry vs Xbox One backwards compatibility

    I predicted it. And it's gonna get harder as the games become more complex. The number one request is Red Dead Redemption...an open world game...the absolute worst case scenario for Microsoft engineers.  My thread was locked for speaking the truth, but truth will come out anyway....
