    Is this okay to be muslim in USA ?

    in General Discussion 2 hours ago

    The vast majority Americans are great. Like any country they have a certain proportion of idiots roaming around. American idiots seem to be a lot louder than idiots from other countries. The chances are that you won't actually meet any because they are too busy making their country look bad on the Internet... ...

    Last generation for physical copies? Capcom: Game sales are 80% digital, and rising

    How many units will Atari's new Atari VCS console sell in it's lifetime?

    in Sales Discussion 2 days ago

    When you say Atari, you do realise that Atari hasn't been around for 30 years or so? At best this is a company that has licensed the Atari logo. Definitely wait to see reviews *before* you spend your money! ...

    I'm pretty sure that if Playstation 5 sold only 14M Sony would simply leave the market and do something else. In any case, most rational adults know number sold doesn't particularly reflect quality - otherwise Justin Bieber is much better than Mozart. I don't really see anyone saying that Playstation is a flop, though. Maybe that's a "you" thing? ...

    How important are first party games to a console?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 June 2020

    The first party games are what set the tone for the entire marketing of a console. There's only so many adverts you can do zooming in on a plastic box... You picked Stadia as a comparison - you should look at that as "the technology prototype". It's at the same stage as Internet video was 15 years ago. Google aren't interested in the short term, they are thinking years into the future... ...

    I/O Throughput Data Speeds

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 June 2020

    IO speed refers to how quickly data gets into RAM from the hard disk. The speed to get from RAM onto the screen is much, much higher (for example DDR5 is 50Gb/s per channel). ...

    Why the PS5 should be backwards compatible with all Playstation consoles

    in Sony Discussion on 12 June 2020

    It's not just the power and capabilities, you also need to license IP (for example, IBM owns the Cell processor from the PS3). In any case, from Sony's point of view it's all about selling new hardware and new games, and you have to see backward compatibility in that light. So, if you want to play PS2, you are a Retro gamer, and you'll be one Ebay. Or you'll be buying your games one at a...

    Are cutscenes in games dying?

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 June 2020

    Cut scenes used to be separate videos, but these days they are mostly just rendered in realtime with the game engine. There isn't any particular reason to not put a high quality movie on the disk (apart possibly from the size), but the modern theory is that having a consistent look is important for immersion, so the game engine graphics are preferred. As to whether cut scenes as a thing are...

    Cross-gen support; what's your take?

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 June 2020

    Most companies will have game engines that can support cross gen compatibility without too much hassle.  I expect that we'll see a lot of PS4/PS5 games that are basically identical - obviously with cut down graphics for PS4.   Get used to hearing the phrase: "free PS5 upgrade codes when you buy the PS4 version".  It isn't logical to "ignore the new platform" or to "ignore the...

    Linus - Iíve Disappointed and Embarrassed Myself (re: PS5 SSD)

    in Sony Discussion on 07 June 2020

    To be honest, I never rated Linus' technical knowledge very highly. He seems like someone who knows his way around the a few websites to order computer parts, but does he even have a computer science degree? Has he worked as a software developer? Does he work on Linux in his spare time or something? That he was wrong about something highly technical does not surprise me. That he thought he...

    Xbox Series X's cross-gen approach is robbing players of the next-gen thrill

    in Microsoft Discussion on 17 May 2020

    The question is: will the next gen offer enough above the current gen? Current era games are usually limited by their budgets not the hardware. If the PS5 fulfils the next-gen thrill in the same way PS2->PS3 did then Microsoft is doing the wrong thing. If the result of the next gen is that games look a little better and load a little faster but basically play the same, then Microsoft's...

    The End of Evangelion Movie is trash and makes absolutely zero sense.

Picasso is a great comparison... although over the years I came to the conclusion that "Eva got lucky and painted 90% of a Picasso painting, then realised they weren't Picasso." It's still an amazing series though.  The fun is in the...

    The End of Evangelion Movie is trash and makes absolutely zero sense.

    in Movies Discussion on 08 May 2020

    The first half of the movie made sense, and was infinitely better than the original ending of the series. It suffered from "the author never really had a plan for an ending". Personally, I would have ended it as everything returning to normal with the Government having had the troops kill everyone at NERV and then "covering up" the whole saga. They could say that it was a criminal conspiracy with...
