Welp, I got the Borderlands 2 Vita. It was get the old model, get the slim model by itself, or the bundle all for the same price. I honestly was thinking of getting the original since the screen was apparently sex if sex was a screen on a handheld gaming device, but I really game on the go and opted for the ergonomics instead. I bet the game doesn't even fit on the included memory card, but ehh.

Hmm, according to the legal spiel, the bundle code can be used for two systems under the same account. So if I find a good deal (like during winter sales), I can get another Vita and play co-op with my little brother, if I'm reading it right.

Whats Really Happening in the Destiny Alphayoutube thumb

Having a blast with the Destiny Alpha. I don't normally play online games and I wasn't even a Halo devotee, but this game has me hooked. The Online co-op mission was a thrill to play; Capture the Flag was also fun (although, I suck at getting kills); and there's plenty of side missions scattered across Old Russia. Even in its alpha stage, Destiny is visually beautiful. Some great lighting and scenery to view.

My only concern with this game is whole sci-fi world Bungle is building with Destiny will end up being forgettable. The Navi robot has more of a personality in the E3 trailer than shown in the single-player mission. This may be a personal issue, though. The lore of Mass Effect and Skyrim bore the fuck out of me, but I know there's a lot of people out there who adore them

In a smart world, Sony would go "Oh, hey, you've rented this game X times for Y total dollars, which happens to be >= the MSRP. Therefore, the game is now yours to keep!"

This won't happen. Incidentally, I'm surprised that Steam hasn't tried something like this; they do "free play" weekends for games fairly regularly, and I think that titles <12 months with middling reviews would benefit greatly from "rentals", even if they have demos. Ideally, the renter would only have to pay the full MSRP less the rental price if they decided to fully purchase it.

Excluding the tone down image of the Mudokon pop, I think New 'n' Tasty is shaping up fine.

On the subject on tone, /vr/ (http://archive.foolz.us/vr/thread/1761247/#q1761247) recently talked about the original Oddworld games and how Exoddus cranked up the humor. I commented about Much's Oddysee being more silly than morbid and how that didn't work. What I'll always remember about Abe's Oddysee is how the dark the story was, yet, these little moments of oddball humor kept the game from being a downer. That tone in balance was perfect and I want to see that again in the next Oddworld game.

Oddworld_ New 'n' Tasty_20140722124405.jpg
19201080
Played a good amount of New 'n' Tasty today. Gotta say I'm loving it so far. New control scheme is a huge improvement from the original, although there are a few moments where death is still caused by not jumping by the right amount. I usually annoyed when 2D games prohibit use of the D-Pad (Strider remake), but it makes sense to use the analog stick in this game.

The save points and quick saves are very helpful when trying to guide Mudokons to safety. Didn't realize Abe has a health bar now, but it works to limit the instant deaths caused by tiny mistakes. Scrabs and multiple gun shots still do you in. Even with the saves, there's still some challenging puzzled in this games. Currently playing on normal. May try Hard after beating the game (which I believe is more like the original, in terms of vulnerability).

Now that the game has officially been released, I can finally mention my surprise in discovering there were 299 Mudokons in need of saving. 45 died because I left the factory too early. Not all the secret areas are located in the same place in the original, I think, because of the new perspective.

I've only played the 360 demo and thought it was okay. Maybe it's because I'm not really a builder, but I wasn't as engaged with Minecraft, like everyone else was. With that said, I think a game like Minecraft is best suited for handhelds, so I might get the Vita version, if I decide to give it another go.

Damn impressive the retail version is holding on strong at the sales charts.

After all the shit that happened in the last few weeks, this bit of "internet drama" is utterly pleasant. Though it definitely stinks for the guys who don't get their waifu swag just because they live in a different country. As European myself, I can relate. We get shat on nigh constantly when it comes to games that aren't grand strategy or point'n'clicks.

So the Yuropistan PSN sale made me finally cave in. Got Demon Gaze and Atelier Totori+. Demon Gaze was getting praised to high heavens by everyone who played it, so I knew that I would eventually get it at some point anyway. And I always kinda wanted to get into the Atelier series, because they seem comfy as fuck and I was told Totori would be the best place to start. But both of these games are gonna be goddamn time vampires...

Oh okay, Demon Gaze has that kinda thing where regular enemies of an area do like 5-10 damage and then the boss suddenly does 200, while you still have 150 hp max after half an hour of grinding. I don't think I like that.

Also, a bunch of other announcements during that conference, that hardly anyone in the West outside of the hardcore weeb audience probably cares for (not in the least because some of them likely won't come out in the West). So apart from the usual fare of ports and "definitive editions" there's a new Ys, Disgaea 5, a new Senran Kagura, a Dragon Quest musou (I know this basically prints money in Japan, but yawwwwn), a new 2hu, God Eater 2 Rage Burst, Yakuza 0, which takes place in 1988, and a waifu simulator for Project Morpheus made by fucking Tekken Team (wat?).

Why do you people ask for an FF7 remake over and fucking over? There's absolutely no way it wouldn't suck and/or tarnish the original. There is a way to make it a good remake, and Square COULD do that, but everyone would bitch over things being different and fresh. They wouldn't go that far. So instead of reworking the game from the ground up they take the original game and change JUST enough to where it seems fresh, but since the things they change don't mesh well with what was unchanged (the bane of all remakes) it'll fall flat on its face.

>We knew early on that we didn’t want to just up-res Ratchet & Clank for PS2. We started out thinking of Ratchet & Clank on PS4 as a “re-imagining” of the 2002 original, revised to tie in with the deeper version of Ratchet’s origin story (as seen in the film). We envisioned a curated Ratchet & Clank experience that borrowed from the spirit of the classic PS2 games while infusing some of the best elements from the Ratchet & Clank Future games.

>We ended up with a new game, with elements based on the original — but now with modern controls, several new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, all new boss fights, new flight sequences, and more… all constructed to take advantage of the graphical prowess of PS4. Throw in James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, and you have a new beginning.

Sony killed it this year. Even though a lot of the games showcased were multiplat, the fact that they showed Last Guardian, FF7 remake and Shenmue III all on the same day pretty much seals the deal for who's going to win this gen in terms of sales. The fact that they're multiplat doesn't even matter. Plus they just kept showing game after game after game, they spent their presentation time on just showing games instead of talking about them or making awkward jokes. The only system-related stuff they talked about was social media crap, and they didn't give much focus to that at all. Sony seems to be the only one to really "get it" so far.

And wasn't Sony the company pushing the PS4 as the "central entertainment hub" machine a couple of years ago? I know MS was doing it with the XBone, but I think Sony laid it on a bit thick too.

He's gone into further detail about it before. More into how it's flatly disadvantageous to he customer and how customer support of the practice makes no practical sense unless you're a fanboy.

In this video he said the only advantage it could have would be to tease each other about them. Which is, as he says, childish and spiteful. No one but those vested in the console company have any reason to cheer over it. That's what he's saying.

So this was released three years ago by Media Molecule, obviously using the sort of tools made for Dreams but presented in a way that makes it seem more like something other developers could also use for their own games, as well as users making stuff at home. That's good, since I'm pretty sure even if it for some reason isn't quite producing finished work it'd at least help games get prototyped first to try out new ideas more often.

Nintendo's exclusives are mostly first/second party or sponsored directly by them, so it's a different situation. If not for Nintendo these games wouldn't exist, as opposed to where Sony/Microsoft are paying third parties to cut their customer base in half.
I think Jim Sterling also made some similar points in one of his videos once.

They're further only implemented on the one console, which allows the game to rely on the particulars of the system, simplifying development. He specifically said the complaint was about one or two things being exclusive despite the entire rest of the game being ported. If the base engine could be ported well enough but not a handful of elements, what made those parts more difficult to run on other consoles?

I still think timed exclusives are an importan business move. Especially for games based on social and mob mentality like COD where its like, "play 24 hours day one, leave it by next week."

No, I wouldn't say it's the cuteness so much as the whole "yearning to bring together everything of sentimental value" metaphor it's built around. And not on the part of the creator, who likely believes in it, just EA for featuring it.

Quick warning: If you're using the DS4 for gaming on your PC, DON'T upgrade to Windows 10. Programs like Inputmapper no longer work on it. You can only use your DS4 for games that support it natively anymore.

There's a "quick" and dirty fix for the DS4 issue. Turn DS4Windows on, enable "Hide controller", terminate explorer.exe in the task manager, connect your controller and start up explorer.exe again. It might take a few academic turn-it-off-and-on-agains until you no longer get an error message in DS4Windows, but so far it worked for me.
