I wonder if the Mac port will be as buggy as Psychonauts. Playing through the game right now, and while it plays as intended, it always forgets to stretch the image to my screen at startup, resulting in the image being displayed in the lower left corner. Changing the resolution back and forth fixes the issue, but every time you do this you risk crashing the game.

Also, this bird never thought of flying over the fence.

I don't think it is possible to have truly bad graphics anymore. If you are not going for true realism, and know your stuff, your game will look good by default.

Anyone seen this? It's a physics-based 3D platformer, seems to focus a lot on flying and supposedly has a high skill ceiling, like Mario 64. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1933452375/sulphur-nimbus-hels-elixir

Still means nothing. Films go into development all the time; doesn’t mean they always go into production. There was news a couple of years ago (or thereabouts) about Disney developing a Rescue Rangers live-action/CGI film in the vein of the Chipmunks movies, but I ain’t heard shit about that project in the intervening years, which leads me to believe it was shitcanned.

Did they announce all the details? Not really. Besides, Disney did not give the green light, it was just an idea that did not even go into pre-production.

In this case, we got the approval of the IP holder, a director who wants to do it, who is going to be in charge of the art, and the identity of the animation company.

Pixar has axed films with announced titles and plotlines that were in various stages of development. Until you see footage of the film being produced (or footage from the film itself), don’t get hyped.

That's mostly due to Microsoft making Xbox disks SUPER proprietary, pretty much unreadable by NON-Xbox readers.

And PS3 does not NEED to be emulated, since it's widely available, is almost entirely region-free, and already has HDMI with AT LEAST 720p.

And Jim just gave the game a 2/10 and is getting steamrolled hard by fanboys for having the nerve not to like it. Honestly if his complaints about it feeling super dated are true that's entirely his right. I wouldn't grade it that harshly, but since he's a guy who's easily pissed off by "chore" mechanics I can totally see how he would find it unforgivable.

Oh good. Bioware is actually going to finish making the game.

//youtube.com/watch?v=42-3GCq6gqoyoutube thumb

Also vids about talking about the Rumor that Bioware decided that working on the human assets was low priority so they farmed it out and also just went with the stock CyberScan models instead of designing from scratch and then not going in and tuning the faces.

https://www.geek.com/games/mass-effect-andromedas-facial-animations-were-reportedly-outsourced-1694894/

While the quantifies that as rumor and hearsay it does sync up with the opinion of a former Bioware Animator and what went wrong and what they didn't do.
