New systems are upscale not 4k native from last round of conversations of those getting into the new dev kits.

So the newest line I've heard "Well at least now we'll be getting 60fps HD(1080p)"

How many years behind are consoles on that?

I know next year they'll be rolling out 1440p monitors and laptop screens as a regular higher end thing. Since everyone has just about given up on the idea of jumping straight from 1080 for 4k (2160p) even with this new gen of Graphics cards from what I've been hearing and reading.

It's the only thing they can care about. More computation intensive stuff like physics and AI routines will stay bare bones until the consoles can actually start focusing on those, too. Which they're not anywhere close to, since they're like a decade behind in power and still struggle just to make games run smoothly while having slightly prettier graphics than they had in 2009.

Does framerate even count as graphics? What you see in front of your eyes is the easiest readout, but video games are a visual medium to begin with. Bad or choppy framerate due to bad optimization/computers leads directly to bad gameplay more than having bad graphics does.

Very true. Most games aren't properly optimized to use more than two processing threads let alone the eight or more you find on higher end setups and that isn't even going into their inability to handle SLI (Nvidia dropped support for three and four card rigs with the 1000 series) even now two decades after this first introduction Or higher memory capacities of cards and ram.

Recent best optimized (programmed) game I've seen was New Doom. The game would split the load across all threads evenly and not concentrate on just the first one or two causing a laggy bottleneck.

Worst would be Arkham Knight, thought I've heard it had been made at least playable with the last of the patches.

Xbone will have Tomb Raider which from what I've gleamed they've abandoned the original trilogy writing and are now going to Nathan Drake this franchise anew.

And PlayStation will have whatever NaughtyDog will come up with after Uncharted or reboot it or just turn Last of Us into that.

Looking over things in games like Deus Ex now in the age of Telltale and their games with "choices" Man do a lot of games ring hollow when you actually look at how they handle the idea that "You decisions shape the game world".

Though I will say the Telltale Batman series so far feels a bit better in that department than some of their previous titles. Doesn't stand out as much as older titles.

So in the path that Deus Ex is taking to become a James Bond Spy game. Will the Illuminati be outed at some point their massive Volcano and or moon base be destroyed and Adam Jensen fly off to shag Malik for a few days?

I mean I'm really liking the build up its going with establishing them as pretty much the SPECTRE of their world and Jensen and whatever band of misfits he can get in touch with going after them.

I just want a solid ending after the next two chapters (since HD was the first of a three part series) and the timeline diverges. Because Invisible War is a terrible way to end all of this.

MG Survive doesn't... actually look that bad.
It's DLC-priced, got new gameplay features on top of the super solid mechanics of MGSV, and seems like a fun time with friends.

Wasted potential? Sure. But we weren't ever gonna get a solid follow up to the MG franchise without Hideo. I'm not too broken up about it. Mainly because this seems better than just pachinko. I resigned myself to never having MGS again so this just seems better than the course let me anticipate.

There's also a psychological aspect to it. When the userbase is responsible for something, they become more invested in it--it's why, for example, video games that allow user-created content tend to last way longer as social phenomena than games that don't. Users get invested when they can contribute. Even if that's in purely clerical ways like this--just think of how people want to become mods or admins of forums they post on despite no pay. It's gratifying to be part of the process.

Well the basics from there are Wolverine and Cyclops. Then Deadpool and Cable. If they went with Including FF then that would likely be Ben Grimm, Sue with her shields and Invisibility, Johnny I don't know as he's pretty much a projectile based character and would need a big arena to really shine.

As for Reed, I'd rather scrap him and just use Kamala with some ClayFighter type combo styles since that's more in tune with her character.

IIRC the devs put the Super Skrull in the game precisely because they didn't want the Fantastic Four. The mutants are too popular and iconic to be entirely left out, but I think we wont see as many of them as in past games.

What I really do wonder is, are they going to have the balls to put the newest versions of the characters in the game? Like, have Riri instead of Tony, or Miles instead of Peter?

Given time and under different writes Miles could be something more than a horribly OP wannabe. Then he might fit well into a Fighting Game Narrative. But right now it would be "Because Peter is Busy."

Tony Stark gets storylines about substance addiction, his arrogance, and being a colossal dictatorial asshole. Peter gets storylines about teen angst, money woes, GREAT RESPONSIBILITY and clone bullshit.

Most of what I've read about Miss America doesn't give her much besides being liking girls and also being a generic bad tempered asshole who likes to hit things a lot. It just reminds me of the bad fanfics I used to read in the early 2000s where the mary sue hero's big character flaw is she's quick to violence and beats people up who insult her, but the other characters in the story are like it's OK that's just how she is haha, they probably deserved it anyway and it never really bites her in the ass or anything (not saying MA is actually a proper mary sue, just that her character is badly written like one). She's not very funny, she doesn't have any endearing major insecurities, heck if they made her more lesbian by giving her a long term girlfriend for her to open up around that would've made her way better than how she is right now.
They also never actually do anything with her US theme which makes me wonder why anyone even bothered, because the only thing she even has to do with the US is it's part of her name and the colors of her clothes. I guess she lives there too but so do 99% of superheroes in the Marvel universe and they don't call themselves American Squirrel Girl or the Totally Awesome Green Arizonian or anything.
I guess one problem is she's from a team book so they don't have room to give her more interesting character traits but still. Basically my point is, Kieron Gillen is way overrated.

Very few times is sexuality handled right or anywhere close to not being shallow as something meant more for the reader or players interest than something that is part of the character.

Obsidian's New Vegas had some good ones with interesting back story to unfulfilled loves and failed ones.

Bioware likes to try a lot and Dragon Age Inquisition was better than most at it by making romantic interest feel a bit more like a relationship than just an achievement to have. But still not as good as making them feel like a full person aside from Sera since she had a list of hangups that would come about depending on how the PC acted.

Bioware is always very uneven in their writing. You can see the seams where all the parts were stitched together.

Witcher has some interesting bits on that meeting a guy whom his lord kicked him out for having an affair with his son. Only actual main game time it came up though was with Ciri. In response to a girl asking if Ciri liked her brother and she can answer she's into girls. Which is accurate, kinda.

Short of it is everything needs better writers closer to Obsidian and CD Projekt latter who may be fighting a hostile takeover attempt.

Microsoft seems to always have a problem knowing what they want to do. Heck even Windows departs and gets messed up more times than not with Windows 7 being the only clear one with an identity outside the originals and that was just "Don't be Vista." Every other version since has tried to be multiple things to the part of just being unpleasant overall.

And XBox Classic was a game console which had a host of unique attempts on it and every thing after that has just become homogenized with maybe a sparse number of games that try something different. Problem is everyone seems to be trying the same different thing so there are like four game that are "different" from usual stuff but all come off as thematically similar.

Sony isn't that much different. Their VR experience not looking that more different than the other two save maybe a bit more polished in places due to the level of development on it. I still like the HTC Vive the most of the current waves since VALVE likes to tinker and experiment and Sony is still using old controllers from their last movement interaction setup.

Smartglass could be something for the XBox but that is still a wait in see how it goes in development.

I've also heard that a big part of it was third party companies wanting to focus on consoles, and devs getting used to the PlayStation toolkit(s). Microsoft wanted to make sure they could keep those third parties developing on their platforms, and released Xbox as a defensive measure to ensure that. While Xbox had exclusives, I believe developing games for it was very similar to working on stuff for Windows. Now that it's much easier to develop for both their and Sony's products at the same time, it makes sense that we'd see the Xbox line start to get devoured by Windows. Back when the first Xbox released it wasn't a simple matter just to port stuff across systems, you had to have people who knew the architecture for every system you wanted the game on, and it was sometimes almost as costly as making two seperate games. That isn't the case anymore.

A another group finds out that Ellie is immune and wants to use her to make a cure and is holding Joel or someone else she's come close to hostage.

A settlement of "immune" citizens is under assault by said group to capture them or learn what it is that keeps them immune (ends up they are just cautious and have filter tech or something in gas masks that keeps spores out)

Or there is talk of another I immune person with some name like "the caretaker" and Ellie wants to find them in better hopes of understanding her place in things. Turns out they are nuts and believe their immunity gives them some "devine right" to judge other survivors.

Why are wrestling games getting WORSE over the years?
replyreportdelete
201404
Mr. StonezWb42fBPMM
>201403

Simple explanation? There’s really only one wrestling game per year, and it sucks ass.

Longer explanation? Way back in the year 2000, WWE and THQ partnered together to release WWF SmackDown! on the PlayStation One. That game was developed by Yuke’s Future Media Creators. Since that game, Yuke’s has been the lead developer on every subsequent game in the franchise (from WWE SmackDown to WWE SmackDown vs. Raw to WWE to WWE 2K). It shows every year, too: Every subsequent game has been building on top of the previous game using an kitbashed engine with roots still firmly planted in the original SmackDown! engine — right down to recycled animations from the PSOne games being used up until (and possibly during or even past) the PS3 era. Not even the jump from THQ to 2K (and the subsequent partnership between Yuke’s and Visual Concepts) has fixed the issues inherent with using a highly modified version of a gameplay engine that was initially created over fifteen years ago. And given the state of the American professional wrestling industry, WWE games are basically the only games that matter. So you’re stuck with shitty wrestling games because WWE dominates the wrestling landscape, no developer/publisher worth a shit wants to make an unlicensed competitor to WWE games, and WWE can’t be fucked to let 2K build an entire new engine from scratch.

The big problem with FNAF as the series stands right now lies in its lack of proper (and coherent) closure to the major storyline. I commend Scott for finding a new way to extend the franchise’s lifespan; FNAFSL really does change the formula up enough to make SL and at least one more sequel worth the revival. But his efforts to complicate the story just so he can keep people guessing about it have really undermined his gamemaking ability. We’re ready for the climax — ready for him to explain the story in a coherent way once and for all — and he doesn’t seem to care about that.

I’d call that the biggest problem with FNAF4, too: Fans wanted an actual climax to the FNAF story, but alls they got was a mindfuck that didn’t do shit to explain anything.

Blizzard just released an Overwatch comic that shows Tracer is in a lesbian relationship (no, not with Widowmaker), which is interesting because everybody had assumed the LGBT character was going to be Zarya. Plus, Tracer is the game's face character, which makes it a somewhat bold move.

I mean Medic and whomever is always a joke because of the tendency to pocket Medic. Nobody gives a shit or is badgering Valve to make it real. Hell the one time someone tried to be definitive was the one time Vavle fired someone. Is the only reason people are so obsessed with Overwatch is Tits?

I never got "hardcore" gay vibes from her, but I certainly always thought she was a frontrunner for the Homosexual Olympics. Or at least the Non-Heteronormative Olympics. Was it actually confirmed she was gay-gay (as opposed to bi, pan, demi, what have you), or just that she's in a same-sex relationship?

Defintely, if you can stomach the WoW art style. Played it on PS4 and it's got a ton of content, you get legendaries and good equipment at a reasonable pace and the postgame content is actually good enough that it kept me playing for a bit after getting the Platinum. Path of Exile is free, though, so you might want to try that one first if you feel like playing a loot grinder. I know some people really hate that game for whatever reason, but I think it's still the best one of those around.

It's really not. The console wars don't really have much of an effect on the hobby as a whole. Neither Microsoft nor Sony are really innovating with their consoles, so they don't represent meaningful competition for one another in terms of driving hardware innovation. Sony and Microsoft consoles are effectively interchangeable at this point, other than what exclusives they get--and that doesn't represent meaningful competition, since if they didn't have two consoles, the game companies would still be making those games, they'd just be releasing it on whichever system was the prominent one.

Nintendo innovates with their consoles, of course, but in Hardcore Gamerville, Nintendo's innovations are "gimmicks," so (even though Microsoft and Sony both tend to implement whatever Nintendo's newest innovation is in the next iteration of their own console) they aren't counted as meaningful competition even though they do more to get Sony and Microsoft to innovate than either does for each other.

Yeah, and even as the Nintendo Fanboy that I am, I'll admit that their setup will probably be better than Nintendo's on technical merits. Nintendo comes up with disruptive technology, explores it a while, then moves on to the next thing. Sony and Microsoft perform iterative improvements on Nintendo's innovations that make for better tech that makes less of a splash because Nintendo's already done so much pioneering that they're stuck playing catch-up, even though their tech, and sometimes their games, are strictly better. They don't get the advantage of novelty to become the classics that Nintendo's stuff does, but they are frequently objective improvements on what Nintendo has already done.

I'm not sure if they're interested in VR at all, at the moment. Like maybe they will be some day, but I suspect at the moment it's not even on their radar. Nintendo seems to be a lot slower to adopt other companies' innovations than they are to do their own thing--look how they STILL resist putting together an XBox or Playstation style online experience for their consoles, for example, despite the proven popularity and functionality.

I mean I'm not necessarily going to say that's something that needs to change--maybe going their own way and ignoring what the competition is doing is what allows them to come up with new ideas in the first place--but it's noticeably inconvenient at times.

That sounds like a really stupid thing to mock them for, given the way people claim to value "journalistic integrity" in games journalism. They held back the review because they weren't able to get a good enough feel for the game to judge. That seems like a good call to me.

But I'm being silly here. I know that difficulty-based-gatekeeping is a thing in gamer circles. I'm just pointing out the stupidity of it because I don't feel like letting them continue normalizing their circlejerk. Not because I actually think I'll ever be able to convince sperglords not to sperg.

One fellow on another forum I frequent recently used that Polygon Doom video as part of his argument that Polygon hates video games. Not "is bad at video games" or "is hopelessly at sea at video games," this guy believes that Polygon actively despises video games.

Now, bearing in mind Polygon is a video game review site and LPer's curse is, y'know, a thing that exists, that this dude immediately leapt to the assumption that VG reviewers are intentionally sabotaging the medium they have chosen to make their living on says a lot more about the insecure paranoiacs holding these intense hateboners for video game journalism than about video game journalism itself.

That means fixing that mid game which collapsed in on itself. Adding content to provide a better transition. Because that game really needs it.

I know DLC is supposed to clear up some of that. But as it stands its jarring and confusing.

Also they need to find out why the larger companion system was scrapped. Because before that mid game encounter you are told "Choose Three of your companions." Which usually means a player has to choose which three do what but the option doesn't occur in part because it can't since only three exist.

So something is missing.
