Digital Foundry mentioned the stuff in the video I linked like:
poor and uneven frame rates
Aggressive double v-sync
lack of d-pad support
Link having no smoothing animations (ie he snaps to each of the 8 directions, he does not smoothly transition between them)
the fact that this would have...
Which do you prefer and why?
This whole subject came to me when I read a comment on youtube.
What the random person said, really had me thinking. I can really see the point there. Just explaining what you see in some footage, even spending hours to go through every frame of the...
I think the black eyes and frown do that. There's a lot to be said about how your eyes can show your emotion.
I agree with you that the final finish is really good but the pose and facial expressions are lacking in a few ways.
This analysis is really good, a must watch for anyone interested in the game.
Note Well - this is better than any review out there as it tells us exactly what we want to know without any spin, bias or developer ass kissing.
Personally I don't care that he did it. However . . . it is very hypocritical of him to push his discrimination agenda while attacking people for doing similar things to what he did back then.
One rule for him and one rule for everyone else does not go down well with the general public.
Here's what the amiibo looks like in detail
One of the major differences with this amiibo is the gloss finish. As far as I can remember all of the amino before this one has a matt textured finish. This LA amiibo is has a smooth gloss finish. Also the colours chosen are very bold...
I agree with the quoted statement 100%.
Zelda as an IP was becoming very stale. SS proved this. The broken motion controls was only the icing on the cake. The series needed as total shake up and re-invention. That's what BotW did and that's why it's such an amazing game. We need developers...
Yes I could. The name of someone would not matter to me at all. Mind you here in Australia we often call someone by a version of their name, not their actual birth name. Secondly I don't call my mother by her first name, I call her mum or mother so that same name association is really not...
I am not a US citizen thus not a stakeholder in the US presidential election. However in my opinion I feel if the DNC want to have any chance of winning they need to find themselves a sensible moderate candidate free from all the past baggage the party has. Secondly that candidate needs to...
Games age poorly because they no longer are fun when compared to more modern games.
A game can age technically but still be quite fun to play. Ocarina of Time is a good example of this. The game in many aspects has aged very poorly, but it's still a very fun game to play, thus people still...
@Woyogoyo Great idea for a topic. I've not played Hollow Knight but that track is pretty good. I like it and it works well as boss music.
Here are some of my favourite boss music pieces and why I think they work so well.
Donkey Kong Country - Gang Plank Galleon
It works so well as it's not...
Game reviews exist. They have their place and need to exist. There some from many different angles. Critic reviews, customer reviews, journalist (who haven't even plauyed the game) reviews . . . and more . . . you get the point. My issue is not about the reviews themselves, well not about the...
For those interested in the new artwork, Sony/Playstation is looking into making some high quality jpeg's available.
This is because they realise people outside the UK want this UK exclusive artwork too.
The actual images of the new artwork will be in the next post.
King of Fighters was quite popular back in the 90s. There was quite a few of them. I'm just surprised Nintendo did not use KoF and said Fatal Fury instead.
Overall for me I think the direct was totally amazing. But in a non hype kind of way. Something for everyone there. That's the big...

Here's the source article.
Do you have any opinions on it?
The joke, is people don't want basketball interrupting their 2K Casino Simulator.
Well said and I agree.
I thought Nintendo enforced the RRP / MSRP for each game. The retailers have the choice to pass on that price or lower it and take a loss. Useful if a prticular software title is going to be a loss leader.
I agre 100%. Developers have their reasons. At times reasons...
Imagine if a devlopment studio said "our game is digitally only because we release it physically worldwide"
I think the customers would be happier. Also the price of the game physically is not an issue as most of the time it's the same digitally. If the price is agreed...
An issue has arisen with certain games and game developers. The issue being they release their games digitally world wide but only release the same game physically in one region. So if you live outside that region and you want a physical copy you have to import or miss out. Sure region free...
From a story point you're correct. But from a gameplay standpoint, it's been a gradual continuation. Of cause ignoring the mistake that was Mario Sunshine.
Mario 64 is the base moveset / game. Mario Galaxy adds in gravity and 2D pull star sections and other things. Odyssey added in the hat...
I will add a few more.
Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne - After coming from Warcraft 2 and seeing how Starcraft improved on the formula, Warcraft 3 was such a let down for me. A return to non unique races where half the units from different races did the same thing. Adding in hero units that add...
Square, Enix Co or Square Enix - which do you think made better games and why?
Note well - Squaresoft is the US subsidary of Square, the international company.
Lets run through a selection of what I think is some of each compasny's best games pre and post merger. There are more games than I've...
Both the PS4 and Switch have exclusives I like. The deciding factor is how much the indie developers like the Switch and how Nintendo is treating them. Also the Switch is the ultimate future retro console.
In the future when standard HDMI cables have been replaced by better technology, we...
I have a rough framework which I sometimes stick to and sometimes do not.
$2 per hour of expected entertainment.
I think the game will be fun according to my own tastes
Recommendations from good friends - because they know my tastes and push my boundaries to like games I'd not have prevously...
Fire Emblem Warriors did.
I like Warriors/Musou games in general. Fire Emblem Warriors ended up being a terrible musou game. Not regretting getting it but it's not one of my best purchases ever.
I think Dynasty Warriors 9 also sold me on the name. DW9 is just as bad, but for totally different...
The Playstation 5 could look like this. A render / rumour. Most people think it's a dev kit. I just removed the obnoxious website branding so we can get a better look at it.

I assume you mean old games that are new to you as opposed to new games made for the old consoles like:
Planet X2 for the Commodore 64
Lizard for the NES
Paprium for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis
Unholy Knight: Darkness Hunter for the SNES
Princess Lydie for the Intellivision
Here's the list of all the games from the recent indie world presentation.
Risk of Rain 2
Superhot - Out Now
Dungeon Defenders: Awakened
The Touryst - November 2019
Skellboy - 3rd December 2019
Hotline Miami Collection...
For most games I prefer Nintendo consoles ie Switch. I just like it's pro controller more.
The only thing changing that is games that run better and are much cheaper on PS4. This is really rare as I bought a PS4 Slim for exclusives. Though I do own DW8XL and New DOOM on PS4. The former I got...
That's Bethesda being not good at doing it. I don't know why they can't get it right, when hundreds of games in the 90's got it right from all different developers. One of my favourite games of all time, Master of Orion 2 (a 1996 game) has both options exactly as I described and it worked just...
The "why not both" meme is the best answer.
Just have a single save slot set for the auto save and all the rest of the save slots for manual saving. That's the best way so you have your manual saves but have the auto backup if you need it. Lots of 90's games did it this way and it worked...
