Hah! I told you all last week about why Star Citizen wasn’t mentioned and none of you believed me LOL

PS4 is a bit toss IMO

Those infamous screenshots of Nier Automata were fake and doctored.

I have to wonder, what was that Nintendo related thing Jim was going to talk about before Gavin came back on? I’m guessing it was about that Metroid Prime Federation Force game I sent him.

You really shouldn’t be proud of the fact that you wasted money sending an unasked for and unwanted gift which was considered hate mail.

once on youtube someone said something about polishing a turd talking about that pirate game from a while back and said it couldn’t be done then i linked a video of mythbusters polishing a turd. Then jim said something along the lines that games awards for that particular game about its proof you can polish turd but a turd is still a turd. I like to think he pulled that from me.

I was stoked for Scalebound when it was announced and they showed the reveal trailer, but after that gameplay footage was shown last year my interest evaporated. I was hoping for something like Devil May Cry but with a dragon worked in somehow, what I saw just looked clunky and unfun.

Man, I hate those dreams where you’re busting for a piss but everything in your dream changes to justify why you cannot piss…I’ve had dreams where aiming at the bowl becomes impossible at it mutates and moves around and my emotional dream mind is screaming “whhhhhhyyyyy are you doing this to me???? I need to PEEEEEEE!!” Then I wake up and realise it was a dream as I run to the toilet weeping in tears of joy and piss.
Oh right, videogames. Erm. gravity Rush 2!!!

I (as a young child) had a dream where I was desperate for a piss, realised it was a dream so thought “Oh so it’s fine to piss because it’s just a dream!” then woken up soaked in piss.

So how about that Overwatch huh?

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who had the “locked in eternal constipation” dreams where you have to pee so bad but your psyche conspires against you, and none of your imaginary piss attempts relieve the pressure.

It’s happened with hunger too, like being hungry in a dream but no matter what food you try to find, either it becomes out of reach of turns into something else in the hands or what little is devoured does nothing to appease the starvation. Although there is less risk of pissing oneself in those. Unless a horrific combination of those needs manifest into a scene where you trying to eat a concrete hotdog as you attempt to piss into a spinning singing toilet. Oh dear. No! Videogames, damnit!

To be fair, a kid’s body has yet to learn the many subtle subconscious tricks to keep a lid on certain things while sleeping, and no doubt myself as a child experienced similar things, if I could just remember any of that part of life. It’s definitely a bit of a worry that maybe the body won’t be as good at this safety net in the future of dream piss seeking.
Err…Anyway, that Neir Automata demo was alright!

Scalebound’s cancellation is a damn shame, was really looking forward to it. Guess my xbone will just have to serve as an emulation machine for a while longer.

Though I will say, I’ve had a fun time lately replaying Fallout New Vegas on my xbone. It’s been nice having a big, bulky save file and not dealing with all the crashes and performance issues that plagued last gen. Now that Oblivion is also backward compatible too, I’ll probably start up a playthrough of that sometime this year.

diamond
Guest

I was always a bit skeptical about Scalebound, so i’m honestly not very broken up by it’s cancellation compared to say other cancelled games like This is Vegas, Eight Days, Getaway 3, 2 Days to Vegas, Six Days in Fallujah, Fear and Respect, Command and Conquer: Tiberium, Starcraft Ghost, etc.

I’ve still got plenty of Xbox One exclusives to currently enjoy and ones to look forward to in the future.

Mark Davenport
Guest
I suspect there’s more to the cancellation of Scalebound than on the surface. I mean reportedly the game was in development for over four years. Four years of Microsoft funding the game, marketing it, putting on stage, pinning it. Why would they cancel that out of the blue apparently months away from release? There’s no way it would be canceled unless there was a very good reason. I mean Quantum Break was in development for like 5 years, Microsoft has shown they’re willing to use deep pockets and allow long development cycles on games. To cancel a game shown a… Read more »

Other sources suggest it was in some form of development closer to eight years and not four.

Mark Davenport
Guest

I also heard a Youtuber say seven years.

But I suspect the current version of the game is more closer of four years as I believe there was previous version which was quite a bit different.

Like with Ryse: Son of Rome. There was two versions of the game, one for the 360 kinect, another for Xbox One launch.

I don’t know the exact term for it, but it was in “pre-development” for several years. You know, where they work out the concept, gather assets, set up the team, that sort of thing. It started out as a game about a girl and a dinosaur, but eventually morphed in a boy and his dragon. And I agree, there’s got to be a few components to this story we’re not hearing yet. I know it’s hip to immediately blame MS, and I’m sure they’re not the easiest publishers to work for. Four years, 3 videos (2 of which where gameplay,… Read more »

Fable Legends looked like crap, so i’m honestly happy that was cancelled.

Xbox One has actually been outselling the PS4 for the past six months, so they’re not doing too badly right now.

The XBox Scorpio has had it’s games “launch” titles set reduced. That’s a sting in it’s tail.

galactix100
Guest
galactix100

When you consider that there isn’t even a Halo or Gears of War coming out this year, convincing people to pick up a Scorpio is going to be even harder. Unless Microsoft have stuff up their sleeves for E3 then it may end up like the ps4 pro where the main selling point seems to be ‘well it has 4K, not much else but we’re going to pretend that 4K is a big’

Arella Jardin
Guest
Arella Jardin

God, I hope they don’t do what Sony did and act like 4K is a good enough excuse to buy a new system. I’d rather they focus on framerates, not resolution.

My hope is that the reason their exclusive library is so paltry this year, is because they’re holding back titles for the Scorpio.

galactix100
Guest
galactix100

I get the feeling they will focus on the 4K thing because that’s the place the industry’s at right now. The main focus of the hype train isn’t unique ideas or a new twist on an old concept or even just giving us the best gameplay experience possible it’s ‘shut up and look at our visuals’.

diamond
Guest
diamond

Actually there IS a Halo game coming out this year-Halo Wars 2, sure it’s a spin-off title, but it’s still Halo nonetheless, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to sell.

galactix100
Guest
galactix100

a) It’s an RTS, which isn’t as popular as fps on consoles so it won’t sell as well as a regular Halo. b) Halo Wars 2 comes out in February or March where as Scorpio is slated for the end of the year assuming there’s no delays, you can’t really call it a Scorpio launch title.

diamond
Guest
diamond

Scorpion isn’t going to have any real “launch titles” though since it’s not a brand new console, it’s just a more powerful Xbox One, and Microsoft has already stated there it won’t have exclusive games that the other versions of the XB1 cannot play(no way they would be dumb enough to do that after their DRM strategy blew up in their faces)

galactix100
Guest
galactix100

There’s no point to debating this stuff really since nobody knows anything about Scorpio other than that it’ll be more powerful than the xbone. The point I’m making though is that xbone exclusives this year will effectively act as launch titles for the Scorpio so less of them will hinder it.

PS4 has the strongest library on consoles, whoever denies that is delusional. Sony merely gave players the bare minimum and was still enough to win em over. And the exclusives arejust plain amazing to look at in most cases, and that justifies the buing of the consoles for many people.

it does makes sense. I play games since long time i can tell shit from good stuff and i’ve playied lot of ps4 games. Not so many on xbone since, the exclusives are undeniably less. I can say Recore sucked and Forza horizon3, on PC is so damn good, but thats it.

That’s something I’ve considered, MS should just go ahead and turn the Xbox platform into a uniform PC. Do what Valve failed to do with the Steam Machines (or whatever they’re called), bring pc gaming to the console market. Offer a new gaming rig every 3-4 years, with either access to Steam, or at least make the Windows store not suck, and continue to offer services through Gold membership. It’s pretty much where the market is going, anyway, so they might as well pull the trigger. At the very least, MS really needs a slam dunk with the Scorpio. I’ve… Read more »

“I’ve never had it explained to me how Sony does so much better at attracting exclusives. Japanese companies. I understand, there’s almost a nationalist bias towards Sony and supporting PS. But Sony has also managed to snag great exclusives from a lot of Western developers, too.” yep thats kind of a mistery to me too especially when most devs describes MS dev tools as a dream to work with.

Totally with you on the xbox becoming a sort of steam machine…fanboys will be like “we’re master race up in this bi**h!”

Arella Jardin
Guest
Arella Jardin

That’s why I’d like someone to explain it to me. From a dev’s perspective, X1 has its advantages. The dev kits are better, the MS servers are better. Plus, when you think about when some of these partnerships started during last gen, the PS3 architecture was a damn mess.

I don’t think that’s a very good idea at all.

I think Microsoft was actually better at attracting exclusives at the beginning of this generation, Sony only really had Killzone Shadowfall and nothing else(Knack was average, and Knack 2 does not look much better)

GloatingSwine

Yeah, if Microsoft want the Xbox to integrate with the PC as a “Steambox but actually real” they need the Windows store not to suck.

But I don’t see that happening.

There’s just too much suck there.

Just to throw it out there, I literally bought a PS4 just for Bloodborne. It has since justified its continued presence in my home both by the fact that I will literally never get enough of my sweet, sweet gothic/cosmic horror baby and also with a fair number of other titles and a robust indy library.

Also I will be able to play Person V on it, and I would frankly rather have humanity stop existing (myself included) than miss that.
