My hope is that something like the PS Eye can remedy this. I have exactly the same problem, but assuming developers decide to work with the PS Eye, it looks like the integrated light in the controller allows for mouse-like movement. It won’t be a perfect solution, but it would at least be enough for me to find those games enjoyable I imagine.
Especially since the likes of Apple TV, Roku, Boxee, etc. cost just around $70 – $100 while consoles cost at least three to four times that amount.
Comparing similar things is a logical fallacy. Just because two mountains are made out of rock, it does not make them the same. The Last of Us may be a good game, I have yet to play it so I don’t know, but comparing it to games with inherently different mechanics does not work. I view all of these reviews as a microcosm of themselves. A game is good for what it alone brings to the table, and not what games similar to it bring to the table. The games you list were not better than other games, they were good in their own right.
My point was more that even if Sony did include it, most third-party developers are pretty lazy when it comes to making motion control games. Looking to the Wii/Wii U the third party developers did not really do anything but output a bunch of mini-games, and the same can be said for the Kinect games. It would have been nice if Sony decided to include the Eye at launch, but I can understand why they would be hesitant to do so. It’s extra cost with very little payoff.
With Firefox it really depends on how many add-ons you have installed. I use it as my workhorse browser so it is slower, but I can actually accomplish tasks much quicker. Base Firefox is actually pretty decent.
It is gimmicky, as is all motion control based gaming.
If FPS games worked like that on the console I might actually pick an FPS game up for something other than my computer. I just end up getting frustrated at how inaccurate the analog stick is on my controllers to actually focus on playing the game.
If Kinect and Wii motion control games, and I mean both first and third party, are any indication of game quality I do not want any part of it. Sitting in front of my TV playing mini-games all day is not my idea of fun.
I’m thinking closer to the same price as what MS is offering the XBone for.
I have to admit, that looked a bit cool. I want more AR stuff on consoles to complement motion control. Motion control games themselves don’t really do it for me, but adding AR functionality might do the trick if done correctly.
I’m not really surprised it’s small seeing as the only reason the PS3 (original) was so fat was because it also had a PS2 inside of it. This is basically a slightly upgraded PS3 (okay, majorly upgraded) with more memory and a modern GPU.
The Playstation Italic Edition.
Because if there are two things that go together well, it is Norse mythology and… Blaxploitation films?
I honestly can’t see what kind of plan they have for that game. Everything about it looks like a bad idea.
You should try a website called The Lost Worlds. It has everything you need to get those old LoK games working.
So F2P MMO. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!
This might be a game I need to pick up.
That could be. I do remember some brief blurb about “dlc” with the pre-order, but I did not pay that much attention.
This is weird to me. All of this was in the game when I first bought it at release.
I have to admit, I stopped at the words “waist high cover” because I instantly lost any interest I once had for this game. Developers, I’m pleading with you here, just stop with the waist high cover system, especially if it’s “sticky” cover.
You forgot one.
Well, Bob Page is definitely a character in the game.
Also, Steam Greenlight. I want more information about this game though. If it is a FF clone I don’t want it, if it just uses the FF formula I might pick it up.
When they do get patches it takes an hour to install them.
It is the American way to jump to conclusions before the full story is released. This is why they don’t allow you to talk about a trial if you are on jury duty, not only can it bias a person towards a case, but it can also lead you to make a decision before all the facts have been presented in a trial. We may see it as the people involved are guilty, but there has to be a lack of reasonable doubt to convict someone in a a crime.
I’m not saying we should act like a jury, more that anytime something like this happens we should wait for the full story instead of jumping on the media bandwagon and casting accusations.
The only real reason I thought X6 was bad was because it seemed entirely arbitrary, and even before I knew that X5 was supposed to be the canonical ending. Zero was gone, but suddenly and inexplicably he is back for a short while before he disappears again. The story made no sense and was kind of an obvious attempt to get fans of the series to invest money in another game.
X7 and X8 seem to take place in a kind of “extended universe” where the events of X5 and beyond never happened (but the events with Repliforce did).
X7 was pretty crap, but I feel they made up for it with X8 (which was brilliantly difficult). I just wish they would decide to make an X9. Anything after X5 has been a bonus now that I think about it, since Keiji Inafune wanted the ending to be canon but Capcom made X6 (which was also kind of bad) anywas.
My favorite version of the game is on the PS2 since you get the anthology of MMX games, minus X7 (blaarrgh!) and X8, and you don’t even have to pay that much for it.
My favorite thing about the Sony store? The SNK section. There are some nice gems in there if you know where to look.
Yes. Thank you.
