I think there are only two times she can die, the sacrifice mission in ME1, and the confrontation with Cerberus and Udina on the Citadel in ME3, and she isn’t very likely to die at that point, if you take any Paragon or Renegade options. At least I’ve never lost her in multiple play throughs.
“I’m happy with what I saw from both Sony and MS as far as the devices and capabilities are concerned. Perhaps I’m just terribly optimistic and in the minority among a sea of overly negative but there is definitely a bigger picture here that I believe Sony/MS are trying to paint that a lot of people aren’t initially seeing.”
You match my opinion exactly.
I think it depends on where the other consoles are priced. If PS4/XB1 can get down to $400 (unsubsidized), then I think Nintendo might have to make a move away from their current price points. When the difference between PS4/XB1 and the Wii U Pro SKU is only $50, the Wii U seems like a pretty poor value proposition. Either way, I don’t expect a price drop long before the new consoles, if there is one, and they definitely won’t announce it ahead of time.
Whoa, a college class where you write a game engine? I wish my university had offered that.
So what does this do? Does Scheme have to be inline? If not, using new lines and indentation could really help with that.
If it is at all like installing games from the disc on the Xbox 360, it doesn’t take but a few minutes. I usually start it installing and then I go get a drink/check my phone/use the restroom, and by the time I’ve done that, it is ready to go. Now the Xbox One does use Blu-ray discs, so the amount of data being written to the HDD is likely going to be higher, but it will also be a faster console in general which might make up for that. They haven’t released the tech specs on the Blu-ray drive they are using or the HDD, so I can’t speak to their R/W speeds overall though.
And as Shaun said, they are doing installs as you play, so you can start it immediately if you want.
Yeah, I think all of these might be ‘hidden’ behind the Xbox Live Gold subscription.
It just looks like Kingdom Hearts for grown ups
This is….. a bad thing?
Your Polygon name…. heh.
The new Kinect piques my interest as well. I like that it is packaged with the system, so devs will know everyone has one and it is required for games to work, and they don’t splinter their install base between those with Kinect and those without, like what happened with the Xbox 360 and the HDD at the beginning of this console generation. It is also a much sleeker device than the previous Kinect, and is hopefully that much more powerful.
The use of it as a casual interface via voice and simple gestures could be a great one, if they can pull it off. I can just imagine someone in a crowded room shouting at the Xbox: “Xbox, live tv!” to switch to the sports game or something but it can’t understand them over the ambient noise. Or it misinterprets commands. I’ll have to wait and see on that.
From what I’ve gathered, you’ll still need your cable box, and it just does" HDMI pass through":http://www.polygon.com/2013/5/21/4349160/xbox-one-hdmi-pass-direct-connect to give you Xbox One controls/overlay/features.
The original Xbox.
They did say some of the hardware details, but it was very fast and mostly text that wasn’t said aloud.
Yeah, they were showing Infinity Ward’s previous game.
Wow everyone is so knee-jerk negative in here.
I kinda like it…..
The new Kinect looks nice.
I worry that 343 won’t have had enough time for any sort of Halo reveal this early. Even Bungie couldn’t have Halo 3 ready for the Xbox 360 reveal/launch. Halo 2 came out a year before the 360, then the E3 after the 360 was released Halo 3 was announced (2006), and it didn’t come out until 2 years after the 360 launch in Nov. 2007. At most I think we get a logo with some Master Chief or Cortana VO.
Yes, this. FF Versus XIII was always the most interesting of the Fabula Nova Crystallis project for me, and I was saddened when it just kept getting pushed back and they kept remaining silent. It was announced in May 2006 for crying out loud! 7 years ago! I can’t think of another game that is currently in development that was announced that long ago.
See I didn’t even know it was a musical. Or anything about a bird who can’t really “fly”? I assumed this was basically Fern Gully meets Honey I Shrunk the Kids.
I always forget this is a thing, and how useful it is.
