Wait, so they couldn’t just port TellTale’s series? They have to make a completely different game?
I mean, it would be one thing if TellTale had made a shooter or something, but it’s a point-and-click adventure for christ’s sake, and critically acclaimed one at that.
That used to be the case for me, but now that I have a computer with an SSD, it reboots quickly enough for the barrier to be mostly gone.
Of course, I don’t know what type of mac you have, but if you have one of the more recent ones, you may want to try it again.
But you’re literally talking about five levels in a game with well over a hundred of them. It’s just not nearly as big as much content as you’re making it out to be.
Sorry for all the self-replies, but reading over these again, I sound to myself like very stereotypical-angry-gamer, and that’s not who I want to be.
I’m not angry per say, I’m just trying to make sense of things, and doing a bad job because I’m tired and thus probably shouldn’t have commented in the first place.
The game publishers can’t actually do anything about it (without draconian XBO-like policies that would stop me from lending my games to a friend), but I think Gamestop is very much at fault here for pushing used games as such a key part of their business. Essentially any game disc that is bought 4+ months after release is going to be a used copy. That means games have exactly four months to make their ENTIRE development cost back, plus any profit they hope to gain.
I honestly don’t care if development costs have risen.
I love large-budget, spectical-filled video games, don’t get me wrong. But $100 for a video game is a lot to ask for. If that’s the only way AAA video games are sustainable, then the devs really ought to focus on making games that don’t cost as much. Or they could try expanding their audience; most video games are still marketed almost exclusively to men.
Mario plays just fine with the classic controller, except for a tiny number optional levels that use the touchscreen. These types of levels don’t exist in Bayonetta.
Bootcamp is amazing.
Remember when Amazon deleted digital files of ‘1984’ from users’ Kindles? Aside from the delicious irony of a mega-corp remotely deleting a novel about a dystopian totalitarian regime, many people focused on the fact that Amazon had the technical capability to do so.
But actually, that Amazon had this ability was public knowledge for years, it’s just that the general public wasn’t aware of it.
it’s not like our cell phones aren’t already wonderful devices with cameras, microphones and tracking devices that we carry with us at all times.
Come now, Android has been rooted from top to bottom, and last I checked there wasn’t any evidence of a process constantly monitoring the camera and microphone and uploading it to an outside server. The inner workings of iOS are less well understood, but I doubt such a process would go unnoticed there either.
I’d be more willing to believe that Xbox One and PS4 could be spying on us, since those devices are black boxes that no one outside of Sony and Microsoft truly understands. However, if the NSA has tapped into these consoles, its an pretty dangerous dangerous move, because once the consoles have been hacked five years from now, we’ll all probably find out about it.
Prism et all worked for so long because they were tapping data that we were already sending to outside servers. It’s much harder to access data that is supposed to never leave our devices.
I think that Prism gives us a reason to skeptical of our privacy. However, we should be skeptical within the confines of what is technologically feasible.
I would have loved this when I was little :(
While this explanation makes sense, it’s different than what a lot of Polygon staff said in the comments of the GoTY post.
Here’s a better quality version. Higher bitrate, and (more importantly!) 60fps during all of the gameplay. The smoothness actually makes it look a lot more fun imo.
She’s still pretty darn sexualized. It seems like they toned down a tiiiiny bit, but saying that the “entire concept of the character” has changed is going waaaaaay too far.
Because the PS4 and Xbox One just had so many great launch titles!
I wonder if they’ll consider putting the message in reviews as well. Would help people understand the discrepancy between TLoU’s review score, and it’s GoTY spot.
