I'm an average fellow who likes to play video games. I work for a news website as a video producer, and I'm hoping to use that experience to score a job at a video game-centric news site doing the same thing.
My consoles of choice are PS3 and Vita, but I'm working my way into PC gaming. I recently built a high end 'rig,' and I'm working on building up a decent Steam library. I'm always looking for people to play online with, so if you've got a PS3 or Vita, please add me on PSN!
That seems a bit far-fetched, but it’s possible.
Also, I haven’t seen screenshots for this game anywhere. The article mentions Famitsu having some, but I only saw screens from the trailer on the Famitsu site.
I definitely think Panopticon was a better title. Oh well, that’s a small complaint. I do hope this has a speedy localization for western regions.
EDIT: Weird, it doesn’t loop.
PROTIP: Mark your territory with urine as soon as you walk into the interview. It will show them that you’re serious about committing to the business.
Just because the name is an accurate description of what it is doesn’t make it a good name. I’m not saying PlayStation is much better, but I do think the use of “station” is a more interesting choice than “box.”
Nah, I was ripping on just the Xbox name. I still think it’s a dumb one. I mean, I get the meaning, if the DirectX thing is true, but it’s still a dumb sounding name. Literally has Box in the title.
Hi guys! I forgot the Xbox thing was yesterday! How about that new name, eh? Xbox One? What the heck is an Xbox? A box that is made cool by the X factor? And how about that airplane food?
Seriously though, I totally missed everything. It appears Microsoft basically landed on par with Sony as far as the reveals go. Feature-wise, the PS4 and Xbox One feel like they’ll match up similarly to how PS3 and 360 did. That is, outside of all the extra entertainment stuff, which isn’t a big deal to me.
The new Kinect tech is cool. It’s kind of amazing what that thing can do.
I was almost very sad.
Remember when Nintendo said the same thing about the Wii?
XBox itself might be the worst name of a console ever. It literally is called a box.
You can make money off parody, so why not homage?
The grappling looked more like a way to bring the monster down at the end of a battle. Since everyone used theirs at the same time in the video after attacking the monster, it seemed like a finishing move. I imagine there’s some window of time where each player has to grapple to the monster (possibly a certain part of the monster) after its health is depleted or it will regain some health and continue fighting.
Hiyo, Mr. Boyer! I’m very excited to see what will be showcased at Horizon. I know what you, Cory and others have a passion for games of all kinds, even the large, big budget games. However, those that don’t know you all will see this as they do the entire indie scene – an in-crowd comprised of a bunch of pretentious, self-righteous people who poo-poo games with guns (as evidenced by past events following past IGFs). Unfortunately, you have to cater to those who know the least about who you are and what you do.
I think your best bet with making Horizon something everyone can respect will be to choose your words carefully. If that means coming out and saying “We aren’t putting down big games; we’re raising up the others,” then so be it. There will be issues, of course, but I have confidence that you guys can get past them. Best of luck! <3
Edit: Big compliments to Cory on the branding, btw. Fantastic work, as always.
My buddy at work showed me this a bit ago using his iPad and iPhone. It’s a neat little thing that is actually a cool way to get couch competition with anyone that has a smart-device.
Notice the EA Skate-style controls using the left stick as well. I’d like a little more snap in the SFX when popping an ollie, but the overall sound design seems solid. I could play this for a long time, I’m sure.
I don’t think they’re doing this for the money. Nintendo has a history of stepping in the way of fan-made projects, so this isn’t surprising. In reality, the money is probably just a bonus. And the “free advertising” argument is never a strong one. Just because it’s free doesn’t mean they have to want it.
I don’t know how I feel about this in the grand scheme of things. It’s very discouraging to LPers, which is a form of content creation that blurs the lines between original and copyrighted material – same with livestreaming and tournament recordings with commentary.
This is probably the case.
No excitement here. I’m not a huge shooter fan, so I don’t really have any stock in DICE, Battlefield, Battlefront, etc. So, yeah, it’s just a fart.
And yes, hello!
Goodness, it’s about time. I’m glad they’ve finally moved everything to 3D models, but it took a generation longer than it should have. At this point, I’m not even sure if I care.
I like the character design. It has… character.
FOREWARNING: Don’t get too excited. I know you want to, but don’t. It always turns out better if you have no expectations.
I was interested at first. We’ve passed the days when 3D platformers were common, and I’ve always enjoyed them. I’m also all for the revival of an old franchise, even if most people would laugh at it. Unfortunately, it sounds like this is secondary to an animated series, which is already bad news. The use of a single generic “chomp” noise throughout the video gives me the impression of even poorer quality.
Mechanically, it looks like it could be decent. It seems they’re giving Pac-Man a sort of Kirby-like ability to absorb enemy abilities, which could make for an interesting game. Again, it unfortunately seems that it won’t be.
D was by far my favorite. It could have made for a very cool looking game.
“Not sure why people are saying shooters since you mentioned you didn’t like them but whatever.”
I was wondering the same.
Guacamelee, Gravity Rush, Motorstorm RC, Retro City Rampage, Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward, Sound Shapes, Persona 4 Golden, and Soul Sacrifice would be my recs.
Unfortunately, taxing the weapons industry wouldn’t be as easy or lucrative as the entertainment industry. If the government were to try and pose additional taxes on arms manufacturers, it would be met with opposition from lobbyists. On the other hand, taxing the entertainment industry would likely create a larger stream of income and have a smaller pushback. If we’re talking video games specifically, it would only end up with a bunch of crying internet babies cursing our government. Really, all we can do is hope there is someone smart enough to organize real opposition to this.
