I feel like such a douche for promoting this... but... hi... hello... a game I'm doing the music and sound design for is on Kickstarter and things are going pretty well. Elijah Wood and Patton Oswalt

Picked up my oculus quest headset and purchased and played through quite a few titles. I don’t consistently game but when I do I really get into it. The quest is pretty low-powered compared to PSVR bu

Still playing through Control... fantastic game.

I'm really shocked at the Wii U's pricing - 350USD for a console with only 32GB of memory? You can get a PS3 or 360 with a HDD that is around 160GB for much less than that. Nintendo is really taking the piss, thinking their die-hard fans are going to pony up just to play the next derivative Mario game.

The baked in Nintendo TV app looks loads better than similar stuff on Xbox. Plus you can watch video and chat on the game pad screen. I see a Hulu subscription in my future.

yeah im very disappointed... I think I'll just save up for a Vita or PS3 now.

 

You may just want to wait a bit longer and see if Sony/Microsoft announce their next consoles around the launch window of the Wii U :trollface:

Thing is, Nintendo is really good about proposing things, but usually fall short in execution - time will tell though.

I bought the Wii when when it was fairly cheap. But ended up selling it again after two months.

 

Not making that mistake again.

Plus, they're pretty good at announcing things that end up never getting released (I think they've done that for their last 3 consoles)

this time around I'm thinking it will be that elusive "third party support"

I plan on not buying any Next Gen Console. I'll just be gaming on my PC. I only got my PS3 for Guitar Hero and COD, both of which were to play with my console friends. But now they too have PC's so screw consoles this time.

If a Valve box ever comes out, I'll buy the shit out of that. Nintendo should stop trying to innovate hardware and go back to making playing cards for the yakuza.

I've pretty much stopped using consoles altogether, even my Nintendo DS. Mainly been playing my games on an HP h8-1020 with an i7 processor and 8 GB RAM for the past year.

 

I have nothing against console users though. Play on the machine that works best for you.

It's sad watching them after loving so much of their stuff from the last 30 years. Starting to look like they're going to go down in flames.

I doubt they'll survive the lawsuits by all the kids getting carpal tunnel syndrome from holding those slab controllers for hours on end

Don't get me wrong; Bayonetta was a great game, but certainly not a 'killer app' on any system, and certainly not a sequel (and make no doubt this is just an exclusivity window; it will come to PS3/360 afterwards).

 

I'll probably end up buying a Wii U for reasons I don't know yet. Then I'll buy 2-3 games and sell it just like with the Wii.

 

Strangely enough I had this feeling watching NSMBU - then I checked out the rest of the lineup and with no Zelda or anything else remotely interesting, I'm backing away from the idea.

Yeah, I really wish they'd show more of whatever Zelda title they're working on - or something totally new and innovative that doesn't look like an HD Wii mini-game collection.

Yeah, I really don't see 3rd parties supporting this - and there is already shovelware in the launch window - not a good sign.

 

why have i only just played little big planet 2. its awesome. :D im glad i joined PS+ now.

Amazing game, isn't it - supposedly LBP Vita is even better with the touch interface. Truly one of Sony's flagship games, and one of the most innovative games to come out in a long time. See, Nintendo could do this with Super Mario - imagine building your own Mario levels and sharing it with friends online!

 

I will say this - at first I scoffed at the Wii U's 8 or 32GB internal memory, but I just read you can add a USB HDD and expand the storage that way - Nintendo's stance is to offer gamers the storage options they want, at the price they want - so really it does make sense and in retrospect is a smart move.

 

We might all be wrong and this is the renaissance Nintendo has been waiting for to go back to the glory days of the NES/Famicom and their dominance in the console market.

 

Or, it could be their biggest mistake, and they end up becoming a software-only company, and finally make their flagship games for other platforms.

I really should go back and play LBP2. I bought it when it first came out and have been neglecting it for some reason. I think I'll fire it up tonight.

Tried Guild Wars 2 up untill level 15 or so. It has a nice flow with the world events and quests you don't have to request and track. But despite all the things it's trying, it's still too close to the WoW/same old MMORPG formula to grab my attention. Action is very standard, quests are the usual kill, click & collect. Exploration is OK, but never comes close to the immersive exploration I had with WoW in the early days. I have very fond memories of being totally immersed in the WoW universe. But this just doesn't do it for me because of the lacking art direction or immerson breakers like instant fast travel. The lore of some of the races seems pretty nice but the quest story lines are utterly boring to the point I'm avoiding them.

 

Meh, maybe it's for the best. MMORPG's are a silly time sink after all.

 

Others:

FIFA 13 demo - getting more iterative every year

PES 2013 demo - still far off, let's hope they can pressure EA again in a few years so they'll be less complacent

To the Moon - very cheesy with gameplay that's so silly to the point it shouldn't be interactive at all. But I somewhat like the story and the music and am looking forward to see how it ends, which is more than most full priced titles can do.

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
