    Watch Dogs has some weird resolutions
    On new-gen systems the game will run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One, at 30 frames-per-second on both consoles.

    While some new-gen games now offer native 1080p, Morin says it’s much more important to deliver an amazing next-gen experience than it is to push a few more pixels onto a screen. “Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games,” he says. “But you make choices about the experience you want to deliver. In our case, dynamism is everything. Exploration and expression are everything. You want to have a steady framerate, but you want to have dynamism at the core of the experience. The same goes with resolution. People tend to look at corridor shooters, for example, where there’s a corridor and all the effects are on and it’s unbelievable, and they forget that if you apply those same global effects to an open city with people around and potential car crashes and guys in multiplayer showing up without warning, the same effect is applied to a lot of dynamic elements that are happening in every frame. So it becomes magnified in cost.”

    So, having completed Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), I realized that I had to destroy my copy of it, lest it one day harm someone else the way it harmed me.
    I started with the case.

    14176864102_33deee6db5_c.jpg

    This container had failed to restrain the darkness it stored inside of it. It had to face justice. I rended the plastic apart with my bare hands.

    14199636033_844b0ea815_c.jpg

    Next, I needed to take care of the instruction manual

    13992882437_71eedcf35a_c.jpg

    This vile tome attempted to teach the innocent how to interact with the Sonic the Hedgehog software. Such wicked knowledge must be contained forever. The only solution was fire.

    14176869092_6e3ea1fd15_c.jpg

    The manual was surprisingly difficult to get burning. Some people might say that it's because waxy paper has a high burning temperature. I say it's because it was forged in the fires of Hell itself, and what came from flame cannot easily be destroyed by flame.

    14156373746_6ab7f9815b_c.jpg

    14179542505_bd51722f1b_c.jpg

    It did, however, ultimately succumb.

    13992899880_72672364f1_c.jpg

    With that task complete, there was only one more job left to do. I had to destroy the disc itself.

    14179564394_03eb599e10_c.jpg

    This... thing, had caused so much pain and devestation. Destroying this one copy wouldn't fix anything. Millions more exist, and even if they were destroyed, the digital code will be preserved by dark worshippers of the wicked Satan until sin is finally cleansed from the earth in the fires of Armaggedon.

    Still, for the health of my own soul, I had to do something.

    14156381996_33ed2f2793_c.jpg

    I decided that Sonic deserved to have a last meal before his execution. Also someone should really eat those bananas, they're starting to go ripe.

    13992884979_76369c2a22_c.jpg

    Eat it. Eat it you filthy god damn rodent.

    His favorite.

    13992917328_60c74142d1_c.jpg

    Can't forget the cheese.

    It's time, Sonic.

    13992905969_b90ed96dd3_c.jpg

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; your rod, and your staff, they comfort me.

    13992891089_8f487fbf1d_c.jpg

    In accordance with the laws of the Giant Bomb thread, the convicted will be executed in the method established by the great @Grey Ghost

    My camera fails to go off as the can drops off the bridge, I run down to the riverside to see if I can find it floating there.

    14199698163_072ffe2558_c.jpg

    The can has dropped like a rock, deep below the murky depths. Apparently I underestimated the density of pure evil.

    ...Or Hormel Chilli. Whichever.

    Regardless, our work is now done. The time has come to celebrate with delicious snacks.

    13992949567_245aebc871.jpg

    The pain hasn't completely left me yet. Likely, it never will.

    13992908599_16395b5805.jpg

    13992950877_2ba4f47763.jpg

    13992909979_9f1fc47aaf.jpg

    But at least I can begin to move on with my life.

    13992951407_a51e03a509.jpg

    Dr. Snuggles, ever the pro, shows no signs of emotional trauma. This job will undoubtedly earn him a commendation.

    I know, this is another case of "Old news that happened while Inquisitor was asleep because of timezones"

    But man, Kinectless Xbox One? I feel kind of bad for everyone that already bought the system. And kind of annoyed with Microsoft for having lied about the kinect for so long.

    On the other hand, XboxOne with no kinect means I may buy one someday.
