    Also Brad is leaving.

    I’ll miss him, but it sounds like that gig in Columbia was just too fine to pass on. Can’t really blame him.

    I think this is a running joke, not that he's actually leaving.

    It's kinda hard to tell though.

    Is the east coast actually fighting each other and fraying each other nerves or is it an act?

    I don’t doubt that they get on each other’s nerves at times, but I think they get along just fine, and they’re all good at playing off each other really well.

    Austin was asking about the game on Twitter today, joking about how the name of the game is bland but also kinda rad.

    It's the game Abby talked about last week on the Beastcast as a roguelike that she isn't quite sure she enjoys because it's a git gud type of game, apparently?

    The way the Sony press conference responded to that thing was kind of amazing, it really impressively showed the power of being last and the speed they could turn that around. When I think of the showmanship angle of E3, I think of Sony getting wild applause for saying "yeah games are still on discs you can give to your friends".

    the original xbox one reveal was the correct future, the way things are heading anyways, and a world i want to live in. The fact that if I do end up with a disc based copy of the game I have to have the fucking disc in there SUCKS.

    It was, but they needed to use this generation to ease people into it. Instead they dropped a brick on their head with a note that read GET WITH THE TIMES LAME-O. In retrospect, not a good marketing move.

    While xbox had a big get with the times vibe, it also came off as very big brother where you needed a connection periodically? to play your games. I purchase mostly all digital ps4 games, but if I never connect or update a game it only effects multiplayer.

    The end result was going to be the same no matter what, but the big difference was users do not trust corporations, and PS at least seemed passively aware of this

    All premium vids and what not work no problem BUT I've no idea if it supports livestreams as I'm never at home during those.

    I can't imagine there will ever be a PS4 player as people can't just write apps for the PS4 like you can with Windows 10/Xbox One

    This is my prefered way of watching livestreams when I'm home.

    The App had a shitty glitch where if you left a video paused for more than a couple of minutes, it would only play what was cached and then stop, and you'd have to go back and pick the video again. They appear to have fixed it?

    Man I hit up redbox on the regular for games. Definitely for stuff like God of War, which I adored, but am good with after playing once. And for stuff like Far Cry 5 when I know damn well I'll get bored three or four hours in but want to check it out regardless.

    Eh, the original concept, needing to be online once every 24 hours, followed by Mattrick's "We have a box for people who can't be online that frequently and it's called the Xbox 360" was complete garbage. Especially given the state of internet infrastructure in America. Even where the infrastructure is adequate, people still have to deal with garbage ass telcoms that can leave you without internet for days.

    Also, just because the industry seems to be heading in a certain direction doesn't necessarily mean its a good thing, as the modern era of bloating budgets and monetization can attest.

    Wasn’t their original position on if you could share games terrible? I’m not sure how it works now but at launch you could not share digital games, or if you could it was very convoluted about authorizations and maybe locking people out of sharing physical discs.

  • Undead ScottsmanUndead Scottsman Never do what your enemy expects you to do! Registered User regular
    I literally watched the Giant Bomb video about this yesterday and I'm still not sure what teh specifics were.

    There was something about being able to put 10 people onto your family list, who could play your games; but I got confused on if they could play the games while you were playing them, or how many could play at once, or if they could play different games.

    Here's the video. (Warning, it's 40 damn minutes)

  • I needed a gnome to post.I needed a gnome to post. Don't let the bells end Registered User regular
    I don't think there were specifics, so much as intentions

    the licensing never had to happen so the details never had to be hashed out

    i doubt it would have come out in the ideal state

    The fact that MS did that reveal event without having all of their plans concrete enough so you could ask two different people and get two different answers was stupid. The fact that they didn't lock in that shit before E3 was unforgivable. I can't imagine how much the Xbox hardware and software devs hated those execs for fucking up so badly and so publicly, especially since it meant a ton of crunch to change licensing systems in response to the fallout. Doubly so after Mattrick fucked off to Zynga with a golden parachute while they were left behind trying to save the sinking ship that was only sinking due to him blowing a hole in the hull.

    i'm sure they'd have loved to announce basically nothing at e3 and pushed it to august after all the details were hammered out, but that's the problem with being strapped down to someone else's timetable i guess. and mattrick wasn't bright enough to just say nothing and hold another event after said details were sorted so instead he said the worst possible things.

    that being said it was very bad for the xbox, but i think the neat stuff like play anywhere, game pass, and back compat would never have had a shot with microsoft on top. sony and microsoft both seem pathologically incapable of pushing forward on any consumer friendly paths as long as they're in first. ps3 being a train wreck forced sony to mellow out from their position of extreme arrogance at launch and push stuff like ps plus, and now they've looped back around again.

    Current system is that all digital games you own are available to anyone on your home console. Me and my brother set each other's consoles as "home" and have access to every game either one of us owns. We can even play the same game together that was only purchased once. We have to be online to have access to games that aren't owned by the home account but that isn't been an issue for us yet.

    As always, the issue with always online is rarely "do I have internet", it's "are their fucking servers consistently up". And, in a few years' time, "will they continue supporting them or will your library literally die".

    [edit] Man, the State of Decay 2 playdate sure is very Brad.
    [edit 2] "I don't feel I made any critical mistakes." Peak Brad.

    Yeah, I've been pretty interested in State of Decay, but the playdate had almost unsold me on the game. Luckily, Austin put up a video on Waypoint and focused a lot more on the procedural story-telling which has me back in to it.

    He really sold the character of Quinn Winslow AKA Doctor Quinn Winslow AKA Socrates AKA The New Plato AKA The Radical Pacifist.

    At this point it feels like Skinner boxes are the only thing that makes Brad interested in a game any more. Not meant as a slight against SD2, I like the look of it, I dig the idea of managing bases and people, but he only ever seems to proactively engage with games' numbers go up loops these days.

  • CenoCeno pizza time Registered User regular
    I think Brad has said openly that games could just be a series of colored triangles as long as the mechanics and gameplay are interesting to him.

    Which goes a long way to explain his obsession with stuff like Dota and Destiny and I guess PUBG most recently. Very abbreviated mechanical loop repeated forever.

    Austin is very very good at selling his version of a game that he created in his head because he is an amazing storyteller.

    How good the actual game is at creating these stories for you may vary.

    As long as the colored triangles were locked at 60fps according to Digital Foundry, of course

    I don't disagree with this. I love Diablo to death.

    The main problem is that it undersells (to put it in the most generous term possible) the fact that games aren't just mechanics, and that graphics and sound and production value and story and things like that, however polished or unpolished they may be, actually do matter.

    It's looking at games through a very narrow scope.
