So capcom is posting a loss of 5 billion yen in mobile gaming, slashing their expected profits from 6.8 billion yen for the year to 3.3 billion.



"Due to rapid changes taking place in the market for games, Capcom is building a sound base for earnings by reorganizing the product development framework and improving development processes. These are two core elements of the company's operations. The objective of these activities is to earn consistent earnings in each fiscal year. However, these initiatives have not yet started to produce benefits mainly in the Mobile Contents."

In short what capcom thought the mobile market was:

I'm too old for this shit. I don't have the lighting-quick reflexes and skill-juggling that I used to. Hell, I don't think I was ever coordinated enough for this. And I made the potential mistake of looking up a video of what I have ahead of me. Holy fuck. I don't want this to be yet another case where I left off on a game when I reached a brutal point, telling myself I'd pick it up again and finish it off later, but I can't imagine myself beating this bit.

I just did that part. The first few bits aren't too bad once you literally know what's up. The part with the saws is intimidating but remember you can cling to a wall for as long as you need to in order to plan your moves -- and that you don't have to use the rocket jump through all of it.

Have you ever, in any way, felt legitimately offended by a video game?

Obvious stuff aside, I feel kind of angry when writer expect you to feel emotional when the writing is really shitty.

Let me try cutting that run-on down to be more comprehensive.

Popular shit gets copied. Sometimes even into other series that want a piece of the pie. That tends to suck for fans of those series, especially when new fans come in and tell them how much "better" the games are now that they're like every other mimic.

To me playing GURPS is fine, if you don't mind playing a little loose with the rules. Because there are rules for just about everything, and god help you if you are playing with a rules lawyer and you actually need to look up the rules on something that only comes up once in a blue moon.

Its a great system if your GM can go "Fuck it this is what iIm gonna do, or else we'll spend half an hour trying to find it" to keep things moving along.
>> No. 186746

I'm inclined to agree. But I'm also of the mind that you should always play loose with the rules, only bring up situational shit as the GM or player if it's adversely affecting the narrative, which is why I said I don't think system matters in the first place. Unless you either want or don't want a tactical miniatures game inside your roleplaying game, then I can see 3rd-4th ed D&D being annoying to have to play in if you don't, or a system like Fate being annoying if you do. Whatever, as long as we're playing games together, that's all that should matter, you know? No sense in getting bent out of shape about other people having different opinions.

really wish there was a way for Bioware to leave this abusive company, though their founders already sold them out and fled, so that point is moot. Its even sadder hearing the Dragon Age Writer talk about what they want to do with character representation, and knowing the next Dragon Age is likely the last game Bioware will make before EA guts them like a fish like they just did to Visceral.

I'm actually horrified by how little we've heard about the game and what micro transaction bullshit they'll put into it, bet its related to relationships.

You know, with all the hate that the Arkh project got, I say we make a good kickstarter thread for projects that are properly proposed and built.

Example: Here is a kickstarter proposed by the multimillionaire Ellwood Bartlett who is trying to make the MMO that everyone has dreamed of making. And you know you can trust this man to get the job done. I mean, you don't become a multimillionaire overnight!

And he's going to make sure you get your god damn guild bank.

Now I need a next-gen system (which is actually current gen now, but whatever). Didn't really have a good feeling when Arkham Origins was announced, but I do have it Arkham Knight. The Game Informer preview was spectacular. Rocksteady really wants to go all out on the final Arkham game.

Was anyone else awed by the character models? I doubt we'll get that in game, but these had to be the most realistic 3D characters I've ever seen.

I think it was the eyes. In close-ups you could see pink around the eye, and then in a shot that zoomed into Batman's face you could see it was bloodshot, and the blood and such was very convincing.

Freedom Wars will also have PvP with prefectures fighting against each other. I wonder how that will translate to the NA release. If it's just choosing a Japanese prefecture to fight for or if it will actually be states warring against each other. Freedom Wars sounds more and more like something that could be incredibly big if it weren't on the most niche of all platforms. I'm really fucking hyped regardless.

I'd rather have TF3 be TF2 vs. TFC, with everything from the previous games so nothing is left behind.
Then you can have people being bitchy that TF2 is better than TF3 so they can go keep playing that.

Anonymous developers have labelled the current state of Xbox One’s graphics drivers “horrible” and claimed the difference between both the Xbox One and PS4 is “significant” and “obvious.”

In a piece about the performance differences between Microsoft and Sony’s new consoles on Edge, a number of unnamed developers have said that while the platform holders continue to refine both systems, Sony’s is currently easier to work with.

According to one source, Microsoft has "been late on their drivers and that has been hurting them.” Another source says that the Xbox One graphics drivers are "horrible".

It is also being reported that the PS4’s memory reads between 40-50% faster than Xbox One, and that the PS4‘s Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) is around 50% faster than Xbox One’s.

The article says that a “platform-agnostic development build can run at around 30FPS in 1920×1080 on PS4, but it’ll run at ‘20-something’ FPS in 1600×900 on Xbox One”.

All sources stress that work on the graphics drivers will continue up to and beyond the Xbox One’s release, so it’s not a done deal. For now, however, it’s reportedly a pain in the ass.

Microsoft has already spoken on the issue of performance differences between the Xbox One and the PS4, saying “the way people are calculating the differences between the two machines isn't completely accurate.”

But it’s important to note that this latest information is direct from developers themselves who are used to actually working with the machines.

Yeah. Maybe the companies should experiment with that model.
The reason the price of PS2 games dropped before was because Sony was overcharging for their stuff, if I'm recalling my pedantic video game news from 8-10 years ago correctly.

This seems legitimate, but I wager the used game market is simply impossible to kill. Getting rid of the brick and mortar of Gamestop or cutting into the reseller business would just hurt the reselling. eBay would start thriving hotter, local dealers would pick up business but not grow beyond a certain point.
and the end result would still be people choose to forego new games even more, because of the practices being used to screw over the consumers. Microsoft is in for a world of pain, but Sony might hang around. Depending how duplicitous the 'third party decision' thing is.

Figure since Yule Tide is upon us and Black Friday(MURICA)/Cyber Monday is approaching fast it would be good to have a thread dedicated to video game sales/deals and gift giving, for those with funds and heart to spare. May as well also use this for setting up Steam trades. If you find a good deal, even if limited time (days, not minutes), feel free to post it.

To kick it off: I was pointed to this neat-looking (I haven't tried it, but Lifehacker likes it) website that checks various game outlets to find you the best deal on a game you're looking for. You can set up lists, exclude websites, and even import your Steam wishlist. Plus, it shows other regions, for those not in the States. http://isthereanydeal.com

Also, everyone's favorite charity vidya has a "permanent" store. The deals aren't as great as "pay what you want", and the percentages are locked (so no 100% to charity), but you don't have to get a big bundle with some un-wanted games you're stuck with and the selection seems a bit wider. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

An old man plays piano. It’s a very sad sounding song. It’s missing some of it’s notes and the meanings lost in the playing. Tired hands forgetting their places more often nowadays. But still he plays. Through will he conquers the ever closing fog of time and plays on. And it only makes the old song sadder. Where is the impetuous youth that would sing it at the top of his lungs with all his might behind it? Now? Just an old man, fumbling with keys.

Lions (in most real world cultures) are symbols of power. The classical fire element is associated with the astrological sign Leo, along with Aries (the ram) and Sagittarius (the centaur archer), and a lot of media commonly associates the two. I'm just throwing around ideas, but maybe the fact that Lynels are lion centaurs could be why they're fire breathers, and the archery may be in play with the arrows? Not sure about the thieves though.

Probably doesn't mean anything, but the Magic Key in AoL has 3 spikes, not too unlike the goron symbol or more likely, the sheikahn eye.
