Rumor has it the firmware update is taking place on Tuesday. Hence the take down of PSN for 6 hrs on Monday. As for simple features not being enabled. Neither console was finished at launch. Work in progress and released them just for holiday sales. It worked. They could be the biggest and most buggy pos out. Sheeple will still flock to it.

I posted that to get full 5.1 DD+, you have to switch the PS settings to bitstream (dolby) then play a netflix movie, which will still be in 2ch, pause the movie and from the netflix settings, change it from 5.1 to 2ch and back to 5.1 again (one time thing) and you then have full 5.1 DD+, as my receiver indicates and sounds great. At this point, ive just left the PS settings to bitstream dolby and it doesn't affect your bluray settings. Until there is a fix for this, I can live with these settings and i honestly don't notice a loss in quality whatsoever.

I've been playing "Don't Starve" via remote play with my Vita this weekend. I really like that the game realizes you are playing remote play and tailors the controls to that method of input. I just wish they had expanded the HUD a little more so you can see what you are selecting better.

If NBA2k14 had done the same with their controls it would have made remote play much better.

Hmm, wonder what Epic will be up to now? Kind of figured Microsoft already owned this IP but good on them for snagging it. This could open up Cliffy B's old team for something. Hopefully a good multiplat... wink.gif

I think they just published it but it was pretty fun. Hopefully Epic won't be doing the MMO thing. Maybe it's time for Unreal to come back?

Unreal Tournament, hellz yea! The last one that came to console felt awful in the control area. Be nice if they made it console friendly.

Saw this is the xbone thread. Has it been mentioned here. The amount of possible depth per concept/game mechanic is astounding.

Skipped that too. There is plenty of story to tell be it side stories or whatever but the Marcus and Co story is dead as dead can be. Its like Mass Effect, can keep going but don't see how it can feel fresh now that the main story is done. I'm sure there is a way but still.

CliffyB is working on something new I believe. He’s also a total DB (to his customers) and I don’t care much what it is.

There’s better developers and creative personalities out there to support that don’t blame their customers for (AAA) industrys' inability to stick to budgets or put out compelling products. He’s the guy that thinks “entitled gamers” and used games are killing the industry, while he disparages us from the seat of his two Countachs’.

I don’t begat people for being very successful, but give me a break.

I thought he went on to another company though? I'm talking the team he had at Epic unless they all got reassigned. He is a DB on many levels....

That would be me. Glad you gave it a shot and you liked it! smile.gif They really did an amazing job on that piece of software. I'm buying it again on the PS4 just on principle.

Getting Bluetooth will not bother me since they included the plugin on the controller which I believe was a excellent decision.

It does make useless the previous generation of blurtooth headsets though for the ps3

I guess Microspft didn't like the rumor that Gears was going multiplat once the contract was up (Judgement finished it) so they bought it from Epic outright. I wonder if Epic will keep developing the game or if an internal dev team will make it and just license UE4?

Press release says Black Tusk Studios (First Party MS). I hope the game turns out well.

Yeah, I read up on it after making that post. Hopefully they go back to the Gears 1 style, that is the only way I would be interested in the series again. (#3 was a huge letdown to the point that I ignored Judgement)

I thought something was off in that scene...Oh well, I've seen wierder edits before. (like Celes' jail scene in FFVI, they cut her getting hit in the GBA port) Lara still gets beat in that scene, and it still made me cringe.

I noticed in pictures that the "blood pool" emergence was toned way back as well

I wonder if it has something to do with them adding those “drip maps” and subsurface scattering to the character model (ie technical), or if it was an editorial choice?

Bulletstorm was made by People Can Fly, a wholly owned subsidiary of Epic. Their next game was Gears of War: Judgment.

Yeah, I loved the story of the first two and went a ahead and bought GoW3 special edition console bundle since my buddy wanted to buy my older 360. After playing the third one thought there was a bit of a sour taste in my mouth at the way they left the story open at the end...so much so that I had no interest in Judgement.

GoW 2 for me since that one had 4 player co-op if I remember correctly.

Yep, GoW 2 introduced Horde mode. That was a game changer...even Halo copied it wink.gif

I loved playing horde mode in GoW 2. At the time it was biggest game changer in my mind...it blew me away.
