John and Brenda Romero: single-player shooters will make a comebackJohn and Brenda Romero: single-player shooters will make a comeback

No mention of Wolfenstein? That's an SP FPS.

Apart from that, great interview. They are both pretty much elder statesmen of gaming.

If Hitman doesn't sell by the bucket-load over the Stream Summer Sale, there's no justice.

Here's why that guy dropped the ball during the EA Play livestreamHere's why that guy dropped the ball during the EA Play livestream

The headline says 'this is why' something happened. The article doesn't actually explain why anything happened.

You say it looks like he choked while reading the prompter but offer nothing definitive. Was it their first try using a live teleprompter and he didn't have the experience to handle it properly? Had he been eating just before presenting (generally a bad idea) and choked on phlegm.

OR.... was having an 'embarrassing' incident just what his youtube channel needed to get all sorts of free press in a new market? Fortunately for him, you don't really report anything and just link back to his own clip.

I'm pretty sure doing a good job and setting himself up for more work with EA (and anyone else, for that matter) would have been more profitable. Now, he looks a bit of a berk, and no-one would touch him with a bargepole if they wanted someone to present for them.

Cool! Intel have been concentrating on efficiency for so long (not that that's a bad thing), that it's nice to hear they will be looking at some balls-to-the-wall maximum clocking for once.

CD Projekt Red held at ransom over stolen Cyberpunk 2077 filesCD Projekt Red held at ransom over stolen Cyberpunk 2077 files

I have no interest in seeing the files, I'd rather wait for CDPR to tell us. Hopefully media organizations / gaming sites also don't link to the files and give these punks any signal boost.

It sounds like the thief spoke to the wrong people. He should have threatened gamers that he would release the stuff, unless they paid him not to. ;)

Thank God, DA is seeing another game (I'm assuming it's not a DA Tactics game).Reply

They should have just let it die after Inquisition. I bet he is writing great quest about collecting all the crystals you find ;P

They are still working within the game's rules though, even if they are unintended. (I agree with you that cheating should invalidate a speed run, though. If they had used a cheat code instead of the recycling glitch, I'd be dismissing this, too.)

I'm pretty certain that "real" cheating does indeed invalidate a speed run. I'm not saying that speed runs are dumb and I know that exploiting the game (even glitches) are allowed. I just don't enjoy those kind of runs.

Considering they are the ones who did the work to put the modding tools in the game, I don't that has anything to do with it.

Modding tools or QA tools?

XCOM 2 review snippet Are the aliens in XCOM 2 scary?
Scary and unknown. The first time a Sectopod unfolds over you, or a Gatekeeper lets off a shot is like the first time you saw a Blaster Bomb explosion from the first game (the one with the hyphen).

Exactly. And I think Bioware are suffering from butting up against the Uncanny Valley. I'm also very interested to see what CDProject are doing for Cyberpunk 2077. They are the only other people I can think of that are doing facial animation at this detail and frequency.

Agreed -- but their mistake was not grappling with it.

While I'm sure there is better porn out there on the Internet, hopefully Origin doing this will push Steam into being a bit less puritan about what is in their games catalogue.Reply

Steam being puritan? They have The Witcher 3...

Chime review snippet How good is the Chime soundtrack?
It's a music game, so it needs to have a good soundtrack that works with the gameplay., and it does.
