Good artists copy. Great artists steal.

I actually thought Unreal and Unreal Tournament were far superior especially when you consider they shipped with Unreal Ed which was WAY ahead of its time. Carving out space rather than inserting was genius and avoided the problem of cracks appearing in you're level which messed up the space partitioning algorithm.

 

lets not forget about Metal Gear Solid and other such achievement's from other segments of the industry that really knocked my socks off.

Oh joy, another round of the Android Incompatibility Game.... </jaded android developer>

This.  The L preview was not nice to our games.  Now that it is actually going to come out soon we have to do the 'stupid hacks for new Android version' song and dance.

 

 

reminds of a famously bad browser Google fan boys liked to hate on. Surely they should all be switching to windows phone by now...

 

Almost everyone I know who has ever upgraded an android phone has basically had to buy a new phone or stick with a partially bricked one.


In Topic: Would you Still Play Nintendo 64-Quality Games?

love them, also love playing late 90's games with high res, e.g. Age Of Empires 2 @ 4k. You hardly ever have to scroll!

 

dungeon keeper 2 also rocks on widescreen / infinite zoom out. You can almost play it on touch screen (almost, its a bit glitchy).

 

Full screen emulators today are fun, yes its stretched but in the past it was always 4:3 @ 17". Plus the joystick doesn't stick all the time. You can save via memory snapshot and use any control setup you desire (any game).

 

Sega classics on steam is a great purchase.

I think the XBone has undersold for completely different reasons.

 

The xbox 360 is a great console and a great media centre. For me, I like the 360 and I play it sometimes buy mainly I use it for TV / Dvd's / casual gaming. A lot of people are like this (which I why MS marketed the XBone in such a way) thus there is no reason to upgrade to XBone one at that price point. This is certainly a bad thing for MS.

 

However, I think we will see 360 users upgrade at a much slower pace.

 

Of the people I know who own a ps3 (and have never owned an xbox product) they have been faced with constant problems (like games not being able to save or games completely broken with online updates), i'm not surprised they have upgraded to ps4 at such a rate. Fanboism at its finest.

 

Lets not loose sight of the fact that MS came out of nowhere with the original Xbox and put sony to shame, stealing a large market share in very little time. All things considered the xbox family tree has been a PITA for sony since day one and I don't think that is going to change.

 

TBH, I tend to hate on sony but both consoles are a bit pooh if you want to be objective. Neither are really pushing boundaries.
