In Topic: Amazon Fire TV (as a game console)

I bought one to export my game to. My game didn't work on it, which makes the system almost useless.


Wait... What did you expect? If you wrote the engine yourself, you should expect there to be some porting pains. If you're using an engine like Unity and its export feature, you should expect that it's not going to just work without intervention on a brand-new platform.


And that maybe makes it 'disappointing', but not 'useless'.



True. However, the console also has other problems. No on/off button, a couple games on the store didn't work correctly, and yet others were buggy. Expect a tablet experience or worse.


Had it not been for these problems, I would have completely forgiven the problems I faced.

I think I pretty much had that same power supply in a computer running an overclocked GTX 570 once. It held up just fine. Although, Newegg lists it as being out-of-stock now.


Any reason for a 120GB Intel SSD in addition to another bigger SSD and a 2TB hard drive?

Slight thumbs down -

With that said, there are some redeeming factors. Such as Sev Zero, which is really fun, and it makes a good console for playing No Brakes Valet.

In Topic: So no one was impressed with E3?

This was a great E3 for me.


What I liked the best was Halo 1-4 collection was officially confirmed (Xbox One), and getting to see Splatoon (Wii U). Honorable mention as well, is the new Zelda (Wii U).

You don't own a game console because of the theoretical capabilities. At least, normal people don't.


This actually worries me. If normal people don't care about theoretical capabilities, then consoles can sell like crazy yet remain stagnant.


If no one cares about theoretical capabilities in game consoles, we might still be on NES, Atari, or worse.


I think some people do care though. In the XBox/GameCube/PS2 days, the PS2 clearly won games wise. However, the XBox continued to sell. I don't think we can assume that everyone who bought a XBox, bought it for Halo. Some probably bought it for the fact it was pretty much the most powerful system then, as well.
