    Edge #325 - Settle your scores here ;)

    Oh I’m absolutely sure it’s just because I got in to it as a teenager.

    Edge #325 - Settle your scores here ;)

    The Superbrothers Sword and Sworcery time extend was great this month, exactly the sort of analysis of a forgotten oddity I like to see in that section. The slightly obscure and pretentious subject matter and the necessarily postmodern discussion of it felt like my favourite early 2000s Edge too.

    Star Citizen - Fishing for Space Whales

    It’s a very good idea for a game that will have a big role playing component, but eye tracking has never made sense to me. Your focus is going to be on the screen, so how do you keep eye contact with the camera? Does it correct for that?

    SNES Mini

    Unless the photos were taken with a camera the size of a raisin or it's the size of a Mini that's a render. The perspective and depth of field are all wrong.
  5. I think you’d still get the benefit of it on a big screen like IMAX even with a normal print. The contrast between the grainier footage used for most of the movie, and the super-crisp large format scenes in the vacuum is tangible. My local picture house’s screen is big but I wonder what it would’ve looked like even bigger.

    Star wars Apeiron

    Yes I am sure Lucasfilm and official licencee EA are chomping at the bit to get blamed for the mistakes of an amateur HD update of a beloved classic. People (like the AM2R guy) get hired off the back of this stuff when they show an uncommon grasp of game development skills. That’s pretty rare.

    PlayStation 5

    Sony setting low expectations is working apparently.
  8. Exactly, even the book didn't think it was exactly the mission's proudest moment. And the darn thing fell over when they took off again.
  9. The 2018 edition of the book has the film down for 2019, so I think that was originally the plan. Not sure why it changed. This is absolutely tremendous. It explores the negative space of the book, so to speak - the internal lives of Armstrong and his family - but the effect is the same: the Space Race as an insanely risky, implausibly heroic endeavour, and Armstrong as the supernaturally good hearted but private hero at the centre. The moon landing sequence itself was staggering.

    What’s the overlap between people who like EDF and people who like Destiny? Remote Play grinding of Destiny scratches the same itch for me as trying to 100% EDF but I think I play Destiny wrong. (I could be perfectly happy with a formless procedurally generated version.)

    Could all the subs covers be shinies from now on?

    PlayStation 5

    From the small number and randomness of the PS2 classics, I think emulating those games is difficult and probably takes a lot of fine tuning.
  14. The first is the best, and the least open world. My closest comparison point would be Metroid Prime. Definitely try it even if you didn’t like the others.

    Venom (2018) - Boring. Silly. Funny.

    I don’t know that it was always meant to be that, but the choice of director certainly gave the game away.
