  1. Nintendo at this point are selling three million copies of Mario tennis. Which has the appeal of being Mario, and tennis. Is f-zero as a comparable mid budget title going to get anywhere near that - probably not, no.
  2. It’s not that baffling. The switch has sold through 90+ million consoles. the last mainline fzero game sold - at best 1.5 million copies, and more likely under 700k copies. the last wipeout game under a million on a console which also might have expected a higher attach ratio if there really was that latent demand. why not just go with new IP, rather than lazer targetting forty-somethings who’d also buy the new IP?
  3. you could do two years worth of gold, then top up with the BT, and then worst case exchange the gold for a few months later on.

    If I’d known they’d decided to play a fifty over game, I’d have gone “over 70”.

    Over/under on all out for 70?
  6. it is very dark. I don’t find the imax stuff distracting though on an OLED - can’t work out why.
  7. Given Ready at Dawn are owned by Facebook I guess that a thread positing a PSVR2 port would only end in tears.

    lim sure he’ll appeal. Doubt he’ll get to the end of the tournament though - lying on your visa form sounds like straightforward grounds to dismiss. And if it isn’t, that’d be a hilarious precedent to set.
  9. exactly. It’s basically fancy anti-aliasing - more pixels in the initial image means more information is retained.
  10. sixaxis: - take a perfectly ok DualShock 2, though keeping the sticks in an uncomfortable position because you won’t really change the form factor for another nine years - add pointless waggle that was barely used for anything, let alone gyro aiming - replace perfectly good buttons with floaty unsatisfying triggers, ruling out more frequency games - keep the utterly pointless pressure sensitive buttons - scrap any haptics - install a tiny tiny battery at least the other mainstream controllers mentioned here remained key throughout the consoles life. This was replaced swiftly with the DS3, which was still shit but had haptics.
  11. I’m genuinely amazed by how everything that is interesting (and there’s not much to pick from) about the Eternals - with the exception of Sprite - was entirely lost by this movie. comic book spoilers - well barely, because they’re obvious in the comics and entirely missing here The Gaiman and Gillen runs are so much more interesting, it’s frankly bizarre. Whereas I can’t generally say the same about other comic runs converted to movies, where they haven’t chopped the whole concept basically out wholesale.
  12. and shoot themselves in the foot by not putting it on the subscription service on the PS5?
  13. the rescaling takes place on different hardware cores - as opposed to a conflict as in the AMD cards.
  14. Wildermyth - yeah that’d be worth a writing award: sketching out actual characters procedurally and giving them arcs is pretty special. Can’t see how it’d be fun to play without a mouse though - perhaps they’ll do a touchscreen version on switch?
  15. You just end up with scalpers pre-ordering and things like the overclockers debacle. See also EVGA's queue. People with more money, with multiple preorders, all over the shop, huge queues.
  16. how much of mobile wouldn’t just be “free to play“ though? does premium console include subscriptions of live, psn, nintendo online?
