    Here are the games they showed at Microsoft's E3. > They've announced more media features than games at this point. No they didn't... Overall I thought it was pretty good.

    Another celebrity death

    For some reason I was confusing this guy with the roller blade guy from Heartbreak High, but no we're talking about the original American version.

    Far Cry 3 Who else is pumped ?

    I actively dislike trailers that don't show actual gameplay because they misconstrude the real product but my passion for spreading gaming news neutralizes it. Leaked cinematic for FC3 on a Russian website. http://vd.reborn.ru/?a=watch&id=86350

    xbox 720 specs

    I have a gut feeling that Microsoft want to make a more casual oriented console than the X360, more like somewhere between the Wii and X360 so I actually think it's possible to see a tablet and a Kinect bundled in the X720 at $300. So while those 6770 are dissapointing for core gamers I think Microsoft are thinking in terms of potential consumer base and further mainstream penetration. I believe Microsoft are willing to sell the console at a loss at its launch but I remember reading that Steve Balmer has said they don't want to lose money on a console anymore so once they nail that supply chain it's got to be an entire box with peripherals at a cost point lower than $300. Consider Microsoft's current messaging for the X360, it's about entertainment & casual games.

    The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360

    The dev kits that developers use allow for higher resolution rendered screenshots with higher targeted MSAA, an X360 build can only run on an XDK. I do agree that these press shots or bullshots will look better than the actual game.

    xbox 720 specs

    With the original Xbox Microsoft literally integrated a Geforce 3 TI, for the X360 they used a custom made graphics card that was built to their specifications, actually it was the first graphics card to have a unified shader system which PC hardware have now emulated. If assuming the rumour is true it doesn't surprise me, Microsoft have for the last few years chased casual gamers, even from its inception the X360 was industrially designed to be palpable to casual gamers and XBLA initially facilitated those casual games. The Wii proved that cheap hardware and motion controls can sell a lot of consoles and it doesn't surprise me if Microsoft want to compete in that market space, I still think it's possible Microsoft will release a cheap console with cross mobile development in 2012 against the Wii U.

    Australia Day gaming meter image scale thing.

    Funny, some of them though are a long fetch. I would say the one I'm most charmed by is the TF2 sniper, he works within that world, his accent is spot on and he draws from recognizable Australian characteristics.

    Red Dead Redemption PC/Steam

    It's hard to get an educated opinion without knowing the sales of Rockstar games and the development story of RDR, from what I understand it took five years to get that game done and they had to invent certain technologies to create the vast draw distances in that game. It wouldn't surprise me if a bad attitude from the community deterred a PC release, gamers can be repulsive self centered lot

    GOTY 2011

    Diso I wish you didn't put the exclamation marks on Portal 2, it's a menial complaint but showing preference in the poll tarnishes the neutrality of what it should be. I chose LA Noire for my GOTY, in terms of writing and technology it's as close as a game has gotten to the movies. Intelligent is how I would describe it. Skyrim is satisfying but it's still janky and shallow, 90% of quests are fetch quests, people behave like corpses in their own little world, some of the art direction and all the ambient lighting ruins the aesthetic for me and I don't think the writing is that good. I remember listening to a lady who said she didn't want to get married because she wanted to focus on her daughter, but this isn't the 21st century, this is a primeval primitive world where people would live rough and desperately, there's no tension in the world, conflicts seem out of touch and convenient. There was a discussion about the bugginess of Skyrim? Scripting problems affect all versions, the X360 version has been relatively solid, the streaming bug when installed didn't make the game less enjoyable, the PS3 version though seemed to get a real beating.
