    Games development and obscure football. One day I promise to combine the two.

    Trans Fats - get them before they get you.

    XBOX gamepass and Xbox app coming to switch?

    A system such as that means running the games natively on the Switch. If you can do that, you may as well go the whole hog and release them on it. Boop - already covered above I see!

    The Game Development Thread

    Afraid I can't help you with the issue, although I think your plan of getting one sent to an EU developer and then forwarded on should be fine unless the kits themselves are somehow registered with a specific dev or company. Just posting to say I love the look of that.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    It's definitely the case that Crackdown 3 sits perfectly in the "I've got time to play, but not for a long stretch" hole. You don't feel like you're firing up the game just to bumble around and not really commit to the next mission because fuck knows if you've got the time for it. Also it's fun to leap around. Even the camera niggles I had during my initial few propaganda towers have faded as I've got more familiar with it all - I think there's still a problem there to solve, but it becomes less an issue with time.

    And that's why I was banned from Pokemon GO.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    It's more likely they won't. Assuming they keep progressing, there's a 14% chance they'll meet in the quarter final and a 33% chance of meeting in the semi. Hence the chance of them not meeting until the final is around 58%. All assuming a fair draw and the absence of mystic bullshit like fate. Though the second is the only banker there.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility - Server Runtime Error

    How much different is Return from Darkness compared to Wrath of Heaven? I've only played (and loved) the latter.

    How do you restart a lockdown? The tooltip appeared when I died during one and I didn't get a chance to read it fully.

    I love the way the game encourages you to work clockwise around the island by gradually revealing locations in that direction, each one of greater intensity, but never forces you into doing it.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I notice I get occasional freezes the longer I've been playing (when you include suspend and resume time as well). An Xbox restart seems to resolve them but it's a mite inconvenient.

    What type of retro fan are you?

    I'm not a collector - retro gaming for me is about playing either games I loved from the past, or games I missed out on because as a kid, you don't have the luxury of owning all the systems and having the money to buy everything. When it comes to emulation, I opt for some degree of authenticity of input if I can. That means playing SNES games on either a modded Wii or a SNES Mini rather than on a PC with an Xbox One pad, because the SNES pad I get to use adds a lot to the charm. I'll play my PS1 games on the PS3, taking advantage of the fact that it's already hooked up and I get a nice wireless Dual Shock 3 to use that still feels much like I remember the first Dual Shock being. For display, I like things to be pixel perfect. No filters other than perhaps a CRT one if I think it looks appealing. That goes for both pixel art and 3D graphics - I'm fascinated by the low-poly, low-resolution stuff pumped out by the PS1 or N64 and would much rather play them like that than have a layer of smoothing or high resolution graphics that jar with the low resolution textures.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    If I had paid £50 for this I'd be having the same amount of fun. Any bad feeling would be because I could have been playing it for £2 - that's nothing to do with the game.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Hmm yeah, never thought of that. No option in the game but as it's a system-provided thing, there's really no need to. I guess you could remap it to either A or the right stick click, both of which are jump so you'd not lose functionality.
