Made some headway (9 hrs.) into Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It fascinates me as what feels like a tryhard "Switch port" of a PS4 game, except there is no PS4 counterpart. It runs at 720p docked, even in menus. The resolution scaling can kick in hard during battles and cutscenes with tons of effects, turning them into sub-HD mush. Its rendering pipeline is decidedly current-gen, with what looks like physically-based rendering (cel shading aside) and temporal anti-aliasing, so a hypothetical "Switch pro" or a future version of Yuzu emulator running the game at an unlocked resolution could be transformative. Its environments are strikingly detailed. But for now, the game recalls its predecessor, which ran at a paltry 480p on the Wii and proved to be relatively majestic on an emulator @ 1080p.

Content-wise it's more colorful and better-paced. The liberal translation, though, tries to remove every ounce of Japanese-ness, which makes for an interesting clash with the Japanese voice pack, in which the characters are constantly telling different jokes and often carry entirely different names. I don't get the point of that approach with a game that's already so undeniably 150% anime-y. #nintendo #videogames

To be fair, Need for Speed: Undercover isn't a very good game on its own, but I'm willing to overlook a lot of flaws to be able to drive a pimped Mazda RX-8 through traffic over another fantastic soundtrack: https://open.spotify.com/user/needforspeed/playlist/4EhsPhejrIGJLw63zrNgQX

I bought Transistor because it was made by Supergiant Games, the creators of Bastion, and I ended up reinstalling Bastion again, because it's so good.

I've never liked the argument that #videogames were good because they could somehow improve reflexes or anything other skill. I've been playing video games for 28 years now and I'm still panicking in tense situations arising because of tunnel vision.

 
I've rarely seen a game so stingy with achievements like Northgard by Shiro Games: only 10/81 after completing the story mode. Good. Achievements aren't meant to reward players for a playthrough they would have done anyway. See blog.mrpetovan.com/game-design-ti…

Game Design Tips #1 : Far goals are appealing

 
Hello, Im #newhere and interested in #motorcycles, #technology, and #videogames. I was incredibly excited about Diaspora when it was first announced but ended up not getting it an honest shot. Looking to see how its evolved since then.

I'm curious about this platform and hope to meet new friends! Would love to talk about anything really (the stuff I listed are just the things I'm actively interested in, but I'm passively interested in just about anything to be honest).

 
Some of my favorite recent-ish subreddit discoveries:

- Fairy Tale as Fuck (all real locations): https://reddit.com/r/FairytaleasFuck

- Incorgnito. Corgie dog mixes mostly turn out to look like Corgied versions of the other breed. There’s a reason for that: https://reddit.com/r/Incorgnito

Another great example of
how old games really looked like -vs- how they are displayed today

Weil es gerade im wieder im Bayerischen Fernsehen läuft: Eine sehr schöne Doku von Arte und BR über "Video Games Music", viel am Beispiel von Final Fantasy und dessem Soundtrack von Nobuo Uematsu. #Musik #Music #VideoGames #Gaming #Doku #Doku-Tipp

I’m just now starting #Witcher3 and it’s amazing. Why did I wait so long to play this game? #videogames #ps4
