Okay I just watched the episode and I can confirm that their arguments are dumb as hell. Let me quote something here: "We are denying our community the most effective tools for dealing with bullies." No extra credits you are wrong. It is called a mute button and it has existed for almost as long as voice chat has. If you feel like some douche is harassing you just press it and presto problem solved. There is no need at all to implement any of the ridiculous measures you are proposing here.
^People should not have to mute their whole system just because people are too rude because they are hidden behind their keyboards. I find it a joke that anyone would defend BM behavior like this unless they have a weak character and can't voice these things face to face.

|Sci-fi RPG Title Kitaru - Concept Art and Intro Video. (1) | Posted on April 23, 2012, 7 a.m.|
|This game has awesome art style.|
Kitaru is the latest kickstarter project by Aoineko Studios. The game is stated to be an Science Fiction RPG. Aoineko Studios has released some amazing concept art along with an intro video to the game.
Currently the game is being developed for PC, Iphone/Ipad and Androids, however they did state that it may release for the major consoles later on.
The nation of Saph teeters on the brink of war, both with itself and a neighboring country of vastly superior strength and technology. When Saphs best agent, the beautiful, headstrong Akai enlists the help of janitor/hackerboy Tama they discover the darkest secret they can imagine when a supposedly dangerous revolutionary reveals that his only true crime was an idea. He will force them to confront which is worse for their land: outright civil war, or the perpetual twilight of tyranny. As both countries prepare for battle, Akai and Tama can only meet their destiny in the presence of Saphs final target, a desert wanderer called Kitaru. A mysterious girl who can command the skies and move the sea, she alone will hold the key to breaking Saphs grip on its people, to restoring peace and showing Akai the truth about her past.

That is one thing Blizzard games do have, they are fun to play, they are polished and have that "easy to learn, but hard to master" feeling.

|BG: Enhanced Edition developer adds Nat Jones as developer. (3) | Posted on April 19, 2012, 9:51 p.m.|
|Here are some other details:|
Trent Oster has been a man possessed since the announcement of Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. The president of publisher Beamdog has been on Twitter tirelessly answering questions from fans while giving out little unannounced tidbits here and there to the swarming masses.
Among the more interesting items:
■The level cap for BGEE will be increased.
■A bad experience with Nintendo leaves no hope of a Wii U version.
■After fan feedback, a boxed edition of the game is being explored, beyond just digital distribution.
■The game will be localized in German, French and Spanish, with more languages in the works.
■There is no plan for more than six characters in a player's party.
And that was just within the last 24 hours. Other tidbits from last week:
■The enemy AI will continue to be a pain in the butt, even with the new content.
■Emphasis is being placed on great voice talent for the new content. Several actors have been auditioned. If new voice-over work is done for Minsc, Jim Cummings will reprise the role.
■Mod support will be improved.
■Updates for BGEE will be slower going than planned.
■No plans for Xbox version because of controller issues.
■Beamdog will not be doing an enhanced Ultima.
■A Baldur's Gate 3 would take some heavy reworking.
■Icewind Dale is a candidate for enhancement if BGEE is a success. The game would use the BGEE code base.
Considering his track record, Oster will continue to tweet out the details even before the official announcements are made. So keep watching if you are a fan.

|I am curious on how this benefits a game like this, but I guess from a creative point of view this could be cool. I am wondering if the writer of the article went too far by saying this is a HD remake, or if they really plan ot make it 1080p or above for the PC. I just hope they make sure this works completely with Window 7, instead of having all the glich issues. |
Are you as excited as I am for the re-emergence of Baldur's Gate this summer? If so, you'll be pleased to hear that Overhaul Games just brought a brand new art director into the fold. His name is Nat Jones and he's got a little bit of experience here and there, you know, with Spawn, 28 Days Later, '68, nothing big.
If you slide on over to Nat's official webpage, you can see he obviously has an intricate dark fantasy style about him. He had this to say about the recent transition:
"I am excited and honored to be a part of the talented team bringing Baldurs Gate back to the fans. There is a lot going into Baldurs Gate: Enhanced Edition, we have some amazing things in the works."
It appears to be a perfect fit with the new game and I can't wait to see what he draws up for one of my all-time favourite games.
Still slated to release later this summer, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a high-definition remake of the classic. The game will retain all of what made it so unforgettable but with improved visuals and will also include new story arcs, locations and other features.
|Will EA Ruin Dragon Age 3. (5) | Posted on April 19, 2012, 1:52 p.m.|
|Mr David Gaider, whose imagination and writing talent is up there with the best, was told to make more. After Origins very final ending, they released an expansion and some DLC, it was all good. The last piece, Witch Hunt, even had a cliff-hanger that had fans discussing the sequel to no end. A sequel which would come and disappoint pretty much everyone! It was mass effect 2 all over again, in fact it even used Mass effect 2s engine AND reused some of its textures. It ripped the dialog wheel, and like Mass Effect 2, it felt more of an action game in places. The animations were over the top, the mage spells were huge explosions, it basically sold out to try and attract new fans! The story was weaker, the characters were blah, the choices were uninvolving, the romance options sucked, and they had another dumb DLC character who nobody liked. It just felt rushed and more like a filler episode then a direct sequel.|
Plus, it had no real consequences to it, I remember with my evil elf in Awakenings, I had to do EVERYTHING alone, seriously, I told everyone to get lost, got Anders hung, and traipsed the Deep Roads and Black Marsh solo. It just felt like Bioware was not allowed to make a game like that anymore. It had no freedom to it and you couldnt even be evil, instead you had to make do with being direct, yay .
This is all showing a downward trend, and it is not right, David Gaider is a great writer, EA please let him write the game he wants, let the team make the game they want, do not force them to create multiplayer modes with bloody real world money packs, and a goddamned ending thats rushed, due to your inpatient deadlines and future milking of a franchise. Bioware knows its losing fans, and it also knows that, for many, Dragon Age 3 could be the icing on the cake.
However, deep down financial power will always triumph, Bioware WILL keep dumbing down their games, eventually Mass Effect will become a Gears of War clone, and Dragon Aage will probably be the, every other year, filler between Biowares main cash cow.
There is a lot of expectation for Dragon Age 3, and it has been very publically stated that the writers of Dragon Age are asking fans to be proactive and to get on forums and tell them what they want to see (or not see) in Dragon Age 3. So I am pleading for you all to get on those forums, tell them what you want, so that we can have the game that we all want and deserve!
And if we dont, well Bioware . I hope those free corporate muffins were worth it.
|Will EA Ruin Dragon Age 3. (1) | Posted on April 19, 2012, 1:51 p.m.|
|This is a pretty accurate article and personally I think they will ruin it just to try to get more COD style sales numbers. |
Let us start with the Mass Effect Series, as the first two games pretty much compare with the Dragon Age series direction. They are well polished, beautiful games, but with a slightly worrying trend. The amount of dumbing down from the first game seems an obvious attempt to appeal to a larger audience. The first game had it all, big decisions, weapons that progressively became stronger, loot, and a speech-craft system that was pretty unique. Mass Effect 2, with EAs stupid anti pre-owned Cerberus system (which, by the way is a cheap way to milk more money out of gamers) was more a Gears of War style shooter, than a classy RPG. It was still awesome, though some of the characters where annoying, (*cough* Miranda and Jacob) and the choices didnt seem to be major, unlike the first. However, the suicide mission redeemed the game for me, and after letting Thane die (who, by the way is a bloody assassin who crawls through vents and unlocks doors on a regular basis! So well done Bioware for making me make a genuine mistake) I was really excited to play the third with my Shepards own unique story
Then the 3rd game was announced, were going to combine elements from the first two, Bioware said, it is going to be great, it is going to be bigger, more dialog, and it is going to have Multiplayer! This sounds eerily familiar if you have been following Dragon Age 3 news .
I am by no means being overly negative about the game, it is a great game, amazingly well written, but upon playing the game I found we had less dialog choices, a Multiplayer mode where you can buy weapon packs for real world money, Day one DLC for a stupid Prothean Dude (who was on the disc anyway), and a goddamned ending that felt rushed to hell. In my opinion, an obvious result of EA grabbing the team by the throat saying, no, no, no, you will not finish this game until we have bled the fans pockets to death! In other words, do not answer all the questions, do not have major ending choices that will make future games in the universe impossible to make, because we are going to be making a lot more.
So lets compare that with Dragon Age. Origins was a damn fine game, it had interesting characters, interesting plot line, major decisions that actually affected the game. The amount of different outcomes at the Landsmead and the end of the game, were remarkable. It even had six different intros and character backgrounds, which had implications throughout the game. Now, if you research it, you will discover EA had little to no input into this game, none! They were too busy releasing their annual rip off sports games (which, each year would be the same, with updated teams, but little to no engine changes). Then, like Mass Effect, EA sticks their nose in and says aloud, Were onto something here.

|If they don't drop the Vita by summer, Sony will see the worst sales of any console/handheld release in the last 10 years. Sony's losses for the next quarter will be higher than 6.8bn yen.|
|PS Vita's Worst Week Hits Japan --Should We Be Worried? (1) | Posted on April 16, 2012, 7:40 a.m.|
|While this article shows that the Vita is selling horribly, the fact that the author says Sony won't do a price drop soon is laughable. The graphs are on the link page, and it doesn't look good. |
If Sony are to be concerned about any aspect of the PS Vitas sales its that on the whole the from-launch sales curves for it and the 3DS look very similar. Before anyone gets too excited though remember that the 3DS had a February launch compared to the PS Vitas December one. February, March and April are quiet months for console and game sales and on that graph the 3DS is already into June so it is comparing sales at different times of the year and we would expect sales to be starting to pick up.
That peak at the end of the 3DS line makes an important point though. Thats the week that Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D launched in Japan. Software is undoubtedly the key to hardware sales once the initial excitement about a shiny new toy with blue LEDs has worn off. The PS Vita had a spectacular launch line-up of titles but it desperately needs a second wave of system-selling games.
I for one think it unlikely that Sony will panic over PS Vita sales like Nintendo did when the 3DS failed to perform at retail last summer. I doubt we will see a price drop announced before gamescom 2012 in mid-august where I suspect Sony will announce price drops for both PS Vita and PS3.
My biggest concern for the PS Vita is that if Sony does intend to release the successor to the PS3 (and as an aside I would be very surprised if they call it the PS4) that Sonys developer studios will be switching focus to that new platform already much the same as happened with the PSP releasing the year before the PS3.
The PS Vita also needs memory cards with higher capacities and soon. Where are the 32GB cards for Europe? Why are there no 64GB cards anywhere? As our cards fill up and we start having to juggle their contents every time we want to download something new we are all going to be less inclined to make all those impulse purchases arent we?

Consoles have always fared better than PCs when it comes to piracy, and as a result console games have traditionally been free of the sorts of digital rights management that PC gamers have been using for years. But while the simple requirement of a physical DVD is an impediment to casual downloaders of illegal content, that physical format has also left consoles with an Achilles heel that has been getting a lot of attention in the press these days: used games.
Both the next Xbox and Playstation have been rumored to have restrictions on used games. Its an attempt to move all games distribution into official channels, and it has already rankled consumers. We like hunting through bargain bins, and we like borrowing discs from friends.
Its all a lot of hot air, in my opinion. Digital distribution will effectively kill the used games market, and any posturing on the part of console makers wont do anything except infuriate their fans. Once digital distribution takes over, the basic mechanics of a console interface will shut down most casual pirates. Those willing to jump through the hoops required to pirate console games represent a small minority of committed thieves who arent going to bow to any attempts to corral them.
That doesnt mean that the console makers still couldnt shoot themselves in the foot through excessive posturing. They should learn from the PC industry here attempts to tighten grips on consumers have a way of forcing more and more of them through the cracks in a companys hand. Clamping down on piracy almost never restricts piracy. If anything it has a way of making developers and distributors into targets.
If the picture thats emerging is based on fact, Microsoft and Sony need to slow their roll. Accessibility is paramount for consoles, and if some of these measures are taken to extremes they could confound casual and hardcore players alike. As free-to-play, casual and social games up their profile in the industry every year, the focus should be on making games easier to access, not harder.

|Four High Profile Games In Danger Of Becoming Vaporware. (1) | Posted on April 14, 2012, 1:10 p.m.|
|Man, both FF Versus and The Last Guardian haven't had any info in so long no one even puts them on list for this year. |
The common name for these sorts of games is vaporware. A product that never releases, but also never really gets canceled. A popular example of a vaporware game used to be Duke Nukem Forever, until it finally released to less than stellar reviews over twelve years after it was originally announced. Join me as I list off games that just might become vaporware... Hopefully not though.
The Last Guardian
When Team ICO first started in the game design business they were a pretty niche studio. There was no way they were going to pull in Call of Duty types of sales numbers with a game like ICO. But apparently that wasn't that big of a deal for the small up and coming designers, as their release of Shadow of the Colossus cemented them in the world of top notch game design.
I've had this preordered for over two years now. I want more information!
Now, seven years after the release of SotC, they still don't have The Last Guardian ready for retailers. Other than a single trailer and a bit of behind the scenes videos that could be found on the Team ICO HD Collection disc, there hasn't been any new information.
One trailer in six years isn't enough. We need to know where The Last Guardian is if it has any hopes of not becoming vaporware.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII
Things have gotten rather silly with the Final Fantasy franchise. After the release of Final Fantasy XIII, the series became more fractured than it ever has before. There was Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, a rumored Final Fantasy XIII-3, Agito for the PSP (which dropped the XIII name when it released), and of course, the one game missing in action, Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Originally announced in 2006, the game has been in development for six long years.
You just wait. Final Fantasy 15 will be announced before this comes out
To give you an idea of why that is such a long wait in between games, Final Fantasy XIII was announced at around the same time, and then released three years later. Trailers, images, character bios, even a demo was released. In the six years since Versus, we've gotten a few grainy images and the press have gotten some extended video previews.
Half Life 3
Ah, Gabe Newell and his "Valve Time." A Valve game will get finished when it gets finished. That's all we ever get to know about a release date. To give you an idea about how ridiculous development times can be for Valve games, you need not look any further than their Wikipedia page. Team Fortress 2, the popular free to play shooter available to anyone with a Steam account was announced in 1999.
That guy is wearing a Half Life 3 shirt! That must mean its going to release soon...right?
Now with Half Life 2: Episode 2 being released five years ago, we've passed the original development time of the second game in the series. With no information about Half Life 3 except for one or two random files being found in different Valve games suggesting that it is in development, you have to wonder just how long will we be waiting? Could HL3 take longer than Team Fortress 2? Will it ever come out? I hope so...
Banjo Kazooie Threeie
Not exactly as high profile as the other games in the list, but come on. Its Banjo Kazooie. I know its a series that might have released before some of the people reading this got into gaming with the Playstation 3 or Xbox 360. But back in the Nintendo 64 days this was one of the bigger series released on the system. Then after Banjo Tooie, there was nothing for years...until Nut & Bolts was announced.

|What's worse Final Fantasy XIII or Final Fantasy VIII? *DO NOT SPOIL THE PLOTS* (23) | Posted on April 14, 2012, 12:41 p.m.|

|IGN gives Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition an 8.5 (23) | Posted on April 14, 2012, 12:32 p.m.|
|For Comparison of how inconsistent IGN is with their reviews. |
An elegant menu system and a huge amount of story content to dig into. Bugs and stability issues do exist, however.
Stunning environmental detail make exploring Skyrim all the more rewarding. Some character models and animations look unnatural.
An incredible soundtrack and great sound design help make Skyrim feel like a real place.
Though the up-close weapon combat is still awkward, customizing your character and conquering all Skyrim's challenges is consistently satisfying.
A game of staggering size and filled with content, so there's always a reason to return.
The Witcher 2 presents a unique and believable world, smeared with blood and grime.
Tearing and texture pop-in are occasional problems, but this is still an excellent-looking game.
The score is fitting, and good voice acting supports a charismatic script.
It's got one of the best sword combat systems around, but some other elements are finicky.
35 hours is a conservative estimate - importantly, you'll want to play to the end.
No one in their right mind would say the combat in Skyrim is better than the Witcher 2, the most explanation IGN gives is that it can be "Finicky". This is pathetic, and really shows the established big titles get a pass at large journalist.

|California GameStops Now Have To Put DLC Warnings On Used Games. (11) | Posted on April 11, 2012, 9:46 a.m.|
|It will be interesting to see if this affects used game sales numbers in California.|
|California GameStops Now Have To Put DLC Warnings On Used Games. (1) | Posted on April 11, 2012, 8:32 a.m.|
|Well it seems like the used game market will be under attack sooner than expected. Next generation is going to be hard on Gamestop if this continues. |
GameStop stores in California will now have to warn you when their used games come with one-time-use online passes or additional fees for downloadable content.
For the next two years, GameStop will be forced to put up signs both online and in California retail stores to warn that customers who buy used versions of games like Batman: Arkham City and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will have to pay for online codes to access the advertised "free DLC." This DLC is only free to customers who buy new copies of each game.
This is the result of a class-action settlement reached by the law firm Baron & Budd. Baron & Budd alleged that GameStop was misleading customers and attempting to maximize profits by buying used games at a fraction of their costs and jacking up their prices "without paying any royalties to video game publishers or developers."
"We are pleased that as a result of this lawsuit, we were able to obtain complete restitution for consumers, with actual money paid out to people who were harmed by GameStop's conduct," said Mark Pifko, Baron and Budd attorney and counsel in the lawsuit, in a press release.
"The in-store and online warnings are an important benefit under the settlement as well, because if GameStop discloses the truth to consumers, it is unlikely that they will be able to continue selling used copies of certain games for only $5 less than the price of a new copy. In fact, we already know that not long after the lawsuit was filed, GameStop lowered prices for used copies of many of the game titles identified in the lawsuit."
Baron & Budd also says customers will be able to recover "the additional $15 they would have been required to pay to access the downloadable content" in the form of checks and GameStop credit.
We've reached out to GameStop for comment and will update should we hear anything.
