One thing I don’t get is the surprise about the demo removal. Most, if not all, of my favorite demos from early PS3 days are no longer available on PSN - these things are there for a limited time, and once contract runs out, they’re down. Stuff like End War or Red Alert 3 for PS3 had their demos disappear really,… » 4/26/15 6:00pm 29 minutes ago

Umm. Early? I’m currently playing that Shaolin guy or whatever, the one from the special squad. Just had the fights in his past. I kinda thought that I was about halfway through the game, but I’m yet to see the moment in this article. » 4/21/15 6:01pm Tuesday 6:01pm

But why would you ever excercise for 6-7 days a week? That sounds rather insane unless you’re doing some sports. I realized 3 days to be the perfect amount before I even started to go seriously - you get 1 day off twice, and then the weekend off for complete relaxing. » 4/21/15 1:07am Tuesday 1:07am

It looks pretty good, but photo coming to life? “Achieved the effect”? It honestly looks like normal video to me, with everything moving and all. There are much better videos in this aspect out there, that achieve actual partial movement with CGI. » 4/20/15 4:23am 4/20/15 4:23am

Looking at reviews of that thing, it doesn’t seem to do anything if you’re smart enough to shut down any software that eats up resources by yourself. I remember trying different software of this kind back in my first laptop days with Windows XP, and even though my hardware sucked ass, no “boosting” software managed to… » 4/19/15 8:24am 4/19/15 8:24am

Reminds me of the computer-assisted tournaments in The Peace War by Vernor Vinge. There, in the not so distant future, there were 2 kind of players on a tournament - ones assisted, and ones unassisted. Needless to say, unassisted never got anywhere close to the winning positions. » 4/16/15 2:09am 4/16/15 2:09am

I wonder, am I the only one to find the story mode here to be INSANELY difficult? I’m playing on Hard (even though I set pretty much every game I play to the hardest setting, which is Very Hard here), and it’s bloody awful. Took me a solid 20 minutes to beat every enemy so far, and I just got to chapter 2. It… » 4/14/15 4:36pm 4/14/15 4:36pm

I really don’t see how it is a “bump” at all. Next-gen consoles provided improved visuals when there were no options other than outdated PS3/360 visuals, while PC simply provides an option, as with absolutely any other game ever. You get basically the same visuals but higher resolution textures, with options for… » 4/14/15 3:48am 4/14/15 3:48am
