1:00 Ubisoft Sucks!
Do any of you find your opinion of a game partly affected by the kinds communities you see forming around the game and the kinds of people the game seems to attract? Do you think it’s fair to allow the kinds of communities the game inspires to affect your judgement on that game?
My question can be applied to game series and franchises, and other types of media besides games.
How do you podcast with boxing gloves on?
More seriously, several youtube commentators (TotalBiscut, Super Bunnyhop, etc.) have mentioned having a better experience when gaming at 60 or even 120 fps vs. a fixed 30 fps. Are you able to notice any kinesthetic difference between these standards? Does it even matter for the types of games that you play?
Here is the SuperBunnyHop episode on this topic. Highly recommended:
56:00 PAX sells out in nine minutes.
So it looks like I won’t make it to PAX East again this year. Shame.
