The Sonic Boom topic on CryEngine 3 is rather misleading.  The one thing that the engine couldn't handle was split screen rendering for multiplayer.

It sort of is, sort of isn't. Split screen rendering is demanding and Cryengine couldn't do it before. So technically yes they had to enhance the engine for it to work.

They had to implement split screen rendering.  It's not like it was beyond what the engine was capable of producing, it just wasn't a feature.  The article implies that CryEngine couldn't cope with what the WiiU is capable of, but such is not the fact.  Having read it I find it to be a very biased article, of which the goal is to show that the WiiU is capable of some stuff that for example PS3 and X360 are not.  It seems to me to be more of an issue of no developer having created a split screen game with the engine before, and the engine simply not providing a cookycutter solution to do so.

One, you have no proof of that and two: Semantics.

"Well, it was the one thing the CryEngine is missing as a native feature: split-screen. the ability for the engine to render two images at the same time on the television screen and on the Wii U's gamepad."

Cryengine did not do split screen rendering, BRB needed it for Sonic Boom so had to modify and enhance the engine, so it could do it. The article title is:

~~Sonic Boom Required An Enhanced Version Of Cryengine

And it did require an enhanced version, for split screen, because it didn't support that feature.

Split screen rendering is more intensive, PS3 and 360 likely couldn't output a 720p + 480p image to a separate source like the Wii U can. If it can please pony up the examples. And there is no indication that Cryengine could do split screen rendering on 360 or PS3, we haven't seen it, we won't see it so that question is redundant.

I don't disagree with you on the article bias though, William Usher the writer is a huge Sony and Nintendo Fan and rags on the Xbox One repeatedly for fun. Reading his articles are sometimes the highlight of my day. We need more blatantly partisan, but often funny and creative writers on the net, instead of a bunch of characterless fanboys pretending to be professional on most other gaming sites.

I am in that store that has a ton of old games. Time to ask if you guys have head of some of these weird ass games.

Anyone play eternal Ring for PS2. The tag like is "who said fantasies had to be final?" Oh man this has to be good just cause of that . I see you fight dinosaurs.

how about cold winter on ps2. "No tux. No license. No mercy ." Yeah! "Battle intel legend enemies who hide behind cover and call for backup!" Wow! Lolol.

We need more blatantly partisan, but often funny and creative writers on the net, instead of a bunch of characterless fanboys pretending to be professional on most other gaming sites.  

Semantics?  To enhance: to raise to a higher degree, to magnify, to intensify.  Cryengine can do 1080p 120Hz with a bunch of effects enabled the WiiU could only dream of, which, to me, is beyond 720p+480p, regardless of the fact if you're rendering one or 2 viewpoints.  Perhaps it is something PS3 or X360 couldn't pull off, but really, that's besides the point.

They did not have to enhance their engine, they needed to implement a feature.

And if you read the whole article, it is beyond doubt that the author is twisting the facts to make it seem as if the WiiU has some secret powers that nobody knows of that will now be tapped into.  You don't prove anything by quoting the few morsels that seem rather objective when taken out of their context.

Eternal Ring is from From Software. It's a King's Field of sorts, or one of the Grandparents of Dark Souls.

So. I am playing an RPG about High School-age students dating and having babies with multiple partners, taking those babies into battles with you in a 3D Persona style dungeon. Where old men speak fondly of firm teenage breasts. Where young girls talk about how their breasts feel and how the shape and size of them attract boys to them in an almost erotic style. Where teachers routinely hit on their students. Where there's soft-core, suggestive cut-scenes and the touch screen is used to, well, touch the young girls over strategic parts of their bodies. You literally play God's Gift to women and all the guys in your school constantly tell you how jealous they are of your prowess and often try to spy on you "mating" with all these girls.

God Bless you, Japan, God Bless you, Atlus! Ridiculously fucking fantastic!!  Nyaa

NPD MARCH!

PS4 beat Xbox One!!!!!! LOL

PS4 outsold Xbox One, no firm number yet.

Xbox One 311k


Xbox 360 111k

vjumf7S.jpg

Its over, the war is done. PS4 won. Wow on Titanfall month the Xbox lost, lol.

Still 5 million One’s sold is really good, two healthy consoles this gen will be fine.

I dont know what to make of MGS under DS2, great for DS2 of course but not that good for MGS. I hope its cause people that didnt want to pay for a short game didn’t buy it rather than no one cares for MGS anymore.

Pretty sure I have both of those.

On Microsoft's Titan Fall, yeah that's pretty amazing. Lots of sweaty palms over there right now. Especially since the 360 Titanfall is apparently just as good (better metacritic).

I dreamt last night I buoght the 360 version of Titanfall (and found a copy of Killzone for $19).

Something that could be potentially --VERY-- cool, but I feel kinda scummy talking about it because it was told to me in confidence. A Private Client person I deal with at Chase Bank has become very chummy with me lately, so much so, he's actually been telling me information he shouldn't, but knew I would find really cool. The tellers have been trying to get this one particular woman to sit with him so he could have her bring her assets to the bank and he could invest and manage all of her needs for her... One of her "everyday spending" checking accounts has 600k, just sitting in it. When he pointed her out to me, there was something incredibly familiar about her... We don't know if it is the case or not, but her family name is Yamauchi!

We're talking spitting image! If I find out if it's true or not, I'll let you know! It's like encountering royalty!  Nyaa

I'll be curious to see what Nintendo has to spin for the NPDs when they release their press releases tomorrow. Unless I'm forgetting something I don't think they had any big releases for either system. NOt sure if they have any kind of silver lining to talk about.

I read a review about it that made me curious enough to check it out. Your feedback though makes me worried that if I play it Chris Hansen will walk into my kitchen and tell me to have a seat.
