Tom the Iron Man's Wall
Just got a fantastic DM from a fantastic company about "a thing"I'm afraid I cannot say anything else at the moment ;D
It would appear that the notifications for the site are back to running in real time. I've got a lot of backlogged content to post!
Just checked out XCOM on iOS. WOW, the thing SCREAMS on my iPhone 5 under iOS 7. I am so very happy to be playing a legit XCOM game in almost 15 years. Now that I'm gainfully employed again, I should be able to get the 360 version very soon for real-low-cheap and get the expansion just in time!
I just saw video of Mighty Number 9 running in Unreal Engine 3, and it's everything I wished the art style for Mega Man 9 and 10 was. I'm damn excited.
Shantae's Kickstarter has been funded with 10 days to spare! Time to work on those stretch goals with the time that is left!
Finished AVGN on "Old School" and then unlocked "Hard as Balls" which gives you a two-tone grey and black Zapper, looks great but I totally failed! I gotta get better and memorizing stuff.....or perhaps I was suffering for fatigue. I decided to keep playing after the credits rolls. Probably not the smartest thing to do! Tomorrow is always another day!
I just finished streaming AVGN Adventures and what an incredible ride it was. Thank you to all the g1s who came out there and watched with me. It was positivelyi incredible and everyone (whether you're a fan of James' work or not) should check it out, because at it's core it is a very fine "NES-Hard" platformer that really does make you feel like you just conquered the world with every level you beat. The best part is that I may have finished it but there is more to do, Cameos everywhere and a harder difficutly to conquer. It will be done, but for now, I must sleep. Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures gets a 10 out of 5, go buy it. Oh yeah in case if you were wondering, I approve of this.
I heard this all second-hand, but that I didn't expect to hear in the slightest: all the games played at EVO 2014 will be played on Xbox 360. Here's hoping the patches we've been waiting for on a variety of fighters will finally be made available.....Guilty Gear.....Skullgirls......3rd Strike.........I'm looking at you!
For those of you who didn't make it to Liberty City Rumble last night, highlights will be happening. Two words - Flaming SUV.
So a very credible leak has been given to Machinima about the PS4 supposedly having HDCP over HDMI...which means no local captures and anyone that is caught posting PS4 gameplay footage runs the legal risk of posting copywritten material. Yep, not even kidding. I don't know how or why it didn't occur to me but those HDCP strippers for the PS3 to get the video over HDMI, yep, that can get you in all sorts of legal trouble if you post any recorded footage using that online. It's not like I was rushing to get a PS4 at launch (hell unless Metal Gear goes exclusive like it did for MGS4, I doubt I will) but this certainly puts websites like ScrewAttack in a difficult position. It isn't confirmed if the dev kits reviewers will receive will have unencrypted HDMI or not as the developers themselves don't even know according to this leaker. Now the system is a couple months from launch and it is easy to speculate wildly but Machinima stands to lose a lot if this is true and I doubt they would have reported it if they didn't feel it was credible. Not only is it going to effect the big channels like them, but what about the little guys that stream that don’t want to use the built in service, that have paid subscriptions to XSplit/Wirecast, that use those programs will all those extra bells and whistle that the system itself cannot do. What about the indie YouTubers? What about ScrewAttack? That would be pretty lame to have launch day come and have nothing but written reviews for games all because Sony continues to have a copywritten lock on gameplay footage. Nintendo is giving us a hard time to get the content on YouTube, Sony isn’t even letting us get it off the system. Oh the irony that a hardware technology company is caught in the dark ages of not allowing their system to dynamically manage HDCP where their esteemed competitors, a software company and what was a toy company do. What a crazy techno world we live in. This also of course raises concerns about the VitaTV that I was so jazzed about. If it has HDCP over HDMI, half the reason why I want the damn thing is already thrown out the window. If I cannot stream and capture footage of the games off of it, then it almost doesn’t justify the price to play the original games I have on my TV. I know that sounds silly, but it’s what I’m about. I am at a point in my life where I don’t need a dedicated handheld device outside of my iPhone (obviously a 3DS comes with me for conventions). Sony better address this soon otherwise the content production community will have a lot to say that won’t be doing Sony any good.
It's done, finally, it's seriously been like 80 hours of work across two months but Craig vs Mike Tyson is finished and exported to YouTube right now. It will be posted here on ScrewAttack SOON!
SAFETY FIRST IS BACK! SUPER SAFETY FIRST! :D :D :D :D Excuse me while I take my Safety Suit to the dry clearners.
Just saw the 1st half of the Top 20 N64 games, if Resident Evil 2 isn't in the Top 10 (if not number 1) I'll be very surprised. That game was a technological marvel.
The PS Vita TV is a thing, finally. The price is right, all I need is confirmation as to whether it does HDCP over HDMI during gameplay and I'll be getting one as soon as it hits the USA.
Being so inspired after watching Nick's stream of Rayman Legends (followed by the shenanigans on Out of the Box the next day), I finally busted out my copy of Rayman Origins for 360. It is simply best described as a big slice of happy. It is a splendid and while I am a year late to the party on this, if you haven't purchased it, you should be able to get it for real-low-cheap on Amazon by now. It was the 2011 Iron Man of Gaming for a reason, and wow oh wow it is GRAND.
