You may remember Mike from my horrible attempt at a British accent, or from his contributions to the comments and notepad. Well, Mike has teamed up with his pal Alex, and they have put together quite a good gaming podcast. Go check it out!
I have put together a few short episodes and am looking for a new hosting solution so I can post em up. We’ll be using a new segment-based format for the shows, since we just couldn’t make it happen as a group show. The first one up is on Arma 2 & Operation Arrowhead. I’ll be covering Breach soon as well. Look for updates soon.
This, folks, is one broken game. I couldn’t get anywhere in the interface without a system crash. The Steam forums are full of people with the same issue. Here’s hoping for a patch.
One day after the horrible release, word is spreading that the studio responsible for AA3 has been closed, and all employees laid off. I’m not kidding. Really, I’m not. Who’s gonna fix it now?
This is video taken from a mission created with the ingame mission editor. It doesn’t look like a particularly fun mission, but it shows the way the game really lets you feel like you are part of a much larger conflict. I’m really impressed. I don’t think my PC is up to the task though, as I’m running an older dual 3.2 ghz with a Nvidia 9800GT. I think that meets the minimums, but a game like this lives and dies by it’s ability to immerse the player, so 20 frames per second aint gonna cut it. We’ll see what people have to say about ArmA 2 performance once it’s out next week.
Maybe, just maybe. I’ll be playing some AA3 next week, and I might just try and put a podcast together. Stay tuned.
I’m sayin’ wow about these. Looky HERE.
A few weeks ago, I set up a gaming PC for my kids, so they don’t wreck my 360 when playing LEGO Indiana Jones and the upcoming LEGO Batman. I have it hooked up to a 36″ LCD TV in one of our living rooms. I’m using Pinnacle Gaming Profiler to allow a 360 gamepad to control windows, launch programs, and control emulators. There’s just one problem though – I want to play some of my games on it now and then, and they just are not the same when using a gamepad.
Do any of you guys do any “couch” PC gaming? If so, how do you set up your mouse and keyboard?
