Battlefield 3 beta – “Hundreds” of changes from alpha, day one patches likely

by on Sep.06, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

Just like a tender leg testing the water, Battlefield 3’s beta release will be dangling itself into the pit of criticism. DICE have already confirmed that they will be making literally “hundreds” of changes to the game so far.

So far, there has been no confirmation on the exact date of the beta release apart from “September”. The final game will be set for release towards the end of October, so that gives around a month for DICE to make any last minute adjustments.

Doom 4 single-player locked at 30fps

by on Aug.23, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

Poor frame rate in games these days is like hearing someone suffering from the plague. You just don’t hear about it anymore and you think that game developers would avoid having the FPS dive below anything that doesn’t flow as fast as reality. Well, the new Doom game looks to sacrifice its single-player frame rate slightly in favour of better looking gameplay.

by on Aug.11, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

Just like an awesome band who make the one amazing album and don’t take the risk with the difficult second one, Australian developer Team Bondi are giving in its gun and badge. So maybe we’ll be assigning the case of the LA Noire sequel to another developer, eh?

Skyrim director ‘couldn’t care less’ about 3D

by on Jul.23, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

Yet again, there’s more talk about whether that third dimension in gaming visuals will make all the difference. The debate has been split in two with a big knife. A knife that is three dimensional. Not even one of the most eagerly awaited RPGs will succumb to a bit of thickening in the graphics department.

Crystal Dynamics planning new IP after Tomb Raider reboot

by on Jul.13, 2011, under News, That VideoGame Blog

That Lara Croft bird, she’s had a long innings hasn’t she? Of course she has been around the underground for a while and done just about every single thing that Indiana Jones wouldn’t touch with a mile long whip, but isn’t it time we move here aside for some new blood?

If your gaming world is the equivalent to the size of a large European country with varied terrain, then you might as well make room on your shelf for some kind of an award.

Even videogames have jumped on board the eye-popping band wagon with 3D games on the Nintendo 3DS and Sony’s PlayStation 3 getting a similar treatment. But it could look like Microsoft will be the only ones give a sceptical flat glance at this new fad.
