GS News: Shorter wait to play Xbox One Games and NCAA Dumps EA
Play Xbox One games while they're installing, Forza 5 gets a free day one DLC, and Media Molecule wants more women game designers.
I Jess but I also like Shaun too. For the most part, I like the GS cast in its entirety.
Except for Tom. Still a little mad at him over the TLoU review but even MORE so when he failed to defend his position on that review during the spoilercast. Kind of nitpicking, I know; but I'll get over it.
Don't worry Shaun, you did a good job. It's just that you work at GameSpot.com, and this site just happens to attract a lot of people who flip when they see a girl that's even relatively hot. "Nerdgasms" as one guy put it.
All dumb stuff about MS aside, i bet the PS4's play while downloading feature won't always work because, well, it just won't. When the game is downloading obviously all the files aren't there. MS probably doesn't want to say that the Xbox One will be able to play a game while its downloading when they're not sure it'll work. Playing a game while its being installed off the disc works because the console can just preload some files off the disk and then continue installing the game
I think the last sports game I played was NBA JAM on SNES.... don't care to much for them personally. Don't let them fool you, Jess is really out because she's busy surfing on a great white, juggling koala bears, and playing the didgeridoo. Isn't that what Australians do with their free time?
Wow, you guys completely got wrong why the NCAA dropped EA. The NCAA didn't drop EA because EA was being sued too much, it's because the NCAA is facing lawsuits from numerous college athletes that didn't make a dime from having their likeness used in the NCAA series of video games (amongst other merchandise).
Shaun, when is the next lost between levels? That show is great! Nice work today aswell. I liked the slowly moving camera thing aswell!
PC, you're always in my heart.
Sony, you're always on my mind.
Nintendo, You're always my best friend.
Xbox, Get a fuck outta here.
All these comments about Shaun being hot... lol
Yet there was an uproar because men were eyeing up Jess? I'm not complaining, I just find it funny. >_<
(Although some comments go too far.)
He's pretty good at this but his constant smiling is freaking me out a bit. Its like those overly nice people in movies that kill you once you turn your back and eat your organs, assimilate you, or are from South Carolina or some other such thing.
Shaun is such a delicious piece of eye candy. And that silky smooth voice. Makes me wanna eat him up.
GS needs to use this fine specimen a lot more.
Shaun is too good at this -_-. Quit being so damn capable at things. All professional and unthreateningly good looking. Even to men. Makes me want to punch you in the face. Then instantly regret it. ( why did i do that.?you don't deserve that shaun)
Dammit Shaun,you just buttoned your shirt too high and what's up with the shirt beneath.Jess put herself more at ease in the videos you should do the same.
So what, the new xbox would probably take a lot longer to install the game than the ps4 because of its weaker hardware(I hear).
Why day one DLC? stupid f**kin' bull s**t, what's the matter, can't fit it onto the discs?
I don't give a s**t which gender makes games as long they're actually good games.
EA has been a disgrace for sports fans. All they do is milk the sh*t out of their franchises by delivering pretty much the SAME game every year with updated rosters and a very few new tweaks -_-
Hmmmmm..... Completely agree, more women should be involved in game creation. This may not only serve a creative purpose, but also encourage more females into gaming itself. This would Hopefully dilute the pool of remarks from horny teenage boys/virgins you tend to see in the GS news comments section.
Being able to play the game while downloading though kinda cool, not enough to get me to buy the console at launch, I eventually will get both consoles, but not till months afterward. I wanna be able to just walk in and buy one when I want one, and not have to wait in a stupid line.
@rawkstar007 Uuuggg...Tom never defends his position, he always nitpicks, and he always aggravates people. Let him have his opinion and just calm down, he said he really liked it, that his version of I LOVE IT!!
@Hobbes444 i agree with you to a point clearly pc owners have already had this feature and its not has good has they claim you still have to wait a while for enough data to be downloaded so that the game is good enough to play without it constantly sticking .so to cut a long story short if you have say a 25mb+ connection itll probably be pretty good
@keithkaotic Well, Shaun did it quite well... :D
@cgv5150You just denied what the article said then turned around and said the exact same thing. QUESTION: How does one go about bringing a lawsuit against someone else? ANSWER: By "suing" them smartguy. So in essence - " facing lawsuits from numerous college athletes" IS THE SAME AS (drum roll) - "being sued too much". Wow. Really dude?
I wish people would really think about what they're going to say before saying it. Gotta love this digital age.
@Kyrylo It's also listed under Forza Motorsport 5 which is equally unrelated. Even now?
@Kyrylo They are pushing the next gen war. Too many ps fanboys and us xbox guys going at it ridiculously.
@galiver666 PC! PC! PC! PC! PC! PC! PC!PC RULESSSSS!
@MasterTazo Hahahahaha :D
@Pawfalcon I agree, South Carolina people are scary. Gimme a psychopath any day of the week!
@Johny_47 Sammoth said it all pretty much. For one, Forza 5 has been done and was already sent off to start the disc stamping process so no, they can't just add it on the disc mid production. It's much easier to just have it as a quick download when you toss the game in for the first time. The dev's stated this a few times already.
80% of the games today require a download when you fire it up, some brand new games have day one patches ready to go before you even get home from the store, it sucks but it's been that way for a very long time. I have to laugh about the longer install times... ummm no. I can install a whole disc on my 360 faster than installing a downloaded game on the ps3. Not to mention how slow the psn network is as a whole. 6gb on the ps3 takes like half a day when I get it done and ready on the 360 in about an hour (no install time needed on downloads for the 360).
I hope that since sony is forcing psn+ (for the most part) that they upgrade the servers / services to speed it up a bit as it's always been a gripe of mine. Not saying psn+ is bad because it's not, it's a great deal and worth having for sure.
@Johny_47 LMAO both Optical drives are the same. Has nothing to do with the hardware you're talking about.
Day One DLC was because they had it in place for the always online until MS reversed it's policy. So they figured leave it open for FREE day one DLC. WTF is your problem ?
@SureBigBuster I agree, EA should reinvent football games. Add guns and RPG powers. Dialogue and meaningful story lines choices. An open world to explore. Challenging puzzles and platforming sections.
Then the game certainly would be different from year to year.
@Intellips Just because a woman developed a game doesn't mean more women will play games. It's not like they headline developer names on the game next to the dev company.
@davidsworld3 Should have bought online. I don't have to go anywhere.
CGV5150 said NCAA is being sued not the other way around so....Drum roll... not the same thing whether the article or the user is right or wrong i don't know but maybe you should follow your own example and "I wish people would really think about what they're going to say before saying it. Gotta love this digital age."
But women may offer a different creative perspective, or at least offer gaming alternatives that may be more attractive to women. Lets face it the industry is dominated by men, catering for an audience that is mainly male. Having more women develop games may lead to games that are more aligned to female tastes.
Games have evolved into another medium that conveys the human experience, having one gender dominate the medium means we are missing out on stories, themes, creativity told from another point of view. Imagine if only men wrote books, or made music. We would be missing out on an array of art delivered from the female perspective. I for one, am sick of the macho bro shooters that seem to dominate gaming nowadays.
Indeed, the male dominated gaming community is often embarrassing. Just look at the posts here when Jess reads the news. There is a misogynistic streak in the gaming community, that I think would be diluted if there were more women involved in this industry.
@Charon1st @askanison40 @cgv5150 Well, then he was wrong on both fronts b/c the NCAA is not being sued. EA IS the one being sued. It's public record. Granted, the NCAA are the principle witnesses in most of the cases, but the NCAA itself is not being sued. Again - LIKE I SAID - check yourself before you attempt to "school" someone. Especially if you have NO IDEA what you're talking about.
