Bungie Answers Your Destiny Questions – IGN First

IGN.com - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 11:00

Naturally, Destiny's big new world elicits a lot of questions. As does Bungie's new approach to first-person shooters in general. We thought we'd help get some answers, so we solicited your questions and sent them Bungie's way. Bungie's Eric "urk" Osborne was kind enough to answer them.

@CaramelRanger asks: How large are the "raids/dungeons" going to be?

The Raid team is very cagey with the details they want to share pre-launch. The most satisfying and rewarding aspects of the Raid require that we let you experience it fresh, so you can figure it out for yourself alongside a crew of your friends. They are easily the largest, most complex, and challenging single activity we have ever attempted to build. They’re designed to punish your for failure, and reward you for planning, cooperation, skill, and execution. Good luck!

$299 Android Gaming Tablet Reviewed

Slashdot.org - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 10:34
Vigile (99919) writes "Last week NVIDIA announced the SHIELD Tablet and SHIELD Controller, and reviews are finally appearing this morning. Based on the high performance Tegra K1 SoC that integrates 192 Kepler architecture CUDA cores, benchmarks reveal that that the SHIELD Tablet is basically unmatched by any other mobile device on the market when it comes to graphics performance — it is more than 2.5x the performance of the Apple A7 in some instances. With that power NVIDIA is able to showcase full OpenGL versions of games like Portal and Half-Life 2 running at 1080p locally on the 19:12 display or output to a TV in a "console mode." PC Perspective has impressions of that experience as well as using the NVIDIA Game Stream technology to play your PC games on the SHIELD Tablet and controller. To go even further down the rabbit hole, you can stream your PC games from your desktop to your tablet, output them to the TV in console mode, stream your game play to Twitch from the tablet while overlaying your image through the front facing camera AND record your sessions locally via ShadowPlay and using the Wi-Fi Direct powered controller to send and receive audio. It is incredibly impressive hardware but the question remains as to whether or not there is, or will be, a market for Android-based gaming devices, even those with the power and performance that NVIDIA has built."

How Gygax Lost Control of TSR and D&D

Slashdot.org - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 07:06
An anonymous reader writes "Sunday was the birthday of the late great Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons and Futurama guest star. With the fifth edition of D&D soon to come out at Gen Con this year, Jon Peterson, author of Playing at the World, has released a new piece to answer a historical question: how was it, back in 1985, that Gary was ousted from TSR and control of D&D was taken away from him? Drawn from board meeting minutes, stock certificates, letters, and other first-hand sources, it's not a quick read or a very cheery one, but it shows how the greatest success of hobby games of the 1980s fell apart and marginalized its most famous designer."

15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About BTTF

IGN.com - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 06:34

Back to the Future is one of the most beloved films in motion picture history. So-much-so that as well as knowing the plot back-to-front, fans also know the story behind the film. From Eric Stoltz initially playing the lead before being replaced by Michael J. Fox, to the latter having to fit filming around his Family Ties TV schedule so that he was something of a zombie by the end of the shoot. But what of the lesser-known behind-the-scenes stories?

If London's 'Secret Cinema' event ever actually happens, thousands will be heading to Hill Valley to revisit the film over the next few weeks, which inspired us to put together a list of more obscure facts about the flick: 15 things you (probably) didn’t know about Back to the Future.

PS4 System Software Update 1.75 Has Arrived

IGN.com - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 04:20

Sony has confirmed PS4 System Software Update 1.75 is now rolling out.

As we reported last week, this update introduces the ability for the console to play 3D Blu-Ray films.

The update marks the first time we've seen new features arrive on the console since April, when ShareFactory was introduced. The decision to announce the addition so suddenly may, in part, be due to Microsoft's confirmation 3D Blu-Ray support is heading to Xbox One.

Speaking to IGN ahead of the release of Crazy Taxi: City Rush on iOS and Android devices, Kenji Kanno admitted he's keen to see the series return to consoles like PS4 and Xbox One but it needs to be an evolution, and that's the part he's struggling with.

"I don’t know how old I would be when the next one came out, but there are some features I would like to add to new Crazy Taxi games, but I haven’t managed to figure out how to do it yet," he admitted. "This is the first time I’ve ever told anyone. The very, very first time. Ever.

New Details on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

IGN.com - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 03:26

The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth run at 60 frames per second and feature fully configurable control mapping along with more than four billion unique seeds, according to a post on the game’s official blog.

“You can literally set the buttons as you like,” writes Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez, the team working with the title's creator Edmund McMillen. “And we’re certain that you’ll change them around almost instantly. For example, on Vita, if you know you only play with analog movement and firing, then you can move all the vital inputs to the face buttons and not have to mess around with the shoulder buttons.”

Under the Dome: "Reconciliation" Review

IGN.com - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 23:03

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

Guys, I'm still laughing at the fact that someone took the time and resources to make, and hang, a giant banner that read "VOLUNTARY FOOD SHARE DRIVE." In the dome. For the food drive. Which no one needed a sign for.

Was anyone confused about where to drop off the food and therefore needed that sign? Because there was so much going on in town that day, event-wise, that there were competing large gatherings of people accepting canned goods?

That's it. This is the show, people.

The citizens of Chester's Mill are, for the most part, nondescript drips. They're "the mob." We're told their opinions, percentage-wise (half the town this, the other town that), and then we'll sometimes see it play out between two people we've never met before. One who wants one thing and the other who wants the opposite. Then they all fight amongst themselves because they exist as this sort of giant temperamental child that can easily - very easily - be swayed one way or the other. Kind of like Junior, but on a grander scale. So conveniently duped. And often duped, whenever the show needs them to be.

4 Things We Learned About Ant-Man at Comic-Con

IGN.com - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 22:42

This past weekend's Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con revealed a few key tidbits about their Edgar Wright-less Ant-Man movie. Here are the four key takeaways from their Hall H panel.

After months of rumors, it was confirmed by Marvel Studios boss and producer Kevin Feige and by the actress herself that Evangeline Lilly is indeed a member of the Ant-Man cast. The actress revealed during the Hall H panel that she plays Hope Pym, the daughter of Michael Douglas' Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man and inventor of the miniaturization superhero suit.

Douglas, however, referred to Lilly's character as Hope van Dyne, which clearly suggests she's the offspring of Pym and his wife, Wasp aka Janet van Dyne.
