This year at Gamescom, we decided it would be nice to try to record a podcast so we can give you our impressions day by day. After a tiring first day yesterday, we found a bit of time to talk about the Microsoft Media Briefing and the showcase which was taking place right after. Blim, dark10x and I gathered around the dinner table to discuss what we saw (the conference, private presentations) and what we played. We even got to talk to some indie developers, so if you want to find out what we have to say and you don't mind chaos, download the mp3 and let us know if you want the second part. We should be able to record it tonight and put it up tomorrow. Because the two mikes we're using aren't exactly the same quality, we apologize if Blim doesn't sound as good as he should.
Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (49 minutes ago)
@jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (1 Hour ago)
Ultimates do drive big plays. Don't think it makes everyone Seagull. (1 Hour ago)
I've played a ton of Halo too. Just not Halo 5 because I'm not a masochist. (1 Hour ago)
@Tiz: "Individual skill" still drives top players to become top players in OW. The team with the better comp *and* better players is going to win. (1 Hour ago)
@Tiz: Eh.. "more dependant on individual skill" is one way to look at it. (1 Hour ago)
@droezelke: it's awesome that one of the greatest minds in game development is given funding and respect. And using a hardware specific engine for his new game suggests he'll be a Sony 1st party dev. (1 Hour ago)
