this looks great in an ideal world where you have a tight collection of friends and one is eager to be restricted to the tablet... but I cant see it working that well with randoms who don't really work well together at the best of times, rather race through a level.

I wonder if codes for these game apps will only come in the box and be linked to your games account.. or if you can share them with friends who don't own the game. I cant see them selling the app completely separate, or somebody who doesn't own the game shelling out for just the app.

I also wonder if the only way you can use the app is with a separate account. So you couldn't for example play the game whilst multi tasking with the tablet. And will you need an xboxlive/psn+ account to enter into games when using the app?

So many questions...

still psyched for this...not bothered about all this tablet intergration in games though. seems like a gimmick that'll fade away pretty quick sharp. just seems like some futile attempt to draw in the ios casual crowd...

I have the smartglass app that works very well right now, but there are just no support for it in-game. I could see x1 using the smartglass for cases such as this. I'm sure ps will have a similar contending app as well.

Exactly.
Will wait for the next showing for proper gameplay footage/trailer.

I am super excited for this game. Definitely on my top 5 list

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (15 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (16 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (16 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (17 Hours ago)
