I've finally gotten after a few weeks of delay my shipment of three 360 games for my japanese system. Let's start with Bullet Witch, a game developed by Cavia and it shows. You know something's wrong when the very first playable scene of a game is already full of slowdowns. The game isn't ugly, far from it in fact with some cool lighting effect, but it's full of graphical glitches, especially the shadows. The gameplay isn't great either, but not totally bad too. It's just more difficult that it should be to get the ennemies in the center of the visor, and it's usually simpler to just go straight to them than to strafe around. Not a completely bad game, not a good one, just very average.
For some reason it was very difficult to encode this video with a correct bitrate, so I had to cut the 720p version more than I usually do. It only shows the gameplay part, without the prerendered cutscene.

Gears 4 started out REALLY disappointing, but once you meet a certain someone it really picks up the pace and I'm having a blast. Even played coop w/ an Xbox One player (I'm on PC) Good work MSFT (3 Hours ago)

@GriftGFX: Gonna go eat lunch now. Thanks for the chat. It's always great to learn more about technology and its potential. I just wish there were any articles on the subject I could find. (12 Hours ago)

Then you start getting into proprietary software hell and potentially preventing other developers from writing innovative software solutions themselves. It's a WEIRD idea. (12 Hours ago)
