Since I have been severely cutting back on posts over the past few months I’ve decided to try something a bit different by setting up the official Galactic Pillow YouTube Channel. Although both current gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) have streaming/sharing video capabilities built-in I’ve really not been impressed by the overall image quality. Likewise, the screenshot feature for the PS4 results in less-than-desirable shots and the good old Xbox One doesn’t yet even have this functionality. Therefore, on a whim, I went out and got myself an Elgato Game Capture HD device so that I could kill two birds with one stone by recording high quality video and for taking much better screenshots from both consoles.
This is a story that keeps on giving so once again we’ve got news via other sources that Roberto Orci, the original director and screenwriter of Star Trek 3 (2016) who, vacated the captain’s chair a few weeks ago, also has apparently left the writing process as well. About the only hat he has left, though it is still a big one, is being one of the film’s producers.
I realize that I’m a bit late with this post considering a ton of other sites have let their own tips and tricks be known but I figured that I like the game enough to add my two cents. Therefore, here are some of my thoughts about Dragon Age Inquisition for those who are just about to start their first single-player campaign.
I was too lazy to report a few weeks ago that Bob Orci had left the director’s chair for the upcoming Star Trek 3 due to unknown circumstances. Since then Hollywood has been abuzz as to who would be his replacement with names such as Duncan Jones and Rupert Wyatt bandied about. Now, according to Deadline and other websites it looks as if Paramount has found their man.
Crimson Dragon had such a long development cycle that it is a wonder that the final product was even released. The game initially started as an Xbox Live Arcade Kinect title for the Xbox 360 but eventually morphed into an Xbox One digital launch title that dispensed with Kinect altogether in favour of the traditional control pad. Many have deemed the game the spiritual successor to Sega’s cult favorite Panzer Dragoon franchise and, at first glance, this would seem to be true as the title features very similar art design seen through the environments and especially the dragons. Still, will what worked for Panzer Dragoon all those years ago on the Sega Saturn still apply for modern audiences?
Blood Knights is undeniably a B-budget title that doesn’t make any pretensions to be otherwise, yet the entire package is so decidedly sub-par with robotic animation, muddy textures, awful voice acting and brain-dead AI that it makes the game nigh unplayable. About the only positive comment one can make is that the game indeed boots and doesn’t crash but that’s incredibly faint praise.
