id Software's John Carmack is mindful of the anger over Modern Warfare 2 dropping dedicated server support. That's why he's glad Infinity Ward is going first, because he plans to do the same thing with Rage.

"It's not cast in stone yet, but at this point no, we don't think we will have dedicated servers," he said, according to Variety. But he's glad "we won't have to be a pioneer on that. We'll see how it works out for everyone else."

News that Infinity Ward was dropping dedicated server support in favor of everyone playing online through its new matchmaking service IWNet touched, off, predictably, a petition-fueled backlash from a PC community that had long used dedicated servers to play Call of Duty games. Carmack, Variety said, indicated the felt the servers are a relic of PC gaming's early days.

Thats too bad, but this game looks sick. And best of all, even though its multiplat, it runs 60fps on PC/360, while PS3 version is 30fps.LOL

PostSubject: Walmart Confirms 360 Sale, More Cuts Coming (This will sell a lot of 360s)   Fri Nov 06, 2009 8:51 pm

Quote :
Walmart's official website today confirms the rumor we broke yesterday about one heck of a deal on the Xbox 360 Arcade.

Listed among the one day in-store specials for this Saturday, Nov. 7, is an Xbox 360 Arcade console for $199 that comes with a $100 gift card. Other deals include discounted TVs, a Blu-ray player, DVD player and laptop.

More interesting, though, is what our sources tell us about the sale.

This weekend's one-day sale is just the first of weekly sales that will be hitting Walmart in the lead up to the post Thanksgiving retail sales explosion known as Black Friday.

We're told that this is Walmart's attempt at pulling a little of the focus off that huge shopping day and trying to spread the wealth over the entire month. So look out for future deals, perhaps including more gaming price cuts.

Arcade and 100 dollar gift card= Win.

PostSubject: Fable III's New Concept Art Needs More Chimney Sweeps   Fri Nov 06, 2009 8:53 pm

Very nice concept art. I think as fable progresses through the iterations, it'll eventually hit the modern era.

PostSubject: Rumored Kameo 2 Killed To Make Room For Natal Projects   Fri Nov 06, 2009 8:55 pm

Quote :
Microsoft owned developer Rare won't be returning to the world of Kameo any time soon, thanks to the studio's shift toward multiple Project Natal titles, according to unnamed sources cited by CVG. Microsoft is reported to have canceled a sequel.

CVG's source "close to the platform holder" says that sales of action-adventure eyesore Kameo: Elements of Power are largely to blame for the decision to stop development on a follow-up. According to NPD data, sales of the original Xbox 360 launch title totaled a little more than 300,000, less than half the sales of launch peer Perfect Dark Zero, so that decision may have been a wise one.

(On the bright side, Kameo: Elements of Power sales over the course of four years outperformed two other Rare titles, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.)

But it appears that Microsoft's first-party needs for Project Natal software is taking precedent. Rare is said to be hard at work on a handful of unannounced games for the controller, now under the watchful eye of Microsoft Game Studios creative director Peter Molyneux.

So, that means natal is going to huge. I expect a lot of media/hype before launch and many launch titles.

PostSubject: Rare Hopes To Evolve The FPS Genre With Project Natal   Fri Nov 06, 2009 8:55 pm

Quote :
Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata developer Rare has made some important contributions to the first person shooter genre, a space it hasn't visited since Perfect Dark Zero hit the Xbox 360 in 2005. That may change, thanks to Project Natal.

Rare's Mark Betteridge tells MCV, as part of a feature on the first-person shooter, that the company's "sights are trained on Natal." Betteridge calls the Xbox 360's motion and voice controller a "a great opportunity to break new ground with content and gameplay."

Rare has been said by owner Microsoft to be "intimately involved with Project Natal in a number of different dimensions," according to soon to be ex-Microsoft VP Shane Kim. The developer was reported to be staffing up in anticipation of the Natal launch in 2010. Hopefully, that will help give them the identity that Peter Molyneux thinks they so desperately need.

"[Project Natal is] also an opportunity to exercise some genre evolution," Betteridge says, "so hopefully we'll be able to develop something on that front."

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? If the answer is a first person shooter/boxing game based on the adventures of Killer Instinct's T.J. Combo, than it sounds like we are.

Update: Microsoft wants to "clear up the confusion around this topic," saying that Betteridge's quote from MCV was "misconstrued."

"We have not announced an FPS Natal game nor any other specifics about Rare's projects in development," reads a statement from Microsoft. "Rare is currently working on several projects, the details of which will be announced at a later date."
