Thursday, 28 October 2010
Holidays and special events always take the already low prices on Steam and drive them through the floor. Expect some zombie, ghost and horror based games to be great deals right now, Left 4 Dead one or two are both worth picking up anytime, better now that they are on sale. Also on sale is TF2, you should own this, Ghostbusters is under $10 as well, and BioShock is under 5 bucks, that's ridiculous. If you need any background on these games, check out the info at Digitally Distributed Gamer, there's some good shit there.

Other than no Klobb reference, short female scientist and the point down is reloading, these guys hit the nail with their N64 Bond 007 skit.

New Metroid Game; Metroid: Other M

Metroid and Super Metroid were some of the best games of their times, and while the Prime series has gained a strong following, their departure in gameplay style led them in the same direction as the Sonic series when it tried to make the transition to 3D. It's good, just not good enough. The newest Metroid game, titled "Metroid: Other M" was announced last year and just released their 2nd gameplay trailer yesterday. It looks like it has more of a grounding in the original style, and apparently has both 2D and #d gameplay elements. Should be interesting to see how this pans out.

Interesting License Issues with H.264

I know a lot of you guys are film makers, hobbyists or aspiring directors, so this little piece of info about the use of H.264 and the legal use of its license might interest you.

From this article:
A lot of commercial software comes with H.264 encoders and decoders, and some computers arrive with this software preinstalled. This leads a lot of people to believe that they can legally view and create H.264 videos for whatever purpose they like. Unfortunately for them, it ainít so.

In the last while H.264 has become standard use for web video, the way DivX was a few years ago, and I'm sure there will be something new in the codec world in the next 2 years that will replace this, as is pointed out in this Slashdot article, but I thought you still might like to know the implications of encoding your video with H.264 for now.

Via ESPN: When EA Sports community manager Alain Quinto tweeted back in December that EA execs were preparing to announce a new game, the rumors and speculation spiraled out of control. Was EA going to steal the WWE license from THQ? Is "MVP Baseball" coming back? Is a new sport like lacrosse finally going to break through with an NCAA-licensed game? To make it simple, no, no and no.Instead, sources confirmed to ESPN that the new title is actually one of the all-time classics coming back to consoles as EA Sports has acquired the rights from the NBA to deliver an updated version of "NBA Jam" that will ship to retail exclusively for the Wii.

Check out the full article on ESPN for some secret info on the oldschool Jam, like why the Pistons beat the Bulls usually, or listen to me get burned over NBA Jam vs NBA Jam:TE on a Nerdballoon podcast.
