PSO on Switch

“I have said over time I’d like to take Game Pass everywhere. I saw somebody joke I’d put Game Pass on the toaster if I could – I don’t know about that. We’re focused on the streaming side, at least, on Android, just because in some ways it’s the hardest for us because it’s so diverse in terms of the number of devices.

I love the role that Nintendo plays in the industry. I love the fact that Minecraft Dungeons was announced there and we have really good relationships with them, and obviously Banjo in Smash. But that platform is different enough from an Xbox platform that it’s not trivial for us just to say, ‘Okay, all those games would run there’. So then you’re like, ‘Okay, are we gonna stream the games to there?’ I love what Switch is, but the opportunity globally to focus on an Android platform is just such a natural first move for us. And frankly, it will take us quite a while to work through that, so that’s the focus for us right now. But I want to have the best console experience because of what it gives you. I want you to be sitting on the couch with an amazing experience – it sounds great, I have access to any game that I want to play, and if I want to take that while I’m on the go, I think the Switch is a really cool platform for that. It’s just that in the near-term, it’s kind of hard for us to prioritize different than we are today.”

RJS Show Notes – Are Single player games too long? PS5 is coming, Xbox One SAD, Epic Games Store.

Story 1

Story 2

In an interview with Wired Mark Cerny discussed some of the expected features of the PS5.

Biggest takeaways from this (won’t be 2019)

Will support Ray Tracing (Explain what it is) Cerny says its also useful for audio as well.


“If you wanted to run tests to see if the player can hear certain audio sources or if the enemies can hear the players’ footsteps, ray tracing is useful for that,” he says. “It’s all the same thing as taking a ray through the environment.”

Wired

Speaking of audio PS5 will have a custom audio chip for 3D audio

The PS5 will have an SSD 5 which will significantly improve load times, in addition this will allow a game world to be rendered much faster, which means that developers can add more objects to the world to make it feel more alive.

PS5 will support 8K (does this mean native 8K or upscaled?)

Story 3

The Xbox One SAD has a price

Story 4

Randy Pitchford explains his support for the Epic Games Store

Biggest takeaways


Epic has published a near term road map. This road map includes a look into things they are committing to. If I were a betting man, I would expect that there are more things that happen than what they are committing to. We also must acknowledge that Borderlands 3 does not exist *today* but rather it will exist in September. The store will be different when the game launches. It will become a boon to their store if they bring sufficient features to make the customer experience great for us. Epic will suffer (again) if, by the time Borderlands 3 launches, the customer experience is not good enough.

Randy Pitchford


From a track record point of view, my expectation is that Epic’s investment in technology will outpace Valve’s substantially. When we look back at Steam in five or ten years, it may look like a dying store and other, competitive stores, will be the place to be.

Randy Pitchford


The competitive store that happens to be the leader in 10 years may not be Epic’s store, but it probably won’t be Valve’s and Epic’s moves right now are opening the door and paving the way for a vibrant competitive economy. Competition in stores is going to be absolutely best for consumers and probably good for developers and publishers as well. The stores that tend to win are the stores that offer the best to their customers. It’s very difficult for customer interest to be king with one store.

Randy Pitchford


Now there is an external force that is real. This external force, the Epic store, is a really significant threat to Steam. Steam *must* adapt or it will perish. Almost immediately, we saw Steam crumble it’s previously unwavering stance on revenue share. Holy shit! That’s a miracle. I think the folks at Valve are really smart and really great and they are also, probably, starting to redirect investment into their store. If Valve is smart, and they are, they should preemptively maneuver as many resources as possible towards improving the store and preparing for Epic’s inevitable challenge to Steam from a features point of view.

Randy Pitchford


And so we’re going to swallow the Epic Game Store pill with Borderlands 3. And some of you guys are going to hate it and scream bloody murder and you’ll even blame me, personally, for it. And you can bitch and moan and brigade and stalk my shit, but at the end of the day when we look back at this moment we’ll realize that this was the moment where the digital stores on PC became unmonopolized. And we’re all going to look back and see how change happened and how costs for developers and publishers to be on stores went down and how that value was passed on to the customers.

How Stadia could end game piracy –

Music piracy still happens but not like it was in the days of Napster.

Google I/O 2019 is coming and Stadia is on the ticket. (Stadia Streaming Tech: A Deep Dive May 7th at 3pm) (Large Scale Multiplayer Gaming with Open Source May 8 10:30) (What’s New in Gaming at Google May 7th 2pm)

Story 2

Xbox executive says Google doesn’t have the content for Stadia’s push

Big takeaways Mike Nicols

“Emerging competitors like Google have a cloud infrastructure, a community with YouTube, but they don’t have the content,”

But they do have Phil Harrison industry veteran with 30 years of experience.

Harrison being interviewed by Polygon said “Don’t read too much into why so-and-so was there and why so-and-so wasn’t there,” “We’ve had deep conversations over a number of years now. We’ve shipped over a hundred development kits already. We’ve got thousands of creatives already underway. So you’ll see a pretty amazing lineup come June.”

Remilore for Switch, PS4 and Xbox One released

RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore has released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a Steam version coming soon. An all-new hack-and-slash action game, RemiLore follows the journey of an ordinary schoolgirl named Remi and a supreme magic book named Lore as they battle their way through the anime-inspired world of Ragnoah.

Remilore

In RemiLore, players can defeat enemies with a variety of powerful melee and magical ranged attacks, both of which can change dramatically whenever Remi equips any of over 200 different fun and fantastic weapons. All of the enchanting action in the game features rich HD visuals and dramatic lighting effects to enhance the beauty of Ragnoah’s four distinct regions.

My First Look

RemiLore features an in-depth upgrade system for spells, weapons and player skills. A variety of unlocked and unlockable gameplay options are offered, including:

  • Story Mode 1—Single-player main storyline starring Remi and Lore
  • Story Mode 2—Alternate storyline starring Choux and Lore
  • Co-op Mode—Two players team up and battle together
  • One Coin Clear—Permadeath mode
  • Wildcard Spell—Lore’s ultimate spell is replaced by a random one
  • Wildcard Weapon—Remi’s weapon is swapped randomly after an enemy is defeated
  • Power House—Increased attack power, but attack speed is slower
  • Sugar Rush—Dash gauge recharges faster, but attacks deal less damage
  • Boss Rush—Fight every boss in order, with no levels in between
  • Custom Loadout—Select any unlocked weapon and spell
  • Hard Mode—More difficult than Normal Mode
  • Nightmare Mode—One hit means game over
  • Tutorial—Learn how to play the game

RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is rated E10+ by the ESRB and is available now as a digital download on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for $39.99 MSRP. A Steam version will be releasing soon. The launch edition of the physical version on Nintendo Switch includes a bonus instruction booklet and RemiLore-themed microfiber cleaning cloth.
