CoD Created as 'A Little Bit' of an F-You at EA - briefly
(hx) 02:55 AM EDT - Oct,18 2016 - Post a comment / read (1)
Respawn co-founder and Call of Duty creator Vince Zampella recently talked with IGN to discuss the formation of Infinity Ward and the birth of Activision's wildly popular military FPS franchise, revealing that Call of Duty was created, in part, as a jab at EA and Medal of Honor, which Zampella had worked on at 2015 Inc. On the latest episode of our monthly interview show IGN Unfiltered, we asked Zampella about where the idea for Call of Duty came from and whether or not it was an "f-you" to Medal of Honor, to which we responded by saying, "a little bit."

Zampella then went on to discuss how–following the success of their work on Medal of Honor: Allied Assault–Electronic Arts wanted to take ownership of the studio, something he and his team pushed back against. "Originally when we formed Infinity Ward we were working with EA. We had a deal to do the sequel to Medal of Honor," he explained. "Allied Assault did so well that EA wanted to pull it in house, so they tried to force us to come be part of EA. We didn't want to do that." When the publisher "tried to strong-arm" the studio, Infinity Ward opted to take its business elsewhere and partner with Activision to essentially one-up Medal of Honor with Call of Duty. "Once they tried to strong-arm us, we decided we don't want to be part of EA. As a team we decided that isn't what we set out to do. We ended up going and working with Activision, and yeah, Call of Duty was kind of a response to that," he added.

PlayStation VR works on PC - briefly
(hx) 01:17 PM EDT - Oct,15 2016 - Post a comment
Following a report by a Japanese blog, it can be confirmed by this publication that the PlayStation VR indeed works as a personal viewer for PC, Mac, Wii U, Xbox One, and other HDMI sources.

Tested by setting up the PlayStation VR as normal and attaching the headset to the external processor and plugging that into the mains, the HDMI input on the rear of the box accepts a video signal from any HDMI source, with the device acting exactly like it would when handling non-VR content from a standard PlayStation 4.

The one major drawback is that the processor box must be connected to the PlayStation 4 via USB, since it requires the Sony-specific handshake, and you can't just plug it straight into another system. In short, if one wants to use PlayStation VR with another HDMI system, they're still going to need a PlayStation 4 at hand - though the PlayStation Camera doesn't need to be attached.

The processor box pipes through the HDMI output as standard to your HDTV via the social screen output, while the view inside the headset blows up the HDMI feed to a cinema-size display right in front of your eyes. Head-tracking still works to a certain extent - you can adjust your view of the 'cinema screen' by looking around as normal. This appears to be handled by the processor box and the headset's sensor.

In terms of the quality of the presentation, the PlayStation VR's handling of the screen-door effect means that the image is soft, rather than pixelated or grainy. However, there's still a significantly reduced resolution overall.

The PlayStation VR can be used as a full VR solution for PC gaming as well. The interfaces used by the hardware are standard - USB 3.0 and a HDMI 1.4 signal that outputs 1920x1080 at either 90Hz or 120Hz. This does require a bit of reverse engineering, however, as the USB protocols need to be intercepted and reversed while the tracking solution would need to be rewritten from scratch to accommodate PlayStation VR's unique RGB lighting set-up and headset, DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move support. After all this the entire project would need to be integrated into an existing VR framework in order to make existing PC titles work with the hardware.

Overall, PlayStation VR's compatibility with other systems is a happy accident of the system utilizing an existing standard. HDMI transmitters can question the receiver to check that the right device is attached (which is why you can't attach another VR headset to the PlayStation VR's external processor), but there's no easy way for the processing box to lock out non-approved source. With that in mind, the PlayStation VR treats any standard HDMI input exactly as it would if it were coming from the PlayStation 4.

Despite all this, however, it's safe to say that the use-case scenarios are highly limited, and that it should go without saying that the device should only be purchased primarily for use with PlayStation 4 hardware

The Counter-Strike Blog announces the return of the Inferno map for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, calling this "an instant classic and a mainstay in competitive CS:GO through the years." This page has all the details on updates to the map, explaining a focus on "quality-of-life upgrades and gameplay-tweaks instead of a complete rework.
While there have been upgrades and adjustments throughout the map, the core gameplay remains more or less the same.

We will continue to observe the gameplay and make tweaks and fine-tune the map as we collect more feedback.

Shadow Warrior 2 Released - briefly

Devolver Digital announces the release of Shadow Warrior 2, Flying Wild Hog Studios' follow-up to their martial arts shooter remake. FYI, Shadow Warrior 2 runs with more than 30fps in 4K and on Max settings on a single GTX980Ti.

Krzysztof Narkowicz, Lead Engine Programmer at Flying Wild Hog, was asked why the studio decided not to use any anti-piracy protection on Shadow Warrior 2 and his response was that DRM leads to a "worse version" of the game and that it hurts its customers. If you like the franchise or want to support the developer, buy the game.
