Crash Bandicoot remaster cut corners on the freaking jump button

Enlarge / Recovered 3D meshes help, but pretty much everything about this Crash remaster image had to be rebuilt from scratch. (credit: Activision) I was happy to offer reluctant praise for the content-loaded Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy earlier this month, but I am admittedly not a Bandi-cologist. I have been watching how more hardcore fans, such as speedrunners, might react to this anthology, which required a full code rewrite, and eagle-eyed fans caught some issues that I didn’t. The anthology’s developers at Vicarious Visions took to their official blog on Monday to confirm the issue: yep, you’re not imagining things. “Our game engine features a different collision system than the original game, and combined with the addition of physics, certain jumps require more precision than the originals,” the Monday blog post reads. This admission joins a longer description of how the jumps in each of the anthology’s original PS1 games had Read the full article…

Marvel’s Oculus VR game perfectly captures the feeling of embodying a superhero

One of the more intriguing announcements to come out of Disney’s biennial D23 expo this past weekend was Marvel’s new virtual reality game, made in partnership with Facebook-owned Oculus VR. The title, called Marvel Powers United VR, is not due out until 2018 as an exclusive for the Rift headset, but we got the opportunity to try out an early build of it at the conference. As you might expect, Marvel Powers United VR boasts several different characters of varying sizes, shapes, and skill sets, and when playing for the first time I could chose between Rocket Raccoon, Deadpool, Captain Marvel, and The Hulk.

#08 The People’s House Obama in VR — Emmy award for political reasons?

This is a review of a 360 degrees video called ‘The people’s house?—?inside the White House with Barrack and Michelle Obama’. Felix & Paul Studios made it, and they are from Canada. The video recently won an Emmy award for “Outstanding Original Interactive program 2017.” That’s a bit bizarre as the experience is not so special. The white house and listening to Obama speech face to face? You may ask what is like the experience? It almost feels like you are there and it just feels as if the president recorded this video as a farewell message to everyone. In a nutshell, it’s a plain 360 degrees recording with no special effects or tricks. It’s just that, and it won one of the Emmy awards just recently, just how? Perhaps this is because VR is receiving so much hype around the globe that even politicians want to be associated with it? Let’s Read the full article…
