Craig Ferguson interviews Notch

After watching the Minecraft documentary, I think it is safe to say that there is nobody in the gaming business that is more likeable then Markus “Notch” Persson. The guy is just a super humble and nice person, and it seems like his massive amounts of money didn’t change his character at all. So I very much enjoyed this recent interview that Craig Ferguson did with him. Some people were describing it as awkward, but I thought it was pretty hilarious and that Markus did a great job.



Battlefield 4 Uninstalled

I can’t take it anymore. Between the terrible netcode, unstable servers, and client crashes I just cant play anymore of Battlefield 4. What should be an enjoyable game is a frustrating experience of getting screwed over at every turn. The problems are numerous: unloading an entire clip at an enemy and not getting any hits, being shot from behind cover, losing unlocks when servers crash, and losing progress in single player due to client crashes. I am done, have uninstalled, and I wish I could get a refund.

Maybe the game will be fine in a month or two, I really hope so. But I certainly don’t expect any real fixes to the netcode in the short term. I can’t help but feel that this game was rushed out the door in order to beat Call of Duty Ghosts to market. Huh, maybe I should go play that instead.

Valve’s Steam Controller Demonstration

Valve has posted a video demonstration of their Steam Controller prototype. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with the level of accuracy that is shown. It looks like something that could get pretty close to mouse level accuracy with practice.

Here’s a quick look at some games being played with the prototype version of the Steam Controller — the same version that we’ll be shipping to 300 Steam users later this year. We’ll post more demonstrations like this soon, including footage of some other game developers using the controller to play their own games.



Battlefield 4 Beta on Xbox 360

Battlefield 4 Beta footage on Xbox 360. This game looks absolutely terrible on the console. Horrible low resolution texture quality, tons of pop-in, and enough aliasing on everything to give me a minor headache. At least the frame rate seems reasonably stable. Still, avoid at all costs if you can and sick to the PC if you can.



Battlefield 4 Beta Released

The Battlefield 4 beta is now out for everyone. Since it is a beta, it is a bit buggy and has some performance issues, but I am still finding it a lot of fun. Check out the video below which was recorded as some of my friends and I played for the first time. Hopefully the final release performs a bit better, as I don’t really feel like upgrading my CPU again.

If it looks like fun, you can download the beta here. Then check out this video below while it downloads to learn about what is available in the beta.
