Microsoft Making Universal Video Game Capture

According to Kotaku, a question posed to a Game Developer in the Tokyo Game Show brought about an unexpected and probably accidental answer. In case you are curious, the question was if the developer would attempt to include an in-game video capture feature.

You may notice the vague use of developer used here. That is because Kotaku and others are trying to conceal the identity of the person, to protect their job. Leaking information can lead to big problems when it comes to the video game industry, heh. Their answer was that they would love to have a video capture feature in their game. But then they questioned that why should they work on something that the platform holder, being Microsoft, is already in the process of developing. Oops?

A universal platform specific video capture feature for all games sounds pretty epic. I know that there were some epic moments in Fight Night Round 4 and Call of Duty 4 that I wish I could have captured on video. I suppose that I could use external recorders, but having an internal recorder makes it so much more convenient. There are few games that make use of a Video Capture feature, such as Halo 3 which allows you to navigate the recording in 3d space, which is a pretty amazing ability. I am not sure Microsoft would be able to create such an extensive universal video capture feature, but maybe they would at least be able to record what is shown on screen. But if they have all the features of the Halo 3 video capture feature, that would be amazing.

Microsoft was questioned about this, though not in a direct way. Just asked about their thoughts on the concept and whether or not they would embrace the idea. When a representative was asked, they merely said that they are always looking for ways to innovate Xbox Live at the platform level. They would not comment on a video capture feature, but they said you can assume that they are constantly looking for ways to be innovative. Maybe the ability to capture and share your recorded in-game videos over Xbox Live could be the next big update for the Xbox 360. If it is, I can be sure that those of you who are Xbox Live silver users, you will be left out. This would most likely need an Xbox Live gold membership, so if you do not have it yet, you should visit my first post on how to get Free Xbox Live.

The rest of the answers and responses they gave were simply dancing around the question. They played stupid and completely avoided answering it. If this is indeed true, then I feel a bit sorry for Microsoft, because this would have been a major news release. No one would have imagined this. This news completely caught me by surprise, actually. I honestly am now thinking that Microsoft is developing a universal video game capture feature, because that could be the sole thing that would set it apart greatly from the other consoles. That would be their way of creating the next big innovation for the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live alike.

Brutal Legend Demo Impressions

So, as I said in my previous post, the Brutal Legend demo has come out on Xbox Live. This was a good thing, because you originally had to preorder the game in order for you to get access to the demo, but now it has been made available to all users. This demo is currently limited to Xbox Live gold users, so if you are not one, you should read my first post on how to get Free Xbox Live.

My impressions differ than from what they once were on first impressions that I made yesterday while playing the game. The Brutal Legend demo introduces you to some of the main features of the game as well as the over all feel of it. You start off atop a skull mountain, fighting hooded figures. You first start off unarmed, before you run down and grab your giant axe. You are then shown the basics of fighting with the axe, which includes regular attacks, holding for a hefty attack, blocking and dodge rolling. After that, you are able to grab your guitar, which is basically your source of magic. You are able to strike your enemies with lightening or engulf them in flames. You are not able to spam these skills, however, or your guitar will catch fire and you will be unable to use it.

You are then basically shown how you can link up both your guitar attacks with your axe attacks for devastating combos. This can come in handy when fighting a group of enemies at once. Which brings to my attention a minor complaint, from what I see, your attacks are not area of effect attacks. So even though you are swinging around a ridiculously huge axe, it can only make contact with one enemy at a time, which sets me off a bit. After being shown the basics, you escape off the hill after fighting a long legged enemy and being taught how to target.

You then meet your ally whose name I did not bother remembering. The game has a basic system which allows you to be able to use your ally against your enemies by doing combined attacks. Which, in this case, consisted of you tossing her at an enemy of your choice. It is not anything special, but I suppose it is good to have. The rest of this is just fighting to get to the gate. You reach an area where you have to play an easy guitar solo. You build a car and mow down enemies as you race to the gate. Confront a monster, which meets its end by getting crushed by the gate, having it closed on its neck. The end is not so spectacular.

All in all, you would need to play this game in order to judge whether you like it or not. I, personally, do not like this game because the gameplay is not indepth enough for me to stay attracted to it. The combo system is lackluster, not being able to hit multiple enemies is a nuisance, the storyline annoys me, the only good thing about this to me would be the occasional good jokes. If you are looking for a new action adventure game to play, with a dash of comedy, you may want to check out the Brutal Legend Demo to see if you find anything you are interested in.

Brutal Legend Demo Out on Xbox Live

For those of you who are Brutal Legend fans, the demo has reached Xbox Live some time today or yesterday. Surely good news for those of you looking to be able to sample this brutal heavy metal action game without having to pay a dime. This hefty demo of 2gb will be packing the whole opening chapter of the game for you. Quite the package for such a heavily anticipated game.

Brutal Legend is a game by Tim Schafer, and is intended to be an action-comedy-adventure game sure to be a hit amongst hard core gamer. The buff axe wielding character of this promising game, named Eddie, hacks through hordes of enemies in a stylistic and comedic fashion. This open world game is a heavy metal fantasy world in which Eddie fights his way through. There are said to be 23 main missions in the game, coupled with 30 side missions that you may optionally take. There are also real heavy metal songs scattered throughout the game, hand picked by Tim Schafer himself, in which you can find and listen to.

The mutliplayer portion of this upcoming game is also promising. If you do not have Free Xbox Live for this game yet, you should read my first post, so you do not miss out. The multiplayer gameplay of Brutal Legend is a real time strategy, surprisingly. You gather a mass of fans in which you will then proceed to trek across the map in order to find and wreck your opponents stage, which is basically a resource point. The three factions of this mode are Eddie's faction, Doviculus's band, and Drowning Doom, a goth inspired band. Brutal Legend ships with seven maps and multiplayer has support for up to four people. Players are divided into teams through factions, in which you then defend your stages.

Though there are many features that should be implemented and fixed, this game is a fairly solid game at the moment and is worth taking a look at. It boasts a great single player mode, a robust multiplayer mode, and a solid amount of achievements. Brutal Legend will most likely be a game that is widely played across all of Xbox Live. If you have not been able to play the demo yet, then you should try getting Free Xbox Live, so you can be able to enjoy Brutal Legend without wait.

Blazblue: Calamity Trigger Xbox Live Impressions

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a 2D fighting game available for the Xbox 360 by Arc System Works, who also fathers the Guilty Gear franchise. You are able to clearly see the similarities that this game has with Guilty Gear, but is this game special in its own way? It definitely is and is quite worth playing, and here is why.

When you think of 2D fighting game, a lot of people immediately think of Street Fighter. That has to be one of the most boring fighting games I have ever come to play. The reason BlazBlue is such an amazing fighting game is because it is amazingly balanced. In the fact that if you try to use cheap hit and run tactics, or try to run away while dying, you will get penalized. Such as taking 2x the damage or other effects, it is a really great way of reducing the amount of hit and runners that you will encounter online. Not only that, but every character is deadly in their own way. From what I have seen while playing BlazBlue over Xbox Live, there is at least one person who uses a character that will completely destroy you and show you things that you have never even expected.

The online play of BlazBlue is incredibly smooth in some cases. Well, most cases that is, when you first enter the match you may see a bit of lag when the match is being declared. But through some smart coding on the developers part, the lag is calibrated and you experience little to no lag while actually in game play. This is a great thing, because for those of you who play a lot of combo driven games, you know that timing and control cooperation is necessary. The few times you do experience lag on BlazBlue, you will see how difficult it makes it to perform some of the more difficult combos, even if you are normally able to do it.

One of the great things about BlazBlue is that it is a very skill oriented game. Which also makes it one of the worst things about the game. For those of you who are novices, you may have a hard time getting into the game since you may not be able to complete some of the more difficult combos. Without remembering combos, you will simply be tossed around and destroyed on Xbox Live, since most of them know what they are doing. However, for those of you who are good at remembering combos and are committed, you will find this game a breeze and most likely find it refreshing as well. Just like my brother, managed to pick up a character that was considered "sub par" and regularly pawns people online with ease.

If you have Xbox Live gold membership, this is really a game worth getting, since the multiplayer is quite enjoyable. However, if you do not, then you should read my first post on how to get Free Xbox Live. Simply because getting Free Xbox Live is a great way to be able to enjoy all of your games in a new way. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger is a great game for all of you fighting game enthusiasts, and I recommend it to you, so check it out!
