The xbox one reveal

So yea normally I’m sitting here coding away, but yesterday was a bit special with microsoft having revealed their new console which according to the gametrailer promo only happens twice a decade.
But this console i have to say did not amaze me, atleast not yet as they kinda glossed over a great deal of things.

State of the bang 2012-2013

Welcome to my first annual (and possibly only the the way i keep changing this) state of the bang in where i talk about what happened and my thoughts on what i like to do in the future.

So first off i finally participated in Ludum Dare, it’s a insane competition in where you have to make a game in 48 hours, do i need to say that it was sort of a failure for me, but i did learn a bunch of things about what my toolkit really needs and a few other things, like proper preparation and smaller scope.

Next generation console graphics

Lately i have been seeing a lot of articles on N4G claiming that either the next generation console graphics will be the same as it’s now, that nothing can beat the halo 4 graphics, that the next generation is not really necessary, and that a game already had next gen graphics, all of which are complete and utter bullshit, but im not going to stop there, instead lets wade trough the knee deep cesspool of video game journalism while wearing the boots of “well duh” and some kind of sanity based breathing/filtration system.

What the ps4 needs to get ahead of the xbox 720

So there is a better than 0% chance that we will see the new ps4 announced at this years E3, but heres the thing, the next console cycle is Sony’s to loose, so what will it take for it to get ahead of the next xbox in no particular order. Read more »

2012 – the last year of the mayans

So new year new predictions.
In general i would like to lead off with saying that the world is now at or approaching another step towards becoming a true type 1 civilization, and much like the era around the start of the millennium it is filled with tension, uncertainty and turbulence in more or less every area of life, be it technological cultural, political or what have you.

We saw last year that a lot of the old powerstructures are beginning to break up as exemplified by the arab spring, occupy movement and most recently the successful protests against SOPA/PIPA and this is likely to continue.
regarding technology a lot has happened just the last year, but i can’t help feeling like this is just the beginning of a new cycle of a new distributed form of hardware independent computing.
Anyway all this makes things somewhat complicated to figure out, but i will give it a try.

The Ps4?

So again theres the rumor going around that the ps3 is going to be presented at e3 this year, so nothing new under the sun except that it’s pretty early for those since they usually start popping up in april.
But this year it seems does have a really high chance of it actually appearing.
I don’t care what Pachter says, after all he did peg the next Wii for 2009, 2010 and 2011, so what does he know.
Instead lets examine the evidence.

E3 2011 – Nintendo predictions

Nintendo has a lot of exiting things going on this year with the 3ds, wii2 and their game lineup, but i suspect that all is not well inside the company, they continue to have small dev teams, huge delays and frankly lackluster titles and that does not bode well when they are making the transition into the HD world, they have to make some pretty major internal changes and it better show in the press conference that they have this June 7:th at 9:00am PST (check you local timezones and watch it on gametrailers.com)

E3 2011 – Microsoft predictions

So E3 is just a few weeks from now so it’s about time to give my opinion on what i think each major console manufacturer are planning for the show, now this year isn’t easy for get a grip on what is going to happen given the announcement of the wii successor and the whole PSN thing, i wouldn’t be surprised if some of that spilled over to the other press conferences.
First out is Microsoft on June 6:th at 9:00 am PST (i find it easier to just set up another clock with Los Angeles time and go by that than trying to convert it to my timezone).

What is Web 3.0

Indeed what is web 3.0, if you read wikipedia you will read a short segment about the “semantic web” which is essentially about making human readable pages machine readable as well and vise versa. But to me that doesn’t sound that three-point-oh-ish, especially if you take in consideration that 2.0 is all about collaboration and sharing, in my mind you have to use some common factor to quantify what version it is.

2011 what year it will be part 2

While 2010 was the year that android matured trough it’s early childhood, this year will be all about market saturation, we will see it grow with 3.0 and become something more than ios could ever be.
