I'm about ready to unsubscribe from him, he needs to write better scripts and edit more. He sounds like a 2000s IGN reviewer who just got a thesaurus (STOP SAYING "ARRAY") and most of his content is just dryly reading other articles. Inside Gaming and Jim Sterling do it better, because they're at least funny and Jim does good analysis.

Also he moved to LA to try and be a voice actor, and, uh, he's not good. He sounds kinda like that one guy who did voices in every Flash game on Newgrounds.

i must be too internet-poisoned but wtf is "IK"?

It is Inverse Kinematics.

What this is, in video games, is the programming to allow a character to interact "physically" with the world around it.

Some obvious implementations of this are, for example, characters feet placement over terrain.

Other implementations involve characters hands reaching out dynamically to interact with objects, able to make a motion that hasn't been animated in a set fashion.

One of the companies that has always done stuff like this really fantastically has been Rockstar, with the sheer amount of ways characters can dynamically interact with, and be hit by and interact with, pieces of the environment or other character entities.

CIG is very big on motion capture, and static animations. This animation looks good, but it's also starting to age out in today's modern world where a character is more "being" in and taking up "space" in its environment rather than just being some sort of collision box that plays some animation when a button is pressed. This level of being and taking up space is where this level of IK programming comes into play, making a characters actions much more believable and physical feeling in their world.

It's like the difference between watching a CIG character climb a ladder vs playing Uncharted or something similar and climbing around a more complex environment and watching how that character moves and interacts.

In CIGs defense though, I doubt they will ever be able to attract the level of developers with the knowledge to be able to implement these more complex systems. So expect a million hours motion capturing grabbing something from different levels of a shelf.

Yeah, here's YongYea's voice acting reel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQmu_ayxEpE

He's ok, I guess, but in a very 90s anime way. A lot of goofy accents and SCREAMING.

Jul 1, 2018



with games like flight simulator and cyberpunk releasing this year, i think we can say that 2020 really is the year that gaming hardware is ready to handle games just as chris always imagined them to be. this stuff looks just as my imagination when i run in circles with my airplane toys. (i dont do that)

some 2020 games are exactly at the level of FIDELITY chris always wanted to have, but alas the piss poor hardware always foiled his plans.

its sad that we do not see him on camera anymore, because i would like to know his thoughts on current gen games. would he consider them on par with store citizer? i mean flight simulator HAS ONLY ONE PLANET.

Except MFS2020's planet is as large as all of SC's planets put together, and has way more airports/spaceports (tens of thousands), cities (millions), environments (every environment ever mapped by Bing Maps), an actual flight model, better graphics, and real world real time weather and air traffic. I expect blood on the ground third week of August as gamers really get into the game and see how far behind SC is a true next gen game.

Don't know if this has been posted before, but after reading some of the crap that backers spout, about how CI are making all these wonderous tools to make the development faster. (Any day now) I thought I would have a quick look at what Lumberyard could do via some YouTube tutorials. One backer spoke about Planet Painting, you know, texturing terrain, like CI had invented it. Check out the comments on this tutorial.
