The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E295

When we weren’t do­ing ev­ery­thing else, we were think­ing about stuff like this


While AMD and Nvidia have tra­di­tion­ally gone head to head with each new gen­er­a­tion of graph­ics cards, the ad­vent of VR has seen the two PC be­he­moths’ strate­gies di­verge. Nvidia’s first two VR-ready of­fer­ings, the GTX 1080 and 1070, dra­mat­i­cally un­der­cut last year’s £900 Ti­tan X, but the flag­ship card still costs north of £500. The 4GB ver­sion of Radeon RX 480, mean­while, costs just $200 (around £140). Built on AMD’s new Po­laris ar­chi­tec­ture, the card puts out five ter­aflops of com­pu­ta­tional power com­pared to the re­spec­tive six and nine of the 1070 and 1080, but with such a low price it should help to take the sting out of in­vest­ing in a VR setup.

@Dis­ney, now you’re not mak­ing games, please sell me my Mon­key Is­land and Ma­niac Man­sion IP. I’ll pay real ac­tual money for them. Ron Gil­bert @grumpygamer Cre­ator, Mon­key Is­land and Ma­niac Man­sion I have re­ceived loads of death threats this week, but don’t worry, Hello Games now looks like the house from Home Alone.

Sean Mur­ray @NoMan­sSky Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Hello Games I deeply re­gret wast­ing my twelve-thou­sandth tweet. OH WELL – happy 12K to me. Next up: Dream­fal­lChap­ters news. WOOOOO!
