    “Nintendo introduces video games that can play themselves”

    Well, that’s the logical next step! First you develop simple motion-control games for those who are intimidated by all them dang buttons and those complex gameplay mechanics.

    Then you develop games that play themselves for those that are intimidated by waving your arms around and the nuisance of having to control and direct what happens onscreen!

    What’s the third step, I wonder. Maybe just a printout inside the case that says “You Win!” instead of a game, for those that are intimidated by having to sit down and watch the game play itself.

      Apparently that game is really hard. Ars says they couldn’t beat it without using that feature…

      I think you should take a good look at this thing called the Xbox. It brought games that may as well play themselves and just tell you that you won, long ago.

      Almost dead? Stand still for 3 seconds – your health has recharged! Got killed? Instant, infinite respawn – three feet from where you died!

      That mentality has overtaken PC games, as well. But keep picking on the Wii. You will look “hardcore” next time you go play that shooter that completely eliminated item collection and anything resembling a challenge. :p

    Things I would like to see in Win8:

    Better battery life.
    Faster boot/instant on.
    Better support for heterogenous computing/GPGPU/OpenCL/DXCompute.
    A good Exposé clone.
    Built in tablet/stylus/touchscreen interface.
    TRIM for RAIDed SSDs.
    Native USB3/Lightpeak/Blu-Ray support.
    Better integration/UI for scheduled tasks.
    Ditch the registry.

    I’m sure there are lots of areas for improvement, like an App Marketplace, cloud services integration etc., but the list above is for areas where I feel win7 is lacking right now.

    EDIT: Oh, and maybe automatic sandboxing of programs? Could get messy though.

      • derFunkenstein
      • 10 years ago

      ’cause I wonder where you are,
      And I wonder what you do.
      Are you somewhere feeling lonely,
      Or is someone loving you?
