Title: OUYA
Post by: SK on August 04, 2012, 07:05:53 PM
haf you guys heard about the oh yeah (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ouya/ouya-a-new-kind-of-video-game-console/posts)

its this big console thing that got a shitload of money on kickstarter and apparently is going to be a thing you can buy if you want a console that does literally everything a computer can do but not as good

seriously read up on some of their ads, they have wonderful things now like RADIO and THE ABILITY TO VIEW CENSORED MUSIC VIDEOS

you'll also be able to play FINAL FANTASY 3 for the first time ever (except for emulators (and the ds remakes))

so yeah im pretty excited

The big problems with the Ouya? First of all, it's not really going to do anything that smart-TVs couldn't do given a little more development and a proper gamepad. Which is probably the next logical step for them, and something that could already have happened if Google TV would actually have gotten some better thought put into it - the Ouya tries to be all HOLY SHIT AN ANDROID DEVICE FOR YOUR TV. The Google TV was specifically that.

Second... it's an Android device. Android is an OS for SMARTPHONES AND TABLETS. Games for Android are designed to work for smartphones and tablets. So what does the Ouya do? Make a gamepad with a touchpad. That doesn't change the fact that the game library will be a goddamned Android game library. And oh, it's supposed to be easy to develop for! You just need to take a quick glance at something like XBox Live Indie Games to see that this is going to mean that 95% of the game library will be utter, utter shit. What I envision on release day (well, at least when people have gotten their systems) is a lot of people looking through the game library and going "I paid a hundred bucks for this?"

What I really want the Ouya to become is the Kickstarter project that makes people realize that maybe, just maybe, they should stop and think a little harder before they start blindly throwing money at stuff.

Seriously. This amount of money into something that looks more and more disappointing as time goes on.

I agree with you two 110%. I funded a few projects on Kickstarter before: (Carmageddeon and Double Fine), but that's mainly because I know those developers well and they deserved it.

This thing is not worth throwing your money blindly at. If you really want to play your Android games on the TV get a micro HDMI cable and an ASUS Transformer tablet with the controller accessory. Boom you got an OUYA.

The console is taking a steady decline to shitsville right now. It's a great concept, but so far it's being executed poorly.

It's not free games, though.

Also, someone made what the Ouya concept should have been (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1703567677/icontrolpad-2-the-open-source-controller).

Kenny: I don't know, that looks pretty uncomfortable. Like, it's not that much wider than a GBA SP but it has way more buttons on it. Guess it's the price you pay trying to make something work with a phone, though.

Well the trailer thing said it was free.
What they've said is that all games need to in some form be freely available - which includes just having a free trial of the game.

Soap: Yeah idk about how nice that would be to actually use, but the concept is virtually the same since Ouya's pitch was all "You want to play games on your TV sitting in your sofa using a gamepad!"

Essentially all Android games are free in some way or form and I'm not talking about trials and demos.

(http://eatchain.com/garbage/visorman-cover.jpg)

(http://www.indiegamemag.com/media/Screenshot5Visorman.jpg)

The game’s concept is simple — the titular Visorman is positioned as the saviour of old-school FPS design, gunning down generic army men in generic locations in order to find and destroy the ‘modern day formulas’ of AAA game design. Despite the over-familiar setting and enemy types, Peter Saunders of Polygon Gaming has been keen to stress that the game will still feel like a 90s homage.

Oh and also they're apparently planning on releasing a new hardware version every year. Which on the one hand isn't really rare when it comes to most android devices like smartphones and tablets but this is a thing they want to compete on the console market with.

And that's not how the console market works.

Every game is free to download, but then dumps on your head a load of nags, pop-ups, and pleas for upgrades or in-app purchases — some games are $4.99, some are $15.99, others just constantly implore you to donate $.99 so the developer can have a beer. Worst of all, it makes buying things impossibly easy — you enter a credit card when first setting up your Ouya, and there are often no confirmation boxes or checks against you spending thousands of dollars. Oh, you hit Upgrade because it's right next to Play and the controller's laggy? Perfect. Thanks for your money.

Title: Re: OUYA
Post by: total body workout on September 29, 2013, 01:48:22 AM
its us, we collectively owned the console, both in the sense that "the masses" "crowdsourced" it into existence and therefore everyone "owns" OUYA in a certain fashion, and also in the sense that we owned it with our jokes in this thread critiquing its low quality.

apparently royally fucking up was their gameplan from the beginning, so i guess we cant fault them too much (!?)

well in their defense people are buying those mistakes at 100 bucks a pop, so i cant really blame them for not halting production
