Digital Foundry has an answer to my question about Dragon's Dogma being letterboxed (black bars on top and bottom). It's as I expected a performance issue:

QUOTE (Digital Foundry)
The first thing we noticed is the unusually wide aspect ratio - it's closer to that of a 2:35:1 movie than the common 16:9 presentation we normally see in video games. Both versions of Dragon's Dogma are thus rendered in a sub-HD resolution (1280x608), but in order to avoid any unwanted scaling this is actually contained in a native 720p buffer with blank pixels rendered at the top and bottom of the screen.

But why make the change? The open-world design of Dragon's Dogma is particularly demanding: large-scale environments are packed full of detail, while the world is lit and shaded using a huge number of dynamic light sources, all of which put a burden on the current-gen consoles with their limited amounts of RAM and processing power. In that respect, adopting this particular kind of framebuffer set-up works as a performance-saving measure designed to reduce the overall pixel workload of both console's respective GPUs, so that these resources can be better spent enhancing the visuals elsewhere. There'll obviously be a RAM saving too in comparison to a standard 720p image buffer.

As a side effect this gives the game a slightly more cinematic look, while images appear as crisp as they would in a 'full-screen' 720p game


Can't wait to see what happens when developers like these are unleashed on the next-gen consoles smile.gif

Edit: this is that Iphone game/app whatever I was talking about yesterday:

Oh wow that app is completely ridiculous, who the hell is going to spend nearly $100 on a bloody sprite for a game -_- I honestly don't know how these kind of things can make it onto the store, and how nobody has said that it is pretty much robbery at those prices.

So I've finally started revising for my first exam (this thursday) so I will probably only be on in the evenings for the next couple of weeks till my exams are over (Next thursday)

GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS BELOW

Jedi - I think we did quite well in predicting who would survive for a while. Arya looks quite safe for now and it looks like my predictions were correct in that there is big things lined up for her. What was that sh*t about the different coloured eyes about!? I think she is going to become a shape-shifting assassin like Jaqen she met at Harrenhal. I think Jon Snow is going to be ok for a while too.

Was the eye comment refering to the colour eyes of the people she would kill or the colour eyes she would have? I'm interested to see what happens with Arya's friend who got taken away, he seems to play a pretty big part too. I'm still not digging any of the Bran segments but hopefully they'll get better soon. That would have probably been the best overall episode for me if not for the exclusion of Khaleesi. We're gonna have to wait and see if our prediction about the whole Theon torture thing is right, at the moment it's up in the air and he could be f*cking anywhere. It seems Little Finger and Joffrey have a little plan they're conjuring up, those two could be f*cking deadly especially with the "new experience" relating to killing/hunting (crossbowed the f*ck up).

I thought the same thing about whether it was the eyes of the people she'll kill in the future. Can't wait to see what happens with her. I dunno what will happen with her friend now. He'll probably get seduced by the Evil Ginger Bitch (her unofficial name) and tossed aside after she spawns one of those ethereal characters. I feel the same about the Bran segments. I really wish the Starks would actually do something instead of all this bullsh*t politics that gets them nowhere. I love the Lannister politics though. That conversation between Tywin and Grandma Tyrell was sick. I dunno what Little Finger is up to but he wont be around long with people like Tywin and Jamie around (once he gets back). I hope the Lord of Light forgives me for my lack of Game of Thrones knowledge.

Jedi - I just rewatched it and she says "Eyes you'll shut forever". So I am guessing she kills niggas...

Cal - Give me a shout if you're up for playing some Guardian of Derp. I'll probably be on DD for the next few hours but I'll come off it to play with you. I just wanna get it completed now. Make sure you bring your co-op face and I'll try to bring mine.

Good games on GTA before btw. It was brief but I had fun all the same icon14.gif .

Got a little prediction for Jon Snow. I reckon the King of the North (not Rob) is going to die sometime either this season or next and Jon is going to be the new leader. Imagine that, Jon marching with all those f*cking wildings (wildlings?) and giants all the way the Kings Landing.

I'm pretty sure I said something similar last time we spoke (of GoT). It would be good. But why would he do that? To help Rob or because he suddenly realises that the whole realm is built on corruption and that too many of the people he cares about are dying? Not very likely seeing as he is so detached from civilization. Perhaps he'll rendezvous with Bran or somebody and get the lo-down. It would seem a pretty bold move travelling south with the White Walkers still to worry about. Remember he was sent there to protect the seven kingdoms. If he leaves then he would have abandoned the Black Watch (if there is anything left of it) which means there is no-one to protect the wall. My guess is that he will eventually travel south as TRUE leader of the north, going after Khaleesi's dragons with the dragon glass they found. I'm guessing it's used to kill dragons... It's going to interesting to see where the White Walkers come into it. If Jon does go south I'm guessing he'd leave some people to protect the wall. If that is the case they'll probably get over-run leaving the north is exposed and no-one there to protect it with all attention being on matters in the south. That'll change the politics a bit. I just hope Arya or Khaleesi get to sit on the throne by the time the books are finished. Maybe both?

Game of Thrones fans, I just got a call from Microsoft for some beta program they wanted to if I wanted in. I said yes (didn't get in) and they were asking me questions to see if I qualified. They said it was for a show or movie that I would watch May 9th and fill out a survey about it afterwards. Some of the questions were asking if I like Sci Fi shows, if I like dramas, etc. Then they asked if I have HBO, if I saw the recent Star Trek movie, and if I saw the recent GoT episode.

So it sounds like there might be some Sci Fi Game of Thrones show/movie on the horizon. Just my speculation.

I have to answer those same sort of questions when I fill out surveys for Xbox Rewards.

They were probably just trying to get statistical data so they know how to better market stuff to consumers on LIVE.

I see where you could get that from, but before they asked me all of those questions they asked if I had time May 9th to watch a show or movie. That was the part that tipped me off thinking it may be a new show or something.

Seems plausable. But is there anything slated for a premire on TV on the 9th? I personally can't recall anything.

@Sweaty- I watched the Quantum Leap episode on the JFK assasination yesterday. Turns out it was the Russians LOOL #beeppost

Moyes. icon14.gif Which manager are you gonna hate the most in the Prem now? tounge2.gif

Regarding GoT: He might place someone like Sam (that's the guy, right?) in charge of guarding the wall with a few hundred wildlings. I think they would have killed off a character like that if he didn't have a big role to play in something. That will leave Snow enough time to claim the iron throne and then charge back up to the wall as Sam is being over run with whitewalkers. A bit of a long stretch but it could always happen.
