New gameplay trailer of Beacon

Monothetic has released a new gameplay trailer of Beacon, the studio's sci-fi action roguelike revealed in March. You will die many times in this game but fortunately a Clone Bay will allow you come back with altered statistics thanks to DNA collected from enemies. The goal is to create a version of youself that won't die but beware of too much alteration. It's coming soon on PC and Xbox One.

    b0vril yea, I don't really know how emulation works. (58 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The CPU will probably have multiple compatibility layers, replicating each architecture. Most likely just for PS3 and 4. Any decent CPU within the last decade has the PSX covered. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Probably an architecture thing, or something to do with the bios. Most emulation is brute forced. There's a good reason why the likes of PS3 are only now being efficiently emulated. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Bit isn't that just like any emulator? Isn't a SNES emulator on a modern PC pretending to be that old hardware to give more accurate results during emulation? (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @b0vril: what I don't understand about it is everything I've read says it lets the CPU "pretend" to be the native CPU of the console it's running backwards compatible games for. (9 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Had a game tonight where I popped the final player while riding Pathfinder's zipline out of the storm. So satisfying. (18 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wish Apex Legends had replays. It's one of those games that just delivers the most clippable moments. (18 Hours ago)
