Yak has made a new visualiser/lightsynth that will come built into the new Xbox360.

And it looks fucking awesome :)


Check out the video demo from http://www.llamasoft.co.uk

The curse of Minter strikes again!

No disrespect to the Yak, but if he's on board for this console, doesn't it usually mean that it's headed toiletwards ;-)

Konix, Jaguar, that DVD player thing I can't remember the name of right now, and of course, Unity getting canned.

Hope he has better luck this time.

wow, that absolutely looks like...

erm, totally unspectacular visualization stuff.

i mean, the screenshots are nice enough, but that movie? i absolutely don't see how that is much better than the average winamp plugin.

CiH: NuoN is the name of that DVD player.

My oh my, that is good news :)
indeed, it looks like a stock winamp plugin. Just the colors are much uglier!

Why on earth is it so difficult to break the symmetry? Why does everything have to by so symmetric and aligned to the screen center?

Calimero, thanx! That was bugging me.

I find it weird that a company that contracts with MS on doing a plugin for an MS product on an MS platform, chooses to show case the product via non MS software (ie. I have no intention of installing QuickTime just to watch this Winamp Visualizer-wannabe).
just to watch this Winamp Visualizer-wannabe

haha idiot. read the website.
The BIG thing you have to remember with the video is that the loss of quality in compression will not do Yaks work justice at all, I have seen this going first hand on better quality footage and looks a hell of a lot crisper.

I am actually suprised more beaty music wasn't used to get the colours pulsing more. Trust us, this isn't 'just another visualizer'.
No. It's freaking Minter. We know.
And if you don't, IT'S FREAKING MINTER.


Don't worry about it. I fully intend on throwing Altemark, Banana, WOTW, Grey Park, Demovibes, and Wayfinder at it. And being ...

sorry. Cueder/Smokebomb on Nectarine. I must mosh.

That guy really has a religious following. I did not even like RMC, sorry.

I've never understood what was so great about Llamasoft. Besides, weren't most of his games just blatant rip-offs from old arcade games?
the good thing about these news is simply the following: the m$-xbox360 will die a slow and painful death and sales should drop after a few months.
Cause any platforms that ran yaks stuff had the same unlucky future. ;)))

What is all the hype about llamasoft? "Revenge of the Mutant Camels" is a sub average shooter with very ugly graphics.
