So your first premise is that I'm crying because I'm complaining about a bug. Then you go on to say all RPG's have a shit load of bugs, which is certainly a giant blanket of bullshit. So you just bend over and accept a load of bugs in your RPG's? Man, talk about indoctrinated.
It's not a giant blanket of BS though.. Most RPGs have many bug fixes in the first patch or even the first few patches sometimes. With such a large world and tons of quests there are always things the developers miss.

I am not liking the RT combat even with the slow speed. I'm still all about that bass, er uh I mean turn-based. Shit flies by so fast I have no idea if my spells and skills work half the time without looking at the combat text. It also makes it a real PITA using food/potions. I'd like to see them last significantly longer than a few minutes.
You can set 'pauses' for many different events and/or at set time intervals and there is an auto-slow feature. I prefer RT though like it was in BG and IWD because it speeds up combat and if I need to pause for some reason I just press the space bar.

I found my name in the strategy guide! In which I must say it is a great looking and thorough guide.

First complaint - why the arrow keys? Why way over there? ugh. Is there a better way? Can't use the mouse? I have to really move my hand all the way across?
I assume you're being sarcastic as the commands can be configured however you like and the mouse works fine.

Glad to hear all the great initial reviews! I'm getting ready to download it myself but I will have to wait a little while before I can play it..

It looks like I selected the $140 tier then added the future expansion pack for $20 extra.

Interesting to note that Kevin from the inXile team doing Torment:ToN said he first heard about the Project Eternity Kickstarter right here on Blue's News! That's where I heard about it too!

Yeah, even to see all the 3D-printed prosthetic limbs that people and animals are using nowadays is great. There are many cool filaments too such as wood, rubber, wax (in testing), carbon fiber, and some with metallic properties.

When I have some time I want to print and build these though:

If you really could play a game for 14 days then return it for a refund, that would be enough time to finish most games!

That's pretty cool! I have a 3D printer and it's really slow but I can print significantly larger objects with it. I know that resin isn't cheap either compared to ABS filament.

I'm excited to see new 3D printing technologies though.. There are many cool things in the works now.

Doesn't the apple iwatch have a fast discharge of like five hours and you need to charge it up again?
According to Apple it gets about 18 hours so it would need to be charged every night. We'll have to wait and see what the reviews say about battery life after it is released.

Hrm, this sounds like a vastly (graphically) superior version of Interstate '76...

If so, that would be pretty cool!

I thought you all were just being extra critical about the graphics because it appeared to be played on a console, but then I watched it and it does look worse than other gameplay videos I have seen.. Particularly the character models.

Never even played the first but I heard good things about it. A lot people even claimed it as their game of the year. I would definitely like a run thru that one before seeing what this sequel is all about.
It's actually a prequel so maybe you should play Old Blood first!

Why is there even going to be a market for "mobile VR"?

Why are people seemingly convinced they will be able to see the difference between 1080p and 4K on a 2 inch screen?
I don't know about mobile VR but Microsoft's Hololens would have mobile applications.

And I don't know if anyone can tell a difference in that resolution but it is more noticeable when it's a couple inches from your eyes.

And btw, I also think the only way with VR is going to be with custom controllers. Even ignoring the BASIC problem (VR not knowing where your hands are) you need to have a controller that is connected and linked to movements within the game...

This looks promising as a VR controller.. among other things: https://www.thalmic.com/en/myo/

Well, DayZ was the number 1 seller for months, and it was and is an unfinished buggy mess. Just sayin'
Bah, zombie games don't count.. There is a large group of people who will buy anything zombie-related.

I'm embarrassed to say I preordered HWRC, something I haven't done in literally ten years. Embarassed

But I'm loving it, so money well-spent!
I don't know how long it's been but I haven't preordered anything in years either until HWRC. I'm enjoying it too though and am re-learning which ships are best to use against the enemy.

Krovven wrote on Mar 1, 2015, 20:23:
There is a bug preventing you from zooming in closer to ships...which means for units like Collectors you cant see how many RU's they are holding.
I haven't noticed this.. All you have to do is 'Focus' on one ship then it lets you zoom in very close.

Wraith wrote on Mar 2, 2015, 01:12:
It crashes randomly all over the fucking place. They didn't do anything right - Gearbox is still fucking Gearbox.
It must be your rig because I haven't had it crash at all and I've gotten a good 8 hours or so into it already too. If they didn't do anything right then it wouldn't be the #1 seller and so highly rated on Metacritic.

So are the visual improvements white and gold or black and blue?

Depends on your skill level. Good players get white and gold. Bad players get black and blue. Punch
No, no.. It's the other way around!
