My two days with Geralt were one of the most beautiful, most exciting and overwhelming experiences I have experienced in my 33 years gaming life

this is what matters and I don't really care if its with a mouse, a keyboard, a controller or a pitchfork

A GAME LIKE ROCK BAND IN 1080P AT 60 FPS???? THAT'S MORE AMAZING THAN A GAME LIKE RESIDENT EVIL WHERE EVERYTHING IS PRE-RENDERED EXCEPT PLAYER/ENEMY MODELS RUNNING AT 60 FPS!!!

MIND-BENDING!!!!!

Linux please.

they said from the start that Linux might never happen so I got the GoG version and finished it using Wine ages ago, so even if Linux then I won't even bother

Good old Jeff God I still got his Merak VHS video, he was smoking big time back then while play with this Trip-a-Tron

Maybe your right Cutter, but still, atari just wants money they not done anything with Tempest 2000 and Jeff simply believes its still the 70's ... he loves his games, its his passion... but sadly that means little the days and they bury him silly accusations while at the same time screwing him over with Tempest X

/sad

I'm also looking forward to Bloodborne. I wonder if it will be as good as Dark Souls.

Same here, from what I saw it feels "faster" but that not a bad thing, there is room for both games

Vulkan looks good, they not bound to being backwards compatible with openGL which is good, they can start with a clean slate, even more so then DX12.

there sure is a lot of Stairway to heaven hearable in the Spirit track, or actually the other way around I guess.

family members of Spirit frontman Randy Craig Wolfe (a.k.a Randy California) filed the suit against Zeppelin, seeking monetary damages and a writing credit for the now-deceased Wolfe,

its probably more about the monetary damages then a writing credit, but that last part makes it sound more like a noble cause.

Wonder what the damages could be on such an iconic song if they where found guilty

if you get 185 changes a day from a massive amount of contributors (4171 in past 15 months making 83000 changes) I do agree he is better of venting his frustration so people know how to not contribute then to be all nice and soft and gentle. In the end your contributing to a pretty cool piece of software and not having x-mas dinner with him.

PC gamer's preview today said there was still quite a bit of depth to it, even if it was a cheaper game.

I'm pretty interested in it, it looks pretty promising so far, and for $15...

A dutch site, (tweakers.net) had a preview/hands on with the game but where only allowed to play 3 turns, after reading that I had the idea it would take at least another 6 months to get a good game out (they where allowed 250 moves with beyoond earth preview)

What the hell is this BS? That guy was never a figurehead anymore than I am. That would be like claiming Blue is a member of the inner circle of the RNC, or Cutter is the secret man behind Obama. What a piece of shit article.

Editorial standards? Nope. Yellow journalism? Yep.

wth Cutter is not the secret man behind Obama ?

If by fine you mean less than 0.05% of the global gaming market.. then sure

Personally I would really like if the people in charge would get their head out of that cloud and start working towards making Linux an actual gaming OS, with proper API support, binary blobs, auto updating of drivers etc.

  • point of linux really is that nobody is in charge, the kernel has Linus yes but that is not the whole OS, the rest is lose parts, you can add them as you please and basicly that is what the distro's do, also its weak point.

  • binary blobs, a touchy subject for some, but if you want then you can get them, nobody stopping you, specially the nvidia blobs are pretty good

  • autoupdate, thats there and been there for ages, any good distro got it repositories and it will update anything you got from them, not just OS releated. Even novice users can keep a up to date system this way without having to do or know much

  • api, that is pretty broad, but its getting there, systemd is working towards a good base system, opengl next might do the trick gfx wise and input wise libinput is going the correct path


  • None the less, its a long way from being mainstream, and I use it daily as I am window-less so to speak.

    Without steam os it will go back to what is was 2-3 years ago, that is for sure
