I don't believe so, but I'm not positive. They seem to be listening to folks (the next firmware is going to allow saving/exporting video to USB drives/devices, so we're not stuck with bookface) so I would encourage you to keep banging that drum and let them know.

Microsoft is still pushing the 'sold to retailers' numbers instead of sold to customers like Sony.

yup its sold to stores not to customers, so <5m xbone vs >7m ps4

ps: Nin, not keeping up with the Ps4 firmwares, but is it possible to stream to the ps4 yet, I do that lot with ps3.

10. Dark souls 2 Apr 13, 2014, 01:51 Xil
 
totally of topic but finally finished dark souls 2 on PS3, yeah yeah I know it's not on PC, but I run linux so that is my excuse

I am far from a skilled player as 90 hours & lvl 202 proof, that is how long it took me, but what a blast is was !

gfx wise at first I was disappointed I have to admit but once I was in the flow of things it no longer matters to be honest.

In ways its easier then DS1, the bonfire travel, the fact that after killing the same mob 10 times they no longer repop stops farming and made me often clean the path from last bonfire to boss so many times I could simply run there (full of frustration after being killed by a boss) without adding more frustration being killed by trash.

One of th tactics I also used was using the soapstone near boss area's so others called you for help and you get the some feeling for the boss fights.

biggest trill for me was solo killing the old iron king as a melee and not hiding at all, that was just amazing.
biggest "see I can do this" was killing the ancient dragon solo after just 2 tries.
biggest frustration was getting killed with 120k souls on me, running back and about 2 meters from my souls I though F*** I forgot those 2 bowmen and 1ms later getting 2 arrows in my back finishing me off.....
biggest regret: getting help on the mirror knight, my dps was simply to low making the fight to long and the adds just messed me up eventually, but if I just had tried a few more times I could have done it I think....

Great game despite its flaws, bit easier, bit less frustration as with DS1 or Daemon Souls, well worth its money!

Good, but something tells me not very many developers or Gog themselves will spend a lot of time/money making linux executables for old games.

Still, limited selection is better than no selection.

every DOS game they sell can converted by simply adding the linux dosbox executable instead of the windows dosbox executable that's really 5min work

all new games that are on linux can come over

its really the win95/98 stuff (if talking about old games) that won't come over

this whole ubuntu stuff irritates me, ubuntu is going a totally diffrent way in the linux eco system so pick the distro on which ubuntu is based: debian (and no am not using that one either but just makes more sense)

I still haven't finished Witcher 1, let alone 2. I'm trying but it's an older title with lots of little quirks. I'm half tempted to just watch a video summary and move on to Witcher 2.

if you can get past the little quirks then Witcher 1 is really really worth it, I feel the story is a wee bit better then 2.

Because the dirty whore from Germany decided she likes to be watched. (It's a funny)

Sadly it's not far from the truth.... As a German I am absolutely disgraced and ashamed by my fellow Germans, as-well as the Governments response to this.

90% in this country, literally do not give a fuck. Because they are too stupid, seriously. They do not, comprehend, the NSA leaks, at all. They do not understand the consequences and ramifications. Even if you explain them they openly tell you "I have nothing to hide" and then 2 weeks later it turns out they downloaded child-porn.

Yes, we have fucking retards like that.

God, I hate, this, country. But I don't other countries are much better.

Speaking as your neighbor to the west, its much worse here and the few people here who are concerned about privacy and law and how the public is informed look up to you guys. Just look at the difference between your pirate party and ours. so I think your being a bit harsh, of course it can be better but believe me it can be a lot lot worse

Someone get major nelson in here for damage control!

So, without going into details, I found out yesterday I've come into some unexpected money. And for all of 10-15 seconds, I considered buying an xbone (specifically the titanfall bundle).

Then I was like "na, who am I kidding? I'm not rewarding those fucks."


just the fact you even thought about it Nin.... so /sad

the start seems to be to slow to even reach the 60k though, but yes fingers crossed.

On another note, not sure it was on blues yet, this rpg kickstarter blew past it's goal in no time Kingdom Come: Deliverance
and in some parts I get a witcher 2 vibe, just a little... sorry

Saw that one and I'm in. Here is another interesting one which promises a hardcore MMO from some MMO Vets.

Patheon: Rise of the Fallen

edit: Also in on Dungeonforge

ooh brad mcquaid, he owns me like 2 years of my life from EQ looks pretty cool, thanks !

I did enjoy Broken Age, it was very short though and did enjoy it but it really did not give my any of the old adventures vibes.

What people want (or at least I want) is an online only purchase, and at a semi reasonable price.


I think the potential for that world wide is huge, HBO must have some sort of interest in keeping the cable providers in such a position.

Game of Thrones is the most downloaded series ever and its not because people don't want to pay for it, its because it simply is not available everywhere.

If you want Steam UI to be VR ready... I can see that. I also see Valve's angle because this is business. But other than the UI, which I'm not even focused on one iota, it does nothing for me. The game will have all the VR hooks programmed wholly within itself, no matter what the delivery/launcher used.

As long as there is just Rift then your right, but when there eventually come more then either all game makers need to implement support for each "new" VR set or they simply implement the Steam API or what ever you want to call it and the headset makers do the same == a new head set works on all games that support that API
