Any good? Seeing as half the reviews are negative I'm not holding my breath.

I think its a small gem, but its hard also, don't expect wasteland2 or similiar combat, its harder and more realistic. was a combat movie on blues a few days ago that showed just that.

I guess this is a good thing for people that use OSX and Linux. I can't help but think that is being added too late for it to really matter. If they added support for this two years ago when Linux and OSX native ports for most games were few and far between this would have been a huge deal. As there are tons of native games on all platforms this is really the kind of thing you shrug your shoulders at.

To be honest I would be focusing my efforts on the Vulkan API over supporting an API that is being phased out.

They had directX9 for a long time and to be honest its only recently that I ran into games that 100% need DX11, so far I been running stuff fine. Biggest issues has always been de .net/C# some games need to only their launcher or other silly stuff.

I doubt myself that steamos will so big so I am pretty sure crossover/wine is here to stay.

Retailers want to be able to scan your face without your permission.

They do something more important already. The use your phone data to track you in the store via gps data. Have fun!

Source? Because that sounds like it would be running afoul of wiretapping laws. Anyway, I keep my GPS disabled precisely because I don't want to make it any easier for Big Brother to track me than it already is.

This is all such bullshit. Pretty soon you're going to have to live in a cave in the middle of nowhere off the grid to have any privacy.

nothing new that, they use it tosee how people walk through the store, where they stop or not stop, so far they say its anonymous

not 100% sure what to expect. Will it be like Grimrock, who actually revived the dungeon crawler and not bardtales IV or will it be like Wasteland 2 underground ?

or will we get the "99 skeletons face you" and you go like WTF like in Bardstale I?

This looks interesting. I hope Frictional Games does not disappoint as usual. I'm looking forward to this.

I find that a bit harsh, disppoint as usual... don't think they ever really did. Penumbra sersies was really good, 1st Amnesia same, 2nd Amnesia (was by the Chinese room) could have been better.

But then those are my feelings

I am fine with the way things are. the game is excellent despite unrealistic expectations of both the devs and the players. As the game got bigger and more developed i understand and even accept the cuts required to make it work on consoles. Yet i also expect that at some future date you will release the HD textures we seen for the PC at least and let us play with the settings till we are happy with them.

I dont feel like i was lied to or misled and touched up screenshots and unrealistic videos are just part of marketing that we see from nearly every game or even product commercial.. (ive yet to get a burger that looks like one on TV in 42 years....)

what i am going to do is sit back and take this very very fine game for a ride and enjoy every last ounce of joy i can wring from it..

This, the game experience is simply brilliant, that is what counts in the end

Which is more frightening? That a plane can be hacked that easily, or that clowns like him are actually doing it?

more frighting is that he did it via the entertainment system !!

When it sued, United said such ticketing schemes violate its fare rules. For one thing, the tickets capture seats that will go unused, and an airline would have no way to sell those unused seats.

but you already sold them, if the person is using them or not does not mater I would say

United also argued that hidden-city ticketing can delay flights as gate agents await travelers who donít show up.

that makes more sense, so let travelers "sign out" mid way or maybe make correct ticket from A to B cheaper then the from A to C via B ticket ??

Dude I realize my comment was over the top but i'm just so confused. Every game I have ever been hardcore into has been ruined when i realized the amount of people cheating. Youtube reveals the hidden truth and its so frustrating. There are websites where you can pay actual money for software that allows you to cheat. I mean, I understand it. I understand why one might want to use video games to learn or advance their programming skills etc. But, don't shit on valve for trying to prevent this because there is a potential for abuse before said abuse actually is an issue.

I do get your point and I am not defending cheaters, but it will be abused, hacked accounts, childish developers who don't like your criticism, you name it. And you then have to talk to that same developer because Valve hides behind them and won't help you get access to your paid/bought game.

The bluesnews commentators are completely out of touch. I don't belive any of you actually play games. You all just like to complain about anything and everything. Valve makes an effort to kick douche bags off my servers and all you have to say is "im worried this power will be abused"? WTF is wrong with you? If Valve decides to start banning legit players then we can get upset. But any effort to prevent you from wall hacking or aim boting in the games I paid for is fan fucking tastic. Anyone that thinks any different is either part of the problem or should go back to ISIS. Get the fuck out of my games so I can enjoy them they way they are indented to be played.

But its not Valve banning, it's Valve letting the Developer Ban people's access to their bought games on Valve.

So I cheated on the online part of the game, fine, ban me from your online servers but banning me from my game on valve means also banning me fromm the offline part ?

and yes it will be abused amd miss used, that is how these things go
