My average experience in a game today is to install it.
You are not the only one!
I have all my Steam games installed updated ready to rock and roll, and I've played them like 2 hrs total in the past 2 weeks.
By the time I get to play them the graphics will be outdated!

4k is utterly worthless on a tv unless you're about a foot away or its 100", so don't expect that to matter much. On monitors sure, but not tvs.

4K? They can't even comfortably hit 1080p with these new consoles. Even the PS4 has problems doing it in single player content when the machine has to worry about things like AI. I suspect 4K video content will be another story though (not that there is much of that right now either).

Even modern PCs struggle to game at 4K. It will probably be a year before we get decent 4K monitors and graphics cards beefy enough to push them that don't require enough electricity to power a third world nation.
My point was that within the next 5-10 years where will these consoles be in terms of performance if they are having issues running games on today's standard resolution.
Sony and Microsoft made these consoles to last nearly 10 years, but I am having a really hard seeing that happen with the current hardware specs these machines have.
Prime example is above here with the Xbone having trouble running a game that uses an ancient engine at 1080p resolution.

Of course there is not much in terms of 4k content right now but do you think this will be the case in 5 years?

I think it will matter a lot more than 3D matters, but we will see how it shapes up to be in the next few years.
I don't believe 1080p is the resolution that will stick around for the next 5-10 years.

By the time the devs figure out how to squeeze enough power out of these machines to run 1080p content at 60fps the 4k TVs will be standard

I won't look into upgrading until I get a game that doesn't run well on my system, but nothing on the horizon that is going to do that.
Last I've heard Elite Dangerous runs pretty well on most PCs as well.

Just spend it on upgrading your PC instead, it will be money much better spent imo.

Yeah, I could see maybe a video card and power supply...

In reality, it'll go into savings, and maybe a trip next year...


Much better plan.
Unless you need a new vid card right now you are better off in saving I think.

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."

Don't you dare !!

It was slower and less useful to create classes than in-game, and it never gave the stats you wanted to see or presented them in a way you wanted to view them.
Yeahh but did you see the fish Ai in Ghost? That was some amazing shit man.

I've been using unblockus for a while but recently switched to https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ because they are cheaper.

They appear to be pretty good, how is bandwidth over these services? Can they max out a good Internet connection (55Mbit)?

It's rather bullshit that their 6 month deal is just a few bucks cheaper than their 12 month one. I'm sure I'm supposed to think that the 12 month deal is great value but it just looks like they've inflated the 6 month one to trick us.
They've had a sale during the holidays, the 12 months sub was around $20 iirc.
I am only using it for Netflix and it works fine, the stream kicks up to 1080p usually shortly after I start a movie.
I don't think you can max out your connection but for streaming media like Netflix or Pandora it works fine.
I did not try to stream with multiple devices at the same time, and I did have some bad days when Netflix disconnected but it was very rare and not a usual thing.
I think it had more to do with my actual internet connection then the VPN service.
I have the DNS set in the Playstation 3 setting not at the router level.
THere are a few TV shows on Netflix Canada that my wife likes to watch so the iPad is connected to the CDN Netflix and the PS3 is on the US, because usually when we sit down to watch a movie together the US has a better selection.

News Comments > StarDrive 2 Announced
4. Re: StarDrive 2 Announced Feb 26, 2014, 10:53 SpectralMeat
 
There was also a tons of complaints on the forum about the dev did not complete the game as some promised features were not implemented, he called the game feature complete and moved onto other things (obviously working on SD2)
However he was still putting out patches for StarDrive so not sure why all the outcry.
I believe this is a 1 man show type developer.
Not sure if the dev team grew for SD2 or if it is still just him.

Can't you login to Steam via VPN and get it unlocked?

I'm a PC gamer that can tinker a bit.. but no idea how this VPN trick works and I'm afraid that if I try it something happens with my connection.. and without internet, one cannot breathe.
It is not that complicated. However I am not sure how well Steam handles this sort of thing.
All it does is redirects your IP so Steam thinks you are in the US so the game gets unlocked, then you reset the IP to your homeland again and can play the game.
I use a VPN for Netflix so I can access US movies as the CDN Netflix sucks balls to say the least.

Edit: I forgot most paid VPN services offer a free trial and a very detailed explanation on their website with step by step instructions on how to set everything up.
My only worry is will Steam find this legal or will they flag your account. You may want to do some research on it.
I know a lot of people are doing this to unlock games early.

Any news of a freelook mode (ability?) inside of the cockpit?
Elite Dangerous has that "feature"

As for X-Rebirth at least they are working on the game and not on a DLC or next title.

Is there really a market for this sort of game?
I mean I am getting spammed on facebook with all sorts of browser strategy games.
Ubi should just stick with making normal games none of this free to play browser game non sense.
