I'd love to try Driveclub on my PS4 but Sony doesn't support my Logitech G27 anymore and I'm not interested in buying another wheel.

whine whine whine

Are you fucking kidding me? The PS4 doesn't support a G27?! Are they out of their collective minds?! Glad I didn't pick one up then. I had extreme disappointment earlier this year when I tried to use my G25 on a friends X360 (that I'm 'babysitting' while she's away) and found that it wasn't supported either! Yet it works flawless on the PS3 in GT5 Prologue. Go figure. I was so excited to get to use it in Forza4 and then found it wouldn't work. Punks. There's a USB port right on the front of the console! That should be the only price of admission. I have the console, the game and the wheel (a total of over $500 right there) and yet it still won't work! Blows my mind.

So, I reactivated my iRacing account, installed SoftTH to use my three LCD's (one 18" widescreen, my main 22" widescreen, and a 19" 4x3, yet works flawlessly!), and I'm in the zone again...fuck consoles...well, except for HALO...

Is there any reason why we can't just get a CryEngine-ified version of the original and D2? Everything of old and new in one...what D3 should have been...

yeah that 16 parts thing cutter brought up was a complete lie. as far as i know no one's said that anywhere, and i probably follow this game more closely than anyone here. my CID is in the 6000s out of i think half a million at this point. we're still getting the 50 missions promised, just packaged in a different way. number of episodes is really irrelevant..

My CID is #30143 plus I have a golden ticket, for whatever that's worth...maybe Happy Ending?

So not impressed, nVidia. Between the whole 'on-demand games' thing with your thrice-named Shield, releasing PhysX when anyone who actually uses it already has it and this...and my AMD fanboy-self is supposed to be concerned?

Meh.

GRID needs at LEAST a 10Mbps connection. That rules me out. In my area the best I can get is 1.5Mbps because AT&T refuses to update their copper DSL wiring to something better. (and no, I dont live in the boonies). The US can really suck for internet.

Damn, that sucks...I live in the middle of bumfuck nowhere FL and I haven't had a connection less that 3mbps since 2009 (I'm currently on a 40mbps cable connection through TimeWarner's redheaded stepchild, Brighthouse)...This service sounds like it would be all the rage in, like say, South Korea! Here? It's been tried and tried...and tried. I understand the sentiment...I really do. I mean, imagine just having to buy a nice tv in the future and having all released console games available by just plugging it into the network. Basically, they're trying to make games like movies-on-demand. The problem is that games require much more bandwidth and precision. I have no doubt that sometime in the future this will be common place (and I welcome my future 50-year old self (in 2028) to come back and say if it really happened) but for now? Eh, not quite there just yet...

From what I've heard, Star Citizen is an extremely modified version of CryEngine3. Think 'Dark Forces' vs 'Doom' type of modification. They're making it do things that I don't think Crytek even thought it could do. And all the original netcode has been thrown out...supposedly. This is just what I've observed through the many, many 'interviews' and 'behind the scenes' that they've done. I think Crytek's problem wasn't the engine itself but the way it handled the whole employee-payment scandal thing. People don't want to get attached to a sinking ship and for a while there, it certainly looked like Crytek wasn't going to pull out of the dive it was in... *shrugs*

Ugh. Is this Unity? Because is sure does look like a lot of other games graphics-wise. And I'm not saying that every project has to have killer 'Crysis' level graphics out of the gate but seeing how the original Crysis is now nearly 8 years old, it couldn't hurt and wouldn't be all that hard to do. The Unity Engine is capable in the right hands. I get the whole gameplay over graphics thing, I do. And for some games it works wonders and is hardly an issue (like Minecraft, which runs like shit yet looks like something out of an Amiga). But just by going on what you see in the trailer video, it doesn't look that compelling. EVE does the same thing and that has some seriously pretty graphics. Hell, if they made it even the level of Freespace2 or Freelancer/Starlancer, I'd be ok with it. But I don't see those gameplay mechanics at work here, sorry to say. Maybe it's good and I might give it a go, just to say I tried it but I don't have high hopes.

You know, it's 2015 and this industry seems to have just given up on innovating. I want to be BLOWN AWAY like I used to be when I was younger. When I saw X: BTF for the first time or when I saw the previews for what the 'Ultra64' could do. Or when I went into an arcade and came out broke and wishing I had unlimited time and money to play those draw-dropping games inside. I want the industry that gave us the 3D Accelerator revolution! That was a magical time, back in the mid-90's. The gaming industry seems to be nothing like it's former self, just taking tiny steps, giving us the same thing over and over with maybe one thing just a tad bit better here and there. That makes me such a freakin' sad panda...

Your condition is called being an insecure retard, dude. Luckily there's a cure. It involves growing a PHAT pair of BALLZ, an odd sense of humor and just telling it like it is. Look at me. I'm a happy like it is teller, though many people may not really wanna hear it and I know I'm often times about as popular as a popped hemorrhoid vein. Well... *shrug*. Who gives a flying fuck? It's entertaining as all LULZ0rC0a5t3r hell to be unpopular instead of a lemming sheeple.

No, it's called 'Writer's Block', jackass. I just finished a two month stint of writing technical manuals and guides and I'm having a hard time re-adjusting my writing style from that to casual, which, btw, happens to a lot of tech manual writers. As for the rest of that gibberish, I have only to say, 'Welcome to my ignore filter! Enjoy!'

I didn't say anything in contrary to your opinion, as your post wasn't clear who you were talking to or what you were actual arguing.

You seemed to be defending those that preordered with your post, which seemed in direct contradiction to your "Fuck Rockstar" post from before. But as you said you are having trouble putting thoughts to words, so I'll just assume it's more to do with being overly emotional over the topic.

How dare you argue with logic and a calm demeanor! I...I...actually have nothing to counter that. Next time, Krovven, NEXT TIME!!! *slams desk*

There's no reason to do that these days though, since AMD can't seem to compete, and nVidia is constantly forcing them to drop their prices.

Psh, bite your tongue! There are ATI/AMD fanboys here...I know because I'm one of them. AMD might not be able to compete CPU-wise, but their videocards still give Team Green a run for their money, no doubt. I'm sure a lot of Radeon users would agree. My HD7850 easily stands up to today's games, even AC: Unity, with only some minor ticks down on the ol' graphics slider...

Aside from several people already on ignore, the majority of this thread seems to have no problem with this delay. So not sure what you are going off about this time.

Didn't last time you say you you were done, you had deleted your Social Club account and cancelled your preorder and weren't interested in this anymore because of the last delay?

Move on, stay excited, but leave the drama in your head.

Right on three counts. I am done, I deleted my RSC account (or rather, uninstalled it and it now lays dormant) and cancelled my pre-order (the very next day actually). I'm still interested in the game, obviously, and will be. And I'm not bringing 'drama', I'm giving my opinion. Because it doesn't line up with yours doesn't mean it's dramatic bullshit. That statement proves that you're only interested hearing things that you deem worthy, which proves my point.

I give up. You know, it's pretty jerkish to make someone feel bad and bully them just because they're excited about a game coming out and disappointed that they delay it. So what? How does that hurt you in any way? I got lambasted last delay for going off the chain a little about it and all I could think was what the fuck does that have to do with you? Congratulations, you wait for reviews, you wait for word of mouth. I can GUARANTEE there's something that you DON'T wait for, something that you just can't wait to get your hands on and when that something (whatever it may be) gets delayed, you get upset. No one is immune and if they say they are, they're lying to themselves! It's like some of you get off on giving those of us who are looking forward to this game a hard time...and it's sickening...

Well, think about it. What's the worst that could happen? Yeah, you could be sued but if they aren't in the U.S., that's going to be hard to do. Arrested? No. Police have better things to do. This would be considered a 'civil matter' even though it is theft. This reminds me of the frauds that mark Youtube videos for copyright strikes just to get a day or so of ad funds out of it before it's rejected. Fucking bottom-feeders...

These Minecraft-alikes, like Planet Explorers, are really burning me out. Almost like the RTS rush of the mid-90's and the WW2 shooter clones of the late 90's and early 2000's, these rogue-like survival games are becoming one big nightmarish mishmash of half-baked ideas and barely functional gameplay. I just spent the better part of 10 hours going through the latest versions of The Long Dark, Salt, Stranded Deep and Masterspace. Ugh. After that last one, I half expected to hear Jim Sterling's caw in my ear for how 'squirty' it was (as in 'squirty shit!').

Except for The Long Dark, they ALL need more time in the development oven. TLD is at least playable, in a Beta-Minecraft type of way. The core is there and now it's just time to bolt on the quarter-panels, hood and doors, so to speak. I really like that they've implemented a 'animals don't attack wussified-mode' for those of us that like our exploring without a side of wolf fangs to the jugular. Takes the suspense out of it, though, for the most part. There just isn't that much to go for other than trying to keep from freezing (which isn't that hard unless you try hard to fuck up) and keep your backpack weight to a minimum less you become 'Encumbered'. I'm still trying to figure out the whole 'End Game'-point to it. Is there one yet? Or am I just roaming around aimlessly? Certainly seems that way. And, thank you, Cutter, for letting me know about the newer version. The changes are substantial from when I had played last (version 1.36 versus version 2.00 now...2.00? Seems rather odd for an alpha to have a version 2.00, no?)

I haven't gotten into Planet Explorers or Starforge (I think that's the name of it) at all yet and from what I've been hearing, development on both seems to have slowed considerably, if not outright stopped altogether. A shame, they had promise, but not surprising when it comes to these kinds of 'games'...

*sigh*

No it's not, otherwise they would have called it an "open beta". Never once anywhere did anybody say there would be a free open beta. It's public because you, the public, can buy and play the game that is not exclusive to kickstarter backers.

You're BOTH wrong, it says 'Pubic Beta' so I guess they're making a character creator with various shaving options? I dunno... *shrugs*

I tried the first alpha release when it came out and my system ran it like a 486 running Quake2. Seriously, that's exactly what it felt like. I had to set all my options down to nil and even then, it stuttered and sucked all my RAM. Granted, my system is due an upgrade or two but still...I can play just about everything else (including Dragon Age: Inquisition, which I think is one of the most system straining games out there right now) with very little effort.

System: i5-750, HD7850/1GB, 6GB RAM

Let me translate this for those that don't really know:

"1C Game Studios announces that development is underway on IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Moscow, the long-rumored next installment in their combat flight simulation series."

"1C Game Studios realized that they needed another way to energize the dwindling base of paying patrons and restock the cash reserves after doing fuck-all with the near limitless material as The Battle For Stalingrad. To this end, they are announcing, on-the-sly, The Battle of Moscow, to make it look like they are begrudgingly putting information out there against their best wishes when, in fact, this was planned well in advance, once 1C realized the money train wasn't going to carry them to the CokeWhore Paradise they originally thought it would."

Bitter? Nah, what makes you say that?

Holy crap could this Impact Winter game be ripping off anymore people? Just looking at their store page to start they're ripping off The Day After Tomorrow, Fallout, The Long Dark, and probably several other things too. It's going to suck.

Like how every fantasy RPG ever made rips off Tolkien? Or how Dying Light, L4D, DayZ, etc. ripped off Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later?

Besides, I thought you liked survival games that didn't include zombies?

I like the Long Dark. It's original for what it is. I don't mind derivative. After all, there's nothing new under the sun, but that's just straight up stealing in this case.

I haven't played The Long Dark since it's 1.3x version, I assume it's gotten better? The wolves and constant calorie count totally turned me off to it and I haven't played it since. Maybe I should take another look...
