News Comments > Facebook Acquires Oculus, Oculus Rift Minecraft Cancelled

I just don't get it. This came completely out of left field and even seeing it happen I can't believe it would. This seems like one of the most knee-jerk purchases I have ever seen in the corporate world. It makes even less sense then the AOL/Time Warner merger, and we all know how well that went.

I can see Facebook wanting to go the Google route and expand into other areas and markets, but to go so far out of your wheelhouse is just idiotic. At least with Google most of the properties they bought you could see somehow being incorporated into their portfolio somewhere.

I would imagine the Oculus people were sweet talked into selling, and I can sort of understand that, I just don't see it from Facebooks perspective. Does Zuckerberg have the ability to make these decisions solo or is he beholden to a board of directors or something now that they are public? They tried doing a Facebook phone and even that was a disaster, and that is something everyone uses Facebook on already.

If Carmack was in the know about this I doubt he would have supported it, what with his own experience in relinquishing control to a higher power. This also seems like a missed opportunity for Google, in my opinion the melding of Glass and VR opens the door to some pretty neat applications and they are well on the way with Glass already.

So I know what a template is, but what is it in regards to this game, kind of confusing?

While death threats and attacks on his family are not ok, this guy still doesn't seem to get why things happened the way they did.

Also the game he is making about internet toxicity sounds 'super fun'.

The only real IMAX theater I have been to is in the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. I have seen several movies there, most of them specifically made for it, while growing up and taking class trips there.

The first time I went to an 'IMAX' theater other than that, it was just a regular theater with the screen slightly bigger and curved a small fraction. It was crap.

A real IMAX screen like the one in the Franklin Institute is supposed to surround you all over, up, down, left, right. In the last 5-10 years they have been showing feature films there on occasion, I would love to see a proper one there, now that is something you can't get at home. The feeling of motion you get from the immersion is incredible.

Perhaps the panel should be about being a responsible adult in the media when in such a prominent position (should really be always but that is asking a lot). Then maybe we would have less of these instigators who cry foul when someone takes the bait.

They need to just stop it with the stretch goals, it does no one any good at this point. The projects success threatens to be its failure.

Just from looking at today and yesterday the "Starbound Beta Details" and from yesterday the "DICE pauses all future products". There is probably more. Basically any story that links to previous stories on bluesnews.com excluding the "read more" link.

It seems like 3D Dot Game Heroes filled this niche years ago, and still looks better. Not sure if this will find a market.

WoW ruined all potentially good MMOs. WoW taught publishers what the mass market really wants is cartoon graphics that run good on sub-$1000 PCs, and everything handed to them on a silver platter in-game.

Games should be another job after all, with hours long farms of spawns shared by everyone and corpse runs.

WoW made MMOs bearable.

I rest my case.

God forbid people want to have fun playing a 'game'. It certainly isn't Blizzard's fault no game has managed to steal away all their users, it is the fault of the other developers. Unless a vast majority of your friends are going to move with you to a different MMO, it probably isn't going to stand the test of time. It has to appeal to a vast audience, it is the very nature of an MMO, at least, if you want an ambitious Triple A MMO. The hardcore gamer base just doesn't bring in the money to support such an costly undertaking, so it must cater to both segments of the population. That is something that WoW did perfectly in the very beginning.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Beta Changes
15. Re: Battlefield 4 Beta Changes Oct 17, 2013, 08:54 fujiJuice
 
I agree that BF4 doesn't look a whole lot different than BF3, I didn't expect it to either, I mean BF3 is already an incredible looking game. However with the limited time I played the BF4 beta, it certainly felt different.

It is hard to describe, but in Bad Company 2, I was pretty good, in BF3 I was/am terrible. Something about the way moving and shooting feels in the game. Now I know they are two different franchises, but BF4 felt a little more like BC2 than BF3. I consider that a great improvement, even though the beta ran terrible on my computer, I was able to hold my own and get some really satisfying kills. That is what is important to me in the end, if I am not able to kill anyone, like in BF3, than my interest fades, and frustration rises.

I don't know if anyone else had the same feeling.

News Comments > Steam Hardware Prototype Details
38. Re: Steam Hardware Prototype Details Oct 5, 2013, 09:13 fujiJuice
 
I think many of you are forgetting this is just a prototype. Straight from the information on Steam.

"If you guys are delivering an OS to hardware manufacturers, why is Valve also making its own box?

We're conducting a beta of the overall Steam living-room experience, so we needed to build prototype hardware on which to run tests. At Valve we always rely on real-world testing as part of our design process. The specific machine we're testing is designed for users who want the most control possible over their hardware. Other boxes will optimize for size, price, quietness, or other factors."

This is a joke right? Why not just play on a console...what is wrong with you?

Maybe he likes to play the games he buys, the way he wants, absolutely nothing wrong with that. If he enjoys the controller, and has a gaming PC, I see know reason to get it on console. Smaller maps, poor graphics, and a more horrible online player base, something would be wrong with him if he didn't get it on PC.

News Comments > Steam Controller Announced
64. Re: Steam Controller Announced Sep 28, 2013, 10:06 fujiJuice
 
I think people are jumping to way too many conclusions with nothing to go on but a few paragraphs and a 3D rendering. I will wait to pass judgement on an entirely new and unique design of a controller, from a PC oriented company, until it is in my hands for a while. Pictures of it are worthless in terms of how it will control, perform, or feel.

It seems like Valve is attempting to build a bridge across the gap between consoles and PC's. The bridge they are building is completely optional, no one is forcing you to use it. They are a game company after all, and despite your feelings, PC's and consoles both play games.

As for Valve abandoning their games, they aren't. I'm sure the team responsible for programming an OS or designing hardware, is not the same team that would design games or build levels.

It's an alpha, a test, and it came with a shit ton of disclaimers saying as much. If you find a bug, report it in the appropriate section of the forums...that is the point of the release.

omg how many times & disclaimers do they have to make and people STILL bitch about it...
Parias wrote on Aug 30, 2013, 15:06:
You completely missed the point of this release.
I'm well aware of all the disclaimers but my point still stands. We're talking about established middleware - CryEngine 3 - and a release consisting of a single room. If ladders aren't functioning properly then they shouldn't have been included.

The reality is that they can put out as many disclaimers as they want but their work is inevitably going to be judged by it. As I said, I'm still very much looking forward to this game (that much is obvious as I've paid to support it) - my point is just that this was rushed out and there wasn't any need for it to be. There is nothing unreasonable about pointing out the issues I encountered.

I disagree. Anyone judging this negatively, based on performance or glitches, isn't understanding the point. Now if you want to be negative about the ship design, internal layout or art style, that would serve a purpose. All this is, is a way for people to take an early, pre-alpha look at the ships they payed hundreds of dollars for. As for rushing, or removing things, those two scenarios do not exist, it is an "extremely early pre-alpha build", once you wait to polish it up, it is no longer an "extremely early pre-alpha build" by definition.

Edit: Changed alpha to pre-alpha

Defiance, to my surprise, actually had some of the most solid gunplay I've ever encountered in an MMO. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy anything else, but it was fun for a day.

News Comments > John Carmack Joins Oculus VR
83. Re: John Carmack Joins Oculus VR Aug 7, 2013, 22:39 fujiJuice
 
I wouldn't have an issue wearing it in front of my wife, however I would be extremely hesitant to wear it around strangers, just because you have no idea what is going on outside the VR. I don't foresee that situation arising much though, at least for me.

As for Carmack, I feel bad for him sometimes, it seems like as the biggest name within id, he gets saddled with every complaint about their games. Things that he probably took no part in the decision making process of, I just imagine him in a room starring at code all day. I don't doubt that he loves games and programming, and I hope he is able to do what he does best in this new position, coding ground-breaking tech. He also seems like a cool guy, considering all he has done it doesn't seem like he lets it go to his head.
