@nin & Cutter

Here's Brian and Jimmy discussing whether Brian is colluding on the rap videos. They also talk about the process of making them, and who does it.

HA! That's funny as hell! Looks like he's got quite the sense of humor about it...


Brian Williams ability to deadpan is flawless.

He's always excellent on his Daily Show appearances, too.

Well, I wasn't expecting a sort of Dragon Age Inquisition.

Looks pretty hackneyed and stilted to me.

NO ONE expects the Dragon Age Inquisition!

Guardian and Washington Post win Pulitzer prize for NSA revelations.

Good on them. The sad thing is that if Greenwald left Brazil to come to the USA to receive his award, he'd be arrested and thrown in jail for being a journalist. I really have no confidence in my own government to leave the man alone.

He came to the US a few days ago.

Not sure what to make of Harmonix. One says yes, one says no.


I got tired of Rock Band and other games like it. Guitars, drums, and mic collecting dust for some time now....I don't have (nor want) the time to put into it to get to the higher levels....it was more of a "have friends over and mess around" sort of thing.

Rocksmith is a pretty cool replacement, and it gets you using a real guitar. The cable is finicky sometimes, but it's pretty neat.

I only ever "upgraded" from Win2k to WinPlayschool because one of the late betas of Supreme Commander finally blocked Win2k users in a way that I couldn't circumvent easily. It made me sad.

2 years is more than enough for a game of this size and caliber. As per usual this is typical Obsidian mismanagement again with production schedules. I'm sure they made a fuckton of money on South Park, so they should hire additional resources if needed to finish this. They're already 7 months over schedule. This is just one more reason I'm done with crowdsourcing. Schedules and time are very important in my books. So is keeping your word. If someone says they're going to do something by XYZ then the better do it or don't say it at all. Go tell your boss that whatever project he has you on you're going to delay it 6-12 months and see what his response is.

Good job ranting about a completely different developer than is involved here...

Laugh2 That's our Cutter.

Not to mention, at best, you're up scaling a 2K image.

Yeah it will be a while before we see native 4k movies, by that time the 4k TVs will come down in price also.
If the 4k trend catches on. If not, 4k will be the new 3D

Because it's an upgrade of an existing technology, and not a new one like 3D, I'm sure eventually it will be the standard. It's just a matter of how long it will take. Given how satisfied people are with 1080P, it'll probably be a good decade before 4K TVs are the majority.

Especially considering how only game consoles and Blu-Ray even do 1080p. Broadcast and cable TV top out at 720p/1080i. Netflix does 1080p, but it's so compressed that it's not really any better. I imagine their 4k will be the same.

While I applaud the idea, how is that underpowered piece of crap going to emulate a 360? There just doesn't seem to be enough sheer raw power to do it (properly.)

They mentioned 'PlayStation Now', so I think their plan is probably to emulate it on the Cloud or whatever.

But then why emulate it? Why not just put reams of 360s in your CLOUD MAJICS COMPJUTER and stream everything off that?

Because they don't want to pay a thousand full-time workers to go around changing out the dead 360s? I don't know.

That would create horrible lag.

I have to agree with Creston, I don't see how they have the power to emulate this accurately on the XB1. They might be able to do a hack job that requires less resources, but there will be bugs. This article about emulating an SNES is a good primer about the issues involved.

Well, that's how Sony intends to do it. That's why they bought Gaikai or whatever cloud gaming company. There's no way the XBOne can emulate the 360, and they specifically referenced Sony's cloud gaming solution, soooooo. Draw your own conclusions.

How is this a good business decision? I thought gaming companies made tons of money banning accounts and getting people to buy new ones? Interesting. BTW FYI this post is Trolling Free.

I was going to ask the same thing. I dont think cheaters should be allowed to play the game in any fashion. This is cutting them some serious slack. Also while this sounds fun on paper, I have trouble believing that this system is 100% fullproof. There will be a lot of false positives and regular people will get stuck in these cheat servers.

So you would rather the false positives be banned from the game entirely? Confused!

I hope what he means is that i could put any PS2 disc in and play it on the PS4 with a software emulator... hopefully that's the case.

It should be entirely possible (PS2 and PS1 can easily be emulated with that hardware), but it runs counter to Sony's interests. Why let you do that when they can sell you the games all over again on the PSN?

If/when they do another UT, they need to look back at what made the earlier games fun. I've tried 2-3 times now to play Black, and always lose interest. 99 was the best, and 2003/2004 were fair, but still felt like they were missing something...


U2:XMP was the best. Best! Of course, Epic wasn't the one that made that one.

I'm not usually a huge fan of point and clicks (well, not since the early nineties), but the Longest Journey series is well worth a look.

Unfortunately, it's a trilogy and the 3rd game hasn't been made (and it's unsure if it will at the moment). The 2nd game has a hell of a cliff hanger so if you're a completionist, ignore the previous advice to buy...

Dreamfall Chapters

Well, it was funded, so it ought to be in the works.

As far as I can tell Logitech took a hit in quality in the past few years. I have a late model G5 (which admittedly I've been using for a long time) suffering from the poor cord connection that apparently plagues many of their corded mice. The mousewheel has lost a lot of tactility, one of the sensitivity change buttons has always been poor to respond, and I hate that it doesn't store DPI setting onboard. Real comfortable, though. Their keyboard selection has been lackluster and they haven't released a worthwhile set of speakers in ages; Z5500 was the crown jewel of PC-specific speakers and they never followed it up.

I've been looking toward finally getting a new mouse and have been eyeballing Cooler Master stuff. Couldn't be happier with the CM keyboard I've been using, and their peripherals tend to be a bit cheaper than the competition.

I love my G700s from Logitech, though their mice do seem to have a left-mouse-button-dies-after-two-years problem lately. On the other hand, they have a three year warranty. So give them a call and a day later, brand new mouse. Hurray! They gave me a brand new G700s to replace my G700, didn't require the old one be shipped back or anything.

I'm looking at the graphics in this game and I don't see much of a difference between dark souls 1 and dark souls 2. Then I watch the playthroughs and it plays like dark souls 1. Is there anything new in this game besides a different location and different enemies?

New story, new enemies, new location, new weapons, tweaks to the combat mechanics, tweaks to the multiplayer mechanics, tweaks to the spell mechanics... what do you want from a sequel?

Yeah I am upgrading my PC now too, but why in the heck would anyone spend or even expect to spend $3000 on a PC? A really sweet rig should not cost you more than 1200 and you get by for less if you have parts from your old PC that are still usable.

Because I got a huge bonus from work and if I didn't spend it, the miss's would. I took nothing from the PC I was replacing, so now we have two and that way, when there's a kid gaming on one PC, and another on the TV, I'm not stuck gaming on my phone! I bought it last summer:

i7-4770K
NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler
GeForce GTX 780 SC
MAXIMUS VI HERO MB
16GB PC3-19200
Silent Pro M2 850W Modular Power Supply
Chaser MK-I Case
27in Widescreen LED LCD w/ HDMI
840 Pro Series Solid State Drive SATA III, 256GB
Vengeance K70 Fully Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Black
G500s Laser Gaming Mouse
Two Win/X360 Gamepads

At the time, with the OS, and some warranty for a few of the parts, and taxes, it added up to just under $3000. And I'm in Canada so things be a bit more here than in the US.

That is pretty sexy. Nice build.

Moar HD space, though!

I'm kind of torn on which version to pick up. I want the PC version, but I don't want half the game spoiled for me by the time it comes out.

Time to decide if I keep my console preorder or just wait now :p

After spending 500 hours on Dark Souls 1... I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy it for both the PS3 and PC. I want to get in on the ground floor, man!
