News Comments > Titanfall Patch Adds "Extreme" Frame Rate Support

And why didn't the game support them before?

The only thing I can think of is that the internal engine runs at a certain 'tick' rate, and any frame rate above that tick rate basically is wasted? Wasn't that how Carmack described the pointlessness of having higher and higher FPS on Quake etc, because the engine ran at 60 ticks per second?

But if that's the case, I doubt that they changed the tick rate of their engine...

Wuh??

I was just about to replay RDR, so may hold off. I'll definitely get it again for PC, though I may wait for a sale.

Tom 'I'm AT&T's Whore' Wheeler: "Right now, we don't have the authority to regulate the internet. The step we need to take to get that authority (classify internet as telcomm), I'm unwilling to take. BUT, I'm drafting rules in which we tell the guys who write me big fat checks: You have to be nice! If you don't, we'll use our regulatory power to force you to play nice!"

Dozens of illiterate politicians: Oh, okay. That's solved then!


Maybe we should just get all the civilians out of washington, then put a big fucking wall around it and cut all communications to it. It'd probably take the average politician at least ten years to realize he can no longer talk to the outside world.

I think I'll get the PS4 version, it comes with the original + expansion and they did some awesome UI stuff for the console versions.

Is that coming out on the same day?

News Comments > U.K. Sales Charts
1. Re: U.K. Sales Charts May 12, 2014, 11:04 Creston
 
‘Titanfall’ (-25%) returns to the No1 spot edging out ‘FIFA 14’ (-11%) by less than 400 sales.

Sigh Fewer than 400 sales.

Surprising to see Titanfall have such a strong tail, so to speak. I figured everyone who wanted it would snap it up the first few weeks, after which it would dwindle away.

They say they are hoping the community can participate in finding a solution

"because we really don't plan on spending any time, or God forbid any MONEY, on this."

requiring the National Security Agency (NSA) to receive approval from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court before seizing phone records.

Wow, so this entire bill basically says "Everything will stay the same, the NSA just has to get another form rubberstamped by the FISA 'court'."

Our fucking lawmakers in action. Golfclap

And in Japan they get ACTUAL 4G speeds, rather than the 3G LTE which the phone providers falsely call 4G, and to which the FCC just goes "Heh. You guys!"

Please disband the FCC as all it does is cost fucking money.

That was an often heard complaint when Win 8 came out, that PvZ wouldn't run full screen. It's pretty hilarious that that still hasn't been fixed.

I think they can. Tropico 4 was really good. I started playing that when Sim City turned into such a debacle, and it was excellent. (I stopped because I then bought the even more excellent Anno2070).

I'm quite looking forward to this.

EA horseshit with PvZ2 (everyone knew EA would fuck up Popcap) notwithstanding, PvZ is a fantastic game and getting it free is pretty awesome.

How many people would you estimate raid in WoW? Thousands? Millions?

It's hard to come by good numbers but looking here it looks like there are several hundred thousand in WoW who raid on the Normal or Heroic level (excluding the people who just queue for LFR or do Flex which doesn't really count.)

Plus that's just people who've raided in the last two tiers of content. If my guild is any indication there are a lot of people who haven't raided in MoP who are interested in Wildstar.

I think if they play their cards right they can get a player base big enough to sustain their game.

Yeah that's a seriously large number. I had no idea that many people were into it. If they cater well to that population, they should be able to keep this MMO afloat.
