I'm kinda surprised nobody on Bluesnews is in on this game at all, it looks real good, and the Warhammer setting is right up nerd alley.

I'm not getting in on any other Kickstarters/Early Access games right now, but I'll definitely keep an eye on this.

I got my Wishlist/Follow tags on it... Backlog. I'm just about ready to put a halt on T.B. games, love them, but man I've played more TB game in the past 18 months vs 5 years of combined of yesteryear.

I think there are a lot of disappointed people out there because Far Cry 4 is not much of a blockbuster. Nice graphics and new area, but everything else is almost identical to 3.

"This War of Mine" is for troubled people to play. The entire design is for you to do very bad things. Helping others is not one of them. The designers are very sick people!

Fuck, now your doing a killer sell job on me...

Since it's pixels, I don't give a fuck what they do, it still ends up pixels.

At the same time if it is doing what I think about what it might, that is part of war and yet another good reason to not go to war unless totally inevitable.

This is one major reason why gov't is big and why business wants a small gov't. Never forget.

Every company wants a monopoly, that is what they want, it is natural for them to want that, having a monopoly is the ultimate way to maximize any companies profits. And because any company has a fiduciary responsibility to maximize shareholder profits. It is natural for any company to try to form a or gravitate towards some type of monopoly. And that is why the US has laws to prevent that type of thing, because we know it is inevitable.

Gamma? Now they are making up build names LOL? Cute game, but nothing to be taken seriously. I love space games, but like Starpoint Gemini better than this one. I am very disappointed in what they made, nothing like Elite.

Yeah I put hours into stream watching last night... not sure if those I was watching were bad, but it's watching paint dry just going from station to station trading. Will have to see how exciting it gets with populated quadrants. I'll need to seek out some videos showing that off.

He isn't only making a FPS game, he is doing things FPS games don't do. So not only dream big for having FPS in your Space Sim, but lets just have the best FSP game ever to. Everything best ever. Great American Video Game!

Who else is doing limb damage to this detail? A: No one. Your space sim is going to show them all up on how to do a FPS. Also you shot haphazardly in your space shit, you will damage systems and have to repair. Even the best FPS's don't do this. I don't know about you, I'm buying this for the best FPS experience ever, the Space Sim is a nice to have.

Remember this will be the best FPS game ever... Do you hear me FPS gamer? Send me your money.

Oh yeah on the movie, is that not like the best body dragging ever? Yes, yes it is.

Cut the cord 10 years ago and never looked back. Better for me better for the kids. There's so much to do that I only watch about an hour of TV a day on average anyway. Netflix is plenty.

TV=Netflix=Gaming=Entertainment

My guess is most here, their pc time eats up most of their viewing time.

That is why I would love to see the following:

Networks/Cable networks $5-10/mo stream all current and all catalog.
HBO $10-$15/mo stream all current and all catalog.
ESPN $10-$15/mo stream all current and catalog.
Disney $10-$15/mo stream all current and catalog.
Showtime $10 same...
Major Film Companies $10-$15 catalog after 12 months.

That can still add up, but the win is you have the entire catalog at your finger tips vs todays schedule only. That would be a fine gain for the viewer.

ABC-NBC-CBS-Fox $30.
HBO $15
Espn $15
Tnt $5
USA $5
$70.

Throw in a few Movie Studios.. back at $100, but much more of what you want to watch with this option.

You do not need quadcore procs for PC gaming, at least not yet:

Techspot
Far Cry 4 @ 1920x1200 with a GTX 980
i3 3220 2cores/4threads (3.3Ghz) = 76fps
i5 3470 4cores/4threads (3.2Ghz) = 80fps

What you do need is hyperthreading.

One game does not settle that score. I wouldn't want a new pc with a dual core, I doubt I'm alone.

Current Eula:

8. In-Game Advertising
The Game may incorporate technology (which may be provided by Frontier or third party service providers engaged by Frontier (each a "Dynamic Advertising Provider")) which enables advertising to be uploaded into the Game on your PC, and changed while the Game is being played on-line. In order that the Dynamic Advertising Provider is able to direct advertising appropriate to your Game and geographic region, as well as to the correct location within the computer game, certain non-personally identifiable data and information may be retrieved and retained by the Dynamic Advertising Provider including your I.P. address, geographic location, in-game position, and information concerning the appearance of advertising visible during your gameplay (for example, the length of time an item of advertising was visible, the dimensions of the advertisements). In addition, the Dynamic Advertising Provider may assign a unique identification number which is stored on your PC and which is used to monitor and calculate the number of views of dynamic advertising during gameplay. None of the information collected for this purpose including the identification number can be used to identify you.

The technology employed by Dynamic Advertising Providers may be located outside your country of residence (including outside of the European Union).

Where a Game incorporates dynamic advertising technology, the technology which serves the provision of dynamic in-game advertising is integrated within the Game. This means that if you do not want to receive dynamic advertising, you should only play the game when you are not connected to the Internet.

Those saying I can build a better one... lets see:

Low End Alien: $550

$285 for mb/same proc/4 gig ram/with Win 8.1
$70 for comparable VC, which would be 550TI.
$30 for a 500 gig HD
$40 for a slim case with power supply
Total $425 they are charging $549.
Yes cheaper. They do all the work where some can't, they want to make a profit...

Things you could improve upon with the difference between your cost and their system. Swap vc out +$60 for a 660 upgrade. +$60 moving to an i5 3330. +$40 for 4 gig more ram.

That would represent the lowest end PC I would consider building today. $585

But lets talk about more blatant Alien BS:
The difference between the low end i3 and the high i3 is $150, the only difference if 4 gig of ram which is $40, they charge you $150. $110 money grab. Uh huh.

The i5 is another $100 on top for a $70 difference in processor price.

The i7 if we compare that all the way back to the cheapest i3, you are looking at $155 for the proc upgrade i3 to an i7 and $40 for ram for a total of $195 more in HW cost, they charge you $350 for that $195. So imo to keep the margin the same and get better HW into the hands of gamers for $750 instead of $900.

I question the low game benches they give out, perhaps those are very friendly frame games. But new games with that dual core i3, vc and 4 gigs of ram. You will not be maxing the best games out there, you'll be well down the list of graphic options.

The minimum system I would build, mentioned above, that would be considerably better but still wouldn't max the newest games.

Their offering vs a PS4/Bone, I'd say the console are a notch stronger. My minimum spec vs PS4/Bone, we'd have it beat in cpu and proc by a notch each, probably 2 on the gfx card, ram equal.

Yeah I would be better building a system for my friend who can't. But if you can't find someone, I'd go buy an i5 tower with 8gb and 1tb for $400 and add the 660 for $130. Easy and and for the same price... better all around.

They should just add it back in and then take years to develop it. Coming Soon(tm).

For those that say, what's the big deal? That is the same question the Sim City team was asking and well not many were buying.

What were they thinking with that name: "Alpha?" That implies unfinished and unpolished. These are PC gamers were talking about here.

That being said, Forbes has an impression of the $549 model.
The entry-level Alienware Alpha costs $549, and includes a 500GB hard drive, 4GB of memory, an Intel INTC -0.97% Core i3 CPU, built-in wireless connectivity, and a modified Nvidia GTX 860M graphics card with 2GB of VRAM.
It sounds like they're doing a lot of things right with this. Here are some 1080P benchmarks:

Batman: Arkham Origins
FXAA High, All DirectX 11 Features Enabled, PhysX Normal = Average 65fps

Metro: Last Light Redux
Medium Quality, 4xAF, Tessellation Off = Average 58fps

BioShock Infinite
Very High Quality = Average 55fps

GRID Autosport
High Quality, 4xMSAA = Average 75fps

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition
Medium Quality, Normal Anti-aliasing = Average 66fps


Yeah that is actually not bad, most likely better than the big boy consoles.

The easy part imo is you can look right past it. Since it is dollars, one of my most guarded things in the world, again easy to hold on to and look past.

$549 is their cheapest and it's going to be low spec'd.

The literally won't tell you want Nvidia card they are using. $800 unit would be my minimum, but that is with a secretive Nvidia card. I know you can get 660's for around $130 which is amazing value, but I bet it is under that.

Their top of the line, again secretive Nvidia card, they say this about it: "Fully maxed; giving you all the console you will ever need."

Wow all the power I'll ever need, they are mind readers and can see the future!
