Looks same ole same to me -- a standard Witcher game with Geralt as usual.

I like the IP, and I'm sure the game will be good, but I didn't see anything special. What is it you guys liked so much?

Yeah in that vid it's pretty much right along with the past offerings, other vids have looked more epic in look and game-play. Not that this is bad, to me it doesn't knock my socks off though.

I hope we can hot-key the radial, having to pause and pick isn't the most immersive system. I'd rather just press 1-0 to change my magic.

Agree Beamer. There are real qaulities to regular TV vs streaming. I pay the $$$ because I like it, I just don't want it to keep going up and up. I keep cutting when it hits that magical spot. So it's when they are basically offering me way to little for that spot is when I start to think real hard of OTA/Streaming only.

MS failure is now complete. They admit cloud = dedicated server. No magic, marketing spin. I do give them credit, that last time my CTO spoke he's still living by the "magic of the cloud" when speaking publicly. The all powerful Oz! Ohh!

Yeah that title surprised me too. Well the "cheaper" part at least. I was kinda assuming that it was a given that the next generation would be faster...

Could one imagine the backlash if it were slower. I'd say to them if they were thinking of doing that, don't, DO NOT. lol

If I only want a few channels a la carte why can't I have that? There's zero technical reason for it.


Zero technical reason, sure. How many channels do you want to choose from? As soon as you can go ala carte, a huge percentage of channels would die. When cable companies negotiate for a channel, say, ESPN, they have to pay for 30 OTHER channels as well or ESPN will say go fuck yourself.

Spot on. Basically ESPN, HBO, OTA and Netflix would be a very common setup. What would you expect to pay? Whatever that is, isn't enough for them to survive. They haven't been spending billions merging for a $25 spot.

Yeah but think about it, I'd like to abandonded:

Paying for power and having solar free-installed for me handle the job.

Depending on the size of the installation, there are many local, state and federal rebates and grants in the US that makes this possible as either a very low cost or almost wholly free install. This can be done, people have to stop being lazy asses and get informed about programs available to them in their area and what technology would suit their installation best.

For my area it's all free upfront, you pay 80% of your electricity bill today to pay it off 7-10 years and then you own it. Still very few jump at it and you can't get much more a sunny area then where I live. I don't totally understand why not, but I also don't trust door to door sales either by a 1/2 dozen solar salesmen. One reason I like what I have, there are no parts to break that I'd ever be on the hook for.

Cable offers me nothing that I can't get somewhere else.

53% seem to act as if they are stuck having to use it.

In the alpha you start at level 4 and you can only level to 8, so it's pretty limited. You can't really get a sense of what the story is.

How about how it is presented, that was more my wondering?

I didn't read NVidia was going to charge us less. Just perhaps cheaper for them to make. We'll see.

Yeah we can't help but think there is a loop hole here, NSA, hired 3rd Party no named MS. It's what they get when we are lied to, trust is hard to gain back.

I'd like to abandon my car payment, my mortgage, me cell phone, or at least be a lot less in cost.

It isn't surprising people want to abandon an expense, but why is it an expense? Because we want what they offer.

Now we know the people we are dealing with are shitheads and all, but there is a cost to all of this. Their service and maint, their overhead, studio fee's etc. It perhaps could be cheaper, then their employees will take another round of cutback.

Probably a more reasonable solution is we need jobs that pay better in general and have real room for cost of living increases.

OP and the like, what I read is "Do it the way we tell you and not the way you feel". It's capitalism and people are speaking with their dollars. Obviously there is a strong desire for a open world sandbox survival game, people are out sampling, trying to find what they are looking for, que the U2 song... Also they can buy 4 of these for the price of one AA, in hopes to land a good one. I personally find it fun trying out different builds with the one's I have chosen to support.

IMO big difference knowing and playing something in development vs a company thinking they have released a finished product that is all buggy and little to no support is coming our way.

In a busy city there's probably a profitable niche in being a place to unplug and disconnect, or for those who get irrationally angry at the sight of others using technology. That would need to be a ban on all screens and, somehow, ringtones.

I love those type... those that get irrationally angry when people use tech in their presence even if they aren't with them and are a total stranger. Totally a phenomenon and most that get angry don't even get it, that if they were able to witness others doing it from above, they would have a "aha" moment themselves. Some people are downright vicious. Some actually shoot people, to me it's an issue with them not the user.

Cafes don't want wifi users anymore, because they sit there for five hours nursing a bottle of fucking water. And they take up a table where they could also seat a family of 3 that wants to have lunch.

It surprises me it's taken them this long to finally do something about it. Panera is always full of wifi leechers, and you're standing there with 30 bucks worth of lunch, and you have no place to sit.

Right. And what we have here is a diversion, they blame the wrong thing in hopes that what their real goal is pans out. Why not just say "We need to move more butts through our doors to stay in business" imo that wins, because it's the truth and hey anyone with an ounce gets it. This isn't home, it's a business.

But blame electronics and blank stares and substitute it with other things that are anti-social, but classical.

After spending the last 2 hours in a 3 man group taking on missions and then the final alpha boss, I have to say that I am going to pre-order this. It's just a lot of fun. Reminds me of Borderlands playing co-op.

Does it have a story being acted out like BL's? Another part of BL's that I like is the over the top characters and how it all is easily followable by them talking to us in the top right as we continue to move and fight. I still credit that was the magic that is System Shock 2 back in the day. Telling the story as we continue to play, not stop get story, go play, stop get story. Does Destiny deliver its story in a BL fashion as well? And what is the term we used to describe story telling like this?

I wasn't impressed with BF4 at all, but something about the new Hardline is immensely fun and satisfying even if I'm stating so within the honeymoon period of beta.

My boy, who didn't seem to have much technical difficulty with BF4 said, this thing (the new one) is already better and more fun than BF4. He was pretty impressed.
