Wonder why this would need a greenlight campaign, I thought the first was considered a wild success. Also worth noting, it is stuff like this that makes Indy cool. Totally fresh idea, the first I'm speaking of.

So what's the point here?

Lets say she did get death threats. What does that have to do with gaming in general? So she tapped a nerve of a psychotic person, that is why you don't put yourself out there so easily, putting a target on yourself. I am so protective of what I say when my real name is being used and well I still don't threaten people with my handle, but again, surprise, she upset a psycho. There is a connect the dots thing here.

So by someone doing that means she's right and gamers wrong? Is that the game they are trying to play? I dunno, because I am not going to read this shit.

There are no innocents in MMO's, you're guilty just playing them.

If I can have everything CBS ever done, $6 a month isn't bad.

Yep. There are quite a few shows from CBS that are not available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu. Include them all and we'll see.

The deal to me with any of this is the full back catalog at any time. To me that has a real value and I never need 50 stations let alone 100 let alone 500. Give me 10 stations with full backlogs, even if it came out to the same cost I have today, overall the value would be better to me.

Some of that VA is terrible, what were they thinking with the Bull one?

Yeah, Freddie did a good job with James Vega, but I don't really like him for the Bull either. He actually does a good job acting as it's pretty different from the way he usually sounds, but it just seems so off for that character.

Oh well. Still looking forward to this.

First thing I noticed to, the Qunari doesn't sound or act right. My nephew a huge fan of the series and loves the Qunari, I wonder what he'll think about the joking side of a Q. I thought the draw was the dry logic they used.

The dev pc play-through the other day looks a lot better than this, this trailer seems fairly low quality.

If CBS or any network/cable want to do this, imo they have to have their entire existance of content available (or almost all or very soon after release), then it becomes a deal. If I can have everything CBS ever done, $6 a month isn't bad.

Do the maths:
CBS/ABC/NBC/FOX = $6 each total $24
HBO = $12
ESPN = $15
Throw in a few more cable networks at $5 each.

$60'ish and have the entire catalog at my finger tips near commercial free. That saves me $40 today, less commericals and the entire catalog and not a schedule the build for me.

You guys do know that with every sexual comment you make, you justify everything the Anita Sarkeesian's of the world are saying, right?

Sure if you want to make her God. We can be whatever we want within the law, there are plenty of women libers out there, whatevers. You give her the power when you stop to listen to it. Move along, it's just another person with a view on how the world should be and SURPRISE to their benefit. Give me a person that pictures a world in which they get nothing from it and then you'll have my attention.

Of course the assholes making Hatred are fascists. Typical extreme-right, tiny-dicked, powerless losers with delusions of grandeur wanting to take out their frustrations on the world around them, never once realizing they're the entire source of their own problems.

On the plus side, I expect these guys to be out of business soon. This game looks like it cost some cash to make, and I don't expect it to sell much. Honestly, who's the market for stuff like this? It seems very niche, which means not a lot of sales.

Market game players that like to kill things. Seems like there are plenty of those.

Calling them Nazi's is totally backwards, this is anti-system. Nazi's were all about system, their system, sort of like the ole USA is today. This is anti-society, nothing nazi about it at all imo.

Yeah, but I don't think that gamers like to kill just for killing. When you're killing Nazis in Wolfenstein (one of the more recent bloody games) you're doing it to save the world, you are fighting against soldiers with weapons who are threatening to kill millions of people. It's justified. You're not killing unarmed innocents.

Most soldiers don't join the military because enjoy the killing, they join for camaraderie, a paying job, technical education, to travel the world, respect, etc. There are actually soldiers that enjoy killing, but they are very few in number.

To be honest it seems like you are going down the road to "it's more than pixels", it is all just fantasy. Playing a serial killer or whatever, it is fantasy. Literature and movies haven't struggled in these spaces in a long time now.

And about AI work... why do all that when people are still buying the rudimentarty stuff? Someone is going to have to make (an Indy) something that knocks our socks off AI wise, to the point we won't accept less to force the rest to move forward.

Sadly the game industry doesn't really work that way. We're 5+ years on from Red Dead Redemption, and the horses in today's games are a million times shittier. Same for facial features since LA Noire, etc.

Someone makes a cool feature, but it doesn't get adopted.

So someone could make a killer AI, and then all the other devs would be "eh, 4 lines of If/Then statements (aka the Creative Assembly way of making AI) will be fine."

I guess the horses didn't "knock the socks off", I'm talking something like 3D Acel, like Mouselook etc, where the game is simply changed. We do have many examples of something smaller in the past being better than the future that goes unnoticed as the new standard. Commando's HL2, Enemy AI Fear 1, etc.

Oh yeah and it has to sell!

If you haven't noticed the current gen consoles came out as abortions, woefully underpowered to the point it didn't make a blip on our pc specs.

This always bugs me. Yes, these consoles can't touch the performance of a gaming PC. But using the PS4 as an example, you do realize that Sony needs to put together hardware and sell it for $400 and still make a profit? What mistake did they make in the design? What should they have done instead that could still match that price point?


Historically it's a blunder. All consoles prior were near top pc spec or beyond pc spec at release. These were released middle road pc's. I get your point, but at the same time, this gen was different from the past. We are not really moving all that forward because of it.

Let's clarify something upfront. Nobody is flipping their $#it because the specs are too high. I'm sure plenty of people meet and/or greatly exceed these specs. The issue is that given the requirements, we're not seeing a marked improvement in graphics and/or gameplay in many of these new games.

where are the groundbreaking new AI algorithms? Where are the fully destructible physics? Where are the ultra high-res textures? Where is the incredible lossless audio? What are these requirements for if I don't see any of this in games yet?

Could also be in load times as well.

Same, dudes my fav. Also helps I have a client that sounds exactly like him so I picture this dude as Mac, hope I never see a pic of Mac, lol.

I do base a little on Mac's conclusion.

Yeah well, who the fuck does code optimization anyway right? We can just throw more hardware at it!! Take that shitty code!

We wanted this, it was the only benefit the new consoles gave pc gamers.

Indeed. Until you remember that the game is coming out on PS3 and Xbox360. How much memory does the Xbox360 have again???

Lets hope current gen and pc's have some type of advantage.
