He's buying high bitrate audio/video and then ripping to a lower bitrate (thus taking 25-40+ gig of data down to 5 gig)? Might as well stick with dvds if you're going to do that...

That's like buying a cd and then making 128 mp3s out of it...

Yep the videophiles are going nutso because streaming etc is destroying the finer details in which they are all about.

Need a good industry article about the state of the cloud and gaming and what beyond some basic saving has it done for us?

To me blu-ray discs didn't even exist until I knew for a fact that I could rip them. Discs... Discs are so 19th century. I rip my bought blurays to 1080p h.264 encodes sized about 5gb and have them sit on my NAS and stream them to my TV.. the future!.. And the future does not involve discs if I can help it

But wait, you are still buying/renting the disc to begin with. I can't see how you see buying a BR and using a player as archaic, you have to buy/rip/keep storage/make sure it's all working, etc. Not that what you do is a bad, but I see a very healthy counterpoint of someone just buying the disc and using a player. Simple.

Nothing in there shows any game boost performance. It talks about memory boosts, but we'll have to wait and see what it really means in real world gaming.

Welcome to the 1980s!

China has owned us for a very long time, and they have so thoroughly rooted our networks for more than a decade that the flip of a switch is the only step remaining.

They represent 1.3 trillion of a 17 trillion debt.

I hope and pray they flip the switch, it will be a huge win for the american worker. Flip it, we'll flip them off on the debt, jobs will instantly be needed in the states. Do it, because we should have never farmed out to commies in the first place. That was the whole reason not to do business with them. The Gov't was right on this one, but industry won out, cheap labor at the cost of our own.

Hey, It's all good! You keep on supporting the cunts on your site Blue!

Sincerely Fuck you.

Tyrant. Like we aren't allowed to have our own opinions. Look at yourself first, improve and then come back. I didn't get to read your removed comments, but if what I write hurts, too bad. I'm a critic and I don't give any game/genre a free pass.

We very well could be jaded gamers, the industry was somewhat like this prior to FPS/Mouselook. We get bored with the same ole. Quality VR can't get here fast enough.

I'd be all over 4K if....

Intel and NVidia could make HW to blast through 4K rez's with no sweat at a combined $600 between the two.

I wouldn't care about the TV end of it.

Everybody cares? Which is why this like countless products before it will fail in short order?

Yeah, that's why Blizzard has made an entire career doing this very thing. Nothing new, and doing it well.

Maybe you should consider getting off your lawn chair, and taking the red pill and wake up. Or have you become so old and jaded, you just prefer to bitch about everything video games, and not enjoy one of them?

I bitch extra loud at MMO's doing the same thing over and over. There is literally 1000 MMO's, most end up being way way too similar and grinding pastures sucks ass to me anymore. At least things like EQ Next and a few others are working toward building and creating user communities.

Hell I don't feel bad about it, going to MMO centric web sites, that is the main plea from the overall user base. Now are there exceptions? Certainly. Still many thousands love MMO's, but a lot I think it is fair to say have been turned off by the lack of anything different happening.

Well please ask questions and let us answer...

Does it do anything new? No. (You agree)

Who cares? I do, for me to play a MMO it now has to do something very new.

Is it fun? Lots of games are. Most are less than $60/$15.

Fun isn't hard to find these days in video games. Something new definitely is hard to find in MMO's. Something new isn't hard to find in the Indy scene at under $25.

One noted that this has been in the oven for 9 years, get that. But I can only judge based on where we are now at release.

I like how these peasants see a screenshot and immediately dismiss it as a WoW clone. It plays nothing like WoW. Peasants.

There going to need the peasants dollars, the nobles are out banging chicks not playing video games.

RTS's aren't even hot on systems with mouse and key. So this may need to be filed under too little too late.

IMO she's free to make whatever video games she likes, like the rest. Don't really need censorship either way, just freedom to make what we like.

If anyone thinks video games are overly sexist, have you seen videos/cinema?

Cliff, a lot of those that bought it really cheap... I bet a good number of those are part of the 40% or whatever it was, was games people bought on Steam and never even played. I have a handful for sure and I don't feel bad, I know the game was worth it, fosters the industry and perhaps some day I will buy it. I know I have a number on my Wishlist that I will not buy period until it is on a strong sale. To me it's better some $ than no $$$ and where they sit now, no $$$.

I would have to ask, why does the pirated version run so much better than the Uplay version? No lag when turning in a car, decent FPS with all the bells & whistles.
Because you're full of shit?

Well I've seen the pirated version run (No, I don't do that) on a 660 with a stock mid-high range Intel quad, all set to Very High or the setting right under Ultra. Game looked very crisp and ran super sweet. GFX are subjective, but it is was silk like in movement.
There is no difference. Why would there be?

I can't say there is, I'm just saying the version I saw and how it looked and ran, smooth as glass and good looking. Now it is still possible, I remember back in the day of Starforce and the like, DRM actually was hindering performance on some games, it was so intrusive you could pick up 10 frames having a cracked version.

Am I the only person finding the revival of dead celebrities via hologram disturbing? It's funny on something like Futurama, but in reality?

It is odd, I thought you could see the audience in general was confused on what to do. I'm not sure if it even was the "Dead Thing" the biggest part. How about being in the audience cheering and getting into a fake artist on stage? That alone would make me feel strange. It still could be a glimpse into the future, as we get used to it, new gen comes up living in a world like that.

Lets say Judas Priest now a very old band but well alive, have this done to them in their prime and in general it rocks vs what the real thing looked like back in the day even. Would I buy tickets and go nuts in the audience to images that look real life on stage? That would take some rewiring for me.

For those complaining about the price, it's basically funding an unfinished project... getting access to an unfinished build is just a perk. He certainly isn't "selling" the game at that price.


I think the price is high, too rich for my blood. But if they are clear upfront what is going on, all good. All totally good. Now we can still say their crazy, but the buyer has the info to know what the cost is and what it gives back. That is why I don't have any issue with Kick or EA, it's up to you what to do.

For me I hope it rocks and see you at release! (Star Citizen all the same)
