THANK YOU FOR A POST THAT ACTUALLY MAKE SENSE. If I have to listen to another PC is dead post I am going to FREAK OUT. Tablets are like magazines. I have one in the bathroom and its really handy for those extra long dumps. Lap tops are really PC'S. Phones are incredibly convenient.

When you really have to squeeze out a major loaf there is nothing like a tablet to take the edge off...

Damn you make that sound good, almost wish I had constipation more often.

Six months overdue, not too bad but they should open up the beta to all KS backers. At least Larian is doing it right with DOS.


Man the latest DOS patch, this thing is playing super sweet. Wasteland and the other Baulder Gate wannabee's on the horizon have quite a bar to reach and this has coop and mod'ing ta boot.

if they spent more time on the singleplayer and the game is indeed 15-20 hours then the replayability should still be enough to warrant the asking price.

It's hard for any game to justify $60 given the new market, then being <20 hours.. it better be some good as game playing. IMO the market/expectations have changed.

If they sold the initial release as "Early Access" the result would be the same but far less complaining. Heck, they could even have charged more for it as "special alpha access".

Less complaining? Have you been on these forums in the past two months? There's a steady stream of people calling for early access to be shut down in every Steam Top 10 post, and usually the Minecraft and DayZ posts too.

At least in that venue you speak of it's a general gaming complaint spread across many games. This would have just been another one, but it in and of itself, it would have been much more plausible "it's not done".

I like EA, research is a good key to EA success. 7DTD, Divinity, M&M X all are or were fun in EA.

There just so expensive, to say it replaced laptops. You can get decent general purpose laptops for $300-$400. The cheapest i3 Surface is $780. How can you think to replace something with double the cost? MS you funny guys.

These things make for great adult party games, with non-gamers really liking it. But this was true for the Wii, too. How long does that last? A few nights? And then what? And how many new ideas could have come forward with the new, more powerful Kinect? We had dancing, we had a few party games, would anything monumentally different come out that would get those non-gaming friends interested in trying again?

Right. And that sort of sounds attractive until you really find out adult friends don't typically really want to do this all that often. I've never really had a friend asking to come over to play, sort of we steer them towards it while onsite, have some fun, but never anything requested.

Drinking, movies, bar, dinner, table top game, camping, trip... that's about it for adult couples entertainment. Generally.

I bought it for my wife, she watches a lot of tv and it's actually farely useful for her in that respect. I don't play any games on it. It runs netflix, amazon, youtube and watchs tv almost exclusively.

Blu-Rays, it also plays blu-rays but far more often it's just an easy way for my kids to watch youtube and my wife to watch tv.

Yeah for me I just bought a $70 Blueray to do all that.

Now someone can open a competing streaming service and start the process all over with people migrating to it.

And the incentive? Make a billion.

There is a place for all four and chances are many here have it.

Phone - Mobile business and entertainment.
Tablet - Mobile entertainment.
Laptop - Versatile Business.
Desktop - Office, Development and HighEnd Gaming.

IMO the least important is the Tablet, still a cool device, but if one had to go, it would be that one in a easy decision. Now which would be next after that? Now your going to have to pry from dead hands. I needs each.

Crytek: 8GB RAM Will be a Limiting Factor For PS4-Xbox One Development.

Uhhh... modern PC Games don't even us 8GB. 2GB Max per 32-bit Windows process

There are starting to be several 64 bit executables gobbling up much more ram. But the kicker here is Crytek say this and it is right in general, sure it has a limit. It is still 16 times more than last gen BUT THEIR NEXT GAME IS MADE FOR NEW AND OLD GEN! I mentioned it a week or two ago, it would have been nice their next effort be Next Gen only, because of ram. So perhaps Crytek should have a team meeting and get everyone on the same page.

You want to get a game cheap? You wait. You want to play now? You pay more. That's the reality of pretty much all games that are sold as a one-time purchase.

Actually there are many examples this doesn't hold true to. But the kickstarter tier I do get much more and when it gets closer to actual release and then they want to make a bit more up front like an EA, now they can't under-cut their Kickstarter people. See Wasteland. I think that and perhaps this is a lesson learned for not only them but others after them. It is sort of an interesting conundrum. If you are going to kickstart, but you also plan EA, then you need to keep your kickstart beta's reasonable or EA won't work well for you.

Yeah, let's all be harsh on this game and the people behind it. How dare they make you pay for early access to alpha and beta? You're of course entitled to get this for free, like every AAA developer lets you get free access to their alpha and beta stages of their games, right? And this game must be shit, I mean, it's actually coming out! How much cooler is SC, the stunning Hangar game?

Guys, really. Sometimes I think some of you should get out of your rooms because the lack of air seems to make thinking difficult for some of you.

We are entitled to speak as a consumer who has an opinion. I mention we all have free will here to buy or not to buy. You make the call, that said, I'm sorry but I find $150 astronomical and far from expecting it to be free. How about you don't over dramatize.

Why should it cost more on this new gen?
Because the art requirements go up every generation. Even with tools, the better the textures and the better the models required, the longer it will take to produce them. Which means the size of the art staff balloons.

The textures in many games already had higher versions for the PC. And this new gen isn't surpassing what has been available. If the new consoles owned where the PC is at today, I'd get it, they still aren't even as strong a decent mid-level. So I don't see this spike and go back to their tools should always be improving, to bring costs down to balance out HW gains.
