News Comments > Turtle Rock on Evolve DLC Backlash
15. Re: Turtle Rock on Evolve DLC Backlash Jan 15, 2015, 11:29 HorrorScope
 
That is a lot of excuse masked as reasoning.

The game without the DLC is comically over priced to begin with and it goes down from there.

The industry hasn't changed a lot since L4D, if anything indie projects have grown. It wasn't that long ago, acts like it was 10 years ago.

Gamers will vote with wallets, we shall see.

If GTA IV is anything to go by, GTA V on the PC will take the top supercomputers from the next decade to make it run smooth as butter at top settings. SPAGHETTI CODE, HERE WE COME!

I want to believe that the recommended settings listed are for 1080/60 with high settings. Please?

Max Payne 3 wasn't bad, right?

Don't know, didn't play it.

Missed Shadowrun Dragonfall.

Agreed, clear miss there. At least DA:I isn't in the running.

Let me guess, you never played DA:I

Not directed at me, but...
I'll play it when they patch in what they said they would day 2 after release. They have gone completely radio silent at this point and I look at it as if no patch has been released because the one they did have did nothing if not create more issues.

I finished the game with nary a problem.

Thousands did, thousand finished a game you didn't like. My point is most acknowledge bad controls, they did day 2, said they'd fix and then nothing. Or put it another way... you've knocked games for less around here I'm sure. EA isn't living up on their end. Don't defend it.

Yeah, maybe if you have the hearing of Daredevil you might need a Pono, otherwise, no.

Needle and the damage done?

Yeah, stereo needle and huge fucking speakers.

Actually, there is a need for HD audio. There is a big difference between 128k and 256k audio but you need a quality stereo to notice and the right music.

This, this and more this. The quality we are fed streaming is good for headsets. But you put it on the stereo with speakers and crank it, most of it breakdown pretty badly, You can sense the low bit rate. Ripping CD's if not using CD's is still where it is at if you have the need to blast through speakers. I still have that need.

That said, who do you guys feel has the best quality downloads/streams?

Right V. But then doesn't is ssem like Sony is taking the Indy dev approach here? So I do wonder if it is going to have the AAA polish feel. To me it looks like it is taking the patch of another 1/2 dozen or so of these. Perhaps more money, better talent and tools will play a factor, we shall see. Will read up on it.

So I've read a couple times in the past the monthly review by each dept. Question: Has there ever been a not very good recap from a Dept in one of the months, like "We didn't get a lot done, because we got stuck on this or that. Or this happened that we didn't expect and has set us back?

I only ask because one I'm not that interested to read all of it each month, but the ones I did, was "Ding another good month over here captain". "We like to say the same as well, good month".

If it is all good months then these things are just part of the charade. I hope they have reported faithfully and with a project like this there had to be a not so good month every so often.

apparently peyton's been playing with a torn left quad since december, which would explain the lack of ability to run. also those fluttering duck passes since he can't really drive his weight into his passes.

Yep get the excuse (I don't mean you) out after a lose to try to reason with it publicly.

Seems weird that they would support a display resolution that's likely out reach for many but don't have out of the box support for something that's likely much more common.

If by weird you mean dumb, then yes.

I have knees in the way so I had to remove tray when I moved (I got massive height changeable desk instead) ~.~ I am not the largest dude ever when it comes to height, my desk is very low , nearly touching my knees, and my monitor is raised about 20cm. So no way to have keyboard in a tray (that's really my main problem, with X55 that thing is simply way too high on the desk. in front of me as well I need that lower than that the desk + desk plate is, that's 5cm at most but those are a real problem for ergonomic seating heh...

Bit stumped how to do this.. I mean there is still 5 cm I can go lower with the desk, currently I sit on a chair that's a bit raised but it'd make moving my legs around very annoying...



Right we all have our own setups and issues.

In my case I have a custom built table out from the wall that runs a little bit higher than a standard table. I then have my monitor on a box, for neck. So it works in my case.

The other thing I have though is I use a nostromo so I wouldn't really need to use a keyboard for the FPS part of Elite.

In general:
So where is your hotas?
Where is your keyboard?

Mobiles don't they work on three tiers or ram.

Main ram usually 3 gig or less, an usually well less of 3 gig.
On board ram 16-64 gig
SD Card 1-128 gig.

I think when sort of comparing it in terms of how pc's work, the main ram is what you are talking about.

For exmaple Droid Razer HD has 1 GB of main ram.

Can I ask you how you arrange your hotas setup? Because there is noway I can sit comfortable on my PC desk with all that stuff lined up next to each other the throttle or joystick, or mouse/kb would be nearly on the other side of the desk... and I'd get neck pain nearly instantly from reaching around that far and holding joystick or throttle for a long time

On top the desk in front of monitor (which is raised, good for neck) is the hotas. The mouse to the right side assuming right-handed. Then have a keyboard slider under the desktop that pulls out. To me that works.

its already good on the Rift, so how much more on the CV1?! Im lovin the immersion
The problem with Elite on the Rift (and SC, and anything else going this route) is that it works great as a seated experience with HOTAS in hand, but what happens when switching into FPS mode? Now you have to fumble around, unable to see your desk, until you find your mouse and keyboard. And then back, to take off. Interdicted, prepare for boarding? Prepare to switch controls again. And back. And forth. Over. And over.

There is another vr tech that had a mode where you press a button and you can see outside the Rift for things like you are talking about. Does anyone know if they have discussed that for the Rift consumer? At the same point I think most can feel their way back to K/M, to their beverage... maybe a bit more worrisome.
