I couldn't care less that it's an "artistic interpretation" when the result is as good as Black Mesa. It's incredibly faithful to the original and most of the changes are for the better.

The unfinished version is still better than any game in the COD or Crysis series, which is impressive given that we're talking about a group of amateurs.

While I won't disagree about it being better than COD or Crysis... I guess this is one of the few games that I prefer to remain a "purist" on.

Great... now you can pay for the unfinished version.

Half-Life: Source with the Enhanced Mod (Then delete the modded music files) will get you a fairly modern graphics upgrade (compared to the original), and the complete EXACT game... not someone's "artistic interpretation".

Based on reddit, it seems like more than a few folks are seeing lockups while streaming (netflix, amazon video, etc)...I've not tried it myself.

Well... the only time it happened to me was when I hit the PS button to get out of a game, then tried to load Netflix... and it just locked at the red Netflix screen... I had to unplug the power to get the system working again.... then it went through some sort of disk check since it wasn't shut down properly... and no problems since.

Of course... I haven't tried replicating quitting out of a game and running Netflix again. I figure it's some sort of tasking bug.

All jokes aside, I was under the impression the BLOD was something people were seeing immediately, right out of the box, when they try and connect it.

Well... mine has worked fine so far, except for one lock-up trying to get into the Netflix App.

I think I may get the extended warranty as well... although I usually never do that.

Whats up with the dude who blows up his PS4 with his huge ass tank-busting rifle? Is he some novel kind of Microsoft fanboi extremist??Jesus what is it about americans and their guns??

While I wouldn't do that to my new console... that's pretty much what I'm going to do with the piece o crap "smart blu-ray" player that my PS4 is replacing, which has been nothing but problems.

Obviously this guy is doing it for the shock factor of wasting a brand new $400 console... which is dumb.

Mine is at "prepare for shipping"... estimated delivery 15th before 8pm.

Unfortunately we have to go out of town so I have to have a relative check on our house while we're gone.

I won't get to hook mine up until Sunday.

While the XBone all-in-one demo had some interesting things... there's still some scary stuff... like the kinect recognizing / identifying individuals, and folks being able to see what you have been doing (game, skype, tv show)... why the fuck is that anyone's business? And why the fuck would anyone care what you have been doing with your xbone? (besides marketers) That's taking social networking way over the top, IMO... and definitely has the potential of info being abused. (Joe watched the pr0n channel, and his boss saw it on his xbox friends thing and fired joe.... stupid shit like that, which we are already seeing with regular social networking.)

Sounds like I'm going to get my $20 worth out of it.

My expectations aren't super high, though.

Meh... I put in $20 or so a long time ago. I'm only interested in the single player "Squadron 42"... and if that's decent.... I will have gotten my money's worth.

News Comments > Valve: Steam Offline Mode "Designed to be Indefinite"

Offline mode works just fine for me, I don't regularly go without internet for 30 days consecutively and that sounds more like people pissing and moaning for the sake of it.

My gaming rig is a pure gaming rig. no other software. no anti-virus. nothing. It has no reason to go on the internet other than game purchases, updates (if I wish to), or playing an MMO once in a while.

So, since most of my games are single player... it can go for very long periods of time without needing to connect to the internet.

That doesn't mean I personally go with out the internet... I have other machines and devices for that.

Gaming Media Defend Xbox One's Higher Price, Lower Resolution.

Gaming Media knows who is buttering its bread with ad dollars.

Well... I hate to admit that potentially it could eventually boil down to which platform had be better exclusives.

On the other hand... if a majority of the really good games aren't exclusives (like watch dogs, etc.)... then the PS4 is obviously the better choice, from a performance and value perspective.

It's a trick statement.

Kinect definitely cannot transmit your face.
However, the XBone that it is connected to, can.

Hold on everyone. Hasn't this going online requirement to go offline been like this for years and now they are saying it's not working as intended and you shouldn't have to periodically go online so you can go offline? What?

Correct.

You have to be online in order to switch to offline mode.

After going into offline mode, I run with my Wireless adapter turned off. Whenever I boot the machine... a dialog comes up asking if I want to start in offline mode, and I click yes. An ofline-mode steam icon sits in the tray, and I can launch my steam games.

Around 30 days later, when I boot the machine, the dialog no longer comes up. There is no offline-mode steam icon in the system tray. If I launch a steam game a dialog pops up saying steam is not running. I turn on the wireless adapter, launch steam have it re-launch in offline mode, turn off my wireless adapter, then I have another 30 days.

They are saying that its a bug and offline mode should be indefinite.

Well... I'll believe it when I see the fix.

In the meantime, having to logon every 30 days or so, still pisses me off.
