Raegers Keep(I think that's the name) has a game destroying bug also. You can be locked out of leaving due to it crashing 100% upon exit.

still kinda skeptical how much practical application these VR helmets will have in gaming, outside cockpit simulations

This reminds me of the attitude I saw early into the Android/iOS lifecycle, where some people were skeptical of the idea of those platforms being big for gaming. Because, really, if you want to play a game on the go, you have the Nintendo DS, etc. Oh boy, a phone with a touch interface. No buttons, no D-pad, good luck playing Castlevania on that? What a joke.

Of course, what happened was people didn't make Castlevania (at least not very well) on the iOS and Android. But they made Puzzle and Dragon, Infinity Blade, and a variety of other games that played directly to the strengths of the device. And now mobile gaming is huge.

It's similar here. You're saying, no benefit beyond cockpit simulations. But to developers, they hear that and start thinking of a million games or gameplay experiences that can be awesome with that kind of tech. Games where you're a security guard keeping your eye on multiple security cameras trying to catch a crime, or where you're controlling several different tanks at once, switching between manual and automatic control as you play as a strategic/developer mastermind, or more.

There's one huge fucking difference...most everyone you know owns a phone capable of playing games.

Reallly....comparing it to Skyrim? I suppose if you took out all of the quests, dialogue, stretched the landmass100x larger...they might be similar content wise. Then after kitting yourself out in dwarven gear it's 80 hours till you can afford ebony.

I'm not going to be happy if they release pay DLC that adds actual combat content. Right now it's just a space trucking simulator with some dogfighting if you want.

Did they ever get performance under control? I am a fan of the AC series, but totally skipped this.

I got this for free with a GTX 970 last year and just started playing it tonight. On Ultra textures with most AA turned up, it doesn't hold 60fps at 1080p but it's pretty close and it looks damn impressive. At it's patched tonight, it seems pretty decent. If this update improves it more, I'll be quite pleased.

I started playing it this week also and found the performance fine for what I was seeing, same card. Mine will hold over 40 at least, dips into the 30's for some cutscenes that should be in the 60's but maybe they locked those lower for some reason.

Bioware just has a thing about adding bloat to their games. All those little tedious missions in ME3 were added near the end.

You can also check out Alton Brown's Thanksgiving turkey...I've been using his method for a few years now and it's always very good. HE gets the skin crispy by starting at 500 for 30 then down to 350 for the remainder.

80 Bajillion dollars can't make a dx10 version I guess. Even though 25% of the market is still DX10.

http://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/videocard/

Game isn't out till 2016 for the single player campaign and late 2016/2017 for the persistent muli. That number will be much smaller then.

Also, they're not targeting the bottom 25%.

HBO owns the rights to literally all of the movies that Netflix does not have. If they put these all up on the service it's a serious competitor to Netflix.

ahahahah nice try, racing around a course couldn't be more different than dogfighting. This is bullshit.

You're either just a jackass or ignorant of the game, the flight model int he game is pretty complicated and learning to maintain speed while turning is super valuable.

The Racing mode is actually a really valuable feature, it makes it easier you learn how to efficiently fly the ships.

You are also allowed to trade up your old ship and keep the benefits for new ships released.

For free?


EDIT: It's also not a direct competitor to the 300i.

Well the video sure implies that.


The video is an in world advertisement for the ship, it's not meant to be informative. The 300i is a highly modifiable exploration ship. The M50 is pure racer.

I love the way the video likes to point out the ship folks bought previously is now old hat, and you should by this new one, if you'd like to keep up.

Classy.


These are not new ships, they've been in the wiki and were available limited last year. You are also allowed to trade up your old ship and keep the benefits for new ships released.

EDIT: It's also not a direct competitor to the 300i.

i loved him to death, and for that reason i agree with the 'more pissed than sad' dude. he brought such joy to the world, and now i don't think i could see one of his movies without it making me angry. if it really was just falling off the wagon, then he was a weak minded fool. i know a guy who claims he feels suicidal sometimes and i feel the same way about him because i know his entire life story and he's lived a better life than pretty much anybody i know. his problem is he's really intelligent and really arrogant at the same time, and he's convinced himself of the indisputableness of nihilism and as a result of his arrogance there's no talking him down from it. but what it boils down to is that he's reasoned his own way out of pure joy, and it's no one's fault but his own.

i won't dispute there are occasional legit reasons for suicides, but no one will ever convince me alcohol is one of them. he kicked it once he could do it again. he just gave up and took the easy way out. dammit robin, dead poets society was one of my most beloved films too. =(

Then your'e just another ignoramus. Do you believe that the mind cannot have defects as real as the rest of the body? The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. It has far more ways to go wrong then any other individual organ.

Really sad to hear about Robin Williams, it's being reported everywhere now it seems.

Yep. I'm depressed as hell now...


Yea, well, don't go killing yourself. Cowards way out and I am more pissed than sad.

You are a sad ignorant fuck. Mental illness is as real as cancer.
