Oh give it a rest Slick. Why do you have a problem with people being cautious and suspect of Microsoft's products? You seem like a fairly intelligent type, yet choose to ignore common sense and previous experience with Micorosft, why is that?

It's because this isn't microsoft's product.

This is what developers have been asking for, for over a decade. Complaining about the abstraction layers of a high-level API has been an issue long as time itself. Microsoft doesn't own this movement that started a long time ago. As I'm sure you'll remember 3DFX, and what they were able to accomplish with low-level access in the 90's. However hardware and new APIs were popping up everywhere, segmenting the market, so all-inclusive APIs like DirectX flourished, being able to translate from gaming code to pixels on a screen for just about any graphic card out there. This of course came at a terrible cost to efficiency, as I'm sure you'd agree that someone who can translate from english to french would be very efficient, whereas someone who has to speak 10,000 languages would be much less efficient at this particular one. this is the tradeoff we've all accepted. However with the rise of consoles, developers made a new push for the low level access to PC hardware, no one heard their call.

Until AMD came along, and with several publisher partners on board guaranteeing "mantle" versions of their products, AMD decided to take the plunge, and finally get the job done. Microsoft is, just as ever, late to the party, and they're swooping in and running with it. DX12 to me is not a microsoft product, it's the brainchild of AMD. Because you can bet your ass that this fundamental change would not be happening with DX12 if that team didn't realise that they might suddenly have competition.

DX12 isn't a revolutionary product, it's a reactionary product. A reaction to something that began with GAME DEVS. And I don't pretend to imagine that it will be flawless, or heavily flawed. I just know what i've seen with my own two eyes of what starswarm can do with a 7970, and it's awe-inspiring. it's the true "next-gen" it's what life was supposed to be like if PhysX had succeeded. It's the future we've been promised, and because it's now being implemented by the people who run the racket on API domination, DX, it will actually APPEAR IN GAMES.

that's not only a win for devs, but gamers too. If people wanna be cautious because, i'm not sure? windows 8's start menu was terribad? i don't really know what standard we're holding against MS in this instance. DirectX has made a boatload of games possible. but it's not efficient. now they're working on that. let's see? let's not pre-judge? common sense?

I have no idea what hes talking about, but im excited now. Better graphics, two thumbs up.

I know that these are niche games/sims but I feel like they've priced themselves out of any chance of picking up people on the fringe that would be interested in buying but don't because of sticker shock.
I feel the same way.
It would have been nice to try the game but pricing is on the high side for me personally.

For the hardcore flight sim fans it's okay I guess since there isn't much competition.

Au contraire. DCS is releasing Edge 2 soon and hinting at some wwii pacific theatre planes (F4F and Zero probably), whilst the best out there at the moment is Cliffs of Dover with the TF mod.

Battle of Stalingrad isnt even very hardcore, theres something screwy with the flightmodels and it has an unlock system and of course a limit on server numbers and the missions are quite sparse. I like it, but I wouldnt call it hardcore. They also annoyed the hell out of me with their Oculus Rift backtrack, blaming DX9 which works fine with DCS, and it was their decision to develop with an old engine.

Basically I really dont think theyre quite at the 'moving on' stage as it seems to me theres a tremendous amount of stuff to be done on BoS.

Huh, imagine that.

The FPS module planned release so soon, on a fps engine, I wonder why. Maybe the others are much harder than anticipated to create so they pumped the FPS beta out quicker to appease fans.

LOL yeah, thats it im sure.

News Comments > Op Ed
3. Re: Op Ed Dec 2, 2014, 11:02 Sleep
 
Bought into the game early with an expensive ship, waiting now for an actual game universe to fly it in before i actually go and spend anymore. It does seem like there has not been anything over and above what ED have produced for way less money. Still, if people want to spend their cash on it, and theyre willing to believe in the promise, then thats up to them.

PersonallyI dont think theres anything bad about it, if the big players want to try and follow the model theyre going to have to promise something gamers are gagging for and actually move towards developing. it. I'd throw bundles at a Star Wars sandbox with freeform flight.

I guess we'll see, I dont think this will damage sales at all once the drama dies down, theres only a tiny minority these days that arent hooked up. What he probably should have done is said you can have an offline version but its frozen there, you can never update without a complete wipe. But there you go.

I dunno. Youve played the game and if you've logged in at all that shows you have the capability to play in solo mode. If you havent logged in then congrats, here is your refund.

Your better off barfing non stop and flushing 1000 dollars down the toilet with a bucket strapped to your head then buying a VR set.

Really bad analogy, no you wouldn't.

don't respond to that guy, he's just a useless troll. i'm pretty sure he doesn't actually believe anything he says, just trying to piss people off.

You are correct.

Well that was...uninspiring.

Stream of consciousness time. Basically we've reached that point and its kind of a compliment to Firefly that it took a decade plus. Fox now wants to try and leech out whatever is left of a franchise they so royally screwed. By now, youre either a Firefly fan or you will never care, you've either got the DVD/Blu Ray or you never will, so the die-hards day is done. A decade man! From a series that didnt even make its season finale! Good job.

Seems to me this is aimed straight at the lower end casual. Fox are going for the people who like MMOs and Firefly and hoping to squeeze out more bucks. More power to them, who gives a damn at this point. Firefly aint ever coming back, Nathan Fillion and the rest of the cast are ten years older! They probably wouldnt have made the cut if they were auditioning today. Except Kaylee. OMG, Kaylee. She'll make the grade FOREVER.

Anyway, probably a POS, but if it passes half an hour, what the hell.

I dunno, Minecraft is moving towards being predominantly a kids game after dumping much of its older demographic so microsoft as good at that as anyone. The real eyebrow raiser is Notch slagging off Oculus over FB then selling out for exactly the same amount of cash. Guess he really was over it.

I haven't bought either of these mentioned products, I'm just a voice of reason that you won't listen to because you're too desperate for a nostalgic distraction from the shit day-jobs you were tricked into for the duration of your time on this planet.

Weigh your decisions with the evidence of history and the wisdom to project the outcome from past events.

I'm not big on Star Citizen myself, but if you'e not into the 'nostalgic distraction from shit day-jobs', then why would you even bother posting on a website dedicated to PC gaming? Shouldn't you have something better to do?

Haha too true. Ive bought into the KS for the game to the tune of lotsacash, and i wont be buying anything else until they actually model my scout. But if people want to, more power to them.

awww... too bad you didn't make the 1st post, only 2nd.

The turd-cutters around here are starting to slack off, wonder were Reagle is these days? (hint: probably playing AC).

That freelancer commercial was a thing of beauty, even that eerily similar narrator.

When - and that's when, not if - you clowns get burned by Roberts you're going to hear us laughing from clear across the planet.

When DFM launched that deafening roar you heard was us laughing at you.

Please dont post obvious bait like that. Thats even worse than trolling...

Worse than trolling. Yeah right. And clearly, anyone is able to post anything. If you think he (presumably) is not going to post in a SC thread in any event, well you havent been following these very closely.

LOL you're funny, every time a SC post comes up, I could almost write these for you by now.

Its all a con, I bet you nothing happens next week, this must surely be the point at which you all get screwed...

It'll be like two years after release and you'll be shouting 'THE DLC IS A CON, SUCKERS!!!'

You do realise theyre releasing something next week right? Thats going to kind of screw your case...
