Hope the secret doors and areas come back. With mods, I enjoyed Doom3 but the lack of secrets disappointed me greatly.

Not sure what you mean. There are secret doors all over Doom 3. The open up and monsters pop out!

I was just saying in another forum that growing up in the 90s in the suburbs everyone left their doors unlocked during the day if they were home. If you were a kid at the door you were seen as being obnoxious if you knocked or rang the doorbell, you were expected to just come right in.

If someone came to my house that I grew up in and just walked in, my mom (yes, I said mom) would have aimed a shotgun at the person. This was growing up in the Santa Barbara area. She worked for law enforcement agencies, so that might have been why.

Okay, dude, we've heard enough about your mom to know she was outside the normal range. Where I grew up in the NE, people just came in. Everybody knew everybody in the neighborhood.

If you like Action Movies, go see Mad Max. It was awesome.

Isn't this more of a chick flick with Mad Max as her sidekick/gimp? Seems like it's right up there with the all female Ghostbusters reboot.

You'd hate this one too. The men all get their asses kicked, and the woman has to take command, including rescuing another female by herself.

Dude, total chick flick. A man gives birth! What kind of self respecting man can enjoy that movie? Or Kill Bill, another complete chick flick.

Heh.

Dammit, Beam. Ever since you moved to NYC, you don't come around anymore. Hope it's worth it!

Kind of disappointing actually, I thought a 980GTX would be needed at a minimum really, as I was expecting the CV to be 1080p per eye. True, we don't know the CV specs but as a few have already guessed at in this thread the 970GTX gives s a good indication of what they might be.

Im disappointed because 1080p per eye would be the bare minimum for the Rift to be of any use for us flight simmers.

I guess Ill be buying in at CV2 at the earliest, or maybe one of the Rift competitors could get there earlier.

I'm not sure what you mean "1080P per eye." OR CV1 is 1200P. Or did you mean you thought each eye would be 1920x1080? That would require a 6" screen of 3840x1080, and that doesn't exist. On the other hand, using two separate 1920x1080 screens in one head-mounted display is problematic. If they're misaligned by even a single pixel, then the illusion is ruined. That's extremely high tolerance and a lot more expense. The OR has always been a single screen, so I'm not sure where you're getting that idea from.

Was the cinematic trailer a KS goal? It seems crazy for a kickstarted game to blow money on something like this. Even Star Citizen's trailers and "commercials" are in-engine, not pre-rendered, thus being relatively inexpensive to produce.

Speaking of SC, been a while since we had a thread. Just sayin'

Yeah thanks, how about your damn products specs?

Got to think NVidia will have it's new line come out right around these devices release. I would think many will be looking at 1070's for VR.

21601200, or 1080x1200 per eyeball, or about 2.6 million pixels total. It's a little concerning from a PPI standpoint, but they may also be using a more compact screen with different optics, so screen door is lessened. That being said, with the galaxy s6 1440p amoled screen in the wild and used in millions of devices, I'm surprised it's so low. 1440p must have been too many pixels.

Yeah, I thought CV1 would be 1440P for sure. I think you've hit the nail though: they figured that to hit the 90hz framerate with a reasonable graphics card, it couldn't go above 1200P. But as you mention, 1200P is only about 1.25x greater pixels than 1080P, so I assume we'll still have the screen door effect, just slightly lessened. We'll probably see 1440P in CV2, or "Oculus Rift Plus!" or whatever they want to call it a year or so after the initial release.

They're simply setting the benchmark for cost. A roughly $300 dollar card will be required to the play the thing at any one time, off into infinity. As Horror said, this is not a surprise to anybody.

The rift will always be best utilized with a top, top, top card, or an SLI setup, the latter of which should prove to be the ideal bang for buck scenario. What could really be good, if nvidia and amd support this well with drivers, will be the $200 range GPU's in SLI/Xfire. There's real potential there for "just enough to be perfect" without blowing $600-$700 on a flagship.

The rumor I heard is that they will be supporting SLI with an update where one card renders one eye. Not sure if that requires new hardware, or can be done with a driver update.

Might have to cut those graphical options back to medium. Oh, and no AA.

Well, this was amazing. Not sure it beats the Witcher 2 trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kCGw_64Osc

Meh, I kind of like the W3 one better. Geralt succeeds, but struggles despite preparation.

The W2 one just has logic issues. The assassin swims fast enough to catchup and climb aboard the sloop with all his gear on? Also, ships 10 feet offshore would run aground. The freezebomb destroys everyone and everything on the ship except him? If the wooden box saved the assassin, then everyone on the other side of the mast would have also lived. The assassin bests the King's best archer by pirouetting? The wizard's blast completely shatters the dead guard that the assassin is holding, but leaves the assassin on his feet and completely unharmed? It just seemed that the assassin was relying on way to much luck and coincidence to defeat all those people than skill and preparation.

I wouldn't say they're logic issues, but I get what you mean. I think I can figure out explanations to all of them though.
- The assassin probably went upstream and just climbed on top when the ship got close. He was travelling pretty light too.
- He actually cast a magic sign before the detonation, supposedly protecting him.
- The assassin is a witcher. His reflexes are way better than normal men. It's not like he gave the king's archer time to react. Also, the archer might just be a trick shooter and not actually a bodyguard, so battle might not be his thing.
- That could simply be how the spell works... It explodes the person it comes in contact with.
- He did leave a lot to chance, but maybe he didn't expect anyone to survive the initial frost explosion. I mean, it was pretty damn sneaky. Once it failed, because of luck really, he decided to go for it and his crazy witcher skills saved him.

Okay, fair enough. Nice explanations. Makes more sense now.

Yeah, that's actually a legit case for trademark infringement.

I feel like it's not. Games and utility software seem like very different, wholly non-competing products to me. I'd think there would be zero possibility of someone actually forking over money thinking they'd bought something affiliated with Nero AG.

So you feel like I could make a game titled "Windows" and be okay?

Do We Stop Caring About Popular Music in Our 30s?

The problem with pop music is that it's usually the musical equivalent of a lollipop. Sugary and easy to like, but no complexity or depth. Poeple usually stop eating lollipops when they grow up too. The best music grows on you, just like the best foods: fresh spicy salsa, sashimi, an IPA, Thai curry, etc. Also, a lot of pop musicians are untalented hacks.

Meh, my G'pa is 89 and up until last year he was playing tennis competitively in the sr. league. He's kind of on his last legs now though. Speaking of which, I gotta call him.

But I'll hold you to your promise to off yourself at 70. I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE.
