Teenagers aren't getting any dumber any more than autism is becoming more frequent. What's changed is that now more than ever, every little stupid trick they do is now publicized ever more readily through social media where it wasn't before.

Trust me, dumb teens have been setting themselves on fire for generations. Now it's simply more public.

It's the same for crime. In the past 25 years crime has dropped by more than a third on average. But reporting on crime is three times as much as it was back then.

Sony is supposedly going to show off the new PS4 UI and some other stuff at GamesCom, looking forward to it.

WTF, Vern??! You want to talk about GAMES? Can't you see we're too busy talking about dumb teens and sex in literature?

Doesn't that just pique your curiosity? Doesn't it make you want to click on the link? Doesn't it? DOESN'T IT???

Looking at the SDK, the hooks don't appear to be that challenging to implement... it's just a matter of making sure that the TrackIR motions don't cause issues (go out of bounds, etc.), and that's all on RSI coders...

I've implemented it myself for my own 3D engine/application. Took less than a day, and I had to deal with substantial obstacles that these guys would not have to. For them it should take one programmer a few hours if he knows what he's doing, otherwise a few days tops. Dealing with bounds issues should be trivial given the extent they've modeled everything.

But then again we are talking about guys who, more than 3 months after the release of their massively delayed DFM/AC/POS still require users to 1) manually disable SLI and 2) hand-edit XML files if they want to use a TM Warthog. Oh, and nevermind that it controls like crap, walking around in the hangar is vomit-inducing, etc.

Maybe several months of programmer time would be a more realistic estimation for them. I predict TrackIR support sometime in 2016, assuming they don't switch engines.

I'm sure they have more important things to focus on than support for a niche device owned by a few thousand gamers worldwide.

I love Fass but he's not right for AC. They really should have just found an Italian to do Ezio.

I agree. Realities of Hollywood suck. Wish they'd gotten a Persian actor for Prince of Persia and Greek actors for 300.

I wrecked a 30" Samsung monitor because it had a retarded stand clamp such that if it was loose at all, it only needed a slight upward bump to free itself and flop forward. Even the high end stuff tends toward worthless stands. Certainly if I had toddlers bumbling around the house, I'd invest in a decent wall or arm mount regardless of the stand quality.
That's what I did when the kids were little. Now that they are older I've put it on the stand.

TV stands are like the coolers that come with processors; okay, but there are much better options.

What DangerDog said. They should really focus on a few very elemental issues like:

- Make keys rebindable goddammit
- Add multi GPU support - People with Crossfire or SLI are still SOL unless they disable one GPU
- Add TrackIR support
- Increase the default FoV of the hangar from the sickness inducing "585" to at least "75" or higher. I don't even want to know how many backers this project has pissed off so far because people were vomiting after two minutes in the hangar.
- Add at least some more basic graphics fidelity customization options. At the moment (without manually editing ini/cfg files) you can only change resolutions and set the game to 'Very High' or 'High' etc.
- Work on the shitty graphics quality of the hangar. The ship models look mostly fine but everything else in the hangar sucks. The lighting is way off, textures flicker due to a lack of AA and AF and so on and so on.

You know, polish what you have and don't dump new shit on the pile of old broken shit. Not a good recipe. One very famous game that failed because of this (among many other factors, of course) was Star Wars Galaxies where they kept dumping new content on top of a broken base game. Not good. Share this fate, you must not.
I hear your frustrations but polish by definition comes at the end of the process. There's no point in polishing something that may change drastically which you must then repolish.

I happen to totally agree with him, i guess i'm Cliffy too?

Actually, yes.

since when was stealing socially acceptable? the fuck? i mean, i do use torrentz if there's no demo or beta etc. but then i buy the game.
If you really believe stealing wasn't socially acceptable, you'd uninstall your torrent client, as you're supporting the torrenting infrastructure by using it, even if YOU actually buy the game (which I doubt you do in every single case).

imo if they just brought back shareware we'd not only have better games, but happier consumers. killing shareware was one of the most anti-consumer moves in pc gaming history.
Most games have demos, free weekends, etc. There's plenty of chance to try things out. And if you're an experienced gamer, you ought to be able to gauge a game from let's play vids.

Hmm, no OooB comment today. Two theories:

1. Menahem Golan was a relative of Blue's and he's in mourning.

2. A moment of silence for the civilian casualties of the Nagasaki bombing.

Given that they probably reduced salaries by a billion or so with their tactics, it's good that this offer got rejected. It's like stealing a Ferrari then getting a $10,000 fine.

Hey, it's the free-to-play model, only you have to buy the game first! Let me know how that works out for you!

A shame too. I love TD, and this looks right up my alley, but hell if I'll support this pricing model. This is a $15 game, which I'd gladly pay for.
