It's just that most of the content is so bad it makes you wonder why people even try. Unless you can knock it out of the park with something genius like Burger King's Left Handed Whopper don't bother. Most of them come off as sad little cries for attention.

I thought there was some funny stuff this year. Sorry that eraser is so down on the day.

So the PS5 will just be a box that streams games from a central server?

i never claimed LA was any better, was just wondering if NY was as bad as they come across in the news, in particular at the lowest level of one on one interactions where that stop and frisk bullshit was blatant institutional racism.

that us vs them thing seems to be a real problem with police these days - that 'protect and serve' slogan seems to be just lip service these days where police depts seem more interested in protecting themselves and see their communities as nothing but a pool of potential criminals/enemies.

Yeah, sorry, I jumped to conclusions knowing you live in LA or OC.

I wish someone was still making CRT monitors. Those were the shit. Wish I could get a wide screen CRT monitor that runs 1080p at 100Hz. CRTs beat the shit out of any and all LCDs I have ever seen or will probably ever see, both in image quality and refresh rate.

Plasma?

Also RIP : OnLive

So much for your whole "All gaming will be done like this in the future!" huh, fellas? Glad you're gone.

Infrastructure not quite there yet, but I think this will be a thing at some point. EA and Activision would love to put all their games on a service like this and charge people monthly instead of having to send software out into the wild to be pirated or played forever without a way to monetize. Not that I want that to happen, but I'm sure they've got people trying to figure out how to make it happen.

@Dr. Squick

The new Galaxy S6s are 2,560 x 1,440. I assume that will be what's used in the OR CV1. That should help a bit with text blurriness while still being renderable by a mid-high end video card. 4K would be even better, but I doubt there are many PCs out there that could render 4K @ 90hz.

Anyway, if the OR CV1 is 2,560 x 1,440, I'll pick one up.

I will probably never play this, since it offers no neutral or good choice paths in the story. I do hope it's successful PC port sales, so rockstar will get off their dumbasses and port Red Dead Redemption.

Well, technically you don't have to be a bad guy. No one is forcing you go commit crimes in-game. You can play virtual tourist and just travel around taking in the sites.


Soooo...you would play RDR though? The Western version OF THE EXACT SAME THING WHERE IT OFFERS NO NEUTRAL OR GOOD CHOICE PATHS!?

ugh. whatever dude.

I thought RDR had both good and bad paths? You're a vigilante, but the central campaign is trying to bring bad guys to justice, no? And there's an honor mechanic or something? Haven't played it, just recalling what I read about it.

No... they are generally fine people, spoken as a white dude anyway... I have seen NYPD being more lenient in my experience than nassau or suffolk county PD (those jerkoffs are the highest paid traffic cops in the country)....

NYPD is technically the 7th largest "army" in the world... so yeah... There are just a lot of them so there are lots of bad apples to "hear about" in the news.

The NYPD has a rep for being insular with an "us vs. them" mentality, especially under former commish Ray Kelly. Under new commish Bill Bratton and especially after Eric Garner was killed, there's been an attempt to reform the department. I think it's been a challenge though with the old-school style of the police union out there.

question for our NY friends - are cops out there generally dicks? just from my oh so scientific anecdotal memory, there seems to be a lot of sortof low level police authoritarianism going on out there. like the stop-and-frisk thing (how they ever thought that was constitutional...), or what creston posted, or a video of a bunch of cops verbally abusing some dude who was trying playing an innocent prank on them.

Because the LAPD is so nice and friendly?

BBC Celebrates 10 years of the new Doctor Who by putting it on BitTorrent.

That's an interesting experiment using BT for the distribution platform. $12 for the bundle of 10 epis. Good price for what you get. I hope it doesn't get pirated too badly.

That is my only problem with these games.

Forced bad guy. Worse than most bad guys too ... lifelike criminals.

It's funny you write that. I was just thinking about that today: how to do a GTA style game where you're the good guy. How would that work?

I'm half kinda waiting for the rift or another similar VR device to go retail before picking this up.

Was hoping for the full VR package on this one.

Yeah, that's kind of where I'm at. Also, this is one of those games where the longer you wait, the better the experience will be.
