A 'whale' is the heart of the microtransaction business. The top 5% of spenders that support the other 95% of free-loading or small-time-spending players in a free-to-play or buy-to-play environment... I am shocked you're not familiar with that term.

Interesting, I did not know that - thanks for the explanation. *shuffles it into memory*

It just means you don't pay much attention to the F2P market. Which is a good thing!

This guy put his laptop on the balcony and plays from inside because it overheats.

Alternatively, he could just clean the damn thing.

Good work if you can get it. Except for the rape threats, that is.

I really like DayZ. Despite what you hear it's quite playable and has been for some time, IF you know you're getting into. The game is janky and buggy as hell. The PvE component is half-baked at best. The graphics engine sucks (why didn't they just use ARMA 3?) and it's rampant with hacks. All of those things are true.

This is the thing that boggles my mind the most. These guys have made literally 10s of millions of dollars, and it seems the game has made little progress since it was released. With that amount of money, you can afford to go out and hire people to fix the problems. It's almost as if they're saying "Why bother? People keep buying it as is."

Most games don't come close to utilizing 2g of card memory. Statistically, about 85% of "pc gamers" systems only have 4-8g ram and a 1-2 GB card, barely 4% run 4GB vram. My 760 from over a year ago has 4GB, and the system I paired it will will last for years to come without upgrading. My son's 970 in his new PC this year will summarily last many many years without the need to upgrade.

I mentioned to make sure you buy the 4 GB because it makes sense to true gamers -- not because it's a popular option.

Yeah, I had to upgrade to a 4GB card so I could play FTL in high resolution.

I'm fine with that. If it's fun, it's fun!


My point was that if everything was crowdfunded, that's pretty much all you'd see since that's all most games would be able to afford.

Giant Bomb quick look if anyone interested.
The title of this game definitely sucks ass but the gameplay looks like some old school C&C. I like it.

Cool looking game, but those guys were clueless.

He did the C & C music. Back in the day I loved those soundtracks.

Usually not a fan of pre-rendered trailers, but that was pretty cool.

As I understand it, the campaign in this game uses rendered cut scenes to tell the story, a la C & C back in the day. As an RTS fan, I'll own this some day, but not out of the gate. Too much other unplayed stuff.

lol George Bush, McCain, Obama, Kerry, and all the White House Cronies are gushing crocodile tears on twitter for their favorite King's death. One tyrant to another said, "We'll miss you dearly." (Koolaid Example 1), but the tyrants are perplexed by the replies, getting better, and better all the time, yeeha, 'Murica.

Saudi Arabia doesn't just finance the ISIS but it's "law" system is nearly identical in barbarism... but then the US with it's illegal prisons, state sponsored kidnappings and torture fits right in.

Hey, hey, hey. On the plus side, we have the largest prison population in the world! America, #1!

I will own this eventually, although I never buy anything EA.

That being said, this is probably one of the few games where EA makes sense. They've got the engine, some levels, some characters, most of the weapons. It looks playable, and they've just got to tweak gameplay and add more content.

In the fool me once rule... any of me falling for this at this point, is totally a "shame on me". MS never, never learns. If the got something cool, the product will sell itself on whatever it can immediately do.

SEEECRET!

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, get a monopoly so I'm forced to use your product anyway.

I dunno, I thought the whole thing was gimmicky. I don't really want or need an overlay for RL, although there are probably a lot of niche uses for it, say in construction to visualize the next part you're building, or in surgery say, so the doctor knows precisely where to drill to insert the metal pin in your broken bone, or what not.

What I'm really looking forward to is OR CV1 so I can escape reality, not augment it.

But my GTX 660 is working pretty well right now....

Yeah, no complaints about my OC'd GTX 670 Windforce. Until something comes out that it really chokes on, I don't see the point of spending. However, when I pick up OR CV1, and it's not smooth, I'll be upgrading.
