News Comments > DOOM in May
48. Re: DOOM in May Feb 5, 2016, 01:30 Dmitri_M
 
Looks like a sequel to Doom 3. Not the original Dooms. All sci-fi normal mapped rounded corner meshes.

Someone said it previously in this thread, but it's missing the grit of doom 1 and 2.

This looks like chunky anime gore. Resin figurines on a hipsters nerds desk come to life. When it should be a stack of ganky VCR tapes of late 80s/early 90s horror films in a fake wood paneled basement, a nasty wrinkled Slayer Divine Intervention poster the only decoration.

Sounds to me more like you're a Microsoft shill making up stories to get people to upgrade (see I can make some really dumb assumptions, too).
But, seriously, this always reminds me of those people who are completely blind fanbois. Like when a game comes out that has a few dozen reproducible bugs that will always happen to every single person using the program regardless of hardware because it is a software issue but then you have people like you here who will claim that the game has zero bugs and is running flawless 100% of the time. Whatever. If it helps you sleep better at night then nightie night with your flawless Win 10!

When a game comes out as a buggy mess, everyone knows about it instantly. Meanwhile, Windows 10 has been out a while and the only articles we've seen about it on Blue's are about the privacy issues.

Where are the articles about Windows 10 being a buggy incompatible mess as alleged by some folks in this thread? Why aren't they submitting those articles to Blue to post?

Because it's stable and quite good.

Some of the people around here should unplug their internet for absolute privacy and not bother with installing an OS because clearly they're simply not that good at it.

Loving Windows 10.

Wish I could say I hate it, but I simply don't.

For a gamer and a graphics professional there is no alternative to Windows.

I was completely ok with purchasing 3 x 24 inch LCDs + track IR and a 300 dollar steering wheel to play sim racing games - in that context the Rift seems to be priced ok.

That is all I can think of playing on it for now. I want a triple monitor track IR setup but I don't want to dedicate the space in my house to having it setup. In that respect this price is ok. It offers that freedom of head movement without all the hassle of extra monitors and hardware to mount them.

But for games that aren't Sim's? That's the real question, I haven't seen much that I want to try that isn't a Sim. I could see this bringing Sim's back in a big way. Who wouldn't want a kick ass star trek bridge commander game with that thing?

Or maybe a submarine captain, that would be fucking awesome! Shit, I think I just sold myself...

For flight sims, and especially the sim racing genre (which is huge, so many good titles) the Rift is probably worth getting.

The only thing that is surprising about this is that the average gamer somehow thinks this will be anything more than a niche product.

With that kind of a price it will be... I have a hard time believing the production cost of some cheap headphones and a gutted Samsung phone add up to $600...

Even at 300 it's a niche product.

There just isn't a large enough catalog of popular casual titles to support it.

1. Motion sickness is inevitable, after a lengthy playthrough, REGARDLESS of the changes made to refresh rate. This is part of the 'my body isn't physically doing what my eyes are saying,' effect. There's a scientific term for this, I'm sure, but that's the best way to explain it. More than 45 minutes inside, and I need a break, and even then I suffer from dizziness or nausea. I should mention I'm extremely into rollercoasters, rides, skydiving, etc., so it's totally cerebral of an effect.

Yeah I tried DK2 and experienced the same thing. The problem isn't so much using it, for me the issue was taking it off and for about 30 minutes after feeling dizzy as my brain readjusted to the world moving, and my body actually moving along with it..

If our eyes are telling us we're moving, and our ears aren't feeling our equilibrium changing - we're gonna feel queasy.

If you play sim games there's already a huge catalog of titles that work with Rift.

These titles often inspire people to spend 100s on specialised controllers. Many of us have had head tracking for years and years with TrackIR.

I was completely ok with purchasing 3 x 24 inch LCDs + track IR and a 300 dollar steering wheel to play sim racing games - in that context the Rift seems to be priced ok.

If I wasn't into sim games - and I was stuck playing indie dev rift demos - then yes the price is fucking outrageous.

A sim gaming controller bankrolled by the ultra mainstream Facebook. Oh the irony is marvelous.

The exclusives thing is stupid.

But why is everyone bashing Windows 10?

I upgraded from 7 and have felt it to be an improvement. Rock stable. The windows file explorer has actually seen real improvements. It handles 4k and multi-monitor setups well.

The only thing I find bad is the start menu. But that was easily solved with a third party app.

Yeah it has a lot of security issues, But I guess some feel that 4k and multi-monitor setup and other features negates the many security issues. For example Windows 10 has a built on keylogger that transmits to Microsoft, and other tracking features that can't be shut off without hacks.

There's an option in the Win 10 settings to disable this.

I want to be wowed by Rift, but this seems like the worst game to do that. Oh, an N64 looking platformer! Whee!

Yeah, I'm thinking more like Fallout 4 in VR, not Mario.

It was announced a few weeks ago that Eve: Valkyrie will also be bundled with Oculus.

Also price speculation that the OR could be $500 or more.

Pricing is fine, about what you expect for a next gen console. Until I see some finished games that wow me and make me want to buy it, however, I wouldn't pay even $100 for it.

I just looked through their Wiki list and I don't really see anything that would make me buy one just yet. Half-Life 2 is supported. Great. Did you re-do it with hi-rez textures and improved poly-counts? No? Why the hell would I pay $500 to see graphics from over a decade ago?

Geez, you want to sell a buttload of these? Make Fallout 4 compatible. Make World of Warcraft compatible. (Bash on it all you want, millions of people play and I bet a bunch would hop on the VR bandwagon to plug into Azeroth in VR.) Borderlands? The new Wolfenstein?

Everything they have so far seems like a tech demo.

You've spent how many years playing FPS games and still don't realise that FPS games by design can't support head tracking as aiming is done with the gun - there is no head in FPS games.

Oculus is as niche as TrackIR. If not more so due to the expensive.

Micro-management from a boss is survivable. As long as you learn to not care about the job and just pull your pay cheque.

Watch this a few days ago. It was fine, but made no impression on me. Every third page of the script seemed to have been removed. Del Toro looking moody. Waste of a good cast.

Couldn't get into the second game. There didn't feel like there was much to it. Outside of the beautiful setting. This seems to be much the same.

Everytime I go to the main menu (SP or MP) the game sits loading for more than two minutes. Seems to be connecting to some server. Really really bad execution. I mean, going to the main menu takes longer to load than entering a map..

There are other issues too. Directional sound seems partially broken too. Which is tragic in a title like this. How can you react fast if the sound of gunfire is coming from the wrong direction.

All this is a sha,e really because it's quite a cool hybrid action/tactical shooter.

I say that as a Ravenshield and prior fan. The MP has that same brutal one shot and you're dead feel of the older titles, and the AI terrorist hunt isn't half bad.

ArmA has been in early access since 2001 when Operation Flashpoint was released. The engine dates from 1999. They've been iterating on it since then.

They didn't touch the animation system until ArmA 3. That's more than a decade of clunky movement.

That DayZ is still in early access does not surprise me.

I'm enjoying the game. Rapidly advancing through racks. Probably I'll stop when I hit 50, but then I'll be tired of it. Did the same with BF3. I'm not much of a Star Wars fan but the sci-fi setting is different enough that I like it.

Genuinely good game, with actual game play far exceeding most indie titles. I've gotten my money's worth out of this over the past few years.
