I really enjoy this game!
It figures that you'd like a casual game like this whilst zealously bashing Star Citizen, a game with depth.

Go back to benchmarking your quad sli sex substitute while googling for youtube videos of cats star citizen fan!

I'll get this after I've gotten my money's worth from Mad Max.

Sounds made up by a 5 year old.

Well apparently it was designed by a Japanese guy for consoles.

So what's the port like? I've never played a MGS game and I'm thinking of getting this.

I have it, and it feels much more of a homage to Syndicate than a Syndicate clone of sorts.

I liked the second. But think overall that Tim Burton would be better off creating 30 minute short films. His concepts are too high for any real narrative follow through.

Obviously some games are better than others for this, but I think you could make great movies out of Fallout, Mass Effect, The Elder Scrolls, etc., i.e. any game with great world building and built in antagonists.
These may be better to adapt into films, but really that's because they are so successfully derivative of the books/films other media they're copying. Films based on video games are a derivative of something that story wise was a water downed derivative to begin with. Yeah that's not always 100% the case, for the most part games are about interactivity and the narrative is an afterthought, little more than a framework to hang the interactivity from. I bet you could pull single moments from games that are great story wise, but in nearly every game narrative will be compromised in favor of gameplay pacing.

I really like the music. That 80s style synth pop, electric cyberpunk music. Reminds me of Bladerunner or something else I can't quite place my finger on...

It's reminding you of old VHS tape covers stained by greasy fingers housing unmentionable sequel cyborg horrors, slutty leather and pulsating 'riod muscle.

I don't know why Americans think it's ok for young people to easily access firearms. As though they were toys. Perhaps I'm generalising too much and that most of these shootings by young people are individual families with poor discipline related to firearms. But it does seem like your cultural has a lenient attitude towards guns.

Teenagers with questionable judgement, personalities that aren't fully formed etc seem to be able obtain firearms easier than getting a drivers license or alcohol.

I, for one, am done with crowdfunding thanks to Star Citizen, Divinity Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2 and Elite Dangerous all failing massively to deliver upon their promises in one way or another.

Failing "massively"? Please detail exactly how these titles deserve to be lumped in with SC?

I got my money's worth from Divinity Original Sin and Wasteland 2. Can't speak for the others but I see people playing and enjoying them.

Your hyperbole laden spamming is why the majority of posters here get labeled "negative" by fanboys. Even if occasionally you make a valid point you always find a way to piss your own arguments down the drain.

Regarding the use of the word afrikaans word Apartheid's use in video games. It's chasing controversy but I have no personal issue with it. I mean, the word is synonymous with segregation. It's practically a synonym at this point. Not in good taste perhaps but..

It's always been a general term as I understood it as well (including the dictonary entry as Desalus points out). There's a small country in the Middle-East that bends over backwards to control the usage of that word as well, and it certainly wouldn't be beyond them to produce some faux-outrage over it's usage.

Origin of APARTHEID

Afrikaans, from apart apart + -heid -hood
First Known Use: 1947

pretty fuckin clear cut if you ask me

If the word came into use in 1947, it's likely because the official segregation policy of Apartheid started in 1948.. The word itself has no meaning outside of describing that historical policy. In the last decade it has been applied to other states of segregation in other parts of the world. The word's uses are becoming broader outside of just a South African context.

Apparently there's an existing controversy in the news about Apartheid flags replacing Confederate ones as a symbol of prejudice and discrimination in the more backward parts of America, brought to light by an association with the suspect in the supposedly racially-motivated shooting in Charleston a couple days ago. So it seems a fair bit of bad timing for Squeenix and the reveal of this game using that phrase as a slugline.

I personally know South African "rednecks" who immigrated to the US. They moved to the deep south. Which in many ways is similar to parts of South Africa. Hyper religious, backward thinking etc. The one guy sent links to gatherings of South Africans there all brandishing the "old South African" flag (this is how it is known to us) and celebrating the "good old days". This was maybe 2 or so years ago. I found it somehow ridiculous and disgusting at the same time.

That this flag would find it's way onto that Charleston's shooters jacket is something I can't quite wrap my head around. I associate that flag firmly with the past and I'd prefer it remained buried.

Australia is nice. Lived there 3 months.

The only downside I found was the repetitive nature of the landscape. Same Eucalypti trees for miles. Culturally, I felt like I was in an ex-British colony that had decided to transform itself into the American mid-west without the religion but all the same cultural sterility.The isolated feel of the place too got under my skin, which is a personal thing. I grew up somewhere with a similar "end of the earth feel". While I find Europe almost too dense, at least I feel like there are always new things close by to do.

For me at least, this sort of thing works great in brief skits. The 2 minute trailer was great, but the complete film dragged.

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.

2160×1200, 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 should be maximising the resolution. Having tried a Dk1 and found that most serious games that aren't simplistic tech demos were unplayable due to the low resolution, I'm disappointed they're comprising on resolution.

I did not try a dk2, but I heard similar complaints from people in my office who had it.

I'd be happy to play a game at lowered settings to get maximum frame rate at a higher resolution.

But then that's me, a guy who will use the rift for Dcs, racing simulators and ArmA. "niche" sim games. Dropping the res to cater to gamers incapable of conceiving of dropping settings on their 500 dollar Crysis benchmarking card is sad. Seems a disconnect between the players who will benefit the most from this, and who they think they can make money from.

Sim games support VR requirements out of the box, but you need a high resolution to support the UIs and seeing far into the distance for shooting things, seeing the shape of road 100 meters away in a sim racing game etc.

Breakfast In Bed Served To Mom Who Just Got Eaten Out

Damn! Really? That's just nasty. No one needs to go there.

Did you read the article?

Yes. You obviously didn't.

“Ooh, what a treat!” said Taylor while receiving a tray of scrambled eggs, pancakes, and orange juice, sitting up on the same damp sheets upon which she had moments earlier moaned in pleasure as her husband’s firm tongue rapidly contorted in and around her slick vagina.

Maybe you've got mommy issues and think that's hot, but for most normal people that's disgusting. Is that how you think about mom? Getting her salad tossed and railed by your dad?

*facepalm*

I've been known to spend an evening attacking other players randomly. It can be quite fun if they accept it as a challenge. Spent one Sunday in a citywide deathmatch chasing, and being chased.
