Having said that, I really need to get Prison Architect...as well as the time to play it!!!

I really dig PA, every update (which is about 1 a month) really adds quite a bit to the game. Its already pretty great, i've already got my money's worth from it i feel.
Same here, although they really need to fix the tunneling in the next update. I've given up after nearly every prisoner digs a tunnel every single night. Of course I realise this is an alpha and I'm happy to wait till the next version. It really is developing into an excellent game.

I just finished watching seasons 1 - 5 of Breaking bad the past 2 weeks. I am about as prepped as I can be for the finale.

The hardware business is a tough one. Valve are not Microsoft or Sony. If they try to mass produce this thing I see them going bankrupt.

BTW how god aweful is the voice over work and the 'enemy... spotted... south...' from the previous games?
That is much improved upon surprisingly. It sounds quite good actually.

Besides the weirdo future units, the stupid greek setting, the missing campaign (which would/will be retarded anyhow) - the game is an improvement in nearly every sense that matters. Controls, sound, graphics etc.

The pre purchase price on Steam seemed excessive. How much will the final product cost?
Yeah these guys went the opposite direction as far as early access. Pay a lot, rather than pay a fraction. I'm guessing it'll be priced lower at release.

It does look nice, but I'm happy to wait for the final price

edit: yeah $40 according to this page https://store.uberent.com/Store/PreOrder?titleId=4

bah...

what me worry? this guy made: wing commander, starlancer, & freelancer! consider these r&d for SC... freelancer hints at much more depth that was incomplete due to publisher intervention, which is gone with SC. hopefully Roberts will not become a George Lucas.

they are using cryengine3, as he pointed our in the last video they have crysis 3 functionality right out of the box. i believe the last video he alluded to the art assets being the largest amount of work facing them prior to the ks.

so i imagine most the design is done (what was left out of freelancer along with what has been dreamed up in the last 10 years), the engine is done and is a proven platform for FPS with vehicles.

cant wait!

Now get out there boy and buy another $5000 ship!

I'm sort of looking forward to this game. My expectations aren't high. I know it's arcade. And I'm a sucker for Vietnam era titles.

Budgets will hold back photo-realism more than specs ever will.

You are assuming that photorealistic graphics will be built in the same way that traditional graphics are made these days by artists and designers who 'create' content in the traditional manner by building 3d assets, textures etc. etc.
When it comes to the future dont assume anything, by the time photorealistic graphics become possible and feasible for consumer grade specs, there will probably be equally ingenious ways of simplifying and building assets in much more cost effective ways. Textures for example could already be very easily incorporated by simply using photography for example.
A photo of a surface will give you a diffuse texture. You still need specular, normal, bump and countless others to approximate the appearance of a "photoreal" surface. Good luck doing that without expensive teams of artists.

it's basic business 101: you grow by gaining new customers
If this isn't aimed at existing Steam users, why do they plan to stream to the box from your Windows PC? Or did I misread something.

Let's presume this isn't aimed at me a longtime steam user.

Who is it aimed at then?

If a casual gamer asked me if he should buy a console, or a linux box that allows him to run console ports weeks or months later through emulation of Directx, I'll tell him to buy a console.

Actually. If I had to choose between Valve's product and a console I'd rather buy a console

To me this is like Google announcing a hardware TV device, or Apple, or any number of companies with HTPC like devices. I like Apple's phones. I like Google's search engine. I like Valve's games.

Man, so many people sitting here saying "I'd never use this" or "I already plug my TV in" or whatever.

Duh. This isn't for you. You already spend tons of cash on Steam. This is for people that don't.
Oh bluesnews. The selection of trolls on here don't bother me nearly as much as the keepers of the opinion high ground. Not that I'm specifically aiming that remark at you Beamer. This thread in general.

"Spending tons of cash on Steam", sounds like a great reason to have an opinion on a Steam related product. This being a pc gamer website and users being a little more technically inclined perhaps having used Linux and Windows operating systems means..well some of us might make comparisons. Knowing how to run cables between a TV and a PC..perhaps means some of us will have opinions on whether we'd purchase this or not.

I'd rather see Valve making games. Though I realise they are now better at installing digital ATM machines in my home office. And now living room.

That is pretty silly
Running some cheap cables is pretty straight forward. Cheaper than buying an additional system. Simpler than having my games located on two devices. I've been doing it for 10 years. You not catching on to something so simple make me wonder if you're not perhaps a little silly in the head?

This may come as a shocking revelation to you but HDMI and other graphics cables are available in multiple lengths often of many many meters that will easily reach any TV.

You still need input nearby even with wireless. The long cord thing works fine for apartments mostly but it's a pain in houses, I know because I've done it.
My comment goes for USB cables too. Cables can easily be fixed to run along skirting boards. That's what I've done. It really isn't hard and I didn't need to buy a Steam Machine.

Verno wrote on Sep 25, 2013, 15:33:
As it says in the FAQ if you're not interested in this then just keep using Steam the same way you do. They think there is a growing market segment here, whether they are right or wrong is something only that time will answer.
I've had coworkers telling me all day that this is going to be the next Xbox. I'm kind of primed to be hard on this.

I also feel this is further chipping away at the PC + keyboard mouse gaming by a company that was founded and funded by people who still happen to control the majority of their games this way.

So..a box where I can sit on my couch and access my steam library and play them with a gamepad? My steam games are on my PC for a reason. Most I do not want to play sitting on a couch. And if I want to I plug in my Xbox for Windows controller and make do with that and hmdi to my projector.

Who will purchase this? Console gamers aren't going to migrate from the major brands for the same ports delayed by weeks/months. I see maybe a couple of 100 000 selling at best.

This may be a shocking revelation for you but get this -- not all people have their gaming PC located within five feet of their TV.

Sad that boxing has been rigged for decades. Wrestling has the same level of legitimacy.

Boxing is definitely NOT pro wrestling! There is no "screenplay", boxing bouts are not acting classes. But yes, there have ALWAYS been shady decisions and fixed fights. For example, one judge (CJ Ross) scored the fight of "Money" Mayweather vs. "Canelo" Alvarez a draw, which was absolutely outrageous, because Money easily won the fight by six of even seven rounds (as the other judges scored it correctly). Ross stepped down a few days after the fight. So, yeah, the mob still has its fingers in boxing, but so it does in a lot of other sports.

Maybe she's an incompetent judge? Do people always pick conspiracy over the common sense straight forward answer. There are many poor judges in combat sports making poor decisions in fights much lower profile than a Mayweather bout. Here we just have a bad judge on a major fight. The commissions are dirty in so far as they assign incompetent judges to large fights and seem incapable of acting when those judges make mistakes.
