News Comments > Battlefield 4 Mantle Update Released

These results are nowhere near the mind-blowing game-changer Mantle was hyped up to be. You're right in that the main reason high-end CF is seeing the largest boost is because they're finally able to get closer to twice the performance with twice the GPUs, thanks to these new optimizations. That's something NVIDIA was able to pull off with their architecture + drivers back when Fermi came out in the 400 series.
If the results mentioned earlier are representative of the performance gains, which remains to be seen, then they're completely in line with what I was expecting and will have a major impact upon the market. Suddenly an AMD card that was on par with an nVidia card is now considerably faster in supported games.

With that sort of performance I'd happily consider going back to AMD, especially now some of their longstanding issues have been addressed (multi-GPU frame spacing). However, I imagine the actually gains will be less impressive than those mentioned.

The game I'm most looking forward to is Star Citizen and it will include Mantle support, so that's a considerable influencing factor.

News Comments > Star Citizen Dogfighting Module Delay

You can't make promises that it will release in December no matter what, then delay it because you decided to make it better. Well, you can, but you're still not keeping your promise.
The pledge to release the dogfighting module was made last year before the Kickstarter was a runaway success and it broke all crowdfunding records, leading to a change in the scale and scope of the game. Those following the YouTube channel have known for a while that the dogfighting module was facing a potential delay so as not to delay the final release of the game by forking the code. Don't forget that every other major Kickstarter game has faced delays (Wasteland 2, Double Fine, etc).

So fuck all the moaning. Go back to your caves.

News Comments > Oculus Rift Raises Another $75M
71. Re: Oculus Rift Raises Another $75M Dec 13, 2013, 21:36 theyarecomingforyou
 
120Hz just isn't going to happen any time soon, at least not if you're talking about resolutions in excess of 1080p. Some games would work fine but most multi-GPU setups wouldn't be able to pump out the framerates required at 1440p, let alone 4K. You either go for a high resolution and sacrifice the refresh rate or go for the refresh rate and sacrifice the resolution.

Even at 1440p a dual 290X setup can only manage 90fps in BF3, 70fps in Metro: Last Light and 70fps in Crysis 3. Given the overhead for processing the two-images (they are calculated from different perspectives) a 1440p display will likely struggle to hit 60fps in a lot of games.

Sadly I think 1080p@60Hz is all we can expect given current GPU limitations, otherwise the potential audience is just too small (and I say that as someone who games @1600p).

News Comments > Oculus Rift Raises Another $75M
44. Re: Oculus Rift Raises Another $75M Dec 13, 2013, 13:52 theyarecomingforyou
 
Microsoft has lost money overall on the Xbox brand and we know that Sony made a loss on the PS3, so consoles are NOT the best business model to emulate. I'm perfectly happy paying a reasonable price for the Oculus Rift - heck, my current monitor cost me 700 / $1,140.

My biggest concern with the OR is the control system. For it to work with FPS games the aim will have to be independent of the motion tracking. At the moment they've demoed it with the controller being able to move the camera as well as the head tracking, which looks like a nightmare.

I really hope this catches on, as not only will it dramatically improve immersion but it will give PC gaming a much more obvious edge over consoles.

The Oculus Rift won't be everybody, particularly those sensitive to motion sickness. Personally it's never been an issue for me but I know some people suffer in FPS games if the FOV is off. That's why I take some of the claims being made around here with a pinch of salt, as it strikes me as highly unlikely that it will affect most people so severely.

Most of the reports have been favourable, so I'm not worried. I can't wait to get my hands on one and try it out with Star Citizen.

It is a MONEY issue. Same as it was back in the day. They wanted PROFIT, so they cheaped out on the displays resulting in pixelated mess. Now they are trying to find an acceptably high rez display..... for as cheap as possible.
What a retarded claim. No company sets out to make a loss. Economic realities will always be a factor in devices like this but the consumer device will be 1080p+, which is the minimum needed to balance cost with fidelity. They have stated that 4K will be supported in future models but the reality is that current GPUs simply can't support it adequately, not even with multi-GPU setups.

And cut it will the bullshit. Nobody has claimed the experience was a "pixelated mess" - in fact the response has been overwhelmingly positive, even at only 720p. That means that things can only improve.

Think about being equipped with a VR headset and mock weapon, put in a warehouse with padded boxes/shapes that represent objects in the game level that you view in the headset. The warehouse is identically mapped out to that of the level you play, and your movement is tracked by a plethora of tracking cameras.
I doubt that'll ever happen as it simply wouldn't be practical. More likely is that games will start to use augmented reality to overlay game elements into real life, particularly through technology like Google Glass.

CliffyB has been so hostile to the PC gaming community that he'll have to do a lot to make up for that. That said, if he produces a decent games I'll buy it - I'm not that jaded. You never know, with the right people it could turn out right.

I trialled WoW briefly and I was not impressed - low level fetch quests are not interesting. I have never understood the game's popularity.
Ditto. I enjoyed Guild Wars but that's because it was more a traditional game that you could also plays co-op.

Gabe has and will ban you from your games if you post something he doesn't like in his forums.
Not true. The forums are separate to Steam accounts. Further, Valve no longer bans accounts but locks them instead, meaning that you can play the games you purchased but restrictions are applied (purchasing, gifting, trading, serial activation and Steam Community access are disabled).

However, that's not to say that there aren't issues with Valve's policies when it comes to Steam.

8. Re: GOG.com's Money Back Guarantee Dec 9, 2013, 11:41 theyarecomingforyou
 
It really is time for Steam to introduce similar pro-consumer policies, as there is definitely significant room for improvement when it comes to buggy games, refunds and VAC permabans.

VAC bans are permanent and apply system-wide, even when accounts are hacked or you unknowingly download a mod containing malware. That means that 20 years down the line when you have 2,000 games on Steam you could have your account stolen, become flagged by VAC and when it is returned never be allowed to play on a VAC secure server for ANY game on that account. I completely support efforts to prevent and punish cheating but not when they can impact legitimate users, especially those resulting from security failings on the part of Valve.

Valve has done a great job with Steam but now that it is successful and widely used more needs to be done to protect consumers.

PS - It's about time that Valve gave the Steam client an overhaul. The visual style is rather dated and isn't well-suited for users with several hundred games.

The Witcher 3 looks great. However, Thief looks terrible, especially after Dishonored set the bar so high. This looks like a B-project from a second rate studio, not the next major project from the developer of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Ooof, I was thinking that, as a vanilla backer, I would have access to the beta. It sounds like you have to pony up an extra $20 for the privilege, though.
Ditto, though given how pressed I am for motivation it's probably for the best. The only alpha/beta I'm interested in is Star Citizen.

Yeah the balance is kind of out of whack in DOW. DOW2 sort of corrected this, but then people complained that it wasnt a proper RTS game. In any case superhero marines dont adapt well to multiplayer balancing
I much preferred DOW2, as it was more faithful to the franchise and a refreshing change from the stale RTS mechanics. I understand the criticism, it being a departure from the original game, but I care about decent games are DOW2 was certainly that.
