I have no issue with a developer making a SURVIVAL HORROR game that is targeting 30 fps and 2.35:1 for aesthetic purposes. They're giving you the option to bypass those choices yourself, yet you still bitch and moan?
Console commands don't count as giving the user a choice, as 95% of gamers aren't going to know about them or ever use them.

The only reason they even mention console commands is because they know people will discover a way to bypass the limitations anyway and this makes them look ever so slightly less like complete and utter cunts.

News Comments > The Evil Within > 30 FPS "Not Supported"

No thanks.

There is no excuse for targeting 30fps on PC. I don't have a problem with a 'cinematic mode' that limits the aspect ratio and framerate but that should be optional. The game should be designed to use the full screen resolution and support 60fps minimum.

This is clearly a console port.

Re:Oculus Rift

Why would they bother? How many Rift are they out there in the publics hands yet - fuck all - it's still in an early dev version at that. To say they 'missed out' by not shipping with rift support is totally wrong - neally anyone with a rift is an early adaptor who most likely will by this game even if its only an average game.

Adding Rift support would of maybe got them 1000 extra sales. It would help Oculus Rift more than sega/CA.
It's not about the sales for OR users, as they are negligible, but rather the good press that comes from it. It's basically a cheap form of advertising that adds an extra dimension to the game for those who have it.

I think the criticism is getting pretty tired now.

SC is the most successful crowdfunded project in history and is bringing in more than $3,000,000 a month, with constant updates being released and new features. This month they'll be showing off the FPS module and we may even get to play it soon. It's successful for a reason and that is that it's what PC gamers want.

When I backed the game I thought it was going to be a low-budget space-sim and what we're getting is a game that looks to redefine gaming. I don't care what anyone else thinks, I'm more than happy with that.

Uh, you can get up to DirectX 9 with Windows ME and 98. Heck, you can get up to DX8.0 on Windows 95 of all things.
That's not the point. Microsoft claimed that Windows ME was going to ship with DirectX 8, which it didn't.

News Comments > Civilization: Beyond Earth Trailer
16. Re: Civilization: Beyond Earth Trailer Oct 1, 2014, 17:22 theyarecomingforyou
 
I preordered it a while back. The game looks awesome. The only question is whether it will be a true replacement to Civilization V or merely a distraction. Considering that I've sunk over 460hrs into Civ5 it's going to have to be a pretty amazing game to top that, though I'm optimistic.

Personally I thought Civilization V was great out of the box and a worthy successor to Civilization IV. Sure it lacked some features (as is inevitable with a game so massive in scale and built-up over numerous expansions) but it really advanced the series, with the expansions taking it even further.

Loving the game so far. The campaign is pretty decent and it finally has multiplayer, though I haven't really pushed it.

Personally I'm glad. I hate the MMO model - it incentivises grind over fun. I love TES series but this atrocity needs to burn.

Well, true. It went from horror movie to action movie. But one of the greatest action movies that has ever been made. I love both movies, but they are very different.
Exactly. In fact it's very much like Terminator, which went from dark horror in the first film to all out action in the second. They're both great films but for different reasons.

I'd like them to answer to consumer watchdog why the fuck they charge 89.99$ USD for Civ Beyond Earth among many other titles sold on Steam Au. I largely forgo pirating games but thing like that wants me to do it just in spite
That'll be the publishers doing it to appease physical retailers.

Wow, forgot about that drive. Not much use today, but it sure was great back then. Still have mine lying around here somewhere, bet it still works too.

But enjoy the new SSD experience, if you haven't had one before! Even one of today's cheapest ones will probably blow you away...
I had a Raptor back in the day and it was unbelievably noisy and performance wasn't that much better than a traditional drive. SSDs on the otherhand are much more dramatic.

I look forward to when SSDs are affordable enough to replace HDDs altogether. Until then I'm looking at a 5TB HDD for my next purchase (the 6TB drives are a bit too expensive still).

How did they beat Steam to the punch?
Steam has movies as well(granted, not DRM-free).
Exactly.

This announcement is incredibly underwhelming when you look at the available titles. Valve's upcoming TV and movies will almost certainly be a lot more credible. I like GOG but it's going to have to do a lot more to become mainstream.

uite the opposite, I've frequently defended Microsoft when I think its appropriate and called them out them when they're nonsensical, that's how its supposed to work. They're a corporation, not my "buddy" or something.

The fact that you think you were "attacked" says a lot about your mindset and bias here. You were the one criticizing other peoples thoughts, no one said boo about yours on the game. If you mean my personal observation then fair enough, I've just noticed you have an overly positive bent to anything Microsoft but I should've kept it to myself. [/quote:

Exactly. Microsoft has taken a cherished PC franchise and reduced it to a pathetic joke, what with the pay-2-win AoE:Online, this bullshit, shutting down Ensemble and talk of a TV series.

Yeah, nobody on PC uses controllers, steering wheels or joysticks. /s

I use controllers for games where appropriate, as they're especially good for local co-op. Controllers are great for racing games, where mouse and keyboard is demonstrably worse and steering wheels take up too much space / cost too much. Controllers are also great when I use Steam's Big Picture mode and switch to my HDTV.

If Valve can improve the accuracy and functionality of controllers then we should all get behind that. I use a X360 wireless controller because it's a good design that's widely supported - if Valve can better it then I'm there. I'll probably pick up a Steam controller at release, provided reviews are decent.

I don't know how this can even be called a pre-alpha, as it's just a box in the UE4 engine with a few rehashed weapons from UT3. There's literally no point in this release.
