News Comments > Resident Evil Revelations 2 Announced
2. Re: Resident Evil Revelations 2 Announced Sep 1, 2014, 13:11 SirKnight
 
I just really can't get past the 3rd person view behind the character that RE has turned into. I much prefer the original style where the view stays the same as you move your character around and only changes once your character reaches a certain spot.

Making it 3rd person Gears of War style just turns me off. I can't stand that style.

It makes me realize that Oculus needs to get cracking on a controller before the commercial release. Mice and keyboards or gamepads aren't really adequate for VR. Developers will want some kind of standard controller they can rely on the customer having.

I don't agree, I'm fine with using keyboard and mouse in combination with the Oculus. Those hyrda controllers are cool but I'm not sure if I would use them.


KB/mouse feels really awkward and unnatural to me with the rift (both DK 1 and 2). Even a standard controller doesn't feel quite right. When I use my DK2 I really feel the need to use my hands in a natural way. So something like the Hydra will help a lot with that.

Very nice for 9 years old.

I made pong when I was around 15 written in C using the Win32 API.

Sorry if you all don't recognize a GOD of GAMING when you hear him speak. ALL OF YOU need to lick the ground Romero walks on. And I mean lick it clean. Romero coded the first and best shooter. Carmack blabbed while Romero pioneered multi-player. He coded and made Doom and Quake. Those two games defined the best shooters ever. If Romeros says jump then by god you better be doing a Carl Lewis special.

Lets all mark the minute, and the second, this man said the world would be blessed with another shooter. Everyone should feel blessed that he even decided to lift a finger to code a game. Seriously...


What the holy FUCK!? I hope to God you're just trolling and not serious. Then again considering the source....

And with the new Doom looking shittier and shittier the more I learn about it,


Now it's obvious you're just trolling. Everything people said about Doom that was at QuakeCon makes it sound like a pure old school shooter the way it's supposed to be done.

Took them long enough to upload this.

I think Carmack, along with Abrash and some other Oculus guys, gave another talk recently. I need to poke around and try to find where I read that.

I did like the beta for what it was, but this really is nothing but a mod. It felt exactly like a BF4 mod, nothing more. I'd buy it for $30, but no more.

The Mac version has been out for a little while now. I noticed it last week when my MacBook Pro came in and I was installing things.

But I see no point in downloading it for my other systems when I already have it on Windows and I've only played it like twice. Total I've spent MAYBE an hour, tops.

You could not be more wrong about that. It's doing quite well.

News Comments > Destiny Still Destined for PCs?
2. Re: Destiny Still Destined for PCs? Jun 14, 2014, 13:09 SirKnight
 
I was playing the alpha on my ps4 last night. It's a pretty good game (although not surprisingly, it's very very much like halo) but I can't hit jack squat with the controller. Needs mouse badly. So I really hope they release this for the PC at some point.

I was also surprised to see it's not super linear like halo either. There's all these side areas you can explore besides just the main path.

While Steam is a million times better than Origin, Origin is not THAT bad. It has never got in my way to play a game, never caused me any grief at all and I'm not going to miss out on a game I want to play over something stupid as a blind hatred for something that's really not that bad in the first place.

Whatever.

To preload this game you have to pre-order it. And if you're pre-ordering this game you're a rube.


You should probably just go ahead and get out of gaming. It's obviously not your thing.

Beats are so over-rated and over-priced it's not funny. Every time I've tried out Beats, it sounded like complete shit and usually only one side was working.

I think they should release something like the Atari Flashback. A little nes console that has their entire nes and snes library on it or something - one that will hook up to modern tvs. I's buy one for a hundred bucks.

That's called a PC. They're fucking great!


Nice try, but no.

It's cool you can take either style of approach depending on what you feel like at the time.

The thing that seemed odd to me (other than being an extreme bullet sponge) is how he made those shots with the pistol without aiming or any kind of crosshair. Some of those shots were pretty far.

The elemental demo being released is the unreal project for those who subscribe to UE4. This is not a standalone exe for everyone.

It's listed in the UE4 launcher under Marketplace as "Coming Soon! ETA 22:30 GMT"
