News Comments > Steam Controller Announced
54. Re: Steam Controller Announced Sep 28, 2013, 06:06 saluk
 
Bold move valve! Linux, game streaming, steam boxes, and a new super weird controller. Love it or hate it, you can't doubt that valve are making a major play. If they had got this rolling before this year it might have made a serious dent... coming after xbone and ps4 launches, I dunno. It's not going to sway many console types, and pc gamers are pretty happy where they are.

As has already be mentioned here, this just look like the usual shooter controls of a smartphone to me, to which I have two comments: 1) Why can't we just use our smartphones instead by using a dedicated app and Bluetooth or WiFi or IR to connect to the console? Isn't this already planned for the XBox One? 2) I never could get the hang out of this way to play a FPS, so there is no way I will ever use one! Mouse and keyboard are still a necessary requirement for me.

Looks aren't everything. Smartphone fps controls suck because there are no ridges to tell where you are on the pad, and it covers the screen. Your thumbs get in the way all the time. It looks like the touchpads here have regions in them so you can feel where you are. If it was only as good as holding a phone I don't think they would even put it out.

Can't wait for a dev to release a steamos exclusive game and forget to add the keyboard controls. I kind of hope that happens just to see all of you guys complain

News Comments > NVIDIA: "No Longer Possible" for Consoles to Better PC Graphics

Higher resolution does not = better graphics. a Radeon 6770 can display the exact same graphics scene as a GeForce 780. The only difference is the Frame rate / resolution.

Hold on. Are you arguing that being able to play at a higher framerate and a higher resolution is going to make PC games look WORSE than on console? Any game ported from PS4/xbone to pc is going to be able to run either at some combination of:
* higher framerate
* more particles
* higher resolution
* more powerful anti-aliasing (such as super-sampling, which is a higher resolution scaled down)

... and you argue that this will mean the pc games look WORSE?

That is highly illogical.

So says the company who's chips aren't powering the newest consoles. Coincidence?


So says he's right. It really is maste rof obvious, but sometimes saying it puts it more in perspective. They are not going to pay for top of the line GPU's, they weren't willing to pay for a GPU this generation in their console that surpassed what is in PC's today. Hence his MOO statement.


Total bullshit. The consoles are 8 core CPUS with upper mid range GPUS that have exactly the same graphics capabilities of the most expensive cards on the market today. the only difference would be frame rates at ultra high resolutions.

In fact the consoles will have better graphics than 99.9% of PC games for the next few years at at least because of the advantage of development and expertise on a closed system.

have you watched any PS4 demos lately?



THAT's total bullshit. Consoles will have better graphics than mid-range pcs for a couple years, but that doesn't mean a lot. This is the first generation that the consoles are not significantly higher specced than a typical gaming pc. The demos are not very impressive either, mostly looking a little better than the pc versions of the earlier titles.

This is just grandstanding by the company that didn't get a contract this time around, but it happens to be right. In the past, consoles have had custom parts and chips and a lot of R+D has gone into making them superior. The N64 with it's silicon graphics, the ps2 with it's emotion engine. The Ps4 and xbox one are almost quite literally upper mid-range or lower high-end pc's.

Irony: techies hate Windows 8 because it's dumbed down and designed for a touch screen that the vast majority don't have - but instead they like the idea of an OS dumbed down to basically only browse and play games on a TV with a controller!

Thanks, but I prefer my Linux with a proper desktop and open for every use I can think of.

PS: those complaining they don't want their gaming rig in the family room on the main TV all fall into two categories, Kids living at home and Married guys with a wife that actually wants to watch TV, not watch her husband play some stupid game. ( I fall into the later category )

I would imagine most of the improvements steamos can bring to the linux world will be applicable to whatever desktop linux you are using. This didn't happen with android (what linux benefits did that bring again?) but from what I gather, steamos is more linux than android is.

But we will have to see how open it truly is.

Consider me cautiously optimistic at this point - not for steamos itself but for what developments it may lead to.

News Comments > Dark Souls II PCs After Consoles

PC gamers complain when companies don't port. PC gamers complain when companies do port (even if lacking the resources to do an excellent job). What're you gonna do.

I've been playing DS1 after hearing a lot of good things about it. Amazing game. Worth the little bit of extra effort. Far from unplayable - the gameplay itself is what's unplayable, because it's so dang hard and unforgiving! But that's what's fun about it.

In this day and age when so many games like to hold your hand, it's refreshing to have a game push back and ask a bit more of you without feeling unfair.

I would argue that the reason to play a P+C are the puzzles/story. The art looks really interesting and bizarre, though I agree not great. But even I wouldn't buy this at 31$. MASSIVELY overpriced.

Having not played RDR since I don't own console or TV, was it not designed more with the controller in mind be that it had the 'dead eye' system which would be silly on a PC for starters? As I said, never played it , only watch some youtube videos of it.

Dead Eye was just glorified bullet time, and we all know what platform Max Payne is best on (or, at the very least, started out best on).

RDR != GTA. I'm sure rockstar knows how well their gta games have fared on the pc. They also know how well their non-gta titles have fared. It's unclear that RDR would be a success, and it's also been a while since that game came out. Maybe if there had been a nice window in there where they weren't really working on anything and they wanted to make some extra cash... But yeah I think we missed the boat. But I don't begrudge them any for that miss. Fair enough.

OTOH, the console exclusive stuff is pretty shitty. It also makes perfect economic sense - multiplatform owners will be inclined to get a console version making microsoft and sony happy, rockstar gets to pocket the incentive cash, and the pc only player wont NOT buy it just because it's a few months later - but I begrudge it. I really really begrudge it.

I'm fine with it as long as they don't do any crowdfunding this time... It looks closer to what I was expecting from Miner Wars, so maybe on the right path.

Well.. I'm getting Watch Dogs for both. AC4, I'm not sure about, yet.

I'm leaning towards the PS4 for both, just for comfort and the bigger screen...

This is the first AC I'll be buying at launch, as they're finally making one that really interests me.

What, you don't have a controller hooked into your pc hooked up to your tv in front of the couch?

Yeah I don't get what took them this long. And why 100. If you are going to do curation, do curation. If you aren't, just put a threshold on the damn thing and call it done.

Greenlight is so fricking weird.

Yeah blue, the dev diaries are not marketing materials. They were incentives for people to buy in at 30$.

I always like watching behind the scenes stuff. This one wasn't terribly interesting, but after watching a wonderful "lets play" of wasteland 1 (not sure I could bring myself to slog through it myself) it was cool to hear them talk about the stuff that will carry over in the sequel.

Wow. Indie devs + kickstarter = serious entitlement issues.

Some steps for a better go next time around:

1) Polish and scope the product. Be original somehow, and sell that originality in your product itself. As someone who really enjoys the genre their game was in, the video was boring and didn't make me care enough to even download the demo.

2) Speaking of the video, wtf was that? Who the heck are you guys and why should I give you money? Floating text on top of the current demo's very incomplete implementation is just not exciting. Some of the text didn't even really make sense. You need to get in front of the camera and sell me on your concept, what is the game going to be like AFTER the 5k you raise. If the demo is good enough to sell itself, you don't need a kickstarter. And if it's not good enough to sell itself, you have to actually do some WORK to sell it.

3) Targeting. You guys posted to 68 forums and sent messages to a bunch of unknown youtubers? You have to be strategic about it. Who is likely to give you the coverage you need. Otherwise you just sound annoying.

Of course all of this is basically moot if you don't have a strong concept to begin with.
