The perk trees in games like Skyrim and Civilization V (promotions) replace much of the detail which has been removed and add much more depth than a series of numbers steadily increasing. These add abilities which enhance your character(s) and develop the character in a direction you want better than incrementing skill values.

People look at what's removed but don't consider what's been added.

Well that would be great, except the skill trees in Skyrim are broken. Look at what the author of Skyrim Redone says about them on the mod description page. IMO the game needed a lot more polish before release.

Well it's also true that the market is demanding low power chips for mobile uses and not brute force speed. Even modern games on desktops are not taxing the Ivy Bridges. I can see why Intel went for the lower power direction. Intel didn't screw the pooch as did MS.

I guess many of those who waited for over a year and were so hyped for Haswell as thinking it would be a vast improvement are kicking their dog..

The Telltale Humble Bundle is beyond ridiculous value. Bought.

Same. Great deal. Played the Back to the Future ep1 so far. It's cute. Ep 5 is supposed to be the best so I have a while yet...

IN addition, posting things from the op-ed section of Forbes is not evidence of anything, nor was it relevant to the article. When I hear someone say stuff like "There can be no dispute that CO2 is not pollution but a natural substance essential to all life on the planet" Then we know we've entered fantasy land (obviously the statement itself is true, but willfully ignores several factors to try and favor his point, the most obvious being that there can be too much of a 'good thing.' We could say the exact same thing about the sun, but I don't think anyone would recommend hanging out outside all day, on a hot summer day, with no sunscreen as we know how harmful getting too much of that thing we STILL need live can be.)

Well since global warming is a a big political issue then it's a belief and not everyone believes it's a crisis. So I found his op-ed story link worthy. And yes, Blue does often just post one side of the story. The sky is falling.

Open your wallets and pay up to the globalist finance cartel who stand to make many trillions off of global warming scare mongering carbon derivatives while at the same time they monopolize, through carbon regulation, the production of goods we rely on to survive. It's slavery with a new face and I find that far scarier since human history is riddled with insanity such as this.

And for what it's worth I find the processes of mining coal often very destructive and abhorrent but that's not G.W.

For now, there really isnt a reason to put this on PC. The number of copies they would sell on PC just wouldnt justify the costs to port it well, and a bad port would be a stain on their companies portfolio. Better to just focus on maximizing console sales at the expense of the minority.

Well the old equation doesn't apply nearly as much for this new generation of consoles. They are much closer to PC architecture this time around so porting them is looking to be a lot faster and cheaper. They may even develop on PC (with a gamepad UI in mind) and then port to each console. Either way, I predict we are going to get a lot more console ports this time around but good ports, not bad ones.

The old crazy proprietary architectures for the PS2/PS3/X360 proved much more costly to developers than predicted. So this time around they far more standardized.

It's a good aRPG.

edit: but right now it's rather buggy. They're actively patching the game so you might want to wait a week or more for things to settle.

31. Re: PS4 is more powerful, 50% more RAW powerful GPU compared to Xbox ONE May 22, 2013, 12:51 LittleMe
 
Fantaz wrote on May 22, 2013, 11:09:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-spec-analysis-xbox-one

"... PlayStation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU in the new Microsoft console"

"... Sony has used the die-space for additional compute units and ROPs (32 vs. 16 in One)"

So MS is banking on the Kinect gimmick selling more units than a higher spec'd gaming device, similar to how the lesser-powered Wii blew casual gamers away with the wiimote gimmick. Certainly the Kinect device costs money that could have instead been used for a better GPU.

In my scenario the Kinect was watching what the person was drinking like an electronic stalker and recommended a brand change.

Mountain Dew is a PepsiCo brand, though.

Ugh fine, change Pepsi to Coke or something.

Um... It's the creepy unwanted electronic stalker in your living room aspect that he wanted to convey, not who owns who or what exact brand would be advertised.

Oh, CONGRESS is worried about privacy? While still conspiring to shove SOPA through the back door?

Yeah well said. Isn't it obvious they just want power and do it by lathering it up with rhetoric like this? It is to me.

So what does Government Sachs do? They buy a ton, make a ton on the way up. Put out a scare, sell it short and make a bundle down. I mean wow they can just manipulate investors like that.

Yeah it's a rigged game, imo.

You need to get a grip. x86 means 32-bit and/or 64-bit depending on context. You know, context? Really important and useful part of communication.

Yeah and anyway, 32bit cpu can actually use 8GB of RAM using bank switching, which has existed for a long time. On a dedicated device like a game console, bankswitching is probably feasible. In fact that wiki page says "In video game systems, bank switching allowed larger games to be developed for play on existing consoles."

But yes, context was important. x86 also means x64 here.

Edit: or Memory segmentation would be for x86.

Maybe before complaining about how Bill Gates is spending his money you should at least listen to the video. Or better yet, you should try spending some of your pittance (and I have no idea how much you make, but it's a pittance compared to him) and try to solve these problems.

Yea, I read that business model too. I'm playing NWO now, and have a Rogue at lv 60. I did not feel like I had to pay to win or get my char to that level. but again, when someone complains about playing a little bit of cash for a game that's free I don't see how in the end there is any difference.

Many people seem to think that when a Free MMO comes out that it is free. But they all fail to understand that it takes servers and bandwidth to run those games. nothing is really free in the end.

Yeah the huge amount of costs Cryptic has incurred deserves respect and consideration. I haven't even played NWO but I play on buying a few smaller items just to thank them for developing a PC MMO. It's not my ideal game of course but I've been reading a lot of good mini-reviews including your getting to lvl 60 seems like a positive vote too.

I agree though that pay2win is a bad PR move and I wont pay for that, but I won't PvP in it..
