News Comments > GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble
35. Re: GameStar: Crytek in Financial Trouble Jun 22, 2014, 20:12 LittleMe
 
I think the piracy of Crysis 1 was a good sign that while there was demand for their product that they just needed to improve quality? It wasn't a good value to buy it but it was cool to look at and entertaining to play for a while. By poor quality I mean terrible performance, weak story and terrible post-release patch support for multiplayer.

I agree with TB's observational guess that Sony didn't want the PC version to the best, graphically. $10 sale please.

I'm sincerely hoping the WD2 will be much improved. It was a good first iteration (while recycling many game mechanics) and now they need to improve a lot with it. There's a lot of money to be made in this genre.

Yeah the idea of 'mining pools' is counter to the goal of decentralization. The pools are centrally managed so do away with them please.

The market is pushing TV to evolve with Amazon/Netflix/etc but the dinosaur government mandated duopoly will cling on for a long time, sucking our wallets dry.

The idea of channels (since you guys are discussing it) needs to change or even die. We don't need whole channels when they just produce a few good shows and the rest are not. We can now push a button to watch what we want to, unlike 20th century technology. It's more efficient this way too. Networks might become more like publishers in the future where they back certain shows that we buy or select, etc.. Who knows but I do know we need to allow the market to change and not support the status quo.

It's not all good or bad, imo. It's going to be a blessing and a curse. Sometimes there will be games that can be had or further developed that wouldn't have happened without early access. Then there are games that are going to be ea games that fail. Use it when it suits your needs and don't when it doesn't.

The current antiquated system of a credit card number with expiration date is woefully inadequate. Get a string of numbers and you can steal from an unknown stranger... What a tantalizing carrot to incentivize crime. Same with social security numbers - entirely antiquated number system that is supposed to identify someone but again incentivizes easily executed identity theft.

Why does our country so resist these changes? Oh yeah, the authorities protect and regulate us so we can continue to use these terrible systems. Fail.

News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V for PC This Fall
56. Re: Grand Theft Auto V for PC This Fall Jun 10, 2014, 15:15 LittleMe
 
Good news, surely. I too had given up hope for PC love considering six months had long passed since release with no further announcement. I did say here a long while back that the delay might be for next-gen treatment but it was pure speculation but money talks and it would have been stupid of them to not release for PS4/X1/PC considering how much money they stand to make on it.

Otherwise I have one request... Please make it a good port! There's reason to think it will at least perform well considering that the PS4/Xbone are so close to PC hardware.

1. Cable Companies Are Astroturfing Fake Consumer Support to End Net Neutrality. Jun 7, 2014, 15:02 LittleMe
 
Let there be no doubt that pro-net neutrality has been funded by corporate monies for a long time now. Who do you think pays for all the supportive articles? Google/Amazon/ebay/etc etc etc.. Call them trade groups or lobbies or whatever you want.

It's an easy formula. Write populist articles that make it seem like the sky will fall while showing no actual law. "Save the Internet" - doom and gloom scare tactics. Both sides want the government on their side instead of a competitive open market. Corporate socialism at work.

Paragraph one addressed the story. Paragraph two addressed those who put most or all the blame on the corporations. Maybe the second wasn't a necessary stab but I wrote it anyway.

The systematic state surveillance in our country is more of a reflection of our socialist society than it is about the corporations who are forced to comply. Socialism is the inevitable product of thinking that the government needs to solve our problems. It is the product of 'my will be done' thinking and not 'thy will be done.'

There are those who use every opportunity to put all the blame on the corporations and none of it on the government because they are in denial that they also want the government involved in every aspect of our lives. They just want an enemy and corporations are the faceless enemy to boost their ego where they can be morally superior at every turn. Easier to put the blame on others rather than look at how they themselves try to control society through the violence (or threat of) of government control and use good-sounding intentions to do it.

Seriously. Netflix is playing them. End users are paying them. Yet they can't seem to scrape funds together for improvements?

Why would they make improvements when they can exploit their government-granted monopoly at both ends of their network?

Different network protocols. The XB1 controller uses WiFi-Direct, from what I understand. The 360 controller used a custom wireless protocol.

According to this page:

"The Xbox One controller does not use WiFi Direct for any of it's communication. The controller uses a proprietary wireless communication protocol that is optimized for gameplay and voice chat.

But again, a 'protocol' doesn't exclude the possibility we can use the same X360 wireless adapter on PC for the XB1 controller. The protocol is not determined by the wireless adapter but the drivers and software. Different frequency ranges however probably would exclude the possibility.

Here on this page:

All in all the Controller seems to be dual-band and even ac/a/b/g/n capable and seems to try to connect to the console via WPS/Wifi-Direct,

So the pc's USB wireless X360 controller adapter probably should or might be capable of working fine with the XB1 controller.

But no word on a wireless option, so at the moment, useless for me.

It might work with the same wireless PC adapter that the X360 controller used...? Not sure but it makes sense. Uses same wireless frequencies?

So why not enable them for the original controller? oh yea, to gouge your customers into buying the usb thingie. So stupid.

What? Enable what for the original controller? Oh you mean a usb cable for the otherwise wireless adapter for the original X360 gamepad?

Either way I'm happy for the X1 gamepad drivers. I've been wanting to buy one since they did improve upon it. Now I have a reason to buy it.

I enjoyed playing it but I didn't play very long either. I'd call it a more casual MMO shooter with a good loot system. My main problem was there just isn't that much variety but again I didn't play it into the high levels. The zone events (similar to Rifts) seemed the be the highlight and while fun at first they got repetitive to where I just stopped playing.

I take it PGP has also since been corrupted though corporate takeover.

Corporate takeover? The NSA are feds. I'm guessing you and many millions of others voted for representatives that vote to keep the NSA and embolden them.
