Also, Doom was fucking fast. It was faster than any iD game ever released before or since.

Eh, not so sure about that. Quake with strafe jumping is pretty damn fast.

Yeah well there was no jumping in Doom, so there is that. However Doom is definitely not slower than Quake, up until fairly recently Ive been playing Doom on Zdaemon (which is as close to the original Doom2.exe gameplay as it gets) and trust me on this it's insanely fast paced.

I don't know man. In my opinion Quake 2 is still the fastest game to date. That or Quake 3 with the CPMA mod. By fast I mean fast paced.

I mean, take a look at this:

(granted this is Quake 3, I think unmodded?)

This is sick.

Quake speed

Quake1 > Q3 > Q2. (in terms of play speed).

I don't remember the exact numbers. But it's around 30 the eye's see at.

The reason that this in-accurate type statement exists is because they used to shoot movies at 24 frames for cinema/tv, people then made the leep that this ment that was optimal for human vision.

the reason that 24 worked, was because it was largely stable - there is nothing worse from an immersion point of view than having varied frames (without a sync).

its a in-correct statement however, as verno points out - your eye is pretty much the most advanced optical device in the world.

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous Powerplay Update Next Month
46. Re: Elite: Dangerous Powerplay Update Next Month Apr 26, 2015, 14:27 Theo
 
oddly, the whole hotas thing is the thing that limits my playing.

I have a X52 pro, its on my shelves next to my desk, ive played rather a lot of Elite with it. the thing is, that the whole experience is a bit of a "event".

Meaning, i have some psychological thing going on that when i come home from work, i CBA to plug in my joystick; and setup my desk, its such a small task YET i make it barrier to playing these days. I suppose when i get home from work, i just want to turn my brain off, click a icon and play something without thinking to hard - Ironically, my go to is EvE and warframe... hehe (neither simple games).

Elite is a fucking wonderful game tho, anyone who likes real sandboxes, and has and imagination will love it.

I tend to play elite only on holidays and weekends when i feel like setting my desk up to make it feel cool... its odd that something as simple as pluggging in my already bought and paid for joystick makes it a barrier to playing what is a excellent game

lol

This statement doesn't clarify much, without comprehensive performance benchmarks. Do they mean low graphic settings with a 660 for 1080@60 fps? The 660 is a slow card! Are low graphic settings comparable to PS4's graphics or less?

How come their 4K@30 fps to 60 fps hardware suggestion jumps so dramatically? SLI 980's are far faster than a GTX 760.


4k is a massive jump in resolution?

It's the same resolution. Try reading what I said again. The only thing that changed is 30fps to 60fps. My first paragraph mentioned 1080p so that's where you mixed up the two paragraphs in your mental blender.


Believe it of not the FPS jump is that hard mate; i have a 144hz monitor and making it run at 144/ over 60 changes the performance demands on the cards by a crazy amount....

Loving some of the changes. The dye is great, coming from GW2 where I can color everything. Justice system is cool, loving stealing from merchants and outrunning the guards. Been crafting and exploring and doing side quests and forgetting the main quest....just like Skyrim. So...yeah, it's an Elder Scrolls game.


Looking forward to phase 2 of the justice system where players can police bounty's them selves

28. its not so bad now.... Mar 17, 2015, 14:55 Theo
 
So I've been playing this lately, might as well chip in...

the game at launch was not very good, not very good at all. Lots of bugs, (lets set the subscription model aside for 1 moment); class balancing issues and unresponsive combat... etc. I am happy to report that most of the REAL issue with the game have been fixed, its got lots of content, the end game is pretty fun for both pvp'rs and pve'rs; and the new justice system (phase1) is a big step in the right direction in terms of making it a elder-scrolls game (cant be one without a bit of random npc murdering , stealing and legging it from guards right?) the combat is also much more responsive and fun than it was at launch.

the buy to play model isnt gougey, its pretty fair and with the exception of repair kits and shard fill ups its all cosmetic, so thats great news.

Cant really compare with SWTOR, the f2P model there is really bad, they even charge you for UI eliments (want a second hot bar, pay for it).... there is none of that cheapness here so that's nice; on the other hand this is buy to play not f2p so i expect better (swtor is bad even for f2p with its model, stupid thing is its a great game for subscribers)....


If at launch you didn't like it cause of the bugs and balance and general content issues then you might like to take another look. If you didn't like it cause it wasn't 2 or 3 player skyrim you still are not going to like it... This definitely a mmo set in Tamriel and not a elderscrolls game in the traditional sense.

if you own it then id say it time to log back in and at least take a look... If you don't (own it) then will depend on the money and why you quit in the first place.

@Cutter, i don't know why i ask, but is it really necessary for you to be such a hostile influence every time you post on a thread of a game you perceive to be a failure? Here is the thing with on-line games, and modern games in general - they can improve, they can listen to the community's and do well. EVEN after a rocky launch and when a company makes mistakes, things can be fixed.

You might take the whole "wrong me once and ill troll forever" type attitude, but honestly man, that only limits you as a gamer, fuck as a person for that matter. honestly cant imagine why you'd want to be so negative all the time, its not cool - or even promoting good discussion on blues.

I'm not going to be happy if they release pay DLC that adds actual combat content. Right now it's just a space trucking simulator with some dogfighting if you want.

I take it either you don't have the game and are just re-quoting some shallow review, or don't play very often.

There is abundant combat in the game. If you don't want to fight NPCs in one of the many nav points, resource sites or conflict zones, you can always visit LAVE in open play and go up against the French contingent that have taken the system. Watch Kate Russell's saved Twitch streams from last week and see the human pirate blockade around Yembo preying on traders taking metals to the station construction. More combat content that some would like already.

That said, if you have the game, you'd have read the newsletter that describes the 1.2 update with Wings (part of the core game) which groups players together for combat, shared jumps, shared bounty etc. and adds a revised comms system and two new ships. This is released in three weeks, with a Beta in two weeks.

Frontier have made it clear from day one, all development would be in the core game for everyone and the two planned expansions would be ship exploration and planetary landing. Not combat - a pre-existing core game mechanic.

I think the trademark is probably for another platform (not PC or Mac) so either a lightweight console version or mobile version, but I very much doubt it'll be anything we'll see soon.


I honestly think people who say "there is no content" want to play scripted experiences; rather than sandbox games. Its like people saying they are done with skyrim post finishing the main quest after not touching the other hundreds of quests and saying its a 20 hour game.

There is good things to do in elite, at least in the context of WHAT a space fighting and trading game is, that's what elite was in 1984 and its what it is now.

Its ok to think not be fond of those sandbox type experiences; but i wish people would understand WHY they are not fond of them rather than saying "there isnt anything to do".

A mate of mine bought the game and stoped playing after a week, i asked him what he didnt like the answer was not disimlear to the above (trading is really dull, i just go between point a and b).

So i asked why he didnt do something else? his answer ?
"its the only way to make money"...

What was he going to do with the money? thats right, buy a bigger ship, to do more trade runs with.

Ive got a few decent ships (a cobra, and asp); and ive not toughed trading once. Bounty hunting is fun and i don't get bored.

This. Although the auction house was a huge fail, trading was an integral part of the Diablo experience.


Yher what was D2 with that russian trading forum experiance... ;-)
(being stupid now, but there is some truth in that).

I am torn on the trading thing, on one hand id like it but on the other hand i like finding my own gear, and with the smart drop system, thats totally achievable. (last season i got my optimal build, without leeching of others).

trading within the group still works, and frankly d3 has bigger issues to solve right now.

970 crew checking in, its amazing, basically as fast as a 780ti, for almost half the price - mile less power and almost silent most of the time.

very good card.

Nvidia's real advance here is how they can make these cards on the much cheaper smaller dye with same performance as last gen and the heat performance, mine hardly turns its fans on.

It's cool that Steam offers this, but game broadcasting is pretty bandwith intensive, so I hope this doesn't further burden their already pretty taxed bandwith availability.

Or is it purely peer-to-peer?

Stream has to go centrally, otherwise you'd cripple every streamer with more than 5 or 6 viewers.

Anyone know if this works with none steam titles that are launched via steam?
