30fps? LOL I'd be disappointed with a game that is locked at 60fps. 120fps+ or GTFO.

30fps was a joke 15 years ago, so why is it becoming standard now?
120fps is where games become alive

I think what Blue is trying to say is that because red moons only happen once in a blue moon, then missing it makes you green with envy.......

Hiding under the desk simulator. It got boring really quick. Also the alien is a hopeless hunter, its noisy like a bull in a china shop, it never sneaks up on you, or lies in waiting, it doesn't even creep along walls. It like playing a game of hide and seek with a toddler in a Halloween alien costume, which they can't see out of properly. It just doesn't really feel like you do anything, and there kind of is no game here.

News Comments > DCS: Su-27 Announced
3. Re: DCS: Su-27 Announced Oct 6, 2014, 19:34 bigspender
 
If anyone has ever had any slight interest in planes of any kind, I highly recommend this "game/simulation".
I've been playing for about 2 years now, but I came from the Battlefield 2/3 crowd, because I got tired of constantly trying to get into a plane or helicopter only to be shot down a few minutes later. So it's nice to have a game where you are constantly in the plane. And it also has the best community of any game, period, since most people this attracts are generally more mature than your typical gamer.

Even if you are worried about a learning curve, since this is technically a simulator, it is a very rewarding experience, but with many guides on steam and youtube, you can be dropping bombs and missiles in 5-10 minutes. My suggestion is to get a friend to learn with, that's what I did, and it made learning and experimenting fun.

You will however benefit from having some kind analog input, even a cheap $20 joystick will be better than a keyboard, as the physics apparenlty close the real thing, so it would be like driving a car in real life with arrow keys, do-able, but tedious.

Do I understand that correctly, that the Flanker will be a free addition to DCS world, along with the Frogfoot? So if you install DCS world you'll have two free planes to fly?

DCS World actually has two planes for free already, the Su-25T attack jet, and a training (no weapons) version of the P-51D WWII fighter plane, called TF-51D.

The flanker pre-order is currently $7.99 but will be around $10 to buy if you get it after release, as is with the other planes in that category, such as the F-15C, A-10A, Su-25.

Or you can buy the Flaming Cliffs 3 pack, which includes 7 planes one of which is the Su-27(and it will be upgraded to the standards of this stand alone package once released).

Really great fun, and the cool thing about all of these flaming cliff series planes (whether you buy them in a pack or separate), is that they are quite similar in the way you control them in the game, so if you have played with the free Su-25T (which is actually one of the most versatile jets in the game) you can easily get a hang of the others.


Also, you might notice that the graphics in the trailer are very very nice. Well that is a directX 11 upgrade which is coming out in a month or so as well. (currently the game doesn't look quite this good).

As good as this looks, going by the history of Alien(s) games, you'd be wise to wait for reviews.

I'm getting just a little bit fatigued by being a generic depressed white guy with brown hair, k-mart catalog model gone action hero.

sorry to burst your bubble, but compared to what goes on in the world, there are NO 'important issues regarding sexuality and sexism in gaming'. it's a non-issue as others have stated. it's imbalanced towards males, but that in itself is balanced because your target audience is males. you might as well be crying about gratuitous hot chicks in beer commercials. it reflects REALITY - dudes like hot chicks and there is NOTHING wrong with that. and the slut-shaming is really ridiculous. if you've ever known a hot chick in your life, they LOVE to show off what they got, so that also is not unrealistic. there is no problem here other than bored netizens with too much time on their hands.

Wow your logic baffles me. Using the logic you've presented, the following statements must be true:

It's ok to be racist, as long as the footage is being shown to racist people.

Some people do bad things, so its OK for everyone else to do them too. At the very least is normal to do nothing about it.

If you can't tell the difference between Spiderman's pose vs spider womans, then you might want to get your autism checked out by a doctor.

I don't think you understand what autism really consists of. 'if you dont agree with me youre autistic' Good job being more offensive and ignorant than the thing you're criticizing.

Whether you agree with me or not doesn't matter. People with varying levels of autism have trouble reading and expressing emotions (among other things) - and if you have the inability to determine various subtle emotional differences from the two images, you could be a candidate.

Milo Manara is known for erotic art, have a look at the soft porn in his wiki page. There is non spider women in basically the same pose. His illustration of spider woman is very deliberately sexual. If you can't tell the difference between Spiderman's pose vs spider womans, then you might want to get your autism checked out by a doctor.

Qubiod has summed it all up nicely. I guess Maddox is smart and knows how to start a war between both sides who are incapable of understanding the actual issue, since that will get him the most views and revenue.

This is actually really cool ;p (Ps, that kind of ribbed construction is likely more durable than most cheap tables too) Yes, cardboard can be extremely durable After all, they made car chassis out of that stuff once...

More interesting is if this gets a CAR cockpit kind of setup too, because for VR the correct position of wheel, pedal and shifter is extremely important. And if you ever tried, you know what a huge hassle setting up locations for that is.

I think using 4mm coroplast/corflute would be the way to go, it would last for ever. (provided you put out your cigarettes on it lol.

Even better would be if it was somehow foldable like a concertina, so you can hide it easily and even take it somewhere if needed.

Car cockpits would be the way to go, I'd imagine the market would be bigger too.
It's the only way I'll own a lambo

News Comments > RAYA Sound Engine
3. Re: RAYA Sound Engine Sep 1, 2014, 19:04 bigspender
 
They have another, and much better sounding example in their channel.

I guess the sound is horrible sounding in the Quake 3 demo, because of the acoustics in the level, its a rock based area so there is a lot of sound bouncing around.

Finally. I'm hoping new games won't have sounds that penetrate walls(as if no wall was there at all), but instead the sound will bounce and be only heard through the openings.

I think a lot people under estimate how important good audio is in games. Ever watched a deleted scene on a bonus DVD, how strange things sound without all of the enhancements, and music. It's not like graphics which are in your face obvious, sound is very subtle but just as important as graphics.

Also make sure you play this with a friend or two, or at the very least with randoms. It's built to be played with multiple people, its pretty tough if you are on your own, especially at the beginning.

Clever kid and proof that intelligence is inheritable. So if you're stupid, you're fucked.

I'd say it has more to do with having parents that actually engage with their child - instead of buying a massive SUV to protect their precious little babies, and then letting their brains rot in front of the telly for 18 years.

Genes would come in only at the olympic level.
