Just goes to prove that money just can't by class. The whole thing is pretty tacky. I think a 10 year old would have spent his money better.

Tacky? Were we looking at the same pics? I thought everything was pretty cool. The pool is gorgeous, the bar looks great, same with the garage, wine cellar, and kitchen. Probably the only thing I wouldn't have would be the candy dispensers. Nary a green carpet or plastic flamingo to be found.

That being said, I wonder how many of those people at that party have ever even played Minecraft...

Lastly, what is that weapon thing in pic 022?

Guess I just expected him to live a minecraft style house and was disappointed to find Notch living in a place that looks like a rich housewife's catalogue

ahh yes the old pre-order bonus, AKA holding already made content for ransom demand.

Someone should get Liam Neeson to sort this shit out.

Or, as previous iterations have shown, timed exclusive. Either way, it's not a big deal.


Depends which way you look at it. From my point of view its locked content, even if for a short time, simply because you did the one thing that customers should never do (buy before you try, or at least read review from a respected source). It's punishing the customers that are smart enough to know better.

Also, holy hell, there were girls at Notch's party! 90 ultra-nerds and a bunch of girls? I suspect an LA escort agency made some good bling that night.

In any case, I think it looks pretty sweet. Love his cars. RR Wraith, Ferrari 458 Speciale and I gigglefarted at the room with the 3 huge screens, bar, and pictures of Sean Connery and whatsherface from Dr No.

I'd rather it be done right on the first go, it's not like another few weeks will make much difference to us players. Also that gives me time to play dying light now

Havbe to admit this looks kind of fun. Mot fun enough for me to buy an Xbox, but fun enough to admire from afar. Not taking itself too seriously, just...fun.

+1 that's what games are all about and sometimes dev's and players forget that its about fun.

TBH the most off putting thing is the hard sell they are doing, the dialog from these dev's gets under my skin like a used car sales person.

Open software standards and a bunch of hardware different vendors catering to different levels of customer expectations is probably the best way to go with VR, so I'm all for this.

The question is, can they get it right?

I think this is my biggest concern: that a bunch of copycatters try to cash in and release subpar products that make people hurl, giving the product a bad name and crushing an nascent industry.
spot on. it seems like VR has to be tuned just right for it to work comfortably, nobody has been able to do it, not nintendo and not even oculus has perfected it. So I foresee that this kit will just make people feel sick and it could quite possibly tarnish VR.

Shame really that such censorship exists. If they replaced 'people' with 'zombies' - no one would bat an eyelid.

That's because there is a massive different between cold blooded slaughter of innocents for "fun" vs fighting for survival against a monster (that is already dead anyway).

In a game? What's the difference? You press a button, animation plays, scripts fire, particles fly from emitters, models play animations, red decal left behind... such difference, what amaze!

In case you didn't get my lame meme use, I am saying, there is no friggin gameplay difference AT ALL. You are arguing over how a model looks, not how gameplay is.

If you replaced all l4d zombies with babies, nuns and angels it would change nothing about the gameplay.

But there is a gameplay difference, as stated previously its a fight for survival with zombies. Nuns and babies obviously are no threat, unless they are zombie nuns of course...

And there you go, maybe they should just make it a zombie game and at least it might get some sales.

There are plenty of games where the so-called bad guys aren't monsters but other people, pixel representation of people. I play so many where I'm the hero, but in the end, end up killing more than the bad guy, sort of like our military does sometimes in the real. So who is the good guy and who is the bad guy? I don't know, but since it is pixels it doesn't matter to me at all, it's fantasy.

lol yes that's true, but nevertheless, you are still mowing down "bad guys" and the game usually makes it quite clear.

Good luck with that as long as the WW2 theater ain't finished yet. This is like trying to sell a Murcielago to some indigenous tribe in the Amazon rain forest. Wish they'd get a clue and make the roads first before trying to sell cars *sigh*.


The ww2 map is coming early 2015 I here.

TBH 60fps is bare minimum for me, 100+ fps is where games come to life. Lack of fluidity in games is probably the most jarring thing ever.

I will never ever buy a game that cannot do atleast 60fps.

framerate is everything, otherwise people wouldn't bother upgrading their graphics cards, they'd be happy with onboard gfx.

Are they still going to patch AC: Unity though? Because it seems like it would a nice game if it wasn't for the bugs.

i have obviouosly missed something here - people are freaking out because the game has single player that will occasionally sync with an online world to keep it dynamic?

Sounds like an awesome feature to me - this would have been awesome in skyrim, instead of making it into an mmo.
