Yes, because 200 years ago we had to work 7 days a week, but thanks to those pinko commie libruls we only have to work five! Even God said you should only have Sunday off (who knew God was a commie?), but we take two days! In a row!

Actually 200 years ago and going back further, people worked less then they do today. Between 20-32 hours per week, sometime less even if they were vassals to some lordship.

I just hope the fucking music works. Something last I heard final fantasy 8 could not say was.
I have both the steam version and the original CD release from early 00's, and the music works fine on my end. If it helps I am using a XonarDG though.

There's already a hack for native 16:9. You can find it here. Thread on how to do it here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/292120/discussions/0/613938693081077373/

News Comments > The Evil Within > 30 FPS "Not Supported"

Allow me to refer you to this article on AC: Unity's decision.

...

So I stand by my original point that the designer very well might have decided on 30 FPS for that artistic reason.

Just because "something feels cinematic" doesn't make it so. That's like saying FL's/CFL's give "realistic light ambiance" but just ignore the flickering, shimmers, and waviness across text you're trying to read. And of course in extreme cases, the nausea and vomiting caused by it.

UHD wrote on Oct 9, 2014, 16:17:

I thought the Smaug bits were the best parts of the last Hobbit movie, to be honest. Any action-heavy scene looked more fluid regardless of the CG. It's when the action slowed down during excessively talky scenes (and Desolation of Smaug had a TON of talky scenes) that the movie started looking... off, and I was reminded this movie was filmed differently.

That's all subjective though.
Smaug wasn't done badly, though the way they did gollum was bad, you could see it then. And as you pointed out the non-action segments really showed exactly how bad it could get.

UHD wrote on Oct 9, 2014, 17:26:
The tech existed - Thomas Edison recorded his first motion pictures at 40 fps - but it was deemed too costly. 24 fps is a compromise, and as far as I know the actual framerate chosen was arbitrary.
Not really arbitrary, there's technical reasons including bandwidth for broadcast(same reason why movies are encoded region specific), the phase cycle for the electricity in the region 60Hz/50Hz, and a bunch of other crap.

Blue you could do a kickstarter for the website redesign.. ive seen that a few times
And why would that be a good thing? Blues site is probably one of the fastest loading sites out there, and there's a good reason. It's got a simple, fast design. It's not fetching 83 different scripts across 23 sites and all that crap.

Exactly. He probably feels 30 FPS is more "cinematic." Hey, many if not most people prefer movies at 24 FPS over 48 FPS. It's not at all unreasonable to suggest the guy actually feels a lower frame-rate helps set the atmosphere.

In the case of movies, there's a reason. At 48FPS the glaring issues with the CGI start showing up very easily, if you saw the first two hobbit movies in the theater you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. It wasn't a case of "how things looked" it was a case of "things looked unrealistic" because of how they were rendered. In the case of games, the lower your fps look the more unrealistic they look. Remember all those games that used motion blur to cover up the fps problem and make it look smoother.

I didn't say any of that, actually. I think it's funny because it's obvious hyperbole and you are taking it seriously as if they really think you are a mass murdering psychopath.

Comparing someone to ISIS/ISIL/IS is today's 'worse than Hitler.' It's a clue to disregard what they say, not a prompt to engage them further, and certainly not a reason to get angrier.

Strange, you did seem to say "I think it's funny that you take that sort of thing seriously." Or do you disagree that you made that statement. I guess you'll have to excuse me that I don't find it hyperbolic in any regard, I find it disgusting. Why do I find it such? Because this is going on now. People who use such statements have no empathic understanding of the issue, nor do they have any understanding of it.

And let's be realistic, it's not a clue to disregard what they say. It's a clue that they're ignorant, and should be called out on it. After all, if I said you were worse than "a pedophile who rapes children" you wouldn't consider that hyperbolic would you. Considering isis does that as well, I'm sure that just sits perfectly.

This is my first time hearing about this chick and her troubles, but according to her presentation she says a lot of her "tweets" are falsified photoshops reposted by aggressors. Actually going to her twitter, you can't see her tweets unless you're a follower of her, of which there's only about 3,000
Sadly they're not photoshops, the "protected unless you're a follower" only started up recently. Until then you could see everything that she posted. There's plenty of archive.today links that show that they're legitimate tweets from her. The women is a bigot, racist, and believes that her opinions are infallible.

Speaking of which, new shit coming down the pipe. This is effectively the IGF telling a indie developer that they're not going to win, games aren't judged on merit. The IGF of course is run by GDC, who also runs gamasutra. You know the site that Alexander(the women we're talking about who's been posting insane tweets), works for.

I find it sad and pathetic that people go out of their way to make the original comments in the first place. After all, you're saying that the ones being "labeled worse than isis" are already engaging in murder, rape, slavery, beheadings, genocide and mass murder. Doesn't that strike you a someone who has not only a logical disconnect, but an empathetic disconnect from the world at large?

I'm burned out on this "issue". I just don't care anymore. None of it applies to me in the slightest and, quite frankly, I'm tired of this bullshit being spewed on the pages of this site as well as others that I regularly read for actual news about gaming, not faux drama.
I'd generally agree, right up until the point where people are calling me "worse than ISIS." Or that they "have more respect for ISIS" people like that just make sure that I'm going to keep going, and I'm going to continue to piss in their cornflakes over it. But just remember, if you're tired of it, ignore it.

I highly recommend playing it in right environment - in dark and with headphones on but that's rather obvious for any horror game.
I've got a 5.1 system for gaming, and it works very well for immersive games like this. Though if you have other people around headphones work.

Yep it's a good game. 1.5hrs in, good atmosphere, good "shock moments" just like in the first Dead Space, good SE and music to each scene. Nice crafting system. I'm quite happy with it, hard is actually hard no hand-holding either. Mileage may vary, but over all I'd put it in 9/10 material. IGN just being whiners over it. I haven't run across any bugs perse either.

The only reason, the ONLY reason, anyone knows about this stuff is because of her ex-boyfriend's "woe is me" blog.

But, according to the timeline on that blog, all the coverage came before she cheated on him.

It's the sole source we have, and a pretty good one, as it gave people like Julio the endless "burgers and fries" bullshit he won't stop saying.
But clearly you aren't even aware of this. Just jumping in, making comments on things you don't even have the basic knowledge about.
No, people have long had suspicions that there was something going on in the industry that included nepotism, shilling, bribery, corruption and so on. His "woe is me" blog simply cracked the shell open on an issue that many people already believe existed.

You realize that much of the coverage she got among others--such as jenn frank occurred afterwards or while they were shacking up with other people in the industry right? This isn't new, it's been there since the beginning.

Seriously man, it's shit like this that continues to piss people off. Oh and if you need the context. That's a polygon writer saying that people who threatened others over PAX(burning it down and another who wanted to acquire nerve gas and kill people) and the attacks on a 13yr old were just a "couple of people going too far." While claiming that #gamergate is nothing but white males, who do nothing but harass people. The cognitive dissonance must be earth shatteringly painful.

It's really hard not to read most of these in anything but Simpson's "Comic Book Guy" voice.

10 minutes on any public gaming server will show that yes, the gaming community harbors a large number of misogynistic children who exist solely to tear down anyone "not them". It's shameful, and anyone who tries to change that culture has my support.

24-year-old gamer me would spend a lot of time and tears arguing about #GamerGate. 44-year-old me wants to throw up his hands and quote William Shatner.

Now, get off my lawn!
My sister is a hardcore gamer and plays a lot of FPS's(though her second favorite are RPG's), funny that the clan she plays with has zero problems with her, and she doesn't have problems with the BS that goes on either. It's probably because she also works in a male dominated job--federal prison guard at a medium/max security penitentiary here in Canada and can recognize the difference between a 10 year old, and a bunch of guys doing it because they do it with themselves.

The BS that's been going on enough that she started a new twitter account and jumped on board. The last time she was on social media she bailed on it all, and went to work in Alberta. That was because one of her ex's decided to get all stalkerish and is doing 5 years over it at Millhaven.

Dude, have you followed #gamergate at all? The misogyny is positively out of control.
And do you understand what an opinion is?

Lastly, here's a nice letter to Intel from the lead developer of Skyrim. Notice how he points out that people like you aren't the audience for Gamasutra, anyway.
Dude have you followed #gamergate at all? That misogyny that you keep going on about coming from shell accounts, bots, and especially sjw's who run around calling people shitlords, man babies, attacking women and minorities(thus the creation of #notyourshield). Perhaps you don't understand this.

Here's a nice response from Intel's CIO to the SJW crowd. You know, because the first thing that the sjw's did was rush-out, attack her, and claim that she was a "token women who was just hired on." You know this is the side that you're claiming is "good, kind, full of puppies and kittens." And wouldn't hurt a fly, funny how the bigotry comes flying out though.

What lie, specifically, are you pointing to?
Don't be ASeven and say something without a link and a quote so people have an idea of what you're talking about.
Didn't you read the articles? If you did, then you'd already know that the whole "gamers are misogynists, etc, etc, etc," is a lie. So was the "there is no collusion" bit either. After all I've already posted that nice little plagiarism picture for you, showing that the articles all contain 35-45% non-original content.

Oh and the reason why Intel pulled their ads? "Dramatic shift in their editorial content." So yep, even Intel can see the BS on the walls.

This just sounds so... I want to say unfair. Once you actually read user reviews and they all or most of them praise the game; you watch user gameplay videos and they look really good to you, you're basically saying you'd still wait for this massive discount. Wtf. :\
Unfair is what DA2 did to everyone, my fairness extends to offering them *some* money in return.

And why such a huge contrast to how the same sites reacted to dorritosgate, which was basically the exact same thing?
People had enough, simple as that. This has been a long time coming and this is what it's blown up into. FYI reddit had minimal influence on this infinity-chan and jayd3fox for running the campaign are the primary source on this. It's funny that jayd3fox originally did a few tongue-in-cheek bits until she got doxxed by the anti-gg side. And it seemed to snowball from there. Strange how neutral people like jon tron and TB who were neutral are now pro-gg after being accused of being "misogynist man babies and shitlords."

And I find the "but this is censorship" comments laughable. Gee, and advertiser realizes that someone is being hostile to their income, investigates, finds that they are being hostile to those they get income from and pulls ads is "censorship" elofuckingel.
