Looks awesome without a doubt. Didn't back it, but I think this was the first KS I missed.

I remember fighting with FMV decoders and Nvidia fixes to get FFVII running a while ago - I also sprung for the updated versions and am looking forward to some hassle-free nostalgia.
Yeah that was always a huge pain in the ass, gonna have to decide if I'll install Qhimm's stuff or not. It's been 4 or 5 years since I last played it, I'll see what it looks like later and go from there. The updates to backgrounds/characters/spell effects/etc that have been done by fans already is pretty good so we'll see.

If you're curious, look here: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php#c7

Well finally broke down and rebought FFVII/VIII even though I own it on PC-CD, sadly the CD's are starting to get kinda worn and they're not getting picked up on readers very well anymore. And ripping/swapping them is just a pain in the ass.

I wonder if there will be any interesting designs for Heigan. That guy could really throw a dance party!
Well played.

I just want the game for like $20 or so.
That's reasonable in my book. But I'm guessing they'll go ape shit and charge like $40 for it, I'm just glad I've got my originals still.

....yeah don't care.
Obviously you cared enough to make a comment in the topic though, so your care level must be exceptionally high.

Unfortunately it seems to not be the case...

As has been the case with Diablo 3's other bonus XP weekends, the boost will only apply to PC and Mac players.
Though that came from a third party, can't get any info from Blizz site.
To be honest, I trust 3rd party sites on things like that as much as I trust a 3rd party site to tell me that fire is cold, and water is dry.

Anyway, I will say that for those that are sitting on the fence. RoS does add quite a bit of fun. Adventure mode is great, and nephelem rifts are a hell of a lot of fun.

Hmmm, is this just for the PC and expansion pack or does the vanilla Diablo on the consoles get the bonus XP too? Back into GTA online lately but I could get into my second run thru Diablo for extra XP.
Going by their post, everyone who logs in get's 50% bonus XP for the weekend.

So is it true that everything (legionaries/sets) that drops binds to your characters so essentially there is no player to player trading anymore?
Pretty much. Since legendary items that drop and aren't useful are needed for crafting materials.

Has anyone seen the expansion on sale anywhere? I wasn't a super hater of Diablo 3, I got a good 40+ hours of fun out of it, but I've heard the expansion does make things quite fun with the adventure maps. But I also can't justify spending $60 on it. Maybe $30ish... But has anyone seen it on sale anywhere?
Not sure where you live that it costs $60, but around here(north america) it's $40 which is pretty much the norm for an expansion these days.

I get migraine from cinema 3D as well.. in the end, for people like us a test-run in a store is the only way to make sure we are compatible with the tech. Your speculation is not unfunded but even your specific medical problem has a technological fix (eye tracking and adaptive lenses)
We'll have to see, that's the only way in the end. A store demo of it would help. But I don't see stores lining up for it, and I don't see Oculus lining up and shipping out demo units to people to try out and see if the tech will work for them either.

NegaDeath wrote on Apr 2, 2014, 16:34:

It wasn't possible to hold true back then because the technology flat out sucked. The first flying machines were terrible too but we stuck with it (no I am not comparing the usefulness of the two). Motion sickness is largely a tech issue being resolved right now. Niche is probably an accurate assessment but novelty is opinion. Everyone who has tried it has been utterly floored by it. Not in a "this is kinda fun" wiimote way but a "holy fucking shit this is awesome" way.
Be realistic, we've also been hearing about it with regards to 3D since the 50's too. And it comes back every 10 years, doesn't catch on, and dies a slow death. And I remember the helmets in the 90's people saying the same thing, and the 3D stuff with the two different types of glasses in the 80's both polarized, and lensed, and people saying the same thing.

But much like 3D, the VR helmets won't work well for those of us who have serious brain injuries, especially in the occipital lobe. And while I can see the stuff in 3D, 10mins tops and I either get a migraine, or I'm ready to vomit.

No that's just you VR with proper presence is an absolute game changing technological revolution. And 1 step of many to the holo deck.
I heard almost word-for-word that same sentence back in 1996 when I started working in IT. It didn't hold true then either, it's not true now. The biggest problem with VR headsets are the novelty effect and motion sickness.

Wow, looks like /. isn't participating this year? A welcome change...


They would have been hung by their users again for wasting resources on shit when they're already wasting resources on the horrific beta website they're pushing users to
Probably has more to do with the fact that /. was bought out by a holding company. In turn they're trying not to piss off the users anymore than possible especially after the beta layout bit a month or so ago.
