Are any of you guys who are enjoying ME:SoM using KB&M? I don't like using my controller with third person games and the Batman series didn't 'feel' quite right with KB&M.

I'm using keyboard and mouse. Feels very responsive compared to Batman, at least to me.

Good. Any mouse smoothing, acceleration or other port symptoms?

Well, since it's not really an FPS or even remotely aim-sensitive, I couldn't really tell if there was any mouse smoothing or acceleration going on. I didn't much like the feel of aiming the bow, though. Not sure if it was mouse acceleration or what. But the way it works, you spend almost all of your time while aiming the bow in a really strong slow-mo effect so it didn't really affect my ability to chain headshots.

Whoever was the cunt that made that car bomb threat, I hope he is found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. These threats help neither side.

And speaking of Leigh Alexander, have a compilation of saying from this SJW woman. Because if anyone can talk about ethics, it surely is she.

Leigh Alexander is an irredeemable piece of shit, there's no doubt about that.

That's all that this interview really is - someone makes a small very niche game complaining that few people are interested. Which is what happens when something is small and niche.

Unless you know somebody, in which case a single article on a gaming news website can make all the difference in the world, even for a simple non-games like this guys visual novel, or Depression Quest.

That type of favor currying is commonplace in many industries, but that doesn't make it okay, or any less frustrating for someone who sees equivalent projects take off because of insider connections, while their project flounders.

Fuck yeah guys, time for another edition of Morality Score!

This tower defense game scored an 85%. It lost some points because you blow up aliens, and there is some rough language!

Woe be to the immoral heathens who embark upon such a violent and debauched journey!

I definitely would not want to be an indie dev in this environment. One pissed off Twitter personality can sink you. One games "journalist" who doesn't like you can ensure your game stays effectively buried.

Don't use a technical preview for anything remotely sensitive if you don't want MS to have that information. As far as I know, this isn't new. They do a TON of automated data collection for tech previews. They rely primarily on this data rather than manually submitted feedback.

I can see that partially, sure. A list of applications and how long it takes them to open, no problem. A list of your hardware so they can aggregate data and figure out what the most prevailing conditions are, sure.

What do they need your browing, search and file history for? What do they need your fucking PHONE CALL AND SMS DATA for?? To find out how to make WinTen run better?


That does seem odd, but it's hard to say what they are actually collecting and what they are simply "reserving the right" to collect. Cover-your-ass boilerplate shit mandated by legal, etc.

Allow me to point out that here is a AAA game with a strong (and fully dressed) female protaganist. Now I'll shut up.

Clearly this game is a misogynistic male power fantasy made by cis white males. While the character may APPEAR to be a strong female protagonist, she is at the mercy of the clearly cis Xenomorph and made to be a perpetual victim.

5.9?! wtf...

Yeah IGN is catching a lot of shit for that. They took some guy who apparently is not even a survival horror fan, and then had him play through on "Hard" difficulty.

Serial everything-hater Jim Sterling on the other hand called it one of the best horror games he'd ever played.

Some very polarized opinions on this one.

I remember when gaming used to be about games. Might be getting time to hang up the towel on gaming and take up a nice old-person hobby like photography. I have no interest in gaming if it continues along this route and becomes nothing more than a vehicle for social issues.

“Microsoft collects information about you, your devices, applications and networks, and your use of those devices, applications and networks,” the Windows 10 preview terms state. “Examples of data we collect include your name, email address, preferences and interests; browsing, search and file history; phone call and SMS data; device configuration and sensor data; and application usage.”

AWESOME!

I knew it all sounded too good to be true.

The reviews are pretty negative.

That's not what I've seen. If anything the reviews are all over the place. Some people really fucking love it, other people seem to hate it.

The story, despite the retcon (ripley daughter), seems to not be too over done.

Ripley's daughter isn't really a retcon. She was mentioned in a scene in the Special Edition of Aliens back in the early 90s. She died in her 70s or something while Ripley was still in cryo.

That's not what I mean. I already know her daughter exists, since I have the special edition. What I mean is they made a 'connection' to the films and are making up her daughter's story.

Basically its not stupid crap like Gearbox's childish attempt at story telling in ACM, but its also not necessary.

I don't really see a problem in fleshing out an existing character rather than inventing a new one. In the Shadow of Mordor thread people were bitching and whining about them making a new dude instead of using some existing character. Game developers just can't win apparently.

So as far as I know, Microsoft hasn't announced any real benefits that Windows 10 will offer. So why buy it?

It's Windows. It'll be the same as we've seen for decades. Iteration on what is already there. Little improvements throughout. The occasional major revamp of one or two elements. There's never really been any incentive to buy each and every version of Windows.

I upgraded from Windows 7 to 8/8.1 because I got it for free and the myriad tiny improvements throughout were well worth the time invested in installing it. But if I had to pay full price, I wouldn't have bothered and would have just waited for 9/10.

The thing is, operating systems are not sexy. They are very difficult to market because there is nothing revolutionary about them. They are an evolutionary, iterative product. They have thousands of tiny features, many of which get silently improved from version to version. Change it too much, and people freak out at the idea of change. Look at Windows 8/8.1. Don't use the Metro crap and it's basically just Windows 7 with a few improvements here and there. But even that caused people such as yourself to have the opinion that it's a completely broken OS that sucks.

So, yeah, there's no "must install right now" factor to it, but there never has been for Windows. You've always been fine being a version or two behind.
