Perhaps the inevitable Enhanced Edition will turn back on the fancy shit. But from the sounds of that anonymous dev, it's features they cut entirely, rather than just disable.

Kind of disappointing actually, I thought a 980GTX would be needed at a minimum really, as I was expecting the CV to be 1080p per eye. True, we don't know the CV specs but as a few have already guessed at in this thread the 970GTX gives s a good indication of what they might be.

Im disappointed because 1080p per eye would be the bare minimum for the Rift to be of any use for us flight simmers.

I guess Ill be buying in at CV2 at the earliest, or maybe one of the Rift competitors could get there earlier.

I'm not sure what you mean "1080P per eye." OR CV1 is 1200P. Or did you mean you thought each eye would be 1920x1080? That would require a 6" screen of 3840x1080, and that doesn't exist. On the other hand, using two separate 1920x1080 screens in one head-mounted display is problematic. If they're misaligned by even a single pixel, then the illusion is ruined. That's extremely high tolerance and a lot more expense. The OR has always been a single screen, so I'm not sure where you're getting that idea from.

FYI the CV1 is dual screens. Each one is 1080x1200. Same spec as HTC Vive.

Nobody comments how the first action after this on Reddit, was shadow banning people mentioning Reddits CEO's wife ran a ponzi scheme ?

Eh that's a common conspiracy theory, but frankly, I don't buy it. I'm not shadowbanned and I've commented dozens of times in very public posts about the subject. If they were trying to stifle discussion about it, why would they just shadowban a small minority of posters, leaving the posts up, while thousands of others continue to discuss it?

Many of reddit's shadowbans are questionable, maybe even most, but there have been no concerted efforts to shut down discussion about their CEO or her husband's ponzi scheme. There are discussions all over the place about it, and people talking about it without repercussions.

The real problem with reddits new policies is that they cannot claim to stand against harassment but then allow mockery and harassment subreddits like ShitRedditSays that exist PURELY to link to other reddit conversations and shame the users.

Apparently they downgraded the graphics from the original E3 showing. The speculation is that once they discovered the hardware limitations of PS4/Xbone they were forced to downgrade the complexity of the games environments and effects. This shouldn't affect the PC textures though - I would still expect high resolutions there.

I can't find the post now, but I'm pretty sure they came out and admitted the graphics were downgraded due to console limitations.

purchased Kerbal the other day... went through the first tutorial okay. Got to the second tutorial (launch), and when I got to orbit, it told me to bring my map up to plot a path or some such. My map is completely blank except for starfield. Apparently this is a known bug. Then I read, while looking that up, that if I wanted to play the campaign, I'd have to run the 32-bit version, because it doesn't work in the 64-bit executable. Quit the game and never went back.

I don't know what you read, but it must have been old and out of date because there is no 64-bit KSP. They added a 64-bit test build back in the alpha but removed it shortly after it went Beta. Even then the "campaign" was playable in 64-bit.

Yeah. 64-bit KSP was not updated to 1.0. It never worked properly in Windows, particularly when modded. A fresh install of 1.0 will only have a 32-bit executable. The 64-bit Windows version of the engine they use (Unity) is notoriously shit and they can't do anything about it until Unity releases a version that isn't ass.

But the 32-bit version is absolutely fine unless you're installing tons of huge texture packs.

While younger employees may not have a monopoly on those things, they sure do have most of them, and accept a lower salary offer as well. It's hard to criticize employers for preferring younger employees who have everything to prove and haven't become complacent or cynical.

Maybe, but no money in the world can heal his hurt pride. He still has a big ego and getting fired from his own hugely successful show about someting he probably considers a small, unimportant "thing" ...

Hurt pride? You're joking right? The guy got canned, and the show ended because everyone who matters would rather quit than do the show without him. And then on top of that, people climbing on top of each other to try and sign those three to do a show for them.

That's a boost to ones pride if anything. These three guys and probably Wilman too will probably come out of this even better off, and maybe even better paid.

Because the RTS genre is effectively dead. People can be in denial about this all they want, but Blizzard's not going to spend more money on some big budget RTS after the mediocre performance of Starcraft 2.

Cool looking game. My days of playing online FPS are over though, getting too slow to keep up, and getting wrecked repeatedly is never fun.

What makes them too fast? I've found the learning curve for the pace is more severe now but once I'm in the zone that I do just as well as when I was younger. Getting into that zone usually requires a solid hour of play to almost warm up for lack of a better term though and I don't always have that time.

I don't know. They don't feel that fast, certainly not compared to the shooters I used to play, but I seem to do progressively worse every year. So I can only assume I'm slowing down. Maybe it's like you say though and I just don't put enough consecutive time in.

With any luck people will have learned their lesson on preordering and wait for reviews after the Unity shit.

Fuck preordering this game. Waiting for the inevitable "Enhanced Edition"
I'll wait for reviews... and maybe a small discount in the Summer Sale.

Edit: Who am I kidding. I don't even have time to play this. Too many other things in the backlog right now. Maybe I get it in Holiday Sale or next Summer Sale instead.

That's the way to do it with these guys. There'll be some enhanced edition that is cheaper and more polished a ways down the line. Better experience for less money? Sign me up.

Someone needs to drop the nail in AC coffin already. This series has gone on waaaaay too long. Has it already eclipsed Resident Evil? A franchise from the 90s that has numerous spin offs and sequels? lol

If people stop buying it, they'll stop selling it. People shitting al over something on Blue's News means nothing to Ubisoft or any other company if they still sell millions of copies.

wow you must be a genius.. did you figure this out all on your own?

Nah your mom helped me.

Amazon’s rapid growth is driving gentrification into popular neighborhoods such as quirky, traditionally gay, Capitol Hill. But Capitol Hill is becoming ‘less gay’ and LGBTQ hate-crimes jumped from 6 in 2011 to 19 in 2012.

What are they trying to say?

I think it was a mistake to not allowing flying mounts in the new expansion. I would come back and play if I wasn't forced to take 10 minute gryphon rides all the time, or trek out of my way to reach a place I could easily fly to. They thought it would keep people in the game, but they thought wrong.

Lack of flying mounts didn't really bother me because there was literally no reason to leave my garrison. I'm not sure what you were planning on doing with your flying mounts.

I think the larger problem is that it's Garrison Simulator 2015: Make More Alts Edition.

Oh, and I certainly don't see the Democrats as superior in all ways. Unfortunately they are in most though. Primarily because the Republicans take so many noxious positions in addition to the few good ones they have. The bad far outweighs the good there.

Yeah, even if a Republican came along with a good number of policies I agreed with, their pandering to the people who want an ignorant anti-science theocracy in our country would make it impossible for me to justify voting for them.

I can look past a few policies I don't like. I can't look past disgustingly regressive social ideals.

If we had a multiple party system, there could be a party for people who like certain conservative policies but don't believe in outlawing being gay or atheist.
