I may return to PC gaming eventually but for now, I'm enjoying the console scene.

Well you're definitely not alone, at least. Blue's and a few other previously PC centric sites that I visit have been shifting over to console gaming for a while now.

Developers that neglect the PC as a platform are starting to get free passes everywhere but PC hardware sites at this point.

The old timers all seem to be giving up on the PC and going to consoles. But PC gaming is getting a lot of new blood as well. The main place you can find a lot of enthusiasm for the PC is on reddit. Lots of long time console gamers posting pics of their first gaming rigs, etc. So even if the userbase of Blue's and other sites abandon the PC, I think it has a bright future.

Any word on consoles?

Yes. They suck.

Not just a word, but the final word on consoles. If your consoles aren't covered in a decent layer of dust, you're simply gaming wrong. Or maybe you're just OCD about cleanliness.

When I see numbers like that I can't help but see a lot of padding.

It makes me think of the mediocre Radiant AI stuff from Skyrim. I'm more partial to fewer, meaningful quests with content than 100 collection quests and other crap. Unfortunately it seems to be a minority opinion these days since gamers at large just eat it up.

You have a lot of achievement hunters who just want more carrots to be dangled, with little thought to whether what they are doing is actually adding anything to the game other than making them feel like they got more hours out of it and thus somehow a better deal.

It's a lot easier to justify a $60 purchase if you can claim you have "780 hours!" in the game or something like that. Even if most of that was pretty meaningless fucking around.

Hours of real engagement is a lot better metric than hours of "well, it's more fun than cleaning the bathroom."

Number one game among fratbro date-rapists and cops.

But seriously "deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever" isn't saying much.

The lesson to be learned is to get your performance information from sites doing actual benchmarks, not from general remarks by game developers. Only then will you know how things are going to perform and how they are going to scale. To buy a game without knowing for certain that you're going to get acceptable performance, either because your rig is insane or because you've seen real performance numbers, is some Grade A retard shit.

WoW = People rushing to throw tokens up and undercutting like crazy to get in quickly before the market gluts.

You can't undercut anyone, Blizzard sets the price, and the person who puts up the token gets the price they listed it for, not the price the person bought it for.

DX12 sounds good. Hopefully they really take advantage of the performance gains there.

Hopefully the game is good and not a crappy port like GTA IV was.

Yeah if only there was some way to know before buying if a port was decent...

I hope it's not another game ruined by "shaky cam" gameplay like they did with kane and lynch 2.

Where did you come up with Kane & Lynch 2? It came out before Human Revolution, and was made by IO Interactive not Eidos Montreal. Why would Kane & Lynch have anything to do with this game?

I wonder what gameplay will look like, and what engine they're using.

Dunno about what engine they are using but the AMD graphics twitter thing said it would have DX12 support.

Looks fantastic. I need to go play through HR again before this hits. Haven't played the Director's Cut version yet. Didn't they add some ways to avoid the boss fights?

There are some more mechanics to them now so you're less likely to get boned by your choice of skills. Not completely skippable but there are more options.

The best way to avoid the bosses is to plow right through them. Make sure you have both levels of the Typhoon aug and some Typhoon ammo before the first boss fight. The game is very generous with augmentation points so you shouldn't have to sacrifice anything meaningful to get these.

Run up to boss. Use upgraded Typhoon twice. Boss is dead. Move on with game.

That Star Trek Renegades thing looks pretty good for a fan fiction thing. Excellent cast by fan project standards as well.

Author claims it was running at 60fps @ 4k, but his own screenshots of the settings show that the 4k display they are using is at a 30hz refresh rate with VSync enabled. That would not allow him to run 60fps.

The options menu looks good... lots of choices in there. We'll have to see what happens when people with more run-of-the-mill rigs get their hands on it.

You are assuming the screenshots of the settings is what he ran with. If you look at the screenshots closely you can see he is changing the settings as he is going through them (the 1st and 3rd screenshots show different memory settings than the 2nd).

So its possible that he was wrong, but its also possible he played around with the settings while going through them. We really don't know

Yes, it's possible VSync was turned off for a time. Just pointing out that there are some inconsistencies so people looking for performance information may want to wait for a more technically minded site to get their hands on the title.
