How to design computer peripherals:
Give it a titanic name
Throw in extra zeroes in the name
Gun-metal grey
Throw in buzzwords like "sleek and stealth aesthetics"
Give it lots of flashing light options
Fancy mechanical switch wordplay
Extensive macroing ability which can potentially get you banned in online games
Bam, $200.
Asus took it one step further with adding a carrying case. Lol.

I don't know. By the name you'd think it would be a newer take on BF1942. However in the brief glimpses of gameplay we see, it seems more like Call of Duty, or BF4 with a WW2 theme. I'm not seeing much in the way of gameplay elements that are really 1942-y.

Which makes sense if the devs are referencing MoH and CoD2. But then it puts the name at odds with the gameplay.

Ahhh, I remember it like it was yesterday. Midway, jumping out of an airplane, then realising that I didn't know which button opened the damn parachute.

Good times.

News Comments > Tropico 5 - Complete Collection This Month
7. Re: Tropico 5 - Complete Collection This Month Jan 14, 2016, 05:41 PsychoMoggieBagpuss
 
I liked the tropico series. I held off on getting 5 though as it pissed me off the amount of stuff they cut from 4 to 5, and then tried to nickle and dime on the DLC adding it back in.
Reading the various community forums I wasn't the only who was annoyed by this. I'll see if they try the same thing again, if they do then no more tropico for me.

"single player gory of quake"?

Bollocks to that. While the original campaign was fun, that paled into insignificance compared to the absolute mayhem that quakeworld/glquakewworld was. Still play it now, ultraviolence and basewalk/aerowalk alongside some of the ztndm maps are still a great example of how maps should flow for pvp.

I got a pebble time. I like it. Battery life is a week though, not 18 fucking hours like the apple watch.
But is it accurate and do you have to be tied to an iPhone? I had an accurate and precise watch in the 70's.

I also swap between my TAG and a Raymond Weil dependent on what I'm wearing.

Yes it's accurate, whats the bloody point otherwise? I've got it tied to a samsung s6.
Lets not joke around though, it's a screen extender for your phone. Range is good. I've had the watch tell me that someones phoning when I've left the phone on a different floor. Still limited by the Universal Law that if you run to answer your phone, it's going to divert to voicemail as soon as you pick the sodding thing up though....

Steam tells me I've spent 44 hours playing it so far so it's definitely growing on me . Being able to move and rotate structures to elsewhere in the sector makes things a lot easier for when you have a facepalm moment and underestimate how much space you'll need.

14. Re: Anno 2205 Released Nov 4, 2015, 15:41 PsychoMoggieBagpuss
 
So I bought this as I (along with quite a few on this messageboard), have sunk a silly amount of time into Anno 2070.
Only had a few hours of it so far, while it's slicker it's not grabbing me as much as 2070 did with the different factions and personalities.
Hopefully it will improve. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game, it's just that Anno 2070 with the deep ocean expansion was the proverbial dogs nuts, whereas this one isn't quite there yet.
With these guys I'm sure there will be DLC for this, if they provide an extra faction like they did with Deep Ocean (Tech faction, geniuses and underwater building shit) then it will replace 2070 for me.

They've basically fucked themselves here for any future pre-orders of games. No one in their right mind is going to purchase any future releases until they've seen the post-release reviews. Talk about an expensive mistake.

Truth is, I hated Wing Commander when it came out and thought it was a horrible game--felt as though I'd wasted my money. Quality of the graphics and video was horrible--a product chained to the technology of the day.

I'm sorry, which games released in those days exactly had better games/"video" than Wing Commander? Because it was basically the best looking game that had ever been made at that point for the PC.

Seconded. It had great VGA graphics, both digital sound (via soundblaster) and midi (via Roland for those lucky bastards who had both). If you had expanded memory (only those people with the h/w installed or a 386 processor had it) then some additional features like active comms screens or your hand on the joystick in game responding to the inputs you're providing were there as well.
I'm really struggling to think of another game that came out at that time that was even close here. X-Wing didn't come out till '93 , Ultima 6 was out and no where near the graphics fidelity (that would wait until 92 with Ultima 7).
Seriously, what other games and what Wing Commander version are you thinking of it?

Richly deserved. Both CDP (the publisher and parent company of GOG and CDPR) and CDPR (the developer) have come a very long way over the last decade or so.
The fact that they've had this massive success while being strongly against DRM makes it even sweeter.

I loved alpha centuari. I like Civ 5. Beyond earth just didn't do it for me. Played it through the once but it didn't engage me like the earlier ones. Like others said it felt like a re-skin of Civ 5 with the fun removed.

Bit of a cliche, but I will wait and see if Rising Tide makes the game FUN....

News Comments > Oculus Rift Controller & Xbox Partnership Announced

The controller is the only thing that makes sense. You can't see in front of you. You need a simple control scheme that you can navigate without looking. Devs have already tried other options with their dev kits; take it from someone who has used them, anything more than a controller really doesn't work very well.

Even as a touch typist, I'd be hard-pressed to perfectly work a keyboard completely blind when it comes to games, since it's a different mindset and muscle movements than typing out text.

100x this. I have both a DK1 and DK2. Mouse + Keyboard is a pain in the arse when using them as if you take your hands off the keyboard at any time and lose your position then you end up taking the headset off to relocate them.
A controller is a lot easier and the best of current options available. The STEM stuff looks interesting, but it's while off being finished. Obviously haven't tried the Oculus touch peripheral yet.
