I never knew he was a pilot!! Shit, I would dabble with vintage aircraft and helicopters if I could afford it, any day of the week! No wonder he said yes to the new Star Wars and Blade Runner. Aircraft cost shitloads of money to own and maintain

I don't get the WOW comparison. Other than the skill trees. Which I hate. Still love the game(now that it's fixed).

Where do I start?

Ok, just of the top of my head: art direction, art assets (mostly NPCs and certain mobs), cartoon PG13 story, no pentagrams, BOA, no PvP, simplified loot mechanics, simplified stats, skill tree (as already mentioned), etc. etc. etc.

Need I go on?

They'll put in some DRM that checks to check the UEFI make sure it's a licensed Steam Machine.

That's pretty cynical.

Not to mention wrong. Case in point: Steam OS can be installed on any machine.

This is the entire article:

Since Oculus got everyone sweaty over virtual reality, the focus has mostly been on games, and specifically PC games. But that’s been slowly changing since it was acquired by Facebook, and the Oculus Rift has started to be positioned as this ubiquitous device in the same way the smartphone is now.

That’s always been the plan, though. At his GDC talk today, John Carmack discussed the potential of mobile VR, and why it was the reason he originally started working with Oculus in 2013.



“Some people ask 'Why mobile VR at all?' It's a fair question, especially where most of the Oculus base is the hardcore PC gamer,” said Carmack as he started his talk. "We've got a ton of people working hard on it, but there's an opportunity to go beyond it. I can still say at GDC that VR goes beyond gaming.”

Carmack envisions a world where billions of people use VR, but he doesn’t think that can happen through gaming and PC peripherals alone. But billions of people already use phones, that’s a market that’s already around the scale he wants VR to get to.

Oculus’ current mobile venture is the Samsung Gear VR, which only works on the massive Galaxy Note 4. An updated version is in the works for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Yes it is this mind-blowingly short. And yes, as soon as we are about to get the point where John says WHY he thinks the future of VR is in mobile tech, the article ends.

Ah Journalism at its best.

I have a slightly different story from Shihonage, as I come from a former Yugoslav republic.

We had it pretty good in Yugoslavia. Things went downhill once the country broke up and the nationalists (in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia) started to deal in AK47 gunpoint politics. Tito's experiment failed. Had he lived a little bit longer and chosen a proper successor, things might have been different. But Yugoslavia's own brand of socialism whereby it played both NATO and the Soviet bloc, worked pretty good for a while.

Unlike the Russians who have recovered a lot under Putin (at least economically, if not politically) the Balkan states are doing terribly poorly on their own (the war in the 90's didn't help) what happened with Greece is only the start. The unfortunate truth is that for the big EU countries to stay wealthy they need poorer members to provide an educated but cheap workforce.

I lived in Europe for three years, courtesy of Uncle Sam--in the Mediterranean areas of Greece & Italy, mainly. I enjoyed the vacation, the people were great and I had a lot good times, but when I got back to the states I kissed the ground, I was so happy to be back...;) It's for certain that anyone who thinks they'd rather live somewhere else has no clue at all--there are so many things we as Americans take for granted that simply aren't available in many other Western countries. For instance, in Greece it took me 12 months to get a telephone number and phone through the state-run telephone company, the *only* telephone company--horribly inefficient. Renting a house with central A/C was impossible--I had to buy my own. In England, when you buy a car there are no lots full of cars to choose from and there are no demo drives, even--you pick your car from a catalog and order it, sight unseen. 6 weeks to 6 months is the average wait to drive it off the lot. Oh, and did I mention that people pay VAT taxes *on top* of income taxes...? These are just a few of the differences I noted during my stay in the late '80's.

In Russia, the economics are even worse, not to mention that Putin has Snowden in his pocket (which is why Snowden never releases any negative info on the Russian Federation--only America has free-speech law to protect people against government retaliation for what they say.) It isn't surprising at all that Snowden wants to come home--even to face a trial--and he would not be the first to burn his bridges and then regret it.

But from the time Snowden committed felonies by lying to the government about his background in order to gain employment with an NSA subcontractor....(the least of the felonies he has committed since)...Snowden has made his own bed. Sure, he doesn't really want to sleep in it, but he should have thought about that long ago...

This is the most ignorant, arrogant, patronizing and completely cherry picked bullshit comment I have read from you yet Walt. Europe has changed a lot from the 80's, but go ahead believing in your own fucking ubermensch superiority and please. Don't visit for a 'three year' vacation anymore.

The critical flaw with streaming is that there's lag. It makes inputs less responsive and means that you're too late to react to what's really happening in the game. Any game that requires actual player skill would suffer significantly. Also, to Stream really high quality graphics with no compression artifacts, you'd need an internet connection that I'm not sure exists or is affordable to us mortals.

really great creative writing but what does it have to do with this story

Shill off, mothershiller!

Yeah who cares about these fuckers. They basically stopped making proper games about 10 years ago. They focused on making money for EA, lots of it. For a while they did great, and now that EA has squezed them dry it's time to discard the shell of a once great and creative game studio, and bring in a new fresh one to turn into a money making machine.

They might be able to buy the reviews but they can't buy the players to fill their game. It really is more like Brink than Titanfall.

The article calls it brilliant. Do you think he was paid?

Seems like most here that bought it love it. Where they paid?



Why are some so convinced every review is paid?

Im not saying that every review is paid, or even that this one is, but when someone calls a game "brilliant" and "boring" in the same paragraph then there is something seriously wrong with that reviewer/journalist/person.

News Comments > Source Engine 2 Announced

I lost interest in HL when they went episodic. I got the Orange Box for TF2 (when it used to NOT be free) and for kicks installed episode 1 and 2 just to check them out. Lost interest about half way through...

Still HL1 and HL2 were very memorable, and I loved both games equally. Would have enjoyed a third game, this episodic shit just leads to fragmentation of story, feature creep etc.

One of the reasons the Squadron42 announcement had me spitting and fuming is of course related to all the episodic success stories which have come before it: the count currently stands at....zero.
