The Lego Movie was a disjointed affair redeemed by a catchy song and a few jokes, it obviously went through several ending revisions before they finally settled on the weirdest one possible. Fun movie but not something I would give awards to.

You obviously didn't get the subtle subversive undertones in the film. It's a brilliantly subversive film that makes fun of our consumer society in the best way possible. Humour.

President Business FTW!

It's amusing that you think the movie is somehow deep enough for people not to grasp.

Oh...I see. So you got the message but you what? Hate humanity? Felt the urge for an ad-hominem attack?

Any FPS game could be converted, all you need is another independent "look" finction seperate from the mouse. Then mod the UI so it re-arranges itself out of the corners, so it can be seen while wearing a headset. that's it. it could be hard as fuck, it could be impossible, or it could be entirely plausible if there was a company that took the lead to corral everyone using the "right" standards such as a universal FOV/sensitivity: It should mimic head movements 1:1 as default, so that all muscle movements A) feel natural, immersive and demonstrate presence. and B) your skills will transfer from title to title as all movements will be the same.


AFIK Valve is already working with Oculus on an SDK for the Rift and (I assume) other VR devices. Im not sure what you are talking about, the decision to support the device is up to each game developer. You can't reverse engineer support for old games without the source code for each game.

"I doubt you'd be raped and murdered in front of 2000 people" and she replied with "Well they're all white males" was... I can't imagine living with that kind of world view. It must be really depressing.



What world view? That's not a world view. That's racism. Imagine the uproar if a white woman had said that on record about black males.

Nice misleading title there. What point were they trying to make, exactly?

Why is the title misleading? They went to the Oscars dressed up as women while tripping on acid. Why does there have to be a point beyond that?

i've tried those demos, and none of them give me the feeling of movement freedom like WindLands does. No other game has made me go "OOOOOH SHHHHIT" out loud repeatedly completely involuntarily. It was one of those "Mario64 moments" except even more immersive.

and i don't know the technical word for it. An application that's designed to hook a game and hijack the control inputs in between the player and the game... "middleware" just sounds right, as it's getting in the middle. but whatever, that could be wrong but my point stands: if Steam can develop a system, like a community of game devs that can submit their game code to valve, which would then in turn add proper HMD VR implementation, that would set them apart from ANY other competitor in the field. If Valve makes steps to make use of their market dominance with PC games with regards to VR, they'll cement themselves as the leader in VR for decades to come.

No other company could come close, whatever service has the games wins. If valve figure out a way to make the games happen, to open up their current catalogue of tens of thousands of titles... then it would be the superior service. even if the headset turned out to be inferior to the competition.

You are daydreaming again Slick. You can't expect hardware manufacturers to create application independent user interfaces, it's just not viable (or profitable if you like). At the moment all we can hope for is that someone (Oculus maybe?) brings a decent consumer product to the market. Something no one has done yet, yes not even Oculus and no the DK2 doesn't count. The rest will take care of itself, if the product is good and popular enough developers will be falling over themselves to support it. As for older games, well you know today's climate as well as everyone, how many AAA studios support their games beyond a few patches these days???

I realize this isnt taken that seriously and that the 970 is supposed to be nice beast of a card, but I do love it when nerds stick it to corporate America. Lying to your customers is bad idea.

yeah that really was an inhuman comment. dude sounds like a stereotypical SJW - lashing out at the du jour cause without once considering what the actual truth is.

Incidentally there is a line in the movie where his wife cries and implores Kyle to return to his family, that she needs him to "be human again". From what Ive read of his autobiography the guy had some serious issues, even though he was pretty much portrayed as an all-american-hero in the film, his autobiography is unabashedly self-promoting and narcisisstic in the extreme.

I actually liked Clint's film even though he portrays Kyle as a straight up naive hero who loves his country more than he loves his wife or his family, precisely because it doesnt try to tell any version of the truth other than the one that Kyle tried to paint of himself.

A sociopath? A hero? We will never really know, the point Im trying to make is that truth is too often in the eye of the beholder.

First, the OGL requires all content you use to be accessible in its original form by the users of your product. This was not done. So the guy was in direct violation of the licensing. Secondly, the new 5e generators (more than just the one here) that got letters were all using verbatim sections of the basic rules or the PHB. Since there is not a license for 5e yet (WotC says springtime for more info), they were all in direct violation. Not much gray area here.


Was he making money from the site? No? Yeah looks pretty black and white to me too dude.

Haven't seen Boyhood yet. The Imitation Game is a good flick, and Cumberbatch is awesome in it. Birdman was just brilliant and lol funny, American Sniper is standard Eastwood fare, brilliantly directed and overall a decent film but something about Chris Kyle's blind patriotism felt forced. Still need to see the Hawking movie and Selma.

Do these patches roll out on PS4 as well or do they do a separate patch for consoles since they are so different? Sorry for the ignorance. I just started playing this last week.

PS4 patches tend to be about a month behind the pc release. They include most of the same things, except for seasons.

Also, we can trade to our hearts content. I actually prefer it to the pc version now, especially when Those Motherfucking Nemesis start showing up.


Thanks nin! I have no idea what a nemesis is though. Going to look it up.

Basically when someone on your friends list who plays is killed by a white level monster, there's a chance it hops into a portal (blink and you miss it) and shows up in someone elses game, as a boss.

When the controller starts rattling, and you hear this low chanting/moaning, you MIGHT want to clear whatever area you're in, as things are about to get crazy.

edit: And they always show up at THE WORST time, right when you're in the middle of something else. I suspect this is not an accident.

edit again: If you look at the bosses name, you can see which of your friends it belonged to, and if you manage to kill it, you get a nice drop for you and your defeated friend as well.


Goddamn it. Im so envious. I actually want to play the PS4 version of Diablo3 because it sounds like it's actually fun. (How do you chat in game though? I imagine it's quite hard without a keyboard)

History backs me up.

Just fine? If by that you mean that humanity will survive, you are probably correct. I wouldn't call it 'just fine' though. I doubt that people in Syria and Iraq are doing 'just fine'. I doubt that the people in Ukraine are doing all that great. We never learn from history, we are colossal fuck-ups. Its not, just fine.

In today's climate of instant media coverage, and mega corporation media ownership why are you people surprised? This shit is worldwide, you can run from it but you can't hide. People are trading their freedoms for security and they are doing it willingly. It doesn't matter that the security threat is overblown way over proportion, most people are living in a fantasy world anyway. Just turn on the tv and see the endless procession of 'reality' TV fantasy and MTV soft porn. We are decaying as a culture, we are devolving as species. We are fucked.
