Romance is taken to a new level, I think. The start of a romance isn't kicked off and ended with sex. It's getting official earlier, building up slowly. It starts with flirting, then holding hands, then affirmation, etc etc. Neither is sex the endgoal.


Am I the only one who finds this kind of...disturbing? Who the fuck holds hands before declaring their intentions? Kindergartners?

8-core cpu and it'll still get hang ups upon switching screens..

my S5 is a pretty big disappointment from my S3.. my S3 was actually a better phone in a lot of ways.

That is very interesting to hear. I have hung on to my S3 exactly because it has been so awesome, particularly at multi-tasking, despite the fact that I have a small crack in the screen and I qualify for an upgrade with my carrier. Was thinking of finally upgrading to an S5 just before the S6 comes out because it will be dirt cheap. Not a good idea? If not I have been looking at a Note instead. One tablet/phone device to serve as my personal tricorder has a certain appeal.

Everyone I know with an S3 has a damaged screen. No joke.

My screen is fine. Ive dropped it a couple of times. But then again I have a cellphone guard case.

I agree that Bethesda's writing is really poor with reagards to Fallout3, but after the lackluster Oblivion it got much better in Skyrim and there are a number of quests which affect the gameworld in significant ways. Sure its nowhere near the quality of Morrowind for example, but it is a step back in the right direction and there are quite a few gems in there.

In any case the third Witcher definitiely looks like it will be kicking things into high gear with player consequence in an open world game format. If anything the competition and the popularity of Skyrim on the PC (as well as the lackluster popularity of ESO and the tired WoW quest formula) should indicate clearly to Bethesda that 'dumber' is not necessarily better. And if it doesnt, well its their loss....

Was hoping Elite would be Skyrim in space. Alas not to be.
Oh yeah. The same 3 voice actors reused for hundreds of utterly soulless NPCs, again. I really wanted that for Elite too. But take heart. I'm sure with Star Citizen's endless cash supply, Chairman Roberts will find a way to make it happen for his game.

Well I caved and preordered Elite yesterday. Cant play the main game yet, only the tutorial 'training' demos. Even if it turns out to be Eutrotruck in space I think Ill have fun with it.

Anyone playing this with TrackIR how do you navigate through the menus once you get them up, the arrow keys dont really work and the mouse appears to be disabled?

For TrackIr I've got menu movement binded to one of my hotas POV nob. Works brilliantly, with x55 and its gazzillion of buttons I truly don't have to use anything else then hotas, even galaxy map works fine. Take ages to set up first time thou
Btw there are special TrackIr profile for better Elite left-right menu glances, search in elite forums for specifics.

Thanks will do that! I got the X52 and Saitek pedals. Do you know what the menu navigation commands are called? Im kind of lost, and Im used to complicated flight sims lol Definitely love how the ships all have realistic thrusters and behave accordingly. Turning off flight assist (default 'z' key) will definitely be something Im going to be playing with extensively to check whether it's a gimmick or whether there are advantages to be gained there.

Skyrim is like GTA5, Far Cry 2-4, Dragon Age: Inquisition - an ocean, ankle-deep.

Sandbox RPG is the most boring type of game one can imagine, for it offers no actual freedom to player's actions. That would be hard. Instead, it lets you choose the order in which you kill things, and the locations where you kill them.

In other words, sandbox RPGs offer you a thousand different ways to get bored.

Its so easy making stuff up instead of you know actually playing the game. And no Skyrim is nothing like any of those games. (disclaimer, I havent played DA:I and that seems to be heavily influenced by Skyrim as far as the scenery is concerned)

Batman kills people instead of just beating them within an inch of their life and leaving them crippled for life. How else do you explain the militarized batmobile? This is Punisher style Batman.
The hostile tanks and helicopters don't have humans in them, but are remotely controlled.
Oh wow. But how do you explain batman beating people within an inch of their life and likely crippling them for life or psychologically damaging them for life? Can't get out of that one, that easy

He's not beating people. He's beating criminals. Or more aptly, he's..."correcting" them, sir.
Evilgrin

I never understood Batman's obsession with non-lethality. I guess back when Batman was invented people had a much more optimistic outlook on life. Today though, in 'Murica Goddammit! Cops shoot first and ask questions later, Batman needs to get on board or he'll face the wrath of the all-powerful NRA. I dont think even Bats can take on the NRA all by himself....

I have an S3 and it has gotten awfuly slow lately. I suspect that all those software app updates are only adding bloat and are designed to run on newer phones.

If you go to Steam now, Wolf is #2. Glad to see it, because the game is the best shooter I've played in a while. Super polished gunplay with great writing, acting and graphics. Just awesome

The engine feels clunky. The same awkward moving issues, particularly when trying to jump around scenery, have existed since Oblivion if not earlier. Separate indoor and outdoor areas is quite dated and unmodded it has poor detail at distance. It's far from a write-off, but I'd like to see a lot more progress for The Elder Scrolls 6 - but presumably it will be next-gen so non-visual stuff won't be a priority.
Movement is very floaty, and melee combat is pretty clunky. The pretty poor animations don't help much, either.

But it's a testament to the game's design that it can sell so many copies and still have some pretty glaring faults.

I do hope they hire some decent animators next time around, though.

Yeah the engine is based on the Gamebyro crap that is with Bethesda since Morrowind. Still, brilliant game. Wish I could bring myself to reinstall the game and play through the expansions at least, but I would probably spend more time tweaking mods and enahncements than playing

I was not really a fan of the previous Witcher games. However this third installment looks like it will simply be too good to pass up. Its cinematic (but in a good way) open world and oozes with atmosphere. Cant wait.

Dude, the movie isn't even out yet. Movies with bad trailers rarely end up being good movies. But good trailers often portend good movies (although not always of course).

This movie will be shit. Not even Arnold's one liners will be able to pull it out of the gutter. I dont see how it can turn out as anything decent after all that piss in the soup.

Well if it ends up looking fantastic and really needing that hardware then fine. But Im betting its just going to be another lazy console port.


"lazy console port"... it's dictionary definition means it's virtually identical to the console version. i'd go so far as to say that a 670 and 8GB minimum indicates if nothing else, that this version has more going on under the hood. ever wonder why all the games in the last 8 years looked shitty at 1080p? cause their textures were designed around a 720p console resolution. That's a "lazy console port". you don't just "require" 10x the hardware to do the exact same thing.



Then how do you explain Halo, Halo2, GTAIV, Bioschock, AvP3, etc. etc. basically every single game to ever come out in a multiplatform flavour?

Games that ran perfectly well on 512 MB of console Ram and yet chugged barely along at 4GB on the PC at the same settings?

You sure put in a lot of hope that because of the hugely high specs they will be producing new textures, and extra fancy graphics, but somehow I dont think these guys are doing what Rockstar is doing with GTAV. That shit costs time and money, something most developers are loath to part with these days.

Good Lord. So all of older folks here, just do yourselves a solid favor, when your kids are old enough to watch T1 and T2, just show em that first instead of the "redo/remake" fad going through Hollywood. And they are horror movies to boot, so they'll get scared shitless about robots !

Hollywood is too arsed to come up with new things these days. At least its some sort of weird Alternate Reality different than the T1/T2 fiction universe. And I see the Mother of Dragons has somehow found a parallel universe machine to travel to the Terminator universe. From the trailer it seems like whoever wrote this story wanted a Terminator movie with a "happy lollipop" ending instead of the inevitability/bleakness of Judgement Day happening regardless.

I'm trying to decide if I want to just wait until it is inevitably on Netflix to watch, pirate it, or just say 'fack it' and go to the theater to see it.

Hollywood makes plenty of new things. And some of the best old things are remakes, anyway. I'm looking at you, The Thing.

This is more "everything was better when I was a youth!" posting.

Beamer you love to play the devils advocate on all sorts of shit, but this is low, even for you. Hollywood's worst Michael Dudikoff 'B' film of the 80s is better than this piece of shit. And you know it.
