one day when GTA5 comes to PC, there will be a Total Conversion mod to turn Los Santos into Los Angeles. what is taking Rockstar so long?!

Hoping we get an announcement in the next day or two, with E3. If not, I'm going to be mighty disappointed.


Whereas it's money on the table not to make a PC version, I can imagine them not bothering. When you make a billion dollars on your game, the thought of converting it to the PC with it's vast array of hardware, OSs, and control schemes for maybe another $50M might appear not worth the effort.

"Convert GTAV to PC?"
"Nah, let's just get started on GTA6 & RDR2. For consoles only."


While I agree with that somewhat, I would hope both new consoles (also) being x86 based would help with sales, and perhaps spur them.

Was just reading about the Bill Watterson thing...how fucking cool is that?

I don't read PBS, and wonder if I would have picked it up (Watterson doing panels), if I did. Now that it's revealed, I can certainly see the resemblance.


Yeah, he was my favorite as a kid. I have the ridiculously heavy complete collection on my bookshelf. I've always wished he would return to comics, even if for a limited run. I guess this counts, but I would prefer it if he did his own stuff.


Seen both of these? I've got both, but haven't got a chance to sit down with them yet.

STRIPPED The Comics Documentary. Featured in this one, I believe.

Dear Mr. Watterson. Don't believe he's personally in this one, but it's about the legacy of Calvin and Hobbes.

Christ, if we are going to get news every-time this game is going to be patched, might as well rename the site StarCitizenNews.com.

It's business. This crowd has proven every Star Citizen story gets thousands of clicks and dozens of (if not 100+) comments... Or if you just want to look at it as being the hottest topic around, he just wants to give the people what they want.

Not to mention a lot of folks put money towards it, and are interested in it's progress.

If folks don't like it, skip it and keep scrolling...it's what normal people do on threads they don't care about.

That quiz was fun but weak. It's like they only knew most of 14 'classic' game titles.

Really though, does anyone actually remember Hogan's Alley from anywhere besides the back of the NES box?

Yeah, that was pretty easy.

Played HA in the arcade a bit, never bought the light gun for home...

You need the PC wireless receiver (link) for the pad to function wirelessly.

Not relevant to you, but note that the Play and Charge kit won't let it function as a wired pad on the PC the way it does on an actual 360.

But that doesn't work with the xbone controller, does it? I assumed not...

Hey guys! Guys! GUISE!!

Question for you all. Should I pick up one of these or put that $200 toward an Oculus Rift? I'm really torn and not sure which I should do.

Thanks!



Seriously, $200? I read somewhere that the parts cost for kinect is around $70, I think.

<can't tell if serious>

Sounds good nin
Most important thing to remember is not to get frustrated. It will take some time to master the controls. It is not an easy game, but that is what makes it so rewarding.
If you go into MP and for some reason you end up loosing everything and have no ship (it can happen) just hit "clear save" and you will get your starter ship and 1000 credit, and off you go again.

There are going to be account wipes that resets everyone to the starter position anyways so don't get too invested in your ship and equipment.

Have fun!

Based on what I've read from you and others, I think my first order of businesses is learning how apply the most power to engines to run like hell.

Looks like Luke is getting a beard for the trilogy. And Hamill trimmed down nicely...

Must be really weird to go back to the role you're most known for, decades later...


Damn, did they really need that Mickey Mouse promo shot...Ugh...

It's for some Disney park deal, so...just imagine it's Jar Jar, and Luke immediately cut off his head after the shot happened.

Maybe Mattrick can admit that he has no business being in the games industry, because he apparently doesn't know shit about it.

Though at least he provides easy jokes.

His "success" of late is rather puzzling.

Wow, didn't notice the price until you pointed it out. Rather ballsy. I'll be curious if it has the uptick the last one did for pc projects...

I have a wireless keyboard that I use as well. So for something like Freespace2, I'd would use a regular (maybe 8-12 button or so) joystick, but then reach over to the keyboard to adjust power to engines, shields, etc...

I'm sure it won't be as optimal an experience as a full stick/throttle setup, but I'm trying to avoid going down the road of upgrading half my computer in the process, if I can avoid it. Hell, your trackIR videos were veeeeery hard to ignore...
