When I read "in my spare time" I had to look him up and catch up because I was kind of under the impression he's had *nothing but* free time since Daikatana... though I do vaguely remember reading he was going to switch to making mobile games or something.

VR wont die... Ive got one word for you - PORN

I had almost forgotten about the VR pr0n factor... I had been predicting a significant up-shoot in guys getting caught at the computer with their pants around their ankles, with their ability to detect someone getting home and entering the room being diminished with the headset on, -but at this price-point it won't be quite so dramatic, with far fewer teens and college kids able to get one...

DK2 (which is most of the rez of CV) is terrible for flight sims of 'modern' aircraft - because the hud is unreadable. None of the numbers are legible (unless you move your face significantly forward to get closer to them). Simply not enough dots across that wide of an FOV to resolve one or two pixel wide symbology. This is compounded by the image shifting/scaling that happens to realign chromatic aberration (work around needed to compensate for the simple single stage lens).

I posted a link to this before, take a look. The blurriness is not youtube compression - it's like that normally.


Well ain't that a kick in the head... =\

I've been jonesing for this to make my return to flight sims (Falcon 4.0 and MechWarrior 2 for the S3 Virge were the first Windows PC games I played way back as a kid) as I'm spending a fortune crashing my RC aircraft over and over, but reading about the 90 FPS it requires has me worried...

I'm still rocking a I-7 2600K @ 3.4GHZ (but smart-clocked or whatever to 4.4GHZ with the ASUS app) for years now, but with 8gb RAM and a GTX 970 I have yet to feel the need to upgrade my CPU... Is this going to be what requires it?

Will be pretty irritating if he starts changing BIG things in the books *simply because* they wouldn't be surprising to the show-watchers anymore. Like, ooooh... LS + RT = JS?
Though after all this time that theory has become pretty mainstream, so I've even wondered if he'd change it just because it wouldn't surprise *anyone* anymore, ha.

i think it makes sense. he's powerful but undisciplined, possibly untrained. snoke isn't a sith, and it seems apparent kylo ren hasn't been taught how to use or even maybe even make a lightsaber, because his looks like shit, and he hacks away amateurishly with it. star wars has never lacked for good choreography (in the last 15 years anyway), we have to assume they made it look that way on purpose, to convey a message.

I *hope* you're not giving them too much credit there... Star Wars has always been merchandising first, story second, -so I'm not entirely sure the primary villain's weapon was purposefully designed to be lame in appearance when they planned to sell a ton of Kylo Ren action figures and lightsabers (which I'm sure they have already).

I walked out of it feeling like I must have seen a different movie than everyone else before me, so much so that from where I sat I thought everyone else in the theater wouldn't have found me crazy to say, "Well, I guess it was better than The Phantom Menace..."

Not only does it repeat the beats of ANH, it repeats all the less-than-stellar aspects of it as well, such as awkward pacing and HEAVY reliance on coincidence (I know, I know, everything can be explained away with "the force") and then doubled-down on inexplicably perfect characters who can achieve amazing feats with zero applicable training/experience (oh, yeah, right, the force...). Rey out-does both Han Solo and then Luke Skywalker, within what felt like must have been a single day into her adventure.
Oh and then Finn goes from being traumatized by seeing one of his comrades get killed to being A-OK with (even gleefully cheering about) wasting all those same guys he spent his entire life growing up and training with in about an hour (then even less time to become life-long pals with Po and Rey). Hokay...
Kylo Ren... should not have been unmasked (literally and... emotionally?) that early. Now they have to do some SERIOUS work on his character to get anyone to fear/respect him as a real villain in the future. I would like to know how anyone who actually watched all the previous movies (for the first time) in chronological order felt about Darth Vader by his end vs those who knew him as Darth Vader first and Lil' Anni second...

And that’s only the beginning.

Why yes.. yes it is. What exactly have they been doing for 2 years?

Haha, stole my thoughts. They basically just outlined how they hope to turn DayZ into a game sometime this next year, ha. Seems like a year since I last checked in on it, to find that it was now completely unplayable with my previous working display settings.

Hmm, they had the Community Warfare like a year ago now I think, but it seemed everyone abandoned it pretty quickly and all you could find again were the regular TM DM matchmaking queues... Haven't played in about as long now.

Was super excited to hear about this revival, and fumbling for my wallet, until I saw the actual details of it, ha. None of the original cast, just a bunch of Youtubers in LA instead of Minneapolis... Whelp, I guess my wallet thanks them.

Console commands saved me about.... well, probably about evened me out in the end, ha. Hit the game-breaking bug with the "Confidence Man" quest, and my last safe save was at least an hour behind due to a lot of building and distributing weapons/equipment at several settlements in between. Then it took me about an hour to look up the bug and the possible fixes and try several before getting to one that worked well enough...

Review at GameTrailers..., "Fallout 4 is flawed in very serious ways..."


But the very next breath (not even separated by a period, just a comma) is: "...but playing it, is the ONLY THING we want to do."
Kinda an important qualifier...

So long as depth of field and motion blur can be disabled... I still don't understand why devs are so in love with creating the look of viewing a game through something inferior to our own eyes.
Gotta get the game running at 60fps and then make it look like you're viewing it through a camera lens recording at 24 fps...

Always amuses me how the cinematic trailers make these games look super smooth and tactical, when the actual gameplay is everyone sprinting, all the time always, with non-stop gunfire and explosions, rushing into the funnel point kill zones...

I should really check links before clicking so I don't give any hits to HuffPo, but I should have expected it was either from them or Kotaku...

--And there’s more of an expectation that women or different types of people have to adapt to it. They don’t really change anything about the culture and then wonder why there aren’t more diverse people there, then they shrug and say, “Well, they’re not interested.”--

So, more reference to how the culture of white American males has to change, from the same people who will continually defend the ways of the *truly* most brutally sexist/racist/bigoted cultures on the planet... Oh, and I think the nail salons really need to change up their "culture" to start attracting straight white males as employees, because I feel they should really be more representative of society at large, because though I've never walked into one before, obviously I'd totally start going if I saw some faces that looked like me.

--So, in a sense, the first character you see is female, sort of inverting these notions that male is default. And you can easily play the guy, but the female character is way cooler. And there’s something wonderful about that.--

Equality means... putting women first, and making them "way cooler" than males?

Blurgh. Didn't Carmack say he was interested in a (original) Quake reboot a few years ago? Because that's what I want. Those maps were so much more inspired and atmospheric than any of the same ol' same ol' Doom or (Quake "sequels") industrial maps, -even if they didn't really make any sense.

From the Total War art book they just released (that was also posted here, thus this post's title saying "another" Total War: WARHAMMER clue.

I agree that the two properties don't line up perfectly and whatever is the result of this probably won't be really a Total War game, but there's probably because no one else who wants to do the RTS or cannot convince anyone that they could do it successfully. They may not have a workable and realistic vision or a team that could pull it off. CA may be the only one capable and willing to do this at the moment. And combining the Total War and 40K makes some sort of sense by getting people excited about the possibilities. It could be good, so let's just wait and see.

Even most of the people who want it to be WH40K have acknowledged that it's almost certainly going to be WH Fantasy. They acquired the WH Fantasy license, it easily fits how Total War games work, they're going to use it. And if it was WH40K, they almost certainly would have ended that video with a soundbyte much more WH40K sounding, like "FOR THE EMPEROR!!!!", "WAAAAAAAGHHH!!!", or if they wanted to be more subtle, something like the sound of heavy actuators moving.
Think you missed the boat on the direction this one is going.
Could be trolling us hardcore, though, SEGA doesn't happen to have any LOTR licenses, do they, could that have been Smaug at the end? Haha
