Am I the only one who was hoping for turn-based combat instead of real-time?

Yes ,)

D:OS has TONS of combat / out of combat issues because of their weird obsession with turn based step by step combat. Combat RT with pause, based on DnD (So you still have rounds) is far superior.

Or so I think anyway

Oh look.. after Kickstarter spawned Torment 2 and Pillars of Eternity, Wizard of the coast noticed that it forgot the entire genre for nearly a decade..

And what do they come up with? ... Sword Coast? Seriously? The most boring area in the forgotten realms?

Mhhh.. we'll see I guess. This can't have been long in development considering when DnD 5 released.

And would it kill them to build some radically different space stations, or better still port entrances? Maybe a circle or a square or even a triangle?

*snip*

So is there a point to playing this yet? You know, actual *gameplay* that does something more than just raise a few imaginary numbers (creds and reputaiton) up a few notches?

It's odd, but the monster artwork in Evolve looks like it was lifted straight from Shiny's Giants: Citizen Kabuto

Compare Evolve to Giants: Citizen Kabuto - uncanny?

They look pretty different to me... maw is different, leg structure different, back is different... If you go by that argumentation all humans look uncanny alike too.

Merkel has mastered the art governing a nation without actually governing it. And for some absurd fucked up reason people love that here.

Because of the economy. People love leaders that their country flourishes under, regardless of the amount of impact that leader has.

I am not judging Merkel here as I do not know how much impact she's had on the economy. I recall articles saying quite a bit, but did not read them so I can't judge how accurate I feel they are.

But to your point, regardless of her actual impact, the economy has been improving since the crash 8 years ago, and people don't want to mess with that.

Even if that weren't the case, since the SPD introduced Hartz IV there is no actual choice to the CDU/CSU (ie. Merkel) anymore, even if Merkel is how she is, the alternative is the party that's literally called "Verräterpartei" in Germany (Party of Betrayers)

Hartz 4 is one of the most anti-social laws ever invented. It has literally created an entire underprivileged subclass within the nation, and it was introduced by Gerhard Schröder who promptly lost the next election (And killed the SPD for eternity) with these (and other) laws.

To give you an perspective, the actual choices on federal level elections are CDU, Grünen, Die Linke, SPD

And all we get to decide here lately (nearly a decade)is who gets to govern with the CDU. Not who gets to govern, because the majority wants status quo. And I hand it to Merkel, status quo is what you get when you vote her... at least she doesn't betray the voters like the SPD did.

So it's made from silver, and not diamond, yet it's called a Diamond cable. Even if their bullshit was true how can anyone justify the price when silver is $17 bux an ounce - which they probably don't even have that much in this cable.

The contacts or welds in the devices aren't silver... so wtf would this cable possibly do, even if it weren't total bullshit? Not to mention that HDD and SSD connectors are copper. The power plug is copper... anyway, whoever buys this deserves this cable so much

Jesus, when the hell is Germany going to get rid of her? Are the other choices that bad?

Short answer.. YES, (assuming there are even choices, I don't know of any..)

Long answer... Merkel killed of (politically, of course) any personal that might have had a chance within her party. And continues to massacre any candidates by giving them resorts they can't handle (look who runs the foreign relations and defense ministry and how well that goes ,p).

Merkel has mastered the art governing a nation without actually governing it. And for some absurd fucked up reason people love that here.

Hey, guys. We are Weappy, small development studio located in Minsk, Belarus. In the past we separately worked on different social games, but six month ago gathered together to make videogame of our dreams — This Is the Police. It's a strategy/adventure game about power and corruption. You'll play as beloved and honest police chief who is going to do some bad things. Player will dive into the world of corruption, bribes, kickbacks and other fun. You can read about our game right here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-is-the-police

And here is some pictures: http://imgur.com/gallery/6Tx7I/new

We'll be happy to answer any questions you got!

You broke your kickstarter link, this is how you do it right

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/43328422/this-is-the-police

Ps.: As much as I like a good story, gameplay video or at least the prototype footage how gameplay is envisioned, needs to be the video you show to first comers.. currently I have no idea what kind of game this is, and I am not going to be reading 5 pages of stuff to find out. ,P

Wish more people used GamersGate for purchasing thing so that Steam feels some pressure of competition from someone.

Huh, I've bought from Steam, GoG, Humble, D2D, Gamefly, and Origin. Strange, never bought from GG in all this time.

Me neither, and the reason is simple. They offer nothing that can't be gotten elsewhere, for cheaper. Including literally on Steam itself.

€10.00 for HoI 3 complete (game and DLC)
Was 9.49€ on Steam last sale

Sorry ,) But I keep track of prices, and Gamersgate is ALWAYS more expensive than Steam during sales. Lords of the fallen for €20.00 which was €19.99 on steams last sale.. € 17,99 on MMOGA etc.

And infinitely more expensive than just buying from a key site.. (ie 15.99€ for Lords of the Fallen normal edition) can't really be arsed to check more...

use https://www.steamprices.com (Does track steam prices, obviously, which is a good comparison tool if you have other places where you buy)

Considering all the blur in Dying Light ramming that in your face is likely tantamount to torture

I haven't played the game but I'm guessing from screenshots I've seen you're talking about the chromatic aberration, where they simulate colours being separated (like the Pink Floyd prism).

It seems to be the new stupid thing to do, or rather overdo, it's something you only see through lenses but hey, lets not let that stops us from smothering everything in it. I can't remember a game that does it without overdoing it, even Alien Isolation went overboard with it but was bearable.

It's like a crappy tiny budged director suddenly got free bloom or lens flare effect in the budget and went bloody crazy. Even some sensible established devs end up being idiots and going crazy with the "new thing", give an idiot access to it and you end up with things like Dying Light where everything must be smothered in it. Bloom, HDR, they've all been molested by idiots but chromatic aberration is by far the most annoying so far when a shaved monkey gets it mitts on it, not so much because it's impossible but because they use it like an elephant with a broom trying to paint a teacup.

Yeah, chromatic aberration which blurs outer edge details and splits edges in 3 colors (no proper made photo macro lense ever does that btw) which looks absolutely HORRIBLE and by the way, also breaks blur-AA (ie post AA) ;p Since blur AA blurs already the pixel edge, giving it that nice "frayed" look.

And then you have on top of that blur when you sprint (radial edge blur. Blur when you get hit. Massive blur when you are hit by water droplets (the sewers nearly made me stop playing entirely). Motion blur, depth of field blur (All things the human eye does not actually have, and yes, that includes motion blur and depth of field blur, because* human eye always sees sharp wherever it focuses, you focus on a flat surface that's a sharp surface, no matter how much you move or what is in between you and the surface, assuming you can see it). Either way, Dying Light is imo the perfect example of what happens when you give devs a toy they do not understand.

Alien Isolation by the way, at least implemented it very faintly, and let you toggle it off entirely. Most of the things in Dying Light you have to hack out, and there is no way to disable lense distortion + chromatic aberration yet, without enabling blur-AA (which kinda defeats the point...)

Gods I miss the times of proper MSAA with super sampling....

Straylight wrote on Feb 9, 2015, 09:37:
Is anyone else waiting to see the next few weeks of events unfold like all other Battlefield games?

1) Hardlines open beta will ask for participation touting feedback which will help tune server load and weapon damage...

2) On game day release, the servers will be overloaded, "we didn't foresee this many people wanting to play our game despite how many people pre-ordered it"

3) Reported bugs will have been ignored rather than fixed.

4) Overpowered weapons and exploits weren't even addressed, Game balance issues still exist.

5) A third of the people who bought Hardline wont even be able to play until the next patch...

You forgot sound bugs that mute entire server population and map glitches that were reported and will no be fixed until DLC 3

Still, a pass for me. I hated the beta.. now twice.

This is getting really weird. It's just zombies.

Why?

Maybe it's the rare (30 hours, seen 3, all part of missions so far) child zombies you kill by suffocating while reassuring it with "shhh shhh" noises.

If I were to hazard a guess.

Oh man... The first time... Great stuff : )

Threw 6 molotovs in that room until everything was nice and quiet, was worth it.
