In this case? Yes.. no reason to save on polygons in a game like this.

Game still looks like GameBryo.. at this point probably heavily modified. Hopefully it's going to be a 64bit engine though....

News Comments > Final Fantasy Type-0 HD for PC Revealed

Hah, yeah I do remember.. and believe it or not. Your posts and our talks back before xmas in 2014 made me get the game after all. And I am glad I jumped over my shadow on that one.

And yeah, FF13-2 oozed atmosphere and pure love for the game by the developers.

few Screenshots to remind ourselves what western developers can never achieve.

This game is raw pure WEIRD japanese fantasy, and it never once forgets it. And I loved it for it.

FF13-2 was actually one of the first Final Fantasy games in nearly a decade that I adored to hell and back too, I completed it (nearly) 100% so all the time mysteries and the side-stories etc. and that's saying something. Especially because I absolutely hated FF13 and I could write a few page long rants as to why. I absolutely LOVED exploring this weird world. And the start of the game is imo one of the better ones in Final Fantasy.

Guess part of the reason is that in FF13-2, you play Serah and Noel nearly entirely in all fights. And as silly as it sounds, but I *really* liked them. Noel and Serah were a great combo, both had great abilities and the leveling wasn't as annoying as it was in FF13 and the game was visually extremely diverse, and in parts, typically japanese absurdly, impressive (rain drops running down bodies, wet clothing, freezing in snowy weather...). Not to mention that characters I absolutely hated in FF13, were no longer total dickheads in FF13-2.


Game was also a superbly nice game with the various PC related "fixes" ;p

I think Russia demeaned itself well enough by illegally annexing the Crimea. If I'd be a cynic I would think Russia does this intentionally to turn the Western World against it as nobody could have been stupid enough to think an annexation this close to European core powers would go unanswered or unpunished.

It doesn't change the fact that you are of course correct, everyone does it, and Russia is singled out here. But WHY that is is obvious. Nobody except Russia annexed an area in a sovereign country. So whatever the case, Russia is the evil in this painting of Cold War 2 - The Making Of

Nice! Two hours is fine for some games, not for others. I suspect if we disconnect from the Internet and play and those hours won't be counted.

You have to reconnect to the internet to do the refund and those hours are counted by the overlay.

Yeah, but you can easily go into the game directory and run it without Steam being online. I wonder how they'll handle that with people that use cracks to get around that restriction. I applaud Valve for finally stepping up to the plate and being a respected market leader they're seen as but I foresee a lot of hassle with this with such vague language for returns like 'for any reason'. I fear that will come back to bite them in the long run...and later, us as well...


=-Rigs-=

most games start the overlay no matter how you start them though, offline or not. Some games even flat-out refuse to start via direct exe when steam doesn't run.

Define media

If it's anything readable, on a screen, on tv, on radio

Then yes, we do. Unless you work in a cave with no power

But... WHY even mention that in the article? I would have applauded him had he not done this. Now I know what he thinks about Gamer Gate, in an article that lambasts lack of journalistic integrity on Polygon. There is a joke there, somewhere.

Point is, I just don't want to read about it anymore.

Neighbours can be very scary. They usually don't fall into a person's intimate circle, and yet other than close friends they are the people who know you best. I have a nosy neighbour two floors below me who claims that she can hear my girlfriend when she walks in heels on my tiled kitchen floor. Two. Floors. Down. I kid you not.


As someone who lived in such a situation, he does not kid you either. Walking with heels in-house should be banned, but you wouldn't believe how many women have NO CLUE how insanely loud they are with these things. One night here, a women walked briskly with heels (total silence outside contributed to this), and I kid you not, the entire neighborhood awoke over this, lights going, people looking outside.

What she was doing digging through my trash in the first place...fuck if I know. But hateful and nosy neighbours are scary as fuck and can make life in a closely knit neighbourhood hell on earth.

Amen to that, by the way. My motto is, if it doesn't directly affect me, then I don't give a flying fuck what my neighbors do. But I will mention that I had my fair share of neighborly absurdities. One of my neighbors once complained that my fence was too "rinky" and.. I ignored her, asked my landlord whether my fence was OK and a year later, she moved out. So whatever. Living here for 5 years now gives me more power against such bullshit.

Also as neighbor you really do notice a lot of things. My current neighbor is probably getting divorced, 2 children that are super friendly and nice and I see them every day. It nearly breaks my heart seeing how they got sadder and more serious over time. If I could do something, I... dunno if I would. It is really hard to not start poking your nose in business that you have no business with.

Generally speaking, the best thing are still new neighbors that park in front of the carport, and then wonder when I (and several other family members too!) get REALLY angry. There are 2 signs that specifically say, you park here, we tow your car. You wouldn't believe how many people just flat out ignore that. But so far nobody did it more than once, so whatever, again.

All this stuff makes you wish for Armageddon though.

Somehow I can only think that "inaccessible areas" also have a shortage of battery recharge stations.

Also I .. didn't want to mention it.. but where I live we have this fancy thing called stairwells. That machine seems to be defeated by that, just like the Daleks (and zombies) ;p

Daleks can hover.

Spoiler!

Lol Chances are you might be able to run that game on anything made the past 15 years, certainly looks like it (visually)

This might be actually the WORST game EVER to advertise for a feature that is probably way better to advertise in BF4, but then you'd see this introduces latency that doesn't exist with vsync off. ^^

I know you could raise a few billions for RnD and production of a lifelike sex bot that is ALSO a nanny bot.... with customizable body frame-work and after-market modding possibilities ^^

But I guess before that happens that other thing (AI) has to be developed first. Cheetah is extremely impressive, but it's literally a dumb cargo robot so.. use for anything apart from "follow" and "go-to-via-straight-line" mode is probably out of the question. But I guess it could save the lives of soldiers too..

That cheetah robot is impressive alright, but the run-time and weight of batteries is not. Any progress on that front?

Also it's imo super super shitty that the MIT makes such an amazing thing.. for military applications. Considering this is stuff needed for proper daycare robots for elderly too (less jumping, but tactile reactions, navigating stairs etc.).

Btw, still rocking 670gtx 4gb... I guess I can wait it out till the next gpu generation and hopefully get a card that's 3 to 5 times as fast as mine for the same price as I got this one.... when I get whatever VR solution is better in 2016.
