Done! The final fight was EXTREMELY unfair, had to cheat my way through it. Never had a problem on normal mode in the entire game. Anyway, ready for Witcher 3...

Completely agree on that by the way, the end fight was ABSURD. I was stuck there for many many retries (beyond 40!) And only won by reducing difficulty...

Sigh, but then I am also not a huge fan of PoEt the more time passes since me playing through it. Something about it just.. didn't grab me. It went through the motions of an CRPG alá BG2, but it never got it right.

Ok.. and to add to this.. WHY THE FUCKING HELL ARE THERE BLACK BARS

I swear, if this game has them and I can't disable them, I am charging back my purchase.

I'm excited about it, I just don't want to pay for generation 1. It always has glitches.

I'm also still really worried about how my eyes are going to take this. I wear glasses already. This is a thing I need to try on and use for myself before buying.


Yeah, I am pretty sure in a year or so there will be demo stations in stores. Or in smaller tech shops, I am sure they will have a unit to show customers if they ask. Waiting for that before really committing

It's stereo. That means rendering everything twice. Explain to me how that's a thing a budget card can do?

It renders everything twice, but at a half the resolution. A single eye only sees half of the screen. So it takes roughly the same amount of grunt as rendering it once at full res.

The performance cost is actually 80% ~ higher if you have 2 viewpoints. The reason is dead simple. You have a camera, it sees stuff. You have another camera, it sees stuff slightly different, all mesh points in different locations because projection is different for each viewpoint, all shaders need to be recalculated because a normal map for 1 viewpoint looks wrong in another. So the render cost of 2 viewpoints is actually immensely higher than just uprezzing 1 viewpoint.

Last I heard the main problem is literally that GPU's hit a bandwidth limit with 2 viewpoints that introduces latency. The FPS itself is not the problem, the problem is that GPU's are notorious for not giving a fuck for "hard" real-time. That is. 1:1 realtime with 0 latency or slow-downs. Something that is incredibly hard to actually do with a GPU.

And with VR, it seems that stable frame-rate with low latency is far more important than ANYTHING else.

But seriously.. why 2 USB 3.0 Ports? I hope this means the rift supports HUBS, because USB 3.0 ports are precious enough as is.

One for the headset, one for the positional tracking camera.

Sounds like that can run over USB HUB then. Leaves the problem of power supply and HDMI I hope this ships with very long cables... or its own HUB of some kind

That it's Windows only is not surprising considering linux GPU drivers suck, and Mac doesn't even have anything close to a 970 in it's line up.

But seriously.. why 2 USB 3.0 Ports? I hope this means the rift supports HUBS, because USB 3.0 ports are precious enough as is.

Also a single 970GTX is not gonna run anything at max details @ 95fps

Black blood potion just destroyed that bitch!


Doesn't make any sense that an ancient intelligent beast would not know about that though. I mean if you make a living by sucking the blood of things, surely you have some RnD going on what to not suck ;p

Only witchers are able to withstand the effects of that potion, so it's unlikely that a bruxa would know of such a thing, unless that bruxa had considerable experience with witchers, which is rather unlikely, as the video proves.

If you were a blood sucking demon vampire of doom, would you suck the blood of the only enemy on the planet that actively hunts you and is known to use potions and poisons, and has poisonous blood which is lore known even to normal folk? Don't get me wrong, dead Bruxa is good Bruxa.. just seemed odd it would fall for THAT trick. Do these monsters not talk to teach other?

No not really actually. They're very solitary and rather rare creatures.

Plus, ever since the first Witcher game the Witchers are kind of scattered to the wind and aren't around much any more. Even most of their alchemy was lost.

As was also pointed out, in "times past" witchers didn't go after Bruxa for contracts. So you've got an unconventional enemy who uses secret and presumed lost alchemy as an insurance policy in case he gets bit.

That's very interesting If true though, then Witchers would be royally fucked if higher ancient monsters would actually cooperate against them or flat out hunt them though. Never quite understood why at least the intelligent monsters don't do that in this universe, but I guess it would make for a very short book

Holy fuck, why the god damn hell does an ASI script hook have the authority to execute a fucking file dropper. Who coded this, a 10 year old? SKSE for Skysim HOOKS THE GAME FUNCTIONS

What the fuck does Asi Hook do that is so vastly different and requires exe file execution and registry editing?????

Grml

Ps.:

And yes, this is a direct problem with this entire ASI scripting bullshit GTA 4 and 5 used. ASI files are nothing but executables when it comes down to it. Not like LUA that runs within a self-contained script sandbox. Or like wrapper mods that intersect with game calls to inject new gamecalls. This ASI hook is a deep system hack that intersects file LOAD and file EXECUTE api calls with zero protection. Was only a matter of time until hackers wised up.

With this GTA5 modding is totally dead. As there is no way to see what is in ASI files. You could never be sure that a new mod isn't malicious.

D3/PoE/TQ/etc. are all trying to replicate the longevity and success of D2 without really considering why it was played for so long by so many.
I'd like to know how much PoE you've played. Because PoE has countless innovations and actually does take the genre forward. The big appeal of PoE isn't the loot grind but the intellectual pursuit of learning and building amazing characters. Some have said the best video games are those that give you puzzles to solve, ways to learn and adapt. PoE is one of the deepest, most intellectual games ever made. It takes D2's character builds and ramps it up 10-fold.

Anyway, I agree with D3 that it is shallow and grindy. D3's anytime-skill-respec makes character builds almost pointless. But PoE I've played for hundreds of hours despite not caring for the grind.

End PoE defense.

Ehem, D1, D2 and D3 were about LOOT, LOOT.. MORE LOOT and ever more LOOT ^^ Aside that, epic combat, feeling super powerful and a constant power curve fed by loot.

PoE has a lot of things, but it has literally nothing of what made D2 great and D3 in latest version acceptable.

No.. Godius is an example of what happens when you piddle a mobile game, notice that nobody gives a fuck about mobile games on KS, and change it quickly to a REAL PC VERSION to get funding. Only to then basically release a stripped down mobile game on PC, and have 2 people work on it, while everyone else jacks off at the mobile game version.

BW cap in Germany for a 100mbit cable connection is 1.8TB per month. But 60GB cap a day, and when you reach it they throttle "filesharing" to 100kb/s (yeah, you reading that right) and no, I didn't put that "" in out of boredom. You know what they throttle? Everything. EVERYTHING. Yes, contra their own contract text! So youtube, throttled, Steam? Throttled. Downloading GTA 5 and patch? Fuck you, you are throttled. (Happened my friend) and afterwards he couldn't even use youtube anymore.

Needless to say, I'd rather take 6mbit DSL with no cap than that offer ;p Especially because TONS of auto updaters are lately p2p

If I were to ever blog about political things, I'd only do it via VPN and under a false identity. And in my country bloggers are not "hacked apart".. but it just seems prudent to not intermingle political opinion and my personal identity.

I live in Baden-Wurrtenberg and I'm on Kabel-bw, My Usenet stats for the last 3 months are 7.3tb's... thats just my usenet usage, I'm on 150/5 plan and i've never ever been throttled... I'm curious who you get your internet from?

Only Kabel Deutschland here for 100mbit, part of Vodafone. 60GB daily limit (currently), throttling to 100kb/s if you go above it. I live in Brandenburg, a short way east of Berlin.

I have 1&1 DSL 6mbit, no throttling and no cap Where I live, that's literally the only 2 options. DSL, max 16mbit down 1mbit up or Kabel, max 100mbit down 6mbit up from Kabel Deutschland (with cap and throttling)

And yeah, if you get to 60gb a day, the Kabel Deutschland guys do throttle everything

They also throttle you flat-out if you have 10gb daily p2p traffic, and yes, throttling everything. Not just p2p.

Imo the worst provider in Germany, Kabel Deutschland that is.

This comment was edited on May 14, 2015, 12:10.

Ps.: My friend just chimed in and said that they throttle you when you reach 60gb ANY day of the month, and all days until the end of the month afterwards at 10gb per day. Meaning once you reach 60gb, you are throttled until end of day, but next day if you reach 10gb, you are throttled again. And again, and again...

Also, yes, they do count Steam, Youtube, Amazon Prime as "p2p traffic" so a single large game download could actually become literally physically impossible for you for a WHOLE MONTH.

My monthly traffic is around 300gb, so I'd hit this literally every month and every day of every month. So be very happy you have Unitymedia at your place and not Kabel Deutschland.

PPs.: Last month, due to GTA 5 i was at 300gb, normally it's 200gb. But then I also share with other people in my household, so it's not just me downloading 24/7 HD porn ;p
