In Germany specifically there is also the Index which bans sale entirely. But only within Germany. Owning something on the Index is perfectly legal

A good example on the dilemma is Agarest 2. It has a young elf girl that you can massage in a stupid minigame to raise her affection level (In the Console version) (Which is relevant for True "Good" Ending). In PC version of this game they removed that. If they hadn't, owning the game on Steam would actually be ILLEGAL in the EU. As in you could literally get sued for owning that game, by federal prosecutors or their equivalent.

Doesn't your first paragraph quoted above say it's perfectly legal to own such material? If only sale is banned, wouldn't it be the distributor that would get prosecuted?

You would think, but in fact the distributor would get a slap and you'd get a child porn charge. And I wish I was joking. ,/ There have been cases of this where the distributor said "We did not know what this is" and the buyer would go to jail for buying a manga in a store that he had the store "order" (worse than Jail, all hardware confiscated and never returned)

Also in case of Agarest 2 we'd be talking about potential child pornography (Even though there are no naked children in the uncensored japanese Agarest 2 console version) which is threat enough to force developers to censor themselves.

This entire German Index system stinks to high heavens. Because you can never be sure that something you buy is actually legal to own, despite it being legal to own things on the Index in general.

Normal sex stuff or porno is perfectly legal to buy and own (and doesn't usually get on the Index ;p), heck prostitution is legal and if you want you can run a sauna swinger club cafe. The law literally doesn't give a damn about it except that VERIFIED age checks are required.

We have a very weird situation in Germany where currently you can not be 100% sure what is legal, as our precious government changed the law regarding photography (which funnily also includes Manga) in such a way that it's not currently clear whether photos of your own children playing in a tiny swimming pool in the garden are not in fact illegal to possess. The entire thing is a giant mess....

Define "easily"

Link obviously NSFW
http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng

(From reading the rules I don't think that link is forbidden ,p)

But no, in stores here you can only buy normal content, any AO content aka, USK18 is only traded "under the counter" aka, you ask, and they sell it to you if they have it

I have no idea how they got away with that on the consoles by the way

"PC Games Hardware reports (in German) of stuttering problems running ATTILA: Total War at 1080p on a GTX 970."

Wow, this game is unplayable on a GTX 970!

Just like Rome 2 on max settings btw...

Also interesting, GTX 970 loses over HALF the FPS when you reach the 3.5GB limit and basically continue using the current graphic thread after that,meaning you benchmark, and then play.. say goodbye to 50% of your performance. Wow.. that is an enormous bug.


It means if at any time in play your GTX 970 breaches the 3.5 GB limit your performance will go down and never recover until you restart the game.

What the ACTUAL fuck?

There's no reason to do that these days though, since AMD can't seem to compete, and nVidia is constantly forcing them to drop their prices.

Psh, bite your tongue! There are ATI/AMD fanboys here...I know because I'm one of them. AMD might not be able to compete CPU-wise, but their videocards still give Team Green a run for their money, no doubt. I'm sure a lot of Radeon users would agree. My HD7850 easily stands up to today's games, even AC: Unity, with only some minor ticks down on the ol' graphics slider...

My GTX580 is two years older and it still outperforms...

Mine is not quite as old, but still outperforms

And uses 90W less in the process.. per hour.. per day.. per year..
AMD builds GPU's with heating function... nice service for winter I guess...

Sounds like LucidLogix Virtu MVP

indeed. that was my first thought.

but 2 cards working on THE SAME FRAME? that sounds like a bridge too far. I'd love to see it work, but from what i know ATI and Nvid use very different architectures to achieve the performance relative to each other. It would seem like a real fustercluck to get them to be working on the same frame. does the CPU only spit out the geometry and z-buffer from the bottom half of the scene to one card? and have to re-calculate for the top half? I'd think that there would be a lot of unoptimized shit going on.

still a nifty idea. shows progress towards true parallelization, which to me is the real goal here. However i wouldn't bank on cross-vendor cards working on the same FRAME, that seems like a long bet. the %900 i'm still onboard with though, if a game was %900 more demanding on the CPU side of things using a CPU-optimized API that is...

They may be talking about VR related frame rendering, where technically you could very well render the same "frame" but 2 different viewpoints with different GPU's (but why?????)... and fix the bandwidth problem in 1 fell swoop (2 cards = 2 HDMI cables to VR goggles)

But even if this comes, still easier to just buy 2 identical cards if you really wanted this.. no?

Yeah, searcazm. Obviously UE4 is not required to make a game like this. You could have done this exact game 10 years ago pretty easily.

Also, yeah, twin stick shooters don't appeal.

But how else would they have added so much gloooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww

Can we atop with the non-gamer nonsense? She isn't an outsider invading your turf. You're taking an out of context quote from a video you didn't watch or read a transcript of.
I think what people really mean when they accuse her of being a non-gamer is that she's just using the fact that video games are the current moral panic du-jour as a vehicle for fame and career advancement. And yes she does cherry pick, she puts together a violence against women supercut knowing it will hit all the right emotional buttons in some people. She takes instances of bad things happening to women and removes them from any surrounding context to make it appear as though it's a representation of that game as a whole. She even goes so far as to claim that the mutilated corpses in Bioshock 2 were purposely arranged in an erotic fashion, because corpses are just so hot you know.

It isn't cherry picking! She is showing a series of tropes, and tropes either exist or do not. Showing that they exist isn't cherry picking. She doesn't need to put the context in because she isn't judging or condemning individual games, just showing the prevalence of tropes.

I can't fathom how you do that without "cherry picking." Do you show a random clip from a game and say whether or not the trope is in that clip?

How do you propose doing this without "cherry picking?"

How about not doing it at all? What does that even contribute to anything? I can show you staged scenes for any trope I want, and yet that does not prove a thing. All it does is incite pointless hate in people that loved the stuff I parody that way.

And sorry, but she is not showing natural scenes, she is showing staged scenes. Thus she is making a parody of something and not showing tropes, but how she staged scenes to show tropes

Of course that is cherry picking, and why exactly are you not angry about it? Wouldn't you call it cherry picking if I cut the 1 scene out of a movie, out of context and out of order together in such a way that a completely non existent trope seems to appear?

But when the cult leader does it you are ok with it? Why?

And her videos are art criticism, nothing else. Her own subjective view point about art. So it's absurd to say she is not "criticizing" these games, of course she is. That is what a critic does. Only she slapped a feminism and tropes moniker on and runs with it...

I just want to say, if she had took this approach in a proper intellectual art critic kind of way dismantling game by game, properly, thoroughly. Then I would have subscribed to her videos. Because no youtube channel is doing that right now.. just fyi

All aside, all she does lately is produce infinite amount of hate. Her cult and she as prime leader are exactly as vile and crappy as the hardcore GG crowd.

1 coin, 2 sides I guess.. but to me both sides are the same.

14. Intel 10nm and then 7nm and AMD? Feb 23, 2015, 21:26 eRe4s3r
 
Amd is plodding along with 28nm (it's "newest mobile CPU anyway)

Intel is getting a massive domination going here, and as AMD cpu user that saddens me! My next cpu is most definitely going to be Intel, let's see whether I can survive on my old Phenom II x6 until that next next generation of cpu's comes ;p

All info that is known is that sometime 2016 AMD will figure out how to build a desktop CPU again. At 14nm... but by then Intel is going to be at 10nm....

Also interesting is that due to higher power requirements in GPU's, they haven't figured out how to go beyond 20nm (which explains why AMD is using 28nm fabs)... the process used for 14nm and 10nm apparently has massive problems with power leakage... So gpu's are going to be jumping straight to 7nm? Wouldn't this mean a massive jump in performance and power savings / heat reduction?

Ah, the next 5 years are going to be another great time for tech stuff

That read took or a turn for the interesting.. but.... the people that had these problems were really not very smart in how they handled this. That first women in particular, she was annoyed at a spambot, that's hilarious if that video she put on youtube hadn't been so sad. She came about as a hysteric with zero argumentation ability. (Hint, this is why you never confront people about an serious issue alone). Very sad all around but the Internet is what it is.

I mean for fucks sake, there are ENTIRE CHANNELS (on youtube) that crawl the web for stuff (genre name -> "Why would you put that on the Internet?" )

yet everyone here is saying it is pay to win... ???

Although we've beaten the pay-to-win discussion to death, I'm interested in how buying a $1200 ship isn't paying to win. That ship will give an advantage to some players over others. Let's hear how it doesn't.


The game needs to come through with it's one promise. Player run servers. If it does P2W will mean nothing on them.

I don't see how player run servers are even feasible at this point.

Maybe if you have a server cluster it's doable, as in you rent some MS Azure or AWS servers and spin them up, but I have trouble imagining one consumer-grade computer running a full universe simulation, unknown planetary-side simulations, AND run FPS simulations- simultaneously.

I can see a minimum of one server for each along with maybe a master server that coordinates everything, with additional server spinning up for every X number of players. Not to mention the bandwidth required for that kind of server hosting- it'd be kind of a nightmare.

An expensive nightmare too... I am still only along for the ride for the SP portion.. the other persistent nonsense doesn't interest me.

And like you I see feature creep and it makes me wonder how this is even going to work. Squadron 42 is an entirely different game it seems, using systems that were developed for persistent world but offline in SP. And how is persistence even going to work with user hosted servers? I mean i can see how you could simulate FPS and ship battles in 1 "sector" at the same time, no problem. But what if there are 50 such battles across 50 sectors?

I think the more this game takes shape, the more people will realize that what they backed might not actually be what the this game ends up with. Let's hope SP is not that ;/

Fact is if player run servers are not possible to do there will be a giant shit storm coming. And there already seems to be confusion whether "player run servers" applies to the PU stuff, or just the simulator stuff (ie single missions or dogfights).

And to be honest, I don't see how this game is not going to be a giant clusterfuck on release anyway with these huge modules. And persistent universe crap already ruined 1 perfectly good game previously pure SP game (Elite Dangerous)
