I always find it hilarious that people are even surprised. CD Projekt consolized Witcher 2 up the whazoo, locked aspect ratio, horrid GUI, shitty QTE's... despite there never even being a fucking real CONSOLE version of that in the pipeline back then. So it was even back then pretty clear what that studio thought of PC Gamers.

So to me, this is just CD Projekt doing what it always does. And btw, this is also why I am ZERO hyped for their games. I will play them and decide neutral each time, but no hype.

And imo if you advertise with screenshots on steam on release day that are clearly photoshopped, you deserve some shitstorm anyhow ;p

Not sure another game mode will help this game Especially since Gunmaster was on maps where it was always a giant clusterfuck

Because AMD doesn't have own FABs... Nothing they design they can actually built themselves. Everything is slaved to production cycles and upgrade cycles in chip FABS and I would think console specific chips are protected somehow too. Probably some kind of non competition agreement.

Ps.: How much A10 and A8 are a joke you can see when you get an Intel NUC with Haswell core. Below 20w power usage, but performance like a big desktop thanks to the Haswells scaling extremely well at low clockrates and power ratings... not to mention ABSOLUTELY superior as HTCP because Intel GPU actually worth a damn for transcoding nowadays. And A10? A complete joke in comparison.

They'll get what's coming no doubt. I've seen a lot stuff where Germans are pretty fed up there. I didn't know the media was allying with the citizens too though - because the past few years I heard some media pundits there (kind of like American ones) were actually whining, in articles or on-air, as to why lots of German citizens weren't buying all the anti-Russian hate/hysteria going around. They were getting flooded with Germans commenting about it and calling them out on it.

There is basically a huge rift between established press (Bild, Spiegel, Focus, Zeit) and grass-roots press (fefe in particular) but also to some extend Spiegel online (not the same as Spiegel, for some reason)

And yes, the media houses noticed that they can't direct public opinion anymore, and NOBODY bought that the sanctions are an EU idea here. I think the more this goes on, the less influence sticks to media houses that own entire news in an region. In Germany 5 rich families control 90% of the paper news. Which is why "Lügenpresse" is the newest hyped word in Germany. And to some extend it is even true, our press is a press of lies.

I was just poking to see why nobody had commented on this considering it is, as you say.. a common conspiracy theory And this new rule set fits nicely into it.

If you think this is bad, you should read the news in educated circles in Germany the past month.. journalism is essentially at war with our Government right now, openly calling them liars and betrayers of our nation (which they are, in a sense).

I don't even know what to think anymore. Our nation is in the ass of the US secret agencies so deep that a probe into illegal activities gets FLAT OUT DENIED nowadays. Yes, ILLEGAL activities, so what, says our gov. Fuck that shit.. and fuck my gov.

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.
