And as long as there is no way to check whether an app is malicious or not that will remain a clear ZERO for me as well, unless you consider the stock apps (Amazon/Gmail/GPS tracker and the "ruining-a-thief's-day" app ,p)) part of that...

I have cyanogen mod anyway so with AdAware I am even free from advertising to boot... Kinda happy with my tablet the way it is.. android 4.4 is snappy... and it still pisses me off samsung doesn't fucking UPDATE THEIR TABLETS properly. Gah. You need to root and install new boot loader just to update to latest android (Which works JUST FINE on older tables) via CyanogenMod...

My first impression is gonna decide everything (for me) with this tech.

One shot? I'll treat it like anything else, yes it has to be good, if it isn't but then something else is or it is improved, so be it. Good enough for me.

Well, it really depends on whether it's 100% immersive or not.. of course I am not going to discount the entire tech, but besides OR there isn't really a lot of comparable hardware coming. So if this fails it's not gonna be something I would be very happy about when I would buy the CV1.. maybe I should wait for the revision of that? Sigh... can't decide.

I hope I can test it somewhere close-by

I am ready, bring it to market!

I have one. It's not ready. While the head tracking is spot on, the screendoor effect and chromatic aberration is still very noticeable. They need a new approach to screens for VR. They either need to look at concave/bendable screens or larger pixels to eliminate the black space.

Also, HL2 made me very sick ... but I think that's just a setting thing.

Are you talking about the DK2? Is the consumer version going to have the same issues though?

I am really hyped for this, but I won't buy it until it's perfect. My first impression is gonna decide everything (for me) with this tech.

Would rather go trough life with glasses, or with no VR ? I know what I would choose... (already short-sighted, thanks to bad genetics..)

I get what Creston is saying. The majority of games are seemingly made for horny 15 year old boys or summer popcorn flick movie-goers and no one else.

Which sadly is the same for Hollywood as well..... but things will change, the more adults grew up with games the less games will be made for kiddies or tweens.

*publisher*: "Let's keep marketing all our games at boys aged 12-17!!"

Idiots.

Marketing hasn't really done that since the 90's. Modern marketing focuses on the 18-35 demographic.

Yeah marketing wise this got better but 90% of the games made are not at all for adults. Just look at steam how many games there are for adults only. And I am not talking about sex-games, but actual mature content....

RPG or not, those fuckers need to learn to manage projects properly and post more accurate release windows. It is ridiculous that a developer with their kind of experience can be that far off the original schedule.
Or they did this intentional to get more monies from KS by making it sound for people that what they are pledging for is not too far off.
Either way it is highly unprofessional and does not serve to build confidence or trust in these fuckers' abilities. Quite the contrary.
I, for one, won't be pledging for their next project. They can go and fuck themselves, especially Sawyer with his pretentious holier than thou 'tude can stuff it big time if he's not able or willing to treat pledgers with respect.

Lots of people like Obsidian, but I've seen a lot of their mistakes to. Now we can see it wasn't all the Publisher when it comes to them, they can't budget time and money well, even yet.

As long as the writing is better than D:OS I don't care how long they take...

Graphics & gaming...and for ATi & AMD...that started about 15 years ago ~1999, roughly. Two companies, 15 years each = 30 years. I would think that is the only way they could come up with this number. AMD had a really nice gaming cpu in 1999, the original Athlon. But ATi, well, ATI really didn't enter the 3d gaming arena in a strong way until R300 in 2002. However, long before 3d gaming came to be, 2d games were very popular, and ATi made some decent 2d accelerators pre-R300 (they also had several attempts at 3d, but they were all pretty poor efforts so I won't count those...;))

Man, this makes me realize just how recent 3d gaming really is...!



And how insane the tech development was as well. Newer GPU's are absolute marvels of engineering.

GPU's are the only thing that still impresses me when I hold them in my hand... they seem like giant electronic cities.

Linked from that article is this pretty funny roundup of totally ludicrous crowd funding examples.

The "new theory of gravity" guy actually got people to give him $443 worth of pledges. We should explain to these people the benefit of, really, just burning your money. At least that way you get heat. (which according to gravity guy leads to... anti-gravity?)

That Orbit thing would sound like a miniature Boeing 777 on take-off, the whole time, for the whole 7 minutes it would be able to run with current battery tech (and of course, it would not even achieve enough LIFT to fly... while making that screeching noise)

This link gave me a few good chuckles

7 ways to improve Wifi for home - instead of Repeater use a Powerline, in most cases and for a lot less you'll get better performance this way.

True, I have 2 to connect my tv where it would have been a hassle to wire network proper.. and this worked very nicely. It isn't the fastest (compared to a gbit wired network) but it works very easily..

And it's a lot faster and stable than wlan. Only downside is that if you switch a device off, it can take up to 30 seconds for the power adapters to all sync up properly when you turn the device on again. Especially if you have more than 2....

This is also dependent on house wiring quality...

Also technically ATI was not part of AMD for 30 years either..... so the numbers don't even add up if you look at them ignoring that AMD as a company is 45

Since they celebrate 30 years of graphics and gaming. And AMD does not have 30 years of graphics history.....

Ati was founded 1985

So 30 years is impossible, we have 2014 not 2015...

basically. AMD can't count worth a damn !

AMD 45
ATI 29

Credit where credit is due: Origin Game Time and Steam Free Weekends are a great way to demo non-F2P games.

Titanfall is 50gb... they'd have to pay me to waste that much bandwidth just for 48hrs of demo. Not to mention it takes longer than 24 hours to download that amount of shit on my slow line... ;/

I don't think you have to download 50GB. I believe the download itself is like 28GB or so. The install size is 50GB because of their retarded "uncompressing the audio on the fly would eat like soooo much CPU time, duuuuuude!" but you are still downloading the files in a compressed format.

No, you are wrong in this case or Origin displays wrong numbers I wouldn't have brought it up if I hadn't checked it.

You click Download it says, Titanfall needs 52GB space
Then Download window appears, saying this

Titanfall TM
0% [8.24mb / 52.52GB]

(funnily, it doesn't even list an ETA, but it lists my download speed correctly, 790kb/s)

Unless Origin displays wrong numbers in it's actual download manager I am gonna go with my feeling here and say you really do have to download 53000 MB of stuff for 48hrs of demo.

And yeah, I am on unlimited, but this deadlocks my internet usage for 2 days at the very least.

Ps.: I own Titanfall, I just have uninstalled

“What I learned from doing the first campaign is that while some people cared about multiplayer, the vast majority of people who were excited about the game were excited about the single-player campaign and mod support,”

TLDR nothing more to add

Just for you bluesnewsers constantly trying to piddle coop as the next coming, coop is nice to have, but many games can be UTTERLY ruined by MP

I'm all for a good SP campaign, but coop makes nearly any SP game better : )

Examples? Off hand I can give you few games with utterly ruined SP by COOP. Dead Space 3 and any Resident Evil game with COOP ever for example...

If a dev wants to make COOP they should make a game targeted at COOP. If a dev wants my money on KS and he lists COOP or MP he won't get a single cent from me. That's how I roll....
