Do they really not allow us to disable auto-updates? Is this true for all games? What about my modded Skyrim? I haven't been on PC much over the past 6 months so please excuse my ignorance on this.

All games, you have 3 options under Updates

"Auto Updating"
"Only Auto Update when I start the game"
"High Priority Auto Updating"

(paraphrased ;p)

My fast twitch shooting days are behind me, I don't think I have it in me to play another hyper fast paced shooter like Quake/Tribes/Unreal Tournament.

I think even Hardline is pushing it for how fast you kill/die in the game. "fastest Battlefield yet"

I think if they rebalanced normal mode to be more in line with BF4's tempo then it might have been more successful but instead they tried to push the fast time to kill to distance themselves from all the moaners calling it a BF4 mod. It didn't work.

This is particularly hilarious as Dice is now trying to get the 2 bullet headshot kill back in BF4.. heh

So the author only plays decade old games and a few INDY titles? (Next to Witcher 3..)

That's pretty much what I got out of it.

His complaints about Steam are....pretty weak, honestly. "I have to be online to set offline mode!" and "It updates my games without asking me!" (which you can turn off, but he apparently doesn't care to look into things like that). I'm assuming this is a guy with a laptop who travels a lot, and wants to be able to play games when he's on the road. That's fair, but even then, he could hotspot to his phone to set Steam to offline mode.
And, as already stated, the only recent game he'll have to play is Witcher 3. Considering his apparent lack of internet connectivity, A huge solo RPG is likely right up his alley, but once he DOES finish it...then what? It honestly feel more like this was cooked up by GOG themselves, considering how excited he is over a barely-functional games portal.

Addendum: You can't turn auto updates off anymore, only pause them, which prevents your game from starting if one is queued.

News Comments > Steam Top 10

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.

Must. Finish. Pillars. First.

LOL, This!!!

You still have 4 days.... get to it!
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
