Wow...really? My 560gtx doesn't meet recommended requirements anymore? Damn, and I thought it was just my CPU that was outdated these days... That 50gb installation is harsh. I don't think any game is worth that much GB of an install. Then again, I should have a TB HDD by now also... lol
TIME FOR AN UPGRADE!

Well... I have 16TB.... but I am not normal ;p

Also only 512GB of SSD space and it's precious....

I was running Win7XP1/x64 on a 40gb Intel X-25 SSD for the longest time with about 1-2gb of free space... ...that was such a pain in the ass. I'd always have to use WinDirSat to find the biggest files that I didn't need and pull them off before installing updates or it would error-out. Plus it took me nearly forever to find out how to move the Windows temp directory OFF the C: drive (I know, I know). I'd go to decompress a 3 gig zip file and bomb out right at the end from lack of space every. single. #$^@. time...lol...Meanwhile, I had 6terabytes worth of hard drive space (2x 2tb WD drives, 1x 1tb Seagate, 1x 500gb Seagate and 1x 500gb Maxtor) backing up my tiny SSD for game/app installs and downloads/backups. Finally, in the next Windows install cycle, I threw it on one of the 500gb drives and used the SSD for game installs that I was playing currently or that needed fast access, worked out much better but Windows actions slowed considerably, especially booting. Went from 17 seconds to 47 seconds. (Which still isn't horrible, I'll admit, but it is noticeable if you're used to quick boots and restarts...my P2/400 back in the day used to take nearly 3 mins to cold boot Win98) I'm gonna need to upgrade soon, though. I have an HD7850 but it's kinda crippled with only 1gb of VRAM (it was cheap, so I grabbed it). Along with a first-gen Core i5/750 and 6gb of RAM, it's starting to show it's age in recent game releases... *sigh* ...

One of the editors at TweakTown posted his new system to FB yesterday, a brand new Core i7, an Asus X99Deluxe and 64gb of DDR4 RAM with 4 980GTX's in SLI and I was almost in tears, in was so beautiful....except for the nVidia cards...throw two R9-295X2's in there and I'd be bawling like a baby...

EDIT: Here's the post with a picture of the beast...


=-Rigs-=

With 2 R9 295X2's you could weld steel plates and power a jet-fighters turbine. (Also cross-fire doesn't work so well on those I hear ,p)

Anyway I grew up with a 20MB hdd, I know what both ends of the feeling "oooh so much space" and "20MB? this game says it needs 70mb!" feel like I got sick of running out of space though. In my actual gaming rig I only have a 3TB hdd and the 512GB SSD, all the other stuff is external, some is back-up some is NAS, some is storage and some is USB drives too.

For me upgrade is only coming when I know for sure what VR needs. Currently I am building my SIM equipment rather than my gaming rig Have an x52 now and spend my time learning how to fly an A10C ... if I only could figure out how to actually set up the laser marker for bombs on a moving target...

If you think you have it rough imagine me, aside from my 680GTX which I love (but it has only 2GB) I still run an ancient system with a Phenom 2 X6 ;(

4GBs of VRAM, another poorly optimized PC game?

Just a shitty engine (ID Tech 5)

Worth noting I hated that engine in literally every game that used it so far. Non dynamic world lighting, baked static geometry ugly as fuck textures..... no thanks

Eh, no its supposed to Barbarian Invasion 2, but this time around its called "Atilla"

Remember BI took place during the same time period, and also featured "Huns."

But this is it folks. RTW2 has been abandoned and is now supposed to be the ugly duckling of the series like Empire was, when it could have been a game that was like RTW1 and more.

They are pulling another "Napoleon" by releasing something "close era" but fixing the original game, and releasing it as a standalone.

Mhh you are right.. BI2 ... this makes it an even worse "big announcement" though.. considering what else could have been on the table...

I liked the part where some dev said they have survivors guilt, as if an tiny but vocal Internet hate mob is in any way or shape like war...

Aside that, meh... GamerGate is a culture war, and devs going against Gamer culture will find themselves out of a paycheck very quickly. Games are selling like shit with the content they have. And nobody needs change and nothing is gonna change unless it makes more money.

AHEM.
*readies himself*

I have seen this trailer now, and I will say this. I enjoyed what I saw for multiplayer. I admit, this game has me interested thus far.

Do with me what you will, but be gentle.
You may begin.


If the game has dedicated servers all I care about is the price, I am already set buying this instead of Hardline.. Dice shot themselves in the foot by not doing 2143

That Euclideon demo is very cool but ignored the obvious elephant in the room.... because this does NOTHING for proper fantasy or sci-fi games. You can not solid scan things that do not exist. And hence you are always limited by what exists in the real world in your games.

So not sure how this improves game development ;/

Is Gearbox even trying with this? Seems like a cheap cash grab if nothing else.... I mean.. literally the same menues, the same UI, the same art-style and the same graphics and the same gameplay.. and they want 60 for this.. hah Maybe when hell freezes over....

Yeah, I'm sure it won't be another unfinished game. BF4 has been out for nearly a year and it's still full of bugs. Same goes for BF3 and bad company 2. I've sunk many hours into all of them and they're all buggy.

And the CTE patch is still nowhere to be seen either.....

That Totem sounds interesting on paper.. but 90 fov and their skimpy details on the latency of the positional tracking and head-tracking make me doubt.

Also for the record, why the hell do we need head-phones for VR? I have a high-end 5.1 system. I have proper surround sound already. The boxes are placed on head-height and thus it's a perfect sound-scape. Why would I want to have headphones then? I hope they are optional (even on the OR)



I wonder if HDMI is gonna be required? Because I have certainly no free HDMI slots anywhere.

I find knowing the result of a race like Formula 1 severely detracts from the enjoyment of watching it later. So that is a very very narrow view on spoilers in TV series at best.

That Strategy Informer review is a joke, no own screenshots with GUI elements, it's just a wall of text accompanied by beauty shots, not actual gameplay showing shots. Waste of time

Same for the gaming Nexus review, no own screenshots with GUI elements, and the video is hosted by Firefly. Sponsored reviews or what is it?

I mean I get it.. I should wait until there are let's plays... but wow.. the review quality is a joke. If you make a point about game content make a GOD DAMN SCREENSHOT OF THAT SITUATION. Show the GUI, show how systems function, show how economy functions. GAH. GRML

News Comments > Tim Schaefer Addresses Spacebase DF-9 Questions

Looks and smells like a Steam early access scam. I'm thinking Tim is going to have to go the traditional funding route next time around.

Kickstarter supporters burned on Broken Age
Early access supporters burned on Spacebase DF-9

Nothing wrong with crowdfunding, developers need to have enough integrity to deliver.

To be fair, in this case they just committed a PR faux-pas and depending on what 1.0 actually contains and how much can be modded this might still be worth the money and time people put in. But in the case of Broken Age they are dawdling around for god knows what reason and are wasting huge sums of money for a point and click game that you could have produced for a tenth of the budget (with less polish and fancy art, but the same gameplay and effect).

For me Tim Schafer was always the dude that couldn't meet deadlines. Because when a CEO like Kotick slams Schafer publicly you know he's burned a LOT of bridges in the industry. And he likely needed to crowd-fun because investors were sick of this empty promises and missed milestones.

I didn't support Broken Age nor DF-9 because I already saw it coming. But I can understand that people are unhappy about both things. But what they spend their money on is their decision, and nobody forced them to buy DF9 before it was "done" or support Broken Age. (Though granted, the split in 2 parts was hilarious and likely burned a dozen times more bridges than DF9 ,p)
