I don't know, I'm kind of looking forward to a SW:Battlefront where half the people are running around with lightsabers trying to melee each other, then I come along in an AT-AT or something and just start stomping on people and blowing their sit up completely.

Also the maps look pretty good in this video, don't know if those brief glimpses were of a hover tank and a mech of some sort, not sure how that's going to play out, balance wise, in BF4.

If the BULLDOG and AWS are any indication balance will be completely fucked by the time they finish with BF4.. it was the last Battlefield I bought anyway. As much as I enjoy a good match on Silk Road the entire rest of the series bores me to tears nowadays. Heck, I think I am going to buy COD this year. For the first time since.. holy crap.. I think Cod 2

I just want a sharp, proper shooter. And BF4 has just too much bullshit kills going on. Their high latency bubble didn't fix shit. I still see tank shells EXPLODING and not getting a hit-marker (on helicopters especially) I still see people that somehow take less damage from hits than others.

Yeah, rawstory used to be a good collection of news, politics, and science you didn't see very many other places. But the past few years it has become very clickbaity.

And yeah, that was my thought: if what happens inside a supermassive blackhole hasn't caused space-time to collapse, probably nothing we could do would.

At least not without building dyson spheres and focusing all that energy on a single point in the universe (which may or may not actually recreate the creation event of the universe, I doubt a single or a dozen stars produce enough energy to do something like that). Which is so far out of reach for humanity you might as well be talking about elves and orcs and magical fireballs. Heck, Shadowrun becoming reality is more likely than space-time collapsing

I want the American civil war. After the Fall of the Samurai I thought it could have been a possibility, now I'm not so sure.

Empire Total War already has that as mod... and 3.6 of that is supposed to be out this month.
TWCenter

Ps.: Far more likely is a off-shoot into Chinese history or Medieval 3. Total War Empire was the least popular Total war of them all, so civil war and that entire era are very unlikely. But who knows ,) Shogun 2 was predictable and so was Rome 2. I think they are going for a entirely new era and setting anyway. Otherwise they'd not say there would be surprises ;p Or maybe total war "future". But that'd really be a surprise.

Or Warhammer 40k - Total War Now THAT I would instantly pre-order

Hawkings own words by the way
A particle accelerator that reaches 100bn GeV would be larger than Earth

And if he honestly said what rawstory.com quoted anywhere, then he should never again be a spokesperson for science. !

Why? Because 1: It's not called the god particle and secondly, 100bn GV is less than what a black hole produces per millisecond. And even if it were true, in the last 6 bn years or so you'd think someone would have tried to build such a collider already and we are still here... so yay? Bullshit story is bullshit.

My wife wishes to hell I would too. Half a closet's worth of space wasted...

More like half of my entire cupboard space I had to choose between my favorite game boxes or gaming mags. A female was involved, but she didn't pressure me, it was a hard cold ruthless decision of the "where the heck am I going to put this when I move?" kind.... I am very practical when it comes down to it. Gaming mags offer nothing the Internet doesn't. But my beautiful Baldurs Gate 2 box looks very pretty ;p

Yeah, I hate that term. It just sounds so melodramatic.

Cliffs games leave a lot to be desired but they sure do look pretty. I wouldn't really call them games, more toys then anything. I'd love it if beat hazard and space battles had a baby, I'd love to play the beat hazard ship againts a fleat of space battles ships while the music is playing.

The problem with cliffs games is he either needs to take Space battles in the 4x like direction of simulation, or go the smuppy beat hazard route of an action game. This toy simulation with microscopic RTS elements that plays out fixed as you watch the game play itself is petty bland.

His game caters to super casuals.

GSB2 mixed with a 4x would be really neat... it's absurd he never actually does anything with his ideas. He just polishes them up, but he never connects the dots for a truly great game.

4) Hey, I thought we were disagreeing here?

Nah, I mostly agree. I just wanted to clarify for the yung'uns. Back in our day, we pined for our copy of CGW and checked our mailboxes daily for a week until it came. And we read it cover to cover. Twice. That's the way it was, and we liked it!

I remember going nuts over E3 articles. Tiny postage stamped screens and 15 word blurbs, yet I'd identify what game was the next big thing to me due to it. Hell, any preview - I was 100% right on getting obsessed with Half Life based on 3 screens and two sentences, but 100% wrong thinking that, after Half Life, Prax War would be the next big thing. In that famous upcoming shooters preview, those were the two I loved. And based on essentially zero information.

Now? E3 seems annoying, not interesting.

Oh yeah.. that is very true.. nowadays E3 just seems like more noise on a noisy day at best... and at worst you can't even tell apart anymore what is or isn't E3 news, even during E3 ;p

And like any good gamer I also had a huge stack of gaming mags .. but I had to throw them away ;/////

I think most people buy a lot of indie games but don't actually play them beyond a few minutes.

Well, of course We are not judging them for any awards though. My first action when I see a game I never heard about is always "Gamename" "Let's Play" on youtube anyway. ^^

#6 - 7 Ways to Die, I believe that is a typo, as it should be 7 Days to Die.

I'm surprised we don't see 7 Days to Die in the 'Top 10' more often. This is a developer that not only continues to fix minor bugs here and there, but continues to enhance the game; the game just continues to improve and impress with each alpha release, and there is much more additions/improvements on the their (The Fun Pimps) roadmap. These guys (The Fun Pimps) are top notch.

For those of you that have the game and haven't played it lately, it is worth checking out the newly implemented smooth terrain (no more blocky terrain), random-gen-never-ending-maps, improved crafting, etc.

I have gotten, and continue to get, a lot of fun/mileage out of this game and always look forward to their next alpha release with more new goodies and fun.

How does it compare to State of Decay? I bought that based on let's play vids and word of mouth but once I started playing I found it kind of boring.

7 days to die is like Minecraft mixed with survival horror on steroids... atmosphere is great, deep crafting system, build your own houses, traps and stuff, and giant hordes of zombies that you can configure however you like your zombies, runners, shamblers, and anything in between ,) If you like something like that it's imo a great game..

Vastly superior to the crap that is State of Decay... (Oh, and infinite generating world map) if they keep their dev speed up it seems like this is the one survival zombie apocalypse game to rule them all.

... kinda sad no AAA title is really tackling zombie survival in a SERIOUS mature way. And even sadder crappy POS console ports like Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition sell so well. Considering the game has literally ZERO gameplay when it comes down to it. Zombies are extremely passive, you can walk through giant hordes with ease... what a waste of development time and effort.

It's sad that they manage to do this even when the framerate is capped by vsync.

Vsync does not cap framerates, it is something entirely different from a frame limiter (which works BEFORE the frame-buffer while vsync works by limiting frames already passed to the frame-buffer (by preventing them from reaching it)) Meaning you need both, and fyi, frame limiter at 60fps would still lead to tearing ;p

4K gaming? Right. And how long did it take for 64 bit gaming to become a reality? I remember using XP 64 bit because I was stoked for the coming onslaught of 64 bit games! 15 years later....finally a trickle begins.

And more hilariously, the games where it matters most (Simulations) have been skimping on properly utilizing 64bit.. and thus we gained nothing from 64bit even though it's now supported.
