I hope new game in this series is also using a far better engine...

They've been releasing some engine videos, looks like a much better engine, but I hope I can still have those 500+ battles with it, sure looks more demanding than the first one...

Thanks That looks very neat indeed. I'd assume battle size will still be limited by single core CPU power mostly...

This is quite amazing considering I bought this game in it's original form (Mount and Blade, alpha!) so many many years ago...

And to me, the original is still the best. I hope new game in this series is also using a far better engine...

Websites block password managers? Firefox has always done a stellar job of remembering my passwords. I never have to type anything in anymore. Why in the fuck would you even need a password manager anyway?

Firefox is about as trustworthy storing your passwords as a little child is next a cookie char you left open...

I link you even to something you should probably read with a coffee and seated...

http://raidersec.blogspot.in/2013/06/how-browsers-store-your-passwords-and.html

Now this was 2 years ago, since then all major "good" browsers (aka, Chrome and Firefox) use "pseudo" encryption (pseudo because if you don't set a master password, your passwords are again, about as secure as storing them in plaintext in a txt file on the desktop)

Point being, don't trust Firefox Password Manager to be secure. Set master password at the very least.

And again using last pass as example, you can have 2 factor auth with that.. which is really nice

Since we know valve takes 30% we can extrapolate total size of the gaming market on steam.

End result: $2.4bn

That puts things into perspective...

For me it's mostly a matter of choice, I wish I could ditch Windows entirely, but a simple fact is, you can not if you are a gamer that actually wants to play everything...

And there is stuff like Steamlink that MAY convince me to switch for smaller use cases, but it would still leave me with that big fat requirement of actually owning a giant high-end WINDOWS gaming rig ;/

Point being, the more Linux games on Steam that are part of a Windows/Linux dual deal the better. But also fact is, the back catalog is on windows, and that means Windows is never going to go away.

Steam for Linux Now Has More than 1,300 Games. Thanks Linux Today.

Not enough for the elite BNsers....

Maybe because the big AAA titles are not part of that...

Instead of crappy euro TV unrestricted i'd much rather have unrestricted music. Half the content on youtube is flagged in Germany for GEMA licensing crap. Ways to get around it of course, but its much more silly.

I agree......

But as Germans, GEMA and GEZtapo are things that I fear will accompany and annoy us until the world ends...

If the EU manages to do this that would be huge. What we currently have in the EU is 28 different geo regions with different pay-TV offerings. Instead of 1 EU wide pay-tv offering, that just airs in different languages, but aside that 1:1... that would actually make me want to get digital payTV

Looks like it takes place in the same setting as Mars: War Logs. Hopefully it has better writing and less janky combat.

The Technomancer and Mars: War Logs... how do they come up with these silly names?

Mars: War Logs aside.. the Technomancers is something any sci-fi geek would know Alone from Babylon 5..

GoG users are losing their mind because you have to actually log into your GoG account in game to get the exclusive extras.

What the hell, really? Looks like I will be ignoring this game.

None of the GOG "extras" are exclusive though You can find all of them in-game as part of loot drops.. is.. at least, what the steam forums say ,)

Drop the camera down to first person view (and make sure you can look down and see your boobs), make the guns with less flashy effects, and bring the monsters on good and plenty and I think it would be better.

So hellgate "hell" except with even less production quality?

I have only seen and tested HEVC in a few media files so far, but the results were pretty damn impressive.. we are talking a good 50 to 70% more efficient compression than h.264 .. and if you maintain bitrate, you can achieve WAY higher quality than even with h.264

So 0.05% of profits for that.. seems.. well.. acceptable to me

Excerpt.

some dude asks

Game Design
by deltatype0

I am a "neutral" in the Gamergate debacle, preferring to observe more than directly interact, but in one case I watched the somewhat-infamous interview between Wu and Reddit KotakuInAction mod TheHat2

To which Wu replies

Brianna: First of all, if you are ďneutralĒ on the horrific abuse many women have suffered at the hands of Gamergate, you are a part of the problem. Being able to lean back in a chair and talk about Gamergate as if itís a fun controversy isnít a privilege I have, and itís not a privilege women in the game industry have. This is about being able to continue working in the field I love.

Being neutral about threats to murder, rape and intimidate women with opinions is a character defect.

Let that sink in, "intimidate women with opinions" aka, stating your opinion is to Wu a character defect.

explains everything yes?

Ps.: Also the comments on that Slashdot link are a riot To remind everyone, this is the "game developer" that never wrote a single piece of code, instead hired someone to make a game, then was friend with someone who gave it some award. And thinks she is irreplaceable and main figure in game development.

As much as we bash on Derek Smart... I'd take 50 Derek Smarts over her

How is the series holding up? I played Ep1 and enjoyed it, but haven't had any time since.

Well, it is.. interesting. That said it gets a lot darker in later episodes with consequences * (to some extend) to your choices revealing themselves. Aside that... it has a good story and pretty damn high production values.

Personally I only played to ep 2.. and then realized this is not a game you wanna be playing episodic... choices and your actions matter, and so it's best to wait this out until final episode releases.. and binge play it

In terms of time travel it makes pretty much no sense though. To the point where I think some of the things you can do are not time travel, but rather pure magic
