Uh, so we are supposed to install an Adobe backdoor that's not security tested, not talking encrypted, and not verifying identity of servers on our systems to watch certain kinds of media now?

Or how about.. no? Geez, what could possibly go wrong! Apparently Firefox devs never heard of the Sony trojan

So, don't install it then... Firefox is just adding support for it (reluctantly), so you could install it if you wanted, and have it work... If users have no need to watch the crap crippled with the DRM in question, then they have no need to worry about it... Plus, it's a given that every other browser out there will be supporting this crap, so if Firefox doesn't and everything starts requiring such support to watch, then Firefox refusing to support it will be the death of it...

Yeah, but I remember a talk from Mozilla about how they stand up for a free and open internet. Adding support for something is akin to supporting it in every way. DOesn't seem to be possible to coexist with Mozilla's pseudo principles.

Gosh, so good Steam is doing away with the Greenlight system. I simply love how they're being overly concerned and letting only complete, quality games through.

Nono

Now now, sarcasm is not the solution!

Oh a sarcasm detector, that's a really useful invention.

Did you know there is a tutorial about how to handle sarcasm and interpret it?

http://www.wikihow.com/Respond-to-Sarcasm

;p

And as true Internet denizen... i obviously did not follow any step of that tutorial and blatantly ignore it wherever I read and post ;p

Ooh, nice. Patch 2.05 has been very good so far. They really need to bump up Rift fragments and Legendary drops in Adventure mode(non-Rift) though, in my horrible drop-luck biased opinion.

ps. Yes I am one of those people who plays Diablo 3.

Played for an hour... got 2 legendary rings and 5 recipes ~.~ and gold find at 1035% is pretty cool too ;p Funny that just today I figured I wanted to play a round Diablo 3 and just as I start I see a patch and.. 2.05 gotta hand it to them, at least they are keeping D3 kinda fresh.

Huh, kinda late for gold. Sounds like it's being shoved out the door regardless of the actual state it's really in. Caveat Emptor if you buy this before real player reviews.

I agree here. This game has disaster written all over it. I hsven't seen one iota of real gameplay for this thing. most devs with a game with the real goods can't wait to have people get their hands on it. This one is all guided demos and scripted demos.

Not buying this until let's plays surface either.. but I have it in my sights.. it looks interesting.. and it's not like there is much choice in this month.. when it comes to open world games ;p

what constant driver problems from AMD? Spoken like someone who's never owned a card of theirs - at least in the last decade. You're just wasting money if you're buying Intel/Nvidia.

I like my hardware PhysX.

And the 3 games that use it ;p

*ducks*

Besides, the real problem with PhysX is that only CPU based physics can sync in network games... meaning.. all of those fancy effects you see are just fluff anyway

Yep, still over priced. I can get a comparable Nvidia for under $200 and I don't have to put up with the constant driver problems from AMD.

Spreading FUD about AMD drivers is so 2000s, please get on with the times. And tell me which back of the van in some skidrow one can possibly take off with a Geforce 760 or 660ti for below $200.

Quick google search for 660..
2048MB Palit GeForce GTX 660 Aktiv PCIe 3.0 x16 (Retail)
137 /Converted for you, 187$

And that's with German taxes and all, so yeah ,p

Difference to TI is only 10% more fps...

760 costs about 190 to 230 so without the taxes we germans pay, in the realm of 200$ too... the nvidia cards are pretty well priced right now. At least the mid-range.

I don't mind the zombies so much, but the game play doesn't look like it has any purpose here, despite having a unique look.

But yeah, pretty easy to do something other than zombies. How about a chemical spill that turns all the local wildlife into giant multiheaded carnivores? Or a rift opened by a military experiment that opens our world to the denizens of another dimension, a la Stephen King's short story The Mist? I realize Doom and Half Life have done something similar already, but it's not as overplayed as Nazis and zzzzombies.

Speaking of The Mist.. the movie (The Mist 2007) was pretty dang good as well. I really don't get why game developers don't use all these ideas... instead it's always just "bla bla, nazi's and/or bla bla zombies"

LCD, as manufactured, is a strikingly inferior display technology. It is so obviously visually inferior to both the expert and casual viewer that one can only assume LCD users must stare at the sun first before using their display.

OLED is slightly more vivid, but the required chemistry still isn't ready.

Here's the display technology that should not have been shelved:SED

I'd never heard of SED or it's cousin FED. Pretty cool ideas. I guess it should have been obvious that you could shrink the electron emitter of a CRT down to the individual pixel display and get the benefits of both a flat screen and a CRT, but it never occurred to me. Very nice. Too bad they canned them. Here's a nice article discussing the technology and the challenges (the fact that they require a lot of lead being one of them)

This series of reads depressed the hell out of me...

Still using a CRT here for most of my gaming, which is not as sharp, but at least can hold it's colors and blacks properly. I find that absolutely vital, as I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to black values. It visually distracts me when an LCD shows grey where it should show darkness

OLED needs to come! And SED sounds extremely cool, but where is this? Why nobody makes stuff with it? ... Does it need a Kickstarter?

In the end I was extremely sad when I saw LCD's becoming "mainstream" the worst technology won... BLA

That's good and all, AMD, but aren't the retailers tagging on an inflated pricing scheme due to the demand from bitcoin miners and pocketing all that extra chunk of change?


Well, there should be 0 demand from bitcoin miners at this stage, because mine rate is below power cost for GPU mining nowadays.... also I think a currency that is just wasting power is one of the absolutely dumbest things to ever surface in this world. Bitcoin actually has a very real cost to society attached to it, both in CO2 emissions, power usage and general resource waste. Power, after all, does not come from renewable sources in most countries...

So Bitcoin is actually contributing to climate change.... ;p

Is it just me or is this fucking trend getting tiresome to anyone else? I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS ZOMBIE SHIT. Everything these days is about zombies. Holy shit, how unoriginal and boring can you be? I'd like to buy some originality, Alex.

Which is even more hilarious considering you can still make zombie games ... but why the heck do they all make human zombies? No sci-fi? no fantasy? No ideas!

I am past Zombies right now. Walking Dead = Dropped.
Only thing with zombies I still am sort of attached (but more because I bought the pack) is Walking Dead by Telltale.. speaking of that, where the hell is the next episode!

So there is a free roam mode where anyone can join into your game and there is a story mode which is strictly single player?
I don't quiet understand how the MP works.

looks like MP is something that would be too distracting while trying to play the story mode, do you really want some random or friend entering into your game and taking you away from the objective you're working on?

The other MP mode looks like they use match making to create mini hotspots in the world where you go at it team vs team, this will be ruined by the fact that there won't be any dedicated server hosts (I assume), also unless you're playing with a group of friends working together it'll probably be more frustrating than fun.

MP checkpoint racing, I'm not into that. I usually wreck when playing single player checkpoint racing and constantly restart the race when I screw up.

cheat protection on the PC? I guess nobody knows if there is any.

also, uplay required? It doesn't bother me much but it's not Steam so your friends lists won't carry over.

If the game is like Farcry 3... which I think it will be, then uPlay is required, you have to login a second time within the game, and there'll be no anti-cheat or proper servers. And the MP you can find will have horrible ping. Ubisoft simply never learns... but they do make interesting games ;/

Shouldn't the valuable lesson have been: read reviews and watch Let's Plays before buying?

That's kinda implied by that I can't know what I want to play until I seen a let's play.. ;p Reviews on the other Hand.... I have peculiar tastes when it comes to games and reviews usually never mention the issues that would be issues for me....

But since to me, Kickstarter/Pledging is "buying" too, I have to make some concessions. In the end, I really want to play D:OS and Pillars of Eternity, no matter the reviews. And watching let's plays of an RPG like PoE would be... a bit.. weird. I rarely if ever see Let's plays where the people play like I would

Mine was X:Rebirth.. and you can likely guess my current stance on pre-orders

Yeah...that really sucked. I think the hardest thing to deal with is that even if the game worked perfectly the controls on the spaceship and how you traveled between systems was terrible. What stopped me from playing was the constant need to travel on those dumb highway tubes and the fact that I could never look at the map and see where I was going. Plenty of other stuff wrong as well but every time I'd try and look around, explore I couldn't figure out how to understand where I was going and what was around me.

Today's beta update actually changed both those things (the highways and the map.)

No idea how the new stuff works, I'm not subscribed to the beta patches, but maybe... just maybe...

Don't make us hope... ;p Not gonna reinstall the game unless there is MASSIVE praise here for it....

Yeah, I'm still fucking pissed over that. 7 months later, and the game is still a giant piece of shit. They're STILL fixing fucking crash bugs! There must have been at least 700 of them.

Hey, they've killed their company with it, so I hope they enjoyed all that preorder money.
