The LaserScope headset review was freaking hilarious, especially because of the way it was advertised on the box.

MajorD, thanks for the info! I'll do what you suggested and try to join the fray! If that doesn't help and I'm on my own I'll definitely email you! This won't happen untill somewhere next week -- responsibilities at work make the wallet smile but the person depressed

Sounds good.

...responsibilities at work make the wallet smile but the person depressed . Yeah, it's bitter sweet, isn't it.

John Carmack, over hyped.

That is a knee-jerk ignorant comment. John Carmack essentially pioneered 3D/FPS gaming as we know it today, and was very adamant about sharing his code/technology for everyone to build upon…and wow, look where FPS gaming is today. So, show some respect!

I’m excited to see his work and influence with Oculus Rift.

News Comments > RAGE Free Weekend
41. Re: RAGE Free Weekend Nov 22, 2013, 13:12 MajorD
 

I wanted to see/verify a few things in RAGE, so I went to fire it up and was prompted with an option to run an unsupported 64bit version. So I figured I would give it a whirl; the game launched, ran through the initial intro movie, and then the screen went black for a few minutes until it finally started the game. No difference; still ugly low res textures and pop-in textures.......There was hope, but I'm not surprised.

RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter... Rotfl Rotfl Rotfl

...and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology Rotfl Rotfl Rotfl

...RAGE promises an experience like no other. Confused

WTF are they smoking???

Just bought Arma II: the complete package for 8 dollars. I know I'm very late at the party I should've asked this before buying the sale but.. Are people still playing that DayZ mod? I'm dying to give it a shot!

Well I'm late to the party with an answer for you. You'll still find people playing, but if I can recommend one thing for you, it is downloading and installing DayZ Commander if you haven't already, as it makes things so much easier: Updating ARMA II, Updating DayZ, downloading new maps, downloading sub-mods, etc.

I haven't played I a while, so if you need someone to cover your back, shoot me an eMail from my profile.

Yeah, I'm glad I didn't get it, but still disappointed how it's doing, out of the gate.

Yeah, it is too bad it was/is such a mess at launch. I was considering getting this game, but I am glad I stuck to my guns on waiting for reviews first! Ever since BRINK, and then RAGE, I told myself NO MORE 'day one launch purchases', and I have stuck to that without any regrets whatsoever. Now, I just smile to myself when games continue to NOT live up to all their hype, which seems to be more and more...

Besides, I have plenty of other games sitting on my shelf that I need to go back and finish, or start and finish for that matter, which I started to do some time ago and has been working out nicely so far. I have an ongoing list of games I've been interested in, then after a year or so I grab them off of Amazon at a fraction of the cost ($20.00 and LESS vs. $49.00 to $59.00). This formula works well with SP games, which I play much more of than MP games. So, with MP games I just wait until most of the post release QA testing and fixing has been done, thanks to all those who purchase the broken games on release day. I’m still waiting for BF4 for example, as from what I have read that game still has a considerable amount of bugs and issues that need to be fixed. Maybe if Santa Clause gives it to me for Christmas, most of the bugs and issues will be fixed by then.

I guess all that can be considered voting with my wallet….

It's like complaining that your Triumph or MG keeps breaking down. Duh, look at the manufacturer. What'd you honestly expect?


LOL! Oh boy, I had a 68 MG(B) in high school, and yeah, those Lucas electronics caused a lot of mysterious electronic voodoo breakdowns. It was a fun car, but it forced me to quickly learn a lot about cars. Good times....

Oh yeah, this is an X Rebirth thread.....carry on....

The animation system is still just bleh.
Don't get me wrong the idea I love, but by the time this comes out in 2014-15, the game is going to be so dated that it'll be left in the dust. At this point why not take what they have done and use the ARMA 3 engine?

Yeah, I'm with you. I put a lot of hours into the mod and was pumped for this stand alone game, but that interest has become less and less the more time goes on. The Zombie craze already reached its pinnacle a while ago, so unless they release this sooner than later, it will not do as well as it potentially could.

Don't get me wrong, I hope we're all WOWed, and that they do well with the game, but I have a feeling it is not going to do as well as it could have if released a year ago. I do realize it is still Alpha footage, etc., but it only looks like they have been enhancing the UI, menu systems, some of the graphics, and added some new animations (kind of clunky); however, the game overall still looks as clunky as it did in its mod stage.

@PsychoMoggieBagpuss: Thank you, much appreciated. Thumbsup


You're welcome!

Something to tide you by while you download

Thief
System Shock 2


Obviously you'll want to grab the latest SHTUP and rebirth mods for SS2, the first provides higher res texture, the second high res enemy models. Can get those here , some other good mods and that over at https://www.systemshock.org/ as well (for both SS and thief).

I'm sure you've seen this HD Texture mod for Thief Gold that is in the works, which is shaping up nicely. But anyone that is a hardcore purest may not like the artistic license the mod author ran with on the textures. I'm looking forward to checking this out; it is scheduled to be released December 9th

At least I can content myself replaying the glory that was the original T1 and T2 (and SS2!) in high res goodness thanks to that unofficial patch that came out in September 2012.

Did I miss this one? Please share a link to this 'high res goodness unofficial patch' you speak of you Taffer. Wink

I'm not sure what worries me more: The radical redesign of Thief that included stuff like this, or the fact that certain items like this are being redesigned when they're at something like 3 months from shipping...

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate them listening to feedback, but it still worries me...

True, it is bitter-sweet. This late in the development it is obviously too late to add jump and change their lazy level/map designs to accommodate it.

This will be a totally new style of game for me, so I'm really curious about the learning curve.

Ah, yes, learning curve....well, picture, if you will, Tiger Woods with a 9-iron. See how after he hits the ball, it curves back down to the ground 150 yards out? There you go. Enjoy! *walks away*
=-Rigs-=

Goodluck Which me luck.

Salute I think you'll enjoy it, just give it a chance and don't go in negative and you shouldn't have a problem. And if you have questions, just ask, one of us will probably know the answer...

Cool! Much appreciated. The exploring and learning will all part of the fun I'm sure.
