Very impressive indeed and it's free.

Well, it's F2P. Apparently you can buy "hatch points" or something like that and they are much less expensive while the game is still in early alpha but it was impossible to get a look at the site yesterday because the servers were almost dead.
Was lucky enough to get the torrent file and download the game.

That "schoolby" must be smart...

"Modest Shouryya began solving complicated equations as a six year old but says he's no genius."

How does he have such a low image of himself? He really thinks that he's not a genius even after solving this at 16?

But what, exactly, did he solve?
The story never actually says, only that he "solved two fundamental particle dynamics theories" that "professors claimed they were uncrackable" but that "physicists have previously been able to calculate only by using powerful computers."

So, essentially he solved an uncrackable theory that had already been cracked by a computer?
Did he just come up with a way to crack the theory that didn't involve a computer? A shortcut of sorts?
And as for calculating a baseball's path, I thought they've been able to do that for years.

Basically he solved two mathematical problems relating to Newtonian mechanics.
The only way to solve these equations so far was to use a numerical method which is always only an approximation. A human could do it, too, but not as precise as a computer and definitely not as fast.
That guy basically found an analytical solution to these differential equations, something mathematicians were apparently not able to do so far. An analytical solution is usually an exact solution to a problem because it tries to make as little, or none at all, approximations as possible.
One of the problems was about throwing an object in the gravitational field of a planet (e.g. earth) while under influence of drag or air resistance. There was a an exact solution to the differential equation of the trajectory of a object without drag but none for the one with drag.
The second problem was apparently about throwing an object against a wall and calculating its full trajectory, i.e. also how it bounces back. I am not sure what exactly they mean by that because none of the articles I read was too specific about that, unfortunately, and I also was not able to find a paper with the solutions to these problems.

Here's a post from one of the threads

Hello all,

I had my diablo 3 account hacked today. All my items gone and gold liquidated. Blizzard rolled it back to where I was a day and a half before. Meaning I lost around 20 hours of game time play. Not only that, but from what I've read, it seems to be blizzard's fault. My password is a random combination of capitalized and uncapitalized letters, numbers, and special characters. My security question answer is also unknowable by anyone but me.

I was told I'd have to use an authenticator now to use the Real money auction house, and if it happened again, my account would be banned from the RMAH. What is up with that? Blizzard has security flaws and I get punished? So ontop of losing 20 hours of gameplay, I have to use an authenticator to login to my account now, and am teetering on the edge of never using the RMAH? FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!

I just reformatted this computer in anticipation for diablo 3. I have no programs on here but diablo 3, an EVGA overclocker, and internet explorer. I'm also on a secure wired connection, with a legitimate copy of windows 7. I know my stuff, I majored in comp sci in college. Don't treat me like an idiot. This is not my fault.

So now basically Blizzard is treating this guy's account as suspect and will penalize him for their lack of security.

It is to laugh

Blizzard being incompetent?
Who saw THAT coming!!1! I was like "WOAH"!?

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Nexuiz for PC
3. Re: Ships Ahoy - Nexuiz for PC May 11, 2012, 02:20 yuastnav
 
The most confusing thing is that Nexuiz was actually a game that used a modified version of the Quake engine and was published under the GPL.
Then the name was licensed to Illfonic and they scrapped the engine and the artstyle and replaced it with something different.

... what the hell?

Definitely looking forward to that. Really enjoyed Saints Row 3. It's so over the top its hilarious. It also doesn't make the mistake of taking itself too seriously, like the newer GTA titles. Which did not do them much good, but that is just the way I see things (the GTA titles are still fun but I enjoyed Saints Row 2 and Saints Row 3 much more).

I couldn't even finish Risen because I got so bored with it.
I loved Gothic 1 and 2 to bits, Gothic 1 is still my most favourite game of all time, but Risen just felt like more of the same and it's getting tedious.
I really wish Piranha Bytes would just try something new but apparently many developers are afraid of that in today's industry.

Great game.
Still sad that they decided to scrap the settlment game mechanics, though. I don't even know the reason since I stopped playing the beta after the middle of October due to a lack of time.
The game will get grindy but the exploration is still tons of fun. And it is much easier to play now.

Tribes: Ascend is the world's fastest shooter.

As much as I love this game this is simply not true. I believe this title is still held by Quake 1/ezQuake or Quake 3 CPMA.

What's even more weird is that the original Nexuiz was based on the Quake 1 engine while this one uses the CryENGINE so basically everything that is left of the original game is the name.
That's pretty stupid.

What a ridiculously sensationalist post. Any serious PC gamer should have a X360 controller as there are a lot of genres that benefit from it. For instance, if you don't have a steering wheel then a controller is the next best thing for racing games and dramatically better than a keyboard - and they're great for fighting games, platformers, third-person action games, sports games, casual flight/combat simulators and a lot of indie games. They're incredibly cheap and you can use several at the same time, which is great when you have friends around. It's long since taken over from the joystick as the most popular secondary peripheral.

This is just not true. I don't even understand why it's such a difficult concept to understand. It varies on a person by person basis! You may think that controllers are better for platformers, third person action games, racing games etc. but that does not mean this is true for everyone. Playing these games with a keyboard and mouse setup is much easier for me because I am much more used to that control scheme and using controllers is really awkward for me and actually tires my fingers from that awkward positioning. It is much easier for me to do precise movement with the keyboard than a controller. For someone who has no problems using a controller that may be not true but that does not mean that everyone is equally capable in usin a controller.
People can be so self-centered sometimes. My way or the highway.

[edit]
I mean - I don't care. AC1 and AC2 were good games and I had a lot of fun, even with kb/m (I thought the controls were rather good, not bad at all) but if that's what they want to do. Okay, fuck 'em.
But I'm sure I am not the only one who nigh to always prefers using the kb/m setup as oppossed to controllers so when ubi does something like this it just sucks.
Although this would not be the first time. I remember that I had to use a joystick to play X-Wing Alliance. (afair the game would not even start if there was no joystick plugged in; it's still strange, though, since I played FreeSpace 2, Freelancer and the X Series all with mouse and keyboard and had never any problems, at all)

I don't see why people get so upset about a console game needing a console controller. Even if it's on the PC why does this really bother anyone? If you make a flight sim you will likely enjoy it more with a joystick. If you make a driving game you'll likely enjoy it more for with a wheel. (or a joystick or gamepad)

I like the option of playing these games on the PC with a controller. Loved Deus Ex PC with a controller, loved Skyrim PC with a controller. I'm guessing this won't be a $35 sale as deus ex was or as awesome as skyrim was so unless they offer a significant discount and ship it without always on DRM I don't see any of this mattering.

360 game for me.

I never had a console and always played with either keyboard or mouse and keyboard. For the last 20 years. Controllers are really, really awkward to use for me and the only games where I'd even consider using one would be with sports games and flight simulators. That's it. I am much more used to KB/M than anything else so controllers are just not an option to me and a useless accessory.

From what I understand there will be Keyboard and Mouse support, it's just that it will get little attention.

Well, they can screw themselves.

I laugh at ze americans and your caps, last months usage for me , 314gb ... not even a friendly call from my ISP.... bleh. And 250gb of that was a back-up image I had to download from a friends FTP - it took a while

So yeah, in germany a flatrate is a flatrate, no limits, no bullshit. No overage fees, though you can buy capped lines too, for extremely cheap. Ever since I heared rumours about "golden handshakes" from ISP's to get high users out of the contract i tried this every now and then. My ISP never even budged. Which means, i must be pretty average in my usage around here, which kinda scares me

The last time I heard/read about something like that actually happening was on some forum about six or seven years ago or so.
Apparently they tried to get power users to cancel their subscription if they got over 100GB/month but as I said - it was relatively long ago and I don't think they are doing that anymore.

I never played Dungeon Master but judging from the pictures/videos I saw of Legend of Grimrock it looks kinda neat. Recommendations?

I'm a huge fan of the genre (first person party based dungeon crawl) and it looks like the Grimrock guys have done a fair amount of work to bring the old magic of titles like Dungeon Master to a modern format.

If you like a good dungeon hack, 12 bucks isn't a hell of an investment.

Thanks for the input!

Not sure what to expect but I just figured 'what the hell' and preordered it.

Good for you.
I'd take the PC over consoles any time, for all of these games. Apart from that I'd not even bother.

I'm as much a PC guy as anyone else, I also have a PS3 for games that are clearly made with a console in mind. Mass Effect being a prime example of this, what good are higher resolutions when the game plays like ass on the pc? Seems pretty counter intuitive just to play it on a desktop pc rather than a 360/PS3 pc.

Incidentally I just started playing Mass Effect and I couldn't even imagine playing it with anything else than Mouse/Keyboard or on anything else than a PC. It seems completely unreasonable to me.
