Hardly. Why have a giant box if you can have a tiny one?

Just because the PC will go away doesn't mean the monitor and keyboard will, so I don't know why your fear of writing a paper matters.

Because a giant box has more processing power. If you can have huge processing power in something small that means that you will get more if you just make that small box bigger.
If something were to replace the PC it would need to replace the PC's functions and that's not only swappable hardware but the mere ability to install a soundcard, a scsi controller, a dvb-s card and a bunch of other stuff.

A giant box has more processing power for how much longer?
Why do you need swappable hardware? The entire device will be swappable. Why do you need scsi or a soundcard?

You're thinking about a PC still. You're holding on to that concept rather than letting it evolve.

So basically what you're saying is that you can have a device that you can connect to a monitor, a mouse, a power sound system, a tv etc. at will while the device itself is portable?
And even if the processing power evolves to a point where a portable device is as powerful as a PC that would only mean that you could have more of THAT to build a PC that's more powerful than that tablet.

Haha, yeah right.
Somehow everyone says that.
Well, I grant you that Jobs was a clever businessman and had some nifty ideas.
Was he an inventor? Doubtful.

Well, I still pride myself in never having used an Apple product, (I see no use in them, for me) though I use CUPS and it seems to be somewhat related to Apple so even that statement is not entirely true.

I wouldn't go that far...Bethesda STILL has broken quests in FO3 and FO:NV, something which appears to be far more difficult to address than a adding a graphics tweaks menu/configuration file, and getting NV/AMD to clean up their shitty release process....

From a naive point of view I would imagine that fixing quests is easier than tinkering with the fundamental basis of the game e.g. the engine.

The only way it makes sense to develop for a 7 year old console is if you want to reach the widest audience possible and make the most people happy.


Sorry, guys, there are still more Xboxes out there than PCs capable of running Rage. Of course, right now it seems like no PCs are capable of running Rage.

Skyrim will be terrible at launch, too, but Bethesda has far more experience in fixing it up quickly.
Any surprise, now, that Skyrim stuck to its own engine?

Yeah but it wouldn't be a true successor to Oblivion without a terrible launch, now would it - so that is expected.
id is quite a tech-savvy company (or at least was) so it's surprising.

i thought id software stopped using opengl for their games in favor of direct x. didnt carmack mention it on an interview regarding tech 5? he said the draft status of the latest opengl library is hurting developers. maybe the lack of support and unfinished standard is whats causing all these problems.
idTech5 is OpenGL. However, Carmack said that if he were to ever start again he would develop for DirectX, as he says that it has a slightly advantage. However, he also said that they'd done too much work to move over to DirectX and that he'd never rewrite as much code as he did for RAGE.

Basically, he picked OpenGL and now he has to stick with it.

There's not really anything keeping him from writing his next engine in DirectX.
Look at icculus, when he ports a game he single-handedly rewrites all the DirectX code into OpenGL code to make it run on Linux and OS X.
I wouldn't understand why he'd not do it since they're too lazy to port Rage, for example, to Linux anyway.

I for one wish them the best of luck in their endeavor to screw the thieving assholes of this planet big time.
Always-on is no problem at all for the vast majority of serious, legit and honest PC gamers of this world.
It's only a problem for the stealing scum who like to keep their gaming PC(s) offline "just in case" so no one can detect their multiple terabytes of stolen games. Or for the cheapskates who are pissing their pants in sheer angst of any new DRM scheme that might actually all but eliminate piracy or at least delay cracks substantially.

Good luck, GSC! You guys rock!


GSC Gameworld is a company that is located in the Ukraine.
Ukraine is not a very rich country and the connectivity in that country is not very good. Pulling a stunt like that will probably alienate many of the people who live there and would like to play that game.

But, please, you were saying that "always-on is no problem at all for the vast majority of serious, legit and honest PC gamers of this world"?

You know, being a troll is actually quite tricky. If you want to be a good troll then you have to twist your words so no one realises that you are trolling.
If you continue like that you will never become a good troll.
o go back to troll school and try again.

PC Gaming > Must Haves for 2011
10. No subject Oct 8, 2011, 06:32 yuastnav
 
Looking forward to Skyrim and Saints Row 3 at the moment.
And I still hope that they will be able to release X Rebirth in the end of the 2011 or beginning of 2012 since the preliminary release date is Q4 2011 but people on the egosoft forums are speculating that it might be much later than that.
The things they promised in the laster newsletter sounded very awesome indeed.

[edit]
Oh, I hope Renegade Ops will be awesome, too. Last game I played that was anything like that was Zone66.

[...]

Because it adds another unnecessary layer between the software you want to run and the hardware.
Opera and Firefox, the browsers I use (cannot comment about the others), seem to be hogging resources like mad and are quite slow.
Maybe a fresh install with only a few tabs and no add-ons works okay but if you use it more excessively it gets bad.
Why not use browser just for what browsers were initially designed for?

Uhm, most games are primarily made to make a company money. What exactly are you getting at?

Point blank shotgun is still a symphony of awesome on soft targets. The wingsticks are an insta-gib too.

I finally got into the city map last night; the textures definitely aren't up to snuff in that area It may be time for me to upgrade the old 8800s unless some tweak comes out that addresses it. Damn, those cards have lasted me almost forever...5 years now, I think.

It's fucking ridiculous to have to upgrade your GPU for a game like this. The engine is a pile of bad coding. Last week I was still bragging about how my 2 year old gig can still run all the newest games on max settings only for this console port to prove me otherwise? I'm not falling for that, and I feel horribly freaking sad for the people that do. Horribly.

The worst part is that we're talking about id here.
It always seemed to me that they had some of the most competent coders what's with all the new tech they were always pushing.

I guess we're seeing the fall of id here.

I doubt that highly. Every one of their games have had issues, and every game on release someone said that. Hasn't happened yet, and I doubt it will now.

I agree that the PC version of the engine isn't fully baked, but, as I've said numerous times, Carmack is not one to let a project go that still has issues--many here have seen that firsthand. He'll see it through.

And I'm pretty sure that will benefit whatever else they make under idTech5.

Maybe but let me clarify. I didn't mean the the whole company is going to fall.
It's just that PC gamers lost another real PC developer.

Judging something on it's own merit was my topic.

Exactly, this is where my helpful links come into play. Now you can learn about that, too.

Which doesn't mean that there are more fans of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas than there are of Fallout 1 and 2.

Somehow this "enjoy on its own merit" argument is weird. It is a DIRECT sequel which means that yes, it's going to be compared to the predecessors. Nothing abnormal about that.

The last guy that reviewed it (that I read) didn't speak too terribly highly of it. What's part is a blast? Can you sum it up?

I am a sucker for side-scrollers or top-down shooters so I am probably biased but I just love the exploring and the crafting, all the possibilities and the management of the settlements.
Although I have to say that it becomes kind of a grind after some time, things clearly need to be better balanced. But it's still only a beta and it seems like many of the changes can be implemented rather fast.
