News Comments > Saints Row IV Gat out of Hell Trailer
7. Re: Saints Row IV Gat out of Hell Trailer Jan 17, 2015, 06:14 yuastnav
 
Finished Saints Row IV last night after playing and ragequitting the game when it crashed several times during the last mission, way back in Autumn 2013.
Also read that the Saints Row series is basically done, i.e. there is no way to go further and take it to the next level since apparently there is no next level.

Well, I guess that's true and we're seeing it now.

Okay.

Somehow I didn't expect it so soon.

Why is this and GTA V going to be released in the same month as a conference I have to go to? :/

I guess I'm the only one who found GTA 5 to be not great? I mean, some of the heists were cool and you didn't have to haul your cousin to titty bars every 15 minutes of gameplay but 5 overall kind of went over lukewarm for me.

I already paid 60 bucks for it when it came out last generation. Even with a technical overhaul, it's the same story and the same old shit.

Okay, good to know. I actually didn't play GTA V since I only have a PC and I wasn't planning on buying it. Most people kept praising the game and saying that it's fun despite its flaws; so I figured I might as well get in on the fun.

Personally I'm a totally a fan of open world games, that's why I love games like ETS2 and E:D so much, even though there is actually not that much to do and it gets boring. Exploring or running/driving around in a world is enough.
It has to feel alive, though. Proteus was kind of a live and was all about exploration but I found it boring so there needs to be a world I can interact with.
I guess the story becomes secondary.

I'll keep your experience in mind, though.

Okay, how about this: how about you first finish one game and then start your next project, mmmkay?

Or at least address it:

"We'll be releasing final code for Space Engineers in March. Meanwhile, here's a look at our next game in the very early design stage."

The worst thing is that they wrote in their newsletter

We are excited to announce *Medieval Engineers*, our second "engineering" game. As you may already know, the first, Space Engineers, was released in October 2013 and sold over 1 million copies in its first year, and is still keeping its bestseller position.

which, while not a blatant lie, sounds like they released a finished game. Which they did not. Space Engineers is still in early access.

HDD Space: 65GB

Wat.

So how is this even possible? I thought this game was supposed to run on the older console generation? Or did they add any fancy enhancements to the PC version (as if)?
I also like how they said four days ago that it's not going to be delayed and somehow they suddenly realised that that's actually necessary.

They should have retooled the game to work on their carrier command engine, something to give it more of a "game" feel than a man simulator. Even Arma 3 doesn't make for an overwhelmingly enjoyable experience when it comes down to gameplay.

Really? I didn't play Arma 2 much because the interface was too clunky but I've put about 40 hours into the singleplayer of Arma 3 and it was a blast. It's so much better and playing it is fun.

Pretty sure Bose has all the patents for overpriced.

So your definition of overpriced doesn't depend on the quality of the product?

I wouldn't use the same label for Beats and Bose products...

Why not? Same thing, mediocre products with a high price tag and a lot of marketing.

Wait, don't tell me you got suckered into buying Bose..

No, but I was thinking about buying their QuietComfort 25 headphones because I read they have very good sound quality and noise cancellation abilities.

Don't know much else about Bose products.

I swear this is what kept me from playing Deponia (this and the inanely stupid puzzles). I guess I'll just have to skip every cutscene and mute the characters' voices.

Oh god no. Trevor (the trailer park drug addict) has some amazing commentary. Franklin/Michael are sort of typical for their roles but still aren't bad, but Trevor alone or Trevor interacting with the other two is great. There is more than a fair share of foul language, but not overdone IMO.

Watched all the cutscenes in GTA 5, a bit goofy but overall interesting.

Well the protagonist of Deponia is the most arrogant, self-centred prick that you've ever seen. As long as there aren't any overly arrogant characters in GTA 5 I'm good. I think I just read somewhere that that's case so it's likely that I'm wrong but you never know.

I don't follow.
How does everyone suffer because some people that got rich for no reason gets their bank account reset?

This exact same thing happens in real life too, in fact I ones had like 300 grand deposited onto my bank account by accident where the bank fucked up and someone's mortgage was put onto my account.
Was the bank supposed to write that off as their fuck up and let me spend it all?

Dont be stupid Spectral, we are NOT talking about real life money here. OKAY? And I was under the impression that the entire server was getting rolled back, that was what I am referring to. those kind of roll backs effect everyone.

Reading the article would have helped.

I have a T530. I got it because I was told that Thinkpads are great for running Linux on them. Basically I wanted a machine that's really robust, that I can carry with me everywhere, and that has good Linux support, a good screen and a good keyboard since I do a lot of programming on it.
I was rather disappointed by the T530 and I guess I'm not alone. I fear that while IBM was still making the hardware they were a lot more Linux friendly than Lenovo is right now.
Also that thing is not really as robust as the earlier models but it was still sad to see that it was more robust than anything else.

I'm curious what they are going to make in the future but I'm not getting my hopes up, especially about them making a "true successor" to the T61.

I'm still really pissed at how they broke the interface for the battery and that it's much more difficult now to use it properly, like setting thresholds etc.

At work I have a 4 year old W510, This has been very good for me through out the years running Linux. I'm not entirely sure what issues you had with the T530, sometimes it's just one thing that can ruin things...


From what I can see is that a lot changed with the x30 series. People didn't have many issues with the x10 and x20; one thing that I mentioned is that you cannot set the thresholds for the battery properly. There is an acpi hack but I think it was just proof of concept and isn't supported anymore.
Another thing was something that is not native to this series but is a problem in general and it's the Nvidia Optimus issue but it's a total mess anyway and I hope that at least Wayland will, at some point, support on the fly switching between two video cards, though the issue still stands that there will be no out of the box kernel support for that. Not unless Nvidia releases the source code and that's not going to happen.
The hard drive is supposed to "lock" when that thing falls but that is not something that is supported at all.

I bought this thing in early 2013 and I guess my disappointment stems from the fact that I had major issues in the beginning, some of which have been resolved but replaced by others.

I had a broken pixel (though it's fixed now) but I guess this is not Linux related.
What WAS Linux related is that the thing randomly froze and that was related to some low power mode which was only recently (back then) implemented in the kernel for the Sandy Bridge architecture. After a week or so I figured out that you had to switch that feature off since I'm using Debian and it took some time before we got the kernel patch for that.
Another thing is, like I mentioned in my last post, that the T530 is just very "soft" and doesn't feel robust at all. It also boggles my mind why there is no Caps Lock indicator and no separate microphone jack. These are some moronic design decisions. But again, these are not Linux problems but issues with the design of the T530 in general.

All in all it was a rather disappointing experience, seeing as this was my first Thinkpad and since I've only heard praise about the series before I bought mine.

As far as the Lenovo launch...

I've been involved as a tester for Lenovo's products for about a year now and...well actually I might be under NDA, should probably check up on that, but I'll choose my words carefully. Lenovo is definitely shooting for specific markets and even specific competitors with their new and upcoming line-ups. A lot of their testing and questioning has revolved about mobile devices (portables), all-in-one devices (iMac), and smart devices (smartphones and home appliances). If you've seen their new Yoga commercials then you already know one of their target competitors.

Thought I'd share for those curious on here. Lenovo is a huge PC producer these days and they are breaking into other markets at a steady pace. Their research indicates they might breakout this year and surprise people so don't be afraid to take a chance on at least looking up their products.

P.S. the only Lenovo products I purchased myself are a pair of USB speakers and a wireless mouse

Are they going to implement crews?

I think most ships are max. for 3 or so people, right?
I think the Anaconda is the only one, that I've seen/know of so far that has a bigger crew. I think it's a few dozen people, right?

Happy new year, Commanders!

Christmas family invasions seem to have a enforced a break in ED for me. I've switched to replaying fodder from the last few years; Prince of Presia (2nd time), Bioshock Infinite (3rd time) done. Latest Tomb Raider (for the 3rd time) being hit, after that Alice Madness Returns (again only 2nd time) is on the list.

I'm basically holding off because I want some filler in the ship lineup to provide some options (142k Viper > 30m+ dropship is one hell of a gap) and a massive ramp up in terms of AI difficulty.

My biggest problem is if you can fly the viper well there is no common NPC in the game who can kill you, and no player can catch you. There is no current danger and unless you care for ranks the best you can hope to achieve is a slower, better armed more automatic fighter.

Haha yeah, I've been playing Risen 3, Dungeon Crawl, Rollercoaster Tycoon, been watching Avatar, playing guitar... anything but playing Elite Dangerous.
I just cannot figure out how to make money. You guys kinda sold me on the ASP and so that's the ship I am going to save money for, since 175 million for the Anaconda is just too much, but 6 million is still a lot of money.
Especially because you'd also need to get all the good upgrades, which will cost you probably double of what you'd spend for the ASP.
But once I'd get the ASP... I dunno, I'd probably start exploring the far reaches of the universe. Maybe see whether I can get to the other side of the galaxy or something like that.

Congratulations on the promotion.

The ASP is still very far away for me since I haven't played over Christmas (I got busy with Dungeon Crawl and Rollercoaster Tycoon) and the Alliance still refuse to let me in. Well, their loss. >_>

Unfortunately there is not much progress in 78 Ursae Majoris for the Alliance, at the moment.

Though I wonder how big an influence players can have on the standing of the different factions in the systems. From what I can see it is somehow related to the population and people managed to start Civil wars in different systems by supporting on certain faction.
I hope that there are going to be more of these events, like in Sorbago. How involved were the devs in this actually?

Personally I haven't tried the 360 controller yet but it's very playable with mouse and keyboard.
I can kill anything (I've not fought against players yet, though - cannot find any...) alone, except for an elite Anaconda. But most of the time there are security forces that help you out, sort of.

I can only recommend anyone, who has doubts, to try the MKB setup.
