Last hurray for Magic 2014. Magic 2015 will likely hit by midmonth if prior years are any indication

2014 was the first year I actually didn't buy of DoTP, have they made any actual improvements or still have the random bugs, and mostly just more like EA Sports games roster updates?

I did not play the previous years. There are a few bugs, but nothing huge. 2014 uses pre-built decks and about half of them were shit and half were okay and 2 or 3 outliers were really good. 2015 is moving away from pre-built decks. You build your own decks in 2015.

Anyone familiar with comparisons of other FPS titles, say Titanfall and CS:GO?

I'm sorry... what? How is this optional, client-side fix supposed to help things?

Probably 3/4 of the players are going to be completely oblivious and NOT use it, for starters. But then if you do decide to use it, what exactly will it accomplish? Will you be transmitting your actions to the server and thus other players with less latency, so that they can more accurately keep track of you? Or are you pulling data from the server at a faster rate so that you can more accurately keep track of everyone else? You need to be doing both, for everybody, to actually fix gameplay issues. At least, I would think so.

Haven't they had broadband internet as a requirement for online action games for the past decade? Why are they designing "netcode" to accomodate people with less than 1 Mbit? They need to specify whether that's up or down, but either way, the point stands. At the very least, let it be a server-specific setting with filters in the browser, so you can avoid high latency environments where the 56kers or barebones DSL schmucks are hanging out.

Valve does the same thing for any Source engine based game, dude. By default the update rate(updates requested from cpu tick) and command rate(updates sent to server per cpu tick) are set to 66. On servers that change server side cvars, you can set your rates up to 125(the max commonly supported by high quality servers). These must be set manually and they are not indicated anywhere in the configuration. It sounds like DICE is actually doing a bit better by placing it in the settings menu somewhere.

Nice to see Distant Worlds in the list. Despite its hefty price, it's easily the best 4x space game ever made and the devs are making a mistake pricing this game so high.

Seems very Escape Velocityish

While AMD/ATI is far from blameless, most of the corporate shenanigans in the GPU wars have been done by nVidia.

...

nVidia makes great stuff. But their corporation is terrible.

nVidia follows the Creative model of suing their competitors with frivolous shit and then buying and burying their technology after they've crippled the company through their litigation. I don't care what ATi did with Valve 10 years ago or with Tomb Raider, killing your competition with bullshit courtroom antics is beyond the pale.

For reference, nVidia did to 3dfx what Creative did to Aureal

What little they spoke about this game always sounded too good to be true, no surprises here.
I would love to see an MMO that is open world that is challenging, unfortunately it looks like I am doomed to follow the hack job MMOs like Mortal Online and Darkfall or some kind of Korean grinder.

Or you could just play Eve

This is rather sad. The tech demo had the feel of a seedy modern world down really well, and CCP is always willing to put forth the effort to make things right in the end. They also recruited the developers that were screwed by 38 Studios/Curt Schilling and the woeful mismanagement of the Kingdoms of Amalur MMO that they were developing

Hmmm, why such steep PC requirements then???

Probably because they're taking it seriously rather than just making a token port.

Or, they're making a very very poor port that nukes resources.

You never know with Ubi

Why not open it up to the populace to replace the master servers just like Gamespy did when the Quake master servers went buh-bye?

uick question, why do you believe that Facebook is the most evil corporation in the world? How is it any less or more evil than Sony, or Microsoft for that matter?? [/quote:

Because Facebook has little business with a device of this nature unless the goal is to migrate it away from the serious gaming it was envisioned for. Facebook needs competition for Google Glass, and this gives them a Glass that's a different kind of Glass. Sony sees it for gaming, which is why they announced their own last week.

I predict this will drive Sony a ton of business they wouldn't have had

Q: Should I wait to buy a new PC or GPU?
A: No – if you buy a PC with supported graphics hardware (over 80% of gamer PCs currently being sold), you’ll be able to enjoy all the power of DirectX 12 games as soon as they are available.

Does not specify whether they are going to force you to upgrade to Win8 in order to use it.. I suspect they will, given recent history

first Sony shafted us with extremely low stock of PS4's compared to other regions, and now they're raising the prices? thanks for screwing your customers over...

this pretty much makes the Xbox One Titanfall bundle for $50 more a better deal.

The CAN lost value. That's how economics works

It's a bit hard to cut your (insanely high) prices to "counter" your rivals when your rivals have mostly decided to give their stuff away for free. I think Microsoft needs to hop on the clue train and realize that if they want to continue to push Windows as the platform of choice they need to make it a no cost option (at least on the home consumer end of the spectrum).

Of course Microsoft is so completely clueless that if they ever did do something like that we'd get "Windows Basic" for free that would be so stripped out as to be absolutely useless because that's just how they roll.

Like? Ubuntu killed itself with Unity. It's dead. There is no other desktop Linux system that is anywhere close on the consumer side.

Apple charges for service packs.

Who else is there?

Battlefield has had wonky problems, netcode issues, balance issues, etc since it was Codename Eagle. I don't expect any different, despite the nice sheen they've put on the game.
