Just spent an hour of actual flight time doing the Vanduul Swarm. Eh, it's ok. Has potential. Maybe more than I would've expected. As I played more and got a little better, it got better. Still, it's lightyears behind Elite: Dangerous.

Stuff that sucked about Arena Commander: [...]

What's the point of your rant? It doesn't help anybody, neither the developers (do you believe they check BluesNews for comments?), nor the gamers. You're testing alpha code of a part of an unfinished game! Quoting from the SC webpage:
Remember: V0.8 is just the beginning. It’s the start of a hard push for the development team as we head towards V0.9 and finally V1.0, at which point Arena Commander will be ‘feature complete’ with the modes, maps and options promised at PAX. By the time V1.0 drops, we aim for the entire community to have access to the multiplayer game modes!

That's just, like.. his opinion on this release, man.

Blast processing!

The power differences and resulting PR circus reminds me very much of the Super Nintendo vs Genesis days.. except MS fucked up big time compared to anything sega did in that generation. Can't wait to see their equivalent of the 32x

I have fond memories of playing the original Mario Kart, on the superNES. Or was it Mario Kart 2? Anyways, rose-tinted glasses in full on nostalgia mode engaged!

The original Mario Kart was the SuperNES version, Super Mario Kart.

It's looking like the only console that I will be buying this generation is probably going to be WiiU. It's the only real game console that remains, the others have seemed to just become less powerful PCs with "exclusives" sprinkled here and there.

It's nice that, even with underpowered hardware compared to the big two, they seem to make the best console experience still with their games and focus on bringing people together IRL for some of the most memorable game experiences out there. I hope they make good enough decisions going forward that they remain a viable console gaming platform. My PC does everything else I really need. I still use the PS3 for DLNA in the home theater room, for which it does an admirable job. If the WiiU supports DLNA that would blow the PS3 out of the water from a functionality standpoint.. with the convenience of the included touchscreen for media control.

It's just sad to see how little stuff there is in WD, while said stuff IS in GTA*4*.

FTFY

Small example: run over a fire hydrant in GTA4 and you can see what happens when a developer knows that details matter.

If only Namco would pull their head out of their asses and release Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on PC I would be in fighting game heaven right now.

It warms my heart to see games I love ditching GFWL though, going to play the steamworks multiplayer tonight and see how smoothly the transition is going

Nope, the AI is still just there to take fire from enemies and shoot back a little bit.

If you're playing a game like this with AI though, you're doing it wrong. This is meant to be 4 human players against the cop AI, and is a much better game when played that way. You shouldn't have any problems finding a game with humans.

If you want to avoid meeting any "colorful" individuals over the voice chat you can turn that off too.

Definitely get NAM, but during installation of the mod you can choose which features to include - I recommend new players turn off all but the couple that actually relate to optimising traffic. There are a few nice additions available if you want but most of it just clutters up the game's menus.

Will do. Thanks for the heads-up.

I dont see how you can compare a casual rpg with a competitive online shooter.. the expectations are just different.

If you're trying to attract the hardcore competitive shooter crowd and keep them engaged, you better damn well not be shitting on them with your engine in every match they play.

I got SimCity4 for free when Origin was giving it out, but haven't played it yet...

Would it be a good idea to just install the NAM mod from the get-go or would you recommend playing vanilla first?

20. Re: Sergey Brin says he's 'kind of a weirdo' and shouldn't have worked on Google+. May 29, 2014, 20:52 Mordecai Walfish
 
Google + has been nothing but a burden to people who use google services and has fucked up my youtube account beyond repair apparently.

I don't know exactly when it happened but I somehow got separated into two youtube accounts and have found no way to fix this. It's prevented me from seeing my playlists in XBMC, for example, by making my regular login go to a blank youtube account. Then they force anyone in the comments to have a google+ account just so they can claim higher numbers for their shitty platform.. it's all just a fucking mess.

This will put the release closer to when the new consumer VR headsets are available.

Should be interesting to see if they can roll all of this together and not let "valve-time" push steam machines into irrelevance..

DICE has a long-standing tradition of announcing new Battlefield games before they fix the last one..

In that light.. it seems about time for a new Battlefield announcement =)

PhysX does work universally, you just have to do it in the CPU with AMD, but it works. I've done it. It only works on nVidia hardware because it's their technology, and they can dictate who gets to use it. I'm sure that even if nVidia offered to license it out, AMD wouldn't pay the fees, and so we'd still be in the same place we are now.

Since then, I think they may have changed the drivers so you can't do that anymore, but that could just be to alleviate any responsibility from people breaking their systems and then trying to blame nVidia or something, but I won't speculate, unlike what some seem to want to do in this thread...
Well except it doesn't work universally. If it worked universally then I could slap a 520GT in my machine and let it do the physx calculations, but I can't. The reason? Because nvidia deliberately crippled their drivers, going as far as reversing gravity and introducing timebombs to slow users machines down to a crawl. If you had both a amd and nvidia card.

I had a problem with Nvidia and AMD "licensed" motherboards a couple years ago when I was trying to run SLI on my motherboard that had dual x16 lanes. IT was only "crossfire compatible" because of paid compatibility agreement bullshit that both nVidia and AMD partake in in order to cripple PC's with certain configurations.

I used the program HyperSLI and it worked wonderfully. Got amazing SLI performance from my crossfire-only board. This also worked to allow nVidia cards as physX and AMD for graphics without compatibility issues or performance drains.

Ok, so I downloaded this from TPB(yea sue me, already got burned by AC4 horrible PC port, and Uplay can suck a fat one) and lo and behold, the stuttering in this game makes it nearly unplayable. It seems it's the same type of v-sync issues from AC4 is here.

So yea, save your money.

Hope you got the skidrow version that had the bonus DLC.


ahahahahahahah this made me LOL. It's not just a new scene release.. it's the currency of the future!

It's bad enough that every imagination-deficient American is naming their poor kid Aiden these days -- now imagination-deficient game developers are naming their characters Aiden too?

Ah yes, the ongoing circle-jerk of art imitating life and then art attracting life to imitate it back. I foresee an army of fedora wearing gender-confused youths named Aiden on the rise.. and the currency of the future shall be raw denim and fine Arabica coffee beans
