The premium subscription is only if you want to go onto citadel's official "shard" servers. For community servers & shards (of which you get your own to run for the price of purchase) the only thing that you pay is the cost of the game, and you have unlimited access without any subscription.

A more sandbox-like ultima online sounds like a helluva lot of fun to me. I plunked down for the $20 tier.. being an alpha tester & longtime player of ultima online I have a soft spot in my heart for games like this =)

Here's the original Steel Battalion controller. They should have stuck with it instead of trying to make it work with Kinect. I was a huge MechWarrior player back in the day and would have died for a controller like this.

The Mek-Fu is a pretty interesting control interface as well, which I would have been amazing for mechwarrior. The razer artemis looked like a cool concept, but required PGI to produce a decent product with mechwarrior online for razer to actually ship the artemis. As of now MWO looks like a failure, and this one will never see the light of day.

I'm much less happy than you are. 1 console getting its ass kicked is fine when there are two healthy ones. We don't have two healthy ones. We have one DOA, one floundering, and one thriving.

Last generation was pretty ideal, to me. One kind of wasn't playing the same game, and the other two were essentially neck-and-neck worldwide.

I agree that healthy competition is necessary for a truly thriving console market, but Microsoft is now in a position where it is re-thinking the xBox1 platform and realizing that they have alienated their core audience. They need this wakeup call in order to (hopefully) get back on the right track. Just like pretty much everything Microsoft ships, it was somewhat of a disaster that will take them years to clean up.

Who makes your monitor? Mine is an LG, but runs at 60hz, hadn't really heard of any 120 or 144 monitors that were IPS, so I haven't even bothered to look. Also, my machine is designed to stay QUIET, and running a higher max fps means more work. At 60 fps, neither video card has to work very hard, and my framerates very VERY rarely dip below that solid 60.

Altho I think, in the end, the Oculus is going to be deciding what upgrades I need (if any).

So now they have an equally priced console.. but at what true cost? The common perception is that they have a compromised vision now, with less impressive hardware that could easily have matched or surpassed it's rival if they would have invested more into making it a fucking games machine and not a set-top box.

The choice is obvious for PS4 this console generation. Personally, I'm glad to see Microsoft in full panic mode, as the xBox1 ship sinks. They made some terrible choices and thoroughly deserve the criticism and poor sales they are getting in response.

News Comments > Red Dead Redemption Windows Listing Spotted
28. Re: Red Dead Redemption Windows Listing Spotted May 13, 2014, 12:39 Mordecai Walfish
 
Looks like it't not going to happen (big surprise there..)

From the neogaf thread:

"I emailed the Windows Compatibility Centre via the Partner Submission portal yesterday. I asked if Red Dead Redemption was an actual program officially submitted by Rockstar Games or Microsoft. I also asked if its possible to submit an app under a company you have no affiliation with like the Super Mario Bros. X game. I asked them to verify Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar before emailing me back.

This is the response I received this morning:

"My apologies for the mistake.
I have removed this game from the catalog and should possibly get removed from Windows Compatibility Center by 5/13 or latest by 5/14."

That's it. The representative didn't say if it was official or not. Just that's its listing was a mistake. "

I don't. Console exclusives being constant rather than an exception was lame as fuck. You basically HAD to have both consoles or you were missing out.

A valid point. That part I certainly do not miss.

My guess is Rockstar will announce GTAV on "next gen" platforms @ E3 (PS4, XB1 & PC). I'm hoping for this, anyway. Guessing release might be a year from the release of the original, maybe in an effort to make buyers of the original not feel ripped-off that a better version is out so soon. Maybe they also want to let the DLC run its course on the current consoles first before releasing a newer version, hoping a lot of people will re-buy for the better graphics and added content.

Waiting a year to release this update also benefits them because of much greater system adoption for the new consoles after they've been out for a year, as well..

I really don't want to have to buy a console to play GTA5, lol.

It is a darned shame that both new consoles arent more hardware kickass.

This may be the first time that I dont bother with a console, which is saying something.

360/ps3 was my first console generation I skipped since the NES. I miss the Nintendo vs Sega days.. MS vs Sony is much less interesting

Played the beta & its boring as hell.. just the generic feeling of starting with the two different classes i played and their cookie-cutter starting areas was my first introduction to the utter blandness of this game.. and it doesnt stray far from generic mmo formula anywhere i saw, playing over level 15 with 2 chars.

i want GTA5 to come out on PC so i can play it with KB+M, like i did playing with all the past GTA games that got ported to PC.

anything with a camera needs a mouse to control it.

i actually use both for gta.. kbm for on foot, controller for vehicles

Ditto. Driving in GTA is too much fun with a controller to use KB/M for it, but once I started playing SA:MP & GTA4 I started to use kb/m on foot for better aiming control in order no not get annihilated online

I had put off getting a controller for years, until Dark Souls, so I've never even tried to play this one with KB/M, and now that I'm a convert, I just can't ever see not doing it like this. Which is also true for a bunch of other games I've had over the years...

Gamepads are just better for some games, and playing them feels better with them in the long run. Both the 360 controller and PS3 controllers were fantastic and work flawlessly in windows, and I actually think I prefer the PS3 controller over the 360 controller. In racing games x360 controller is better, but that's about it. Between those two and my arcade stick, PC gaming wins at the stuff consoles do and so very much more. Now if it wasnt for those damn exclusives making me want to buy a friggin console.. like GTA5.. grrrr

Reopening an accidentally closed tab seems much harder.

Right click on any tab "Open closed tab" (paraphrased, my firefox is obviously not in english ,p)


How else did you do that before the update?

"Undo Closed Tab".

Neat, I've never noticed that before, always went to the recently viewed list, which is a bit more of a pain to get to than it used to be, but that's not much of a problem with that right-click shortcut. Thanks!

And yeah, this is kinda late, but I remember an aprils fool joke on a gaming site ages ago, where the gag was that id was gonna do product placements in Quake, and we all laughed our asses off at the idea.. now John f'in Carmack works for FACEBOOK. he actually works for facebook, and now hes being sued by a shitty, greedy company of laywers that bought id software before he left.. for FACEBOOK. Jesus Christ.
'

I believe that April Fools Joke's name was Quake Live. They did the in-game advertisement thing for a short while and it was a terrible failure.

To me the most interesting thing about this story is that Zenimax claims they have signed documents giving them ownership of this. I'm looking forward to hearing more details about the content of these documents.. Deal
