News Comments > The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Released
2. Re: The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Released Nov 4, 2014, 19:37 Mordecai Walfish
 
Kind of disappointed that the promised discount for existing owners of Binding of Isaac was changed to only apply towards people pre-ordering the game. I quit playing the original after the shitty flash engine completely froze up on me on my best run ever.. kind of left a sour taste in my mouth, and made me anticipate the release of Rebirth.

Guess I'm gonna wait for a steam sale, no doubt it will be in the christmas sale if not sooner.

Never heard of those PS3 issues with the game before. Plays wonderfully on PC.

The number of people playing on the friday night of release is roughly the number of folks I saw in the livestream chat, ~90.

Flopzilla.

Based on this, my assumption stands: the AMD results are an 8GB single GPU card that isn't available yet on the market (or it's a typo). The AMD results are single GPU as claimed. You get the same frame rate (and higher mins) under Mantle with a $300 290X that you get with a $600 980 GTX.

Been a huge fan of CCCP (The Combined Community Codec Pack) since I first discovered it around 2005. Combined with QT-lite to prevent having to install apple's shitty Quicktime bloatware that was used as a trojan horse for other shitty software like iTunes (don't know if they still do this..), it's become my go-to media player for windows pc's.

Such a trash article. It would take someone really friggin stupid to expect a "holo-deck type experience" from the first generation of consumer VR. This product is for people who are interested in embarking.g on the first steps towards that, not people who expect the complete holo-deck experience when we can't even get decent internet (upload speeds, at least) in most places. Dumb dumb dumb

I take it people are not looking forward to this. Looks pretty interesting to me. Pretty cool to play as a Goblin for once, the ancient creatures that lurk in the shadow and dark places of the Earth.

Apparently this is a prequel to the "Of Orcs and Men" video game.

It does look interesting. I appreciate when games break away from having the same reused hero role. Looks like they are putting a lot of thought into ways to make the orc unique, as well as including some regular conventions of the stealth genre.

So nice of arsTechnica to run a 2-page advertisement for Thrustmaster in the form of an article!

I always wanted the Warthog HOTAS ever since it was released, but the price has kept me from it. The really appealing element for me was the hall-effect sensors used in the stick. The most common part to mess up in a good (or cheap) flight stick is the potentiometers they use in them. Hall effect sensors are much more resilient and accurate, and have shown to not be nearly as failure prone as old potentiometers used in joysticks. Also, they lack the need for any "dead zone calibration" and such as they are instantly calibrated upon being plugged in, with no "dead zone" unless you artificially create one in software. I picked up a much cheaper joystick from Thrustmaster with hall-effect sensors, the t-16000m. Cheaply made plastic shell and buttons on it, but the joystick itself is excellent.

Apparantly we need 6GB of VRAM for ULTRA texture maps, which is weird but ok. A worse thing is that we need 3GB for high, 2GB for MEDIUM and 1.2GB for LOW. This is crazy.

I'd like to see comparisson videos or screenshots between ULTRA, HIGH, MEDIUM and LOW res textures because apparantly I need to set my texture maps to LOW with my normally more than capable NVIDIA GTX 680. It's absolutely crazy

In a couple years time people will only be running new games on LOW textures with 2-3gb of ram... progress and stuff =P I remember being shocked that I needed more than the 512 mb of ram on my 8800GT for high textures in GTA IV, now I expect GTAV will likely require 2-4 GB for maximum texture res on PC, 512 being bare minimum.

I've been hemming over buying the new hard drives I need as these are all full... been waiting for the next "leap" in storage space. 3-4TB drives don't really interest me, but a 10 or 20tb drive certainly would. Anyone have any inkling of when that may be a reality? I've been waiting for what seems like years at this point.

As someone else pointed out, they are just starting production of such high-capacity 3.5 inch drives, but I would not expect decently priced consumer versions until about a year from now. 20TB I would expect 1.5-2yrs after that.

Remastering games that are less than a year old seems like an odd move.. are they gonna "remaster" the pc version too?

More than likely the "remaster" just gives them the visual content the PC version has had since launch.

The 360, ps3 and PC versions all had identical graphics, just better resolution on the PC.

Steam just added music library support to control music playback from the overlay.

Very welcome feature, indeed! I hope it supports streams, trying now.

Once again, Riot dodges the real issue: Their ranking system is shit. No matter how well you do, if your team loses, your ranking score drops. You can have 100 kills and no deaths and your team can still lose, so you'll still suffer. Which means, unless you can reliably win every game with zero help from anyone, there's no reliable way to advance in solo-queue ranked play.

Helping your team as best you can in every match is the *only* reliable way to advance in solo queue, even if it means you're not always going to win.
