News Comments > PC Gaming Alliance Gives Up, Changes Name

Sounds like some neighborhood gaming group that tried to grow bigger than its small town roots.

Besides, since the NES, who really has thought that PC Gaming attracted more people than consoles? Sure, for a while in the mid-90's at the transition of cartridge to CD-ROM there may have been more for a while (likely due to the cultural phenomenon that was DOOM), but consoles have always been an easier entry point than computers because of their specific focus and simplified controls and attachments to large TV's instead of small monitors while promoting multiplayer much better before the internet came around, as well.

Yeah if he was talking about Games For Windows Live the booing would make sense, but in this context it doesn't

Well one could argue that without xbox/live that the GFWL platform would have been at least a hair better than it turned out.. but I guess it couldnt really have been any worse, could it?

Been using PrecisionX for a while now, but just downloaded Afterburner and will probably stick with that given the background behind Precision that I wasn't aware of before, as well as this current code-stealing fuckery.

So, just because someone claims they used the code it becomes factual? you sound like a women who just cried rape but was never raped and the guy now has to prove his innocence.

The fact is, no ones knows for sure if they did or didn't use his code. Until someone digs into the code and does a side by side comparison to prove it. Then I would suggest you not falsely accuse someone until that fact is proven.

Simmer down Ned, I said that was only one of the reasons I was switching to afterburner, and looking through the examples that the owner of rivatuner gave and what is existant in the new build of precision, it would appear that at least some of his claim is valid, as well as the previously stated fact that I learned more about afterburner and the history of both programs in the process and it is undoubtedly a better program (64bit app support, amongst other things stands out). I don't need to wait for a jury to make the switch, I've already made up my mind, thank you.

Up next, an RPG where you can only level up if you buy (individual) level-up packs...


I think they already make plenty of games like that for IOS and Android.

Comcast, at&t and pretty much any monthly-billed "service provider" have departments like this. Usually titled "customer relations" or customer retention" or something of the like. To speed up your call, ask for them immediately, but it is still none-the-less frustrating to get through..

The shittiest thing about treating people in these positions badly is that they are generally working for outsourced CS companies for $9-$10 per hour and are only graded on how many customers they can save per day, no matter what it takes. Many of them could give a shit less about who they are talking to, but they do have special plans and offers not available through regular customer service departments and if you have the patience to negotiate with them can find your monthly bill much cheaper. That these reps who deal with the most irate of a large corporation's customers are some of the worst paid usually is the worst part about this interaction, with standard cs employees usually making an average of 4-5$/hr more starting wage.

Source: I was a technology facilitator (trainer) at at&t for almost 3 years, and I got to travel to these outsourced slave-centers.

The testers were informed of this around feburary or March, and this news is almost a quarter of a year old now. During the whole time, early access "testers" were able to log into the new experimental branch from steam by selecting it from the properties like any open beta/test for a game in steam. The only new news here is that they are far enough along with it that they now actively give you a choice when launching the game to choose between the old version and the experimental branch. None of this was hidden to anyone who played the original early access release, and they have held true to their promise of providing updates on the state of development each and every Friday, sometimes more often.

If you're looking for examples of "shady developers" or "early access/kickstarter fuckery", you'll need to seek elsewhere.

News Comments > Escape Dead Island Announced
12. Re: Escape Dead Island Announced Jul 2, 2014, 05:55 Mordecai Walfish
 
I had alot of fun with the co-op in dead island with 3 of my friends. Never played any of the DLC or anything, but there were parts in the game that were very memorable playing with friends, a couple of which were very fun engine glitches and exploits that were stumbled upon that provided a certain degree of emergent gameplay in the limited "open-world" areas.

Sure it's not everyone's cup of tea, but at least it was a decent departure from regular zombie schlock. Modding mouse movement to swing the weapons with arm control instead of standard mouse1 swings was fun too, and set it apart as well.

Crap story, true.. but who in their right mind plays zombie games for the story?

Goat Simulator is pretty much "look, I made something in unity!" and is only remotely entertaining for a very short while. Maybe to people who are smoking weed 24/7 it's got longer term entertainment value.. but to me it seemed very boring. Glad I "rented" it first.

Got a fantastic burger joint named Zombie Burger that is somewhat close has great undead decor/atmosphere and some amazing burgers. Very well prepared and the toppings while unusual at times (fried egg and peanut butter on a 1/2 lb burger, for example), are really well thought out and delicious too.

The owners of Zombie Burger just opened up a new burger joint that's even closer to me called Syndicate, also. It is Syndicate/Organized Crime themed. I prefer zombie's menu more but having to only drive half as far is a nice perk, as well as the 1920's vibe to the place.

Never even seen a five guys burger joint though..

GFWL is the zombie of gaming "services" on PC now.. I think it's best for all parties involved that they put a bullet in it's head finally.


And yet here it is, still groaning "Gaaaaaaaaames"..
