it's going to be hard waiting it out for a deal on this game... needs to be less than $30 for a buy.

I felt the same way and finally said, "screw it", and just bought it yesterday. This thing isn't getting to $30 'till X-mas, at the very earliest (at least on Steam).

I agree with all your points here jd, buuuut he's got a point about the fan service parts, especially when it comes to Abrams. The first Star Trek was pretty good, however, Into Darkness had just that type of pandering fan service, so there's a chance it made it's way into this.

It's the dialog that's going to ruin the movie, especially the forced humor.

*rimshot*

Oh shit! I didn't tip my waitress like you told me too!

So what's the deal here? I get an endless weekend but have to play one of these games for free, and if I stop the weekend ends?

Speedrun: skipping 80% of everything the game offers. Why anyone would wish to do that is beyond me. Fastest speedrun possible: don't play the game at all...;) Or you could watch the intro and then roll the ending credits, I guess. How profound.


Speed running is a fun (for me) for 2 reasons. 1) you need to practice, a ton. 2) if you think of better way to do it, then you have to throw out everything you've been practicing and start over, and learn the new route.

Every game I've tried to speed run is one I know forwards and backwards. I played through wasteland 20 times before I began speed-running it for fun.

Author claims it was running at 60fps @ 4k, but his own screenshots of the settings show that the 4k display they are using is at a 30hz refresh rate with VSync enabled. That would not allow him to run 60fps.

The options menu looks good... lots of choices in there. We'll have to see what happens when people with more run-of-the-mill rigs get their hands on it.

You are assuming the screenshots of the settings is what he ran with. If you look at the screenshots closely you can see he is changing the settings as he is going through them (the 1st and 3rd screenshots show different memory settings than the 2nd).

So its possible that he was wrong, but its also possible he played around with the settings while going through them. We really don't know

Yes, it's possible VSync was turned off for a time. Just pointing out that there are some inconsistencies so people looking for performance information may want to wait for a more technically minded site to get their hands on the title.

Some games, Elite: Dangerous comes to mind in my experience, cap fps to 30 if Vsync is on and it drops below 60. If that's the issue, than he shouldn't even have Vsync on. Result? Inconclusive. FPS is sitting anywhere between 30 and 59. 45+ on this game should be perfectly playable.

It's kind of stupid not to make the final four a free stream on the internet. They're missing out on tons of ad revenue.

It is, has been for years.

The thing with Mad Men and also Breaking Bad if I recall is that they split the final season into two smaller seasons for various reasons. So what what started with Mad Men last night is the final episodes of the last season.

Various reasons being $$$$$$, so they can make people wait an entire year to finish the series. AMC is pretty easily the most anti-viewer network around. Too many commercial breaks and ridiculous money grubbing delay. I love mad men, but refuse to watch it live. I'll just buy it from Amazon the next day.

Just read that 6.1 introduced "Twitter integration" to WoW. Whatever people, crazy if you ask me.

There's no integrated feature in an MMO that will ever be crazier than /pizza.

Risk of rain is a steal at that price. Difficult, random, and fun. Like binding of isaac with shit controls and an utterly fantastic soundtrack.

I couldn't get into Risk of Rain. Played a bit and couldn't find the "point". Then I figured what the next step was and was insta-killed by an impossible to beat boss. Seems like I'd need to grind a sh*tload. There's something wrong with the controls, but I can't put my finger on it. Played with keyb+m. I guess if you stick to it, it might become addictive, but I was personally put off.

In my opinion, the point is Isaac-like where RNG bestows godliness upon you and you crush all before you. But yeah, grinding.

The controls are downright brick like. You feel like you're controlling a brick in flight. Needed refinement. I hope they make a 2nd one, because the base formed with this.

It's also worth noting that this game was made 100% within Gamemaker: Studio (save the soundtrack). I use it as inspiration that even without many programming skills, I too, can make a decent game.

The average Star Citizen backer has contributed $96.


WTF

$150 here. Don't regret it, will probably buy more.

For the record, Chris Roberts IS a snake-oil salesman, but his snake-oil is so damn good. I simply can't help myself. Foolish? Absolutely. Loving it? Every fucking minute.

Beware all, Cultist about. Don't take any food or drink!

LOL! Thanks guys. I knew you'd understand.

Is Alien Isolation worth a purchase? It seems most people either hate it or love it.

Depends. It's unlike any other game actually, so it's difficult to compare it to anything. Kinda like Amnesia, kinda like Deus Ex, kinda like Dead Space. You absolutely have to be able to put yourself in the mindset of someone that's totally helpless. That's the fun part.

The point being, for $12.50, it's worth a shot.

technical edit: the thing I really want to know about that game is how they made a game that looks so damn good run at 100+fps on mid-range rigs at ultra detail levels.

I'm using a 7950 and it's still running stuff perfectly fine. The real test will be witcher 3 and gta5 but I strongly suspect that it'll hold out just fine on both of those as well. I used to get a new card every other generation, but it seems right now I'll be able to get atleast another year or two out of this one.

Ram usage in games is spiking, real fast. even at 1080p. Enough so that my previous indifference to the GTX 970 RAM debacle has switched to minor annoyance. I would guess that Witcher 3 at 1080p on high settings (not even Ultra) will push be at least 3gb.

People pay to watch these people play games? Talk about a bunch of people with no life whatsoever.....kind of sad when you think of it.

"Stop liking what I don't like!"

No kidding. The International is required viewing for me. (in the DOTA2 client, at any rate) The games are interesting, the skill astounding, and the commentators get better all the time. I just hope the meta is better this year. Some real snoozers last year.

Really though, if I were 21 again, with some money to burn and armed with the total lack of fucks I give about what people think about my interests these days, I would be all about going to this thing. If I didn't have a young child now, I would definitely go.
