"Brenda Romero, who has been a key figure in video games throughout more than three decades of standout game design, teaching, and advocacy."

Really? And what games and tech would that be exactly?
Rolleyes

Fucking SJWs.

I don't know man,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brenda_Romero

working at Sir-Tech from 1981 to 1999 means she had a hand in almost every Wizardry game. Even with the penchant for these, admittedly niche, awards to give the old school people the hardware, those credentials sound pretty legit to me.

Didn't the first one come out just about a year ago?

By this time next year, they should be announcing the 6th game.

The first one was in August. That's 3 games, or rather, one game and two paid point releases in 6 months.

I really like DayZ. Despite what you hear it's quite playable and has been for some time, IF you know you're getting into. The game is janky and buggy as hell. The PvE component is half-baked at best. The graphics engine sucks (why didn't they just use ARMA 3?) and it's rampant with hacks. All of those things are true.

This is the thing that boggles my mind the most. These guys have made literally 10s of millions of dollars, and it seems the game has made little progress since it was released. With that amount of money, you can afford to go out and hire people to fix the problems. It's almost as if they're saying "Why bother? People keep buying it as is."

I agree it feels like nothing is happening, but that's because they nailed down the primary gameplay mechanics pretty friggin' early. The PvP has always been good, if you're into it. From that perspective, and IMNSHO DayZ is actually one of the more complete early access titles. It's not quite Kerbal level of gameplay polish early on, but the vision is clear and it's not going to change all that much. If you think that DayZ is getting a ton more features, you're bound to be disappointed by it.

I've seen a couple let's play on Youtube that make this look kind of fun, but when I go to any forum everyone is yelling about it, so I just keep waiting..

That said, if you want a PvP experience that is really unlike anything else (which is why it sells so well, btw), you might like it. It's 4 hours of boredom/running/salvaging gear topped by 5 minutes (or less) of horrifying/fun tension. Just seeing another player from a few thousand yards is enough to get my blood pumping. Screw the survival bullshit, the game is really all about the PvP.

Yeah this is weird, they have plenty of room (~50%) between a 760 and 970 for the 960 to fall into and it is basically a 760 performance wise, cooler/less power, even though the 760 was good already there.

It is cheaper than normal at $200, but only a 2 gig 128-bit memory bus, hmmm...

Maybe there is a 960ti in the future.

There is almost certainly a 960ti or (rumored) 965 coming. I thought that the 960 would be a 192-bit/3gb card for $200, which would have been a great card. I guess that will be the TI.

I think they cheaped out a little bit, but Nvidia will continue its game of strangling profits from AMD. Take a look at the die size (359mm^2 vs. 227mm^2) and memory bus (384 bit vs. 128 bit) of the 960 compared to a R9280/5 and nvidia's plan becomes clear. Design cheaper to manufacture parts that JUST barely hold their own with AMD's now, let's be honest here, fucking ancient architecture, and force them to cut prices and reducing their margins even further. It's been kinda horrifying to watch, honestly. AMD is in real trouble. Nvidia is toying with them at this point.

Honestly though, the 970 is such a great card for $330, that I just can't recommend that someone buy anything else. Anyone in the market for a card should just buy a 970.

You paid for early access to a beta product on the opening weekend and you're surprised that there are issues logging in and lag in the game.

Precious. Just precious.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I love early access games, but I'm afraid the idiots will ruin it for the reasonable people.

Never played these, how could they be denied with the pixel art graphics it looks like a throwback to Grand Theft Auto #1

The first game is a masterwork of portraying gut-wrenching violence in an 8-bit style. More than once, I was like, "how the hell did they make that exploding head look like that?" and, "yup, that guy is totally gouging that other dude's eyes out."

Many people seem to vastly overestimate the number of units that Steam is moving.

Just because Steam has become a pretty big deal for most of us, doesn't mean it's a big deal for even close to the majority of gamers. It's this typical window syndrome where people believe their limited view is somehow representative of anything when in reality it isn't at all.

Yet Steam makes ~ 1.5 billion dollars in revenue each year, and is still growing double digits. I'm not sure what number that needs to turn into before people start being impressed?

I'll be impressed when numbers don't mean a thing and everyone has equal access to the same stuff without shitty DLC puke on every gamer's plate. And.... it won't probably ever happen again as long as we run our economy using obsolete currency/trade based economic system.

o_O

O...kay.

Guys, he's talking about trading hats. If only there was a marketplace for such a thing.....

Actually, he talking about region based locking and the different prices on games depending on where you live in the world and what currency you use. So what, a uniform currency?

Yeppers. Fire&forget release right before the Xmas holidays was one of the dumbest moves in the history of game releases. Congrats to Frontier for going full retard.

they were actually very open about this decision, that they knew they shouldn't but that they wanted their fans to be able to play the game over the holidays, just like they wanted to.

i'd rather play something that has a few bugs on my holidays than have it release right after my free time evaporates. and again, if you read their newsletters, they were very forthcoming about this.

Agreed, also keep in mind we're in the the times where gamers demand things such as devs never take any time off and games reviewers have to review things correctly, or else, women get sexually assaulted, or something. What was all about again?

What's with gamers holding people involved with games to ridiculous standards?

Although a quick look at my Steam list throws up Just Cause 2, Crusader Kings 2, and Mount and Blade: Warband as 2010s games that have been real highlights for me.

At least they didn't include Gone Home.

Just Cause 2 isn't on that list? I thought I saw it... oh shit, that's an oversight.

It's finally happening, companies are making a living off of sequential kickstarters. A kickstarter only company.

How is this different than a company seeking normal investors? Sure, the investors don't get equity, but it does leave the creative control in the hands of the devs rather than the moneymen. That's what your money is buying, an uncompromised vision. That's worth paying for imo.

I wouldn't mind playing the original again with BL2-level features and graphics at all. I never did get around to playing all its DLC.

You should. Borderlands Armory of General Knoxx DLC was the pinnacle of series, imho.

Something about BL2 felt off to me. I played through it once and was done. It was such a slog, with no progression. I never felt like my character was getting more powerful as the game went on.

Taking a guess at this, but I get the feeling they are delaying because they saw DAI and saw some things that peeked their interest and feel that now they need to make some changes to make their game better.

thats "piqued", in case you want to appear literate

That's "that's" so that's that.

unless you're one of those reverse grammar nazi trolls.
