I guess its for people who don't have a gaming PC but want to pay for a premium service? I don't know, it seems weird.

It's too get in on the ground floor. game streaming is certainly the future (for the casual fan, at least) when bandwidth and networking technology can handle it. It will never be a great solution for excessively twitch games, but for RPG's? RTS? Adventure? perfectly acceptable. Get a product there and try to get the market share for when it's feasible.

They didn't announce it today so it's over. It would seem Valve is out of games development entirely now.

...except for the whole continuing very active support on 3 of the most popular PC multi-player games on the planet.

Anyone know if there any PvE only servers in H1Z1, i.e. no pvp kills? Just wondering dayz made the same mistake.

PvP is kind of the whole point of games like DayZ and H1Z1. It's the human interaction that creates the unique/bizarre situations that make these games memorable. Take that away and you're left with a really boring game because the zombies don't really pose a threat and are background noise more than anything else.

word. these games are best played on the busiest server possible.

i must be the only one who doesn't really want HL3, it was a great game for its time, but where I played through HL at least five times, I played through HL2 twice and haven't gone back since. I guess I'm just not feeling the hype.

That fact that it was forever ago is the reason why I'm excited. If they've been planning to release HL3 this whole time, they must have gone back to the drawing board half a dozen times. "What kind of game will it be?" is the biggest question, and it's why I'm pumped.

Another TV strapped to your face and using a clumsy controller is not VR. When people start jacking in a la Snowcrash/Neuromancer, etc. then it'll be VR.

Whatevs, this pales compared to the announcement of Half-Life 3 this coming Tuesday at GDC.

The third day, or the third month at three PM Valve will be announcing it finally. So it is written! So shall it be!

HTC has three letters, so HALF LIFE 3!

C is the third letter of the alphabet in the third position in "HTC", so HALF LIFE 3!!

Steam VR. 5 letters - 2 letters = 3, so HALF LIFE 3!!!

There are three signs above pointing to Half Life 3, so HALF LIFE 3!!!

You missed the best one,

Half-Life Three Confirmed

Other than the six or more months of beta testing and the first six months of WoW just after release... no other game has given me so many hours of enjoyment. Between the PS3 and the PC version I must have between five and six hundred hours of play. And I almost hate myself for it but I'm even thinking about buying the PS4 version just because I love the game so much.

I just hope that Bloodbourne is as good as the previous three Souls games. If so I am thinking about reducing my purchases for the remainder of this year. I've bought so many games on Steam which mostly go unplayed after I sample them and quickly get bored with them. After you've played a game with this type of atmosphere and tension it is hard to find other games that can compete with it.

I'm just waiting to hear something concrete about the PS4 and PC releases. I would hope they would offer a cheap PS4 upgrade if you insert your PS3 disc and a free upgrade if you already own it and the DLC on the PC. So far I'm not hearing what I want to...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=cg3vnui8OyQ

To rip-off another internet poster, I will say that I bounced off the first Dark Souls so hard it left a me shaped hole in the wall behind my computer chair. I've tried to play it half a dozen times and found myself flinging the controller aside in a rage. The controls just feel broken to me.

I really want to like these games, because I LIKE bashing my head against difficulty and atmosphere is my serious jam. Is Dark Souls II any less... broken feeling or am I going to hate it as much as the first one?

Does anyone know if the XBone could support hardware upgrades? Seems to me like with the API you could sell an upgraded Xbone or an upgrade kit with out changing out the primary SoC that's already being sold. Shift the costs of upgraded games to devs, who need to code the support into the game, who can then turn around and charge $80.00 for the HD version.

This game is a ludicrous value, worth 10x its $15.00 price tag already. I have 80 hours in this sucker and I havenít even touched half of the playable characters. Adding more to it is just awesome.

Cataclysm was superb, my favorite Homeworld episode in fact. I still have the original disk, but here's to hoping we get a rerelease.

I never played it (even while loving the original), but everyone speaks so highly of it. Hope this gets found and updated with an HD release.

And I'm waiting for Homeworld: Mists of Pandaria.

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

Fucking SJWs.

I don't know man,

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.

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.

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."
