CD Projekt RED is giving back a little of that great cred they built up recently.

No one should be surprised that a game built for 3 platforms has serious compromises. Blame Sony and Microsoft for cheaping-out on hardware, which in retrospect feels like collusion between MS and the Big S to keep specs low.

Everyone assumed the new consoles would be far more powerful. Like someone said here on this website, not rendering at 1080p for all titles simply wasn't a conversation anyone thought was possible when discussing the new console generation.

That's a mistake on CDPR's part and one they're not likely to make again, but at least an understandable one.

It's just a game and has nothing to do with the rest of the operating system. Might as well freak out at the inclusion of Solitaire. We've been testing Windows 10 at work and its perfectly fine, much better than Windows 8 in terms of accommodating all user devices with minimal compromise. The small resource footprint and requirements are great too, its a big improvement over Windows 7. Don't listen to the people who can't even bothered to load it up and just parrot whatever they hear on Slashdot.
It's not just a game. It's Microsoft including software from a company who engages in blatantly unethical, predatory practices. People don't spend money on Candy Crush because they want to, they spend money because the game is engineered down to the last bit to manipulate them into doing so.

...and those people are called idiots. Or rather, fools... and that which may they soon part with...

Windows 10 preloaded with candy crush... Sounds EXACTLY like the direction MS has been going.

Like it or not, those games are the Minesweeper of the times. Played by the exact same type of person too. Production quality is just better.

very very skeptical

They're simply setting the benchmark for cost. A roughly $300 dollar card will be required to the play the thing at any one time, off into infinity. As Horror said, this is not a surprise to anybody.

The rift will always be best utilized with a top, top, top card, or an SLI setup, the latter of which should prove to be the ideal bang for buck scenario. What could really be good, if nvidia and amd support this well with drivers, will be the $200 range GPU's in SLI/Xfire. There's real potential there for "just enough to be perfect" without blowing $600-$700 on a flagship.

current equivalent? ok i can see that, maybe

still skeptical even on these specs, running the rift today

i guess the fine print is "at low to medium settings" Winkrazz

that's absolutely the fine print as was reading this story today.

I just hope we get more games that looked as good, and ran at 120+ fps like Alien: Isolation on max settings. There's a reason why people love that game on the Rift.

Yeah thanks, how about your damn products specs?

Got to think NVidia will have it's new line come out right around these devices release. I would think many will be looking at 1070's for VR.

21601200, or 1080x1200 per eyeball, or about 2.6 million pixels total. It's a little concerning from a PPI standpoint, but they may also be using a more compact screen with different optics, so screen door is lessened. That being said, with the galaxy s6 1440p amoled screen in the wild and used in millions of devices, I'm surprised it's so low. 1440p must have been too many pixels.

does this game have a big following? how does multiplayer work? i'm assuming it's not the lone wolf hell that is bf/cod just cuz the maps are so big, so then how would a lone player have fun? i don' thave any friends that play this =(

Arma3 has a fairly large and committed fan base. There will always be people playing it. This game has a very, very long shelf life compared to most. It also has a pretty outstanding battle royale mode. Big map that shrinks as time goes on, forcing conflict. The mod community is probably the best and most robust of any shooter these days. On top of that, the ARMA III engine is far less janky than anything Bohemia has put out and the controls much better. What was once an almost impenetrable military sim, is pretty accessible these days. It's a good game. It's also got a good following on Twitch so go check it out!

Interesting Elite story. Sounds like they'll be adding some new content soon that might shake things up a bit in that world.

I liked this ancient artefact that's sitting out on the outer edges of the sol system.

I'm getting close to getting back into it myself. They just need to fill the galaxy with something. Anything really.

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.

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.
