How are the actual ingame graphics in comparison to what we see in this trailer?

Fairly accurate, but dolled up in the usual trailer methods.

Anyone else having trouble DL'ing the patch?

Soo.... for those of you with it, how bad is the lag, where are their servers located, is there any offline version(or ability to run your own server, local or otherwise), or is it completely MMOSS?

Also, full pvp the entire time, safe zones, etc.


Obviously I have not done my Elite:Dangerous research, but their main site seems skimpy on the above details.

The lag is not noticeable (60mb/s down; 15mb/s up) for me, but it is currently a bandwidth hog, though most expect optimization will arrive at the gamma (post beta, pre launch) phase, so pretty good connection 10mb/s down 2mb/s up is something of a minimum imo.

AFAIK, servers are in NA and Ireland, England? though I might be wrong. No private/local servers, probably, and there will definitely be a offline single player mode, likely on release.

There are 4 game modes, which is nice. offline single, Single player online, private group online, and full open online (32 player instances for local maps.), but you can group with whoever you want.

EDIT: I was going to post a link for the Thrustmaster TFlight Hotas X, but I can't find one for sale. If they get back in stock, and you want to dip into the HOTAS world, it can't be beat for 50 bucks.

2B for what? 1 game? And the stupidity at MS continues unabated.

Minecraft is a endless money pit its just not 1 game its history and much more. If MS buys Mojang they essential can make the next Minecarft a exclusive xbox game if that's even a thing in the future.

And everyone who doesn't have an Xbox will just keep on playing their current version of Minecraft, and not give a shit about the exclusivity.

There is no way to make back 2 billion dollars out of a game studio. None. You couldn't even make that back if you bought Rockstar.

You think Nintendo has made 2 billion off of Mario? Microsoft is betting that Minecraft is this generation's Mario. I think they're right. The last last I've seen so many children wearing video game branded clothes and talking about video games so openly was circa 1989. Make no mistake, Minecraft is a force of nature at this point and EASILY worth 2 billion. No question.

16gb on the $199 and especially on the $299 plus version is pretty much balls stupid. Do they want me to use the freaking app store, or not? I'm guessing 1gb of ram still. Jesus, I like iphones and love my 4s, but christ guys, you have to TRY to keep me on board.

i think Samsung's Gear VR with Note 4 will be better than the Oculus Rift because it will be 1440p compared to 1080p. i just wonder if Gear VR can hook up to a computer or not...

Rift CV1 will be a minimum of 1440p. They've said so multiple times, going so far as to say "minimum" (as in, could be higher). The Note 4 version won't hit 90fps either, something they're targeting with CV1. If the Note 4 + Gear weren't so expensive, I'd consider getting one for playing around, but that's at tad high.

Have they actually said that? I expect it will be 1440p or 1600p but AFAIK the only time they've actually said that CV1 would be higher than DK2 it could just have been a slip of the mind. I haven't been keeping a close eye on things so I could easily have missed this.

I'd be really disappointed if it's 1080p given how long it's taking. Especially as I'd like a wider FoV (than DK1), which means each pixel needs to look slightly larger.

I would say that 1440p is all but confirmed. The DK2 has an honest-to-god galaxy note 3 screen that has the Samsung Logo and touch screen processor intact on it. They simply jacked it straight from the Note 3 supply chain. The note 4 has been previewed with a 1440p screen. It's a done deal.

I've seen a teardown of the DK2, it does look quite cheap. It's nice to know that CV1 should be a bit lighter at least!

The supply line for CV1 will be quite different to DK2's. For DK2 they needed a few tens of thousand screens and hunted around for a suitable deal which evidently turned out to be Samsung. I would expect CV1 would have a proper production line for a few hundred thousand displays, particularly with Facebook behind them, and this doesn't need to be Samsung. It might turn out to be whoever can manufacturer panels capable of 90hz most reliably.

True, though since Oculus is actively developing tools for Samsung VR stuff, I'd guess there's a mostly Samsung deal in place, with limited sourcing from another for backup. The Big S makes a ton of AMOLED's.

The sad thing is that I don't see 4k 6 inch screens going mainstream, 1440p is really pushing the bounds of usefulness in the smarthphone form factor, but the Rift can use all the PPI that it can get. 4k is perfect for it, but I don't see cheap 6inch 4k panels in the future.

I can see there's a concerted push for 4k gaming being a huge deal and even though I have a 1440p monitor I still prefer to game on a 1080p res screen. I'm sure I'll get there eventually with system upgrades but it's going to be several years from now just from looking at the prices of monitors that I've seen, the inexpensive 4k TV's are all 30hz at 4k.


There's a ton of money in it for GPU and monitor manufacturers, but telling people they have to go back to the dark ages of 30fps whilst spending $2000 on upgrades is a going to be a hard sell. Let's face it, right now you need 2 780ti's or 2 290x's to pull off 4k, and even then 30-50 fps is just meh. I don't expect 4k gaming to be a reality for the masses for at least 3 years when you can MAYBE get a 4k at 60hz capable GPU and monitor for like $600.

I lean towards thinking it is, but I don't care, it's pretty funny either way.

Probably staged. Still ridiculously hilarious.

News Comments > NVIDIA Steam Streaming Support
6. Re: NVIDIA Steam Streaming Support Aug 29, 2014, 08:59 Dagnamit
 
I stream games to a Bay Trail tablet running Win 8.1, over a dodgy 300mb/s dual band 802.11n connection and the only problem is with the decoding capabilities of the SoC. That only affects maybe one second a minute of gameplay. It works quite fantastically. If only there were a touch controller overlay that worked with streaming, it would be boss as all hell.

The best thing about steam streaming is that you can add non-steam games to your library (WoW, D3, etc...) and it will run in streaming mode. There's some tweaking usually, but nothing to awful. Love it.

Wow, I'm a little surprised so many people liked BL2, it put me to sleep. I couldn't even finish one character, and I had like 3 max level, loaded out guys in BL1.

Something about the gameplay was just lacking for me. Console-centric menus and inventory didn't help much either.

word up. I slogged thru BL2. I thought BL1 was far superior. There was no progression in BL2. my character only felt weaker as the game went on.

I was considering making my wife mad and buying the DK2, cause it really does look neat. But then I'd just regret not waiting another year for the superior CR.

So that's the plan now, I'll make her mad in 2015.

Follow my plan for DK2 success without making the wife mad.

Buy a DK2 now and rent it out on craigslist half the time. people need to check and see if it's their thing (motion sickness, PC upgrades...), but don't want to pay $350 to check. $40 for 3 days, $60 for a week. recoup the whole cost in 2-3 months. only rent to people over 21, and require a refundable $350 deposit. Boom.

I know you're cynical man, but has CDP ever done us wrong on their games? Faith, it's not needed in this case.

No, they're awesome, but I WANT it to look this good and play this good, so that's why I'm hoping this isn't just trailer fud.

It's fluff in the fact that I will never be able to run the game at the settings that they are being run in the trailer.

Yea, well, don't go killing yourself. Cowards way out and I am more pissed than sad.

Sounds like he was suffering from severe depression. Not sure how much free will you have in cases like that. It's not like his life sucked or anything, or he was diagnosed with a terminal illness that I'd heard of.

he fell off the wagon really hard after 20 years sober. Probably thought there was no way in hell he'd get that monkey off his back. THIS SUCKS.
