Lol, the purpose is to stop any modding that can occur so they can sell their DLCs later. "saving the players from the nasty cheaters" is just sugar coating.

Forgive me for failing to read the article but there IS NO ISSUE with memory on the GTX 970. It has memory in two different locations with most of it in the first and the second only activates when it is necessary.

NVidia explained everything days ago.
The problem is when it starts using that memory actively it cuts memory performance by up to 50%, and nvidia wasn't upfront about this fact so now the internet is exploding.

I like racing games but previous WRC titles looked so underwhelming I could never force myself to buy one.
There was a demo too for one of them (maybe on the console) and the handling was just plain suck.
Codemasters Grid and Dirt series was leaps and bounds ahead in physics and fun factor.
The real question is "can it even rift?"
That's going to become the defining factor of games released from next year on.

Can you travel to different systems yet via flight/warp/jump?

You're joking, right? They're too busy squeezing mo' moneh outta people by releasing more concepts of ships. No time for the actual game!

No hate comment yet ?
Something is terrible wrong !!!

There. Better now?


To seriously answer the original question: You're still kidding, right? All you can do is fart in your cockpit seat (of select single seater craft only so far... the multiplayer ship play won't be released until later this year in AC 2.0) and do some dogfighting on a few tiny maps. And you can race on a few other tiny maps.
That's it. There's not even a hint of a persistent universe or in fact *any* universe just yet...

I picked this up as part of a promotion when you buy a new GFX card. Pretty, but there's not a lot to do other than putz around a small area in your ship. I seriously don't understand how people can dump hundreds of dollars into this game buying virtual goods for a game that's not even close to being complete. I would need a massive reserve of disposable wealth before I'd even consider it.

Ok so how many tiny squares they got so far to dogfight in? They promised a 100 systems or something right? How many tiny rooms in a system? Or haven't they got a populated system yet?

Sigh is this the new COD, new release every year? Oh well I decided to opt out after bl2 anyway, but seriously these yearly releases of the same IP need to die.

Regardless of legality Ubisoft is pretty much wearing the crown of the most hated company on the internet right now. I wonder if the de-activations are worth the bad publicity ball they keep feeding.

Changed Tactical Camera so that it no longer re-centers when the player changes party members.
That's the only useful change in my play experience.

a superior experience because having the start menu look more colorful scares you.
You must be confusing fear with utter loathing and hate.

Let me expand on this, I actually don't mind the fact that they have a alternate UI built into the OS even though I dislike it intensely; what I do mind is that they have an entire extra platform for applications which can only be installed of their store (which is their wet dream of course as I mentioned before).

Windows 8/8.1 is a frankenstein abortion of a OS. They should have gone full metro on the UI front and just call it something else, but they keep thinking by forcing this crap down the desktop crowd's throat it's going to get developers onboard to create content for their mobile platforms to compete against apple and Google.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer says they are working towards making Windows 10 "the best operating system we've ever created for gamers on PCs,"

So does that mean it's going to have crappy mouse and keyboard controls and your going to be forced to use a controller? Rolleyes

News Comments > Razer Unveils OSVR Headset

1080x1920 FHD resolution with 60fps and 401ppi
You need a panel with more than 1080p if your going to give each eye a good resolution to look at, and more than a 60hz/60fps display panel to get the latency down. The suspected CV1 panel is going to be 80hz, better than the 60hz, but still lacking in terms of getting to that magical 8ms latency target where VR sickness ceases. At least they will be able to give a 1280x1080p experience per eye, the combined experience should be more than sufficient. Only that latency...

I don't know if CV1 will get it low enough to avoid VR sickness unless they employ some clever tricks. Will probably need 200hz panels to make 8ms latency a reality. It would be interesting to see if 3rd parties make "upgrade" kits for CV1 once it is released with higher hz panels as they become available.

but I imagine a future society where an abundance of riches and technology provides base needs, and people only work that wish to exceed that. But for many, many people that base level would suffice if it allowed them to pursue non-material dreams.

So... the ultimate welfare state?

Something will have to give when robotics take over a lot more tasks that people do today, plus additional tech advances. It doesn't take a lot to see that there would be a reduced need for humans in the workforce. What mentioned as a replacement "non-material dream", that does sound a bit too ideal, think 60's with even a more focused purpose, yeah we'll fuck that up. we're human. Not really sure how that is all going to play out, those in the most control of that future seem to be unsure as well.

Welfare is a negative word that we like to throw out to stir the pot, but if done for other reasons, it wouldn't have the same negative vibe it has today.

When robots and AI (eventually) create all products where would the people get the money to buy any of said products, and if it is free why would anyone make it?
