That's not entirely accurate Phasenoise (and if it is you can point me at the proper information, that would be great).

Violet is a spectral color with it's own wavelength. Purple is not. Many reference charts incorrectly refer to Violet as purple.

Purple is a combination of specific red and blue wavelengths. There is no such thing as a monochromatic light source that can produce "purple light". The spectrum goes from Blue -> Indigo -> Violet -> UV.

I suppose I could have been more accurate than simply saying "it's not a color".

This is so much more interesting than anything to do with this article. /derail /woohoo

I stand corrected, you're right. I was guilty of doing the automatic purple->violet translation.

It actually is more interesting than bickering about star citizen.

I think he's going all Nietzsche and suggesting that "color" as a concept exists in our human mind, and since humans can only detect discrete RGB, then all color that isn't R xor G xor B is a pure product of our mind.

Distinction being physical reality vs human/perceived reality.

-scheherazade

Color can be any wavelength. Things that aren't strictly R G and B are realities, and are most certainly not pure products of some human mind. Also, we don't perceive strict RGB. We have three cone types, but they are not aligned at pure R G and B, more like B G and Y.

The only thing that is related to us is what label we assign to different wavelengths.

Although now I've heard that sometimes Blue light will demand to self-identify as Orange. At least in California.

Actually the sky is purple

Let's go full derail mode... purple isn't actually a real color (monochromatic wavelength)! It only exists in your mind as the overlap between the blue and red spectrums.

Purple is every bit as "real" a color as any other. All wavelengths are by definition monochromatic as they describe a single color. And "purple" is a wavelength a touch larger than violet, a little over 400nm.

I think you're confusing the properties light itself with the additive color model used to reproduce a rainbow from fixed-color primaries.

Most of the games are crappy little minimum wage job simulators too, involving some idiotic little tedium to do daily.

As it says, there isn't even really a winning, or defeating some cool system. There's just outspending or outgrinding other people.

How is this possibly fun?

If ads were like print ads, nobody would care. But when they run active content, animations flashing spinning leaping they slow things down, are distracting and compromise security. So OF COURSE people look to remove them. It's a natural response to an irritation or threat.

Advertisers shot themselves in the ass, and good luck getting the genie back in the bottle.

They're doing the sensory overload game I see.

Make a game with tons of stupid distractions and obstructions to being able to see the enemy. Hands waving, text in the middle of the screen telling you what you already know you just did, constant blathering from yourself and other players giving no useful information, everything has to have a halo/flash/splash.

To compensate after everyone complains, add giant bright icons overlaid on top of the screen where all friends and enemies are.
Now you can't see ANY artwork, and the whole screen is lens flares, flashing words, big rectangles. Visibility is reduced to an absurd low where now you just aim at the center of red rectangles.

It's competing with itself for visibility, and losing.

Games run at 1080p* 60fps** for sure!

* - Rendered internally at 900x600 and upscaled.
** - 60fps interlaced, and with no enemies on screen.

Wtf? I bought the deluxe edition and I see now that it didn't include any forthcoming DLC. Fucking EA, man.

Yes, the deluxe DA:I is sadly a shockingly bad value, even among an already dubious crowd of Deluxe Editions.

Maybe DX12 will have some amazing magic in place that would just allow you to parallel boost performance like that, but this bit does not seem to indicate so: Lots of the optimization work for the spreading of workloads is left to the developers.

I really don't think this will wind up having much, if any, effect at all.

I'm willing to bet you are correct. I don't see this as a significant market anywhere near worth what the engineering cost to make it workable in a given title would entail.

Like you say, if DX12 fully abstracted all GPU resources and the dev was completely unaware of the cards perhaps. But that seems the opposite of the "closer to the metal" approach touted. The quote you used does indicate where the expected effort lies.

It's already a massive pain to get a title working on all the normal single GPU cards out there, harder still to get it working well in SLI/CF, and sweet jesus save us all if we have to support Any/Any.

A toolkit is a great sign. This invariably means they can't nickle and dime with shitty horse armor DLC, and expansion will be actual expansions of content.

I think it might be great for high end competitive play. I liked watching the recent Twitch stream of their best players going at it.

But man, the cost seems nuts. I'd chance a game where there's a very good chance of me being curbstomped every game for 20 maybe 40 bucks. 60 is just way out of line, then the DLC carrot really sours me even more. Christ, for 60 bucks, toss in another pokemon.
