Anyone else moan when they showed zombies at the end of the trailer, I think this has wait for reviews written all over it.

$80 for the (buggy) game and then paying monthly fee on top. Makes EA look like the good guys.

I thought this one closed up shop, the whole run from your web browser thing just didn't grab me. They make it look like BF1942 in the trailer but it didn't play anything like that when I tried it.

PC ports heading back to consoles, I doubt they'll need to tweak much for the ME collection.

News Comments > Star Citizen "Coming Together"
2. Re: Star Citizen Apr 26, 2014, 12:38 DangerDog
 
That presentation was rushed, or so they said in their video. It still looks like they're just learning how to work with CryEngine, do they have the know-how to re-write large chunks of the game engine to meet the needs of an open world space-sim-game? What they were showing off at GDC only gave the illusion of being in space, that large planet in the background looked like a static skybox image for example.

Elite Dangerous seems to be on much better footing because they're making a custom engine suitable for the task from the ground up, I also appreciate the design going into Elite more after seeing the direction that Star Citizen is heading - cinematic effects over function (let's put annoyingly bright lights and lens flares on the frame of the cockpit and then shine them right into the player's face, because JJ Abrams did it in Star Trek so it must be cool).

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Servers Upgraded to Address Lag

Many of the lag issues being encountered were on Official EA servers hosted by DICE. Secondary issues were seen on ranked servers yes. They may have worked with the server providers in these instances to upgrade their hardware.

Pretty much this, the console gamers have been experiencing bad rubber-banding for quite some time now.

If only DICE would make special considerations when designing 64 player maps and not just up the player count from the baseline 24 player / 32 player maps. I really like the intensity of 64 player but the choke points in some game modes is beyond insanity.

Warhol works, saved in an obscure format? Probably just deluxe paint from electronic arts.

The sandboxing in crome does not provide extra security.... it's snakeoil pr bullshit... so Firefox it is.

(By the way, running a browser in a real sandbox only protects you if you RESET the sandbox after use, and when you do that, it does add to your security indeed). But you pay the price for that with whatever security holes the sandbox has. And they have holes like any other software....


I'm using Sandboxie, it seems robust enough to stop malware is there a better alternative? Granted I'm aware that if a user is dumb enough to download an .exe and run it outside the sandbox then all bets are off.

I'm sure they'll start designing PC components like Lego bricks, zero skill required to build or replace anything, no screwdriver required.

Isn't Intel surface mounting CPU's directly to motherboards in the future full stop?

That Evolve vid doesn't do much, but having read quite a bit about it, should be a kick-ass game if it delivers...

If that's the only game mode and there's no single player campaign then hopefully it's priced accordingly.

Outcast, the one they released the source to.

It'll never make it to completion but it's a nice gesture.

Still rather tired of being killed a second or two after I get behind cover.

From watching some youtube videos on the netcode issues it seems that what's really holding it back is the bandwidth limitations that microsoft employes on consoles through xbox live, if they were to increase the tick rate on the servers the bandwith requirements would go beyond what's allowed.

I'm sure server hosting services wouldn't be too happy about it either. DICE is pretty much finished with Battlefield 4, the DLC is now being made by EA LA.

There was a rumor they were going to implement a bunch of Nvidia graphic tweaks to the game, I'm surprised they're doing things like Titan "Nose Art". Features like that usually only get implemented in sequels.

the "titan" mode throwback just isn't as fun as it was in BF2142, just makes you wish they had made BF2143 as a stand alone multiplayer only game.

so far I would say the DLC map packs for BF4 have been really mediocre.

yeah, multiplayer in the crysis series released to the sounds of crickets.

It was trying a bit too hard to be battlefield in the first one and call of duty in the second and third one.
