I haven't seen multiple people say that, just one who might have misspoke. What else has been said?

The one person who said it (that CV1 would be higher res) was Palmer. He's a pretty good source on the matter. I ordered a DK2. My hope is that we can read text in it. It was next to impossible in DK1. I'll be impressed if they can get the price below $300 for CV1.

Looking at some of the "greenlights", I think they need to institute a "red light" program to take some of the white noise out of the list...

I've stopped looking at the New Releases tab in Steam. There's so much trash there, the good games are getting lost in the list. I figure I'll hear about the better games from here at Blues or other places on the web. It used to be that I'd click every game on that New Release tab to see what it was. Haven't done that in a while though.

$19 per plus 5% for full source code?
That's better than UDK in some ways, as you get full source code, but less good in that, with UDK, you could work for months without paying anything.

Yeah, I'm wondering if the free option is still there just to learn it. I've never even looked at it. I wouldn't mind playing with it, but not for $20 since I'll have no idea what I'm doing and won't be making anything worthwhile. I can stick with Unity for just screwing around.

For the same price you can pick up this bundle and get it along with a few other games.

I was totally about to buy this again (not that Steam would have let me) when I saw your post. Recognized the bundle and realized I had bought it already. Installing it now.

I've been stocking up on legendaries from the AH. It was really easy to sort by time left and then use the bid button. I got a tab full of them for a few thousand gold. Dunno if they'll be useful after the expansion.

I'm surprised PC is only 6% of South Park sales!!

I didn't think they counted Steam sales? I didn't read it though. Number could be a wee bit off if that's the case.

Also... Pizza Hut having fancy touch screen tables so I can get my cold pizza from a rude waiter without actually having to talk to them? Have they seen the state of most Pizza Huts lately?

I haven't seen a table in a Pizza Hut for probably 20 years. They barely have a front door around here.

Pineapple Ferguson wrote on Mar 9, 2014, 12:56:
probably the most irritating being the necessity to mash a button to pry open windows. I know I'm not the only one bitching about this, so I'll be keeping my eye open for a patch or mod that removes it. Until then, it'll wait in the back of the line.

Amen. I hate windows. And half the time you go in one, there's like 1 item, maybe 2 that you can steal. I'm also finding it a bitch to get back to the market area to upgrade my items. The map is useless. I've got a lot of money on me because I haven't found my way back.

As you said, though, atmosphere is really well done.

News Comments > Asheron's Call Future Updates "Limited"
4. Re: Asheron's Call Future Updates Mar 4, 2014, 11:54 Frijoles
 
I tried to get back in to this game a year or two (or three) ago, but just couldn't. It wasn't so much that the graphics were so outdated, but the UI. Not being able to use the mouse was a major hurdle. Can't remember if it just didn't work or if it was setup weird, but I remember being barely able to drive.

I really want AC3.

News Comments > Dishonored II at E3?

Task wrote on Mar 3, 2014, 20:26:
I'm really confused. Both are two different games. Dishonored is magical and teleporting, taking over people's minds, etc. And Thief is pure sneak (I'm talking the originals) like you are just a regular Human in a fantasy world.

I played Dishonored in a way similar to Thief. I was sneaking everywhere, trying not to kill, and using the teleport a lot. Thief has the "press space to dash across the shadow", which feels a little like the teleport. The environment also feels very similar to me.

Nonetheless, Thief ain't Dishonored. Dishonored held my attention far longer. But they do feel similar.

Yes, really enjoyed #1. I'm pretending Thief is Dishonered 1.5. Except with no jump button.

I thought they said somewhere that they were deving for PC first and then porting to consoles to try to not make that mistake again.

If it is a POS port again, I hope the community can patch it like before. I want to play, but am waiting for the PC version. Going to be hard to avoid the console spoilers for a month-ish.

Maybe the time to buy is now while the market is in shock from this.

I thought the same thing. Then I remembered that buying bitcoins with cash is a pain in the ass. Lemme do it through Paypal and I'll buy some.

The Kinect investigation combined with the UK webcam spying reveal adds up to one big "I told you so".

Followed quickly by "wtf do we do now?"

Buy a PS4.

You're getting older. Soon all maps will blur together, as will the units, due to your failing eyesight. I'm sorry I have to be the one to tell you, but you're SOL.

Glad to hear it. Been tinkering with the alpha off and on, and something just doesn't feel right. I'm not sure what it is, but it didn't pull me in as I was hoping it would. The videos they release make it look great.
