...and the Gods of PC Gaming answered to your prayers:

I guess they are playing "Aliens: Colonial Marines" and cannot be bothered. Must be some sort of redemption by masochistic torture.

On topic: Not sure what to think about his. The idea is great, but the graphics look very, VERY bland. But the gameplay does sound very interesting. I will sit and wait for your reviews before buying.

I would have been in support of this section being named "Out of the Pink" for a day!

I'd be more excited about tonights "into the pink".


You, Sir, have won the internet for today!

The Evil Wizard Zuckerbort's curse "Facebookulus", stronger even than the unforgivable Imperius curse, has turned Abrash, Binstock, and Nicholls into followers of the Dark Lord Zuckerbort. But don't give up just yet, because Gabby Neweller is coming to rescue, riding on one of the famous moving desks.

RIP Oculus

Well it will still exist, just call it "Adculus" now.

Facebookulus.

Wow, that sounds like a magic curse taken right from a Harry Potter book.

News Comments > Facebook Acquires Oculus, Oculus Rift Minecraft Cancelled

Why buy Oculus?
For the patents? To either work on some own version of FacebookGlasses in answer to GoogleGlasses? Or to hinder/prevent the development of GoogleGlasses (an other augmented reality devices) because of some violation of the now acquired patents? Or FB heard that some other big player (MS, Google, Apple...) wanted to buy Oculus and they decided to rather buy Oculus themselves even if they don't need them? Just to hinder some competitor? Or to just expand into new markets and technologies? Or/and to impress their shareholders and the Wall Street vampires to add to their shareholder value? Or to get a foot into pc/console markets? Buy Oculus, buy Steam or ActiBlizz or EA, call it FacebookGames, build consoles (or just take some of the Steam Consoles), add the Oculus, and become a big player? Who knows... But saying that buying Oculus doesn't make sense for FB is actually what doesn't make sense. There are many possibilities for Big Money Facebook. I still don't like this, but I'm just a gamer.

You...that's....shut up!

Why not? It would make sense for FB. Buy Oculus, buy Steam, and join them into a Facebook Games brand. And all of us Steam fans will have been zuckerberged.

Guys, ask the government what data they need and offer them a deal. Sell your own private data for $39.99 per year or offer the gov a $4.99 monthly subscription. YOU should get the money, it's YOUR data! So why let M$ take the profit?

Cut out the middle man, eh?


That's the idea.

The question is: does the XBone support Dx12?

From the article at the top:

Direct3D 12 works across all the Microsoft devices you care about. From phones and tablets, to laptops and desktops, and, of course, Xbox One.

Thx, SpectralMeat. I need new glasses, a DirectX-12-optimized brain, and a "Brush up your reading comprehension" course.

The question is: does the XBone support Dx12? If not, will developers (who usually aim for consoles as the lead platform) care about Dx12?

After the end of the RMAH, ActiBlizz decided to learn from Somali pirates and take your best items hostage. Pay a ransom to get them back! The new service by Blizzard: RMHS - Real Money Hostage Service! Enjoy your single player games online, where you own NOTHING, not even the items you find.

Yeah, alright, just trolling, but this "better loot drops, but they get lost on our servers" thing is kind of funny.

We don't know PCs are covered, he could very easily mean phones and tablets - and from the look of it, that seems to be the case. Anyway, $20 for nothing but vagaries and nothing to actually show except some concept art? Pass.

As Blue has already quoted: "APPRENTICE: A digital downloadable version of the game, DRM free, for either Windows, Mac or Linux." It DOES sound like a pc version. Are there Linux smartphones out there? But no Android version? See, it's pretty much sure that a pc version (and a Mac and Linux version) will be released.

They're still busy working on the Red Dead Redemption port. GTA V will come out right after that port.
