News Comments > HTC Vive Wireless Adaptor This Month
12. Re: HTC Vive Wireless Adaptor This Month Sep 5, 2017, 18:50 The Half Elf
 
Yeah but also look at the picture. It has the updated headstrap.
What HTC should have done is dropped the price 100 bucks but thrown in the updated strap for free.

So you're looking at 599, plus 99 for strap, plus another 299.

And ask mrgrosser about what happens when you turn in a lighthouse sensor. They told him it was broken and they were going to replace it. Then they told him they were waiting on a part to repair it. THEN they told him due to it being repaired in Texas they had no clue what was going to happen (and everything but the last part happened a MONTH BEFORE the hurricane).

Fucking hell this guy is a dipshit.

EVERYONE from id software has stated that Quake was just random maps thrown together. They weren't designed for multiplayer, it's just what people made and they tacked on a story.

Doom and Quake were fucking AMAZING back in the day. But they have been taken out to pasture and left to graze.

It's a good thing climate change isn't a thing...

Are you fucking serious?

Go google Hurricanes that start with I. Regardless of climate change, there have been and will be earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc. It's a matter of statistics. The longer something doesn't happen the greater chance of it happening.

Don't get me wrong I believe in climate change, but bad weather is going to happen, with or without humans on this rock.

Hmmm sorta ironic. When I worked for Lego it was in Florida, and Lego was hurting pretty badly from poor sales but finally landed the Star Wars brand and recovered nicely (just as they release the 2nd UCS Lego Mill. Falcon).
That being said, if a CAT 5 Hurricane was to ever hit while I lived in Florida I would leave/evacuate. Ya just don't fuck around with mother nature.

Holy shit, check out this game coming to GOG. Art and music is based on all those insane old cartoons from the 1930s.

Cuphead

I'm all for giving indie's their due, but there is so much half baked software coming out that it's choking the shit out of the PC Gaming market.

AAA dev's are doing Early Access (remember when it was called Beta?), charging for loot in single player games, and indies are dropping some amazing titles which in turn has given birth to the 'fuck it, it's "stylized" lets release it' level of crappy shareware of the 80's and 90's.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is on a Steam sale again for $15.00USD.

I loved HR, but I haven't pulled the trigger on MD yet. Is it worth $15.00?


YES GO NOW (even though I'm not very far through I had to restart the game like 4 times). It will be played soon to completion, but I'm currently seeing how many Blues'ers in my current X-COM game I can get killed (btw Creston I named another character for ya, and he still died first, right after Cutter).

It's been flat out stated EVEN BY ROMERO, that Quake was a bunch of levels (that were done by a bunch of people) thrown together with a "story" to make a game.

Lawbreakers needed some obvious way of differentiating itself from Overwatch, like adding vehicles.

At a EPIC games meeting ~20 years ago:

"Unreal needs some obvious way of differentiating itself from Quake, like adding vehicles"


20 years ago they were working on the original UT. They differentiated it by having a brighter color palette, over the top weapons, a wide variety of interesting maps, and more, better game modes.

The thing is, Overwatch and Lawbreakers look very similar: both are hero shooters with unique characters, the settings are near-future sci-fi, weapons look similar, etc. Even the game titles are thematically similar. It's hard to horn in on any well-established game, Blizzard games especially so.

BULLSHIT MAN!

It was all about the cows.

3. Re: The Division Free Content This Fall Aug 31, 2017, 03:45 The Half Elf
 
There was plenty of content at launch for a single player or co-op game, but this game was designed to be in the same vein as Destiny.

But there is so much more of New York that they originally showed on the map with the first reveal back at E3, that it was assumed things like the Brooklyn Bridge, etc would be added to the game and have never appeared.

Awesome, the one monitor solution is clean.
I did not notice any speakers/headphones, surely your not relying on the monitors built-in speakering.

There's an Astro A40 hanging on the left side of the desk. That's the source of the wire draped below that I need to manage better.

So where is the Rockband and VR setup?

Vs stringing your consumer base along for over a decade, suggesting that HL3 was still in the works but never once saying 'yay or nay'?

Least players are making a statement, but they would settle for an official statement.
