Is he wrong? Actually it would be some contingents of NATO countries as well. The only difference really would be that Vietnam won their independence and victory, the Afghani groups are still fighting for theirs.

No, but it doesn't mean we need to be reminded of it every time something like this comes up. It's like if someone made a Britain-In-India/Old World Empire joke every time something about India/WW1 came around. It gets old. It is old. Time for a new meme. Maybe that the U.S. is being run by the Lorax or something, I dunno. There's plenty out there. This 'Murica shit is so...2000's.

Currently, it's...72, clear skies. I hate it. I know I'm in a very small minority but I'd love to be in that snow right now! Living in FL messes with your mind. You start thinking that this kind of weather is normal. It's not. It's 72 now, but we're also under a Frost Warning for tomorrow morning, with a low of 36. But our highs for the next four days will be at or near 80. In February. We're not in Denver, when one day could be 80 and the next have a half-a-foot of snow on the ground. This winter, for us, has been dry and warm and this summer, if winter is anything to go by, is going to be absolutely brutal. So if any of you like this kind of thing, then by all means, come on down! But me? The first chance I get to go north, I'm taking it and never coming back...

This is an indication of the conference's death throes.
They tried to cut down even the industry associates because of the nuclear escalation of "Hey we have the best stripper booth babes"
They tried to close it to a smaller audience to get back to their roots
Now this?

Besides there is nothing ever fresh and new to discover or preview at this conference anymore. Gone are the days when you could sit down to play a little game called Katamari Damacy that nobody heard of until it blew up a month later worldwide.

Matches much of what I've suspected about it.

I don't think they could get back to their roots or anything like that as things have changed. The internet is far more effective at reaching the audience, without any of those costs or hassle.

The companies which can afford it, sometimes going around the world to get there, won't be making some unheard of supposedly risky game. I doubt the conference will make the kind of money it expects with anything but big publishers and maybe certain studios and in those cases you can find out more about the game online.

Making an extra $270,000+ for welcoming the public back, I'm pretty sure it's more about the number than the act and hassle it involves.

Hmmm, I remember hearing the same conversation when they had E3 in Atlanta that one year. 'It's all over!' Yeah, not quite. Man, what a clusterfuck that was! They need to try it again, though, this time with some proper oversight and use their fucking brains. I would love to go to an E3. It's been on my 'Bucket List' since '96. Of course, the one year they go to the East Coast was the one year I was drowning in...well, let's just say I was 18 and having too much fun to bother...

Yes, granted, it's not EVE uh, EVE but it's still the same universe, made by the same company and most of what was said still applies to both.

If the beta's any indication, 1440p is not stable at all, even with top end hardware. I was playing smoothly at 40-60 FPS at 1080p with an FX-6350 and a GTX 970, myself.

Not sure what your issues were, but I didn't run into any. I'm running on GTX 1080 FTW on a 4K 28" monitor 2840 x 2160 had an average of 38 to 42 FPS.

Had the graphics at maximum, with vsync turned off on game, but turned on in the control panel. I thought that wasn't bad considering there are no optimized drivers out yet for the game.

Other Then that I had a really great time playing the game Coop. Ran into a few small bugs but nothing ground breaking.

Drive was a bit of a challenge at the start, but we eventually got the hang of it. but yes, that definitely needs some work. Hopefully that will get fixed. No issues with gun play, in fact I thought the gun play was very similar to The Division.

I bought the Gold Edition, I really liked what I saw and played. The open world was pretty impressive looking. Cant wait to see the rest of the game.

Surprised You pre-ordered?! SHUN THE HERETIC!!! Bat

What <smack> have <smack> we <smack> said <smack> about <smack> pre-ordering?! <smack> Slap

.. and when star citizen adds an FPS module to make a more immersive universe, everbody lines up to shout them down.

I realize that statement is somewhat of a trap (and you were being sarcastic) but to be fair, EVE is a finished game, with long-since-refined mechanics of a fully-fledged game. It's not a glorified tech demo. When you play in EVE (as mundane as it might feel to some) it's still a full game. When you play Star Citizen, you're not getting into even 10% of what was supposed to be the 'full' game. So when RSI wants to go on a another fishing safari because they're bored with doing the actual game they promised five years ago...yeah, people are gonna get a little pissed.

Project Cars isn't too bad with a controller but it is a ton more fun with the wheel. After some practice you can push the cars to the limits much better with the wheel than with the controller. Much smoother for steering also. It is however a pain in the ass to set it up and tear it down if you don't have a dedicated wheel stand.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds fun, wish I had room for that. I would love a wheel and pedal setup, but I already use 1/2 my 'LAN PC' second desk for my previously mentioned flight setup and it really just sees use when I play Sturmovik games and very rarely some others. I think my better half would frown on the purchase, but honestly the desk space is a big concern with my setups at this point too. Sad

I can see your dilemma. Racing online is a big commitment. I've been doing it since the advent of it, Papyrus' experimental 'Hawaii' service that was just Nascar Racing (the original) on hosted servers back 25 years ago. In those years, I've gone from a CH Yoke (which is a really good as a wheel if you didn't have the money for a Thrustmaster), Logi Wingman Formula Force, Logi Momo and now a Logi G25. I was on iRacing almost continuously until June, when I lost access to a decent broadband connection (I'm on satellite now, which is death by latency in racing sims). Now I'm regulated to a NascarRacing 2003 install, heavily modded and Nascar 15, along with Project Cars, GTR2, GRID and all the others. Basically anything with an AI. But I've also gotten into Elite Dangerous lately and it actually plays rather well on my horrid connection. I don't know what magic Braben is concocting in his lab but it's working. Now I need a HOTAS. I still have my LWFF which I've been meaning to sell but the last OS it supports is WinXP. I've never been able to find drivers for it for Win7. So no one is going to want it, otherwise I'd be willing to sell it in order to get one of those new Thrustmaster T-160000M sticks...

I honestly though 343 did a great job with Halo 5, and especially as they are just updating and droping DLC for free, buy game get tones of content. Sure the campaign was a little short, but it was pretty good (not the best, but v good none the less).

My only regret is that unlike other microsoft series, they have not put it out on windows 10 (gears 4 is on windows 10, as is forza horizon etc) and they are all exceptionally good ports.


Speaking of HALO5, one of the questions about the ending kinda just popped into my head and I came to a realization. At the very end of the 'Legendary' ending, you see a Halo power up and you hear Cortana humming. At least you assume it's Cortana. Why would she power up a Halo? (one the UNSC hasn't found yet, apparently) Speculation at the time of release was that she would use the HALO's as a way to keep the humans and other species in line, since she controlled all AI's and their allegiances were with her. (Well, most of them, anyway. Roland on the Infinity and monitor 031 EXUBERANT WITNESS on Genesis not withstanding) But it just occured to me that she can't use the HALO's! If she does, she cuts off access to the Domain, and thus her power to cure AI's of rampancy (including her, if it's not permanent). So, again, why was she on the HALO and what is she doing?

I have my own theory. The Cortana we saw in HALO5 wasn't the Cortana we know. I say she's been split into two (or more) different pieces of herself. And the other Cortana, the one we know, is on that HALO. Maybe she doesn't have any memory about why she's there. I dunno. But I have a strong feeling that they're going to go with this kind of thing, Cortana against herself. Let it be said that I still don't approve of this direction in the story. I think it's rather stupid actually. Cortana as the antagonist should have never been an option. They totally made her 'death' a non-issue within like ten minutes of HALO5 and everyone in the game just kinda acted like they knew it was going to happen and weren't shocked at all (well, except maybe for Roland). Then the story they advertised for months (YEARS!) was a total smokescreen and didn't show up at all in the game itself. Nice when you lie to your customers. Where was all the vitriol when that happened? NMS does it and it's the end of the fucking world, 343 does it to an established brand and everyone just goes, 'Meh'. There should have been some backlash. The 'grand' fight between Locke and Chief is a fucking CUTSCENE! They didn't even bother to quick-time it! Fuck me!

I could go on, but what's the point? I'm talking to myself. Would be nice to know what they're doing for HALO6. About that time, I would say, yes?

*sigh*

343 has totally sucked out all the fun in the HALO universe. As one of the biggest HALO fans from the very beginning (when it was a MAC exclusive!), it's just gone into territory that I can't (and don't want) to follow. While they claim they have the next decade of HALO planned out (as in the next three games), it doesn't seem like there's any innovation in that plan. Much like Bungie with Destiny. And speaking of which, Bungie needs to get off the Destiny teat and go back to it's baby. HALO needs a 'Reach' style infusion of life...

EDIT: Wait, wait, wait. I finally was just able to see the trailer (in all it's 144p glory). So you're telling me, 343, that the 'Spirit of Fire', which started it's way back home in the 2530's after destroying a Forerunner Shield World (and using it's drive in the process, thus no quick journey home) somehow ends up outside the galaxy at The Ark?! The Ark, that thing that Cortana and Master Chief (along with the Arbiter) nearly destroyed in HALO3 after going through a portal opened from a gateway at Earth? So, out of the whole galaxy, you went back to The Ark? WTF, 343?!

News Comments > Fallout 4 High-Resolution Textures
8. Re: Out of the Blue Feb 6, 2017, 22:30 Rigs
 
I so wish I could try these out but it ain't gonna happen any time soon. Aside from that fact that I couldn't download it to begin with, my SSD is only 40gb (Intel X-25). In addition, I still sport my long-suffering HD7850/1gb, which could only dream of being able to handle this. Not that I wouldn't try anyway. Fallout4 was a big project, something I almost finished last year before I got burnt out on it. One of the reasons was because it reminded me so much of Skyrim and Fallout3 (not doubt because of the same engine) and I'd just got done playing through New Vegas and before that had gotten through 60% of Skyrim LE.

Still, it would be nice to see Fallout4 in all it's glory. When I was deep into it, my daughter came around and promptly said, 'Daddy, that looks like shit.'. She was right, it did, but it was the only way to keep a smooth framerate. When I explained this, she kinda just rolled her eyes and said, 'then what's the point'? She's a PS3 pro so not seeing the game in 'all it's glory' is something she's not accustomed to. I've been so used to it, as a PC gamer, for so long, I'd forgotten that not everyone has to deal with it. I wonder if they'll bring these textures to the PS4 Pro and Xbox Project Scorpio versions?

Well, ok, not that annoying, but bad enough. I'm sure they can't pull off any heroics and last minute awe like my darling Giants can. You never count the Giants out when it's all on the line, they'll blow your mind. The Pats? Meh, not so much.

To be fair, I'm not all that interested in the SB this year as I get ready for Speedweeks and the Daytona 500 (which is to say, 'our' Super Bowl) but I have to say...daaaaaamn! Quick! Someone deflate some balls (instead of egos)!

Was semi curious about this. Sadly missed the beta chance for a key.

The 3 I posted earlier are probably still valid. It's got potential, if they fix the framerate while driving and making the controls a bit sharper (there's possibly some sort of mouse smoothing).

Nope, I tried them before I checked my email for mine. All used. I did send him one through the board email contact, though. Hopefully he checks his mail. If not, I still have three available if anyone wants to try it for the next two days...
