Forget the premise, that's the least of the game's problems, if that even is one.

News Comments > NVIDIA GTX 1080 Review Roundup

I don't get it why these niche high end graphics cards get so much press. Look at the Steam hardware surveys. Like 2% of Steam users actually have these super high end graphics card. The vast majority have midrange ones. I understand that these high end cards are profitable. But I wonder if midrange cards could make up for the low profitability by selling in high volume?

Anyway what I'm trying to say is who cares about a $700 card? So few people actually buy one yet everyone loses their shit when some new card is announced. I prefer the price/performance ratio as an indicator of what card to buy.

News Comments > System Shock Remastered Kickstarter Next Month
23. Re: System Shock Remastered Kickstarter Next Month May 16, 2016, 17:42 Overon
 
I only played System Shock 2. Always wanted to play System Shock 1. Even if it's ugly Unity engine game, it's still miles ahead of the original, and maybe it's a good opportunity to finally play it with the best looking version it's ever going to be. It's shame it's on Unity. I know Unity can do better, it just sucks that because it's free it's gotten a reputation for everyone and their grandmothers designing shitty cash grab and run away kind of games. The phrase "Unity with prebuilt assets" has a special dread for me.

Oh no this is being made for Xbone too? God damnit.

So does this game have any longevity like mod support? I know about the SnapMap stuff, but that doesn't seem very robust.

Does this game have the same problem that previous id games had with low resolution textures up close? Does this have the same draw in texture issues that Rage had?

Quantum Break is shit. Games for Windows Live 2.0 aka Universal Windows App is shit. You are going to need more than 27 GB to fix all that shit.

Art direction is great. But the gameplay doesn't seem to fit.

Pre-orders got beta access, including the mp and a small portion of the sp storyline. Graphically it looks good, the story seems decent, and the gameplay was easy to get into. I do have issues with a couple elements: (1) this is one of those games where each unit has different abilities, usually several of them, so in the heat of battle you have to track down an individual icon on the interface to maximize effectiveness. Can't understand why this isn't made more automatic, like being able to tell your AI captains to use torpedoes when they can (e.g. in range, right angle, etc.). (2) The damage models aren't done very well. What I saw was my smaller ships helping my larger ships engage the enemy. Next thing I know, the smaller ships explode due to enemy damage. I couldn't really even tell they were being damaged, and they just explode. No real chance to pull them back or anything. I get that life is cheap in the 40k universe, but damn, Ensign Carter should at least get a chance.
You can make some abilities automatically fire. You right click on the ability button and it will auto fire.

I hope eldar die easily.
They have little armor, so they rely on not getting hit. But if you do hit them, they do die easily.

Yeah it's a way to get continuous income while the game is still in development.

I played a bit, with player controlled Zeds, it's really really hard, even on the lowest difficulty level. This throws the balance way out of whack. Zeds definitely have the advantage in the new vs survival mode.

Well the good news at least the gov't is against spying and data collection, they'll get it straightened out.

I get the snark, however let`s stop pretending "government" is something evil and corrupted intrinsically. They`re bought by highest bidders, and who`s the biggest fish in this privacy pond?

Google nearly weekly meetings at the White House
That's called buying access, because buying influence would be illegal. As everyone knows, you need a seat at the table first (access) to get the influence second. But hey it's all legal because citizens have a right to petition their government for redress of grievances.

See this is what happens when Facebook purchased it. I guess the skeptics were right again, weren't they?
