the punisher casting was fucking spot on - that dude was born for the role... like they fucking lifted him out of a comic

also really looking forward to that - daredevil was good, but way way too much emo posturing and go-getter sidekick bullshit for my tastes.. elektra was cool tho, and of course the punisher

looking forward to The Iron Fist most of all...

Yeah it's funny that in Daredevil's own show (spoiler text) I kept agreeing with Punisher and Elektra over Matt every single time. His way is fighting is so stupidly inefficient, at least with Frank and Elektra, their opponents STAY DOWN!

Iron Fist should be pretty fun. Not so sure about Luke Cage, though. He was bland as shit in Jessica Jones...

Oh boy, somebody in 2016 still rides the ol` straw horse? Somebody pinch me. It was always the get-go wisecrack for lame forum warriors but come on, it`s beyond tedious. Ask a smarter cousin, he might lend you a new toy, some sort of plastic saber to rattle here, perhaps.

Yes, yes, you make a comment like a moron, I call you on it, and then it's the old standard "oh that's like sooooo lame lulz!" Jesus Christ, are you 14?

What has Quake to do with Ubisoft? Nothing. Maybe because my comment meant to point out that people were always cheating and companies were never able to wipe it out.

I don't think they can ever completely wipe it out, no. But you could start by having the server make all the important decisions, rather than let the client do that. Because if you let the client do it, you'll have rampant cheating. Guess which way Ubisoft rolled?

But hey, you got your lil` TRUSTED CLIENT MODEL 111111!1 to jerk off to, so let`s not interrupt that bit of fun before bedtime, shall we?

Sharp little comeback there. Then again, posting retarded bullshit seems to be about all you're capable of doing, so eh.

  • ‘The Punisher’ Marvel Series Ordered By Netflix.


  • I have to admit that i'm apparently the last human on earth that hasn't watched the Daredevil series on Netflix but I WILL watch the Punisher series. I know most people didn't like the last movie (The Punisher: War Zone). But the scene where he's holding the kid in his arms and then blows the guys face completely off with a shotgun was absolutely PRICELESS. THAT, is film making at it's best.

    Watch Daredevil. The Punisher is AWESOME in DD season 2. A series like that will be the shizz.

    I gotta admit, that was a pretty awful trailer.

    Ghostbusters was a funny movie, but the characters IN the movie treated it seriously. There were still jokes, but it wasn't just a constant running laugh-gag.

    This is going to bomb hard.

    And of course, there was no cheating back in Quake days. No sir. Not at all. All honest folks and companies, back then.

    That's right son, you kick that little straw man. YOU KICK THAT LITTLE FUCKER HARD!

    What does Quake have to do with Ubisoft making the dumb-ass decision to build a multiplayer game with a TRUSTED CLIENT MODEL??

    News Comments > Quantum Break Patch
    4. Re: Quantum Break Patch Apr 30, 2016, 15:06 Creston
     
    This game and the size of this patch are both just extremely unfunny jokes.


    We are aware that some players are facing issues with the Windows 10 version of Quantum Break

    Stuttering Frame-Rate / Frame Pacing
    There was a major rounding error introduced into our refresh rate predictions on shipping.

    So it wasn't just SOME players then, was it?

    Render technique and resolution on Windows 10
    The Windows 10 version of Quantum Break uses the same reconstruction method as on Xbox One. If your resolution is set to 1080p, the game temporally reconstructs the image (except UI) from four 720p buffers rendered with 4xMSAA, just like on Xbox One. Engine assigns input geometry samples from 4xMSAA rendering into shaded clusters in order to maximize covered geometry while keeping the performance on acceptable level by reducing expensive shaded samples. When you change the resolution, the buffers used to construct the image are always 2/3rds of the set resolution, i.e. in 2560x1440 they would be 1706x960.

    o_O Wut? I don't even... wut?

    Edit: read one part of that wrong.

    Creston- They do state that this is a completely optional feature. If you don't press the "glory kill" button it won't ever happen. I think the "indicator option" is just that, but to engage a glory kill you have to press the actual button for it (or not). The way they were discussing it led me to believe that it won't be necessary to press that button to complete the game.

    That's good news. Thanks man!

    Ask Creston. We tried having an intervention once.... he tried to nuke us from orbit.

    Hey man, it's the only way to be sure.

    I can't argue about whether this feels right or wrong, as I've never climbed, but it sure does look pretty. Dang.

    However, seriously Crytek, you couldn't be bothered to actually model a body? It's just two disembodied hands?

    RACE YOUR FRIENDS! And then you see a pair of disembodied hands in a different color that you can apparently just float straight through.

    Sigh

    No. G.O.D was founded in January 1998. Daikatana, however, was originally scheduled for a xmas release in 1997 (yup... it was three years late when it released in Y2K ). The whole bitch thing was an early advertisement from 1997 so prior to the founding of G.O.D.
    You are correct that Eidos was the gig doing Daikatana.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. I don't think MW was involved in that.

    Is it really any worse than any other game out there that relies on client side data: COD, BF, etc.?

    I don't think CoD uses client side data. Not sure about BF.

    Even so, no, it's not any worse, but since it doesn't really get any worse than Trusted Client, that's not saying much.

    Uh... I'm pretty sure this is a product category which Intel has never participated in. They certainly aren't advertising headsets, of any sort of connection, on their website.

    The second sentence was a joke.

    And the "bitch" campaign was supposedly helmed by a woman advert/marketing lead, so there's that.

    Mike Wilson is a woman now? Or is this more "let's blame woman for interfering with gaming?"

    Mike Wilson was responsible. For anyone that knows Mike Wilson, this makes sense. Romero reportedly hated it, but that's reported in hindsight. Regardless, it was Wilson's idea. He most certainly is not a woman.

    Didn't Mike Wilson helm G.O.D. at the time? I didn't think Ion Storm worked for G.O.D.? I'm pretty sure it was Eidos?

    We have great plans for the future of The Division, and for these to succeed we must make sure to provide a smooth high-quality experience.

    And the way you made sure of that was to program a game where the client data was trusted? Yeah, that seems legit.

    I'm going to say that you had great plans for your wallets, and for those plans to succeed, you programmed the Division as cheaply as you possibly could.

    All we are doing is asking companies to find a way to keep their data secure while also cooperating with law enforcement in terrorism and criminal investigations.

    Oh, is that all? Maybe for your next trick, you can draft legislation that forces companies to find a way to TURN OFF THE FUCKING SUN.

    + Rock solid frame rate.
    + Lots of monsters at once.
    + Maps look nicely complicated, definitely got a nice old school Doom feel from those, especially when seen on the automap.
    + Nice hunts for secrets.

    - Glory Kills. Holy shit what a terrible fucking mechanism. Fortunately it can be turned off. (I think? I mean, if you turn the notification off, then it would stand to reason you can't actually glory kill?)
    - Visuals are pretty meh.
    - A chainsaw kill makes a monster drop tons of ammo? Wuh? You have 3 fuel cells for your chainsaw and some monsters take all 3 fuel cells. WUH? So the chainsaw is always insta-kill now??
    - "Load from checkpoint" only????
    - Movement seems too "glidey"
    - Absolutely no feedback on monsters from being hit with weapons. We had that as far back as Doom 1.
    - No feedback of any kind as to whether you're actually picking anything up or not when moving over it. It almost makes it feel as if he's playing with noclip on.

    I think one thing that could have contributed to the apartheid was the faulty controller chip that the chinese megacorp inplanted in the large majority of the augmented people. With that in place, the unaugmented would have had an easy time rounding them all up.

    I have to say it looks very good. Agreed on the terrible lip sync, but hopefully that's just for this video and not for the actual game. It seems to me like Adam is narrating the very first mission here, and things will run from there based on the capture/bring him in decision.

    One thing I didn't like was that electro-darts power, however. Taking out 3 enemies at different locations in one shot and having it count as a stun rather than a kill is just stupidly OP.

    But all I'm all, I'm extremely excited for this game.
