Six months after this shit had finally died, here comes Beamdog. "Hey, lets put it back into a game we're actually selling you for money, that'll REALLY get us millions of fans."

This would be nice if Fallout 4 had more than like six different creatures in it.

Something like this with the massive monster variety of the Witcher 3 would have been awesome...

19. Laser cloak... Apr 3, 2016, 23:46 Creston
 
Sigh

David Kipping, an astronomer at Columbia University in New York, said he first considered this idea when he heard about the strangely dimming star that was detected recently by NASA's Kepler space telescope. Researchers speculated the signal could have come from an "alien megastructure" orbiting the star.

Someone please tell David Kipping:

A) To stop reading Pandora's Star, as it's obviously giving him nightmares.
B) To remember that the star in question is like a hundred million lightyears away, which means that even IF there had been any aliens there, they would have been there a hundred million years ago.
C) to get back to doing some real actual work.

SO, I've been going through my absurd Steam library backlog. Installed and played through Grow Home, was pleasantly surprised. It'll take a long afternoon to play it from start to finish, with some achievements unearned. Not a long game, but also not priced as one...it's $8 full-price. Toss it on your wishlist for when it's half that, and enjoy accidentally killing your ridiculous climbing robot over and over. Ignore the Ubisoft bit, it doesn't phone home to Uplay, and it's absolutely not like their other games.

I remember seeing that and thinking it looked pretty cool, but then promptly forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder.

News Comments > Oculus Rift Privacy Concerns
37. Re: Oculus Rift Privacy Concerns Apr 3, 2016, 23:32 Creston
 
Funny how when people raised this as a concern back when Oculus first announced they were bought by Facebook, there was this huge crowd of pooh-pooh'ers that was whitewashing it, and saying there was no need to worry, yadda yadda yadda.

Annnddd... yeah, looks like there was plenty of reason to worry. Use an Oculus Rift? We'll use our geo-locator to find your exact location, your IP address, your internet behavior, everything you have installed, and we'll share that with "third parties", by which we mean we sell it to the same advertisers that Facebook sells all your shit to.

So, yay? Sigh. It'd be nice if SOMETHING could be released in this day and age without being infected up the ass with spyware shit...

The caps are at 600gb for anyone on 12mb Internet and above, not 250.

I think the caps are dumb, but at 600gb, you're gonna be hard-pressed to use it all unless you stream 4K content every moment you're awake. It's not the disaster that article makes it out to be.

There really should be no cap, but 600GB is actually a pretty decent amount of data. Most of AT&Ts users will (hardly) (n)ever reach that. I think I'll still go over, but at least I can buy unlimited data. My big beef, of course, is that that "unlimited" data likely still is not actually unlimited.

So what's the actual benefit of making a game as a UWP versus making it as a desktop app? Other than that you can sell it on the Windows Store, which I would imagine most gamers avoid like the plague anyway?

Efforts to reach CNBC and the author of the story were not immediately successful.

You don't say...

Then again, what kind of a braindead gimp do you have to be to type an actual password you use into some random-ass article on a website anyway?

Nothing Phil Spencer says is in any way quoteworthy with regards to the PC platform.

and difficulty of the game to make it even more realistic

Bold plan for a game in which you can remote pilot an owl as if it was a drone.

My understanding is Mirror's Edge has always been about avoiding combat in favor of parkour. What specifically is lackluster for you?

Yeah but they said that about the first too, and you wound up having to take down massive amounts of guys because otherwise they'd just kill you as you tried to run past them. So I have absolutely no faith that in 2 you can bypass them.

The combat just seems stupid. Guys in swat armor getting taken down by a single kick, and the animations just seem like there's no heft to them. She looks to weigh about 110lbs and does a single kick and boom, down goes the 230lb fully armored guy. It just looks off. In a game that works so hard on making the animations right and everything, it feels terribly out of place. Why didn't they, instead of putting (apparently) poor combat in it, just give you tools to evade combat? Smoke bombs, distraction devices, a 5 second cloak (fuck it, let's go nuts).

"If we put combat evasion in, it will no longer appeal to the CoD fanbro!"

- EA suit.

If that's all in-game footage, then the city looks absolutely fantastic. Just hoping that those lackluster combat videos they've shown aren't the final way it plays...

Good. Suck it, Valve. You should have offered refunds years ago.

1.1 million per breach is retarded, but that's not going to get awarded anyway.
