could be mainstream in a decade tho, once there are consoles (and mobiles) that can pump out that kind of data with no issue

Well just so happens that time is soon! Morpheus is coming out this year and they surely cant charge any more than half what the PS4 costs for a peripheral, otherwise why bother?

The PS4 has nowhere near enough power to do VR properly, so I have no idea what Sony believes Morpheus is going to do. On its own it'd probably be some shitty half-assed VR implementation with terrible graphics.

I thought it was recently reported that Morpheus is going to ship with some sort of external processing box.

Better known by its real name: A PC. So then you wind up having to buy a PS4, and a Morpheus, and a PC.

Doesn't really sound much more economical than buying a high-end PC and an Oculus.

But it would cost $150,000 to lay that extra hundred feet of cable! The cable company said so!!!

It's actually worse than that. It'll only cost 10K to hook me up but they won't do it even after I offered to foot the cost of the whole bill because that would be "unfair to market competition".

WTF?!

Ask to speak to sales. Not the bored flunky who answers the first line support desk. Usually sales would be okay with putting stuff down if you offer to foot the bill.

Hopefully it will add some more FUN stuff to do rather than just more same-old same-old missions where you need to blow up a laundry list of "red stuff."

and am starting to contemplate a return to FiOS, which will be inconvenient, since they don't offer TV in this area

If you can get FIOS, why would you need TV? :-puzzled-:

Yeah, that's waaaaaay too expensive for my taste. For that money I'd rather buy a 144hz G-Sync monitor.

Bundling an Xbone controller seems stupid, a lot of people already have one.

A director at my place of work has win 10 on his surface. Windows updates now fail. Error code says something about files being corrupted, use troubleshooter to fix it. Run troubleshooter, it says windows update files are broken, and that it has fixed it.

Reboot. Still broken. Run sfc /scannow. "We've found corrupted files but cannot repair them."

Ran a few registry fixes, tried deleting some files. Still broken. Ran two scripts straight from MS's site that supposedly completely reset and reinstall the Windows Update Environment, and both of them fail.

Long story short, time to repair (ie, essentially reinstall) or reimage. Oh well, that happens, right? Well, not really after it's only been running for two freaking weeks.

So yeah, solid OS...

Bah, I'm sad! I'm a big fan of the series (even through the hard times) and this will be the first TR I won't play shortly after release. I'm moving to Korea Feb 1st and it'll be at least a year of playing laptop nomad ...

But also like 7 trillion Gbps internet speeds!!

Nixxes does solid PC ports, so that's a positive sign. I wonder what "windows 10 support" actually means, though, seeing as how most (almost all?) games run on Windows 10.

Do they mean DX12 support?

They did a gameplay trailer. It's a top-down dual stick shooter, if I recall.

Looked bland and boring.

Ah, I missed that then, but doesn't sound like I really missed anything really.

It ships at the end of this month, and so far they've shown (afaik) zero percent gameplay?

Seems legit.

I do like the new idea of a new trilogy. One of my main complaints with the series recently is that they don't give you enough time to get really invested in the protagonist.

You don't get that sense of a passage of time and character growth that you did with Ezio.

My other complaint is the utter gutting of the modern story. They listened to the crybullies who just wanted some historical game with no modern tie in, so we ended up with under 5 minutes of modern story over the course of a 25+ hour game in games like Unity and Syndicate. In Black Flag and Rogue we at least got to control a character, but it was a faceless nameless placeholder, not anyone we could get attached to.

That "blank slate" protagonist only works when you're making fucking choices. If we're gonna be on rails, you need to give us a protagonist we can get behind just like a book or movie would.

People complained about the Desmond storyline, but honestly I've seen a lot of people backpedal on this after seeing what the series is like without it. "Well I didn't mean they should get rid of it entirely, I just wanted more choice about when I get out of the Animus!!"

I, for one, am interested in where the modern story goes next, and I don't really want to find out in 3 minute installments each year over the next fifteen years.

Yeah, I never had much of a problem with the Desmond stuff. Especially in AC3, where he actually goes on missions and you DID stuff with him, it was pretty enjoyable. I haven't seen what it's like in Unity and Syndicate, but the modern story in Black Flag was pretty pants. (Though it did have a cool reveal behind it.)

An Egypt setting would be cool, but it really baffles me why they keep refusing to do a Feudal Japan setting, despite a lot of fans having been asking for it for years.

And they really need to do something about the core gameplay, because it's just gotten stale.

there really is no way to "fix" it though

it may be possible to do some cool open world survival things with the community building stuff, but id imagine a really solid and feature complete mod for something like that is at least 3 years out, if not more...

and by then, we'll be playing Cyberpunk 2077... and just laugh, laugh, laughing at FO4

True. But will Cyberpunk 2077 allow me to build a giant lit sign underneath the Prydwen that reads "SUCK IT, BOS"?

There are 2 total quest mods and 0 environment mods. The priority in FO4 mods are bouncing boobs and even a fucking pregnancy mod, what the actual fuck.

You may want to hold off on your rant and realize the GECK hasn't been released yet for FO4. All the mods made so far have been done with TES5snip and (just released) the alpha of FO4Edit.

Neither of those two tools can do scripts. Ergo, Latin, there are no quests mods yet because the one major thing you need for quests, scripts, can't really be modded yet.
