I'm pretty certain "model" is code for "unemployed."

I always find I never use XP boosters. I can apply double XP to my next event? Great, but what if I suck in that event? Maybe I'm not feeling it.

Net result: I don't use that thing. I've gotten better about such things with most resources, but it isn't the first time I've mentioned here that I rarely use one-time use items of any type of rarity. Here, I wouldn't much care, but I still think that Destiny 2 shader thing would have been no fun for me, where I to be a Destiny player.

Having to listen to women voices and screams sure does wonders for the immersion factor for a WWII game.


Totally, guy. Running around with people using killstreaks, respawning, regenerating health, etc., I totally forget I'm sitting in my home and think I'm actually out there in France or wherever, but then there's a female and I'm like whoa, I'm actually playing a video game and not a soldier from 75 years ago.

That's no way to connect with people. You opened yourself up to the ad hominem attacks and now people are laughing at you and your opinion. Now they feel morally superior which makes the problem worse. Try small steps (one fact at a time with no insults) for small victories.


You've been here years. Always polite. We all think of you as basically a polite him. Sane off the deep end opinions with no basis in reality, brain washed by fringe and hate.

I thought we got that with the 1060-1080 series from Nvidia and that was just within the last 2 years.

While the performance leap (and low power usage) of the 1000 series was indeed a big, awesome surprise, nothing comes even close to the mind-boggling difference the first 3dfx card offered. The comparison screenshots of Tomb Raider and Mechwarrior 2 were all I needed to see to convince me I needed to save up for a 3dfx card. There wasn’t any YouTube back then, so I was unaware that it wouldn’t only LOOK better, but it’d run at a MUCH higher framerate. No one even paid attention to framerate back then, outside of “it’s unplayably slow”.

3dfx changed everything. It’s a shame they’re gone, but they held onto the Glide wrapper for too long. Nvidia’s GeForce came along with 32 bit color and support for high-poly curves in Quake 3, and it was over.

Gosh.

Lan party, playing quake.

We're all playing 320x240 or 640x480. The fast computers are hitting 15 fps.

One dude had a voodoo. 800x600 at 30 fps. With _dithering_ (never seen before. Before that every texel showed up like as if you're playing mario)

Minds exploded. There was always a group of people standing around that machine looking at it like as if it had teleported there from the future.

Nothing in computing has ever replicated that moment.

It was "holy shit!" in a pc component.

It's like country bringing F16s to WW2.

It wasn't just a proverbial game changer, it was an entirely new game.

Imagine someone dropping a GPU today that can run today's AAA titles in 8K resolution at a steady 120+ fps with free damn-near-perfect anti-aliasing, 40 bit color, and 10 bits per channel color output. And lets you run two of them together for 240 fps.
... Then 2 years later drops another GPU that lets you do the same at 16K rez. That's like what 3DFX did.

-scheherazade

Yes, but...

For me, the Holy Shit moment was Doom. We went to a Super Bowl party where a kid had Doom. I'd actually purchased it the week prior, but the 3.5" floppies I bought were corrupt and since it was from the mall I hadn't had time to go back and exchange it. But I didn't know what Doom was, I was only buying it because it had the name id on it. I had no clue what to expect. Literally entering with zero expectations.

So were most of the kids at the party. Some knew Wolfenstein. Maybe a third. The rest just knew Mario and Sonic. The kid said Doom was running around killing things. Great, so was Bionic Commando, big deal.

Yeah, it was a big deal. Jaws dropped. Minds blown. We ran around for a while just punching stuff, amazed at how cool punching stuff looked.

To date, no video game experience compares to that. None come close. Yeah, the first time I saw a 3D accelerated game it was awesome, but not that awesome. Maybe because I had a crappy S3 Virge card before going 3dfx, so there was something bridging the gap. And next steps were still cool, as I remember when Hardware T&L was a big deal, and when colored lighting was a big deal. I remember spending time just firing the blaster down a hallway in Quake 2 and watching the lighting move down the hall, or watching the flies buzz around a dead Strogg. All those were big moments, but nothing blew minds quite like Doom.

It does have James Cameron behind it. And he did make the last successful one, so maybe that'll do the trick. If it doesn't, nothing will.

On the other hand, his last movie was Avatar, which lots of people don't like.

Agreed and to expand on your point, he believes so much in Avatar that hes making 3 new ones. I get that everyone loves money but god damn, dude could make money doing anything and Avatar is his fucking passion project.

4 new ones. And people can say what they want about Avatar, but the movie made 760 million domestic, and 2 billion internationally... so obviously people were going to see it.

I personally found Avatar an enjoyable movie, and the 3D has been the only movie I've actually enjoyed in a theater. i find a lot of the hate came afterwards, when it became in vogue to hate it.

I hate when people call hate trendy. Of course, this just means you enjoyed it when it was in vogue to enjoy it. Maybe you were the one following the trends, eh?

The movie was garbage. The plot was trash. The acting was trash. The effects were great, particularly the 3D, but after 10 minutes the "wow" factor wore off and you mostly stopped noticing the 3D, and the great 3D still didn't solve the standard issues 3D has with editing cuts creating a sudden and unwelcome shift in space.

The bulk of that revenue came from the 3D spectacle, and given that 3D is old hat now, with the share of overall film results coming from 3D being less each passing year... who really thinks it has a chance at repeating those numbers?

So that Dyson electric car, will it street sweep too?

ON a more serious note, it's a shame they didn't lobby harder to have their diesel particulate capture tech to be made mandatory. How many deaths would that have avoided...

It's mandatory now in the EU though... well, for diesel cars that come out post 2017 anyway. The problem is this tech stops working at low temperatures. And in Germany, we have 50% of the year low temperatures.

On the plus side, all German car makers will be offering full electric versions of all models shortly, so there's that.

But definitely not because they want to, there is a real threat our courts make the laws this time around, cities HAVE to protect their inhabitants, and that means bans for diesel cars/trucks on certain roads are not just looming, they are coming. Especially as it seems that our elections left us with no functioning government until way into November. (Which is a good thing, obviously)


I mean, maybe 10% this, but 90% China is mandating it, and what China wants goes, because that's where cars are sold.

But maybe not German cars, China would be pretty daft to not push this advantage

Not sure what you mean.
But China has announced quotas that go in place for 2019, that X% of a company's sales in China must be electric vehicles, so every company that sells in China is rushing to build enough offerings to meet that. Given that China is their biggest market, that makes sense.

And it isn't really a Chinese advantage now, because China lags behind on their EV capabilities. Part of the concern here is that Chinese companies will steal the electric vehicle tech (and, honestly, part of China's incentive is that those same companies will focus on EVs more than Western companies and surpass them, since China clearly believes EVs are the future while the US clearly disagrees. Right now, nearly 50% of EVs are Chinese made, anyway) It may become a Chinese advantage, but for right now it's still Western, and with Western companies really mobalizing to meet the Chinese demand, they should be able to keep a lead.

I mean China should, and probably will, protect it's own demand and have it fulfilled internally. There is nothing to be gained by China by importing EV mobility from Germany.... China does import the transition vehicles (hybrids) but not EV, would be kinda hard as no German car maker actually sells a functional EV car right now. Especially not for a country the size of China where charging stations are probably non-existent in the boonies.

Plug-in hybrids count, so Volkswagen and BMW have EVs under the current requirements. Just not many.

ItBurn wrote on Sep 28, 2017, 01:04:
Their new game was badly explained, badly marketed, almost invisible and ... puzzling. How could someone think it had a chance to do good? I wouldn't want to be the person to blame for choosing/green-lighting this project.

Yeah, I was thinking about this. I'm a big SR fan, and while I'm actually not in the mood for that style of game at all, this should have been high on my radar for when I was. But it wasn't.

On one hand, the game makes perfect sense. The Volition team had basically done just SR games for a decade, so they were probably a bit burnt out. They wanted something somewhat new to stretch their creative muscles before diving into SR5. SR4 added some weird abilities, so making a game more around those abilities makes sense, and sounds fun - Saints Row with super powers? Yes, please! And, let's be honest, superheroes are all the rage now, without any real superhero open city games. On paper, I get all this.

But what came out... let's start with the name. I can see how "Agents of Mayhem" worked for them - it communicates that they're part of an organization, and they're chaotic. Great. But it's so generic. It sounds either like a generic, forgotten mid-90s game, or like one of those endless generic mobile games that rely on 1% of gamers paying 1000s a month and the rest waiting for counters to go down. It inspires nothing. Then there was the marketing, which seemed to be around "you're someone new and you have powers" rather than who the characters are or what the powers are. Or what you'd do. Or where you'd do it. Lastly, is anyone really clamoring for an open world superhero game? They were basically everywhere from 2005, with Spider-Man and Hulk games doing it, to the launch of the PS4, with the new Infamous. We haven't had one in a while, that I can remember, and the only one I know is coming up is Crackdown, which at least promises something new with a somewhat destructible city. I feel like we've done so much there you need to really bring something new and innovative to the table, and they didn't communicate well that they did.

The Hernandez CTE thing and all of the stupid politics surrounding the sport this year are definitely giving me pause. I'm not interested or receptive to social justice/personal politics in my entertainment hobbies, there are a billion other avenues for that stuff already. I get plenty of stress and "awareness" elsewhere in life, its like a constant bombardment. Football time is just supposed to be football time for me.

As we get more research about the long term health impacts (beyond injuries which were already bad enough) I find the health argument about the NFL resonates more with me.

It's literally people killing themselves out there. The NFL is spending tens of millions trying to find new helmets and equipment, like the one Luke Kuechly is wearing. That one puts pressure on the jugular to increase the blood supply in the brain to make it swell so that there's less room for it to jostle around.

Think about that for a second.

The solution, to me, is to reduce the helmet, like in rugby. Stop people from going in head first and you stop the main causes of concussions.

Blizzard didn't invent the MMO Wheel but it did refine it. Same goes for every genre. But Epic Games was putting out marketing material using the PUBG name. It is the Battle Royale "genre" which you could use FPS, MOBA, RTS, etc, but no the explicitly used PUBG in referencing their game, which is a pretty big no no among devs.

But is it a pretty big no no. Again, these aren't commercials, this is devs talking. Do you really not remember people saying they were influenced by System Shock, or Doom, or whatever game?

Game isn't even out of Early Access and it has to rip off another game. Not looking good.

I have to question your thought process. What is wrong with making a feature in your game better than the opposition? That process has been going on for eons. In the end we as players end up benefiting.

How anyone can construe that as bad.....

Fair observation.

You make game A. Game A is in Early access finally after a year or two of being pushed back since it was announced. Game A is in Early Access, so instead of putting all resources into it to get the game shipped, they are putting more resources in a game mode trying to bolster it's sales by 1) copying another games mode, and 2) literally using other games name in marketing to promote your own game.

I have no problem with 1, (except the game needs to ship first), but I do have problems with 2.

But are they? They're saying they were inspired by games like PUBG. They aren't putting out commercials saying "this is PUBG but better."

And, regardless, this isn't new. Again, in the 90s, everyone said "we loved Doom so much we wanted to make a FPS." Or "we loved XCOM so much we made a turn based game." If you go on to Kickstarter damn near every game pitch is "we loved this game and this game so we decided to combine them." How many games described themselves as spiritual successors to System Shock?

Why are you drawing a line here?

Derp. It was Slick, not CJ (Apologies, mate!):

This is a bullshit argument (most of the rest of your arguments are bullshit too).Every year in gaming is the year with the "most FPS players ever". There is room for more than 4-5 games. I don't remember only 4 Drama movies being released last year because of the "over saturation of the Drama genre in movies".

Funny that CJ coincidentally said the same thing.

Slick’s argument is flawed. Movies are a couple hours’ worth of commitment. If each person who bought this game only played for two hours, it’d fail even if a million people bought it.

Yup, I can watch a movie once and understand it really well. I can watch several movies in a day. Most people only watch a movie once.

To understand a game really well, you need hours in it. And people rarely jump between games, because it's not much fun to master multiple games at once - they play one repeatedly until they're bored of it. Games also get better with a larger player base, as there are more people to play with, shorter waits for games, and more variety of style, so people will flock to the game with the momentum.

Nowhere near as bad. But still hypocritical. But definitely not comparable, and outside of the "LOCK HER UP" chants, something of a non-issue.

Yep, it's not that this is awful. It's that it's funny.

I don't know anything about any Howard Stern stuff, is this going to be A Thing for a while?

I still go to Yahoo in the mornings as a somewhat decent news aggregator (it seems to get worse every single year, but is still better than many that I find, partially because its targeting is weaker so I see a wider variety), and there were four or five different headlines about it.

Hopefully it dies today. Nothing overly interesting (oh! he'd use a condom if he boned Princess Diana... who cares? oh! he has groped Melenia in public! any guy has groped his girlfriend in public!) and I don't see the point. "Grab them by the pussy" was a bombshell. "I am annoyed by my ex wife" isn't.
