News Comments > Phoenix Point Gets Blood and Titanium DLC

It's definitely bland (I own it) - so I'd stay away.

Definitely doesn't have that polish like X-com 2...

It is funny when Blizzard did a great job of a story in Warcraft 3 then totally relied on the sole characters for 18 years.

I doubt it's the lack of creativity, it's the lack of corporate balls to try something different.

All we get is reforged, Wow Classic and a terrible movie.

I've been using the services since the days of Stomped.com was around. Bluesnews has always been top quality for me! I'll honestly say I do use Ad Blockers (Pi Hole) so having a patreon account would be great for me to contribute. Again like those below, I don't care for gimmiks of tiers and rewards but perhaps if you had a merch store, I'd be interested in a purchase or two

The fact is that anything can be done for a price - your old car run indefinitely if youíre willing to pay for it...

Unless of extremely good reasons, Iíd be embarrassed to work in an IT environment that still runs 7. What you do at home of course, is entirely up to the individual.

News Comments > Billion Dollar Borderlands 3

37. Re: Billion Dollar Borderlands 3 Sep 23, 2019, 17:01 Chipp0r
 
I don't get all the silly hate about which store you buy the game from, especially when developers get more from it.

I have a lot of stores, EA's origin, Uplay, Blizz launcher, Epic and Steam and I don't mind. Yes it'd be great for a unified launcher, but guess what, I have desktop shortcuts!

Platform exclusives, now I can see that being annoying as you need to buy different hardware to play the game but simply installing another launcher for free to buy/play on the same hardware is hardly worthy of the whinging I see here.

PC gamers are supposed to be gritter than console players as we've gone through the challenges of setting up a gaming system. Perhaps we've had it too easy and a return to the dos days would make people appreciate what they have.

Back on topic, I'm glad it's sold well.

Great news - Played 3, was okay but budget and story was lacking.

Hopefully a better adventure for cake-walker this time around.

Oh, I'm sure it is after that hand out of EGS money they are getting. Even though it hasn't been announced, I'm calling it now.

If this helps make the game better, then so be it. I donít care which store launches the game.

The voice acting is simply awful. Itís like they were afraid to be loud because itíd wake their dog.

Couldíve been a goofy fun title with decent voice overs... But more cringe cringe.

(Understand itís a jap title but thatís a sure way to kill sales internationally)

Totally agree. I saw the trailer and even after reading the article it doesn't sound bad. People love to whine these days though.

I'm staying away from this due to the real-time combat. Love the remake but also spirit of the old game which no doubt be a dummy button masher. Ether go fully FPS and make the combat fun or stick to the turn based system.

News Comments > NVIDIA 20XX Reviews

21. Re: NVIDIA 20XX Reviews Oct 16, 2018, 14:56 Chipp0r
 
Nvidia is moving away from rasterisation to ray/path tracing as as a natural move away from the old tricks used to present a 3d gaming image which has had deminishing returns in graphical quality for the last 8 years.

Expect this to be the start of a crossing over and further h/w, software and games move to this new method. New consoles will utilise hybrid ray/path tracing - See Sony's next gen...

Heh, in 20 years time, you'll probably have to buy an old 2080 to play 'those old games' that used the current method

Hopefully Bluesnews will still be around then to say I told you so

I assume this is because of the new EU directive on data (GDPR) as it becomes enforceable in May.

Many companies are beefing up their account options to allow better visibility of what data they collect and give users control over it.

News Comments > Windows Gaming Survey

22. Re: Windows Gaming Survey Jul 9, 2016, 07:37 Chipp0r
 
Few excerpts from my survey:
- Integrate Windws Store with Steam as there is very little reason to use it due to lack of current or back titles.
- Make the desktop more useful for gamers (and I don't mean the Xbox homepage as that doesn't work for 2k+ displays)
- Redo Windows Experience to provide a benchmark on a PC and inturn give all games a score based on on CPU, GFX, etc and thus can suggest improvements to make it run better on your PC

Please say Java is dying. I hate this software, it's the bane of my job trying to manage petty installs and version conflicts.

The sooner this drops down the toliet into computing history, the better.

Regarding GFX cards, for 2k plus gaming, a 1070 is the new standard. The 1060 will be a good upgrade card for the 750TI users to game at 1080p, hense 3GB. It is more of a budget card so it does fit.

Encouters of the Spooky Kind is a very funny and great movie. I don't think this movie will be great.. The One was an awful flick. Even crouching tiger was poor compared to 'real' chinese movies. See Jet Li in Fong Sai Yuk or The Evil Cult. Fun fun fun..
