I was using a Core 2-based PC at my office for network admin work until just 2 weeks ago. Honestly, the only thing the Core 2 machine suffered from was only having 4 GB of RAM. Now I have a Core i3 and 8 GB.

The Slashdot article on "PC Gaming is Way Too Hard" was written by a complete fucking idiot with an axe to grind. The article contains ZERO factual information.

This is awesome news, not only from a game play standpoint (I do play ATS), but just for the fact that SCS Software is actively listening to the players and willing to make big changes to improve the game.

Gun control? Oh, you mean like that "drug control" they have had around for years? Yeah, that's been great. Haven't heard of anyone getting any illegal drugs for like, what... decades now, right? When the government passes laws, everyone obeys them without question or exception, so I'm sure all the criminals out there are going to say, "Well, so much for that. Guess I'll go find a real job now."

Please, PLEASE pass more gun control laws, because I'm very excited to see the looks on your stupid fucking faces when you discover that it won't change a fucking thing, except making the problem worse. You think illegal arms dealers in the US are in demand now? You just wait. You haven't anything yet. The next civil war IS coming, and the government is going to lose.

It's a cinematic and shows zero in-game footage. Waste of internet space.

So, Minecraft has no game play then? You have seen the sales numbers for that game, right? You've heard of it, right? Thankfully, YOUR idea (opinion) of "game play" is not the same as everyone else's. Why would anyone say that "procedurally generated" implies lack of game play as if it were some kind of fact? LOL!

NMS, just like Minecraft, is about creating your OWN game play with the elements provided, rather than the typical game play mechanics of other games that rely mostly on pre-scripted events and a mostly linear story. The beauty of NMS is that it doesn't fit the typical game play "mold", and it shouldn't. After 35 years of being a gamer, I'm growing weary of the same old games being remade over and over and over again and I embrace any game that gives me an open world or universe that allows me to create a gaming experience as I see fit, rather than play yet another game that herds me down a mostly predefined path that I ultimately have little or no effect on. Even games like the Far Cry series, despite having an "open world" are still constrained by a series of story missions that have to be completed in the same sequence every time you play it.

There are "gamers" in this world that if given a blank piece of paper and told to create a drawing of something, they'd sit there staring at it like a mindless sheep, and wouldn't have any clue what to do unless someone was there to tell them exactly where to make the marks. Those are the people who are incapable of grasping what a game like No Man's Sky has to offer because they can't play a game unless something is there to hold their hand, and to tell them what their objective is, where to go to complete it, how to get there, and when to shoot. They like to THINK they are "playing" the game, but really they're just following instructions while having every little thing spoon-fed to them.

Procedurally generated game play IS a thing, and it's going to become an even BIGGER thing in the future. Some people simply don't have the level of creativity and open-mindedness to understand and appreciate a game like No Man's Sky, but fortunately, their misguided opinions will be ignored by those who do.

Using the con "proceduraly generated" as centerpiece for selling the game is a tip off that one - they don't have any real game play to offer, and two - they are looking make what they can off initial AAA full price sales before the word on the street gets out on just how little game play there is.

That and all the planets spammed with four letter names.

Procedurally generated is like playing the card game solitaire. After shuffling, the order the cards come out different every time, but there are no surprises, in that you know each card when you see it.

I actually wish they would stop updating the game because I only play single player and the updates always fuck up my mods!

Not saying the sequels will be good, but I really enjoyed Avatar. Saw it 4 times in IMAX 3D and once more when the extended version was released in IMAX 3D, so I'm excited to see what the sequels will bring.

This game has always looked boring as fuck. I have never understood the fanboy handjobbing it has received.


That's the nice thing about opinions, I guess. If you've "always" thought this game has looked boring, why the fuck are you here? Why would another headline about this game interest you one bit?

As long as we're being opinionated, I think pretty much every multiplayer shooter ever made looks boring as fuck. Every RTS ever made looks boring as fuck. (Actually, I've played many of both kinds and they are, in fact, boring as fuck.) Every sidescrolling platformer... boring as fuck. Whatever. But that's MY opinion and nobody else has to give a shit.

THIS game, on the other hand, in MY opinion, looks incredibly interesting and exciting... to ME. It matches very closely the kind of game I have had in mind whenever I've thought about what kind of space exploration game I would want if I could make it myself. This, right here. And I'll be taking the week off work to play it.

The difference between the NVIDIA and AMD is a paltry 3 fps. I'm a die-hard NVIDIA owner, but even I have to say that a 3 fps difference in early benchmarks does NOT make a news story by any stretch of the imagination. #graspingatstraws

I've been a PC gamer going on 25+ years now... how exactly is it "broken" as a gaming platform? I don't have any "software incompatibilities", nor do I have problems with device drivers. I run my PC 24/7/365 with virtually ZERO problems day in and day out. What the fuck are they even talking about? Seriously.

Free games are cool, but CONSORTIUM is an oddball if you ask me. I finished it the first time around in under 2 hours, and I found the dialog to be tedious and confusing. I'm sure I'll have another go at it, but I honestly don't see why it gets such great reviews.

Integrated CPU graphics catching up with discreet video cards? LOL Someone call the DEA and have them raid Intel's offices, because they're not just smoking crack, but it sounds like they're trying to convince others to smoke it too.

19. Re: Oculus Rift $599 Jan 6, 2016, 13:19 Porn-O-Matic
 
I've been a hard-core PC gamer for 25 years, but the Oculus doesn't excite me enough to shell out that kind of money at this point in the technology. I have a strong fear that if I were to get into VR, the experience would be such that it would make me shun all 2D gaming. I don't want to become like the spoiled assholes that have had a DK2 for months, and who constantly pollute Steam forums with crybaby tantrums whenever a game doesn't have full and flawless Oculus support from the first alpha version. No, definitely going to just watch from the sidelines for another year or so, see how this plays out.

As long as they don't slow down my connection while they are watching me, what do I care? I got nothing to hide, and definitely no internet activity of any great interest. I mean, look, I'm on Bluesnews for cryin' out loud. I'm sure my web habits would bore any government watchdog to tears.

Nothing to see here, boys. Move along.
