News Comments > NVIDIA Flow Video
2. Re: NVIDIA Flow Video Apr 23, 2017, 15:02 Xero
 
I don't understand what the uproar is about it. Especially in the comments of even the utube video. Nvidia is showing off future tech just as they always have in the past. Yes, it takes a few years before we can actually see it in games, but it's a demonstration of what's to come. Every single Nvidia tech demo I've watched since early 2000s has come into standard gaming years later.

I still remember watching the faerie Nvidia chick sitting on a branch years ago and thought we would never have graphics like that in regular games. Now we have better graphics than even that tech demo. So yes, it goes a long way but eventually this stuff becomes standard technology in the games. This is just the base of it.

News Comments > Diablo III Necromancer Beta
3. Re: Diablo III Necromancer Beta Apr 12, 2017, 13:41 Xero
 
They had initially discussed they weren't bringing back any old classes when D3 was releasing info prior to release. Obviously they made an exception with the Barbarian and oh yeah, the Monk if you count the Hellfire expansion for Diablo1.

Now they are bringing the Necromancer. I'm not sure it all makes sense. It's just rehashing the same game play just into Diablo3.

Also, regarding more content, there isn't much more they can do at this point. Diablo is one of those guys that is fun for probably a month and then it gets boring. Or at least until you max out the new character they release and are done and bored again.

News Comments > BAFTA 2017 Winners
1. Re: BAFTA 2017 Winners Apr 6, 2017, 20:42 Xero
 
Glad to hear about, INSIDE. I just bought the game, am nearly done with it, and have to say it's one of the most interesting experiences I've ever had with a game. The ending portion will make your jaw drop in humor and like, wtf is going on here. A definite reaction from a game that had me on the edge all the way so far.

Try not to view any spoilers or help files. Everything can be done with your brain and it truly isn't worth spoiling it if you have even the slightest thought to play the game. It's an epic 3 hours worth your time.

I had a blast with Red Faction Guerrilla but not so much the one after that.

They also released a nice patch that updates it with modern bellz and whistles for updated hardware. I think that was pretty nice of them.

On a side note, this looks like sh!t.

Oh god I would love another Witcher. My life has been empty since I beat Witcher 3 and the DLCs. I had been hooked on it Since May 2016 until early February when I finally beat it. Just about playing it every day straight. What an experience. I'll never experience something like that again, for sure.

I'll support whatever CDPR decides to do, but I doubt they can ever top Witcher 3.

News Comments > Mad Catz Closed
6. Re: Mad Catz Closed Mar 31, 2017, 21:10 Xero
 
Good. I still remember buying my second N64 controller from them and the damn thing got jammed in the system. The stupid hook up end of the wire to the system broke off inside the system and I had to mail my N64 back to Nintendo for repair, rofl. Madcatz didn't do shit about it. Assholes.

You know what it was like for a hyper active 14 year old who lives off a console to not have it for almost a month? Rough.

odd... its still 2d? .... why? its like star craft 2 but shit animation.

Of course it's still going to be 2D. If they were going to invest into completely remaking the game engine, why even bother with Starcraft 2?

Starcraft 1 is still widely the top eSport game in South Korea. Basically if it ain't broke why fix it? While they make do with dealing with it the way it currently is, I'm sure eSport and fans in general of Starcraft 1 won't mind an update. This is moreso for the diehard players still at it vs the ones that have no idea about it and are just getting on board and only know Starcraft from Starcraft 2.

Oddly, while the individual units look better, the higher resolution steals the per-pixel gorgeousness of the original, making it look like a cheap Flash game. It's why I'm glad the older Mario games haven't been made over like this.

Yeah this is something I'm afraid of too but I guess it'll just depend when actually having it in front of your own screen and seeing it.

I think with all the additional effects and artwork of the units on display together, it should make it feel more than a cheap flash look in the end.

Only in America will people spend hard earned money on a game that is not yet released and continues to sap their wallets year after year without giving a physical object in return that you can hold and say, yeah, this was worth it! lol

To be fair, I know, I'm sure some rich kids in Euro have dumped $$$ on it as well.

This has to be one of the worse justification comments on Blizz's forum.

"For everyone complaining, let's think of it this way: If you like Starcraft 2 and want to see the development team continue to patch and update it so many years after its release (something that doesn't happen with most video games), you can donate $2.49. As a special thank you for your donation and dedication to SC, they will give you a FREE skin. Does that sound better?"

This response sums up why Blizzard can keep getting away with this stuff. Their customer base is truly brain dead.

This was the exact comment I was referring to. The dude is actually stating let's pretend we are DONATING to Blizzard instead? Can you please get Blizzards ballz out your mouth. This is such a fanboi type of excuse for Blizzard just taking advantage of it's ignorant, loyal fan base that will buy a turd if Blizzard sold it.

For those that act like it's OK practice and for us to just ignore it if we aren't interested, that is fine, of course I'm going to ignore buying such stupidity, but that doesn't mean I can't state my opinion for what this really is.

This is so lame and the fact that the comments on the Blizzard page show the blind devotion the Blizzard fanbois have, they substitute the reason of the costs as giving them donations to produce more content.

Do you think a billion dollar company such as Blizzard needs donations to produce additional content? gtfo. This is a cheap cash grab on the weak minded that feel paying 2.50 for a graphic change PER unit is worth it.

If your card has drivers that cause issues with a game like CS GO, it might be time to rethink what hardware you rock under the hood.

I don't know man! I think it's a refreshing change of environment for once. Bored of the typical space station/real world scenarios.

I know some like to think in DOOM your in hell, but I never felt that way. THIS looks out of it's mind whack type of hell I can imagine being like if it did exist. I'm down.

I agree with everyone that if it anything, AMD can keep Intel slightly more honest in that there is SOMEONE trying to compete. If Intel had no one, forget it, prices will go up higher than they already are for Intel.

Intel is currently like a running steam train not looking back and AMD while trying to keep up, is still not quite there yet.

I read from the reviews that it feels buggy or incomplete at times. Lack of direction of what to do. I kind of remember it that way back when I owned the original on NES, but cmon now, it was NES... and it was a damn good brawler on the NES!

They did say they were taking a few pages out of Witcher 3. However I hate to see they did this only to say, we got it too, just like witcher did! Witcher did it I felt tastefully in that when it occurred, it was awesome and felt part of the storyline. It was like Geralt was just macking it as he encountered some beauties on his way, but always keeping his eye on the main prize, lol.

That sucks that they abandoned the original plan to update the S6-S6 Edge with this as well. I believe the S6 is perfectly potent enough to handle the upgraded OS. It's a beast of a phone.

T-Mobile, Verizon Now Tied in Network Speed, Coverage

in cities

Every goddamn cell provider works "in cities". It's rural coverage and speed that matter and T-Mobile is horrendous compared to ATT/Verizon for that.

Oh, is that so? I sit here in Lawrenceburg, TN. Total bumble f*k out here. My supervisor I'm riding with his AT&T, and others are using Verizon that work at this site. Me and one other dude are on T-mobile and are the only ones with signal here. In fact my supervisor was complaining of barely having 1 4G bar the airport in TN while I had full 5 bars, 4G service.

Don't you realize, if the income is lower, your probably going to be using T-mobile, thus causing T-mobile to have better service in the areas where income is tighter. At the same time, their metro coverage is awesome. I've honestly been nothing but blown away by T-Mobile since I switched from crappy ole Sprintz.
