We Americans think of Canada as our 51st state, so it's easy to forget that you have a separate currency.

Speak for yourself, friend. I consider Canada as our natural resource production area. Puerto Rico gets the 51st state designation.

When were done with the one wall, that is only half the boarders... a wall Canadian's can pay for is next.

News Comments > Divinity: Original Sin 2 Trailer
11. Re: Divinity: Original Sin 2 Trailer Aug 29, 2017, 02:37 HorrorScope
 
This is easily the best isometric fantasy engine ever built. From looks to performance to features.

EE is quite a bit better than original, but EE with the Epic Encounters mod, which is a major overhaul to the game and adds 25 hours of gameplay at the end, is just primo. I'm playing it now getting ready for 2, it is just better. Combat AI improved and more of a challenge. CC knocked down a lot and not as cheesy, some QoL features baked in as well. 45 new spells, hundreds of new items, a lot more loot overall, Bard and Lucky skills add to the game. With the mod, it is like the Definitive version to me.

Even when the automated revolution hits civilization and most jobs are eliminated. There's still going to be a demand for human-made things. It's just that it won't be near enough to sustain an capitalistic economy.

When a team of robots can go mine resources, transport those resources, refine them into goods, and even go make and assemble things like homes and buildings all without ever being assembled by human hands. There is still going to be a demand for things of a non-critical nature, like art, or furniture or food experiences. Remember that episode of DS9 where they go to Earth and we meet Sisko's dad. He was a creole chef. He didn't do it because he got paid, he did it because he loved making food. There are still going to be people like that who want to do shit even though a machine could do it better. We already have a market for rustic hand-crafted items. People will still go out and learn shit and advance science even though they're not fighting for some high paying job anymore. There just simply won't be as many because a lot of people are just in it for the money. People will finally do shit because they actually, truly, want to do it, which is going to eliminate a LOT of problems and corruption. How many shitty decisions are made every day simply because people are trying to protect their jobs because they don't want to end up in a homeless shelter? So many problems just go away when your livelihood is not dependent on having a job to put food on the table and have a roof over your head and having your basic needs met.


Sounds good, that is why Basic Income is discussed. But the one caveat to this is hacking. Everything would simply be susceptible to this now and a lot of it high speed equipment. The thing is, they'll be attacking from the start, it isn't like we just get to "end game" and then the hacking starts. So their devious tricks they do early on, when it is easier and more impressionable, will shape gov't and their willingness to pursue.

California will tax anything that moves! I finally had to leave that tax happy state(cow farts come to mind).

Well there is logic here from CA's pov. They are getting tax money on employment and if there are less and less employees, who pays for all this stuff?

In my opinion these games are getting better and better. For me, Obsidian and inXile are doing a good job and keep getting better at it.

Man your stealing my game.

Yes, instead of always pissing on everything. Be thankful the genre is now vibrant again AND that everyone is improving as they go along. Sure we had a dead age, sure we had to take a step back, but instead of being a miserable fuck, embrace the good in it. And same with Divinity, wanted nothing of EA this time around.

Obviously 3 VR games most VR gamers would be interested in. I knew they weren't at least coming direct to the Rift. Chances are they'll be a hack for it, but maybe not because of the lawsuit. Ya gotta think Skyrim is just a matter of time before it heads to the PC.

Wish games would make the teleport movement in VR an option for those of us with stomachs iron enough to handle normal movement. I was all excited to get Obduction VR, until I started playing. I actually prefer the normal version because of having to blink forward everywhere in VR.

VR is incredibly immersive until you start using the touch controller to throw your feet forward...

100% yes. They can have the tele, but they need the full movement as well to. They have to understand that yes a new person may not be able to handle it, or some never will, but many of us have or will overcome it and we don't want to be short changed. I've played enough full motion now that I'm not having issue, but perhaps there is one out there. Typically use a drummer stool to play games with motion controllers. Other games I'm not in the room-scale world and the wozziness is even less.

You'd think with 17 of these under their belts, they could get the release date down.

Oh joy, another version of a game being redone. So, now its the Definitive version, 5 years from now it will be the Super HD definitive version, another 5 years after that it will be the Super Duper 4K HD definitive version.

So when does all the rehashing stop and the new versions start to come out? Literally M$ and their gaming department are some of the most lazy fucks I have ever seen.

Oh, and on top of that lets make it a Win 10 exclusive for a game that was essentially brought out for Windows XP. Great going M$, you never cease to maze us with your low down stupidity and greed.

If people look forward to and buy it, why does it have to stop? The market speaks. If no one buys it MS loses money, who cares?

What's the difference between the Windows Store, Origin, the Epic Launcher, and Uplay? Nothing, just none of them are Steam.

There's a difference and this is from a guy that uses all those other without an issue and likes win10. Store... it's going to be a while before I ever dive into it. Beyond just basicly being crappy, it is all about the UWP, that is their path to the walled garden that can change pc's forever or better known as the Tim Sweeney warning, with forward by Gabe Newell. If you buy there, you are supporting and working towards that goal and most likely you don't want that goal, ever.

Some of the crappy:
Always have to be on the latest version to use it. - I like to control my updates and am conservative here.

The first time you do it, it will probably trick you and all of a sudden when you start windows you are now logging into with an email/password. That's a sour taste. Yeah you can google to see how to undo that. But you never wanted it to begin with.

It is clunky AF.

Nobody, but nobody comes close to CDPR in game support--it's not even close, CDProjekt is so far ahead. As is well known, they support their games years into the future,

I think Blizzard surpasses them, just saying...
And I think you are high, just saying...,,,,,,,,,,

High and correct. Diablo 2 was updated in 2016. Granted they have the years in and the money to do this.

VR needs some serious help as it appears to be catching on as well as 3D TV.

My hope is for Mircrosofts AR; make work and play more productive and fun without having to be blinded worse than a horse.

Is it?

Seems to have had a nice bump this summer so far.

AR, not that I won't be interested to seeing what it does for games, I actually see non-games being more useful. But why would I want my home/office surroundings to always be the center point, where game objects project on to them? When I can have a whole unique world created for the same objects to play in? I just don't get that one.

As for Hurl, ehhh.

On a financial perspective it doesn't really seem to make much sense as there really won't be a tremendous amount of income derived from this.

Been at the top of the charts the past couple weeks. So there is a market out there that wants an improved cheaper edition.

They are hyping this game and releasing alongside the titans of Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport, and on paper, they appear to have the advantage.

Is GT and Forza coming to non-Window Store pc's?

Piss poor job at marketing, and 29 new games on steam, per day.

Yep and Yep.

And to add the series has been trending down and they don't have coop now, love it when you lose features. Is this Electronic Arts?
