What people are calling mid-refresh, would mean there is a totally new non-compatible console coming in 4 years. I'm thinking there isn't and instead it is another refresh, drop the MID part of this, this is what it is the next compatible upgrade offering.

If Scorpio hits its numbers, that is a full console upgrade in terms of performance or damn close. If I had a Bone and was up MS's nut sack as a console gamer, I'd be very excited by this. The HW today is a slug and I would want better. This is the right strategy moving forward for both MS and Sony. No reason to reinvent from scratch again. To me the gamer has to re-calibrate how this works moving forward.

LOL I haven't been all that interested in a console for a long time but if Scorpio hits those numbers I might be.

But if this is a loser idea are consoles dying then? Otherwise what do they want? A totally new console that has to reinvent everything once again with no backwards compatibility? Who wants that? Do they want continued under-performing hardware? I would think only those without the funds to upgrade would be satisfied with staying pat.

Someone tell me why they wouldn't want better or be stuck with slow hardware just to wait 5 more years with a new console then with zero compatibility? It makes sense now to do HW refreshes for the user, perhaps they just don't know it.

Xbox one was released 4 years ago. This becomes a purchase option for gamers, those that game a ton and are deep into console gaming and have funds, you would have to think this is a no-brainer for them. Better performance, done, just like we wait on the pc for better hardware reasonably priced.

News Comments > Divinity: Original Sin 2 Game Master Mode

It seems like that, here are 5 people playing one out:

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/141398805

To me it reminds me of GM mode in Vampire Redemption but surely better. It really is table top'ish with the role playing and pace part. These guys here are pro's, voices, wit, comedy. Regular Joe's won't compare in general.

You can really go off and do what you want so the GM better be sharp. How many can handle this and willing take the time to do it up to the nines?

I'm hoping you can create a module and have it play itself well enough and then a GM can jump in to add spice if they like. But so far what I'm seeing, a GM is required and it is lite on setup and heavy on improvising. Some will totally want that, others will want it more the other way.

I probably have to be the other way due to several factors of time, coordination of friends and just wanting to do more stuff per minute, then make every inch a topic of great discussion.

But I can't fault them with their choice, seems like they are doing it well.

Whatever security/vulnerabilities we have today, they are roughly the same we had before and will have in the future. They dangle this over us to have fear and quickly fix, but there is always more huge ass holes no matter which ones are closed. I simply can't be in a state of constant shock and caring. Ya's done blown it.

If all you are doing are light things, you can get an android tablet a ton cheaper than an apple, if you had to upgrade in a few years, buying the second elcheapo is still cheaper than one apple, maybe even 3 or 4. I have a nexus 7 tablet (40% less than apple comparable size), still going fine and could have gone much cheaper yet.

Or how about we have one and use it and haven't needed to upgrade it? Sorry it maybe dead for Wall Street because I won't buy one every year, but it isn't like a forgotten device at least over here. It has its place in the gadget toolbox. Again sorry that I can't make more people billionaires.

So those of us that have bandwidth caps get f'd in the end by not having a demo which could be less to download. Ooook. Here's a game I won't be buying then....

We'll find any angle to play and play it hard, even an old one like this. Circular conversation, I guess you don't play many different things if demo's are required.

I hope tons of people buy, and then refund on steam, and totally screw up their metrics for sales after this.
It will mess up their metrics system so bad that they will start using the Imperial System.


Ok I laughed at that one, it's a tough crowd here these days. I'm fairly confident this will be a fun play, that doesn't mean go out and pre-order now Johnny.

After several weeks of building and testing OTA and streaming boxes and services, yesterday we officially turned in the boxes and hooked up my own cable modem to an internet only cord cutting. Sling and direct tv now offer much of the cable experience for much less money and equipment management, and none of the additional fee charges.

Did you marry an add-on box to OTA to allow you to DVR it? If so what did you decide upon? Did you compare PS Vue to the other you mentioned?

Of the small indy devs after Grimrock, I would say Fall of the Dungeon Guardians probably did it best. They have some new things going on with UI and Combat that gives it something different.

Live Streaming TV has two issues:

1. It isn't as reliable as cable/satellite.
2. Putting everything on my Internet usage can be costly as well with caps.

OTA is viable for many, yep.

It looks almost identical to Grimrock. I like dungeon crawlers and will keep an eye on this. Hopefully it isn't just a rip-off.

Yeah there are quite a few of these now, a couple bring a little something new, but it seems too many are just a new coat of paint. There are plenty of ways to take this genre further ahead vs same thing again.

Different images on each or the same image on both, in slideshow?

I just go with different images, but not in a slideshow.
