News Comments > Steam Wishlist Changes and Lunar New Year Sale
8. Re: Steam Wishlist Changes and Lunar New Year Sale Feb 16, 2018, 01:02 HorrorScope
 
The Wishlist I hated for 30 seconds but it blows the old away. Why the filters.

Set at Sort By Review Score, Show Games Filer 50% or 75% or greater and boom. Now I'm seeing the best deals ranked by best ratings. You couldn't do that before, this is exactly what I wanted to see.

I can also Sort by price, which is all I had before if I want to look that way. But the above filter is TITS! Really happy with that.


Hmmm... Can I sort their whole catalog that way? 75% by rating?

It's been a problem since we went online and there are infinite holes, that has to be the conclusion, we've been patching ever since and no end in sight.

I remember when I got my first 3D graphics card - it was a 3DFX Voodoo Rush. It was the first card that was both 2D and 3D in one, instead of needing separate cards with a pass-through cable.

It was 3DFX's first card, the Rendition cards were there well before and competitive. Yep the Nascar games were awesome, had a 4 unit setup where friends would do an all-nighter.

Loot boxes the bane of modern America. With all the loot box emergencies we’ve at schools so far this year its good to know our government is doing all it can to keep us safe from this digital menace.

The kid was clearly mentally deranged. The firearms are NOT THE ISSUE.

2 Trucks of Prayers were sent to South Florida.

If you don't like Lootboxes and want the gov't to control/ban them. Remember you are asking gov't to step in. So don't be one of those anti-govt type if you want them to handle the loot box problem. Because no gov't would mean even more lootboxes and more devious means.

That's a nice grid to lay it all out.

540P though? That's a number born from, who the hell knows.


Laptops especially on the low to med end of the spectrum still use resolutions like 1366 vs 768. That resolution might be closer to 720p than 540p but we are forgetting about the sad state the integrated graphics are in. Factor in Interlacing also who knows.

Take a look at the benchmarks for the iGPU they recommend for 540p.

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Graphics-540.149939.0.html

Right 768 and 720, we get those. That said, there was some good posts thereafter explaining why this could be. Still odd, can't say I've seen a 540P performance option/baseline before.

Ha! This got me bouncing around related wiki pages, from The Golden Age of Arcade Video Games:

In 1982, the arcade video game industry's revenue in quarters was estimated at $8 billion surpassing the annual gross revenue of both pop music ($4 billion) and Hollywood films ($3 billion) combined that year. It also exceeded the revenues of all major sports combined at the time, earning three times the combined ticket and television revenues of Major League Baseball, basketball, and American football, as well as earning twice as much as all the casinos in Nevada combined.

Amazing, simply stunning.

Yah that is pretty amazing. I may have known some of that then, but things forgotten over time. Man they sucked quarters out of us at an alarming rate. It would be great if there was someway, game/tech combined that would make at least part of that scene comeback, just good times being social in that way.

One asking why didn't they go to NWN2? Do they have the authority to do that? It isn't like we just get to make a EE Version of any game we'd like, these are licensing deals, no?

ESO combat needs a lot of help, and I don't think Synergies is enough. I get bored out of my mind playing this game because the combat is so bad. Skills don't feel like they have any unf. Stab normal, or stab with a glowing spear. And if you blink you miss it.

Sort of my feeling, but on top of just the shock and awe, the bored out of my mind part can't be overcome in a MMO trying to keep everything perfectly even, even when it is PvE. Each fight no matter level, to similar to throughout. You can just never have that feeling where "at this point in time, I feel superior or even a weakling", nope just about the same balance between teammates and enemies. It is why I like dedicated server games the most, you can tweak and they aren't as concerned with the spreadsheet calcs being a net sum of Zero in the end. I wish there was an answer, but they are all too protective, they just want you to work that spreadsheet forever.

What I'm sort of envisioning is a MMO with ARPG loot/weapons options and probable imbalances, but in a 1rst person huge open world with a good story to boot.

They charge $10 half, but read the details. It's shit. You can't get S.C. or games live on ESPN and you have to have ESPN via another source, like cable or some other means. Just too much red tape to get through.

ummmm guys...reshade can be used to get a advantage...do your research...just saying

What do you think then about NVidia doing this at a driver level? I assume you mean advantage due to being able to change the color fidelity/effects of a game? Like someone cranking up brightness in dark areas to see better?

Never cared for 6 people parties, 4 should be max IMO.

Sacrilege! You should try Tyranny then, if you haven't already. That was arguably Obsidian's most polished game ever, on release day, and it features 4 person parties with some interesting mechanics. Overall battle complexity was lower than with their other games though. Good story, good lore, decent voice acting, it's a solid game all around, my only complaints were small parties(and thus weaker combat) and the blocking of some story areas based on game choices.

The blocking was intended to make people play multiple times, but I've yet to be back to Tyranny.

I see PoE 2 lost a player character along the way.

Reshade and Sweetfx are per game and installs into the games directory.

NVidia now has their version in beta and won't be installed in that way to my understanding.

Playing the original scenario through again coop, then moving to The Following. I can see nice improvements to the base game since my first play-through a couple years back. This has to be one of the best executed games ever. A real treat to play. For the comments above not liking it, I wonder if we are playing the same game? A mod or two can surely shore up some personal problem areas.

The only upside to a PUBG update, is that for about 30 hours afterwards the Chinese don't invade the NA and EU servers until their cheats are updated to the new versions that work with the game.

That is sort of interesting, perhaps they need a small daily patch that does just enough to mess up cheat apps, more of a daily security update. Thoughts?

Then the whine about lag, rubber banding and so on. Dude gets jobbed and they don't think it is possible. Cheater! This is as old as multiplayer gaming itself. That is the hard part of watching streams, the commentators cry lag whenever something goes wrong, seen or unseen. What I've noticed those guys usually are very average at best players.

I get the player run servers, that is my preference as well. But then I don't play games like this on avg, but I know a big draw to this game is the masses are playing it, popularity and familiarity, like WOW. And if it were just player run servers it just wouldn't have the same mass draw, esp on our own servers.

2025... Foldable will still be mentioned as this new thing coming, no really this time. Has it been a full decade of foldable promises now? It isn't like we are over here begging for foldable, it may be cool, but what has been shown is ehhh ok, so what.
