who the hell still uses windows 7?

Uh lots of us because we give a shit about our privacy. Only idiots use Win10 willingly.


Only an idiot thinks their online pc has privacy. And you of all people telling us daily corps and govt's have us by the nuts. So in this case, you want us to believe in your fantasy-land that your pc is private and secure from them? LOL at best.

To the other guy about the Win10 Start menu being bad, it is superior to 7. My guess you just don't understand it all that well and take advantage of it and that is without any 3rd party apps, but if there was an app to improve it or other things, that is the beauty of a pc.

I'm sure it won't hurt, but there is no lack of profits at the top, there is no lack of games anywhere and budgets are high. I'm sure they will stay as equally principles no matter the tax code. The industry hasn't been dry by any stretch.

Yes, it'll hurt...people. Once again that's just GOP par-for-the-course cut taxes for the rich/big biz and make everyone else - the people who can't afford it - pay more instead. And of course I'm sure all the moronic Trump/GOP voters out there think this is a good thing as per usual.

To clarify hurt the business or not, helping the employees is another question.

What's a comparable consumer tech that ran with overpriced, underpowered enthusiast models for less than 2 years?
Things like Blu-Ray, TV's.

that shit needs time to bake properly or else you'll get another half-asses "standing VR" from oculus that was never meant to exist.

Agreed 100%. I want them take whatever time they need to get it right. VR has more potential than pretty much any other tech/gadgets that have come to PC in the past many decades, and will flourish if the experience is the kind of amazeballs experience everyone is telling their friends about.

I think we need to treat it like all other HW. You come out with the best you can and sell it. If you wait it will never happen. They have it right, they just have to keep improving on product and cost.

In regards to a quick 2nd gen... those who buy first gen are the whales/supporters. In CE they've been getting treated like that from the start. They buy first, they buy high. But CE typically comes out quickly with an improved cheaper model. I feel this needs to follow CE standards, which Valve/Facebook haven't, I think it has hurt. There are too many on the fence for V2 and if it were out, they would have grabbed them and kept the market hot. Now it is on simmer, too many waiting. That is a problem. I was holding out for V2 if the prices didn't come down, they came down and they have grabbed several like me, but still big chunk is waiting.

That's an insane deal for the Vive. Basically getting a 1070 and a $60 game for free.

Even enticing for someone like me, as I've been holding out for gen-2 headsets.. and my buddy wants me to build him a system so I could put the 1070 towards that and bill him retail cost for it, as I already have a 980ti and don't really have any need for the 1070. Tempting.

You can't beat that, it's free to you, better than tempting, a no-brainer. I to was holding out for gen-2, but when Oculus dropped to $400 I bit. It isn't like I can't get a better VR headset in the future and pass the set(s) I have now down, we are pc gamers. I will repeat myself, the vendors have dropped the ball, they aren't consumer electronic companies and they should have had gen-2 ready to go not long after gen-1's release, that is how you build a market. Gen-2 should have been a bit better and much cheaper. We should be sitting here talking about gen-3 by now.

VR is not dead as evidenced by the multitude of awesome VR titles available today...oh wait!

More great VR titles than I have time for, oh wait. Could put 1000's of hours just into the sims.

I would fucking LOVE a VR version of Cities: Skylines.

That would be cool. Google Earth VR is pretty jaw dropping. I can pretty much say any game I have, I'd love a VR true 3d version of it, because it just sucks you in all the more.

Optimized for 30FPS...roflmao.

PC Gaming quality has taken a nosedive since the very first console ports started showing up, and now it is escalating faster and faster.

Yeah if you count some AAA games being ported, I can assure you most games aren't ports at all and more games than ever are being released. Math.

BTW, here is the devs' more personal message regarding the recent development issues and the publisher announcement.
Looks like they've been going without pay for a while so WingMan & co. really needed this deal to make the game happen at all.

Good update how they explained it.

BF1 sold 23 million copies? Or am I just misinterpreting that statement?

The community grew, whatever that means. That's the wonderful thing about press releases, creative language is so much fun.

Everyone focusing on BF1, how about that BS with Madden. People get more people buying and by how many. But 50% engaged in Longshot story mode? GTFO.

I'm good with that explanation because I'm down with shorter/cheaper games anyway. Less repetitiveness and the indy scene does a good job with horror. Thanks again AAA for the little you do.

Mark my words: our games will become like the garbage freemium games on our phones, at least to some infuriating extent. Why? Because idiots believe the words, the words of the developers (and publishers ofc).

/tilt

I thought everyone was supposed to stop buying EA games about 15 years ago. Ubi around 8. Activision 5 etc. I don't look at them as conduits to my gaming nexus. Sure I may buy their games... at great discount, but again each stand on their own.

Reading the BS in this one I read: Epic Star Cards have been removed from crates but with the exception of special Epic Star Cards available through pre-order, deluxe, and starter packs. Well fuck me if a Starter Pack isn't a first cousin to Lootboxes.

EVE: Valkyrie was an un-fun turd by most accounts. A bad game is a bad game regardless of whether you're playing it on a monitor or in VR.
Huh? Valkyrie is a fantastic game. To this day it's still the best pick up & go simulator experience for the Oculus and Vive.

Good to hear, I haven't bought it due to backlog and rating is so-so. I really enjoy House of the Dying Sun. Have you tried that and how would you compare the dog-fighting?

In other words, VR remains a niche product with an unsustainable and unprofitable user base.

Listen, there are many games out there not making a profit or a profit the publisher wants. Yes, like any business you need to understand your base and don't over invest in it, unless you are going long term vision. However, smaller houses, can an do make money with it, even some of those still don't, like 2D games. There was around 150 new offerings in Steam for VR in the month of October. Yep not all will make a worthy profit.
