I backed this, and have completely stopped even keeping up with what they're doing. It seems now they're basically just remaking UO, and the way they're selling houses and castles and all other kinds of shit makes Chris Roberts go "DAAAAAMN!"


Same here. Stopped reading the updates. I tried playing the demo and it was absolute crap

I really wish they had skipped this and just jumped into the overdue Volta. I've been sitting on my 3gb GTX580 forever, waiting for a card capable of 4k@60 max settings. This won't be it still. Where the fuck is Volta? >=(

Really? Wow that is a long wait. I have to say I run 4K 60fps on most games with a 1080gtx. Max settings is such a minor difference I would drop that requirement. I run a samsung 48" quantum dot HDR TV as my monitor and it is jaw dropping based on color and resolution alone. Lower some settings to get 60fps is not a big deal. IMO this 1080Ti is an amazing upgrade at that price, buy 2017 samsung HDR tv and you will never look back.

I'd say just turn anti-aliasing off. You don't need to smooth out "the jaggies" at that resolution.

Let's see if Zen and Vega are all they're promising. I'm waiting until after they're released before I make my next upgrade.

I was out walking my dog on the trail behind my house and I ran into this guy walking his dog. Started talking. He's a developer who works at CIG here in Austin. Says he's working on Star Citizen. I just smiled and said I was familiar with the company. What do you say when you meet a stranger who owes you money?

The PS4 Pro is running Skyrim SE more slowly because it's rendering at 4K. At that resolution, you can pretty much just turn off anti-aliasing. That ought to speed things up.

You probably read about the previous Titan X. This is the NEW Titan X. I'm sure it's going to confuse a lot of people, and some of them will end up buying the older card and then realize later that they made a horrible mistake.

The crowd funding for the suit begins in earnest this afternoon. At the $10, 000 tier, you will receive a digital gavel and powdered wig for your avatar!

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online and Thief Each Rated "M"
80. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online and Thief Each Rated Jan 24, 2014, 01:29 Dr_Dissent
 
With regard to Thief, I don't get the complaints. Who cares? The game is not about sex. Brothels and opium sound like they fit just fine in this world. There would probably be plenty of both. What would be weird is if they weren't there. Just because there's people having sex in the game doesn't mean you have to pause the game and go twist one off. You can just keep playing.

Not worried about nudity or cursing in Thief. I'm an adult, though, so I don't have to ask my parents if it's okay. Brothels and opium fit just fine with the pseudo fictional period and cursing is a fucking reality as well.

That's... quite the divorce settlement.

Well, she also got a number of other games, an XBox, a big-screen TV, lots of movies, everything of value from the kitchen, some furniture, and about $80,000. Every time anyone asks me if I have x, I always reply, "I used to have x..."

I loved this game. Played it all the way through and would definitely play it again. Unfortunately, my ex-wife took it in the divorce. I'll be getting it on PC for sure. Highly recommended.

Well, I've lost more money in Vegas--and the potential win here is far greater than for any bet I've made there. I have so many fond memories of Elite as a child that I feel I already owe the guy money anyway.

It never once has ceased to amaze me, exactly how into these games some people can get. The game is an economics/business simulator with a pretty graphics engine and some combat, and people treat it as if their real money is on the line.

There IS real money on the line--$15 a month and a lot of wasted time.

Although I no longer play this game, this kind of pisses me off. I can't believe they're not firing the developer caught cheating. He claimed he was "sorry"--but, if he were truly sorry, he wouldn't have waited for someone to blow the whistle. I am quite certain, however, that he's sorry he got caught.

Developers should play on a separate server. Anyone would be able to play on that server--but it would be labeled as a test server. Anything short of that is asking for people to cancel their accounts.

Please. Anyone that feels more threatened by "terrorists" than their own government obviously isn't paying attention.

Well, I don't know. My wife played this game on our XBox and she just loved it. She can't stop talking about it, actually. She keeps asking me when the NEXT one is coming out. I don't know anything about the controls on the PC version--but I can say my wife seemed more than pleased with the XBox version.

Well, this one's off my radar now. This is actually great news as I was trying to figure out how I was going to afford all the upcoming games! Thanks, Flagship, for making your game unpalatable!

I bought a DLP less than a year ago. It's extremely sharp, it's got a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, there are NO visible rainbows, it's totally quiet, it's extremely light, and it's definitely no more than two feet wide. I get complimented on the quality of the image all the time. DLP is still the current price/performance leader.
