Not getting a dime out of me until they finish Xen, then I will be happy to pay full price.

This bullshit has gone on way too long for an unfinished re-creation, it's been over 4 years since the "mod release" (September 2012). They also have the gaul to charge money without regular updates on Xen status (which I would expect for paying for early access.), and work on / release other things besides Xen.

Finish the fucking game before you charge. Or at least post regular update status for "early access". Not gonna spend money on something that should have been completed long ago on the hope I get the rest of the game in 10 years.

Well... if they can pull off a Minority Report interface with HoloLens... that's about the only thing that would be really innovative from them in a long time.

But I'm sure it will have twice the datamining of Windows 10.

News Comments > Bethesda Holding Back Review Copies
37. Re: Bethesda Holding Back Review Copies Oct 26, 2016, 11:05 wtf_man
 
Well... this pretty much doesn't affect me. I stopped doing pre-orders or day 1 purchases a long time ago. I actually prefer mini reviews after a patch or two, although I still read the release reviews. That gives me a great perspective on whether to purchase a full price for a job well done, wait for a good sale and more patches, or pass on the game entirely.

I guess the bright side to this is that nobody can accuse Bethesda of bribing a journalist with an extra early copy if everyone can only get it 1 day in advance.

If you all read the article "The PS4 Pro is basically two PS4 chips, using one for old games and both for Pro enhancements", you would know that the extra 1GB is Actually DDR3 to keep apps tasking in the background and freeing up an extra gig of DDR5 for the games.

Also, Normal games run on 1 GPU near the same stats as the original PS4, and the Pro games will run basically on 2 GPUs. (Basically Cross-fire without the need for more GDDR5, since the unit already has 8GB)

While it's not a mind blowing leap in performance, it's an interesting way to keep backwards compatibility with current PS4 games, make newer higher res "pro" games, and keep the cost down. (without going to a new generation of console.)

What Burrito said. LXDE is closer to a WIndows Desktop.

Or you could just install the LUBUBTU Distro: Lubuntu

Personally I run Mint w/Cinnamon Desktop, but again... that's not lightweight for a Raspberry Pi.

Does anyone even want this game?

Not really... I probably enjoyed the first game more than most (On sale... patched up... low expectations after all the rants). But I don't see myself getting this one.

Heck... this is already happening in streaming.

I'm going to dump Netflix as soon as the wife is done with the current series she is watching, and pick up the Motor Trend Channel on Amazon Prime, for $5 a month.

Cut the cord in 2007... and things like this are just futher nails in the "cable / satellite tv coffin".

Not the apocalypse. That would require something to happen. It's more like they promise the apocalypse, but only manage to break a few dishes instead.

Well Played, Sir!

Microsoft-Nissan partnership TREATS cars like PCs.

Definitely a reason NOT to buy a Nissan!

(Sarcastic reference to how Microsoft has treated console gaming vs PC gaming in the last several years)

It does at least look like a new level. I was half worried they would just send you back to the same Palisade bank that you'd already been in (likely twice.)


From what I read on other sites... it's a Headquarters... not the bank. Totally separate building in old Pargue.

Mismanaged? Absolutely.

Will they pull off a decent game? Who knows.

Will I ever give them more than my original $30 backing? Nope.

Do I care if it's shit? I only care about Squadron42... if it's a decent Wing Commander-like game, I'll be satisfied.

All they have to do is start helping game devs push for DX12-only titles, that's the only reason why most people would care.

If I only used my computer for e-mail, surfing the web etc. as long as it was secure, updated, and still supported, I wouldn't want to stop using Win7.

Give me the actual benefits of a bigger FPS bump in gaming however from switching to Win10, then start actually making DX12 relevant, and it's only a matter of time before the gamers at least switch over.

Unfortunately, DX12 isn't that much of a performance boost... especially for nVidia. Vulkan seems to be the way to go, especially since it is cross-platform. (Linux (PS4), and Android)

Which means Windows 7 is still good enough.

It's a whole new "DX vs OpenGL" battle... and I think DX will lose this time.

I can't wait to see this magical MS console that not only renders every game at 4K, but also doesn't cause it's target group to have sticker shock...


...and forces some ridiculous extra hardware (like Kinect... probably a shitty MS produced VR headset), and forces a paywall to use streaming apps like Netflix, etc.

Rip off the tax payers for 75 mil, pay back 2.5. Nice work if you can get it.

You forgot all the money spent on investigation and litigation, too. So, that's probably a few million on top.

That said, you can't squeeze blood out of a turnip. Schilling is basically broke (not sure about whom "the others" are, that also have to pay), so pursuing it any further would be an even bigger waste of the taxpayer's money.

From what I can tell, these aren't just users that bought a game and left a negative review. This is a group that has banded together and goes to every video, every blog, and every forum just to slam the developer with negative messages, reviews, whatever. Basically since this developer had some kind of war with that youtube guy (sorry, don't think Jim Sterling is all that), these guys have decided to publicly attack this developer at every opportunity, sometimes using facts, sometimes just making up stuff.

I bought some game from this developer that was on sale for .99 (after playing it, I'd say it's worth a dime), some time during or after that tiff with Sterling. The forum for this game was flooded with these guys, attacking the dev and the game, despite never playing or buying it, and just making up stuff (I knew, because I had played it). Since I didn't care about the developer or Jim Sterling, these guys were pretty obnoxious.

So on one side is some kind of crazy developer that makes shovelware (or at least generic games that get tedious after 15 minutes), and on the other is some kind of gamergate-type group that attacks the developer every chance they get, sometimes making up stuff to drive away business.

Hmmm... maybe they did this on purpose, figuring to make a mint on litigation instead of "some effort" to produce shovelware.

I don't think they'll get very far.

I wouldn't say physical media is totally dead. I still buy Blu Rays of movies I want to actually own. Of course, I have zero desire to redo my collection in 4K. 1080p is already good enough to see the pot marks on the actor's faces that the makeup doesn't cover.

Eventually I'll Rip my Blu Rays and put them on a NAS, but I will never rely on a permanent stream service (like purchasing - not renting - movies on Amazon Prime). I don't want to be locked into a cloud service company for my permanent library.
