Valve On Why Half-Life- Alyx Needed To Be In VR - Game Informer.

Because they wanted to keep the amount of customers to an absolute minimum??

Well... there are definitely some of us that couldn't care less about VR. For me it is about as desirable as 3D TVs / 3D Movies / 3D Blu Rays, which was zilch, as well. It appears to be a hugely "niche market" for a game to exclusively cater to.

Valve just keeps on burnin' that Steam Money, though... ....and they have plenty to burn.

As for the article trying to give hope there will be a HL-3 or Episode3... that train left the station a loooooong time ago. Gabe gets his Big Macs from Steam, now.

I don't know about this. If a developer is claiming they don't think this will run on a PS4 or Xbox One... they probably really over-bloated the engine. I mean, you can only get a limited amount of eye candy from an isometric view. What I mean by that is the camera is usually so far away from the objects that maybe only a 4k screen would one be able to notice the difference. If it runs like crap on current consoles an 1080p... they fscked up, IMO.

So, basically, we could have kept the windows 7 interface (No Metro, No missing Start menu on Win8, No Live tiles) all along and just got the under the hood improvements.

Then again, I don't consider all the telemtery / phoning home / spying / forced broken updates an improvement.

I bet there's way more support this way than pennies for clicking on ads.

Of course, only a rock solid established site like this could go this route.

Cheers to my fellow Blues supporters!

I'll definitely be pledging the pay-pal gold.

Very happy to finally have the option to support this site via another method.

Just want to say, for me, my ad blocker / script blocker is not so much for the ads, as it is the tracking. I absolutely despise marketers monetizing my info without my permission, so I do all I can to thwart that.

EDIT: I'll be doing this as soon as I get home... I don't have my PP account info on me.

Hopefully the controls aren't wonky like the original.

If they put it on GOG, I'll pick it up.

Well, they are a small company, so for them to do R&D, engineering, and manufacturing of a privacy focused phone isn't cheap.

The first wave has already shipped, but doesn't have all the features fully implemented, and the is a waiting list, with several other shipping waves in between.

That's what I meant by the "tech will be mature" by the time I need to replace my phone. I still have a good 2-3 years left on my current iPhone and I only replace my phone every 5 years or so.

That said, Pinephone (a base linux phone.. can run UBports (Ubuntu Touch), Plasma Mobile, Phosh, SailfishOS, LuneOS, etc.) is a cheaper alternative. I may go that route, when the consumer version is available. (Current Braveheart that just shipped is a Developer phone)

I don't load apps (usually being more spyware) on my phone other than ad blockers and Multi-factor Authentication apps for work. Fortunately, the Librem 5 has the blockers buit-in, and MFA authentication can be done via text instead of an app.

Why do people supporting this corp?

Because some of us rather be spied on by "this corp" than Google due to how the company makes it's money (which isn't by slurping your info). Fsck Google.

That said... my next phone will be a Librem 5 when my current phone needs to be replaced. Librem 5 tech will be mature by then.

How does your bank 'pressure' you into selling your shares? Maybe things are different in Sweden?

Only thing I can think of would be some sort of debt owed to he bank and they wanted their money?

Prez wrote on Feb 13, 2020, 11:06:
Also, this seems wrong:

According to Swedish law, the punishment equates to the to the profit generated through the crime, which is said to be more than $70,000.

It seems the punishment should amount to more than just giving back exactly what you stole.

They are talking about 2 different people... one that appears to have gotten off scott free.. the other one was convicted. I think the one that was convicted was the only person that had to pay the $70k. He got "probation"... so it looks like the Fine is more of it being "restitution and probation" than a fine and jail time.

That's the way I'm reading that.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about... Cliffy has been a complete out-of-touch-dumb-ass since his initial Console vs. PC claims nearly 15+ years ago.

You know what's funny? He makes John Romero look like a AAA game developer, and all that guy ever did that was significant,is make some levels for the original Doom games.

Please retire Cliffy.... for good.

"Touched by EA Bioware Veterans", give me little confidence. They've been tainted by the EA-crapify-ism-fo-mo-money.

Still haven't bought an EA game since Origin store rose it's ugly head. (Other than GOG releases)

This whole generation of cards is just overpriced and not that exciting.

This.

Mostly because of Ray Tracing, which the AMD cards don't do. There still isn't enough games that support Ray Tracing, but they are comparing to last year's tech that has a major feature they don't support for barely under $300.

It's all bogus hype.
