I am shocked. SHOCKED! Frankly, if I had known there was a "anti-vaccination stronghold" I would have been tempted to walk through there myself, while infected.

Standing desks aren't really overrated, people just aren't getting them for the right reasons. Ideally you use one to even out postural problems developed by sitting in the same position all day. It also helps reduce the potential for RSI, people who stand are more likely to move around throughout the day and get away from the desk.

It was never a form of exercise or something silly.

Treadmill desks, on the other hand...

He should have named the effort of launching the BFR into space the "Punch" so that he could repeatedly Falcon Punch the international space station.

Also, any astronauts riding in this new rocket should be called "Troopers" and right before launch they have to shout to the tower "C'mon you apes! You want to live forever?!"

I still remember my visit to Valve to play it the summer of '98. I remember Gabe N showing me the train intro and asking me what I thought. I said I liked it (of course, I had not seen something like it before), and he said he thought it sucked and needed work. He was a harsh critic, but I'm sure that helped make the game a classic. Throwback to my Half-Life preview, courtesy of the internet archive.

They had some of that stuff in Minority Report, too. Hard to believe that movie was already 12 years ago.

Iím not a fallout fan, but my wife is. As soon as they said the new Fallout would be multiplayer, she lost all interest. Somehow, while MOST games are automatically BETTER when you add in multiplayer, Bethesda managed to make theirs worse.

She didn't say "Honey, let's both get copies and play together so we can live our romantic post-apocalyptic dreams!"

I think his point was if you need a $1,400 video card to get a stable 1080/60, that is terrible -- not that 1080/60 in of itself is terrible.
This is what I meant.

I know what raytracing is, I know its computing cost. It's just I'd rather play in 4K with a 1080ti which costs less than half the money, than spending 1400$ just for 1080/60 with cute reflections.

It's too early for this tech.

Almost nobody has RTX cards yet. I'm sure it's optimized to look and run great without it. Frostbite is one of the better-optimized engines out there.

Hi all,

Development of Unreal Tournament is still on hold and I don't have any news about when it will continue. Many of you have been asking for an update, but there isn't anything new to report at this time. The team is working super hard on Fortnite, so there aren't a lot of people to spare.

If anything changes, I'll let you know. <3

I played a game
Twas no money...was free
It was supported by the
Commm-uoon-Nat-Tee
Twas not made the way I like
So I cried and cried
Like when Santa did not bring me a bike
I wish it was this
I wish it was that
But I still sit here and play
While my body gets fat
I think I will go outdoors
Into the world
And get a life
Maybe meet a girl
And put this silly game away
Maintain my composure
Have a nice day!

LOL.

Right, SQ42 will be traditional "mission levels" like you'd see for any other space shooter, not the open world sandbox promised with the PU. I wasn't expecting anything else for SQ42.

Yes, that's what we all expected. But that's not what I was talking about. Maybe I wasn't clear or you didn't understand what I was getting at. Let me see if I can offer some clarity.

Using the starmap...

Let's say a mission takes place in Stanton system, in space and over Lorville planet. They have it built because it's in SC already.

What about a mission that takes place in the Hadrian system, in that space or on the planet? We have yet to see those in SC because, well, there's no inter-system travel now anyway.

So either they have built the Hadrian (or whatever system the SQ42 trailer takes place in) system, or they once again created cinematic using pre-existing assets just for the trailer. Like they've done so many times in the past.

Engine issues aside, this could explain why SQ42 isn't out yet, and also why they've been promising the roadmap since Q4/17, and again in crobert's latest newsletter - but haven't actually released it. And they won't do that because that would reveal the real state of SQ42.

I see what you mean now. I would hope that the SQ42 team would just build what they need for those systems and not wait for the PU team to build it first. That would be the logical thing to do. But logic doesn't seem to be used much on this project.

Sweet deal. MS and BH are sold out, and Samsung is rejecting my shipping address even though I live in the United States.

Half-Life 1 - EXCELSIOR! What a great, overwhelming experience back then. This game is one of the greatest gaming experiences I ever had - it fascinated me more than e.g. Wing Commander or the original Doom. It is up there for me with Ultima III (the first I REALLY played and finished of the Ultima titles).

I will ALWAYS love you, Half-Life 1 - ALWAYS! Love
Any plans to revisit once Black Mesa is complete?

My oldest kid has trouble with the concept that Counter Strike is older than he is....but is still a benchmark competitive shooter for kids in his high school.

But he's not playing the original, is he? He's playing CSGO I assume. Unless your oldest is six?
