"Are NEW Chinese buildings really FALLING DOWN? NSFW."

At one point the dude sounded like he said the buildings were built by a company called wankers. Sounds about right.

Amazon's Prime discount thing for games sucks. It used to be a little better but over time it's getting more and more lame. It's such a shame Best Buy ended their Gamer's Club Unlocked service. Luckily I still have it until the end of 2019. It was so superior to Amazon.

Blow, you can have simplicity or power, but you can't have both. Just because you don't have the ability to grasp C++ well does not mean it's a "mess." Remember, programming languages and scripting languages are just TOOLS. Pick the right one for the job.

It's just like with graphics APIs. Lets say OpenGL and Vulkan. OpenGL is VERY easy to get something up on the screen. But it's legacy design does not allow you to get the most performance out of modern GPUs combined with OS and driver overhead. Vulkan on the other hand does allow this, but is MUCH harder to use and takes a ton more code to write to get even a simple thing rendering.

Like the old saying goes, you can't have your cake and eat it too.

It sounds like he just wants, yet another, game framework API.

I don't give a crap about consoles, but I wonder what's up Sony's but about crossover games on the PS4.
Considering the stupid as fuck path the jackasses at Bethesda are going with 76 who gives a fuck about the game itself?

If they hever make a "fallout 5" they are going to be hard pressed to win me back.


Video games is serious bizniz.

For some reason yesterday on Best Buy's website, they had the console version for $10 off. So I grabbed it for the XboneX and with my gamer's club 20% discount plus a $5 coupon, I got it for $11.90. Not bad.

That's too bad about Xbone VR. I like the PS VR a lot. For one thing it's a lot more comfortable than a Rift or Vive and also my living room is much larger than my office where my PC is. The One X would have worked really well with VR.

They "Golden Age of iD" is when they outsource their IP's to other studios because their internal engines are garbage.


id Tech 6 is FAR from garbage. Did you not play Doom (2016)? What other engine can have visuals like that and run as fast? None that I can think of. Plus scale down to the Switch and still look damn good.

Yet another delusion of Tim Willits to add to the already thick book of "Tim's Delusions." Hot on the trails of his claim to have created the shareware version of Quake and the concept of multiplayer only maps. Good thing we still have John Romero making people his bitch and setting the record straight on that. lol

id's golden age was Wolf 3D through Quake 3. A time where so many PC gamers, myself included, would spend a ton of money upgrading their machine for ONE game - id's new game.

$5,733.85

Damn. I did not think it was anywhere near that! Most of the time I buy games only on sale, and big sales too. Only very special games get bought at full price.

My profile says 539 games owned and I'm at 14 years of service.

I think I might have a problem.

I loved Destruction Derby back on the original Playstation. I didn't realize at the time there was a PC version as well. So I am definitely interested in this game. But of course I'll wait for some reviews first.

EA: "We want to be better"

Yeah, be better at greedy practices for as long as possible before enough people catch on. To be better at screwing over everyone. To be better douchebags.

F EA.
