I really liked the UI of Win 95/98. I still do and wouldn't mind being able to use it with modern windows versions.

I assume, but am no means certain, that if you're doing a fresh install instead of updating the beta, it won't do a full old-data install first and then the completely new data patch on top of it? I hope that is the case, or that the patch is much smaller on a new install. I guess I'll see since I kickstarted the game back 13 years ago but don't have the beta installed.


13 years ago? What is this, Duke Nukem Forever 2?

I'm a huge fan of retro inspired games looking like 8 or 16 bit. However, some are taking it too far making the games look worse than something from the 80's running in CGA. Unfortunately, this game looks to be like that. This game looks like it would be much better if it were possible to actually see what's going on. Kick it up to SNES/Genesis level of pixels and I think it would be great.

Thimbleweed Park is a good example of looking like an old school adventure game with 2D pixel-y graphics, yet still looking good at the same time. It's not pixelated for pixel sake. I really like that game a lot.

The netcode is utter garbage. Just get a new one already...

If they had a Comp USA store nearby they could have just stopped over and picked one up off the shelf.
Maybe CIG and PUBG can share the cost of a Netcode.


How many Netcodes will it take to fix it?

I watched some live streaming a few days ago from IGN. It looked really boring. But all of these survival type of games come off that way to me anyway.

I'd much rather play Arma 3.

Sadly, I no longer have my GeForce 4 4600 Ti. One time I was transferring it to a new machine and I dropped it on a wood floor. After that the card had massive graphics corruption and at the time they had a lifetime warranty so I sent it in. But by this time these cards were no longer being made so I was given a GeForce FX 5600. Even though the FX GPUs were crap, it still was faster than the 4 was so I was fine with that at the time.

I still miss that GeForce 4 though. I had some good memories around the time it came out and how I got it.

the fact is pretty obvious that PUBG just hit gold out of pure luck.

It's actually an interesting phenomenon. If you look at most wealthy and/or successful people, pure luck is responsible for the overwhelming majority of them. If one minor thing hadn't gone their way, none of it would have come to fruition.


It's not luck or a phenomenon. There is no such thing as luck or coincidences (your last statement actually hints at this). These are terms thrown around by those who can not see the big picture. Everything happens for a reason. There is no luck or chance.

As far as this pubg creator goes, this guy is a complete douche. Complaining about copycats while he ripped off, pretty blatantly, a movie and all kinds of things.

You can play the Steam version of Doom with any source port. I recommend GZDoom. Better control mapping and higher resolutions (and even mouse look and hardware texture filtering if you're into that).

Definitely getting this! Probably on PS4.

I loved the first one on the Dreamcast. As a matter of fact, I have my Dreamcast hooked up in my living room right now through the Framemeister using S-Video (since I recently bought the excellent Dynamite Cop). I may throw Soul Calibur in there later. It's been quite a long time since I last played it.

I can't remember if I even have any of the other ones.

I can't agree about the second half of Full Metal Jacket being forgettable. It kind of was too bad that R Lee Ermey wasn't a part of it but it was still done very well.

ME LOVE YOU LONG TIME!

No boom boom with soul brotha! Soul brotha too beaucoup, too beaucoup! LOL

News Comments > Morning Patches

Free locomotion is available with the PS4 version of Doom VFR. But it's an option that is disabled by default and will only work with the dual shock controller or the Aim controller since those have thumbsticks. If you're using the move controllers you have to use teleportation since there's no thumbstick.

Teleportation is actually not all that bad once you get used to it. It plays better than it looks on video. It's also a very fast way to move around which fits the gameplay of doom perfectly. The only thing I find awkward about the move controllers is since there's no D-pad, using the dodge moves with the buttons in a square layout is kind of weird. I always dodge in the opposite direction I mean to. It will take some more getting used to for that.

One thing Sony really needs to add to PS VR is supporting more cameras (and then defining a play area like the PC HMDs will do). There's times where I ended up facing away from my TV to shoot some dudes behind me and the PS camera was only partially seeing the move controllers which made it really hard to shoot. But using the 180 spin button helps re-orient yourself pretty well to avoid this issue.

It will be great when VR is finally wireless too. Depending on the game, you can very easily get wrapped up in the cord like a mummy, which happens more often in doom.

I'll probably wait for a sale to get Doom VFR for the PC while letting Oculus support get more stable in SteamVR. For now, I'm liking the PS VR version quite a bit.

I played World in Conflict when it came out. Very good game. It had pretty demanding graphics for the time as well. I had to upgrade my gfx card to a 8800 GTX (which was high end at the time) to play it at not slide-show fps. I've been meaning to play it again. Now I will.

So posting videos of events that actually happened is "propaganda" and "hate speech" now? LOL

What about all the users that tweet for violence against men and white people? Why doesn't Twitter have to make excuses for that?

Of course we all know the answer already.


LOL! Yeah, the libtards are at it again. Anything that goes against their wickedness/political-correctness is "hate" yet they are the ones spreading the most true hate of all.

Hopefully this will be playable on the Rift at some point.

Until then, I just got a Playstation VR (which I HIGHLY recommend if you have a PS4) and my Doom VFR copy is on the way for that.
