Rooster with blade kills man during cockfight in Telangana.

Someone should have told him not to let the cock fight become...*puts on sunglasses* personal. YEEEEEEEEEEAH!

Looks like your cock fought...*puts on sunglasses* and lost. YEEEEEEEEEEAH!

I mean, the jokes just write themselves with this one.

I'd say these patent trolls have no chance, but the article mentions that Microsoft already opted to license the patent from Ironburg. It's a shame Microsoft caved, because it'll be an uphill battle for Valve now.

Of course, "Ironburg/SCUF" doesn't actually make any fucking products, but what are you going to do when they've already won one case against Microsoft?

Incidentally, they stopped selling the Steam controllers? I still use mine occasionally, best PC controller I've had.

2 seconds of Google would tell you they do, in fact, make high end controllers. https://scufgaming.com/

Sigh. Time to chalk up my hands and prepare to climb some towers.

Haha! I was too late to make this exact comment.

That said, I've gotten a lot of hours out of the Ubisoft formula games, so I'm cautiously interested.

Massive Games didn't have towers....

Dude, far Cry 3 and AC: Revelations. Massive has so done towers.

These guys are now working on an Avatar (The blue aliens, not the air benders) game and a Star Wars game. Hopefully they won't muck it up.

This is just another attempt by the corrupt left wing tech companies to stifle conservative christian conversation. What they are doing is disgusting and I'm not going to take it any more. There's nothing going on in Parler that's hate speech or anything else it's just a group of people wanting to have a Twitter like experience without having some sort of disclaimer on the bottom or worried about their accounts getting banned or anything else.

-- my former coworker here in Georgia


Sheesh, how do people NOT consider the thousands (tens of thousands?) of death threats and calls for the violent overthrow of the government, along with the murder and torture of anyone they disagree with, hate speech?

Also, so much for businesses being able to deny service at any point, for any reason. Those anti-gay bakers are going to be pissed.

I know, right? Which means Twitter and Facebook and all the other social media apps should have been shut down this summer as well.

Everyone is OK with censoring people they disagree with. Just wait until it's your opinion they disagree with and you get censored. I don't agree with either side, since they are both full of self-serving politicians just looking to get rich and powerful off the backs of the people. The logic defying twists both sides play trying to redefine reality is just mind blowing.

Heh, I wonder if they will keep the slide from the 2nd floor to the first? I got to visit for a Fortnite test about 6 years ago. Building was really cool. Some really cool memorabilia on display, big Gears statue out front.

Remember, Epic is not only video games. Yes, they make a ton from their games. They make even more from their graphics engine. PS5 was developed around Epics suggestions. The Mandalorian? That uses Unreal engine for most of the background images on their state of the art LED screen studios, as do most of Disney's upcoming TV shows, and now their new movies as well. Epic can afford to buy an unused mall at a deep discount price.

Reviews are not good. Maybe a good idea to wait until this is on sale and not pay $60.

Yep, it was terrible. I refunded after 48 minutes. I've been told I needed to play for about 2 1/2 hours to get to where the game isn't a series of mini-levels chopped up with tons of cut scenes. Eff that, you don't have 2 hours to draw me into a game. If the first part isn't fun, you can't expect people to just keep dredging though hoping it gets better. And smooth turn and picking things up should have been working at release. Those are basic VR game functions. Respawn really messed this one up.

I can't even finish Exodus. I keep getting a bug halfway through Caspian where the NPC required to progress a quest just doesn't ever show up. Their support team just keep[s telling me to restart the level. Between this adn the year delay due to their Epic deal, they can GFT.

Oh. Just had a thought to add.


The streamers are paying the publishers and dev in 'exposure'. Because isn't that something some try to fob off on artists?

Totally not the same.
When people say they are going to pay an artist in exposure, they are trying to get the artists to give them something for free or at a deeply discounted price.

Streamers have already purchased the game. The publisher already has their money, and NOW they are getting free advertisement as well. That this douche thinks the STREAMER should be paying for.

I honestly think music should work this way as well. Instead of beating down any creator who dares use their music, artists should be glad for the free advertisement. Jesus, look at Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. All of the sudden they are raking in cash again from a 40 year old song because some random on a longboard used it in his video and it went viral.

I just bought the Crysis bundle on Steam because it was on sale for $15 for all the games. (Owned on disc, but easier for me on Steam.)

Crysis 1 at 3440x1440 all settings max only runs at 75-80fps on a 2070 card with an i7-8700k and 32GB of DDR4.

The newest COD runs with a higher fps on all ultra settings with them NVidia RTX settings on. EDIT: With them, lol. "With the"

Granted, the software has been optimized over the years, but Crysis is still very demanding even on modern hardware. It also looks way better than any other 13 year old FPS game.

This game is not at all ready for release...

Not from a technical perspective - the game is marred with bugs, huge performance issues, freezes, crashes, memory leaks, and utter lack of optimization...

and subjectively not from a gameplay perspective. Its uninspired, dull, and just overall boring gameplay. The loot system is awful and unnecessary, the visuals are smeared and marred with over use of motion blur, and the combat is mostly spam buttons and nothing else.

Its so obviously not a platform for a good game from start to end, but one designed to be merely a market stand to forever sell their endless supply of micro transactions.

Yup, it's epic all right. Epically boring. And sure, I totally want to get teased with all the Avengers and then play a teenage girl who is a copy of Mr. Fantastic. And I kept getting stuck in levels because HULK SMASH...bad guy through wall and now I can't kill him so that I can move on. For $15 this would still be irritating. For the $60 they are charging? Get real.

Heh, its not cheap hardware causing the problem and well, this game was originally on a ps4 at 1080p. It shouldn't take much HP to run it.

HWUB does a good rundown on GPU performance in the game:

It also originally ran in 4K on a PS4Pro, so yeah, it does take some HP to run.

Beat Alyx last night. Playing through HL2 again now. I wish I could play it in VR.

BTW, based on the way Alyx ends: HALF-LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!

IN 2034. Probably.

Just finished the game, took about 14 hours, and I missed some stuff even though I THOUGHT I was quite thorough.

Valve never, EVER said "We guarantee our games will never need advanced equipment to play". In fact, Half life 1 and 2 required hefty rigs when they came out, I don't see what the difference is here. Their goal with each HL game was to push gaming forward, and Alyx is no different.

If you don't want to get a VR kit, go watch someone else play it on YouTube. It'll be a far more authentic experience of the game than if you played a hacked together, absolutely feature-devoid version of it.

That's the thing about all the complaints about VR. People forget that back in 1998 you either had to buy a 3D card or run the game in shitty software rendering mode. Unreal did this too. Then Half-Life 2 was 3D card only. People whined back then about having to buy a 3D card, so expensive, blah blah blah. Then games started coming out with NO SOFTWARE MODE! OMGZ! RAGE! Forcing us to buy 3D card! rawr!

It's the same with people who bought games on PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, 360 and then had to upgrade to the new console to play the sequels.

Tech marches on. Keep up or be left behind.

You want HL: Alyx without the VR? Go find a copy of Jurassic Park: Trespasser. That's how it would play. Remember we used to call that game Arm Simulator 2000? Yeah. What fun that game was.

Absolutely the best VR game I have ever played. From the very start, just sucks you right in. I spent 15 minutes playing with markers and a wipe board, lol. Combat is great. The guns feel very real (which is an issue with quite a few games.) The lighting in this game, whew. The alien stuff in the quarantine zone. Just a fantastic job by Valve.

Now, if they could just make HL3. VR or flat, or both. Just do it!
