OUTCAST was a truly amazing game at the time, both visualy and musicaly.

the story, the main character (bruce willis voice), and all the stargate-like universe were also a big part of it.

and it was not a french game guys, but a belgian game !

and yes, the original studio is back (APPEAL), and I have big hopes in this one. I was a backer of the sadly failed kickstarter campaign for the HD reboot. let's cross fingers on this new try !

I think you are thinking of Apocalypse, the only video game other than the Fifth Element adaption that Bruce Willis has ever done a voice for.

I work at an apartment community. If I fail to do something just how a resident wants, I'm an incompetent asshole. Unless that resident is a certain ethnic minority, and then 90% of the time I'm a racist for not doing things the exact same way I do for everyone else as well. I got called a racist for not letting someone who does not live here use our amenities. The real racists are usually the ones pointing fingers and calling everyone else a racist.
While it's not right for them to couch things like that in racist terms, you might be a little understanding after hundreds of years of slavery, 100 years of Jim Crow, and dozens of youtube vids and stories of unarmed black people being killed by police, that they might have that reaction.

That's the problem though, isn't it? A whole lot of people carrying around a huge chip on their shoulders for something that didn't happen to them and blaming people who had nothing to do with it in the first place. And the media eggs them on and sustains the whole mess.

And no, when some bitch plays the race card because she is mad she can't just walk in any old place and get on a computer to check her mail she can go fuck herself and her entitlement. I have no desire to be understanding of assholes.

Can I go to China, Japan, and Korea and bitch about the lack of white dudes in the movies made there? 72% of this country is Caucasian. 12% is black, and they are the BIGGEST minority. Asian ethnics make up about 5% of the population. (From ALL Asian countries.) If anything, most groups are over-represented in Hollywood in some sort of attempt to make everyone feel good about themselves.

Having said that, it is weird when Jesus is a white dude and so is Gandhi. In multiple movies.

The thing is, a lot less than 5% of Hollywood is Asian. If you look at recent major releases, you have Sulu in Star Trek and that dude in the Fast and Furious movie. That's like what, 2 people out of hundreds of actors, both in minor roles. And when's the last time an Asian actor had a leading role in a movie outside of the rare stereotypical Kung Fu flick? There's no way you can say Asians are over-represented.

Also, Hollywood may be based in the US, but it makes movies for global consumption. A lot of blockbusters make WAY more in foreign markets than domestically, and a film's oversea's gross can be essential to its success. That's a huge difference than asian cinema making films for their own much more racially homogenous markets.

I think you're seeing what you want to see and not reality. Pop quiz: Who is one of the lead actors on The Walking Dead? One of the main characters in Maze Runner? Daniel Dae Kim has been in how many hit TV shows AND movies? Lucy Lui? Come on, there are a ton of Asian actors.

Just in case anybody is interested, Origin is doing a 30% off sale this weekend. I just picked up Dragan Age Inquisition GotY edition for $27.99.

Think I'll wait for Asus Strix or similar card. The reference cards are apparently very loud once the fan cranks up, which has been the norm for these cards forever. My Strix 970 is probably the quietest thing on my PC.

I have 2 Strix 970s now. Sooooo quiet, I love it. Looking forward to getting a Strix 1070.

I've had several people over who wear glasses to play on the Vive, and I make them all take them off. They all appear to be able to focus on things anyway. Hell, I have a weird issue with my right eye dilating more than the left, causes unpleasant special effects all the time...but they don't happen in the Vive. Not sure why. They should, but they're noticeably absent.

Definitely give it a spin without glasses, it might surprise you. Also, Sepharo is on the money here, laser surgery all the way.


YES, I had laser surgery, and YES, my special effects are an unfortunate side effect. I had an undiagnosed issue with that eye, they wouldn't have let me GET the surgery had they known. My surgery was a long, long time ago, and they've improved massively since then. My vision is incredibly better than I ever would have believed when I was growing up...seriously, look into it. You will eventually need reading glasses, because there's generally no way around that, but holy crap, best investment ever. Even after the vision issues (think halos around every light source, like in video games), and the terrifying process of getting the surgery done, it's the best investment I've ever made.

I agree. I had Lasik a few years ago and it was he best thing I ever did for myself. I had crap night vision before surgery, and my halos are actually better than they used to be. I had really bad astigmatism in both eyes and couldn't see crap without glasses. So nice not to have to fumble every morning just to read the clock.

Going to wait for the 1070 information. I have 970s in SLI, but it'd be nice to skip the SLI hassle and have more vram.

In metric, one milliliter of water occupies one cubic centimeter, weighs one gram, and requires one calorie of energy to heat up by one degree celsius... which is 1 percent of the difference between its freezing point and its boiling point. An volume of hydrogen weighing one gram has exactly one mole of atoms in it. Whereas... in the American system, the answer to ‘How much energy does it take to boil a room-temperature gallon of water?’ is ‘Go fuck yourself,’ because you can’t directly relate any of those quantities.” -- Wild Thing by Josh Bazell.

Haha, that's awesome.

My PS4 is louder running Uncharted 4 than my PC going full tilt on The Division. I have 2 Asus Strix 970 cards and liquid cooling on the CPU and this thing is quiet. The case has really big fans that run silent as well. Corsair...540 I think? Air? Something. Also the Corsair PSU I am using runs silent. I got really lucky, because most of my upgrade last summer was free Newegg review items or reused stuff from my old Alienware. I pretty much only paid for the video cards.

Nice. Got my CE at work and rushed home to play.

Have fun! I hear it's fantastic...got vacation time coming up for gaming soon.


4 and 1/2 hours later, I'm impressed. Of course, this is my favorite series ever, so I went in expecting to like it, but the graphics are really great, the gameplay is fun, and the story so far is pretty good. I'm a little miffed that they didn't have Greg Edmunson doing the soundtrack again, seems like change just to distance themselves from Henning. And I'm still not convinced on the whole brother thing. Again, feels like Druckman just wanted to get away from what came before and it's honestly a little forced considering NOBODY in 4 games had ever mentioned the brother. But still loving it.

I'm 3 chapters from the end of Uncharted. Then it's U4, and then back to U2 and 3...

Here’s a Batman Arkham HD cover & June release date. Not that it’s happening or anything…

Wish they'd hurry up and finalize that. I've been pretty much only gaming on the ps4 lately, and would love another Asylum run...


Been playing through them on PC for the first time. Not a Batman fan, but the games are done well and pretty fun. I keep having to look up references that they make, though. Who knew Batman had a son? (Probably everyone but me...)

Not too many game challenge modern cards, it's more when you do 4k modern gaming all details on with multimonitors. Then even the multi thousand dollar SLI rigs can struggle.

Depends on your res. 3440x1440 on a 34" monitor can make SLI 970s struggle in some games.

Despite liking pretty much everything else Blizzard has done, I just can't get into this. I've played in a couple of betas and now the open and it's just not my thing. I don't like the characters, the art, or the gameplay. Ah well, Uncharted comes out next week.
