Bungie may not want to give a F about pc.. but with overwatch single handedly kicking ass (and will do so long after) it would be stupid of them to do so. The PC MMO market is a monster and bungie would be missing out on so much untapped revenue. Even squaresoft and rockstar know this. Eitherway I will wait for them, if they want my money they can come after it.

Of course it's still going to be 2D. If they were going to invest into completely remaking the game engine, why even bother with Starcraft 2?

Who said anything about remaking game engines? We have the perfect engine already! Starcraft 2! This should have been a simple mix of reused assets and new assets to remake starcraft 1.. minus needing to remake cut scenes (not that we wouldn't want to see that). I would bet real money that the amount of work to make starcraft 2 into starcraft 1 would have been about the same amount of work as using a completely different engine (again.. I don't know if its new.. but when was the last time blizzard made a 2d engine?) that uses todays video modes and the high resolution sprites which also need to be drawn IN 3D!!!

I would have been interested in it had it been like SC2.. even todays SC2 looks awesome. This... this just looks like shit. Oh sure I'm sure hardcore SC fans will fart around in it for a while.. but it could have been so much more.

odd... its still 2d? .... why? its like star craft 2 but shit animation.

Because it's a reskin of the original and not a totally new game?

Engine is completely different. I'm sure they needed to convert a lot over to the new engine (I say new, it may be a part of their currently used stuff)

ublock doesn't stop block fact that you visited bigmommas.com.

No, instead I am going to look forward to using tunneling services now. ublock made me dissappear from advertisers, tunnel bear will make me dissappear from my ISP. Your move, charter.

I think shaders will get it right. I kind of laughed at the article about things like with lcd the pixels will be wrong the color not as vibrant.. refresh..ect.

#1 these crt monitors were in no way calibrated, there was no such thing as color correction back then. It is up to the user to determine of the colors look good.

#2 60fps is pretty much doable by any consumer LCD. If you must, you can get a high quality TN panel, I would wager the 6 bit dithered color pallet is still more color accurate then the CRT. The only issue is gun games, they simply do not work. There are creative ways around this but we will most likely need to look into alternative controllers to get back the light gun aspect.

ontop of all this

#3 with tech limitations out of the way, we can then use shaders and visual trick to simulate the low resolution inaccuracies of the CRT. Right now the shaders are more of an artistic impression rather then an accurate one but I'm sure someone will pull through with %99 accurate shaders.

I'm not worried... these days a delay in the Pc versions means I can't pull the trigger before finding out the game is actually shit. Aside from WoW and Overwatch, my other 2 games that I fall back to is witcher 3 and GTA 5. Everything else has been a disappointment.

I was forced to bring my windows 10 test PC back to 8.1 when then anniversary update took 24 hours to install itself. Even the ISO install that had the update streamlined took hours, I said f this and loaded 8.1 back onto the usb stick.

Re: No mans sky, the article answered the question. One of the people did not have a plus account. The game says it does not NEED plus because it can work in an offline mode. It did not say you don't need PLUS to see other people.

6. Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic Announces New Expansion & Free Trial Jul 17, 2016, 23:55 JeffD
 
The only thing I dont like is it looks like the new and last expansion content are sub/pay only, which means you won't get much end game access under the free plan.

Swotr is not an ideal free to play game. Rift does it much better. Guild wars 2 also ponied up alot of content to do under its free to play account which is everything before the new expansion. Ie it is a ton of stuff.
