General Discussion > Blues news is pretty horrible on phones...
1. Blues news is pretty horrible on phones... Jul 16, 2018, 22:35 JeffD
 
I am surprised this hasn't been brought up by anyone, but blues news is actually a pain to read on my galaxy's chrome browser. With only 2 color schemes, white on blue is impossible to read with the blue headlines, and white on black is only a touch better. The biggest issue is the topics for all the news post are considerable smaller than the body text. Lastly is some of the formatting, namely the "Out of the blue" is just micro sized.

Its an online game, messing with the code can get you banned as well as produce synch issues.

Get a load of fps man over here. You wanna know what would really bust his balls is if I told him most online games do not update even 30 times a second.

60fps caps are fine.

Lets just say that if it came out with the console release I would be playing it, but I do not see my self with any interest by the time it finally rolls out. I also don't know anyone still playing the console release which says lots about capcom's support.

So... even though a yelp review was found guilty of defamation and judgment passed on the defendant, there is no way to get the false information removed even by a court order?

'Merica!!

Meanwhile apple is stuck in reverse with their homepod speaker system. I shit you not.. my target has not sold one since we got it months ago. No one has ever asked for it or about it, either.

I love how the parent hasn't cut the kid from the internet or the games despite the lawsuit. Parenting at its best.

not a big deal, we usually don't see games that can take advantage of next gen video cards until the next gen of consoles because reasons. I was able to hold onto my 460gtx for so many years.

As long as devices like these need wifi then we are in control. And have fun moving to cellular connections, it would not take much to attach some wires and boom, free internet. 1

So Xbox X is going to be the only system to give red dead a graphics boost.

What is REALLY going to frost your balls is what if I told you said graphic updates could easily have been given to the xbox one version, but microsoft is only putting it on its xbox x to benefit those that pony up for a second more expensive xbox?

As much as playing red dead in HD appeals to me, microsoft's practices sicken me more.

I wouldn't expect a recall... and the sad thing is a cash back settlement would stretch so thin it wouldn't be worth it. I am thinking more of a discount coupon usable on any cpu or device with an intel cpu in it for the future. However lawyers will be lawyers and we will probably see the former since they get half the money.

Despite always being the best version, PC makes the least amount of money short term. Saddly gamers don't care about quality these days.

Y'all people are missing the point. It's just yet another inconvenience of non-user replaceable batteries. Had we kept user replaceable batteries in all smartphones, we would've never heard about this, nor would it had ever happened.

It would be easily solvable, were it not unprofitable for them to do so, profits/shareholders above clients, that's what it's about, as usual.

I would like to see this spark a movement for replaceable batteries again. There is no reason the phone can't be water proofed and the battery compartment be kept sectioned off. Drying a battery off is easy fixings.

1. Batteries Dec 13, 2017, 10:39 JeffD
 
You know...I don't know why iphone users would be all up in arms about this, I would be perfectly fine with my phone slowing things down a little so that when batteries get old..I don't start losing screen time. Obviously I would love an indicator of some sort letting me know my batteries efficiency level, but I would rather things be a little slower rather then have to charge my battery in the middle of the day.

News Comments > Destiny 2 Free Trial Released
14. Re: Use WoW Gold for Other Blizzard Games Nov 29, 2017, 00:53 JeffD
 
I got destiny for 35 from GMG and I'm liking it. Never played the first one but I always thought it was the kind of game I would totally dig. Mostly PvE but mmo in nature...although not nearly MMO on the scale of planetside.

The good:

- Game looks awesome.. and performs even better. The only thing that looked off was the waves on the water planet, you really need a whole separate technology package to do those sky scraper tall waves and look good doing it.

- story progresses well and doesn't stagnet to much in one place. Recently finished up some old main quest for FF14 to do stormblood and fell asleep because I was running around doing so much talking in the same place.
- weapon inventory and learning the upgrades and mods isn't too complex. Weapons and armors are given directly to you and you can infuse the power level of one into an older gun to keep that gun, and mods are straight forward.
- getting around to public events is pretty easy, most are near warp in points, and you are given a basic speeder at 20.

- Not sure what the guy below said, there is a group finder built in for strikes and such. Raids and maybe nightfalls may need manual organization. It took decades for WoW to find a manual LFG tool that worked well. There are several external tools to help with this.

- you can hop in, get some events done and be out in as short as 20 minutes if you prefer short sessions.

The bad:

- there is a pretty bad grind at 20. Doing events and strikes will net you streams of blues and purples that will keep your power level ticking up, but there is no such thing as instantly getting 230,260,300 gear levels if you are on alts or playing catchup. That is to say, there is no catchup. So while you join a clan and everyone is 305, you can't be carried into a raid and get 300 loots. What drops for you will be your level +5ish.

- I wont say the premise of the story is bad, but while the scope of the enemy and his plans are vast and over powering, you pretty much never get NPC help, and there are no multi player encounters like story mode strikes/raids for encounters that should have called for them. After finishing, you are left wondering what the danger was because you SINGLE HANDEDLY solved everything.

- each world has a large zone filled with open areas and plenty of buildings and passage ways with baddies to kill, but the game only allows like 8-10 people to spawn in each instance. This can lead to problems doing public events as at best its you and 4 others, and at times it is just you, and for the most part public events are not soloable.

- only 4 worlds, some zones accommodate 4-5 public events but some less, one of them only holds 2 and is just 2 open areas. This is a far cry from MMORPGs like FF14 and GW2 with events spread over vastly more land.

Overall: I probably consider it worth the $35 I paid for it. There are no monthly fees and it scratches my MMO Shooter itch. Bungie will probably add and improve the base game overall in the future as well as add content (that you need to pay for). It is a great looking world with what you can explore and while the mission and raids make the world seem bigger, when you are just free roaming and doing public events then options become smaller. There are many chances to go digging into tunnels and bunkers and you almost allways find a boss with loot to kill at the end.. but its all trash mobs and no real sense of accomplishment.

News Comments > Wireless HTC Vive Focus Details
1. ..... Nov 14, 2017, 16:33 JeffD
 
HTC's pr department is in full FUD mode. Don't throw your money away. Daydream is flailing because of lose performance requirements and expensive hardware. Gear VR is doing MUCH better because its using high end phones with top notch displays, and is partnered with the oculus store. There are also tools available for Oculus developers to port games down to the Gear VR.

HTC should have really partnered with Gear VR, no matter how difficult that might have been. Samsung and HTC may be rivals, but I think they would take all the help they can get with getting Gear VR even further off the ground.
