Does appear your SC antics have pushed back the search results since the good ol' days, but hey...

I stumbled on this video the other day. LoD is so solid that Derek completely dodges a guy who's streaming himself in game while talking live with Derek saying "Yes I could give you a tour, but unfortunately I have to go right now..." yet continues talking for another hour.

7:40

He also tries to redfine the word "seamless" when confronted with the question of how he can claim his game is a seamless experience when there's load screens everywhere.

My point being, he's slimy too concerning his own games.

Keep in mind Derek used to threaten to sue other game developers all the time (simple Google search), and he criticizes pretty much every other space game including Elite Dangerous. He seems to have let up when he started going after the big fish. I think it's just so people following him currently see a better image then his past antic.

Not saying SC doesn't have issues, but for me that doesn't justify what Derek's doing. It also means I can't trust anything he posts, because at the least it's going to have a huge bias to how it's presented.

There was nothing as flamboyant as the Oblivion segment. They already have the ability to see a ship someone's piloting from within other structures, ability to walk around inside a ship, and the planet landing wasn't -that- unfeasible.

Besides, I was just trying to get DS on record as saying planetary landing will never happen, in case it ever does (I think they'll implement it), then I ended up on the whole Oblivion tangent. He dodged saying "100% for sure" at the last second. : )

There was a whole intricate scene in the Oblivion demo involving a lady in a room you barge into. She interacts with her dog, and puts it to sleep (with a spell) because it was bothering her. They were claiming that as their radiant AI just doing it's own thing.

No, they do not. That's a well documented R&D build which, much like Star Marine and all the other crap (e.g. Nyx was over a year ago), was done specifically for Gamescom, is **NOT** part of the engine branch, and will **NEVER** see the light of day in this branch. At all.

So, to be clear, you're saying the planet landing we saw in this demo will never be available to the public?

If instead -all- you're saying is they used a non-public intended build with a lot of scripting specifically created for this demo, well that's generally a given these days with E3 like presentations. Half-Life 2 got caught pulling something along those lines, but we eventually got a good game with similar features.

I think that's fine as long as they do get something like it into the final game. Would be nice if they stated it's more a proof of concept, but w/e. Remember the old lady in the room during the Oblivion E3 demo ("bad dog")? That was a flat-out lie.

The only consistent trend they found was that no matter which vendor you use, the more often you update your drivers, the more problems you seem to get, so the advice they give to people is "if its not broken, don't fix it". And I'd tend to agree, I update drivers once in a year usually, only when its necessary for "x brand new game" and never had a problem in a decade now. Also, I avoid drivers which are less than 1 or 2 weeks old like the plague.

Well I update every driver release and pretty much never have an issue.

My pair of 290x's though - when I bought into Mantle, their gpu driven sound and their OG Titan performance for about half the cost? Couldn't Crossfire for months. When they got that working I had to wait 2 more because I used an onboard sound card which was a no go for Crossfire on those cards (terrible stuttering). And then there was the random black screens because of the cheaper memory that they used on a nice chunk of those cards (I still see mention of that issue in forums from time to time). I like how they got away pretty much scott free with that. Just underclock your card till it stops happening... 'k.

Yeah, I will never go back to AMD, but I'm glad they're around. And yes, neither have flawless drivers, but you can most certainly upgrade them all you like and have a shot at no issues from doing it. Maybe I'm just lucky (or something).

News Comments > Mass Effect Remasters Hint

I played through them all last year, texture packs for each one.

I recommend this one for ME1
http://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect/mods/1/?

Use a large address aware on the .exe, also.

ME2, and ME3 were a bit more work though. Had to use Texmod for ME2, which meant very long initial load time when starting the game.

ME3 I had to rebuild the texture path tree to sort of "swap out" the texture pack for the originals. You gotta leave your system running a few hours while that builds.

So yeah, I welcome an HD Remaster.

Good news you don't have a reason to be pissed off.
"And if you already own BioShock, BioShock 2, and/or Minerva’s Den on Steam, you will be able to upgrade to the remastered version of the respective title(s) for free after release."

Anyways I'm down for a prettier second run through B1.

Own the previous versions and we'll wipe away the debt!

Might want to pick it up again till you get to the ranked matches. I don't know if you'll like it more or less at that point, but it's definitely a different beast. Course, you're ranked based on team wins... so gl or w/e

As for "buying into a brand's marketing", that would be relevant if it wasn't so off the mark. My GPU buying history speaks for itself, I never had any preference nor will I ever have any.

No, I said marketing image. Like (but very much not limited to) those who think one company is more evil / good than the other, when really they're both doing what ever it is they can with what they have to cut into the other's sales.

I don't know about these other websites but someone is sure butthurt because they misunderstood or took out of context something that hardocp posted.

Yeah [H] has been calling out various missteps along the way, but people take one look at their articles and scream bias because they buy into the marketing image of either company.

I fall somewhere between posts 1 and 4 in terms of reaction. I do appreciate there being a demo though, hopefully it's enough of a chunk to judge by.

I dunno... I kinda thought the main thing that made Bungie famous was being pretty much the only real Mac game developer back in the day...

As far as I can tell they were the first ones to have an AI system that could actually loose sight of the player in an FPS shooter (halo 1). I went to a developer talk at a conference and they covered the line of site AI system they were using.

Thief series did this too, but it was cool to see it in a fast pace shooter.

There is and there isn't. The game world is evolving and changes a little with each DLC. There are things that happened and we played through that no longer exist in the game, they are now lore, as in "remember back in year one when this happened" People who are jumping in now missed out on those things and will never get to experience them. Could really care less about having some shovel fed long story, game gives you a basic concept, a reason for being there and an awesome sandbox to play in with some of the best mechanics in the industry. Haters gonna hate, I've had great time playing this game and am looking forward to many more hours of fun in the Destiny universe.... but for now it's back to GTA, got me an empire to build!

Ok, gotcha. Thanks. Sometimes minor things early on in an epic style story can lead to major events later in it (Babylon 5, for example). Would hate to miss out in something like that if the game is worth getting. That's mainly my completionist side talking though.
