We've known about this practice since the Half-Life 2 showing (4,000 years ago).

Got the game and season pass on a 50% off sale. Played enough of it to know it's an awesome gem of a game. As long as there's no massive bugs, I'm ready to get going on it for realz.

...However, I did pick up Spec Ops: The Line on sale for $9 last weekend. I may have to finish that one first, but I'm close to the end anyways. Game lives up to... well, what I've been reading about..

Yeah, for the record, I totally enjoyed the game, and it does run surprisingly well considering the level of graphics with no working SLI / Crossfire.

I just can't believe how bad of a train wreck the whole port to personal computers has been.

Warner Brothers announces the termination of all existing copies of Arkham Knight. For the Steam platform all purchases will be revoked, and the game will uninstall itself upon opening Steam.

I just left the Steam forum. Apparently the game is now %10 off on Steam while those who preordered paid full price. Ha! Let the shitstorm begin!

Woah, it is! Did it sell horribly in pre-orders or something? A sale on the first day?

Anyways, I'm definitely getting this at some point. Previous game was awesome.

You only have to halve the refresh rate if you're using shutter glass tech, where it has to show both images on the same screen space. VR headsets have each eye looking at it's own screen (though it may be one solid screen cut down the middle).

They're using 90hz screens to get everything looking fluid enough.

Nice! Glad to hear it's a good'un.

I'm going to wait for a bit, I'm just getting going on Legacy of the Void which, so far, is phenomenal. The campaigns have been quietly building to what's turned into a rather epic confrontation.

I was going to get DoK at some point, was just a matter of what level of sale price (already have all the previous games).

I never stated any one thing proves anything. So yes, if you want to take anything anyone presents one piece at a time and say, 'Yes this doesn't prove she's disingenuous. And this one does not prove so...", sure (though I consider that second video a lot more damning than you do considering in her kickstarter video she claimed she was a gamer, and loved video games).

Over the total of what I've seen though, yes.. I believe she's just playing this up for money. I very, very much think so.

Still accepting $400,000 for a talk she canceled, for example.

Anita is a scam artist. There are videos of her promoting a course on how to make money through video commentary. There's solid proof she became a feminist overnight. And there's videos of her saying how much she doesn't even like playing video games. She steals other people's lets play vids without credit to use in her own videos. She found a way to make a quick buck, basically. How much do you want to bet that the outraged comments she's been receiving actually have the negative effects on her she's claiming?

It takes very little effort at this point to uncover all of what I mentioned, and she's very likely just getting the necessary amount of videos out to avoide legal trouble for the original kickstarter.

I think the comments were borked most of the day. None of the articles had any comments till just recent.

Edit - Well since this news actually is kind a boring, bandcamp... I freaking love bandcamp. Favorite album I've purchased off it...

Yeah I caught that, it's just the wording is wonky.

"..including Windows 10 support and 4K resolution"

You kind of assume a given game will work on all currently supported Windows OS'es. Maybe just marketing spin, I guess.

How long did we wait for GTA V? This wasn't long of a wait. With a little rewording they could have just said the PC port is delayed by 2'ish months, but then MS happened.

What's more interesting is that it sounds like this is a Windows 10 only..?

I think the one major thing TFA got right was the fun factor. I can not wait to go see it again.

Not going to spoil anything, but I think there's two areas TPM did better - Originality (there's nothing I can compare TPM's storyline too, regardless of how good the actual plot was or not), and the music. I felt like John Williams kind of phoned it in with this one. I didn't walk out with any memorable themes. Every SW's has some piece that really sticks out (Duel of Fates being an extreme case, or the Ewok's theme, etc). This movie it was just kind of there. Good yes, but nothing signature to the movie itself.

That may be because the normal musician J.J. works with is the same way. The two Star Trek films are just random blaring of French horns and trumpets.

Anyways, in all other areas I think they did great with this one.
