I read an article some months ago about people using devices in their pockets to scan the chip cards in peoples wallets. Just by walking close to them or bumping into them on the street. But there's supposedly wallets out there meant to block those.

Give it less than a year and chip cards won't be anything special safety wise. They'll figure it out.
You can't scan chip cards like that. Chip cards require direct contact to interface with, as they're not wireless devices. Plus the card is designed in such a way that you can't reuse authentication tokens, so even if you could connect to a card, you need the chip for each and every transaction you attempt.

It sounds like you confused chip cards with NFC/RFID.

Yeah it's the NFC scanners that I've heard about people using to steal money. As long as the dollar amount is below $30 or something, then a PIN isn't required. Technically I suppose it's true. I've used my CC to pay that way and I don't see any reason a thief who had the hardware couldn't utilize it that way. You can get cards for your wallet that are supposed to shield them against this type of gadget. I have one, but I haven't tried putting it to the test yet.

Better name: Alan Wake Up

They should have all sorts of Windows integration and call it Alan 10.


Alan TenBone

Lol. I was trying to think of a joke for Alan 10. Couldn't come up with anything. But you, sir, have found it.

I'm hoping Microsoft has learned not to use 'exclusives' to try to sell hardware or new OS, or to monetize something, or anything. It worked once with Halo, but honestly so many other times they have tried it (that I am aware of), it has failed, sometimes hilariously so, to the point where I think of MS nerds with pocket protectors jumping up and down screaming 'Curses! Foiled again!'. It's just so transparent and people hate it.

I mean, when I see a Games for Windows or (God forbid) Games for Windows Live sticker on something, that is literally reason enough for me to put the box down and walk out of the store (or online store, or whatever). It's really that bad.

Exclusives have been used to sell console hardware since the beginning. You can't tell me Bloodborne, Uncharted and The Last of Us haven't moved more than a few Playstation's. I don't see it changing anytime soon.

Also, YES A NEW ALAN WAKE!!!!!

Yes, that is completely true, and Sony and Nintendo are really good at it. But that wasn't my point. My point was that Microsoft are nowhere near as good at it with the XBox, and unutterably and Doofenshmirtz-comically bad at it with the PC.

I dunno, Halo and Gears of War did pretty good in the past. They're not my cup of tea but they were pretty well received. They definitely won't quit trying though, or they'll simply be the one company that DOESN'T have exclusives. And then there will be no reason for anybody to buy their kit.

News Comments > Steam VR Performance Test Teases Us
20. Re: Steam VR Performance Test Teases Us Feb 23, 2016, 14:04 Bundy
 
I'll try this when I get home. I have 2 SSD's, 16GB, i7 4770 (oc 4.5Ghz), but a 780 GTX. So I'm not sure it'll be enough. I can't get any of these VR kits in 2016 anyway, so I figured I might just wait for one of those new fancy FinFET HBM2 GPUs that AMD and Nvidia are releasing soon and grab both at the same time. Still unsure how I'm going to tell my wife that that $2000 I just spent was on virtual reality. Frankly, I simply don't understand why that should irritate her. Makes perfect sense to me.

The best part of this news is that now Remedy is free to make Alan Wake 2. Which they fucking well better.

I just hope they do keep some of the ideas they had from that 13 minute demo of AW2. Like the whole neeeding to piece together the writing on the pages into the real world part was actually an interesting mechanic.

Agreed.

The premise for this is neat. I don't know if it's something i'd be interested in playing (or watching as it were), but kudos to them for trying something different.

I don't know anything about this. Is it a long-awaited sequel to Quantum Leap?

Don't even joke about that. I'm still pissed about the end of Quantum Leap.

Is this going to be anything like the first 2? Wargaming seems like the wrong people to be making a 4X game. How the hell did they even get the license in the first place?

They bought the license at the Atari bankruptcy auction.

How much money did they piss away on this cast? So you'll end up with a 5 hour campaign because of this nonsense.

Cutter loses more points for this one. Campaign?!?! Master of Orion doesn't need no fucking campaign. This isn't Call of Duty or Tomb Raider dude, think Civilization.

Bluesnews comments are downright boring nowadays. Same group of old men that hate anything they don't personally like and just want hd remakes of games they played in their glory years.

Like the HD version of KOTOR I heard about. I give Disney 3 minutes to cease and desist that one when they hear about it.

Lol, well if it had been an Xbox one exclusive instead of a ps4 exclusive, there would have been way more negative posts. This one ain't too bad. As far as blues goes.

This might single-handedly turn the fail that is SteamOS into a real Windows killer for games. Thoughts?

It'll certainly help, but there's more to adding Linux compatibility than just the graphics api. But certainly coding your game in Vulkan makes the whole process easier.

Will have to wait and see how it pans out. A game developer I follow on Twitter went to check it out this morning and he was already bitching about it. But it is 1.0.

Once all the big engines add Vulkan support then ports will be even easier. Ive tried porting some unity stuff to Linux and had to do a bunch of recoding for opengl stuff that wasn't supported like it was in d3d.
