News Comments > Resident Evil 7 Specs
3. Re: Resident Evil 7 Specs Sep 22, 2016, 21:11 Wallshadows
 
The recommended specs seem fine even with an i7 but they have a long way to go. Hopefully they'll go down across the board with further optimization and whatnot because the disparity between both isn't enough to really make a lot of sense. At least they're upfront in saying they have more work to do and usually requirements go down with further optimization (I would think).

Either way, I'm happy to see an official announcement and general release date.

News Comments > Battlefield 1 System Specifications
19. Re: Battlefield 1 System Specifications Sep 20, 2016, 09:09 Wallshadows
 
There have been beta and alpha videos on Youtube where even modest systems with i3s have been able to push 60FPS+ consistently on high/ultra without beefy graphic cards so I'm not worried about the specs for this title. If anything, it seems to run much better than Mankind Divided.

Everyone knows that most consumers aren't going to dig into a game's reviews

Doesn't this kind of undermine his entire post?

So they have the right to sue anyone ...
They do. They do have the right to sue anyone for any reason they can think of. They do not have the right to force a judge to make a case out of every lawsuit they file. There has to be at least "something" valid to even acknowledge that there MIGHT be a case.

I see what you mean but surely there becomes a point where filing frivolous lawsuits will net you vexatious litigation which would ultimately put a legal end to filing without some kind of special permission. The Digital Homicide folks seem to be well on their way to such action unless it's different for those who self-represent.

I can only assume that this is why every law firm laughed in their faces since cases such as this are much more of a liability for obvious reasons for both lawyer and their firm that they won't touch it with a fifty foot pole.

Yep and that is where perhaps the first thing we sort of have to overcome to get past insanity. Lawyers just go looking for a judge who will support the cause and/or accept dollars under the table to support the cause.

The thing is is that they're representing themselves in all their legal disputes and I doubt they have enough money to pull such support from a judge. The judge is simply shit in this case. Last I recall, they tried to use crowdfounding to pay for their legal fees against Jim Sterling and I doubt they've made any more money since then.

If anything, they now make zero dollars.

Quboid wrote on Sep 17, 2016, 14:58:
Yep. You shouldn't be able to just post whatever crap you want about other people with no regard for the truth and assume there'll be no consequences. Even when the other people are assholes. This is a pretty awful way to deal with the problem but it's not like they have any respect to lose.

So they have the right to sue anyone who say bad things about them even though most of it is, in fact, the truth? Does Blizzard have the right to sue me when I say something bad about Diablo 3?

Especially for hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars?

I want to see how far Valve will go to fight on behalf of their users againts the subpoenas.

In this case they wouldn't have to go far at all. Valve will say 'no' unless the Romine brothers are dumb enough to sue Valve at which point I am sure Valve has enough harassment complaints against DH to make The Art of War look like a novella then grind them in to dust with an army of lawyers.

They're suing over harassment and loss of revenue so their response is what could be argued as vexatious litigation and have now thoroughly burned their bridge to what is likely the biggest digital platform especially towards indie titles.

You know what, I really do think they'd be stupid enough to sue Valve when they stonewall their subpoena and I hope it backfires on the Judge who would allow it in the first place.

For any other developer this would be shocking but this is Digital Homicide so it's par for the course. I'm surprised they even found a Judge who would give them something more than a book thrown at them.

Here's to hoping it'll be Valve or Jim Fucking Sterling, Son who hits them with a huge counter-suite which would just be the icing on the cake although I doubt it's even in court yet because every firm has likely laughed them out of the building. I wouldn't be surprised if they can't afford to proceed due to the costs even if they were representing themselves.

That would be an amazing sight to see though so I almost want them to go to court if only to hear about how much of a circus they would perform.

If VR had a FPS then Metro would be an amazing thing. I tremble at the thought of the system requirements though.

I think it looks god damn amazing and will be picking it up ASAP for the PC. That table scene and the family is definitely ripped right from TCM though but that's not a bad thing.

Definitely puts the resident evil in resident evil and can appreciate this new direction since they kicked the bucket to survival horror in favor of action action action since four.

Bad games got worse! Who would have thought that would happen if developers are giving out keys for positive reviews?

Not that it really bothers me though since most of the games on this list are cancerous indie titles which have over run Steam. I saw a Toad hobbling along on the yard earlier today and I think I cared more about it than anything on this list.

News Comments > Steam Review Changes to Fight Fraud
13. Re: Steam Review Changes to Fight Fraud Sep 13, 2016, 11:26 Wallshadows
 
I don't really see an issue especially since they're still being included. Games are still going to be either good or bad regardless of where you bought them from and if you are in the business of reading reviews rather than going off of numbers then you're really not missing out on anything.

If anything, this might slow the flood of terrible indie games because of bullshit developer tactics. It's not like No Man's Sky will go from 35% to 90% either.

Picked up the two-pack from Steam. I remember pirating Dead Space a long time ago but never gave it much of a chance for some reason. I do remember it being skin-crawlingly creepy though.

I'll play it.... sometime.

it's clear that the developers behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided have a lot of optimizing to do for Radeons before the game's DirectX 12 mode goes gold in a week and change.

That's pretty god damn hilarious seeing as how AMD and Eidos Montreal were practically in bed with each other during development.

There's something to be said about DX12 titles launched under the Square Enix banner though and I'm more inclined to blame the developer for half-assing it since they're ultimately responsible for implementing DX12.

I always gush over new seasons especially when it's from either an expansion or mini-expansion but I simply cannot put any time in to this at the moment. Right now, Legion has me by the balls since I'm still deciding on a main so I'm partially leveling each one I might like and any time left over is going in to Deus Ex and then any time after that is going to Fallout 4.

I'll find out what the hype is by the time the next PoE expansion hits at this rate.
