VR is not a fad. It's just a question of whether this iteration of VR picks up steam (lol) or not. As the tech shrinks and becomes more power efficient its just going to become more popular.

She can afford not to be paid for 3 months, other artists cannot. She definitely had a stake in it but the benefit to other artists is significant.

They've made $10mil in revenue so far. The founder basically said the game has at least covered initial expenses though which is good. The remaining cash will have to keep them going while they finish it and work on other projects. Hopefully the game has a long life span.

Do you guys here still have a wallet with paper money? All I can find in mine (in terms of money) is 7 2Ä coins, 3 1Ä coins, and a EC card +.+

Haven't actually needed paper money in quite a while.

I still deal mostly with cash for everyday expenses as I find it makes me a bit more cost conscious. There are some things I use a CC for like online orders of course.

As far XP goes that's simply not true. You got xp for sneaking around and finding non-aggressive alternate routes.

The problem is that certain actions rewarded more XP than others. For example, non-lethal takedowns offered more XP than lethal takedowns. You also got more XP for being stealthy than for running and gunning. Finally, you got XP for hacking, even if you already knew the keycode. The end result? The optimal playstyle was the stealthy, non-lethal ninja hacker. True ghosting (sneaking around undetected and without neutralizing anyone) wasn't rewarded at all.

The original DX handled XP rewards better. You got XP for completing quests and exploring. That's it. No one playstyle was encouraged over another. I was hoping they'd do the same for DX:MD but it looks like that isn't the case.

Agreed. A more equal split of XP rewards is definitely called for, HR had some really weird stuff going on where it felt like they wanted you to do certain play styles regardless of what the environment was presenting you.

We donít have to take advice from anybody anymore. We were wrong. Everybody whom we consulted with on Sunset was wrong.

It's worth noting that their main consultant was Leigh "Gamers are dead. Gamers don't have to be your audience." Alexander, Alcoholic and SJW.

Seems like if you want to actually make some money selling a PC game, gamers DO have to be your audience!

Hahaha that figures. I hate to see any dev fail but its a business and they misread their audience. They don't deserve antagonism but they don't deserve sympathy either, shit happens.

Am I the only one finds most of this argument rather contrived? Used to be when an expansion released that included the base game, the company was praised for it.

Since when is $50 for an expansion not the norm? How many of the people going ape shit over this used to pay $180 a year for WoW + $50 (or more) for a bi-yearly expansion and never had a second thought about the cost of it all?

I guess it depends on the content involved with the expansion and if it warrants a $50 price tag for someone who already bought the game. I understand it for someone who is coming in fresh and gets both the game + expansion but the pricing seems weak for the expansion alone as an upgrader. That's just my surface comment without doing more digging anyway.

Some people seem to equate free speech with the right to offend without facing consequences.

Some people seem to equate free speech with the right to offend without facing consequences. I'm older so when i say something i'm always ready and willing to assume the consequences no matter how extreme they may be.

Sure, we have a few trolls on the boards who could use a lesson in facing the consequences for their toxic behavior but such is life. Disagreed on the latter. The flipside of that though is some people think that anything that offends them should be immediately changed and that they deserve some sort of recompense. Sometimes you just get offended by something and have to live with it.

The game isn't even out yet, I'm not going to judge how its used until I see how its handled in the proper context. I don't think they have to be sensitive to anyone or anything either, marketing is often controversial and I don't think this is crossing any lines.

This marketing spin AMD has been doing with "great for 4K gaming!!!" is pretty retarded. The 390X is not suited for 4K and the added 4GB of vram is essentially useless since the card doesn't have the muscle anyway, you need a dual card solution at that point.
That crap AMD pulled with KitGuru was disappointing to read about too. They basically yanked his review sample because of "negative coverage of the 300 series". How is he supposed to cover another set of rebadged cards? It is what it is. That's some shit I would expect from Nvidia.

The Fury X is the only compelling card in the line up and even then why do I want a video card that barely competes with a 980 Ti, is priced similarly and needs a rad mount?

Statistically obesity is very closely linked with poverty in developed countries (and even in a lot of undeveloped ones). The problem is, as many have already hinted at, once again, money.

Cheap food + Culture of Self-Indulgence = Fat Fucks.

America will eat itself to death, long before it gets swallowed up by the Ruskies, or some Imaginary Communists, or those pesky Brown People from the Desert.

You are your own worst enemies. (Not that this is strictly related to just nutritional problems. Also I don't want to be hypocritical, this goes for my country too, and probably 90% of so called western 'democracies'.)

Euros aren't getting any skinnier man

I think America will be just fine, health education is starting to penetrate more thanks to the internet. These things just take time, after 30 years of super sized meals and drinking pop like water you don't just flip a switch for a nation. There's a reason companies like McDonalds keep declining, people are seeking healthier choices.

Looks like still has the same problems as HR, like giving XP for every little thing you do. You get 10-20xp for each enemy you KO/kill, but if you ghost past them presumably you get nothing. Not surprising, since their definition of ghosting is KOing every enemy.

And the hacking minigame is back, so I guess half of all the augs will be devoted to that again.

I still enjoyed DX:HR despite those small problems so meh. When it comes to this style of game I'll take what I can get and what I got from HR was a lot of enjoyment.

My girlfriends mother is a vet who sometimes gets called out by the county to look at stuff like that when they get trapped animals and etc. I texted her the pic and she said its probably a tumor, apparently there is a lot of fibromatosis in animals in the wild.

Right below that he says:

Howard went on to stress that, while much of Fallout 4's world is bright and colorful, a section of the Fallout 4 map--where the bomb fell--will be a dark and dreary place, as you might expect.

I think he's just talking about having more environmental variety instead of endless mountains of grey/brown drabness which is fine by me. A lot of those limitations were resource related anyway and its a bigger setting this time so it makes sense. The world is a colorful place and there's no reason it can't continue to be that even in a post apocalyptic setting.

So long as they don't overdo it I don't see a problem. New Vegas wasn't really hurt by it.
