Trying to imagine how this could have looked had it been demoed on some decent PC hardware (and not an x garbage box)....

News Comments > Starpoint Gemini Warlords Released

I've played versions 0.90x and experienced serious graphical glitches (horrible frame rate drops during combat) and all of a sudden they said: we're getting ready for release.
Last time I checked (0.904) that bug was fixed but the game felt incomplete and had balancing issues.

Anyway, it's 1.0 now and I'll give it another shot, starting from scratch.

That's what I call "thorough and deep" beta testing.

Yup. Those are clear signs of final stage consolitis.... PC gamers be warned.

ME3 isn't on Steam either, presumably for the same reason.

Game still isn't available here on Steam (central Europe). I even searched for it. Nothing. It's not even mentioned.

Not that I cared much because there is nothing I despise more in a game than paid micro-transactions, and MEA has them all...

Extremely problematic that 1st amendment rights don't apply at the border. ACLU needs to get on that.

Not problematic at all- if you avoid the USA as your travel destination (I did after the TSA made me miss a flight for one last time). Kinda problematic if you're American. Just change your own rules if you don't like them...

Interesting article about Ryzen. So, the patch won't make it really competitive when it comes to gaming? It is not just Microsoft's fault? No patch will make Ryzen great again?

Just kidding. Ryzen offers quite some performance for the asked price, but for those with deeper pockets, intel is still the first choice.

Yes, the patch will make a difference, don't expect a quantum leap though.

No, it's nobody's "fault". It was AMD's decision to make Ryzen a 2 x CCX design. Windows 10 only needs to be aware of this design, currently it isn't.

In the best case for Ryzen the OS is aware of its 2 x CCX design AND the code is optimized for such a design (certain pro applications are but I doubt the same can be said about games).

News Comments > New GeForce Drivers and GTX 1080 Ti Reviews
42. Re: New GeForce Drivers and GTX 1080 Ti Reviews Mar 10, 2017, 06:27 Lord Tea
 
The only thing we (or NV) knows about VEGA performance is rumors.

I was somewhat surprised about how "low" NV set the price for the 1080 Ti*. On 2nd thought it's quite obvious that this is all about profit maximization and NOT competition.

With their Titan line of products, released right between "regular new generation" and "Ti" NV caters to the very high end crowd. Essentially, they can ask whatever price they want. To keep the cash train from slowing the Ti is released, at the same time they lower prices for 1070/1080. Titan performance is delivered for much less $ to another select crowd of buyers (e.g. those who own a 980 Ti, who said the gap to a 1080 isn't worth upgrading and also said the Titan is too expensive).

Without competition (and there is none) this business model is extremely powerful. It's also reflected in NV's stock.

*For the record, I'd never pay $699 for a video card. I don't think VEGA is as dead as some might think. Yes, it's delayed and there's a good chance it might be slower than NV's high end stuff. But it will be cheaper and still be a very decent performer.

And with that, VEGA is looking pretty dead. Those benches look pretty mind-blowing, first 4k able GPU, but still a genereation away from driving 4K ultra settings, and 2 generations at least, for VR at 4K .. sigh.

I take it you've some insight on VEGA's performance. Please enlighten us.

I watched the presentation last night. Faster than the Titan X Pascal. Insane.

That's NV's way of f'ing $1200 Titan X owners in the rear.

Learned from my GTX 970 (neutered but still doing its job) purchase and will keep waiting for VEGA to drop.

News Comments > On Sale
3. Re: On Sale Feb 12, 2017, 04:00 Lord Tea
 
Not recommended. Not even at this price point. RG is an endless grind.

You waste a lot of your time going from A to B, then looking for/collecting objects, repetitive dogfights, then going back from B to A (A being some space station, B is somewhere far away from that space station). Repeat this procedure 5-10 times and you have the cash to upgrade your MK-1 laser to a MK-2 laser that has slightly better stats and looks exactly the same.

Game saves automatically and only when docked at a station.

Enemies have unlimited ammo, you don't (and you will run out of missiles FAST).

New ships only come with more weapon slots, they look different but feel exactly the same.

BORING.

Trump signs 'no privacy for non-Americans' order ...

Waste of time. This order has been in effect for ages and even the EU is/was perfectly aware of that, quoting from the article "The US Privacy Act has never offered data protection rights to Europeans."

... what does that mean for rest of us?

Why do you care now?

Seems to be pretty deep, and pretty expensive too. Wishlisted.

It might also be worth keeping an eye on Endless Space 2.

*EDIT* Ugh, Fig, yet another crowdfunding platform. Oh well, I'll still contribute.

Oh well, I won't.

Because
1) There is no reason to do this on Fig instead of Kickstarter which worked just fine for the first game.

2) I'm not willing to give away my CC info to yet another crowdfunding platform for, maybe, a single pledge.

3) Once fully funded the game will be available for purchase at STEAM/GOG anyway.
