My Goty for 2017 is Nier:Automata ^^

Thinking more about it, it would be a close tie with Pyre

I actually enjoyed that hour.... needs tons of polish and optimization, but the base is there, and this 1 hour had more in 1 hour than Elite Dangerous has as entire gameplay.

Yeah, I cut cable back in 2003, and my kids have almost never been exposed to commercials. On the rare occasions when they have, they get really irritated at them.

Can proudly say that I can count the hours of wasted life the past decade on advertisement in TV/Movies on 1 hand... and on the web even less.

Whatever future space game is out there will have to deal with the same limitations and issues that Egosoft has to deal with in balancing fun gameplay with 'realism' and the strain of simulating a living universe. I'm not placing bets on anyone until I see something concrete.

Well I will never disagree with you on that, see it, play it, and then judge it. But Egosoft doesn't exactly have a good track record with releases, everything they ever released was a total mess on day 1

Where I live, enrolling someone in a contract change without specific agreement (signed!) makes that contract null and void.... I'd love my ISP to do that, hehe, but I guess German ISP's aren't THAT retarded.

The GPU W10x64 driver ships with around 100mb of 32bit dll/exe files (of 440mb)

Don't ask my why, because I for sure have no clue why that could possibly be. But the impact on reducing bloat would be quite large
Won't make any difference. Because those dll's and whatnot that are included in the x64 package are for backwards compatibility for titles that don't support x32-x64. GPU's are significantly different in this process then CPU's, GPU's have no internal translation engine, CPU's do.

All this has to do with is EoL pure 32bit support for 32bit OS's.

Ah... Well I guess that would be a really ballsy move by Nvidia not to support any 32bit game hehe So only compatible check, nothing actually to do with 32bit or 64bit platforms... or basically. PR move?
No. Like MA said the 32 bit OS is EOL.

I got that. I just worded my reply weirdly due to lack of coffee ^^

I guess no bloat reduction ,P

This should reduce driver bloat by some amount.. hopefully

Would it, if there are already separate downloads for 32-bit and 64-bit versions? I remember what really bloated it up to what it is now was when they decided to make one 'International' package instead of several different ones for individual languages.

but come on you're just being ridiculous.

Of course I am We are going far off tangent and this is a fun thing to talk about.

Ps.: I played Dishonored 1 and 2 and Deus EX MD/HR 100% non lethal. I also played each game 100% lethal (killing everyone, not just the target) and found 1) the latter is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more fun and 2) It's also way easier

Fair enough, you can path a fun 100% stealth non lethal run in Dishonored 2 too.... but only if you employ speed-running tech, with "normal" gameplay it takes forever and is no fun. in WD2 you can not play 100% non-lethal. Literally, you can't. Due to how mission stats work when you fail, running over 1 dog counts as kill forever and many a knocked down guard can STILL die later in the mission due to scripted things (cars coming in, particularly). Something Deus EX doesn't do for example...

I simply think that a game about domestic terrorism shouldn't be this utterly tone deaf about it! Especially not in this day and age.

Still need to hear lot of good word of mouth, though. Rebirth burned me badly (especially since I bought it directly from them because I wanted to support them, so couldn't get a Steam refund...) What a fucking kick in the teeth that game was.


Exactly aside from the Rebirth disaster and the refund issue (And no, 4.0 is not in any way a better game than the release version), the far bigger problem is that the entire setting makes zero sense from a sci-fi point of view.

See -> Interstellar Empires (Youtube)

And the older I get the more I am appalled how lazily this setting was written. You could do better and maybe not have FTL... as that would condense your entire story to a solar system with a few billion hugely diverse dyson swarm habitats.. but no...

I think I see your issue. You want to play the X games for something aside from the huge sandbox they offer.

Let me break it down for you.

X games have low quality story telling, shallow characters and forgettable plots. No one gives a shit.

X games have a huge variety of ships to fly, stations to build, missions to do, stuff to discover, great sandbox gameplay and are very moddable. People give a shit about that.

Nah, I don't care about plot in X games certainly would never expect much of it, I care about the general setting (races, technology, political landscape) and general design though, especially after having watched shows like The Expanse

X4 looks to be a lazy addon to Rebirth, and Egosoft will NEVER get any of my money ever again after the Rebirth refund scam they pulled on people who bought directly. It will be a 2 hour test play on Steam of course, but if I had to name the game I am waiting for it would be Anno 1800 and most certainly not X4, and what the bearded birds are singing from the roofs, expect a new space sandbox to be announced sometime soonish that will blow your mind in ways X4 will never be able to It starts with an H....

Either way, I think you would be surprised how many people actually do care about setting of a space game even if that space game is a sandbox.... if they didn't they would play Minecraft.... and while I don't want a space opera from Egosoft (They could never do that) I certainly want a cohesive and believable fake universe to play and build in...
