How does Witcher 3 not win Game Within A Game? I mean we're comparing tennis & golf mini-games with GWENT!

Look at the games that won, and despair. For that is the current generation of gamers. Also ETS 2 under sit back and relax? WTF? Nobody who voted that ever did a long distance delivery with traffic on.

Which of the 55.3 million or so dead people this year would you want to be spared? And do you really want to have a god-emperor sitting on a golden throne?
we soon will, he just has small small hands

Well that is an upgrade from the WH40k one

i saw an HDR game on an HDR TV... the blacks are so good, it's like the TV looks as if it's completely turned off on the parts of the screen that are black.

Not just HDR; sounds like you saw an OLED screen.

yeah HDR isn't gonna fix shitty black levels. fyi that's how OLED works - each pixel is its own light source. no constantly on backlight to bleed through, so when it's off, it's truly giving off no light. so yeah, probably he saw an OLED screen.

oh yea, that's probably it then... we were testing out HDR at the game company that i work for and got to see it there on a build with HDR features patched in

i'd love an OLED computer monitor with HDR one day but it's going to really mainly be a console thing if they're only going to have this HDR feature exclusively on TVs and not monitors

OLED is still not achieving anywhere near the production yields required for mass production of desktop screens sadly ;( That is also why the costs are so insane.

I agree with the skepticism for the insane decisions of a Duke Nukem re-release and charging an absolutely hilarious $60 for an HD remake of a game that nobody bought the first time around, but Gearbox is working on Borderlands 3 (by their own admission), and they and 2K know that it will sell millions and millions of copies, plus many more millions of DLCs.

They're going nowhere.

That said, after Borderlands 2, they've done Aliens:CM, Battleborn, Duke Nukem Forever, Duke 3d re-release, Borderlands pre-sequel and a Bulletstorm re-release. That's five pretty bad releases and one so-so release in a row. They really need to hit it out of the park with Borderlands 3, and I think that means more than just making four new characters with essentially the same set of powers and some new maps.

I like your optimism. But I have played Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. I have zero faith that this team can build Borderlands 3 and not make it an atrocious horrible experience. (you know, because Gearbox didn't make the pre-sequel, nearly nobody still works there (at Gearbox proper) who worked on Borderlands 2)

If I am wrong then good, because I think Borderlands could be a far better game But Gearbox is a very confusing developer imo. The release list signed under their name reads like the who is who of crap and garbage, but in reality Gearbox itself only made 1 game since Borderlands 2, and that is far worse. Because that means Gearbox sustained itself with Borderlands 2 sales ALONE.

And yeah, the 60 Bulletstorm "remaster" is just sad. But I won't fault a company for trying to stay alive.

Won't happen. They are just patenting an idea. Like the drone thing.

But if you merge the 2, you have floating drone hives, and I could think of quite a few uses for these...

On the other hand, I don't think this is something they plan to do for heavy objects or the like, but for small light parts it would make sense to collect an entire cities orders, load them to the drone blimp, and then fly it there from the warehouse... it would reduce costs.. at some point, and if they manage to build them without drones constantly falling from the sky...

Why are they showing the Commodore 64 version?

LOL, yes the graphics could be better, but FTL was good despite its low res graphics.

FTL was top-down and had high-res pixel art... this looks like someone discovered Clonk and decided to not hire an artist... (Clonk a game made 1994 !) and.. well, google it. it looked vastly better. (That SS from OpenClonk though)

Anyway, 10 is enough of a price to ask for better 2D art than just blurry pixels... I kinda like games like these, but I would prefer a proper top-down one, where decks matter, where paths matter, where projectile penetration, armory position and all that stuff mattered.

Essentially, I want Wh40k'ish space battles.. top down, but in HQ 3d with light and fire, particles, gore and stuff, with realistic damage modeling, realistic deformation, physics....

Or maybe a build-your own submarine and fight it out against alien invaders simulation in 3D... this genre seems to be stuck in low quality graphics for some reason.

Favorite post from Incontentia Buttocks

"Hmmm...disabled HT, and 2 cores AND raise VCC to 2.0v.

"If we put a twin turbo on that 1.6l and throw a little NO2 into the mix she'll do 10 seconds in the quarter" Sadly the engine explodes after 5 seconds...."

Joke is, without HT and 2 cores, it's slower than before the OC

Star Citizen is simply not vaporware, and it should not be included on this list.

It is vaporware because the game pitched in 2012 isn't the same game they're working on today and it's not even remotely close to completion thanks to the massive scope creep. Letting people play an early alpha build isn't the same as releasing a finished product.

Vaporware is the opposite of something that is playable. Even if it only is an alpha test, which is better than shipping a product that is an Alpha *cough* NMS *cough* , no?

Holy crap, what is it with games not supporting SSE 4.1-less cpu's?! NMS and GTA5 both had this problem, as did DIRT Rally. They were all patched quickly and I'm not one that has this problem (Core i5/750) but still, wtf devs?


=-Rigs-=

When you code in high level IDE's with the clutch of tons of middleware it is probably very easy to include things you don't fully grasp the requirements of. And the fact that the Phenom II despite being one of the best CPU's AMD ever made lacked SSE 4.1 is not widely known, as the CPU is getting older, the problem will increase.

It's the primary reason I am hoping that Zen won't suck.

Well Deus Ex is back up, after a sluggish looking release. Still no Dishonored 2, which it seems conflicting. I've seen good reviews and complaints. Personally finding out there is no real story anymore (if what I've read is true) seems a huge disappointment. I still keep trying to avoid spoilers for both games but not sure how much longer that's possible. Also first choice would be to wait till they remove the new drm, but we'll see.

I'm not really sure why people keep complaining that there is no story any more, as it's basically exactly the same story from the first one.

That said, despite the fact that Dishonored 2 is as good as or better than Dishonored in every single area of the game, I'm not enjoying it as much. I've actually had to force myself to play it again over the past three days just so that I could finish it.

(I think for me the big issue is that the levels are just too big and you have no mini map. It took me like four hours to figure out the layout of the Dust level, and it just got really, really frustrating.)

And then, of course, the fact that six weeks after release, Harvey Smith & Co still can't be bothered to fix the retarded "the game takes three minutes to load to menu at random boot ups" and pretty terrible performance in open levels doesn't help it one bit. But hey, at least they had time to put in a New Game +, so now you can have ALL the powers to help with a game that is absolutely no challenge whatsoever...

Sigh

Meh I played it twice on "hard" (1x NewGame+) and I found it pretty damn challenging, but primarily because my first run was with Corvo high-chaos lethal and the levels were confusing.... and the 2nd play through aimed for ghost/pacifist/low-chaos with Emily... (difference between low/high chaos, and pacifist/lethal is pretty massive in terms of tone and ending) especially in the Dust / mansion level where you can even entirely miss an ENTIRE LEVEL.

The real issue is imo that the game feels a lot more buggy and slushy (dunno how to describe, entire movement and animation system fucking sucks) compared to Dishonored 1 which feels incredibly tight and responsive in comparision -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6K0dsK1eCqU

375MB, jesus game driver packages are getting pretty huge.

Not to mention that if you update regularly you have a few GB of unused old nvidia unpacked setups, on your system drive no less, each weighting a lofty 1gb... talk about wasting precious SSD space. And yes, 375 and 376 weigh unpacked 1gb! And the stupid setup does not delete the old driver folders. Meaning you will have quite a few of em here
C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver

Also check for installer2.

Hint: use the program Everything

Thanks for mentioning that, but Installer2 is at least overwritten by new setups... on a friends PC where I checked the Nvidia folder, he updates regularly due to GFE, he had like 20 folders, and deleting them except the current one cleared up over 15gb... so yeah

I have pointed him to a deletion app and set it up for him as xmas present

Happy xmas you all
