I want it to be good, but... this is a WH40k game we are talking about. And "Founders campaign" makes me relive certain nightmares related to other Wh40k projects.

I'm still not falling for it though, this franchise is long dead and the game itself is a bad joke - NMA FO4 Review.

You're going to post a review of Fallout 4 by the users of NMA? That's like asking Karl Rove to critique Bernie Sanders' campaign. You may find nuggets of truth in there, but the sheer disgust by the reviewer of the material will mean there's pretty much no chance of the work being objective.

Mhh, I find that review to be pretty accurate .. bad world design is bad world design, no matter who puts that into words. The story and characters in Fallout 4 are about the most inane things Bethesda has produced, and that includes Skyrim, which is even more absurd.

Min reqs:

OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Processor: Intel Core i7-5820K or better
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: GTX 1080 8GB
Storage: 58 GB available space

Seriously? Wtf is even the point of releasing these with those sorts of reqs as a minimum?

If you got 4gb vram and a SSD (though 120gb (Yes, 120gb!)... that is hard to swallow) you can use this. The reqs are total BS, as usual. Before they edited them they even showed a yet unreleased ATI card. ^^

PPs.: If noise becomes a big problem you should consider legal action and DOCUMENTATION. I have never heard of a city that takes documented and video proof of serious noise violations after 10pm not extremely serious indeed.

Did that too. Provided my city's Animal Control a detailed log representing weeks of infractions plus two audio recordings of 30+ minutes each. Their response to all my evidence and I quote: "You will need to have the involvement of another neighbor who will participate in the abatement process before your complaint can be completed." It's almost like they are treating me as the guilty party and the burden of proof is on me. I don't understand how getting another resident involved somehow makes the proof legit beyond the detailed logs and audio recording I provided. I'm the one at ground zero of this fury terrorist. I'm suffering the most. I also feel like I have a case against the city for dereliction of duty. Not enforcing some sort of noise control law at 1:30 AM goes WAY beyond animal control issues.

I feel with you, but in my city here in Germany noise ordnance is pretty heavily enforced, I called police once and they came within 20 minutes and muted the noise. But that was a human... for dogs, it'd have to go through animal control for sure, but they'd be forced to act if noise violation is regularly against the city noise ordnance. So I am confused why the city doesn't act in your case, you 100% sure no other neighbor in that entire area is gonna co-sign your complaint?

If that is such a weird ordnance where you live, I would think about literally paying a neighbor to come with me to file that complaint. I can't believe that none of them are bothered, but they might not think something comes of this, and thus might consider it a waste of time.

Apparently, I have no social life and I'm totally out of what's trending. What does "I-borhood" mean? Google gives no results.

You're not. It's a neighborhood where everyone only cares about themselves and their well-being, and are not responsive to helping others. Thus the "I" borhood. I came up with it.

We normal people call that a gentrified hell hole Thankfully my neighbors are not annoying like that, dogs don't bark (like nearly ever) and cats are mindful of sleeping hours for the most part. But yeah, I feel like people become more and more egocentric and stop thinking about what their actions might have an impact on others. Previous neighbors were drinking huge amounts of alcohol every day, at night... meh

Can't say the same about a flock of magpies who one year bred in the tree that's right across from my sleeping window. And this year I've got a sizeable group of blackbirds making quite some racket, or rather, causing racket with all the other flying things around.

TL;DR, birds more annoying than humans here, I consider that a huge blessing. Slow internet on the other hand isn't such a huge blessing. But yeah, rather slow internet than an iborhood.

Ps.: Neighbors.. already has it in the name.. neigh!

The forgotten API: just what is going on with DX12

It doesn't help that the anticipated performance boost vs. DX11 is no where near as claimed... even on AMD, which actually shows some improvement over DX11, vs. nVidia.

Vulkan is probably the future since it covers more than Windows devices.

It's because of a hen-egg problem. As long as games aren't pushing the single core restricted threads to the limits there will be no advantage to use Vulkan or DX12, but if you USE this advantage, then everyone without DX12 will have bad performance. So it has to be optional, and if it is optional then there is 0 real advantage to even bother using it. It will give you higher FPS on a high-end rig, but it won't do a damn thing if you are not CPU limited.

Point being, let's check this again in 3 years from now... but I doubt it'll gain any traction as long as MS is being a total asshole about W10 privacy/patching policy.

Reading up on VR lenses made me realize we now have aftermarket prescription lense inserts for both Rift and Oculus, which means this just needs to get pushed to Gen2 (aka, lighter, better image) and I will jump into the fray as well ;p If my VR device had my lens needs already inside then I wouldn't need glasses, and that would add a shit ton of extra comfort.

Thankfully new screens are already in development.

The source engine really did not age well... Action HL1 was pretty cool, never got into Action HL2. Source engine, despite being made for FPS, really did never feel like a good FPS engine to me (sloppy feeling, shitty recoil.. just nope)

I don't see RPG's back in a big way.. when we look forward, what do we really have? Torment 2 and PoE2, I guess, and Mass Effect 4. And aside that?

Shadowrun, Divinity: Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity are all quite decent RPG's in the old school style.

Played them all though, hence "look forward" I even kickstarted D:OS 2 and PoE... But to be fair, my gaming focus is pretty heavily towards story driven RPG's.. hence why I wonder what is coming aside from those 3 I mentioned... (I consider D:OS 2 a thing already, because I already played it, but I guess that's only for backers)

Are there any other RPG's upcoming I overlooked?

Heh. Is this the first time a company has killed their official servers in favor of user-hosted servers? Usually it's the other way around :)

7500 private servers. 7499 are pirated copies.

Probably not far from the truth, but the game is still early access no? Would consider that 7498 demos +1 hardcore pirate I guess From what I am reading on steam, game is even nearly unplayable currently, tons of game-breaking bugs.

For me, Witcher 3 spoiled all other RPGs. The quest design was above and beyond anything else. Playing PoE after W3 was a sad affair.

To be honest there aren't many modern RPGs that measure up to W3+Addon, but W3 also does not have a party or custom avatar, which is a big factor for me. I guess we'll see how Torment 2 turns out, that they reduce companions to flesh out the ones they have makes me far happier than it should, mainly because of PoE1 and how that was handled there.

But yeah, after playing quite a few "great" RPG's it's really hard to be hyped about things coming the next few months. Torment 2 is a must-by for me, obviously, but will I really enjoy it? I wonder....

I haven't played a truly great RPG in quite a while. I am dabbling in a BG2 playthrough with heavy mods, which gave me new appreciation of some of the gameplay in that (And newfound hate for DnD rules regarding saving throws)

But if I wanted to find a really good RPG I haven't yet played I'd need a time machine.

DS9/Voyager reasons for no HD are the same case as Babylon 5... All the effects composites are all done at NTSC resolution. Unlike TOS and TNG, none of the shows probably warrant the amount of budget required to create HD versions, especially since DS9 and Voyager started using CG for ships and such, it would require a massive amount of work.

It disappoints me still today that I'll only ever have bad quality Babylon 5 DVDs. The quality will look great for some of the shots (the ones with no effects), then turn to grainy low res for the composite/effect shots. It's especially bothersome when its cutting back and forth between two closeups while people talk and one is perfect and the other is crap.


One thing I can tell you as 3d artist is that those cost claims are wild if they had actually 35mm source, but NTSC sources, you can basically throw everything away and redo it, it would be a lot cheaper.

It also bothers me hugely because NTSC isn't even a global standard and NTSC <-> PAL conversion was already a nightmare for B5 and Voyager even when that just aired in PAL TV. (it looked horrible sometimes) and nowadays, with HD tv's, these 2 shows did NOT age well visually. B5 in particular has atrociously low quality CGI, to the point where it's really just blurry blobs.

Anyone else annoyed by this growing trend of entertainment media that uses what might be considered controversial themes feeling like they have to put in a PSA disclaimer?

To be honest I find the themes touched here neither of these things ,) Fantasy monsters, boring office rooms and blurry DOF does not make down-to-earth psychological thriller. Reading the steam reviews is more elevating than anything this game offers, but for the 1st real game of this developer it's a decent effort, it is however not a decent horror game. Especially not compared to the behemoth next to it, the slightly mediocre but otherwise pretty decent RE7

We actually have absolutely zero truly controversial titles on Steam. None of them touching anything of fundamental import. Unless you call that mediocre top-down shooter with brutality as it's "thing" controversial.. when it was just laughable over the top and absurd

There was maybe that 1 historical accurate game with the asylum, the name escapes me, that was (to me) shocking on a fundamental level, because I had truly no idea that situations in Italy during that time were this utterly nightmarish for just slightly "odd" personalities in psychiatric facilities

But aside that? Controversial things on Steam? Nah...
