Modern CRT's (yes, they existed) were not curved and were, by the way, so vastly superior to early LCD tech that it was beyond baffling. Well, weight and size aside.

Curved monitor is good for games but the FOV you have when sitting in front of a screen isn't gonna improve with a wider screen. As someone else said, the optical issue with 2 curved screen is that you have no flat surface and a gap in the middle. For gaming this is entirely worthless, as your aim would always be between the gaps

With PCARS it feels like this an engine issue though. From what I understand, only way you gonna see good VR performance on modern gpu's is with a pure Vulcan or DX12 engine. Backported VR to DX10/11 or even OpenGL will be a disaster unless your engine is already extremely well performing

No Manís Sky allegedly wiping early user discoveries from playÖ

Debunked


I named EVERYTHING on my first planet. Only 1 animal remains with a name I gave it. Explanation? I don't accept "You weren't connected" as I spent 3 days there and the planet is still named.

It's their way to simulate the experience of an Alzheimer patient.. so... a feature!

Xcom in a No Man Skyeeee thread?

To be honest, as long as it's clear this data is not 100% accurate (but it is actually kinda accurate ,p) I see no issue here. And Publishers don't have any case here. These are public numbers, anyone can gather them. (only we already have steamspy, so why bother)

I can't really say for sure but that would depend on the specific design decision and if you think it's bad. Maybe you're talking about the "space lanes" how the systems are connected on the map? Well I think that's a good idea, gives the map some strategic and tactical possibilities.

But also means every warp into enemy space is a battle against a space station + more ships than you can bring into the battle

ok so min fps is 24 max is 31.

change a bunch of settings... same thing.... change more settings same thing.....


BTW how fucking hard is it to have a player shadow in 1st person view?!? I feel like Peter Pan/Vampire standing in a doorway with a light source behind me, everything has shadows except me.

That's really hard since first person in most games disables your mesh so nothing clips that shouldn't...

Vive probably more attractive to devs cuz hand contollers.

They should rename that to "Splintering the community pack"

Because that is what it is doing. fucking paying for maps, AGAIN? After the BF4 disaster with their expansions? You know what this will result in, 3 maps will be popular, from the vanilla game, and nobody plays any of the other modes or maps... sigh

Got nothing to do with NBC, IOC forbids replaying full events after they are concluded, you gotta pirate them. And yes, that is retarded as fuck.

It's also not true. I still had a TV subscription in 2012 and watched old events all throughout those two weeks on nbcolympics. Furthermore, NBC typically repeats almost all of its daily coverage after 12am.

The IOC is objectively terrible, but this is purely desperate cablecoms trying to maintain their dead and buried business model.

At least here in Germany, there was no way to subscribe to anything that lets you rewatch full olympic events (with qualifiers..) so you were lucky ^^

I've yet to see a single micro-transaction in the game, so if people are annoyed by them, they are literally going out of their way to do so.

Now the fucking intro videos on the other hand... FUCK the asshole who made those unskippable.

Indeed..

Btw, I have no idea how people play this in 25 hours, there is no way they did all side missions. I play on highest difficulty and I (think) I am like, 70% done, at 30 hours. And I still have a few side missions to do and the challenge at this point is substantial due to a certain *event* that happens.

No I take that back, my highest difficulty first playthrough, pacifist, took exactly 24 hours and 32 minutes.. oh well Can't say the ending was bad though. And this lines up pretty nicely to Deus EX (the original!) including backstory how and where the NFS came from, Manderly, Bob Page and all the historical connections to how the Denton project came to be. Imo only people who never played the original can consider this a bad ending.

So far the only thing I have to bitch about are these 3 things
1) DLC model is retarded, but aside from 2 praxis kits, nothing you get there is relevant for a non lethal playthrough.
2) Those intro movies ~.~
3) The wonky as fuck "grabbing a ledge" and "jump" function...

Aside that fun game

I wanted to watch (some of) them. I went to NBCOlympics, and tried to watch old stuff. I understand that without a TV subscription, I can't watch anything live, that's fine. But it wouldn't let me watch any old stuff without a subscription either.

Okay, NBC. Then I just won't watch anything. Apparently in your retarded world, that's better than having an extra viewer. Keep protecting your dwindling TV subscribers base, eventually you'll price your shit so high that everyone will just cancel, and you'll be left with no income. Have fun.

You never wondered why you never see full recasts of olympia in the late hours on obscure channels? Even finding full event recordings for older Olympics is a pain in the ass because of the IOC being dickheads.

Interesting story, Zenimax. Do you have any proof?

If there were no truth to it then Zenimax would be pretty daft to pull this. Imo it makes a lot of sense though when you look back at how quickly Palmer rushed in the arms of Facebook. I doubt Facebook was the only investor that put a bid in.

It brings up an interesting point. If someone says they played for 20+ hours and it was "horrible" was it really that bad?


The answer is YES If anything I'd rather take his opinion than that of someone who only played it 2hrs and refunded. Not because either are invalid, but because to understand how truly utterly flawed NMS is you have to actually see it in its entirety first.

Well hello Mr. Mid-2000s BWM interior designer! I would like to let you know that I despised your retina destroying death beam instrument panels.



Yeah, but they have to be visible during daylight too Blame em for not having a dimmer... but the idea in general was correct. Red light is not making you night blind. I mean, assuming you still have a retina

Eh, I would never buy a GPU that needs 500W.. I mean for fucks sake, how you gonna COOL that?

AMD is already in the practice of installing liquid cooling on their top end products. I would suspect we'd see more widespread use of it with larger radiators.

Liquid cooling might cool the card, but it sure doesn't cool everything else around it. Even with liquid cooling you still end up with heat worth 500W in your case or worse, in your gaming room.

Would be a scorching proposition in summer.
