The ‘King of Kong’ could be stripped of his high score…

About time. Guy's high score vid had rules that only applied to him and was extremely skeezy.
What rules? this is calling him out about playing on an emulator and w/out the required checks and balances

All speed run categories have specific rules, he violated them and they made an exception ONLY for him. Ie. the scores are invalid.

It kills me that his game being a competitive game does not have VAC enabled in it. But a game like Sword Coast Legends that has no competitive multiplayer at all has VAC and killed the game because everyone was afraid to try and mod the game for fear of being VAC banned. Someone explain the logic in that!

Rumor has it that "no modding" was a GW licensing restriction, only the really big powerhouses like Sega can negotiate exceptions (Total War..)

That really sucks for him. Hires some escort he thinks is legit, manages to piss her off, and she narcs on him. But that's the risk you take when you're hiring a hooker. Unless and until that shit is legalized and has safety regulations, it's going to be a gamble. Not to mention there would be fewer underage prostitutes.
Legalization would only make sense, so that's never gonna happen.

*cough* Germany
This isn't even a crime here, like for real, not a single part of this story is a crime here. 16+ is considered adult and at that age if she lies about age you are never gonna be convicted for anything related to a child. A 16 year old is not a child.

Edit: No, I take that back, recording someone like he did is the actual crime here, gets you a decent "2 year" sentence, but no jail. Usually...

The effect on his life however will be far more severe, thanks to witch hunts
But she was 15 when the crime occurred.

Well it doesn't say that anywhere above, if she was 15 and he recorded it then he would get a big problem here.

Engine has a troubled history but the game looks decent even if there are shader issues and such that can be distracting.

I ran the benchmark and scored higher than a 1070ti with my old MSI factory overclocked 980ti:

https://imgur.com/7gohXCe

Coming close to being on par with the 1080 actually! I have optimized the shit out of this card and voltage modded it and such though. Nice to see how it's stacking up with the new blood ^.^

That's absolutely amazing for a 980ti ^^

One of the most awesome visual events by the way, is when he summons those ice ladies there and with Ansel things look absolutely stunning, freeze there with Ansel and look around, the detail level is absolutely bonkers amazing. Also you can find a few things when you Ansel around, one of the crypts for example with a weird glaive weapon on some sarcophagus. You can explore the entire loaded map area with Ansel, no restrictions to anything (although very little is actually loaded)... so that's pretty amazing. Haven't seen that in a game in like.. ever

Gotta admit that visually this game is extremely pretty. They just need to fix that AO and water. Water actually has some of the weirdest artifacts I have EVER seen in a game. Like when you look at one of the crocodile things in water in a 45° angle you can see that their reflection disappears in the middle but only some of it, like a broken occlusion check with shadow vs reflection. Really really strange visual bug. And I am sure fixable with FAR

3) There is no AA WHATSOEVER as in, NONE.

I'd argue that point. I ran the test in high, normal and low quality modes, and definitely saw less jagged edges in the high and normal modes than low, indicating there was AA on (unless toggling the ANSEL mode to look around turns that off).


Yeah I dunno what they do with that AA and AO implementation, but I think it's pretty clear this is some form of TxAA and SSAO, so if you hit a freeze on the frame you can not see any AA and as soon as frame moves, AO is getting sampled by TXAA and it flickers..... but to be honest I couldn't tell if the AA was from AA or from motion blur, the game is super blurry unless you freeze frame so it could be anything.

I guess my point is I saw tons of jaggies on high 1080p windowed and flickering nightmare AO in the grass.

What does "suspended his employment" mean? Has he been fired? I imagine he will be fired as soon as he is indicted, and he might be fired even if he is not. I find it interesting in how quickly everyone cuts their ties to someone even "suspected" of commiting a crime, don't get me wrong please Im not defending child molestors or criminals but I find that "innocent until proven guilty" is just a load of bullshit when it comes to real life.

"paid leave"

Btw, thanks everyone for clarifying, so basically this news is kinda crazy.

Arrested without charges?

I always thought, call me naive, that an arrest requires a warrant and a warrant requires a charge.... silly me, right?

It's a complex subject and varies from state to state but generally speaking, you can be held for up to 72 hours before prosecutors are forced to decide whether to charge/release you.

So can they release you on hour 73 and take you into custody again for 72 hours indefinitely? That seems ripe for exploitation...

To be honest after using ANSEL to look around I noticed various things

1) Water shaders are completely broken (Wavy outlines around characters)
2) AO is completely broken (Hope you like AO flickering, everywhere)
3) There is no AA WHATSOEVER as in, NONE.
4) HEAVY and extremely ugly low resolution DOF effect
5) HEAVY motion blur
6) Suuuuuuper low resolution foliage textures
7) The bench is apparently running without AF because I saw mip artifacts

So basically, I think this game needs not only a driver but also FAR + Special K

Performance is surprisingly bad in Ansel. And I think the reason is the borked post AO: To be perfectly honest, I think this is one of the worst AO implementations in a game in quite a while. I have flashbacks to Deus EX HR ^^

Btw, my 1070 got 6200 points on High at 1920x1080 but.. I play on 2560x1440 so this bench makes me already kinda worry... I guess I will be disabling some things ;p

Ps.: Heavy means heavy performance impact, much more than DOF and Motion blur should have.

I wonder if your morals and behaviors will be shunned or accepted in 50 years from now retrospectively..... the guy obviously did the right thing though. Because nobody with actual integrity should be tainted by a GDC award ^^

Pickles are supposed to be slowly cooked, which takes around 30 minutes same for the meat which you have to warm at 72°C after very very short frying them, and that right there is why I don't go to burger joints. You always get the cheapest made crap or rather the crap that they can make quickly. Yeah it may taste good, but it ain't good good.

Btw, I make my burgers with pickles, and slow cooking them is how you have to do it, doing them any other way makes for some really butt ugly pickles that taste like crap, or rather they don't taste like pickles (Which is the ONLY reason you add pickles, imo ;p)

Edit: Wonder what my spell check was doing but it didn't know slowcooking and turned into steam cooking
