"The Ananta, an all-female beast tribe, is the newest of the beast tribes to be introduced to the world of FFXIV. This ancient tribe resides in the mountains near Ala Mhigo and worships the primal Lakshmi. Known for their skill in spell and gemcraft, the Lamia will play a very important role in the Stormblood main scenario as their persecution by the Garlean Empire is revealed."

You know what I do in games I often play ? options -> music off.... if it's good ambience then obviously not, but it buggers me to all hells and back when especially building games have like 5 tracks that ALWAYS REPEAT. And what is maybe acceptable for 20m, is not ok for 200h

While it is nice to have an extended quiet weekend, it does seem like the lack of news in general (with everyone off) is a little maddening...

I'm sure we'll get back to the crazy and announcements in general pretty soon...


Plenty of non gaming news for my taste, and none of them good ;/

Still don't get why AMD is so hung up on HBM2... considering no benchmark showed any benefit of it.

Also ETS 2 under sit back and relax? WTF? Nobody who voted that ever did a long distance delivery with traffic on.

I think I voted for ETS2 there, I think it's very relaxing. Granted, I was never too bothered about the occasional crash or speeding ticket.

I was going to vote for ETS2 too, but I think ATS is a much better game. Nothing more relaxing than driving in Nevada with some country music playing.

You guys must have some iron man like nerves, the AI drivers in ETS2 drive me insane But then I realize I would also be a horribly potty mouthed truck driver in reality. ^^

News Comments > Steam Top 100 of 2016

Speaking of the Division, there was a sale for it, I bought it.. and after 10 hours or so I absolutely and totally hate this game. It is not just a totally mediocre game, but it is an ABYSMAL loot based cover shooter. Even Gears of War 1, yes, the shitty console port from yonder, is a flat out superior combat experience.

Top it off with korean and chinese players ONLY and you got a recipe for total COOP disasters, half the players can't even write basic english words.

The graphics are fantastic, but everything else about this game is shit. Damn, I should have skipped this one....

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.

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.

Creston wrote on Dec 30, 2016, 12:44:
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.

"Windows 10" and "Enhanced PC gaming experience" are not phrases that exist in the same universe. Nothing MS does with PC gaming ever enhanced anything.

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?
