Well this is certainly getting slammed for bad rally physics compared to Dirt Rally, which makes me wonder why to even bother with this one.

I still don't get wtf the point of curved screens is.

I just went down to check my wall where my TV is hung against, nope, flat surface. I looked at my couch. No, flat surface, not curved. I looked at my house, all flat surfaces. My desk? Flat surfaces

The way I see it, this is supposed to give you more side vision??? but at 1080p at 49" you will be able to literally count those pixels.

TL;DR, I don't get what curved screens are good for.

What the hell? This non-game's trailer is nominated for an Oscar, and that Dead Island trailer wasn't?

Sacrelige.

Or ANY of the Star Wars:The Old Republic trailers, all of which pretty much blew the actual films out of the water.

I mean, I know the Oscars are pretty much a joke anyway, but come on...

1x10 minute Alan Watts monologue that is properly framed with visuals and consistently absurd yet also endearing is worth an Oscar (nomination) though. ^^

Let's all just remember that SIN actually was a thing once, had a episodic game made, and promised it's buyers that there'd be 9 episodes

Episodes delivered?
Oh yeah, 1 really buggy mess.

Bit confused what this game is supposed to be... Rocket League but without a focused game-mode?

Anway, at most 100 players online would make this a barren digital wasteland out of.. no, basically always.

TL;DR, Rocket League was a 1-off success, repeats not possible.

Yeah, that's not how Japanese society works though.

If the vast majority of funds comes from American and European backers, then they better learn fast.

Also, I think it's a stretch to compare a crowdfunded video game to a nuclear disaster.

But only a small stretch... very small. And oh, what is this over here, a cute kitten cafe with kitten maids and actual cats to pet!

Hehe

Without the happy talk.

"Greetings, backers. Today, I have something important to announce. We have decided to delay Shenmue III's release until the second half of 2018. Here is the reason. New technologies have provided us with new possibilities. To utilize this, we need more time. We have revised the development schedule and will provide details in our Backer Report later this month. Thank you very much for your patience, understanding, and continued support."

People need to lay off the fluffy pillow talk; especially for crowdfunded projects with other people's money on the line.

Yeah, that's not how Japanese society works though. Often problems are put into so many cover words that you can't even comprehend it if you aren't already aware. Fukushima sadly provided a litany of examples

The price of the game has never been the problem for me.

The price of the gear to play the game...that's the problem.

Ain't that the truth

I'm surprised that Valve even had that many writers. It's not like any of their games were heavy on story or dialogue.

Writers also create settings and that's a lot more work than a single character or dialog.

In fact, none of the writers who created the HL1 setting and story still work at Valve with this exit. And you know what else is funny? Everything that HL1 is was formed by these writers, people whose names you probably never even heard.

Valve is losing a lot of people lately. Bunch to Oculus. Now this. Maybe they're all bored with nothing to do.

How can one get bored getting rich doing nothing? I wish I had that problem.

The fact you don't know how one gets bored (and even motivated to quit) in such a situation is really why you don't have this particular problem

Highly skilled/trained writers want to *create* and *share* (in the sense that they want to share their creations mostly for $$$), they are always in-fact, creating and sourcing to create. When they are employed, anything they do at work isn't theirs and they can't use that as a source for anything they create.

This is also why the good writers are ALL freelancers. You hire them for a THING and then they move on creating for their own projects. If you hire them full-time they will quit pretty quickly as soon as they find themselves restricted by an unguided aimless corporate culture (which Valve clearly has).

So is it gonna be like Pokemon, wandering around an overworld until you lock eyes with an opponent and engage in a turn-based creature battle?

Pretty sure when they said they push "beyond the table-top" that means beyond the cards/collection system and into the actual lore/RPG (aka, Skyrim)

And something easily forgottem, MTG has a deep lore, if you remove the cards and basically convert it into a living breathing fantasy world it could be an absolutely mind-blowing RPG. But yeah, what are the chances these 2 devs of all the devs manage THAT?

More interesting is that The Intercept literally handed the leaker over on a silver platter to the gov. How fucking stupid you gotta be as Journalist to not know about printer meta data, or at least run a proper OCR over the files to obfuscate the fucking source to be ID'd as a printer source that only 6 people could have been in that time-frame

Yeah, Intercepted for sure.

The real news is that Frostbite 2 doesn't actually support HDR10 it's a luminance/contrast color shading trick, nothing more. The textures have no 2bit additional color information and the engine does NOT support this.

This is why I was always skeptical of this whole "engine toggle" thing. If a game really supports HDR, then the textures need to be 10bit (per channel) linear gamma textures. No current engine supports this. Heck, not even Photoshop supports this.

Btw, not even DX11/ Vulcan/ DX12 supports this, there is no texture format that's 10x10x10x8 (38bit) RGBA compressed. You could in theory do this by laying 3 texture files over each other, but within a file? You'd be doing uncompressed textures.

Game size difference for Andromeda if they really did support HDR10? Around 150GB~ give or take.

I hope this tech gets a bit mature, and advertising for it a bit more honest. Also, yes, HDR10 means each color channel has 10bit, not that the whole image only has 10bit. End output image is in 10bit (vs 8 bit) but the source textures need to HAVE that range too. If they don't. A surface you see in 10bit may only have 8bit of color information, and that results in washed out colors.

TL;DR

Currently no game actually supports HDR10, even if they claim otherwise by BS nvidia marketing. It's just that. BS

Greenlight by any other name...

I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think the same thing. Greenlight was $100 submission fee and zero curation. Direct has 100$ submission fee and Valve has essentially admitted there will be no curation by them.

Less curation seems like a good way to prevent scammed submission votes though
