So it's going to start doing something that other software, like malwarebytes, has been doing for years.

People who become victims of these things aren't likely to know about Malwarebytes

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

How the fuck are you going to keep on someone with poor work performance at such a critical job? Guy should have been shitcanned ages ago.

Critical job maybe, but look at that office and read up on what they do all day and it becomes clear nobody sane would ever CHOOSE to work there.

Some of his work is outstanding like Léon: The Professional, The Big Blue, and Nikita. Most of his work is at least entertaining like The Fifth Element, Subway, and Lucy. Netflix made a good move there IF they can make him stick to a reasonable budget.

The script for Valerian was not good, but the visuals and the world building were fantastic. It was incredibly inventive.

I think one of the biggest issues of Valerian was the main cast.... both of em have the chemistry of 2 rocks floating in space.

BF1 and in good shape tells me you did not play this on PC, map design continues to be atrocious, game balance is utter shit and tanks still dominate 90% of the rounds.

BF4 is in good shape though.

Not that it matters, this game is dead now. It's not even close to the top 100 played on Steam, and there are currently about 250 people watching battlefront II streams on Twitch. It's nowhere near the first page.

Apparently it sold under 2 million units, which is pathetic for a AAA multiplayer game. Sure they may get some wales spending a few thousand on these microtransactions, but they won't come close to recouping their costs.

EA can go fuck themselves. I don't even care about Anthem, let alone if it got pushed back. Bioware is dead to me.

Top 100 on steam? This isn't on Steam... only Origin. Though I'm not sure if there's a stats page for Origin.

I think he means the actual Battlefront II Not this fake new one

Next up:
Gamers can get sued if spouses are watching the gameplay without having a second license for the game. Kids under the age of 5 will have to have half a license.
Dogs and cats do not require a license at this time.

But does anyone charge their spouse to watch? Many of these streamers make lots and lots of money.

Source?

Is that surprising today? PDP earns tens of millions, and started doing Let's Plays of sorts. He's the highest earner on YouTube.

Gamespot estimates all of these are making at least a million a year

Some guy named MarkPlier does Let's Plays and earns $5.5M



Pretty sure they ask before they let's play

Those guys, maybe. Others are probably earning five or six figures without doing so.

I'm not saying this one way or the other, just that it's a data point you know companies are paying attention to. If you're a dev making $90k, and you see a report that some guy is making half a million bucks playing your game online, you may be a bit peeved. But you may also think it's good in the long run.

Yeah I just don't believe that is indicative of let's players in the lower spectrum. To give you an example, with a channel producing bi-weekly videos length 10m (for 3 ad blocks) with 50-100k views you make around 443€ a month just to give an perspective. That's pretty bad considering you need to produce videos with actual content full-time for a bi-weekly or even daily schedule, and that doesn't even pay half the rent.

A single big video and many small ones (2-5k views vs one vid with 20m views) gives you ZERO payout. Yes, zero.

This is after the AD revenue changes on youtube. Without patreon and twitch (aka, stream subs etc.) many full time youtubers wouldn't even be able to exist anymore.

And well, a game without a youtube let's play is a game I am not buying.

Totally, but those are people caught in the crossfire, not the main point of contention in any of this.

I watch no let's play videos, or YouTube videos about video games, and that will never, ever change. I can't even fathom what information I'd get from them that I can't get from a solid text review, and I've yet to see a game whose basic theme and gameplay I need a video to understand.
Just my opinion and style. They're utterly pointless for me. For the limited amount of free time I have, I'd rather spend it playing something than watching someone play something.

Well, you see all the flaws a game has before you buy it and spend time downloading it.... which save you from wasting time and money or you watch them for entertainment But if that isn't your thing that's fine ^^

Since I cut TV out of my life youtube and streams replaced it with relevant content I find entertaining
