Lol their driver situation is still a bit of an issue. New games come out all the time that seem to have major issues for ATI users until new drivers hit. Happens with nVidia too but not with the same frequency.

On the subject of the MSI VR One.. the battery life is 1.5 hours? You've got to be kidding me! Probably takes 6 hours to recharge too.

Awesome that a VR movie (short) won an Emmy, but it consists if basically sitting there and watching the short within a 3d space. You can't move around, you cant interact in any way. I think interactive VR movies may be awesome, but this isn't it.

Interactive VR story telling is still in total infancy... major reason is that there is no real "VR" engine yet. It's all hacks on existing engines.. total mess. Thing is, if you think UE4 is good for VR, think again. That fancy visual demo they showed? You move even 60inch to the left in any scene and the entire thing falls apart. It's a total Potemkin village and was extremely complicated to actually create. Way out of reach for any INDY. And same thing for that "animated short" rendered in Unity 5... which was even more a Potemkin village than the UE4 demo. In the sense that every single scene was it's own scene space, there is NOTHING actually connected in that demo. That baffled me to no end because it would have been really impressive if that had been "1 scene" but in Unity 5, you can't actually do such scenes and connect them within 1 scene space (ie, without loading a new scene, basically a new "level")

Gah...

As usual the (japanese) porn industry is way ahead though... I hear first VR "virtual girlfriend" simulators are quite advanced already, but the lack of tactile feedback seems to be the biggest problem, even on the CES I had not seen anyone tackle that.

it's a shame doom was finally cracked by hackers... people should still buy this game instead of pirate it

Does this mean we finally can get some real mods? Not just the SnapMap bullshit?

Probably not...

Ehhhh... I guess theoretically you could probably make something that has both, but it's not as if they'd be working together. You'd basically have a case that is both a PC and a QC that you can work individually. I'm not sure there'd ever really be a point to it.


Would be the same thing as a math co-processor Only for GC encryption

None of that really matters now given that [...] Gawker.comís editor-in-chief and Gawker.com will no longer exist as of next week.

Ok, that quote makes it sounds really existential...

Anyhow, this story isn't worth popcorn.. but how about rice waffles?

If you don't get the copy i wouldn't sweat it.
From what I've seen the pc remastered rereleased version don't look that different from the original, another reason why it's probably free if you own the game

Any comparison shots remaster vs normal version yet?

Sepharo wrote on Sep 9, 2016, 21:07:
One thing that I really hope is fixed for me personally is launching my Transcendence ult while still alive (on my screen).

The whole point of that ult is canceling other offensive ults. So I have to hear the enemy ult call and then quickly press Q. So many goddamn times I'll do this, press Q while still alive, and the damn thing doesn't trigger and I'm dead. It's basically the same issue as getting shot behind a wall when you're in cover on your client but outside of cover on the enemy's client, but far more devastating.

When it's really bad I'm technically dead before I even hear Reaper's ult and lose the chance I'm supposed to have. It's just so brutal knowing that your reaction speed is fine, you did what you were supposed to do, but are punished anyway.

The problem is that someone seeing you die on his screen overrules the fact that you are not actually dead yet on your screen in Overwatch. No action you do after that client report counts as valid.

I think this is really shit netcode, but Blizzard says this is good netcode for a competitive shooter. So whatever. I'd rather have trade kills like in BF4 over this system ^^ At least in BF4 it makes sense, as ALL bullets have travel time...

Considering most encryption from 2006 is broken in 2016 this is really not as surprising as the headline makes it out to be.

What I really wonder though is whether quantum computers are actually compatible hardware or if it's really a whole new platform, like the difference between "cell" and "x86-64" aka, absolutely 100% different architecture, with different compilers and drivers and everything.

Or can a quantum CPU work like a regular x86-64 ? Is there any chance we'll see hybrid CPU's that have a normal and quantum CPU ?

How the duck can that be legal? Or legal enough that no one goes to jail?

You are assuming the security issues aren't really a thing. What if they are? Though as you say, I wonder if this isn't actually illegal.. but I have no idea about financial/stock exchange laws... probably isn't illegal.. only really scummy

I read that Gearbox put all their eggs into this turd basket, I don't think another Borderlands game is going to turn it around for them either.

http://steamcharts.com/app/394230

Wasn't there a humble sale recently? Those are atrocious numbers for what was essentially a fire-sale, NEGATIVE player retention... and remember, 277k owners. Only 1 in 1000 still even play this.

To be honest, after Borderlands: Whatever the latest on was, I would be kinda happy if we don't see another Borderlands game from them.

Wow, what a way to spin selling off the lifeblood of their company.
Also, why aren't they dead yet? Could this be the death knell?

Well the fact this sale goes through (one of) their investor(s) is a pretty clear and particularly loud sign, no?

Is it dead, Jim?

Looks... okay. I'm sorry, THIS is what you guys chose to show off 4K? A dark vault with barely anything to see?


and it's visibly tearing 1/3 from the top of the screen (ALPHA VERSION!)

Sure, but it's Frostbyte 3 and that engine is pretty stable And around the 25 seconds mark you can see that the ground is essentially not even textured and that even the cover looks low res and blurry. I get it, it's a tech demo for 4K/HDR 10 but.. what's the point showing something like that in a dark foggy cave? After people saw how BF1 looked (Which definitely is the BY FAR prettiest game to come out this year)..

My point being, this is Frostbyte, same engine used in BF1.. so wide open area with extreme view-range and detail would have been far better showcase. That is where frostbyte shines.

whats the best wheel under $100?

The cheapest product on that list is the Thrustmaster TMX @ $165 via Amazon.

So under $100 means buying a used wheel, and it can be tricky to get a decent one. These are mechanical devices and they wear over time. There are significant G25 & G27 communities that are a great resource for mods, upgrades, replacement parts, and buying used wheels.

Amazing that the Logitech MOMO is still supported after...*uses toes*....14 years? I do not recommend buying a used MOMO, but do your research.

My Momo still works fine, some "aftermarket" upgrades not withstanding ^^ (meaning I replaced the springs in the pedals..)

I have to say... this game is not free. Windows 10 is not free. When something is advertised as free then often you are the product, and nowhere can this be better seen than with W10 and Forza Apex

She was the PTA mom everyone knew. Who would want to harm her?

The schadenfreude is strong with this one.

man that was such a bizarre story, like, what is wrong with someone that they would risk an opulent life in the 'burbs in the name of petty revenge.

and, as a frequent visitor of irvine, it really is lowkey creepy urbanism as fuck.

Yeah that story followed me through the day... how insane do you have to be to try to destroy the life of a good person in such a fashion over such an incredible minor thing (calling her son "slow" as in, slow to queue up, day dreaming). Both of them should have been committed into an asylum and the children put in foster care. The destruction of their careers is imo not even 20% of the required punishment, what they did was not just a crime, it was the absolute highest form of maliciousness. And the joke is they do not even admit it... even after all this time, they do NOT ADMIT IT.

Bah

Yeah, waiting for VR headset price drops. Maybe with a little more competition in the market.

I think the far greater issue is the price of a 1080... which is essentially required for proper VR and isn't even half-way future proof for VR gen2

Yup. I gotta add $400 to the price of any VR headset because my 670 ain't gonna cut it.

The joke is so far, I have not encountered any game that my 670 can't handle "kinda OK" still (not at MAX everything, but so what)... one hell of a great card and one of my best purchases ever, this Phenom II 1055T on the other hand bites me regularly in the ass with it's lack of SSSE3.0 and SSE 4 instructions (that extra S stands for supplemental, and yeah, that is really a thing)
