And it doesn't look much better in the GPU market either. 1060 is superior in every aspect to the 480 now that 1060 prices are equal.

No, 1060 is in no way superior in all or even most aspects to 480. I am not sure what your opinion is even based on, considering gaming benchmarks of new games are readily available.

Check out an article like the 1050Ti review below at Guru3D, where you can make comparisons between current performances of 1060 6GB and 480 8GB.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_1050_ti_g1_gaming_oc_review,12.html

In DX11 games, 480 and 1060 take the lead back and forth in various game. In DX12 games, 480 stretches the lead even further.

In the benchmark I checked, like the one for BF1 for example the 480 is a good 11% slower

Your benchmarks are however quite interesting.. my data was from July (not my BF1 data, but what my previous impression was based on) And it seems the 480 performs much better nowadays. So I'll revise my opinion as well. The 1060 is in selected areas superior, like power consumption... ;p

How exactly do you optimize a display driver for a controller?

They are not, the actual PDF says
"Oculus Touch launch titles"

Ie, they are optimized for the titles, not for the controller

News Comments > No Full Clip Edition Upgrades for Bulletstorm Owners
2. Re: Why No Full Clip Edition Upgrades for Bulletstorm Owners Dec 5, 2016, 19:13 eRe4s3r
 
The real reason is that Gearbox doesn't own the IP, unlike say, Nordic with Darksiders. Which makes you wonder why the hell there is such a "enhanced" edition for Bulletstorm. It's essentially a re-release with a new main character model/voice, but that is it. Literally. Can't think of a more odd "enhanced" edition.

I want, no, the industry needs AMD to succeed.
But when an i3 makes a decent gaming box and an i5 stomps almost anything AMD produces, i don't know if success is in AMDs future.

And it doesn't look much better in the GPU market either. 1060 is superior in every aspect to the 480 now that 1060 prices are equal. And ATI doesn't even compete against the 1070 or 1080

I don't get why both Nvidia and Intel are so far ahead in technology cycles either. It seems for every iteration either company does, AMD/ATI do 1 less. And that obviously leads to disaster. ;(

And I want competition! I still use a AMD cpu, but the upgrade is looming ever closer, and it doesn't look like AMD is even decent in the competition for upgrade paths...

Before it all became computerized, I spent 3-4 years as a drafter (mostly electrical schematics) which involved a lot of lettering. Since then all my printing is in capitalized letters and the only cursive I can probably do is my signature. Hell, I can barely print lower case letters anymore because I haven't hardly done it since the early 90's.

For me the print writing style was formed far more mundane. I wrote a note in cursive, needless to say, NOBODY in my office could read it... yay!

print since then, though my lowercase w,p,l vs W P I look really really weird ... but as added benefit, I KNOW what I write can be read by anyone who can read. Which in office environment or even for shopping notes, can be a huge deciding factor to stop using this god awful cursive writing.

Signature is only time I use cursive, and it's gotten so bad I have actual problems being able to read it when people have a very very unique slant to their swirly lines. My parents cursive for example I just flat out can't even identify as text, they learned the "old" cursive and the new one. And if you wonder what I mean with old cursive, I mean https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%BCtterlin and funnily enough, computers gave me some skill at reading Fraktur.

Uh, its been a while lol but I pretty sure a friend and I could play together against AI or do joint missions in MW3.

Ah .. MW 2 Mercenaries did have COOP but dang that was ages ago. MW 3.. can't remember that at all.

It was never COOP I wanted to play often apparently.... ^^

Either way, to me COOP wouldn't be a relevant feature in a merc campaign... MW4 Mercs is what sets my expectations.. and so they are very low to begin with

MWO was pretty... lackluster. It felt kinda consolised, with a lot of missing features depth. And the mech bay UI got progressively worse over time.

Saying that, if this has co-op i'll definitely try it out though, as i have fond memories of playing the early mechwarriors in co-op.

Single player on rails? Pass.

??

Mechwarrior 2 did not have coop
Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries however did have local coop vs AI
Mechwarrior 3 did not have coop (did however have local vs AI)
Mechwarrior 4 did not have coop (coop mod via Mektek 3.1 does, however with no campaign, no objectives, no mercenary layer, and shit AI that can't cope with 2 players ;p)

Played MW4 Mektek 3.1 with Coop mod/campaign then? I wonder seriously where your "fond memories" come from Or do you mean the MP missions with AI? Was that in 2 ? That was never COOP in the sense of the word...

I would much rather have a MW 4 Mercs sequel that is within the Mechwarrior canon story, and goes from 3015 trough to the clan invasions.... and it seems I get that. And from what I hear, people want a SP Mechwarrior 5 primarily, not tacked on COOP, which it would be. Since you can't have the merc company management layer in coop.. least not without designing the entire game around coop.

Shows how far ahead google is in AI research Linking applications is an API thing, but keeping a conversational flow within a question/response, that is AI ^^
No, that's still not AI. We can not create AI with the current computing architecture. That's a fact.
Edit: read this http://scienceblogs.com/developingintelligence/2007/03/27/why-the-brain-is-not-like-a-co/

Ah , thanks for the link. Learned something new

To be honest I hope these assistants will create the illusion enough that we don't need to think about whether it is AI or script. It either works right or it doesn't (Siri doesn't) and google assistant funnily enough, does, it however falls completely apart when you refer to notes or email contents (thankfully?) ;p

I am just bedazzled Siri has that little illusion behind it, considering how it was hyped. Google seems to play more into the "you shouldn't be able to tell it's just a dumb machine" mindset, I wonder if that isn't enough to create a life-like communication on a response mechanism (since it only ever acts on questions).

Tipsy McStagger wrote on Dec 4, 2016, 14:23:
Mechwarrior Online is just a team death match style game. But it does have excellent controls and a great feeling of piloting a giant mech. By far the best controls and feeling out of all the mechwarrior games.

Second,
Mechwarrior online started as a single player game which they showed trailers of a city battle with an atlas then they made it into F2P money grab.
Wouldn't be surprised if in a year they say "Mechwarrior 5 canceled, mechwarrior online getting co-op mode".


That trailer was for a crowdfund campaign, which failed, and even back then they said they will make a f2p p2w version to get to money to make what they originally intended to. That was before the "good" game engines got dirt cheap.

And secondly I don't think MWO will get coop It uses cry-engine, this new game uses Unreal 4, you can't share any code between the 2 projects. New engine means they are serious about it being independent from MWO at the very least. And it would make no sense to add AI, pathing etc. to MWO, which has focus and player base focused exclusively on competitive gameplay.

Wonder if this will get creepy only when you play it and it's finally a first person RE This trailer however was pretty shit.

When I think back to that semi-recent Dawn of War 3 Trailer ..... ;p It just goes to show how important good sound design is.

Yup, we're all waiting for a fucking proper Mechwarrior remake. With VR taking off, the time is right. Fuck, can you imagine MW2 Mercenaries with a modern rendering engine and VR???

JUST TAKE MY MONEY

Indeed ^^ But this is one of these hopes that will never come to pass. The one hope we had for this, turned out be MWO....

Yeah, and I don't want online PVP. I want Mercs-style campaign mode, with fleshed out financial /inventory/mech/employee management, and moral ambiguity in mission outcomes. The sense of being a tiny fly caught in a hurricane of Inner Sphere politics set amidst the threat of Clan invasions, and the squabbling of petty Houses. Basically, MW2:Mercs but with more everything.


HELL yeah.

The future called, MW5 Mercenaries announced.. by the MWO makers.. lmao

I hope they don't stick too closely to pnp rules... otherwise MW4-merc-modded win strategy will remain valid

Oh hell yes! Did they read our topic from a few days ago or what? And yeah I am hyped, SP focused MW5 in a merc company setting is the one thing I want out of this franchise. The ONE THING. MWO and COOP can kiss my armored mech ass.

And this looks primed for VR as well. If this isn't super shit, then it will be the "win" app for VR (for me).

Pray to the baby Jesus we won't have to pick flowers/everything like DA:I. If I have to watch that excruciatingly slow bend-over-pick-up animation one more time I'm most likely going to give this a pass. Minor annoyances that become huge over the course of a game far too long for its variety of content.

Yeah there was a mod for that, got rid of animation, immediate pick up. I saved a 1/2 year of my life I feel. Some though my call that dumbing down, I call it playing smart.

One of the only mods I needed for that game... there was another to increase inventory size, got that as well... these 2 things always annoyed me to no end in my first playthrough.. gah

In my non-geek household, I switch the machine on, read the time it takes on the display, enter that in my tablet timer thingy and go make food or something...

The solution he made is kinda cool though. But wifi signal near my washer in the cellar is 0, so wouldn't even be a solution for me if I wanted to get fancy ;/

I'm definitely safer than your average Internet cruiser. I went years without AV on my personal PC without ever getting a virus. I would occasionally download a trial just to do a scan, never found anything. I eventually started using it to protect myself from an accidental exposure -- a virus on a legit site or a friend unknowingly sending me one...

Doubt AV would you protect you from either of these threats, if it's a 0-day exploit in your browser or in a plugin transmitted via ad network then no AV would trigger, only protection is uBlock origin and, far more severe Javascript blockers (that's the stuff that can stealth open new browser windows in Firefox...). And these are the real threats nowadays. I dunno what you get via email, but as I said, use (clean) instance of sandboxie if you want to be really sure Aside from peace of mind, it also gives you an overview of network traffic and where the app puts files... very educational ^^

But what works for me, doesn't work for everyone. And it takes some mental effort to not click on exe files without sandboxie test first...

I am glad Hideo Kojima finally got his award MGS5 was monumental in scope and effort, and it is incredibly sad that the fucktards at Konami ruined it and were true fucktards in every aspect to boot. That a company can even behave like Konami did and not be hammered down by the law is a Japanese oddness that should be fixed. But probably won't...

And Nolan just made clear that VA's may deserve better pay, but they certainly do not deserve special clauses in their contracts that nobody else can get in the industry.
