That Apple related news bit is really amazing, first off, they aren't repairing nor fixing it, they are replacing phones, and secondly, they don't move your data over, so good luck to you getting your phone back to how it was before. That's really shitty customer service

One thing that has become apparent, there seems to be a group of people going out of their way to dump hard on RollerCoaster Tycoon World and singing praise of perfection for Planet Coaster. I have no doubt that one can be bad and one can be good, but it seems a bit uncanny, a bit fabricated in feel.

But it is ireally not fabricated, Atari fucked up development of RTCW so hard that what we are left with is a broken mess, they released it prematurely just to compete with Planet Coaster, which is imo a HUGE dick-move by Atari, because, I might have to repeat that, the early access period for RTCW was a scam no active development or listening to feedback. What was released today is nearly the same as what was shown first thing on EA as beta.

And does it really surprise you that the cynical posters here would jump on something like that? And ATARI being a total dick to top it off....

My one problem with this game is that it looks ugly. The quality of the artwork just isn't great.

Rendered sprites are always gonna be extremely expensive to properly integrate into a scene, none of the current Unity "revisions" of the older RPG's got this one right, sadly. To give you an idea, doing this right requires you to edit the tile once it is fixed, this requires baked tiles that you hand-edit very carefully, adding details in post, adding particle and animation overlays, but this ain't how the devs used Unity to render the scene. They make a scene in 3dsmax or maya, render that out, blot it out (interaction zones, walk paths, walls, LOS blockers etc. and then they cut it to fit the texture size limits of DX9 (which are a real thing).

If you skip the post editing stage on the "fixed" scene, you end up with how this looks. Specifically 0:23 for example, where things look like they are floating in a void due to how badly the shadow and texture interact.. but it's an RPG, and graphics are secondary

I can't even start the original game (on W7 x64) .. so yeah

Also, in case you were not aware

the mod requires both official expansion packs - Desert Siege and Island Thunder

Which you probably only have if you have the GoG version (I don't) I have the original CD version

I thought it was absolutely awful and this video doesn't even come close to all the problems the movie has. What a huge piece of steaming dogshit. I'll never be excited for another Duncan Jones movie ever again.

He wasn't the one who wrote the majority of the script though, the movie was a shitshow even before he took over, which wasn't in-time to fix the direction of this titanic fail.

Really makes me wonder what kind of weird taste people have to like this, it was fantasy, but it was a factual badly made movie, the CGI vs human scenes stick out like a badly drawn cartoon, gomorra looks like a pathetic green imp, and there isn't a character arc to be found. Every character is 2 dimensional, which makes sense, the source material is from a 2D rts...

Either way, there are better youtube channels devoted to picking apart movies... and this one deserves not to be called good. But Chinese don't have the movie selection and history we have so yeah... Maybe a sequel will fix it, but not if Duncan Jones directs it. It's pretty clear that "Moon" was an 1 in a million hit. He can't direct character interactions worth a damn, which is funny, because Moon does only have 1 character....

The thing that bothers me is that every single person that says they liked this never actually says why. Which makes me think they just want to be contrarian OR they have seen much worse movies (in which case that is a good point, because I don't bother to watch the REALLY bad movies ,p)

I don't understand how they had such great source material to work with and used almost every opportunity to change key parts of the story. Makes me glad they likely won't be touching the story of the Lich King.

Now we have a janky movie story and a fucked up alternate universe story in the game.

The answer is the director. You give someone source material he doesn't have a clue about, you get this movie as result. Also I feel like not even Blizzard has a clue anymore, since the original creators of Warcraft 2 long since stopped working at that company.

But really, the deadliest sin of them all is putting the MAYBE only movie version of Warcraft in.. the Warcraft 2 lore range, the most boring story ever told, orks suck life out of their world, orks invade, orks get cut-off and battle a bit and lose and later alliance ensues, except they didn't even get to the alliance part.... since they wasted 30 minutes on pointless exposition.

Oh well, maybe we get a proper Warcraft movie, when they get to the 2nd one.

The noise from the tires is already much louder than the engine noise in many modern gasoline cars. When I am out walking I often hear the tire noise without ever hearing the engine of cars that are close.

Quality tires don't have that problem.

ALL tires make noise above a certain speed (25mph) and above 30mph you have wind noise.

This law is for speeds below that range where tires make (no) noise ^^

I wasn't suggesting there is NO sound. I was saying, the cheapies are the ones that make loud brown noise when a car is cruising by at neighborhood speeds. Higher end tires are typically much quieter.

My point was that there is no perceivable sound, especially in winter (where tires are harder) and when it is windy, I experience 2 hybrid cars in my street nearly daily, you can't hear them, flat out. Ok, the speed limit here is 30km/h , at that speed all I hear is a faint "shhhhh" sound from the tires when the car is passing me, that is. Not before, and not after.

Also tire noise really depends on the road surface too.... anyway, point is this law is about some very real problem with e-cars. They are ninjas and that isn't meant jokingly.

Uh a quick Google suggests there are about 5 billion 'shares' on Facebook every single day. If 1% is fake, that's like 50 million shares of fake content every day.

Exactly, 1% is a mindblowingly huge number when you have a few hundred billion shares over a year

Why not just include a sensor that turns the noise on or honks or what have you when it detects a pedestrian on the road? I think one of the big draws of electricars is their silence. They're the ninjas of cars.

Shhh

Yeah I don't think having them "make a noise" 100% of the time is the point of such a car.. in fact I can already see the problems, resonating sounds from electric cars driving people mad at night.. no thanks.

And honking at night in a city, would be a quick way to get angry neighbors throwing shit at you. Or bricks...

Unsurprisingly Polygon found the presence of guns and the ability to do bad things incredibly 'problematic' and 'gross'.


Which for any other game would be laughable, but read up on the basic story premise and you'll understand why it's not just problematic, but completely insane in the context of the story.

Crime AI flags someone with 86% probability to be the next jerkface 2.0
jerkface 2.0 fights this because he feels it's not right
jerkface 2.0 becomes a murdering terrorist to prove he is not a murdering terrorist???
Crime AI correctly flagged jerkface 2.0

Which makes for an extremely questionable "moral of the story" if you were being flippant, you could even construct that Ubisoft promotes terrorism, well, depending on how the story ends.

It feels a bit more streamlined than PoE. Almost dumbed down.

I don't mind it, but its no Baldurs.

Nothing is... (I finished it and I am on my 2nd run right now, so mild spoilers follow)

......

That's quite damning and unfortunate.

I haven't tried it, though from what I'm hearing it's both short and now seems to lack depth. All while having a pretty hefty pricetag.

Obsidian seems to be pricing their things right up there without the quantity or quality that other things at those prices offer.


That is a bit of a harsh interpretation.. the game is totally worth the price, imo. The story branching is incredible, and so is the conquest "start, and both are well written, but we are not just gamers we are also "RPG gamers" and when compared to PoE you can tell what a skilled (world) writer like Avellone actually *DOES* for a game. It is all a question of where the priority lies for you. Combat is competent and fixes a few of the horrid issues of PoE, magic system is (unlike some other reviewers said) extremely smart, and there is a clear power curve and at least me personally.. I never lacked new sigils. I researched new ones by the boat load since most crafted relics are inferior to the stuff you find And magic is extremely impactful once you get the "added" effects sigils, stunning 3 guys for 12 seconds is a massive power shift in the battle for example. And magic quickly becomes vastly better than combo abilities (though.. a few abilities are EXTREMELY powerful...)

But yeah, I would say Obsidian is currently lacking a writer on the same quality level as Avellone + the money to push to the last polish stage and that is really all there is to say. It is a perfectly fun RPG and in some ways better than PoE

And don't get me wrong, the characters are extremely interesting. It is the nitty gritty and "character growth" part that is lacking. In some way a clear indicator that this had a low budget production sadly. It's also got the typical obsidian problem, that is, no romances. Although as the game isn't very clear on the ages of anyone maybe that is for the better....
