Gattis also claimed that the Vive is "really light, you can wear it for a long time without feeling weighed down," something that can't be said of the Oculus Rift or Project Morpheus.

I wonder how it can be lighter with two screens than with one...

Well, this is coming from the HTC guy who said it will also give you 360 degree vision. . . like a spider or something. I don't think he's making any sensible claim about it's final weight, just talking.

It's an irritating ad filled game overlay thing that AMD trys to trick you into installing every single time you update your drivers.

The BBC article on this is much better. The researchers are completely open about how little can actually be taken from the experiment.

http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-30637010

Despite the findings, Dr Owen cautioned against drawing too many conclusions since he did not know which visits were done by people and which by machines.

"It's not as quite as straightforward as it looks," he said. "It might look like there are lots of people visiting these sites but it is difficult to conclude that from this information."

"What proportion are people and which are something else? We simply don't know." he said, adding that "crawlers" run by law enforcement and other agencies that police abuse sites could be responsible for the steady stream of traffic.

Some reviewers did mention the game's sexism at the time, though, like Gamespot, and it led to thousands of abusive comments and a reworking of Gamespot's comments system.

But more than that, yes I'm sure there's a certain amount of groupthink here, and I'm sure many critics had a great time with the game and only later started complaining about sexism. Maybe that makes them hypocritical to some extent, but it's also entirely possible to enjoy a game while disliking certain aspects of it. I don't think anyone is saying GTA5 is a bad game because it has these problems, or that nobody should play it. They just want some specific problems addressed.

I don't think losing the ability to hire prostitutes would actually hurt the game in any way. Especially since you get nothing out of it nowadays anyway.

Hiring prostitutes isn't the problem. Killing them is.

And I'm tired of people splitting split hairs. Have some guts and call them on their bullshit. You know, it's entirely possible to identify with a point of view while still disliking certain aspects of it. Right?

And oh but if only it was liking a game but not liking certain other aspects of it. If *only* the author had the guts to admit that of his industry. But see, it's not *his* problem. He and his are intellectually matured and have no need to change their opinions. It's everyone else who doesn't agree with them who need to come around.

It makes me wonder, if a game gives players enough freedom at what point is the player responsible for the "content" they've created through their actions?

There is consensual implied sex in the game, and the ability to kill anyone who isn't in the storyline. But it takes a really creepy person going out of their way to combine those two into a sex crime.

$40 for this expansion? That seems a little hefty. Even the Western Front pack they put out seemed a bit slim for $20+, and this is double the price.

Yeah, with the Western Front pack I thought "Oh, it's like a traditional expansion except without the campaign, I guess $20 is reasonable". Now both of them together are $70 compared to the $30 we paid for Opposing Fronts? Madness.

I think the new reality is that new release Relic games are for people with entirely too much money. Average customers need to wait a few months for a sale.

I so hope we get Oculus support.

In any case, THIS.LOOKS.FUCKING.AWESOME. I'm down come January.

Yeah, that's what I thought too with all of the shots of the player looking out the side window in cars and planes. Usually the field of view is too narrow to drive well in a city in first person, but VR would fix it. Plus, it would just be amazing to walk around the city when no one is shooting at you and appreciate how detailed it is.

Nice, this sort of app should really become standard for any sequel with saved game imports. I remember with Mass Effect 2 people hacked together websites with archives of saved games; you had to read through some player's half remembered description of what they did in ME1, and stick with the name and face they came up with.

So did they come up with some canonical alignment and gender for Revan, or is it portrayed as an androgynous character of mysterious purposes so it's consistent with with whatever you did in KotOR?

Not wireless? Is this a joke? KNOW WHAT'S GOT BLUETOOTH? MY DS4.

Yeah, that's pretty crazy that for $60 you don't even get a receiver and apparently they aren't making one even as an add-on.

I mean, the controller has already got the battery and wireless capability, but it's some proprietary wireless implementation that can't work with an ordinary Bluetooth receiver.

If any of you are interested in the Community Test Environment, I just looked it up. It's a system whereby you pay them for the ability to test the game. . . I'd just feel dirty if I gave into that.

It makes me realize that Oculus needs to get cracking on a controller before the commercial release. Mice and keyboards or gamepads aren't really adequate for VR. Developers will want some kind of standard controller they can rely on the customer having.

Nice, kind of like a rental, except free. If there were more legit ways to try out PC games I actually think it would cut down on piracy and increase sales.

I know, right? If only these things existed:

Game demos
Free weekends
Free to play
Let's play vidoes

Right, all of those have some merit. Though, demos are usually terribly short or non-existent, free weekends are rare and easy to miss, and free-to-play is a whole business model that makes for some awful gameplay decisions. I think I prefer this approach to any of them.

I'm not sure how you figure that. There are 5 wings, only the first one is free if you act in time. Each wing is $7, all four of them would be $28.

Still, cool that you can just grind it out and pay with gold.

$25 seems more than reasonable considering how much "Free" gaming I've gotten out of it. I've bought a few rounds in the arena but the vast majority of my time is spent doing those quests that earn gold and buying packs.

The quests they make up are actually pretty good and making you tweak your deck in order to complete the quest and even if you don't win it's still fun to try and stack your deck with 5+ cost creatures or creatures that cost 2 or less.


The first wing is free for a limited time, so it actually costs $20 for the whole thing.

Yeah, I assumed that was the case from previous announcements that they were only considering Oculus support. Still, it's good to see a new AAA game supporting it. I have no doubt once the consumer version is announced there will be lots of games announced with it.

Those screen shots do look impressive. Why build all of this stuff and then completely disable it, why not just leave it in as some kind of extreme quality setting?

If I were cynical I'd guess it's because they didn't want to overshadow the new consoles. Like they couldn't get these features working on the PS4, so decided to cut them out of every version.

They may have a trendy new name for it, but haven't they been practicing "pay for beta" for over a decade now? I seem to remember one of the only ways to get into the Battlefield 2 beta was to buy a paid FilePlanet membership.

thats weird because i havent preordered or bought it, but i just got an email that said:
BOOM, IT'S GAME TIME!
You're in! You've got access to the Battlefield Hardline closed beta

I was talking about Battlefield 2, the game from 2005. But yeah, seems like Visceral Games is more reasonable than DICE when it comes to betas. This was an interview with DICE's general manager, they're not the ones developing Hardline.

I seem to remember one of the only ways to get into the Battlefield 2 beta was to buy a paid FilePlanet membership. And more recently it's tied to a preorder or buying some other crappy game you don't really want (like metal of honor).

I'm guessing the only new thing about this is that they take ALL your money upfront. At least with a preorder you can cancel it if you choose to.
