Been having fun with Legion. Just began the end game grind... two aspects that I really like about the end game grind:

I really like the end game zone, Suramar, and the concept behind it. It feels a little something that began as a bit of an experiment that became tightened and fleshed out so it feels a bit different than anything we're accustomed to in WoW.

World Quests, grinding away for gear to get to heroics has never felt so good. The "quests" feel pretty good, there are plenty of people attacking the elite mobs which helps if you like to play solo. And usually the quest begins with a Warcraft 3 voice acted face blab. Playing the world quests also made me realize a lot of the details I had missed on my first go.

One thing that still pisses me off is how long it takes to queue for an instance. They can still take up for 30-45 minutes which is just absurd. Not to mention that most of the new instances have been sort of long and braindead experiences, unfortunately. Hopefully, playing on Heroic will change that.

Good for ya that ya love this facebook infested shit , grinding farmville faceshit

So Nvidia can mine your shit and sell it to marketers, I'd imagine?

This! What's next? Our motherboards will require a login and spy on us for marketing reasons so that advertised features will function?

This is a violation of good business practice I'm sure of that!

I used shadowplay for recording gameplay. For me also it was the reason I bought nVidia cards. Now shadowplay 2.x will not even work. nVidia retroactively disabled it (it won't re-enable now with a full driver reinstall). 3.0 requires a system audit and they will sell that information. It's very creepy and I don't want their bullshit audit. What I have on my PC is none of their fucking business.

So now I can't record any gameplay. They've resorted an audit extortion so that I can record. "We demand to audit your PC, lest you won't be able to record gameplay."


Well instead of saying like MANY people have and are saying : If you don't wanna use it then don't , and there by accept all that shit compagnies throw at us , maybe we could have been without this shit , next login / pay for update....fucking Clown

ROFL, amazing how the internet breeds idiots. Sony did NOT include a 4k blue ray drive, their PS4 announcement shows a PS4 that is less powerful than the new xbox. Last time I looked the market is loaded with 4k TV's and monitors, it is hard to find a 1080p one these days. the ps4 can't do true 4k, it will just upscale. Lastly unless you have a 60+ TV you won't be able to tell the difference anyways.

Anyways real gamers are playing on the PC. Sony and Microsoft would not have made these changes unless they have been feeling major pressure from PC's.

How is that in any shape or form a nail in the coffin for the xbox? It anything it might be the nail in the PS4's lead over the xbox.

The drivel that people post on the internet is mind numbing.

Who in the fuck cares about a UHD blu-ray drive.

You all still renting from blockbuster? Not sure if you've been living under a rock, but physical media is dead.

And to say that the PS4Pro won't be as powerful as the vaporware product from xbox that's still at least a year away from being released... is that an argument?

*THIS JUST IN*

Next year's tech will be better than last years! Also scientists confirm that water is still wet. Also, scientists conclude that a fucking Titan + 6700k can't really do native 4k in all titles, so scorpio won't have a hope in hell.

Then you continue the circus by saying how ridiculous it is that Sony can't even do native 4k, "they'll just upscale". Only to follow up with "And you can't even notice 4k on anything less than a 60" screen!" You sir, seem to have forgotten what you're mad at.

You are right about one thing however: "The drivel that people post on the internet is mind numbing. "

Couldn't agree more.



Not sure if you've been living under a rock

Well he is living next to you so yes.

Most of you know my history with Star Citizen. However, for those who do not, I will give you the 10-second snapshot.

> Backed Star Citizen on 01/2013 (1st purchase: Digital Mercenary - LTI for $40)
> Continued to back until 11/2014 (last purchase: Standalone Ship - Drake Herald - LTI for $85)
> Total backed: $930
> Felt very confident about project in 2013
> Confidence began to wane in late 2014
> Become uncomfortable about project in early 2015
> Requested a full refund on 07/2015
> Received a full refund a month later. Sandi directly involved herself. Details are fully documented here.

Have I been a vocal opponent of SC in the past? Absolutely. I think I created #BlackKnightsMatter and thought SC had a lot in common with a long con; both of which Derek used on his blogs. However, today I am indifference. I am neither for or against Star Citizen. If both SQ42 and the MMO does well, I am happy for CIG and the backers. If not, well it was one of most expensive crowdfunding experiments in history.

So that is the mindset I had when I read **BREAKING NEWS** Foundry42 (UK) Filed Financials!! and a few of Derek's other links from the Drama Megathread. I am scratching my head. I put nearly 4X more into Star Citizen than Derek and yet the level of negative attention and vitriol is head scratching. There's something more than Derek's passion for wanting to warn people about the project. It almost feels like a private vendetta of some sort. All I am saying is this much hate at such a constant rate for this long cannot be healthy for anyone. It feels like it is bordering on mental illness at a Khan level. As Spock would say, "It is illogical."

Worth noting. I logged into my RSI account and found that, while I do not own any ships, apparently I still have a bunch of stuff.

> 100M REWARD - 2943 WAR BOND
> 56M REWARD - J-SPAN CRYO-STAR COOLER
> 55M REWARD - PREACHER ARMAMENT INQUISITION XXII GATLING
> 52M REWARD - BB-12 MANNED MANEUVERING UNIT
> 49M REWARD - XI’AN SPACE PLANT
> 47M REWARD - ENGINE TUNING KIT
> 45M REWARD - HADESIAN ARTIFACT
> 42M REWARD - EXPLORER-CLASS MOBIGLAS RIG

Okay, I am done. I will go back to bad Monty Python jokes and general jocularities.

There's something more than Derek's passion for wanting to warn people about the project. It almost feels like a private vendetta of some sort.

Many people in here , do not like others to say : You are wrong sad people indeed

Pay for patches? Lol! Class-actions incoming in 3...2...1...

Probably referring to the few games which will get additional work done to make them look better @ 4k by more than just increasing resolution. Some will probably bundle new assets and ask a DLC-like price for the patch, or offer 2 patches, one free without the assets and one with them.

Jezz you sounds like one who WILL pay for it if it ever happens....... Clown

ps4 pro - please stop that 4k capable nonsense, with the hardware it got its just a 1080p console full stop. Pr people are delusional.

Nonsense, I decided to test this lately using a GTX 1060 which is around the power offered by the PS4 pro for 4k. My findings have been pretty interesting.

Witcher 3, 4k DSR all settings on Ultra except foliage distance ( high ), shadows ( high ), grass distance ( high ) and gimpworks ( off ). Postprocessing all off except light shafts, SSAO, Blur, Chromatics. FPS cap at 30 adaptive sync @ half refresh rate ( 60hz/2 ).

Results? Mostly rock solid 30fps across the board, very playable, very few noticeable tearing = few drops below 30. That's without intrinsic commands, that's without async, without Vulkan or DX12, without any targeted console optimizations and direct to metal coding.

So, will they have games which were running @ 1080p/30fps on the PS4 running @ 4k/30fps on the PS4 pro? The answer is an easy yes. Will the games running @ 60 fps in 1080p run @ 60 fps in 4k? Again, yes.

At this point, if the Xbone Scorpio is indeed 50% faster than the PS4 pro, could they with a few tweaks get the games which were running @ 30 fps upscaled to 1080p on the original Xbone to run @ 4k native, or the very least, 4k upscaled from say 3325x1871 ( which is about 3 times as many pixels as 1080p instead of 4x for 4k ) @ 60fps? Highly probable.

You see the problem with PC mindset right now is that most have lost the age old art of tweaking settings minimizing eye candy loss and maximizing perf, like they must absolutely run at 60fps or more with everything maxed.

I've been tweaking settings for 20 years now, ever since the first 3Dfx card hit the market. I've got it down to a damn art, I ain't shy about fiddling around with ini files, mods, whatever. And if I can make Witcher 3 run 30fps@4k on a GTX1060 without all the advantages listed above of console optimizations, without access to what the developers have access to tweak their settings ( sometimes even dynamically, dynamic res amongst others, I'm looking at you with envy, get your ass over to the PC ) to hit a particular performance while minimizing eye candy loss. Why wouldn't they be able to?

I don't think this is delusion kid. 20 years of experience and a bit of messing around tweaking Witcher 3 with, relatively speaking, very limited means attests to it.

The question isn't IF its going to happen, but HOW its going to happen.

Lots of wannabe : no prove just words 2x Clown

Despite the ending of the third game I loved the ME series, however, thanks to Sean Murray's tomfoolery I am not going to preorder.

Side note, I was getting some serious Star Citizen vibes from the video. Like could this be the Squadron 42 Chris is hoping to make but likely will never achieve? Or am I looking too much into this? Feel free to correct me.

Not surprised about VR sales, the price points are too high and a lot of people don't want to be in on the first generation of the tech. I'm really interested but its inevitable that better products are coming so I'm just sitting it out until then. I don't mind the early adopter thing but it is a ton of cash to do it with VR so /shrug.

I actually have zero interest in owning VR. I think VR would be better served with a "brick and mortar shop" that has extremely expensive - cutting edge tech (Think Lawnmower Man), that folks could go visit for entertainment... like Paintball, Laser Tag, and those fast indoor electric go-cart places.

VR in the home can't compare to that.

I own the best (available), cutting-edge, tech (VIVE, though I would accept Rift as an answer too) and it's sitting on my computer desk with which I play paintball (rec room) and laser tag (battledome, raw data, onward) on a regular basis. The fact that I can do those things at home is the selling point.

VR in the home will never compare to in-person experiences, like paintball and laser tag, and it's not intended to replace those experiences. There's no substitute for being there and holding the real thing in your hands, but I can't fly a spaceship IRL and I can't go on a dungeon crawl IRL for phat lewts, etc...

If you haven't done it yet, give it a shot. I'm very pleased with my VIVE purchase.

Guess ya have to say that with all those $ ya put in it , i see nothing more that beta crap there

Yeah, OK, whatever makes you sleep at night.

After all this time of my raising the alarm, all of a sudden "everyone saw it coming". yeah, OK.

Well, to be fair the concerns about the originally given release window (end of 2014) have been around since day one. It has been discussed to death in RSI chat and various forums on the net since the very first days of the campaign.

The funny part is how the White Knights have changed their tune since then.
If (like me, you and many others) you dared to question whether CIG would be able to deliver a full fledged single player game (there was no talk of an episodic release in the early days), a full fledged MMO/PU, player-run servers *and* mod tools in only two years, you had the White Knight brigade cracking down on you and telling you that the game is made by Christ Roberts and that he is the most experienced game developer in the world and everyone who doubts anything is clueless.

Nowadays, you have the very same White Knights defending the delays by posting funny charts of how WoW or Diablo 3 took this long to develop and that it is only logical and was ALWAYS (of course) to be expected that SC would be delayed.
They like to call everyone clueless who believed in the dates originally given by CR/CIG. You know, the same dates that, if you did NOT believe in them in 2012, you got called being clueless as well for not believing in the grandmaster God of game development Christ Roberts Superstar Himself.

Anyway, to say that you "invented" the concerns about delays is a little far-fetched, Derek. Almost everyone (except for the CR cultists) was concerned about it from day one but then Christ Roberts told people to keep pledging so he can hire more people and that more devs would actually get things done faster (yes, he effectively even promised delivery BEFORE the end of 2014 given enough capital supply).

It became clear rather quickly for anyone with open eyes and ears that CR was intentionally dangling the carrot always within reach to keep people pledging. CR likes to excuse himself for his unrealistic dates by saying that he is an "optimist". That is obviously bullshit.
He said at Gamescom 2015 that they were hoping to have the "full" PU online by 2016. Just like the original end of 2014 dates or the numerous missed release dates for the various modules, he can not have seriously believed that. He's not an optimist. He is a fraudulent conman.

Finally, here's my fav quote again (from October 2012 and you can tell from the way the question is worded that there was already a lot of doubt about the given release timeframe back in the first few days):

You have stated that you expect to have an Alpha up and going in about 12 months, with a beta roughly 10 months after that and then launch. For a game of this size and scope, do you think you can really be done in the next two years?

Chris Roberts: Really it is all about constant iteration from launch. The whole idea is to be constantly updating. It isn’t like the old days where you had to have everything and the kitchen sink in at launch because you weren’t going to come back to it for awhile. We’re already one year in - another two years puts us at 3 total which is ideal. Any more and things would begin to get stale.

^this. I agree in part. But I think we're talking about two separate things.

I blew the alarm about the game not being made, back in July 2015 and wrote a string of blogs since then. That's how it all became mainstream.

Then, I subsequently iterated that no way in hell either of them make it out in 2016.

But yeah, quite a few people already saw the signs. But until I came along, as you know, most of it was drowned by the White Knight rhetoric pushing it all down.


And when it is released and the studio didn't implode as you were saying, are you gonna finally stfu ?
the game as it stands today is already 10x more fun than any of the crap garbage games you have put out, just a little friendly reminder

And when it is released and the studio didn't implode as you were saying, are you gonna finally stfu ?

Way to go intel, confuse the average schmo with multiple chips covering the performance gamut all labeled i5 and i7.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time... Back in core 2 duo days, I had an E6420, which was a desktop dual core 2.13ghz that I had OC'd to 3ghz, the whole system upgrade had cost less than 500$ and people knew. A guy I know who had bought an expensive laptop and everyone knew he paid 2k+, we were at a party, he asked me what model of dual core I had, I knew his was a less power consuming and slower T7xx with less cache, but from the same architecture, he had boasted about it earlier.

So I told him the model number in mine without thinking about those kinds of specifics, he went on laughing mine was slower and the crowd followed, but I simply shut up knowing that at this juncture it was pointless to explain to the clueless drunk crowd and the perhaps also clueless boaster that his CPU was in fact much slower despite the higher numbered model and letter and much higher price.
