Kind of crazy that I remember downloading the original Cossacks many a years ago and the series is still going after then. Don't got much interest in it though.

Yeah, it's as if the gaming industry is becoming like the movie industry where it has become so saturated, nobody can come up with anything new and inspiring, but instead they just kick out reboots of old games and/or sequels and prequels. Some good, some bad.

Ah, the microwave society.
Not even 4 seconds of video and everyone has made up their mind.
Can't wait to pre order this so I can get the gold shimmering double barrel shotgun. Cuz, you know.

Cuz you already have your mind made up too? Clever irony there RedEye9.

I was interested when I saw Blizzard was developing an FPS game, but upon watching the gameplay video, that interest quickly faded away.

Fuck that. I want to see some more high definition photographs of Ceres. Unless NASA starts releasing some images soon Im gonna start crying conspiracy....

nono, fuck THAT, it's time to drop a minisub into the subsurface ocean on europa. ceres is just another rock. if you're talking about the bright spots, they're almost certainly just pockets of ice reflecting sunlight. the wiki article has some recent photos.

Dude, we've already been to Europa. In fact, there's even a documentary you can see about that trip.

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed that movie. I was thinking of watching it again.

hey guys if you're an astronomy buff you should check out that star-forming clump article, mainly for the featured comment from someone working on various telescopes including the JWST. really insightful stuff about the origins of the HST and the future technology required to actually image an exoplanet.

Yeah, fascinating stuff!! The 'Hubble Space Telescope' certainly has been worth its weight in gold with everything it has been able to discover thus far, theories it has confirmed, etc. It makes you realize how insignificant we almost are in this ever expanding universe; our solar system is smaller than a yoctometer on a dust mites ass.

Another no-brainer, lets hope its better than F3 (which sucked) and at least as good as F:NV (which was really good).

Interesting/funny, as I loved Fallout 3, but F: NV fell flat for me. /shrug

Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing.

Every time I tried GTAO I found it solely populated by disruptive and/or griefing players. The heists implementation was beyond fucking awful.

Yeah, sometimes public servers with disruptive and/or grieving players can be annoying/aggravating if you're not in the mood for it, but it can be fun too. One time a crew member and I just walked out of our apartment and some guy just shot us down for no reason. We ignored it, and then he killed us both a second time, so it became our mission to seek revenge. SO, we jumped into my crew member's armored car and kept chasing him down and killing him, then took his car and kept running over him with his own car - if we didn't shoot him down first - and eventually he rage-quit. From that point forward we carried on with a nice and enjoyable online session - even though the revenge seeking was pleasurable.

A lot of people will end up with VR paperweights before this fad passes. That'll take a while however as there's too much money behind this movement at current. I have no doubt that VR will succeed one day, just not today. I still see this being of far more use in practical applications, AR in particular.

I have to agree. Similar to how the whole 3D television/monitor hype train that has slowly died off. Now it's curved TVs.



BUUUTTTT, until I try it, who really knows? /Shrug


The problem with 3D TVs: first there isn't a lot of 3D content out there to watch, and second it's just an additional layer to the presentation, it's not integral to the story telling.

Curved TVs are a fad, although I have a feeling they'll always be sold as a niche product. But they make no sense: a TV is a group device, and curving it is antithetical to that.

Curved monitors are here to stay, and will become the majority display type in the future because monitors are individual use items, so curving makes sense.

The OR fundamentally changes your experience for a rather large subset of games: racing & driving sims, flight sims, space sims, and FP horror games. And it also seems to adapt well to FP RPG and adventure games that focus more on exploration and don't require the twitch reactions of FPSs. I view it as a strong niche product like joysticks or driving wheels which change and improve how you play certain kinds of games. These have been with us for decades. The OR is less like gimmicky products like kinect which can't die soon enough.

Yeah, very true jdreyer. Good points to ponder, thanks.

Eventually cable companies will figure out that the internet is a video service.

Yup, and now we'll start getting hosed by those same cable companies when they raise their broadband prices to compensate for their loses of channel/movie package subscriptions. If you have just a broadband subscription, then your pricing will be X (higher), but if you subscribe to both broadband AND channel/movie package, then your internet pricing will be X (lower). Unless they are already doing this (?). I probably shouldn't post that idea.

Pretty impressive the way it processes the skin, lips, and hair detail and shading, but not quite uncanny yet.

But how far down the road and at what level will us gamers being enjoying all these capabilities of DX12, as consoles will certainly slow this implementation way down, unless PC becomes the primary port for games. HAHAAH, yeah right!!!! I say 4 to 6 years before we see all this fully implemented into games and running on a single video card (GTX 2180).

Character detail and animation was 'very' impressive in Crysis 3, the best I've ever seen in a FPS to date.

Great to see Rock* continuing to support the PC release. Keep the patches coming, as there is still much to fix.

The mechanics of online matching, connecting with friends and/or crew members is so unintuitive and buggy. And getting launched into a different server from your friends/crew members after completing a mission drives me crazy!

Well each to their own, right?

A good friend of mine loved the game so much he played through it twice. Me, well I got 'maybe' 25% through, but for some reason, that I can't put my finger on, it didn't hold my interest enough to keep playing and/or finish it.

Maybe I'll revisit it at some point, but after playing GTA V, not probable.
