I really hope they don't focus too much on the physics/platforming puzzle stuff, but they have to expand upon/modernize the gameplay somewhat, so it will be interesting to see what balance they come up with.

$60 for a game with almost zero content. *slowclap

Any bets on if "updates" = pay for DLC?

As stated above, all updates will be provided at no cost to prevent segmentation of the playerbase.

the only thing they are planning on charging for in the future is pets you can get that are purely cosmetic. they pushed back releasing these to focus on core content, or at least to appear to be focused on content first.

I was a fan of Shenmue, so I am pretty stoked about this. Not sure how much longer the drive on my Dreamcast is going to last!

That said, eh, I dunno if this is going to make a huge splash with PC gamers this many years later. It was a very different game, I can't really think of another like it and it never saw a PC port (that I know of) unlike games like Final Fantasy VII etc.

The only people who are gonna buy this are nostalgia nerds and people who have heard about the series and never played it before (probably a number in the 10's to 100's of thousands), perhaps in preparation for the sequel thats coming out soon. Even if it sells only 10k copies, they will make money from this. They literally didn't do anything besides add higher res output and combine both games on one disc. It's basically like playing the games through an upscaled emulator on your console, likely sourced from the (excellent) original xbox re-releases.

Hard pass if those are the guys making this. You'll probably have better emulation on your cell phone.

Ebert did say "video games can never be art", which I agree with this dev is an asinine statement.

he was part of the movie industry though, and that was the prevailing vibe in hollywood throughout the infancy of video games in the 60's-90's, so it is understandable where both sides are coming from, but that statement was made in 2010, and it was obviously just a statement made in angst.

10 VM's at once?! I must really be using my system wrong because the other day when I was using a Linux VM it nearly brought it to it's knees. I mean, a Core i5-750/2.8, 14gb DDR3 and a 1050ti/4gb isn't exactly shabby. Then again, as RedEye can attest, my drives are just tad bit fragmented (and full), so maybe that's why. I guess it's time I did some spring cleaning on the old girl. Eight years old now and still goin' as my daily driver. I really can't complain, it's been the best system I ever built. *shrugs*

It's a Xeon E5-2690 v2 with 128GB of DDR3. It was specifically built so that I can use it to fully emulate stacked clusters before I rolled them out in to production. I also happen to game on it.

I got a stacked cluster you can "roll out into production" right over here, buddy.

I've been sitting patiently waiting for the next generation of GPUs to land to build a new computer. My CPU is a i7-4700K, ram is 16 gigs DDR3 and using a 500 gig second generation Intel SSD with a 980 Ti.

Its been working well on everything so far but I'm looking at a full upgrade and the caveat is the next generation from 1080 Ti..

So people that are in the know for processors, how did the new intels versus ryzen fan out and do you see these overtaking?

Save your money and wait for when gpu's and ram come back down in price from the ridiculous levels they are at now. 1180ti should be out by then, and your system is still really great for gaming overall until that time comes. (I have almost the exact same specs, but with a 4790k @ 4.7ghz and 1tb sandisk ssd.. been thinking about upgrades too lately and after a bunch of research it's just really apparent this is absolutely one of the worst times to upgrade or build a new PC)

If anything it makes me want a modern PC port of the PSP remake. They did a really good job bringing X1 to 2.5D with that game.

PPSSPP is your friend =) great emulator and sometimes I will take my save file from the psp itself and just continue games on there if i'm at home.

looks like i'll be trying rdr for the first time on the x then.

kind of disappointed to hear about the x patch though, as it seems to indicate that the rdr remaster release that many have been hoping for (with pc version), isnt going to happen. if they were gonna release an updated version of the game, they would not patch the older one for x.

edit: damn, thats quite the visual upgrade: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyoUtEmzCl4

Making it vertically oriented would actually be a really cool concept. If they did that, I might be interested.

this would be *very* hard to do without making it a camp-fest for those that are farther along than the others, unless military style weapons are taken out entirely.

Leaked transcript portion from BossKey's meetings:

BK: "Jim from the mail room said he had some ideas he wanted to share with us. He was *the* really big fan of our last game, Lawbreakers, so let's give him a second to share his thoughts"

Jim: "Dude, lets do a mash-up of Fortnite, SmashTV and Dave Mirra freestyle BMX with that 80's synthwave look that the hipsters are buying up!"

BK: "That's brilliant! We'll make back the production costs on this turd from the vinyl sales alone!"

Man, to think I actually own this and haven't got a clue where to even download it nowadays (wasn't on Steam nor GoG.. so sod it)
Probably through rockstar directly like mine is. The social club thingy. Probably got it through one of the same sales I got my copy

GmG pre-order for like $42 or $46. Came with a million spacebucks too IIRC

Gta online also has a bunch of story-type missions you can do with groups of 2-4 players that are a great deal of fun and have the excellent production quality of the single player, for the most part. Heists also are fun to play through once or twice. Having a group prepared beforehand will lead to much less frustration when try to play through these though.

Even though it took over a year to show up on PC, this game is perhaps the best port to ever come from console as well. Wish they would have shown the same love to GTA IV on PC, it's still a fucking mess.

With Apple ditching Intel for their own chips in macs here in a couple years, Intel is sure to have some surprise "innovation" soon in the iGPU side of things. Perhaps the recent alliance with AMD to mix in their high-performance/low-power GPUs has something to do with it.

Facebook.

It is silencing activism against the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.

An example of the things Companies should not have the ability to do.
I'm just waiting for the EU's GDPR to go into effect so I can request all data be permanently deleted and have that be legally binding. It will also guarantee that Facebook provides all data it holds you, as currently it can claim it does without any legislation to compe it to do so.

Facebook went from being a useful method to keep in touch with friends and family to be a parasitic marketing tool used to manipulate people and silence political discussion by placing users in echo chambers. I've already uninstalled the client and moved to Messenger Lite to avoid the egregious advertising introduced to the main client. I honestly don't miss it at all.

I never used the client. First thing I do when getting a new phone is uninstall it.

New phones come with fucking Facebook as part of the phone o/s though. You cannot simply uninstall without rooting, but you can uninstall any updates to the Facebook app, which is also a bad idea because you now have an outdated and vulnerable app on your phone that could be exploited potentially if not updated. Rooting is the only way you can be sure to kill this weed.

Sure you can disable it. Package disable pro

Only works on samsung phones. HTC/LG only here, maybe i can find something similar

Another prime example of why these leftist millennial morons should not be making decisions about the future of anything.

These guys are the Heart and Soul of what makes up today's CNN / MSNBC and the like crowd.

Our beautiful peacock Timmeh has added another straw-man feather to his partisan plumage. Such a magnificent bird.
