I've just jumped back into this game after an 8 month hiatus. Over 700 hours in a game will do that. Still love it, can't wait to load this up.

I may pick this up for my Vive as well. The only really bad thing I've heard was that it doesn't have melee.. But you can pick up objects like pans and what not and hit a zombie after it's "dead"..

So, hopefully they add it in an update.

beware! this game locks content behind a cpu wall. as in, intel paid the devs to lock content from this game until March if you're not running an i7 CPU. i wish that were a joke.

Seriously I find that VR is just not ready for the gaming public. Overpriced and poorly designed, just a waste of money at this point.

Overpriced: in the realm of tech, $800 for a first gen anything is a pretty decent pricepoint to hit.

Poorly designed: first gen, live and learn, make it better next time, no one nails it on the first try. (first gen ipod touch excepted)

waste of money: My experiences with the VIVE have been worth the price of entry, YMMV.

Yeah, Trump's not a fan of consumer protection laws or agencies. Problem is, the "free market" only works where there is competition, and broadband has virtually no competition for many Americans. This presidency is going to be terrible for pretty much anyone that isn't already mega rich. Expect to see some draconian legislation that makes SOPA or PIPA look like child's play slammed through at some point. Americans really F'd up this time. I don't care how "shady" or "unlikeable" Hillary was. Trump's going to put a hurting on everyone except corporate interests.

And net neutrality/protect the internet was a topic that could have really helped the Dems this time around and they left it alone. Young people care more about the internet and the thing connected to it more than almost anything else. Frame the issue as if losing puts it's very existence under threat and they'll be excited to vote for you. Hopefully the don't miss the opportunity again.

The switch looks like a stinker.

It may be a stinker, specs-wise, but if they price like they should, $200.00, then I'll be buying one. I think that $250 is probably going to be the number though. Nintendo needs to lower the bar of entry to play their, mostly excellent, 1st party games. hell, i'm even glad they are going the flash memory route for their games. faster loading times please! We'll see if they drop the ball and try to price the console with $150 tablet specs for $300.

No idea why 3rd party companies are releasing products only on the (as of right now) inferior VR solution.

It is possible the "inferior VR solution" has easier API tools.

Truth, Oculus API tools are greased with cash and the blood of virgins and firstborn children.

If you live by a Microcenter, they are closing out baseline last model MBP 13" w/ retina for $1,099.99. That's a fucking outrageous deal, considering the new ones are suspect and freakin' expensive. Get 'em while they last.

But they weirdly made him enough money to do other movies, all of which look stupid but most critics seem to find less stupid than the video game movies.
His video game movies did NOT make money. They dont had to. Boll used a german tax loophole, where investors could write off large sums when they invest something in a movie. The movie had to be produced and released to gain from this, but in no way it had to make money in itself. The tax relief was the goal, not the movie making any money. And as this loophole was closed ... Boll stopped churning out video game movies, did nothing for a while, than made two films with his own money, tried several crowdfunding projects (none reached its funding goal) and now he's FINALLY done with terrorising the world with his "movie making".

Are you saying that a movie could make more money if it bombed? Excellent, I've been working on a script, it's called Springtime for Chris Roberts... guaranteed bomb.

I picked up an Oculus last week and just tried this last night. Not sure I can ever play it on a standard monitor again. It's pretty awesome.

Welcome to awesome land, sir. Great to have you.

An aside to the VIVE users. This new update + SteamVRs version of asynchronous timewarp (which you can get by opting into the beta of SteamVR) offers a significant perceived increase in performance for ED. Still not as good as the Rift, but MUCH MUCH improved.

There's a HMD Quality setting now in ED. Switch that baby to 1.25 and off you go. night and day difference, and this is with a gtx 970. Sure it runs at 45fps and in reprojection mode (only so much a 970 can do), but it feels smoother and the visual fidelity is vastly better. Feels like I got a new video card for ED. pretty awesome stuff.

Last Guardian? What's that, a new FPS?

Seriously though, I would love to read a postmortem about why this took so long.

There's bound to be at least a dozen of those, probably from Polygon alone, not to mention everyone else.

Love to play Battlefield but I'm not about to supplant my decision to never use Origin, "it's really not that bad a platform" bleating not withstanding.

I'm with you on the boycott, but, BF1 is the first one that's making me waver in my steadfastness to never install Origin. Wish me luck, I shall try to hold out.

Looks like yet another underpowered console (that finally gets Skyrim, and does it get mods?).

Dear Nintendo.
Keep your mobile gaming market. Kill off your consoles and start making your awesome IP's for other systems/pc's.

*wonders how long before a kid looses the controllers*


Raw horsepower isn't everything. Sometimes you have to scale the power back a little to bring up other areas. This is obvious by what Nintendo is trying to do with the Switch. It's also obvious with cars where what good is 1000HP if you can't hook up? You'll end up getting beat by someone with <= 500HP.

The Switch looks incredible in every way and I will be pre-ordering this ASAP.

Indeed. This won't appeal to the Bluesnews crowd, but it does seem very nicely targeted to how most casual gamers -- which is basically everyone in their teens, twenties, and thirties -- play games these days. And from a hardware design standpoint, the seamless transition between different usage modes is very, very cool. Whether it's effective at making gaming wherever seamless, or just a gimmick, remains to be seen though.

Pretty sure it's the latter. No one is going to want to carry around yet another device. I don't see anywhere that this can connect to the internet. Does it replicate other tablet functions? Is the screen multitouch? People will expect these things. And cartridges??? The '80s called, wants its tech back. And those minicontrollers are unuseable.

It's interesting that this video is pitching this to adults, when children are much more the target audience. Hard to imagine adults shelling out for this for their kids though, when a tablet offers gaming and so much more functionality for much less money.

Don't get me wrong: it's cool tech. It's just completely impractical.

Agreed on most, though I think too much heat is being put on the cartridges, or rather as they should be called, a cheap flash drive w/ proprietary connector. Give me flash over a disc any day of the week.
