News Comments > Battlefield V Battle Royale Plans?

At least EA has extensive technical knowledge with creating extremely large maps, supporting large player counts with intertwined gameplay mechanics, and operating the network infrastructure to support all that.

PUBG and Fortnite play cluncky and unpolished, partly because of the comparison to the standard EA has put forth with Battlefield, Battlefront, COD, etc.

*awaits a beheading for extending a compliment to EA*

Long live King Wiebe!

This makes the movie ďKing of KongĒ even more enthralling; Mitchell always came across as a sleazy winner and parts of the documentary seemed ridiculous and too convenient for him.

Glad to see the challenger, Steve Wiebe, be crowed the first player to hit a million points!

people seem to want diversity for diversity's sake - to avoid the stigma of being anti-diversity because it looks bad to people who care about such things

I totally agree.

Divinity 2 is fantastic, even supports two player co-op on the same screen with fluid translations and gamepad support. Highly recommended for console players or PC.

Both the questioners and answers have already been bought and paid for.

Exactly.

Capitalists and corporations won America a long time ago. It should only get worse from here, unless new social media technologies are used by the populous to get power back through classic, action-orientaed movements and organization (like the kids protesting for gun control). The people still have power, even in a federal republic.

But itís probably too late for that.

I prefer my close calls to have less contact. The adrenaline run to the curb looked painful.

Maybe the motorcyclist could have avoided the contact, if he wasn't trying to peel out and zip passed everyone off the line. Instead of looking at traffic to see if everyone stopped, he noticed the slow driver to his right, decided to rev up the engine, and began to swing the bike wide right to speed through the intersection with a cheeky pass. You can hear his tire chirp from the acceleration he was applying.

I know that urge, and how dangerous it is.

The closest I've ever come to being hit by a car was in a similar situation: I was lined up with a bunch of trucks at a oneway-to-oneway intersection as the light switched to green. Normally I'd drop the clutch and clear the intersection as fast as possible, but I couldn't see over the hood of a jacked up truck to my immediate right. I coudln't see if everyone stopped for the red.

I paced the truck for the first 6 feet, and noticed a blur to my right and him apply his brakes. I did too... and some woman in a sedan blew the red at full speed, missing the truck and my front tire by a foot. Probably thinking about her ex or something...

Would have t-boned me on my motorcycle at 35mph and I would not be here typing this if I let my urge for speed win over my assumptions about safety.

10pm PDT on Saturday night is the first Grand Prix of the year, live from Australia, for those curious to see the DOPE 2018 cars in action!

8AM GMT

I am ready

No sleeping in this weekend Btw, Saturday 8am GMT qualifying, Sunday 8am GMT Race. Qualifying is imo just as much a must watch.

Do you mean the actual car racing? Never understood the appeal but one of my brothers is a big race car nut and watches Formula 1 religiously.

Qualifying is a must. Enough fuel for one fast lap to maximize the usage of one set of tires, going as fast as mechanically possible for the formul, drivers skills, and the track conditions. I will never be more jealous of any profession than driving that.

There's nothing like sitting on the grid, engine revving, waiting for the start lights to extinguish, and then charging down to turn one!

I own the whole franchise, over 600 hours according to Steam.

2015 was not the worst game, but it was frustratingly not a step forward.

As for the Forumla itself, 2014 introduced the current generation of turbo V6 engines with locked gearbox ratios and computer applied KERS. So the cars don't sound great, are low on power, and some of them are boring to drive! (compared to the V8s)

...there's multiple sensors etc, that should have detected even if she was wearing black, not in headlight area, and a human driver wouldn't have seen.
^THIS!!!
Infrared, lidar, optical/camera, radar, ultrasonic and the list goes on.

We build fake towns that look like the middle east to train special forces, you can't tell me that we can't do the same to test self-driving vehicles. There should be a minimum federal government approved test before a self driving vehicle is even allowed on the road.

I'll grant you that, but these things have run millions and millions of autonomous miles before killing someone. They would have passed any federally mandated test course with ease. Like the Tesla case, it's really coding for these edge cases that's going to be difficult. Uber is going to analyze this, code a solution (assuming all the correct hardware is already in place), and this situation will never happen again.

We don't get to hear about the "near misses"; who knows how many times this would have happened over the last few years if it were not for the intervention of the human driver.

Intuitiveness is a major difference between average drivers and exceptional drivers. And I'm curious to see how well that can be programmed into AI drivers.

But sadly I agree in that the current level of AI driving ability is probably better than the average driver because of faster decision making, always paying attention, always obeying the rules, additional sensors, better understanding of the cars ability, etc, etc.

...when a female walking outside of the crosswalk crossed the road from west to east...

So a human was behaving irrationally, and the driving algorithms failed to anticipate and proactively avoid the collision?

IMO, that's how most accidents happen with human drivers...

Now waiting on 3rd generation. Sarcasticclap

This. And games. So far nobody has made a VR game that I HAVE to play.

Cockpit and racing games are pretty much HAVE to try.. they feel just so damn good.

Elite Dangerous is just ridiculous.

These are the best VR games I've played or know about for seated position without needing touch/motion controllers:

Simulation Racing: Assetto Corsa, Dirt Rally, iRacing, Live For Speed, RaceRoom, Project CARS 2

Music: Polynomial 2, Rez Infinite, Thumper

Platformer: Tinertia, Legend of Dungeon

Arcade Racing: Redout, Distance

Six-Degree: Overload, Elite Dangerous

Adventure/Puzzle: XING: The Land Beyond, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter VR

Also, the Pro supports 30x30 ft space, double the original.

As a Rift owner who wants a 37% bump in resolution, buying into the whole VIVE ecosystem is simply too expensive. Only those already heavily invested into VIVE would consider this upgrade.

Vive has better tracking than the Rift which is currently my biggest regret with buying the rift. It's not that bad but sometimes it's annoying for clipping. That 30 ft x 30 ft would actually be pretty good for my set up. But still ridiculous when you look at:
HTC Vive:
Resolution: 1080 x 1200 pixels per eye (2160 x 1200 pixels combined)
HTC Vive Pro
Resolution: 1440 x 1600 pixels per eye (2880 x 1600 pixels combined)
Oculus Rift:
Resolution: 1080 x 1200 per eye (2160 x 1200 pixels combined)

They just need more pixels per eye and should have waited.

In contrast, I only use my Rift for VR racing from a seated position.

I like the idea of roomscale VR games, but there needs to be a controller revolution before that can take off. I believe VIVE announced they will launch their new design this summer. It will then take another year for new gameplay to be released that integrates those controls.

That level certainly looks pretty enough, but the track appears fairly flat and not super interesting to race on

wipeout let the ships have mass and momentum, flying them around very unique tracks had a surfing quality to the physics. It was far from easy to control, and the original was outright punishing with wall collisions killing all speed and damaging your ship significantly

Hereís hoping they make this title with depth and not just visuals
