What I miss most is the feeling of presence I got from BF3/4, where my character seemed to have weight and the experience felt intimate (BF3 was superior in that regard). It seems like in subsequent iterations it all got glossed over; flashier but somehow cheaper and less personal.
I dont want to play a Michael Bay movie trying to be a game.
RedEye9 wrote on Mar 1, 2021, 09:52:It's a mixed bag, IMO. Some scenes really do flesh out details and make the story a bit richer, but others I could do without. In particular, Annie's gender equality comments seem forced and I'd have preferred to live a life in which I never learned what felching is. Per the advice of the movie, don't Google it if you haven't already. That scene is the reason I have to insist that certain people—my parents, for example—never watch the extended cut.
Looks like my next watch will be the extended version.

I only tried a couple Mega Man games, so YMMV, but it seemed to just add needless graphical clutter in an effort to make it look 3D, and was often quite glitchy, with parts of the extra bits flickering off and on, sometimes even obscuring original details.
Cool. But, no thanks.

That's literally all it's about. It doesn't matter what he meant to say or what he should have said or how he should have clarified the implications. It's about what was said and that it's incorrect.
It's like some PC gamers are just willfully ignorant. [...] Every topic about this is filled with the same fundamental refusal to understand.

What you don't get is that you're killing me and my family when you bring the shit home that you selfishly contracted [...] Should your victims be considered weeded out while you, the stupid fucking selfish asshole, remain alive?

Has anyone been pushing for shutdown until a vaccine is developed?
Simon Says wrote on May 23, 2020, 21:00:This really isn't difficult. The lowest price for a 2080 system is the annual at $25/month. The cheaper plans don't have a 2080. And you still seem stuck on the notion that the hardware can only be used by one customer. That's just plain dumb.
Nobody will pay by the month if they keep it for 5 years. They'll take it yearly, that means 144$/year, even after 5 years, you're still deep in the red ( you'll have barely paid for the GPU alone @ 720$ ) when you consider company expenses + initial hardware investment. And after 5 years, that 2080 won't attract anyone that they're targeting, they'll have moved on to much better hardware.

Sounds just like you are renting the hardware...
whitelined wrote on May 23, 2020, 15:30:Exactly. Of course they're not dedicating an entire gaming computer to one customer and leaving it idle when not in use. Cloud services depend on pooled resources. What you're renting is a virtual machine that makes use of some portion of the attached hardware.
I'll hazard a guess that the "dedicated PC" you get is allocated from a pool, and it's only dedicated once you're using it
jdreyer wrote on May 8, 2020, 15:08:You're thinking too deeply, but only in comparison. I wouldn't mind if more thought went into the game, but it doesn't seem like that kind of endeavor. It looks like it's just Serious Sam with dinosaurs.
Or am I thinking too deeply on this?
