Yeah, they've basically quadrupled the graphics processing power. The XB1X has 40 CUs, while the Radeon 480 has just 36. That's $250 right there just for the graphics. It's actually smart that they're adding 4x GPU power, so 4K games will be smooth as silk.

Uhhhh no. They are already doing checkerboard and dynamic upscale tricks with their own first party games. 4k on a fucking Intel box with a 1080Ti has frame dips, let alone a piece of shit Jaguar CPU with a runt GPU. This thing will be lucky to be consistent with 4k (not upscaled!) at 30fps.

This is like the jump from an XB1 to a PS4 Pro, not "4k silky smooth". The few games they will get to 4k/60fps will spend months being optimized, something most devs won't bother with for the soon to be third place platform.

We're ready to show off our Jaguar core powered 4k console!!!!

With Minecraft.

The Microsoft showing was pathetic, they're down 2 AAA exclusives next year. Just awful. They need to get their fucking act together and provide some real competition to Sony and Nintendo.

Nothing does, we shouldn't put anyone to death. I would rather my money goes to imprisoning them for life, its a much harsher penalty anyway. This is the part where you cry about wasted tax dollars and I reply with I DONT GIVE A FUCK. You're a member of a society and sometimes we do things for the greater good of society even if it means a sacrifice on our part. Fucking deal with it or move to a third world country.

I would tell you to use your brain but I already know the outcome of that scenario.

The Switch success, just shows you that people seem to like mindless drivel Mario games.

The only Mario game is a fucking racing game. What people do like is one of the highest metacritic games of all time, Zelda Breath of the Wild. I've played BOTW and its the real deal.

I'm not even sure if you're a troll account or just actually like this. Fucking embarrassing.

News Comments > Ubisoft Financials Reveal Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2
16. Re: Ubisoft Financials Reveal Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2 May 17, 2017, 07:48 Redmask
 
I'm so fucking bored of Far Cry and the mindless Ubisoft open world formula. You're going to get map bombed with icons and activities, most of which will be repetitive bullshit. The same boring gameplay with zero challenge and a shitty story that overstays its welcome. Ubisoft has made a factory operation out of generic open world games, they're the fucking acme widget makers of this industry.

I hope Activision manages that buyout and just runs it into the ground because at least in death perhaps some developers will start smaller studios and do something original again. Oh and Ghost Recon: Wildlands is not popular in the slightest, look at the metrics hes using. Active player count died a long time ago. It's a game with no soul or passion behind its creation, just guys ticking boxes off.

Would be nice to see actual sales figures for ME:A compared to the previous games.

ME:A had the same issues as DA:I. Too much focus on scale, not enough on quality. Bioware is really bad at open-world design and ME:A would have been better off if they made it a 40 hour game instead of a 100+ hour game. It would have been far more polished and free from the burden of half-assed filler.

There's no point in doing an open world game without environmental storytelling unless the sandbox itself is compelling. DA:I even did this better than ME:A. Just driving around aimlessly from outpost to outpost is not a good loop for the player. The problem with these fucking huge studio efforts is that they focus too much on 'stuff' to do and not enough on whether that stuff is actually enjoyable. ME:A was like playing a Ubisoft game at times and that's not a compliment.

This game ended up being a glitchy, boring mess when it could've been much tighter and more enjoyable. It doesn't make for sexy game trailers where you boast about huge massive your open world shit is but at least people will like it.

News Comments > Mass Effect Series on Hold?
2. Re: Mass Effect Series on Hold? May 10, 2017, 21:42 Redmask
 
Agreed Creston. Somehow they managed to go to an entirely different galaxy yet introduce little new of interest. Truly forgettable cast, pointless open world with practically no environmental storytelling, dodgy writing and an overall decline in quality in pretty much every respect save for combat. Player agency made Mass Effect interesting but somehow they managed to make even that feel an afterthought in this entry.

People get all caught up in whether the haters are just too harsh or its fans too forgiving. It's not a bad game but frankly its not a very good one either and for this series that's just not acceptable. I think a hiatus is good, let people have a break and this game to fade from memory. Whatever they come up with next needs better writing and some player agency again. I don't play these for the mediocre shooting mechanics and Force power knockoffs.

Yes, that's because Freesync sucks and people are willing to pay for quality. If you don't believe me then go ahead and get that monitor, you will regret it.

GSync is superior which is part of why people pay a premium for it. It's an also LG, that's why the price is so much better. Even their OLED TV sets have major problems with motion processing and their bootloop issues on their phones is well known. If you want to see even more serious trash then check out their appliances. They make good panels but the actual processing and build quality matters too. Buy something that uses an LG panel but isn't subject to the rest of their shitty supply chain. You get what you pay for. Go ahead and buy an LG, I'll see you on here in a year when its defective and LG tells you to piss off.

Split was disappointing, M.Night films would be better off with somebody else directing them.

Split was fantastic and he did a great job directing it. What he sucks at is writing human dialogue but that's ok in the context of his strange 'universe' for these characters.

The foreign workers are generally better performers at their job as well, in my experience.

Uhhhhhhhhhh lol. Nearly every company I've worked with has experimented with H-1B and its usually a disaster. Customer satisfaction, interaction between teams, hell pure competency all go down the toilet. Companies are only doing this for cost but sometimes quality work costs more money. Corporations are fucking lions who eat their young.

I don't know what percentage of people you think are professional athletes but let me assure you that people in Texas worshipping football do not have a material impact on the tech sector. What a strange complaint.

Potential NBA point guard jdreyer shops himself around to NBA teams. Confused as to why there are no takers.

Yeah? Have you shown the capacity to develop into an NBA point guard through some athletic achievements?

Potential doesn't mean "literally anything is possible". Words have meanings, stop butchering them.

No, we're going to keep butchering words on the internet irregardless of how much fucking crying you do. Someone with more time than me, please go through this anal retentive Jeopardy reject posts and find some hypocrisy to amuse us.

Bwahaha!

Yeah, I dunno. I enjoyed The Force Awakens a lot. I loved that movie. I also liked Rogue One, although not as much as TFA. I'm really, really looking forward to episode 8, have been since I saw episode 7.

Yeah everyone loved TFA. They loved it the first time they saw it 40 years ago.

could also mean that they don't want people to look into the PC demo's data files and uncover spoilers before the game's released?

Yeah I'm sure that's their primary concern here, the internet spoiling the ever important storyline to the re-rebooted Prey game Rolleyes

At the risk of injecting civility into the discussion (because it looks some are foaming at the mouth; looking at you Agent-Zero). I think we're talking past each other. It would be good to establish some facts so that going forward we can at least discuss this on about the same level. Here's my response:

Did the Airline do the moral thing? [ ] Yes [ X ] No [ ] Maybe

Do U.S. Citizens have civil rights on a plane? [ ] Yes [ X ] No [ ] Maybe

Do U.S. Citizens have consumer rights on a plane? [ X ] Yes [ ] No [ ] Maybe

When U.S. Citizens purchase airline tickets, do they enter into a private agreement with the carrier? [ X ] Yes [ ] No [ ] Maybe

Does the airline have the ability to revoke or modify a ticket for any reason? [ X ] Yes [ ] No [ ] Maybe (A person entering into a business transaction with each carrier follows a contract. For United Airlines they have 30 rules)

Can the police request and then remove by force any non-compliant person? [ X ] Yes [ ] No [ ] Maybe

No one gives a shit what the airlines rights are, clue into what the fuck the big deal is about. Their stock didn't tank 1.8 billion because people care about the airline, its rights or what the police are allowed to do.
