That art style is just heinous. A more accurate title would be something like Hentai Dungeon.

News Comments > Blade Runner Returns on GOG.com

Great, great game. Had the multiple CDs myself. They did a really good job at capturing much of the atmosphere of the movie as someone said. I love the little touches, like being able to step onto your apartment balcony and watch the flying cars go by. The sound was really well done too. I can't remember if the Voight-Kampff test you can administer was actually functional or if the outcome was just predetermined. Still cool though. Only thing that bothered me was that the Harrison Ford knock-off character's trench coat was way too short. Like only down to his knees. The one Ford wore in the movie was much longer and looked much cooler. But I suppose nothing is perfect in this life and I will just have to let it go. Someday.

Physical therapy is the only thing that worked for me. My doctor gave me a set of basic stretches and after I did them every day for a week or two, I got better, and this was after I'd been essentially paralyzed from the pain. The trick is, to remember to do them even after you've recovered, because I get lazy and stop and then sooner or later the damn thing comes back again.

"Going Porcelain" is ... a very odd name. But I'm not sure "Broken Porcelain" is all that better. What exactly is it supposed to convey?

Is there any other liberal rag worse than Polygon? Jesus, their bullshit is physically nauseating.

What line in the article did you find so offensive?


I can't answer for Cutter, but I'm pretty far left and I find a TON of shit about Polygon offensive. Like this for instance:


https://www.polygon.com/2018/10/23/18015434/gog-twitter-wontbeerased-hashtag

This article is about a "transphobic" comment GOG tweeted.

Transphobic, you say? Gosh, that sounds pretty hateful. Wonder what "transphobic" thing GOG tweeted?

Are you ready? Are you ready for the hateful thing they said? (Trigger warning for sensitive readers: you might not want to read past this point).

GOG tweeted:

“Classic PC Games #WontBeErased on our watch. Yeah, how’s that for some use of hashtags.”

In other words, they took a twitter hashtag that was being used to criticize some Trump administration policies against trans people, and used it to describe their own attempts to keep classic games around.

There's no fucking hate or fear in that tweet, period.

The fact that Polygon is routinely willing to accuse others of being phobic or hateful when they clearly doing no such thing, is reason enough to avoid reading anything in Polygon.

This actually seems to capture some of the essence of what made the original movie so scary. Also does a really good job of demonstrating how scary a wooded environment can seem. On my radar now.

The problem with ALL Lego games is that no matter the source material, the gameplay is all pretty much the same.

That depends. Can something that is already dead ... die again?

It's a philosophical question.

So they won't use wikileaks material if some pops up? Doubtful...

Also a nice example of genetic logical fallacy. It's not about the source or how it was obtained, it's about the content and whether the content is accurate or not.

Wikileaks has been acting as an extension of Russian intelligence for years now. ALL of their "leaks" during the Clinton/Trump election were favorable to the Republicans and negative to the Democrats across the board. They were also selectively edited to put the DNC, etc, in the worst possible light.

It is against U.S. law for a candidate to accept material help from a foreign country during an election. What the Trump campaign did was illegal and they're only getting off on the technicality that the relevant laws say they have to know it was illegal.

Whatever they said they knew at the time, they HAVE to know now. By refusing not to accept help from the Russians again, the Trump administration is refusing to follow the law ... not that that's unusual for them.

B-b-but her emails ...!

This is one of the rare cases when a hyped game goes south on launch, collects a lot of hate, and yet still somehow manages to right the ship and weather the storm and come out sailing (relatively) smoothly in the end. Good on them for sticking with it.

Whoe goes for this kind of cartoonish look? I love isometric games but I'd rather they be a little bit better at providing some atmosphere ...

Mordecai Walfish wrote on Mar 11, 2019, 07:02:
I've had a 3D vision monitor for 6 years now and never used it once for that, but after reading this thread am torn between buying the glasses or just putting that money towards a vr headset in the future, if that can do 3d vision just as well. Wish the glasses weren't so expensive, and theyre probably just going to go up in price now with the feature being discontinued and glasses/monitors not being made anymore. vr is maybe the more appealing option of the two because it doesnt need the combination of a monitor that supports it and goggles, just the headset has it all, and newly made ones can likely easily support what the current ones are doing with the 3d vision compatibility stuff.

Just to play devil's advocate, there are advantages to a monitor over an HMD. Those in favor of the former would cite higher resolutions and better refresh rates over an HMD. There are also some games that aren't playable in SBS mode, meaning you can't play them in 3D on an HMD. Finally, it takes a lot of processing power to run SBS 3D on a virtual screen--so depending on the game, better frame rates playing 3D games on a traditional monitor versus an HMD.

Personally, I'm happy I went the VR route, because although all of the above points are true, VR brings other benefits to the table (one I didn't expect was the number of boxing/exercise games I'd actually get into--you can get a semi-decent workout playing some of these games.) And even just for 3D gaming, when I'm in a room looking at my monitor, I'm in a room looking at my monitor. It just isn't as immersive as having the screen floating in a black void right in front of you.

But yeah, pluses and minuses either way. Also, we haven't seen what gen two VR headsets are going to be like, but they're on their way, so if I hadn't bought one yet, I would definitely wait to see what's around the corner.

What's VR got to do with 3D Vision, which is a TV standard?

There's a (relatively) new wrapper called 3DMigoto. It allows 3D Vision to be run in SBS 3D (side by side 3D). This means you can run these games on any VR system like the Rift or Vive (even, with some extra software, Google Cardboard). When you combine this with a virtual screen program like Virtual Desktop, you end up with a giant 3D screen you can curve around your head ... it really makes you feel like you're in the game. I actually like it more than many "made for VR" games. Resident Evil 2 is amazing in 3D. If you have an current or older Nvidia card, remember this if you ever pick up a VR HMD.

Very unfortunate. After using 3D Vision for many, many years. Playing immersive games without 3D Vision really doesn't give me the kick anymore. Not sure if I will eventually stop playing video games all together.

Luckily I still have a huge backlog of 3D Vision compatible games, I need to play first, before I have to worry about the fate of 3D Vision.

You won't have to stop. There's a whole community of people dedicated to keeping 3D Vision alive, even with the loss of support from Nvidia. Thanks to them, I'm currently playing Metro: Exodus in 3D on my Rift and it's pretty damn awesome.

EDIT: whoops. Didn't realize these were quoted in the first post. Sorry about that.

Maybe by next-gen they can drop ray-tracing & all will be well...let's get back to doing something that makes games run & look good.

not sure I follow you. 3D makes any game look 10 times better. on the modern titles like gta5, witcher3, tomb raider etc without 3D it looks like you just turned the graphics off...

It's true. I started playing AAA titles like that on my Rift in 3D and it makes the whole experience much more immersive. I can't go back to gaming on my monitor now, unless it's an RTS or isometric game.

It's more than a "fad." Whether it will succeed as home entertainment or not, no one can say, but it's already becoming established at the enterprise level in terms of product design, architecture, etc. This is in spite of a certain segment of the population who seem to be cheering for its demise.

Honestly... i spend all my time wanting to ditch the dang gang,, they are all completely low life losers.,, the dialogue and the stupid crap they say to each other... the idiotic crap they make you say... its just LAME.

The writing has always been the weakest link in any Rockstar game. They spend so much time and effort and money to craft these breathtakingly vast and intricate worlds ... and then they just churn out the weakest, least believable dialogue ever. Whoever the fuck they get to write their stuff needs to be fired yesterday.

Is some of it entertaining? Sure. Are there moments of brilliance? Sure. There was a lot of stuff in GTA V I liked. But most of it is just ... random bullshit. Characters who have no actual character, no consistent or believable motivation behind their actions, shit that happens just because someone thought it would be funny if X happened, dialogue that doesn't rise to the level of some grade Z straight to Youtube video ...

I know people remember RDR very fondly, but after a couple of hours I just couldn't take the shitty writing anymore and quit. Ever other line in that game was some variation of "--but the federal gub'mint ... " bla bla bla. And that "romance" ... talk about lame.
