What I want? First thing first, I don't want "PC gaming" to be handled by "Team Xbox", come back when that matter is sorted.

The smaller project will involve only one planet, will be a survival game which require you to find food and craft tools and weapons. It won't have quests and NPCS and will be called Star wars 76.

News Comments > Can You Actually See Ray Tracing?
24. Re: Can You Actually See Ray Tracing? Jan 16, 2019, 09:03 Spektr
 
Back in the days when Quake was released, all the noobs were crying that Duke Nukem looked better than it because the Quake characters were super blocky. They just didn't have any clue that Quake was a true 3d game while Duke Nukem was really just an advanced 2d game. Who was right? The ones who could tell the change of paradigm or the kids who thought Duke Nukem was cooler and looked prettier? Both games are retro vintage games nowadays but a game like Quake ushered in an era of 3d games and internet multiplayer games and Duke Nukem lives on in the lovely memories of the players. Today, Raycasting is a new change of paradigm. Whether it will be the RTX or another generation. It's coming for sure and it will eventually take over. The question is when. And whether you can see it or not is really a matter of the developpers really skilled at "hiding sharp angles". They are making the most out of Screenspace reflections. But as someone who's dabbled in game development on an amateur level I can tell you one thing, those reflections suck and they limit creators in that they need to take time to hide their limitations. If Raycasting become commonplace, there is a lot of time spent coding and designs reflections, but also light and shadows that will be spent focusing on other stuff. Raycasting means levels and game can be designed differently but that is not the kind of thing you can see on a game that makes it an optional feature. Yeah you could compare it to Physx and their torn clothes feature, well that's different. Physx is a proprietary tech and Raycasting is a technique that has been around for decades and that doesn't belong to nVidia. It is bound to be accessible on all kinds of hardware.

Anyone has a clue why they are using float numbers to refer to their development lines that increment with a 0.5 value and start at 2.5?

I would add another design motto which seems to be all the rage with AAA publishers these days. Especially Bethesda. "What can we cut, what is superflous" or in a word "streamlining".

If you look at the (de)volution of Bethesda games since Morrowind, there has been more and more of that in each and every game they have released since. Even the critically praised Skyrim suffered from it.

Thank the Gods there are still studios like CDPR out there that buck this trend and actually care about gaming quality over production values.
Aye I (almost) totally agree with what you said, I would just replace "Morrowind" with "Daggerfall"

I never understood whats so great about ARK. Its DayZ with dinosaurs that look like reskinned EverQuest models.

Well it's a bit more than that, both Dark and Light and Conan exiles derive their gameplay from Ark's

Why is this ban "silly, hopefully nonserious", Starbucks coffee is overpriced unhealtny crap. Is there a reason to have it at work when you have the choice to bring whatever you want
Anyway everyone is using nespresso capsules these days. Very overpriced, unhealthy and unecological but at least it's good coffee.

"Ronald Reagan LSD probe bigger than you think, 14 nuke sailors snagged"

Wow, I thought I was already high on LSD while trying to make sense out of that title lol (The ultimate clickbait: A title so confusing you had to click to get what they are talking about. But I am glad to hear Reagan is not actually involved in that sordid affairs)

It should show up under gifts and you should have notification.

claim it as a gift through their Battle.net account.

Destiny 2 will be free to claim and download

You don't need to go to the store and try to buy it.

Ok thank you, I'll give it a try.

Beth made it better.

This and the fact that Skyrim, if a bit disappointing for long-time fans, wasn't the disaster that was the Diablo 3 launch.

Just log into your BattleNet, get it from there.

Actually I just did that. They just announce the standard price and when clicking on buy game I arrive on page with "game cannot be purchased at the moment". What a mess! Whatever, I don't really need to play this game anyway, even for free. Got a whole list of games waiting to be played on Steam and GOG already...
