Also, I'm actually considering this new xbox console. I wanna play Red Dead Redemption at 4k + HDR, as it looks like it'll be breathtaking. And I think this will be the best way to do that.

But that leaves me without any games that I really care about before next spring. So I've actually been looking at cuphead, the new middle earth game, the new forza... as things to try out with my new toy this november. So I guess it'll be good that I can also play them on my PC?

But I'm of 2 minds about this, I don't really want them on my PC, I want to have to use my new toy, that's the whole point...

congrats on sounding like a retarded console gamer, whaaaa I want all my console games to be exclusive!

people crying about this are most likely using an adapter to play console games with a keyboard and mouse already.

2. LawBreakers fans on why you should play it, and what went wrong… Sep 2, 2017, 14:15 DangerDog
 
Twitch gamers are all addicted to overwatch it seems, even a highly polished "me too" game is going to have a hard time cracking that nut.

I think another factor is that PC gamers are probably an older demographic and not that interested in twitch games anymore, I know I'm not.

There's not even a single player experience for people who aren't into twitch multiplayer to pick up and play. I guess the original Unreal was a fluke.

So, if someone doesn't follow the group-think, it becomes hate-speech. Brilliant idea, comrades.

So you're hating on anti-hate speech.

going to have to crack down on you for that!

Their marketing campaign is pretty ineffectual now that I've played the demo.

I might consider getting it for the mindless single player when it's $20 but by then other better games will probably come along.

Yeah... I feel like at this point it's an experiment to get the formula right with that kind of game. Or they really poured THAT much money into it that it just has to work and keep a playerbase.

They're trying to build this up as a major franchise fit for movie tie ins, I believe one is in the works staring jake gyllenhaal.

Yeah, just ran through it and did the drop in co-op map too and was totes unimpressed with it all. The visuals are nice, as to be expected, but the sauce was weak with everything else. No maps - overhead and mini, no journal, shitty console UI is a real PITA where you can't even compare items side by each, nothing to intereact with or do on the map except get slightly confused as to where you're going and why, so you just run from start to finish with all the predictable enemy drops.

This is it? This is the much-hyped Destiny? Fuck, console players are easily impressed aren't they? This is just some bullshit hamster-wheel grind-fest. Yeah, I'll probably get around to giving it a playthrough in a couple of years when it's $5 or less. I could easily skip it entirely and likely will by that point.

What's really pathetic is the amount of money they spend; allegedly, to make these games. It seems to go everywhere but into the game itself.

hmmm, wen't down that hallway and there was a robot sweeping with a broom but couldn't go any further, the door wouldn't open.

If you bump up the FOV the hud gets cut off (it doesn't scale with the FOV setting) so I probably couldn't see the 3/3 thing.

It's always fun to see how level designers craft "futuristic" space scenes, pipes jetting out of the ground with no apparent use or reason for being there, present day fire extinguishers hanging on walls.

Played the "demo" till I got to a part where some bald dude is standing next to a door and enemies keep air dropping onto the platform... endlessly.

he pops a shield and deflects a bunch of missiles and then it goes into a loop. Is that the game or did a script break?

News Comments > MS's Virtual Reality Sets This Year
19. Re: MS's Virtual Reality Sets This Year Aug 29, 2017, 05:30 DangerDog
 
Watched some youtube videos reviewing the developer kits, seems the HP is nicer than the Acer with regards to comfort, lots of issues with the quality of the VR image.

This could kill off VR completely if the experience is poor, manufacturing defects aside it seems like they're aiming this device at first time VR users. It might be good enough to give a short thrill to minecraft players but will anyone stick with this device for the long haul or will people just return it wishing they could afford a "real" VR headset?

Multiple headset vendors with no hard set design specifications other than the display resolution and lenses? All of the headsets should be sold with the motion controllers from a developer point of view, now they're going to cause problems with regards to the type of games you make.

Everything looks so stiff animation wise, one thing that Elite Dangerous really nailed was the immersion of feeling like you are in a spaceship cockpit, here your camera POV is locked with no motion.

It's more than just having camera free look option, if they fixed this it would add so much more to the experience.

lol big surprise there


Heh yeah. Trump has left hundreds if not thousands of appointed positions unfilled, many more are still staffed by Obama people because Trump can't be bothered to actually do any work.

naw, obstructionist democrats are just looking out for the tax payer and making sure government waste is eliminated.

Despite Whole Foods flaws (i.e. mackey, the drumpf of grocery) it was a pioneer against Mindless pesticides, processing and antibiotic usage in food products. Not to mention, globally supporting lower carbon footprint agriculture and helping to establishing international guidelines.

Oddly they never seem to advertise their budget line 365 and now seem to be building a different chain for it.

They might have started out that way but have since slid into the same corporate slime pit that all the other grocery store chains operate under. Their form of exploitation is a special kind of sleaze though, asparagus water anyone?

Amazon knows what they're doing, harvesting data and money from people with more money than brains.

Amazon isn't interested in selling food, they're in it for the data harvesting and potential to tap into new Amazon Prime customers.

Don't fear the UWP, embrace it.

I believe they've made changes to MS store apps/programs and you can choose where you want to install them. That was probably the biggest issue with it that I had. They still need to work on that whole backup and restore UWP programs though, it can be done but is way too many steps.

Kind of hard to defend the whole lack of access to files for modding when many other forms of copy protection are tamper proof, like the ones used on the new DOOM for example.

Oh look how they're marketing the game now, not a hint of female soldiers in multiplayer. Only gung-ho men yelling orders, you know like it would have been in WWII battles.

Now imagine it where everyone will pick female avatar just to troll the hell out of other players.

They could fix this with a simple toggle option to effectively turn off other players "avatar" selection from your view/sounds and make the game play like this video clip but they wont dare do that.
