Nobody in the US takes esports seriously

That's not even remotely true.

I guess I've only seen thousands of "fans" watching esports live in arenas in places like Korea and China.

Let me know when Starcraft becomes and Olympic event.

Booted it up once and didn't like what they did to the movement, why couldn't they just leave it the way it was from Tribes 1 and 2.

So from here on out they're only going to make games for the Korean market?

They can't be too happy about the Battlefront game EA made for them, it's failing faster than Titnfall.

...from what I've read some of the planet based instanced stuff only shows up if you're driving around in the SRV - you can't see any of it if you're flying over the surface in your ship. I've read that it is working as intended and not an issue with the beta.

This is apparently no longer the case, as of yesterday. Ship-detectable Points of Interest are visible from the ship if you're close enough.

that's good, should help a little from flying over planetoids devoid of anything interesting going on down below.

They finally learned from their mistakes and released a trailer with actual gameplay footage. Looks fantastic.I haven't played since the long range missions were insanely profitable, getting me over $100 million in 3 days. Now seems as good a time as ever to jump back in.

I guess I missed the gameplay portion, doesn't really point out what you actually do on the planets other than fly and drive on them.

from what I can tell it's going to be extremely thin on planet side activities, feels like they're pushing it out the door to meet an arbitrary deadline they set to have it out before the end of the year.

It's extremely cool from a tech demo side of things but it's still going to lack the persistent living universe that David talked about in the second kickstarter video. Too much stuff is instanced, also from what I've read some of the planet based instanced stuff only shows up if you're driving around in the SRV - you can't see any of it if you're flying over the surface in your ship. I've read that it is working as intended and not an issue with the beta.

I'll be glad when this MOBA game frenzy is over, it shouldn't take too long with everyone and their dog releasing one.

The is not the MOBA are you looking for...

but rather just another uninspired shooter #948793287.

oh, I thought that pvp was only a portion of the game and they were going to put pve into it. my bad.

Two things I'd do to revive the Windows Phone, make it a completely open platform to develop apps for modeled after the beginning of the PC from the 80's including the ability to purchase and install apps from anywhere (direct from developers site).

Allow people to run android apps on the phone including the ability to side load apps.

The best part of Star Wars Battlefront is it only contains content from the original trilogy, the game has amazing visuals and sound that captures the Star Wars atmosphere pretty well.

Once you take all that in you're pretty much done with the game, most people will grind out the weapon and card unlocks or reach max rank of 50 and feel like they've won the game.

It's about a 40 to 50 hour game by design.

They can't win though, if they had made a reskinned version of Battlefield people would have bellyached about it. Giving people the ability to drive AT-AT's would have been a hot mess. They could have destroyed the cinematic themes of the battles from the movies by creating some sort of giant walker for the rebels to use, that would go over like a lead balloon for sure.

I have a 970 and when I get around to buying a VR headset, probably the Rift consumer release, I was figuring I could just buy another 970. Splitting it up with one GPU driving each eye seems like logical approach, but I haven't been really paying attention to this stuff much, is such a setup feasible/practical?

probably only if a game is rendering using DirectX 12 and even then it might have to support something like that through special programming.

Sounds reasonable considering the system specs of SteamVR

SteamVR uses a pair of 1200x1080 pixel displays to offer a wide field of view. The displays refresh at 90 Hz, which is fast enough to do away with most of the motion sickness issues found in earlier, lower refresh VR headsets.


I still prefer TrackIR though.

There's no getting away from needing to transition into your ship without a scripted animation, it's a neat effect the first couple of times but they need to speed up the animation considerably - like getting in your car in GTA V type speed. There should also be a way to bypass the full on walking through your ship to get to the seat on entry and exit.

Neat tech demo but on a whole it's a long, long way from hitting the mark on meeting expectations - unless you've lowered them to "Derek Smart" level of game production quality.

I checked out Samsung's tablet offerings this year and I couldn't believe they released 9.7 tablets with 1024x768 resolution for a premium price, I think they're going for around $360.

Even if it were $100 that resolution is beyond stupid.

I know not all of the spyware stuff is app related but it seems like you can avoid most of it by just not using their metro-apps in the first place.

I purchased the A-10 warthog sim from DCS a long time ago, then I realized what I had actually purchased. Watched a video of the take off procedures, I'm all for detail in sims but this thing is nuts.

I split a gut watching this giant bomb video of these guy trying to get off the ground.
