I never understood the attraction of tweets. Then again, I am old.

I love it as a way to get quick info from a company to see if there's a problem. For example, when Battle.Net is down for some reason, they usually post. I sure as hell don't care what all the commoners are tweeting though.

Reason I am asking is that I would think this could become a huge issue if oculus games and vive games suddenly have mutual exclusive api... so you are always locked out of some games...

Someone already got the Oculus games (Luckys Tale and another one) working on the Vive, and apparently they work really well. Will most likely break with patching, but it seems Oculus isn't going out of their way to block it.

Both my headsets due to arrive today. Rather annoyed that the Rift took so long to ship, but the DK2 has been keeping me busy.

I'm not sure they even have toys with Happy Meals anymore... If they do, they're probably not worth a damn, like CrackerJack prizes.

They do, they aren't. Every once in a while they have a decent toy, but it's very rare. Lately we've gotten toys that you could build on a 3D printer. They're pretty crap.

News Comments > New Borderlands Confirmed
23. Re: New Borderlands Confirmed Apr 23, 2016, 11:46 Frijoles
 
I wonder if they'll add more than 3 enemies to this one. Let's see.. it was humans (some short humans too), those dog things, and some robots. Did I get them all? Maybe they could buy some pre-made ones on the Unreal store.

I burned out of Borderlands. The oxygen thing and gravity was too gimmicky, IMO. Not enough enemy types. The inventory interface was shit. And yeah, a gazillion weapons, but you're stuck using your level 3 weapon you got 10 hours ago.

The changes from the previous beta are night and day. They did a great job on the character progression stuff, although seeing "Shop" next to the loot box concerns me since this game isn't F2P. I'm looking forward to the game.

That's August, not April, Blue.

Unfortunately. On the other hand, the alpha is a bit buggy. Still enjoying it though. WoD is a total failure.

News Comments > Sunday Patches
3. Re: Sunday Patches Apr 17, 2016, 21:33 Frijoles
 
Makes me wonder if they could get it to work with the current Battle.Net. And if they can't easily do that, then it can't easily authenticate players that are paying (I'm guessing). Battle.Net has changed a fair amount from the vanilla days. If I'm in Legion and my friends are in Vanilla, would they show up in the player list? Could I message them? I'd like to see a Vanilla server, and BC for that matter. Hopefully they give us more details about why it's so bad at Blizzcon. Someone will ask about it.

There needs to be some kind of give and take if texting were allowed.

They mentioned forcing them in to the back few rows. I'd be fine with that. It'd be like getting stuck in the botting /cheater section of an FPS because you fail at the social parts of life.

That video was really cheesy and making me cringe. Also, why didn't they use moving 360 video instead of a still photo? Did they just do a quick panorama image search for whatever before the presentation? As much as I like the idea of using a VR headset to virtually visit other locations, this didn't sell me on it.

I felt like Infinite was easily the weakest of the 3. It's DLC tying back into the original was nice, though...

On the other hand, Elizabeth IMO is one of the best NPCs I've ever had following me around. They did a damn fine job on that character.

I still wouldn't turn it off. They absolutely cannot be trusted anymore. Figure out another way to make money.

If the keybindings are still fucked up, remember to bind the key you don't want to keep. Basically, let's say you are ESDF. You bind E to move forward. It now shows W,E as your keys. Bind it again, but this time press W. It will remove the W.

Was really screwed up in the last alpha weekend. And seriously, how do you screw up keybindings? Were they not tested at all?

I've never experienced motion sickness and I think I'm getting motion sickness just thinking about this.

I hung out in my DK2 all weekend. No issues with motion sickness. Loaded GZ3Doom up and wanted to puke within about 30 seconds. Looked neat, though. I'm wondering if I had it set up wrong.

Also, Hyper Light Drifter is fantastic. Buy it, play it, love it.

Sell me on it. I've been eying it. I'm not usually a fan of pixel art, though, unless the gameplay is amazing.

Meh, wasn't Shattered Horizon doing this a half a decade ago? Doesn't look bad, but nothing really impressive IMO. I guess the difference between this and SH is you can go inside the ship and steal it.

Upside of a password manager: complex, autogenerated passwords you don't have to remember.

Downside of a password manager: rules out seriously using new browsers which don't support your password manager's plugin.

Even worse are god dammed websites that don't let you paste in to the password box. Your fucking CSS eyeball shit is not as important as my secure password.
