News Comments > Oculus Home Warms to Steam

What they need is a way to have oculus games be installed on a any drive you have vs the one you set oculus up on originally.

You're probably already aware of symbolic links. Pain in the ass, but they work. It's hard to believe anyone would put out software that doesn't allow you to move where the files are located. Even their SDK was pretty bitchy about it's path for a while (under DK1).

Also, while nice to have, this change above isn't a big deal. What I want is for Oculus games to work in Vive without jumping through hoops and using Revive. Some games are cross-compatible, but not many.

News Comments > Activision Blizzard Results
2. Re: Activision Blizzard Results Aug 3, 2017, 21:10 Frijoles
 
No mention of Heroes of the Storm. I wonder how it's doing. They keep pimping it which makes me think it's dying.

Blizzard had Q2-record time spent. In April, Blizzard launched Uprising, an Overwatch seasonal event that included a player-versus-environment mode that drew record play time.

Hope this means more of this. I really enjoyed it. I want something a bit longer though and not so wave-like. Like an MMO. Bring back Titan!

I should create an account with the name LiveOnTwitch. Nobody would kill me. It's the perfect plan.

Shall we take bets on how long until they nerf his one-punch insta-kill? They took it away from Roadhog only to bring it back on Doomfist. I'm guessing about 6 months.

House Party, Sexy 3D Game Removed From Steam Due To Complaints…

Leave the shit games because reasons. Get rid of the pixel titty game because other reasons. Maybe they could just create a filter for adult content and have it default to on. Nah, too much work.

The case centres around Milwaukee Country, Wisconsin, which adopted an AR ordinance back in February demanding developers behind games such as Pokémon Go purchase a permit before their apps could be used in the county's parks.

Milwaukee County was asking developers to estimate crowd size as well as the dates and times these crowds were likely to descend upon the parks. Studios were also required to specify their plans to handle on-site security, medical services, garbage collection and even bathroom use. And the developer would have to pay $1,000.

Me thinks they have no idea how this game works. Not that that would stop them from legislating it.

I have that camera. Can confirm. Facial recognition is shit. It picks up the shadows from my trees and alerts me. Picks up bugs flying around at night and alerts me. Picks up a cat walking past. "We spotted someone!!" Their algorithm appears to be "was there movement?"

Great camera otherwise. Nice clear picture.

Okay, I gotta ask... what were her arguments for it?

The dryer sends a push notification when the laundry is done. VERY IMPORTANT.

That's exactly what it does (the washer too) and one of the reasons she wants it. Let's you see in real time what temperature it is drying at and the progress. Or to put another way, something completely pointless. Or rather, something that will break down and not be easy/cheap to fix.

Wife wants a smart-phone connected washer/dryer. I'd argue with her, but imagine that's how people felt when TV remotes came out. Someone is going to hack my dryer and burn my house down.

Not sure if this is accurate, but worth at least looking in to further.

If you're out of the loop, when the game first got hype, some users were voicing their complaints about the similarities to WarZ (Renamed: Infestation Survivor Stories), Shattered Skies, Last Man Standing and Romero's Aftermath. These are all games made by Sergey Titov, a man well-known for creating shitty cash-grab games.

The engine appears to be the same. They're saying no other relationship though. I'll definitely wait for reviews on this one despite it looking interesting.

Wonder if it's still under NDA. I rather enjoyed it off and on. Needed a lot more players though. I stopped because I didn't want to repeat my progression when it launches.

What more does it need to do?

Get a new interface/GUI team. Throw the old one out of the building. Just a few of my top complaints:

  • Someone messages me. I alt-tab to Skype and start typing. Oh wait, I'm in actually searching contact names. You know what I use Skype for? Sending messages. Why the hell isn't that the default behavior?

  • Message comes in, I read it. Alt-tab away. Task bar is still blinking that I have a new message. Sometimes it starts blinking even if there isn't a new message.

  • My contact list has duplicates in it. Sometimes the duplicates go away, but if I message the person, they come back. They use different icons too. Messages to either contact go to the same person. I don't know wtf it's doing.


  • I don't use it for phone calls very often. Thank god.

    Was thinking the same thing. It's not like he's going to be God-mode against the other characters. Maybe he'll be a raid boss instead of a playable char, like the Halloween event. That'd be an interesting change.

    Unlimited storage for crafting materials

    Biggest reason right there to get it. I haven't played for several months, but people were activating Plus for a month to get the crafting bag, shove everything in it, then let it lapse and accumulate crafting mats again. I believe new mats wouldn't go in, but old mats were fine.

    What I worry is that this will (again) make developers make the first 2 hours completely awesome and the next 20 complete untested broken shit.

    About how long my attention span is. Excellent.

    I wonder how many got hit with WannaCry, restored their systems, and then didn't patch the security hole so now they get to repeat.

    Jumped on to play this, saw nothing different. Apparently you have to start a new char. May try again tonight, but the character graphics and animations are showing their age. Makes it harder to get back in to.
