Yeah, I guess we should just wait fpr the redux version though, right? That's so sleazy when a dev does that.

Yeah, it definitely suxors when developers improve their games. Slap

They had big steam sale on the non-redux version, then 1-2 weeks later came out with redux version with no upgrade path. These are the same devs that sell difficulty modes as DLC. They can run backwards through a field of dicks.

So Sombra is basically Tracer with a manually placed recall point and invisible power walking instead of blink? I'm not sure why they made another character like this, Tracer does not seem super popular.

Everyone bought into agile development hook line and sinker.. Unless your goal is testing this will always be a afterthought. It's great for the bottom line, and iterating a design, but not so great for quality.

This is more than just lowly app developers these days.. witness what is happening to Autodesk, Microsoft, Google, etc.

If Valve wants to get developers onboard then it should be provided support to developers and pushing for a simultaneous launch. Valve makes huge amounts of money from Steam, which would easily pay for a team of Linux specialists to assist developers. That's how nVidia gets developers to incorporate Gamesworks features.

Right now SteamOS is just a novelty that has little in the way of backing. Valve needs to ensure that at least 75% of AAA releases are available for SteamOS to make it at all credible.

Look at Codemasters' F1 series - F1 2010, 2011 and 2012 don't support Linux; F1 2013 does; F1 2014 doesn't; F1 2015 does; F1 2016 doesn't. Call Of Duty 1 doesn't; 2 does; MW1-3 do; BO 1-3 don't; IW doesn't. There's absolutely no bloody consistency.

Only Nvidia and AMD know their own hardware.. that's for them to do, not Valve.

Congrats *redacted*!

My father has been a fan for 75 years. He grew up in the mid-west and baseball is huge for him. His comment from our email this morning was "Feeling of awe.. may take me a while to adjust".

I went to bed at the rain delay so I missed the 10th inning. I was not expecting the headlines this morning at all, in fact I was 90% sure that they were going to blow it in grand *redacted* fashion.

I am hyped.. probably the only decent SP FPS coming before the year ends...

There were a lot of good FPS games so far this year, more than usual I believe. But yeah, Arkane.. this should be phenomenal.

How about a how long will the Google Pixel be supported and receive security updates from Google test?
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+long+will+google+pixel+get+updates

Thanks, but we all knew the answer already. It was one thing when they charged $350, but at $650 it is a bit rich for a device that will be abandoned in two years. (2 years if you buy now, less for everyone else.)

CCleaner hides a Chrome install and changes your default browser now. It caught me by surprise. I reviewed the install options and the custom install options. It doesn't give you a choice not to install chrome.

I just checked mine going from 5.22 (7.86mb installer) to 5.23 (7.89mb installer) and didn't get anything else installed?!

I know a lot of programs are using chrome now to render an options window or something, but ccleaner is not one of them.

This is not normal trading or market place transactions.. it's gambling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_gambling

Valve claims they can not control it, which is quite a convenient argument to defend their bottom line.

The planets are first procedurally generated using seed information. Then an artist goes in and can paint on biomes on the macro to normal level. They can also place down objects. These objects could be fully hand crafted landing zones, or just trees, rocks and people.

Chris wants no planets, or moons that are just procedurally generated. He wants at least some artist sculpting, even if it is a barren rock moon.

The terrain generating tech is 10-15 years old so it's really nothing new. It does strike me as disingenuous to label the video Procedural Plants, when 95% of what they displayed was artist created and scripted (only the section between the landing pad and the first wreckage looked procedural). Remove all that and it's NMS 2.0.

It's all about hat/skin revenu, and whatever they are pulling in from item gambling these days. The patch will probably add paid sprays like CS:GO, or some other non-gameplay related cash grab.

Never thought I'd say it.. but Valve sucks at making games now. Everyone talks about HL3, but at this rate it'll just be Pokerstars, Valve edition.

Way to have an open mind about things .... totally your choice but what if the gameplay is good with some new freshness to it and is a lot of fun? Do you just not play it cos the character you play as in charge of your own mafia is black?

Anyone who is playing want to give us some feed back.

I know that there is some issues currently (locked 30fps and some talking about crashing - that can be true for some and not for others) but the game does still seem interesting to me.

Any views (about the game) good or bad, would be good thanks. (Unless your purple, I don't like my Bluesnews comments from people who are purple )

Do you just not play it cos the character you play as in charge of your own mafia is black?

Well ya said it , why does everything today have to be black or gay or free breast , just ain't into all this politically correctnes it ruins more than it helps Clown Nothing helps if ya force it onto people....nothing!

Playing a black guy in this context is very interesting. What I hate is the disclaimer at the start of the game, apologizing to nutjobs like all Black Lives Matter followers and SJW.

Imagine a history teacher apologizing for talking about slavery back in the days.

It seemed like a well worded disclaimer to me. Of course it triggered someone.

Just pop for another 512M SSD. They're only about $100, and black Friday is coming up soon. Does your machine have room for only one drive?

500Gb 850 evo in Canada is about $220 now.. great idea on black Friday however. Samsung usually has some good deals.

80GB! Doom and DX:MD are taking up 110Gb with no DLC, another 10Gb for Overwatch and my game drive is just about tapped out.

I need to rethink my future game storage if this keeps up. I was thinking of a 500Gb SSD for both Windows and games, but at this rate 750 Gb or higher might be needed.

(Not to mention 80Gb is 1/4 of my monthly bandwidth..)

I spent yesterday going back to 8.1 on my work Macbook. After the Anniversary Update the system just became lethargic. I also noticed a lot of system settings were changed back to default for some reason and apps were reinstalled.

8.1 with security updates only for now. I hope MS can right the ship.

You know.. I get it. The last 30 years has sucked for the middle class and poor. The nuclear option is somewhat attractive as opposed to the status guo. What's bizarre to me is how someone like Donald Trump could represent that solution.

The debate said a lot to me.. He is barely articulate but somehow manages to command this online 4chan/Russian/wikileaks/400 lb basement dweller social media army. It's the ultimate manifest of the worst online behavior.
