"Realistic physics in games will never catch on. Lara Croft would keep falling over forwards."


majedi - Notice that you're doing something rather different from Skate-AK. You are objecting to the *content* of an "agenda". Skate-AK was objecting to having an "agenda" in the first place - which is self-defeating, since objecting is, itself, an agenda.

Not that there aren't answers to your objections - for example, you can *aim* for people to be treated equally, but acknowledge that people *aren't yet* treated equally. There's no contra... #5.1.2
I'm not the one you asked the question of, so my answer isn't relevant. But I understand - *you* can ask about people's motivations, but no one else can ask about *yours*. I'll make a note of it, I promise. My apologies, I just didn't know the rules. :-) #2.2.2
Alien: Isolation, too. #2.3
But your comment is completely agenda-free, of course. :-) #5.1
If it's not your thing... why are you even posting? Let alone dropping bubbles? I mean, you've gone beyond disinterest to active hostility.

I mean, I've got no use for most multiplayer games, I'm mostly single-player. But I don't vote down or hate on COD and such. Why do you even *care*, let alone care that much? #2.2
I look at my backlog as a defense-in-depth against impatience. #1.2
The article says that the PC used to be the "gateway to gaming" for kids, and now it's mobile. Thing is, I've got four kids, that happen to spaced about two years apart each. And I can confirm that - all of them play plenty on mobile.

But the older ones still play plenty on the PC. I have to kick them off my computer on the regular. And so far as I can see, the younger ones are 'graduating' to consoles and PC over time.

This may not... #1.2
I wonder if it can implement something like "Time Warping":

It'd need geometry information, though. Not sure how the PS4 would send that... #3.2
Yeah, but there were still definite issues. Like climbing ladders steals control from the player - no big deal with a monitor, really disorienting in VR. Menus need to be redesigned, etc. How do you transition to and from cutscenes?

Don't get me wrong, A:I is really close, like 80%. The core gameplay is there - but getting that last 20% of polish takes another 80% of the development effort. #2.1
"delve in to configuration files"? When was the last time you actually *tried* Linux?

I've gotten several of my relatives on Linux. They use Firefox and Chrome, Thunderbird for email, etc. Can do Word files, spreadsheets, etc. They don't have to edit any config files, and all their hardware "just works". (Heck, Linux is better than Windows in many ways. For example, if you plug in your mouse to a different USB port, you don't have to reinstall... #2.1.1
I just remember they gave Alien: Isolation a 5.9 and Terminator: Salvation a 6.3. Whatever criteria they're using, it doesn't match mine.

That said... Mad Max looks interesting. Might pick it up eventually, but Just Cause 3 first. #23.1
TDP isn't a huge concern in the gaming PC environment. (If it were, nobody would bother with SLI.)

AMD's issues have mostly to do with drivers. Their drivers have been... problematic for Windows. And I like to run Linux, and only use Windows for games. (Though less of that, lately.) AMD's Linux support has been lackluster at best.

Nvidia's Linux support has been quite good, on the other hand. So I've only ever considered Nvidia hardware fo... #1.2
Really well done in almost every respect - AI, graphics, level design, just the look of the station. Some people complained about pacing, but I thought they captured the feel of the original movie quite well even in the pacing. #1
Yeah, JC2 is pretty cheap now. Give it a try, if you like it, you'll know you'll love JC3. #8.1.2
Of course, it's not like these are *new* Windows installs. They're just updates to the latest version of Windows. So, yeah, "duh". But things are changing.

Borderlands 2, Shadow of Mordor, Metro 2033 & Last Light - playing on Linux. Even Arkham Knight is announced for Linux. Companies are porting majr games *already*.

And then there's the big deal - the new Vulkan API. Even closer to the metal than DirectX 12. Vulkan drivers will be... #10.1
There was perhaps a bit too much padding, but I wouldn't say the second half was superfluous. Maybe the game should have been 75% of its actual length. The later portion where you don't have to worry about the Alien - I found it refreshing. You could use techniques that weren't possible before.

And the portion where the author claims things were scripted... I didn't experience that. I had to reload a couple times and things happened differently each time. The... #2
Yeah, it's running all right on my system - also i7-2600K, 16GB RAM, but GTX 970. Haven't gotten too far but no glitches yet.

I wonder if they just managed to get it working, and ran out of time to actually optimize it? #2.1
Tron 2.0 was a better sequel for the original movie than Tron Legacy. I'd love a sequel to that game. #2
Just downloaded it last night from the same deal. Ran okay for an hour or so. We'll see how it behaves after the first challenge mission... #9.1
Don't get me wrong, HZD looks exceptionally promising, and I will be following it closely. But one early trailer, however awesome, doesn't make a game a must-buy.

Remember Aliens: Colonial Marines.

I don't see any warning signs of that happening here yet. I just need more than an impressive trailer, that's all. #4
