System power does make some coding easier as you can strip away code meant to fit things within those limits, our shuffle resources around to hide issues.

To be brutally honest, all of you sound more miffed and ass sore over Bethesda than anything else. So much so that you are unwilling to even give a thought to what is a fine argument.

It seriously sounds like the worst ranting we saw in the console war threads. Okay, we get it, Bethesda does some shit work. Call them sloppy, sure, but don't call them lazy. But you know why they keep all that buggy code? Because it still works. It runs on these 7 year old systems and probably doesn't take a lot of resources, that's why the code stays in.

Good hardware with simpler features does mean cleaner code. Maybe not in Bethesda's case, but when we're started this argument it was as much about the general improvement, including Bethesda.

Episode 5 gets a little wonky where they jump into the supernatural with psychics. A few episodes prior Dorian was talking about auras and negative energy. You don't need to believe in souls and auras to be human.

As someone who really, really hates how some of the best scifi of the past 10 years were brought down to stupidity by crappy writing that uses supernatural elements and vague, meaningless biblical writing style. They're only skirting it so far, but I never liked it when this style of scifi resorts to this, I just hope it they don't focus on it in the future.

There's plenty of classic science fiction where they can pull ideas from if they need ideas. Heck, even Minority Report managed to justify precognition in their crazy way via a classic scifi writer.

Also, anyone else find it funny how comically bad the MX line is as doing their job? It's like that entire line is both incompetent and made by the cheapest bidder. Meanwhile, Dorian shows super reflexes, strength, and can take rifle fire all over and come out okay. I don't know about you, but I'd rather have a crazy, but capable android over a useless bot that's only good at being a liability.

Voting system was flawed from the beginning though. They showed the poll numbers before you voted skewing the results.

Anyway, Camilla Luddington using her American accent, must be practicing for another role but that was strange hearing it. Also makes her way hotter demonstrating her acting skills.



That's her real accent. She has to put on the full British accent, which is why it's pretty uneven in Tomb Raider.

yes, don't you watch Grey's Anatomy like my wife forces me to do?

And now turning this into the Camilla Luddington thread. Apparently she lived equal time in the UK and US, so had to learn both at some point, but yes her American accent is probably more natural. Must be why her british moaning while getting beat up in TR were so annoying.

To be honest, nothing left to say about VGX other than that it was mostly a disaster, better than the stage show with paid seat fillers, but still having lost even more. Namely, they lost most of the decent reveals they used to have which drew people.

When Nintendo reveals nothing but a new super easy mode character for DK, you know it's bad.

I think companies will just wait for their own events or the big events like E3 now.

Lucas will find a way to inject his taint right into the squishy core of these movies. His taint will be the lost artifact that Indy is hunting and an animated CG rendition of his taint that will become Indy's new sidekick.
167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 07:32:46 AM
That's 3 for 3 where Sony has dropped the ball in terms of interesting footage or reveals for their games. We know they have stuff in the works, but where is it?

Was it just too soon from the last updates for things like inFamous?
168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 01:56:53 AM
Because they couldn't afford anyone else.

As for ACM, they need to keep it overall positive since it is a marketing piece first and foremost. Still, if they could, they would definitely give ACM or Infected Survivor Stories that top (dis)honor.

Kinda sad that they didn't show the Strider titan doing a special move to get out of the situation.

Overall, will not be surprised if the show goes away entirely next year. No one is debuting anything interesting, which is why people watched.

Then again, it could just be one of those times due to the new console launch. Everyone too busy working on their new stuff, which is taking longer due to the generation switch.
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2920 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: December 08, 2013, 01:49:20 AM
Apparently the fix is just to disable 1080p output and force the system to output 720p, and let your TV's upscaler do the work for now.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 01:47:45 AM
spike.com/vgx was stable and had good quality. Only twice has it had minor stutters.

edit: beaten

Anyway, I can see why companies wouldn't put their best forward if this wasn't being televised. Not that being televised on Spike meant much.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 01:35:10 AM
Let's just hope this will cap off the meme and GAF lets it die. It's getting a bit old.

I just have stream window small and muted on my other monitor while I work on other stuff now.

It's a bit surprising nothing from Sony was revealed today, heck, very few big announces or reveals at all. No new games from MS, none from Sony. Heck, we were expecting some kind of Uncharted 4 footage since that's how they did it for the last 3 games.
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 01:26:22 AM
Already buying on PC, and we just have to wait a year before they make a Titanfall 2, you know how Activision does this sort of thing.

Oh wow, what the hell were they thinking with that GTA music thing?

And Thief has me interested.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 01:02:04 AM
Heh Pewdiepie.

A lot of people hate him because of various indignant reasons, but I've always thought he's a fun personality to play games with.
176  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Mysterious Glowing Creature Filmed in Bristol Harbor on: December 08, 2013, 12:56:10 AM
You can tell it's CG because the glow is directly around the creature, and it's uniform, like it's overlayed on top of the 2D image on screen. If it was really glowing, the water would scatter some light, and it's own glowing form would occlude various parts.

Creatures that glow also tend not to glow uniformly, having cells in certain parts that glow.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 12:53:07 AM
Problem with Spore was that it was 5 overly simple games in 1, instead of one game with content procedurally generated content.

Don't need to see Dying Light, I know I'll probably buy it since they announced 4 player co-op. Although I do hope that the story is better this time around.
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Telltale and Game of Thrones! on: December 08, 2013, 12:49:54 AM
Well, they already have nudity in the Fables game, no reason they can't have huge sexposition scenes in the adventure game.
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 12:43:11 AM
Yep, No Man's Sky looks great.

ok, The Division is giving me a hard on...

Looks pretty.. but what is it about?

Secret Agents setup by the government just in case there is a fall of civilization. Their purpose is to keep order until things get sorted out.
181  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Mysterious Glowing Creature Filmed in Bristol Harbor on: December 08, 2013, 12:36:55 AM
Wow, that is some very obvious glow CG added on to that footage.
182  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Indiana Jones 5 in the works on: December 08, 2013, 12:35:04 AM
Well, if Lucas still has some control, let's just hope he's tired enough of filmmaking to not try to pollute that.
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 08, 2013, 12:30:14 AM
Yeah, on a mobile handheld game using old assets. Although I suppose a kickstarted adventure game might be the same.

And so much for that The Division gameplay.

185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2920 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: December 08, 2013, 12:24:17 AM
But, apparently you care enough to do a little chirping yourself.

I do care, it looks worse even when not zoomed in.

Thankfully the gameplay has retained some parity, but now imagine playing a dark atmospheric game with that?

If want this talk to stop, stop being such an easy mark about it.
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 07, 2013, 11:54:06 PM
Okay, that Bioshock Infinite bit between was pretty funny.

Overall, I like what they're doing with the acceptances and other in-game gags a whole lot more than the jokes the hosts are telling.
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 07, 2013, 11:46:46 PM
Quantum Break time powers, as expected. I wonder how far they'll take it, maybe more gameplay centric like Braid or some recent games that do crazier stuff, or just time variations of video game powers. Singularity already did a bunch and had a pretty good story, let's hope they get this working well. It certainly looks good enough, although I keep expecting Alan Wake to appear and start spouting melodramatic monologue.
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tomb Raider on: December 07, 2013, 11:35:12 PM
Now everyone gets to experience next gen hair! Tongue

I do hope they worked on the hair though, the normal effect looked great, but there's scenes in the game where it just doesn't match.
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 07, 2013, 11:32:57 PM
No idea. But Cranky Kong seems like super easy mode, similar to the White Tanuki Suit from the recent Mario games. I think it's a great idea to include such. It's a good option for when you're playing with someone too young, or is an absolute beginner to games.

Anyway, Camilla Luddington using her American accent, must be practicing for another role but that was strange hearing it. Also makes her way hotter demonstrating her acting skills.

190  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / VGX discussion on: December 07, 2013, 11:05:58 PM
First announcement for the VGX is the Telltale making a Tales from the Borderlands adventure game.

Then next gen Tomb Raider, with dynamic air and foliage tech.

And new Reggie is out from Nintendo.

PS4 has sold over 2 million units.   You don't have to go to war for them anymore. 

And the XB1 has sold 1 million. You don't have to get so butthurt for them anymore.

If I recall, the FIFA stuff was mainly a lot of phishing scams right? The kind that isn't exactly hacking network security and more like exploiting human stupidity and greed.
192  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: December 07, 2013, 03:33:05 PM
Nah, this is supposed to, in some ways, pull players from Halo. It's different enough for me. Everything is less super military, and more space knights with assault rifles.

And at least they're not reusing the Covenant like halo 4 did. Pfft, Storm Covenant.

193  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Indiana Jones 5 in the works on: December 07, 2013, 12:20:53 PM
Lucas has also given up all control of his films when he sold Lucasfilm, so I wonder if that means he'll no longer taint the movies.

A lot of the stuff people hated in Crystal Skull has been directly attributed to Lucas and his equal stake in the series with Spielberg.
194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 4 - Nuclear Winter in 6 days on: December 07, 2013, 08:28:30 AM
Eh, I wouldn't worry.

Fallout 4 is definitely happening. Bethesda won't abandon a cash cow like Elder Scrolls and Fallout. I mean, they hired a separate company to make a between game with Fallout New Vegas. They will make a new Fallout and new Elder Scrolls. This only means that it will take a little bit longer.
195  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Final Fantasy VIII (8) getting an remastered release? on: December 07, 2013, 02:33:38 AM

Oh and releasing a utterly crap MMO and wasting money redoing the entire thing.

197  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2920 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: December 05, 2013, 06:10:29 PM
A new wired article says that the Wii u sold only 460,000 over 6 months. I haven't checked the article for details on the numbers though.

Also, it's fine for MS to ask for some kind of parity. I think Sony was doing the same thing with the ps3. But I do think that's what led to more arcade titles showing up only on the 360 until Sonny opened its checkbook for the specific indoors it's known for now.

Edit: found proper info on this. The program that MS has that requires parity also gives the Dev free access to the xb1 SDK, not sure if that includes a devkit system. Seems reasonable enough to ask for something. However Sony has been letting indie devs borrow devkits for free.

Follow the person missions are a lot more bearable now since you can use Eagle Vision and tag your targets, this way you don't even need to keep them in line of sight anymore, since you see them through walls. You only focus on keeping in range.
199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2920 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: December 05, 2013, 02:43:26 AM
And the reason you believe the XB1 and PS4 will be more successful than the Wii U long term is because this short term success being an indicator of their preparedness. The Wii U may have sold 3 million in a month, but the XB1 and PS4 have sold about 3 million in 1 week and a few days.

I think launch numbers, followed by launch game sales, and a healthy number of announced future titles coming out across a nice spectrum of 2-12 months means quite a bit. And why there is so much support for these is because they are selling so well.

If you bring up the Wii U, we can talk all about how the Wii U had very few if any games people wanted or bought, very few announced future games from third parties, few announced first party Nintendo games. Heck, it was only a few months ago that Nintendo said they would be putting actual money and effort into producing more first party games.
200  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2920 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: December 05, 2013, 02:13:27 AM
Yeah, Wii U sold, but was run by idiots. We also have to see attach rates for these systems.

Sony so far hasn't acted like idiots.

MS got their act together and pulled the XB1 together enough to get these sales.

Launch numbers do matter, but only if the company behind it takes advantage of it. And when a company does take advantage of it, it sets them up for much great success.

Following the mantra of click-bait articles is just as bad as mindlessly jumping to the conclusion that launch means everything.
