PC sales are tanking and windows 8 is taking the blame.

PC hardware sales down 14% in first quarter

Time to get windows 9 out! I'm not at all surprised. Consolidating you market leading desktop os with your phone/tablet os which is just tanking in the market isn't a good idea? Wow!

I have 8 on my gaming pc, and while I don't have problems, it certainly adds nothing. I don't ever use metro, and the thing defintely does not boot up any quicker than 7 did. On a desktop pc, a mouse and keyboard is just much more intuitive and accurate. Duh...


As much as I don't think Windows 8 is awesome sauce, and blaming Windows 8 makes for great headline, the article actually points to other contributors as well.

http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS24065413#.UWhnVrVzF8F

Fading Mini Notebook shipments have taken a big chunk out of the low-end market while tablets and smartphones continue to divert consumer spending. PC industry efforts to offer touch capabilities and ultraslim systems have been hampered by traditional barriers of price and component supply, as well as a weak reception for Windows 8.

...the costs associated with touch have made PCs a less attractive alternative to dedicated tablets and other competitive devices

In the United States, Lenovo outperformed the market with double digit year-on-year growth compared to the market's double-digit contraction. Shipments in Asia/Pacific declined, however, keeping Lenovo's overall growth flat.

Apple fared better than the overall U.S. market, but still saw shipments decline as its own PCs also face competition from iPads.

Quote from: JCC on March 29, 2013, 09:00:25 PM

Finished. As I feared I didn't really like the ending (though there were cool parts to it). I feared 2 things about the ending/story when I was about a third in, and sadly I was right on both counts.

I think this clip explains the nature of Bioshock Infinite universe pretty well:

Spoiler for Hiden:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzUEu7Gb7Cg

I'm sure there's a wiki or blog out there where the plot is fully explained.

My ideas so far:

Lutece twins are the same person but from two different parallel universes.  They both discover the technology to interact with parallel universes.  Comstock uses the tech to see to come up with his prophecies, but is rendered infertile.  He arranges to take Booker Dewitt's child in an alternate universe as his heir.  This gives Elizabeth powers? (this I don't know).  Comstock ties up loose ends and kills his wife and sabotages the Lutece twins equipment which causes them to be sent into limbo and the power to be in any universe.  To exact their revenge on Comstock, they pull Booker Dewitt from a different universe and have him run amok of Columbia.  Monument island is a giant siphon which keeps Elizabeth's full power in check.  Once that's destroyed, she can do to any universe and realizes everything.  And to prevent Comstock from ever existing in any of the universes, they kill Comstock at the point he is born.  (ie, when Dewitt accepts to be baptised).

So, it's the Lutece twins fault.

I really enjoyed the story of the game and thought most of the plots points was wrapped up pretty well in the ending. 

I also liked how they sprinkled the back story of Columbia and the events that led to Booker Dewitt coming to Columbia to find Elizabeth in Columbia in the audiologs.

The audiologs do make more sense listening to them after finishing the game.

I'm excited to see what the DLCs will be.  It better be more exploration of Columbia and not just some weapons/vigors/upgrades pack.

The one thing I don't like is the obvious hitting us over the head with the whole beyond mother-son relationship vibe between norma and norman.

That one I'm not sure.  Will have to look into it when I get done with work today.

I find that foliage in games has always been pretty terrible up close.  It looks fine from far away, but the illusion is ruined when you walk up close.

Anyways, liking the game game so far.  It is pretty much Bioshock in the sky and with better gunplay, but I'm in it more to hear the tale that Ken Levine has spun.

I doubt it.  Ken Levine didn't work on Bioshock 2 (If I remember correctly), and I haven't read anything that suggests the two worlds are related.

One thing I noticed watching the gametrailers review is that they were playing the PC version of the game.  I wonder how the console version looks.

I picked it because of how it integrates with Chrome and firefox. It's knows when you are signing up for a new website and offers to generate a new password and save the login information, and you can manage if it will autofill your login information.  There are a few websites that I've found where the auto login feature doesn't work.

In terms of security, they state that the encryption and decryption is done on your computer, and the information is sent to their servers encrypted to your passphrase.

Just finished the SP campaign.  Took me maybe about 15 hours, and I thought it was pretty amazing.  I would say the first half of the game was a little bit boring, but they ramp it up for the second half.  Some of the mission types were definitely not expected.

Although SCII is still about base building and micromanagement, I would say they've automated or streamlined a lot of it so that you don't have to micromanage as much if you don't want to.  I found red alert 3 to be too much for me to handle, but SCII was OK.

I'll make my final decision if it was worth it or not when I finish the campaign.  But since I don't touch multiplayer, I'm obviously not getting the most bang for my buck with the game because I won't be spending 100+ hours playing it.

I do notice that missions are taking longer to load up...

I played a few missions and so far so good.  There's nothing else really to say, it's Starcraft, if you like the series, you'll like this expansion.

But I will say that Blizzard has raised the bar again with their cinematics.  Damn, they look goooood.

had a couple of hours to kill this morning so I fired up Wings to continue the campaign.  got all set to play when the game started updating and then it said it needed to reconfigure the game files, which proceeded to kill about 90 minutes with what appeared to be a massive download frown

It's preloading about 6 gbs worth of HOTS data, even if you didn't pre-order it.  It did that for me too when I re-installed SC2 last week.  If you go into your SCII install directory\updates folder, there should be a folder with HotS somewhere.

17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Impressions Incoming! Leviathan DLC released! on: March 08, 2013, 04:11:52 PM
Yeah, this DLC is about the characters.  Once the short combat mission aside, the rest of the DLC is you hanging out with your companions from the three MEs without having to think about the Reaper invasion behind.  It gives you a proper goodbye to characters.   

There are a lot of funny and unexpected interactions between the characters.  You can also visit an arcade where you get to play ME versions of 8 bit video games, a casino where you can gamble and a danger room type arena.

At $15 it is not an instant purchase, but I don't remember they ever discount the costs of DLCs.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Age of Empires 2 HD Announced on: March 08, 2013, 03:54:38 PM
Well, the HD remaster is being made by Hidden Path, who made the Defence Grid games, so I think that's worth a little more than bargain bin price at least.

And from their description they will also be integrating Steamworks for matchmaking and use Steam Workshop for mods.

The game is worth whatever you think it is, but it looks like they are putting some care into the release.  I'm hoping they get enough sales so they get to re-make Rise of Nations!!!.

you can see some comparison of what the old and new graphics look like here

Oh, and it looks like one of the founders of Hidden Path is the original lead designer for AoE II
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Impressions Incoming! Leviathan DLC released! on: March 07, 2013, 08:27:02 PM
I thought the trailer for the DLC looked super cheesy, but I ended up picking this up anyways. 

I finished the main story mission for the game, which was OK.  It's nothing spectacular. There are some reveals that aren't that exciting. They do introduce a new gameplay element into the single player and some new enemy types. The main draw of the DLC is that you get to spend time with the NPCs from the entire trilogy, get a lot of fan service, and get a little bit more background material.  There are also little minigames after the single player mission that you can return to.

If you are a fan of the series, enjoyed the NPC banter, like the lore, and weren't soured by the ending, then it's worth picking up.

Are there any plans to release this in a box with Wings of Liberty? I haven't played any Starcraft game yet, but I'm suddenly very anxious on playing this since I now own (and enjoy) the boardgame, and would like to know more about the story and it's units.

To answer my own question: yes, the blizzard store sells a package of these 2 games for $60 or so. But that's not much of a discount I think. We're talking about a 2,5 year old game, and they're still asking a lot of money for it. I'll see if I can find a boxed copy for cheap somewhere.

You can grab Wings of Liberty for 20 bucks now on Blizzard or from Amazon.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm next! on: February 27, 2013, 07:24:00 PM
I didn't realize the game was coming out in a few weeks!!

I just re-installed the first chapter/expansion and it looks like they've updated the graphics engine and UI elements since it was first out.

And I think $60 for both games is not a bad deal.  The cheapest I've seen for WoL is $30. If you like the lore and a RTS fan, it is definitely worth the money.  They've put a lot of polish for the game, and the missions in SP are beyond the standard build base-->tech up-->destroy enemy type missions.

I heard about the promo last month, but didn't see anything from the usual retailers until last week.  I just checked Newegg, it looks like there's an option to add the coupon to your cart now, which wasn't there a few days ago.  So they probably didn't have their stuff together yet.

The game is 10 bucks cheaper over at greenmangaming ($29) versus steam ($39), and is activated on steam.  I can't pick up any new games right now, but it's worth keeping an eye on, especially since GMG has 20-30% off vouchers from time to time.

I was just going to say that we will probably see this more.  All of the rumoured specs point to systems with similar hardware and similar features.  I don't think either one will try to one up the other and go with a system that costs more money.  The only thing differentiating the two will be first party and exclusive titles and what platform your friends are going to buy.

As to the online activation thing.  That's what STEAM already does, so I think both microsoft and sony are looking closely at that model and saying to themselves, we can do that too.

How is this different compared to their 18 Wheels of Steel series? I assume it's pretty similar, the main difference being the wide expanse in places to drive, but I also assume they've made improvements in other areas. The one I'm most familiar with is the one where you have access to the US and Canada. It seems like they've given this more of an RPG feel in that you level up.

Yeah, both games are by the same company so I'm assuming they are similar games.  I didn't play the 18 wheels of steel ones, so I don't know.  The RPG aspect is that your character gains XP for making trips and level up.  The amount of XP depends on if you were on time, if you damaged your rig and if you manually backed the trailer to the loading dock.  When you level up, you can upgrade things like what type of cargo you can haul (dangerous goods, etc), fuel efficiency and stuff like that.

The demo ended for me today, I think you can make like 5-6 deliveries before the demo stops.  It is a good game, I'll put it on my wishlist and buy it when it goes on sale.

Here's a link that lists all the of changed stuff in the extended ending.

http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_3:_Extended_Cut]

From what I remember

Spoiler for Hiden:
In the original, Shepard goes to the Citadel, talks to "the kid" and makes one of three choices. The mass relay network is destroyed.  The Normandy, travelling through the mass relays, gets caught in the destruction of the mass relay and crash lands on a planet and does not fly again. The End

In the extended ending, Shepard gets more dialogue options when talking to "the kid" and there is a fourth ending choice.  There are more scenes of the Alliance fleet where Hackett orders the fleet out of the system, explaining why the Normandy was travelling through the mass relays when the network is destroyed. It gets knocked out of mass relay network and lands on an unknown planet, and there is a memorial scene for Shepard and the crew of the Normandy.  The Normandy makes repairs and flies off the planet.  The End

This game looks both appealing and boring to me at the same time. I'm curious about it.

Yeah, the game doesn't seem that exciting, but there are a lot of things to do besides the driving. 
You gain experience and level up, you can customize your trucks however you like, and manage your business.  And I think as your business grows, you can let your other drivers do the actual deliveries

Trying to drive normally in a truck can actually be tricky at times.

If you want to a try driving on the left side of the road, accept a job that brings you into the UK.

OK, I bought the game  Roll Eyes.

The hire jobs in the demo are fine, but the real meat of the game is to own your own company. I have one cheap truck and I'm the only driver, but it's a start:


I was just going to post that I got a bank loan and bought a truck of my own!!!  I like how you can set the steering wheel to be on the right or left hand side and do little things like adjust the mirrors.

Having your own truck opens up the game a little bit.  Before, when you drive for other companies, you are magically transported into their trucks with the goods loaded.  With your own truck, you pick the cargo, drive there, hook it up to your truck and drive to the destination.

and there are mods for the game

That's something that I was missing - Trucking music!!!!

I'm not a sim guy, and I didn't expect to enjoy this game.  The demo is only half a gig and is worth trying out.  The demo only limits the available content.

I think part of the reason I like the game is that it reminds me of the show Shipping Wars on A&E.  Transport something from point A to B in time C.
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Euro Truck Simulator 2 on: January 18, 2013, 04:59:40 AM
This is a game that needs a steering wheel and multiple monitors to really enjoy.  I'm playing with a controller and have been trying to fine tune the sensitivities to hit the sweet spot.  Looking at your mirrors, steering, accelerating/braking is just not natural with a controller.  If you play with a controller, make sure that it's not set to a wheel type controller.

Driving these trucks is pretty tough.  You have to worry about the trailer that's hooked to your truck and have to take your turns wider. You have to actually obey traffic and can't drive like a maniac in other racing games.  Hitting traffic signs actually damages your truck.  Imagine that.

The one big thing I would like is to have the GPS give more prompts.  I've missed the on and off-ramps for highways too many times.  And I'd like to be able to interact with things in the truck with the mouse.  Like turning the wipers on or signalling turns.
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Euro Truck Simulator 2 on: January 17, 2013, 09:24:26 PM
Has anyone seen this game yet?  It was just released on Steam as a greenlight game and as the title suggests, you drive around Europe as a truck driver.  You start off making delivery runs for other people, but as you earn more money, you can buy your own fleet of trucks, hire drivers and build your own trucking empire.

There's a demo for the game on the official website.  I've been playing it for a while, and it's strangely addicting.

I haven't opened up any of the truck empire stuff yet, but the driving a truck part of the game is pretty good.  Your truck is slow to start and stop, and you can't weave in and out of traffic.  Taking a turn too fast can cause your truck to flip over.  You can jack knife your truck if you reverse too sharply.

The one thing is that the controls are a little unwieldy and a little bit too sensitive.

I do think the price right now (30 euros/40 USD) is a little steep, but there's a demo and it's worth a try.

I don't like DRM. Having to put a disc in doesn't bother me. But things like phone home, always online, limited activations, third party software etc bug me.

I might recommend a different hobby, then, because PC gaming is absolutely rife with DRM outside of GOG and Humble Bundle (usually).

Yeah, if you are getting into PC gaming again, you will want to read up on digital distribution services like Steam, Origin, GOG and Gamestop and common DRM companies use these days (Steamworks, Securom, Uplay, GFWL).  Some DRM are worse than others.

PC games has moved towards digital distribution, and even buying a game in a store will require you to activate it online (usually through Steam).  

Some games to check out:  

Fallout New Vegas (I enjoyed this better than Fallout 3)
Dawn of War II series of games (if you are into RTS)
