Gaming Discussion / Re: Steam entering the next stage

I can't find any source for Steam Machines being nvidia exclusive. This is a comment by nvidia just from yesterday: "Brian Burke: As far as your question about us landing in the Steam Machine, that is up to Valve."

As for video drivers on linux sucking, that has been the case for the longest time, but X is in the process of being replaced and SteamOS right there is the kind of thing that will give it the developer attention to really get things done once and for all. Valve would not done this if they didn't think the tech was ready. Everyone told them digitial distribution was a shitty idea, they did it first anyway and look where they are now. They were one of the very first western devs to make a major game free to play and look how that turned out. If they believe in this, then shit is real. They always take the long view too, it might not take off immediately, but they'll stick to it until it does.

Also AMD just announced a new low level graphics API that might just change the whole ballgame completely too. It'll put most of the responsibility on the developer and away from drivers and OS, so it might just get rid of the issue entirely.

Exciting times for PC gaming all around.

Well at least if this was announcement #2, it's very likely now that #3 will be a game.

Just please don't let it be L4D3 >_>

It might also be a big cop-out and the second reveal could be the controller, announced seperately...

People of our generation are just so picky.

Time is limited, and gets more and more so as you get older. Games are in virtually unlimited supply though. Do the math.

In the first of three big reveals, Steam just announced SteamOS:


It'll be their own full-screen, controller-focused OS for PC gaming on TVs. And it'll be based on Linux.

The final reveal will most likely be the long rumored SteamBox hardware. Though I'm really curious what the remaining thing will be.

Also, why are the W and M characters thinner than the other letters?

Because it's a small fixed width font, and if you make the lines bigger they'll blur together and can't be distinguished anymore.

That said Gonzo have done some reasonable stuff

10 years ago. They only produce horribly overproduced craptastic-CGI-filled messes nowadays. This will be unbelievably bad.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Sega Sammy's buying Atlus
« on: September 18, 2013, 04:27:49 am »
Is Atlus USA part of that deal or are they a seperate entity? If they are, I think we'll less localizations from them in the future. Sega doesn't handle the overseas market too well. This is bad IMO. Sure I'm glad they didn't go console exclusive, but Sega is nowadays a bottom tier publisher in my eyes.

This was the first game where I truly realized that Bioware can only do one thing and that all their games are utterly interchangable in terms of characters and story. Everything else about the game, the gameplay, the dungeons and the presentation is pretty good though. I did not regret playing it and I even didn't hate DA2 as much as most people. Will look into DA3 when it is cheap, my Bioware boycott thanks to ME3 still stands so they won't get another $50 from me, that's for sure.

In Europe it was level pegging or possibly even beat out the SNES in places

Who told you that? The Megadrive didn't have half the market presence and shelf space of the SNES. Pretty much every single child I knew growing up had a SNES, one had a Mega Drive (additionally to the SNES). Yes, I know anectodes aren't evidence, but I've never heard anything contrary to that either. And it got worse after the 16 bit era, I didn't even know there was a console called "Saturn" until I heard about it a decade after it was released through emulation.

I think a help thread would quickly be buried on page 20 when no one would find it again. That kind of thread isn't that common.

I wouldn't mind re-naming (or locking and restarting) Gaming Progress to Game Chat.

We don't need 20 sticky topics, people will make new ones instead of posting in them often anyway. Threads that are interesting to people will stay near the top by their own accord, like Gaming Progress and Victoly are doing.

Gaming Discussion / Re: About offering physical rewards through Kickstarter
« on: September 09, 2013, 10:54:02 am »
The costs should be included in the target goal of course. If you want to raise 100k for your project and the goodies you hand out will cost 20k, then you should make 120k the target. Projects that do not include those costs are either suspect or poorly planned.

I looked into hacking this game back when I started out, looking for projects. I remember it would have been a nightmare to get all the infos into the tiny spaces you have per card, I'm going to have to take a look at how you did it :)

Absolutely amazing stuff guys :beer:

Another thing to note about hibernation - IF you are using a SSD, it's pretty damn fast, you won't notice much difference to suspend to ram.

I hope the game is better than that terribly bland character art.

There are also RTS, MOBA, MMOs with PvP, Coop Hack'n'Slash games if you hate PvP that much (Diablo, Torchlight et. al.), Fighting games, Collectible Card Games (Hearthstone looks kinda nice, wish I had a beta key, I hear good things about Scrolls though it supposedly takes forever to play and grow your deck). Just look around for something that suits you. FPS is hardly the only thing out there.

I feel that way about most jRPGs.

The solution is to just leave that stuff behind and play multiplayer games. There is a reason most of the money in the current generation is made with online mulitplayer. Those games are just longer entertaining and also always exciting. It doesn't matter if it's your 5th or your 300th game, you never know what will happen next. (Unless it's a very crappy game).

I don't give a damn about the 3D, so I wouldn't mind a cheaper version with no 3D, but that design is just atrocious.
