Red Dead Redemption
Max Payne 3

It's not something easy to remember specifically, the average is pretty damn solid these days. I remember Lunar to be pretty stilted and meh.

Not to mention the game might be "free", but it's brimming with stolen copyrighted content.

Gaming Discussion / X Rebirth
« on: August 08, 2013, 01:39:35 pm »
I've waited a long time for high-res gameplay footage, and Egosoft finally delivered:


And they also have a release date too, 15th November. I can't wait.

In case you are clueless what this is about, X Rebirth is a space simulation and the 4th game in the long running X series. This one took 7 years to make and it looks like the wait was worth it. Their claims sound unrealistic? Well X3 already had most of that, I played it, it's real. This one will just be bigger and more epic. (And hopefully it'll finally have a good UI, the only real issue the series had).

It irks me that Star Citizen gets all the spotlight, just because they leech off long past glory and keep stirring the hype machinery.

but would people prefer this meat over traditional meat

This would never ever replace normal meat entirely. What can happen is, the poor masses will eat the ersatz-meat while the rich enjoy the real thing. With technological progress it's inevitable that with enough time the artificial meat will be significantly cheaper than the real thing. Also people living in hypothetical space stations will probably have no choice  but eat the artificial stuff. But it's probably still way better than current astronaut food  ;)

Semi related: There are also first attempts with "printing" food with 3D printers. The ingredient selection is still extremely limited, but again, given enough time I wouldn't be surprised if you'll some day "print" your own pizza at home.

I don't judge either as good or bad, for now I'm just in wait and see mode.

Sounds like you picked the wrong picture, because he doesn't quite look like a super warrior.

What else can they grow artificially from stem cells? Organs?

Getting there. A few simlpe ones are possible (They successfully grown and transplanted esophagi IIRC). If they get it to work with everything it's a big deal, since if those are grown from the patient's stemcells himself, there is no rejection. And rejection is what makes transplants dangerous.

Sounds good in theory, if it tastes the same, why the hell not.

But I'm sure PETA members and other crazies will find an axe to grind with this still, since the whole combat against consumer culture is a replacement religion and not something you can win with arguments or by offering viable alternatives.

The signal to noise ratio has been readjusted. Some people mistake noise for a good thing. Like leaving the TV on all day just to have any kind of sound in the background. And some people mistake quiets for inactivity. Neither is actually true.

Altogether that's 3 hours, care to narrow down a bit what you want to talk about?...

It's not like the game is intended to be played at that level. It's just the upper limit that the algorithm can generate that's still beatable in theory.

The series is dead to me since BoF5 anyway...

The concept is actually pretty clever, just from a technological standpoint.

Indeed, they'd need to have a pretty good model for mathematically grading difficulty and putting everything together accordingly. Especially since the game guarantees that the levels are possible to beat.

I vaguely remember that we once had a discussion on the board on how people would like to see procedurally generated levels in platformers. I think it was in relation to a Kirby game.

Well for those of you who thought it would be a great idea, your wishes have been answered!


You can skip to 12:15 for an example on how mean the levels can maximally get in the game.

Personally I do not see the appeal at all, purely from a game structure point of view. I don't want my games to have an endless supply of levels. I want a clear progression over a finite amount of content to a well-rounded finish. And then I want to play a different game. I wouldn't want to eat the same food for the rest of my life either.

I'm playing it right now. It's a bizarre design decision to be sure, and for a CRPG, the game is terribly linear. It definitely has issues. Though playing it makes you realize that this type of game (P&P infused, story-driven, CRPG) was really missing for a long time - just like Grimrock did last year for dungeon crawling. (And no, the mobile dungeon crawl dreck ala Etrian Odyssey of the last decade wasn't even near a decent replacement before that.) I'm hoping it'll spark a small revival of the genre, including some contenders who do a better job at it (Wasteland 2, Torment?). It also has Steam Workshop support, I'm hoping the community will also produce some quality content for it mid-term.

I'm on RHDN Pro if that helps.

Site Talk / Strange scrolling bug in the forum
« on: July 25, 2013, 11:25:51 am »
I'm not sure since when this is the case, but at least a few weeks. I'm using Chrome and I'm used to press the middle mouse button to turn the mouse pointer into a scroll disc thingy and then scroll through pages by moving the mouse up or down. This works on every website I know, including the RHDN frontpage. But the thread displays on the forum badly break if I do that. It seems to scroll only through individual posts or things like that. Only it scrolls the posts right outside the viewable site area. It kind of breaks things. Did anyone else have that problem?

It's not a biggie, probably some small CSS thing. Most likely not even worth looking into. But I thought I'd bring it up for R&D.

That's apples and oranges though, you don't have to be a mechanic to drive a car.

Hooking into the text routine and getting the text as data is ten times easier, why waste time on trying to push a square cube into a round hole...

legitimate question:

how does Saint's Row III evolve standards?

(promise I'm not being sarcastic or a smart ass, just curious)

It has giant purple dildos that can be used as weapons.

I think FTL did pretty well! But the thing is, they actually had significant work done on it before they took it to Kickstarter. That makes a world of difference. It’s much easier to plan around a known quantity, and few things are further away from that than a not-begun video game.

Didn't know FTL was also kickstarted. Now FTL is an awesome game. Pretty much the only indie game of the last 18 months that I still come back to.
