    Are you using a single monitor setup? Is there a hotkey functionality to disable it temporarily for games that don't have one built in (Elite does, so it wouldn't matter there.)

    Maybe I'm just used to driving a car, but I don't find the off-center cockpit disorienting in the slightest. I also do archery so I guess maybe parallax is my jam? But I'm not good at archery so I...

    Agreed. I wasn't saying it should be interesting or surprising. I'm disagreeing with the notion that it's a new thing in gaming.




    Do you watch the World Cup?

    I guess I don't see how one is more "free." It's just a different kind of free. Attempt time trials on any of the maps and you very quickly realize just how many different ways there are to traverse...

    The explosion of Let's Play is kinda great. Someone can now play the game right up to the Meat Circus, quit having been properly forewarned by their friends, and then just watch the ending.

    Counterstrike's community was particularly legendary for being awful. Before CoD, I remember it being the go-to reference point for immature gamers.

    What's this nonsense about Mirror's Edge requiring you to be a CSS pro-level player with wall-hacks?

    Also Battlefield has the squad system which mitigates things a lot. You can form a squad of chill people and ride out the noise in peace, in comfort, and with efficient tactics.

    I'm not sure I buy the "mod support is inherently worth money beyond attracting customers who want mod support" nonsense anymore than I understand why a developer would be desperate to stop mods form...

    Mod support has never stopped companies from producing DLC nor from including half-assed reuse of assets in their DLC. If anything mod support encourages them to borrow stuff from the community and...

    I didn't say it was monopolistic. And saying "developers already API optimize their cards" is a bit meaningless in this context. It doesn't change what I'm saying.

    Here's (very roughly) where...

    I wasn't under the impression I was ranting. I'm also not criticizing them for what they're doing, I'm criticizing the argument that AMD is so much better than Nvidia because look at how nice they're...

    I don't know a lot about what G-Sync does differently, so I yield to you on that one. The point stands even if the example was bad. The point is that just because they make something open doesn't...

    Hmm. That sort of goes against what Carmack seemed to be on about as why it is so awesome. But that could be that you're right and that Mantle just really isn't very interesting at all. But then...

    How useful is it in practice to them? My understanding was that it was supposed to be fairly low level. Which means it's basically useless to other architectures that have their own ways-of-doing.

    On GW2: My only gripe so far is how you get drip-fed essential class features and even core gameplay mechanics over the course not of a tutorial but rather 20 levels. My ranger charmed a new pet ......

    I played through the whole thing without save game issues. I obviously can't confirm the non-presence of a bug, but it's something.

    Two wrongs don't make a right. I think the market would survive honest hard-drive size reports.
