Give it another go. There are a few guides out there on what settings were killing framerates. Turning down a few things (I think it was a specific type of AA and blur effects) you won't even notice has been getting people from 12 FPS back up in to the 60s on "recommended" spec rigs.

Haven't touched the game since the months following launch. The abysmal performance killed it for me, and weak post-support. I wonder how it runs now, but I'm debating if the gigs are worth downloading to find out.Reply

Valve is probably one of the most ignorant companies around. After so many wallets clambering for literally ANY kind of new Half Life game,
they would be retarded to not finish this story. Lets not look too much like EA now Valve. I know their reputation for unfinished games is widely frowned upon but you really shouldn't follow that example. Finish the series, or just cancel it to boot. Also, Dota 2 is a horrible excuse why there is not a new installment for any of their awesome titles. It's not original, and a lazy way to get richer.

He made a comment referencing they like to launch new titles along side new technology to showcase it. I'm not sure how true that is considering we got nothing Half-Life related with Source 2, and there's nothing in the works Half-Life related with the VIVE.


The man is a genius wordsmith, capable of dancing around any question. He even joked about it, comparing it to threading a needle in that AMA, which was kinda' funny to be fair.

Palmer Luckey's qualifications attacked in Oculus/ZeniMax trialPalmer Luckey's qualifications attacked in Oculus/ZeniMax trial
QDP2 Avatar
So Zuckerberg refuses to deny the possibility that Oculus stole ZeniMax's info, and instead plays the innocent role, saying he didn't know about Luckey's NDA's or Carmack's alleged code theft.. Sounds like he's trying to jump ship from this one now..
It'll be interesting what turns up during Luckey and (in particular) Carmack's testifies.

Looks like they're already in a weak position. Dis gon b good.


It's too bad we didn't have coverage of this case on par with the OJ trial in the US. I'd love to watch this thing play out.

Aaahahaha. What a joke. Honestly. Good God man.

You know, I guess we shouldn't have been surprised. I didn't have my hopes up, but it did garner my interest. It serves two things; a pathetic bandaid for their DVR feature as you pointed out, and also as an incentive for people to think about using it.

This doesn't serve gamers at all. Only Microsoft.

Whew, the caliber of vitriol on those forums is nuclear. Can't say I blame them though. There's absolutely some kind of agenda going on with Nostalrius that they aren't making public.Reply

I'll never understand the decisions some companies make in development.

Like the article mentions, the main premise of the game is intricate melee combat in a competitive multiplayer environment. Why would you NOT ensure that you take out all the stops for that to be as successful as it can be? If this were an indie title or something coming from a smaller studio, I could understand the decision. This is just lazy and reeks of cost-cutting.

The launch, and following months of this game will echo what occurred with The Division. Mark my words.Reply

AAA games are designed by a board of directors with a budget, not people who want to play video games.

So he's losing subscribers, which is bound to happen naturally, and he blames YouTube for it? Then threatens to delete his channel? My niece does something similar when she doesn't get something she wants. She's 12.Reply

He isn't losing subscribers. He's losing 30% views which normally come from the suggested videos after you've already watched one of his videos.


Example: I watch Garbagegame Part 1, it would normally recommend Garbagegame Part 2, then 3, etc. Something appears to have happened with the algorithm which decides what is suggested and has been suggesting random crap (stuff even WORSE than pewdiepie's content, for those that hate his work), OR much older/unrelated videos which people would be less likely to find entertaining.


I personally don't love his content, nor do I really hate it. But I do notice how suggestions are becoming more and more random or turning me towards really bad content (such as pornish/click-baity stuff) which I have never watched before (who uses youtube for porn?); nor have an interest in watching.
