I don't play my Rift every day though, but I'm still happy with it. I'm looking forward to some of the VR games announced at E3.Reply
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

I'm still a belieVR, just about. Though everyone agrees that the market right now isn't viable, we're certain of at least one more 'wave' of developments, maybe more. And no-one can be certain that the next wave isn't the one where VR attains critical mass.

The new Steam Chat beta looks an awful lot like Discord - you can test it nowThe new Steam Chat beta looks an awful lot like Discord - you can test it now

As one of the only people I know who isn't a fan of Discord, I hope that if you don't use group chats the current friends/chat system stays about the same in terms of interface.Reply

Also not a Discord fan, mainly because of its woeful lack of security/encryption!

Are you not going to mention that the trailer specifically says "Only on PlayStation"?Reply
WhiteCrow Avatar

Yep, given that, I don't even really want to watch the trailer.

Hitman 2's Sniper Assassin mode adds online co-op, and it’s out right nowHitman 2's Sniper Assassin mode adds online co-op, and it’s out right now

It's unfortunate that this is only available as a pre-purchase. I really enjoyed Hitman Sniper Challenge that you got from pre-purchasing Hitman Absolution.

I'm assuming this is basically the same but improved upon, and with added co-op.

I am very interested in this, but it seems it's only available from pre-purchases. While I've played every Hitman game at release, it's simply not my "thing" anymore. I'd much prefer to pay for this "mode", as I'm unlikely to purchase the full game.

Who knows, perhaps they'll make this available as a mobile game that I'll never buy because of the crap they pulled with in-game purchases.

sigh

This sounds pretty similar to Hitman GO

Samsung is beating Intel processors to 7nm and to EUV production, and maybe to 3nm tooSamsung is beating Intel processors to 7nm and to EUV production, and maybe to 3nm too
Anakhoresis Avatar
On the other hand though, isn't there the claim that the names aren't even standardised, and what others are calling 7nm is actually closer to Intel's 10nm that they're struggling with, or something like that?Reply
Dave James Avatar

Yeah, there is definitely a lot of marketing that goes into the naming of process nodes - a lot of the so-called 14nm nodes are really just re-named 16nm ones for the express purpose of marketing benefits, for example - so one company's 7nm lithography could have the same density as another's 10nm.


But it's also worth pointing out that it was Intel that helped grease the slippery slope with their 22nm node which actually had a drawn gate length of some 27nm.

Couldn't they have at least started with the trailer instead of a 'reflection' trailer? I'll find it on Youtube after it's over, it's just all marketing and concept art right now. And as pretty as it is, concept art of WW2 doesn't really tell me about the game.

Meeeeee! Hop rocks are only in certain areas and can't really be used as a surprise. Jet packs would be far more dynamic.

Well if hop-rocks are in certain areas, I think they should also put jet-packs in certain areas too like a military base or Dusty Divot.

I mean, even besides Fortnite, let's not forget the stupidly large list of popular games that are using UE4 that Epic is reaping royalties and licensing fees from. Epic is making some serious bank right now.

Splinter Cell was the first thing that popped into my head. Hoping I am right, not really interested in another Watch Dogs game yet....

A Prince Of Persia game would be even better though.
Anakhoresis Avatar

Ooo, Prince of Persia for sure! That would be awesome. I really enjoyed the 2008 version, maybe a continuation of that.

Black Ops 4’s battle royale map draws from past Call of Duty locationsBlack Ops 4’s battle royale map draws from past Call of Duty locations

Can't say I'm excited. I feel like vehicle handling in these games has generally been terrible, (I haven't played some of the newer ones though), and besides that the quick kill nature of CoD doesn't seem like it would lend itself to Battle Royale.
