Very nice. Can we move it though? May 26th is Mother's Day in Poland and my mom hates Twitch. She prefers Hitbox or whatever it is called right now.

I'm not saying it was a good thing. Just that it was what was needed by the law:


"Failure to "police" a mark by stopping infringing uses can result in the loss of protection."


Infringement comes down to the "likelihood of confusion test" So where we, as gamers, might easily tell the difference between games, lawyers probably do not - to them a game is a game no matter the content.

As I said earlier, what annoys me is the "woe, woe, we had to do it" atitude whilst doing nothing to affect change of that law.

You forgot last, very important part: "by the potential customer". Where customers are gamers who CAN tell the difference.

Jonathan Blow shows off Sokoban-style, box-pushing game prototypeJonathan Blow shows off Sokoban-style, box-pushing game prototype
Darkhog Avatar
Jonathan, as per usual, BLOWS. Seriously, sokoban? WTF? Braid has nice mechanic, but then that idiot just HAD to put that idiotic ending. Game would be fine and just successful without it. And I don't even talk about nuclear one either. Regular ending was stupid enough.

Then he made a walking simulator. With puzzles. What. The. Fuck. And to top it off, he priced it at $40. Lel.

And now this sokoban thing? He seriously just confirmed that he had lost his mind (if he had one in the first place, that is).

That game will be critically panned and nobody will like it. I've seen it all and it doesn't end nicely. It will be an utter flop unless they do some crazy promotional stunt which I believe they won't.

Well, that not entirely true. MMOs cant be cracked. I have a feeling most games in the future will end up being server based.


But that will be the death of games for many if that happens. Because EA is notorious for shutting down a server, and imagine trying to play one of your favorite games years from now when a servers been shut down. That will not fly with most users.

Intel panic-releasing the X299 platform because of an unannounced AMD systemIntel panic-releasing the X299 platform because of an unannounced AMD system
Darkhog Avatar

Well, it's really not that crazy considering the power. Wonder how well it will be supported by the mobo vendors, so you can save on that.

Dave James Avatar

You're right, considering the server/workstation power it's not that nuts. The time saving on rendering alone could make it worth the money. For us gamers though...


The mobo guys will love it tbough - a great excuse to put out new premium priced motherboards cos it's the high-end desktop market!


Though maybe the fact that Kaby Lake-X is just going to run dual-channel memory and not have so many cores will prompt them to make more affordable, cut-down X299 boards.

How to overclock: it's easier than you thinkHow to overclock: it's easier than you think
Darkhog Avatar

Heh, maybe. But my case doesn't have enough space for 4 ssd (both in terms of space for SATA SSDs that plug in into the drive bay and in terms of pci-e slots) and I need at least 1tb to be comfortable with all the shit I install/play.

Reply
Dave James Avatar

Yeah, in that case it's going to have to be an old spinning platter then I'm afraid, unless you start saving. 1TB SSDs are still about £300/$300 :(
