With the Trident (and any gaming PC) it's a high initial outlay, but with the benefit that years down the line you'll still be able to drop in a new, speedier GPU, maybe a touch more RAM, and still be gaming at a pretty high level for a minimal upgrade cost.
In three to five years your Xbox One X will be looking increasingly obsolete, and you'll be expected to pay out £600 for a whole new system.
Planetside 2 was what I was just thinking of, I'm almost kind of surprised they haven't built their own battle royale mode as an aside to showcase how many players Planetside 2 can hold.
Planetside 2 is all about the server size, but the individual shooter elements aren't strong enough to be worth investing into. There's no drop/loot system for the world exploration (so there's no risk/reward of going to busier areas).
The game works as a war of fronts; almost trench-warfare styled in the way the maps were built for barriers, bridge crossings, low hills and large areas to shoot/run over. By having that relatively quick respawn it worked. They may be able to make a 'last-man-standing' mode, but it wouldn't be satisfying to play.
It's not like he could 'keep' the citadel, if he were to have claimed it and left CO2, it would have been stolen back and Judge would have achieved nothing. By instead selling to a bidding alliance, the Keepstar is now out of CO2's reach.
To steal ISK and break friendships is hard in EVE. But to hand the stolen assets to enemy factions is by far the most brutal action you could make. For CO2 to go to war with The Imperium now, they'd have to fight against their own funds. GigX would have been forced to chose to destroy his own stolen Titan (that is if he weren't perma-banned).
This was about as demeaning as The Judge could be in leaving the faction. He could have cut ties and gone through proper forums. He wouldn't have left empty handed. It certainly wouldn't be 5 years worth of value, but it would have been good for him. Instead he chose to screw over CO2. Good on him.
High hopes for a very bland, generic and boring shooter? Why?
Blackpool's in England. I played that game way too much, gonna have to dial myself in and see this secret level!
Aye, I'm in the USA, forgot to mention that (I swear I meant to, I don't automatically assume everyone is in the USA/knows I'm in the USA!). No idea if my service will even give me a notice of whether it counts as international or not. Post back on what the call says!
It's not the US who decided to start Brexit, we have ourselves to blame here. If we swapped positions, we'd probably be doing the same thing to you :P
VR is affordable for the enthusiasts, but not all friend-groups have the power. Many will own older/weaker hardware, some will see VR as too much still. It's still too much to persuade 3 other people VR is worth the investment, they need to come to that decision on their own before they'll be willing to invest more money than a 4K console into the headset.
Spending $10 (or £10 apparently) each to get to play the headset in the same room as your friends though, all together, you've turned VR into a social experience. It's affordable, accessible to the masses, you get to walk away laughing with your friends about what you just did together.
It's not going to spur on development for RPGs and other heavy games I hope to see on the platform in the future, but it sure would ease tension around the headsets, increase the amount of usage, boost profits for developers and all-round be good for the industry.
Currently it feels as if we're stood on the precipice, still unsure whether VR is going to take off or sink. With the slightest change in sales, profits, or public opinions; VR could still get shot out of the water and collapse as a medium. If the large developers were unable to see any potential profit from making VR games, they will all stop making VR games, which will kill off the medium. I see VR arcades as a solution to avoid this. Maybe I'm overthinking, I don't have any statistics to back up these thoughts. I can be very pessimistic at times :P
Well, I just read in another article about Fallout and Skyrim VR. If at least one of those ends up being good I'm starting to feel the pressure to buy the damn thing.
