  1. They are going to sell FF VII in multiple games, similar to FF XIII. They must have modelled new areas to explore, areas that were previously unseen in pre rendered backgrounds. They can even have added new side quests or modified the plot in some ways to acommodate a larger world. In the original game you visit one reactor in Midgar and just one section of the whole thing, what if the whole structure is now accessible to the player? Realtime combat imposes a new challenge. What the other chars in your party do while you are controlling one char? The AI controls them. In turn based system
  2. Played path of exile till lvl 70 and then quit. The thing is, poe offers a very large skill tree with hundreds of different paths to go and a lot of crafting. But the game lacks accessibility. They really think that all players are going to spend hours learning all the mechanics and the specific details of each league. Even after years of improving their engine they still suffer from performance issues and crashes. And the game is just too much RNG, everything is random.
  3. Watched the season 14 finale of Supernatural. As it turns out, they found what is the biggest treat of all: God himself. This somewhat isn't surprising because the whole show makes angels, demons, monsters, every supernatural being is evil in a way or another. Even God is against the heroes. Many times the angels themslves talked about God being abscent and never fixing up things. It was really stupid to make God show up and just give them a new gun that has a stupid drawback, you kill but the gun kills you at the same time. Really uncreative. The ending is very meta when God sa
  4. So, HBM2 is still not feasible for mass production products. HBM2 offers massive bandwidth, but the costs associated with it are a no for consoles. Sounds like that this time around they're putting in more DDR RAM for the OS, leaving more GDDR useable for games. 3D audio seems to be a more capable audio processor, leaving the CPU with more cycles to do other stuff. The price bump from HDD to SSD is quite comparable to putting more RAM, so they are probably trading some RAM for faster loading times with SSD. I really doubt it'll come with more than 16GB GDDR or an SSD larger than 512GB. Mo
  5. I can't judge a game by looking at cutscenes.
  6. Google really belives that internet = electricity. But unless the input lag is around 50ms, games will be forced to run slower to offset latencies over 100ms.
  7. I think that I didn't do well enough in the calculus 2 exam to pass............................ mathematics is like that. You may understand the theory behind, but the exercise may contain a little detail that tricks you or requires a little step that you are not aware of.

    Goals for 2019?

    My first goal for 2019 is to pass a calculus 2 exam that is really close, 2 weeks. From there, I hope I can finish the vectors and geometry wiki and begin more wikis.
  9. That's a huge leap in less than two decades. With Max Payne 1 they had to bake lighting, spend many hours rendering static lights. Now they can do better and millions of times faster.
  10. Their tech is pretty much on par with the best cryengine showcase out there. The bad thing is that they don't post any updates. They remain silent.
  11. A few months ago I was expelled because of poor academic performance. But I got one chance to go back without having to sit for the entrance exam once again. In here the entrance exam is the sole criteria, they don't care about anything else but your score in that exam. The other way to enter is to first complete a degree, then there is a special entrance exam for ppl who already have a degree.
  12. For a few days in this week I played Candy Crush way too much, wasted many hours on this ****. That game is really meant to make ppl waste a lot of time. I'm currently avoiding all games at all costs because I want to focus on study and grades.
  13. With raytracing you can finally see if somebody is comming from behind. But, real 3D smoke puffs are still too expensive to compute?
  14. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/dcunited/pavards-goal-against-argentina-voted-best-of-world-cup/2018/07/25/3e05db4e-901d-11e8-ae59-01880eac5f1d_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.83dd18a84dc5 Not surprised. It was the best goal.
  15. "Mentes Perigosas" (translated as "Dangerous Minds"). It's about how to identify psychopaths. Now I want to read "Almost a psychopath". The reason for reading those is that I found myself in a forum where the admin does certain things that are similar to what a psychopath would do. No, he is very very far from being one, but there was a day that somebody joked about psychopaths and he admitted that he was, in fact, compared to one in life.
  16. If England wins, imagine the world watching England x France. Once again, history repeats itself.
  17. Brazil clearly lost because the players that were doing well in the previous matches were... uh... not feeling very well. Just check the number of misplaced passes of Brazil. English press criticezed Neymar, but english players were diving in the match against Colombia.
  18. I'd say that that frech goal was more memorable than
  19. It's almost like Sweden slapping Germany's face.
  20. Germany 2 x 1 Sweden. That last minute goal was a miracle!
  21. That wasn't the VAR's fault. The idiot brazilian player opened his arms in a way that "backfired" the referee's reaction.
  22. This is the first time they are taking advantage of VIDEOs.
  23. Doom eternal, I was expecting the name "Doom 2". Anthem is already photoreal, there isn't much room to get even better than that.
