  Doesn't look that much different from it's predecessors. I doubt it will be disappointing but I don't want to play the same game again with some changes.

The reason I can't see its demographic is because it ended up, in the long run, being far more expensive than just buying a console or gaming PC. Not to mention it required relatively high end internet speeds. So its niche wasn't for those looking to save money, nor was it for those who weren't capable of finding a decent console/PC in their part of the world (because anywhere in the world with that speed of internet surely has those amenities too), so it literally had no market.

It would probably have a market further down the road if and when US internet speeds aren't fucking stupid and there isn't download caps. As it was then and now it would cost way too much to get internet fast enough and with a high enough download cap to make it worth game streaming.

Already alot of people are running into problems of video streaming, it eats through their monthly allotments fucking fast and will be glitchy as hell if your speeds are shite.

Streaming games would be those problems but even worse.

In the future streaming games might get popular again but again that needs some changes to US internet. Streaming could be really popular with tablets and other lower power devices that normally couldn't handle a full power game. Imagine having some iPad 7 or Android whatever with an Xbox controller plugged in and playing the latest PC releases on it.

Thats where it would shine, expanding into a niche that isn't already filled by consoles and PCs and normal handheld and mobile games.

As long as it exists...

The demographic is anyone without a gaming capable platform (or anyone with a Mac) who wants to play current games ASAP.

Cloud gaming is viable for most the US according to this pic. The problem was marketing and a mediocre management team.

Except people who can afford both fast internet to stream those games, and who can afford the cost charged by OnLive for a subscription, and for rentals and "full" purchases (which is more of an unlimited rental than an actual purchase), can by extension usually afford a decent gaming PC or at least a console. As it stands, you're paying almost as much or more in the long-haul, for a flatly inferior experience because of issues like input lag.

They already sell consoles well below material cost just on the assumption that the person will make them money through the purchase of future games, peripherals, and subscriptions. Furthermore, anyone that can afford a god damn Mac of all things, can probably afford a console, and if they can't... why are they paying for super-fast internet, an OnLive subscription, and a Mac? The only argument I can see in the case of OnLive is like Doomguy said: streaming to your tablet or other mobile device. But even then, a company would need to muscle out other services like Nvidia Gamestream and PS Vita remote play.

Which is really a far smarter system anyway. I'd personally much rather stream a game I actually own elsewhere, through a service like Nvidia Gamestream, than I would "buy" games from a straight 100% cloud service like OnLive only for them to disappear the second the company goes under.

I was actually pretty annoyed to find out the windows in the insurgent arent bullet proof.

However its really easy for me to run "Flood the LS river" mission for cash when my friends arent on to do heists.
>> No. 54965 ID: 8820ba
The armored Kuruma is actually better protected from gunfire, strangely enough. It's difficult even for players to kill you unless you're not moving.

There's been a few missions, like the Heist preparation mission when you have to steal the plane for the prison break where I never got out of the car and simply ran down and drive-byed the enemies without even taking a hit myself.

That said, while it might be armored, the Kuruma is still gonna die from a single RPG shot.
>> No. 54988 ID: 84c4e8
Yeah armored karuma makes life easier. I might get one in a bit. I just spent all my dosh on a tooled out Z type and a tooled out zentorno. Back to heisting and farming in case this casino DLC that is coming out does in fact have mansion properties you can buy (as the rumor suggests)

Also races for pink slips pretty much confirmed.

Double post for posterity!

My friands and I are thinking of putting a "cheap car challenge" play list together. Specifics are undecided but its either gonna be compacts, sedans or similar car type. We are gonna have a set amount we can spend (example: Pay no more than $40,000 for your car via website, leftover change goes into modifying it (not including body kits or paint).

The playlist I think is gonna be:
3 primarily offroad races
3 primarily on road races
3 rally cross (offroad and onroad) races
And maybe a drag race or other fun race.

Any pc bros interested in joining us?

If it's in your team library right click it, properties, language, switch to English.

I went into my game and couldn't find a way to do it that way but if you bought it through steam that's the only way I have found to change the language.

Initial impression is good. There's the predictable team killing by new people, although i'd probably classify myself as such as I haven't played in 5+ years.

Played it consistently throughout today, lot's of new players who are willing to learn and it was actually nearly more enjoyable than any time I played PR before, people haven't really seemed to understand the game modes and stuff like that yet, but I'm sure they'll learn, in the mean time, it's fun as hell.

- Seemingly high defect rate

>4k takes a lot of graphics card to drive. From what I've heard, you're talking multi video card rigs.

Indeed it does.

My current monitor....

I can do the 4k but the FPS is poop, SLI'd 970TIs. I can do 2560x1440 at 90+ FPS in everything though.

The only current viable option would be to go to triple 980s or dual titans. Dual 980TIs might be viable as well but do no look to be that promising.

Aaaaand yeah not dropping 2k+ on video cards right now.
>> No. 54897 ID: 0dcdc8
But back to your original question.

Would it be ok to drop 799 on a 27'' 144Hz screen for 800 dollars?

For me, hell no. Wall mount the 50" that does more resolution and more size and do it at 60hz on HDCP 2.2.

I made the leap on the monitor side, but anticipate a 2-3 year wait for the graphics cards to catch up.

Not saying I did a lot of research here... but yeah.


My input lag is sub 20ms, better than almost everything else.

I would argue that Vizio is not only the best bang for the buck, it is also neck and neck on quality and ability with displays twice the price.

Small correction. This thing can allegedly push the 4k at 120Hz. Again waiting for prices to drop on the cards.

The take away is that TVs as monitors for gaming are now viable at 4k. Graphics cards at a reasonable price point are not.

>> No. 54899 ID: 0c08f2

Well yeah. I wouldn't game on it in native 4k unless I had the hardware to match, just saying it'd be fucking awesome if I did.

Bigger draw is having an ultra wide that can give the FOV advantage without needing to fuck with triple monitors, so the borders breaking up my gameplay wouldn't be an issue.

As far as curves go, it'd need to be curved to get a decent peripheral view of things with that much width if you're talking about a desktop PC gaming experience, triple monitor setups usually mimic a curve effect. For typical use, curves just maintain the aspect ratio better for the human eye, it is mostly good for TV viewing when the viewer is sitting across a living room, the further away you view, the better a curve does at its job.

But who knows, maybe Oculus or Hololens will do a better job for gaming with a wide FOV.

>That's like saying a Jetta is a better car than a Veyron, because it can go farther at top speed.

If only transfer rates were the only meaningful measurement in a display interface...

>You completely missed the point of the monitor.

No, I understand it completely. What you want is a high end niche gaming monitor. You asked if this was worth buying. I told you no, and cited your own misgivings as reason why I would not consider it. I can see how such a high refresh rate, for instance, would be nice for gaming. Higher resolution, as well, obviously. But you're asking about this specific monitor. Not those features.

If you don't like the answer, tough shit - you asked. Buy the monitor or don't. It's not skin off my ass whichever route you take. You're also, shockingly, not bound to heed my advice and ignore it entirely.

On Bethesda website a countdown timer has appeared with a countdown of less then 24 hours. Pete Hines Twatter also has something about standing by.

Could this be a Fallout 4 announcement? Fallout Online? A massive troll to piss all over the hopes and dreams of fans?

Id be ok with a fallout MMO there is a lot of shit you could do with it character creation wise and player driven drama. Imagine if you had the various factions run by players. So you had a small amount of brotherhood of steel/enclave folk (maybe you have to finish a questline to make a character in those factions) trying to expand their sphere of influence only to run into hordes of gangers/whatever.

Fallen Earth had an interesting play on factions with the faction wheel. If that game had a little bit better combat it would have been really good.

Squad just launched its kickstarter

If you don't already know, Squad is the spiritual successor to the Project Reality mod for BF2, with many of the original developers of PR:BF2 now contributing to Squad. Right now they have a pre-alpha build of the game that shows off some basic infantry combat, with the promise of vehicles and large scale warfare to come.

They let a handful of semi-popular FPS youtubers preview the game and record videos.
Here's a few:

I still say atleast parts of the gameplay were some of the crappiest parts of the game. Especially the shooting. Goddamn did the shooting suck. I know they were trying to force players to go with stealth with like the batons and shit but still, it was kinda shitty.

Also the looting sucked. You never had any ammo. Any ammo you had was wasted with the shitty spray in the general direction of the enemy firing mechanic unless you waiting like 10 seconds on target for the crosshairs to zoom in, all the while getting shot if you weren't being a stealthy fuck. When you actually killed the cunt he had jack and shit.

I know this was for balance reasons as they didn't want a player in the first few levels to be getting piles of magazines off of corpses as one might expect, especially if they never got off a shot, but still it was pretty dumb for guys participating in sieges and hostages situations to have like one or two bullets especially the dudes who never got off a shot and the dudes who just poured like a hundred rounds at your ass.

I love Deus Ex but like Fallout there are some shit about it I really hate too.

That's the opposite of what most people in the universe say, first time reading this view actually.

I think the first DX suffered from being clunky as fuck with terrible animations and subpar graphics like a game that wasn't even completed, yet the scale of it and the storyline, dialogue and huge amount of options and freedoms you had as a player easily made up for it. That's why it's a classic. Just my 2cents

I loved HR because it was in a time of transition with augments just coming out and all the socio-political repercussions of it. I really really really get nervous with the new trailer seeming to show a more black and white, 'humons vs robo-people' concept that is far less interesting to me.
