    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    some were pretty heavy on character development, so much so I didn't realize they were optional at the time. There are more obvious side-quests and mini games which I didn't care for but were at least more meaningful and varied than the littering of mindless fetch quests we see in more modern RPGs

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    cool to see someone like Joe who never played the original found it interesting/fun... this is the first time I'm seeing actual gameplay too, and it looks great

    The Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo is Brilliant

    Are they? The part in Midgar was crazy linear (and people complain about FF13) I expect a lot of side quests as filler. Hope I'm wrong, or it's fun filler, it was a cool setting...

    The Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo is Brilliant

    I agree FFVII felt like a downgrade in many ways. Great music and backgrounds though. FFIV and Suikoden I & II had more characters in battle. I loved the extra bit of strategy that offered

    The Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo is Brilliant

    wait, it's $60 for 25% of the game, $240 for the entire thing? What did the do, extend the length of the already overly-long-winded original?

    Half Life: Alyx

    I just skimmed through it quickly (don't wanna spoil it for myself too much) but looks really good. I bet they chose teleport for this demo because it's the most comfortable and thus will be what most newcomers to VR use as it will be the default setting. Had they used locomotion it might lead...

    DOOOM - "We're not prepared for the end of Moore's Law"

    It's more than an observation, it's something to aspire to, no matter the initial intention of the phrase. But I do think almost everyone here understands this, so nothing to really get worked up about (not saying you are, but sometimes these convos get heated in mixed company)

    GOG extends its game refund window to 30 days

    can't they just not sell it on GOG, I don't get the "sky is falling" response to this... obviously they can detect folks spamming the refund button after purchasing a game, and nothing's stopping those kinda folks from just torrenting... some devs just don't want folks to play the game long...

    GOG extends its game refund window to 30 days

    I've played games offline with the launcher and it doesn't seem to track play time... so yea, not a great way to track things, no doubt, just saying it's possible they'll see folks trying to refund Witcher 3 and notice they put 120hrs into it

    GOG extends its game refund window to 30 days

    same here, I take my damn time with games nowadays... 30 days is good to get a preview of things, play a few levels maybe, but not enough time to beat the game and then try and refund it. They'll probably be tracking progress online anyways (or play time) to weed out those trying to do this, as...

    Half Life: Alyx

    some of us long predicted "HL3" would be VR only... so many signs Valve was going this direction. If they do a PC version they'd have to severaly gimp the controls in some way I think similar to QTEs, or redesign the game pretty significantly for more traditional keyboard/mouse... perhaps...

    Neil Young has issues with the MacBook Pro and he's eager to tell you about it.

    blame the loudness wars for the majority of crap digital music these days, no amount of great sounding DAC or expirements in 1bit/2.8224MHz (DSD) tech is gonna save from brick-walling sound waves into oblivion just to satisfy some A&R rep or scummy clueless producer-wannabe

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood

    is there any way to disable the voices and cut scenes on this game... it all looks okay until that starts to kick in, I don't see mods for the game, but maybe it's salvageable or is the gameplay also a turd salad?

    A simple curmudgeon if I ever heard one.... dude, just go record on analog tape and stop whining about obvious things like "MacBook needs an external DAC for best quality" ffs... oh, that's right, you have nothing important to say, like a true artist that has lost touch and is now bitter about...

    Video Editing Software

    If you're using OBS this is a popular gamepad viewer: https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/gamepad-display.3/ I can think of a few other ways to do it, using something like Blender for example, but it'd be way more complex and the above looks to be pretty simple to set up.

    id Tech 7 Engine Upgrades Discussed by DOOM Eternal Dev; Raytracing to Be Explored Post-Launch

    only in a few places, another obvious one is later on entering a space-themed corridor, the texture right in front of your face on both sides is mirrored, showing the identical smears/dents up close... not a big deal, and I agree dev time and performance should win out over john carmack's...

    didn't realize they were using megatextures in doom 2016, but now that they've removed it just 28 seconds into this video I see obvious repeated textures, not even rotated or mirrored to try and hide it: really curious what devs thought of it, or maybe higher-ups were just annoyed of the...

    Half-Life Collection free to play until the launch of Half-Life: Alyx

    Yea, but only when I attempted a 2nd play through of HL2 on a newer system on an LCD panel... I figured it was the input lag or something. Didn't have any issues on older systems on CRT. Unreal and ID games on both old CRT and new LCDs never made me nauseous, so I do suspect something was up...
