  1. I'm going as well. Could be fun to meet up.
  2. That German glittery one looks dope as hell.
  3. For another Half-Life game to happen, it requires that developers at Valve actually wants to make it. These guys have a very open structure where the developers are free to decide what they want to work on. It is a safe bet that no new Half-Life game will happen as a result of a top-down decision within Valve. .
  4. Damn it... Now I have to buy yet another game.
  5. That's really nice collections! Haven't bought a C&C game in who knows how many years. Wishing that 2017 will surprise and give a reason to expand it.
  6. OpenRA

    I respect the idea and effort, but I think the result looks messy. Too many components, competing focal points and unnecessary details. I also think it is contradicting with their own design requirement: "Not tied to a specific game or universe (so no mammoth tanks, tiberium, or faction logos).". Cartoony mammoth tank was literally the first thing that went through my mind as I saw it. Just my two cents.
  7. @PurpleGaga27 As long as it is not simply a hate train I don't see what the problem is to discuss why C&C4 was negatively received by many. To me it was the fact that I didn't find it worthy. It did not improve upon the things that I found to be good qualities in the earlier titles. Frankly, it threw most of those things straight out of the window. I found that the game took a lot of unnecessary risks trying to fix a problem that didn't need fixing by replacing mechanics that were closely attached to the series with entirely new ones. Sure, the format in C&C4 might have been fun as a separate game mode, but it was ultimately disappointing I feel that this was all that the game had to offer, and that some of the most critical signature concepts of Command & Conquer were just gone.
  8. As far as I am concerned, much of the negativity surrounding C&C4 has gotten old and it is time to bring back C&C. I want a proper no-nonsense RTS with classic base building, harvesting and unit spam, taking place somewhere between the Tiberian Dawn and Tiberian Sun storylines. EA should stop doubting themselves and stay open to the potential in what could be a fantastic comeback in the RTS scene.
  9. @Troopzor Yes, the Vive can recognize movement. The current version comes with cameras that are to be set up in the room. These track movement of the face device and the two controllers. It could be set up for you to walk around a map, but I wouldn't recommend using such a setup despite how awesome it sounds (for the current Vive at least). The main problem in my experience is that you need a very large playing space, which can cause tracking issues. It is probably a minority of users who have setups in huge rooms, which is probably part of the reason why most games for it aren't designed for actual walking as a way to navigate. What I've seen mostly on the Vive is control setups where if you have to move around, you either have a very small space to move in (couple of steps in all degrees), or a setup where you move around using the pads on the controllers (which in my opinion works just fine). A different kind of setup is where you "drag" yourself around using the controllers to "pull in the air". I don't think it is that common yet but it feels pretty cool and convenient if done properly. HTC is launching a new wireless Vive headset Q1 2017 I believe. It does the tracking in the goggle device itself giving a lot more liberty to the user. No external camera setups and no wires connected to the device while playing.
  10. We discussed this a bit at the office yesterday. I started working at a VR game company so this is both relevant and very interesting. Really want to play around with it if the opportunity presents itself.
  11. I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
  12. My Windows 10 suddenly out of nowhere decided to forget its key and demands that re-enter it to activate my Windows copy. Only problem is that I don't have it anymore. I bought Win7 years ago with the PC and have upgraded for free since then. So I am forced to purchase a new key or be stuck with the horrible "Activate Windows" overlay on the screen.
  13. I want to try a fun little experiment. Describe one of your favorite games as a type of: food or drink smell weather It doesn't have to be your number one favorite. You can post more than one game if you like. I'll start with two: Diablo II Black coffee. Moldy. Clouded and raining. Zelda: Ocarina of Time A cold glass of milk. Wood. Clear and windy.
