They're being very pragmatic about what they can achieve with the resources at hand, and not over-promising/over-extending themselves. I think it's a good strategy. If they can provide a solid little…

Yeah, and I'm not saying they should have taken a turn-based approach for Cyberpunk - just that for me, the mix of gunplay and hitpoints is less jarring in that context, so it's less problematic for…

I actually prefer it when RPGs in a modern or future setting use a tactical turn-based style. In that context, it doesn't bother me. There's just something about action shooting to whittle down…

I think, like pibbur mentioned, we need to treat the effectiveness numbers with a certain amount of skepticism, and see how things shake out in the real world. But I don't find the arrival of several…

Yeah, I think there are other possible ways to handle it, but when mixing a traditional RPG system of hitpoints with shooter gameplay, bullet sponges are going to be the result. But unfortunately for…

Yes, this is good - the response is starting to come together. It remains to be seen how many decide not to be vaccinated, or participate in self-testing and quarantine. In some places, I fear the…

I read their written piece on their preview session. It all sounded pretty great, except for the combat, which they said was very bullet-spongy. Bit of a shame, but I can probably deal with it if the…

Yeah, I'd like a lot more information about the project. Personally, I'm not going to spend time filling out random anonymous surveys.

The research suggests that the benefit of near instant results would heavily outweigh the lack of accuracy in the earliest phase of the infection.

I suspect not. I think moving to DX12 would have put an end to that. The chipmakers aren't interested anymore, and very few games seem to bother implementing DX12 multiGPU. None of them have much…

Yes, I'm just using shorthand to refer to them, because we know what the article's about. I'm not sure if you're agreeing or disagreeing with me?

I wonder if another possibility is that many of these studios are not in great financial shape, and THQ has just snapped up some bargains.

Study suggests mass rapid testing as an alternative to widespread restrictions could be an effective strategy.

Yeah, it's not a good idea to let me know you're planning in-game DLC. I can be patient, and that will tend to make me wait until all the DLC is out, which probably also means picking up the main…

Right - I wasn't thinking about 4K necessarily. I believe DLSS can also be used at 1440p, so it would be rendering at a lower resolution, and upscaling to a 1440 target resolution, which might give…

I wouldn't worry about your English. You have a strong accent, but the English is absolutely clear, and mostly perfect. There are some ESL speakers that I do struggle with, because they don't just…

It's hard probably even for them to predict. It depends which files it touches, and how they were packed. A huge patch both in terms of fixes and in terms of GBs wouldn't surprise me for any AAA game…

A big day one patch is a standard part of a game's release. Every game goes gold a while before release day, with known bugs, then they scramble to sort out as much as possible for day one.

I might be getting a dose next month, on account of being a member of The Illuminati. If that occurs, I shall report any interesting side effects.
