The Witcher 2 gets a “linux_public_beta”

http://steamcommunity.com/app/20920/discussions/0/45350790916720011/

  • EDIT: Honest Trolling comments will be deleted!

  • They’ve gone into plaid

  • Yes, this is a “beta” for a game that was released as “gold” two months ago.

  • I thought they said something about open betas not being “common”…

  • ioKM_2wf4TTPdXQTplF7XqZfPssURILCwn951S004jvuK2XsietpI1V8vsl5Svdz_oZiEryuJZzsmoR0g75oFXsWAg0Xy49kJ402IIgIEhlV17czS6z2XA_qC9unqeos5w

  • Why even bother calling it a “Open Beta” when it was clearly a wrapped? You fucked up hard.

    • It’s an open beta of their eON tech. Don’t be stupid on purpose.

      • Damnit! He’s eON to me.

  • I like how they’re telling people to disable prelink as opposed to fixing the actual issue.    What if I WANT to use the damn thing

    • At least the fucking thing works now

    • Runs like ass still

  • I’m not spending $24.99 for early access beta test our shite

    • Thems some Overgrowth prices

  • I don’t mind FK you price because that’s what the backers payed.

  • I do mind paying retail

  • Magic: The Gathering meets Nethack meets Diablo” – Sydney Morning Herald

    • So you mean MTG meets Nethack

    • Upon playing the game:

      • This is knights of pen and paper with a hack and slash bent.   The game isn’t all that bad.   The combat isn’t all that dynamic, but its a decent foundation to what could be a fun game

  • Makes me want pizza

  • My only beef is that if you set out a release date, Stop setting the Fking release as a Early Access Game.

  • “It’s the closest thing to a proper Sonic game I’ve played since 1994.”  – Warp door

  • All I could think of while watching the trailer was:

  • Oh it’s 9000% Sonic inspired. Even the music.

  • Unoptimized Unity game is unoptimized.

  • Surprise, surprise can’t rebind the controls. Hurray.


News:

Epic Games throws wet stinkies at Blender

http://www.cgchannel.com/2014/07/epic-games-funds-blender-development/

  • Good stuff.   Seems like blender is refocusing on game content creation as opposed to their BGE crapola

  • Indeed. I hated seeing resources wasted on that fuster cluck.

  • What be this moon format “FBX”

  • It’s mainly used for interchanging character animations between supported applications like Cinema4D, Maya, UE3/4

 

340.24 driver is out

http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/76884/en-us

  • It’s kinda metal that they’re fixing WINE issues.

    • Someone in the reddit thread pointed out that because wine uses funky OpenGL voodoo, it can expose bugs in their implementation that wouldn’t otherwise be detected

  • Everything else is just baked from the last beta release.

 

GG AMD

http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1407.1/02923.html

  • Really only affects 8000 series APUs and newer

  • Essentially facilitates sharing of memory between graphics and CPU hardware.   Could potentially be leveraged for better gaming performance as it removes a lot of repeated trivial operations

  • I’ll gamble on it.

  • Protip: I don’t gamble.

https://twitter.com/TheIneQuation/status/487612207149359104

  • Well fuck me where i shit, This better not be as shitty as DeadFall. PLEASE DON’T BE!!

  • But THQ said before they went under was that they were working on bringing games to linux.

  • For those of you who never played it, its a beat-em up in the style of God of War where you play a horseman of the apocalypse

    • Which one? Larry, Curly, Moe or Shemp?

      • Joe you heathen!

  • These are the folks that brought you “Book of Unwritten Tales”

  • They also own the rights to destroy all humans.   A man can dream, can’t he?

 

Cars

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/project-cars-signs-worldwide-distribution-deal-wit/1100-6420932/

  • This worried me at first, but it’s still slated for SteamOS

    • I’m more interested how SMS will optimize gameplay for SteamOS with their Madness engine.  The company claims that they have always optimized the engine for whatever platform add.

    • Long as they don’t go full-metal Skull Girls.

  • “LD_LIBRARY_PATH+=. ./overload” is your friend

  • Also when building on fedora, edit Tools/CMake/CMakeFiles/main.dir/link.txt and remove the “:lib” prefixing -llibvorbis -llibtheora -llibogg

    • …my god.  So many undefined references.  I…I just can’t give any more shits

Shiny / Sounds

V-

  • I’m a sucker for hand drawn characters / environments

  • Gah the voice work. Devels, spend a few wet stinky on that business.

J-

  • Hand drawn is alright, but its fairly par for the course

  • Looks and sounds like something I might have played on newgrounds back in the day, so no points for that

S-

  • OH GOD THE VOICES!

Total-


Control

V-

  • From now on (for me at least) any game that recommends a controller and does not include rebindable controls loses two chairs automatically.

  • Yeah, you had four chair controls but only for the Xclone.

J-

  • This is one of those games that requires some pixel perfect accuracy

  • The controls do not facilitate this\

  • The fucking ladders

S-

  • I just fucking noticed that now….


Total-


FUN

V-

  • I can already hear it “but Vinnnn you liked Rocket Birds and it’s kinda the same thing”

  • Granted this game is quirky like Rocket Birds but it lacks a little something. A FK mothering story that I’m interested it.

  • You take away what little (also boring) story there is and you end up /w Trine on a budget.

  • If this game has one original gaming mechanic is must be an Easter egg because I can’t FKN find it.

J-

  • The trine mechanic is alright.   Not really a lot of variety between the different zombies, which was what gave trine it’s charm

  • THOSE FUCKING LADDERS

  • The game is an exercise in frustration, because when you’re off by a pixel you have to restart the whole damn level, and again the controls really don’t offer that kind of precision

S-

  • The fun value is ok but the voice overs really kill the gameplay with horrible acting.


Total-


Final –

  • This game is not fun or interesting.
