#449382 Civ VI released for iPads!

Posted macdude22 on 02 July 2018 - 03:41 PM

Still playing this around the house. Plays exceptionally well by fingers or by stylus. I have a really nice pen/stylus that I got on amazon. Convenient for precision poking in Civ VI

#449359 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance released for Mac

Have to something when you sell all your technology assets to NVIDIA. But ya, transgaming was always smarmy. They basically stole all the good work codeweavers did on wine and provided nothing back but slick marketing.

apropos of nothing really but McDonalds are the kings of sketchy real estate deals.

Basically my thoughts on the movie as well.  Its.. a movie.  You could have changed the names and made it into any other generic sci-fi movie.  Its not horrible, its not great.  


Star Wars isn't sci-fi.


#449226 Feral's upcoming project?

Or ports of the older Final Fantasy Titles, III, VII, XI, etc.... They should run great on almost any mac.


#449208 Jeff Vogel announces new game: 'Queen's Wish: The Conqueror'

A lot of the graphics in the trailer appear to be Avernum placeholders but I wouldn't expect the engine and style to change drastically between now and release.

I have a feeling he really wants to get it on the iPhone and the less isometric view point will work better with less screen real estate.


#449197 Steam Link coming to iOS and tvOS

Maybe this mass of people that want more doodles instead of less exists but I don't see them. I talk to people. A lot. My wife says I have a social disorder where I don't know not to talk to people. I have the luxury/horror of working at an organization where I am running into people with a lot of free time on their hands that need distracted by random conversation I am happy to provide. I just don't run into people that are clambering for more things like this. Not kids, not students, not adults with families. The overwhelming majority of consumers just plops down in front of turnkey device that is a console, or increasingly a mobile phone. Most people I run into have a cheap laptop or wal-mart special desktop. A somewhat increasing number of those folks may have a MacBook or iPad in lieu of the cheap laptop or walmart special.

All the kids are clambering to manage separate accounts for
Steam
Origin
Uplay
Battle.net

instead of just a Live or PSN account


PC gaming enthusiasts are like car enthusiasts. It's a small, energetic group. You can make any number of legitimate, concrete arguments about why it's "better" to do this that and the other. But at the end of the day it's a niche, and as much as of folks in those communities would imagine it's broader, it's not. They REALLY encourage in depth learning about their respective topics, but the majority may nod their head in agreement but don't care.

I'm glad folks are doing things folks like to do. I'm glad people are making money at it. The most fascinating thing to me from a socioeconomic perspective is the number of people that come to an Apple centric forum to preach the gospel of windows gaming.

Never pirated any games but in for 75, I want that signed paper.


#449184 Steam Link coming to iOS and tvOS

Posted macdude22 on 29 May 2018 - 02:20 PM

I don't know a single adult with kids that cares about streaming games. There's a niche but it's not big. Big enough to justify some investment from Valve and Nvidia maybe, but its small potatoes. There's a select few folks here that are really passionate about streaming tech, and that's great but it's nowhere near mainstream and I don't see it becoming mainstream. Your average joe wants to plop down and play a tapper or Halo or Mario. Shield TVs and Steam Links are absolutely edge cases, I don't see those winds changing anytime soon.

I don't get what everybody's circle jerk around nvidia is. GeForce Experience sucks. Force people to sign in to get drivers? lolwut. Their proprietary popsnizzle sucks. PhysX doesn't add anything to games. Best thing apple did was toss those honkeys off the free money apple tit.

I agree. There is NOTHING like playing a good game of Starcraft or Civilization on a console platform!

Literally, nothing like it!

Civilization Revolution was the best Civ game so 100% agree.


#449050 What Mac games did you recently finish?

Posted macdude22 on 12 May 2018 - 04:06 PM

I might grab it on iPad though so I can sit on the couch and play. My daughter likes to watch "the cats" fight but my leg falls asleep when she sits on my lap in the office chair so long.
