Posted by: silentsun - 31-03-2014, 05:23 PM - Forum: Video Games Discussion - Replies (1)

Victoria University Engineering Club is running a LoL tournament for those of you who are interested. I have heard that there are going to be some pretty awesome prizes up for grabs. So if you are keen here is the Facebook event. Previous events run by VEC have been very good and they are only getting better.

  What are you favourite songs from 2013?
Posted by: Selegraphon - 27-03-2014, 01:37 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (9)

Here's a playlist of my top ten favourite songs from 2013, starting with #10.

Please note that I chose to limit my choices to one song per artist for the sake of variety.

Please also note that Glare, by Sheep, Dog & Wolf, would have been in there somewhere if there was a studio version uploaded to YouTube. So I guess it's not technically my favourite 10, but it's close enough.

Let's see your picks.

EDIT: Sheep, Dog & Wolf has since released Glare as a single, so the playlist is updated.

  Facebook Acquires Oculus VR
Posted by: Pythagean - 26-03-2014, 12:51 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (7)

Today is a sad day, Facebook has bought Oculus...

https://www.facebook.com/zuck/posts/1010...ream_ref=1

This news has really killed so much of the excitement which has been building around the Oculus Rift for me. I was sure it had to be some form of sick early April Fools joke.... bu no

Facebook is known for it's intrusive tracking of users, not to mention it's extreme focus on advertisement, intrusive logins, and focus on linking to real-life data collection. The appeal of Oculus to me (as compared to Sony's Morpheus VR, for example) is because it is on a PC platform, and thus allows us freedom over what we want to do with it. This partnership will cause the Rift to become "commercialized", so to speak; for example, targeted ads overlaid over games, intrusive tracking of applications or programs that we run, brickwalling indie developers from the rift, and allowing our personal information to be sold/marketed/given to facebook?

I can't even describe how disappointed I am in Palmer Luckey and whoever else at Oculus was involved in this decision. The goals and mission statement of the company was one of the main reasons why I was so excited for the Rift, they were really focusing on taking their time to create an amazing device, so that when it did finally release to the consumer it would blow people away. Now with Facebook wanting to accelerate the development and release a device ASAP to beat Valve and Sony, I can just feel that it's going to be hit with massive backlash due to the obviously unfinished nature of the product, which will seriously hurt the VR market. Competition may have set back the dream of Virtual Reality for another 10 years.

Anyone have any other thoughts on this news?

Exclamation GOG Sales!
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 22-03-2014, 06:31 PM - Forum: Video Games Discussion - Replies (16)

We have a Steam sales thread but what about a GOG thread? Arguably, and for me personally, its a better games distribution service than Steam.


What is GOG you ask?

Quote:GOG is a computer game sale and distribution service operated by GOG Ltd. The games can be purchased and downloaded online, and they are distributed without digital rights management. The prices of products typically range from about $5 to $10 for older games, along with special offers in sales held several times a week. Some newer titles have a higher price.

The user does not have to install special client software to download or run the games, although an optional download manager is available. After downloading, the customer retains full ownership to the products: they can be archived on any personal storage media for unlimited time. They are independent of the customer's GOG.com account.

This makes GOG absolute win.


Currently on sale we have:

The first 3 Hitman games:
  • Hitman: Codename 47
  • Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
  • Hitman 3: Contracts

For 10.37 USD (12.15 NZD)
http://www.gog.com/promo/hitman_contract...omo_200314

Also they have a Weekend game sale going on:
www.gog.com/promo/team17_blue_moon_red_owl_merge_games_weekend_promo_210314


Considering picking up the Hitman games. They any good?

Post any other good GOG sales or recommendations here!

  A Dame to Kill For
Posted by: Kesh on Hend - 08-03-2014, 08:35 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

When it comes to Robert Rodriguez, it's either really bad or really good. Given that Sin City was part of the latter group it's safe to assume that the sequel/prequel will be too.

Sad to see that Dwight isn't going to be played by Clive Owen but there is a story reason for this. Instead he'll be played by Josh Brolin. Other notable cast members are Ray Liotta, Eva Green and Joseph Gordon-Levitt who will play Johnny, a character in a new segment written exclusive for this film.
Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba will reprise their roles.

The stories in this film will be "A Dame to Kill For" which is set before "The Big Fat Kill" from the first movie, "Just Another Saturday Night" which was a short story like "The Customer is Always Right" that was originally going to be in the first film and two originals "The Long Bad Night" starring JGL and "The Fat Loss" which is a sequel to "That Yellow Bastard".

Am Hype.
