Outlast 2 patches down the difficulty by reducing battery consumptionOutlast 2 patches down the difficulty by reducing battery consumption

I never got just how quickly these batteries die. A modern 3C Maglite, 79hrs. 79! Hours! Now the old bulb ones were about 10 times less efficient, but that still gives you 8 hours of continuous use. It makes more sense in the games where they swap it to a video camera but even then, the /shortest/ length of recording time I have seen on one battery is 45min, most are much longer because lets face it no one is going to buy a camcorder withe a battery life as short as the ones seen in video games.

Huh, I was pretty sure that xInput games did.

xInput is only an input method. Yes, the API can signal whether or not controller was disconnected (because "just dead" controllers are indistinguishable to the software from wired controllers that were just pulled from the usb port), but it's up to the developer to do anything with it and e.g. pause the game.


Also, you can't pause in multiplayer, so...

Most games auto pause when the controller goes dead, though with Multiplayer you are SOL.

Sucks for those of us that don't want the "wider framework".

Maybe they will learn that review embargoes and buggy day one code won't get them pre-orders and day one sales. (the industry in general)Reply

Yep. This. People are waking up and smelling the bullshit, and finally acting in accordance with their wallets.

Given its base speed I would have gone with Jolteon over Pikachu for Tracer. (Deoxys, Ninjask and Electrode are quicker still, but the designs are not as good)

Maining in Overwatch is like maining "Rock" in Rock, Paper, Scissors.Reply

Or playing any Wargaming game, just w/o the ability to adapt during the game. Not relevant here, but I couldn't miss an opportunity to express my frustration with said company. :)


And yeah. you're right.

How open is No Man's Sky to explore?
Very but also at the same time where are the worlds that have no life at all or anything just a gas giant.

I have found several dead worlds, little atmosphere, just rocks.

DiRT Rally review snippet How muddy does DiRT Rally get?
Wales! Wales is all about the mud. For fans of snow there is Sweden, Gravel fans can head to Finland or Greece and if you like a more standard road surface Germany has you covered. Finally, for those of you that like driving on sheets of ice with patches of tarmac, you can head to Monte Carlo
