Have 3-4 hours in the game - there is no way the PC was lead platform - it just isn't possible.

As stated, the menu and UI is direct console version. Large text and boxes, terrible mouse input, weird mouse movement, etc.

Weapon wheel is really f-d up. Hold tab then go around, but then there are multiple selections for each item, and it isn't easy to switch. Just a mess.

Because the mouse stuff is so jacked up, gun fights are a nightmare - I guess I could turn on auto aim.

If the PC was lead platform, none of the UI stuff would be this bad. It is absolutely unacceptable in 2014 for this stuff to be like this.

It honestly feels like an arcade driving game with running elements put in afterwards. It lacks polish. Remember the last few Driver games? Where you could get out of the car and run around - yea, it feels THAT bad.

Sounds like a bunch of things got nerfed, so if you weren't in early getting past it all you are too late.

The only thing I can figure that you could be talking about is the difficulty increase in VR level questing with the last patch that was confirmed as being a bug and unintended. There isn't anything that became impassible because of any nerfs.

Yea, only other comments I have heard is that they fixed some of the drops for Motifs and corrected the market. Appears to be all good fixes so far.

Anyone playing yet? It is everywhere.....

Hrm...apparently YOU are. Let us know how it is

First impressions: I will avoid spoilers - just what I have noticed so far.

At first hacking was annoying - gets better.
Controls are....sloppy...not as tight as GTA or SR, almost like there is a very slight lag.
Using kb/m and also controller, takes some tweaking, almost feels like it is mouse acceleration but it isn't - just odd.
Haven't even played a campaign mission yet, spending all my time on side stuff, lots to do.
I said the map isn't that big, I haven't left the first "area" and have a ton to do and messing around with.
Some of the digitizing stuff is annoying.
Although walking is 3rd person, you can have multiple driving angles. FOV is a little off.
Didn't take long to find duplicate people and duplicate conversations in the game.
Cop chases are done better than GTA, they "search" for you and there isn't always a defined "get away" area.
Ran off a 2 story building and died.
Cars are terrible as expected.
Motorcycle is wayyyy to touchy, as others had stated from watching videos.
Progressions of skill trees is done pretty well.
Side games also have skill trees - I am spending a LOT of time in side games - also has leaderboards, looks like it will include friends, so we have to have uPlay friends lists now? sux.

That is after an hour or so of play.
Very impressed.
Is it GTA or SR? No. Is it everything we thought it would be? Undecided. It is a very nice product, and I suggest getting it, especially at the GMG price. Is it worth full price @ $59.99? eh, if you have nothing else to play I guess it is. I am glad I did the GMG route.

Retail stores are breaking the date all over the place.

oh, PC stuff:
Lots of detail and options for maxing out your PC settings. I had them all maxed, and noticed some audio to mouth movement lag, so I backed a few things off and FPS went up big time. It looks pretty damn good, with most settings maxed, AA backed off to 2x. No tearing that I have noticed and minimal pop in. I have not crashed because of pop in, the view distance is an adjustable item, and I have it maxed.

oh, I know this is a killer for some, while driving, you can adjust where the angle of the camera is, and it stays for a while, it isn't like (GTA4?) where you have to HOLD it there while you drive. So it isn't super annoying, but not the best.....there is a very cool in car driving mode that shows your arm and blurred hud.

Gun fights are a challenge early on. I have died 3 times. 1x by cops, 2x by falling off of buildings.

This is utter bullshit. They need to put the time in to fix Metro....FOV sucks, textures are terrible, it doesn't have polish. So instead of fixing the game - they re-release it and charge 25.00!!! F THAT!

The original game has a default FOV of 45!!!!!! WTF!?

Does anyone plays & enjoys this game?
My beta play-through felt extremely hollow.

Yup. Running 6 characters. Each specializes in a craft, but will probably move my Alchemy to my Provisioning character. The update changed a hell of a lot.

7 minutes to drive across the map...(includes video)

It does look like a nice map, but their "7 minutes to drive across" is bogus, as they're constantly turning around and essentially double-backing. It looks like had they driven in a straight line, they'd have crossed the map in maybe 2-3 minutes. Still, the city itself looks nice and big, and well-detailed.

It's a shame the 'country side', so to speak, is so small. I'd have liked to have seen that be bigger. Not necessarily GTA5 big, but bigger than the two streets and a traffic light that it is in WD.

Also, is it me, or does everything seem a bit... empty? This is one of the largest cities in the US, and every street has like 1 pedestrian and 2 or 3 cars on it and that's it?



wow.....map looks pretty damn small!

Hopefully someone does a GTA overlay soon.

Now Batz... don't be hating, I mean you do play Elder Scrolls Online
(you know I love ya right? *snickers*)

Don't be a Cutter, Bats!

I resemble that remark!

Just teasin ya (a little!)


I want it to be good! I really do. But they haven't showed SHIT in game! That is a huge red flag. There is no where NEAR the amount of info/screens/video/etc that GTA5 put out - and they are going for that market.

100% of .1% is not that much. Doesn't matter anymore anyway - time limited trading with online group and bound items. Garbage.

My choc lab/german short hair stands erect (not penis) in perfect form, and kind of brushes his neck on the other dog's neck and puts his head directly behind the other dog's head, and it becomes this sort of stalemate, I try and deter him from doing it, as I know where it is headed....it worries me a bit, cause he plays rough and other dogs think it is fighting......he is a strong male and likes to show everyone how awesome he is....I will try and get a picture of it at the park.

The other 2 are not interested in other dogs at all....just say hello with a sniff and walk away.

There's no easy way to track hours played per sale. However, the fact that DayZ has stayed in the top 5 (usually top 2) sellers for months speaks volumes of its longevity.

Fads generally don't have any longevity. Goat Simulator was in the top 10 for what, a month? Now it's disappeared. You may not enjoy DayZ but the sales numbers (over 2 million last I checked and not including sales of ArmA2 that stemmed from the mod) prove that you are in the minority.

I have a lot of friends in my list that own DayZ, only a very few have more than a couple hours......that speaks enough for me.

I also have about 30 minutes. Was enough to know the game sucks.

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education.

They are slow and touch screens are super inefficient.

The only thing I use a tablet for (kindle fire) is for reading a book or playing a stupid game.
