"Hey we will hold the game back a bit to see if we can squeeze more moneyz outa you guyz...."

Thats kinda lame. No thats super lame. I was going to pay full price for this game when its released but this kind of behaviour is fucking unnaceptable is what it is. Sorry, but fuck that.

No, that's not what it is. It's a poll to decide whether backers would like to add more features that some have been asking for:

We've always taken your pledges seriously and we remain committed to giving our backers every stretch goal you reached during the Kickstarter campaign. Budgeting a game of this size can be daunting, but we always remember the cornerstones of our pitch and the features you funded. Even so, there are two things we know a lot of you have asked for: more wilderness areas and more companions. Both of these are very time-consuming, but we understand why so many people want them. Because we've seen these requests more than a few times, we would like to ask the community if you would be interested in new stretch goals to fund additional development. If not, no worries: we're still going to deliver on everything you've backed.

I've already fixed this problem with StartIsBack, seamless integration into the OS, doesn't run as a background program or service.

Proper Start menu on Windows 8. $3 bucks and done.
Yeah, that's what I got and love it. Boots to desktop and that's where I stay.

PS4 Global Sales Update. 2.1 million sold.

And that's before Japan, their stomping ground.

Woot!
I wonder if the Japanese are pissed that Sony is selling to so many other countries before them.. Sony's homeland.

I hope they patch the game to allow more adjustment of the music. I turned it down to the lowest setting (50%) and it still seems too loud at times. Maybe it's just me but I don't like much music in most games..

Personally i always get almost motion sick looking at tv's with the 120/240 options set on. Just doesnt look natural to me and i can notice slight 'jerkyness' from it as well. I have a pretty expensive samsung tv and its infinitely better with the function off and running at standard 60hz.
I didn't even know that could be changed! I guess I'll figure out soon enough though. I'm also looking at Samsung or Vizio.. both have good reviews.

Its different with tv's then it is with say monitors. With tv's its making up frames that dont exist and 'guessing' what frame will come next. I suppose its possible that maybe 240 is more accurate then 120 in that its guessing more and quicker. For me though thats the first feature i turn off with any tv.
Yeah, I was trying to find some more info online and most sites say that there's not enough difference to justify going with 240. I'll just go with a 120hz because it's cheaper and stores are having better Black Friday discounts on those.

I know this is kinda OT, but does anyone notice screen blurring when playing games on a 120hz TV? I heard 240hz is better because fast movement is sharper but those TVs are several hundred dollars more than 120hz (well, at least on the size I'm looking for). I hope to find a good one tomorrow and don't want to spend more for something that isn't really noticeable..

Anyone here try that yet? I wouldn't put a SSD in mine because they're still too expensive for high capacity but maybe a regular one with a faster read/write speeds.

Does the new Xbox also have one of those power bricks like the old ones?

It has a huge power brick, yes.
So the Xbox One console is significantly bigger than the PS4, has a huge power brick, and is less powerful than the PS4? Nice..

A HL3 announcement would have been a nice 15th anniversary surprise for us! Oh well, maybe on the 20th anniversary..

I think the original HL was my favorite game until HL2 came out. Still waiting for HL3 or HL2:Ep3...

It's a shame that Valve barely develops any games these days, though what they've done with Steam has redefined PC gaming.
Yeah, you'd think they would be able to afford to hire more people to work on games too!

I'm hoping that, now that amazon has a store front selling PS codes, we'll see those kind of discounts from them, as well.

Yeah, I've seen them sell Xbox Gold subscriptions for less before so they should do the same with PS+.

Verno wrote on Nov 18, 2013, 12:29:
Moving on, I got a buy 2 get 1 free game deal with my PS4 and so I foolishly picked Battlefield 4 as my third title. Wow what a broken piece of shit this game is, Conquest mode doesn't even appear to work and I've seen multiple server crashes in under an hour. That's what I get for giving console FPS a chance again.
Hows the single-player campaign?
