News Comments > Dark Souls II PC Issues
16. Re: Dark Souls II PC Issues Apr 27, 2014, 14:57 Paranoid Jack
 
Just wondering if anyone else is having major issues with the camera doing a lot of seesawing? It is making me nauseous. The game is also having a major issue staying locked on when you have multiple enemies close together. Its bouncing from one to the next to the next non-stop

I'm thinking its this x360ce program that is allowing me to use my PS4 controller. Any constructive response will be highly appreciated.

Update: I decided to try GeDoSaTo (DS2Edition Alpha2) to see what it would do as far as improving the graphics. Somehow it fixed the seesawing and the lock on issues. My lock on works fine now which is a huge help. Not liking the blur effect on Whitelist mode so I'm going to try the Blacklist now. Need to research that mod to see what else can be done to tweak it and where.

Yeah, it may rival Duke Nukem Forever by the time they finish or give up on it and move onto DayZ 2 code named NightZ.

Also I've never once fallen through the world/terrain.

So if it's never happened to you, it therefore never happens to anyone else?

Okay.

I didn't say that. I simply reverse his/your way of thinking.

If you've fallen through the world does that mean it happens to everyone?

No!

Okay... then.

there are better MMO's available right now for free (and no I am not talking about all the crappy grinder clones).

so what are you talking about

Yeah, I would like to know of just the best two of these amazing free to play non-grind MMOs. And if having to click "C" or "." to get access to your cursor before right clicking a spammer's name and then click ignore is too much to deal with you really shouldn't be playing MMOs because they require far too much time/commitment. Also I've never once fallen through the world/terrain. And I have gotten into some areas between maps where players were not intended to go. Funny because my favorite memory of WoW was getting between two zones. A friend and I found a hole and we were able to cross between but it took so long to get out at the other side that we never went back that way again.

I'm not saying it's a perfect game. And I'm not saying at times it doesn't appear as if it's ametuer hour over there. I'm just saying some of you are complaining just to be complaining. Which is cool if that is your thing. I've tried ten or twelve MMOs that I never even considered buying retail. To each their own...

That said, I'm enjoying the game for what it is. I know it will have a limited appeal for me. Since beta testing and then playing WoW retail for several months I've become extremely jaded toward playing MMOs. At times I purposely avoid them. But then I remember all games can be looked at as a waste of time if you so choose. Same goes for every other form of entertainment. If you spend too much time doing anything it can wear thin.

Why did they close the banks? In the real world, duping money is how our economy works.

LMAO, don't forget market manipulation.

I'm enjoying the game for what it is. I like the fact that the lack of AH forces people to spend time selling items the old school way. Now if they would just start banning the Gold Farmers/Botters. Their constant chat/e-mail spamming and spawn camping is getting old. I reported dozens of them before giving up. Now I just close the chat window and use a group tab to filter it out. Still banning them would add to their sales figures...

I'm surprised this wasn't implemented long ago. Better still, seeing as phones are supposedly so trackable why can't the cops just find those douchebag thieves to begin with?

They can find them... if you have pull or power. If you're just Joe Public? Forget about it. Besides why should they help you? They're too busy as it is and its not as if our tax dollars were paying their salaries, right?

To be honest I've never seen more cops turning a blind eye than the last decade or so. Its a rare occasion to see one giving out a ticket. Yet, its rare to not see one or more cars running a red light here. Hell, I've seen cops sitting at the red while multiple cars ran the light and they did nothing. Acted as if they didn't see it.

I really wish Premium would go on sale.

That is what I am waiting on. Feel like I was a bit burned on this one and I refuse to buy any/all DLC until the price is near half. If not I will wait until it is all dirt cheap just before 5 is released.

I'm fairly excited about it too. Not on a level with The Division but still excited none the less.

I'll most likely buy it Day 1. Yeah, I know there are Internet rumblings about the graphics being scaled back and the demos/videos not being a true representation of what the game will look like. Just like with Dark Souls 2 yet I'm still going to have a Hell of a lot of fun playing it. Getting it on the PS4 so I'm hoping this will be the one that looks next gen for me. I didn't get Infamous Second Son so I'm not sure if that is the first true next gen game graphics wise at least.

Just a word of warning if it is broke dick like B4 when it releases I reserve the right to grab a torch and pitchfork with the rest of the Internet.

News Comments > ESO Beta Expanding
19. Re: Out of the Blue Feb 26, 2014, 22:56 Paranoid Jack
 
I'm on the fence too. Its almost equal parts like/dislike for me. And if an MMO can't grab your attention and make you want to play more there is no reason to buy it. Going to try the more fleshed out PVE side of the game this weekend I hope. Bad news is every time they beta I am working so I only get a few hours of play time. I almost canceled my preorder last beta period. But I decided to give it another try. So its make or break this weekend or the next.

I'm looking forward to the collision detection on all enemy characters or combatants. I still can't believe they decided not to include that from the start.

I have another code to give away if anyone needs one? I'll check back in a half hour.

I'm now fully convinced that they are somehow linked to the Evil Empire. Every freakin' time they have a beta weekend I am scheduled to work. Only good news this time I am only scheduled for one day not both.

Just got the e-mail too so if anyone wants to give it a try. Seems this one is going to be 3.5 days long.

If it works well enough to keep track of the North Koreans, think of what it will do for your living room!

Although, one of the GWJ guys was saying his XB1 kept mistaking the dog for his wife.


Glad I didn't get one. If I had an XBone it would have thought I was a Sheik with a harem since I have so many dogs...

Say WHAT! Valve wants in on some of that sweet cash iTunes is making?

Just goes to show that graphics over gameplay is not a sure thing when it comes to selling games. Like so many other indie games over the past few years... graphically they look like throwbacks to the '90s but their gameplay is what makes them huge sellers.


I'd like to know the numbers for all platforms combined. I know I bought it for the X-Box 360 and the Android. Though the PC was my favorite place to play.

Dunno, combat just looks too unchanged/unimproved. Dark Souls was already basically more of the same, itself... isn't looking like they are trying to move forward at all.

Move forward to what? It is hard but fair combat. I don't think there is much they could do to improve upon the combat. What would you suggest?

Just FYI, if you buy the Digital Imperial Edition on GreenManGaming it's currently 25% off so you get the Imperial Edition swag for the price of the standard edition. Not bad. Though I'm not 100% sold on the game yet. I too only play a couple months tops now before moving on. So I'm sure I'll get my moneys worth if/when I pull the trigger on this one.

And I'm thinking it will be F2P/Micro Transactions within two years. Not sure anyone including Blizzard has what it takes anymore. For those of us that have played a dozen or more MMOs over the past two decades they all got that been there done that feeling.

I'm scheduled to work the weekend again soon. I'm betting that is their next Beta Test period. I never got far enough into the game to get a really good feel for it but I had fun what time I did spend. So I'm thinking I just may jump on that GMG code... it's only good until 1600UTC Monday 3rd February, so don't miss out!

edit: Also ( I got four e-mails about this launch from different sites) if you buy from U-Play the Digital Imperial Edition lands you a FREE copy of AC4 and the Standard Editon lands you a FREE copy of AC3. Again not bad deals... (PC versions of course)

Jesus, is everybody in a shit mood today? So the Bats didn't like an early access game and asked for a refund. Big fucking deal. People are different, all of us. So he thinks the Sims is shite... it is to a lot of us. No reason for half a dozen of you to insult him and question his intelligence. A lot of people including myself occasionally post stupid shit here. Is there some unknown rule going on here where we can only post the most intelligent conversations. If so we all have failed... miserably. And if we are all going to attack each other for it... we may as well change the name from Blue's News to the RPG Codex 2 or some other shit site with a bunch of elite assholes that rip into each other on a constant basis. Sorry, Codex, but that is why I stopped visiting the site and forums there. So go ahead and rip me all you want...

edit: Am I just being overly sensitive here?

Without getting in the middle of this shit flinging contest I thought I would chime in on DayZ. I bought ArmA2 for the second time to play the Mod a year or two back. Recently I got a notice that Worth A Buy had another DayZ review up and it is worth a listen because he nails it for me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2xwEYo3aF4

I have a love/hate relationship with DayZ. Lately it is all about keeping my distance and not paying a third time for ArmA2. Hell, I already bought ArmA3 because the videos made it appear less clunky... it is not. Barely any difference from ArmA or ArmA2.
