BF4 is just fucked now anyway. Tons of people can't even join servers. Origin locks up, BF doesn't start, lots of fun! Oh, and GTA V online doesn't work for me either! Fuck, it's been such a fun day!

I was just hanging at "loading" with a black screen and I could hear stuff going on in the match including voip, if I alt+tab out and then alt+tab in it'll connect proper.


Considering the horrible performance you get in BF4 it's not surprising they did the beta this short before release. I wonder if I can still cancel my pre-order at this point...

Yes, because a beta pre-release build is an indication of what the final product will be... I also have no issues with performance. Game runs a little slower in Conquest than it does in Domination, but the map is bigger and more chaotic.

Also, I find it funny that the AMD sponsored title is having so many issues on AMD cards.

And what is your point? As I said MAJORITY of all posts are about stuttering, NOT PERFORMANCE. STUTTERING / JITTERY motion. Ain't got nothing to do with performance. The fucking game stutters for us. Like someone hit the framestep button and turned it to 11. And that IS indicative of a major engine issue. You telling me they will suddenly magically tune the game to run smooth for us in the 27 days till release? In fact it is the same stuttering issue I have seen in Planetside 2 (and only there)... weird

Stuttering... Can't think of a better way to describe my experience. The gameplay just doesn't feel right. Feels jerky. But seems FPS are fine. Also I have noticed terrain detection is a huge issue intermittently. Can't jump over low lying terrain at times. Can't jump through textures that are empty at times. For instance a glass store front. I spent a minute trying to get through... shooting out every piece of glass I could see. Yet I couldn't even get near the doors or windows. After destroying the glass windows and doors (4 panes) what would have been ten times over by the amount of ammo I wasted I was finally allowed to pass through the hidden texture.

Other times I was behind terrain near a flags base... the sculpture which looks like waves. And I was shot through it as it popped in and out of existence. That happened at several points. Twice I was hidden behind three feet thick main walls of buildings. Seems my target, the walls, and I were all popping in and out. Before I was killed by his fire through the wall.

I hate to say it but the netcode is most likely the issue. What else could cause these type of things on a 48ms ping to a server half a state away? Yes, it is Beta but... of all the BF betas this has to be the worse showing to date. Usually the beta sells it for me. Usually the beta map(s) are one of the best from the retail product. I just don't feel that applies for BF4. I love the series but I won't blindly purchase this until I see a drastic improvement over the next month... before the beta is terminated.

Edit: I'm here to recant... or eat my words. Go ahead point and laugh.

It seems if you play on a server which has (and I'm guessing here) more than 40 players things start to get wonky. Especially if you are one of the last to join. So yeah, it's just like the other BF games. I joined a private server and the lower the players the better the game looked and played. As the server got hot and filled up I noticed more instances of the game feeling like it was out of sync. Still the last couple hours on that server have given me hope. The map isn't that great but the gameplay can be amazing at times. If you get on a server with only a couple dozen people it can be magical. So try several different servers out before you give up on it. That is all...

I fully understand and would echo your sentiments if I were in your shoes. I've vowed not to purchase from several online retailers for the same reason.

For too many years we have put up with the PSN being inferior to Live by remembering that its FREE. If they plan on charging for it with the launch of the PS4 they better put the infrastructure into place to stop these types of issue.

As far as compensation the only online service that has ever given me anything was Origin. After there tech support guy wiped my BF3 stats about a month after launch. The sad thing is it took them over a month to start seriously responding via e-mail. They gave me several games FREE via... Origin of course. All old games too.

Dude, why didn't you wait to the last minute like me? I'm doing my part to make sure somebody has a XBOne for X-Mas. I'll cancel five days before... maybe as few as three days prior.

I think either the Obama Administration or the NSA took over Blue's News? Maybe it was Anonymous trying to delete the injustice of it all?

From what I had read and posted Cutter's was the worst of it... just saying.

And since when does the government of a Republic force it's citizens to pay into insurance?

Driven a fucking car lately?

Since when have we been forced to pay car insurance? Since when have we been forced to even drive a car? Besides here in Cali there are a high percentage of drivers who are driving with no insurance or registration... and some without a license. Imagine that.

That reminds me I already got some of my Torment Kickstarter rewards (books) in the mail but nothing for Wasteland 2.
What? Real world books or electronic?

I haven't gotten anything from any KickStarter yet other than Conclave. I better start checking in on these projects. I guess I shouldn't just assume they are going to give me what is due?

Hate to say it but I'm not backing anything else until I start seeing some returns... on what I would call investments. Sad truth is I know they are technically donations.

Finally, we won’t have to power off during takeoff and landing.

I don't anyway. Never have never will. If they thought it was important and not a red herring, they would wrap the inner part of the plane with a copper mesh and confiscate all phones. They just say "turn them off" no one really does.

It has already been proven that nothing is interfered with.

LoL, yep. I remember seeing something about pilots/copilots on their cell phone during take off. It's just a matter of time before a plane goes down with someone inside the cockpit on the phone. Then we will all have to put them in a lead box while entering the plane.

Not sure what you mean by shitty/busy controls. I will agree at times the game is difficult to master. Which is a good thing. And I agree that they did a great job considering all the different control schemes and actions for so many vehicles.

I love how the new vehicles feel. When you're rolling in an old beater it feels like shit. When you cruisin' down the coastal highways at top speeds in the European sport cars it feels exhilarating. And the way the game reveals itself in layers was superbly done. Everything from weapons to faster sport cars. Having a damn good time.

Slight spoiler... but then again... not really... if you've played other GTA games you already know this exists in the game.



I've spent most of this evening blowing shit up with a tank. Repeatedly spent more than fifteen minutes at a five star wanted rating. Blew countless police helicopters from the sky and slaughtered cops by the dozens. It was a lot of fun. I was not able to save the tank in a garage. I've tried to trigger the garage with no luck. Just tried to save it at Trevor's apartment and the game locked up while saving. Left it running for more than ten minutes before having to exit the game.

Letting my PS3 cool off since it has been running most of the day. Then it's back into GTA5 for another crime spree. Again, the only downside... the tank at times seems very weak to rear damage from police vehicles ramming me. And if anyone knows how to add the tank to my garage collection let me know, please.

I've been enjoying the HELL outta GTA5. I've reached Trevor twice now due to the first time being a very late night and I mistakenly expecting the autosave to work like a regular save. The next night when I returned to the game after work I was a little shocked to find I was back to Franklin with no access to Trevor the crazy fuck. That is still the worse thing about consoles... not being able to save anywhere/anytime and return to that point in the game. Oh, well maybe next generation? Kind of sounds like an iPhone user right?

Anyway, the game is awesome. A lot like the previous two I played but taking it all to a new level. I'm playing on the PS3. Still waiting to hear from my brother who has both versions due to me trying to surprise him with the PS3 version and him being an impatient sort and rushing off to buy it at GameStop on the 360.

Up to this point The Last of Us was my choice for Game of the Year. Now I'm wondering if I will feel the same when I've finish the main quest for GTA5. I must say even though GTA5 is well polished I still think The Last of Us had far less glitches... of course it was a corridor/linear type game vs. GTA5 being one of the largest open game worlds to date.

You know the worst part... actually its a good thing... there are IMO too many AAA games due out in the next two months. Beyond: Two Souls, AC4 Black Flag, BF4, and of course Watch Dogs. Plus the systems. I'm getting the PS4 no doubt. Still not sure about the XBOne.

Anyway, I'm kind of hoping the rainy season is light. Otherwise I may be spending more time at work and less time playing these games this Fall/Winter.

Yep, after the original WoW midnight launch I never attended another geekfest again. I usually roll in about five to fifteen after walk straight up and out in under two minutes... unless I stop to BS with the guys who've worked there for more years than I care to remember.

Just prepaid for my GTA5 pick up tonight at midnight or early opening tomorrow morning. While I was BSing with the guy at the counter he told me his store had over six hundred preorders for GTA5.

I told him I'd see him about fifteen minutes after midnight then... if I decide to pick it up early.

edit: I forgot to mention... or have I mentioned this before? Our county ranks number one in the nation for the highest unemployment rate.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Saturday, I order a copy for my brother who is down on his luck. I got a notice saying it won't be there until the 19th. WTF? The Amazon page states FREE two day shipping and get it release day plus I've got Amazon Prime which is another way of getting it Free 2-Day. Still kind of wondering why it will be two days late. He has plenty of other stuff to play. I just hope he doesn't go out and buy it. He may trade in some old games or something. I wanted it to be a surprise... ah, Hell.
