It has some issues.

Performance wise, it's solid as I'm pushing roughly 70-90 fps everything on max except Sync and AA is off.

There are some missing higher end textures for minor detail items.
You can only jump and climb on things that are yellow, otherwise it has one of the gayest jumps I've ever seen in a game.
Using a controller, the 360 controller button setup is rather strange, especially when you look at Assassin's Creed, Batman, Shadows of Mordor, GTA 5.
Oh and have fun holding down buttons. Hold down button to get in the car, hold down button to pick stuff up, hold down button to talk to someone, hold down button to climb, and it's fucking annoying as hell.

Game has a vantage point scheme similar to Assassin's Creed, but more like Dragon Age Inq.'s find things of interest.

Not a bad game for 18 bucks, but just so far it's nothing great, good/decent, but not great.

Ok that was.... wow.


Question time, you can go from RTS to RPG to Action at ANY time? Cause the Aircraft to Sub part made my nipples tingle (in a good way).

Army searching for missile that fell from Apache helicopter in Upstate NY.

If I find that thing, no way I'm giving it back. I'm hanging it in the garage!

Screw that, Entry Way Wall Display!

Shows how little you guys know about PoE. There is no sync issues anymore they built a little thing called lockstep in and NO ARPG has anything like it - it's glorious.

I don't care which one is "best", I had both on my radar for a very long time, but this is they way it played out like it or not.

D3 is a baby arpg, nothing like d2 and nothing unique about it. PoE is the king daddy, true successor to d2 and filled with innovation. You don't have to agree, it's a fact.


So what you are saying is they have horrible netcode and had to jury rig a way to sync the game?
Reminds me of 'Lag shooting' in Mechwarrior 3. You had to double lead your target to compensate for shitty net code.

Please take your Seasonal system and kindly shove it.

If you'd kindly bend over we will.

Now would you like Crisco or Butter Flavored Crisco for lube?

Likely fallout from the extremely botched PC release of Batman....

Um, are you clueless? Typically the AC series has been AFTER the console versions, but have always included better graphics that take use of high end PC hardware.

If anything it would have to due with how badly Unity was performing (on all systems) before it was patched to death (and is still one of the sexiest looking games on the PC).

So I wake up this morning and click on my news based homepage and see a headline indicating that a reporter and cameraman were shot and killed on live TV, in Virginia I believe, while doing an interview.

While I am reading the text I start to hear a woman talking. "Oh, there is an ad or something on the page.." I think to myself and scroll around to find it and add it to my blocker. Takes me less than a second to find the video and than I realize too slowly what it really is. Before my non-caffeinated brain can tell my mouse hand to close the window gunshots are going off, the cameraman hits the floor and the women are screaming. Due to my lack of caffeine and the poorly placed video I just woke up to two people getting killed right in front of me. Holy hell..those poor people and their families.

Fuck you Internet. Going to be a great day, I am sure.


HOLY FUCK!
