Well, who on earth has THAT as their gaming PC configuration???! {/sarcasm}

Thanks for spending literally zero minutes testing your game, WB.

It get's worse. According to the VRAM-O-Matic™ (like in GTA 4 and 5) you need just OVER 4 gigs of video ram to run at max settings.

Adding support for latest DLC and Season Pass, you mean that you're giving that away to anyone who bought the game right?

You can buy the keys wherever you want, just don't be surprised if it turns out you get it revoked. Simple as that.

There's a difference between "saving a few bucks" like buying something from Amazon compared to Best Buy and buying it at a ridiculously low price from the digital equivalent of some dude's van in a dark alley. That's called "too good to be true," and you might have the cops knocking on your door a few days later asking questions about it.

You are not a consumer, with the rights that that relationship with the producer entails, when you're not buying the product from sanctioned sources.

I'll tell you what, when WB finally patches Batman AK and gives me a free season pass I'll pay the rest of the balance to US Retail Price.

If WB and Avalance games patches in stuff to make this game suck less (HOLD BUTTON, Only climb on yellow stuff, crappy mini-cutscenes) then I'll start slowly start paying them the rest of the retail cost.

Because games with no multiplayer or long shelf life (mods) seem to go really cheap at Key selling sites, even with pre-orders. Go take a look at the single player games on those sites and unless they are AAA titles the vast majority go dirt cheap.

It figures that you'd like a casual game like this whilst zealously bashing Star Citizen, a game with depth.

Star Citizen has an arena module and a social module. Until proven otherwise it has the depth of a used tampon dispenser.

Ouch. Don't hold back now. Tell us how your really feel.

This is the 1st time I've said how I've felt about Star Citizen beyond they really need someone like Derek Smart suggested and figure out wtf is going on with the project and keep them in line/accountable.

But when some idiot likes to compare 1 game, vs another game that isn't even in Alpha or Beta (and sadly is spiraling out of control) I just have to say something.

It's not funny if you're 6'3 and every time you go to the damn grocery store you're the person getting shit off the top shelf for the "vertically challenged" people.
I'm going to start asking them to get stuff off the bottom shelf for me cause I'm too tall.

Something else Batz didn't mention that is back from Just Cause 2.

Annoying mini-cutscene's for everything.

Putting gas tanks in the trunk, collecting water, etc. It's as fucking annoying as calling in a vehicle in Just Cause 2.

I've been using a 360 controller, and I have to say with exception into running into environmental stuff, I really like how the vehicles handle. Your car is just that a car. Drive it off a cliff and expect to take damage, same with ramps.

There is a perk/upgrade system to Max and out of the first set of skills you can pick 4 or 5 of the them at their lowest tiers. One of mine I choose was gas last longer so I've not had the issue Batz has, or I'm just a better drive them him

I like the survey the land system much better then say, Assassin's Creed. Look at things within a certain range and they'll appear on your map, and there are smaller ones that you can see (and you can REALLY see far) and check out which is kinda cool for the explorer in me.

Unlike Batz, I like the system of knowing how much stuff there is to find at locations. I hated Just Cause 2's system of where you only got a percentage and you'd have to hunt for that last destructible object to clear out an area.

Nice thing about clearing out a camp is settlers come in and give you salvage like owning buildings in Assassin's Creed Series.

On a I7-3770 at 3.5 (stock) 8 gigs of ram with a EVGA GTX 970 the game runs roughly 70-120 FPS at 1080p with everything on except AA and V-Sync. Beautiful game, especially small stuff like footprint depressions in the sand ala Batman Origins (granted it was snow).

Not a bad game, but not a great game. Was worth 20 bucks.

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.

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.
