Once again AMD does right to the community and consumers and yet you'll buy a NVIDIA.

Because maybe I like drivers that work, and I have no intention of bitmining on my GPU?

Fun game, but once I get them into Orbit I can't seem to get them to the moon. My frustration and ADD kicks in and I typically just send them off to deep space (not by choice).

So far, I'm enjoying the story, visual's but it has some glaring issues.

Get 4 or more orcs around you and start combat. Release the stick and just hit the attack and counter button. The game automatically attacks the nearest orc without even having to move.
Getting down off some ledges is opposite of say Batman and AC series and has been a mess trying to get down in certain spots (like hunter peaks at the start of the game).
Movement is very wonky at times. You do the typical Batman/AC auto run on ledges, but when your full running sometimes the game won't connect with the next ledge that you can obviously jump to and hang off of but just nose dives ya to the ground.
Repetitive to say the least. Unless you are strictly following the story missions and going after Captains you could spend 100's of hours to gain skills that you can't use until you beat the story mission to unlock them.

Some things to improve on next time:
Would be nice to use the dagger in combat ala Assassin's Creed to vary up the combat, or be able to do some quick attacks with the other weapons like in the Batman series.
Could really benefit from having the Gauntlet 4 some of Ranger, Dwarf, Elf, Mage, and throw in some co-op.
Unlock all abilities from story missions.

Salted CARAMEL!

I think I'm becoming jaded as a gamer. Sorta like Lucas and Star Wars. I was young and the future of Star Wars looked so bright, but then the Force was explained and we got Jar Jar Binks, and brilliant actors tied down to a horrible script.
Now take that and apply it to gaming. Publisher's use to be pretty good but you have some that have gone to the dark side like EA, and now you have Developers going to same route like Gearbox.
They are no longer trying to stand out with their products, but instead figuring out other ways to bring attention to themselves to make sure that they are still on someone's radar.

My Ferrari had a bomb threat, well actually I was just parked at ID Software next to Carmack's Ferrari, well actually I was just in the same parking lot, but I swear I could see his Ferrari 4 rows over.

I'd love to see some real screenshots of the game, and not screenshots of some CGI cutscene.

That being said, I am highly interested.

Gearbox HQ, well not really a HQ, more like a Office Building.. well more like a floor in the Office Building.. well not really a floor, more like 5 offices in the back corner where we are figuring out new ways to recycle Borderlands.

Wouldn't a HQ mean it's the main office and has OTHER offices?

Wow, rather surprised WB would go this route, as the game is pretty solid on it's own and with Batman Arkham Knights right around the corner.

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to The Console Limits.

Game on PC. Accept no substitutes.

Accept this doesn't affect the PC version (that we know of yet), only the console versions.


But to be fair does anyone on these forums know what it would take hardware wise to hit 1080p?
Example: AC Unity will run at 900p on both consoles. To get to 1080p what would you have to remove to achieve that at 30+fps? And what sort of TV would you need to tell the difference between 900p and 1080p?

Why don't they have French accents? This is how they're supposed to sound.

One thing that REALLY bothers me is that the Alien is standing up. Beyond the Queen, was the Alien ever standing in the movies?

Problem is that the Indie scene is blowing up in size like the good old shareware days, and you have 6 tons of shit to sift through to get to anything decent. Not to mention the graphics to match the old shareware days.
