My problem with 30 fps locking on PC is that it's just a lazy lowest common denominator decision that forces parity amongst consoles and PC's. The current consoles most certainly are not on the same level as even mid range PC's. Give us an option to unlock the 30 fps lock and I wouldn't complain so much. Screen tearing and judder doesn't bother me much and I will take that over 30 fps lock any day.

30 fps locking on PC has many befits for developers/publishers:
1) Multi-platform releases have parity so that anyone platform is not much better than another and the same price can be charged and justified.
2) Shortens development time when you have to do less development for the PC version which means less money expanded for development.

I hate the mouse controls move the entire screen instead of moving the cursor, was this done for consoles or something? The graphics are low resolution. I gave it an honest shot. The best part of it is the AI banter.

I anticipate this will be heavily pirated and this piracy will be easily rationalized by the people who pirate it.

As opposed to all the other piracy?
Even more easily rationalized given that there are people who feel like the PC version's graphics were lowered to keep parity with the consoles, and now they are putting back the graphics that should have been, and asking people to pay extra.

Fuck Ubisoft. That's my bottom line. If you care you may ask "why the vitriol Overon?" Well the most recent example is the total bullshit that Ubisoft developers are slinging about how 30 fps being more "cinematic" than 60+ fps and is therefore superior and what gamers want. All the evidence for the last 20+ years of PC gaming shows that to be false. They are insulting your and my intelligence. Not only that but saying that is totally self serving. Ubisoft appears to want framerate performance parity across all consoles and PC, even though the PS4 and especially the PC can do a whole lot better than Xbox One. But parity means that the lowest common denominator is what the PC gets. They are pedaling 30 fps on lower than 1080p resolutions and calling it progress. That's just the latest example.
This video sums up some past examples:
fuck ubisoft

I tried it. There is a lot of Jewish mythology. With Elohim (one of the names for God in the Jewish Torah and Christian Old Testament) saying he created you from dust. Weird, if you go to third person you look like some kind robot. There is also Christian imagery. Is this going to have other religious mythology in it? The videos seem to indicate Hellenistic mythology as well. It's an interesting puzzle game. I would put it on par with the Portal series.

I remember playing on "0 g" servers in quakeworld. I expect more from a game that sells $100+ ships and has gotten over $59 million in crowdfunding. Also those stage demos and the dress up that Chris Roberts likes too do looks too be emulating a cult leader. And I only say cult leader half jokingly.

You change over time in response to your environment, specifically what and how much you eat.

Does what your monster eat actually matter? I was hunting for details about that on the Wiki and all I found mention of was that you choose abilities to unlock as your monster levels up and different creatures were just worth different amounts of monster XP.

Haven't had a chance to play a monster yet. Maybe later tonight.

Some of the tougher creatures can drop power ups that you can use.
I thought those power-ups were only for hunters.

Only in the sense of different creatures different amounts of XP. It would be better if the type of creatures you ate had an effect, like xenomorphs in the alien series. Their hosts DNA has effect on their form and behavior and abilities. But sadly that does not seem it's going to be the case for Evolve.

Disagree with yoaur reasoning but not your conclusion. You change over time in response to your environment, specifically what and how much you eat. Of course it takes place on a tiny timescale so Embiggen is not bad.

Also the "monster" in this game are the hunters. They are the aggressors. Why can't they just leave the creature alone? The creature is the victim here. The creature is just defending itself against their unprovoked aggression.

Once again excellent use of the license. Another piece of shovelware from a shovelware developer. Yes I'm bitter.

This is different. This is the mortal kombat and the soldier of fortune of the 2010's. Long black hair, trenchcoat, probably listens to metal as well. Talks like Elliot Rodger.
