Batman kills people instead of just beating them within an inch of their life and leaving them crippled for life. How else do you explain the militarized batmobile? This is Punisher style Batman.
The hostile tanks and helicopters don't have humans in them, but are remotely controlled.
Oh wow. But how do you explain batman beating people within an inch of their life and likely crippling them for life or psychologically damaging them for life? Can't get out of that one, that easy

I was not really a fan of the previous Witcher games. However this third installment looks like it will simply be too good to pass up. Its cinematic (but in a good way) open world and oozes with atmosphere. Cant wait.
Burn the witch!

And as far as her importance goes... well, most of the fourth book (Time of Contempt) follows her, not Geralt, so you can imagine how important she is. She's a HUGE deal.

I wonder how much game time they will a lot to her character.
Probably just a little to show her running for her life.

Blue, how dare you screw up the lore of the witcher? Ciri has been around since before Iphone and Tome Cruise's daughter. Nerd rage!

News Comments > Dying Light Specs Scaled Back

As I said in the previous thread on this: This is Techland. Not a developer known for their ability to deliver on technical grounds and now we can rest assured we are likely to get a console port. But of course I could be wrong and Techland can do what they have never done before deliver a sound PC game.

Not good news for port when they recommend an xbox 360 controller...

Your hopes and trust is misplaced. The developer is Techland!

How is it going to run on the consoles? Maybe these specs are an indication that it will be worthy of a PC game or that it's poorly optimized, it is Techland after all. They are not know for their polish.

The game is designed with too many console imposed limitations.

Does it hurt fps? Bandwidth? How badly? How does it stack up to twitch?
As a non-Twitch user, what's wrong with Twitch exactly?
I think I just want the competition.

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.
