Really wish they'd stop using "ghost" incorrectly. "Ghosting" is when you sneak through a game without being detected, without neutralizing any NPCs and without destroying anything. Basically, you leave no traces of your existence behind, hence the term "ghost."

Killing/knocking people out in a stealthy manner is not ghosting.

There's nothing that specifies that that is how you have to ghost. You CAN ghost through while never touching anything except for a few required keypads.

I do agree that they award the Ghost XP too easily.

He also says the entire game can be ghostable, including the boss battles.

Huge win there. That was the worst part of HR, the silly boss battle mechanics.

I never got around to playing the DC, didn't they fix it there?

First boss fight, yes. You can beat him without ever seeing him (though you still wind up killing him, only with a turret).

Second boss fight, no. While there's supposedly a way to hack a security console and turn the turrets against her, you have to do this hack while wide out in the open, and you simply do not have enough time to complete the hack before she shoots you, cancelling the hack.

And the third boss fight, I'm not sure, as I always deliberately shoot Jamir Namir in the face with a fucking laser gun. Payback's a bitch!

Sweeeeet. I loved Ghosting through the whole thing (still never got the "Sly as a Fox" or whatever that achievement's called, though), and "Give Me Deus Ex" is the only difficulty level that matters.

Oh, and BTW, if anyone wants a free Buzzard (in SP), here it is on the map. Hop in that bad boy and explore...


I thought they'd patched that one out?

Can you limit your game to just friends?

Yep! I have mine set to Crew Only, so only folks from the Blue crew can join.


Or on those days when you just want to work on some skills, you can create a private mp session too. Though it's great to run with crew only, it can be fun to have four or five of your crew and to just hunt people in a helicopter, especially when PHJF is flying, because he's fucking crazy.


I really hope to be able to get it soon, but gotta find a job first.

I hope it's not the case that the devs threw their own money in just to take the $400K the fans had already donated.

Yeah that's the first thing that came to mind, if I'm honest. It seems pretty suspicious.

in some games it has a habit of getting those shooting geometry rays graphical corruption. Dunno what it's deal is but I had the same issue with my last card.

Usually I'd say overheating. Does it take a while before it starts happening?

The old timers all seem to be giving up on the PC and going to consoles.

Not me. My old PS3 died, and I was using it as my blu-ray player. So I figured, eh, since I need a new blu-ray player, I might as well get one of the new consoles. So I did a search what the best games are on both.

Roughly 95% of it is stuff that's also available on PC, and is simply better on PC. About the only game that I really want to play is Forza Horizons 2, and I wouldn't mind having a go at Sunset Overdrive. And that's pretty much it for both consoles.

A year and a half after they've been released, and their best titles are predominantly "games that aren't as good as the also available PC versions."

What the fuck happened to all the good games consoles used to get?? I'm actually debating just buying another PS3...

It's cool that Gula is getting paid for his work for Skylines. I didn't even know he'd set up a patreon account. As soon as I have a job account, I'll sling some money his way, since he definitely deserves it for the awesome models he makes.

This is a good and helpful article some of you may want/need to read before you even think about purchasing a 4K monitor.

That is not a very good article. It's pretty old, and the guy apparently is under the belief that putting two cards in SLI/crossfire doubles the memory, which it doesn't.

Yeah he sure turned Zynga around, didn't he? He was just about as effective there as he was at torpedoing the Xbone right at the start. So which group of dipshits can't wait to get his particular brand of utter fucking incompetence in their fold for the mere pittance of fifty million bucks?

He's ready for you, idiot corporations. DON FUCKING MATTRICK! Snap him up while you can!

He needs to just take it easy, take a few months off, get his head clear and back in the game, then finish up and release what he's got.

No sense in killing yourself over this, son.

Someone please explain why they don't ship on a 64GB USB drive versus discs.

Cost first, obviously. Sensitivity to data loss second.

But I'd actually gladly pay extra for a USB key option.

60 Gig. Heh. Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and say that I'm never gonna download that...

I'd ponder getting the disc version, except it says DVD rom, which would mean it'd be on, what, 10 discs? So I think that's more a box where inside all they have is a download code...



7 Discs according to this

Awesome, thanks man!
