Did she revert to an earlier stage in her artistic development? The artwork actually looks WORSE than it did over 20 years ago! I was drawing better artwork for RPGMaker95 in the late 90s!

Yep, what I was afraid of. Shitty mobile port released on the PC. Thank you so much, Square Enix! Rolleyes

Sigh, I just knew it. No issues with the game whatsoever besides the occasional funky glitch in the game for 120+ hours straight, and the patch gets sneak installed last night, and voila, 2 crashes already so far today.

FUCKING FANTASTIC. Thanks for no longer allowing people to defer patches, Steam. Really appreciate it.

It's effing ridiculous what MS is doing. If people don't want to upgrade to 10, don't force them. What if they have old hardware that won't work? You're still going to force the upgrade down their throat and brick their PCs?

Also, oh, are you on metered internet through satellite? Here, have 20 Gigs of Windows 10 update you don't want.

MS's behavior has been downright bullshit.

No Bioware, which means no Romanceable Shodan.

That made me giggle.

Here's what baffles me about this Nemesis malware:

The bootkit intercepts several system interrupts to assist with the injection of the primary Nemesis components during the boot process. The bootkit hijacks the BIOS interrupt[6] responsible for miscellaneous system services and patches the associated Interrupt Vector Table entry so it can intercept memory queries once the operating system loader gains control. The bootkit then passes control to the original VBR to allow the boot process to continue. While the operating system is being loaded, the bootkit also intercepts the interrupt and scans the operating system loader memory for a specific instruction that transfers the CPU from real mode to protected mode.[7] This allows the bootkit to patch the Interrupt Descriptor Table each time the CPU changes from real mode to protected mode. This patch involves a modified interrupt handler that redirects control to the bootkit every time a specific address is executed. This is what allows the bootkit to detect and intercept specific points of the operating system loader execution and inject Nemesis components as part of the normal kernel loading.

It does all this, and yet Windows will still continue to boot normally and work normally! Yet if a single frikking file gets corrupted in your Windows directory somewhere, odds are good it simply refuses to boot...

In short, Microsoft needs to hire the guys who wrote Nemesis and have them program their entire OS for them.

I doubt it, given what they've said before. But it would be awesome.

Epic is basically just a bandwagon jumper now, apparently? Just about three years too late in each instance.

The rebels are blue and the bad guys are red, but unlike JC2 where they were predominantly red and blue, here they are mostly khaki with some blue or red accents.

It's pretty difficult to make out if you're in a helicopter...

One other minor niggle, the rebels and Bad Guys look waaaay too much alike. On my first mission, I accidentally wiped out the rebels because I couldn't really tell who was who at the distance I was at. :-oops-:

Played for a little while tonight. First impressions:

- It's a marvelously perfected version of Just Cause 2. Every single thing in JC3 is just better than it was in JC2.
- Gunplay is enormously improved. Whereas in JC2 every enemy was a little bullet sponge for automatic weapons, here a simple mp5 is a murderous death bringer if your aim is good. Headshots actually are easy to pull off now.
- Driving is MUCH, MUCH better. Seriously, if you think it's not better, go play JC2 again. It's a night and day difference. I mean, it's not Assetto Corsa but it's not supposed to be. However, driving is now fun whereas in JC2 it was at best annoying. You can actually power slide now.
- Animations, movements etc are all infinitely smoother. The implementation of a physics engine makes things feel like they have weight and mass to them.
- The Wing suit is fantastic.

Really my only small point of contention so far is with the controls, as I'm struggling with them a little bit. Has anyone found how to disengage the grappling hook? I'm pretty sure in JC2 just hitting your grapple key again disengaged it, but here it won't do so. I keep having to 'disengage' it by traveling beyond its range, essentially, and it makes grapple-gliding almost impossible. I must be missing something.

Another (minor) issue is that for whatever reason the camera jitters in cutscenes, and it does so enough that it actually makes it hard for me to watch them. It's almost like the camera man has Parkinson's or something...

It runs like smooth silk on my machine with everything turned up through the roof. I5-2500K, 8GB and a GTX970.

Sadly, after I liberated a town, it crashed on me, so it's definitely not without its technical issues... I hope they can get this sorted soon because I can easily see myself losing a hundred hours or more in it.
