Way to not clarify anything dude. Jesus this is why companies are forced to have PR teams. Game developers have zero ability to keep it simple.

It's funny because I was going to say "Way to parrot your fucking PR guy there, Sundberg."

I see Ubi still hasn't learned their lesson.
They have. People had enough of being forced to use Steam AND Uplay, so they listened to customer wishes and removed Steam

Yeah, I was wondering when they'd take the jump.

It sucks, because there is zero fucking portability with Uplay, but it means a lot more money in their pocket. EA hasn't suffered under not being on Steam, so expect to see this more and more. Yay.

I guess anti-Steam people will get their wish, Steam will no longer be the dominant platform. Instead you'll have 30 different fucking clients (and 30 accounts that can be hacked...)

"The Force Awakens?" Haha, c'mon guys. What's the real name of the new Star Wars movie.

If it had an Honest Name, it'd be "Star Wars: Because You Can't Fucking Resist! "

(Yes, the smiley would be in the name)

Say what you want, but anything would be better than "The Gungan Jedi Master".

Or who knows, that might be the subtitle for Episode IX. Less likely than under George Lucas, but still not too unlikely.

I fucking dare JJ to slip in a line about the destruction of the planet of naboo and watch the crowd cheer.


But... All the hot naboo girls??

I trust Disney with Star Wars a lot more than I trusted George Lucas, the fucking diva.

Oh no question this will be better than the 3 prequels. It's just the name...sucks. Jar Jar hard.

It's not like "A New Hope" set any hearts aflutter...

im still waiting for the 8GB versions of the 970 before i buy... i heard they are right around the corner... shit needs to get here im fucking ready

Would they do 8GB versions of the 970? Typically they go for the top memory number in their most powerful card, so I'd expect an 8GB 980 and a 6GB 970?

I think it is good they fight piracy, but Denuvo is very hard DRM and some people can have crashes or another issues like in Lords of the Fallen.

Fantastic. Apparently selling 40 million copies wasn't enough that they felt they could just use Steamworks and not fuck PC players over? From Denuvo's website: Denuvo Anti-tamper and SecuROM can be ordered through our close partnership with Sony DADC.

Sony DADC? Oh, we remember that one. The fun rootkit one that NEVER uninstalled.

Source:

Interestingly enough, Lords of the Fallen players are reporting plenty of in-game bugs in addition to instability and crashes that are largely attributed to the new DRM system. Developer CI Games is currently working on a patch that should thwart all those problems.

**IF** true, I've gone from terribly excited to "whatever, the Witcher 3 will be out a few weeks later. Choke on your fucking DRM."

Last I seen, they wanted USD$75 for this on steam. Wtf What is the price for those in the US of A?
I know you shouldn't have to do this but can you VPN your way to the US steam web page in your browser and buy it for the regular price?
I mean would your Steam account be flagged for such a thing?

Yes, they will. Don't risk it, unless you do it with a completely new account and are willing to lose 50 bucks.

They're lenient on the VPN early unlock thing (so far), but they come down like a bag of hammers on that particular functionality of VPN (since if they let it slide, everyone would just VPN buy all their games from Steam Russia.)

Can't wait for this. I got a free copy of Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed: Unity with my new graphics cards (GTX 970s) and they should be a good test of my rig.

You got both?? Holy shit. What card did you buy? (I know, GTX970, but what manufacturer?)

Nvidia pick your path promotion is going on right now. If you bought a card before the beginning date (Nov 4) then you can contact your retailer and try your luck. Newegg honored my request and gave me a code. If you ordered 2 cards you can probably get 2 codes.

Oh, duh, I didn't realize he said cardS as in plural. Thanks for the linkies anyway.

Fair point.

They are horrendously underpaid though. According to the Googles, $8000 for the three month season. Given the danger involved, fuck. that.

They don't live in the US. 8000 bucks is quite a bit of money in Nepal. It's probably still not worth it for what they have to put up with, but it's not as bad as it looks.

As for this horseshit stunt, this is why marketing departments need to just unilaterally be set on fucking fire.

What's the point of having car packs when according to people who played the beta, every car drives like you're on a sheet of ice anyway?

BUY THE SEASON PASS NOW! Only 25 bucks. That's a savings of THREE WHOLE DOLLARS versus buying them individually!!!

I must be crazy. I'm looking forward to this. I have yet to finish half a dozen games which I've been juggling over the past few months yet I'm planning on picking this one up on day one.

Has anyone else not had any luck with Dragon Age Keep? I logged in and it has my info from the first two games but I wanted to alter the Tapestry. Tried several times to change and lock in choices only to have error after error occur. Am I just cursed?

It's worked fine for me... From what I've read on the forum, either try a different browser, or log out, clear out your cache, then log back in. Any particular kind of error you're getting?

These are the errors I am getting.

Line: 7
Error: Script error for: app/template/account-check/personas.html
http://requirejs.org/docs/errors.html#scripterror


It wants to open an HTML debugger but I don't know much about site scripting so I just close it and try to log in again. It will usually take after a try or two, log me in, then I get this error while trying to view the Tapestry.

"Oops, an error occurred Sorry, something went wrong. Please try viewing the Interactive Story Summary later."

Are you running NoScript or something? It sounds like it may be an add-on that's blocking something... Try reinstalling a newer version of Java. I'd also definitely try with a different browser (heck, maybe even vanilla IE.)

My TV is a Sony LCD I picked out specifically for its extremely low input lag, but if I didn't play as many games on it, I probably would have picked up a new plasma instead. Good plasmas had incredible contrast and out of the box color for a really low price at a given size.

Never really liked plasmas for gaming though.

Why not for gaming? My plasma looks great for games, though admittedly I've only played Decrepit Gen consoles on it...

Sad that plasma is on the way out. LCD, LED, OLED, LCOS etc, they still don't look as good.
