They're going to have MLB online host it, and that's actually a quality online video service. Only downside is that it is NOT low-bandwith friendly. I always subscribed to MLB.tv, but about four years ago or so their SD broadcast suddenly like tripled in bandwith requirements and I couldn't stream it anymore without buffering every 30 seconds.

If you're on a good connection, though, it's solid. Good quality and hardly ever any interruptions in the stream.

Typical attitude luckily only a select few on this forum here share. You're not as funny or witty as you think, boy.

I wasn't being witty or funny, mongrel. If you had half a fucking braincell, you'd understand that.

Oh, all this bullying you have to put up with from people who ignore you and wouldn't actually ever say a damn thing to you if you'd stop trying to be a smartass and pathetically snipe at them every opportunity you get in your desperate attempts to appear cool. But you're too GODDAMN FUCKING STUPID to figure that out. You're even more retarded than TrollinDipshit was. Congratulations. You've finally achieved something in your life.

Now that they've finally implemented being able to port a game between computers without having to download it again, I have very few problems with Origin. And I have no idea why people hate the idea of free games. I grab every one of these, even if I never plan on playing them. Shit, it's free, why the hell not?

The lead Q/A guy was playing it with M/KB during a 1H+ TWITCH feature a month before release.

Nice try, but that wasn't the lead QA guy. Allan Schumacher is the lead QA, he's never been in any of the Twitch streams. He specifically said on the forum that he rarely used M/KB, and played the PC version with a controller because that's the control method he was used to since he had to use it for the other four platforms. I'd link the post, but that forum is moving so rapidly that I'd have to spend hours trying to find it again, and quite frankly I don't give two shits whether you believe it or not.

I wonder why neither I nor all my RL friends have any problems with the controls at all except tactical cam (which is fucked up in general)?

Because maybe your opinions are different? OMG REVELATIONS.

It goes to show that the internet is a breeding pit for people moaning shit out of proportion.

Lik me reet, zeikwijf. Je jankt net zo hard als ieder ander hier, maar dat zie je nooit want je bent te druk bezig met jezelf inbeelden dat je een of andere held van PC gaming bent. Je mag dan wel een kut van goud hebben, maar als je zeikt stinkt ie toch.

I feel like a goddamn broken record, defending this game like I do. But I feel that I must make at least as much noise as those people who manage to make the game sound like a horrid piece of console-port garbage because they moan so hard about having to hold down a freaking attack-button.

Blablablablabla ONLY MY OPINION IS VALID. Is it cold in that ivory tower of yours? Also, explain how a patch which breaks the graphical settings for EVERY SINGLE PC PLAYER ever gets through QA if they actually treated this as a PC game? That should be amusing.

Go watch gameplay videos. www.twitch.com. My friends and I consider this game the RPG of the century.

Well, that about says it all...

Has to mean something, even though we're Dutch. xD

Yep, it means you have either played very few RPGs, or just have absolutely zero taste, but then again we'd already confirmed that previously.

En het feit dat je Nederlander bent maakt je niet special of zo, hoor, dus ik heb geen idee waarom je het steeds nodig vindt om dat te vermelden. Je ging zeker naar Nijenrode op school?

"BUT THE CONTRO--!" "THEY'RE NOT THAT BAD, FFS! Now go back and play your game. You've only spent 80+ hours on this console-port garbage so far."

Not included in your pissy rant is that I've said many times over that it's a great game, and am enjoying it. I've also said that the graphical options are stellar, I'm pretty sure even in this thread. At the same time the UI is fucking terrible. If you don't think so, fine. Large large large amounts of PC players do think so, and you're not some kind of fucking larger-than-life PC gaming legend who gets to dictate reality.

Now go back and whine about how you're being bullied.

Berkes delayed product launches and was unable to deliver on upgrades. ďIf you look at what [HBO Go] is today versus two years ago, he hasnít really done anything,Ē one source said.

Well, of course not! That's How It's Done at Microsoft. At MS he'd have been promoted three times and gotten a 40 million dollar bonus.

I can just picture devs going

"We have to implement a harder difficulty."
"Okay. So..." *types in config file* "Monster damage +60%, monster health +7000%, player damage -50%. DONE!"
"That won't work! Our monster already kills everything in 1 hit!"
"Oh, yeah... Well, then I guess we can... eh..."
"..."

*crickets*


Joking aside, it sounds like they actually implemented a cool new mode, and if the AI actually does do what they say it does, that'd be sweet. Then again, this is Creative Assembly, and their "skills" at writing AI are rather well documented.

Yeah I'm definitely changing my tune as to how good the PC port was, because it's becoming pretty clear they did just zero work on it. The lead PC QA guy (Alan) admits that he basically only played it with a controller. ("Because that's what I was used to from the other four platforms.")

And now this patch which literally not a single soul in their entire company ever even bothered firing up on the PC, and Mike Laidlaw can kindly go fuck himself with his "It's a PC game made by PC gamers!"

I watched Angry Joe's review of the game last night, he really lets em have it on issues like, terrible monetized multiplayer,

I'm not sure what he was complaining about there, as it's literally the exact same system used in ME3, which he was a big fan of. You don't have to spend a single dime to enjoy mp. Ever. It's just that you CAN if you want to, and because that option is in there, you get a ton of free DLC (which is paid for by the people who like to buy chests.) same as it was in ME3. ME3 got five free expansions because of that system.

I'm not complaining. (And neither was Joe when he reviewed ME3.)

MP is underwhelming because right now the combat just isn't a ton of fun like it was in ME3.

horrible PC UI,

Which he admits didn't bother him much because he played with a controller, AND for which he docked the PC version a point and gave it an 8. Which is more than 95% of all the "game media" did.

illusion of choice,

That's bullshit. There is a fuckton of choice in DA:I.

(spoilers)

- You get to choose whether Cole becomes human or remains a spirit.
- You get to choose whether Blackwall dies for his crimes or can redeem himself.
- You get to choose whether Hawke lives or dies.
- YOU GET TO PICK THE NEXT POPE!
- You get to pick who remains or becomes the next emperor of Orlais
- You get to judge just about every major villainous NPC and hit them with hilarious punishments. Watching them cringe is so enjoyable.



I don't think Joe ever actually said that (been a few days since I watched his review), but if he did, then he's flatout wrong.

poor tactical combat/AI etc

Poor AI, yes. Tactical combat is mediocre so far, but it can and probably will be improved.


and then he gives the game 9/10???

He gives the PC version an 8, which I think is fair. It's still a great game, there's just too many niggles for it to deserve more than an 8. Despite Laidlaw's promises and flatout lies, they did zero effort into the PC port. But the game underneath is still great.

Fuck you and your shitty MMO.

It sucks but I can see Dragon Age going there. Look at all of the MMO structures they had in place already in DA:I. It was even storyboarded as a multiplayer title. EA isn't going to resist that microtransactional money forever and the games don't seem to well enough to appease their greedy board if other franchises doing 3-4m are considered disappointments. It's coming man

Probably. They'd definitely be dumb enough to sink another 300-500 million into an MMO that'll have to go F2P in 6 months because nobody subs to it.

Theres an issue with this patch that causes the mesh option to be set to low and causes the option in game and manually editing the settings to not work, so if you've downloaded this patch on PC and noticed a severe downgrade in graphics, you aren't crazy.

Luckily Bioware was pretty quick with a workaround on this while they work on a more official hotfix. Quoted below from Here for your convenience!

Thanks for linking.

BTW anyone doing any MP with this so far?

I played briefly, and was underwhelmed. I loved ME3's MP, but that's because combat in ME3 was awesome.

Combat in DA:I is... "eh" and so MP with waves of that self-same combat is... "eh."

On the bright side, at least most people seemed to know how to play, so there wasn't the aggravation of seeing Varric run straight into the Red Templar Behemoth anymore. God the AI sucks in this game.

Appreciate the link but I don't feel like risking a character on their barely tested bullshit. Letting some time pass before applying the update, hotfix or not.

It's just a shader issue, it didn't change anything about your characters or alter saves.

Fortunately. (They might have pulled a Ubisoft, where they 'fixed' complaints about performance by just destroying the graphical quality of AC:Unity.)

They didn't build SkyUI in a week, ya know.
6 days actually, and then a whole pile of fine tuning.

Ha, 6 days since they announced it, maybe. There were weeks and weeks and weeks of huge threads on the mod forums with all the usual UI modders posting and talking to Bethesda folks trying to figure out how the whole weird flash menu thing actually worked. They didn't build SkyUI from start to finish in 6 days.

Hotfix on the way, and a temp fix for now posted by one of the Bioware peeps. It's near the bottom of this thread...

Edit - See above ^

Eh, it seemed pretty clear that the issue was with something graphical (it turned out being the shaders) being misapplied, so this workaround should work if you already patched. The Bioware rep in that subreddit confirms that it was just a config being mismatched. (It seems the game does weird shit when your Shader and Meshes aren't at the same level.)

Very interesting to see the information that prior to patch 2, no matter what your settings, the game simply used Ultra shaders. They really did no testing on this whatsoever...

The good news: we are offering built-in Ultra HD upsampling with frame rate conversion and HD detail enhancement that will convert 1080p videos to near UltraHD quality on 4K displays.

Uh-huh.

Did they pull this patch yet? This seems to affect all PC copies, not just a specific hardware subset so the usual excuses don't apply. I hope they don't fubar peoples saves. Great job Bioware on not even loading the PC version to test.

Nope, no rollback yet afaik. Which makes me wonder if they've actually already identified the issue, but now they're just trying to figure out how to get people's shit to unbreak.

But it's pretty staggering that they literally did NO testing on the PC patch whatsoever, beyond apparently checking that Origin would apply it. Anyone who plays on High or Ultra immediately notices. (and I'm not even talking about the many, many reports of dialogue no longer working, crashes in menus, crashes in Skyhold, half the frame rate, etc etc etc.)
