Their management is just terrible. There has to be good people there, just being directed by trash.

I've changed my mind on this game after completing the into and the first mission.

I absolutely f'ing hate the inability to map my keys as I see fit.

I have a Naga and a Nostromo, and I cannot bind the common keys I want to the buttons how I like them. I am not doing anything out of the ordinary either, this is awful.
Also- in the menu, it's built 100% for a gamepad, there is ZERO mouse support in the menu.. none, zip.. it doesnt work.. you have to use your arrow keys like a peasant.

the FoV hasn't bothered me yet, and the locked frame rate is fine for me at a solid 60fps.. the game looks great.

I just wish I could remap the keys how I want them.. why is this even a problem???

Why wouldn't you just make a profile on the Nostromo and Naga to what the games are? If can work that way as well. Not saying non-bindable keys don't suck, but you have the hardware to work that way.

The first hour or so of the game is a prelude that takes place after you wake up from a 9 year coma. For the first hour of the game, I basically kept repeating "what the fuck is going on?" over and over.

Then I hit the first open world mission and it started to make sense...right up until the end which had me WTFing all over again. I guess I didn't realize that not only does Metal Gear have a bit of sci-fi future tech but it also has a supernatural element as well. Not sure I remember that from the NES game or Zero. (The only 2 I have played.)

Ahem...

Individually we all will have our opinions on what is ok or not with collecting our data.

But take this into big corporate world. They are paranoid over their own people leaking, to think encrypted data of who knows what goes to MS and they are ok to do whatever they want with it. It would be silly if they were so tough on their own employees and then let another company just snoop in to their systems and take whatever and you have to assume this goes straight to the gov't as well.

My company would never agree to such terms if brought directly to them. This is interesting.

God forbid people don't check Twitter or Instagram for a few hours while flying.

Personally I just use it to stream music.

God forbid people can't play music locally on their device for a few hours while flying.

Alright CliffyB, as a former Tribes player you have my interest.

However I'm still waiting to see if the other shoe drops with F2P shenanigans...

They'll be asking $$$ if you want to play additional enhanced players, right?

They focused way too much on the DM/MP aspect of the game and gave zero consideration to real PnP players.

Probably need to be true turn-based to ever get this "I can do anything" feeling. Real-time which this game is would just go by too fast.

You can't alter dungeon layout to your choice you have to rely on a random generator and then just go with whatever it gives you. This one is dead on arrival due to that missing feature.

Yeah simple... next to no other games are doing that either. Look at the rest of the game and its unique features... still interested?

Now perhaps that is what you are looking for, I guess the search continues. But don't pick up anything else like D:OS, PoEt... D:OS is very hard to use, PoEt crickets.

Tons of people want the finest things because you can make the most unique things. But it will take many many months at a much lower level, most players will move on to another game to ever even try user creations. 1 out of what 25 people will actually finish what they start.

Point is there is no perfect situation here. This way you will get finished products sooner rather than much later. But will they feel cookie cutter? Perhaps.

Yeah I can just leave the DnD name out of it if need be. The coop w/Dungeon Master is a unique enough feature for me if done well.

I could see them doing live action with a lot of CGI to layer the signature art style on top of everything. Then it'd be pretty easy to pull off some of the more bizarre characters and settings. I wonder if they'll have voice talent from the games involved? There's no way they'll change Claptrap, right?

Live action with cell shade!

borderlands dialog is painfully bad.. with all the schticks and the cliches and the "OH NO YOU DI INT!!" type "relevant" slang...

btw the whole Handsome Jack character made me want to track down the writer and punch him in the brain.. voice actor didnt help at either

its funny because i think kids these days actually truly worship (what they themselves call) "douchebags"... (which is an insult where im still trying to understand how it made it so far mainstream.. when i was growing up only toddlers and tiny children used it.. it was immature as fuck, same as when they say "oh thats gay" and all that)

anyways, the kids worship douchebags - they aspire to be like them, they want to give them blowjobs all day

so yeh, make your movie, make your money, etc.

Well you were dumb for even playing and knowing about all this stupid shit you talk about then. I myself got it, like I also can get adult cartoons.

There is plenty of clickbait looking for hits from low hanging fruit like the people in here, yes. You should really trust a few forum babies that think Windows 10 is keylogging their porn activity instead of your own hands on experience or the many tech sites that have reviewed Windows 10.

Fair enough, please put a link to a great tech article on what is going on here and why not to worry.


Literally type Windows 10 reviews into the search engine known as google and read up.

Like so example 1.

Anandtech for the Ars haters

Or just try it out like I did, not that hard. Why take someone elses word for it? You shouldn't be listening to these idiots or even to me, make up your own mind after trying it. I disabled everything I didn't like in less than a minute, just like Windows 8 and Windows 7. Boo hoo what an inconvenience. If I listened to the peanut gallery here I would be running Windows XP, not connected to the internet and wrapping my head in tinfoil.

The many improvements are worth clicking off a few things, just like Windows 8 was fine after you disabled their stupid start menu.

GTFO

Those links are way too light weight to get into the intricate details. And like there is someone here that hasn't read those type articles.

The 2nd Link:
"Many of the services which are designed to help you are going to require access to your information in order to function. Cortana canít let you know about an upcoming event if it doesnít have access to your calendar."

First I don't want this help and see, we need your entire calendar so if you ask Cortana something (Which I don't have a need to do) we can make sure we don't double book you. And then the EULA reads close enough to "we have the right to do whatever we want with your data, period." I'm not doing anything wrong but I don't want that. And those weak ass articles show some sliders which we know don't really block all we want. There are privacy reasons why Home/Pro and Enterprise/Server are different and well I want total privacy if I ask of that from my O/S. If I go online via a browser, I get some more data of mine becomes public, but only just some, not like my whole calendar to anyone by default.

This is the gotcha, the whole reason why 10 is free. They are getting money figuring you out and selling you. I simply do not want that and that is a choice we all get to make. It is real though, it isn't hocus pocus like you suggest. There were several other good replies back to you as well. I do have updates off on 7. I can block some of their extra shit to if I want, I just would have to block a lot more shit in 10.

This is the worst problem with 10. The second one and I can't help but stop laughing on that is people are still installing Classic Shell on 10 because all of a sudden MS can't understand what people want from the Start menu anymore, I guess the right guy left the building.

DX12 better be BEAST.

Is any of Valves hardware gonna come out on time? It was seeming way too quick for it to hit this year, but they paraded a very aggressive date. 2016 doesn't mean they are bullish that it is a small delay.

Boo.

It will be after, PC first even leaving Mac outside looking in. I believe ultimately it comes to all the same platforms and linux quicker than D:OS did. Sven answered this question for a Xbox One Kickstart lurker yesterday.

Thanks for the info. It will be interesting to see how they port the original and if other platforms will influence the PC version in any way.

They have already with controller and split-screen coming.
