Was trying to watch some gameplay on Twitch, Jesus that service is *really* fucking annoying. It seems to be either teens who are all gangsta wannabes 'Holy fuck, did you see that shit yo?!' or bimbos in Cosplay gear who are clueless and trying to milk money from guys.

It's fucking near impossible to find a stream of someone just playing at 1080 with no comments or in-game camera of them - really? I came to watch the fucking game, not you. I really just don't get the draw of Twitch with all that horseshit.

Sounds like your first time there.

The horror is the official forums, not what is being said there, but the forum itself, yuck.

Funny watching stream, dude accidentally picks up apple, guards from near and far immediately know he took the apple and they will now just take his life, no arrest, no talking it out. As the dude got on the horse to flee the town, the townspeople are screaming in terror because of this. Dude is saying... "It was just an apple!". Yeah these games need to move this tactic forward, how about a non-discrete guard coming up to you and asking for the goods with a fine on top of that?

Do like going into buildings with zero load times.

It might not be on purpose, there are reports that on games built using the gameworks framework even the GTX 960 is beating the older 780 GTX, which should not be possible. You see the code could be something that is part and parcel of the framework, something that only Nvidia's newest generation of cards takes advantage of, or more nefariously something that lowers the performance on all but the latest Nvidia cards.

I have been wondering what has been going on here, funny how nefariously looks like nerfs and fits. I haven't read too deep into it yet, but yeah this might get interesting.

I also dislike 3rd person in general. I mean, I can stand it, but I think that the game would be better in first person, as would a lot of other games.

Using a mod in a certain game, it's pretty cool, out of combat it pops into first person, when in combat it pops out to 3rd, a pretty cool option. I always find first person so much more immersive moving around.

Anyhow, I fail to understand how new set of drivers could have anything to do with "marketing", please enlighten me.

Well in their own words they push their program of "Game Ready" which can only be found on NVidia products. Selling...

The Illuminati are behind this, and everything is a lie! Word.

Well I don't know about all of that, but it does get their name out there. Isn't "Game Ready" the exclusive feature that allows the system to auto-tune drivers for your system and said game? Selling user friendliness... and again getting their name attached to it.

Here's a german video that shows many glaring differences from the trailers to release version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIS5WHx4xDk

Throw in youtube crap bitrates... I'd put sweet fx on top of the right. It will look plenty good. The draw distance to me is was stood out the most and it wasn't terribad, just a bit more blurry, could be a setting in the file to adjust that as well. But again with Sweetfx, I'll have it looking better than the old demo.

I'm having second thoughts on W3. Here's another. It's not just about graphics, but what else have they butchered? It's screaming 'consolitis' right now and it's not even born yet.

There is next to no way the grass/landscape right next to you will be that smeared and blurry.

The only serious mistake CDPR made was to release this on consoles, I'm glad they didn't make a fucking Gameboy version, otherwise that downgrade would have turned out even worse.

The game keys was a bit of a black eye.

Yeah that was a little thick on the AMD. But like Win10's plan, the O/S, front ends of current gen... these need to now become long term fronts. Meaning, if it goes as it has, we are stuck here for another 7 years.

We need to embrace change and that change is game systems that get enhanced now and remain 100% compatible, but with better innards. Everything else is doing that and at a much larger scale and to even a more casual base. Console gamers can't handle this? Really? It can work AND AND AND it keeps us moving forward timely. PS Sell at a profit like phones, you make money when gamers go out and by the new units, win!. The old units still work, so those that want to wait, can. Many want the better stuff if you'd just give them the opportunity to buy it.

To me that is the next step for consoles to make. How do they see getting big into VR with those mid-range specs, which will soon be unquestionably low-range?

CD Projekt RED is giving back a little of that great cred they built up recently.

Wow. Thanks for that jacobvandy. Disappointing, but pretty clear.

I remember first seeing that 2013 E3 trailer and going "oh man, the new wave is here...I'm gonna have to build a whole new system upon release." Turns out, I should be just fine with a new gtx980, the same i72600k I've had for 4 years and 24 gb RAM. Unfortunately, the awe I was expecting to experience won't likely be present. I'm sure I'll still enjoy the game, though.

Yeah we get the bigger levels due to new-gen console ram. We get less then optimal gfx thanks to new-gen console. Predictable. I guess be happy with larger levels and I am. If it were still the old consoles, I'd probably pass. So we get another 7 years of this bull?

When we canít verify that Windows is properly installed, licensed, and not tampered with, we create a desktop watermark to notify the user. If you ever encounter this watermark on a new machine, I encourage you to return the device immediately to the retailer from whom you purchased it and request a Genuine Windows device. Non-Genuine Windows has a high risk of malware, fraud, public exposure of your personal information, and a higher risk for poor performance or feature malfunctions. Non-Genuine Windows is not supported by Microsoft or a trusted partner.

Why? Or is it just trying to sell fear. Why would a Non-Genuine be more at risk with Malware, exposure and poor performance? Are they drop settings to make that so? Not that I worry, but I just found it strange, you get a watermark, ok, but it's like a Pirate Lite Version of 10, if it really is more susceptible.

It could be compromised before you touch it - the people who cracked Windows or who uploaded it could insert whatever code they want to. This goes for all pirated software but I would think that an operating system is easiest to hide this code from virus scanners with rootkits and access during the OS's installation.

Most of these crackers do it for the prestige but probably not all and I'd worry that my keystrokes were being analysed for credit card info.

(BTW, have you seen the thread addressed to you on the left menu, below the popular threads?)

Got it. That can happen, but then they'll be one's clean to, word will get around.

Yeah, I am pretty sure in a year or so there will be demo stations in stores. Or in smaller tech shops, I am sure they will have a unit to show customers if they ask. Waiting for that before really committing

I'm expecting them to be demo'd the same time they go on sale. I have to see it for myself.

Yep. Freedom and Patriot are becoming words to fear, talk about a massive fall. The bad guys running the show are changing the true definitions of these words. Imo that would make them criminals.

Huh, a cinematic like this for the type of game it is. Reminds me a little of the Upton Game of War commercials. They are getting more advanced and show just how terrible it looks for not even a second at the end now.

On the TB list, but it's a looong list.
