But anyone who has been around 10+ years in PC Gaming knows that while AMD has good hardware, they are NOTORIOUS for horrible drivers. Every time I have upgraded my GPU since the good old VOODOO days, this has played a factor into my purchase of NVIDIA cards, and why I will NOT purchase a AMD card.

^

This, and what Verno said. This is exactly why I don't buy anything AMD.

I stick with what work well, Intel and NVidia. Neither have failed me over the years and will continue to do so. These complaints are nothing more then fan boys of AMD looking for someone to put the blame on because their systems are not working as they intended.

Comment embargo at Blues for Witcher Release thread.

What's with that?

(Witcher 3) They fucked up key bindings badly. Can't remap a bunch of keys, and movement keys aren't even listed. If you're not WASD, you don't exist.

But GTA5 is awesome.


Sure they do, its called AutoHotKey. the best remapping tool on the planet. I use it all the time when developers try to fuck us over.

BTW, I have a few hours into the game so far and its been great so far. My only real complaint would have to be that there is no strafing. this console crap for turning right left is bad. it makes you stutter step when trying to move around and potion yourself in front of an item.

I sometimes feel like I'm one of the few that really liked the last Doom. It was, however, one of the few games that was actually too long

I'm not excited by this reveal, because Doom doesn't trigger that nostalgia stuff that it does for others. To me, it's just a new FPS reveal and all I do is hope it'll be a good one.

Your not alone, I enjoyed it too. I especially enjoyed it playing with the mod for 2 players Coop.

I see they haven't graduated from the Doom 3 engine that makes everything look like clay.

I think you would be very wrong about the engine. this is their newer engine, Rage 4. Not the older one Doom 3 was created on.

I need a good reason to get back into this game. I keep going in for a moment and getting bored and leaving for months on end, lol.

Perhaps I'm not sure which direction to go after getting to the end game. Do you just do Rift runs? Is there anything else to do?

Thats really all there is to do, Trying to run Rifts so you can upgrade your gems.

You can run adventure mode, but the only reason to really do that is to get certain uniques that only drop from the bounty boxes and keys.

Nothing else really.

Whats the point? Why is there no PvP in this game? (Or at least hardcore dueling)

I tell you why, because you have a bunch of whinny asshats who are playing seasonal and are bitching about the Witch Dr. AKA Fear DR. and his CC abilities to lock down mobs so the party doesn't get wasted on insta-kills. but that the WD is doing is building out a n XP CC build and they are leveling up faster then everyone else. Which I could care less about but there are always those whinny little bitches who just cant leave well enough alone.

So basically, CC is going to get the big nerf hammer and screw over the game so doing higher G-rifts will now be even more impossible. Yea, Blizz says we are scaling down mob damage. but that wont change the fact that you cant control a mob and the party is going to get their asses handed to them on a platter now.

for those who don't know what the Permanent CC ability is that the WD can do, what he does is wears a specific helm and an off hand I believe, that allows the Mobs to get CC'd when hes in range of them by fearing them it locks the mob down so they don't run all over the place and spam their Arcane, or what ever abilities they use on the party. it helps you get control of the mob and kill them off quicker. it helps, but the higher end mobs because of the high damage they do still kicks the crap out of the melee classes.

My question would be to Blizz, why make all of these Unique items that allow you to CC mobs then screw it over? The same can be said about the other XP Gear like the Cains set. Its such Bullshit and Blizz just cant leave well enough alone.

Blizz likes playing their little game of heres your piece of candy, but your not allowed to eat it. An yes, many people are pissed about this CC change.

Not really a surprise, but hey, at least they are not rushing it out the door. I have a lot of respect for those guys at Massive, I know a few of them from E3 back when the released Ground Control which is a really good game. all really good guys over there.

Yes, I too would like a demo and will not consider a purchase without one.

I would let you demo mine if you were apart of my friends and family. Good game. you can create some really incredibly large maps.

Been having some fun with it, but I still prefer Space RTS games like Sins.

I'm tottering on the edge of 'do I get it now' or 'do I wait'?

I'm waiting for at least a weeks worth of reviews and comments on the PC version before I get this. I'm so tired of getting burned with buggy releases.

That is very true for many companies, but CD Project is a company a wholeheartedly trust. They have never screwed over their customers.

But bugs are a forgone conclusion. I really wouldn't sweat it to much.

Me, I got my copy with my GTX 980 FLW, I'm already pre-loaded and ready to go. Cant wait!!

CJ_Parker, you must be mentally ill or seriously unhappy in life. You call a guy who's exclaiming happiness a dumbfuck. Get a fucking grip of yourself.

Before this announcement, there was no way to know whether CDProjekt was releasing the game 00:00 PT, ET, BT, UT, JT or CET. In other words, Frag4Fun had all the reasons to be excited by the news.

This^

No one knew this information was going to be released In fact it came as a surprise to me too when I read it.

Most people are not sitting around thinking about the date time line change from the EU to the US.

This is really not surprising news about the low sales. Not everyone is looking to play a stealth game about sneaking around to survive.

I prefer running around with hundreds on the screen and laying waste to them. I'm pretty sure many other Aliens fans were looking for that type of game too.

My thoughts exactly, although I'm sure Ironclad was less than ecstatic about their Sins of a Solar Empire sales.

That's because sins was overall an unfinished game. It tried to merge RTS with 4x. The combat was just fucking tedious and the super jacked pirate faction intervening in the game was just a big wtf.

You are clearly clueless when it comes to talking and knowing anything relevant about Sins. The pirates can be turned off dipshit. And the game was completed so I have no fucking clue what you are referring too.

Klingon Academy was vastly superior as far as gameplay goes.

On the other hand, I'm glad they've included 25th and Judgement to start things off. Those are some excellent games all-around.

Sadly I'm at the point where I think no one knows who owns the rights to KA. I'm just glad I've got a CD copy of the game and it still works so when I get the itch I can play it.


I loved that old game, we used to play the hell out of this at lan parties. I do recall there are updated-versions of this out here that some one modded and has working for the modern day pc. Ill have to do some checking and find those links. Man, this all brings back so many good memories.

Own and played everyone one of these back in the day. Still have all the original boxes. and I have the Collectors edition that came with the VHS Video tape. Cant recall the actual Episode...

I used to live very close to Interplay back in the day and knew a few of the guys who worked there. They used to tell me Shatner was such and ass when he came in to do his lines. He would just blurt out his lines without any emotions they said.

Anyway, I'm wondering what my old box version might be worth these days. never opened or played that video. Everything is still in pristine condition.

Now that's some old nostalgia.
