MS wants to release Win10 this month but I've been working with the latest builds of it every day and it's still a horribly buggy mess right now... there's also serious bugs that MS said to us that they are not planning on fixing until Fall/Nov 2015! there's no way I'm going to switch from WinBlue (8.1) until at least Win10 SP1 comes out, or only when they start seriously fixing the bugs. the DX12 exclusive games will have to wait before i play them.

if you use win8.1 willingly, there is no reason to listen to anything coming out of your mouth

better idea would be to ignore everything you say from now on

Good to see that the elitist pricks of Blues News are still at it.

News Comments > More Arkham Knight Issues; GMG on Possible Refunds

With Origin and Steam offering refunds now, and the public outcry over this game's PC problems, I hope it'll send a message to game makers we won't tolerate this. Unfortunately, companies may also look at this and further sink into "putting games out on PC isn't worth the cost/hassle" self-delusion.

Companies have been getting away with being able to push out a shitty game and the customer not being able to do a damn thing about it. I remember as a teen back in the 80s you could buy a game and return it then that ability was nixed. So they have been doing this for around 25 or 30 years that I know of. Anyways I hope your right and companies start making better quality products. All though they will probably go the easy route and just go with the console market.

I see that you play the role of a housekeeper and you do chores. Not the kind of fantasy I want to escape too. Not sure what goes on after that but that was enough to make me loose all interest.

Wild star is a great game I just hated feeling obligated to play it by paying a monthly fee. Glad to see they went free to play, now I can get back into it.

If they activated they're legitimate keys, it doesn't matter how they were purchased. That's a problem with the merchant software and for the CC companies. This sounds more like regional pricing protection bullshit than actual stolen keys. Fine, if that's the kind of party they want to have I'm going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes.


Yeah so? All they are doing is warning the customer of buying stolen keys that put the customer at risk of identity theft. Your saying fuck the customer let their credit card # get stolen and keep this cycle going? Canceling the codes is the right thing to do. Then the customers can get into contact with the fraud department of their credit card, dispute the charge and also have a new card issued since their old one is at risk.

I can deal with mediocre graphics as long as the game play is sweet. Looks about on par with Skyrim's graphics.

It was really cool until the pistol then rifle then dragon showed up.

I don't mind the minor tech to much depends how they do it. The dragon I was kind of meh on though. I hope they don't go to overboard with fantasy.

I did like the variety of mounts. Something to keep an eye on.

I'm just worried Fallout 4 will be Skyrim with guns.

Agreed.

We'll see how "The Witcher 3" ports to the whole Skyrim OPEN WORLD bullshit that video games are doing these days.

Open world is fine, as long as it's well balanced. I found skyrim to be extremely boring but my brother says it becomes very fun once you mod it to be harder. I just think "Why didn't the developers have this sort of difficulty slider from the start?"


You know there is a difficulty slider in options. Maxed out you can be killed easy (Least on PC). I also play with the gamma very low so you caves and fortresses are pitch black unless you use a light source. This also makes it much harder.

I love my internet but I love my body parts even more. It's easy to say you would give up a finger, but put that baby down on a chopping block and a couple of guys holding your hand down and another one holding a meat cleaver. I bet their story would change. If not they have an addiction issue.

That's the thing about (epic) games like Fallout. They are seriously their own hype machine. Publicity is as cheap as a Linkedin profile, or even better still some elaborate hoax on someone else's dime.

I haven't enjoyed Battlefield since Bad Company 2. Being able to take down whole buildings was awesome. Blowing holes in roofs and coming down into a house full of enemies was the best. In Battlefield 3 and 4 the graphics might be better but Meh I just can't get into it.

News Comments > Arma III Free Weekend; BIS Sale
25. Re: Arma III Free Weekend; BIS Sale May 8, 2015, 20:34 Illumin
 
Even if you don't like Military games, the mod Arma 3 life mod is awesome. Want to run drugs? Pick apples? Rob people? Make a rebel outpost? Join a police force and arrest drug smugglers and robbers or pull people over for making an illegal turn? Rob people at ATMs? Just google it up and watch some videos. Frankie on PC has some good ones a bit old now but you can get the basic idea of what you can do. Im sure there are some newer ones out there now. Anyways if you do the free weekend look into doing this free mod. You will have a blast.

Eliminating gender categories just means people aren't being told what kind of toy to buy based on the kid's sex. Families might have to actually ask the child and see what kind of thing they're into. It's a small step, but a good one.

Also there's a difference between sex and gender.

Most adults do ask what their child wants for Christmas, birthday, gift giving holiday. If a parent doesn't want their kid to play with a barbie or what have you, this isn't going to stop them.
Having a boy or a girl option just helps making it easier to sort.

jacobvandy wrote on May 7, 2015, 21:03:
They're changing how you equip traits so that you only have three lines available at a time, but I believe you'll be able to completely fill each one. As opposed to how it is now, where spending all your trait points gives you 6/6/4 if you focus on three. But then, you won't be able to have more rounded builds like 2/6/6/2 or 2/4/4/4/2. No way to know how that will affect everything yet, since they're overhauling a lot of that stuff, rebalancing with combining some traits and adding new ones, as well as eliminating some old traits by folding them into baseline stats. Major traits are locked to their respective tiers now. They're also taking the attribute bonuses off of trait lines altogether and raising the amount you get from armor to compensate. This is a huge patch that will be coming before the expansion is released.

Anyway, the elite specializations are another trait line in addition to the existing ones, with unique abilities that are only available when you have it slotted, too. So like for the Guardian, which has Zeal, Radiance, Valor, Honor, Virtues, and soon Dragonhunter, you choose three of those to equip traits from. They've said there will be more elite specs in the future, but you will only be able to have one active at a time. I agree this is a weird aesthetic they've chosen for the Guardian... We've known it was getting the longbow with support skills for a while, but most were expecting more of a Paragon hybrid thing with chants.

This calculator gives you an idea of what the new trait system looks like, and has all of the known trait changes mixed in:

Meh sounds like they are dumbing it down like wow did with the talent trees.

The only one that was any good was Black Flag, and by association Rogue I'd assume.

They might as well just release a standalone non-AC Pirate game cause thats all anyone wants now.

I love the navel combat just wish it was harder and more in depth. It reminds me of that PC game "Sea Dogs" which was great.
The way they are pumping out AC games now days though is kind of killing it for me. It's turning into another Call of Doody.
