It's not hard to be better than Act 4 and you haven't said anything to change my mind about what I disliked.
I'm not trying to claim the storywriting is anything special, just that it's on par with the original game and better than some of the acts. As I said, I don't have any issue with the storytelling - my issue was the lack of originality (locations, enemies) and that there was only one act.

As for my problems with Blizzard and my name change, I said that I wanted to make an official complaint and that escalated the problem. It turns out that I didn't actually need to send any physical documentation and my account details were updated within 12hrs. I don't know whether it's just because I kicked up a fuss or because the initial customer support representative was misinformed (as Blizzard claimed) but it's all resolved now.

The new act sucks. I'm sorry but it does.
I disagree. It's much better than Act IV and it's solid. The biggest criticism is that it's not original enough (locations, enemies) and that there's only one act. It's not like the main story was especially strong anyway.

For me it was just what I expected - more of the same.

I'm really pissed off with Blizzard at the moment. Recently I legally changed my name and provided those details to Blizzard as requested (scanned passport and deed poll) yet they're requiring me to send physical documentation over to France before they'll change it. I didn't have to send any physical documentation to the UK government when I informed them of my name change for tax purposes yet a fucking video game requires me to jump through hoops. I didn't have any of these problems with Steam or Origin.

Blizzard is fucking anal about their real name policy.

I'm loving the new expansion and the update. Crafting is now meaningful, rare item drops are more consistent and the adventure mode is a blast. The expansion is a little weak in terms of content, as you get one new class and one new act, but I'm more than happy with my purchase.

The game is much better balanced now and a lot more enjoyable. Most of the criticisms I had have been addressed. Definitely worth getting back into.

News Comments > Far Cry 4 Rumor Extravaganza
26. Re: Far Cry 4 Rumor Extravaganza Mar 23, 2014, 14:40 theyarecomingforyou
 
The second island in Far Cry 3 was a complete let down. It was just more of the same, only the colour scheme was more drab and the novelty had worn off. There wasn't much in the way of story there - it was all filler.

Personally I'm glad that they're changing it up. Far Cry 2 was a bold new direction for the franchise and one that I think paid off well; Far Cry 3 went back to the island setting but improved the storytelling and gameplay (aside from the pointless sidequests). It would have been pretty dull just setting Far Cry 4 on another island, so a mountain setting sounds good.

That reminds me, I still haven't completed this. But it still pisses me off that the game doesn't allow you to jump - it's a console game through and through.

That should be 14.3, 14.2's have been out for a couple of weeks.
Interestingly enough, the title of the page says 4.2 but the page itself says 4.3. It seems that AMD is a bit confused itself.

Hope I'm wrong but I have no confidence in eidos to put out AAA material, especially after Thief. If it's mediocre of better I'll get it 50% to 75% off sale.
It's a budget game - it's not even trying to be "AAA material".

This whole project is a waste of time, effort, and money. Give it up already and spend the resources elsewhere.
Valve isn't beholden to shareholders - it is free to spend money as it sees fit. Personally I think this is a great move and I look forward to getting hold of one of these. More importantly, it's critical to Valve's move into the console market with Steam Machines.

From my perspective I'd agree that a d-pad would be the more logical choice. The touchscreen is neither here-nor-there - it could be a good idea but I can certainly understand why it was dropped; cost was probably a factor.

Price is going to be critical with this. Hopefully it won't end up costing 50 like the PS4 controller, though I'm happy to buy it regardless.

I've been playing it for about an hour and having a great time. I own 2012 but somehow never got into it, this one feels different though.
Yeah, 2013 is a massive improvement and the classic cars are superb. I'm really looking forward to F1 2014 with all the technical changes made to the sport.

Looking for, but don't see "Win7/8 64 bit". Damn.
Given that it was posted in a tweet I would assume it was omitted due to the character limit.

Nah, it's 2014. Many of us have moved on to SSDs to decrease loading times and stuttering in games that stream content into memory. Unfortunately SSDs are significantly more expensive per gig so needlessly huge games force us to either be more choosy about what we have installed at a given time, or force us to install them to slower spinny disk drives.
I have an SSD for my primary drive but it's simply not practical to use them for gaming. The reason I love Steam is because I no longer have to mess about with discs, installers and directories, as everything is handled automatically - I can have all my games installed. Having to manually install / transfer games onto an SSD and constantly swap them out because of the limited storage just doesn't appeal to me.

Things aren't going to improve until hybrid drives take off (and have the reliability) or SSDs get much, much larger.

As for the size, it states in the summary that it is uncompressed after download so it has no impact on download caps or download time. The real issue is that Titanfall looks pretty crappy and doesn't have a legitimate reason to be using that much space. It was the same with RAGE, which took up a huge amount of space for the textures but they all looked shit in-game. If a game is going to take the best part of 50GB it should be because it dramatically enhances the game, not because it benefits the small percentage of users running the game on minimum specs.

News Comments > Tomb Raider "Exceeded Profit Expectations"
17. Re: Tomb Raider Mar 7, 2014, 13:00 theyarecomingforyou
 
As pointed out, just because it surpassed previous games in the franchise doesn't mean that it is doing well when compared to the rest of the industry. It also depends on how much SE spent advertising the game, as if they invested heavily and only achieved average sales then it can be deemed a disappointment.

Regardless, it was an excellent game and I very much enjoyed it. It took advantage of the PC platform and I respect developers that do that. I look forward to the inevitable sequel.

SpectralMeat wrote on Mar 6, 2014, 11:22:
I doubt we will need new hardware to run DX12.
If the graphics hardware in the current gaming consoles don't support DX12 you bet there won't be too many dev studio that will take "advantage" of the technology because they want their games to be on the console.
Yeah, just like developers didn't take advantage of DX11 because the X360 and PS3 didn't support it... oh wait, that's nonsense. DirectX exists to simplify the development process and sell hardware, otherwise nVidia and AMD would simply opt for their own APIs - in fact the stagnation in DirectX development has already resulted in AMD introducing its own API, Mantle.

There's only so much that can be done via software improvements and Microsoft needs something substantial to retain relevance, otherwise that empowers competitors like Valve with its Steam Machines. The next-gen consoles are fixed platforms and won't be able to benefit from most of the improvements anyway due to their lack of GPU power.

PS - Don't console developers work directly with the hardware instead of using an abstraction layer like DirectX?

We're a little over 3 months into it, where traditionally, there's a lull between launch titles and additional games.

1-2 years from now will be the real indicator.
Graphically this is the weakest generation of consoles we've seen. The XB1 is unable to hit 1080p in a lot of games, including Titanfall, with several going as low as 720p. We never saw drops that substantial with the last generation. Microsoft is having to remove all the GPU and CPU allocated for the OS / Kinect just to get games running well. Even the PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 will run in letterbox (25% lower resolution than 1080p) and at 30fps.

I really hope that Valve gets Steam Machines right as it has the potential to make traditional consoles obsolete. As usual, the PC is where graphical innovation is happening.
