Does anyone plays & enjoys this game?
My beta play-through felt extremely hollow.

Yup. Running 6 characters. Each specializes in a craft, but will probably move my Alchemy to my Provisioning character. The update changed a hell of a lot.

My desktop has been down for almost a month, and now Watchdogs is coming out on Monday night, so I didn't re-sub when my 30 days were over. I have a pre-paid card to reactivate my sub, but I am waiting until I will play it instead of wasting 30 days playing something else.

Plus, it's been in the 80s most of the month and I've been doing a lot of hiking and training.

After Rage, anything on that engine is a no buy for me.
What did it have sex with your mother? Not the best engine in the world, but what's your particular issue to it?

You asinine comment aside, iDtech 5 is a piece of shit engine. The "megatextures" take up ridiculous amounts of hard drive space and look horrible unless it is distant scenery. Textures pop-in because of the way the engine streams. Rage, for all the hype about megatextures, looked awful. The textures were muddy and low rez like they were from a decade ago.

Hopefully we won't see it with DOOM 4 using the idTech 6 engine.
I doubt that we will see Doom 4 at all. I doubt that we will see idTech 6 after Carmack left. There is no one left an id, who is able to do that.

And yes, idtech 5 is horrible. Only good for rendering highly detailled, vast landscapes and nothing more.

We will see a Doom4. Its almost inevitable. Sure it wont be made by id (or at least no one from the original team) and it probably wont be coming out any time soon but it will get made. You can bet your house on that.

Sure it will, since Wolf pre-orders came with a guarantee of beta testing it. It's gign to be on Idtech 5 though. After Rage, anything on that engine is a no buy for me.

So I managed to get it running (updated the AMD drivers). Works now. Lots of in-game cut scenes in the first 30 min (no quicktime events so far). Need to get some sleep, but I'm enjoying what I saw. Not to spoil, but the "enemies" you see at the very start are impressive (what they are, not how they fight). On that note, don't play on the default setting. It's really fucking easy. Bump it up a notch.

So far so good.

Reviews look decent this morning...

Reading reviews, this seems like a mediocre FPS with a 10-12 hour campaign released the week before one of the most anticipated games this year.

7s and 8s is "mediocre"?


In a world were games average 7 and 8 all the time, yes. I read the reviews, though, not the scores. Scores are generally meaningless since I have seen so many reviews where it sounds like the reviewer has a bunch of complaints about the game and yet gives it a 7 or 8 score.

IN other words, if you really want to play this, wait a few weeks. It'll be $20 before you know it, and that's what it seems worth.

nobody ever really played the multiplayer portion that much. they even made the multiplayer (Fear Combat) free back in 2006.

having myself run the FearWiki.com site and being active in the Fear scene long ago i know this very well.

The multiplayer on the original FEAR was a lot of fun.

Bioware.
Oh cool, I bet the statue is...wait, what? No statue? WHY THE FUCK IS THIS $170 THEN?!?!
Bioware.

Did I mention, Bioware?

I'm actually looking forward to Sunset Overdrive, and I'm going to wait until the reviews are in on this.

I'm sorry. I get annoyed at developers who claim to "love" pc gamers, but who never do anything for them.

I apologize if my complains have made all of you lose your minds over it. Holy shit, for all the bitching you guys do you sure love to stick it to someone else when they do it.

Fucking hypocrites.

Psssh. We're Bungie. We're so used to fucking you PC guys that we could care less at this point. Buy a console, you scrubs!
In what way has Bungie "fucked" you? What specific harm was inflicted?

You mean other than taking a PC game and hyping it for years and then deciding it was instead an Xbox exclusive? Only to release it years later as a shitty port? Or making the sequel not only years later than the Xbox version, again, but ALSO making it so you had to have Vista to play it?
Yeah, but what did you actually lose? Did a game you already had purchased disappear from your library?

No no, the definition of "fucked" has changed. It now applies even when you only feel you've been wronged.

Yes, because "fucked" has ever had a set definition.

I'm sorry, do you not know how the word "fucked" is used in the English language?

You mean what Microsoft did when they bought Bungie? Or how MICROSOFT made Halo 2 a Vista exclusive?
As for hype, Halo did for FPS shooters (especially on consoles) what Quake did for 3D gaming.

Sorry but you just sound like a whiny bitch who didn't get the right color convertible on your sweet 16.

As opposed to all you that have nothing better to do than pick apart my Bungie hate post? Good game! Name calling especially makes you look like you have a valid argument.

Clearly Bungie LOVES PC gamers. You know, since we're definitely getting a PC version of Destiny.

Oh...wait...

Haha, this is why you see used Desert Eagles in gunshops all the time. People think it's so cool because they shot it it video game X, or saw it in movie Y.

Little do they realize that a fully loaded Desert Eagle weighs a little over 5 pounds. That's right folks, let's go to the range and hold a 5 pound bag of sugar at arms length for a few magazines. Not so cool now, is it? Not to mention that even with the gas operated recoil system, the recoil is pretty hefty in every caliber, but especially in .44 and .50. Oh, and those .44 mag and .50 AE rounds are over $2 a shot.

Plus there's this for the technical folks out there.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order this game. Now I know not to play it. I'll wait for Wildstar.

I didn't pre-order anyway. Ended up liking it so much I went out of my way to find a CE.

Tried Wildstar this weekend with a key from Alienware. I can't believe people are so excited for this game. It's the same graphics as 10 year old World of Warcraft with the same combat. The introductory quests seem completely unfinished (where do I go next?) and BORING. I only played for a couple of hours, and I felt like I'd played this game before.

Minus the graphics part (they are little better than WOW, but still pretty average), you could just as easily be talking about ESO.

But yeah, wildstar is terrible.

Except combat in ESO is nothing like combat in WoW. And ESO lacks the annoying "kill 10 monster" quests.

Yes it is, especially if you play a ranger. The combat is the worst part of the game IMO.

And instead of kill 10 monster quests, they have talk to 10 people or... put out 10 fires, or the riveting fetch quests.

Revolutionary stuff!!!

And now we know you've never played it.
