Ha! It's funny that you complain about people putting words in other's mouths, then you put words in mine!

Hardest part (thus far) has been the thug hidouts, where you have to use stealth and cunning to "knock down" 2 dudes in the midst of a bunch of other dudes.....can kill everyone except the 2 you have to interrogate. Is fun and damn hard!

I love those. The ones that frustrate the shit out of me are convoys. 20 guys shooting at you, and you can't shoot into the crowd for fear of killing civvies and accidentally killing the guy or guys you have to knock down. Then they call in backup who arrive behind your cover position. First one I did took me 2 hours to get right.

Otherwise, been playing for close to 20 hours so far. Still loving it, although I haven't even finished Act 1 yet. As far as story gripes, I think it's an OK story so far. Nothing better or worse than a big summer action movie.

Which, let's face it, AAA games tend to be. If you want awesome story telling, you're looking for the indie games thataway. Obviously there are exceptions.

The STEAM OS and controller are a cool idea for getting PC games off the desk and onto the couch, but having their own boxes? I know I am not the only one who is scratching my head, wondering who is going to buy such a thing. And everyone jumped on manufacturing them, but are now complaining about how low margin they are going to be. Yes, just like consoles.

Oh, Valve. Talk to NVidia and see how Shield is working out for them. It's a device built for no one.

Also, if you ban gunpowder, it doesn't somehow miraculously make all existing guns and ammo disappear

I'm not exactly sure how you enforce a ban on gunpowder to begin with. Physical force won't work because you're going to be outmatched unless you have exponentially greater numbers. Economic sanctions won't work because that will just force them to outright attack you.

That and the warping of physics so that we can swing Japanese anime inspired blades at each other is an instant turnoff.

4 minute vid with a traffic accident and garbage flying around. Compressed because PS4 will only export 720 and You Tube, well, is You Tube.

As far as some of the complaints I have read here:
Someone said that the blowing garbage and giant traffic pile-ups were missing. That's not true. I've seen some massive accidents (caused by me, hehe.) and witnessed all sorts of garbage flying about.

Trying to upload a 4 minute clip showing a wreck I caused and garbage right now.

This is why I bought it on PS4. Consistent framrate. Looks amazing.(Better that Infamous: Second Son, which looked really good.) Driving is great. Shooting is pretty good for controller. I put in 6.5 hours last night after getting it at Midnight, and I think it is great.

Keep in mind that I wasn't the biggest fan of GTA V. Couldn't finish the single player and played 1 night of multi before I sold it.

My only issue is being able to walk into a gun store in Chicago and purchase a fully automatic rifle. WTF? We can't even do that in North Carolina. I'm pretty sure Chicago is not going to allow that even in the near future.

As someone who bought Tomb Raider Definitive edition and has pre-ordered The Last of Us on PS4, I would so buy INfamous 1/2 remastered. Naughty Dog is already rumored to be working on Uncharted remasters. (Which I would also buy.) I wouldn't mind Beyond being redone either. Unfortunately my other wish would be Enslaved, and they wouldn't even make a sequel to that game, so I doubt a remaster is coming.

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.
Just wondering what your hiking and training skill levels are up to.

Hehe. My hiking skill is ok, but my training is is pretty high. My training could always be higher, but it averages about $100 a class.

Tomorrow I will be working on my fake hacking skills right after I level up my hurry up and wait skill.

I'm cheering Amazon on for this one. Ebooks should be substantially cheaper.

Yeah, it sucks for a while for customers wanting those books, but Hachette already got busted for price fixing. Fuck them. IN the end Amazon will win. They account for 60% of ALL book sales. Hachette has no choice but to capitulate, unless they fancy bankruptcy.

Remember when games and books were going to be cheaper when they didn't have to be physical products? Now they don't have to be physical, but they want you to pay every bit as much for them anyway.

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.
