Yeah, finally got my Shadowrun swag! And BF4 started working on my desktop!

Sorry to hear about your back, Blue. Back stuff sucks. I have been in physical therapy more times than I can count now for my back.

Who exactly is the target demographic for this? No way it'll be priced within the console range.

The Alienware crowd maybe?

Don't look at me, I have Alienwares that already play well with STEAM. Why would I buy a STEAM OS PC that can't run my other programs as well?

The controller? Maybe. Looks cool.

I see users in game complaining of performance, even with similar specs to me. I hit recommended (2gb vid card instead of 3gb, 16gb ram instead of 8) with new Nvidia drivers and performance is crisp. A little slower after the building comes down and it gets foggy in the middle.

I don't even have the newest drivers on my laptop and I run on Ultra. I haven't checked the fps, but it seems smooth. No stuttering or choppy video.

when i was a kid i remember eating an apple while taking a dump. i tried to flush the apple (barely eaten). the toilet never flushed again.

Nothing like the smell of human excrement to give man a real appetite, am I right?



Yuck.

Anyone else get an error when trying to launch the beta saying, you don't have access yet?

Prepare for massive bugs. I've been in since day 1 because I have BF3 premium. My work laptop logs in and plays no problems. My desktop at home won't even launch BF4, I get stuck at the blue ribbon.

Also awesome, my squad launched a boat onto a rooftop and were sniping with mini-guns yesterday. How did that boat get on one of the tallest buildings on the map? No clue. We were sailing it around the harbor and hit something and WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! We thought we were going to die, but no, we landed on a rooftop and lived.

Tanks hitting the road barricades tend to fly higher than choppers too.

Installing toilets is actually pretty easy. I had never done it before and I replaced both toilets in our house. No floods, no leaks. Of course, it requires bolt cutters to cut down the bolts after you install so you can place the nice plastic caps over them.

4 years later my bolts are still bare and uncut. Which reminds me, I need to buy bolt cutters.

After all the horror stories, I haven't even attempted to play.

Are you guys actually successfully getting online? My one buddy has only gotten to the race tutorial and it crapped out.

Last night was a blast....tonight, can't even get on....

Oh good, so it's not just me. Again.

I got in log enough to sell all shares to buy PIS. Already made 500k off of 2M.

I managed to watch the intro, and then it just sat at the race, supposedly connecting me to other players for 15 minutes. Thankfully I had my Vita out and was playing LotR while I waited.

Also just want to mention for those of you who like gaming keyboards:

I've had a Merc Stealth by Ideazon for going on 8 years. I got it to review when I worked for MMORPG.com. I LOVE the gaming keys on this keyboard. Long story short, Ideazon was purchased by Steelseries, Steelseries pretty much stopped making all the Ideazon products (Which makes no sense), and my Merc Stealth - while still completely functional - looks pretty gnarly. Keys have all the coating rubbed off, crumbs in the key cracks, etc. (And I try to keep it as clean as possible!)

I have ordered 2 of these that were made by Steelseries from Amazon. (Steelseries made them for a while before discontinuing them) BOTH Steelseries ones have been brand new and defective right out of the box. The first one had the space bar snapped right off the board. I mean the steel springs were pulled through the plastic retaining clips. The second one the whole top row of F keys and the volume do not work.

I've also had World of Warcraft Mice from Steelseries that seem to crap out very quickly for as expensive as they are. I would now avoid this company if I were you.

Could not connect last night. After a night of not being able to get BF4 to work from home (worked fine on my laptop at work), finding out my new keyboard is broken (again! this is the 2nd one), and finding that my Jeep - which I paid $1000 to repair - drives worse than it did before, I had no patience for GTA Online not working.

Damn dude. Sending some good vibes your way....

I keep waiting for my gun to randomly explode in my holster and injure my man parts or something. Either that or I am due to win the lotto soon. Or have someone try to rob my store again. I think I need to run to the liquor store next door to get something to put in my coffee today.

I should mention when I say drives worse, I mean the damn Jeep wanders all over the lane and takes some muscle to control. Also, a rotor is clearly messed up, as stepping on the brakes causes the wheel and the whole jeep to pulsate. This mechanic is an idiot, however. For $1000 the only improvement was the 2 new rear tires.

I seriously thought I was going to get pulled over by the two state troopers I passed on the highway this morning.

BF4 is just fucked now anyway. Tons of people can't even join servers. Origin locks up, BF doesn't start, lots of fun! Oh, and GTA V online doesn't work for me either! Fuck, it's been such a fun day!

Seems pretty cool from the few minutes I've had to sit with it at work. Maybe it's because I am on my laptop, but graphically it doesn't seem much different. The map sure is more open, though. You can enter a lot more of the buildings.

All the cheating in BF3 has soured my previous love for the series. Logged into it for the first time in over a year this week. I spawned inside a closed room and got sniped through the wall by a guy across the map. Fun.

So you played on a Unmoderated Metro Conquest 64 player server... right?
That's like going into a seedy strip club and complaining about the scantily clad women.

More like having sex with a toothless meth-addict hooker and then being surprised that you got herpes.

About the cheaters, they are in every game but haven't been a major for myself in bf3 simply because I play on servers with active admins.. They aren't hard to find, and once you have a bunch on your favorites list you're set - plus a fun side effect of this is you get to know a bunch of players also playing on the same servers which creates some good teamwork as well as good rivalries!

I added you on Origin

Agent.X7 wrote on Sep 27, 2013, 14:35:

Seven Star Gaming plans on having at least one BF4 server.

The BF3 servers I play on have almost no cheater issues. If someone is really cheating, they get banned very quickly. Of course, there are always people accusing everyone of cheating.

Agent I couldn't find you on Origin. What's your username?


Um....*realizes he has no idea. Realizes he cannot actually log into Origin through origin because he doesn't know. Has to start BF3 to check.*

What games do you play in which there are magically no cheaters?

Not what I'm arguing, but a game with server side hit detection instead of easily hackable client side would be an improvement.

This is like the old MS vs Mac OS vs Linux argument. MS has more viruses! Yup, because they have the lion's share of the market.

BF3/CoD/CS, etc. have more cheaters because they are wildly popular games. Again, though, I see people everyday try to join games with hacks enabled and PB bans them before they get to play. The few I have seen in the last year actually playing were caught quickly by players or admins and either vote banned or banned by the admins. If the server you play on does not have a mechanism to enable the banning of cheaters, of course you are going to have a shit time.
