Does anyone have a hard time loading video sift? IE or Chrome, extensions or not, it seems to only load a page 25% of the time on the initial click. I can refresh multiple times, and I might get lucky and have it load.

.82 cents Canadian? Can't pass that up, I got more than that in CSGO cases.

Well, a huge portion of the game world is clearly there for multiplayer. I never had a reason to visit the wind farm in single player, but then they have you race jets at insanely low altitude through it in multi.

There was one mission in single player on PC where you had to fly through the wind farm with choppers.

A bounty for Trevor is in there as well I believe.

It shouldn't matter, but had your purchased the taxi company yet?

It didn't work before, and when I bought it they still wouldn't. So every cab driver I seen on ps3 got executed, the racist pricks.

On PC I haven't bought it yet, and they answer second ring. Mind you, I did play ps3 the first week, so it may have been a bug.

are you people not aware of taxis in GTA? you can fast travel anywhere, even works during most missions

i always use that shit

On ps3, as Franklin (The black guy) taxis wouldn't even answer their phone. Seriously it just rang forever. Damn racists.

Fixed on ps4 though, riding in somebody elses death trap! Awesome when the taxi is faster vs supercars in real time.

Been enjoying this for the past few days, fairly pretty, decent sound and good gameplay. Terrible teammates can ruin your day, but overall it is very fun. Very satisfying to watch your initial salvo hit a fast moving target at 10kms.

Feels like a WoT grind... get tier 2-3 in several games, and slows down. But with the quality of teammates it is a good thing, that way they learn (or quit) and stop dragging you down (not that I'm good or anything) as players get better in higher tiers.

When the statement was made it was accurate. Release dates are targets, not factual statements. Delays happen.

I hope if the content is lacking on release compared to full games the excuse won't be it was only a target to make the first episode larger than other full games, sorry it was only 2.5 hours long, we promise the next will be. ("Let's just ignore the most recent information from CIG that the first "episode" of Squadron 42 is going to be what most studios release as a full retail title in playable content. *eyeroll*" - from Zor, which my reply was based off.)

I mean, 3drealms had a whole bunch of reasons for pushing Duke Nukem Forever back. Delays happen.

I forgot about this game, this kerfuffle reminded me and got me to download, play and enjoy it. I am sure I will buy a pack on sale / premium down the road as well.

And, um, what P2W are you referring to? It's a skill based game, not an RPG loot/gear/stats based game. Nor is there anything like a War Thunder/World of Tanks ammo shop.

Don't know if you noticed, but a lot of stuff they say turns out to be false. Like release dates. Just saying.

It honestly doesn't even feel like an alpha, it is more polished than many "complete" games are. They are fully developing little chunks of content at a time, then refining balance and smaller bugs as they go. It's a point of pride for them that they do NOT want anyone playing a new map until they've got it completely fleshed out and ready.

Yes it is very well done for what it is. Everything is as solid or more than what you would expect from a AAA release. Now just to wait on the maps/weapons/perks to be added.

Sadly the result may be, let's just not release on pc at all because it's too easy for people to get refunds.

This is my huge fear, and i'm fucking stunned hardly anyone seems to realize this. I'd rather like it to be like the old days, one major fuck up port here and there.. another game needing a big patch every now and then.. It sucked but hey, worth the sacrifice of being a PC gamer.

With this refund shit, every impatient fucking moron can just press the refund button any time and my god will it hurt developers more and more before the gaming community will see the fruits of it -- if they ever will and not get completely abandoned first.

I dunno, with publicly traded companies NOT porting to PC could be a lawsuit waiting to happen. Proven profitable, if they refuse to port their shareholders could sue for reduced profit. It may not be AS profitable with a proper port, but it is still profitable.

A new season pass for a game with 600 average players, and 1,600 peak players? It came out in February and is basically dead. I'm playing Insurgency currently, it's 2 years old, made by an indie group and has almost 4x the active players.

Maybe they are bringing in enough money to cover bills, but seriously how are they continuing with this pricing model?

GMG is the only place I see Battlefield on sale. I think they had 15-20% off Hardline on release.

As long as they don't release 3 separate versions and fracture the community like they did before it could be fun.

210 degree FOV, Sign me up! How could you have screen door effect at that resolution?

You'll have to go where the game support is though, I'm going to bet Oculus wins that battle.

I think even Steam is late to the party to grab attention... most following VR acts, short of something nobody else has, from this point will just fall into obscurity or at best secure a niche part of the market.

Rock solid? Hardly. If it wasn't for the fact that they allow modding of their games they'd have been toast long ago. Skyrim became a great game - in spite of what they released - all thanks to the modders. FO3 same thing. Bethsoft can't write or do quest development for shit. And since they've become a console first company it got even worse in terms of UI, graphics, etc. What they do is provide a fairly decent, if limited, sandbox to play in. They leave the details up to everyone else. I personally thought Dishonored was pretty meh. I'll likely pick this one up, but not until it hits the bargain bin.

And with paid mods on the horizon...

Works for me if I join a friends game. Just a 'clicker' game. Dull but gives you the odd card.

And it seems to freeze a lot.

$2404 in value, $780 spent. Not bad.

Pricing for demand is simple economics...

I don't think it's that cut and dry when dealing with an infinite supply of digital goods. Digital also means sales now costs them 0 so it's not even possible to make a loss at any price.

Also if interest temporarily surges in an old digital product, I'm not convinced cranking up the price (or simply avoiding a sale price) will make any more money compared to selling it cheap. Especially when you consider that getting it to more people could create more fans for the upcoming release.

Uh, the product still cost something to make. Digital or not. It's very easy to make a loss.
