Ironically this the least appropriate way to go about it, people who backed early should be treated with more respect as it was a early promise.

So disclosure, I love vanilla (despite being a early mmo player and knowing it was doing nothing new; but doing almost everything better)

I hated TBC, Wrath, liked Cata (i am in the minority i guess), and didn't like panda-land.

All my old guildies and other gaming mates that have played down the years no matter what their expansion preference was are telling me this is the best expansion yet and i need to get my arse back in to game, given blizzard are handing out a free lvl 90, ill prolly i give it a go...

really if people are saying this 5 expansions down the line its a good achievement -wow might not be for everyone but even the most loyal players tend to get cynical this late in to a games life.

So really despite me not yet buying it (i prolly will on pay day), they have to be commended cause the community that plays the game is really enjoying it (server stability aside, and you cant do much about getting dossed constantly).

It's probably just a listing error but I think Forza would do really well on the PC. They're not my kind of games but racing enthusiasts are a pretty hardcore/spendy community on the PC platform.

Horizon isnt like forza motorsport, its more your need for speed kinda thing all be it with the forza engine/handling (with the sim options turned off).

Its also a wonderful game that's lots of fun.

personally id like to see all of microsofts 1st party titles (halo, gears & the forza franchise) on the PC.

I don't know if they've adjusted it but when I tried the beta the paywalls for this thing were absolutely obnoxious. They made a lot of noise about user creations but I couldn't even see others in beta without ponying up for the same things they did, it was a bizarre implementation.

That's weird.

Anyone else play around with this? Is it similar to Unity but with simpler tools?

give me what it is that your smoking

Yes thats right, he deserved abuse for asking a question...
no not like unity, more a toy box of components.

So I don't get the hate for Titanfall here, is it because it's Xbox One/PC exclusive?

Origin, here. I'd love to play the game.

Really? Origin is that different from Steam? I just leave Origin unstarted unless I want to play something on it. Then I start it up. No biggie.

Yeah, it is. Have you tried playing BF4? Web based browser POS, that requires plugins, doesn't work with 64 bit OS, unreliable joining, cumbersome interface, unreliable friends list...

As for TF, the beta was more than enough to realise it was just another lame modern FPS for the COD generation.

Dice make shitty quality (albeit fun) games ; news service.

All of our public Duel servers run in Classic mode.
Phew. Too bad I still enjoyed FFA

FFA still in decent shape it just escalates quicker now, and you don't start at spawn completely helpless. If anything it adds to the fun in a none serious mode.

Play in "Classic Duel" or the new "Console Duel".

I love how at least 2 people have explained about how this does not effect the pro scene or dualing period and its going unseen cause its better to troll....

Ok this is stupid. Haven't they considered what this is going to do to the pro scene? Yeah ok, you can play with a "classic" ruleset that doesn't change any of this, but now you are going to have a divided community. Them noobs that don't learn anything because they are playing on ezmode, and the hardcore pro scene.

The "pro Sceane" uses the 1 V 1 Dual gametype.

These changes have not effected that game type (at least with regards to the loadout setup); With regards to the strafe Jumping (hold Jump and forward change), that is still slower/less controll than well executed manual strafe jumps.

The effected games types are, FFA, TDM and CTF with regards to the weapon loadouts, and lets face it; those are not the game types the pro seane plays.

I played the changes this morning, i actually didnt mind the loadouts for the casual modes at all, better spawning with a few decent weapons and setting off with some teeth than spawning and getting insta-gibbed by the dude controling the BFG (all though i concede the games escalate a few moments quicker than they did previously).

With regards to item timers in game, it still rewards people who know proper spawn times; but helps those that don't. I don't think this is as bad as all the neckbeards are saying; and ive been playing quake since day1.

I am in the group that unfortunately think that crytek have yet to make a "really high quality game".

They've made some passable stuff, with merit here and there, but anything consistently good? nope.

SF4's netcode has been dog shit from day 1. Unlike every multiplayer game that has been released since Quakeworld, it doesn't use client-side prediction so you have to deal with input delay that varies with your ping. Amazing that they were able to make it even worse.

there are a bunch of roll back implementations; (GGPO being a good example), but its not really 100% the same i dont think, but its very close. SFiV's netcode hasnt been brilliant, but its more than serviceable and better than MOST fighters outside of ggpo games. If you want bad netcode look at a netherrealm title...

right now the problem isnt the general performance its the whole thing, its basically broken and inconsistent; when fight request match making is on it even breaks the single player... go figure...

they really can go to hell, its been broken since way before release, in fact the moment they changed us from GFWL to steam-works - the steam-works port is awful, GFWL was better in every-way; its annoying they have come out and said this now, when its been broken for literally weeks on end - ahh yes that's right, they have a product to sell now.........

come back gfwl all is forgiven.

And here is the annoying Rub, its steam-works now and the steam-works connectivity compared to the GFWL connectivity is terrible.

I own every version of SFiV, on both 360 and PC, really not sure ill pick this up on PC though; least not untill the steam-works version gets a LOT better.

Like I said in the final game not in the beta
http://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=2721

How will single player work? Will I need to connect to a server to play?
The galaxy for Elite: Dangerous is a shared universe maintained by a central server. All of the meta data for the galaxy is shared between players. This includes the galaxy itself as well as transient information like economies. The aim here is that a player's actions will influence the development of the galaxy, without necessarily having to play multiplayer.


The other important aspect for us is that we can seed the galaxy with events, often these events will be triggered by player actions. With a living breathing galaxy players can discover new and interesting things long after they have started playing.


Update! The above is the intended single player experience. However it will be possible to have a single player game without connecting to the galaxy server. You won't get the features of the evolving galaxy (although we will investigate minimising those differences) and you probably won't be able to sync between server and non-server (again we'll investigate).

My points is not about the single player, its about the ability for it to be online with friends and in a private group, that functionality launched yesterday.

How's the PvP work? Is it 100% voluntary or is it like EVE where you are at risk everywhere, just more risk in certain places (can I be suicide-ganked in a safe area)?
Yep just like EVE
The difference here is that you can play completely offline single player where everyone around you are npc. (in the final game I mean not in the beta)
You will still get ganked though, the npc pirates are pretty good. They will pull you out of supercruise and demand your cargo

as stated below, not the case (least i think ive not tried a private group yet).

I would say Elite's case of other players around you, as you fly/play, trumps blizzards need of an auction house.

I didn't even realize it was multiplayer (what I thought was mp only) until last week. I need to read up on the game. How's the PvP work? Is it 100% voluntary or is it like EVE where you are at risk everywhere, just more risk in certain places (can I be suicide-ganked in a safe area)?

The PvP is "forced" if you choose to play with randoms, the game has the concept of "groups" for instancing purposes, you can play in a public group (matched in instances with anyone and no rules), to friends groups, (you and your friends AND other people) and then private groups *(just you and your chosen friends) and no-one else, or solo. So its very flexible.

not sure this is the case, you have the "solo" option as of right now, it still needs the servers to be up tho.


Creston wrote on Jul 30, 2014, 11:14:
Awesome. Glad to see it's moving along at a steady pace.

I do wonder why they keep harping so much on how "big" the game is, though, as the 38000 light year figure is basically fud. The game, currently, is 55 star systems big. Whether those are 38 km apart or 38000 light years each is a moot point, since the only way to travel between them is to activate the hyperdrive.

Actually kinda true kinda not... in that if you chose to stay in super cruiser (light speed without a jump), you could point at a star leave your computer for a few years and it would get there....(the tech in super-cruise allows for that, even if real life game time wouldn't). there also is going to be 400k systems when done if i remember correctly :-) (but the core worlds are where most will happen, about 180 systems or so - just like elite).

contencious , but nice knowing how detailed it is.

been in beta a long time now, and i love it.
