Would have liked to see Wolfenstein up there longer. It's an extremely well done game. Evident that a lot of passion went into it's production.

That's because it's Fucking Awesome. If Beth doesn't let Machine Games do a sequel, I'm going to be seriously pissed...
Yeah dude, wicked game. Right up my alley

Steam let out Wolfenstein for 20 bucks and I picked it up on a whim. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit.
Awesome game. The gunplay is exactly how I thought it would be: very tangible, unlike other games (see: COD).
The graphics are pretty fantastic as well, especially smoke and particle effects.

And you're right about Mordor. I never liked any of the AC games because of the controls, but I love SoM's fluidity

I'm kind of intrigued by Spintires. It looks difficult, but in a good way.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is $3.39. Absolute peanuts and well worth even the original price.

Great little game. Beautiful to look at, too

Bf4 Premium is also 50% off.

Wonder if you get a discount if you already have the digital deluxe version

There is so much to do in it that I feel overwhelmed at times.
Maybe it's just because I'm getting older, but this kinda thing really turns me off.
I'd rather have a more focused, compact experience than have too many things to do.
I don't mean COD levels of linearity, but I'd rather only have 3 or so objectives to accomplish at one time, including the main story mission.

Obviously it's good to have a lot of content, and many players (especially younger) love dumping hours upon hours into a game... but I just can't do it anymore

I was as well! I'd ignored it/writted it off until the press demo "leaked". (Still love to know if they did that themselves, or who did, as it was a brilliant marketing tool.)
I only played it earlier this year after I bought it at the Xmas sale.
Don't know why I ignored it for so long but I'm very happy I played it.
There's not many games I initially thought I wouldn't enjoy but absolutely loved, and this is one of em

those bird things were annoying as shit. I was minding my own business scouting an outpost thing to try and take out silently when I hear something behind me. I turn around and it's some of those bird things charging at me. They nearly killed me and blew my stealth. After that I went out of my way to run over or kill every one I saw.
In this one you've got eagles that come out of nowhere and sink their talons into your face.
While playing on my buddy's system for maybe an hour there were 4 bird attacks and 2 snake attacks... along with a rhino, leopards, a bear, wolves, etc

Was a tad excessive.

Game sure is fun, though.

The same stuff and same that goes on sale in the fall is repeated during the winter sale, and they'll probably do the card crap during the winter sale again. You might as well wait and spend your money then so you can sell the cards to make a little back.
I vaguely remember this card thing they had going.
You get cards for each purchase, but you're saying you can sell them back or soemthing?

Actually, you would be wrong Creston, the camera was locked to the char. you did not have to hold down the mouse button to look around. That is what most are complaining about, myself included.
That does sound like a pretty glaring design flaw. Hard to simply claim ignorance on it, too

And don't equate 3 words in my post with the entire meaning of my post.

If you are planning on complaining about the return on your kickstarter investment, just don't use it in the first place. I think that's a pretty obvious take-away from this story.
Fair enough

Stop. Using. Kickstarter.
Why? Because one prominent project goes belly up? I backed several games on Kickstarter which turned out very, VERY fine.
Yeah, simply saying to stop using Kickstarter is ludicrous. Plenty of great projects have come from Kickstarter, as well as some stinkers.

a publisher for a developer could just as easily change features on a game similar to what Frontier have done.

If you want to donate money to a company to fund them, that's OK... but understand what you are doing. You are donating money to them, giving it to them completely risk and return free... and hoping for the best.

Sure, you can look at it in a negative light, but please don't equate that to "You shouldn't ever use Kickstarter"

Well, that's kind of BS. Bigger, more advanced games the stretch the limits are going to run worse. Unity should have been delayed, but it is technically impressive and a much more difficult game to run. Crowds like this have never been seen before, and I'm guessing they rely on pretty advanced parallelism to make it work - one of the hardest kinds of programming to optimize.
I'm not disagreeing with the fact that it's a far harder game to optimize due to a lot of factors.
My point is that if your game is running horribly on a wide variety of systems (consoles included), you need to turn it down a notch.
Sure, crowds like that have never been seen before, and maybe it's too early to have them, judging by the performance this game is apparently putting out.

If you can't have your game run at a steady 30 fps on the newest consoles, you're definitely not optimizing enough.

COD is a linear snooze fest with 2001 gameplay and ok at best graphics. ACU is a next gen open world with some unique features and graphics that push the enveloppe.

Do what you want with ACU, but don't encourage COD!
I see your point - and I'm not a big fan of COD - but regardless of the scope and size of a game, it shouldn't run like shit... which is how AC Unity runs. It's unacceptable for any type of game.

Did you edit both the config.cfg and config_mp.cfg to change these to from 140 default to zero:

seta cl_pitchspeed "0"
seta cl_yawspeed "0"

This solved all the terrible jerky mouse movement for me.
Thanks buddy, I'll try it out
