Honestly the world would be a better place had OpenGL taken off in the 90s as the defacto standard. But as it is now, its not nor will it be.
It did take off in the 90's, it then committed suicide in the '00's, and went on life support. And the main reason is? Developers pissing up wind, and features being stuck in committee's.

You should be forced to do what your ancestors did...pray the problem away. See how that works out.
Since most anti-vaxxers aren't religious can't see how that works out at all. Though most of them do follow some form of zealotry, usually in the form of homeopathy.

How about AK47 mode? You know, like when you absolutely, positively have to kill every motherfucker in the room.
Pretty sure that was in all the game so far. Might be wrong, since I'm standing in a virtual pile of corpses listening to a madman rant about Comstock, but...who knows. Maybe I could avoid killing all those guys to get to him in the first place...

Lot of changes, I went back to one of my first builds when I hit 60 on easy which was a mini-archon build. Started right up in hell and am face rolling everything in my path. Probably helps I have 114k dps after the changes through.

Unfortunately, this beta test won't have those changes in place, but I hear combat is much improved with them.
That's nice and all, but for a MMO rolling out the door it's the word of mouth stuff that will end up making or breaking sales for it.

Seems to have graphic corruption in firefox on pages that use ajax to auto-update content. Not sure on games yet.

Games seem to be okie. STO/Thief/Dishonored/Skyrim/Simcity and Deadspace 1,2,3 are good as well picked up some smoothness in STO and Dishonored.

So yeah guys, my first 20mins of gameplay? Enjoying it quite a bit. It's more or less true to the game, and there's no shortage of lewts to grab but some of it's tricky. Only playing it on medium atm, do a true playthrough when I'm done the first run. Turning off contextual "help" and prompts makes it more challenging as well.

To anyone who doesn't like the game? That's okay, I'm enjoying it. I'll get my $34 out of it without a doubt.

Oh and if you're looking for a x/10 rating? 20mins in, I'd give it a solid 7.8-8.3/10 give or take. I don't mind the voice acting at all, and find the interaction so far decent.

First major map, the one that people were posting images about earlier? Not really holding true. I've so far found 4 alternate paths compared to the one taken in the video.

Oh and "non-exclusive fullscreen" listed as "exclusive fullscreen" works beautifully in win8.1x64 for alt-tabbing with zero issues, lag, slowdown/crashes or other issues. I'd be interested to hear if the same holds true in win7.

And if anyone wants to see the main map area in chapter 1 here it is.

I don't care at all about the new Thief. I had ZERO expectations. Previously I had as much interest in this game as I had for DX:HR. In the end the new Deus Ex was good and this new Thief is bad. Watching those who preordered and invested so much time believing every canned preview get screwed over because of their own inability to exercise patience amuses me greatly.
If you pop back in time via the archives and look at the stuff before the leaked version of DX:HR, you'll see plenty of similar comments too: DX:HR is gonna suck, it eats kittens, makes puppies chew glass, takes your S/O on dates, and so on.

And...then the leak hit and people were oozing over it. So yeah...even the 'review hints' were the same as this. At the end of the day it's whether or not you enjoy it.

Publishers care very much.
That doesn't make it a good metric for measuring anything. It's like asking Intel or AMD if their processors can make you shoot lightening out of your eyes.

As an aside, can someone tell me when we started lending weight to Metacritic around here?
Never. Any long time poster knows that metacritic is nothing but a epeen stroking contest and angst city much like tumblr.

Wait a tick, aren't the the same reviewers who repeatedly toss loving praise on every COD/COD Clone, and rehash with a rewrite? I don't really have faith in the game reviews for a reason.

Clever Caviar wrote on Feb 23, 2014, 15:26:

but... it isn't. Like, it's not even remotely akin to what GLide was... in the slightest. Plus, also, hasn't AMD said there's nothing stopping Nvidia shipping Mantle enable devices/drivers?
In fact, they've said it'll work just fine on Nvidia cards. If anything is closer to Glide it's Physx, after all nvidia even set their drivers to disable physx if you've got anything but a nvidia card installed and you need to hack the drivers to make it work.

My concern is that if the developers didn't implement this correctly and/or too much, it will break continuity in player immersive-ness. And potentially be annoying too.

Oh I agree, I guess we'll see in a few days. Interestingly enough there's 60+ people playing it now on Steam too bad they're not leaking anything on it.

Oh, and there was a QTE in the livestream too. I thought they removed those, but the guy needed to TAP SQUARE to move a wooden beam that was blocking his path.
I wouldn't really call that QTE, as compared to other's like the fist-fighting in Witcher2 or the stuff in other various games. I'd probably call it closer to environment interaction, but feel free to disagree.
