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.

And since I just snagged it from Gamefly, apparently preloads are up now too.

I am very excited. Tuesday can't get here soon enough!
$33.75 on Gamefly, hmm considering it
At $34 if I get more than 3 hours of gameplay it's already paid for itself.

I'm not sure what would be so god damn difficult for some asshole at nvidia or some even bigger asshole at Microsoft to look into and FIX this on the SOFTWARE END, but no, I'm stuck here solving 21st century problems with tiny pieces of tape.
Fixing faulty hardware, via software? Uh...it's an HDMI cable, buy a new one. They're not expensive. It's not a microprocessor with bad microcode.

So you are telling me it would take me many hundreds (thousands?) of hours to get a character capable of what I see in this video... Not that this is bad, just trying to get an idea of the scale of time required.
If you're looking to hit top end? Yeah. Probably took me 40 hours or so to hit the 100k mark in my DPS grind gear.

Haha -- Okay, I never played D3, so I gotta ask. Is that normal to see a character using a skill that does damage hits in the millions?
Average player? Nope. Highly tweaked with best gear possible? Yep. My inferno mage is at ~86k DPS at the moment, and I can get up near 100k easily enough without trying when I swap out some of my health for DPS gear.

Here's the D3 unbuffed DPS stats

I should toss in, that at 86k DPS I can clear inferno without a problem on my wizard. My first clear of it, I was at 28k and that was like pulling teeth on bosses.

Rule on mushrooms: If you don't know wtf it is, don't eat it. Following that, puffballs are awesome especially fried in butter. It's finding them that's the pita.

Yawn. Another super corrupt snidely whiplash evil bad guy.

Why not break the trend and make him a genuinely good person trying to do a needed job in a city overrun with crime? Don't team up with Garrett, don't have a sudden twist, but have the balls to introduce a guy who is clearly an antagonist but is not a villain.
$20 today's kids don't know who Sindely Whiplash it anyway. :p Which is why they can get away with it.

But see that would make sense, then again it would probably fly over the heads of the "core demographic" who've never read anything more difficult than green eggs and ham.

The problem with the internet is simple. People clamoring online, or over the phone, or twitter or whatever doesnt really hold a candle to going outside and actually you know....protesting.
Give it 10-15 years and it'll flip. And the people going outside will be "weird, strange and perverse nutbags." While the people connected/jacked-in/etc are doing more for *insert whatever.*

eRe4s3r wrote on Feb 8, 2014, 02:54:

They should also show the version number of the patch straight in the download window. Steam has gotten so confusing to use, you never know what patch you are on. And this is a real problem when you want to use mods. And Workshop specifically should NOT auto update mods. Broken about a dozen CIV 5 games for me with that nonsense....

Drop it into the suggestions forum. If enough people support it, it'll eventually make it into a beta build for testing. Or you can join the steam beta and toss your suggestions in there as well, since developers do post replies.

You can't say under NDA? WTF? Because everyone knows Mr. Tom Newmaxx of 54 Elm Street in Peoria, IL?
Because no one likes to be sued for breaching it. Well if you're in the beta feel free to dump all the pics and stuff you want. Useful tip though, they've got your username plastered over everything so you can't.

This was by the way major news here in Germany... and the diplomatic response was pretty damn angry. Maybe the US should hire some people who aren't total dipshits into their diplomatic positions....
You're acting surprised at this? Canada acted the same way under the Liberals to the US, the US acted the same way under Obama to the Conservatives in power. Diplomatic responses were also pretty damned angry, and then it dropped off the front page. Though under the Liberals they ran with the anti-US sentiment for over 5 years on it.

Heh, 16bit support... the memories....
Along with dip switches, and looking up IRQ pin layouts too. I don't miss those days, of having to modify hardware physically to set 220(or 240-60):IRQ3/5/7/9 on the card.
