Well quick look at the forums. over 1/2 of the editors are disabled right now. From what I can read it's because they say they're working in system, but the UI for using them isn't in place. Basically this is a put on wishlist and check in 6 months EA. If they've enabled the editors and have good updates then you might consider it... but with a lot of people that got the EA kinda upset at the way it's listed as working on the main page(guess they never did a EA game before) and not working in program" we will see how it progresses. Also for 40$ this seams like a too good to be true program.

Okay... don't the people that post the youtube videos get ALL the ad rev other then what youtube takes? Or is this nintendo saying that if you don't do the co sub thing that they'll shut down your channel/videos? If that's the case how is this pewdiepie guy able to post without signing up for their thing? I'm so confused as to this. I mean it just sounds like a lawsuit/supreme court case waiting to happen.

Someone correct me if i'm wrong but I thought the order was:
1)Channel posts video
2)Channel owner gets part of ad rev, youtube get's other part.
3)Repeat.

I love how the preorder bonus for GTA V is a game that I think 90% of the people buying GTA V would already have. Also from what I heard you can't gift the extra copy.

Game is dead unless you like Vanilla DM....
I get into Domination and Mosh Pit just fine, within seconds. But yes...all other modes besides TDM Dom and Mosh are empty for me. Kill Confirmed occasionally has players, too.

All this "game is dead" nonsense is simply nonsense.

I'm sorry, but when you can only get into 3 of the 10+ modes I consider the game dead. I wish I could play it more, had a blast the first week or two when there where matches... but I really don't like tdm. Also as a hardcore player it was dead from day 1.

News Comments > Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare "Reverse Boosting" Bans
11. Re: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Jan 19, 2015, 15:19 Linksil
 
Boosting would be faster then normal exp/rank gain. So i'd assume reverse boosting would be killing yourself so you go into a lower ranked game and then can dominate the less skilled players to get more exp faster(xp per kill+ bonus from streaks.) It prob has to do with how their ranking servers put people in match making.

News Comments > Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare "Reverse Boosting" Bans
9. Re: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Jan 19, 2015, 14:06 Linksil
 
Living in the bay area(CA) which i'm about 30 miles from the devs. The last few times I tried playing MP I couldn't find a match other then TDM and moss pit. As I don't really like these modes it get's kinda annoying. This isn't helped by still not showing how many people are playing in each game type. When I did get into games I had a blast and love the faster play style.

The dedicated servers they said we'ed have would fix 90% of the PC problems, but we won't be seeing them. It would take too much money/time to overhaul for the underplayed version of the game (mostly because of this lack of a promised feature)

SP I didn't have any problems with. Good graphics, normal load times covered by cutscenes, and action set pieces you come to expect from SP. While predictable, I enjoyed the story too.

I was wondering the same thing. I mean yea your down one player as a team... but most online matches in this game I have played, you are always "Down one" or up to 4 players. How is getting a ban from this and ruining the suicide players version of fun in the game different then someone that puts in 100,000 hours and comes in 1 shotting everyone on my team and ruining my exp in the game? It's impossible to ban someone for ruining fun when they find that fun themselves. Might as well ban everyone on the server at the time for having fun.

Disappointing, but they do apologize... will hopefully be great when it does get here.

If they really cared they'ed drop the price down to 30$ which was how much you can get the PS4/xbox one version for during the holidays.

All I know is I backed this way way way back at the start when they only had like .5mil and I still haven't even bothered to download any of these "modules". Also I never got any instructions on HOW to do it. Maybe it's because I don't pay attention to the game every day like others.

I'm sorry, I know it's usually against store rules if you work there. But if that kid was doing that in the store I worked at he would have been restrained WAY before he did that much damage. Mostly because I wouldn't want to have to clean it up and explain it to the upper management.

I may just pick up both FFXIII and XIII-2 on the PC when they're on sale, and play them on PC then. My PS3 is getting pretty long in the tooth.

Thanks all.

They are suppose to be patching in the graphics(res) options into the FF13 port sometime sooner then latter. I've already played through them on ps3... but both games were enjoyable enough that when it drops to a 5-10$ range it won't be a hard choice to pick up.

for some crazy reason, whenever i start a match its horribly ultra low fps (like 5-10) for about a minute or two.. after that its perfectly fine

not sure what the fuck its about, but its really damn annoying

im on a 970 so i know its not a gfx deficit

I'm on a Nvidia, and their drivers (for COD:AW) dropped that time to 15 seconds top. Use to be really bad on release.

I have not tried it lately, but I never had a load time issue in MP. Only one I ran into was in SP and that was the whole shader caching issue.

As for the game, I think the SP in AW was far better then any of the latest COD since 4. I didn't have a problem with the spawns and it didn't feel like I was just having wave after wave of guys thrown at me to increase diff, like the last few IW COD's. Playing through the last three IW COD's on max diff was spot on everything the earlier posters said they hate in games. Only real problem i've had with the release is the whole lack of dedicated servers(that they said they would have on release, I figured they would at least go the BF route in renting them out offical like). Which has led to a really hard time finding matches.

Titanfall is $5 on Origin.
Link?

It's 20$ for the game+season pass. So my question is: Is it worth it to buy it? and do you have to have a season pass to find games since it's online only.

That being said i'm really tempted to get evil within at the 20$ price.

Doesn't dedicated servers also usually means mod tools?
So people can play modded games on their private servers vs official?
I mean if there are mod tools that means $0 in DLC sales.
Horse armor and what not.

You can have dedicated servers without mod tools. If i'm remembering right the BF games are still on dedicated, you just have to rent them from "trusted" hosts vs hosting them yourself. While self hosting would be ideal, i'd take any type of run dedicated servers to ensure getting into a game vs their current matchmaking.
