So you refuse to play games where you have to play as a pre designed character?
Because you're going to miss out on a ton of great games.
The Last of Us, Tomb Raider, Dreamfall. You would refuse to play all of these since you cant create your own character?

Be fair dude. He is talking about CRPGs. I too have a preference for cRPGs where you create your own character, your own story. Im digging the Witcher3, but one of the main reasons why I hated W1 is because it felt like a glorified action beat-em up platformer turned 3d, and I never liked those much. Thankfully the W3 is much more fleshed out, but yeah I get where the dude is coming from.

CDPR's next game (the Cyberpunk game) will have even more scope and multiple characters/classes to chose from.

News Comments > NVIDIA Launches GTX 980ti; New Drivers; & GSYNC Features

For some reason disabling Antialiasing in the Witcher3 has removed all artifacting and flickering and has had a HUGE impact on the performance. I can't say that I notice any jaggy edges. Not that it ran badly before, but now it't like locked at 60 FPS all the time. 970 GTX @ 1080, everything on Ultra (except foliage which is on High), Vsyinc on.

Turning Vsyinc off had no noticable impact on performance, it did however cause terrible screen tearing.

Im also getting a 'syndicate' vibe here, which is a good thing. XCOM (with its expansion) was one of the better reboots I have played, so I have high hopes for this. Also cool that they went with a role reversal, although to be completely honest I would have loved a straight "Terror from the Deep" remake. Still remains my favorite Xcom game to date.

Also, how the fuck does this thread only have 15 replies? Common it's Xcom!!!

*sigh*

Well Shit!

I just dropped $750 AUD on an overclocked GTX980 about 10 days ago.
I new something like this would happen. Any 6gb model would have been better, but I couldn't quite justify the price on a Titan X and settled for 4gb instead.

Fuck me and my first world problems right.

Lemme add some salt to that wound

The 980Ti is reportedly only a few percent slower than the Titan, like 3-4% slower.

Great article. On Forbes of all places. People who think that the Witcher3 is sexist are either A) delusional or B) serving their own self-interest. Satisfyingly ironic, since so many quests in the Witcher deal with people who only help themselves.

I wonder if Sarkesian and that other guy even know that the game is based on a best selling series of short stories and novels. My guess is they know full well and frankly, just dont give a damn as long as their interests are served.

I hope they fix the pop-ins that they kinda messed up in patch 1.04.

The support they are doing for this game is damn amazing.

I had to turn of AA for 1.04. to run stable and without weird artefacts and shimmering effects. Also I swear when I read some of these bullet points I want to punch faces they make me so angry. For example:

"Performance improvements during 'some' cutscenes." They listed this with every single patch and so far its bullshit. I hope they do eventually fix this, but putting this in every single patch note without actualy fixing anything insults everyone's intelligence.

Notice the use of the word SOME. Last time it was BOAT cutscenes. Arrrghh..

Waay too expensive. But then again, when there is no competition in the high end market....

I really hope AMD pulls something out of its sleeve and sooner rather than later.

It's all bullshit, at least in my opinion. SJW, Gamergater, Atheist+ (thanks for the explanation Space Captain) etc. etc. etc.

These are all groups which have become synonyms for assholes. Why not label someone an asshole and be done with it, since you can pretty much put anyone who ever had an opinion on something or other in one of those groups?

I for one consider myself a fairly progressive person, but I have opinions on matters which could very well put me in all three of these groups, depending on what we are talking about. Does this mean I am an uber asshole, or does that mean that it's so much easier to label someone a "SJW" or a "Gamergater" or whatever, than it is to actively engage with said person in a discussion of whatever matter at hand, or to simply agree to disagree and respect each other's opinion?

Yeah some groups are deserving of the hate they recieve, like for example neo-nazis, or those IS fanatics in Syria and Iraq, but simply hating someone for having an opinion that differs from your own is bigotry, pure and simple. So we invent 'labels' and 'groups' to distance ourselves from the simple fact that we are prejudiced assholes. Every last hypocritical one of us.

I can't even keep up with all the labels being applied to people anymore. It makes me not want to discuss anything with anyone because someone will feel the need to lump me in with one group or another. I can't dislike one group's message, and totally disagree with another. Apparently I'm supposed to pick a side, and I don't want to.

Welcome to a classic human dilemma. Humanity is largely unable to deal with people individually, and must resort to labeling and grouping people(and then feeling hostile or at least disparaging to other groups). We all do it to a certain extent, all we can do is try to recognize it and overcome it.

It's particularly upsetting to me that 'atheist' is getting misused so much these days, or at least tied to some assholery online.

Anyway, don't feel like you are the only one; most people really don't fit easy into any simple classification/group.

its called "territorial behavior".. its common in all the high primate species

youve got families, clans, tribes, nations, cultures, etc.

and then you go to war, to dominate

It's also dehumanising. It's so much easier to HATE a group than it is to hate a person.

That was a really good Game of Thrones episode. Probably the best one of the season, If I may say!

It's only being shown today, here in my parts, but Im going to avoid the spoilery news sites today. The show has progressed further than the books this season. At least in one story line.

Witcher, game still crashes after 15 minutes of play? It minimizes to the desktop, I can still get sound, etc. but can't bring the game back up....:(
I suspect it might have something to do with the Microsoft C++ Redistributable x64 that I've had to re-install 3 times just to get the game to actually launch for me?

Win 7 x64
970 4GB
12GB RAM
blah, blah ,blah.
This was happening to me (much the same system), and running the game in fullscreen rather than borderless window seems to have fixed it. CDPR says borderless is more stable, but it's been the opposite for me. Haven't had a single minimize-to-desktop since I changed to fullscreen.

This. This is how I fixed my 'alt-tabs' to desktop. Also, it's good to see W3 top the Steam lists 2nd week in a row. I hope CDPR makes a shitload of money on it. They deserve it, unlike those has-beens at Bioware....

Maverick: I feel the Need...The need for Speed!

Watching Top Gun on re-runs is about the closest I will ever get to playing another NFS game in my life.

The only reason why this franchise even exists anymore is because of the equally stupid Fast & Furious movie franchise....

I agree the combat is nothing spectacular, and yes sometimes you can defeat smaller groups of (human) enemies by spamming.

However you cant SPAM your way to the end of the game, which is what he keeps claiming. It's rubbish.

There's no such thing as an objective opinion, opinions are inherently biased. He's giving his opinion, if you don't like it then don't watch his videos. He's an entertainer, not a professional reviewer so adjust your expectations accordingly and stop being upset because some random guy doesn't like your favorite game. Who cares if he likes it? How does it affect your life? I swear some people here have the sensitivity of 13 year old girls, lashing out at the first sign that 'someone doesn't like my thingie on the internet!!!'

I respect his opinion that he doesn't like the game. No problem with that. What I have no respect for is lies and dishonesty, I draw the line there, especially when it serves someone's direct financial interest i.e. controversy for views.

Have you played the game Redmask?

Mac shows that you can definitely button mash at the max difficulty. https://youtu.be/kkFqn1TMeH4?t=4m50s

even better: https://youtu.be/kkFqn1TMeH4?t=7m41s

He calls that button mashing? Going one vs one vs heavily armored opponents and carefuly timing your attacks and parries is button mashing? What a load of bullshit. Again. It's clear that he is backpedalling into a pit dug by his own hand.
