News Comments > DICE: BF4 Launch "Absolutely" Damaged Player Trust
14. Re: DICE: BF4 Launch Oct 8, 2014, 10:25 Verno
 
There are still hackers but you don't see them as often, probably because BF4 isn't as popular as it was at launch. They tightened up the net code a lot so you aren't getting stabbed while sitting inside a tank at your spawn anymore. I don't find it to be a big issue or at least not as much as it used to be, after launch it was obnoxious for awhile but most active servers have admins and etc these days. So if that's all that's stopping you from trying it out then I would say you can safely give it a shot.

They've been pretty good about supporting BF4 so far but to be fair they kinda had to. BC2 had great Rush maps for sure, it was a blast.

It was even worse in the console world, a few buddies had PS4 copies that were literally unplayable for the better part of three weeks. Whole game modes didn't work, it managed to actually crash the console a few times and their awful SP campaign wouldn't even save properly.

I like BF games because there's nothing else out there like them but EA just needs to hold these back longer even if it means missing on their 2 year cycles.

After watching a good 20 minutes or so from an hour long gameplay w/commentary video that IGN had posted, I was able to see this myself rather quickly. It looked highly repetitive of go here, kill him, choose a new target, go kill him, etc. I know there is a lot of fluff in between but that's the idea.

Yep, I didn't last more than a few hours. It was fun but got old quickly. Ironically I'm having more fun with Alien: Isolation which is arguably more repetitive but still remaining enjoyable.

I'm hardly generalizing. I gave a specific example using screen size and distance.

I should have been more clear, I meant more the general forum canard that "most people cant see the difference" since it seemed like thats where you were going with it. I find every setup is so different and there are more things to consider than just the resolution alone. I do most of my gaming on the PC so I'm not up in arms about Ubisoft framelocking one of their AC games but I can see why people would care, particularly when there is so little that separates the consoles as it is.

I highly doubt I would notice the difference between 900p and 1080p on a TV, but I am pretty sure I would notice the difference between 60 and 30fps.

Oh absolutely. Crappy AA is another one that gets me.

To your second question, telling between 900p and 1080p is going to depend on the size of your TV and how far you are from it. If you've got a relatively modest sized TV, say under 50 inches, and it's 10 feet from where you're sitting, you're not going to be able to tell the difference aside from whatever placebo effect you get from the knowledge that it's 1080p and not 900.

I find this to be a bit of a fallacy because there are too many factors at play to generalize it and I think its important to have some perspective here, that downsize represents nearly 30% of the visual data onscreen. There's other things to consider too when comparing platforms too, what forms of AA were used and so on. Framerate is another thing. I generally want the best experience possible from any platform I'm playing and the thought that one is being arbitrarily held back is kind of stupid, especially when its doubling the sales of the other. Microsofts advertising deal with Ubisoft for the AC games this year makes this even murkier.

The interesting thing about two sides needing to come together on #Gamergate is...they don't need to.

Yeah because mutual understanding and civil communication never solved anything.

To be fair to Julio, it's not like we've been getting any in the first place. I don't really need them to engage me in anything, they've done enough damage.

They can only ruin any sort of Twin Peaks sequel or continuation. Do not give in to their nonsense, Verno!

Any series/show/movie that gets a continuation 20+ years later = absolutely terrible, this is a Universal Constant.

I don't know man, Lynch might be just weird enough to pull it off

The 3DS one is surprisingly good, I think Nintendo almost shot themselves in the foot with it even. It's sold like 3 million copies already, I hope it doesn't hurt the Wii U.

I don't know if they've adjusted it but when I tried the beta the paywalls for this thing were absolutely obnoxious. They made a lot of noise about user creations but I couldn't even see others in beta without ponying up for the same things they did, it was a bizarre implementation.

Yep it's a good game. 1.5hrs in, good atmosphere, good "shock moments" just like in the first Dead Space, good SE and music to each scene. Nice crafting system. I'm quite happy with it, hard is actually hard no hand-holding either. Mileage may vary, but over all I'd put it in 9/10 material. IGN just being whiners over it. I haven't run across any bugs perse either.

Awesome thanks for the info, looking forward to it.

Fair enough then, though I'm still not convinced there's a genuine media conspiracy or campaign here.

People tend to use the word conspiracy because its loaded and implies something. I don't think there was a "conspiracy", there was certainly a concerted effort to censor people who disagreed with them though. It's well covered online and I literally witnessed it taking place on Twitter, Reddit and several gaming websites, the few that actually reported on it. It's also no coincidence that press coverage of everything has been ridiculous to say the least and that they all went to press almost simultaneously with the same type of crap (later revealed to be coming from a mailing list they were all on!). So yeah, maybe not a "conspiracy" but calling it "activism" seems too tame for what happened.

Nothing will get resolved because you can't have meaningful discussion with the people doing that kind of thing, they weren't interested in it to begin with. Agree with me or else isn't a discussion and that's why they're getting so much shit from everyone now. They misrepresented "issues", engaged in censorship, colluded to some extent and have the nerve to talk down to other people about morals.

So yeah they can get lost, let's get back to gaming which is way more progressive a hobby in terms of social issues than it gets credit for.

On the other hand as a result of coin miners, the price of the 780 Ti cards might plummet. If it's miners driving the prices up, the 780 Ti could end up cheaper than the 970. Given how much more power efficient the 900 series is than the 700 series, any miners using GPUs will need one, but power is not much of a concern to gamers.

I doubt it, retailers don't tend to keep a lot of videocard inventory on hand because of how volatile the market is. There will be some discounts to get rid of stock but don't expect deep discounts on older cards.

Except I snagged a 780 for under $300 recently (New, ASUS Direct CUII OC).. The 780Ti already was around $430 new as of a week ago.

Foot in mouth then!

Maybe, but that doesn't mean it should work both ways. It shouldn't work at all. You lose credibility when you imply otherwise.

I'll let ASeven worry about his own credibility, in any case in the context of your original quote I reiterate that one group has engaged in actual censorship here and the other has not. So to me its not about two groups yelling about censorship, its about one group actually censoring another and getting appropriately taken to task for it. That's amongst other things obviously.

He's not really in a position to, either. The phrasing implied he would if he could.

That's theoretical, there has been actual censorship from the SJWs already which is what I was referring to.

Also lol, Social Justice Warrior Crusaders! Where's my tabard, it'll have a picture of a woman being oppressed by a gamer.

Morality Brigade works better IMO.
