News Comments > Path of Exile Status, Packs, and Patch
7. Re: Path of Exile Status, Packs, and Patch Dec 3, 2013, 11:47 Verno
 
I haven't played the latest patch yet but I had a good enough time with the game though I don't see myself playing it long term. It's sort of like Guild Wars 2 for me, I pop in once in awhile and check out whats changed then go back to other things. I hope they can grow their studio and we get a better engine next time, the game is high on depth and value but could really use a facelift, some better hit feedback and animation.

One thing I liked in this was the build defining uniques with realistic tradeoffs though, I don't know how Diablo 3 fucked that up so badly by comparison.

Is this shit for real? (warning: loud profanity)



This is old news, people were posting videos of it the day of the PS4 launch. It's an NBA2k14 thing, I've had it call fouls when I do the same thing because I left the headset plugged in.

What is the point of not launching the PS4 globally?
Maybe not on the same day but within a week at least. Manufacturing restrictions, or translating the manual or what is the reason for this delay?

They knew they were going to sell over a million in North America alone based on preorders so they had to shift priority. Japan is sewn up because the Japanese don't like the Xbox brand so they knew they could launch later there. Europe is also traditionally more Sony centric so they waited a bit while production continued ramping up.

I don't define my friends by their choice of plastic living room boxes

Besides it's neat to see the other side of things. Every time I play stuff at his place I'm reminded of the things the PS4 does well and the things it needs to improve on.

Verno you sound like you speak from experience. You didnt buy the Xbone did you??

I bought a PS4, not an Xbone. I did flip a Day One edition to some dude for free monies though I've used the Xbone pretty extensively at a friends place though and what I've seen its a design by committee mess.

There are some truly baffling design decisions in the Xbox One. The party chat defaulting to off unless the party leader enables it being one. The way party invites work sucks now too. The Achievements app takes too long to load, you need to go past challenges and then achievements themselves have dumb screenshots attached which take time to load. You can only view 5-6 of them at a time too which is puzzling. The whole interface is slow and clunky, old standbys like using the guide button to see players you met or to find old party invites are gone. I don't know how they went from design superiority to this mess but man it sucks. I like the home screen itself at a glance until you actually start using it. Games take forever to install for no apparent reason and the game DVR has a very limited buffer. How is this thing MORE expensive than the PS4? It's pretty ridiculous.

I wouldn't say victim so much as deserving recipient.

Yep he did it to himself by continually trying to derail topics across the forums and ignoring repeated warnings. I can't say I care that he's gone either, the forums have improved considerably even in the short term.

News Comments > PC Battlefield 4 Patch This Week
27. Re: PC Battlefield 4 Patch This Week Dec 2, 2013, 13:58 Verno
 
I have no plans to get Premium, the DLC was very hit and mess in BF3 so I'd rather pick and choose. There are few waits for any servers so the queue jumping thing is pointless and I don't care about boosts or battlepacks.

BF4 is really buggy, the PC version is less fucked than the PS4 version but man there are still some real head scratchers. Hit registration is still a big problem and I have to agree with 4D about the dodgy lateral movement.

I've been getting hammered on my football picks lately but finally had a good week. Too bad the Bills and Browns disappointed so much or I would have done great. I hope the Saints take the Seahawks tonight, I know the Hawks are favored but they're my least favorite team and a big chunk of their record is beating up on crappy teams.

Believe me, I used both but having to have a giant lamp on is even WORSE for you than white letters on black BG.

Yeah no sorry I don't buy it after a lot of first hand issues and don't see an equivalent reading experience on an ereader vs a tablet. My brain can't really distinguish e-ink vs books whereas I get eye strain, headaches, problems sleeping and other issues if I use an LCD based reader late at night. Read however you want but it remains a non-issue for me, ereader all the way.

Ugh, I can't stand reading books on tablets (including the Kindle Fire). The brightness of the display is terrible late at night, keeps me awake later on and messes with melatonin production. I much prefer reading on non-LCD readers, tablets are fine for other things.

Nintendo didn't ship a lot of stock for 3D World according to many retailers, I think they're just being realistic about what the base is like at this point.

They really need to do better next time, it's fine to have gimmicks for the casual crowd but the core market also needs competent hardware that can run modern software. They desperately need an online presence too.

Criminals don't follow laws, honestly the current assault on the 2nd amendment makes me sick to my stomach.

People kill people, the gun is a inanimate object. Knives kill people, cars kill people, lets start banning everything that has ever killed someone.

You could be way less obvious with this rereg, same phrases and syntax even. Very low effort.

Bing shares the top global searches of 2013.

"How to remove Bing"

"Set Google as homepage instead of Bing"

"Why does Bing Desktop keep reappearing after being hidden in Windows Update?"

"Can't I use Google on the Xbox?"
