Looks like it really is time to upgrade my QX6700, but damn that chip has done me proud. Might look into getting a second 680 GTX as well. Really excited for this game.

I had an Q6600 until I upgraded to an Phenom II x6.. what an insanely bad decision that was in retro-perspective... still it serves me well right now (the Q6600 is still on my secondary PC, all that needs right now, direly that is, is a SSD), but the CPU and platform as a whole (mobo/chipset) is showing it's age. Next upgrade is gonna be Nvidia and Intel all the way. But I am waiting till dx12 hits now.... if I upgrade my GPU (670GTX) it's going to be to make VR fluid and smooth. And we'll see what's required for that.

I can't even put into words how sad it makes me that AMD has NOTHING to compete against the I7

Someone get this and tell me how it is.

Yes please.

I couldn't get into CiM2 because the cities felt so generic (a real step backwards from the first one). This seems like something that might fix that problem.

This doesn't change anything related to those complaints All you get is new graphics, game is otherwise the same.

Meh, if you're wanting to get on Hearthstone and nothing else, you're opting in to B.net. Now forcing WoW and Diablo players to use B.net, THAT is more like what happened with Steam and CS. At least you can have it act as a plain old launcher like I do, and it's admittedly a bit more convenient because you can save your login info and it automatically puts that in for whatever game you start up, rather than type in your password every time.

Back when D3 launched, you couldn't even copy and paste a password into the field.. increasing the security of... no one.

Yeah - it's basically like cable companies owning the highways, and you get to choose between walking and using a car.
But don't say we should regulate them, because you'd be a communist then. This is the free market at work, man. Why do you hate capitalism?

Because those cable providers are not in fact, part of a free market... Infrastructure, like power cables, roads, rails, rivers, cables of any kind, need to be state owned or strictly regulated, or there is absolutely 0 free market possible. The one who lays the cables is ALREADY THE BIGGEST, competitors can't even ENTER a competition unless they got insanely huge in some other way first.

Free market is not that first one to enter a market can dead-lock an entire country for eternity. There is no capitalism in that, capitalism wants competition.

So in fact, cable monopolies are communist. Especially since large amounts of these cables were laid by state or gov money in some way or another.

Cable is usually owned by a specific company. Here I got choice between DSL (limited by max line speed) and Cable (1 company)

So I have free choice, but really I only have choice between slow-as-shit internet for cheap (360€), or paying 500€ a year for cable Internet that's slightly faster (and that's the cheapest cable offering, faster internet costs 700€ a year )

Or basically, there is choice, but it sure as hell ain't priced competitively when there isn't any competition. And cable particularly has this problem.

It really has nothing to do with this game in particular. It just seems like news about every big game on Blues gets shit on by a few regulars who like to regurgitate the same lame jokes over and over. Usually directed at specific Publishers/Developers, without actually ever trying a game. This place used to be fun, is my point.

Just ignore them. Waxing nostalgia about the old days doesn't do anything, I've been reading a long time before commenting and it wasn't any better back then either. I think you will be hard pressed to find a website any different, it's the nature of public commentary. I would never let someone else ruin my enjoyment of something I like, whether it's a website or a video game.

I want some of the shit everyone in this reply thread was smoking, because apparently we bashed Titanfall in this topic..... Which is pretty funny... because I read every post and don't see anyone doing that. Even Cutter was mildly friendly ,p

So don't mind me interfering in your dream world ... but we are talking about something that isn't even related to Titanfall....it's about review scores for MP games in general...

Will this have official servers? Or is it all peer hosted?

Half assed port, or developed with PC in mind?

Well
This says there are dedicated servers, but not player controlled ones

So it'd not be real servers. More like.. you randomly connect to some random server, maybe?

Doesn't fit with what I experienced in the beta though

Where the hell did "and people don't tend to click through to reviews without scores." come from?

That's a weird way to think imho.

What's the main way people get to reviews these days?
Metacritic.

What won't list your review without a number it can attach?
Metacritic.

The other way people tend to get to reviews is the list of reviews on a site, and even then they tend to click through and read outliers.
I don't have any quotes for it, but ask any one working at one of the review sites and they'll tell you that, when they put a review up without a quantifiable score, the click throughs are reduced. There's a reason Endgadget, which got rid of numbers in an attempt to stop people from directly comparing and fighting hundreths of a point, has brought them back.

I think most don't even get beyond metacritic and youtube let's plays anymore... gaming news sites are about as useless as they come, reviews might as well be on someones personal blogs for all the relevance they carry. Bluesnews being different of course, because it's a gaming news aggregation site... the best there is.

But I am going to be honest with you, I haven't read an actual review of a game in months. It's much quicker to just look for a let's play with a current date.

Anyone who is putting up a final review with a score for a multiplayer game before the public is able to access the servers should be ashamed. It's as if they learned nothing from SimCity and Battlefield 4. Controlled review environments do not represent the final environment. Giant Bomb has put a review up but without a score and have reserved the right to alter it accordingly after the public release before locking it as final. Anyone who has done otherwise shouldn't be trusted.

Well, just a quick look at the sites listed here tell you everything there is to know about the review quality.... reviewing a MP game before full release is a folly anyway, and it's extra bullshit to give it a score when you can't do proper MP games to assert the situation to begin with.

Except PC Gamer, which does not list a score. Which is the only valid way to review a MP only game before release.

They say 250k euro budget and they had 4 years to deliver the product, how many people were working on this for 4 years? I hope they had other jobs because 250k budget for number of people for 4 years be very low to survive on, not to mention actually develop a game.

If you don't have an office, and rather work from home, 250k buys you at least 5 guys for 4 years if you are paying them WELL, if it's east European rates, you can probably hire 20 people with that ;p Their motivation would be pretty dang terrible though.

As usual, these projects fail because of mismanagement.

That Portal 2 posts is complete crap

Not Portal 2 is not compatible with SELinux

Rather, not supported OS with a not supported security feature are NOT supported by Portal 2 (Guess why they said what OS they support)

Valve said what OS to use, not using it is not their problem.

I'll never understand these bad design decisions like the windows. Similar with the animations played after capturing ships in Ass Creed 4. Once, ok. Every frickin' time? Come on! At least let the player have the option to disable it.


I think it's to pad the game length primarily... but I'd really want to know why they actually did that... stuff like that can be found in many games (heck, Sots2 is ruined by something like that) and it's blatantly obvious most of the time to anyone playing....

It's quite a waste, but if you have a floor dogs or animals in general walk on, you should not take any risks imo.

Actually, I have no idea if you can wash them... can you? How do coffee beans react to cold water?

Speaking as your neighbor to the west, its much worse here and the few people here who are concerned about privacy and law and how the public is informed look up to you guys. Just look at the difference between your pirate party and ours. so I think your being a bit harsh, of course it can be better but believe me it can be a lot lot worse

Well the pirate party here is a big joke to the actual netizens for various reasons, but mainly because they claim they are super democratic, yet fail to understand that a party can't be run by majority votes over every, single, issue.

I give you that it's worse in other nations, but it's not good here either. Germany especially should be far more conscious when it comes to espionage alá Stasi.

Ubisoft censored South Park on it's own volition, the rating agency in Germany would have passed the FULL GAME (without swastikas, because.. well, that's a law) and given it a 18+ rating. They censored certain scenes now and still got a 18+ rating (no shit ,p)

So basically, Ubisoft fucked up. They wanted to reach a higher market reach with this censorship, nobody forced them to do it.

Because the dirty whore from Germany decided she likes to be watched. (It's a funny)

Sadly it's not far from the truth.... As a German I am absolutely disgraced and ashamed by my fellow Germans, as-well as the Governments response to this.

90% in this country, literally do not give a fuck. Because they are too stupid, seriously. They do not, comprehend, the NSA leaks, at all. They do not understand the consequences and ramifications. Even if you explain them they openly tell you "I have nothing to hide" and then 2 weeks later it turns out they downloaded child-porn.

Yes, we have fucking retards like that.

God, I hate, this, country. But I don't other countries are much better.

Maybe they are too high I guess.... I just expect more from games coming out nowadays.
