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?

Why? Just play the damn game! It was already a great movie with gameplay bits in between the set pieces.

Yep, was certainly more entertaining to watch a skilled player play this. A good movie it was.

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.

Worse is that this is in-game graphics, and it looks horrible and really really barren and bland...

You're not being serious, though, right? If you are, I think your standards are too high.

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

Your fault He didn't seem hostile at all...

Either way, yeah, the game has a super weird load lag issue when it sits on anything that's not a decent SSD. For giggles I moved the game to my storage HDD and its nigh unplayable. Lags of up to half a second every few minutes.

They offer the Crusader in the character select which is surprising considering the expansion doesn't land til the 25th, seems almost a bit misleading to have an "Upgrade" option sitting there in place of the ok button. Just in case anyone else thought if they upgraded now they could play one, you can't

Yeah, that's messed up, lol. I fired up the game after having pre-ordered RoS, patching up and upgrading to the B.net launcher... Saw the Crusader there and got excited for a second, but nope. That along with already seeing all the other options and skills that will be activated by the expansion in three weeks, it's just a little cruel.

You have to admit it's great in-game advertising though Hard to resist the expansion... when you have fun and see all this stuff that would be even more fun.

For home, if you have any pc sense you don't even need real-time protection anymore. But if you think you do, then why pay for something you can get for free?

Viruses aren't the problem with my family members anymore (not that it can't happen but it's very rare) but it's the ninja installs of other apps when they download apps from the net. Non wanted search apps or lying apps that tell you something is wrong and you need to buy something, hijacking software if anything is the main issue for users now.

And that software can disable protection on a PC easily.... snakeoil vendors all of them ;p

Yep. I mention them if you download something off the net that you went in search of, when installing really take note of those popups. No sometimes means yes. Sometimes you think you are installing what you want but in small writing it's another app. It's the arm-pit of the computer world, nothing but deception and this is even from fairly trusted download sites. Your probably like me, I'll do extra searching to find a location that downloads just the app I want, it now is a pain sometimes, but man the tricks they try to pull on install.

The adobe flash updates are also always fun. Can't say how often I had to come to a PC because application was there suddenly that nobody admitted to installing. Flash installs mcafee if you don't uncheck it...a classic.

what you say there is actually a HUGE problem. How do you guarantee authenticity of an application you downloaded? Because most developers are complete retards. MD5 hashes MEAN JACK SHIT. Anyone hacking a site can change those hashes, and a trojaned download would pass all checks. (That one is a classic, ever tried downloading PUTTY ? no https / unprotected md5 hashes, public PGP key is not listed in online databases (so it can't be validated).... PUTTY ! If even the developer of such an elementary application knows jack shit about protection things look really bad.

That's why open source is not better either. Someone is gonna distribute compiled packages, there is no way to authenticate these. No way to tell if something was changed or not. No way to even download most VITAL applications with proper https connection and some way to confirm application authenticity...

I think this is going to become a way bigger issue as time progresses. You think checkboxes are bad? Wait till you no longer can be sure the application you downloaded is the legit application. Even if it's from the apparent official site (in case of Putty, the entire infrastructure is 1 huge clusterfuck)
