News Comments > More Battlefield 4 Issues

The sad thing is, this game is fucking amazing, IF the stars are aligned and you have a decent connection to a decent server and nothing crashes. Shooting choppers and jets down with a tank is still hilarious, as is mowing down infantry trying to run up and C4 my tank. I've been using the attack jet more as well, it's stupidly fun even with my mouse/keyboard setup and no separate sensitivity settings.

I'm starting to get the classic "Your Connection to EA Online was lost" issue again, which is extremely aggravating. If that happens, of course you are immediately disconnected from the actual game, which can crash/disconnect you on its own with ease.

Oh well, holiday sales are here again; I gave in and bought Far Cry 3 for like 7.49 or whatever, could be time to play some single player FPS action.

I think that's the first humble bundle that I've owned every single game, and loved every single game. Quite a deal.

Same, except I'm missing Sanctum. Easily one of the best Humble Bundles.

Wow, downloaded the patch, Repaired my Install, and the servers are basically unplayable today. Not sure if it's my ISP, or some issue with BF4's servers, but it's about as choppy, if not worse than it was the first week of release.

Silk Road looks to be a potentially amazing map, at least if pilots shoot down that damned bomber.

PoE is a pretty good ARPG. It doesn't really start falling apart until high levels, when content starts to become extremely repetitive, and 5 or 6 link drops (the latter of which apparently has an astronomically low chance of dropping) are nowhere to be found. HP/damage starts to become skewed as well once you are into merciless and Dropped Maps, limiting builds in my opinion.

Crafting is entirely too random, if you can even call it crafting and not just straight gambling. Too many of the devs were D2JSP people, that's all there is to it.

As others have said, desync issues because of their client/server model are REALLY annoying, and make the game unplayable(at least for me) at certain times of day.


Still, it's free to play, and they will be adding the 4th act eventually. A few tweaks here and there, and it'll be an excellent game.

Well shit, that makes me feel better that it was actually a bug, explains a lot of bullshit BF4 deaths.

Hooray, for these fixes in general actually, and good choice removing the EMP blur, although honestly I was getting used to it.

Of course, I just picked up a bunch of games from the Steam sales; I've already put like 10 hours into Infested Planet... might be a little break from BF4 for me.

I'm greatly looking forward to the day these "social" media things die off.

Do young people today seriously think posting videos of yourself online, doing ANYTHING, is a good idea? Ugh.

What a shame, easily 90% of this stuff is Xbox/PS3 related.

However I will consider picking up Heart of the Swarm if the price is right, and it may be finally time to get The Last of Us, if it's below the 9.99 mark.

There is no chance of a "Last of Us" pc version, right? As far as I know it's PS3 exclusive?

Hopefully this means they're close to getting Conquest mode working on the PS4 ....

Holy shit, CONQUEST mode hasn't been working on the PS4!? That's terrible!

The PC version seems to slowly be getting patched into stability, not counting a few long term balance issues. I actually played through a complete cycle of all the maps the other day, it was glorious. First time I'd ever seen Dawnbreaker, and first time I ever FINISHED a round of Shanghai(high crash rate).

The attack jet is so great, I may actually deviate from my usual tank/apc/MAA/scout helo whoring to get some more flight time in that thing. Stealth jet is laughable, however.

Pistol scope, eh? It'll probably be reasonably useful, the pistols are pretty badass in BF4.

Now if only they could fix the FOV zooming issues, the sound issues on Golmud Railway, etc. this game would be great.

PoE has "pvp," sorta. It's pretty terrible right now. Server instability/desync issues make PoE unplayable even in solo games quite often, far more than D3 for me at least. It would have been amazing to have a moddable, offline version of PoE.

Everything else has been said to death about the positives and negatives of PoE/D3, I just hope the Grim Dawn developers are taking a good look at each game and learning from other peoples' mistakes.

vote for Grim Dawn 2014, for your ARPG fix!

Previews? I think these are all reviews at this point, correct?

Although Battlefield 4 seems like it's still in Beta, so...

Excellent. No reason not to have any of these indie games on gog.com, really. I can't believe most of them stick to just Steam... mind boggling.

Strange comment, given your moniker.

"MoreLuckThanSkill" is just to make people feel better when they lose, it's all skill.

X-Com Enemy Within in a few minutes(? Midnight EST right?), hopefully it's nowhere near as buggy as BF4 has been.

Interesting, especially since it'll be free. I'll try FTL again when this is released.

I played FTL for a bit, but it just isn't a "fun" game to me. It reminds me a lot of Oregon Trail; depressing, somewhat dependent on random events, and ultimately if you win you don't feel a great sense of satisfaction, just a flat sense of recognition of some lucky rolls. Some of the best sessions, gameplay wise by me, still resulted in losses because of some random nonsense. Conversely I won a few times after making horrible mistakes. Aggravating.

At least for me.

Battletoads + Half Life 2 = I was expecting something amazing, and instead nostalgia just took a crowbar to the face. Letdown.

Did something happen to Quake 3 or something? Why would anyone play this crippled version (Quake Live) when Q3 is still around, with more content And apparently more OS support? Wasn't the Quake 3 source released awhile back?

I did not understand the Quake LIVE experiment at all.

Somehow you guys find a way to criticize this man?

It's more like constructive criticism, I literally fear for his health. Same way I look at any morbidly obese person. I am sure that sounds dickish, but I used to be one of those guys about 10 years ago, until I got off my ass and started exercising regularly.

Especially since this guy is obviously a great human being; that rescue literally brought a tear to my eye, and the human race is probably going to lose this man to a heart attack/stroke etc. in 5-10 years.

I really should get around to buying this, it sounds like there is a ton of content. The free weekend was pretty interesting, at least from a casual single player perspective for me. However, a grand prize of a 3D printed guitar? Lol!

Why not just say: "here is 20 cents worth of resin, marked up to thousands of dollars because 3D printing is all the rage right now."

You can't instakill choppers or jets with tank shells anymore because the shots do percentage damage to airborne vehicles, it was one of the lamer beta changes that convinced me that the game wasn't for me. One of my favorite things in the previous game was nailing idiots in the sky with the tank. The ammo system for tanks was too limiting and needed to be adjusted too. Vehicles just needed no health regen for balance purposes, the ammo system was unnecessary.

Well, I mentioned transport choppers in particular, because tank shells definitely 1 shot kill Attack and Scout choppers, and possibly the ground attack jet. I know I've 1-shotted the aforementioned choppers, but no telling if the jet was damaged. I'll try out the Test Range at some point, I guess, to get a better idea of straight damage numbers.

The clip system for the tanks is still annoying as hell, but I think I've gotten used to it, mostly. Autoloader helps, as does holding fire until you have a REALLY good angle. It still seems like overkill to me as well, but I am going to keep playing. It's still a ton of fun in the tanks.

*EDIT* Grammar/typo

I watched this video off of Videosift earlier, I swear I was verklempt as a young Dick Vermeil winning an NFL game.

Excellent work by the bus driver, but I also kept thinking, this man seriously needs to lose some weight, that is NOT healthy.
