I'm not going to buy in early, but I'm also not wishing for failure, either. If the game comes out, and they manage to pull it off, I'll buy it.

So they've coupled pay-to-win with a slot machine?

If you've ever opened a battlepack you'd know how laughable calling it "pay to win" is.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth Trailer

I came back to BF4 after not playing for most of April, and I'm pleasantly surprised by how stable the client now is. I've played for hours and haven't had the game crash at all. If only it had shipped in this state...

That being said, I've been having a great time with it now that it's stable. The netcode definitely needs some work, but ppl playing on the test servers have reported largely positive things about it, so I'm optimistic.

It got a very rocky start, but I think I'm starting to really like it. Looking forward to the new xpack for it.

I'm so glad I decided to wait on this one. I'm sorry but it seems like fucking amateur hour over there.

Hey EA is just a small 'mom and pop' outfit without the resources for something like this, cut them some slack.

When did the term "netcode" become fodder for debate? I remember Epic Games referring to netcode back in the Unreal days, so it's not like a new term that non-technical people came up with.

They should really get the performance issues worked out before releasing another map with water in it.

I like how people are already whining about a fragmented community for a game that hasn't even started real development yet, over mods that don't even exist, and when charging money is completely optional.

Personally I thought the news sounds great, and I'm eager to see what gets made with it.

Let's cut the bullshit on "VR".

When it comes, it will be a hardware piece no different than your monitor. It's not going to be some "platform" like a game console. It's just a display unit, nothing more.

I'm still not certain VR is going to take of in the short-term, as there are still major hurdles to overcome in regards to input. It's hard to sell something as "virtual reality" when you still control things with a keyboard and mouse.

Its also kind of sad that Zenimax owns both id, and Bethsoft. id I couldnt care less about, since the original people have pretty much left it a rotting corpse of a company. Bethsoft I kind of care about as they still produce nice TES games, hopefully they will go on doing so, but after TESO dies in a few months or so I wouldnt be in the least surprised if the honchos running the show at ZeniMax decide to pull the plug on yet another great franchise.

The other day it sort of hit me that Zenimax now owns: Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, and Fallout.

As the Dude would say, "That's a bummer, man."

We live in a world where Zenimax/Bethesda owns Doom, Quake, Wolfenstein, Fallout, and are claiming they own the work John Carmack has done while working on VR tech for Facebook.

Have a nice day.

Yet another reason id Software never should have sold out to Zenimax in the first place.

As much as I'd like be against what Zenimax is doing here, it sure sounds like legally they have the upper hand here. The fact that Luckey is on record as acknowledging their ownership of Carmack's work is a silver bullet for Zenimax.

You can pretty much forget about them ever doing an open source release of Tech5.

Well after civilization falls, you have to have some way to transfer your funds to Lord Humungus to keep his army at bay for another week.

Call me crazy but I'd rather them put that "an irresponsible amount" of money into the damned game, and not some trinket.

They claimed to fix SLI support but it is still broken.

One month in, and no SLI support on a Source engine game. Not impressed.

Clearly if you don't have 15 dollars on a card you don't deserve to play the game you just paid 60 for. You're obviously broke, a loser, and need to get a job.

Or maybe you use pre-paid cards so companies can't double bill your actual bank account.

I'm not going to lie, they won me over with that 2.0 patch. The game is truly a lot of fun now, and I don't regret getting the expansion at all. Adventure mode is a lot of fun.

I never thought I'd be saying that, either. This is a rare case where I think Blizzard got the message, and listened to the fans. The game feels like it was made by people that actually like the Diablo games now.

Leno had better ratings than Letterman, and Justin Beiber sells more albums than Tool.

Just because you win the pop contest, doesn't mean you're the best.
