Yeah but 1 vs how many?

I still think it's funny how opposite this console generation is compared to the last one, where Sony was the Asshole, but Microsoft had the RROD.

How is it opposite? Even if 10,000 PS4's are broken (which at this point I highly doubt there are or it would be a statistic on every single gaming site so far, at most estimated is like 1,000), that would be less than 1% failure rate.

Nowhere even close to the RROD's 15+%
or the PS3's 5%
or the Wii's 5%

In fact if they're anywhere close to 1% thats a fucking magnificent launch. There will always be hardware failures.

You may want to wait and see if Microsoft botched their manufacturing again and how many of their consoles have hardware failures tonight when the system actually launches and people start getting systems in their hot little hands before you start fanboying.

Yeah, and they produced Endless Space, so what's your point?

And Endless Space was an awful mess as well, so what is your point?
The combat system in the game is atrocious. It's a shitty roll the dice, rock paper scissors and hope you win combat system. There was no hint of skill to it at all. You could lose 2 ships against 1 equally classed ship because you guessed an ability wrong on one stage of the fight. That is just absolute piss poor programming. Why would I ever want to play a game with combat when the result is more or less random as to whether I win or not?

Sins Rebellion is still the standard by which I judge all present 4X games, and it will remain so until someone does it better. Hell even Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is a better 4X game than Endless Space.

Last halfway decent NFS was Hot Pursuit anyway. Most Wanted was shit, The Run was shit, I expect this one to be just as shit.

The Crew looks much better

Got mine at Midnight last night.
Turned it on, took maybe 5 or 6 minutes to get the day 1 patch done.
put in the Killzone disc. As soon as the disc was in it started installing.
Was playing within about 35 seconds or so.
The system is solid, I love it. Resogun and Contrast are both free for PS+ Members for the launch which I thought was cool.
Gonna go back to playing now.
Thanks for the update! How does Killzone look and play? I'll have to sign up for PS+ too after I get mine setup.

Well lets be fair.
It's not doing anything a PC hasn't been able to do for a year or two now.
Despite that, the game looks and plays fantastic. Solid 60FPS framerate. Much more colorful than past Killzone games, mostly because it takes place in Vekta instead of Helghan (You'll be familiar with the city if you've played Mercenary as well, also a fantastic game, and probably the best looking handheld game I've ever played)

I do have 2 major gripes with the game that weren't a problem in past Killzone's.
1. The objectives in the upper right, they used the absolute most awful font for possible, making it nearly impossible to read.

2. There is no way to display a waypoint on where to go next like other Killzone games had. I found myself at a deadend for 5 minutes at one point, till I figured out I could climb up a rock wall. Being not used to climbing in FPS games, this never even occured to me as an option.

After watching the trailer again, it seems to me like they pulled the A team off of WoW to work on whatever they have up their sleeve, and now we have the B team trying hard to keep WoW relevant.

Really? Heh, the Panda's didn't give you that feeling?

What characters are you referring to?

Everyone who was relevant? Last I read about the Pandaria storyline and this new assault on Orgimmar patch they had, Cairn was dead, Thrall was dead, Arthas/Lich King has been dead, Illidan has been dead. The only ones left are Proudmore and Sylvanas/Banshee Queen from the original games that anyone gives a shit about.

The fact of the matter is they've lost anyone interested in the original Warcraft RTS Lore at this point and time travel is a piss poor way of dealing with it. It's an incredibly trite and pathetic way to pull a mulligan.

Glad I got my 100 USD back.
WTf would anyone wanna play on a map with only 3-5 more infantry and rest afk, snipers, tanks/aero...in this century ??
We had 128 players like 20 years ago !
Come on, stop supporting these idiots making console games and declaring thats all a PC gamer should be happy with.

At least Planetside 2 is free and has thousands of players on same time.

Sorry, as someone who fully supported SOE and spent well over 200 dollars on Planetside 2 because I was a Planetside 1 player and believed in their vision... Planetside 2 is just garbage compared to Battlefield 4 gameplaywise.

SOE completely dropped the ball with what Planetside 2 should have been, we're going on 1 year into release and they still haven't gotten Hossin in as a continent, still haven't got battle islands in, still haven't gotten Continental Locks or Sanctuarys in, they still haven't even optimized the fucking game.

As someone who LOVED PLANETSIDE 2 TO DEATH, the game is fucking dead in the water until they pull their heads out of their asses. Planetside 2 has become nothing but a giant zerg with the same boring fights day in and day out on Indar, no one even utilizes Amerish, they still haven't even gotten lattice onto the freaking continent for christ sake. Fuck SOE. They're worthless and they squandered the opportunity to make the ultimate Battlefield killer by dragging their asses and not listening to PS1 players during the original beta.

Until then Battlefield 4 gives a much more fun experience, when played on hardcore, with no minimaps, no hud. It's realistic, it's actually squad based, and it's challenging, and you actually feel like you've accomplished something when you get a win or loss screen.

I just refuse to support a hidden subscription fee by charging $120.00 up front for a game we haven't seen, don't know what DLC is, a re-skinned game with some new gimmicks, and almost annual releases.

It is insulting, if they want to do this, they should Kickstart it.

I purchased the game like I usually do, around $48 mark with a discount coupon from one of the various online e-tailers. It's not a subscription, even if you add Premium together with the retail copy of BF4 it's right at the same price if you purchased BF2 and all the DLC for it.

I usually get hundreds of hours of gameplay out of Battlefield games, 28 hours on your BF3 profile I can see that it's not really your bag.

I was hoping for BF2143 myself, I doubt we'll see a military BF5 next year now that EA is working on the 'Star Wars' Battlefield game.

I haven't had it that long, and a lot of GREAT games have come out since. I had it before the humble bundle, but didnt' play it. I like the BF series I really do, I just won't reward them for what they have done.

I played BF2 competitively for money, we did very well and it was some of the best gaming I have ever done.....but they are a long ways from that.

They already butchered Battlefront...not sure what else they could do.

How did they butcher Battlefront? That wasn't DICE's game, the next Battlefront will be the first DICE Made Star Wars game. I for one am excited. Cause as good as BF4 is I can only imagine it with Star Wars shit.

I don't envy Dice's position, marketing bearing down on them to release before Call of Duty frenzy and right on top of two new consoles and a rather major release update to Windows 8.

Given the massive challenge to support the jigsaw-puzzle PC configurations alone it's amazing that the game works even as buggy as it is.

I guess I just got lucky with my PC puzzle pieces as I haven't experienced anything as frustrating inducing as what I've read on the forums. Not everyone is crashing, I saw someone using flare grenade type last night and it's suppose to unlock after you've made 3000 grenade kills or something.

I mostly played single player for the first couple of days and avoided the server crash issue for the most part, I do have to say that once again Dice doesn't really have a grasp on how to do a single player Battlefield game. It's far to few and between where you are given even a medium sized sandbox experience. They didn't clutter it with too many 'quicktime events' but way too many dialog cut scenes and various other bits where the game takes over your movement - even for extremely odd bits like climbing a small flight of stairs just so they can show off some more stylized animation of grabbing hand rails. So many recycled assets, perhaps an artifact of still designing around legacy consoles. A room full of Navy soldiers all with the same exact head model is rather sad.

The flare is definitely not 3000 grenade kills.
I know because I have it unlocked. It definitely took a lot of kills/assist points to unlock. But you finally get it only to realize it's absolutely useless. Oh boy, I can toss a flare to light up an area. What map is that useful on? None.

A lot of the crashing out in the first few days now, got server queues back in. Theres one glaring sound bug caused by Silenced QU88's but I'm sure that'll be fixed.

Despite the bugs? Having way too much fun in game to care, this is the game BF3 should have strived to be.

News Comments > Bungie on Lack of PC Destiny Plans
24. Re: Bungie on Lack of PC Destiny Plans Nov 4, 2013, 13:19 Trevellian
 
They could have, you know. Solved this problem by ditching the PS3/360 versions, and making it a true Next Gen title on PS4/X1/PC and only been working on 3 platforms all with the same basic architecture. How many PS3/360 copies do they really think they're going to sell with new consoles out? I sure as hell wouldn't play such a beautiful looking game on an old and busted system.

Someone at Bungie is a fucking bonehead as far as I'm concerned.

All I know is they added the Beta of Shadowplay.

And it works beautifully. Much more simple than Playclaw or Open Broadcast, much smaller file sizes than Fraps. No slowdown at all from what I've tried recording so far.

I thank them for this.

Every time I read mech game news, I keep hoping against hope for a singleplayer Mechwarrior game. Fuck Piranha, why didnt they just kickstart a single-player campaign. Fucking greedy fucks, the money is in F2P MMOS! YEAH LETS DO THAT!!

Because it's fucking great.

I'm sorry you don't like it but some of us do. I put a good 4-6 hours in a night killing little bitches in my AS7-D-DC or RVN-3L.

I don't need a fucking single player, Mechwarrior is about combat, you're not going to get the same intelligence or skill level of learning the little ins and outs of turning your mech away to absorb certain blows, or using certain cover or strategies, that you would out of an AI pilot. Simply put AI combat in a Mechwarrior game is BORING, and for the slow to react who want enemy mechs who will just walk out and pound on each other.

I'm perfectly happy with the 12 on 12 games. Keep your single player. If single player was the only reason you ever bought Mechwarrior games I don't see how you can even call yourself a real Battletech fan. There was no AI in P&P Battletech, it was all strategy vs strategy. Just like MWO is.

Does the STEAM description misleads the buyer somehow?
If that's the case, I would want a refund for sure.

Kinda does.

It never mentions that it's not a complete game, but in a post in the forum section the developers clearly state "The idea was then formed to make Dark Matter an episodic series, with episodes selling at a budget price of $14.99. Any further episodes would, however, need to be dependent on the success of the previous instalment. The first instalment is what has launched recently on Steam and is simply called Dark Matter."

This is the only mentioning that it's going to be a episodic game, and isn't found anywhere on the store page.

They also only posted and mentioned this AFTER people had bought the game. When people where already angry. It's an excuse and nothing more.

Same thing with StarDrive, release the game, it goes on sale, tons of people start buying it because it was supposed to eventually have Multiplayer in it etc. Then the Dev suddenly pretty much tells everyone to suck his testicle and they get what they bought and he's never adding Multi and he's moving on to making another game.

Like I said earlier on in the thread. Avoid anything published by Iceberg Interactive. Apparently they like to hire lazy and toxic Indie Dev's who don't ever plan on finishing their work.
