I bought this. I played 5 hours of sp and 41 minutes of mp. I think a double XP weekend is just what is necessary to bring me back!

You know what I do with these trailers? I spend about 3 seconds looking at the youtube play bar at the bottom of the video to see if it contains any gameplay. And then I close it down.


Hahaha.. that's exactly what I did just before scrolling down to read the comments.

It is out, though I'm only a matter of minutes in to the gameplay.

Here's a german video that shows many glaring differences from the trailers to release version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIS5WHx4xDk

Holy hell. So much of the atmosphere that caught my imagination is gone. This is when graphics really matter to me. When the image on screen captures and thrusts me into complete immersion. The difference is astounding juxtaposed. Thanks for sharing, Mordecai...I think..

** Edit **

Before, it looked like a new, all encompassing experience with
a very unique, full character.

Now it looks like GTA V: The Witcher

I don't think the Steam screenshots are misrepresentative. The 2013 E3 trailer was just next-level "ingame" almost cg/cinematic looking awesomeness. The fire, the weather effects, the level of texture detail was incredible.

I still expect the game will be great...just not quite what was initially advertised. I think the main issue I have is knowing the E3 level beauty was workable, but got tanked due to next-gen consoles not being all that next-gen.

Wow. Thanks for that jacobvandy. Disappointing, but pretty clear.

I remember first seeing that 2013 E3 trailer and going "oh man, the new wave is here...I'm gonna have to build a whole new system upon release." Turns out, I should be just fine with a new gtx980, the same i72600k I've had for 4 years and 24 gb RAM. Unfortunately, the awe I was expecting to experience won't likely be present. I'm sure I'll still enjoy the game, though.

There has been no indication that they afford PC users the option of gaining back the fidelity to those first E3 spots.

I understand the need to scale back quality for consoles. I do not understand why the PC footage they have released since has been downgraded in quality. Unless CDPROJEKT is to be trusted when they say they've held back on full quality footage in the interest of first-experience-awe, I'll be disappointed.

Hopefully this isn't another iteration of the Watch Dogs fuck up. If it is, at least we can hope they'll bury the capability away somewhere in there as was done with Watch Dogs. If the capability is there...why bury it, though?

The game is running well for me, except for going to the pause menu randomly every minute or so. Truly the weirdest bug I've run into in a AAA game. Weird mainly because it's not game breaking - just highly obnoxious.

STEAM IS ... DOWN

Neat.

How do I go about hooking up with the Blues Crew when I'm finally able to access the game?

Call me cynical, but I don't see anything good from this.

I'll just be charitable and assume you don't know much about net neutrality, Title II common carrier classification, or what the FCC actually voted on today.

It's really quite concerning that there is a segment of the population that will reflexively take the side of organizations as despicable as Comcast, rather than even consider the possibility that, on occasion, there is a need for government to curtail, in some limited fashion, the excessive market power of anti-competitive incumbent corporations for the sake of the public good.

This.

Insert Battlefield 4 game joke here.


You know ... I've been a fanboi of Battlefield for a long time. I have argued derision of the series up through BF3.

I have had some fun in BF4 but, for the most part, I think it could be accurately renamed Angergame: 2014. Just stacks of irritating, conflicting idiosyncrasy. Some days I get on and dominate, and others I can't move two feet without being killed in the dumbest ways.

*Spawned in front of enemies with my back to them
*Spawned directly in LOS of an enemy sniper
*Randomly blown up
*Constant kill trading
*Killed behind cover
*Avoidance of sniper fire by zig-zag feels like swimming in molasses

I could go on and on, but generally the game is just not as fun. For some reason a loss due to a horrible team feels many times worse than it did in BF3.

Anyway, thread hijack. I look forward to a fun, online FPS that favors fun over complete frustration.

solo-pugging

wut

pugging aka pubbing aka not a private scrim server aka "playing a public server"

solo = by yourself, aka without friends, aka i'm so alone, aka sadness mode engaged

i know what pubbing is

just not familiar with that little variation of the word that you came up with

doesnt make sense but whatever

anyways, go have fun solo-pegging yourself

It's an acronym for "Pick up group", to give a helpful answer without being an unnecessary dickhole.

Have 3-4 hours in the game - there is no way the PC was lead platform - it just isn't possible.

As stated, the menu and UI is direct console version. Large text and boxes, terrible mouse input, weird mouse movement, etc.

Weapon wheel is really f-d up. Hold tab then go around, but then there are multiple selections for each item, and it isn't easy to switch. Just a mess.

Because the mouse stuff is so jacked up, gun fights are a nightmare - I guess I could turn on auto aim.

If the PC was lead platform, none of the UI stuff would be this bad. It is absolutely unacceptable in 2014 for this stuff to be like this.

It honestly feels like an arcade driving game with running elements put in afterwards. It lacks polish. Remember the last few Driver games? Where you could get out of the car and run around - yea, it feels THAT bad.

I agree with everything you have written here. It's a shame too, because it resides near the border of great game territory, while crippling itself enough to exist on the side of frustrating deficiency.

The sluggish controls continually pull me out of a sense of immersion, which amplifies the annoyance of a console oriented UI. They got close, but it isn't likely a game I will be going back to after a week, or so.

It looks more like Battlefield 3.5.

here's hoping the next installment will be Battlefield 2143

With Titanfall on the way you can bet EA will be looking to compete with it, I bet we'll see a BF5 that is essentially BF2143.

Titanfall is an EA release.

Bullshit, this close to release they don't have time to make serious changes. What you saw in the beta will 99% be closest to the final. Every fucking beta works like this, morons like you who haven't experienced enough actual beta's deny it though.

I bet you can't even name one game where beta and retail were radically different.

BF3. Not only are you being inflammatory, you are also quite wrong. The BF3 beta was an older build than what DICE were working with when the beta was being held. The final release was noticeably different both in performance, game play, and aesthetic. This is straight fact, guy.

Yeah, because you know, Biden has been way extreme all his life, what with his "Eat babies" campaign.

--

Look at the charges against Aaron Swartz for what the actual actions were. The reason the charges are being posthumously dropped because they know it was a gigantic overreach and they were just going for a show-trial for both lobbyists and the public. Prosecutors, lobbyists and certain politicians want this to go away, quickly.

To this day, no one has been prosecuted for crashing the world economy with bad debt and mortgage trading schemes. Most of the actors involved are multi-billion dollar corporations.

A guy making a political statement with little to no access to resources gets 13 felony charges (some completely irrelevant to his actual actions) against him for what is traditionally misdemeanor offenses.

Nothing like an informed post to make me smile
