Having never played a Grand Theft Auto game, I am looking forward to picking up the PC version of this come Fall.

In regards to Net Neutrality, this is a must watch if you haven't seen it already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbOEoRrHyU

Just like the cell phone companies, the cable companies are too big and have too much money-power.

Enjoy,

Sounds like an interesting concept. The first time Ive seen one from Crytek! This part bothers me though, games-as-a-service. Sounds like a nice way of saying they are trying out new ways of price gouging their customers...as if 5 hour campaigns for 60$ games wasnt humiliating enough....

It's only humiliating if we actually buy 5 hour campaigns for $60. Being burned so many times in the past has turned me into a very skeptical gamer.

Yeah, we've gotten to the point, or have been there a while now, where all the marketing and hype is better than the games themselves.

.........If anything this should be U.S. Citizens vs. Corrupt Usurper Government = more realistic, and plausible. (IE, like in Deus Ex, when the U.S. declares a bunch of states as rogue 'Terrorists')

If you don't already, you should check out Continuum on SyFy. It has its weaknesses, but overall it is a great show and the writing is very interesting. It's pretty well done in IMHO. Rachel Nichols is a babe too.

The original Homefront was 'okay' for me; it had so much potential, but was plagued with lazy and poor design decisions and it felt like it was rushed out the door, which I'm sure it was. I'm sure 'The Revolution' will be a better SP experience, but we'll just have to wait and see.

even ULTRA!! settings arent really impressive, it looks pretty damn mediocre

and yet they take a fucking beast machine to even run them at decent fps

so yeh, enjoy that


Yeah, that's because they are being greased by the hardware manufacturers to increase the system requirements in order to boost their hardware sales because we don't need to upgrade as often any more since consoles have become the lead platform. They're obviously feeling the hit.

That's my conspiracy theory for the day.

The performance is also terrible. It should not be this bad with GTX 680's in SLI.

I've read in various places that the game is poorly optimized for SLI. A lot of people were complaining how choppy the game was in SLI, but as soon as they turned SLI 'off', the game ran much better.

Hopefully this is something they are working on too for this next patch, but I didn't see that mentioned from TWEETle Dee or TWEETle dumb.

500 dollars got you iteration 2 of a camera that MS has again given up on, a horrifically underpowered box to play games on, worthless games in their free program, and (for awhile) paywalls.

But on the flipside, you get 4 mp maps for a shitty edition of CoD an entire month earlier! WOOOOO FEEL THE LOVE!

And the sad thing is, there are still people that will lap it up like dogs to peanut butter.....

Betheseda is publishing this, not developing it.

They are becoming like Valve.

Funny you should say that Task, as that very thought was going through my head when I was typing that post.

Thanks for the info Verno. Too bad the PC controls leave a lot to be desired. One of my friends preordered this, so I'll be curious about his assessment too.

I'd have done it by now, but MrsBlue is resistant. I think for her the scar of losing Hudson is still too painful.
It does take some time to heal, and sometimes people doesn't want another dog because they do not want to go through the same pain again when they loose them.
Most times though people end up with a puppy.

Yeah, it's bittersweet, it's what we sign up for, but IMHO it is all worth it. Both my dogs are over 12 now and the one is especially slowing down, so I have been trying to mentally prepare myself, and tear-up in the process.....it'll be tough.

It was released in an 'Alpha' state, but it just wasn't labeled as such, and then the sales were used to further develop the game......
