News Comments > Call of Duty: Black Ops III PC Closed Beta Begins
3. Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops III PC Closed Beta Begins Aug 26, 2015, 11:25 Brumbek
I refuse to buy another CoD. But I gladly played the PC beta last night to test. It ran so horribly. Multiple crashes. Major stutter. Hard freezing for several seconds. I'm on a nVidia GeForce 680 with i5 2500k CPU. So yes, my machine is older, but it is easily powerful enough to run this game.

So no suprise that BO3 is horribly optimized. I like how they claim they will optimize more before launch...and yet BO1 and BO2 both had major issues at launch...fool me twice...

Also, the PS4 version actually looks better and runs at a better framerate for me (I played both). Again they claim PC will have more graphics at launch...uh huh, right.

BTW, the new movement stuff is way less interesting than they claim. Most games play pretty much the same as all prior Black Ops games. Not impressed.

It's also locked at 30fps.
Ideally I'd like it to be at 15 FPS so I can enjoy each frame of "HD" so much more! ... ... (This was sarcasm aimed at both the deplorable 30 FPS lock and the fairly laughable "HD" moniker considering how little effort was put into the new textures and 3D models.)

PS: If a 60 FPS mod/hack comes out, I will buy the game. If not, NOPE.

Looked more like Gears of Doom. Either way, dodged a bullet.
Exactly what I thought. This looked so much like Gears with all the third person slow-running and hopping over stuff. I'm just saying in Call of Duty's defense their games don't look or play like this.

News Comments > The Witcher 3 Mod Tool Backlash
12. Re: The Witcher 3 Mod Tool Backlash Aug 16, 2015, 16:38 Brumbek
First thing: I'm MUCH more upset about the new patch wrongly giving players the two "Beat the game" achievements! I loaded my game up recently (I've barely touched the main story) and instantly received both...that is horrible testing of your patch and fairly inexcusable.

Second thing: can anyone name one Witcher 2 adventure mod? There are basically none (two listed on Nexus, both not good). So that kind of hurts the argument that CDPR is withholding something great from us...W2 and W3 are simply too complicated for users to make adventures.

They gave us scripting and model/texture tools, which is what 99% of modders want. So once again, it is the vocal minority, who aren't even modders, freaking out. Please flame me to oblivion now.

I replayed the first (HR) one 3 times ;p So I am kinda hyped for this.. just hoping it will still give us option for a complete non-lethal playthrough.
Yet another thing we agree on! I played DXHR 4+ times though, so clearly you lack dedication. Also, I'm pretty sure they already confirmed a no-kill option, although they didn't specify if this applied to all boss encounters.

Am I the only one who felt that this game was just a re-skin of Civ 5? I wasn't very impressed at all and was hoping for more I guess.
Everyone (except the blindly delusional) feels this way. Beyond Earth is a half-hearted re-skin mod of Civ 5. Very sad. I highly recommend no one buy it!

In fact, I prefer to never speak of it. It is better if we pretend the game doesn't exist. I know they want to sell us the expansion that is going to "save" the game...but it won't. It can't fix the heartless, soulless base-game.

(I'm now going to go to my happy place, which is of course cottage spamming in Civ IV, watching all that money roll in!)

Or he's saying Just Cause 2 was beyond terrible, to the point that humanity should be forced to obliterate it from memory and all record, and Just Cause 3 merely sucks so bad you feel embarrassed for everyone involved.
Good summary of both filmmakers. With that said, this dev's quote is highly inaccurate. Just Cause 2 was an amazing game with a really funny story. The dialogue and cutscenes were really enjoyable because they had a purposeful B-movie feel. Hence Just Cause 2 was a sort of satire comedy mixed with crazy action.

I sure hope there is! D3 is really amazing now, but it needs new content along with the new gameplay stuff.

I gotta say this looks pretty underwhelming graphics wise. Bloodborne looked great but this barely looks better than DS2.
I don't know, I think it looks quite fine, very similar to Bloodborne. I'm a huge graphics guy and totally lambasted them for the horrible DS2 graphics downgrade...but this trailer looks fine to me.

DS3 is never going to have better graphics than Bloodborne. For one, Bloodborne had the artistic support of Japan Studio, an incredibly talented team. But DS3 looks decent to me, leaps and bounds better than the HORRIBLY ugly DS2.

Ok.. I admit that made me laugh very hard...
EA, masters of delusion!

I will admit I had a ton of fun playing the Hotwire mode during the free Beta. I put a good 20 hours into the game, very much enjoying riding around in circles listening to crazy tunes. Best Beta experience I've had, I believe. It let me get all the fun out of Hardline without paying anything.

Bummer. I thought it'd be here sooner. That's cutting it kind of close to Fallout's release date.

It'll be my first time with WL2, since I was waiting all this time for the (hopefully) inevitable Much Better Version.

But Fallout 4...nothing can come close to Fallout 4. It will consume every moment for months. I know some will balk at Bethesda, but I'm 100% in for Fallout 4.

The console version of Diablo 3 is much more fun, both in terms of features and the controls being more amenable to frequent input with my ancient arms. Never thought I would say that but uh there it is haha.
I totally agree. As crazy as it sounds, the console version is insanely fun to play, letting you more directly control your character like the recent Victor Vran.

Once 2.3.0/1 comes out, I'm going to be very tempted to buy the PS4 version. But I'm waiting to see if they announce an expansion or not at Gamescom.

I have like... 8 characters on PoE, only one of which has been lucky enough to get a halfway decent chest with 5 link.
Well, PoE requires a lot of study to understand the systems. Getting a 5-Link is not hard. If you are waiting for a 5L drop, you are doing it completely wrong. 5L drops are ultra-rare because the game wants you to collect Jeweller's Orbs and Orbs of Fusing and use those items to create a 5L. It isn't hard to do. So I might suggest that an adjustment to your strategy is needed. In your defense the game doesn't explain this stuff; it wants you to figure it out.

Still haven't tried PoE because the F2P aspect turns me off... I want to try Diablo 3 but Blizzard almost never puts their stuff on sale. I'd drop $20 on it easily, but I'm not curious enough for $40.
As noted, PoE is 100% ethical free-to-play. You only pay for cosmetic stuff and stash space. And the game already gives you plenty of stash space. It took me 90 hours before I ran out of stash space and bought more. PoE developer Grinding Gear Games is such a fair, ethical, and honest developer who totally deserves my support.

And about D3, massive respect to Blizzard for continuing to give huge free patches! D3 is so amazing now. The game is easily worth $40!

I've put hundreds of hours into both D3 and PoE. I adore them both. Both have been massively, exponentially improved in this last year with patches and upgrades.

Go play PoE for another month until 2.3.0 of D3 comes out! This is a the best time ever for Diablo genre fans!

Path of Exile has a lot of interesting aspects, but the basic core of that game, the combat, is inferior to Diablo 3. On top of that, drops for single players are way too low, in my opinion. I don't trade, I have no intention of trading, so don't try to force me(or the many people like me) to have to trade, by having shit drops.

Opinions will differ of course, but I think a lot of people feel similar to the way I do; PoE is still lacking.
I hear what you are saying. PoE combat is definitely technically inferior in the sense of animations, timing, smoothness, and reliability. But PoE combat when you get end game is super-fun too. I'm curious if you ever got a good 5-Link attack skill setup? PoE takes 30+ hours of play to get really fun, which is a downside.

PoE gets crazy fun when you can run Tornado Shot-Faster Attacks-Increased Phys-Increased Crit all together. Or when running a Star Wars Emperor fry-the-screen Arc Witch with Arc-Spell Echo-Lightning Penetration-Power Charge on Crit-Faster Casting setup. Just two examples that are so, so fun.

About drops, I don't trade either and you can do fine with the drops. You just won't ever have the best Uniques...which is ok. You can still play nearly all end-game content playing self-found.

Anyway, I love both D3 and PoE! I was just thinking today that both game styles are great fun. D3 gives you 9 choices in your skills/passives, which is great for quick and easy play with any build at any time. PoE gives you about 250 skills/passives choices, which is awesome for super-intense 10 hour study in building the perfect character. I love both games!

"Citing artistic differences the band broke up in May, And in June reformed without me, and they got a different name."

Anywho...sad news for Dead Island fans like me, but I highly doubted (and still doubt) DI2 would be any good. Dying Light is the real sequel and we all know it.

Creston wrote on Jul 8, 2015, 10:55:
Come on, why are you guys hating on them for giving away free MP content?
I see your point of course. I think the reason people are upset is because there are still some very annoying bugs in the SP game, yet all they do is release MP patches. Perhaps the SP bugs are too hard to fix or something, but some fans feel annoyed that the patches focus on a mode only played by a VERY tiny percent of the playerbase.

I'm still trying to work through the SP game...I'm such a slow player!

I assume by optional movement response, it'll be like Witcher 1 and 2 where he moves near instantly in the direction you choose.
We can only hope! Basically, a movement system where you move when you move, you know like real life!

I find it so funny that the 1.0 movement was so insanely sluggish, making Geralt less agile than my own self in real life. I've never got stuck hugging a door or found myself running in weird little circles when picking flowers. So am I just a ninja or what?!?

I agree with what you wrote, and yet I do buy them and play them.
the fighting is typically good in them as well as the grind. Not to mention nice music.

Other than that, I cannot give more reason. But yet I still play them.

Thanks for your input! I appreciate the perspective. This is a series I always try to like but the grindy gameplay and generic JRPG tropes always wear me out. I'll try it again when they come to PC, though! Thanks again for the thoughts.
