News Comments > AMD Crimson Drivers Hotfix
1. Re: AMD Crimson Drivers Hotfix Jan 12, 2016, 12:06 Sacrifex
 
As someone with Crossfire 6970's, I'm a bit salty about AMD cutting off new driver releases to their pre-HD7000 cards.I game on one 1080p monitor, and they still get the job done on ultra in most cases.

I know they want people to move up and buy new cards, but you can still get updated Drivers for a 10 year old nVidia card. With some of the problems I had, I was going to go nVidia for my next build anyway, so it didn't really change my buying decision, but it's a bit of a bummer to need to wait out the next gen Titan for likely another year+ with new games being buggy.

The HD 7000 brought new tech, so, I can kind of see why, but, it seems a much shorter lifespan than I had expected. Hearing AMD talk about new tech again makes me wonder if this is going to start to be a recurring theme.

Just like how it got out of hand as Path of Exile, Rocket League, etc... got more items/DLC, right?

Until it's warranted, lets just put the pitchfork down, okay?

I used to love the Heroes Series, so it pains me to say it, but, if you play anything by Ubisoft, you deserve whatever you get (or, don't get).

Ubisoft-free for the better part of a decade, and going strong here.

News Comments > Battlefield Hardline DRM Complaints
21. Re: Battlefield Hardline DRM Complaints Mar 25, 2015, 10:43 Sacrifex
 
After buying BF3, with the Premium as soon as it came out, and then, the real lesson, BF4 with Premium, I decided that I was not going to be buying this.

I'm playing other games, having a good time, and not having to put up with being treated like a criminal for being a paying customer.

To be honest, its reaffirmed my decision to stop buying/playing anything from Ubisoft, and EA is officially added to the skip list. If I'm missing something, I'm too busy having fun to notice.

Rather incorrect - having bought premium for both games, and thus getting insanely burned on BF4, I'm adding DICE to the list of people I refuse to buy anything by/from, with no chance of parole.

They can throw a party with Ubisoft. Last game I ever purchased with their name on it was Far Cry 2 in 2008.

I'll throw down on it, conditionally. If it is as horrible of a port as GTA4 was, I'll skip it without a second thought.

Bought GTA 4 and the Episodes for something like ten bucks on Steam. Had I bought it at full retail, I'd have been quite annoyed. Entirely unplayable on higher-end hardware that didn't even exist when the game launched. I suppose that unplayable is a subjective term, but it certainly met my definition.

News Comments > Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting Down Next Year
8. Re: Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting down Next Year Sep 17, 2013, 15:17 Sacrifex
 
While I wasn't huge on the auction house, it was a necessary evil because of the awful (dare I say, non-existent) lobby system to congregate and trade items in, as well as the removal of the ability to choose a public game you want to choose from a list, ala D2 (I traded tons of items in games named "Tradezzz," back then.

Without a good communication system for trading, of which message boards are not one, the game has essentially become a single player game, with online DRM.

I'm fine with either option, a good AH or a good chat channel and game joining system, but with neither, what renewed interest I had in the title recently is dead. They'll have done the exact opposite of what they intended - killed the ability to exchange items with other players, and essentially made the game more of a solo Skinner Box than it ever could have been otherwise.

I picked up the game a few sales back, but I was told the scene could be extremely vitriolic, so I never even went online with it. I have too many games left on the backlog to spend time getting yelled at when I'm trying to have fun.

Same reason I won't touch LoL, and the like.

News Comments > Bulletstorm Sequel Cancelled; PC Piracy Mentioned

Didn't play this one because of the mediocre reviews, the horror stories of the PC port (which they openly admit was crap), and, it didn't help that Cliffy B couldn't keep his trap shut and mouthed off specifically at PC gamers.

But hey, piracy. Yeah.

As mentioned before, what's the explanation for the game selling like crap on consoles? Everyone with a PS3 and 360 just build a PC so they could pirate it?

Awesome news - it's one of the few games I really, really wanted to play, but couldn't because it was console only.

Getting to play it at higher resolutions at a constant 60 fps will make it worth the wait.

Day one buy for me if the port is done well.

You start out with a grand total of one (two, if you count your pistol as seperate from the starting SMG). If you want to modify it at all, you're stuck grinding, or paying up. There are no options to change without cash/points.

News Comments > Blacklight Retribution Launch
7. Re: Blacklight Retribution Launch Apr 4, 2012, 15:29 Sacrifex
 
Despite their claims that it is not pay-to-win, the method for unlocking guns, etc... is entirely just that.

You can unlock them by earning points during multiplayer, but, the gain is so absurdly slow, that you're probably looking at no less than 30-40 full rounds played just to unlock a single gun customization. Then more to get a single attachment, etc...

I thought the first Blacklight was fun enough (got it during the $1 sale Microsoft had back when), but, this one is not remotely worth the time investment if you don't want to just shovel cash out. Very disappointing.

News Comments > Borderlands 2 PC Features
26. Re: Borderlands 2 PC Features Mar 16, 2012, 19:32 Sacrifex
 
Butthurt trolololling aside (seriously, if you're going to stop buying PC games because their last iteration didn't have features that most skip due to console roots, just sell your PC and take up cross-stitching or something), this went from a wait-until-a-Steam-Sale, to a likely early buy to play with friends.

I liked the idea of the first game, so polished up, and with PC centric features, I'm in.

If you play Pay2Win games, you deserve whatever awful crap happens. BFBC2 is ten bucks - five if you catch a sale. Say what you will about it, it's better than the Play4Free pigshit.

I could not have any less empathy for the people affected by this.

News Comments > Syndicate Refused Classification in Australia
5. Re: Syndicate Refused Classification in Australia Dec 20, 2011, 12:42 Sacrifex
 
If games got censored just to sell down under, you'd be playing My Little Pony 142 instead of real games. Banning games is their bread and butter - it's nothing new.

No developer has taken them seriously as a market - for good reason, given the conditions - and by association, if a mangled, unworkable censored version gets released, it's only for a quick cash grab on the overcharged Aussies.

It's got to be pretty crappy to be a gamer there - besides being charged double what some areas are, getting to be the running gag for the rest of the world's gamers has to suck.

I can't be the only one that thinks quoting performance as only 30% over that of a 6970, but almost as fast as a 6990, is a bit odd. I have a hard time believing anything in the article with such a glaring oversight.

Also, flagship or not, $550 is nVidia money. AMD has not done nearly a good enough job with driver support to justify that kind of dough. I was considering dealing my 6970's and going single card this next Gen, but not for that kind of cost. That performance justifies $375 to $400 at most from AMD, with their greatly inferior aftersale support.

The whole article reeks of shoddy journalism, and rumor mongering to me.

News Comments > CD Projekt Versus File-Sharers?

No problem with this, at all. No DRM means legitamate customers have nothing to fret over, and they even publically said back before Witcher 2 was released that they may choose to go directly after those who pirated the game.

Mess with the bull, potentially get the horns. I'm not going to cry because a company chose to treat their customers like customers, and their petty thieves like criminals. Seems to make a boatload of sense to me. Makes me want to buy a copy of Witcher 2, even if it would just get lost in my backlog.
