I read a few days ago, DayZ had passed 2 million copies sold after 19 weeks in Early Access.

I've never heard of Blizzard wanting your DL... What use could they possibly have for that? You sure you weren't being phished? Or are you just being facetious?

Of all the servers that run NS2Stats, the win rate is 54% aliens 46% Marines, which isn't so bad.

Thanks, I'll give it a try again.. I stopped playing after a couple consecutive maps of 1-2 guys with jetpack/shotgun combos just wrecking the entire server. Glad it's been balanced out.

You will always have skilled players that can dominate... That's not a balance issue, at least not as far as game design.

I don't understand how they could fuck up this IP so bad. Sexy vampire inflicting shockingly gory violence on Nazis really hooked me when I was younger... Where did they go wrong? A victim of political correctness maybe?

Hellgate: London was awesome, too, at least until you ran into a show-stopper quest bug...

You know, I've been a pretty big fan of zombie games... But even I have to admit that it's getting to be a bit ridiculous.

Missing 'Crusader' in the title made me do a double-take... There's already a Stronghold 2, from almost a decade ago.

It's not too difficult to get a feel for where the center of the screen is to be able to shoot without crosshairs, or some people even physically mark the center of any screen they use primarily for gaming with a Sharpie dot. But considering this appears to be the console version, I'd say it's just aim-assist. The kind where it will change the trajectory of your shot off of dead-center in order to hit the target you were "close enough" to aiming at.

Yes, patient for 6 months while people who found the bug in beta were free to exploit it regularly. I'm sure they're thankful for that, DICE...

Normally I'd say the same, but when they're boasting about how closely their game resembles reality, it's one of the more glaring differences that screams "I'm the fake one!"

Psssh. We're Bungie. We're so used to fucking you PC guys that we could care less at this point. Buy a console, you scrubs!
In what way has Bungie "fucked" you? What specific harm was inflicted?

You mean other than taking a PC game and hyping it for years and then deciding it was instead an Xbox exclusive? Only to release it years later as a shitty port? Or making the sequel not only years later than the Xbox version, again, but ALSO making it so you had to have Vista to play it?
Yeah, but what did you actually lose? Did a game you already had purchased disappear from your library?

No no, the definition of "fucked" has changed. It now applies even when you only feel you've been wronged.

Yep, I am so humbled by that collapse of reasoned argument into profanity-laden ad hominem attacks, I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight... And then the publicly declared ignore? Yowza, that really salted the wound! Rolleyes

Him taking his ball and going home has about as much of an effect on me as you chiming in on the backside when you're convinced I've been beaten down enough to not want to stand back up. If not stooping to his level means I'm a princess, then I ought to ask to borrow his tiara. You're right though, I didn't know about the patch. Not that it changes my opinion any.

They need to overcome those weird reflections, too. I don't know if that's an issue with the geometry of the car or just an insistence to exaggerate the effect so that people notice it more, but it's way off.

"Good port, I want a good port, blah blah blah." No, you don't. You want an action-RPG just like Dark Souls, that was designed for keyboard and mouse instead. That's a completely different game, and you never had any reason to expect that. You are irrational for judging this release on that basis. Not to mention in the minority, based on its reception outside of view-baiting drama-queen YouTubers and its #1 seller status on Steam.

The only valid point I've seen in any thread here on Blue's is that you still get the Xbox button prompts when not using a controller, which I would agree is silly but it can be fixed. They'll probably polish up some key-binding issues, too, if they manage to dredge some constructive feedback out of the internet cesspool that is all of those people screaming "BAD PORT!!!1" The game runs great, is scale-able, looks much better than on consoles and will only improve over time with mods (custom textures are already in, just wait for some hi-res packs), and works flawlessly with what is probably the single most popular PC [gaming] accessory out there, the Xbox controller. Thousands upon thousands of people are happily dying over and over again, and are generally too busy actually enjoying it than making mountains out of molehills on internet forums.

P.S. Thanks for the blow-up, just shows everyone exactly the kind of person who's harboring this bizarre grudge against FROM for bringing a fantastic series to PC when they really didn't have to. I don't spend one errant moment worrying over how you play your games, but it is amusing how much offense you take when someone points out there might be a better way, one with more efficiency and utility in the right applications. On second thought, maybe you shouldn't get a gamepad, as it's a perfect missile when you fly off into a blind rage and it's bound to do some damage to whatever or whoever you hit with it...

Agreed. PC version or bust for me.

What hate might that be Jacob? If you are referring to the M+K fiasco, then there is good reason for that hate. Because those controls are abysmal, try remapping some of the keys in the game and see what happens. That is what kills be about the game. I specifically use the right side of my keyboard, always have. I cannot stand to use the WASD, I have larger hands and the closeness of those movement key always cause issues for me hitting keys I donít want to. I do not have those issues using the arrow keys.

When you try rebinding those keys, they wonít save. Itís utterly ridiculous that you cannot rebind certain keys in the game.

So yea, a lot of pc gamers are upset.

Lmao... First of all, I have no sympathy for anyone who plays these kinds of games with KBM. I've said it before, Dark Souls, Assassin's Creed, Need For Speed, whatever, you're torturing yourself needlessly with an inherently inferior control scheme for the gameplay style.

Even ignoring that, you're doing it wrong. I've not used arrow keys for movement since the Doom era (I'd say different strokes, but again, you're hampering yourself with a terrible hand position), but just to see for myself I went in-game right now and re-bound it that way. It worked just fine. I even restarted the game to see if it stuck, and it did, so... You'll have to blame user error there. You're probably running into an issue of overlapping keybinds that the game is trying to prevent. If it didn't do that, you'd be complaining about the game firing off spells or moving the camera or whatever when you try to step forward.

I've never said they have the best control scheme, especially not for KBM, but even for that it is serviceable. They actually did a lot to the UI in making it mouse-friendly, including a grid-based inventory and all the rollover selection. You couldn't do that in the last game. This is a gamepad game, and there's nothing wrong with that IMO. Sorry the truth hurts, but you can either suck it up and wrestle with the system they gave you or swallow your misplaced pride and get a damned controller. Believe me, you'll be much happier in playing this and many other games.

Well, I reckon that's the end of the Dark Souls franchise.

Well, three solid games in a series is about as good as you can ever hope, I guess.

If by solid game you mean 2 games that are abysmal console ports ...

Apparently they are good on console?

They are, but even better on PC. Don't let facts get in the way of the hate train, though.

Nobody gives a shit about your dumb shooter, EA. When are you bringing PvZ 2 to the PC?

Unless they massively change it up to get rid of the F2P schlock, we're better off without it, really.
