Word from the wise....unless your coke'd up or on Adderal don't bother seriously competing in video games.


Only play video games to have fun...word from the wise.

One of my friends was part of this ban. Saw him get away with it since launch. It really killed my love of gaming and totally turned me off of Diablo 3 and many other games.

He is planning on going to Grim Dawn.

What was he doing?

News Comments > Dying Light DLC Released; Season Pass Details
11. Re: Dying Light DLC Released; Season Pass Details Feb 10, 2015, 11:55 jacobvandy
 
I've played 20 hours and have still yet to go to the second map... so YMMV, just like any game. I'm the type of guy to do all the side missions and explore and such in an open world game, not just rush through the story. "Only two maps" isn't really a fair criticism when one of them is the size of several of the original empty, linear Dead Island maps sewn together and also stacked on top of each other.

As for the DLC... If I spot the season pass on a good sale, 50% off or so, I might grab it. Bozak sounds good, depending on the size of the map, and the missions could be interesting, but I really don't care about new outfits or blueprints unless the latter are actually unique. Most of the blueprints I've found so far just add damage and/or an elemental effect. How about a boomerang module so weapons come back after you throw them, some bait to lure zombies into fighting bandits, or mods for guns?

Yes it's Unity, in fact you used to be able to play the whole thing through your browser before they transitioned to Steam EA. But what they have now, single-player wise, is nothing compared to the campaign they're supposed to be working on. I don't even know anymore.

I wonder if they're gonna polish up those graphics? It looks like the same engine and assets they used for Men of War, which are not exactly made to be examined up close, heh.

The last fight requires quick time events so I recant nearly all praise I have of this game. I don't give a shit if it's even a 'hit any key' button, talk about using bullshit mechanics in a game that had none up until that point.

I'd be willing to trade it for Wolfenstein The New Order now.

Flip-flopper! A great game isn't a bad game because of one flaw. It just has that one flaw. There's plenty of shit wrong with Skyrim, but you ignore it because the rest of the game is that. fucking. good. You're just being overdramatic.

It seemed pretty obvious to me that he meant you can rent a game, say for several days, as opposed to buying it to keep. I don't think that has anything to do with playing it as a free demo for an hour or whatever.

Interesting bit they added to the GeForce tweak guide about the changes in the 1.2.1 patch.

Dying Light Graphics & Performance Guide

"Investigating these changes, we have discovered a significant reduction to the maximum View Distance range, decreasing the amount of detail rendered, thereby improving performance. The catalyst for this change appears to be a vocal minority who expect max settings in PC games to run flawlessly on every system, and decry games that fail to meet this standard as "unoptimized". By reducing the view distance, performance has been 'fixed' and the vocal minority placated, as can be seen in many a Dying Light forum thread."

Fortunately, they also document a workaround to restore the old level of detail.

Wow... That false sense of entitlement is so pervasive, it's even REDUCING the graphics quality of games. Makes me sad that "PC gamers" these days (or at least enough of them to affect what developers do) really want a more console-like experience, because they can't handle the responsibility of having more options. GG.

Thanks for the tip, though.

Well it does say it's "a version of Windows 10 that supports Raspberry Pi 2." So probably cut-down to some degree.

Yeah... People love to be in an uproar. They don't stop to think about whether they really have a reason for it. Idiot redditors can fuck off.

I don't even bother trying to call Comcast when I have a problem anymore, I just write their corporate customer care and they get shit done FAST. Of course, they don't promote this in any way, insisting on their site that they do not offer email support...

It's we_can_help@cable.comcast.com if you ever need it. You get a real person reading your email (take the time to explain in detail and include your account info) and they will call you or reply within a day, usually.

They meant the level design and etc., it does look pretty sweet.

Here's a link straight to the video if you can't help but throw up a bit in your mouth at the thought of clicking over to Kotaku:

Well if our entire country were about the size of California, we wouldn't have such problems laying out fiber everywhere either.

True, but altering the UI or appearance of other players to be more noticeable can be just as advantageous in a game where darkness is a major mechanic.

Lol, the purpose is to stop any modding that can occur so they can sell their DLCs later. "saving the players from the nasty cheaters" is just sugar coating.

If they try to sell UI options or a more advanced graphics options menu or a difficulty rebalanced for more realism, then you can come back and say you told us so.

Well that's the problem you run into where PVP gameplay is involved. It's no longer "oh let them do whatever they want, they're not hurting anybody." You have to consider fairness to other players.

I couldn't get through even two minutes of that gameplay. He is a HORRIBLE broadcaster and public speaker. It's 50% words and 50% smacking lips, gasping breaths, and UM, AH, UH. It's really awful.

I always get this one mixed up with State of Decay. It literally describes the same exact thing until you get to 'turn-based combat.'

I could see maybe one or two keys being purchased with a stolen CC but why wouldn't Origin red flag a sale for say more than five keys on one credit card.

And what of the people who did the CC fraud in the first place, I guess they got away with it.

Why should Origin care? People buy games for their friends all the time.

News Comments > Diablo III Season 1 Ends Next Week (Probably)
5. Re: Diablo III Season 1 Ends Next Week (Probably) Jan 28, 2015, 12:38 jacobvandy
 
It actually looks like the 3rd will be the day, as they're promoting it more solidly now. By which I mean they have a banner in the launcher stating it without the caveat. What Blue quoted is stuff they were saying 2-3 weeks ago. They must have edited it or something yesterday and the date got changed, because that entire article is old information.

I'll just be glad the season is over... I'm not chomping at the bit to get started in season two, I just want my paragon XP combined and my grift 35 Condemn Crusader to carry over with all the loot I've found and have been saving for other characters.
