Also, just in case you have never ever bought a CoD game in your entire life, Activision is making the entire collection available as a bundle, just in case you wanted to buy them all in one shot. All of the games, and all of the DLC can be yours for the low, low price of $299.99. Allthumbsup

Advanced Warfare isn't even in that bundle. LOL

In before all the people that don't even play the game chime in.

I've put about 100 hours into this game. I don't really play it anymore, mostly because of server and engine performance ridiculousness.

For a game all about immersion, and one that does it much better than most, they need to sort out how the servers will work. every server disconnects about once every couple hours.

My guess is that people stopped playing because the last major patch shifted the focus from unfettered pvp (which is this game has nailed btw, the pvp in this game is unlike any other) to focus on survival mechanics. It was jarring, but I can see how it could turn-off the pvp junkie.

I wish they would just say eff it and port the whole mess to Arma3 already. It would probably solve a whole host of issues. Arma2 engine is just so shitty words can't adequately describe it.

I really, really like this game, and wish it was in better hands. I just can't take the performance issues anymore, with no end in sight. That said, I've more than gotten my money's worth on it, so if I have to walk, then at least it was fun.

*Shrugs* I don't know - for me the excitement isn't totally there for slightly different reasons (like it not being Isometric), but everyone has there own take on FO now (for me the series peaked in 1998/2001). I'm surprised there is already a pre-order up.

(Perhaps overly optimistic) Rumor is this fall. I was surprised by the preorder as well, as I expected the game next year (still am, actually).

Guess we'll see in a couple of weeks.


7 years since FO3 and almost 4 years(!), if you can believe it, since Skyrim. That's a good chunk of time, even for a game like this. I'll be buying whenever the first game fixing mods hit.

If they can produce a game,and this ship as shown in the 1st video released for Star Citizen/Squadron 42, AND not take a fucking mega computer sent from the future to run it... then awesome.

But until then everything released is a bullshot.

It's going to take a mega computer. Roberts was very up-front that the requirements would be steep. I wouldn't worry if you have a 970 or 290. This looks fantastic, imo.

AMD is likely to get bought out. Right now Samsung is a strong contender, although in the past I suggested perhaps NVIDIA. NVIDIA's strategy, however, has sharply diverted from that path over the last few years. My money's on Samsung for a variety of reasons; they have their own fabrication capabilities that can match or beat Intel, they wouldn't face anti-trust issues that NVIDIA and Intel would, they already make their own versions of mobile SOCs (effectively APUs), they have the cash and leverage, and it fits their current market strategy (plus, AMD and Samsung are already in a cooperative agreement). They'll wait for the right moment where there is a convergence between low AMD stock value and low competition for a buyout. This is still a while out, so put away your pocketbook for now.

it doesn't matter who buys them out, no one else will be interested in competing with intel for x86 processors. It's the rise of ARM that killed AMD, otherwise someone would have bought them out years ago. Samsung would only buy AMD for patents and GPU tech. ARM designs will eventually push even intel out of the ENTIRE consumer market. x86 is living on borrowed time and intel knows it.

Yeah that was a little thick on the AMD. But like Win10's plan, the O/S, front ends of current gen... these need to now become long term fronts. Meaning, if it goes as it has, we are stuck here for another 7 years.

We need to embrace change and that change is game systems that get enhanced now and remain 100% compatible, but with better innards. Everything else is doing that and at a much larger scale and to even a more casual base. Console gamers can't handle this? Really? It can work AND AND AND it keeps us moving forward timely. PS Sell at a profit like phones, you make money when gamers go out and by the new units, win!. The old units still work, so those that want to wait, can. Many want the better stuff if you'd just give them the opportunity to buy it.

To me that is the next step for consoles to make. How do they see getting big into VR with those mid-range specs, which will soon be unquestionably low-range?

If VR takes off, they will have to release new hardware or bow out. I think they bow out of gaming consoles no matter what happens. There's just not enough money in the way the current platform operates.

The company in the best position is Valve, but I don't think they have the cultural wherewithal (i.e. no killer corporate instinct) to pull it off. They could absolutely own the high-end gaming market with SteamOS.

You can all thank AMD for that. AMD hardware is fucking garbage. But they marketed it well enough to Microsoft and Sony, with enough of a discount over nVidia that they bought the marketing and stuffed that trash in their consoles. And now we all fucking suffer for it. Good going, PR. You're literally holding back progress. The last console gen was actually a huge step up from the one before it, but now that AMD is involved, it's barely an improvement, let alone a generational leap.

I don't know if I should blame AMD for not being able to compete or nVidia for spoiling us with actual innovative hardware. I tend to think that progress is the better path to take though, rather than cutting corners constantly the way AMD does. I wish some rich investor would step up and inject tons of funding into AMD so that we don't have to keep being tied down to this utter trash we keep having to deal with from them.

I guarantee it's going to be the same fucking bullshit with their 300 series of GPUs too. All the fanboys are trumpeting it as the thing that will finally bring down nVidia. No. 3d memory isn't going to do jack shit. They'll still be number 2, and their idiot fanboys will still defend them, despite the fact that the majority of the series will merely be rebrands, and the one that has the new stacked memory will cost far more than it's worth. When will people wake up and stop buying their shit just because it's cheaper? Force them to actually make advancements instead of holding the entire fucking industry back. >:\

Wow. I'm no AMD fan, but they built those SoCs to spec for their clients. MS and Sony could have ordered heftier parts but cheaped out and/or made an agreement not compete on the performance front.

What I've always wondered was if they can build those chips for consoles, what's stopping them (beside contracts, likely) from making a super-beefy SoC's designed to run windows? That would be a killer HTPC solution. Their A10 and A8 lines are joke. If they can build a chip with the specs like a PS4 and sell it, at a profit, for $100-$150 to Sony. Why the hell wouldn't they make chip to sell to PC peeps with similar specs for $200?

CD Projekt RED is giving back a little of that great cred they built up recently.

No one should be surprised that a game built for 3 platforms has serious compromises. Blame Sony and Microsoft for cheaping-out on hardware, which in retrospect feels like collusion between MS and the Big S to keep specs low.

Everyone assumed the new consoles would be far more powerful. Like someone said here on this website, not rendering at 1080p for all titles simply wasn't a conversation anyone thought was possible when discussing the new console generation.

That's a mistake on CDPR's part and one they're not likely to make again, but at least an understandable one.

It's just a game and has nothing to do with the rest of the operating system. Might as well freak out at the inclusion of Solitaire. We've been testing Windows 10 at work and its perfectly fine, much better than Windows 8 in terms of accommodating all user devices with minimal compromise. The small resource footprint and requirements are great too, its a big improvement over Windows 7. Don't listen to the people who can't even bothered to load it up and just parrot whatever they hear on Slashdot.
It's not just a game. It's Microsoft including software from a company who engages in blatantly unethical, predatory practices. People don't spend money on Candy Crush because they want to, they spend money because the game is engineered down to the last bit to manipulate them into doing so.

...and those people are called idiots. Or rather, fools... and that which may they soon part with...

very very skeptical

They're simply setting the benchmark for cost. A roughly $300 dollar card will be required to the play the thing at any one time, off into infinity. As Horror said, this is not a surprise to anybody.

The rift will always be best utilized with a top, top, top card, or an SLI setup, the latter of which should prove to be the ideal bang for buck scenario. What could really be good, if nvidia and amd support this well with drivers, will be the $200 range GPU's in SLI/Xfire. There's real potential there for "just enough to be perfect" without blowing $600-$700 on a flagship.

current equivalent? ok i can see that, maybe

still skeptical even on these specs, running the rift today

i guess the fine print is "at low to medium settings" Winkrazz

that's absolutely the fine print as was reading this story today.

I just hope we get more games that looked as good, and ran at 120+ fps like Alien: Isolation on max settings. There's a reason why people love that game on the Rift.
