Is the XBone controller better than the 360 controller? The latter is still being used - it's a great gamepad. Too bad MS doesn't know how to avoid the analog stick centering issue though. I've bought a 360 pad 3 times because of it.

the Xbox One controller is pretty decent. definitely an improvement over the original Xbox 360 one.

but one thing the PS4 controller can do that the other one can't is be able to use the touchpad in Windows as a mouse. also the gyroscope works so you can program it to do stuff, and even adjust the light on the controller or turn it off completely.

What's my motivation to go get once of these for my PC when I have 3 360 controllers already that I'm perfectly happy with?
Exactly

right now Xbox One controllers are too expensive but when they get cheaper I'd get one just for PC. I'd say better for FPS games than a PS4 controller, and more precise. mouse and keyboard is ultimately the best, but not while reclining on the couch.

the graphics will probably look a lot better instead of being limited to Xbox One's inferior hardware. it's really a no brainer to simply port all Xbox One games to PC.

I don't think any of the 4 PS4 games mentioned in the PSU article will be shown at E3?

well i don't think any Xbox One exclusive game will stay exclusive for long...

though Xbox One has in my eyes redeemed itself now that it does not require Kinect. i might pick up an XB1 later when it goes <$299 and Halo 5 comes out.

In other news, nVidia is reporting a significant bump in recent sales of video cards with at least 3GB of VRAM. In fact, the newly released GTX 780 6GB variants are practically flying off the shelves.

</CONSPIRACY_THEORY>

you mean AMD cards?

I just bought Distant Worlds and only starting out, but it looks great so far.

I want to get Watch Dogs since GTA 5 is not coming to PC's any time soon (if ever) but I think I'm going to wait until A.) they issue the first patch for it, or B.) it goes on sale for some reason. It doesn't bother me that it plays like GTA since I've got over 800 hours in GTA 4 alone and I still play it regularly. (Single player only, too.)

Yes, A is more likely than B.

just curious but what do u do in GTA4 singleplayer that u can spend 800 hours on that only? is it with mods? i was thinking of trying some mods out, got any recommendations?

if u haven't played GTA5 yet u should get it for PS3 now, it's really really good. tho the graphics and framerate on PS3 make me wish it were on PC. i just recently contacted Rockstar now telling them i would even work at their company for free if they are working on a GTA5 PC port.

Complete crap. Uninstalled in less than 1 hour

This... i played it for around an hour but then quickly got rid of it after. not really a fan of MMOs but wanted to try it after ESO, and playing it reminded of why i don't play MMOs to begin with.

not sure what sempei wrote but Blue just posts news, afaik he doesn't hold any bias towards one game or another.

"Considering the Wii U's lackluster console sales worldwide (6 million and counting)"...

wow, so already after this weekend there's a global software attach ratio of every 1.2 out of 6 Wii U gamers (20%) that got this game? that's impressive.

I have zero fucking idea what the plot is. I joined exiles to play with my friends and we started out in a colony ship attacked by some bad guys who were hunting us so we evacuated down to the planet and then... That whole premise just kind of went out the window. I am playing the cyborg diseased race and started out looking for a cure even though apparently there's a huge fucking war going on like right around us. Next I'm trying to talk to some big fucking tree then everything gets set on fire and I'm running around now with elves (yay. More fucking elves. I am so fucking tired of elves) rubbing my dick on forest spirits to make them feel good (not really an exaggeration).

There's icons that show you that you can scan something as part of your "path" but they only appear about 25% of the time, and I feel like I'm completely fucking lost. It doesn't help that so far the environments I've seen are kind of cool colony ship, generic overgrown vine & forest amalgam #378, and a bad guy base that looks like Warhammer 40k Ork settlement steampunk for a supposedly extremely advanced spacefaring race.

I've spend about 8 hours in the game and literally have no fucking clue what's going on. They spend a lot of cutscenes introducing you to characters that I no longer encounter, and then the main characters who you encounter constantly get no introduction. It's like "oh go say hi to Queen so and so and do her some favors" and I'm like "queen so and so? Who the fuck is she and what's she even *queen* of?"

So I'm left with gameplay. It's... okay. About par for the course for a WoW clone. With some weird addenda like I can't select targets with a keypress. You either click on them or they propagate during combat. The UI is a mess.

I don't know. I may not actually play the game any more. Which blows. I am almost positive I won't play past the first month.

I think that's what pisses me off the most. I bought this game 1 to play with my friends but 2 because they pitched it as not really being a fantasy game, but so far 8 hours in and it's basically a fucking fantasy game.

hmm, sounds like a lot of fucking going on...

so not good for kids then.

very disappointing to read about The Order: 1886, as it was one of my more anticipated PS4 titles i was looking forward to... if it's really targeted 30 fps then i can scratch it off the list. the steampunk idea even though hasn't been done in an fps game is still pretty unoriginal.

Also, put Shadows on High instead of Ultra. Fixes the lag.

except it really puts the quality of the shadows down when you set it to high. they become blurry. check the tweak guide to see.

So is the industry going to take this as a lesson that highly polished game releases are much less important than a glorified but misleading PR campaign? Did this unfinished release damage their rep with gamers?


Ubisoft's reputation for highly optimized PC versions never existed, so it can't really be damaged. They've always preferred the kitchen sink method for their PC versions. Lots of feature support, tons of options and tweaks, but no real time spent on optimization.

Their attitude is that people can turn the settings down or buy better hardware. It's a lazy attitude for them to take, but it's not a new one.

well i'm at least glad they support the PC platform to do a PC simul-launch for a console game such as this. they could be like R* and wait forever to release a PC port of GTA5, or maybe not even at all...
