Not bad games so far just a little disappointing. Mostly a casual x com like affair, quite a narrow story / choice cone. A bit too simplistic and easy to often for my tastes

Great games. Awful voiceovers. Don't even think about playing without others.

It's a stopgap at best. Pc gamers hate it, new gen console gamers play it because there is nothing better yet.

The 10:1 PC gamer ratio makes me giggle.

Surely there aren't many chumps over the age of 12 that actually want a plastic pip boy thing and even fewer that would actually wear it

I do truly love video games, I just never quite understand the appeal of the plastic tat that sometimes gets packaged with it.
To me, it's like collecting the toys from breakfast cereal boxes.

Why was there never an AO2? This was easily the best sci-fi/tech/cyberpunk MMO. It's almost sad that it still is...

@osc8r - I completely agree. Hots seems very shallow. The skill curve is so mild that it feels like there's nothing new to see after a days play, which is unfortunate as i usually enjoy blizzard games. That said I've never been a big DOTA2 fan and haven't played LoL in years. Smite is easily the best game in the genre imo but the genre as a whole could do with shaking up a little.

I don't believe Hots/Babys first MOBA is the one to do it. And definitely not with such an insane money-grabbing pricing model.

I think a major part of what keeps people hanging on is the driver platform is the same since vista really. They could err forcibly drop driver support for older windows releases and people would upgrade to 10 pretty sharpish

Also they're gonna have to make it really clear that Xbone can't play OR games or there are going to be a lot of confused console gamers considering it struggles with 30fps 900p

I did have FUN with this game but just like Titanfall, after I'd played for a day I'd seen all it had to offer. There is literally just no depth, it was all super simple to make it 'easy-access' for the console crowd... but that's it, there is barely any skill curve and most games with experienced players (D)EVOLVE into hide and seek and it was just painfully overhyped. Everyone thought this was going to be the game to finally replace L4D2.

Yeah it's leaps and bounds better than when it launched. DICE LA has done a really great job fixing it up, definitely worth checking out again. My only gripe these days is that they added "Classic Mode" (BF2 settings) too late after launch and there's not many servers for it :.(

Yeah the server settings has always been a problem, the issue is that if you run custom settings then you tend to get filtered out of peoples server searches and so less people play on your server which results in even less popularity With more relaxed filters it can be hard to tell at a glance if a server runs with noob settings like fast vehicle respawn.

I also agree that classic should have been a launch setting. I would have preferred to play it from the start for sure
(for those not in the know, Classic mode is similar to old BF games so no 3D spotting, no regenerating health, squad leader spawn only, no 3P vehicle cam, reloading is full clip)

I was very bitter after the sketchy release of BF3 and then again for BF4, but I have to hand it to DICE for trying to make things right.

Yeah the launch was godawful, but if you own the game you owe it to yourself to see whats changed. It is not perfect but it has come a long way.

I think this also brings night mode for some of the maps already in the game, I wonder what happened to the mystery "classic" remake map that they said they were working on.
http://bf4central.com/2015/03/battlefield-4-night-maps-patch/

Stoked for this patch. As flawed as BF4 is it is still easily the best team shooter we have at the moment. At least until Battlefront? (Fingers crossed)

yawn

anyone got a player count these days? seems like its heading to be a ghost town, won't help when they fragment an already ailing userbase with the new maps

Yeah, unsurprisingly on PC at least it is failing. It apparently appeals more to the new gen console users (or there is some kind of deal on so there has been a surge in purchases). I figure that'll die down quickly.

So they are pretending like the they care now in an effort to score more SW Battlefront preorders. Nice try, EA. Try again.

BF4 still has some issues but in their defence, they've been actively patching BF4 ever since the bad press it got at the start.
They have CTE (test) servers the public can use to use and vote on new features and they listen to community feedback. Also the fixes and changes used here actively affect their other new games that use Frostbite like BFH and Battlefront. So it's not just to hype their new game, it will hopefully make the launch and experience a smoother one.
Sometimes the new releases are a few months behind in terms of patches (things like netcode changes not being implemented was noticeable at BFH launch) but at least they are trying!

The netcode changes they are talking about are probably the new 120hz changes which will mean 4 times better hitreg (I hope)

Yep. Used to get accused of cheating all the time in CS because I was using A3D and boost others used EAX. Occlusion and reverb wasn't great but directional was amazing.

A good third party reusable sound tech is so many years overdue. Actually excited about this if it does end up working on standard hardware
