I absolutely hate that stunt they pulled. But if it was a map, you'd have entire game sessions that would be exclusive to pre-order players. That would suck even more. At least now the hunters can still hunt the pre-order monster player. So it's not like battlefield with jetpacks, but more like battlefield with an exclusive type of tank.

Don't get me wrong, it's the reason for me not to buy it day one as well. Just know that exclusive maps would have been worse, or exclusive human soldiers. I'd be jealous as fuck if I had been in a team with some awesome cyberninja. At least now all I do is kill that exclusive monster.

Evolve is getting sweet reviews there. The beta ran smooth as butter on my GTX680 i5 3.5ghz so to me it seems well optimized. Couldn't get past the tutorial, though, because it seems my beta only lasted 1 evening -_-

Another one bites the dust.


All I see you "calling" is names like a two year old as usual. Calling me a liar, like somehow I was the one who wrote the article that hurt your feelings.



How the fuck can you agree with a review about a game you haven't played?!

I think DA:I was a fantastic game with a great atmosphere. Most side-quests were bad and the main story was too short compared with the filler content. I had no issues with combat. But I'm the type of player that doesn't want combat to be challenging the entire time.

Sure, the first reviewers were waterdrunk after the long drought we experienced on good RPGs.. But this reviewer just sounds like a spoiled kid who never thinks anything was good after he got sated.

When Dying Light slows down when a zombie grabs you, it's because a whole new and way more detailed zombie face has to be rendered. I don't know if that's poor optimization or a logical side-effect but they could "fix" it easily by allowing the player to disable the detailed zombie facce. I'd be ok with the zombie looking the way it does when it's not grabbing you.

The game still runs weird and crappy on my i5 3,5ghz GTX680. I don't get it. Can anyone tell me how I can tell if the bottleneck is the GPU or the CPU? I'll try the CPU affinity tweak later. If it's my CPU I guess the tweak should make a diff.

Pretty sure it's the CPU. You should overclock it and see if that helps. My i5 is clocked at 4.4 GHz and the game runs pretty decently (50-60 FPS average). You should definitely stay away from Very High shadow quality, as that killed performance on my 670. High seems to run fine.

Hadn't played the whole weekend and yesterday it installed a patch. It did miracles for my performance!! I also did the core affinity tweak for the hell of it and now the game runs like a charm with everything on High except Shadows and View Distance at like 25% or something.

Game is brought to its knees when I catch the bile from those fucking annoying spitters and my screen goes green and blurry. -_-

Those prices. See what they did there xD

I want this game. We're all hypocrites and liars and sinners one way or another. I can flirt with the idea of getting antagonized by the antagonist

GTX 680

Turned view distance to 50%. Shadows to low. Performance is still off. Sporadic changes in framerate. To me, this is a telltale sign of obvious performance issues not per se related to hardware.

Weird, I have a 670 with shadows set to medium and view distance set to 40% and I get a pretty constant 60 FPS (except for a weird drop when zombies are grappling me). For me, shadow resolution and view distance were easily the biggest drains on performance. I also have a i5 3570K OC'ed to 4.4 GHz and from what I hear, CPU speed has a large impact on performance.

Same i5, but not OC'ed. I'll tinker around with that come weekend!

Everything maxed, shadows in low, runs great.

Shadows high / medium? The lag/chop everyone talks about. Lower shadows it plays great, no big loss on appearance.

Thanks for the advice! Will try it immediately on my GTX 680.

Performance is rotten outside. Inside, random fps drops. Optimization doesn't seem to have a deadline anymore, ffs. Would've waited for some performance fixes if I wasn't bored as fuck!

"Lets frag like its 1999" makes great sense and promise in everything they show EXCEPT for the goddamn vehicles!

Either make a tribes wannabe, or a UT/Quake wannabe if you want to succeed in that 1999 feel.

Maybe I'm wrong -- haven't played it! -- but I really think those vehicles are a wast . It removes that personal feel: You didn't just lose a fight against this annoyingly good Master1337, but just a hovertank.

In my experience it's always good to buy the high end version of a GPU tier (like the GTX 680, 780 and in this case 980). You have to be patient and pounce on a good sale once you see it but with those cards you can last out much longer. Again, that's my experience.

Waiting for a good GTX 980 deal.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March
26. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March Jan 21, 2015, 15:29 Quinn
 
I find this good news. I really enjoyed ESO a lot. When I stopped my subscription I did so because of a few singleplayer games came out (like Watch_Dogs), with the idea of subscribing again afterwards. But after being out of it for more than a month, 14 euros felt like a lot of money for a game I had already played and spent 80+ hours on already. Still, I always had that urge to play it again -- just not for 14 euros a month.

Yay, I say!

Game was too easy -- I never died, so the nemesis system kinda didn't make any fucking sense -- the story was uninteresting, after 20 minutes you knew everything the game had to offer, exploration was a waste of time unless you're a loredigger and achievement completionist.

People screaming GOTY is good for them, but fuck me if games like these become the new thang.. I'll have to find a new hobby. Biggest waste of my money in 2014.

I bought H1Z1, but can't play it because you can't even remap your controls. ?!?!?!?!?!? *facepalm*

So far they are failing hard at basic game design, not off to a good start.

People like you are the problem with PC Gaming today. Early access....Geez!

Are...are you trying to defend a massive company's a use of a system designed for struggling independent developers? There's no reason SOE should be releasing a game that isn't feature-complete. I still don't understand people buying unfinished games, especially with the incredible number of them that have sat in EA for over a year, several of high have stopped getting updates.
You wouldn't be happy to pay for the first half of a movie, with the ending arriving...sometime. Maybe. Or half of any other product, for that matter. Why are people excited to pay for half of a game?

You're asking the question, man. Early Access: WHY?! It's like watching a movie without it being edited -- it's always a crappier experience than watching the finished movie, and yet you have to watch the crappier version over and over again. Once the movie is finished and out, you bled it dry.

I wouldn't get too excited yet.
Recommended doesn't mean run everything at max settings at 60fps
We'll see when the game comes out.

That's true, but more often than not it's a good indication. Hell, "not everything at max" to me usually means just taking the AA a nodge down and on some rare occasions putting Shadows on Very High instead of Ultra.

Having good faith in it with these recommended specs! But, as you said... we'll see.

As for the "at this time" comment 2 weeks ago... To me that's just the typical, smug Rockstar attitude -- like 14 year olds who think they're being witty.
