correct. if people are hellbent on playing solo in this game, then they can do so with whatever server checks it requires, which i can't see being more bandwidth than loading 9 pages of this lolthread. and even if they played multiplayer, bandwidth in videogames is remarkably small. a voip app carries way more data. so even if you're literally in the bottom %1 of internet speeds, you'll be just fine. you should probably worry more about how the hell you're going to download the game in the first place.

I know you aren't this obtuse. You don't see the difference between browsing the internet and maintaining a constant connection to keep the game stable? You don't understand that someone with a spotty connection could read blues, even download the game, but get kicked out of the game constantly because of disconnects? You haven't seen any of the studies on net coverage and how shitty some areas are across North America? No not a submarine or jungle or desert base on the other side of the world, actual towns on this continent. You don't understand that a game is far more sensitive to internet issues than a browser is? You compare it to voip's needs but only talk about the data throughput, you don't acknowledge how signal instability can lead to a frustrating experience with broken words and other audio abnormalities and how that too can be a comparison. After the public backlash that Ubi, EA and Microsoft all received for their online only singleplayer schemes at various points in the past you still think it doesn't actually affect anyone?

Scratch that last part you defended EA during the SimCity online-only mess too. You had similar responses back then, anyone who had an issue you said was lying or it's too niche to matter.

Technical stuff aside maybe someone wanted to play this game down the road again a decade or more later. Unless Frontier changes their plans it's permanently dead when the servers go down. Or maybe people wanted offline so they could have produced or used mods, as PC gamers tend to do. Modders have made some awesome stuff in the past, rivaling or even sometimes exceeding the quality of the content that ships with the games. A total conversion pack to one of the popular sci-fi IP's would have been pretty great in this engine. Those plans are shot. I noticed you brought up gay marriage as a comparison earlier. Funny thing about that, part of the solution is people who are not personally affected by the laws sympathizing with those who are. I'm happy it doesn't affect you. But I'm also sorry for the people who will be affected for technical reasons, or for those who backed it because of the offline mode promise for various reasons. Hopefully Frontier acts honorably when it comes to refunds over the next few weeks.

We go from AC2 kicking you out of the game if your connection drops to AC Unity gimping your framerate if your connection works. The more of this shit they pull off the less I buy.

Another game that, despite having a single player mode, will be unplayable the day they decide to shut down the servers. When will that happen? Can't trust their answer to that now. They might have been able to salvage the good will they built up if they handled it better. Such a shame.

Yeah that doesn't really mean shit, the board of directors is about as useful as the crown chair at the CRTC doing a proper job instead of the miles of bureaucracy under them, where decades of industry insider have stacked them.

Yeah, no. You can't make the case that despite controlling the top officers and the budget that they are somehow powerless. Not after all the other depts with similar legacy that have been gutted and rebuilt. If you don't like the way things are now it's because the people the govt hired to run it aren't doing their job.

Not when it won't investigate a lack of ethics in journalism, all because that's not a good enough story for them. The CBC works for the Liberal and NDP parties.

Video game reporting isn't journalism. Noone but a minority of gamers cares about it. Might as well ask them to investigate Entertainment Tonight.

By "protect" they mean they'll make sure the data only gets into the hands of the people that are paying them.

The conservative govt controls the CBC purse strings and it's board of directors were completely replaced with conservative loyalists. If you have issues with it talk to your boss.

And yes it serves a purpose in an era where corporations have bought out and gutted the medias traditional role as watchdog.

For the 3 people with a WiiU the first DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 is out today. And if you're also an F-Zero fan there's a brief respite from the limbo the series has been stuck in.

Play AC 2, Brotherhood and Revelations, skip 3, play Black Flag.

I'd recommend watching the story bits of 3 on youtube as there are significant plot elements in the real world storyline you'll miss otherwise (though they've apparently abandoned that plotline wholesale now).

Neither. The game isn't optimized for shit. On PC or consoles. The end.

If the framerate drops to single digits on consoles you think the PC port was better handled? It wasn't. It's a mess. It's "pushing things forward" as you say, but with square wheels.

Hope this colossal clusterfuck isn't an indication of FC4's launch, too

As long as you have your Quad SLI Geforce QTX980000000, a recent Intel Quantum CPU and a decent fusion power supply it should run close to 60FPS.

And if those games were on Steam, they would have sold even more. You can't argue that Steam isn't the largest distributor of PC games and you can't argue that being on Steam wouldn't increase sales.

You'll need to provide evidence that a significant number of gamers will completely boycott Origin only releases before you can argue it would hurt sales. The few people here who do so are not a meaningful statistic.

A Republican from New York who faces 20 criminal charges, and was heard on camera threatening to throw a guy off a balcony, and was shunned by his own party during the campaign, won his House seat. I just don't see how something like that can be considered a win, even with heavy partisanship. How the hell does someone like that get elected? This isn't even a left vs right thing, the flag he runs under is meaningless in the end if he's a crook. I feel for you guys down there.

Actually, shouldn't XB1 be able to run at full 1080x1920? Because cloud?

You imply it is limited to 1080. The cloud is infinite. It can download all the resomolutions! The cost is merely your soul. Behold the cloud and it's terrible wrath!

At least they're admitting they've decided to go evil. That's something. I guess? Probably not.
