I don't purchase ANY fps/tfps etc game if the frames are capped at any speed. I play FPS's at 120+ these days and I ain't ever going back.

I didn't want to watch the Divinity stream, but man am I glad I did - that editor holy shit -- looks way better than I'd hoped!!

Looks like it's going to blow NWN's editor out of the water...

News Comments > Team Fortress 2 Love & War Patch Released

For all the variety TF2 has with characters and weapons, it's one of the most balanced FPS games in all of FPS's history.

I can destroy (to the point many rage quit) with every class, the only ones I don't like playing are the engi and heavy - the engi is hands-off auto, the heavy is for 'winning' - and I don't like to win or sit back in my games, I like to kick your ass.

Pubs = facestomp. Clanning, different story.

The campaign in Divinity's early access is about 20% of the game (at least it was a couple months ago, the game might be even bigger by now), and I shit you not you can spend a game's-worth of hours just playing around with characters till you find a combo you like the most.

The campaign can be played however you like, and it's heavily story based. Initially I paid attention to all the conversations (heck you can even disagree and argue with your own party memebers, who then get different character bonus's based on how *you* think they would respond).

After a few play-throughs I just tried to be as creative as possible with the engine, training the city with orcs, surrounding npc's with flammables, reloading loots, poisoning the locals, burning down locked doors, all kinds of stuff you can do. I cannot WAIT for the mod editor - that will just put the game into epic status.

Hell, me and Horrorscope were talking the other night, I recognized his name and we're all in global chat - how's that for cool... You'll love it man I'm tellin ya.

All Atari needed as a "comeback strategy" was to make ONE good DND game in all the years they ran with the IP.

Now with their new strategy, they can appeal to the 2% LGBT of the world because they see it has 60% of the current headlines, and try to get blood from the stones, aka chronic gamblers...

Dumbasses...

We were too busy making these great guns worse.
TF2 as an idea and in presentation is fantastic. TF2 as a game is absolutely terrible these days.

Couldn't be farther from the truth. It's one of the only really enjoyable FPS's out there if you aren't a CODrone.

If you don't already own Divinity: Original Sin, that's an absolute no-brainer purchase - jump on it.

Has that come out yet? I thought it was still in development.

It's early access still. I'm waiting til it comes out, I swore off all early access and Kickstarter stuff no matter the pedigree of the devs. Hopefully it'll be great as expected but I don't mind waiting and paying an extra little bit of money.

The release date is still set for June 30, 11 days from now. If you're planning to get it at release, might as well grab it now and take advantage of the discount.

Yea the game will be released on the 30th, editor sometimes afterwards. The game itself is incredibly fun, kind of a mashup between Baldurs Gate and oldschool might and magic games, but with one of the most enjoyable 'environment' engine I've ever played (physics, item interaction/reaction, elements, etc) - lots of freedom & strategy and designed to be completely mod-able. The single player game has an in-game chat system that anyone can participate in, really adds something special and it's being kept in release. Such a minor thing yet adds so much while playing.

I have very little patience for redoing content, but its been a joy every patch (they break the saves) since everything is so varied and done so well - I've done the intro mission/early content about 6 times and I have absolutely no patience for that kinda stuff normally.

The community is overwhelmingly positive, just read the forums -- It's worth a check if you like RPGs.

Looks same ole same to me -- a standard Witcher game with Geralt as usual.

I like the IP, and I'm sure the game will be good, but I didn't see anything special. What is it you guys liked so much?

I wasn't impressed with BF4 at all, but something about the new Hardline is immensely fun and satisfying even if I'm stating so within the honeymoon period of beta.

News Comments > Destiny Still Destined for PCs?

Can't blame companies to go where they perceive the money to be, but I don't put them on my favorite list when they sell out to consoles with exclusives. Wanna play both sides (like Rockstar), fine we'll accept your strategy of release dates. Wanna 'exclusive' (like Bungie), no thank you we don't want you -- it's very likely you'll have consolitis should you return anyway.

Besides, when it was first announced eons ago (aka "pc dying fad") they had absolutely no intention to develop it for PC. I'll be glad to keep them to their word and never buy it on PC.

I also couldn't care less about a the half-ass FPS Halo or it's derivatives (console fannies will go nuts here, but it's a fact -- just a vanilla FPS that works as well as it can on sub-par FPS controllers).

All they accomplished was to be one of first to do "FPS's" well on a console, nothing special beyond that and its very effective hype-machine.

When I think of bungie, I think of MTFL (and even Oni, I friggin loved that game). The first halo on was 'ok', but most of us were too busy clanning in dedicated FPS's or losing sleep during the heydays of MMOs...

There was a time not long ago that alpha/beta was based entirely on an application process that asked the right questions, and if you got in and didn't participate in the way you were expected then you were revoked access -- that's the only way to get 'dedicated' testers - and it worked a treat.

Now as for Divinity Original Sin... cannot.. I say.. I say.. I cannot wait! Game is gonna be huge.

Yes Danielle Riendeau... you feel everyone everywhere needs to pander to the liberal whim of ethnic equality representation.

So you'd certainly agree that the Han Chinese, Hindustani, Arabs and Bengalis need to be first and foremost represented in the future in everything, everywhere if it involves a "world audience appreciation" since they far outnumber every other ethnicity in the world we live in.

Magica was truly original and very fun, really the only two requirements that will always jiggle my wallet bone with new IPs.

So yes I'll nab the 2nd, even if *wars* so far has seemed terribly abandoned.

Just what pc indies need - to 'sign on' with deep pockets and a loud blowing mouth.

He basically makes the point that there's 'tons' of PC indies and they'll need the backing of large publishers to "get noticed".

Load of bullshit - do what you do, throw some money into smart advertising and if you have a solid fun game you won't be restricted creatively by some number crunching suits...
