Microsoft has no choice in the matter. Having said that, I wouldn't be putting Windows10 on anything legal, beta, or otherwise unless I see their 100,000x faster DirectX or whatever ridiculous claim they have been making...

Microsoft never made that claim. If I say Eli Manning is a better quarterback than Tom Brady, are the Giants making that claim?

Giants can't make claims, they are fictional monsters. If I used fictional monsters in my reply, would anyone take my response seriously? Sarcasticclap

Microsoft made the DX12 improvement claims, go look it up. We don't need ridiculous common-sense followups - save those for the newborns and save us from thinking you're one of them.

I don't really see the issue with a third-person game being better on a controller. Everything feels much tighter as far as button spacing is concerned.

Only platforming games can be considered 'superior' on a controller for the most part, and even then it's due to the focus on controller that makes it so -- any game competently designed with mouse and keyboard is superior in every aspect.

Now I know people may be more comfortable on a controller, and that's fine - for consoles. For PC, if you can't come up with a "superior" control scheme with a mouse/keyboard, you just don't care to do so.

So in those cases, glad to pass! I don't give developers an inch when it comes to controls, FOV, resolution, or frame locks on the PC port. If any of them fail to "do it right" I refuse to buy and make it known for other PC gamers.

...word that the game will get a day one patch and that playing the game with a controller felt superior to playing with a mouse and keyboard.

Soon as I saw that, I realized it was most of your worst fears - a crap port.

Ignorant consolized lines like that give me an automatic savings in my wallet for a game I hoped would improve upon the last ones...

Could never get into POE. Not a bad game, but in the end it does not even hold a candle to Diablo II.

Having played D2 for a decade and PoE extensively, i couldnt disagree more.

^This.

I've been playing PoE now for over 3 years and nothing comes close - it's the real deal for ARPG fans whether you see it or not.

I'm not so dedicated to the HC league even though I have all my wealth there, the 4mo races are just too good...

Game is crap, devs are no-shows. From performance, controls, fov you name it it's poorly done. Maybe at one point they were 'really trying' to make it a good game, but somewhere along they way they said "fuck it, lets sell it and move on".

I'm pretty sure it has to do with patience and the degree of how much you care. I understand the concept of requirements to ware certain armors or use certain spells, but -- while I cannot remember the details -- if I remember correctly in those games it wasn't just Strength or Intel but a whole bunch of other shit that wouldn't make sense to anyone who hadn't sat on a D&D table or devoured the manual.

Right.
THACO

That is what I'm hoping is improved upon, I'm almost certain they will be since those things were from a bygone era and pc gaming has evolved.

I should start asking questions about the game, like:
Is there scripting for your NPC's on your team like BG?
What type of auto-pause options are there?
Are there combat speed sliders? (D:OS need that desperately)

This is part of why I'm not a K-razy Pause Based system player. If your game has pause base, then you need to know about these things, because they are tremendous aids for control and not being a total burden. It is about managing a fight. Or do you say F it, play on easy and just play the game in pure real-time? Now that is one reason I like Pause, you basically can have two different combat engines, one pure real, the other pause tactics throughout.

FWIW back in DDO. I swear that is the only MMO that can do it for me, but right back to a large learning curve which I'm pretty much past, but I always think "Man how many people just quit it because of all these rules to understand?". They could make a DDO 2 and just make a lot of the rules systems much more common and not touch the rest, well and have another large expansion added. The dungeons/interactivity is the special sauce for this game, and a nice slice of unique character builds.

But mechanics and number crunching in this game, it takes some time and for a newbie, real patience.

I've always been a huge fan of in-depth mechanics for my rpg turn/pause based games -- the closer they were to ADnD, the more I enjoyed them for the most part. Since DnD set the standard, it's better to go with what the majority already are familiar with then "redesign the wheel". DDO is really the only good DnD game out there, I still fire it up once in awhile.

I'm pretty open minded regardless, but gameplay has to be solid.

As for combat timers, I use cheatengine's speedhack on D:OS, I have absolutely no patience these days, so I always speed up the running, cutscenes, etc on games I can use it on.

Never played D:OS coop -- I don't do coop unless it's something we can do for short bursts with immediate gratification gameplay (shooters, castle crashers, dungeon defenders - these type of games).

I prefer to be totally absorbed in my RPGs alone that are greater than skin deep, take my time reading, trying things out, just veg and enjoy it.

Best game of 2014? Divinity Original Sin by far.

Dragon age is just a bunch of great story voiceover actors around a generic gameplay.

All a bunch of shit.

Internet speed difference in the US compared to the "rest of the world" is negligible, tends to be higher speeds, cheaper price, and more realistic choice.

More importantly, the same "problems" exist everywhere (big cities vs outlying farms etc) in the world, at least here we DO have 3 larger companies vying for your business in many cases, not even taking into consideration the huge increase in subscriber wireless broadband.

The article is based on bullshit that so many people simply suck down because common sense is gone and they refuse to do the 20 minutes of research it takes to find out.

You'll have plenty of time to do nothing when you're dead. In fact, nothingness will last quite a bit longer than your life that you've lived, up to now - including the short time that remains. So don't worry, you'll be doing a lot of nothing for an eternity -- sooner or later.

No you won't because nothing ever really dies. That energy, those atoms, etc. are all used in other things. I don't know what but I think there is something "more". Reincarnation, after a fashion, is most likely. It would explain a lot.

Jean Luc Picard on Death



It's the equivalent of saying, "Gravity is evident, for an object falls to the ground." Another person interjects, "No, that's not true, the object is falling toward the ground. The ground is lying on top of a liquid core with shifting land, and that land is on a planet orbiting a sun which itself is rotating millions of miles in a solar system that is spinning within a galaxy .. that galaxy is spinning in a vast cosmos -- so the object is really spinning in hundreds if not thousands of different directions and not actually falling."

On macro-cosmic perspective perhaps there is no 'death', but on a micro-singular-level, relative to the context of one's extremely limited perspective, death is the end of one's known existence -- or in this case consciousness as we know it -- or to refine it further: you will lose your identity; you will no longer be you.

Bob if you posted like this more often no one would care about the weather comments Well said.

It's rare for me and never lasts long, but lucid dreaming will make you pause a bit - it's your conscious mind popping into your sub-conscience dream and controlling your own personal fantasy land for a little bit. The more improbable things you try to do will usually "wake" you up.

Truth is there's very little we understand about ourselves, let alone the universe.

Love ARPGs. Love FPSs. Love FPS ARPGs...

Yet I'm entirely sick of borderlands since about a year or so ago.

Go persistent with a proper economy or go home.
