On one hand I'm glad that people aren't falling all over themselves to adopt Microsoft's so called "modern UI" applications and the walled garden created to distribute them, but on the other hand It's all rather silly because you can tweak Windows 8.1 to completely ignore that side of the OS and use it just like you do Windows 7, start menu and all.

Newsflash, DICE broke more shit than they fixed with this "patch".

I know, shocking right?

Wonderful. I was hoping to play a little tonight. Figures.

Some of it isn't game breaking some of it is, spawning on your squadmate in a tank will crash your game apparently.

It would be fun to tear into the graphic files and 3d models to see how un-optimized they are.

It'll be interesting to see head to head benchmarks with Nvidia and ATI cards now but even if the 290/x pulls ahead all that heat and noise just isn't worth it.

Just from looking at that single frame I'd say the one on the right was the new and improved version. The lighting, the detail on the lips and you can see individual eye lashes and more detail in the eyes. Overall just looks much better.

rumor mill says release is end of march

I could see a next-gen console release before a PC version comes out.

News Comments > EA Taking Lessons From Launching BF4

EA DICE used to use Combattesting.com for proper beta testing and bug tracking, it's mostly an invite only unpaid testing service but many people would properly report bugs and issues and provide feedback. I believe now they've handed the task over to some Romanian outfit and the results are showing how big of a mistake that is.

It really doesn't help when you have the people responsible for making the game go off on extended vacations right at release.

Life without EA, what would that be like?

I have a sizable amount of games that they publish.

I just got it a week ago, so this works great for me.

Annoying running around with a BB gun to start with, while everyone else has the equivalent of a "machine gun rocket launcher "

Some of the starting guns are the best ones in the game, it's usually the addition of attachments that give you a slight edge.

I could use the all pistols unlock one, too lazy to play in a pistol only server.

If the next patch breaks more than it fixes this will be the end of the great BF4 experiment.

News Comments > Titanfall Beta Plans Confirmed

No technical details on the PC version, FOV adjustment, anti-cheat protection, other graphical detail settings. Only thing confirmed is no mod tools (duh) and it'll be match-making on instanced servers hosted by microsoft.

It's not going to be a lengthy "single player" campaign, the multiplayer maps (however many there are) are strung together and you play them 2x, once for each faction. They're re-purposed for different multiplayer modes. Will they "Season Pass" it with extra content? Probably.

Update to Source engine is way overdue.

Haven't they been continually updating it over the years, adding new bits of technology to it? Get rid of the damn loading screens and I'll be happy with it.

The last major upgrade that I can think of was the "Lost Coast" level for HL2. Left for Dead 2 seemed pretty rough around the edges in terms of detail.

wait a minute...

I get seasick playing FPS games because of the FOV? I could play them again if I could adjust the FOV? Here I thought it was just me getting old. Is there some sort of magic number or is it different for different people?

FOV is only part of the equation, you also have to take into account any "head bob" animations that some games have when you're moving. A setting of 85 to 90 is the most often choice when sitting at a desk with a monitor an arms reach away.

FOV is not a design choice

It's a design choice in so much as it's designed for consoles and PC versions are an afterthought. I'm hoping they're not going to neglect the PC but these are the same guys who made Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 I assume.

Wow, a whole FIVE days of Beta?

It's all EA's fault Laugh

I bet they haven't even put in a FOV adjustment for the PC version.

I'd be surprised if it doesn't have a few graphics options, fov included. It's the source engine, after all. I'd guess valve has been very cooperative with the development of this game.

The 360 version is almost guaranteed to be the most stable. That's where they're hoping to make their hay.


Not having a FOV adjustment is a design decision, not a graphic engine one. If they designed all the assets around 65 fov and setting it higher breaks the animations where you can see into parts of the arms or gun animations then it won't be a quick fix to add in a patch. They also have pre-scripted animations for getting into titans and what not, all of which could break if you set the fov to 90. We'll see, I'll wait for an official announcement on PC specific bells and whistles.
