Well, that's misleading. They combined the xbox one and windows version of the Kinect into one box.

They've out priced the casual market (people like me), maybe I'll pick it up on a Steam sale but it would have to be a very good deal.

It seems the damage model is fine for hardcore, so called normal mode can be brutal if you're migrating from BF3/BF4. It's the other "tweaks" they need to do to hardcore mode like the missing squad player list and whatnot that they need to address.

Anyways, multiplayer? Instanced servers or PvP hosting? I imagine it's player hosted for the smaller co-op game modes perhaps? No anti-cheat? Are there any modes that are objective based or is it just Team Deathmatch city?

No chance of creating multiplayer mods I'm guessing.

The GTA4 engine was severely CPU limited in it's performance, and there is little reason to expect this to be any different. Upgrading your video card before seeing it in action will probably prove unnecessary.

@DangerDog - You should be installing DanielK drivers for that soundblaster card

thanks, pretty sure those are for the older audigy cards. I have the OEM Soundblaster Z PCIe version.

GMG has had deals on it (with coupon codes) but I don't know if any are active atm.

I bought it, am upset they nerfed hardcore mode. It's just normal with no map / spotting. Still takes 4-5 rounds to kill, I'm use to hardcore being realistic, not conquest with no map.

Hardcore mode is so hardcore you don't even get to see who is in your squad!

I can't imagine anyone wanting even faster TTK than what's already in the game.

Won't the x86 architecture prevent a shoddy release? Maybe I don't understand.

Xbox 1 / PS4 are x86, the same as a PC. Aside from the improvements, isn't the game optimized already for PC? GTA 4 was made for PS3, and Xbox (separately due to the cell cpu I believe) and the PC port (x86) was separate from those. Poor optimization of the PC version could be blamed.

But how is it possible with x86 systems running it well? I think I am confused or not getting it. Am I mistaken in the basics? I'm no programmer, this is all wiki driven essentially.

You have more overhead on a PC, then there's the bazillion different configurations and driver versions you need to address, not to mention the people who have way too many programs running in the background on their systems, anti-virus programs alone probably cause more gaming performance loss than anything else.

You can have two people with seemingly identical hardware specs but on one the game will throw DX errors and crash while it runs just fine on the other. (blame the game? blame the user?)

I recently did a rebuild of my OS install, thought it would be a good idea to refresh all my drivers etc. Installed the very latest version of soundcard drivers (SoundBlaster Z) and noticed that some sounds weren't playing in Battlefield Hardline, down graded my drivers to the ones I had been using on my previous OS install and like magic everything works just fine again.

Good game design

In BF4 you had the whole "phantom program" where people had to decode secret messages in order to unlock skins and weapons - well the bow anyway. I think they saw this as a great success and wanted to emulate it for some of the weapon unlocks. Of course people are going to boost their way to getting them once the details are discovered. In BF4 you had servers dedicated as "no kill" zones looking for these hidden random dog tags on maps.

They've said that they intend to make it easier to get the achievements needed for the weapons but people will probably still want to boost their way to completing the objectives.

I don't mind meta games for unlocks but it's all on them for making them so retarded difficult to get.

When an easter egg is more OP than all vehicles in the game... what does that tell us about the game?

Not only that, but wtf is a couch doing as a vehicle in the first place? How much retardery do they got going on over there at EA?

I think they were trying really hard to capture the vibe of GTA games where you have people doing odd-ball stuff like racing down mountains in grocery carts.

The game isn't bad but it's sort of turned into a bit of a flubbed release, at least on the PC. Too expensive, not everyone is on board with the fast time to kill damage model, some of the weapon unlock grinds are so stupid that people have actually created "no kill" servers where all you do is drive around the maps in cars gaining XP and maxing out a "perk" system that's just about impossible to do otherwise because the rounds end too fast.

I think there's more people doing that in game than are actually playing the game objective.

Watch GTA V at 60FPS in a video that's playing at 30FPS.

I'm excited, another GTA game that I'll only manage to get about 1/3 through before moving on to another game.

Once all the DLC is in place, and there's a GOTY version, I'll pick this up. It'll be a good $10 purchase.

You're welcome to it but after playing the alpha/beta I've seen all there is to really see in this game. After a couple of hours it turns into a struggle to keep playing.

The concept on paper sounds decent enough but somewhere along the line they screwed it up in the design process. Imagine a 3D version of Rampage, being able to destroy an entire city filled with people you can step on, eat or burn to a crisp.

PvP matchmaking, most likely without host migration either.

always a recipe for disaster on the PC, at least the cheats are built in.

GTA V need another delay announcement.

Watch. 3 days before release. "Sorry! Sorry! We gotta do it again. See you in June! :D"

Is ARMA 3 worth buying?

Arma 3? It's more a combined arms simulator than a game, you need a beefy rig to run it. Don't expect a normal FPS configuration, spacebar won't make you jump - there's no jump in the sim/game. If you want to get over a fence you use a "vault" command that plays an animation of your avatar stepping over something. To enjoy multiplayer you'll need to join a community that uses teamspeak when playing - more so with Arma than other shooters.

Best advice is to go watch some Youtube videos to get an idea if it's something you'll want to invest the time into.

I recall Brink having performance issues on ATI graphics cards, by the time they sorted it out the players had quit playing the game.

They should just release it for free, might be able to fill up that one lonely server left online.
