I wonder if these forecasts take self-built PC's into account or they're just looking at off the shelf boxes.

As long as they don't remove the ability to use start menu replacements like startisback by brute force then I don't care what they do with their metro app full screen start menu bullshit.

If there was a way to completely purge the metro side I'd do it but otherwise I'll just continue to ignore that aspect of the OS. The micro improvements on the desktop are worth the tiny bit of extra hassle and cost in tweaking windows 8.1 to be desktop focused rather than touch/metro focused.

I give their dig little chance of success, some things should just be left to legend true or not.

It's probably also bad juju for Microsoft to be doing this, seems like every reporter on the internet wants to stick a fork in the console project known as "xbox one".

Atari signed their death stroke when they turned down the deal to sell the NES under the Atari name in the U.S. It just snowballed downhill from there.

Oh, and they're already working on Battlefield 5 - it'll be a police themed Battlefield made by Visceral Games, and of course there's the Star Wars Battlefront game too.

police...themed battlefield, lol?

operation metro almost feels like some sort of cops vs robbers scene already.

Having several hundred hours of game time in BF4 I've gotten my money's worth even with the purchase of Premium. I just wish they would spend a little more time testing their patches, there's plenty of people from the community that would take the plunge into testing them before wide release. It's still my go to shooter, warts and all.

When they overheard that Respawn was making a Sci-Fi shooter they tried to pull a "Us too!" but didn't get the full memo apparently.

Yes please.

Why do people say the Gunplay is like COD, when its not? Not on the PC any way.

Neither is the player movement, thank god. It doesn't feel anything like the usual Source game from valve either.

Wow. I didn't like the game before, but that's pretty ludicrous for what I've seen.

supposedly the beta did not include hi-res textures

supposedly it actually did

https://twitter.com/VinceZampella/status/439496742871269376

maybe the dlc is already in the install waiting to unlock or something? I just can't see why it's so damn big. I expect this to be a one month wonder, the size alone dictates that the next big game to come along most people will need to delete this to make room, especially on xbox one with it's puny hard drive.

The only question now is when BF5 is released, will they be starting here and moving forward? Or two steps back first?

Visceral Games is making a Police themed battlefield game, I'm halfway expecting low player numbers and instanced servers aka Titanfall type setup.

Point and spam your fire button. Yay.

C'mon, now is the time for new types of pc games! The "been there done that" days should be over by now.

or it's a throwback to the era of the most fun shooters like Doom, Quake and Unreal.

Must have missed it, I only read something about not being able to buy EA games on the cheap from India, they raised the prices I guess.

Seems like they could just region lock their games if they wanted to.

Now I want to play Syndicate. I'm tempering my expectations here so I'm not disappointed.


I would recommend against getting Syndicate, I bought it on discount thinking how bad could it be - Starbreeze left it in a buggy state and pointed the finger at EA as being the bad guy but I blame Starbreeze. At one point the game actually looked decent then at the last minute they added in a bunch of blur and bloom filters effects that you can't turn off, the FOV is locked to something like 65 - game checks FOV on every frame.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvbBkLy4wIA

Still not sure how they went from making a solid FPS game like Riddick to this crap of a game.

edit: didn't see this before, a working FOV adjustment.

that would help a little.

Hmm so you played all, from ARMA , BF, Planetside 2, Warframe, Defiance and all rest and this shit is the only one you like ??

ARMA is a slow paced man simulator void of any decent pvp multiplayer. BF is fun but the never ending beta status has really taken a toll on the number of people left playing. I couldn't get into Planetside 2 just herds of players zerging around the maps capturing bases - which were really poorly designed, something that I've noticed they're trying to address with the latest update. Warframe, 3rd person shooter? - yeah, no thanks.

There's more to like about Titanfall than there is to hate, it's not so fast paced that it's only for people with ADHD yet intense enough that leaves you with that "just one more game" feeling at 1am.

I can see why people would hate on the casual aspect of it, and the randomness of the whole burn card system would drive all the e-sports people to bash their keyboard in. Respawn has a really good release window, nothing much on the horizon either - where the hell is GTA V for the PC???

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED IN PREVIOUS THREADS!

If you use a proxy for a game and purchase in Mexico for Origin - you will make your account no longer able to add games. There are a ton of reddit threads about it, and I assume that thread also tells you that. They are cracking down on regions.

I have?

oh well, if I have to create a new origin account ~ whatever.

it's not that far off from what cd keys are going for

It's a fun, casual, fast paced shooter. The call of duty comparisons is only on the surface, customizing your loadout, unlocking stuff. The rest is different enough to stand on its own, no stupid kill streaks, movement is fluid as any unreal tournament and not clunky like CoD. The parkour feels good and isn't so much of a gimmick like it was in "Brink".

It's priced too high but I only paid $40 for it which is more in line what it should be without there being a single player campaign. It's going to be bundled for free with xbox one's starting next month so I suspect EA will go after mass number of units sold and discount it heavily on the PC.

The texture complaints aren't an issue, the damn thing is 48gb install or some such. The option for "insane" textures wasn't enabled in the beta, you'll need 3gb of vram to use it though.

I thought the game would be "Titanfail" while looking at footage and how it looked dated, no destruction etc but after playing the beta it's sort of addicting, something you can get a quick shooter fix from without spending a ton of time trying to find a half way decent game like you do with Battlefield - only to be team switched half way through to the losing side from some autobalance script.

The kill stuff to get to a titan faster mechanic is the very definition of the killstreak mechanic, except there is only 1, and that is your Titan....

Also where hell have you been buying this? Origin asks 60 euros, that's 82$ !

Or put simply, a complete rip-off in best EA manner.

The minions are there to harvest xp and lower your titan respawn timer, not quite the same thing as needing to kill other players and get a special advantage nobody else gets. The burn cards are perhaps the closest to there being a one side player perk but you can use them too and they only last the duration of one life. I see them mostly as a bonus for bad players to get access to stuff that you can unlock through extended play - some have a "boost" to their stats but again that only lasts one life.

Maybe I'll be surprised with what the "story mode" campaign has for content but it seems like a game that you can consume in a couple weeks time and either continue playing it or only go back to it when the urge to kicks in, it's so casual that there's no floundering around trying to remember how to control weapon recoil or anything like that. I sort of like that it puts "fun" first and leaves all that hardcore pseudo realism bullshit aside.

or greenmangaming with their ever so often 20% off codes, or other key distro sites if you want to.

I've had very few issues with BF4. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

I still enjoy BF4, warts and all but the game has many issues that are known yet seem to be ignored by DICE.
