I feel just as frustrated as you about the auto aim.

Luckily auto aim can be disabled in the config file.

Wanting to hear more about the Radeon problems before I pick this up. I'm just running a lowly 6970, but that has been more than enough to run anything that's come out this year. Frijoles, have you tried running it in DX9 mode?

Turning down the settings helped a lot. It was at Very High with motion blur turned on. After I turned it to just High with no motion blur, it looks and behaves a lot better. There's still an occasional stutter, but not nearly as bad. And certainly doesn't make it unplayable.

So after an hour, I'm enjoying it. I really like the clean interface, and the first bit has a lot of stealth elements which I enjoy. Unscrewing lights, blowing out candles, etc. Light indicator on your watch (again, it tells local time, I just think that's cool). I do want FOV fixed (I can feel it), but I can play it as is.

So I just fired it up, and the game is lagging like a mother fucker. Anyone else having that issue? I'm on an AMD 7900 (something or other). Turning is just a stuttering mess. Feels blurry also, but I can't be certain.

And yeah, the FOV is making me ill. I doubt I can play this much until ti's fixed. Kinda disappointing. I preordered it since the previous one was so awesome. Didn't think they'd fuck it up. The intro movie has me interested.

Ranger mode has two modes under it (regular Ranger and Hardcore). Hardcore turns off all UI elements and makes things harder. Regular Ranger mode eliminates some of the UI and makes things harder as well, just not as hard as the other. One nice little feature of the UI, the dude's watch has local time on it (either that or I just happened to fire it up at the same exact time Steam was showing). I thought that was cool. Can't play though with it stuttering so much.

Edit: Got it fixed. Game set me to Very High settings and had motion blur on. I turned it off and lowered the settings a notch. That helped a lot. Now if I could fix the FOV and the 5 minute long (exaggerating) required intro video.

I play WoT all the time, it's a really fun game. I don't see how shortening the grind by 50% would make it any more fun. The grind is there so people learn how to play the tanks properly.

The grind to go from German SPG 5 to 6 is horrible. I can assure you, after dozens of matches (if not a hundred by this point), I know how to play an SPG. Same for a bunch of other tanks. The grind is absolutely horrible. And that's just the skill grind. You then have the money grind as well if you didn't drop $50 for a premium money-making tank.

Part of the issue is that if you lose, you just wasted 10 minutes. The xp gain for a loss can barely be called a gain. And a loss will a lot of times cost you silver.

I enjoy the game, but only for a few weeks at a time. When I get the itch to play, I grab the premium membership and play it for a few weeks. But yeah, I wish the grind was about 50% less.

I've never even heard of Skylanders.

Take a walk through an elementary school/playground. It's everywhere. I bought it for my 6 year old. I can see the appeal, and if I had more time, I'd play it when he's in bed. Although he's more interested in Minecraft. That makes me happy.

"The player must go to Cold Harbor" ... and kill 10 daedric bodyguards followed by the boss (who shall have three phases). Along the way, you must also gather various shit.

Actually it looks good. I don't have high hopes for it though.

No, buy something worth paying for. [Edit] Seriously, $15 for that indie crap? SHOVELWARE.

Monaco's multiplayer has gotten good reviews everywhere I read about it. Dunno about the single player though (if it has one). Mars War Logs reviews have been "meh", so I'm waiting for a sale on that one.

I was going to back this on Kickstarter, but there was no Amazon payment option. Kinda sad to see it vanish.

I didn't hate Elemental: WoM like a lot of others, but it's hard to deny it was shit. Since I've now gotten both Fallen Enchantress and this one for free, I guess I can forgive them. Looking forward to trying this tonight.

Divine Cybermancy was good, really good. It goes on sale every now and again and people should pick it up and give it a try.

I've tried a few times. The interface is an immediate turnoff. And not knowing wtf to do didn't help. I remember two things from this game. 1) walking a fuck ton trying to find something to do. 2) having endless enemy spawns as I try to figure out where I'm doing.

I have a friend that loves the game. It's not for me though.

it looks like Unity is "good enough, and multi-platform"... so other engine developers (Epic, etc.) may become obsolete, or have to drastically reduce their prices to other AAA shops that don't have their own internally built engine.

I haven't used UDK, but I believe both Unity and UDK are the largest two at the moment. Unity is $1500 for a pro license. UDK is free if you make under a certain amount per year (like $50k). After that they charge royalties. From what I've heard, Unity is easier to use and UDK looks better.

I found it surprising that even Blizzard is using Unity for their upcoming card game.

Thinking that it will suck a large chunk of subs from WoW, when do you release a product and not kill the existing cash cow. Or will Titan be so different, they won't pull many WoW subs. They'll have to time it to catch WoW on the way down.

My guess (hope) is that they basically give you access to both WoW and Titan for the same monthly price using that yearly-contract thing they did. That came with a free copy of D3, so I could see them doing something similar to get people to renew it.

DAoC was awesome, but with how often an MMO fails to deliver, funding one doesn't appeal to me. Still, I hope it works out for them.

Edit: fuck it. I have no will power. I just hope it's as fun as DAoC was.

did anyone look at the children faces in Bioshock Infinite? My.. FUCKING, God. That is the most horrible animation and facial design for children EVER.

I thought all the NPC models and animations, with exception of Elizabeth, were pretty bad. At least they're easy to ignore, what with them barely interacting with the player.

It does look cool. Anyone know if it's a PvP shitfest? I've tried a few browser-based MMOish RTS games and they always come down to the largest guilds/groups killing everyone they can for no particular reason.

I dont know about you guys but I'm so tired of these 8bit games that have been coming out lately.

My thought is that they've always been coming out, not just lately. It's just that we're seeing more and more of them because of Steam and Kickstarter. In the past, a game with graphics like this would just be buried somewhere unless it hit a certain popularity.

I'm in the same boat, though. Although I grew up on games that looked like this, it's hard to get in to them these days. I'm glad they're being made and enjoyed (presumably), but they're not for me.
