And that's my thing is the Co-op.

Steam is The Half Elf and Ubi is Cpt_Ranger
I'd love to get back into the Division.

Granted they have a year to work some things out, and like you said The Division isn't a bad game, but they really did fuck up the DZ and kept making it worse.

I was really hoping this wouldnt suck too, but if this is anything to go by you can kiss that hope good bye.

The guy is a bit of a whiner. He has some valid arguments but also a few that aren't. For example the whole 'bike/chair' thing. The guy is moving forward, switches to aimed 1st person view, is still moving while shooting. Hence why he's closer to the bike. We've been able to aim and move in games for how long now?

Metal Gear Solid isn't an open world. Same in the way that Witcher 3 isn't an open world. It has some very large maps but there is still a transition from mission area to mission area (in MSGV) and the same in Witcher 3 (granted they area huge areas), same also applies for say World of Warcraft (just all in the wording I guess, depends how nitpicky you want to be).

Graphics wise, they game looks good, does it looks OMG awesome?!? No, but typically the bigger the maps the less 'ohhhh shiny!' ya get.

Surprised they aren't using the cover system from The Division. Watching an elite military team crouch down in doorways is painful to watch. Or in the Ubi video how using a non-silenced weapon didn't alert everyone in the compound.
One thing The Division did really well was the AI. It would take cover, use abilities, flank you, etc quite well and I'd love to see it in this game.
All I am seeing is 'easy kill bad guys who don't do shit, and then chase down the target with vehicles'.

The proof will be in the full game when you go after the guy in the church (as shown in the 1st gameplay video) vs what it really is like in the actual game.

He seemed like such a likeable guy, always smiling in interviews and being so forthright in answering questions when showing off work in progress playable demos of the game that looked AMAZING!

Who would have guessed he was just another sleazy guy lying his ass off in order to create a false narrative to shill his game to the unsuspecting masses.

The small indie developers are suppose to be above such unscrupulous tactics, right?

I believe you're talking about Chris Roberts.

Then this would be his son/nephew.

Off the rails since he left?!?

I've tried playing Ground Zero/Phantom Pain, do I really need to see Kojima's name 800 times before I finish the game?

I haven't seen them attack each other, but I have been stalked by critters on land and sea.

I've also fed a few and made them pets and they have followed me around, or dug up resources for me.

But I have yet to see anything even remotly close to what is shown in the video's by Hello Games.

Performance wise, YES. But everything that was shown publicly was scripted out the ass.

I'd love to see a false advertising lawsuit against Hello Games, as I would say this is one of the larger 'Bait and Switches' since Aliens: CM.

Ok so my neighbor and I went and saw Suicide Squad today. (He's an awesome special needs kid who loves comic book movies).
It wasn't aweful, but it wasn't great either. When the movie got 'darker' for a few moments I thought it was great. You were really getting into the layers of the characters, and then they went for cute and comedy parts that just didn't quite work like they should have. Quite a few 'throw this in for 5 seconds' clips from the trailer (like Harley stealing the bag from the dept store window) that lost all comedic value with the current cut of the movie.
SFX were meh (then again the movie had a very small budget). they story was meh, and like a typical Star Trek episode, everything was 'fixed and finished' in the last 10 mins. The Joker barely gets more screen time then Mark Hammil in Force Awakens (yeah I'm being sarcastic but still...), and was HUGELY mis-casted by having Jared Leto play the part. I think Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy could have pulled out a better performance. Dialog wise I REALLY did enjoy the "Would you live for me?" scene, but it could have been so much better with another male actor. Harley was pretty good, except 2 things. 1) The voice. After so many season's of The Animated Series and the Arkham games it wasn't quite 'Harley enough' without her accent. Good, but could have been better. Also where she runs at the bars like a fucktard after getting shock was a 'wtf were they thinking?' moment. And it would have been nice to see a little more to Diablo and Croc.

Love to see a Blu-ray version with the other cut of the film.

Wonder if these drivers will make any difference for NMS performance.

Between the Low to High fix, and the beta patch, performance has been great. Granted it still has the Assassin's Creed "triangle fill in pop/in" thing going on.

Finally got to 40 slots in my exo, and NMS hosed my save game so having to start again.

I don't know. BF3 and 4 were good. Hardlines and Battlefront... yeah...

I really thought they'd go with 2143 with all the hints in BF3/4, and not a huge fan of World War games.

Quit yer complainin' You've got Infinite Warfare and Star Citizen!

Last Call of Duty I played and Enjoyed was the one with 'No English', and Star Citizen... I got a refund. I actually like being able to play something I've purchased.
