This looks overall impressive and better than Doom 2016.

Wish I still loved FPS but I just can't muster the enthusiasm to play this genre any more.

It sure as hell doesnt look nearly as good as Doom. But it has much better gameplay.

I remember a time a few years ago we were celebrating the new golden age of space sims. Elite Dangerous! No Mans Sky! Star Citizen! X Rebirth! Man that did not turn out like expected. At least one of them worked out ok.

Ironically, I heard only great things about the Death Star DLC for SW:BF. It's not even a space sim. lol. Check out this gameplay footage in glorious 4K, 60FPS (the commentary isn't too bad)! Also, I recommend viewing in Chrome.
Kinda funny to hear, looking at the abysmal controls that game has for fighters.

Nope, but I know at least it will be an educated, informed, and considered decision.
Why is it so god damn hard to learn from RECENT history for some people?
I guess if you have to live in Syria, Yemen, Iraq or Libya for a few months you will learn. Well no, I am not even sure about that. This stupidity really boggles my mind. I seriously dont find words for it anymore. No godzilla face palm, nothing will make it better. What the hell is wrong with people like you??? This cant be explained by a low IQ!!!

Tried to change keymapping, crashed every time when I wanted to bind body drag to B. When I chose another key after 4 tries, my custom keymap still didnt work properly. 2 or 3 keys simply didnt work and they were not conflicting.
Uninstalled, got a refund. I am so fucking sick of these shitty console ports...
Oh and this was after the patch.

I remember those game boxes in the late 80's, early 90's. I think I hardly had brain cells when I used to play King's Quest, Police Quest, Space Quest - but I specifically remember the game boxes for Gold Rush & Hero's Quest (Quest for Glory) - (and I think the original Monkey Island) having better graphics on the box than what I was able to get out of my Tandy 2000 and being a bit disappointed. Once I started playing though... completely immersed, lol!

I miss game boxes. It was super awesome when they came with something like cloth maps or posters or what not. The excitement of waiting for the release. Driving to the mall and buying it. Driving home and opening it. Going through an actual manual and checking out what else was in there as you were installing the game. Then finally launching it for the first time. And when it was really great like Civ or Ultima or something you totally forgot to eat, only got up for bathroom breaks and snacks, and finally realized you had been playing all night and had to go to work in a few hours.

I still have my original Ultima Online Cloth map here. Wonder what thats worth now.

The hypocrisy in this thread and on this topic in general is sickening, to say the least.

Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing it in this thread.
Like always, they dont seem to care. Its like theres a huge competition going on whos the biggest hypocrite. The term hypocrite seems to be a compliment to them.

Who is "they"? People are rarely aware of when they are being hypocritical by their own interpretation, never mind yours. I have no idea who you mean.
Thats exactly the problem. If you cant recognize obvious hypocrisy anymore, then nobody can explain it to you, because youre most likely ignoring it on purpose, because youre biased. And Im surely not going to get into this brainless flamewar by trying to. People need to realize it themselves, even friends telling it them will make most people tick out and rather end the friendship, than admit it.

I don't think Valve is being nefarious as much as looking the other way.
"Oh! You cheated! This copy of the game is banned!" *wink-wink, nudge-nudge*

If they really wanted to put a stop to this crap instead of reaping tens of millions of dollars from repeat buyers that get banned multiple times, they could IP ban or MAC address ban people.
MAC addresses can be changed easily, permanent IP addresses not so easily, but its possible, too. Especially since most people have a dynamic one anyway, it could hit the wrong people.

In Section 3, Subsection A of the Steam Subscriber Agreement, Valve makes it abundantly clear that using any method to change an IP is grounds for account termination.

"You agree that you will not use IP proxying or other methods to disguise the place of your residence, whether to circumvent geographical restrictions on game content, to purchase at pricing not applicable to your geography, or for any other purpose. If you do this, Valve may terminate your access to your Account."
And that applies here how? How should they know, when you make a new account with that new IP, what your real IP is? But in any case, only few people have a permanent IP address. Its mainly corporations with permanent ones.

I have a wild theory that CS:GO is #1 because it's a fun game that people enjoy playing. Crazy I know.

Do you guys think Valve also fake the user stats that show CS:GO had a peak playerbase today 10 times higher than the next most popular paid game (639,072 vs 64,958)?

Or do you think it might just be a popular game and there's no conspiracy or malpractice behind it?

I don't believe Valve did anything nefarious. More than likely the recent mass VAC bans led to enough people buying the game again to place it on Steam's Top 10 list.

I don't think Valve is being nefarious as much as looking the other way.

Been having a blast with Mad Max this weekend - put 10 hours in already. Really surprised by the quality of it, from the weighty driving physics to the tight fighting to the eye popping graphics and world design. Well worth getting it while 75% off.
Not to mention the engine/exhaust sound. Its a real joy to push the gas pedal in that game.
The movie was great and the game, too.

I never understood the love for shadow of mordor and im a complete tolkien junky....I played about 6 hours worth and felt like I was playing a rip off of Arkham Knight.

Really dull scenery, the main story arc was pretty meh, sort of wished they had just done the story of the fall of lindon and the creation of the rings. At least there would have been some variation in landscape.

Yep, I quit after a few hours too. Doesnt feel like Middle Earth/Tolkien at all, and you feel trapped on a tiny map.

Wait, did you just call ArmA 3 a twitch shooter?

Are we talking about the same game?
Have you ever turned with an LMG in your hand in ArmA 2 (or reality ;)) and tried the same in ArmA 3?
The whole gameplay turned more into a generic shooter than the tactical simulation it was before.

My personally most hated developer. He not only messed DayZ up (given, after creating it), but he also messed ArmA 3 up, maybe even the whole future of that franchise.

What did he do to ArmA 3? Or just his general fucking around with Bohemia affected it?
He was in the design team, did the wonky motion capturing (as himself) and other design stuff that made this game not ArmA anymore.

I'm curious, what "other design stuff" did he mess up for the franchise?

As for the animations, they were always clunky, I thought that was a staple of the ArmA series, clunky animations, clunky movement.
He turned it into a twitch shooter for example.

Clunky maybe, but the walking animations of ArmA 2 were far superior to the silly and artificial looking ones in 3. They looked natural. The ones in 3 look just cringeworthy.

I pretty much only played it because of the stupid jokes. I heard the first few phrases like "who wants some wang" with that douchey voice and I was hooked. The game didnt disappoint in that aspect till the end. The gameplay itself could have been better, but I liked the sword and I dont think I ever switched weapons more often than in this game, which was kinda fun.

Pretty underwhelming.
What really bothers me is the "clusterfucking" of sounds. In a fight you just hear so many equally loud sounds mixed together, which just hurts your ears and makes the weapons seem weak, since they dont have a distinct and powerful sound. They did the same shit in Doom too. Dont let this be a new thing...
