Is the demo going to be for PC too?

Why would Nvidia need permission to let people who own these games on Steam (for example) install them on Nvidia's hardware and play them from Nvidia's hardware?

I see this as an experiment to see if people are going to be willing to pay full price for a 1 year exclusive game. If so then expect more of the same Epic exclusive bullshit.

A single week of Witcher success does not equate to the the months The ManDeLorian dominated. You canít compare Apples and beanbags.
Actually you can but you shouldn't.

Trailers are easily manipulated to be not representative of the game. Gameplay less so. I prefer gameplay trailers. I have seen both links of gameplay videos and it reminds me of great visuals with little to do. Where is the gameplay?

Everyone was predicting this. All the Planetside players were like "we don't want a battle royale game, the market is overly saturated with them."

The System Shock's demo performance is horrendous. I'm using GTX 1070 with latest Nvidia drivers. I lowered everything to lowest values and over time the performance drops the longer I played the game. I stopped playing after it went is started showing 14 FPS.

See a lot of day one buyers here, interesting.

Or not... Trying it doesn't mean you bought it.

********

Tried it too here, here's what I found so far:

Pros:

-It's Mechwarrior

Cons:

-Components are destroyed way too easily
-Mech parts are destroyed way too easily, they're paper even in heavy mechs VS vehicles/turrets and light mechs
-Mechs are much less customizable VS older mercenaries games
-Can't modify difficulty
-All structures are destructible, which limits tactical choices, why bother when you can just blast through?
-Lots of other stuff that is vastly inferior to previous mercenaries games
-Graphics look meh, like something from early 2010s despite being pretty demanding on hardware, IOWs, unoptimized game

Ugly:

-LRMs mechanics are dumb as fuck and just stupid compared to previous games
-PPCs are way too slow when you consider sluggish torso responsiveness
-Laser discharges are too long and are wasted unless you keep reticle on target at all times, which is dumb as fuck when you consider sluggish torso responsiveness
-Not modding friendly
-Vehicles are way too powerful and durable and they spam them everywhere in missions, it's just stupid
-Dumb lancemate AIs when enemy AI is pretty good, dumb decision from devs
-Lancemate mechs get destroyed like they're paper and can't go through a single mission without losing almost all their components

********

So al in all... glad I tried it first, it's pretty bad compared to the classics. I'm gonna wait for mod support, official or playermade, mod it to my tastes and apply player made mods that fix some of the above crap before considering buying it in a year or so.

Cheers!
How I lament that this was done by Piranha Games. I wish it was done by someone with more competence.

News Comments > Google On Stadia Performance

13. Re: Google On Stadia Performance Nov 25, 2019, 18:19 Overon
 
The words "4K at 60 fps" mean "native 4k" in the minds of everyone who reads them. Google knows that everyone thinks that statement means native 4K meaning the image is rendered and sent at 4K to the endpoint. But now Google wants to deceptively change the definition so that 1080p rendering upscaled to 4K, is also 4K in their marketing. By that logic you can take 480P and upscale it to 4K and still calling it 4K.

Your culture wars aside, this never got out of early access. That does seem kind of scamish. I personally have always advocated against early access. Also I see that they are still selling DLC for this game. They have announced that the game is ending and made it free to play but still have the DLC purchasing enabled for a game on it's last legs before they pull the plug? That pretty scamish.

It's like Blizzard announcing the next Diablo was going to be mobile shovelware.

The announced Diablo 4 which more than 2 years away to counter the backlash they received from the free hong kong incident and the mobile diablo announcement last year.

Sadly, it seems to be working. So much for all those protests about how Blizzard's actions were unforgivable and they'd receive no more money until they mended their ways. We gamers in general just do not have the backbone to resist the new shiny. It says something about our shallow lives that we so desperately grab for some new toy even if it means ignoring out deep-held mores and beliefs. No wonder we get screwed over so much. I'm starting to think we deserve it.

Yes I have been noticing how all these pro consumer advocates always blame the companies, never the consumer. I think consumers to have a chunk of the blame because we have no backbone.

I don't understand why Kojima is deified by people. This game is a bunch of fetch quests.

Announcing Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 or whatever isn't going to save them from the free Hong Kong protestors and woe be onto them if they have their typical open mic question session.
