News Comments > Tom Clancy's The Division Roadmap
14. Re: Tom Clancy's The Division Roadmap Mar 4, 2016, 16:33 Creston
 
Not arguing on whether the game's good or not (I don't know, I haven't played it), but to me this reads like:

Incursions: Horde mode.
Conflict: New Horde mode.
Expansion 1: sounds cool.
Expansion 2: Horde mode.
Expansion 3: Horde mode.

...?

News Comments > Epic Calls for UWP to Open Up or Die

So that's the second major PC player that's now called out MS on their (potentially) anti-PC bullshit.

Queue Spencer Whatshisfuckingface "recommitting MS to PC gaming" again sometime soon, and all the MS defenders quickly bleating that Tim Sweeney is a moron and that MS is a benevolent entity that should be fully trusted at all times.

I don't know whether MS plans to go the Apple way. It does appear to be so, but Gabe cried the same thing several years ago, and the Windows Store doesn't appear to be a walled garden as far as I can tell (I literally never use it, so I genuinely don't know), so who knows how true this is. But if the head of the PC's #1 engine and the #1 distribution platform are both getting concerned enough to take public action, it is probably something to be wary of.

They should take their time with these and actually make an attempt to optimize them instead of "Does it run? POOP EM OUT".

But... that's been MS's motto for like 30 years...

So will the DX12 goodness break GSync, like it did with Gears of War?

For those who hated the ME3 ending (as I did), the Citadel DLC is basically a giant 8-10 hour ending.

Because of insane reasons (probably so poor Mac Walters wouldn't get his feelings hurt) they pretend the Citadel takes place DURING the ME3 war, but by its tone and content it is very clear that this takes place AFTER everything else.

It's one giant kick ass party (literally!) and an awesome send-off after 100+ hours with this crew. It is one of the best DLCs made by Bioware. I heartily recommend it.

I get the feeling they're on the ropes these days. Wouldn't be surprised if they fold in the next year or two. Madcatz basically admitted RB4 didn't come close to meeting expectations, and their other previous game used KS funds.


Yeah, they're probably quickly going the way of the dodo. As it usually happens with one-trick ponies.

Not to mention this eliminates the possibility of playing/watching this game offline.

Which is exactly what MS wants to begin with. If you are offline, they can't send ads to your login screen.

So for those who have played both, this or GalCiv 3? (yes, I understand this is still in EA, so it's not a fair comparison, but potential wise?)

"Please note, when we were leading the race with the 360, we said exactly the opposite thing. I am a giant tool."


As for hardware upgrades, heh, with your prices, MS? You try to sell people a 500GB HD for like 180 bucks. So how are you going to price these hardware upgrades? 800 bucks for a processor, and 200 bucks for some RAM? I'm sure people will line up in fucking droves.

Your neck will quickly tire of head tracking, I'll predict...

Does your neck get tired from you doing this exact same thing all day, every day for your entire life? The only difference is the added weight, which isn't much. I'd agree with others stating that heat or just the pressure of the device against your face is much more likely to be a deciding factor into when you put it down for a bit.

What I worry about is friends wanting to use it, because they absolutely WILL want to use it. How nasty is the foam barrier going to get from the buildup of oils? I haven't read anything about either headset having that being replaceable, and it NEEDS to be. All it takes is that one buddy who sweats uncontrollably all the goddamn time, like he's constantly trying to lie his way through a murder trial, to make no one else want to put the thing on. I'm already considering how to tell them, politely, to please wash their face instead of just rolling out of bed and coming over.

Just cut a cover out of an old t-shirt and put that on there, grab a new cover for every person who uses it. Easy solution. I do that with my CPAP machine, to stop from having to clean the silicone cushion Every.Single.Day.

I think it was on consumerist a few years ago where they suggested putting your CC in a glass of water in the freezer.


Haha. I'd find some way to still read it.

Trump is just an egoist. He'd probably just cruise around on AF1, play golf with world leaders, and fire his cabinet regularly, cuz can.

Guerilla is great fun. I still replay it once every couple of years, though the graphics are getting pretty long in the tooth now. It's even more fun if you can get a mod working that increases the power and # of shots of the nano rifle.

It's still frustrating to think that they made Guerilla, a game almost universally loved, and by far (BY FAR) the best of the Red Faction games ever made, and then when everyone is clamoring for Guerilla 2, they instead make some stupid Dead Space clone, and then act all surprised when nobody buys it.

The idiocy of publishers...
