Does it have 50 seconds of unskippable intro videos again? Does it feel the need to rebuild the shader cache on 7 out of 10 random start-ups?

Yeah remove those intro vids. Problem solved. No startup issues. Game runs flawlessly. You're in (edit: as in, PLAYING) within 15 secs on an SSD.

Alright, at least that works. In Dishonored 2 the videos are nowhere to be found (to be deleted.) :\

The truth is people don't overclock properly.

Yep, that totally explains why people who don't overclock see the exact same issue. I'm glad you figured that out for them.

PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds developer already looking to port the game to Xbox One.

Maybe focus on finishing the game first? You've already made enough money to retire on.

Wtf

Why would he finish it? It's already made enough money for him to retire on. Finishing the game for those who've already paid for it doesn't bring in any extra cash. Porting it, otoh, is an entirely fresh new revenue stream, so he can retire in style.

That said, why port it to the Xbone? Why not port it to the PS4?

News Comments > Where Does a 12M Member Crew Hang Out?
1. Re: Where Does a 12M Member Crew Hang Out? May 5, 2017, 15:06 Creston
 
I'm going to guess about 10 million of those are from the many "Get it for free!" giveaways they've done.

Even so, it's a fun game. The map is fantastic and is really the big drawing point. It's cool to drive around, and they did really well on the snow driving physics (not so much on the normal ones), so it's a ton of fun to drift through the Rockies. (which, for some reason, start about 3 miles West of Chicago...)

The story is truly god-awful, but just skip the cutscenes and do the missions, and most of the challenges are quite fun, as are some of the achievements. (NY to LA in, I believe, 45 minutes is a cool one to try to get.)

It isn't stealing because technically AMD and Nvidia didn't lose anything. Plus, those Chinese companies were probably planning to buy them, but wanted to test them out, first. They'll probably still buy it when AMD and Nvidia drop the price low enough, I mean, if Steam does a sale on those manufacturing secrets for, say, $5, the Chinese companies would be all over it, and therefore it's 100% ok.

1. Youtube "prank" May 4, 2017, 10:27 Creston
 
I bet that dumbass would have thought it'd have been even funnier if people had gotten into an accident over it.

In any case, yep, removing federal road signs is a felony. And sure, they can donate to your legal fund, but your ass is still going to jail, because there is video evidence of you frigging committing the crime. Moron.

"BUT I DID IT FOR THE YOUTUBES!" is not a $)*#$# legal defense.

2. Starcraft source code May 3, 2017, 22:59 Creston
 
I'd be very curious to know how that CD wound up in a "Box of Blizzard stuff."

It's amazing how few shits devs give about their source codes for games.

1. SpaceX satellites May 3, 2017, 22:52 Creston
 
I usually never go against Elon Musk, because the guy is really, REALLY fucking smart and even his craziest ideas somehow make their way into reality, but 4500 satellites? And then 7500 more??? Ignoring the fact that that's 3 (or like 9 with the 7500 extra) times the current amount of satellites in the entire sky world-wide, how on earth does he ever expect this to become cost-efficient??

I'd love another tropical Far Cry. Far Cry SHOULD be tropical.

Also, to me this image actually kind of struck me as a pirates thing because of the skull? Maybe another Black Flag game???

Dude it's an actual FC3 image...

Well shit.

You guys never even bothered to fix the damn game feeling the need to redo the shader cache every {random} amount of times it starts up, meaning it takes like three minutes just to boot to the menu, so you'll forgive me if I don't take your damn word for it.

Another thing to note is that Dishonored 2 was developed on Arkane's own Void engine, while Prey was made using CryEngine 3.

And CLEARLY you'd know CryEngine 3 better than your own engine, ergo, Latin, better results for Prey? Confused

Wonder what's next for TES. Guess we'll find out in June.

I don't think so. I think the next TES game is 5 years away at least.

I'd say 2020. They're done with FO4, so everyone at Todd Howard's studio is working full tilt on the next ES, and has been for probably around a year now.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Turns 15
15. Re: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Turns 15 May 2, 2017, 15:14 Creston
 
I loved Morrowind, it was the first Elder Scrolls that I REALLY got into (I played the first two but didn't stick with them beyond a few hours.)

Just the persistence of the world was amazing. After I'd been playing for 30 or so hours, it really bugged me that my character had no place for himself. No house to store my loot, etc. So I came up with the idea, what if I kill some house owning schlub in town? Surely the game won't let me do that? The guards will come storming in and murder me, or the game will lock me out of the house, or the owner just gets magically respawned after a day or something, right?

Followed some dude into his house. Cut him down to shreds. Hid his body in a closet. Waited. No guards came. No respawn. Nothing. Satisfied, I took the key from him, and turned his house into my personal Daedric and Glass armor/weapon display museum.

I mean, we take this for granted now, but I don't think many games had done this kind of open world persistence before. (I think you could do it in Gothic.)

And then of course the layering of items. By the end I was a permanently flying/levitating, enchanted-out-the-ass Daedric armor wearing God. I killed Vivec because I didn't like his conceited belief that he was more powerful than me. I don't remember much of my fight with Dagoth Ur, other than that it was over very, very quickly, and I thought "Wow, you were what everyone was afraid of?"

I think it's that slow nerfing and eroding of the magic system and its abilities that I miss most of all from Morrowind versus the later Elder Scrolls.
