Nvidia driver releases are annoying. Waaay too often. I know they want the competitive edge by having every new game released under their umbrella, but it's annoying to constantly install them. They aren't too quick to install either...
Then don't update?

Every single update is hardly needed. Only really need to update if you have old drivers that do not support a new generation card you just installed.

It seems like a big list, but most of them are small issues for pretty niche setups.

This one, however Closing Application: When closing Destiny 2 on PC, players must close the application via mouse input. Controllers cannot select the in-game button to close the Destiny 2 application. is just freaking nuts.
Who the hell is using a controller in a FPS game on PC?

Its perfectly fine for PVE stuff, now the PvP (crucible/iron banner) use the mouse.
This I can see. I played the D1 beta on PS3 just because. Had no intention of buying a FPS game on console. But the PvE stuff I could... manage. PvP... died once 2 seconds after the round started and didnt touch it again.

I get on the console forums, and there are 1,000's of posts from people complaining about this game, flaming the developers, pointing to statistics showing the player count is already dropping drastically...

Then I come here and some PC people are excited about the game's release.

Out of the loop?
1) It is not out on PC yet. 2) First one never came out on PC.

Blizzard isn't a shining symbol of perfection, but this was a good way to handle it.
Especially considering this bug has been an issue for just shy of a month.

And I still need a 3rd party program so my fullscreen view works correctly.
Yeah really. Game is good but basically REQUIRES using a controller and REQUIRES 3rd party patch to use it on PC.

Developer: We released it on PC! You should be happy!
Players: You released a steaming turd.

Wow a three day beta, in the middle of the work week? Sign me up! Oh wait, it's the first week of fall semester and I have, you know, a job. I guess don't sign me up.
Everything about the PC launch of this game is utter bullshit.

News Comments > EA: Mass Effect: Andromeda a "Great Game" Series May Continue
13. Re: EA: Mass Effect: Andromeda a Aug 25, 2017, 08:40 necrosis
 
I have not been able to bring myself to finish the game... twice.

About half way through there was just nothing to compel me to keep going. To talk to the rest of the crew between missions. To do any side things. All of these I actually felt like doing in the other Mass Effects.

The game is not fun. The characters are cardboard cutouts. The story feels like a Usenet fan fiction. The dialogue and choices are teenage level writing.

The game was not good. Not even in passing. Not even if it was even on Steam for a Steam sale.

Nobody, but nobody comes close to CDPR in game support--it's not even close, CDProjekt is so far ahead. As is well known, they support their games years into the future,

I think Blizzard surpasses them, just saying...
And I think you are high, just saying...,,,,,,,,,,

Rec specs are a bit of a pigfucker aren't they considering they'll run just fine on crappy ol' consoles. Sounds like it's going to be an unoptimized POS. And if it doesn't run on Win 7 they may as well not even bother.
Why should they support a dead OS?

This pisses me off the most.

"Legit on day one!"
"What is day one for PC?"
"Um... we will get back to you on that."

Not a shock really. You don't get dedicated servers for Diablo 3, Overwatch or other instanced party MMO type deals either.

Overwatch has dedicated servers

Does it? I see an announcement from 2015 that it will, but then endless complaints in 2016 and 2017 that it does not.
"Dedicated servers" does not mean what it once did. Now it means company run servers. Or more specifically NOT P2P.

User run dedicated servers died a long time ago.

  • Poor port quality. Locked 60FPS (or worse 30), no support for 21:9 aspect ratio or super-widescreen. Control schemes designed for controllers (mouse acceleration on by default, no options to disable)

  • Already said the game will support 4k, 21:9 support, uncapped framerate, adjustable FoV.

    I like to jump on hate bandwagons but at least get the facts right.

  • Most likely no PC demo

  • PS4 getting content months in advance

  • No Steam release

  • No dedicated servers

  • Delayed PC release


  • I was on the fence about getting this game. Well now I have been kicked off, to the 'do not buy' side.

    It's valid to call it WR .. this one here at least

    Its not a WR. No speed run should be called a WR if they glitch the hell out of the game.

    Does a race car driver get a WR for completing the Nürburgring by driving through the middle of the course? No.

    Stop giving these hacks press.
