Playing on a 770 GTX here, I crash every time I approach a bonfire unless my lighting is set to 'low'. With or without latest drivers.

I've been playing violent video games for ~30 years and in those that have moral choices I'm as moral as ever and if I try and go 'bad' I feel as guilty as ever.

A lot of people have no problem with the bad choices but.. I don't know... maybe thats because IT'S A VIDEO GAME AND THUS NOT REAL SO MORALITY IS POINTLESS!

How is The Division still #1? That game is a broken piece of boredom at the moment, and yet it still hits #1 every week without fail.

I'd go for this if I didn't already own a steam controller.

Kinda shitty of NAMCO to release the game in Japan early. It isn't like the english version isn't done, they started passing that around to 'Lets Players' on youtube yesterday. Seems the only reason they are holding off on the game in the west is so it'll come out at the start of the next quarter.

That said I cannot f'ing wait for the game, those youtuber's are saying it's amazing, but I refuse to watch any of them (sorry Mr. Odd) or any of the twitch streamers who gained access with a VPN.

Division is so 'meh'. The highly vaunted PvP system is utterly broken.

Oh.. well I've heard of both. But point remains, just cause you haven't heard of a game doesn't mean it isn't good.

Ah ZP reviews. He's only ever given a positive review to 3 games in his life. But he's fun to watch anyway!

Her Story doesn't have the buzz or hype of some other titles, it's not usually on steams top 10 list for the week, that said it does have quite a lot of popularity as a high quality indie that is narrative driven about a high school girl who has the ability to jump a few seconds back in time. I don't know a lot lot about it besides that, but I do know that it's an episodic adventure title that has dozens of 'lets play' video series on youtube and every time a new episode drops, half a dozen people on my friends list are playing it.

I see games I've never heard of win an award all the time, or be on a top10 list of best games of the year (PC). That doesn't mean they must be shit games or the awards are 'bought'. But given this industry I don't blame you for immediately leaping to that conclusion.

Edit: Yea and WTF Blue? Droppin a title like that!

I haven't really checked it out but the simple fact that the PC has two very high quality 'retro' indie games in a normally 'off' month is pretty awesome.

'Hour Ahead' is a bitch for a few days after. Felt like a mild hangover this morning as my body does NOT like getting out of bed an hour earlier :p.

That said, I much prefer it to sunsets at 4:30pm all winter here in upstate NY.

Not a farmville clone, much much more in that game to do than farmville. I find it a fun, relaxing game with a lot of hidden depth and content to unlock as you and the seasons advance.

Of course the PlayStation VR isn't going to match the Rift (or the Vive) in quality. The PS4 simply does not have the power to drive 120 fps (60 x 2) graphics that would look in any way modern.

Sure it's a result of the hype, but it's also a result of the console market's increasing interest in the indie game scene. Expect all their indie exclusives to be $60/90/150 affairs with $60 DLC bundles that includes 3 of the 5 $25 DLC packs and lets not forget the $350 'No Man's Sky' PS4 skin!

Haven't they learned by now that they can't turn PC gaming into a closed system? How many times have they attempted to strong-arm publishers and developers into doing just that? They are just trying to find a way to make up the revenue of their failing console franchise. This isn't the way to go about it. I swear the suits over there must know about as much about gaming as my grandmother.

The shit ending of 3 doesn't change the fact that for 99.9% of the trilogy it was telling great stories. It did suck all the wind out of me wanting to play again but I'm not much on replaying games anyway. The entire 3rd game was wrapping up the stories and it did them all incredibly well.

As someone who absolutely deplored the ending, I fairly recently completely replayed the series - loving every minute of it. I mostly did this so I could use the 'better ending' mod. I highly recommend the mod, it brings out hidden segments of the ending they didn't use and pieces them together to make a cohesive and much more interesting ending. It erases all the bullshit choices and the 'child who is god' weirdness. This, combined with mods that improve the worst aspects of the series (planet resource grinding in 2 for example), made the game feel like a very different experience and now that play-through and it's ending are stuck in my mind instead of the atrocious ending that sent me spinning into anger for weeks afterword.

I seriously hope this game is worthy of the series, a series that has told - in my mind - the greatest story of any bioware series. Even if they aren't my favorite bioware games 'individually'. I think this delay may be a good thing, and I hope to see some more of the game in the upcoming 'convention season'.

Ugh.. all those 'The Division' pre-orders. I thought people would have learned by now that pre-ordering an Ubisoft title is like paying to take someone to an 5-star restaurant on a blind date. You may have an amazing time, but your much more likely to waste a lot of money on nothing.
