Online games have queues sometimes, that's not new.

It is a fact of life - that used to be isolated to MMO's and multiplayer-only games like Overwatch. I'm sorry - I will not accept that "this is just how it has to be". That's demonstrably false. There's no non-corporate, non-monetization reason whatsoever for there not to be dedicated servers that I will accept. If people are okay with that, that is perfectly fine. You do you. Just don't pretend that those of us who refuse to put up with this shit are crazy, because we have played and are still playing co-op and multiplayer games that don't require us to be allowed to play the games we paid for. It's frustrating, because this game looks like it is a lot of fun. I want to be clear; I am not putting down anyone who decides that this isn't a factor for them. That's their choice to make.


Well said! I've yet to see the advantages of the current approaches vs what we had in the early Quake/UT days. Never had to wait, plus griefers, bigots and cheaters were dealt with before the round/game was over. No friends list just join the server with people worth gaming with playing or do a round of clan servers to test your skills etc.

Didn't even know this existed. I was happy for 5min thinking that i was finally going to retire The Div 2 (not into games as a service). Div 2 made consider this 3rd person ish shooter (FPS guy).

They could've done everything the div 2 failed to do, but here we are.

Last BF game was a bust. Nothing with good DM for me to go old school on some current gen gamers who could technically be my grand kids (time flies, but still pretty quick @ 50). Just a sad period with only div 2 to scratch my competitive itch.

Bold NVidia numbers, particularly on Alan Wake 2 which I'm playing right now, on the 4080 Super when compared to the 3080ti, which I'm running.

Will wait for reviews... Would consider the upgrade and selling the 3080ti if those numbers pan out, which they won't.

Yup, they are probably showing best case with frame generation. Been waiting for the next gen so running a refurbished 3080. Could've had a 4070 for the same price, but not sold on the tech since it could introduce some interesting input lag.

Will wait for the 5000 series and see AMDs response and go from there. (.. realistically, I'm probably getting a 5080ti or 5090 if those lines continue).

Anyways, not a lawyer, but I'm old enough to remember the MS court cases or their outcome.

Been telling folks on wear os threads that demanding/expecting google to make all the apps didn't make sense because of the very concept addressed by this case, the MS cases etc.

Wow, not even reading what the fuss below is about. Elections looming somewhere I guess lol.

Fingers crossed. Played the last one despite it's flaws. Felt like the 90s getting HOTAS to work early on. Finally a mech game after a long wait and so many cancelled titles.

Hope we can build our mech inventory, arsenal as the story progresses, joystick/hotas support and environments worthy of the franchise. The $ in next Gen consoles might motivate someone to make something good. The tech is there to get it done.

Like with the next stalker game I'm gonna stop myself from thinking and hope for a nice surprise when the time comes.

Love the game, it went from stop gap to my main source of gaming. It's about loot and loadouts you create, they added expertise to add a little more juice to the gear owned. New game mode doesn't even use your gear so what was the point? The power plant mode where run and run to the next objective.

Hope I'm wrong about how this works. If not, I'd take a ut99 hoard mode with my gear with the option of 4 or 8 player teams and all the difficulty levels from challenging to legendary. They can reused control points as maps and we have to hold..

GR was a game no one was wanting. They should also pull the plug on the Division game that's similar.

Agreed.. but I just saw an ad for it, for the mobile version. So... Ugh. Screw that game, give Division 3 or Division Survival game.

And they need to re-evaluate GR games, so I hope this is a good sign. Breakpoint and Wildlands were just too empty and arcade-y.

I'm still amazed that i actually loved playing a 3rd person shooter like Div 2, but it was so badly managed it's beyond words. I'm old now and given what i've seen in my career (non gaming), I should expect this stuff..

RRP is different. I accompanied a relative to buy a stroller and we were shocked to see the same stroller a 15min drive away and the RRP was at least 50% lower. Yes, i'm aware of the local sales variable. I figured that one out seeing an elderly couple arguing with staff at Mcdonalds cause the bill was 75 cents more than in their borough.

That said, not my field of expertise and the laws prob allow this behavior. It's just sad to see all the people getting fleeced since prices are higher around say downtown gov offices and the downtown core isn't exactly rich.

I hope they lose and will have to pay a few billion $$$. They need to learn that either they believe in their ONE WORLD idea or they don't. Believing in it only if it does not harm your profit is ridiculous and actually a blow to the whole idea. I love it when rich people say "WE ARE ONE PEOPLE" only to instantly change this opinion when it comes to selling their products.

This is an interesting case and I wonder if it will have any impact on other industries.
Ex: An item purchased at Walmart or Mores and the price varies from borough to borough and sometimes within a borough. Not just small price variations from one Walmart to another or between Mores locations and those a 2 simple examples in my city.

Looking forward to this, only because it's not another battle royal/overwatch thing. If they can at tighten up the controls/netcode compared to 4 or bfcbc2, it would be a good start. Add options for people to create maps and we might have something worth playing for more than a year.

..stop the c bills thing to unlock skins.. only spent them if they unlocked gear in 5, so hardly any spent on my end.

Like everyone is saying, why?

They have steam!?! I avoided it like the plague til brick and mortar store stopped carrying PC games because to me it was like those AOL things. They even ended getting me as a supporter.

They really don't seem to realize what they have. Focus on making steam what it could be. Less intrusive and an interface that I may actually want to use unless i want to close steam and just game...It may already be to late since I now have launchers for Division 2, BFV, Mechworrior etc..

If they've given up on steam, forget hardware and focus all the energy on an epic Half Life sequal to revive that side of the business. Also do VR stuff when appropriate & maybe to inspire as MS was trying to do with Surface and OEMs etc.

steam has social media type stuff (yes, i'm old) to connect players, VR and there is a pandemic that forced people into isolation. Basicaly, they could have triggered a Wii / Wii bowling type craze with a cheap basic wireless VR setup and from there who knows.

I played a lot of D1. Only maybe a few hours of D2. Interesting concepts in the Dark Zone and a few mechanics, but the narrative never really clicked for me. Playing a game like Destiny it is easy to rationalize the big space zombie taking 500 rounds to the skull and keep coming back for more.

Shooting 500 rounds of an AK into the head of some street thug with a hoodie? Kinda bring me out of the game. Purely subjective and all, but that was really kept me from investing in the game.


A Person after my own heart. That made me fly totally out of the game world. And if I cannot accept the world logic then the rest of the game also falls apart.

Darks -> it's all for the internet clout, these days. I wish I could say it was just the 'kids' or something, but it seems to span multiple generations now. Anything for internet 'fame' of any level.

I swear humanity wasn't like this, 30 years ago even

I beg to differ, I think Humanity has always been like this. The internet just exposes just how often this behavior actually exists. By offering people more means to act. I tend to think of it as an extension of how the Schoolyard works. "Did you guys hear what Jimmy did?... yeah filled a toilet with notebooks!" Its just grade school acts with international fans and less oversight. No principle to punish him. Ubi's legal team though will probably clean up better then any principle.

I highly doubt it, but since the mental patient in the WH is in bed deep with China, I wouldnt be surprised!



Wow there's so much to unpack here:

1) Did you notice how I mentioned Battlefield 4 where the singleplayer campaign literally has the player overthrowing the Chinese government to try and install a Pro-Democracy leader?
2) You know that DICE is from Stockholm, Sweden right?
3) The fact that you'd immediately jump from video game news from a Swedish company choosing to push a trailer due to real-life events sensitivity... to it obviously having to do with Hunter fucking Biden, and the goddamned president being in bed with China... I mean... my god. I'm gonna block you and not look back. You might be more at home on 8kun Rolleyes Rolleyes

I tend to avoid posting when things go down this road,but, just wanted to say thanks. You articulated your point so well that his follow up post is basically like him conceeding that he can't counter (childish stuff).

Not putting my hopes up to high. If they can improve on the netcode, responsiveness and tighten up the controls another notch or two to bring it beyond Bf4 and some of the better moments of 5, I can find the right loadout to keep it entertaining. Weird that even Div 2 can feel tighter than any bf game (except my tank in bfbc2 vietnam..just leathal).

After the Witcher 1, 2 and 3 they deserve the $, but they have to go back to what made them great. Still waiting to buy it and I might as well wait for 3090s, 3080s our equivalants to be available. The few perks of getting old lol.

Intersting side note: I saw an article about an official cyberpunk nerf gun.
Not sure if its for collectors, but I assumed this was a mature game, kids won't demand something with no link to their entertainment univers (tv, cartoons, games etc.)
