Remember when this sort of stuff was expected for free or they allowed the community to create and distribute this stuff? That's why I won't supposed these walled garden type games - well, at least anymore than I have to. $15 for one model? What are they smoking? Do they think they're WoW? Sigh, whatevs.

Well said! I'll never understand why companies in most fields don't realize that making a product that's better than the competition is the key to long term growth and sustainability. This approach obviously includes improving on what was done in the past. Dedicated server clients, LAN support,server browser, mod tools etc... UT99 had better stats system than most games since and the mod support seemed really good. Make something unreal contest and have the top maps in a free official map pack. Connect to a server and you don't have the next map in the rotation, you're given the option to download and install without leaving the game.

I'll end my rant with this other rant lol... stop marketing games like were grade school kids attracted to bright colors! Grad school kids root cell phones and almost everyone researches specs to buy d@mn phones. Consumers are the most tech savvy ever, they research and read before spending $. The disappearing middle class can't and won't support companies like this unless the absolutely have to do so.

I don't live in the US so my comments will be limited to recommending that people look at the results of privatizing electricity in Ontario Canada.

P.S. After reading the details of the Home Depot breach, i can't say that i trust big business to regulate itself. Independent oversight is needed but, even that can be perverted through lobbying.

...just woke up, sorry if i'm not making sense lol.

I got p!sed at the game and went back to Divnity cause i didn't feel like trouble shooting the crash issues. Took a week to fight the first demon cause the game crashed and then smooth sailing till hinterland lol. Someday i'll get there.. Pumped 130h into Divinity, might as well do the final quests while this gets fixed.

Not taking sides but, if i were American, the fiscal cliff debacle would be the deciding factor. If a party is willing to sacrifice the economy just make the other side look bad, they may not have the country's best interest at heart (only their own). In a perfect world those in congress that supported such actions should do time. These are the same people who said any country withholding oil to protest US foreign policy is committing an act of war because they are attacking the economy... Anyways I have a limited understanding of the US political system and may not be making sense.

This is why there is no point in getting a game until the everything edition is released, unless all the DLC is going to be free.

Smart move. Craved an FPS after spending so much time on Divinity but didn't want mre Boarderland. This is a console game first and foremost (graphics, fov and odd control bugs). The game is a solid 7 or 7.5 max. Those with high hopes are surely p!ssed. System Shock 2 mod that replaces the monkeys with face huggers, protocol droids with androids and maintenance bots with Aliens would feel more like the movie than this game imho but thats just me.. Cool attempt at an Alien game but this doesn't feel AAA but that's prob cause of the hype and my expectations.

The 970 is incredible...I find it mind-blowing that many review sites are saying "yeah it's good" or "not bad!"...what are they smoking? 145W TDP with 4GB stock, which is ridiculous, hitting (or exceeding) Titan performance at stock, and it's putting out +14% performance on Fire Strike with a moderate overclock. It's closing in on my 2x760 score and my cards use over double the wattage. As far as I'm concerned it cleans the table and is certainly my #1 suggestion for builds...I wish I had the money, I'd get two of them.

Though i agree with you, I understand the reaction of reviewers. In terms of real world performance, its close to your 2x760 or my 2x670...overclocked 780 ti reviews from last year pretty much had the same performance in terms of fps but like you alluded to, there is more to performance reviews than raw fps.

Asking the internet not to make death threats and racial,homophobic or sexist slurs, is a bit of a tall order, but good luck.

Lol keyboard warriors would actually have to use logic to express their repressed angst..good luck with that. Why aim that at gamers, its a satiety/evolution issue. Hundreds of years after slavery and almost 50 years after MLKs assassination and society is still dealing with this issue. Give it another 200 years maybe at least if not more. (people that spread hate and intolerance do reproduce so it will take a very very long time.

Ok this is stupid. Haven't they considered what this is going to do to the pro scene? Yeah ok, you can play with a "classic" ruleset that doesn't change any of this, but now you are going to have a divided community. Them noobs that don't learn anything because they are playing on ezmode, and the hardcore pro scene.

Usually changes like this are last-ditch efforts to court new users to avoid shutting down. If that's the case, then they don't care about the "pro scene," because they were going to lose the game, anyway.

Prob a knee jerk reaction to how gamers rushed to download the UT4 pre alpha.

With regards to bunny hoping. It only helped when a sniper spent his time in one spot waiting for easy frags. Putting a stamina limit would reduce its use if combined with a sprint button. I would even crank up the base movement speed (love those crazy dm/ffa cod4 speed servers like broadcast k3 one).

p.s. Yes, i know what k3 tried to do with the acronym, not a member

Wow! So they realized that selling shoddy products is bad for business. Telling the world about their lack of common sense is supposed to improve things.

I played the alpha and would caution people to ignore the marketing surrounding this game and lower their expectations, they have a lot of work to do. The gameplay has the potential to be interesting but its bogged down in a mess of technical problems and balance issues. The core gun play just isn't very fun or interesting either. You essentially just chase a player controlled monster around in a large level which loses its novelty quickly. They added in a few different game modes to try and mix things up, the one I played the monster has to destroy a power station after leveling up a few times which is a bit ridiculous. The different classes are interesting but it will require a high level of cooperation to use them all effectively so make sure you're playing with people you know.

The CryEngine doesn't feel well used here, the visual fidelity isn't what you see in the marketing, load times are insanely long (even for an unoptimized alpha) and it just had a very clunky feel. The levels are almost a bit too large, you lose some of the tension from hunting a player when you spend 90% of your time running/jetting back and forth.

I read that it got delayed and I hope they use the extra time to polish things up because it really needs it.

Thanks for the info, thats exactly what i was worried about. I would prefer multiple 4 player teams against 1 whatever... but then there is a chance that the 1 squad could be favored by the one large monster thus messing up games.

You've resumed my biggest issue with the sequel. Loved the game like you alluded to fights depended on fighting the controls to beat the enemy.

Guess Divinity is the new skyrim. Congrats to them!

I like rpgs, but did not like divinity. I don't see what all the excitement is about. I thought the controls were horrid. Story mediocre. Second time I have been burned this month, also was burned on Habitat.

The controls are fine, the camera is what sucks. It frequently adjusts itself while you're making choices and that combined with animation frames being a bit weird means you end up misclicking through no fault of your own.

It is a weird game. There are some parts of it that are great but others you just shake your head at. I think it redeems itself mainly through nostalgia and execution. It's not a bad game but I wouldn't call it a particularly good one either. It is the kind of game that we would have roasted 10 years ago but now our standards are different because we get so few games like it.

Yes the game isn't perfect but the best experience in years all genre included. The no hand holding and the fact that its not linear will be a turn off for many used to the spoon feeding approach of the last decade. The camera has issues but switching to the strategic top down helps in problematic areas. Turned based is fine, the original Dragon Age 1 was a good compromise and many played it almost turned based style without realizing it. No fillers in the game unless you can't follow up or find the story without the game indicating them on a map. Enjoying this more than witcher 2.. Have notplayed dota, diablo etc so i may be off with my praise.

Exactly! They had a mandate and objectives and failed to meet those objectives. Now they will change their name and target another platform (mobile) with the same objectives and mandate but reworded and a new name that they've announced lol. Don't they realize what they did?! Since marketing was what was missing from the PC market, lets just say this PR blunder explains why they were'nt successful.

Run speed/movement is designed for a slower tactical pace, but yet the rest of the game is high speed typical Battlefield.

20 bucks tops.

I read the same comments after downloading the Beta and gave before even trying it. Yes that sounds bad but each time i play bf4 i end up quitting 5min into the game. Its like soldiers are wearing skin tight jeans and cant side step anything, get stuck on invisible obstacles or better yet freeze when the i run into an enemy. Multiplayer FPS used to be a dime a dozen and now we cant even get polished titles or even a half decent title with a server browser. I'll prob go back to racing online to blow some steam after work... (my wheel is so old it wont work on anything older than win98..its been that long)

What happened to the guy proclaiming it was the best game evar?

That was me. I still think it's one of the best shooters ever but it's unfortunately attached the worst matchmaking systems ever and a non-existent server browser. I think the only hope now for a decent shooter will be the new UT considering BF4 was garbage, BFH beta was garbage, and the new COD is just Crysis of Duty.

The new UT is the only one that may live up to expectations. R6 Siege looked impressive but it may be a UBI title. We've all read the stuff they've done to Watchdog PC and will do to FarCry 4 PC..
