I recently picked it up and have put almost 50 hours into it (kinda scratching the surface) and Iíve barely seen any issues. It runs fine for me. That said, some people still have issues with it, including corrupted saves.

Iím just loving the game though... itís one of the best Iíve played in years. Highly recommend! (assuming you have a good run)

I hated this show after the first 3 eps.. but hey, as a German I most definitely don't get this humor.. probably because it wasn't funny but hey.. who knows.

It's not because you're German. It's because it's incredibly unfunny.

News Comments > GOG.com Says FCK DRM

Yep, and I like how people talking about having their mp3s forever, as if mp3 is a quality format or even one thatíll be around in the future. Or, even that in the future youíll be able to access the devices things are stored on. The film world is currently trying to work out how to archive digital films they might not be able to access in the future.

My music? Wrong. All my music is in M4A and MP3 format (over 17,000 files) that are 100% DRM free that will play on any device, any place, at any time, with or without an internet connection. Only chumps who stream music through an online service are at the mercy of DRM.

I think you're in an increasing minority. Surprising (and disappointing) to me too. The on-demand model is just so much easier for the layperson who doesn't want to bother worrying about 17,000 files.

Or buying 17,000 files. The average album is, what, 10 songs? 17,000 files is going to be around 1,700 albums, then. At $10 per, you're at $17,000. Or maybe you're finding deals on CDs, in which case you still need the physical media (who in the world wants that?), and it's still going to run you $8,500 minimum, right?

Spotify is $9.99 a month. That means his music selection cost, at a minimum, 70 years of Spotify. It's also around 70GB. And, while he says "any device, any place, any time," that's not entirely true.

I pay for Spotify. According to the stats I see, I've listened to 13,000 different tracks. In that time, I've paid about $480. That's about 3 cents per song I've listened to. I have basically every song ever made at my fingertips. If I get a weird urge for something I never anticipated, I can listen to it. If I don't have internet, well, I can't satisfy the weird urges, but I can save my most frequently listened songs on my phone pretty easily, and honestly, airplanes are the only time I'm more than 20 minutes without internet. Beyond this, laying in bed I can have Alexa queue up a song for me without having to open my eyes, find my phone, and subject myself to a bright screen in the middle of the night. I have Sonos, which I can also yell at to start playing whatever song I want. I can create playlists for my girlfriend and send them to her instantly without worrying about whether she has the songs, or how to transfer them to her. I can start playing music in any room in my home from any device I have, regardless of where I am. Then, when I walk out the door, I only need to plug in my headphones and it's now on my phone instead of wherever it was before.

Again, assuming he paid for 17,000 songs, that's ballpark $17,000, or 70 years of Spotify, to be limited to those 17,000 songs. I don't see how that makes much sense, but for some reason people keep pushing it as the "smart choice" and that everyone else is dumb and stupid and needs to get off their lawn.

Game is still scheisse.

Despite a few quirks, Next is awesome... especially when you turn on tessellation - it looks amazing. Gameplay wise thereís just a ton to do. I havenít been bored for a second.

I don't know. Ever since the last update, it seems like the graphics suck worse now. And a lot of the equipment I had disappeared. I had to stop, the grind was killing me!

Time to visit your local optometrist...

Its a shame no one remembers the original Red Faction, a FPS with great gunplay, and COMPLETE DYNAMIC destruction, not this gimmicky static 3rd person stuff where your explosions don't even leave craters. You could actually dig tunnels with a rocket launcher in the original, I shit you not.

I remember that, and about a billion games before it. This is Blues... not a Fortnite fan club.

The terrain was destructible in Red Faction, which for a poly based engine was pretty impressive, but I'm not sure it was as appreciated as it should've been because of the voxel games that proceeded it (like Outcast and Shattered Steel, amongst others).

From what I remember (and I could be wrong)- the guys who built this "gimmicky static 3rd person stuff" did this after they made the Red Faction engine, but instead of just making a game where you could make tunnels, they worked on physics that could keep buildings standing. That's a hell of a lot more complex. Obviously having a deforming ground as well as those physics would've killed any computer on the planet, so... I think they made a good choice.

These video game timeline things that people keep making (like the 64 objects one) are garbage, and seem to ignore the fact games were played on computers like the Amiga.
