Well, I'm even more excited for the DLC... the logo for the AWE DLC has the Alan Wake artwork in the top half, implying its going to be related. Knew it was the same universe, giving some of the collectibles you found, but didn't expect them do to actual content.

Well, at least I'll finally be able to upgrade my Pierce in Control... Not much to do except wait for DLC though. I finished the game already, and found all the collectibles. Just finished the furnace secret puzzle for the infinite ammo mod last night. The only things I have left (I believe) are two secret areas, just to get them, and trying to figure out what, if any, is the puzzle regarding the TV on top of the security office in the power plant.

Combat was a little wonky, but the story definitely kept me engaged for the entire game. And the fact that it clearly takes place in the Alan Wake world, with actual references to the events in the game was an added bonus.

Now get to working on Alan Wake 2 Remedy, Damn it!

I just wish there was a way to turn off motion blur... there doesn't appear to be a setting for it. I think with Alan Wake, you needed a command line prompt of -noblur, but I tried that, in case it was the same, and it didn't work.

Did you find out how to disable it? It's super SUPER annoying (ghosting behind moving objects.. blegh)



I haven't found any way to do it yet.

But I found it
Here

It uses 3DMigoto DX11 only, basically an injector that overrides that got awful motion blur shader. In settings set w=1 to W=0 and it's gone. Wow... game looks 560x better

I found that shortly after I posted... though I am always super apprehensive about installing random DLLs from the internet. Was really hoping for a command line or INI edit. hehe.

So robots, no? But people doing violence to each other and animals is still okay? These assholes are completely out of touch with reality.

Didn't read the article, huh?

No, you didn't, or more likely you're simply to stupid to understand my point in reference to Youtube and its policies.


Please, do tell me how you made any point based on what the article said, as opposed to the headline in the post.

Lets look at your comment again:

"So Robots, no?" <- They didn't actually ban robot fighting

"But people doing violence to each other and animals is still okay?" <- Entire reason video was blocked was algorithm being over-aggressive in trying to prevent animal violence video... and there are policies in place for violence and harassment.

"These assholes are completely out of touch with reality." <- Complete non-point since it relies on your previous two statements being accurate, which they weren't.

(Not to mention the tone of the article opening and closeing was tongue-in-cheek about AI trying to protect it's robot brethren.)

News Comments > Ooblets Team Faces Backlash Over Epic Games Store Deal
3. Re: Ooblets Team Faces Backlash Over Epic Games Store Deal Aug 5, 2019, 20:51 MacLeod
 
I mean, why would they get backlash? They preemptively posted a douchy announcement post, making it an issue before it even was, as opposed to saying something simple like "look, we were running out of funds, and this let us keep making the game.", they chose to make light of the situation they knew people would be upset with.

On their Discord, the guy basically responds making actual points on why they won't use the store with "entitled gamer baby" comments, and the other dev, despite people explaining why they don't like the store, still can't wrap her head around why anyone wouldn't use it. (she doesn't even see a point in a shopping cart on a game store).

Basically, would they have gotten backlash for accepting EpicBucks(tm)? Yes. Did they make it worse with their announcement and subsequent discord comments. Absolutely. Seriously need someone to handle their PR.

So fuckin stoked for that Breath of the Wild sequel! Nintendo killed it yesterday with announcements, their line up this year and next looks stellar.

I know I'm in the minority on this, but BotW was one of the biggest letdowns I've had in a game. I enjoyed it for about 5-10 hours, but after that, the empty-of-monster shrines instead of actual dungeons, and an overworld that is vastly empty except for enemies, who you actively try to avoid because your weapons break so easily, just started making the game feel lackluster. Finished the first two divine beasts, and just couldn't bring myself to play the game any more.

I finally tried some Beyond Meat: used the crumbles in vegetarian enchiladas. While the texture was pretty good (far better than goopy soy-based products), it was over flavored; tasted more like cooked hamburgers that had been crumbled up than plain beef, which was not at all what I was going for in enchiladas.

And no mention of our little 4.0 earthquake in Cleveland yesterday!?

I grabbed the Beyond Burgers from the grocery store to give them a try a couple weeks ago. I didn't like them at all. Clearly tasted nothing like beef and more like plant. I did have the Impossible Burger and that actually tasted like meat.

Well, more content is good, the general gameplay loop is good, but loot/skills/crafting need a fairly large overhaul.

It's odd, because the systems in D1 are better than the ones in D2. I get that its a loot-based game, and RNG is needed, but

"lets put up to 4 attributes (out of a pool of "a lot") and up to 2 talents on each piece of gear, only let you modify one attribute or talent, and the attribute you modify to has to be the same type (offense, defense or utility)."

only makes it practically impossible to get a piece of gear to upgrade. Not to mention the overlap of quality in gearscore. Oddly, I think if they let you modify one talent and one attribute, or let you switch the color of the one attribute you could mod, it would go a long way to fixing the loot.

Now crafting, other than exotics, I don't even see the point. Lets make a random gear piece, with random attributes and talents, in a random gear score range, and, oh yea, make it so you can't modify crafted pieces. It's just a waste of materials.

The lighting effects in this trailer are mesmerizing. As someone who's been trying out the RTX demos, I know ray tracing when I see it. This is the first glimpse of what the next gen of games will look like. Even though I couldn't give two shits about Halo, I'm super impressed.

It's odd... I thought the graphics didn't really look right. I thought Master Chief's suit looked flat, oddly colored and textured and almost cartoony. I had the same issue with the Star Wars game, though that is current gen. It's like something is missing in the texturing or something.

Just curious what is this streaming fad? If I want to watch a game I play it, not watch some dork play it. The thought of wasting my free time watching someone else play a game is just mind-boggling. That, to me, is the ultimate in laziness.

"why are you watching sport? You should be out sporting! ultimate in laziness!"

Yet nobody complains about watching sports games on television.

The few streamers I watch, I tend to watch for their personalities, but also because there are games out there that I know I wouldn't enjoy playing, but do actually enjoy watching being played.

Overwatch 2 already? Well I guess that's their cash cow now, so not that surprising I guess.

I mean, to be fair, it has been 3 years since Overwatch came out, and they haven't even announced O2 yet, so figure at least another 2 years. 5 years for a sequel isn't exactly a short period of time.

That's how they lore wise reproduce.

Not quite that fast, I believe, though.

Ackroyd's prequel idea sounds absolutely terrible. They would have to retcon the entire setup of the first movie... that was their origin story. The library ghost was their first time seeing one.

Seems DC wants to continue reminding us what a generally good job the Marvel guys have done.

Honestly, after seeing some of his post-Twilight material, it's really not that bad of a choice if they were looking for younger. Check out "Good Time" for example. And that's coming from someone who despised "Twilight" with every fiber of my being.

Man, how I've come to hate the term waifu.

Was it ever a good and useful term?

No. Truth be told, I always hated it, but now it seems to bleed out of the anime community and into general internet parlance, it's even more annoying.
