WaltC nailed it. The guy is just a glorified level designer. I'd love to hear what his former coworkers (like at Midway) have to say about his coding ability.
Except for the fact that E1M7 is one of the best levels ever. But whatever...

Let's see what it's about. Won't give it two cents without being 100% sure it's great since Daikatana happened.

The jump to 4K makes little difference, other than needing less AA. But everything else still looks the same.
That one was fun. No amount of AA will make anything look even nearly 4K, not even 1440p-like. 1080p looks blurry AF after going 1440p/4K.

I think his point was if you need a $1,400 video card to get a stable 1080/60, that is terrible -- not that 1080/60 in of itself is terrible.
This is what I meant.

I know what raytracing is, I know its computing cost. It's just I'd rather play in 4K with a 1080ti which costs less than half the money, than spending 1400$ just for 1080/60 with cute reflections.

It's too early for this tech.

I am waiting to read about raytracing in BFV - how good does it work with 2070/80/80Ti?
Guess you didn't even look for it. It runs terrible. Stable 1080/60 on the 2080ti only terrible.

We already have BloodGDX, which runs like a charm. I don't think it needs the Nightdive "bloom" treatment.

Finally...

I recently spent a bit of time with the game, wanting to get my shooter reflexes back in order. 12 hours later, I came out of the game quite agitated with it, because it's still very buggy.

About 1 in 4 games disconnected me to the lobby without warning, mid-game. Maybe 1 in 5 games, everyone would jitter/stutter/teleport randomly (for a good portion of the game), which can absolutely ruin a fight. I had at least a few instances where the game crashed simply loading into a match, or the "Play" button didn't do anything and I had to restart.

I also play on a PCIE SSD and the game's loading screens/wait times actually got really frustrating too. Queue up -> select map -> map load screen -> play match -> another loading screen (several seconds) to see stats -> forced to wait up to 15 seconds before it auto-queues you up again! (AND you can't even back out of the auto-queue in this time! if you have to get up for a few minutes, you have to close the game basically!)

It is fun, but damn if those issues didn't ruin the game for me. I'm sure it could be fixed, but I'm surprised it's still got these issues.
I played in the beta and never had those issues. So they actually made the game worse? Why am I not surprised...
It's BS, I play a couple games everyday, and got like 1 disconnect in the last 3 months.

If I can't cut off arms with circular saw blades I'm not playing. Pfft, "Chasm."

Anyway, Darks, people here frequently post that misleading image trying to show that FPS level design in the 1990s was superior to now. I think lots of people want a more simple game sometimes. And there's a lot of depth and cool mechanics you can add to a platformer now that you couldn't back then.

When I first saw this, that was the Chasm that came to mind. Played the hell out of it back in the day. Wonder if it's on GOG?
And it runs like shit on DOSBox. But people is getting there:

Blue's News (and its readers) has historical ties with Quake.

Quake fans should not miss Strafe, including those who played it on release. It's much improved and it's a great roguelike with Quake-style (albeit faster paced) FPS gameplay.
It's still terrible... But at least the performance doesn't degrade over time until it's a slideshow anymore.

BL was nice because of the novelty factor... But BL2 was a chore, a complete borefest with irritating retarded humor... Pass.

Is this where they undo the launch day change and Vader takes a month to get again? LOL
There was so much BS being said about how long it took to unlock a hero. Within the first 5 hours of gameplay I already had earned more than enough credits to get Darth... So get over it already.

Not to say that unlocking the heroes first is a idiotic approach.

Well, good.

Regular Planescape:Torment looks like shit on my 2560x1440p monitor.

Did you use the patches for custom res to set it to something like 1280x720? (higher would mean tiny sprites)

Well, I enjoyed it, played a fair deal of Titanfall and still go back from time to time... It's holds the sweet spot for me between QuakeIII and CoD.

But as you said there, it's a pain in the ass having 50gb reserved for a occasional game, specially when I'm running a old 320gb Maxtor for games.

And people still throws bullshit about the 120 bucks thing. Anyone paying that sum is just a moron wasting his money, and the people bitching about that price mark probably didn't have any intentions to buy the game even if it vas 40$.

I picked the game for 32 prior to launch day and I plan to pay ~20 for the season pass when the time comes... waaaaay lower than 120

I can't believe my WindowsXP x86 can't support my 24 gigs of ram... I'm switching to Linux. Come on! When we upgrade our computers and this thing becomes relevant to us, Windows 8 will be like 5-6 years old and Windows 7 will be 8-9 _
