Does AMD have a driver manager like nvidia's geforce experience?

News Comments > Battlefield 1 DLC Plans

I'm noticing that people are just getting crazy good at the game, so it's hard for me to say people are cheating. Some people are putting in 4+ hours a day, 7 days a week.

I'm still awful at the game, but I've sniped people in the Zeppelins and planes through pure luck.

I'll definitely be snagging the DLC, the game can use a few more maps. My biggest criticism of the game is that there was no representation of Verdun. That said, I'm not enthusiastic that it will simulate real trench warfare.

Is this one of those videos that is designed to pump up the "base" supporters of this game?

I'm constantly amazed at what the people do at Amazon to get my packages out so efficiently. Amazon engineers are another story.

I've had a decent amount of trouble with my GTX780 drivers. My son loves the assassins creed games... unfortunately they are incredibly glitchy and rogue is now unplayable.

I got him an RX480 for xmas, so I'll see what it's like on the other side. My last "gaming" radeon (around 2008) was an amazing card that lasted for many years so my hopes are high.

So is Romero still working on that demo so he can start his kickstarter back up? Or has the world forgotten that bizarre kickstarter actually happened.

I purchased CH and Thrustmaster HOTAS and returned them both. I just love playing Elite with a mouse and keyboard- I think it's how seamless the roll is, it just felt clunky on the HOTAL without the foot pedals.

I tried it out with my steam controller and really hated it, felt like I was fighting everything.

This release reminds me, I need to finish Black Flag. I get soo sidetracked in those open world games, running around pushing guards off the roof or other non-plot nonsense.
My 7 year old beat the main quest 3 times in the past year. I have no idea how he got so good at this game... I think one of his saves is up to 99% complete... not sure what he got stuck on.

Hate to say I one of the ones that finally bought GTAV. I figure a 50% discount is the best I'm going to get before GTAVI comes out.

The number of DLC is insane, but it works so well for this game. I agree, they should package this all differently, it makes no sense for a new user to just be playing the vanilla game.

I'm not sure CK3 is ever going to happen. It would take many years for it to reach feature parity with CK2, so what's the point? I think a Clauswitz engine upgrade would be a nice major release, but it needs to be compatible with all of the existing DLC. Since Paradox keep improving the graphics, I'm not sure that will ever happen.

I loved the original so I'm thrilled this is getting re-released. Still, there's something about the new graphics that really rub me the wrong way. Maybe its just that the low-resolution of the older game made everything look like it was hand-drawn, but this new version looks like a cheaply-made Shockwave/Flash game. Given the choice, I think I'd prefer the original.
I strongly disagree. I definitely felt that way with the Monkey Island 1 & 2 Special Editions because the pixel art in those games was exquisite.

But Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle do really well with the vectorized treatment- the pixel art in those games felt crowded and blocky. Regardless, I can't imagine that this game won't also support the pixel-art swap-over version, so you should be fine.

This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. I really liked The Reapers Due, just a simple DLC that added more events and some new mechanics for all styles of play. This looks like it's going to be the same kind of thing.

I'm realizing that as I play Battlefield and presumably get better, everyone else is getting better at a faster rate, so I just end up sucking even more. It's depressing. I guess these battle packs are made for people like me.

I wouldn't want to stream 4k even if I could because I'd probably end up getting a letter from my ISP telling me to pump the breaks or we'll do it for you about 4 days in to the month.
I pay an extra $10/month so I don't have to worry about this nonsense. I never go over my previous cap, but at least now I'm not worried about it possibly happening.

So is this one of those situations where they had mandatory layoffs after their last release and now have to hire people back to start the next project?

Man, I thought moving to Canada would give me some relief from US politics. If anything, I've become the goto guy up here to explain to Canadians what the hell is going on in the US.

It's amazing that virtually all Canadians I've spoken to think campaign finance laws up here are the same as in the states. They also don't understand why so many Americans just despise the Clintons. I can't handle explaining these things any more, yet I feel like it's only just begun.

I never use apps like the Facebook app or the Youtube app for example. Their websites work great on phones and are full featured. Why would I waste space, cpu, battery and start time with these apps?
I like the Youtube app on iOS. My main issue is with the web version is integration... whenever an app or site links to a youtube url, I want to be logged in so I can potentially subscribe to the channel and get the video I'm watching in my history. Since iOS spawns a new webkit instances with no saved cookies, I would have to go through the log in process. With the app you can also watch a video while you browse in youtube, something I do every day. I also get system alarms for some streams I've marked so the unique app features do justify using it, imo.

I've been Facebook free for 2 years and have no desire to go back to that cesspool so I fully support removing that terrible app. I'm a webdeveloper myself so I almost always prefer the web version over the app, but for media I tend to prefer the app experience (youtube, twitch, vimeo, podcasts, etc).

Visually, this game looks absolutely stunning. The only issue I have is that there doesn't seem to be any economic component in Sandbox mode. I've also seen the Scenario criticized as being far too easy. I definitely think the game should be easy for kids, but us adults should have a completely unforgiving experience.

Is anyone still playing this? It got mediocre reviews when it was released and had a lot of competition in the 4x space.
