Glad they are still working this and overhauling, but they need to get rid of the fucking over heating when flying. So fucking lame to have to land for 5 seconds just to take off and fly again.

Then you haven't seen all the film available. There is a shot where Garrett's helmet is about a third to half way off and you can tell Rudolph is pulling at it.

Edit: I did hear one claim that Rudolph's hand was "caught" in Garrett's face mask and Rudolph was attempting to free his hand -- but it was only mentioned once and the information came through a third party...


Unbelievable that you are tying to justify his action, your no better then that dirt-bag. There is nothing, nothing at all that can justify an assault like that.

Honestly, you sound just like a Browns fan, there can t be any other reason for you to defend that bullshit.

The general consensus among the reviews is that Fallen Order starts off strong, but quickly loses steam. It is also how I felt about the Battlefront II campaign, which I bought with a decent sale (fortunately). I think I will wait for a decent sale on Fallen Order as well.

Why even give EA that much money? just wait for someone to post the entire thing on youtube and "play" the game that way.

I don't get people who think that watching and playing are the same. One is infinitely less satisfying.

If something looks fun to you, and you just wait for it to all be on YouTube...

My same thoughts exactly, I never understood why people just want to watch when playing and having that experience is so much more gratifying.

Darks I know you were playing Rune II and liking it, still good or should I avoid for now?

How can a 12 hour game be $60 in the lords year 2019?

Quality, not quantity. I'm totally happy paying $60 for a 12 hour game if its fun and a cool experience.

I want to agree with you, but honestly I feel the goal posts have moved over the years with such saturation. 12 hour game to me means the next day I'm done with it, I would look back and say pretty much no matter what unless it is simply a landmark game (this isn't, is it?) and say A. I should have got a month of Access instead for $15 and then have 28 more days to possibly pay something else. 2. Wait for a deep sale and enjoy it then, it will be better patched and $20 for two days is more palatable.

If we go back 10-15 years I think what you say is more viable.

Well, if you consider the latest COD was only around 5 or 6 hours. Then I guess this is a good deal. The new Terminator game that came out two days ago is also right at 10 hours. Seems to be the norm anymore.

I am, was playing it local, Got around 4 hours in. But tonight will be the real test, we are doing a session with three of us playing it Coop. Will been the main game we play for around 5 hours. Should have a good feel for it. But so far its been OK,

I made Coop mod for Rune years ago, and loved that game. still do and thin kits a lot of fun. But this one just isn't grabbing me as solidly as that one did.

I do like the game, just haven't spent enough time in it.

Ill let you know after tonight.

The Steelers are my team, and that game was a disaster for us. Mason is definitely not the QB of the future for us. and it just shows just how important a good QB is. Ben is sorely missed this season.

As for Garret, that POS should never step on a football field ever again.

Got about an hour in last night, and I gotta say it was a lot of fun. the Story seems to be good so for on how its evolving. Combat was a lot of fun.
Graphics are top notch. loved the opening setting on the Star-ships being scarped that to me was so kewl.

We were just talking about the Empire and how during the war they lost 25 thousand Star Destroyers, we were thinking about how you build that many ships and the sheer amount of man power and resources it would take to build and maintain a fleet like that.

It was kewl to see that the ships were actually being scraped to build newer ones.

So far really loving the game.

Good ole Rune, I played the original and enjoyed it at the time of release. I probably have the box around somewhere also as well.

I have two signed box copies of Rune along with some hard covered books they sent me about Rune.
.
I was the person who created Rune Coop. Got to meet and know all of the devs there and became very good friends with those guys over the years.

Sad to see the company going out like this. but they are still all going to be together so thats good. But I'm still not sure how support for Rune 2 is going to go down, they said it will happen just not sure how it will since Bethesda now owns the team.

Bugs I have encountered:
Escape will not bring up in-game menu, so the process has to be killed every time
Re-binding the menu button not only didn't fix it, but after that you can't rebind back to Escape, even after 'Reset Defaults' :/
Can't put raft in water
Got stuck between an invincible tree and an unclimbable rock, couldn't commit suicide, restarting put me right back there. The only solution was to start a completely new game

TLDR; this game is currently unplayable. A real shame, since when it does work, it's fun.

I hadn't experienced any of those issues. but the key binding is a real pain in the ass. if a key is currently bound from what I have seen, some of them it will not allow you to rebind the key with one that is currently bound to another key.

Ughh!! pisses me off to no end that devs cant seem to fix the primary thing that we all do when playing a game.

1. Re: On Rune II Support Nov 13, 2019, 21:45 Darks
 
Yea, this sucks!

Technical Issues are

Cant Rebind A and D keys for side movement,

FOV slider keeps resetting back to 85. But only after you exit the game.

The Lobby is lagged out badly. you have to uncheck the Official servers box wait until the lag subsides, then recheck the box to see the other servers.

Middle mouse button is locked down to Taunts. Why HH??

I spoke with the guys there, they are looking into fixing these issues.

Game is fun, but the Ragnarok thing annoys me when the world resets. I know why its doing it so you can take out Loki, but its just seems to me that they could have come up wit ha better way to handle the battle with Loki then doing some ground Hog day type scenario over and over.

Not a bad game at all, and graphically its looks great on full.

Yea, I backed this too and sorely regret it. I knew after the first alpha this game was doomed. The Devs spent more time worrying about putting in player housing then fixing and making a good game and it shows big time.

I have no idea why anyone would want to buy this game as catnip did. They wont do a damn thing to fix it it make it any better.

Not sure what the problem is. Marmite makes a great "emergency" lube, and we know what fetish baked beans are involved with...

Hey, gotta have beans with your sex right?

I dont see an issue with this either, people are shit and need to shut the fuck up.

If he does do that, then it makes him an even bigger douche bag then he already is. and Steam will win this battle hands down.

Site is looking better, but the Bolder Blue Text seems a bit to large. maybe trim that down a little? The White text still seems a bit off. But the yellow text is looking good.

I'm not a fan of the change. The site looks "fake" compared to the old design. I understand you wanted to do the mobile-friendly redesign but you have to work on the Font and spacing choices. Post Headers look childish and cartoony. The side topic lists look too wide. This site doesn't fit the new look. If you wanted to go with a blog-style look, just go all out with it. Just looks ... ick ...

Win 10 1903 latest!
Chrome latest's ver.
LG 32" 2560x1440

Also tried it from work, on a 22 in monitor. same on the versions. All look exactly the same. even tried it on some of our servers with Chrome.
It's hard to understand why the layout looks bad for you, unless you could, perhaps, include a screenshot -- with problematic areas marked as a bonus?

Email with screenshot sent to blues. he can forward it on to you.

Not a huge fan of the new look TBH. At first I thought there was something wrong with the web server. The categories on the left are too wide so there's all this extra space and the text for the news stories is too big. It makes the site have a zoomed-in look where I can't see as much on screen so I have to scroll a lot more.

Now I'm not saying it's terrible though. It's still got that classic 90s look to it which I like. What I do find terrible is most modern web page design so this site sticking with a more old-school internet look is awesome to me.

But maybe things look too big and zoomed in b/c I'm still at 1080p. I would suspect that 1440p or 4K users probably see things differently, depending on their scaling settings.

This is what im experiencing too with the site. Not sure Ill ever get used to this look and feel.

And trust me, it s not the resolution of your monitor I've tried it on several monitors and its the same on all of them.
