Can someone actually explain the Titan to me? I don't get it.

Being able to say you own a Titan.

Yep, just so those Beverly hills types can brag about buying an expensive card just because they are rich.

No surprise there, I dont know why they cant release all versions of these card's at the same time instead of stringing people along with their cards.

And screw their 1200 dollar price tag, not even worth it.

I'm not exactly clear what's happening here.

1. A thief steals a credit card number
2. The thief uses that credit card number to buy the game for themselves.
3. They actual CC owner initiates a chargeback for a fraudulent purpose and the thief gets to keep the key?

Do I have that right?
Basically yes, but, Valve is so supposed to do their due diligence by going in and revoking those keys that have been reported as stolen. This is almost entirely Valve not doing their jobs.

Is anyone really surprised about this? Valve barley does anything but collect money and could give a rats ass about supporting us customers.

How to control the mass ....give them a app with pukemon , pretty sure some1 is getting idea's over there...god people are sooo easy to control welcome to the future Clown

This game will die off soon enough. But good for Nintendo for making such an impact on the App market. I for one dont play this game, not my cup of tea.

I would think this is the biggest app around the world, seems like most everyone is doing it. I even heard people are doing this at Auschwitz, they had to put up signs telling people to not do it there.

I played it a lot, but at a certain point the game completely breaks down. It's fun, but it could have been so much more fun with better design decisions.

^ This,

I played it for a long time. but it just wears on you after a while. gets really old fast.

There's no real sense of accomplishment. Now if they would let you run around as one of the people and actually doing the fighting in the base and the outlands. Then it would have been a much better and engaging game.

Still can't believe they released JC3 without MP/co-op support... JC2 was just crying out for it.

I got bored of JC3 after 13h.
If it had had MP/CO-OP, I'd still be playing it!

Won't be buying JC4 without co-op at launch!

No kidding, I was wondering the same thing too. just a boat load of missed opportunity is what they missed.

Something I understand is Botting for relieving the grind game.

But I've never understood full on cheating like Autoaim and such.. I don't see how people enjoy it. It must be a griefer thing.

^ This!!

And this is why I dont play PVP anymore. I stick to Coop. To me thats a much more fun thing to do when playing with friends.

I was really excited about this game until I watched a playthrough review. Then it turned into a Star Wars Darth Maul wannabe game. Where are the guns? I don't want to run around cartwheeling all over the place all the time. That's just really lame.

One of my favorite games, but I want to see a new one. Not DLC.

The Devs said there will be a new one but not for a while. so I take it its in the works but a few years down the road. Im good with that as long as its an updated 64 bit engine and has a better planet system layout then what they got now.

I got this game for free when I purchased a new video card and never played it.

Judging by my friends who picked this up and then promptly went back to playing Path of Exile within a few days, I figured this game wouldn't be worth my time for a while.

From the sounds of it, they made it worse.

Ah well, looks like I'm not missing out

For the SP aspect, you will like it and have fun, its the DZ that's a complete waste of time and not worth all the Bullshit that goes on in there. Until they weed out and ban more than half the cheaters the game will never be any good until that day comes.

But don't hold your breath.

Seems like there are a lot of VR games coming out...how many people actually have VR units?

VR is seriously getting out of hand. I personally will not put some stupid VR device on my head and years from now wonder why my eyes are all fucked up like in the movie the Jerk.

And that looks lame as shit, floating weapons? Give me a fucking break!!

Yep, here we go, more people bitching about something they don't understand. The "floating guns" thing is becoming standard because unless people want to strap MORE shit to their arms, the game can't always properly guess your arm location, and IF IT IS WRONG, you will flip the fuck out as your brain tries to figure out why your arms are broken. Also, when you're playing, you DON'T NOTICE the guns are floating.

You and Cutter and everyone else on here who hates technology that's beyond what they can comprehend won't believe me, but whatever. Until you play around with it, you CANNOT understand why it's so incredible. You think that it's just a monitor on your face, and 3D, and so you think that sounds pretty lame and have written it off.

YES, it's true that most VR titles out right now are glorified tech demos. This is literally like having to start all over on game design. They're still working out First Person locomotion, as teleporting doesn't feel right and "sliding along" makes people sick. If someone is given enough visual cues, you can put them on a moving platform, but that again limits what kinds of games that can be done.

But then there are the things that we can do in VR that you CANNOT do on a monitor. You can have swordfights where you actually have to maneuver your sword around their armor, then go explore a dungeon where you may need to physically crouch to get under a swinging blade (Vanishing Realms). There's a bizarre gun fetishist game where reloading actually makes you eject your clip and physically insert a new one...and it doesn't approximate. You need to ACTUALLY get the clip into the gun, not just get it neat the socket (Hotdogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades). Shooting gallery games make a lot of sense in VR, so you'll see there are a lot of them popping up.

Also, VR is where "walking simulators" can thrive, as just being in a new environment is thrilling in VR. Sure, you can't slide along without being sick, but teleporting doesn't feel "cheap" in exploration games. You simply point to where you want to look around, click and you're there. If there's no combat, it simply takes the wasted time of moving over there out of it.

Ripping on VR without having tried it makes you just sound bitter. You will compare it to failed technology, because you can't understand why it's so much better than what you have. You're the horse rider, telling everyone the automobile is crap.

Lots of nothing ...the weapons are STILL floating 3D -VR = pushing shit out for tha money and SOME i see jumps right in defending there purchase ... Book

^ This!

And to the dumbass who thinks this new Tech is so fucking brilliant doesn't have clue fucking one. It's a fucking gimmick, and suckers like you suck it up without hesitation.
