Really strange that there is no mention of The Division in the driver. I know some of my friends were waiting on a new driver just for that game. Very odd they don't mention it.

Well this is unexpected and good news. I like these types of games, especially when it can be played Coop. Glad they got the game back on track.

Am I the only one who tried the beta an was already sick of that gameplay from that alone? Aside from shooting there wasn't really much to do there...

This is how you based your time in the beta and came to the conclusion the game is lame because they locked down the beta and only gave you a small taste of the real game.

Now had you played the final release of the game and based your decision then you would have some validity to your comment. But seriously, I take this comment as, I ate the ice cream cone, but I didn't taste the ice cream. That about sums it us here for you.

Seriously, I was amazed how much was held back from the beta in the original areas and how many missions popped up when you go back to the base and open up new areas for the med and tech centers. You guys really have no clue how much more content there is in this game but you all are basing your game play from a small beta that gave us literally nothing.

I'm really enjoying it as well. However, at level 7, I'm still using the starter weapons (although modded). I can't seem to find anything that increases the DPS over them. I should probably head to the DZ, but dammit, I want to improve the base! I suppose I could .. *gasp* .. buy a weapon from the vendor instead of waiting until one drops.

Now if I only had more time to play.

don't sell your gear/weapons to vendors, recycle it and use the materials at the crafting station. You can convert green materials into blue etc.
Found that out the hard way

Thanks for the tip bro, I haven't gotten too far in so this will help. I did read that crafting weapons and mods were most of the time better than what you can buy.

It's not getting great reviews on STEAM (mixed), not that is the be-all-end-all, but makes me hesitant to pull the trigger to drop $60 on it right now. Hopefully they'll have a free weekend trial at some point.

Sounds like most of you are having fun though!

That's the trick, don't pay full retail for games. Buying it on Steam offers no benefits as you still need to install uplay client.

You can buy the game for around $40 from many of the cd key e-stores.

Hell, at one point you could have gotten the game from GMG for 33 dollars.

I am running a single 970 and everything set to the max, 1080p.
The benchmark tool gave me avg 60fps
Might have vsync enabled forgot to check.

Not sure why you are getting bad performance with your cards.
I am running Win10 and the second last Nvidia drivers.
I didn't install the ones they've just came out with yesterday

although the almost-constant fuckup at launch for SLI makes me wonder why I bought this game day 1.

All I can say to this comment is, if you feel that way then good luck getting most any game from day one to work with SLI. SLI is not the industry standard for gaming. Only high end users with money to waste use it. most are more then happy using one card versus fighting with getting SLI to work properly.

Maybe you should play on a console? you might be happier in the end.

This is a perfect game for player killers, back stabbers and trolls. Have you seen those "Jumping jacks" videos??

Yes, Ive seen the childish idiots doing this. UBI will get around to banning or fixing this issue.

This all leads back to a few games i've played in the past. One was WOW Blizz fixed it by making players in the world and NPCs non blockable. Meaning you can walk through them. This also leads me to another game that got slammed for doing this exact same thing. Aliens, Colonial Marines.

I recall many people bashing the shit out of that game for this same exact thing you could do. This is why devs implement walking through NPCs and players. To avoid this dumbass shit from occurring and people abusing it.

That's interesting, I've got way better weapons as drops and just doing missions.
It's nice that you can carry your mods from one weapon to another too.

Same here, must be just some bad luck you ran into on your drops. I found an M1 Sniper Rifle that is just ripping guys to shreds. love that weapon. Also found a Police M4 that's kicking ass.

I've been doing a little of both, soloing and grouping. Did some missions on Hard Mode, and yes it's hard. But it sure is a lot of fun. The game has been a blast so far. Had no issues with the game crashing or lagging at all. Only the first night when they had some server issues that got resolved within an hour. but so far I have no complaints about the game.

If I had to really complaining it would be the lack of customizing features when creating your character.

Tom Clancy's The Division Suffers Frustrating Launch As UPlay Servers Become Unavailable

Lol! So typically Ubisoft.

Diablo 3 had a horrible launch and it wasn't Ubisoft. Most games locked to online DRM do.

More hate mongering going on as usual. This was something that occurred last night for about 30 to 40 mins. after that the game has been nothing but stable. Same old bullshit of people trying to beat the drums of hate.

And by the way, the black screen and crashing is related to Nvidias newest driver. Dont blame the game for something Nvidia fucked up.

Similar to Titan Quest to a fault, depending on one's perspective. Nearly all the class skill trees are copy+pasted over, with a few shuffles. Using the same engine as they did and changing so little, one has to wonder why development of Grim Dawn took as long as it did.


This has to be the asshat comment of the day. You gotta be joking with what you just said right? They built all of those levels from the ground up using the titan Quest engine. yes, but those are all new effects, skills and classes added to the game along with all new updated textures.

You seriously need to get your eyes checked if you think this game was something they just copy and pasted.

Backed this game from the very start and glad I did. The devs have been nothing short of great getting updates out and keeping the community informed.

They completed a monumental task with the small size team and the game reflects all the hard work they put into this game. It's been a great and fun game. Well deserved praise to the devs and Arthur for getting this game completed as promised.

Huge sales of 35% and more all around the place. Must not be selling well.

Wrong, this happens with every game that's about to get released. Its called flash selling and promotes the game even more. I could have bought the new Far Cry game from GMG last week for 33 dollars. does that mean that game didn't sell well either?

If I'm reading the fuckometer right, it's registering as zero.

Let me check again - yep, zero fucks.


Didn't mind the first one, but then they never gave us PC folk the sequels. Doesn't look like they plan to, but they still want to try to milk a re-release on PC. Fuck. That.

Wait, this doesn't include the original trilogy, just the first game, which already had a PC release?

Wow. I'd really thought it was the entire first 3 games.

Yep, they were just being lazy about this. I'm really surprised this got re-done as it is.

I liked the game and all, but I really hope this one bombs badly and slaps them in the face so hard they will think twice about screwing over the entire pc community and stop with the exclusive bullshit. It's bad enough we have to contend with the consoles doing this. Now M$ wants to pull this shit with a windows exclusive tag.

Here, let me fix the title so it reads correctly.

Gears of War: Ultimate Fuck you to Windows 7 Users Edition Released for Windows 10

There, now it's fixed.

So, let me get this straight, they can add DirectX 12 to a game that's 10 years old. But they can't make Windows 7 DirectX 12 compatible? Yea, right Microsoft!!

The atmosphere is the main selling point for the game, I don't think it'll have the longevity that some people are hopping for.

The only hook is to grind for higher DPS weapons... so you can kill people and AI faster with no end game?

Are you some kind of wizard? You mean, in like, no other online shooters you don't grind for higher DPS to kill things faster? *mind blown*

LOL. yes, this ^

My thoughts exactly.
