Not just "inspired" by Quake, it looks like it's using the Quake engine.

Yea, definitely, that was high octane Quake for sure.

At work and at home for the longest time I used the older Microsoft Wireless 2000. Best mouse I had ever used. the battery life for that mouse is insane. last for up to 5 to 6 months on two AA batteries.

Still use this mouse at work, been a really good mouse. and the fit and conformity is well done. I really wish more mice developers would look at conformity more. to many mice these days at really badly designed and dont fit well in your hand or their comfort level is just bad.

All it needs is some optimizations, gosh. and maybe some more netcodes
Simply put, Star Citizen has a frame-rate issue so bad it ruins everything. There are glimpses of 60 frames per second when servers are fresh and populations low, but as soon as people join, the frame-rate plummets again. What it means is that you're unlikely to ever see more than 20 frames per second regardless of graphics settings, regardless of PC (within reason), and usually you'll hover around 15 frames per second.

Funny, I was just talking to a friend of mine here at work about this same exact concern about server population and what causes this was going to have on the games performance.

I dont have any good feeling about this game ever performing well. I really hope that we are still able to host our own servers. I have no interest at all being on populated servers and having to deal with asshole pvp grifers.

Wish SteelSeries would get back into the wireless mouse market. They make excellent mice, but once going wireless I can't go back to wired mice. The Logitech G900 spoiled me

I agree, I have the Rival 700 mouse, and love it. Its fits my hand great. I wish they would come out with a wireless version of this mouse.

I've used wireless for years. but I cant find me a good wireless mouse that conforms to my hand. Most of these asshats make a mouse these days that reversible, what that does is makes the right side of the mouse with hard jagged edges that digs into my fingers.

I like a rounded smooth edges mouse on the right side so it does not dig into my fingers after long hours of game playing.

This wasn't him, it was his investor.

Maybe, but you can bet he will have something to say about all of this and still find a way to blame others for the games failure.

I know for a fact many of us who knew this game was coming played it in beta access and most felt this game was shit for the get go.

Which is why on release the game did not do well at all.

Beamer wrote on Jan 3, 2018, 09:09:
We've all seen examples of people who prioritize gaming over other things, including personal relationships, work, hygiene, sleep, etc. We've seen the people who have no IRL friends but e-friends. We've seen the people who have died marathon gaming because they stayed up for days on stimulants. We've seen 4chan.

But I'd say that the gaming is symptoms, not causes. Yes, gaming may enable some of that behavior in ways not found previously, but the behavior isn't due to gaming.

Actually, except maybe for the Korean internet cafe CS deaths.

Uh oh Beamer, I guess you had better get checked in.

Yes and no. Windows notepad is awesome for stripping basically everything out a text cut and paste. Notepad++ is too smart for this occasionally. I have both open 99% of the time.

I prefer Boxer Text Editor. Works like a champ and does everything!!

Is it any surprise? EA has nothing on Activision for sleaze, greed, and stupidity. Along with Take2 and Warner Bros, both EA and Activision are run by clueless corporate fuckwits who don't give a shit about their customers beyond how much more money they can milk out of their wallets past the initial game purchase. Fuck Activision Blizzard.

You need to shut the fuck up, your another one of these assholes that hasn't played the game but here you are jumping all over the game about shit you know nothing about.

Eververse is only P2W in the sense that a large part of Destiny is trying to obtain cosmetic gear and Bungie launched Destiny 2 with all the interesting cosmetics in Eververse with nothing for dedicated players to actually strive for. In Destiny 1, all the gorgeous cosmetic gear was tied to completing achievements or milestones in the game such as doing raids on Hard Mode or beating certain challenge encounters. Destiny 2 has none of that and everything that looks like it had any sort of design thought put into is in Eververse.

So yeah... You can dump tons of cash into Eververse and get a really pretty armor set, a quality-of-life ghost, sparrow, and ship but none of those are really that integral to game play to call it P2W. Comparing this bullshit to EA's bullshit is comparing shit oranges to shit apples. Both have valid reasons to be pissed at, but just removing Eververse from Destiny 2 won't fix anything. If there was actual armor sets, ghosts, sparrows, and ships to obtain outside of Eververse, then 90% of these complaints would disappear.

This is exactly what I was thinking.. I was like "did the people writing these threads even play the game?"

Glad to see it's not just me. These people are trolling about cosmetics. Not exactly what I would call P2W.
I guess it depends on how you define P2W. If "winning" means looking the prettiest, well...


Ill second this, these morons haven't played the game not one bit. there is not one thing in the eververse thats pay to win. I have a ton of items, ships, speeders and armors outfits that I did not spend one cent for. I got them from in game leveling and free Bright Engrams. Fucking people need to play the game before whinning about it.

I played the Destiny 2 demo and I was left very unimpressed. Having never playing the first Destiny, I was expecting combat gameplay to feel very similar to Halo, where you must use a different strategy to deal with each enemy type. However, what I experienced was basically a shallow run and gun FPS and I quickly became bored and uninstalled the game after reaching the settlement.

Having said that, I'm glad to see the PC version sell well. The more attention publishers and developers give to the PC platform, the better.

You clearly haven't played the demo that much. Because Destiny 2 definitely has to use tactics to take out Elites in the game. You have to use your energy weapons to break down their shields fast or good luck sitting there trying to break an elites shield with the other weapons.

Seriously, dont comment about something you really have no idea about.

Seems to me they are trying to pimp out these operators. Is there really any difference between any of them? And I mean, is there really any difference that is noticeably different besides a new look.

What makes them so special that any the others cant do?

I recall playing this on a free weekend, and I really didn't care for the feel of the game, the weapons felt odd and very over sized from what I remember. It just didn't feel like the old Rainbow Siege games like Vegas and past games.

Damn, another 4 players Coop game. This year is looking pretty good for Coop gaming. Looking forward to this one.

If only I had friends

Indeed. Online friends, that is. But then again, anyone well into their twenties will have a hard time getting a group of friends together at the same time. And then, once you finally have that group herded together for the evening, one will suddenly have to go 20 minutes in. Another will have the group pause every 5 minutes for whatever reason. The third will get in a fight with his girlfriend. You're the forth, and you'll have wasted your evening feeling greatly undone for the rest of it.

That's why I say: fuck co-op games.

That is a problem I dont have. I have many friends who love playing Coop games. Plus we have Lan Sessions twice a month. So this stuff works out great for us.
