And that's why myself and most other gamers stick with what works. Intel!!

Thanks AMD for at least keeping Intel Honest, that's what really counts and I do hope they make a good comeback.

I was actually pleasantly surprised... went in with low expectations but found it enjoyable in co-op.

Open world, lots of different way to complete missions, heaps of different weapons, vehicles, attachments etc.

Yes, it could have been a lot better as it felt a little shallow, sound affects lacked punch, vehicle mechanics could use work, plus the AI was iffy, and i really hated having those stupid allies cruising around GTA drive by style (hope there's a way to turn this off).

But overall, i found it much more enjoyable than the bore-fest that was the division.

Will be buying it for the co-op. Played 12 hours in the beta and only saw 2 regions.

As for Arma, Arma 2 was great in co-op, but Arma 3 was beyond terrible. I don't know what they were thinking there, but the 'game' felt like an actual chore.

ARMA 3 was shit, when the devs opted to not make the campaign coop. that killed the game for me and many others.

Yea, they added Coop back to it later. but the game just felt so bland, not nearly as much fun as Wildlands.

Nah, if you want that, play Arma. I played the Ghost Recon Wildlands beta. It was fun, buggy, and I have to say, way too hard. Enemies spawning all over the place....

Also, whomever wrote the dialog... don't let that person write anything else.

Arma, is a snooze fest. Wildlands was far more fun and better. Sorry, but your delusional.

The AI teammates do seem pretty simple but my initial impression is that they're decent as a base-of-fire. Sit them back, sneak in, when things go wrong they provide supporting fire. Sync shots are handy too.

Performance is poor, I have had to turn down so many options that it's uglier than similar recent games.

Maybe your pc is not up to the task? I have the setting at Ultra and holding around 44FPS on a 4K Monitor and the game looks pretty incredible.

Huh. I want to maintain 60 FPS almost all the time but still, it does sound like my system is under performing on this game compared to CJ and you. I'm running it at 1440p (90% scaling) on a 1070 and most options down to medium levels. Maybe my drivers need updated.

Well, there is that. NVidia hasn't released any optimized drivers for the game yet, and the final product will be better optimized.

I still dont get the rabid fascinating for a lot of gamers to always have 60FPS or higher at all times.

As long as the screen inst lagging or slowing down, I dont see the point of complaining about it.

I didn't play this, but from the videos it looked like Just Cause: Ghost Recon.

You're actually right. This game reminded me of Just Cause and it also confronted me with the fact that Just Cause is literally 20 times better, gameplay wise.

This game is garbage, folks. Take every important factor that must be good for a game to be good and make that factor shallow and just feel "meh" and what you get is Wildlands. And all of that just so that co-op is doable. Fucking shite. *hits bell*

All im going to say is that you are full of shit!!

I've played both, and there is no resemblance at all.

My problem with this one is the same problem I have with any other coop games. Unless you have some dedicated friends that are available the time you are available to play coop with you, the game is pretty terrible in single player mode.
I am hearing it is a blast in coop mode though.
Played a couple of missions solo and I like it so far. The AI companions dont get in my way and behave pretty OK. I really thought I wouldn't enjoy it that much. Graphics are just OK, though. Framerate on XBone is not consistent, better on a 960gtx on my PC.
Yeah I've played a mission in solo as well, and it seemed like Ai was just standing there not doing much at all. I was looking at the map trying to find the next mission while getting shot at and Ai was just looking around
You're correct though at least they do not get in my way to do the missions, so that's a plus I guess but this game feels like it's geared towards coop play not solo.
I think The Division does a much better job at catering solo and coop players alike.

Just my opinion of course your mileage may vary

You have to command the AI, they will for the most part sit back and wait. And sometime engage if they get engaged. But you have a command menu for them learn to use it!!

Yeah, it's called not wasting a TRILLION dollars on a military-industrial complex you really have no need of.

Yea, you say that up until the enemy shows up in your back yard and you cant do a damn thing about it. Its called preventive measures. Always be prepared no matter what!

Is this Valve pulling this? or is this being mandated by those countries? I know for a fact that here in California, you can not be taxed on digital deliveries.

Guess Sony doesn't like making money. Yet another console exclusive that could have sold 10X as much by releasing on all platforms.

No kidding right? I hope they at least allow this to be ported over after a few months. I have a PS4, but I also have a ZIM4 box so I can use my mouse and keyboard. works like a charm.

Here's a lets play of the games action. looks pretty good so far.

Good? that looks horrific.. reminded me of Restricted Area (2004) and that is not a compliment. And the let's play seems like super early stuff, no level up system, no loot system.. wtf?

Oh, you mean like how every other Top Down shooter looks and plays? Yea, OK!

I enjoyed the beeta but there's no way in hell I'm paying $80 for the game. If it were $40 I'd bite but otherwise no.

Perhaps some of you found the controls weird because they're tied to skills? One thing I didn't like was the flight controls for choppers and planes. I was using my gamepad and it was still a PITA flying around. And the guns on choppers need to track targets on the ground. Otherwise I didn't have a problem with them.

The chopper controls were worse than cancer. Seriously, worst control scheme ever, some keys can't be rebound, and it's really RNG flying.

Come on Slick they were not as bad as your say they were. and yea, I ran into a few keys that I was not able to rebind. the INSERT, HOME,PgUp,PgDn,Del,End keys. that irritated me to no end, Im a lefty and I use that side of the keyboard. so I did post this to the m and reported it.

It was <$42 in late December on GMG (30% off), which is where I bought it, a price I consider...acceptable.

Gamers Gate has it on sale to. the Gold edition for $77

All version are on sale there.

Those guns on the helo are stationary, no way you can have them track a target. I didn't have much trouble with flying the Helo, it was the plane that took a lot of getting used to. One sudden moment in the wrong direction would put you in a nose dive.

If the beta's any indication, 1440p is not stable at all, even with top end hardware. I was playing smoothly at 40-60 FPS at 1080p with an FX-6350 and a GTX 970, myself.

Not sure what your issues were, but I didn't run into any. I'm running on GTX 1080 FTW on a 4K 28" monitor 2840 x 2160 had an average of 38 to 42 FPS.

Had the graphics at maximum, with vsync turned off on game, but turned on in the control panel. I thought that wasn't bad considering there are no optimized drivers out yet for the game.

Other Then that I had a really great time playing the game Coop. Ran into a few small bugs but nothing ground breaking.

Drive was a bit of a challenge at the start, but we eventually got the hang of it. but yes, that definitely needs some work. Hopefully that will get fixed. No issues with gun play, in fact I thought the gun play was very similar to The Division.

I bought the Gold Edition, I really liked what I saw and played. The open world was pretty impressive looking. Cant wait to see the rest of the game.
