News Comments > Metal Gear Survive to Require Internet Connection, Offer Microtransactions

What they really mean is that they have designed the game is such a way that the online requirement is there to try and keep people from hacking the games currency.

I dont understand why every damn game has to be micro transactioned to death. Its like you cant even buy a game anymore without this bullshit raising its ugly head up.

News Comments > More Destiny 2 Progression Complaints
1. Re: More Destiny 2 Progression Complaints Jan 18, 2018, 10:10 Darks
 
Yea, this one is a real bitch. Bungie screwed over everyone with this bullshit. You can Speed run one of the hidden sectors in less then 3 mins. But with the new 10 min cool down its fucks you over so you cant speed run these areas. They could at least set the cool down to 5 mins. That would fix the issue.

I dont understand how they mange to keep fucking up so much. Its not like getting the faction tokens is a game breaking deal.

This exploit was only in one Lost Sector in the EDZ, all Bungie had to do to fix this bullshit was to make it so once you left the area the door would not reopen to allow you to backtrack. Bunch of idiots at Bungie.

If it's based on Alien and Aliens it might be cool, the latest movies hardly offer anything worth making a game over.

Totally agree on that.

I love the Aliens movie, that is the best setting they could go for.

News Comments > BATTLETECH Multiplayer Changes; Linux Edition Delayed
12. Re: BATTLETECH Multiplayer Changes; Linux Edition Delayed Jan 17, 2018, 15:14 Darks
 
Well, I reached out to HBS to get an answer about the new changes and if they have added Coop. Sadly, the answer is no. heres the replay.

Hi Rick,

We know that there are a lot of people who would love to see a co-op option for BATTLETECH but it was never on our list of features for the Kickstarter.

We'll be releasing PvP at the launch of the game but would love to eventually add the option for co-op.

Thanks for letting us know how strongly you feel about this feature - we really appreciate it.

Best,
Robin

While I am bummed that Linux support will come after launch, I have full faith that HBS will deliver on their promises. The SR games were awesome and had Linux clients.

I don't think this is campaign co-op so much as skirmish co-op but that's at least a start. If MW sells well for HBS, we might see either an update for campaign co-op or a new game with campaign co-op from the ground up. Full disclosure, I backed this thing for $250.

OK, that was what I was hoping. I knew it wasn't Campaign Coop. but it seemed to me that it has Skirmish Coop now. which is a good thing.

So, they didn't outright say it has Coop. but thats what they seem to be implying here. Did anyone else get that same feeling?

If so, his just went on my list of games to get for sure.

I never understood why they wanted to go all PVP in the first place. Nothing like playing Coop with a friend or 2 controlling their own Mechs or a lance.

For years and even at E3 I would always get on Mitch Gitlemas ass about the lack of Coop. Maybe hes finally seeing the light.

Im not wasting anymore time with you, people like you will never listen, in your mind no matter what anyone says you are always right. You want an example, go find a dictionary.

Can't even name one thing. I mean, how can you be right when you can't name a single thing supporting your claim?

Where in a dictionary would I see middle easterners fucking up the US? Sounds more like an encyclopedia thing, but even then, I can't imagine anything they're doing that we're not already doing in greater numbers.

Its very apparent you dont pay attention to whats going on in Europe. Again, Delusional!!!

Well the reality is if all those people from all those countries come here than it's going to be just as shitty here.

How does that follow at all? Immigrants come here all the time and make decent lives for themselves. They go to school, get jobs, raise families. Why does them coming from a war-torn place mean that suddenly the US will be a worse place for having them here?

Because there's only so many resources and jobs to go around. This reminds me of the movie Elysium where they show the ruined Earth and the paradise space station. Spoilers, the good guys win and the end shows poor Earth people flooding into the paradise... but the first thing that has to pop into any rational mind is "well it won't be paradise for long."

Not saying the U.S. is paradise by any means, but the point is it's not like the solution to the problems countries like Haiti face is to just move everyone living there to the U.S. That's a terrible simplistic notion. The better avenue is to use our wealth to help those people in their communities make changes for the better.

P.S. What Trump said was terrible from a political standpoint, which is his usual "problem." Though I put problem in quotes because his no bullshit speaking style is exactly what his core base love him for.

Again, people thought this about the Irish and the Italians. American survived. Prospered, even. Often, immigrants are hungrier than us, because they've seen how bad it can get.

And again, they're generally taking the lowest paying, least skilled jobs available. Who wants to be a migrant farmer? Certainly no Americans.

Beamer, you so far off base on this its not even funny. That used to be the case. The world has changed and so has America. your talking about migrants from south america. most of us are talking about the fucking trash coming from the middle east thats fucking everything up. Big Difference!!!

Again, sounds like what people said about the Irish and Italians.

What did they fuck up? And do you know any personally? Do you work with them?

You are so fucking delusional!!!

The ESA is very confused, Diversity was the greatness of the country, but that was many generations ago. The problem now is, we cant afford to open the doors to every asshole who feels the need to come here and sponge off the system.

The system cant support all of these immigrants now. And on top of that they come here and want to change our way of life and its ripping the country apart at the seems.

Sorry, but we need to stop letting so many in and fix the issues within. The Ship is sinking and these idiots cant see that.

Yeah I'd like to go just one day without Trump doing or saying something monumentally retarded.

It's no wonder people decided to believe Hillary Clinton is a reptilian child molester in a pizzeria. That's about what you have to believe in order to justify supporting this dementia patient.

I wonder if Trump is just a long con designed to make literally any future Republican candidate look like a fucking genius in comparison. Kinda like a store raising prices just so they can have a big sale later and put the price back to where it was.

You do know that some idiot on his staff wrote that into the script he was reading right? That wasn't Trumps fault. He was just reading what was written down. some dumb ass wrote F in front of the number 52 which is the amount of planes that were delivered.

The media will keep playing its hate towards Trump no matter what. Its actually pretty pathetic how the media trolls him.

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.
