Was going to install these for Civilisation VI but after reading the forum topic I think I'll hold off for a bit. I have a feeling we're going to see a hotfix released soon.

Couldn't disagree more. I felt like they took out the good from the game and left bare bones that were really, really bare. On top of it, the plot felt less throwback and more generic, and the decision to go with an eye-searing red sky with pink and purple details wasn't fun. That was usually 5 minutes in an 80s movie, not a full 5 hours.

I adore FC3/FC4. Found this to be mostly just boring.
Agreed. I loved the settling of Blood Dragon but the gameplay was shallow and it got tedious rather quickly. That's in stark contrast to FC3/FC4, which were really compelling and replayable.

I use Start10 to replace the default Start Menu. Microsoft desperately needs to hire some decent artists and designers, as it's pretty obvious the icons were designed by talentless managers who've never used a graphic design program before.

In this case its not microsofts fault the UWP platform supports playing with other PC's (and xbox's for that matter); activision chose not to include it. Microsoft also offered up the refunds with no stress straight up with no fuss and next to no internet prompting.

but its cooler to troll MS right? who needs the truth?
Microsoft should refuse to allow the game on the platform without PC support or at the very least warn people on the store page. Imagine buying a pair of scissors only to find out they don't cut 99% of paper. As it stands it's not acceptable to simply offer a refund after the fact.

You'd have to be an idiot to buy anything from the Windows Store. Seriously, it took me three weeks to be able to download and play Gears of War 4 because of issues with downloading the game and installing it. Part of it related to a four year old buy where the Windows Store doesn't create a folder it needs, causing the update to fail.

What astonishes me is that the Windows Store version won't support play with the Steam version. In PC gaming that's unprecedented but sadly not surprising given this is Microsoft we're talking about.

It used to be the case that in order to do that you had to contact Steam support. I don't envy you; Steam support sucks.
Considering how much Valve makes their support is completely unacceptable.

piss off - moba, free to play , early access
this is a good update

upper right corner of featured bar-> small tooltip down arrow -> preferences

or settings/ account details / preferences
Well, that's an improvement though it's a shame to limit it to just three.

Personally I'm not a fan of the new design, though it's better than the previous one. It still shows me too much content I have zero interest in and it's hard to see the relevant content. And there are so many sales they just become noise - 440 products on sale this week and it's not even a big sale.

2. Re: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for Linux Nov 3, 2016, 11:19 theyarecomingforyou
 
If Valve wants to get developers onboard then it should be provided support to developers and pushing for a simultaneous launch. Valve makes huge amounts of money from Steam, which would easily pay for a team of Linux specialists to assist developers. That's how nVidia gets developers to incorporate Gamesworks features.

Right now SteamOS is just a novelty that has little in the way of backing. Valve needs to ensure that at least 75% of AAA releases are available for SteamOS to make it at all credible.

Look at Codemasters' F1 series - F1 2010, 2011 and 2012 don't support Linux; F1 2013 does; F1 2014 doesn't; F1 2015 does; F1 2016 doesn't. Call Of Duty 1 doesn't; 2 does; MW1-3 do; BO 1-3 don't; IW doesn't. There's absolutely no bloody consistency.

Decent trailer but I'll wait for the reviews on this one. I loved the original but I'm concerned whether it will be fresh enough to entice me, as the footage I've seen so far looks very similar to the original. I also wish YouTube didn't have such shitty video quality, as it tends to make all video game footage look washed out and blurry.

I backed Wasteland 2 during the Kickstarter and gave it a go when it was released but have to say I was rather underwhelmed. The game felt like it was designed in the 90s and not in a nostalgic sort of way.

Still, I wish them every success with it. Clearly there's a market for a sequel.

I'm glad that Valve is finally cracking down on this, as some publishers are noticeably worse than others at representing their games. It sounds like Valve is preparing for an overhaul of the store, which is much needed.

I find I don't buy as many games on Steam these days because the store page is a nightmare to navigate and the sales aren't what they used to be. The library could also do with an overhaul, as the UI is very dated.

My suspicion is that Microsoft is using the fact that there was considerable opposition to Steam and Origin that later subsided as those platforms improved tremendously as a model as to why they are stubbornly sticking to their guns on this. The problem with this is that MS apparently still has no clue how to serve the PC audience.
If it thought it could just plough past the opposition it wouldn't have killed off GFWL. The Windows Store has no download scheduler or limiter, doesn't allow installs to specific folders, encrypts downloads with DRM to restrict modding and customisation, has serious issues with resuming downloads, it horribly designed and is being forced upon people.

Prez wrote on Oct 29, 2016, 15:58:
I had Windows 10 until I reformatted and reinstalled Windows 8.1 and I am in no hurry to go back to 10. I want to play Gears 4 but not enough to use Windows 10 or the godawful Winstore.
Windows 10 is the most fully featured OS, which is why I still use it. However, the interface looks like it was designed by executives - there's no way that Microsoft has even a single artist working in its UI team. The Action Centre and Settings app are abominations.

I'd love to see Valve or Google make a serious attempt at the desktop market, as Microsoft's utter lack of competition has resulted in it becoming extremely complacent. At first I didn't mind Windows 10 but now I despise it. Every update seems to make it was. What twathead decided that UAC prompts should appear BEHIND the window you're using - I'm often sitting there thinking the app hasn't loaded, only to find a UAC prompt hiding away. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is appalling.

Meanwhile Steam has had this feature for over a decade and has a functional download client, unlike the Windows Store. It doesn't even have a download limiter. Whoever designed it should have their genitals shoved in a blender... not even joking.

1. Re: Gears of War 4 Adding New Maps Oct 29, 2016, 13:43 theyarecomingforyou
 
I don't give a shit about new maps when the game itself won't even fucking install! If you thought GFWL was bad then that's nothing in comparison to the aborted foetus that is the Windows Store. I spent days trying to get it to install - using WSReset, manually downloading the installer, deleting folders, etc - but with no luck. It's apparently a widespread problem.

Microsoft can fuck right off if it thinks it's going to get people to buy games through that monstrosity. Whoever designed it should have anthrax inserted into their face with a cheese grater.

Actually, it absolutely isn't. Arma (and consequently DayZ) employ a unified system and have done for years. And it's still pretty clunky. Clunkiness is inevitable and ineradicable, because in the end you're shackling the first person experience to predefined animations that other people are watching.
ArmA is horrible to play and one of the reasons I was concerned about unifying animations. However, CIG has already eliminated the clunkiness and has demoed that in the vision stabilisation video and at CitizenCon.

Peeeling wrote on Oct 23, 2016, 16:34:
On the whole I think it's a white elephant of a feature. Counterstrike and Overwatch (and Quake before them) are played professionally for very high stakes, and nobody thinks they would be improved by making the FPS experience slower and clunkier for the sake of 'fidelity'.
Unification of animations is important for customisation. In Star Citizen they can implement items of clothing once rather than having to make them for both first and third person view; same with weapons, accessories, etc. It also means the player is completely aware of how visible they are, because their view isn't being rendered in a fake first person view.

Other developers have tried to unify animations before - Crytek attempted it but abandoned the idea - but Star Citizen is the first to get it right and it's only early days still.

I still play this quite often. It's not the best game out there but it's decent enough. I backed the crowdfunding campaign for it and only started playing it years later.

Vision stabilization? Like that's ground breaking stuff right there! Why do they need such a thing in a FPS game/engine? Cos Chris Roberts, master game director, wants the first and third person animations to be the exact same ..... it'll will make the game so much better you know!
Actually, it absolutely is groundbreaking. All the animations are unified, meaning that to add a new weapon into the game only requires making it and animating it once. In the long run it will save them time. It means that the player sees whatever others around them see - there's no faking it. The vision stabilisation was the tech required to make it feel like a conventional first person shooter, as currently the movement is very clunky.

What? When did that happen? I thought you were enjoying the fuck out of the game and it already had more content than many other AAA games at release?
I enjoy it and play it regularly - I played for a few hours earlier with one of the friends I made at CitizenCon last year. The gameplay is fun, despite how basic it is. However, when you can only get 12-24fps that will obviously impact your enjoyment of the PU (which is only one element of the current release). And I never said it already has more content than many other AAA games - I said it would eventually.

If you are interested in the game then I would honestly advise holding off on the Free Fly events until 2.6 or 3.0 is released, as right now the 2.5 release is pretty shoddy. You can see the potential but playing on the PU will get you 12-24fps because of a server side bottleneck - that's the framerate I get with an overclocked GTX 1080. You can play Arena Commander at 60fps, so if you're going to try it then I suggest starting there.

With 2.6 we should get vision stabilisation, a new menu system, Star Marine, rebalanced flight mechanics and a new flyable ship. With 3.0 comes the updated netcode, which should significantly improve performance - along with a huge amount of new gameplay content.

But no-one can fault CIG for smoke and mirrors when they are allowing anyone to try the game for free and see for themselves.
