Would like to see some gameplay, but I liked the implications in the video...

Think I'm gonna take a break from buying a TV this Boxing Day Sale Season... Previous two years in a row was enough for now ; )

Was hoping for some better sales on other stuff, but alas, another letdown...

The best 'spoiler' joke I saw was someone saying Yoda dies... The person freaks out about spoilers... But he died in Ep 6 heh...

And of course... Sith kills Dumbledore...

I picked this up a year or two ago for PS3... After seeing it compared to Demons/Dark Souls a bunch... Extremely disappointing, but I should go back and give it more of a chance... Some day...

Last three years have all started on the Thursday before X-mas, so I was expecting today... Doesn't matter so much anymore... Only game I'm interested in checking prices on is FC4, and even then, I'll just keep waiting if it's over $10 or so. I need to put those last few (dozen?) hours into Fallout 4 to 'make room' though...

News Comments > Dying Light The Following Story Trailer
8. Re: Dying Light The Following Story Trailer Dec 16, 2015, 21:41 Alamar
 
Very early weapons break crazy fast, so keeping extras around helps a lot...

Later on, I switch to throwing melee weapons, and eventually pick up the durability skill, both of which make a good deal of difference... Went through the game a second time a month or so ago, and never had to chuck a weapon because it just ran out of repairs... But again, I was throwing them, and the game still has (from DI) an annoying bug that will kill your thrown melee weapons at times... Either stuck somewhere you can't highlight to retrieve, or fall through shit... Add the possibility of dying after throwing one or two and them possibly not being there when you get back, I went through a dozen or so weapons... Never had a problem affording blue+ ones when I needed to buy a new one though, but then, I also searched a lot.

Horizons was released yesterday - NOT EARLY ACCESS, BLUE YOUR HEADLINE IS WRONG - Horizons was shipped after several weeks of beta, where 6 major updates were issued to address bugs and player feedback.
You might want to tell Frontier that, give they're selling it as EA to existing players in the spam mail I just got...
You'll see we have initially termed Elite Dangerous: Horizons an 'Early Access' release to highlight our normal process of rapid build support to our broad audience, many of who have joined our community very recently.

Plus, that handy link above to Steam that shows Early Access Game in a big blue, very obvious, bar...

Been considering the Intel Core i7 5960X myself, as I'm at a point where I'd like to put together a full system... Also considering the Intel PCIe 1.2 TB SSD (2.4k read vs the usual ~540 for drives), but I'm not sure I want to throw that much money at a new system... On the fence ; )

Throw in a 980 Ti and I'm up to over $3k for the system, which is likely going to run 20% faster than my current heh... But it's fun to buy stuff, so we'll see ; )

I don't get it. Why would you want to do this?

I'd like to play PS4 in a window on my PC while I'm doing other stuff... I can already do this, with dual displays, but it'd be nice to have more options.

I guess my experience is unique (at least in this thread)... While, as stated, the drive to find Shaun and follow the story is minimal at the beginning, when it should have a stronger pull, I had to force myself to stay away from that quest line after it 'really got started'...

And yes, I was yelling at Kellog to return my son! : )

I'd like the travel bug fixed... I started a new char because of it, and I don't want to do the BoS quests again in case it fucks up again...

Looks nice and crisp at 4k, but a lot of AA issues in the vid, and the extra 'crispness' points out just how angular a lot of models are...

In the end, none of that matters... Peeps will love it : )

I didn't... I picked up JC and JC2 years after release, and I found myself fighting with the controls, so I didn't play more than 30m or so. Hopefully this one is better, but I'll never find out ; )

In before the "rosy-colored glasses" assholes try to ruin some good memories with their stupid shit. Half Life 2 was a genuinely good game. There are games which stand the test of time, HL2 is one of them. As is HL1.

I disagree... Does that make me a "rosy-colored glasses" asshole? : )

Did this actually happen to any of you, or is this the usual BN comment section?

Just checked mine, and no changes...

I'm moving like a snail in F4. So much to see and explore...going to be a loooong game.


It really floors me how much content these games have these days... Sometimes, when I get up high on a building, I just look around and marvel at the crazy number of man-hours it took to just model/texture all this shit... And the amount of detail with placed items and what not... Went into a jail cell earlier, and there were chems stashed in the corner, behind a pillar, so that the cops wouldn't see them...

So much scrolling... I'm having nightmares about it...

Carry around the usual 200 pieces of crap... Oh look, a T-45 Armor piece I can throw in my 'bank' for later... I should count, but I think I had to flick the mousewheel like 20 times to get down to T to click it, as container management lists every single item...

Like the previous games, you can click the little arrows to the left or right of where it says "My Inventory" or "<container name>" to switch from a full listing of contents to those categories that exist in your Pip-boy, weapons, apparel, aid, misc, ammo, etc. They've also directly implemented a sorting feature that we used to have to install a mod for, you can sort by weight and caps value, maybe a couple others.

Hmmm... Just checked, and I have no arrows on the left side for sorting MY stuff, but clicking on the name cycles through the types, so thanks for that ; )

On a some what related note for those who could not resist, how's the default UI? I know Skyrim's was a mess of consolitis and I ended up quitting and grabbing SkyUI about 10 minutes into the game.

The UI is fine. Pretty minimalist overall. It has the typical Bethesda problem that five items fit in one inventory screen so you wind up scrolling 17 hojillion times, but it's not the terrifying crap that the Skyrim UI was.

I do like the one click to dump off crafting 'Junk' though, which I did before scrolling through 200 items above... I did go through and cut my inventory down to the 50 to 80 essential items mostly because of weight restrictions) after this though ; )

I asked for a Steam refund already.

Sound issues right off the bat, could hear the female speaking, but males lips just moved with no sound. Half the controls would not work, check forums, countless complaints about the interface, gave up. No in-game option for changing FoV or turning off mouse acceleration? I don't care if you can turn it off by editing files *you actually have to edit 3 files each*, this is clearly a console port with not even one ounce of PC-centric effort.

Epic failure. Incredibly disappointing, have been playing Bethesda games since Arena: The Elder Scrolls.

That's pretty shitty... Glad you were able to get a refund at least ; )

I've had a few minor annoyances, but nothing that detracted from the fun very much...
