Gamers shouldn't have to edit .ini files to get around a restriction that shouldn't exist. If they want to limit the framerate it should be a in-game option. It's not like high refresh rate monitors or SLI are uncommon.

You're aware that unlocking frame rate can bork the game in many other ways right? AI and Physics are frequently tied to it.

You're aware that the very few companies that connect AI and Physics to frame rate are mocked endlessly by their peers? : )

I considered this, then recalled how the Scholar upgrade shit left a bad taste...

Which isn't a definite no (including just launch day'ish purchase), as that also depends on my boredom level at that point in time... Much like why I'm waiting for FO4 tonight : )

Gamers shouldn't have to

But that is why we are the master race, drop your pair already, their lodged in your throat. Mamby pambies can't edit an .ini file now if needed.

Agreed though their idiots if it doesn't exist in menu. But my g-pa would roll in the grave at my first world problems.

I agree that Gamers shouldn't have to edit an .ini file, and it's far from an issue of ability...

But from a dev point of view, adding one (hundred) settings in an .ini file is a crap ton easier, quicker, cheaper, than adding the option in the UI (and then localizing it, making sure the window can scale, is on the right pane, etc)... As PC gamers, we've always gotten a lot of in-game options (relative to consoles that don't need that customization), and a lot more out-of-game options.

In the end, money is all that matters... When there is a significant number of purchases based on high refresh monitors and SLI, Devs will take those issues more seriously... And those of us too 'poor' to use that technology will continue to also not care : )

I know everyone's hopping up and down for Fallout 4 (I'll probably pick it up when it's GOTY for 50% off), but if you are interested in a Dungeon-Crawling RPG, "The Fall of the Dungeon Guardians" is a great game so far. It looks similar to the Grimrocks, but focuses on combat, leveling, gear more than those excessive puzzles. Definitely worth the asking price IMO.

Nice recommendation, and it's great when they actually have some gameplay right on the steam page... That third video shows members having a pretty huge action bar, and I'm liking the queue'n of attacks...

Already have F4 set up for ~36h from now, but I'm wondering if I can put enough time into this before then to make it worth it heh...

I understand people saying "Fallout 3 rehash" because it does "KIND" of look like Fallout 3 graphics.

But, that's not what people should even care about.

People should care about:

#1 - Is the game going to be fun throughout?
#2 - Is it going to have a story you'll talk about years down the road?
#3 - Is it going to have appropriate challenge sliders for peoples levels of enjoyment?

This is what you guys should be worrying about. Graphics are a bonus to a good game, so many game players/developers fail to realize this.

Who still goes back and plays Deus Ex or Legend Of Zelda or Doom 2? I do. Not because of the graphics that's for sure.

As someone that will be playing Monday night at midnight, I disagree with this twice... First off, people should care about what they feel is important; not some arbitrary list...

And for #1, #2, and #2, my answer/expectation is no.

"We’re adding an additional gold-purchasable stash tab for all players with the Reaper of Souls expansion. If you’re concerned that’s not enough, don’t worry—we’re also adding a way for players to earn additional Stash tabs, up to a maximum of 10, through our Season Journey feature."

Hmm, I hope the "Season Journey feature" isn't too bothersome. Overall... about FREAKING time.

Krovven will have a different point of view, but he doesn't really play from a point of what I call, reality... But I found about half the current 'Season Journey' to be manageable for a not-hardcore player... I mostly solo, so shit just takes longer, but even so, you have plenty of time throughout the season (even casually) to unlock 75% of it, if not more. I think that's about the point I got burned out.

It took me 30 minutes to pre-load, and now it's sitting on my drive and I can't play it. And I have a shiny new GTX 970 that needs a workout.

Is it Tuesday yet?

Walk over to your bed, hit T, and sleep for 60 hours...

Fallout never seems to match up to the awe of the Elder Scrolls games. It's not that Skyrim had cutting edge visuals but it didn't look dated like Fallout 3 and Fallout 4.

Go compare Skyrim's graphics to Witcher 3's. Skyrim is definitely dated. But that's not why we play the Elder Scrolls games and Fallout games. We play them because of the story and the exploration. Well, that's why I play them.

I play for the dog hair physics...

After looking at the builder, I'm more confused on where to go, but I'm initially thinking a Str/Agi Punch/Pistol/Sneak build... I'm really not sure if the Punch part is going to be a waste, because of how important shooting appears to be...

But there are a few neat perks scattered around that I'd like to try... I don't know if I'll like it enough for a single play through, let alone multiple, so ya, I'm confused what to try heh...

Edit: Looked again, now I want 3 Charisma for the loner perk, and the rest in Luck for the Crit stuff... I'm just going round and round, convincing myself to pick the game up it seems ; )

Gamers: The same group who yell "It's about gameplay not graphics!" then cry "Meh, the graphics aren't as great as I want, no good... skip." as they line up for a BF battlefront.
The issue is that it looks like a mod rather than a AAA game. That wouldn't be a problem if not for the AAA price tag. It's not like they've demonstrated much improvement in the way of gameplay either.

This seems really contradictory to me... What would a mod to F3 add? A hundred hours of content, or a few high res textures?

Of the huddreds of games with mod support I've played, I've seen like three high quality CONTENT mods, so F4 very specifically screams 'not a mod' to me...

As for Dacron's complaint... Does it bother you if I like Action RPGs, but not RTS games? Platformers but not FPS'? A genre is just a collection of accepted attributes, so not liking the graphics of a game is just as valid as, 'oh, it has RPG elements, and I don't want that shit mixed into my FPS goodness' (incidentally, that's crazy, because RPG elements are good in any game ; ).

Yeah, zero interest in this. It looks all around bad and resembles a bad soap opera more than a Fallout game. And no intro by Ron Perlman? So than it's really not a Fallout game except in name and general setting is it? Yeah, I'll check it out...when it hits the bargain bin.



I'm not sure what's up with this, because his voice is in the game... Maybe it's just not revealed yet...

Edit: And he's credited as Narrator

yeah, new engines do take years... so? they're working on a 20 year old engine, they make boat loads of cash from every game they ship with it, why haven't they been working on this in the background?

Why ask questions for which you already know the answer?

they have no one to blame but themselves. wow didnt die because it got old.. it died because the developer shot themselves in the foot from lack of content and deciding they knew what the players wanted more than the players did.

Which players are these that actually know what they want? Within the realm of reality that is...

Am I missing something or is the game genre not even described?

'Reveal a char a week' screams MOBA (Ugh) or whatever Overwatch is...

I don't get the point of this teaser shit though... I imagine they think it excites people to hear more, but it does the exact opposite... The only reason I was interested up to this point is the name Paragon, and that's gone...

Glad you're ok, Blue!

If you don't mind me asking, what age are you that you had your first procedure?


You are not his telecom provider, you didn't make his OS. You are not Google, you are not the NSA, so you have no right to ask for that information! It's private!

Do those entities ask for that information?
