It plays smooth to me on fiber 75mbit. This coming from someone who played netquake (silky smooth) over quakeworld because quakeworld played terribly in this regard.

I would love a proper server browser, yes, but the matchmaking has worked okay. It's fun. Gameplay is very fast.

It needs lots of polish more than it needs more content! This game is not what many hoped it would be. Watch the player counts plateau or fall soon...

Hmmm I haven't read all of the reviews, but seems like we're still not hitting 60fps on 4k resolutions yet

Not true!! Only at max settings on some of the latest and most demanding games is that the case. In those select games, you can drop one or two graphic settings to high and gain a significant performance boost doing that.

I really don't understand the mindset that if it can't do max settings then it's not good enough. Fail! Some of those max settings are highly impacting performance with little or nearly no visible impact and of course offer no improvement in gameplay.

You don't need 64xAA uber max ultra mega or whatever useless feature.. IMO, max settings are a bad way to benchmark many games.

Certainly looked like someone in a dog suit, at first. Then the realization comes when it glances over, in a very human way, that it's really a dog! LMAO awesome.

Took them more than six months to release an expansion... 'Cause making one iz hard when your game engine is poorly executed (unstable) and your staff consistently puts out shoddy work, right Bethesda?

That security model sounds like a console game programming etiquette. Then add the UBI factor and... Hey UBI Factor sounds like a TV reality show gone bad.

The idea of Planetside 2 is a blast... I haven't played it in a long time but there were always engine and hit-detection issues that I just couldn't get over in order to enjoy what was going on.

Yes performance gets bad in big battles. IIRC it isn't multithreaded well or much. Same as you guys, I'm excited for their continued support. It is a great game.

Seriously, this shit just takes time. Most people here can not even begin to imagine the mountain of work that goes into providing mod tools of that quality.

This is what project planning is for. It only takes time if they don't allocate the programming resources in advance. If they don't have the resources, they need to hire or plan accordingly. I stand my what I said. They are at least six months late. It needed to into beta on release week. Yes they look like amateurs for many reasons.

In retrospect it looks like this long delay was due to console integration for mods. They should have given the PC community the mod tools from the start so that when it was ready to go on consoles, there would be plenty of mods ready.

Here's a prediction. There will be a half-assed implementation for the in-game mod system and the modding and player community will scream in agony. For example, sorting mod order will be absent or something else that's trivial but essential. Then when people complain about it here on the forums, you'll bitch them out about how difficult it is when in truth most of the hard work has been done on previous games since it's a very old engine.

The game came out almost six months ago. Sure there will be a modding community but they really missed their own boat! They can't hire more programmers so they don't look like amateurs?

Under one section of ECPA, judges can order a request for data to be kept secret if they believe knowledge of its existence will endanger life, allow criminals to flee, or otherwise jeopardize an investigation.

Which means they can request anyone's data at any time and make up a reason on the fly about a supposed 'investigation', or label you a criminal with intent to flee with no proof of either, etc etc...

Awesome. I remember seeing Guru Meditation errors when the Amiga our cable company was using would fritz. The Amiga was the most forward thinking and amazing computer ever developed....too bad Big Blue put them down.

Yes from '85 to about '91 Amiga was unmatched as a computer gaming platform! Big Blue? Intel? What makes you think that?

IMO it was a combination of failures by Commodore.

descender, No. Local businesses and individuals can easily do this. Also regional corporations are welcome in my mind as long as there is open competition and consumer choice. We should have a broad selection of options, including free options. Internet is becoming essential but it is also getting cheaper and cheaper to offer.

Nationalized Internet would be a disaster. It would be even worse than the fascist duopoly rip-off system we have now.

The Internet should be a community (not government) driven and the ability to lay down access wires/cables should be allowed much more freely and not monopolized by the government or big corporations.

If they were to do something as dumb as requiring every PC mod created with Geck to be console compatible the backlash would be amazing.

That's exactly what we're fearing because Bethesda, through their own actions and track record, has made it perfectly clear they don't care about focusing on the PC platform, save for a few cosmetic graphic effects.

Now that 95% of players have moved on from FO4 and will never play it again, we can mod it...

Easier, maybe. More limited, likely.

Aside from theories, why would it be more limited? There are already things modders can't do in FO4 because they don't have access to the tools, if anything the kit will expand mods much more than before. I doubt they're intentionally going to artificially limit its capability, nor be unable to as the engine is pretty much the same as Skyrim's functionality-wise.

Put it into context. He meant 'more limited' when compared to their previous creation kits, not compared to no tools at all.

It's reasonable to expect a crippled creation kit this time around so that the mods will be assured to work on consoles. We'll see soon enough what we get.

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Apr 7, 2016, 13:55:
It's called using allegory to flip the script ... The episode in question asks non-trans people to imagine what life would be like if they were the hated minority, to imagine how they would feel if having a binary gender was the anomaly rather than the norm, and by imagining such a scenario through watching a story, and by examining the thoughts and feelings that story creates in them, perhaps also reexamine how they think about trans and gay people, and how our society treats them.

Bingo. Roll reversal is another way to put it. Puts the outcasts in the role of the ruling intolerant oppressors and a degree of clarity as to the absurdity of it can be seen. Well, that's the objective anyway with regards to that episode of ST:TNG.

Allegory is a very valid and useful form of literature, even if it can be discomforting. Now if its poorly executed or in bad taste, then that is a separate issue.

They do, but only one episode. More or less one zone and a boss. They'll release the rest of the campaign after release. It's probably going to take a long time. I'm not sure your character progress will be saved between missions either.

Wow okay. $60 for a moba without the full coop campaign.. I'll wait for %50 off. thank you.
