Typical UBIsoft, release another poorly optimized game.

I was hoping this would be a decent game, but will wait for reviews now. The graphics I have seen, just do not justify a 970 one bit nor an I7.

And yet Fallout 4, with its dated textures, can still bring my 970 and i7 rig to its knees with the newest beta patch. (HBAO)

that blizzard rant guy has a serious case of chainsaw teeth

The Blizzard rant was stupid and had some issues with facts. Just comes across like a 10 year old throwing a fit using more adult words.

Agreed.

We had a couple of inches here in Charlotte, NC but man is it icy. Had the last two days off. No chili, but Apricot Brandy keeps you warm too.

The original game already runs in HD. Why a remaster? Also, 25% discount only? Are they serious?

Runs in HD is quite different from having HD textures. The original Half-Life 2 runs in HD too, but the update looks quite a bit better.

I really want this to be good, but it is a wait and see. If I get into BETA I will be able to make a decision quickly - but this could go wrong on so many levels.....been burned to many times to pay full price opening day.

I pre-ordered through Amazon. Got my code for beta. If it sucks, I am going to cancel the pre-order.

Um, no, because why would I be searching posts for hidden words?

Psh, we all KNOW Valve can not count to 3. All of their games stop at 2.

Yeah, If I win the Powerball I would not take the annuity. I would use $150 million to immediately start production on a Takeshi Kovacs movie and start a small film industry in NC. If it bombs, I'm out $150 million oh well. If it works, I'm making even more money and I can invest in the sequel. (And maybe get RIchard Morgan to write another damn book.)

Hahaha yeah, what do you suppose we'll run out of first... Star Wars, Star Trek or Batman movies? :p

I think they're just going to run them all into the ground until they stop making money.

Oh well, next year is...what, Star Wars:Rogue 1?

Dec 16 of this year. And then in 5 months (May '17, I believe), Episode 8.


Damn, didn't realize they were pushing them out so fast! When I was a kid, Lucas abandonded SW after Jedi and I jumped right on Timothy Zahn's books when they released. Then Ibought the next book after and realized how shitty the writing was and that became the standard so Igave up. And then Lucas put out Ep I and I pretty much lost any interest in SW at that point.

Now though, even IF the new books weren't shit (which from reviews and friends Iunderstand that they still are)there is just SO MUCH SW stuff coming out you'd have to dedicate a significant portion of your life just to follow it all. I'm good with the movies and Rebels, thanks.

He either thinks Demos count as games, or he is like MS who announce a buttload of games at launch and then 2+years later still have not released half of them.


And yes you goddamn picky syntax nazis, I know most of them are 3rd party and RIft isn't actually releasing them, just like MS.

I liked both movies. Jedi stole most of its major plot beats from A New Hope in the same way as The Force Awakens.

Anyway, everything is derivative. There isn't anything original left to write, it's all in how you put it together.

That said, I was very happy with how TFAturned out, but I am anxious about someone else doing the next 2. Oh well, next year is...what, Star Wars:Rogue 1?

It's a great game, but the XBone was NOT the console to make it exclusive to. The frame rates, the agony! At least the PS4 would have had smoother cut scenes and heavy action scenes.

It's been running pretty good for me, haven't had any frame rate issues whatsoever.

Are you fucking kidding?.. Oh, you must have that new Elite X1 with the new ssd hybrid drive that makes everything 30% faster! My bad.. Confused Beatnik

The jokes on him, because I had actually cloned my Bone drive onto a hybrid drive and STILL had fps drops. Some people maybe don't notice it, but it's definitely there.

Yeah I don't notice it, or its small enough that I don't care. Jokes definitely on me, happily gaming over here. But sorry, forgot that here at blues everything sucks and everything stupid, especially if Microsoft is involved.

Try not to make blanket statements. I actually run WIndows 10 and I don't have any built in greviance with MS. That said, their last 2 X Boxes have been underpowered compared to the competition, so yeah, I will call them out on that. It's not like it's undocumented or anything. There's a reason games run at higher resolutions on the PS4 vs the XBone.


Also, I don't know what that other guy was on about, but she does not have short hair in this game.

if you expect VR to happen at anything below the high-end enthusiast level, you are kidding yourself

600$ is well above high end, $400 would still be considered that.

$600 is not above high end at all, people spend a lot on premium parts in the $450-800 range. Just look at the PC gaming hardware space for many examples.

My curiousity has been satisfied. Maybe someone will come along and give me reason to want to drop 600 bones on one, but passing for now.

And yeah, get rid of the Bone controller and drop $50 from the price. Geez.

Also, my monitor cost $1000, so again, it's not the price, but how much use I will get out of it for the price.

I have a Rift DK1 and in many ways it is the most incredible thing, but it's not actually suitable for gaming, mainly because of the low resolution. Of course 640x800 per eye wasn't going to be enough but it was much worse than I had expected so I'm not sure 10801200 will cut it.

I'm somewhat prone to travel sickness and I get some motion sickness in games when the FOV is played with for speed effects. The Rift DK1 is almost perfect. I felt a bit dizzy after wearing it at first but I soon got used to it. The discomfort of wearing the headset is the only physical problem.

There's a lack of content, that's the biggest reason to avoid buying a Rift now. I'm not spending ~350 in the hope that content will arrive later. I'll wait, but I intend to get 1.0 if reports are good.

I'm with you there. When someone comes out with a game I care about for it, then sure, maybe. Or native support for existing games I play. But I'm not paying $500 to beta test and run tech demos.
