Wait for the PC or PS4 version. XBone had awful frame issues during cut scenes and certain action sequences. Nothing says XBone like 15 fps!

You ever hear of the Chernobyl disaster? This level of incompetence is comparable.

Aaaand right about that point everyone in the room stopped listening to your crazy ramblings.

Hehe, yup. OMG, a video game delivery system accidentally exposed some peoples' private information! This is the same level of incompetence that caused a nuclear reactor to melt down and kill 31 people and poison thousands of others! A video game delivery system hiccup is just as bad as the SECOND WORST NUCLEAR DISASTER IN HISTORY!

Get a grip.

So MS paid for a 2 month exclusivity? I'm sure that sold a ton of extra consoles...

Technically MS paid for 1 year exclusivity. Their Xbox One had it first, and now PC (MS Windows) gets it. Sony has to wait until holiday 2016.

It was the only game I was saving my Bone for. I played it and beat it and sold it and the console. I didn't 100% it like the last one because there are some damn annoying bugs that will hopefully be worked out when the PS4 version comes out.

For about a decade and a half I worked with all the major telcos on a regular basis. They were all pretty bad. And it wasn't just the people answering the phones. I'd say about half of the "techs" were clueless. Lost count of the times I had to explain their network to them. Saving direct numbers to competent techs is the only way I managed to save my sanity.

Lol, don't get me started. I worked for Time Warner for a bit as a customer service rep. 90% of the reps have no clue how to do most of their job. I had the bonus of being an IT guy so Roadrunner "techs" were at my desk all the time asking me how to fix their problems too.

Not that our customers were any better, mind you.

I see this as a minor blip. Every company is full of incompetent morons all trying to do their best to fuck everything up for the small percentage of competent people who work there and hold everything together. You can think otherwise if it makes you feel better.

Just watching it again though. God, can you imagine in a few years UNcharted, AC, Tomb Raider in VR? Doing the Eagle dives from AC would make your heart jump up into your throat, lol.

You seem to be willfully forgetting that the raison d'etre of Tomb Raider is 3rd person.

Wow. Beatnik

Looks like Uncharted in VR.

I agree with the MindStalker, though. If you've never climbed, using just your hands may seem plausible. Unlike Uncharted (even though I love it) you will need to rest your weight on your feet as well or your arms will give out in short order. And ropes, harness, chalk, belay, carabiners, crams...yeah, you kinda need that stuff to do it safely.

I guess that's Climb 6?

Am I the only one/1 who didn't like BF2142? I always liked BF's 1942, 2, V, etc.

No, I also did not like it.
But I'm a weirdo who thinks Vietnam was the best one.
Then 1942, and then BF2.

2142 was OK, but not my favorite by far. Vietnam was great until they "fixed it" one day and killed the game.

Considering I have paid for cable one time in my life to watch Farscape, I would say it's not faster than I think. (One season of Farscape to try to keep it on the air cost me more than the bluray set of the whole show.)

Battlefield 3 and 4 were fantastic. If this lives up to them, even if it's pretty much the same, I'll buy it. If it's like Hardline, forget it. If it's like Star Wars Battlefront, I'll buy it so that I can set it on fire and upload a video of me setting it on fire on to YouTube.

Agreed. I would love if they could just import ALL of the current maps and give us a few new ones, though. Maybe some bad company 2 maps as well.

I keep meaning to play more of this now that it is free of monthly subs, but man, SO MANY GAMES. I haven't even really done much with the new GW2 expansion. I finished the new TR and then Beyond Two SOuls gets a HD release and JC3 comes out (which I held off on but Bats keeps posting pics of that make me yearn to play it) and still working on Fallout 4 and Starcraft and....AGH!~

The government isn't profiting off of immunizations, so how could that possibly be their motivation?

That's actually the reason the government handles it. There's so little profit in vaccines that no private company would make them if the government didn't. But they serve such a vital function. I can't believe people argue against the technology that eradicated small pox, a disease estimated to have killed 500 million people last century, and hundreds of millions more in the centuries before that.

If you are talking about the US, you are misinformed. The government does not make them, and they generate billions of dollars in income every year for big-pharma companies.

it's also weird how consistently the leaders pick better than everyone else. i would think beyond a certain point (that a lot of us football fans are past) that it's all just statistical noise, but the names on the espn leaderboard are almost always the same dudes all season long.

I think there's some level of skill to it, paying attention to injuries knowing who plays well against what team, but I think its mostly luck. Get 2 or 3 good weeks, and then do average or just above average and you'll stay ahead of everyone else.

I can't stand it when people "fall in love" with actors. YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS PERSON IN REALITY. Actor. Acting. Seek mental help.


And Neil. I'm glad you can go out on a high note. THanks for setting the bar so high I can't even see it anymore.

If I can try it for free I might bite, but not willing to shell out money to try it and find out I don't like it. I'm not sure the cartoony, fast paced arena shooter is my thing. I like BF4 type stuff.

Remember when WoW took off and then everyone and their brother wanted to make an MMO game and pretty soon the market was so flooded that they could barely make a profit?

I predict the same market saturation here.

We can already see it first hand. League of Lesbians has all the players. Even its closest competitor Dota 2 has a tiny fraction of the player base.

The problem with making a MOBA, or an MMO, is people only want to play the game that everyone else is already playing.

Do you have numbers to back that up? DOTA 2 seems pretty popular, as does HotS.
