Either way, the original statement is pretty idiotic but it is in no way comparable to what Trump did.

Amazon Web Services is going to ban Parler from using its servers because someone said "someone ought to show up at their data center with explosives." That, too, is merely a "desired outcome." To say that the GP post is "not comparable" is literally insane, as in, not rational thinking. The amount of moral deflection on this whole subject according to which side you favor is telling.

Also I hope the national guard shoot up those MAGA fuckers. That would actually go a long way to making america great....by swiftly removing some of the worst people in society...

This is an even more egregious incitement to violence than what got Trump banned from Twitter.

I was going to buy this with a PS5, but at the rate they're dropping, it'll be June before I can get my hands on one.

I'm sure BOTH people who've managed to score a PS5 will find the list useful.

Am I bitter? Unequivocally, yes. I guess I'll get one next June or something.

I often wind up feeling like I'm too casual for ESO after I've played. I watched (most of) the AMA, and it seems like it's going to be completely inaccessible for casual players. That's a producer-level direction, and I hope it works out for them, but it's clear people like me will simply not be invited.

The aiming is the thing between PC and console, innit? That's why HZD (and RDR2) has that time-dilation aiming mechanic in the first place. Did they adjust the timing of RDR2 on the PC port? I feel like, with a mouse, you'd need, like, half the time you get in Dead Eye mode to make it work, and keep it challenging.

I was a member of the PCMR for 20 years. I finally got tired of changing Windows' diapers, and moved to a PS4 a couple years ago, and I know that won't be a popular notion around here, but, frankly, it's been a huge relief. My main worry was getting used to the controller in games like Battlefield. It was surprisingly less hassle than I thought it would be, and the benefit of not having hackers in every match is even better than I imagined.

Anyway, games like this are designed for a controller. There's a time-dilation mechanic built into the game that feels natural, and makes the action work well with the turn-speed/accuracy limitations of the controller. Frankly, I'm surprised by this news. Moving it to the PC might screw up all the balance in this regard. RDR2 has the same sort of mechanic. If you've played the PC port, maybe there's a clue about how this will come off.

I couldn't even be bothered to finish the first one. For all the unmitigated hype over the thing, I found the story missions to be tedious and annoyingly Quicktime-like. Here, chase this purse thief all over town for no reason. Or, here make this shot or lasso on a dime. Oops! You suck! Try 2 or 3 or 6 times. I finally just gave up after one of the chase scenes where I didn't get the bad guys in time, and the train rolled into town. Oh, I'm sorry, Rockstar! You limited the speed of my horse arbitrarily, and put me on an invisible clock. Excellent work. I tweeted many, many of these frustrations at them.

There's a really great hunting game in there. I thoroughly enjoyed unlocking all of the outfits. Except that one time a cougar literally spawned 10 feet in front of my horse. DEAD...

Unlocking the gear, though? Yeah, right. I destroyed a controller over the second phase of the knife game. Screw that noise.

I suppose what's so unbelievably frustrating about the game to me is that you're just cruising along, minding your own business, having a good time, and then WHAM! DEAD! I guess the GTA games are like this? I wouldn't know; I never played any of them. Anyway, I'm not paying another $100 for a second version of this nonsense. I feel like Rockstar is thanking me for my money, but saying that I'm just not good enough to get the full $100 of game. Sorry. Thanks. Have a nice day.

Way cool. I chucked my binder of CD's a long time ago, as I had most of the collection re-bought on various digital services. But I kept XIII (along with NoLF 1 and 2), thinking that I might setup an XP box or a VM of some sort, to be able to play them again. Then I finally gave up on that idea, and pitched them too. I would love to play this through again.

I would expect most people here to know this, but GoG is run by CD Projekt. I just figured this out a couple months ago.

I've got a 2019 MBP with a Vega 20. The videos play as slideshows. The audio is fine; the video is running at about 2 frames a second. Performance of the app on the Mac has always sucked, so what could I expect?

I can't remember the last time I saw that "this application is not optimized" message, so maybe they've finally updated the app to 64 bit? I've never found a good way of watching development of this thing on Mac. Anyone know a good channel for that?

Same here. W2 just didn't work for me - I could not connect to the game. And I say this as a Fallout1/2/Tactics veteran. Something felt off to me with this game.

Same. I just found it very meh overall.

For me it was the brutal difficulty. With W1, back on the C64, wipeouts were almost to be expected. ("Oh! 'Deathclaws' are really powerful.") I guess Fallout 3, NV, and 4 have made me soft. I struggled so much with the lack of skill points and ammo, and finally just moved on to other games. When the Director's Cut was released, I started a fresh game, determined to optimize my play style with what I had learned before. My VERY FIRST random encounter leaving the base wiped me in 1 round. I hung it up after that. I was a $100 backer of that game, but I'm done with this. You win, InExile.

I installed the texture pack, and the only difference I can detect is that now the textures sometimes take even longer to "snap" into place.

Well, I can't wait. I've played the other 2 several times each. That being said, this footage seems like it could have just as easily come from a game called Rambo, First Blood II, the video game.

It's not just you. I've started the game several times, and can never get very far. And I was a $100 kickstarter backer! I really want to like it. I LOVE that it was made in Unity for cross-platform support.

For me, it's just so brutally-and-randomly difficult. The last time I tried, my very first random encounter into the wasteland wiped the party without even a hope. Some people like that kind of thing; I don't.

I was a $100 backer, mostly because I spent so much time with Wasteland and the BT series back in the day. I struggled with the difficulty of the original release, and consoled myself with the thought that the game was being true to its heritage. So I waited. When the Director's Cut came out, I started over, and got wiped -- hard -- on my very first random encounter in the desert. I haven't played since. It's just not balanced well. It has made me sad that I never finished a game which I paid that much money for, but I see I'm not alone in finding it un-fun. I'm intrigued about the Nexus mods. I may have to check out that scene.

I think this comment arises because there's really no way to play the game as a "bad guy." All of the dialog choices basically move you along the same path of being a hero.

So did the balance pass make it a worthwhile game? It's currently on sale on Steam, and I presume that's to raise awareness and move copies of the not-on-sale expansion pack. I'm on the fence about it. Can someone actually recommend it?
