Nice! The record for Ubi's sales records and 'naive purchasing decisions' were broken on the same day.

How ironic.

Open beta for a full weekend across all platforms showing off a sizable portion of the finished product 2 weeks before launch. Or you know, those "naive" buyers.


Yet people are giving it average to negative reviews everywhere that a collective score can be gathered.

I really don't have the time to explain how 0.001% of players review-bombing on metacritic doesn't amount to jack shit.

But here something you can take with you, this forum. The vast majority of players in this thread who have actually played the game tend to enjoy it. In fact, that rings true for pretty much every Div thread on this board since it was playable.

u mad?

It's currently sitting on 64% on Steam with over 3000 votes of the ~7000 being negative.

I suppose these 3000 people are representative of nothing? Or 0.0001%? Or they all bought the game for ~$60 just so they could shit on it? Let me guess; "Steam reviews don't matter", or "those people just have launch issues!"

You know what else had the same score and launch issues? FC Primal. Another Ubishit title. How's that doing with the user base? Still in the 60s after 10 days?

I can taste the regret in every one of those reviews. Especially when they state what everyone knew even before the beta was released. It's delicious.

If you actually READ those reviews, many of them ARE bullshit. Complaining about things that aren't reality.

This is a perfect game for player killers, back stabbers and trolls. Have you seen those "Jumping jacks" videos??

Yes, Ive seen the childish idiots doing this. UBI will get around to banning or fixing this issue.

This all leads back to a few games i've played in the past. One was WOW Blizz fixed it by making players in the world and NPCs non blockable. Meaning you can walk through them. This also leads me to another game that got slammed for doing this exact same thing. Aliens, Colonial Marines.

I recall many people bashing the shit out of that game for this same exact thing you could do. This is why devs implement walking through NPCs and players. To avoid this dumbass shit from occurring and people abusing it.

You can run through people in these instances (in The Division). Just keep running against the player that is blocking your path and you will phase through them after around 3-5 seconds.

Now, issues with the "quest" objectives, that's something else entirely.

!! CAUTION !!

Many people (including me) are getting BSOD's during install. Personally for me it installed OK but all games run at 2 FPS. Attempt to remove and roll back hosed my system. Will have to reload tomorrow instead of playing The Division.

http://bit.ly/1OY4iO1

Been narrowed down to Windows 10 users with multiple monitors. Reports are that if you uninstall current driver and run DDU, then install new driver you'll be all set.


EDIT: I can confirm this worked for me. Just updated without issue.

As for them not jumping into VR, they have time to react if they need, but they best be prepared with some plan to add it timely if it does take off and mixing this in with above, in time proper performance to drive VR would be there.

Don't forget they're still playing around with AR, which has more interesting uses IMO.

I'm Ok with that...most sites seem to rank W2 and FO4 in the top two slots. Witcher 3's release bugs, horrific inventory, and janky combat really put a damper on it for me. The storyline and voiceover work was top notch...but playing the game itself felt more like a pain in the ass.


Yep. Fallout 4 is the real game of the year, despite the flaws.
Honestly, Witcher 3 isn't even in the top 5 for me... I did like it, it's an incredible achievement, but it's just not that fun...

I agree.

I only have about 6-7 hours into W3, so I'm not an expert in it, but I find it to be just "OK". I found FO4 to have more of a pull to play than W3 for me, FO4 has an "OK" story but the atmosphere and action just seems more "fun" to me, so looked forward to playing FO4 more than I do W3.

W3 is a good game, but comparatively, I think FO4 is/was more fun... for me.

Same, I stopped playing Witcher 3 a week or two after starting it. Got to the first main city and lost interest.

News Comments > Fallout 4 DLC Plans; Season Pass Price Jump

I bought the season pass when I bought Fallout 4. However I'm a complete Fallout fanboy (I like them all, so get over it) so I knew I'd be getting my money's worth out of it.

And who keeps saying it's $70? It'll be $50 after the price hike. If they truly intend on offering more content I don't see how it's a big deal that they announce a price increase WELL in advance.

Further proof why Bitcoin is not a currency alternative
What, that people who choose easy to crack passwords found in online password dictionaries (instead of the recommended random 64 bit keys) are getting cracked?


Yeah, this is more like a digital version of a pick pocket. Except it doesn't take as much skill on the part of the pick pocket because you're basically just holding your wallet out for the pick pocket to grab.

Let's just state one thing right off the bat here people:

Just because a game is punishing on hardware does not mean it's using the hardware to it's full potential.

Yeah I took it. As I do with most of the "On the House" Origin games that pop up from time to time.

I don't mind Origin either really. More digital platforms is not a problem IMO. However I would like for Steam Overlay to work in all the games I choose to play. But alas, it doesn't so no crying over spilled milk.

FOV = 90
Depth of Field = OFF
Motion blur = OFF
Anything not HBAO+ in terms of SSAO = off
FXAA = Definitely 100% off, rather play with pixels than vaseline

That's all, oh.. and subtitles = on mainly because I can read .. very fast. And most games have shit voice acting or dialogs that you wanna skip....

I too hate DOF and Motion Blur. They're always off if I have an option.

Invert Y? Well, for me, unless I'm trying to fly UP is always UP, and DOWN is always DOWN.

AA options are typically on their lowest setting for me (2x AA typically). I am not bothered by aliasing that much.

So, when Microsoft announces that they won't support Windows 10 on certain hardware, people get their panties in a bunch.

How is this different than a game saying that it won't support some hardware? Answer: It's really not.

Denuvo got cracked a year ago...

You might want to actually read the article. Not every Denuvo game is cracked. The underlying concept has not been defeated, though one or two titles were eventually cracked.

Just Cause 3 remains uncracked after more than a month.

And the latest FIFA game remains uncracked, and that released in September of last year. Uses Denuvo.

GK 104 (GTX 680), was Nvidia's first 28nm chip and it started the trend of the mid-range chip getting a flagship designation. Titan was much later. We haven't seen the big chips ship first since Fermi. I would guess that 28nm had better yields out of the gate than 16nm will have.

Either way, I hope you're right, cuz I want the big one.

Titan was actually GK110, which is the designation given to the cleaned up design of the initial chips (initial release of full Kepler would have been GK100 had it released on time).

I am just hoping we don't have to wait until GP110 to get Pascal, I would like to see full product stack from GP100, to GP104, GP107 and on down the line. Though it is looking like it may continue the trend of cut down card first, then full blown later in the year. nVidia can afford to do that as they release product on a slightly different schedule than AMD. No doubt GP104 should outperform Fury X, so I have a bad feeling it will drop first as high end until AMD releases a response, which will then prompt (probably) GP110 to drop.

Can't wait for Pascal. I have SLI'd GTX 780s (previously had SLI GTX 470).

I want to get rid of my SLI setup and get monster Pascal. Hopefully GP100/GP110 releases out of the gate, and not GP104/GP114 as the top sku. If that's the case I'm likely waiting until near the end of the year for full GP100/GP110.

And buried in the release notes is this little nugget:

Added or updated the following SLI profiles:
•Fallout 4 - SLI profile added

I wonder if this will require a game patch.

But no matter...SLI works just fine currently with the right bits set in nVidiaInspector.

Yeah, did some reading up. Apparently doesn't work well for some (the official SLI profile for Fallout 4).

And the nvinspector bits I have tried have caused BSODs. Gonna try these drivers and roll back if they don't work out.

I'd say there's about a 75% chance if I use a terminal, I'll get stuck to it. I understand that's common enough to cast some serious doubt over their QA effort.

Disabling clipping between Dogmeat and the player would save some annoying and unnecessary deaths as well.

This is a framerate bug, limit your frames to 60 to fix it.

I've gotten stuck to a console, and I have not edited the framerate cap for the game. Only FOV.
