This one, however, appears to have surpassed the detail and features found in all previous career modes.

Glad to hear that, thanks. I might check back when this goes on a deep discount then (probably when F1 2017 comes out).

Not buying this simply for the lame abuse of the franchise. No Tommy, no Indians, no aliens, no gravity shifting = no Prey = no buy.

MC average score of 83 for a hyped to death game like this with bought reviews basically means it is a piece of shit.

This has been hyped to death? Really? Really. I think you mean NMS was hyped to death and was a shitty game, especially after it's glowing "preview" reviews.

Well, the shit-games-hyped-to-death phenomenon is not exactly a unique thing or exclusive to NMS. It happens all the time. This is one of these cases where anyone with minimum experience in gaming can see a huge red flag from a couple lightyears away.

Very popular franchise + hype = usually a default MC score of 90+. A score below 90 is a fair warning, a score below 85 means the game is probably hot garbage or mediocre at best. Caveat emptor. You have been warned.

Of course no one wants to hear it. It's Deus Ex so it MUST be good. Hype. Hype. Hype. Hyperventilation. Fap, fap, fap.

Yeah, and then it's gonna be one HUGE coitus interruptus when the game turns out to be buggy, performing poorly and comes with a forgettable main story (a common complaint in the reviews and most game journalists wouldn't know a decent story if it bit them in the ass so it must be REALLY crappy here for even them to notice).

Oh well. Same shit, different AAA hypefest... it's always the same every single time. I'm giving it two weeks until most people here are going to be like "yeah it wasn't actually that great".

Do those tards still not have a career mode in their F1 game? I mean the whole fucking point of the good old F1 sims like Micrprose's Grand Prix series was to slip into the role of your fav F1 driver and take him through an entire season of races with all ups and downs and shit.
I was shocked, stunned and appalled when I found out that Codemasters' F1 games don't even have this most essential game mode.
That's right on par with offering a Doom game without guns. It's the very definition of What. The. Actual. Fucking. Fuck.

The problem is most writers don't do evil very well. Instead they come off as caricatures like some cartoon supervillain. I only hope they can pull this off and don't fail near as badly as they did with PoE.

It's Obshittian. It's gonna have sophomoric evil in your face writing and metric fucktons of game-breaking bugs. Guaranteed.

There's no delay. AMD has been saying this for months: Limited availability (OEMs) towards the end of Q4/2016 and mass market availability throughout Q1/2017.

Wow. That looks like complete garbage compared to the apparently totally fake and touched up official trailers. Fuck you and your fraudulent bullshit, UbiSoft.

I love how they are having this checkbox where you need to verify you are old enough to acquire this game. A fucking Rayman game no less...

I have a GTX 1070 and have never had any anomalies either. As usual it is probably people who are too dumb to clean install drivers or who install 3D Vision bloatware even though they do not even own 3D glasses or people who are messy as fuck with their pr0n and warez that have a zillion different viruses and malware and blame it on nVidia. Well, all of that... and then AMD fantards who do not even own a nVidia card but are claiming they still have issues just to spread FUD.

Any words if these fix the DPC latency and stutter issues people are having?

Top of the morning to you, Sir!

They fixed that about a month ago and every (beta) driver release since then has had it incorporated, of course.

Might be worth remastering for the console peasants but for PC? Fuck no. Mass Effect 2 and 3 still look pretty damned good and there is a fairly decent texture pack to put lipstick on the ME1 pig.
For PC it's completely pointless except to bundle all the DLC (which already should have happened ages ago anyway).

Fuck this cash grab.

4. Re: Windows 10 auto-enabled GameDVR last week - here’s how to turn it off and save your frames. Aug 16, 2016, 13:39 CJ_Parker
 
Those fuckers...

The first thing I did after the AU was to re-uninstall (insult) the Shitbox app (injury). But then I still got retarded press "Windows key + G" messages when launching (Steam) games. It sure enough was exactly this DVR shit (or more precisely the fucking retarded "game bar") that was causing the annoying popup crap.

Barely a day goes by anymore where you don't have to gpedit.msc, regedit or PowerShell the shit out of Windows 10 to fix it to a tolerable and workable state. What a fucking circus. Thanks a lot for the shittiest OS ever, MS (and, yes, I've had ME and, yes, ME was lightyears better and ahead of this motherfucking garbage).

How many games come to steam and don't get support and/or patched?

I don't know, but I do know that Steam sells VTM:Bloodlines in a version that will not run on modern PCs without a lot of tweaking and never cared about including my patch which fixes this and more. When GOG released the game, they contacted me and their version will run as promised...

One 10+ year old game that the developer has not bothered to patch for the steam release (Troika games closed their doors on February 24, 2005). You fixed it, GOG has the fix, shame on Steam.

But with over 6000 games on Steam you can see my point.

There are actually quite a lot of games on Steam that plain do not work (without further fan/community patches) on modern systems/OSs. If the publisher does not provide a fix then nothing happens. Valve can not (and will not) fix 3rd party games.
In that regard it is actually nice to have the new review system because you can identify such games by the recent negative reviews.

But we get it. You are a Steam elitist fanboy. Good for you. Now keep dreaming of your flawless Steam-only fairytale rainbow pink pony lollipop sunshine world .

I can't possibly believe that a company would release a game on their 'platform' (meaning STEAM, GoG, etc) and it not work because of age. GoG seems to do pretty well with it, though they do put a lot of reliance on DOSBOX, which I've always thought was kinda of 'cheap' of them. I hope they're supporting the DOSBOX devs in some way, they have more than half their library to thank for it. If it's an individuals issue with their system, or a few people, then I can see it, but I can't see them putting a game out that flat out will not run 'out of the box'. It might need to be tweaked (or DOSBOX settings might need to be changed, and that should be said or dictated to the consumer in some way) but I seriously doubt it would be broke at release for everyone...

Just my two cents, not that anyone specifically asked for it...

EDIT: CJ, please point out at least two or three titles on STEAM that do not work 'out of the box' for anyone, otherwise I consider what you say to be hyperbole at best...

=-Rigs-=

The difference between CDP and Steam is that CDP has own dev support and they will actually touch 3rd party games by including DOSBOX or rewrite DLLs to make a game compatible. It's their USP.
Steam does absolutely nothing of the sort. Steam is just a portal for a publisher/dev to post their game but Steam doesn't give half a fuck whether it actually runs or not (unless it is an actual storefront issue like with their encryption, of course).

A quick example for a game that does not work at all would be Alice Madness Returns because of EA's broken DRM on the game. You have to actually download a crack to get it to work.
Another one: The original Gothic. It only works for most people in conjunction with community fixes like the system pack or following guides link this one here (why do we think such a guide exists in the first place... because the game works flawless because Gabe is personally taking care of every single Steam release?).
Or Star Wars KotOR (the first one) also seems to be virtually unplayable on modern systems without following guides as well as Robin Hood.

Heck, look at just about any older game and you will find community guides on not just how to prettify the game but how to actually make it work without crashing or serious glitches.
Or if you look through the (early access etc.) shovelware I'm sure you can find plenty of games that are borderline fraud because they aren't even working.

But I know... arguing with Steam fanboys is almost as bad as arguing with Star Citizen cultists. It's kind of tiring when people are completely in denial of the reality surrounding them.
