Welcome to reality

What reality? You mean the dumbest of the dumbest retards who dial down their graphics setting in a game like RotTR just so their game will run at 100fps and their CPU gets something to do?

Seriously, that article is so far away from reality it is not even in the same universe as reality. The reality is that people try to max out graphics settings and run into GPU limits, not CPU. Who the fuck lowers settings just so they can give their CPU more work? That must be the retard level of reality that some of y'all dwell in.

I'm having an issue with the textures not loading properly. They look ugly as fuck sometimes.

There's also something off with the sound. It's strangely quite somehow.

The graphics are weird too. There's no real sense of bullet impact and if you shoot someone who's on the ground: zero effect.

Enemies you knock out leave a huge bloodstain on the floor.

I'm not pleased with the performance on my GTX980 system either, with everything set on Very High. I'm used to 90fps, though, so I brought that on myself maybe.

Anyway, stopped playing after 30 minutes. Game's shite. Like 4 Honor.


The root cause of all of these issues can be summed up in a single word: Ubishit.

For gaming the only thing that matters is single *thread* and if you render in Cinema4D or 3dsmax, the ryzen 1800x is something to consider.

^ this

Ryzen is completely irrelevant for gaming. It's definitely a decent CPU though if you really need the multicore power (content creation, encoding, compiling, rendering and all that shit).

Pillars 2 looks freaking gorgeous.

Yeah, they always look "gorgeous" during the pitch, switch & bait phase. The actual delivery though... not so much when it's been feature-cut to death.
I feel sorry for anyone who is seriously expecting Obshittian to really deliver on the whole seafaring thing. Watch this get cancelled with no word about it until a week from release and then a half-assed 'sorry blahblahblah it ain't our fault, it's just that your expectations suck blabluhblehblahbluh'.

Seriously though, it's quite the reach to call tripling a fundraising goal an epic fail. Plus there's still two days left, we've seen time and again that huge amounts of pledges happen in the final hours. The lower number of backers is practically irrelevant, too, considering the number of sales PoE did after release is in excess of 10x the number of pledges that made it happen. They officially announced 700k total sales a year ago and Steam Spy estimates about 900k by now, which doesn't include DRM-free copies from GOG, etc.

It may not include DRM-free copies but what it does include is free additional copies people got from their pledge level. It's only game owners, not sales.

And you can twist and turn it any way you like but not surpassing the first campaign is a massive failure. The whole point of KS is to build a solid customer base and deliver a game that exceeds expectations so that more people are willing to pledge for round two. They epic failed on that one.

Only about 30% of backers returned in spite of the fact that you can now invest on Fig. The low number of backers and the relatively high amount of money collected actually shows that the game has attracted quite a few investors and even considerably less backers than those 30%.

So, yeah, this may be an ideal point in time for Obshittian to consider no longer delivering mediocre garbage.

There goes your theory that people are giving them the finger. They don't even NEED this money and people are still giving them millions just to make the game better than it otherwise would be.

Nah. Many people who pledged for the first one are obviously giving them the finger. The KS mail for the second one went out to all backers of the first one. There is no excuse why KS backers should not have come to Fig if they were really happy with PoE and wanted to support another "great" product (lol).
Of course, there is still a number of hardcore fanbois who would pledge even if the pitch was a turd in a box from Feggit Quirkyhead but many people seem to finally become aware of the fact that Obshittian is a company which is simply not capable of producing decent games.

It is a complete mystery to me how these guys have managed to stay in business for so long just based on the involvement of a few of their team members with Black Isle. Ridiculous. They put out mediocrity after mediocrity and the fanbois keep begging for more in the vain hope that the next one might really be like BG again or at least have a half-decent narrative. Of course, neither ever happens. It's all garbage.

Well, unless there is a last minute miracle this is a well-deserved epic fail for Obshittian. This is what happens (and totally should happen so well-deserved indeed) when you massively underdeliver the first time around.
It's good to see that many people are giving them the finger of love for their failures of the past.
Only 25K backers vs. 74K backers is a nice exclamation mark and just over $3 million in spite of investors vs. $4 million sans investors makes it a very nice, fat, bold exclamation mark, too.
Looks like many people shared the sentiment that it is not worth investing in buggy, delayed, feature-cut, subpar Obshittian products of phail that need two years in the oven before the v1.0 finally releases as a GOTY.

Xactly. Those times have long sailed where shit gets cheaper when new shit comes out. Nowadays old shit simply goes EOL outta stock and is replaced by some new (often times more expensive) shit.
But the veracity of the rumor sounds questionable to begin with. nVidia won't do shit until Vega comes out. Until Vega they got their comfy lead with nice margins on the parts they are selling. There is zero need to introduce a 2070 for anything.

I don't think they'll have much to counter Vega at first. There's been some rumors about an intermediate 12nm FinFET process at TSMC but who knows when that will be ready for mass production.
Maybe we'll see a reversal for the next six to twelve months where AMD will take the lead at the high end with no counter from nVidia.

Until then the only big question is how much juice is left in the current Pascals. We know that they put a hard lock on voltage so higher clocked Pascals with unlocked voltage and better cooling might be an option for a possible 2000 or 1100 series.

I can't but help wondering why. What is in it for them to screw it up so badly. Is it incompetence, is it an agenda, or what.

The reason is that the big publishers are making only between 10% and 20% max of revenue on the PC. MS doesn't give a shit. The more they sabotage PC gaming, the more Shitboxes they sell and the more console fees they can collect. Destroying PC gaming for them = win-win.

Are these "sales bin" comments never gonna stop? I swear, I'm getting the impression not a single game is worth more than 10 bucks for these people.

Well, they are to me, but not when they are DLC infested. Thats when I wait until they are complete, which is also mostly when they drop in price.

I hereby conclude that the beaver's strongest muscle is his brain.

Hahaha this is gonna be the flop of the year with a billion light years lead. I feel sorry for all the fools who preorder this unadulterated garbitch .

Who knows how the game will turn out? Considering its Bioware it will probably be sort of fun, but ultimately meh. It will however be no flop. They are going to make a billion dollars with this game.

That's true but we all know how it goes. First it will collect a shitload of OMG 9/10 and 10/10 due to bribes and lotsa slobbering from the preordering mouth breathers who need to justify their purchase.
Then three months later we'll get the first admissions why it wasn't actually that great and towards the end of the year it will start showing up in the raspberry awards of the year.

That is guaranteed with the shitty quality of this casual crap. It doesn't even have great gfx. It has the same unreal shitty artificial glossy look as all Frostshite games.
If anyone is seriously claiming this garbage looks good then they are either paid by EA or they are millennials whose standards have hit rock bottom.

Except for Valve and Blizzard? You seem to be insinuating that they are somehow at fault for not selling their games through third-party storefronts?

Nope. Not at all. I'm "insinuating" that people who think Valve and Blizz are the saints of gaming are shitclowns because they refuse to accept reality.
I could not care less that Valve and Blizz are selling their causal mass market garbage only on their own storefronts except when it is used as a retarded argument against Origin by even more retarded Steam elitists.

It's Bioshock in space. It'll start with a space lighthouse as you get out of your crashed spaceship, get inside a spacestation, realize you're part of some crazy experiment and go after the people who started it.

TADA!

Yep. This blatant unoriginality coupled with the raping of the franchise, the uninspired gameplay and the shitty consolitis (like that retarded wheel interface) is the reason why this will be a $4.99 (for the GOTY) purchase for me at best.

And the fact that there's still this contingent of diehard fanbois who will boycott any other storefront if it's not Steam, means that they're like the mafia. "nobody moves any product through this town if it doesn't go through me".

The fact that they peddle shovelware that they don't even test for 30 seconds, and have no phone/chat support is only supplemental evidence to their greed. The main event is that they've come up with a way where they don't have to fund game development anymore, but still profit immensely from other people's work

It's beyond disheartening to see that people knowingly buy stuff on Steam instead of the developer's own storefront. Basically taking a HUGE cut of money from the people who built the games you love and handing it over to don GabeN, because... something something fuck everything but Steam. That was the exact fight that Valve had with Vivendi all those years ago, "Fuck you, I'm not paying you a huge chunk of our profits for doing nothing, we want to sell our own product ourselves". No lessons learned, no sense of irony.

It is not very often that I wholeheartedly agree with Slick but here we go. The Steam elitists are entitled whiny little shitclowns.
Every publisher should have a right to publish their IP through which ever channel they choose. EA is relatively open in this regard. EA sells games on Origin, GOG and Steam. And Valve? Or Blizzard? That's right. They sell their games exclusively on their own respective storefronts.

I'm not a fan at all of most EA games (abysmal garbage for the most part) and even less of a fan of their super-shitty business practices like season passes and all that crap but I can not really say a bad thing about Origin. It is a pleasant client app to buy and launch games from and I fully understand and condone EA's desire to self-publish instead of making the GabeN empire fatter and fatter.

Well, now... they never promised mod support. In fact the KS FAQ reads...

Will you be able to script your own missions for your friends to play through?

It's something I'd like to see, but supporting dev tools externally is not something we'd want to do on day one. Down the line, maybe...

Yes, it is kind of lame that they dropped offline play at the last minute and that they did not communicate it sooner but it is just about the only KS promise they broke. "Dev tools" a.k.a mod support was communicated as a "maybe" from day one as we can see and it may still be coming somewhere down the line.

Compare this to the fucking liars from Larian, Obsidian, CIG or inXile, all of whom underdelivered massively with their fraudulent pitches and Frontier appears like a shining white knight with only a very minor shit stain comparatively.

Seriously, E:D has been a decent deal for early backers. Backers like me received the Horizons season pass for free and we have gotten a lot of awesome content for free that was not part of the original deal and that other devs would have charged for double and triple...

Besides, I have a feeling that Frontier has a long term plan which incorporates offline. There will come a point when expansions won't sell anymore and when they will feel like shutting down the servers and that's when they will release an offline mode, I'm sure.
It's the ace up their sleeve. They must know due to the popularity of their Tycoon games that an offline E:D with mod tools would be a very viable way to expand the game's lifetime beyond its online life.

Until then I can not blame them for not handing out a freebie to pirates like Cutter who is just pissed he ain't able to download this for nada.
