Really enjoyed the first one in co-op, the second one felt really dumbed down / generic in comparison but still 'ok'.

Will wait and see.

If only their games were half as good as their movies.

Overwatch is pretty much the most polished MP FPS I've seen in a long while. You and others might not enjoy the gameplay and that's fine of course. But it's a solid, well-made, good game... especially in relation to the other MP FPS stuff out there, at their launches.

Nobody is doubting their polish, but that's about the only thing Blizzard ever brings to the table these days.

Copy what's already out there, dumb it down, polish, add blizzard logo, polish some more, profit.

That was epic!

Really enjoyed first two, so looking forward to this. They better bring back the awesome co-op campaign though.

-edit- More info here: http://www.pcgamesn.com/dawn-of-war-3/dawn-of-war-3-release-date

All sounds quite promising!

Tried the last one during a free play weekend and... lol, people actually pay money for this sh*t?

I thought all the hate was probably misplaced, and that it really couldn't be that bad... but wow. It feels and plays like an indie game from 5+ years ago.

Keep this tripe on consoles where it belongs.

Claptrap is my notification sound on my phone. All of them.

Weirdly, I could never finish 2, but the pre-sequel I finished in a week or two.

Did you play the BL2 DLC, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep? So, so good.

Yeah, Tiny Tina's DLC was awesome... but the other DLC's were craaap.

Hopefully they make some changes to 3, was starting to get a little burnt out in the end, and skipped the prequel for that reason.

Probably the most fun I've had in a team shooter since TF2 was first released.

Because the people who worked on vanilla WOW and TBC worked on this game. That's why it's super fun.

The very same guys responsible for dumbing down and ruining an entire genre of gaming? Joy!

Meh, there's plenty of stale mediocre shooters on the PC already (just ask blizzard).

Not a huge loss.

I don't see anything wrong with any Blizzard games...

Except that everything they make these days is some dumbed down rehashed POS for the console kiddies amongst us. If anything, they should move into mobile games (and stay there).

I have been having a blast playing The Culling. It is one of the most intense games I've played in a very long time. Not for the feint of heart though, you have to be really good to survive a 16 player FFA. If you're below average or average in skill, might not be a good buy for you, but still fun to watch on www.twitch.tv

It's on the top of my list - i'm really loving these types of games at the moment. But i just can't pull myself away from BR/KOTK mode in H1Z1! Still gotta try the free BR mode in ARK too!

I'm really enjoying h1z1 kotk - much more so than all the generic fps games these days. Fighting to be the last man standing is a lot more intense and rewarding than trying to top some scoreboard round after round.

Would like to try this as well as the culling, but can't seem to pull myself away from h1 at the moment. On my wishlist they go!

Story wise it goes like this (someone places small pox on money and then with the Black Friday sales (especially in someone as populated in New York, especially with cabs, trains, subways, buses) it spread like wildfire.

So one thing I wasn't clear on, is this ONLY happening in New York/Brooklyn? Rest of the world is a-ok? They didn't make that very clear, but that's the impression I got. Doesn't make sense, though, if that's the case. That'd mean the rest of the US gave up on Manhattan and just left it to this small Division group instead of an army. Actually, I recall seeing other dots on the intro map in other cities. Now I'm unsure.

Wish there were more explosions. Looks great though. Hoping to play a bit more tonight since the servers couldn't handle it last night.


It hints very briefly with a world map with many 'red dots' active like New York, and also mentions (again briefly) that it isn't just New York.

Don't think Borderlands. Borderlands is just Doom co-op, or even Serious Sam Co-op.

You HAVE to pay attention to the baddies, as the AI is impressive. They will charge, flank, retreat, use cover even on different altitudes, it really is impressive. I've had to throw a grenade at baddies and then suppress them with fire so they don't get out of the blast radius.

I'm trying not to come across like a fanboi, but after Ubisoft's formula that's used in Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, The Crew, Watch Dogs, they finally got it right and actually have a GOOD fresh game.
Granted it's online only, but I rather enjoy it as I can go do stuff solo or join up with people (friends/strangers/whoever) and go have fun and do things at my pace.
I'm pretty much now where I was in both Beta's (except have all 3 wings unlocked now), but the perk/ability/crafting system really do more to make this a RPG then say Borderlands.


I agree, don't think borderlands... borderlands is fun

But seriously, i can see why some people may like it but it just felt really repetitive and boring to me - even the PVP zone felt lifeless which forced grouping and predictable gameplay (plus most red's were done so by accident, and got zerged quick smart). The cover system was /yawn, the AI had too much health, the guns felt off (made worse by their sound fx that made them sound like pea shooters), progression and endgame APPEARED to be a never ending search for better loot so you could try and outscale AI HP's scaling.

/shrug

Graphics were quite nice though! And co-op worked a treat.

Not hating, just not my type of game i guess... as i also found the GOW series to be terribly boring as well.

Seems lots of people are enjoying it though which is good to hear.

This article reports that DX12 is forcing vsync on.

What we are seeing is the first implications of a new pipeline for graphics and compositing. WDDM 2.0 (Windows Display Driver Model) is a very big shift from what existed previously with WDDM 1.3. The days of exclusive fullscreen gaming may be on the way out as Microsoft shifts developers and hardware vendors into a standard path through the OS compositor rather than bypassing it. Implications for this change are only beginning to be understood, but letís see how it affects Ashes of the Singularity today.
[url=http://www.pcper.com/reviews/General-Tech/PC-Gaming-Shakeup-Ashes-Singularity-DX12-and-Microsoft-Store[/url]

If DX12 forces on vsync, I'm extra happy I bought that 144hz monitor.

Surely they wouldn't force it? V-sync is terrible even with a 144hz monitor... mainly due to the input lag.

Vsync off >>> vsync on
Vsync off with gsync on >>>>>> everything

Well I'm looking forward to it. The two PC betas were spectacular, very much unlike Ubisoft.

Spectacular in that sense that they saved me having to waste money on this boring ass spam to cover, grind for loot 'game'
