Sad thing is im hearing the torrent version has no 30fps frame lock...and yes i did buy the game..

As far as I can tell, there is no torrent version online.

There is, unfortunately for the people behind the game. But I haven't read anything about it coming without a frame lock yet.

It's been cracked, and the 30fps lock is likely still in place, but if they do indeed patch it this weekend, i can now see the lost sales for them piling up in a big way. And it's no one's fault but their own.

I specifically had my finger on the purchase button, until i read 2k conveniently held back review copies/embargo.

I'm sure we'll soon hear 2K scream and shout "Piracy!" on the PC, and why it's the reason they choose not to fund the platform.

PC heathens! It's clearly our fault..

I'd be more than happy to support 2K and Hangar 13 studios, but they've made it clear how they feel about me as a customer, therefore leaving me no choice but to keep my wallet shut today. Oh yes, and screw your post release patch.

Cheers, A**holes!

Taking bets on what an utterly broken mess this will be upon release, after the 25gb day one patch..

Anyone? I'll be glad to take your money now.

Let me see..
1st response out of the gate from Rod will be "We're working feverishly to fix these issues and make Gears of War 4 the best it can be on the Windows platform."

2nd. We didn't realize PC gamers used Vsync or resolutions above 720p, we're on it!

3rd. We're deploying a fix as we speak to unlock the 30 fps cap!

4th. We're adding mouse and kb support asap! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Jfc, i could go on, but you guys get the picture.

128k eh? Alrighty..

And as i clearly stated, there is shimmering in some games.

Most the old farts i run with use 1440 & 4k panels, and no one I know of opts for AA due to better picture quality and the fact even gtx 1080's are clawing for every frame at these resolutions, which means anti-aliasing is usually the first to go because in my opinion it's garbage, and always has been.

The graphics update isn't terribly noticeable. Turning on max view distance DESTROYS your framerate, and this is on a 1080. Now, I AM running SSAA 4x, so I'm rendering every frame at well over 4K. *Might* have something to do with it. But it looks WAY better in the close-field areas that way, and I'm not terribly worried about seeing the outline of mountains two zones over.

I doubt the new drivers help much at all, but I'll do some testing.

Question? Why run ssaax4 at 4k resolution? Other than typical anti-aliasing smearing effect and a dip in image quality, why run it at all at 4k? It's a significant performance killer.

I'm not trying to be snarky. Is there something i'm missing here?
One of the benefits of running 4k for me(for the most part)is the ability to finally get rid of anti-aliasing altogether for a nice crisp image without blurred colors etc.

So you're saying running on a 4K monitor, AA is overkill? Just curious, as I do 'not' have a 4K monitor.


For most games, correct. You get some shimmering here and there depending on the engine, but it's a wonderful thing to finally do away with AA. As you well know, It also free's up much needed gpu resources to maintain 60fps in games like Witcher 3 etc.

Yeah, for me colors pop again, and there's no shit smear all over my screen any more. It's nice.

We live in fascinating times. Everyone's remaster/booting literally every old IP that may turn a profit. Some good, some not so good.

It seems Gordon Gekko was right, greed is good!

After watching some videos the game has me more interested than any other minecraft type game i've seen to date.

The art direction is very attractive to me, and it does seem to have some hooks. Hopefully there's some story and surprises to be had.

As one who usually passes up games like these, are there others out there that are better and more fleshed out than No Man's Sky? Elite Dangerous aside, Any suggestions?

Anyone who owns classic Evolve will be given “Founder” status in the new free version, and all the content you already own comes with you to the new version. As long as we work on Evolve, we will show our appreciation for our committed fans and early adopters with gifts, rewards, and special access. Why? Because you believed like we did, and we will never forget that.

What in the blue fuck?

I'm curious to know if you sweethearts will be giving me the opportunity to have anal sex with your entire marketing team? Because right now mine feels like it's been ridden up and down the block a few times, then sent off with not so much as a thank you or even a cup of coffee..
TR/2K's endless fuckery concerning the complete and total failure of this game of theirs is truly impressive.

Are these bottom feeders even human?

Can I just get a new MMO that isn't from fucking Asia?

I haven't had a decent addiction in years.. And since we're clearly not getting anything new like Titan was, how about just a safe and sound WoW 2?

Cmon, Bliz!

I fear that by now Valve has become a disorganized culture of passive-aggressive commies, kept alive by Steam money. There's no HL3, there's no L4D3.

Exactly.

Like, what is it they even do over there at Candyland?
Valve has become a fucking joke.

Countless fans have asked for this since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One arrived – and we listened!

Unlike another developer we could mention *COUGH* ROCKSTAR *COUGH* who, despite eleventy billion people asking for it, still gives everyone the big middle finger with regards to Red Dead Redemption.

If we don't get a re-release on pc/consoles soon, the game will have aged to the point that interest will wane. I could be wrong here, but fans can only hold out so long before moving on with their lives. Maybe just me.

Rockstar truly do live up to their name. A studio who clearly marches to the beat of their own drum. A gigantic drum made from assholes and scrotum sacks.

I'd like to know more about 2k's remaster job before i decide. But i'm down to go back to Rapture a 10th time. Be interesting to see if they're going for framerate or visuals on consoles. 1080p@30fps is my guess.

And..am i the only one who loved Bioshock 2? Loved it. It didn't have the weight Ken brought to the first, but the improved combat was welcomed, and the story(including Minerva's Den)was just fine for me.
