News Comments > Battlefield V Details
5. Re: Battlefield V Details Jun 4, 2018, 12:46 KilgoreTrout
 
Although, I'm a little hesitant over their concept of completely removing random deviation for bullets... surely that can't mean that guns will be laser accurate? (With of course recoil, bullet drop and travel time, but still). Are they planning on having recoil make the cross-hairs jump around, but the bullets will still be 100% accurate to that moving cross-hair?

I was also thinking about that. It's a nice idea to have the gun fire where it is pointed, but at the same time that means the first shot is always on perfectly on target if you have the time to aim. My guess is maybe your crosshair/barrel is not still but always moving slightly to simulate breathing/involuntary hand movements. Inaccurate guns may move more, or perhaps zoom in much less in ADS. We'll have to wait and see I guess, but I think it is cool that they experiment a bit and not just copy-paste from earlier iterations.

Exactly my thoughts. A dark, secret lovecraftian dick? Let's go find it!

Never played it, but it sure has some exceedingly positive reviews on Steam. Might be worth checking out.

I enjoyed Dying Light a lot, but when I had finished the main + DLC stories I felt it was just about enough and I could uninstall feeling satisfied. Bought on sale, so lots of value for money.

I bought BF1 + premium during the Christmas sale. I've played most BF games since the start of the series, but time constraints made me wait with BF1. It is very good, though. Polished and with smart mechanics. Still learning the maps and dying all the time, but having fun.

The article is also further confirmation of the idea that the moon is made of cheese.

I'll buy this on sale next year or so. For Bethesda games, it usually takes that long for the good overhaul mods to become mature.

I sure hope so. Mowing down a bunch of journalists, first responders and kids with my Apache was the best!

Seriously, though. The morality dilemma in military sims can be a problem. At least for me, but I've always had a hard time trying to play the bad guy.

I didn't get the feel of underwater at all from this video. Big ships spinning around after a hit is something that happens in the air, not in a liquid. Broke the immersion for me, but maybe I'm over-analyzing things.

I still think Aureal A3D was the best HRTF spatial sound experience there was. 17 years ago, no less. Maybe there's some good reason why something similar cannot be done in modern games. Does anyone know if AMD TrueAudio is as good (I never tried it)?

But you won't because then you'd have to admit you're wrong. And fact is you've never been right about anything, ever.
...
Jesus, how dumb are you not to be able to grasp that simple fact.

Wow. That escalated quickly. I sincerely didn't know you had these kind of issues, Cutter. I knew you were the forum cynic, but I really thought you could handle normal argumentation without resorting to insults. My bad.

The fact that your corner of the world (the U.S.) may have peaked and is currently faced with great challenges doesn't mean that the world at large is not improving. Have you seen the statistics on global poverty, infant mortality, access to health care, nutrition, violent conflict deaths and average life spans? They have been going firmly in the right direction for the last 50 years and show no signs of suddenly reversing.

Are there great challenges ahead? Sure. There have always been. But I believe we are better equipped than ever to deal with them, because of science and technology.

Cutter, you have so far made zero fact-based claims to support your position, just the usual "look, everything is bad and getting worse and you are blind not to see it" that disillusioned people have been saying forever. I think you need to look at the world and see that life is improving for the vast majority of people, even though it might not be for you and/or where you are.

Cutter, the world is not getting worse. In general it is getting a lot better (though maybe not for you personally). Less violence, less disease, less poverty, more democracy. Have a look at "The Better Angels of our Nature" by Steven Pinker, a very well-researched book about how (contrary to popular belief) we actually live in the least violent period since the dawn of humanity. Even the world wars were not that bad compared to many historical conflicts (in proportion to population).

I don't buy the general doom & gloom scenario, with the possible exception of global catastrophes like an asteroid hit. People have been saying that the world is going to hell in a handbasket since hell and handbaskets were invented, but it is just not the case.

Colonizing space is not primarily about protecting humanity from itself, but from cataclysmic events such as asteroid strikes. If a big one hits earth it does not matter how advanced our civilization is, or how well we have taken care of our planet. Still, cynicism and fatalism hasn't gotten anyone anywhere. The cult of Christianity caught on because most people (including Jesus himself) were convinced that the apocalypse was just around the corner. That was 2000 years and a lot of moral/human progress ago.

For me, the game works ok technically (no sound problems, only an occasional crash or disconnect). The friendly player tag bug is by far the most annoying, since a second of waiting with an enemy in your crosshair is more than enough to get you killed. This still hasn't been totally fixed.

But the game is excellent. So many things to do, weapons to unlock and different play styles to try.

Since you all seem to be well-informed gentlemen, I would like to know if anyone has an opinion regarding mods that diminish/stop the auto-levelling of enemies (there seem to be a couple of these mods). I haven't played Skyrim yet but will do so pretty soon. I've always had a problem with the fact that the world levels up with you in the Elder Scrolls games, so that you always meet enemies more or less your own level. I find it kills immersion. Any opinions or suggestions?

Which is why I try to get my sausage from butchers I know use non-gross meat.

If you cannot tell, it's not gross anymore. The grossness only exists in your brain. It's not embedded in the proteins. As you quoted, there's nothing wrong with the meat (it's just that we have grown unaccustomed to eating it).

It's a relatively new luxury and a signal of our wealth that we can afford to not eat some edible parts of the animals we slaughter. Imagine that 200 years ago. I think it's great if you can process those parts into tasty stuff, as long as you don't need to add too many potentially harmful chemicals along the way.

If something

1) Tastes good
2) Looks good
3) Is nutritious
4) Does not contain harmful substances

...it fills all the requirements for happy eating, and it doesn't (shouldn't) really matter if it's made out of rats, insects, jellyfish or slightly darker meat than usual.

Have they fixed the Complete mod for CoP yet? I was all excited to dive right into it, but I heard that particular variant (unlike the one for the other two games) is hideously broken and the developer abandoned it.

I played CoP with the complete mod shortly after it was released. It worked just fine. Maybe some little glitch somewhere, but difficult to know if it was the mod or the game.

CoP is the most polished of the three, but the concept started to get a little old. Some segments of ShoC were among the most intense gaming moments of my life, though.
