I got it last week in the Humble Bundle and it's rather addictive, great for short bursts as it takes you from into matches in seconds.

News Comments > Evening Crowdfunding Roundup

Great example of why I'm so skeptical of crowd funded games. Already been burned by Overgrowth, which is still in early alpha 5 years after buying it, and Star Citizen - we'll have to see on that one. Just glad I didn't buy an expensive ship.

As for ReRoll they should really reimburse people as much as they can, rather than keeping the money and handing out a crap poorly-received game they already made. Have they even shown where the development money has gone? Seems strange that they would carry on development before securing all the necessary funds to complete the game.

Only a 10% overclock? The 980 could OC by 15-20%.
I think you missed the fact that it's a 10% overclock on the stock air cooler - which is pretty decent. Of course it will be better once cards are released with better cooling features.

Also, as has been pointed out, some other sites got even more out of their review cards.

They tested the Founder's Edition, not the stock 1080.

The Founder's Edition IS the standard cooler card, isn't it?

The Verge article clears it up a bit... - apparently Founders Edition are the new reference Nvidia cards, and they cost $100 more than "typical retail prices" due to "craftsmanship". Whether that translates to higher OC speeds than third party solutions is something we'll need to see.

If it's crashing when you get close to a bonfire, set the lighting quality to Low. Worked for me.

I have 3 beta keys left. PM me if you want one.

The game is a bit crap, however.

The game is 75 canadian... Even more than Fallout 4... That's a little too much.

It's 45 in the UK, which is $91 CAD. Although part of that is the exchange rate, 45 is still pretty damn steep for a PC game.

something tells me this is a revolt against the lack of dedicated servers in MW2, and infinity ward's general arrogance.

That has to be the worst demo showing ever... draws badly on a whiteboard, punches a wall and some boxes then blows himself up with the Devastator. The game does, however, look pretty cool. The stadium scene with the Devastator just brought back the memories...

i have to disagree. i thought police chases were excellent. i loved the game and can't wait for the sequel. cruising around with random people online was a really cool feature. however it does kind of look like the same island which would suck...

News Comments > Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 2's Length
21. Re: Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 2's Length Oct 20, 2009, 16:00 IgWannA
 
the biggest problem i had with MW1 was the pacing was far too fast. i'm all for the hollywood explosions and hundreds of bad guys, but as long as it's balanced with slower sections where you can take a breather and get soaked into the atmosphere and story (was there even a story in MW1?). i read a couple of reviews of uncharted 2 where they praised the fact there were a few slower sections and it was really well paced and not completely bombastic.

considering the insane bank IW will make from MW2 (and have already made from MW1) you would think they could afford to make a longer game. like GTA 4 was such a long, insanely detailed game and spent $100 million on it because they knew it would sell anyway, so they could afford to make it long. i think IW just want the money and don't care about giving the gamers actual content.

News Comments > Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Patch Plans
7. Re: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Patch Plans Oct 14, 2009, 18:44 IgWannA
 
The game is woefully short. I've only played maybe 5 hours and I'm almost on mission 10 of 11. I've also completed all 5 bonus missions, each take about 15 minutes.

It's really as if the missions were a complete afterthought. No story, no planning, missions are incredibly linear... oh yeah, and bugs, I have already written about 4 pages worth on their forum. As yet no one from Codemasters has replied to say what bugs they are working on, or even to give a master list of bugs they are aware of. Reporting bugs to them feels like a complete waste of time.

But aside from that the game does have a certain something that could make it into a great game if they patch all the hundreds of bugs, keep adding missions with more dialogue, story, impact and suspense. It'll be interesting to see user-made missions.

after being drip fed shit videos for this game i was expecting something special. i was sorely disappointed. the game looks absolutely nothing like the screenshots, just really bad graphic quality overall (grass is only drawn to about 20 feet!).

seriously codemasters you better have produced something special with this license...
