this game is made by some ex-cavedog guys based on their old cancelled game Amen: The Awakening from 17 years ago. also one of the only games jeremy soule has scored recently, based on the work he was doing on amen way back when.

I still don't want an AMD/ATI card.

Not sure why I'd pay to have to wait for fixes for practically every game ever.

"Man I sure saved a bunch and stuck it to those nVidia-tards!"

"Cool man! Let's go play some <insert new game here>"

"Yeah...I wanna but I gotta wait for a fix first...can we play something old...er?" Embarrassed

Do you really not see the irony of posting this commentary in a topic about a Nvidia driver fix for a brand new game they had some release driver issues with? AMD has a terrible track record with this stuff, but it is mainly in their history as you don't hear much about newer games having issues, and when they do they are resolved pretty quick it seems. NVidia are the ones who have been screwing things up on the software side for a while. Geforce Experience is a fucking mess still, and their drivers are up to almost a half-gig now. Shadowplay/share is still a broken mess. Their installers are starting to unravel because of typos and registry errors with older drivers, to the point that using something like DDU is necessary to even install newer versions of geforce experience and other elements of their "software package".

Both companies are shit in the software/driver category right now. Yeah, they work.. but there is a lot of BS involved with either of them anymore if you look at the whole picture.


i've read more than once over the years - here, for example - from driver programmers that the real need for "fixes" is to smooth over badly written render code from the developers themselves. similar to how old versions of IE just continuously allowed bad HTML to display in their browsers for the sake of compatibility.

I don't play these for the mediocre shooting mechanics and Force power knockoffs.

then why are you playing any of the games in the mass effect series?

i find this disappointing if true. bioware has always been too indulgent of their crybaby fanbase and it seems to be in this case you just had the burgeoning alt-right fuckwaddery that pc-gaming has become set its sites on this game from the word go. activision didn't cancel fucking call of duty because the internet decided to bandwagon its youtube trailer. ea should take the cue and ignore the braying and neighing of these barnyard animals.

News Comments > Quake Champions Open Tech Test Friday

i've been having a good time with champions. i think it's the best balance of modern fps trappings and classic gameplay we're going to get. really what DOOM multiplayer should have been. i like the abilities, they're usually tied to movement and not even on the same page as overwatch ultimates, when i hear that criticism i can generally assume the person saying it has never played quake champions or overwatch.

but even if it were a literal direct mechanic port of quake 3 i don't think quake live purists would pick it up. they've been playing the same game for 20 years and bethesda is wise not to bother trying to cater to their awful community.

France is proof that the world is rejecting the crazies, in ~1300 days America can do the same. Unless of course impeachment deprives the electorate of that noble task.

you're living in a dream world if you think congress is going to turn on a republican president. they know their base thinks they're on a sports team. they don't look at trump as a reason to quit, they look at him like a football fan looks at the coach during a down season. they yell and curse and are mad, but they'll be goddamned if they'll sell all their merch and years of devotion over a "setback." pure sunk cost.

plus this is ignoring that mike pence is less insane and more re-electable. at least donald trump is fucking incompetent and doesn't outright say "maybe the sick should pray more and they would get better" while planning to slash away their ability to seek medical care.

and still they'll vote for him and curse the liberals on their deathbeds. fucking morons.

Marc Laidlaw, Wolpaw and now Chet.

Pretty much puts the nail in the coffin of getting a HL3.

We've had HL3 for years, it's called Metro LL. It's pretty cool.

i'm glad to see someone else feels this way. Last Light and Wolfenstein: The New Order were my personal half-life 3 experiences, they're just that well crafted.

THE DARK TOWER - Official Trailer.
w00+!!!!
Idris Elba is great.
The only thing he might not be good at would be playing wonder woman or a young spiderman, but even that's debatable.

while we only have like 10 seconds of dialog to work with in the trailer, i wouldn't be surprised if idris elba outshines mcconaughey in this. he looks super dialed in.

Any game that requires you to beat it 3 to 4 times (with the core being drab and repetitive) is not fun.

gating content like that is a total fucking failure of design.

the criticism of g2a shield is perfectly valid in my opinion since it auto-subscribes you to a renewing charge and the cancellation process is ridiculous. i went through it myself once, there are over a dozen click through steps, the final one being a confirmation email the site tells you will arrive in "about 15 minutes". it's timed not to send until exactly 15 minutes have passed, and the cancellation link inside expires after a few minutes itself.

the claim that it's a hotbed of thievery just doesn't hold water for me though. i have no doubt there are stolen keys sitting on g2a right now but the only cases i can recall are ubisoft revoking 1000 far cry 4 keys - which g2a re-imbursed all the purchasers of, g2ashield or no - and about the same amount of natural selection 2 keys. both were bought en masse through the humble store.

tinybuild also likes to bandy about the claim that they've lost 450,000 dollars from g2a because they think they deserve to get a cut from the resale of bundle keys on the g2a platform. give me a fucking break. just like always, people who would normally have to pay $60 are getting a game for $40 and some developers are crying over potential lost revenue. we've seen the same bullshit and crying about the secondhand market again and again in games; online activation limits, one-time use DLC, etc, all because game publishers think first sale doctrine doesn't apply to their industry. get fucked with that.

Well, if they know what region the key came from and I'm not logging in from that region or accessing an account located in that region...

It would be quite trivial for them to block someone like me right now. Especially if they distributed a certain amount of keys to each region for load balance testing and don't want a bunch of Russian keys logging in to US servers.

Their announcement in the launcher says it opens again on the 21st at 10am, not tomorrow.

they bumped the start up a day about an hour ago. god damnit, i was off tomorrow.

there are currently only two servers and you can choose which one to connect to so don't fret about region locking. play the game and have fun and be sure to comment on the beta forum.

hey you miserable shits, this forum is currently giving away 20,000 beta keys for quake champions. you'll need to register to acquire the key.

russian = automatic nope =D those guys will hack you just cuz you're not russian.

I just grabbed a key from that Russian site with a throwaway email while logged into my VPN and was able to activate it to my regular Bethesda account, so it isn't region locked or anything. Downloaded and installed Champions... *shrug*... TBD if it actually works on the 21st when the beta opens again.

"TBD"? i was expecting goofball faux wariness from people because russians are going to send you a spike for looking at their videogame forum but you really think your legitimate key you already activated with bethesda isn't going to work or something? also it starts tomorrow at 10am est.

That is provided they are female...

8 star wars movies, 2 female leads. oh no, girls are ruining star wars.

i'd muse on why so many of you nerds have such a complex about girls and girl-coded concepts but it's not exactly rocket science.
