i really wish we had the option here of different internet providers. the only choice in this area began throttling primetime youtube and netflix traffic a month or two ago. they went so overboard with it a few days ago that while the sites were loading fine, the videos just timed out forcing me to finally set up a vpn on all my devices to use the services i already pay to access.

i was stoked about this until i found out it was windows store only. unfortunately being a windows store app means:

no fullscreen exclusive
no vsync options, vsync always on
no sli/crossfire support
can't launch it from the exe, so no steam overlay support
no mods or sweetfx

comparing it to GFWL isn't hyperbole, windows 10 store is honestly worse.

I'm guessing after that they'll want a urine sample and a notarized statement that Sega are legally empowered to administer corporal punishment if you attempt to engage the official Sonic twitter account in erotic roleplay.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

i'm doing my part!

Would you like to know more?

Is this game still nothing but spamming your weapon like a 2003 arcady shooter? I saw a couple gameplay videos a few months back and it was nothing but bullet spraying with players and npcs barely taking damage.

until you level up and loot better gear. it's supposed to be rpg-esque.

There are mods that turn off the weapons breaking and the infinite enemy spawns for SS2, makes it much more enjoyable.

The real ending to SS2 was lost I believe to a hard drive crash and the one they ended up putting in the game was a last minute hack.

i remember that, but ken levine claims someone made the wrong ending cinematic requiring rewrites. which doesn't make any real sense since it was just animated and rendered in engine.

it's actually funny reading his claims about this very different game they had planned when considering bioshock. he had a chance to make a whole new game and then didn't just make a game like system shock 2, he made a game that was system shock 2. the same isolated environment, the same characters, the same story beats and exact same villain reveal, the same mediocre gunplay and psi powers-- i mean, plasmids, the hacking, etc etc. just dumbed down a notch for console tards and more plot beats pushed into the background with audio logs.

i wonder how fucked up the next generation is going to be growing up on such a short leash. and when they're going to need to be tough, to make something of the shitshow the world is becoming in the next few years. i don't envy them.

i do have to wonder how much of shatner's recollections are sincere and how much is him rewriting his memory. i remember when george takei sent him an invitation to his wedding which shatner skipped, then publicly groused about not getting invited. apparently takei is used to this bullshit because he'd sent the invite certified.

Forza Horizon 3. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Also, yeah, that KotOR remake is likely going to get Cease & Desisted by Disney Real Soon Now(tm)

i don't even know what those guys are thinking. black mesa is the only example of a successful remake, but they had valve's active blessing and a license to distribute it! and they're talking about being open to donations to make this.

I think Pillars of Eternity: the White March Part 2 is getting released today - my game just started a 1.8GB update. News on it here:

PoE White March part 2

Is the expansion worth buying? The base game is absolutely great!

Really? I despised it. In fact I just started trying it again and ended up uninstalling it after a few hours. Horrible mechanics and needlessly verbose and hackneyed writing. It's easily Obsidian's worst game by a long shot. It appears to be one of those love it or hate it affairs for most and I'm firmly in the latter camp.

"bad mechanics" sounds like "i'm not used to it and therefore it is bad". everyone hated it at first but the mechanics are solid.

the writing though, urghhh.. it is so densely written, i still don't fully comprehend the plot. without any publisher oversight they just went crazy, writing and writing and writing in their design echo chamber, the "less conventional" the better.

worth noting though that the "soul views" you can get of people are all backer written which is why they're universally terrible.

Can you take an OEM version of, say, Windows 7 and perform the upgrade to Windows 10 as if it were retail?

yeah oem works fine. there's no way to convert a key, so actually getting a clean install of w10 is a headache.

It would be more appealing thematically and maybe at least slightly controversial if you were playing a German MG42 operator on D-day. Maybe next game!

shooters are such a saturated market. when i see a military/ww2 game my eyes glaze over.

i'll give them credit, seeing them try to stir the pot and carry Postal's torch at least made me look at their games, but both look pretty mundane to me.

i seriously think it's been 10 years or more since i jumped into a game of DM. last online game i put serious time in was GTA5 for it's heist mode which was pretty great, but difficult to get friends together for. but when you have a good team, it's magic.

Since these OVERLOAD guys have people on board who worked on FreeSpace, they should have considered making a good old traditional space sim with an epic single player campaign..

Not letting the player "turn the tide" or otherwise be a deciding factor, any faction could end up on top regardless of the player though maybe let them influence it a bit (perhaps if certain characters/ships are destroyed some faction becomes stronger/weaker).

well who knows, this could end up like that. that was a staple of freespace 1 and 2's plot, making the player feeling like a cog in the machine, and this game's campaign is apparently written by the same guy.

battlefield hardlines did much better on consoles

it was dead before the first xpac on pc

it was really a flop all around. it's hitting 2500 players on pc and 8000 on consoles. i'm assuming because everyone is still playing battlefield 4, which still has player counts pushing 30k+ on pc/ps4, 20k on xbox1.

i also think it was a boring game and the kind of people who would be playing it on pc are probably already playing cs:go.

Interesting that he went with Beamdog instead of Obsidian. That said, he probably wouldn't have been able to get the same position at Obsidian, whereas he has a lot more leverage at Beamdog. Definitely interested in seeing how Beamdog handles their first original games.

i honestly figured he'd do some indie thing, or maybe focus on his (admittedly quite bad) novels. i remember him saying he was with bioware for too long, ready for new challenges, and he ends up with.. this? stepping back in time to work on an old project with the same old dialog systems he worked on for like 15 years at bioware?

Well, I think that entirely as a response to your videos that they need another beta to regain the trust necessary for a good launch.

It sucks, but some PC games are just dead on arrival, and fade after 1-2 weeks. Kinda makes me wish I was alright with playing on a console, they have the numbers to keep games alive.

i can't think of any games that bombed on PC but flourished on consoles.

also, ubisoft's sales are currently 20% pc, making it their second most significant platform with xbone rounding out the bottom of the next gen pack at 12% and ps4 at 27%. i don't think the difference is as big as people think.

though certain kinds of games certainly have their pet platforms. if i wanted to play call of duty multi for the rest of my days i'd buy an xbox one.
