I always wondered if they cast Buschemi for that role specifically because he looks exactly like the kind of person who would get space madness.

There's a lot of room for improvement in regards to how the open world is treated especially if factions are introduced. When you play through the map most survivors you come across are either quick cash-grabs for saving them, escort quests or you listen to them ramble on about how shitty the situation is.

Rais and his goons were fun but entirely an on-rails experience.

It's a very linear experience built around a sand box but it's still a lot of fun so any improvements to the world and modding will definitely be well received.

So what if the dude at Behaviour Interactive didn't straight up lift code but re-wrote portions of it which included a reproducible error on both titles?

How far does copyright/patent law go in regards to code? Is it treated as a literary work with controversy over what can and can't be?

logged in on PC

searched for a server with players on it... after about 15 min of trying different combinations of filters.. finally found one.

thats pretty pathetic.

Yeah. No. This sounds like user error assuming you even actually tried because there are a lot of games to join often with queues at any hour throughout the day especially with Conquest.

they must be putting those cores to good use if they are getting an 8350 anywhere near the speed of a 6600k

AMD and Frostbite are funny. At least they were before Ryzen released. Frostbite will scale with higher clocks, cores and threads so you'd think an 8350 would have some redeeming factors to take advantage of this but right up until BF1 it would regularly get snuffed by an i3 6100 even in DX12 due to the massive IPC deficiencies found in pre-Ryzen AMD chips.

At first launch, Cyberpunk 2077 will load all contents of the world, but thatís the only time youíll be greeted with a loading screen in the game.

That would probably explain the 32GB of RAM they had on the demo floor. There are tricks in which you can load assets in to the game without knowing it such as elevators, long tunnels, delayed interactions, mandatory cut scenes and a dialogue tree which I am sure this will be full of so they're technically correct to not have any loading screens.

The best kind of correct.

More like Trollout 76

Don't have to worry about the success of Fallout 76, this game is going to flop on it's face. I have zero faith that they can even get the game to work on a technical level let alone get a handle on the player griefing that will be off the charts.

Ehhh it'll be out in November so I suspect they already have a working product fulfilling their goals. Bugs are a different story though.

It almost sounds like their version of PVP is centered around proximity so maybe being out of combat or being a certain distance will disable it and put it on a reverse timer or something. They seem to be dancing around the details though so I remain skeptical yet curious as to how they'll solve this.

I suspect much of its success won't be front loaded though. Once mods and private servers become a thing there's a lot of room for potential providing it's more streamlined to mod the game than it is now where an update can potentially break everything. Being online only really doesn't bother me either. It's current year meme and the only time I don't have the internet is when the power is actually out and most games which I already play now require an internet connection. I'm not a huge fan of playing with strangers especially when there is built in VoIP but given the size and the player cap I'll slug it out until private servers are a things where me and my friends can be against the world.

Fallout survived going from an isometric CRPG to a FPRPG so I'm sure it'll be okay with tacked on multiplayer for a spin off title.

It didn't take long before Eve Online players pointed out that Star Citizen's Vulture looks a lot like Eve Online's Vulture, which looks like this.

Mistake in the article. This is a copy of the Venture. The Vulture is a Caldari Command Ship IIRC. Unless this was done on purpose...

Seems like a lot of the issues folks were on about with F76 have been answered in a satisfying way. I really like the fact that there is an end game which revolves around nuclear fallout too.

The only issue I have is whether or not there's a way to flag where your camp is when you log off since the camp logs off with you. Could you log back in to a nuclear detonation zone or re-join a game on top of another camp?

Granted there are only dozens of players per server which is 4x larger than Fallout 4 but I'm sure it's something which could happen especially if you happen across prime real estate.

3 points? That's it? You could have been averaging 10% by investing it plus the compounding from front end loading, or even better in a DRIP. I'd say they owe you more, especially considering they shouldn't have been taking it to begin with. They certainly made more money on it than you did. Sup to you but I'd consult with a lawyer at least. Won't cost you anything except a few minutes of your time. You may be entitled to a good deal more.

Looks like they've been taking about 6.45% interest from me so I'll see about getting a consultation with the local firm since they specialize in a ton of fields.

Resident Evil 2 was the first PC game I purchased before I even owned a PC.

Can't tell how many times I stared at the box and re-read the details of the game that I could not play, lol.

I remember when I was younger my friend invited me to go to Halifax with his family and since they owned a video rental store they were going to make their rounds to buy movies through distributors, pawn shops, Costco and pretty much anywhere else they could think of.

I was looking to buy RE2 since it was relatively new and saved all my money before trip. Sure enough after we had lunch at a steakhouse in Dartmouth the first pawn store we hit was across the street and had the dual jeweled case in sweet glory under the glass for $40. Discs in mint condition.

Boy what a time that was. Spent the next three days much like you staring at the case.

How much did they overcharge you and what interest did they pay on it? You may want to talk to a lawyer. Could be they owe you a lot more - possible penalty - and are just hoping you'll take it and not ask questions. Ask questions.

Broken down it's $3,394.78 in premiums and an additional amount of $596.81 which was calculated based on an annual rate of 3% applied to each premium amount charged to the LOC, compounded monthly.

Huh, never knew that TD Bank was "Toronto Dominion". Interesting.

Well on the one hand, they over charged you. On the other hand, at least the found it and fixed it, instead of just hiding the mistake as Wells Fargo surely would have done. Did they include interest on the over charges? With that amount I assume this was done over a long period.

Oh yeah, I've been dragging my ass on this student loan for a while now but this will put a nice dent right back in it.

Bank fucked up my student line of credit and for years I've been paying a premium for something which was never attached to it.

Got nearly $4000 direct deposited to my account. Dude on the phone was excited for me too.

Had good fun with Resident Evil 7 but ill skip thy remakes...

Any particular reason why? Zero was relatively uneventful but REmake was a pretty fantastic experience especially if you're not a huge fan of the post RE4 era.

My biggest let down in regards to DL is that the modding community doesn't feel that great. At all. I was really hoping that once given the tools it would really open up further potential but most of what's released is just awful.

That and the QTE they snuck it at the end. Totally needless.

Looking forward to this though. Chris Avellone is working on the story so that could definitely iron one of the short comings of the first.

I hate EA as much as the next guy but to think this wasn't inevitable or to bag on it as if the game was exclusively Battle Royale is a little reaching.

It's one of several modes. Conquest will always be my jam.
