News Comments > AS+CEND Early Access
4. Re: AS+CEND Early Access Sep 28, 2018, 00:01 gsilver
 
I tried it out... I'm sadly not impressed. The controls are needlessly clunky, and the weapon ranges are such that the environments might as well not be there. You need to either get really close to fire, or retreat (and not far) to let your weapons/shields cool off.

I'm also not a fan of the cool off mechanic. It seems to take entirely too long to get off even a couple of shots.

I'm also terrible at it, being unable to finish the tutorial.

The 2080 Ti is delayed a week so that they can update the price tags to be $100 more expensive, because "Courage"

Good to know that when my ipad becomes unusable, its replacement will be an Android tablet.

While I don't use the headphone jack on my ipad as frequently as, say, my phone, I still use it several times a year (usually on trips) and have decent headphones that I have no interest in replacing for some wireless pair.

I like the way that this creates paradoxes for certain games, like Fallout 3, that don't run properly with Windows 7+

I've been curious about the Yakuza games, so this is nice to see.

The move to flash drives is a good one. With the move to more compact computer cases, I've generally given up the optical drive in my PCs (and while the cases will take slim slot-loading drives, those are expensive)

The only reason why I even keep one around at all is the occasional music cd rip, or (maddeningly) when I need to get drivers and the vendor failed to provide downloads.

I haven't seen a PC without USB since the 90s.

Oh. Wow. I'm definitely checking those out. As a big fan of both Serious Sam and VR, I've put the games in my cart many times, but never pulled the trigger.

The important question is:
Is it made by AtGames?


If so, then there's zero reason to get excited.
If not... I'll wait for the reviews. I wouldn't mind a Genesis box, since I had one when I was a kid.

Sounds like they have a case.
CIG/RSI never should have agreed to such terms. Imagine if Duke Nukem Forever was in development for as long as it was, but released in 2011 using the Quake 2 engine... Wait a minute. That might have been better than what we actually got.

I've been looking at this one for a long time, but early access and the low number of players scared me off.

Judging from the store page now, it looks like it's reasonably close to finished, and it has a nice boost in player base right now.

Probably a decent time to finally check it out.

I once had an egg pop in my mouth. It was about as much fun as one would expect.

Well, at least the negative reviews so far have mostly been about issues that are patchable. Hopefully they fix it.

Re: YouTube battery drain:
Iíve been using version 12.41 and have had problems with it draining the battery while not in use, but according to the article, only 12.42 and 12.43 were affected...

Well, hereís hoping that it fixes it...

I 'membered the original Flight Unlimited being a showcase title back in the day. This... I'd feel ashamed to have it in my account.

Ick. The worst part of the time change is when you arenít able to sleep through it.

I woke up at the first 1am, had the clock run back to 1am again an hour later.
...and was still awake after 4.

Finally got some sleep, but woke up at used-to-be-7-but-is-now-6

Woo. Facing the first day of dreary winter time on 4 hours of sleep.

The end of DST is very much losing an hour to me, since it means that Iíll be in the office an hour later every night, and will no longer get an hour of sunlight after work. Now itís maybe a few minutes, if I leave early.

Uck. Canít we just stay on DST year round?

//And thatís ignoring the fact that Iíve been getting tired and waking up too early... My body would love the clocks to spring forward!

And remember:
If there's anyone on the service that you don't like and they killed you in game, after a match with them, just say that you're a Twitch streamer and they stream sniped you.

They did add bot matches recently in the co-op team deathmatch mode. Though the AI is rather bad.
