but you still need a minimal internet connection for the server to update.

...yep and that's why Mr. Braben broke his promise and Cutter is perfectly right.

The demo got me hooked into buying it once a 50% off sale hit. It's a much more solid game than I was expecting.

Same here!

Best Zombie shooter I've played ever. This announcement is one more reason to get the expansion...

It's good to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive doing so well.

Meh... I guess. I just find it amazing there are still people alive, with a computer, that don't have CS:GO, or have already played enough of the previous versions to be utterly sick of the CS format.

$15 Elite:Dangerous was too tempting, I contributed to that #5 placement, I'm sorry to say.

Yeah, after several years of hardcore CS I have zero urge to ever go back.

As for ED I've been tempted to grab it too...then I read the negative reviews and remember why I don't buy it. At least ETS2 has some nice scenery. Sounds like they focused way too much on size and realism and forgot the fun.

Focus on size and realism is fine. The completely unnecessary always-on DRM isn't. Why would I pay anything for a broken "no-DRM" promise?

Sony recommends 90fps at minimum for best PlayStation VR experience on PS4

ROFL. Consoles barely hit 30 fps in recent titles.

I'm mighty surprised. One must assume most of these 12M copies are for consoles. Because the PC port is a $60 catastrophe that can't be played with a mouse/keyboard in its current state and form.

Elite is fantastic.

I watched people play it on Twitch several times when I was thinking about buying it, and it seemed incredibly boring and monontous. They were all just repeating the same tasks over and over. Didn't see any compelling reason to buy it.

You guys need to look at the prices before you make comments about games "falling down the list". Several of those games wouldn't have even been on it without significant discounts.

Right, and keeping all that Boredom "alive" and "dynamic" definitely requires always-on DRM..... fuck that and f. u. Braben.

I, too, picked up Dying Light because it was on sale and because I just picked up a 970. I wanted something that I could use to torture the card.

It's certainly pretty but I'm having a problem where I am getting motion sickness playing it. I've got the FOV almost cranked all the way up to the right.

It's silky smooth here on my 970 with everything maxed. Playing at 1080p though.

The Dying Light sale was good enough for me to bite

I've had this on my wishlist, then they released the demo and a now a couple of weeks later the first big sale. Steam bastards LOL!

I've already played several hours and I'm loving it so far. Awesome graphics (on par with Witcher 3 imo), very decent GUI/smooth gameplay, nice storyline.

This has a System Shock kind of vibe to it, however I doubt it has its depth.

I was actually thinking of Xenomorph. But that was a very long time ago. Pre-3D era.

Guess I should finally check this out. Never played it, but remember walking past that box art in the store...


You won't regret it. Played and enjoyed it for the 1st time back in '94. Same league as SS2. Yes, graphics are dated but the game itself is top notch and this is what counts.

I absolutely loved Supreme Commander. While it had issues in version 1.00 they did a great job fixing most of them in subsequent updates. SupCom FA turned out great and polished. SupCom 2 was consolified garbage though.

So would you guys recommend PA:T considering I really liked SupCom 1?? Can the two be compared?

Dying Light 2 may be too ambitious for PS4 & Xbox One.

Wow, so it hasn't even been two years yet, but next gen consoles are already becoming last gen.

There's hope in this headline. It could mean that DL2 might be a PC exclusive.

News Comments > Divinity: Original Sin II Announced

Never finished the D:OS because of its issues that became increasingly annoying.

The GUI was broken and made playing the game super difficult for a leftie like me.

Key binding was very limited, lots of people complained about this on the Larian forums and guess what: The developers didn't give a damn and never fixed it.

Tedious turn-based battles that could take artificially long thanks to an immature GUI that forces you to aim your mouse down to an exact pixel. Being off one pixel might send your explosive arrow right into the back of your party member - ouch!

Plenty of sudden instant death punishments.... "save often because we will kill you often because we can".

List goes on.

Not looking forward to part 2.

Wonder if we'll see Fury X improvements...

I'm still scratching my head at 4GB of vram on a $650 card, when games are hitting 4+ last year and this year already, and the card was touted as some kind of 4k monster.

thats because the memory bandwidth is 4096 bit

the bandwidth on the 970 is 256 bit

in other words - IT GO FASTER

On the 970 it's actually 224+32 bit. Thanks to the awesome unique split bus feature on this card. The Nividia CEO himself explains it right here: http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2015/02/24/gtx-970/

It's so uber-awesome that no other Nvidia card has it!

Nice bump for Terraria. Looking forward to trying Styx albeit on the ps4, as it's free there in July.


So you're basically a low-down, rotten traitor to the PC master race is what you're saying... Police

I think the whole PCMR sucks ass, frankly. I go where the fun games are, and don't limit myself to one platform.



Sorry to say but consoles used to be equal or par to pc but the the general dumbness and idiocy of the masses dumbed down gaming (aka no more alpha centauri for you!).

Trying to reason with people who buy/use consoles has no effect in most cases. I know it's tempting but in my experience it's best to just facepalm quietly and then walk away. Saves you a lot of time and effort you can instead spend on playing a decent PC game.

After seeing the previews and the highly dumbed down interface with useless choice options I'm very wary of this one.

Agreed. This is definitely not a day one purchase.

For $20, maybe...

On a side note: There are people that would preorder a turd - as long as it has a "Fallout" (or any other fancy) name tag on it.
