Is this offline bot mp?

No, its a setting you gotta tick when creating an online lobby (aka, becoming the host) and considering how dead (and ridden with cheaters, due to no anti-cheat) this game is already, you might as well not bother
Well poo.

You can make private matches though.. with bots ^^ So it's still online, but you won't be bothered by others.

Forgot that private lobby is an option nowadays... when I played it wasn't. So yeah, you can play yourself, alone, against bots, without other players being able to join. And from what I see, bots are actually competent.. and they'll use pickups and the special and all that.

So it ain't as bad as I made it sound at first

News Comments > Space Hulk Deathwing Delayed Until Next Week

After the TB beta "first look" this is damage control, nothing more. And don't take this the wrong way, damage control is good, when it leads to a fixed and fun game.

But the beta was.. well, PS1 era gameplay with stunning environment graphics. They nailed the spacehulk look so much that I wish they'd remove the stupid tids and just let us walk through it in VR (funnily enough, the same thing I think when I think about Aliens Isolation.

I fully expect this game in particular to have a TON of "why only in VR?" complainers in the forums. It actually LOOKS decent, is a large game (not just a single small environment). Has co-op! Prolly picking this up this week.

A good VR game is gonna be exclusively VR, I doubt you'll find anyone complaining of a VR game that does things "right" being.. VR only.

And as you say, this looks interesting, though I don't think I'd wanna play this standing ;p

Well... one of the best VR games right now is Elite: Dangerous, which isn't VR only. Cockpit sims benefit enormously from VR but don't have to make it mandatory.

Well cockpit stuff is always gonna work for VR.. but we are still in the beginning of decent VR only content, as in made for VR experiences that aren't conversions, but maybe even new genres..

The left wants nothing more than to control what we read and what we write and is using every "fake" trick in the book to try and get that control. Horrible and 100% anti-American.

In response to Trump Advisor Blackburn Wants ISPs to Pull Fake News Offline

Oooooooooookay.

It's called cognitive dissonance or post-factual thinking. (the "felt" reality vs the "real" reality)

I can't even play the original because of Games for Windows Live. It just won't work. I'm not the only one having that issue with the game.

Didn't they update it for Steamworks? Maybe this wasn't one of the ones that got updated.

No, Bulletstorm never received an update and it is one of the only SP focused GFWL games that uses module auth, meaning online OR cracked profile only (or GFWL removal crack). And neither did GTA 4, btw. For both games GFWL is mandatory to save. And the only way to save nowadays, in both games, if you don't remember your GFWl account details (since it won't allow you to reset passwords or anything) is to remove GFWL with a crack.

And yes, Rockstar also did not patch out GFWL in GTA 4.... sigh

And it doesn't look much better in the GPU market either. 1060 is superior in every aspect to the 480 now that 1060 prices are equal.

No, 1060 is in no way superior in all or even most aspects to 480. I am not sure what your opinion is even based on, considering gaming benchmarks of new games are readily available.

Check out an article like the 1050Ti review below at Guru3D, where you can make comparisons between current performances of 1060 6GB and 480 8GB.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_geforce_gtx_1050_ti_g1_gaming_oc_review,12.html

In DX11 games, 480 and 1060 take the lead back and forth in various game. In DX12 games, 480 stretches the lead even further.

In the benchmark I checked, like the one for BF1 for example the 480 is a good 11% slower

Your benchmarks are however quite interesting.. my data was from July (not my BF1 data, but what my previous impression was based on) And it seems the 480 performs much better nowadays. So I'll revise my opinion as well. The 1060 is in selected areas superior, like power consumption... ;p
Real world review http://www.hardocp.com/article/2016/11/10/gigabyte_rx_480_g1_gaming_vs_msi_gtx_1060_x/1

Campaign benchmark though, PC Games did a MP 64 player run ;/ You see this kind of stuff is why I am confused what to think about the 480. It doesn't seem like either card is really future proof either.

What card would you buy if you wanted to be secure for the next VR generation?

How exactly do you optimize a display driver for a controller?

They are not, the actual PDF says
"Oculus Touch launch titles"

Ie, they are optimized for the titles, not for the controller

2. Re: Why No Full Clip Edition Upgrades for Bulletstorm Owners Dec 5, 2016, 19:13 eRe4s3r
 
The real reason is that Gearbox doesn't own the IP, unlike say, Nordic with Darksiders. Which makes you wonder why the hell there is such a "enhanced" edition for Bulletstorm. It's essentially a re-release with a new main character model/voice, but that is it. Literally. Can't think of a more odd "enhanced" edition.

Should be interesting what the 8*** series will bring. Considering nothing AMD does is even close to an 6700K intel is in no hurry or competition either.. and that is the real problem ;/
I want, no, the industry needs AMD to succeed.
But when an i3 makes a decent gaming box and an i5 stomps almost anything AMD produces, i don't know if success is in AMDs future.

And it doesn't look much better in the GPU market either. 1060 is superior in every aspect to the 480 now that 1060 prices are equal. And ATI doesn't even compete against the 1070 or 1080

I don't get why both Nvidia and Intel are so far ahead in technology cycles either. It seems for every iteration either company does, AMD/ATI do 1 less. And that obviously leads to disaster. ;(

And I want competition! I still use a AMD cpu, but the upgrade is looming ever closer, and it doesn't look like AMD is even decent in the competition for upgrade paths...

Before it all became computerized, I spent 3-4 years as a drafter (mostly electrical schematics) which involved a lot of lettering. Since then all my printing is in capitalized letters and the only cursive I can probably do is my signature. Hell, I can barely print lower case letters anymore because I haven't hardly done it since the early 90's.

For me the print writing style was formed far more mundane. I wrote a note in cursive, needless to say, NOBODY in my office could read it... yay!

print since then, though my lowercase w,p,l vs W P I look really really weird ... but as added benefit, I KNOW what I write can be read by anyone who can read. Which in office environment or even for shopping notes, can be a huge deciding factor to stop using this god awful cursive writing.

Signature is only time I use cursive, and it's gotten so bad I have actual problems being able to read it when people have a very very unique slant to their swirly lines. My parents cursive for example I just flat out can't even identify as text, they learned the "old" cursive and the new one. And if you wonder what I mean with old cursive, I mean https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%BCtterlin and funnily enough, computers gave me some skill at reading Fraktur.

Uh, its been a while lol but I pretty sure a friend and I could play together against AI or do joint missions in MW3.

Ah .. MW 2 Mercenaries did have COOP but dang that was ages ago. MW 3.. can't remember that at all.

It was never COOP I wanted to play often apparently.... ^^

Either way, to me COOP wouldn't be a relevant feature in a merc campaign... MW4 Mercs is what sets my expectations.. and so they are very low to begin with

MWO was pretty... lackluster. It felt kinda consolised, with a lot of missing features depth. And the mech bay UI got progressively worse over time.

Saying that, if this has co-op i'll definitely try it out though, as i have fond memories of playing the early mechwarriors in co-op.

Single player on rails? Pass.

??

Mechwarrior 2 did not have coop
Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries however did have local coop vs AI
Mechwarrior 3 did not have coop (did however have local vs AI)
Mechwarrior 4 did not have coop (coop mod via Mektek 3.1 does, however with no campaign, no objectives, no mercenary layer, and shit AI that can't cope with 2 players ;p)

Played MW4 Mektek 3.1 with Coop mod/campaign then? I wonder seriously where your "fond memories" come from Or do you mean the MP missions with AI? Was that in 2 ? That was never COOP in the sense of the word...

I would much rather have a MW 4 Mercs sequel that is within the Mechwarrior canon story, and goes from 3015 trough to the clan invasions.... and it seems I get that. And from what I hear, people want a SP Mechwarrior 5 primarily, not tacked on COOP, which it would be. Since you can't have the merc company management layer in coop.. least not without designing the entire game around coop.
