if anyone's on the fence about this title, it's currently 32 dollars on origin when you use the code TITAN20 at checkout; it stacks with the current black friday sale.
I don't see anywhere to input this code up until "Pay now"

You have to put the game into the 'cart,' start to pay for it, and at the Review Purchase page, you can submit coupons/codes in the lower left.

The code works, final price (USD) for me was $31.99.

Going to try the game out when time permits, tonight hopefully. Just finished downloading/installing.

The current Blizzard devs would probably make a shitty version of Ghost, to be honest.

A very polished, graphically pleasing, but ultimately shitty version of some sort of stealth based FPS.

Just laying it out there.

News Comments > Battlefield 1 Patch Complaints
4. Re: Battlefield 1 Patch Complaints Nov 20, 2016, 17:36 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I'd be interested to see what driver version these guys are using also, after the initial round of complaints I only installed 375.70, as the 375.86 Nvidia drivers were supposedly partially to blame.

I didn't take a set of before and after screenshots though, game still looks very, VERY good on my system. Non SLI, GTX1070 8gb, 2560x1440p, 144hz, i7-6700k 4.0ghz, 32gb(!)DDR4, M2 SSD.

Now I'm going to go run around on the forest maps and look at the leaves, see if I should be furious or not.

This issue aside, DICE seems to have a pretty decent job on this launch, compared to BF4. Now that was truly a buggy unplayable mess at first.

People do realize it doesn't cost 100 million dollars to make a video game right? They have made enough $ to sustain 1 video game for 50 years worth of development and sustain servers. This is a total SHAM moneygrab. It reminds me of the way penny stocks are marketed. Here's a long letter and some stretch goals every few weeks... keep sending us more $ so we can maintain our lavish lifestyles...
People do realize there is this thing called the internet right? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_expensive_video_games_to_develop

Wow, that's a very interesting list!

Sadly I have only played Number 10 and below. Also, wow, 200 million for marketing for CoD:MW2, that's ridiculous!

Nice to see Star Citizen is already up to #6, with no finished product.

Friend and I at work were monitoring the ship sale page. The $2,700 capital ship was sold out by the time we pulled it up. Then at some point I refreshed and they had added another one to the page. 1 minute later it was gone.


Well, these ships certainly look gorgeous, but what the hell is wrong with humanity, buying virtual ships for $2700 in a game that doesn't even exist yet? Arrgh!

I could maybe excuse it if the game was already out, but buying that shit literally encourages them to NOT release Star Citizen, and instead just keep making more and more outrageously priced virtual ships for people to buy.

Any one of those big ships could be a basis for an entire game. The scope of Star Citizen is just laughable at this point.

Those free skates are neat. I think I'll get some cause I have a sudden urge to break my wrists and crack my head open.

Free Skates? More like Fatal Head Trauma Skates...very impressive balance and coordination on display by that kid.

Color me impressed and envious.

Ah, Britain. People forget their tendency to 1984 the fuck out of their people. They've had cameras pretty much everywhere public or semi-public for decades. I'm sure the pro-Bexit voters were too ignorant or "well I'm not the one they are looking for"-ish to care.

Really, REALLY hope they tone down the voice chatter. The voice acting isn't exactly great, but I could deal with hearing one of those lines every few minutes. But every 10 seconds? Ugh. I was done with it after a minute.

Looks like they nailed the environments though. I'm probably gonna get killed from just standing around admiring the architecture too much.

According to posts on the Steam forums (Reposting various Twitter links from the developers) that is a bug, the AI players will not be talking that much in the live game.

I can't bring myself to post links to Twitter though, sorry.

News Comments > Breach & Clear: DEADline Rebirth Released

I was debating getting it or the original a couple of times, can't really argue with 90% as it is now, not 75% on Steam.

I'll buy it, although the Steam comments pre-this current patch are pretty harsh.

*EDIT* Yeah, appears to be a Steam sale bug, the Package deal is $4.49 for both games, and that's 85% off. Separately you pay $3.48 for both.

I encountered a house centipede in the bathtub for the first time about a month ago. Scared the crap out of me since they're uncommon in this part of California and the most exotic bug I'm used to seeing is a spider. From what I can gather, this variety is completely harmless to humans, but he got sprayed down the drain before I was willing to test that out.

Aww, that poor guy, he was probably feasting on small insects and fell into the tub. Not interested in you in the least. Now, of course... he will have Vengeance.

Okay, played a couple rounds as the Specialist... reasonably interesting Make Your Own Class option, basically.

Perks urge you towards small gun or large gun focus, heals(grenades) or more damage from grenades, etc. Seems like it'll be the most enjoyable class for me personally on pubs.

As it should be, all the other classes will outdamage the Specialist with their on Perk weapons. Good choices all around by Tripwire.

Hopefully they can work the Martial Artist back into the game at some point, I was really looking forward to flying around, jump kicking Zeds in the face, uppercutting heads off, etc.

Seriously? your going to whine about 30 dollars? 60 I could see , but not when its 30 dollars.

Well, it's not the price, it's the principle. And Games Workshop seems to be doing a full court press lately with Warhammer/Warhammer 40k games... I pre-ordered Gothic Armada, because it looked cool, and it was only $30, and it turns out, that game is pretty damned boring after the first hour or so, at least to me. Woohoo, I have like 4 cruisers, a ton of support ships... but I can never use more than 300 points worth? What!?!? I wanted more Homeworldish than skirmish/multiplayer, I think. My bad for not doing enough research.

When it comes to games I think I still have a bit of a college student mentality too, although my income has increased significantly since then, just now I have way less time to actually play.

Coin flip time.

I watched most of the video, but trying to avoid spoilers... I'm tempted to preorder this now, dammit! Left 4 Dead/Killing Floor style gameplay, with Rainbow Sixish style AI squad ordering? I'd start throwing money at the screen if I wasn't apprehensive about getting burned on yet another pre-order.

Curses.

I was bitten by a spider at night while sleeping the wound was circular blue and black. So I was no threat to it, but it attacked anyway. Hard to believe anyone would complain about killing poisonous spiders, who would easily kill his wife and children.

Now I'm more scared of you guys! Flamethrower

You were no threat...until you started slowly rolling over onto it, making horrible, deafening noises out of your gaping maw! That spider is an Arachnid Hero!

I wonder if it was actually a spider, and not some other horrible small creature... lurking, even now, in the shadows of your room?

Good luck, sleep tight!

Looks good, although the ammo counts seem so damned low!

What Arch discount are you talking about? I'm showing $33.99 on Steam, for pre-order.

Further information from Link on Videosift

Not necessarily that bear and dog, but one of the dogs was killed by one of nine bears near that area. That dog's owner was interfering and feeding the polar bears(not the dog!), which is a major crime apparently.

Since people are discussing animal cruelty videos, thought I'd put that link in here. Don't mess with wild animals! If a wild animal is threatening you, call a professional.

Whoa, finally!

Pretty much the same thought for me, theglaze.

At various points this game was a bit rough, or guns were off, etc.

I'll check it out tonight.
