Yeah looks like it could be fun (it's a proper SP campaign this time, right?), but those graphics are total Call-of-Duty-style last generation. Why you need a 1080 to run that at 4k is beyond me...


Game looks great, looks pretty fun too. As for the 1080 requirement, isn't this still some weird version of the Source engine? It's way past its initial design at this point, probably very inefficient compared to whatever version of engine DICE is using on Battlefield 1, for example.

Of course, they are never going to use a new engine for Titanfall or CoD until people stop buying the game... catch 22.

News Comments > Another Wolfenstein Sequel Hint
4. Re: Another Wolfenstein Sequel Hint Oct 19, 2016, 21:01 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Well, I'm a bit on the fence. I'll most likely get another Wolfenstein game and play it through, but it feels like we just had the Old Blood not too long ago?

Anyway, Battlefield 1, Shadow Warrior 2, Space Hulk: Deathwing. I may be FPSed out by the time a Wolf game hits in a year or so.

Both reviewers for Battlefield 1 say it's as good or better than Bad Company 2...you have my attention Dice!

...BC2 was pretty good, but seriously, why do so many people think it was better than BF1942? Mind boggling!

Opinions will differ, of course.

I'm salty due to having to wait several more days than any Origin Pre-Order for BF1, because I went cheap and bought it on GreenManGaming.

That would be hilarious!

I assume they aren't that trollish though.

I see what you mean but there is nothing about this that prevents sharing. There isn't a device limit so at worst it makes sharing a process that the sharer has to be involved in for 1 or 2 extra steps that take a grand total of 30 seconds before the sharee can be ready to roll.

If anything, all this does is make sure you are sharing with whom you mean to be sharing.

Well, true, I guess it's not that bad, just annoying.

I find two-step authentication like this a hassle usually, I'm leaning towards disabling it, at this point.

Shadow Warrior 2 is pretty damned good.

Now, Space Hulk:Deathwing needs to turn out really well, so I can justify the risk of preordering it in a few weeks.

Hrm, Origin Preorders unlock on the 17th, unfortunately I bought cheap on GMG, and they might not send out keys until the 21st.

Red Dead Redemption on PC would be great, seems like it's been too long for them to bother though.

I actually bought RDR for PS3, got to Mexico before I stopped playing, gamepad aiming is just too aggravating for me.

This is interesting, but at least it's optional(for the moment).

The whole point of gog.com was to be DRM free. People associate DRM free with, strangely enough, sharing.

I wonder what percentage of gog accounts are actively shared? Probably a fairly high amount, CD ProjektRED.

I don't care what anybody says, I'm still looking forward to buying this game when it finally comes out and goes on sale, in maybe 2025 or so.

It didn't take long for the hackers to crack BF1

Oh they were around in the beta. What I don't understand is the guy going 0-10 against that player, and not leaving the server. for every server with a hacker on it, there's 100 that don't. It's just a reality of gaming. Some people have no scruples.

For the youtube fame/$

He's a writer for PCGamer, look at the youtube page, there is a link to the article about cheats in BF1 and the beta.

Slick you were saying something about them completely dropping Punkbuster, so it's just Fairfight now? Ugh this is going to be painful at times, especially with whatever crazy server policy EA has, aka less active admins.

News Comments > Shadow Warrior 2 Released
19. Re: Shadow Warrior 2 Released Oct 14, 2016, 16:08 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I've got about 10-12 hours into it now, and it feels like a superior version of Borderlands in a lot of ways. Better gun mechanics, better damage model, better melee model by far, better powers by far, better enemy AI, better graphics/sound.

No vehicles(yet) and smaller maps of course.

Only issue I see so far is I probably won't even come close to finishing it before BF1 comes out in a week or so.

I am vehemently against the EA Access nonsense, especially since it's just 10 hours and then your money is effectively wasted.

However, each to his own, please keep beta testing BF1 before I get in there in a week!

In the meantime, I've been playing Shadow Warrior 2... it's pretty great, and the more I play, the more it seems like a better version of Borderlands basically. Better weapon and skill variation, better movement by far, better graphics/sound, but of course smaller maps.

News Comments > Shadow Warrior 2 Released
14. Re: Shadow Warrior 2 Released Oct 13, 2016, 21:38 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
The game is fun, but it's definitely more ARPGish than straight up FPS, in terms of the sheer amount of loot drops, mob types(elites, etc.) and configurable weapons and skills.

I don't find the visual clutter to be an issue, although to be fair I turned off Lens Flares and all that sort of shit. I can't remember if there was Film Grain in there also at one point, but the game looks extremely sharp at 2560x1440, GTX 1070, 144hz monitor.

Also, the original voice actor is like 76 or something now, it wasn't really feasible to bring him back.

Pfft... don't chicken out, preorder right now, and experience all the bugs from day 1 like a real man!

I will probably pre-order, even knowing the hell it'll probably be for the first month as an Obsidian product.

6. Re: Shadow Warrior 2 Released Oct 13, 2016, 16:24 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I bought this last night, so far it's awesome. Controls are near perfect, weapons seem interesting, although melee >> ranged so far, the engine seems excellent, sound and video are great, running 2560x1440p at max settings looks awesome and seems to be staying near 144fps(?? can't find fps display) constantly with my new comp.

However, I have run into either a bug or some poorly handled quest portion, I am 8.0% through the game, and have just basically opened up the main home 'town,' but cannot progress past a conversation with the Smith. You would think you would get an option to go out into the world to handle the [No Spoiler] major problem that has arisen, but all you can do is tell him "I will come back later."

Can't leave the town! I'll look around on the forums, I may be missing something that'll seem painfully obvious.

Upgrades and Weapons seem pretty interesting, add-ons to modify powers and armor as well. Plenty of percentage modifiers along with elemental damage converters for the weapons. All add-ons seem to be able to be removed with no problem, no worries about 'wasting' an add-on on the 'wrong' weapon, etc.

I'm liking it a lot so far.

*EDIT* Figured it out, Quest interface requires double clicks, and initiates a cut scene usually. Problem for me was, the quest description was a couple of sentences, thought it was the character's dialgoue.

Also, need to weed through my loot, tons of Add-ons now.
