Ugh, are they just trying to kill the franchise or something? There are plenty of shitty "Hero Shooters," BR or otherwise, that I avoid as it is. Stop messing up Battlefield.

I am rereading the Dune series now, currently on Book 6 (Chapterhouse Dune). I'm even going to read the son's books 7 and 8, which I skipped the last time.
Before you read 7 & 8, I would suggest reading the prequels, it will helps complete the picture....

Specifically:
The Butlerian Jihad
The Machine Crusade
The Battle of Corrin

Outside the original novel which may be the greatest sci-fi novel ever written, books 5 & 6 are the best in the series, followed closely by 4.

Yeah, I started reading that prequel trilogy, finished the Butlerian Jihad, and had to stop. The writing is mediocre at best, and it feels like they could have compressed those three novels into maybe 1 novel. I get it, the AIs and pseudo AIs were pretty genocide-y, let's wrap it up.

I have 6, 7 and 8 to read or reread still, and I'm in the middle of Neal Stephenson's new novel, Termination Shock. Book 9 (the last novel, Leviathan Falls) of the Expanse also showed up at my house the other day, and that'll probably have precedence over finishing the Dune prequels as well. I may be dragging my feet for awhile on those, honestly.

Take everything from BF4, add more weapons and vehicles from BF2042, update the graphics a bit and add a few more maps and VIOLA, FUCKING MONEY!

Add in the fortification system from BFV, and you basically win Battlefield design.

Hopefully the Godfall Challenger edition has the full game? It is somewhat vague, it has bonuses listed, so one would assume it has the base game, but who knows.

It is not the full game. The story campaign has been completely removed. From what I've read, you get a boosted Level 50 character so you can try out the endgame content - and evidently they are hoping you'll like it enough to buy the full or deluxe versions of the game.

Copied from my post in another BF2042 thread above:

Alternatively, open up <Your Drive>:\Users\<Your User Name>\Documents\Battlefield 2042\settings\PROFSAVE_profile with notepad or some other text editor, and

Find and Remove these 10-12 lines that have:

GstKeyBinding.infantry.ConceptYaw

Save, and start BF2042. That way you don't lose ALL of your settings. My game seemed to autofill mouse for mouselook, so I didn't even have to reassign keys after that, it just worked finally in game.

None of these novels leads me to think a MMO Survival game makes any sense for Dune, but good luck, I guess.

RTS honestly makes the most sense(shout out to old school pre-C&C Dune RTS), either land based or orbital to planetary based, followed by MAYBE a FPS, at a few points in the storyline.

But the movie did really emphasize blade combat, so who knows.

I picked these up, with no real intention of ever playing them anytime soon. However next week, December 9th, Godfall (Challenger edition?) is going to be one of the freebies, I will definitely be installing that right away.

Hopefully the Godfall Challenger edition has the full game? It is somewhat vague, it has bonuses listed, so one would assume it has the base game, but who knows.

*Self Deleted*

Since the patch is out today, I won't bother posting possible bugs from yesterday. I'll download the patch and see what's up.

*EDIT* I guess they did break mouse look, can't turn left or right, but I can look up and down with the mouse. I'm tempted to delete the settings folder, but I have everything set up as I prefer, so I may just wait for them to patch the mouse issue.

The fact that companies have considered and implemented a block chain for a physical device fills me with dread. Imagine some server farm somewhere, just burning cycles to confirm that yes, that is indeed a Cyberpunk 2077 watch that you paid too much for, on your wrist.

Biggest problem is the XP Cap. You can't play with Bots or in Portal without a cap, even on servers with official rulesets.

I'll revisit this game in 6 months.

Yeah, I don't know what the fuck they are thinking with caps and other limitations in single player vs bots. I think there is also a cap vs kills for unlocks? Ridiculous, considering a lot of the upper unlocks are 800+ kills for a given weapon or vehicle. Hopefully they sort it out after they cut down on the straight XP farming servers in Portal, if that's what's bugging them.

Hrm, yeah, I guess I glanced at delisting, you're right, jacobvandy, they are leaving the servers up... that feels like a terrible mistake then; giving in to the DDOSers.

Cool, I am not nearly as hyped as I was before all of their development issues, but hopefully something fun to play still exists in this game. Hopefully they backed off from their weapon degradation fetish, but if not, as has been said below, mods.

Dammit, are they actually going to make me play more Dead Cells, to get to see the ending, and possibly conclude the story?!

Great game, I've beaten it a bunch of times now, but it really makes me wish it hadn't been a rogue-lite/whatever, and more of a traditional side scrolling action rpg. Starting from the first map every time they add something interesting got annoying a long time ago, and I hate having to look up charts online to see all the correct teleport paths or whatever.

Okay, feel free to hate BF2042. It's allowed. However, who the FUCK is buying Farming Simulator (Nth Generation), in such large numbers!? Is there a huge streaming following for those games? Are there just tens of millions of people around the world who want to literally do chores in a video game?

Consider my mind boggled.

Not that mysterious, I'm sure Chinese IP thieves have plenty of physical samples and have stolen quite a bit of assorted IP from GPU factories located in China, and are getting ready to just go out on their own. Didn't we just have a story about this happening, a few months ago, with another chip maker? ARM or somebody? Chinese executives and workers 'went rogue' from the global company and just stole the IP and factories and are running a new company now?
