News Comments > The Division 2 Episode 2 Pentagon: The Last Castle Released
3. Re: Retro Dust II Map Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Counter-Strike Oct 15, 2019, 23:51 Rhett
 
It was definitely really fun, have revisited a couple times now.. but they keep putting out more crappy raid content with poor in-game group finding capability, and now the pentagon DLC isn't even what people were hoping for (Underground, at the least).

I just want Survival and Underground back! Not more story missions or raids.

I guess they're more keen on telling a story than long-term content. :/

I sincerely hope they pick it back up themselves, because it sounded okay in concept but I didn't really trust the developer. I guess they didn't either...

Very glad they appear to be keeping their high standards.

Looks okay, but fuck off with the one year exclusivity on part of the mode!

Haven't played since Warmind and Osiris, and never got into raiding (lack of chat, group finder, etc)... I'm curious to try it again.

1. Re: Evening Patches Sep 27, 2019, 20:23 Rhett
 
Love The Surge 2 (combat anyway), but holy hell either this engine, or their QA for said engine, are absolutely horrible. Gameplay's great, but going below at least 60 FPS just makes me hate playing it. Performance is all over the place, and artifacting shows up randomly here and there.

Still play it regularly with friends, with it being one of their favorite games. Modding has revitalized the game considerably.

Not sure how I feel about the map, since there's still some big issues (like vehicles - which are pretty damn broken on a lot of servers)... but hopefully this will come alongside a patch.

News Comments > Modern Warfare Spec Ops Survival Mode Exclusive to PS4 Until October 2020
3. Re: Huh? Sep 24, 2019, 20:40 Rhett
 
It looks that there's at least two parts to this mode. One is missions that tie in with the campaign, and the other looks to be (speculation based on some footage I saw) a wave-based survival mode sorta akin to MW3. It's that latter mode that seems to be a 1-year exclusive.

People are quite pissed, rightfully so, and some are cancelling their orders. Full price without all of the game.

There's been no mention (yet?) of a BR mode.

I do not trust 2K, Randy or Epic. Also, Epic guarantees X sales with their bribery, so who knows how many of those are included?

I have no doubts many fans did buy it regardless of platform (especially on console, where it seems to be most popular), plus there's cross-platform now right? I sincerely hope Gearbox at least fixes all the bugs/serious issues I've heard about, because it does look decent.

It doesn't matter how much Epic is paying it matters if they - devs - would have sold more without the exclusive. Meh, whatevs, 10 mil for a game to sit around for a year while they polish it and sell the 'finished' version everywhere else for cheaper later on? I'm fine with that as Epic seems to be fine with wasting its money.

There is that but there is also the fact byt the time it hits Steam (at least I) how many will actually give a shit about the game? I already care little about Metro anymore.

Also I would not be surprised if these dumb asses try and sell it on steam for $60 because it is "new". They did this shit with console games when they came to PC (even years) after they were on console.

I'm expecting this too (full price). There's been practically zero sales, or very meager sales, on ANYTHING related to EGS since they started doing this exclusivity shit. Preorder sales/GMG and such. So I can't expect them to not try to pull that, depending on the publisher.

But yeah, people are probably not going to care by then, or just wait for fully patched, DLC-complete games at a discount at that point.

Been in all but the first OTT so far, and the last beta was the most disappointing... I really hope this one's a lot more polished.

It had some issues, but was more polished the the first tech text. There is a much larger learning curve to the game then Wildlands. Too many times I was in a group that wanted to run and gun in BReakpoint and it turned into a cluster fuck. If you want to survive you need to recon, take things slow, do the prep work and act like Ghosts.

I got about 30 seconds into that video and turned it off. That's what will get ya killed every damn time.

Haha, for sure. My problems were that the UI and character movement felt really, really off. And a ton of bugs, like not being able to toggle FPP/TPP on weapons randomly, or tripping and dying on nothing/vaulting and dying for no reason. Stuff I didn't recall happening in the OTT2. Still sorta looking forward to it, but really surprised they put that last beta out with so many flagrant problems.

I would chalk it up to being beta, but Ubisoft treats the preorder beta (last one) and the open beta like demos more than anything.

News Comments > New Steam Library Beta

I think it looks great, and condenses a lot of useful information. Could run better, but it's beta and they definitely put polish on everything.

Not only that, but I imagine that people will still be able to make custom UIs? I use one (mostly just an xml edit IIRC) to disable curators and streams, currently.

I could definitely see them having an option to use the old look, as well.

Hm, BL3 makes (great) use of Epic's Unreal Engine, as do many other games. If it ever does release on Steam, will still launch through the EGS launcher.

As far as I'm hearing, you don't even need or want EGS running while playing the game currently, or with any other game? Maybe Fortnite and Dauntless, but otherwise I've seen a few reports of people who, for example, refunded different games (BL3 included) and were still able to play without EGS. Or, closing EGS and the game running even better, oddly enough.

I highly doubt it'd use EGS in addition, as it's not made by Epic. UPlay is the only real launcher I can recall that does the double-launcher garbage, but it's tolerable. They do make their own games though...

Are you having any UI issues on PC?

It does look on the decent side, assuming DRM and performance issues are either mistaken or easily fixed.

I would love to play it, but fuck everything about Epic.

It looks phenomenal!

I found this awesome trailer playing scenes side by side from the TV show to scenes that we've caught from a trailer, but it looks like they're trying to resemble the show in a lot of ways.

Great game, extremely polished. I've personally had very few issues outside of server issues, which have been pretty much taken care of. Beautiful, runs amazingly well, has an excellent benchmark built in.

Only thing that sucks is there's not many skins or characters atm, not sure why they held so much back.

Best $2 I've spent in years!

Yeah, this was a very disappointing test. They usually use this as their flagship "please buy this after trying it!" demo phase, for every game they do this with. Especially The Division, but they did this for Wildlands too, I believe.

This beta is in poor shape, lots of bugs and issues that weren't as big of a problem previously. I'm disappointed, as I was really looking forward to it after the last tech test. :/
