One cool thing is that if you're completely unsure whether you'll like it or not, it will have an early access 10 hour gametime trial 5 days before release (16th). But you'll need EA's Origin Access ($5/mo). Smart on their behalf, but not a complete shafting for players either. From what I can tell, you can play a limited portion of the campaign, or all of the multiplayer.

Also, these min/rec specs seem silly now... It's not like 1080p is the "staple" anymore, but it's still the majority, so are these recommended requirements for 1440p or 1080p? I'm guessing somewhere in the middle, since Frostbite is quite stable and optimized, but makes me wonder why they don't specify ideal settings for these specs.

Normally I jump on free weekend games, but this... Gag. Mostly negative reviews, too, on steam. They must have really fucked up. Are they even trying with these PC ports anymore?

And all of their changes from the closed beta were very minor, so minor they don't even go into details. Nothing too notable that people really wanted changed (like AI, vehicles), though Ghost difficulty got some tweaks at least.

Also, server issues! Woot woot.

Cool that it's free. TW:Warhammer has been getting hammered by people whining that there's too much paid DLC, when it's not like it's competitively necessary or anything. It's there if you want it.

It is fun, but man they dropped the ball on the servers... It wasn't bad at all in the betas, and I took all the moaning on forums as people with shitty routers/internet, but nope.. it drops you half the time, in the middle of a match...

Can't recommend it anymore, despite how awesome/fun it is. The servers are inexcusable. Nevermind the potential drophacking someone pointed out on Reddit.

Looks really cool. This topped GR:Wildlands in terms of hype (not that the GR:W beta really helped its case lol).

I don't even care about the story (never do usually, especially not sci fi), just looks fun.

Not sure why anyone would even be playing anymore on those old consoles, without the DLC. The DLC is what (barely) makes it worth playing... I imagine right now they're stuck with not many ways to make money either.

Heh, Montuyoc was technically in the last beta but locked.. Explored most of it, you get the high powered sniper rifle there as well.

Curious to see if anything changed from the closed beta, but I doubt it...

i doubt these things are actually "beta" in the traditional sense.. seems more like marketing than anything else, as in "limited time demo"... but you cant say that because its too obviously lame

Sadly so, and there probably won't be a huge difference, but maybe (at least at release). This game has a ton of potential, but I don't think it'll meet it. Just like The Division, until the sequel, probably.

Injustice 2 is now on everything but PC... yeesh.

looks terrible anyway. they can keep it

Certainly nothing I'd probably buy, but it's really cool to watch at least. Plus the "editions" with DLC out the ass.. bleh.

Erm... bitching aside, you can sign up for this and cancel it immediately, it won't end your trial. Very easy.

Battlefront is 52gb! And yet so hollow...

In before this becomes some kind of anti-cheat DRM in the future...

News Comments > For Honor Beta Concludes Today
4. Re: For Honor Beta Concludes Today Feb 12, 2017, 13:05 Rhett
 
Really enjoyed it, was hyped, wanted to get the gold edition etc, but this second beta just... I dunno, my hype died I guess? I really had a lot of fun, but I got 20-30 hours out of the betas and I think I'm... good? So.. thanks Ubisoft! haha.

Some friends feel shitty at the game and don't seem incredibly interested in practicing (which leads to lack of interest in the game), and the lack of FFA/3 player modes killed it for us too. Played tons of Brawl, won probably 9/10th of the matches I played in this beta which was awesome. Poor new beta players...

It is really fun though.

I don't have a facebook (or ANY other social media), or I don't use it.. I wonder what they'd do, then? Am I gonna be put on a list? heh.

This seems so asinine all around.

News Comments > Ghost Recon Wildlands System Specs
17. Re: Ghost Recon Wildlands System Specs Feb 9, 2017, 13:01 Rhett
 
nVidia didn't put out drivers specifically for the game, but the newest drivers as of the beta being up definitely fixed a few problems and improved performance for both me and my friend. Don't normally update unless there's a glaring issue.

I just hope it really polishes up, or the beta was a much older build. It didn't feel refined enough.

Certainly just on the cusp of greatness though. AI, sound (gun shots sound weak), AI routine changes but the placement doesn't change much. Attack helicopters ("max" wanted level with Unidad) are pretty dumb, too. Just like GTA, repeatedly sends two choppers at you, and extremely hard to get out of that without dying.

If the beta's any indication, 1440p is not stable at all, even with top end hardware. I was playing smoothly at 40-60 FPS at 1080p with an FX-6350 and a GTX 970, myself.

Yeah the P2P is worrysome, but in the hours and hours I put into the beta, it wasn't a problem. Even got paired up with two guys, one in Indiana, one in Mexico (me being in NC), and despite the guy in Mexico having a high ping ("red bars"), the fights were smooth. I have no idea what kind of technology they're using, but they seem confident in it. The game also keeps things as steady as possible. You will get anything you would have earned from the match, afterwards, if it doesn't just replace any dropped players with bots.

Can't deny their track record, for sure. Ghost Recon REALLY needs some work. I was so much more hyped for GR than For Honor, but now it's done a complete 180 in terms of interest. FH seems really polished IMO.

I personally played with a 360 controller, but my friends all played KB/M and held their own.. Seemed clunky to me, but guess we'll see. Moving the mouse like an analogue stick (literally) is so weird.

Again, though, open beta this weekend! It's gonna have a good portion of all the content in the full game. Probably a good representation, especially the servers.
