Indeed, though I forgot to play it.. so maybe this time! Haha. Game's feeling pretty "blah" nowadays though, even after the last (awesome) set rebalance patch. Diablo 4 or bust!

Not gonna dispute that there are cheaters, but my group regularly gets to the top 3, if not wins (squads) and we haven't seen an obvious cheater since Miramar came out. Maybe different in solos though, I suppose. Used to be more common before the more recent major patches. Replays REALLY help dispute questionable deaths.

Bring on the TenCent integration for China...

News Comments > Escape from Tarkov Testing Plans
3. Re: Escape from Tarkov Testing Plans Dec 29, 2017, 02:36 Rhett
 
I've had it since pre-alpha.. it doesn't seem like it's changed a ton.

It's VERY hardcore, and severely punishing/unforgiving.

Taking a serious loadout or modifying a weapon with multiple attachments requires a lot of specific weapon modding/parts (rails etc). Even a pistol is highly lethal. Per-limb damage/injury system. Scroll wheel to change your movement speed (affecting sound). Very easy to lose everything that you take with you in a match as well (plus you can't just quit a match, you have to extract, or you lose it all).

Not for the faint of heart. It's cool, it's scary and it's intense. Also server issues, and I'm also having framerate stability issues, but it's very playable.

I'd say you have to be serious and enthusiastic about military simulators as well as something like DayZ. I might have one extra 7-day code to give out, but I'll have to check with my friends first.

Adjusted replay system so that players can only view game replays from 3 minutes after death.
This is to prevent sharing opponent’s positions to surviving teammates immediately after death.

Uh, this is only in duo and team matches right? Kinda shit in solo play if that's not the case.

Wait, what? They allowed Kill Cam in team games?! That is a dead obvious thing NOT to do, these developers are facepalm.

I hope you're right though, I enjoy watching it in solo games in order to A. See what went wrong, or B. Admire my opponent outplaying me.

The replays are the only thing that was limited, no telling if the 3 minute thing applies to solo.. but that shouldn't matter at all. Death cam (AKA Kill cam) is available instantly in solo, and only available in Duos/Squads when EVERYBODY on the team dies, and not before..

Despite the net code and various little things, gotta give them credit for fixing a lot of players' grievances in a very timely fashion. The devs are clearly not the best, but they've accomplished a lot in the last 6 months. Massive performance gains (~100% increased FPS for me), vaulting, a new map, improved UI, death cams, and replays... The replay feature alone is just fantastic.

Yeah, I mean... Blizzard's loot boxes are by far the least offensive. Heroes of the Storm even does it well.

I log in to OW just to get the free ones for each event. Got a legendary cash pile at least, and several purple skins from the event.

The endgame and loot variety is not fun though. Leveling 1-30 was the most fun in the game.

But, they've continued working on it and putting out updates despite the small player base, so kudos I guess. There will be a #2 for sure, they've been working so hard to make it work.

Access is pretty nice, for sure. I think it was a very smart move on their part.

I wonder if UPlay will follow with a sale.

16. Re: PUBG Launches Dec 21, 2017, 16:01 Rhett
 
It's definitely weird.. it's so popular because there's nothing else like it (besides Fortnite, which has its own issues.. mostly being a cartoony mess - and the ARMA 3 mod), yet people put up with some pretty insane issues.

I will say I haven't seen an obvious cheater in the past week, which is a plus. Was super common before. Probably just lucky.

Will be even better when the Chinese are segregated instead of lagging around in other servers.

News Comments > New NVIDIA GeForce Drivers
3. Re: Morning Tech Bits Dec 21, 2017, 04:56 Rhett
 
Er... I have a 970 and an FX 6300 and I get at minimum 60 FPS since the last several patches (often closer to 75 average, even in the biggest towns, capping at 100ish). On both maps. 1080p, 100% screen scale (120 makes no difference though). So don't need a 1060...

Maybe if you had worse than a 9 series? Definitely could see needing a 10 series if you go beyond 1080p though.

Personally got maybe 5 FPS out of these drivers, YMMV. Ran well before them.

I figure we won't see a GOTY pack until WH3 comes out (it's supposed to be a trilogy IIRC). So hold onto your wallets!

I also tried getting into TWH2 (loved TWH 1) but the new map and minor changes just totally floored me for some reason. I think the jungle was too cheery for me, for the setting.

Huh, cool that it's still alive. I actually really liked WD1. Besides gameplay improvements, WD2 is just a massive cringefest though.

WoC, AC4 and WD1 for free, if you haven't played them... that's quite a steal!

I mean.. compared to Ubisoft's complete butchering of Ghost Recon Wildlands and its cosmetic/extra DLC... ugh. $15 for A GUN. A single gun. $20 to look like The Predator. WTF.

I've got a code with my new video card, I don't want to activate it because I'm not interested in that game. Suggestions? I know if I sell/trade the person needs to have a 1080 or 1080 Ti.

I used to do all my code dealings on www.cheapassgamer.com - I've personally never been scammed, as usually the highest "rep" person goes first. Maybe you can trade it for another game that requires one of those cards?

Yeah... PU has made some dumb statements, but the game became an overnight worldwide sensation, so I'm sure a lot of people with overnight success would make an ass of themselves at one point.

All we should care about is if the game is improving, and it is (according to the test server) - though I do hope the rubberbanding and tick rate are resolved. FPS has gone through the roof lately, after starting out terribly.

Yeah.. I mean, I've heard so many bad things, and the community looks incredibly toxic... like up in the LoL levels. This also looks console-shooter-esque arcadey. At least PUBG has ARMA roots and at least a semblance of realism.

Really strange. Why not make it 4v1? And a permanent game mode. Is the Predator a player or an AI boss?

It's an SP/co-op event, so it will be an AI. Most likely you'll head around the map finding clues about it or investigating it, and have to battle it. Probably like the Yeti thing they had, where you track down a sniper in the snow... but that was pretty anticlimactic.

This looks cool though. Sucks it's a limited time event.

To be fair it does seem like a cool and unique mode, but yeah, I agree. The playerbase isn't sticking (probably because it came out so late, and it's a PVE game...)

I know there's a PVE patch coming soon, no word on contents however.
