Is the PS4 that much better of a console or is Andromeda intentionally gimped on the xbone?

The former. The PS4 has like 30% (IIRC) more graphics oomph than the hilariously underpowered xbone.
thanks,
wtf was microsoft thinking, oh nvrmnd

What the fuck were either one of them thinking going with AMD? It's impacting all of us because now all games are built for underpowered machines, so we're not really able to push our PCs' capabilities, and the games look and play like shit.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Is 30fps 1080p On PS4, 900p On Xbox One, 60fps/4K on PC Headbang

Don't count on it. This is a console title. It will probably be framerate capped and be shittily optimized on PC.

But hey, lol consoles, right?

Q: What are the support resolutions and frame rates?

A:
4K50/60
4K100/120
5K50/60
5K100/120
8K50/60
8K100/120
10K50/60
10K100/120

As if it weren't already hard to find a cable that handles 4k and 4:4:4 chroma, now good luck finding a decent, non-counterfeit one that handles 10k@120 for less than the money gouging price of two Titan XPs. And even then, there's no guarantee it will work.

$40 to have a channel guide? Are you kidding? My TV does this automatically with my $20 antenna. This just seems like a dumbed down version to appeal to idiot millennials.

The ME3 ending sucked. Did it make the whole game/series complete garbage? No. But it certainly had a big negative impact, and rightfully so.

The funny thing is that ME was pretty much a ripoff of the TV show Babylon 5 right from the beginning and then they did such a worse ending!

Curious response. I'm interested to know in what ways it's like B5, one of the best sci-fi shows ever created.

Disclaimer: I did not play ME2 or 3.

That's disappointing. I'm planning to be build a VR capable system next year, and I want to get gen 2 VR, the new and improved, rather than the "early access" version
Wait till the year after next, Ryzen will have put intel out of business and gen 2.5 vr will be available for under $217. /s /lol

Glad you put the /s in there. When I read the bit about Ryzen I was preparing a retort in my mind for you. Then I finished reading your comment. XD

How the hell are these comments leaning so much toward the (boring-who-really-gives-a-shit-seriously) second link and not the first? I was truly expecting the opposite. Blues crew, you've sorely disappointed me. Shame and lament upon you.

I'm always interested in space sims, but the X series are too much like Eve and Elite. Big, but empty and boring with a focus on numbers rather than gameplay. I'm more of a Freelancer guy. Actually, Freelancer is the only good space sim I've played... Other than the original X-wing...

So you've never played Homeworld? I guess that's not really a "space sim" per se...

I am happy with my way overpowered gold psu. Fan never comes on (except for a spinup during startup) making it basically silent.
California could just ban AMD CPUs and GPUs instead, problem solved.

Except, AMD holds, what, 3% market share? XD

really wish I could check it out. sadly volvo decided that all gtx970 owners (and some others as well) would also receive a complementary reduction of 50fps. gg

Got a link to this?

And holy fucking shit. This update is HUUUUUUGE! Hope to get to try it out soon but at the moment, I'm busy making money in GTA 5 selling duped, modded cars, 34 at a time, in preparation for the next update...

Mad Max RW wrote on Dec 12, 2016, 11:48:
Game still needs at least a year of patching and several Foundation sized free expansions before I'd recommend at any price. Every gameplay feature is so basic and poorly implemented. Flying, shooting, collecting resources, all were done so much better in other games more than a decade ago. The one saving grace, if they chose to embrace it, is the struggling modding community. It came on strong then burned out very quickly. Open the game up some more and invite the fans in then this could be something to talk about. Right now it's a waste of a good music soundtrack.

You kids these days just can't appreciate the value of a tech demo...

I really need to try and play this game some time. The only MOBA to hook me so far has been Heroes of the Storm.

It's EXTREMELY deep and complex. It requires a serious time commitment. You're gonna be terribly frustrated at first. But once you start to get it, it's just about the most rewarding experience in gaming right now.

So, AMD finally admits their drivers were terrible? Now it's just their hardware? If their drivers don't suck anymore, they did when it was ATi, when they had decent and competitive hardware. Now it's reversed, AMD? Fun times.

You can't put a price on that!

Damn. I came here to say "how much is 25% off free?" but the first comment crushed all my hopes and dreams.

Is this game anywhere near as good as DOTA 2?

Nope.

It's very shallow and there's a distinct lack of big plays. Carries don't actually carry per se, and the card system is based around RNG - and which is full of boring passives and actives with stupidly long cooldowns. Did i also mention you have to select your cards before the match starts?

It also has a bunch of shared resources, and a super low XP and Card cap. Hero's also lack depth eg invoker has a higher skill ceiling and learning curve than all the hero's in paragon combined (i guess this may be due to the multi platform / console limitations).

Think of it more like a shooter hybrid with 'winions' (yes, we call them winions because they can take your towers and inhibitor [barracks] in seconds by themselves).

I've been playing it on and off for a few months and while it's definitely not bad, just don't go in expecting a game comparable to DOTA.

Still worth a shot though, it's free.

Thanks. Sounds like a grain or two of salt is in order.
