But hell if I do decide to get back into AC I might as well get into Syndicate first. I heard Unity was shit.

I'm playing Unity now and it's not shit. I guess it had a bunch of technical issues when it first came out and some people still have them, but it's running fine for me. It's a solid AC so far IMO. You're right that Syndicate is probably better, though, so pick it up if you're only going to get one. I'm planning on playing it next, then eventually Origins.

Looking forward to playing this once it's patched up and on sale. Still working on AC:Unity and will likely get Syndicate next.

Happy to see it's getting good reviews. I thought it looked good and I was planning on seeing it unless got terrible reviews. The first movie was kinda slow but I thought it was decent noir detective story set in an awesome setting which made it good overall IMO. I don't watch it that often so I'm not a huge fan, but I am a fan of sci-fi and think we need to get more good sci-fi movies (and less crappy action sci-fi movies).

Wow. More boring Valve news about selling other people's creative works. "Can't wait for the next Valve announcement" - says no one anymore.

Didn't Bethesda say they had the chance to make a GoT game and turned it down because they didn't want the story/IP restrictions and such? Maybe they changed their minds.

Why did they announce so early? Way too early...

Looked into it and apparently they announced early to gauge how excited people were about the idea. Source

I still don't see why people are so enamored with playerunknowns battlegrounds. Just another copycat from a multitude of other similar survival games. When all your opposition has to do is turn off some graphics details to see anyone hiding in the tall grass, you know it is another POS!
1. Game is in Early Access, the devs are aware of this issue plus many others.
2. Players buy games to have fun and players are buying this game.
3. see one

Mhh, World of Tanks has the same issue, play on Ultra low = you can see through walls (because they ain't rendering) and foliage stops displaying entirely after a distance, you think you sit in a bush with your tank? Other player sees you on the open field with no cover.

Broken by design

Ps.: NO idea whether that game will fix this issue, but it ain't a simple thing to fix ^^

Remove the lowest detail option and increase system requirements? Of course then you'd piss off the budget crowd, but even consoles require you to spend a few hundred bucks on hardware every few years. People need to get with the program.

Either make it available on Steam or frankly, STFU Bioware. I am not installing an entire second client just to play your games.

Right, let's force everyone on Steam so that they can jack up their prices once they have a complete monopoly. Despite their decent reputation, Valve is still just another corporation that exists solely to maximize profit for their owners/shareholders.

A year after release, I'm officially addicted to Stellaris. Playing as a Fanatic Purifier who can't engage in diplomacy definitely keeps things challenging. I'd recommend trying it if you already own the game but maybe thought it was too slow/boring.

If the series is really on hold (which seems likely), it's because it's not selling well, not because of the haters.

The game kinda quickly hits a point to where you run out of planets to colonise and points to build more frontier stations or whatever they're called. Then you kinda just sit back and do tech for a veeeeeeeeeeeeery long time, until you can do another small expansion or someone with 10X your fleet strength shows up and says they're going to kill you for no reason.

That's great info, do you think it would be fully fleshed out enough to not hit that stale point with another expansion? Or is this as good as it's going to get? I've been holding off on this purchase knowing what CK2 turned into.

I'm one of the guys who bought all the expansions. Even the ones that add content into the "end game" even though I've never gotten close to that point.

I don't want to give it a bad review b/c I feel there's a strong possibility I'm either playing it wrong, or just plain suck at it.

In the game I'm playing now I've colonised 4 worlds. 1 has to be in it's own section b/c you can only have 3 in your main section. So I don't directly control what that other sections build but I do get half it's resources. This is how the game stops an empire just rushing out and colonising everything.

But that's all the colonizable worlds in my space. There's some others in alien space but no others in the galaxy that I've discovered so far. So I can't build any more. I just sit there, and let my tech slowly get researched, and build my forces up to their cap and attack pirate bases. Eventually I'll get some terraforming and colonising tech that'll let me settle less optimal worlds.

I'm kinda struggling with what I should do next.

The core world limit can be increased through technologies and the Unity system. Also, certain governments and/or traits can increase it beyond 3 as well. Terraforming comes way later and is super-expensive so don't wait on that.

Good to see NieR:Automata on the list. I haven't picked it up yet, but I will eventually. It seems like a quality game that normally wouldn't have been brought to PC, so I'm happy that they are getting their due.

I've gotten over my initial puzzlement over their choice of Idris for Roland, but that trailer didn't leave me hopeful about the movie. The scene where he loads his revolvers by somehow catching the bullets in the revolvers' cylinders in midair just dripped of Hollywood action movie crap. I'm afraid they're turning The Dark Tower into The Fast and The Furious, Mid-World Edition.

Also, I was disappointed by what was shown of McConaughey. Flagg is a character that would benefit from his more eccentric performances, and they didn't indicate that that would be the direction he was taking. He just looks like your typical action movie bad guy. Oh well, wait and see i guess.

Shame on you have forgotten the face of your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

It kinda felt like I was watching a preview for higher-budget fantasy NBC TV series. I'll probably still go watch it if the reviews aren't terrible, but not hopeful about this production. I was looking for something more mysterious and epic.

The head-scratching decision to call this game "Prey" aside, it looks like it has the potential to be good. Waiting for reviews/Let's Plays.

Their insistence to call this game "Prey" reminds when MS insisted that the FPS game be called "Shadowrun" when, in fact, it was nothing like the original. Shadowrun, while a decent MP game, failed due to labeling a well loved IP something that should never have been. Unless Prey is something amazing, I predict its imminent failure as well.

Prey is a cool name and very few people are familiar with the original title, so why not use the same name again? They probably want to start a new franchise with an iconic name and why shouldn't they? Come up with another good name for this game's premise if it's so easy.

If they wanted to make another WW2 game, I think they should have done alternative history. Something like the Nazis are invading the US. Germany has been nuked, but only after they've established a strong foothold on the East Coast. Maybe throw the Japanese on the West Coast for good measure (obviously similar to the Man in the High Castle setting).

It seems like having some new settings and a fresh story within the same era would be more interesting than re-hashing the same WW2 setting over and over again. And to be clear I'm not talking about introducing science-fiction, the occult or supernatural elements. Same gameplay, same weapons, fresh story, fresh environments (think WW2 battles in various US landscapes/cities).

But maybe there are a lot of players out there who are too young to have already played a WW2 FPS and that's what they're marketing this towards.

It's not only AMD cards that are adversely affected - it's also older NVIDIA cards. Whenever NVIDIA wants a sales boost, they can add some new useless feature to Gameworks that runs great on their new cards, but poorly on AMD and their older cards. I wouldn't have a problem if all these features were optional, but it's my understanding that they aren't always.
