So is this basically Just Cause 3 with worse controls?

No, how about all your nay Sayers play the game first before bashing the game. You all are talking out of your asses without any play time. Seriously!!

I played the open beta, which is when I formulated 'my' opinion.

I would have seriously considered this game if they would have developed it with the option of 1st person or 3rd person la FO3/FO4 where you can either hit a button or scroll to/from 1st person mode. IMO the snapping into 1st person only when you aim is kina lame.

Oh well....

Exactly why I'm skipping this one, I can't stand this style.

same here - and it doesnt even seem like it would have been much more work for them, since the indoor areas already lack any sort of forethought or optimization in terms of camera effectiveness in 3rd person.. in fact its outright clumsy and inept

id imagine it has more to do with the GTA style they wanted to portray, and the customizeable characters, etc... in other words, mostly arbitrary and decorative or even slavish to being "on trend", rather than coming from the viewpoint of just creating fun gameplay

^^^^^^^^^This exactly. I couldn't have thought/said it better. ;-)

I like Steam. Talk to the hand.

I rest my case.

Yup, Steam has become the default platform for gaming (at least for me), and if I could completely do away with Origin and UPlay, I would.

Offer a first person perspective (which automatically changes to third person when you ride a bike or use any other vehicle), and I will definitely be all over this. Right now, with third person perspective only, I will pass.

I'm with you on that one.

Or you can sit in the comfort of your home and watch the free 1080p stream without the hassle of LA traffic and gamer body funk. Wacko

Not the same, I used to attended a lot in the late 90's to mid 2008

Ill be trying to get in this year too. Its a lot of fun to talk with the devs and see the games and play them.

I fucking hate crowds and lineups. Like a buddy of mine always used to say, "I wouldn't line up to meet God." I will never understand why people want to pay money to stand in lines and deal with crowds.

You must be a real riot at parties eh?

Grin.....reminds of Francis from L42; "Crowds, I hate crowds".

North of $1K for a CPU?

I am still successfully running my $329.00 i7-2600K with my third video card upgrade (GTX580-SLI > GTX-780Ti > GTX1080SC) and my system can handle any game maxed out that I throw at it.

Thanks to consoles being the platform that is pushing the envelope in lieu of the PC.

And to enhance your textures even more for FO4, check this texture mod out. I've tested both the 2K (Performance Version) and the 4K versions, and from what I experienced the 4K is overkill and not even worth the performance hit, as the 2K is more than enough.

Do you run with both this texture pack and the official hi-res one, or do both packs cover many of the same textures?

Right now I am, but still experimenting with having the texture mod installed too to determine how much of a difference it makes. I haven't figured out how much overlap there is yet, but I do like the texture diffuse mapping the mod has. The images on the mod page don't give it justice.

This is a cool addition, I appreciate Bethesda releasing this. I'll probably give FO4 another play-through soon, with DLC and more mature mods than my first one so this will be nice - if my 1070 can handle it. If not, it's always good to see boundaries being pushed.

The game definitely looks clearer/crisper.

Anyone planning on another play through, but want a more challenging experience where you don't have an over abundance of supplies by/before level 30 (on survival), and the rest of the game is a cakewalk, then you need to check out the Horizon Mod . It's almost like the FO3-FWE mod for FO4. I am several hours in and the game feels like a true 'survival' game. The mod's description page does it no justice. The mod author is very active with the mod and community. Definitely a must for subsequent play throughs.

And to enhance your textures even more for FO4, check this texture mod out. I've tested both the 2K (Performance Version) and the 4K versions, and from what I experienced the 4K is overkill and not even worth the performance hit, as the 2K is more than enough.

The early feedback on the game is critical, and the release is followed by this post outlining plans to update the user experience with improvements in the near future. Word is, "Please stay with us - this is definitely not the end of our work on Husk." Here's a bit on the game:

Then it is pretty much an Alpha release? Stay with you? How about you come back when it is finished.

The Patriots are consistently good, but I would not underestimate the Falcons.

Regardless, I think it is going to be a really good game due to the fact that the Patriots were bumped out of the playoffs last season (2015), and this is the first time the Falcons have finally made it through the playoffs into the SuperBowl, which is the first time since 1999 where they lost against the Denver Broncos.

So, I think the Falcons have more the prove. But, time will have to tell......
