I don't know, with 7 Days I feel like they take two steps forward and one step back. To me they've made a lot of advances in some things (particularly UI) but cater too much to the diehard crowd who wants everything in the game to be a massive grind. I revisited it again recently and couldn't get into it anymore, everything just takes way too long. We tried messing around with the settings to find a sweet spot but it just felt too grindy in a way that similar games I've played didn't.

This game struck a chord with me and I have enjoyed putting numerous hours (918hrs) into since Alpha 5. Along the way they have taken some steps backwards while testing the waters, but ended up removing/changing some of the things back for the better. Alpha 13 was no doubt an F'ing grind, where they tested the waters again, but have been improved with the release of A14.X. I’m curious if it was A13 that you felt it became a grind……

Eventually they ported the game to Unity 5.X, updated character models (textures and mocap), numerous other textures throughout, and refined the crafting menu nicely. Along the way though, they had to scale back on the crafting menu icon textures for crafting items due to memory headspace, but now I understand why.....for the console port. So another PC game had to be limited again due to consoles. Sigh…..

I like this developer and they are ‘very’ involved with the community, and still have a lot of faith in them. There are still a lot of cool features on the roadmap to beta and gold (power/lines, water lines, NPCs, quests, etc.). I would say they should have released along time ago if I hadn’t seen a lot of additions/improvements/implementations along the way, but the game continuously makes positive strides by a passionate developer.

If you check out some YouTube videos of early alpha releases (~1 – 9) and compare to videos of the current game, you can clearly see how nicely the game has matured along the way.

News Comments > DOOM Open Beta Next Week; DLC/Season Pass Plans
26. Re: DOOM Open Beta Next Week; DLC/Season Pass Plans Apr 7, 2016, 10:40 MajorD
 

Wow, this pretty much put the nail in the coffin for this DOOMed release! Could they be more ignorant of how bad this whole Season Pass/DLC is for the franchise, which is already on troubled waters?

But, I'm sure plenty of people will lap it up, and only encourage more marketing of this nature.

I may pick it up for single play (only) when it is in the bargain bin for $5.00, but then maybe I'll have forgotten about it by that time.

If it wasn't for Cutter and harlock, I'd have stopped visiting years ago - and one of them's been banned because you kept losing arguments with him.

Na, he just created another account. Meet rudra. Or was that /s as well?


Wasn't harlock Space Captain before getting banned? Not sure if he had another account name before Space Captain, but I'm sure he is tactfully lurking around here still. I think he may have hacked Cutter's account and is using that now.

My very first thought too. This company as a whole is so F'ing disjointed, it is sad.

Valve made $750 million last year. The math says 1.1 million isn't going to hurt them. For them it's like ordering a pizza, having it be delivered, and tipping the driver.

$1.1 million for each breach. So how many breaches were there? I guess it will be decided in Federal Court at a later hearing. /shrug

So 'maybe' they're starting to finally realize the franchise has progressively become stale and are looking for new ideas to keep the money machine oiled. So there's that, but it is pretty much just another CoD game.....

Glad they're making improvements to Edge, but still more work to do.

1) Enable Right-Click in favorites and sort as desired (name, date, etc) unless I am missing something.

2) Allow user to determine, on the fly, where to save a file you're downloading.

3) Bing plug-ins (right-click functions)

Yeah, same here. It is a bit more limiting, but worth it IMHO.

Wtf they aren't even beta anymore though? I have beta drivers turned off in GeForce Experience and these were an official release according to that program. Got your facts straight? Cause I'm confused... :\

nVidia had to declare them final drivers to force Geforce Experience to use them as an update for all people who - for good reasons, as we know - have turned off the beta driver updates but had installed the faulty final drivers.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up El Pit. Sorry Blue Puppyeyes

The post title should be 'More GeForce BETA Driver Issues'.

It's like people complaining about pre-alpha/alpha game they purchased. /shakes head, walks away....

Just keep Eidos-Montréal far, far away from having anything (consulting, etc.) to do with the development of the film.
