News Comments > The Division Patch & Expansion Tomorrow

Despite the game not living up to all of its potential, it doesn't deserve to be review-bombed by all those whiny little dickbags. They're the same self-entitled children who spam comments on Ubisoft's site when they posted patch notes about balance changes, going on and on about how a 10% reduction in damage rating on the two most over-used guns in the whole game (SMGs with more damage per hit than assault rifles) is enough to push them into throwing away dozens or even hundreds of hours of play time and finally quitting the game for good.

Grabbed DOOM myself, through the third level so far.. Taking my time and exploring (I NEVER made it under par in the old games, lol) and it's pretty awesome!

Is it the actual dev team working on it again? Last I heard, they had moved on and allowed some community modders to start making official updates.

Traditional headphones/earbuds are too cheap, what they really want is to sell you wireless ones for 3-5x the cost. What are you gonna do, look like a loser with your head tethered to the device?

Ads are the reason I refuse to use Hulu... I know I've moaned about it before, but Netflix shoving video ads for their own content down your throat is annoying enough already!

PS is a company? Someone tell Sony.

I've seen Sony Interactive Entertainment officially referred to as PlayStation, the entity, before. Here's their headquarters: https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/scea-sanmateocampus-us-16dec15

Yay, so the AI will just run around pillaging even more sh*t now.

How fun!


If you leave your territory undefended, then yeah, it is as it should be... This looks like a fantastic change to me!

Studio head on Evolve, 2014: “For us this is a big deal, this is our proving ground. We are not just Valve’s bitch. I feel for the past 20 years we’ve been having to prove ourselves over and over. So here we are again, trying to prove ourselves.”

I did read a couple days ago about how they're now requiring you own FO4 on PC and link your Steam account to prove it before you can upload to Bethesda.net. So you put a halt to a lot of the smash and grab there, then if someone gets reported for stealing mods, it can be traced back and I hope they would take action on that account (such as revoking their license).

They're building upon the old engine, AFAIK, so that's why the animations and stuff are basically the same. I wouldn't even mind if they left the graphics unchanged, though, so long as they keep putting in new stuff like they show here (siege weapons and destruction).

Everybody is doing these VR shooting galleries now, though, which I'm sure aren't very difficult to put together when you have all the assets already done. However I am reminded that I need to reinstall KF2 to play around with the Sharpshooter, finally!

What the hell? is GTAV on a major sale or something?

Glad to see people supporting CDProjekt RED but wtf, buy off of gog.com instead.


No sale that I'm aware of, but GTA Online just had a major update which seems to add more than just a few new cars and/or outfits (for once ).

Pfft, all they do is bitch about drug addicts being "stigmatized" in games. Guess I should have checked the link instead of assume it'd be something mildly researched and interesting from Cracked or wherever.

Surely they will be adding a way to purchase the in-game currency if there isn't one already. Several Ubi games have microtransactions on top of a standard $50-60 price tag...

When did this game become a sci-fi shooter? Those guns and mechs and all are cool but don't fit the setting.

Now if they added an alien invasion ala Independence Day, that would be kinda cool. As it is, I haven't played this game in months and this will probably not entice me to do so.

It became pretty sci-fi about half-way through the main game's story, lol. The whole thing revolves around controlling the supply of Bavarium, a magical mystery mineral native to the islands. It's refined and used in energy production and weapons more potent than nuclear, and for a couple of vehicles it generates a force field. So the DLCs are just continuing that trend into the setting's near future.

So I'm guessing this requires you to log into their server with your Steam credentials...?
No, you login to Steam's Web API which then grants permission to GOG a list of your owned titles.

To add to this, it requires you have your Steam profile set to public, so they're not getting any information that isn't displayed for everyone to see. The only reason to have you link accounts is so they can verify you really are the owner of both.

Not much of a preview... Anything not revealed years ago amounts to little more than them paraphrasing a couple lines from someone else's month-old interview. I learned more about how shitty that site is than I did the game.

How would they enforce this? Do they monitor every minecraft server?

Doubtful, but I'm sure MS is eager to put a couple of employees on the task of investigating any reports of it they get. God forbid anyone uses their product for self-promotion without paying for the privilege! We all know Mojang doesn't give a single fuck, which is why they never did anything like this before.

Meh, the only bug I can recall (more of an oversight, really) is that those bases with the annoying superweapons still use their superweapons on you after you capture them. You have to reach certain points in the story in order to disable them... I guess they didn't anticipate people like me going free-roam crazy, which is odd.

Definitely never had a car I was using disappear.

Yeah, it may be a convenient excuse for them now (that their publisher overlords mandated the monetization), but it doesn't change the fact that they eagerly complied. They're not winning back any respect so easily.
