I know some people love that game, but I haaated it. Just wanted to give my opinion in order to save you some dollars. It's the most linear shooter I've ever played(other than on rail shooters...). The only control you have is what weapon you use and where you shoot. This is the opposite of what I enjoy. People who love this usually love it for the supposedly awesome shooting, but I found it mediocre, so there was nothing left for me.

Did you play it with a controller or Mouse and Keyboard?

both, mostly controller though. at least the input isn't totally borked *coughlikewatchdogs1cough* it's just the control scheme.

they've managed to take all of the fun out of the genre, you just press "go fast" to go faster, and your character auto-navigates any bumps or curves in the terrain. Your only job is to not run into trees.

It's Forza frozen mountain edition.

I dunno. It definitely makes you go faster if you move to the right spots. Your speed isn't only determined by you pressing "accelerate". Also, your character doesn't auto-navigate... Maybe you chose poor words. You definitely have to go around obstacles or else you lose speed. Gravity will push you down a bump though, which is normal... Going down the mountain without crashing is easy, yes, but doing it faster and with a better score is the challenge.

Unfortunately, to get amazing scenery at 1440p with everything cranked (especially the fabulous HFTS shadows), you need a card that doesn't exist and may not exist for another year or two.

Also, I think whatever implementation of TXAA they have is really awful compared to games like Dishonored 2, Fallout 4 and GTA V. On a GTX 1080, 2X TXAA should not yield such a disastrous performance hit.

Do you really need AA in 1440p?

Absolutely! Everything is just a shimmering mess without it. The visual difference even between 2X TXAA and the default SMAA w/ temporal filtering is very significant. Anything in the distance that has lots of thin lines, e.g. the Golden Gate Bridge, will be visually "crawling" as you move toward it, but TXAA makes everything perfect. And while I see a lot of people saying TXAA makes things blurry, I disagree. I think it looks amazing.

Ok.

Personally, I hate all AA. It makes things blurry, like you say, but most importantly, it makes things "unprecise". I'd rather see "shimmering" and pixelation. Plus, disabling AA is always a big performance gain.

Loved the first game. I almost 100%ed it. I played it entirely with the M&KB and it was great. It's true that there's some weird mouse glitch in the intro sequence for some reason and also the alien augmented reality game is unplayable with a mouse, but for everything else, there's zero issues.

You don't need to kill or steal in WD2, just use the non-lethal options and steal from bad guys. Also, review consensus says that the game is better than the first in every way.

In my opinion, if you believe everything devs tell you about a game that is far from being released, you're the one at fault. Especially for that kind of indie game... I didn't have unrealistic expectations, I didn't preorder and I harbor no ill sentiment against them. A tiny novice indie team with an AAA fan base and expectations, it's impressive they actually shipped something without complete mental breakdown. Also, a ton of other devs have done things similar to this and you almost never hear about that kind of backlash from the public. It's a bit hypocritical. I didn't buy the game yet, especially because it's way too much money for what it is, but I'll definitely check it out later when they finish it.

Ok I'm calling bullshit.
1st, Sean Murray went on a national PR tour promoting the game and features up until a week before the games launch. They were backed by Sony, and had major gaming sites whoring over them (IGN). Made an appearance on Stephen Colbert's show where he again repeatedly lied through his teeth. Peter Molyneux is a big time dreamer but even he would come clean about what did and didn't make it into the game long before a game went BETA, let alone after a game went Gold.
And a fan base was made based off things the dev team TOLD the public which generated interest and created the base. And as for backlash, um, yeah did you not hear about Aliens Colonial Marines? Or how about all of the choices you make in the Mass Effect series that came down to being fucking worthless. So much that they patched in another ending? Microsft and DRM with the Xbox One (which again to backlash they removed).

Do some fucking research.

I read the first line of your post, then the last one, and because of this, I didn't read the rest. I wasn't a fanboy of the game like you must have been to muster such passion, so I don't know all the details, but I never claimed to know them.

If you can get a refund on Dragon's Dogma, it's this month's Humble Monthly 'top' pick... So for $12 USD, you'll get that, immediately, and another 5-7 games in a week.

I never buy from the Humble Bundle. It makes me feel bad that the devs almost make no money. If I want to give money to charity, I'll give it to charity, if I want to buy good games, I'd rather encourage the devs who make them and need to pay rent.

You can move the slider to give the devs ALL the money if you get it on Humble can't you? Or is that just for the bundles?

Also, don't forget about Steam's 30% cut!

Yeah, I know about the slider, but like, 10 bucks for all these games feels like a steal to me. Maybe in some cases, if you factor Steam it could be acceptable...

curious why people say shadow warrior 2 is a much better game than doom.. I found doom great, though only in high difficulty ( in default it was empty and thus meh), whats so great about shadow warrior 2 ?

I wouldn't say "much better". Doom does some things better than SW2, but SW2 does other things better.

- SW2 doesn't have glory kills, is faster, more brutal and the gore physics are much better. The combat is just better.
- It also has randomly generated and truly open levels. Doom has some open levels, but they're mostly linear.
- I thought that Doom had a better story, but SW2 is pretty damn funny.
- SW2 and Doom both have great music, but I feel that Doom's is slightly better.
- Doom's upgrade system is kinda shitty, while SW2 has a pretty deep one. Also, you can play SW2 lots of different ways and customize everything. In Doom, you don't really have a choice.
- Let's not forget that SW2 has full campaign coop and much more replayability.
- SW2 looks better, especially textures.

I think they're both great games, but SW2 is a true PC game with none of the consolization that Doom suffers from. I had more fun with it.

I also miss daily flash sales. They were fun. But there's a lot of really good deals in this sale. I wouldn't call them mediocre.

As for Doom VS Shadow Warrior 2, they're still pretty different games. Shadow Warrior is more freeform, open ended and customizable. Doom is more linear and focused. I do prefer SW2. The combat is just so much better. I would definitely play both though.

They claimed that they added the glory kills to Doom to make the game faster. What a load of bullsh*t. Play SW2 and tell me which one is faster. Glory kills are only there to make the game playable for gamepad users.

Loved the original back in the day, but this looks terrible. There's no water splashes when you drive in water. That's an instant fail for me.

There is though... :p they're just really small and only cover the bottom 1/8th of the tire.

You're half right. When you drift, there's fire on your tires, even if you're in water. Looks bad.

Yeah I don't get that either.
Violence is ok in games but showing a pussy gets everyone upset.

At this point, it should be obvious to the entire world, The US is one Fucked Up country.

The game was made by a studio in Canada and Ubisoft is a French company. But, yeah, that kind of censorship is because of loud crying Americans.

Can't wait until the public beta test is over, the game is patched and goes on sale and then I can finally buy it.

You're taking a risk pre-ordering a game or buying day-one. That's especially true with a game from Bethesda now that reviewers don't get early access.

Yeah. I really want to play it, but I'll wait for more patches and reviews. Beth's no pre-release copies thing is a dick move.

Yeah, I honestly don't think that the novelty of this thing would last through 30 games, let alone hundreds. The titles mentioned in the article are definitely the ones I'd want to revisit for a stroll down memory lane.

For something to throw on the TV with the family around over the holidays that isn't the "burning yule log" movie, I'd say this hits the mark.

The nostalgia is all about the limitations. There's a reason why some people still prefer vinyl, yes you have to get up off your ass when you want to change the record, but that's really part of the charm.

Shit, people for some reason still buy physical media discs to play the latest console games, which means you have to get up off your ass every time you want to change the title.

What you guys seem to want is just an emulator, this isn't that. But I think the simplicity and nostalgia will rub off well on many older gamers. I'm of two minds about the save slots on the games to be honest, I doubt I'd use it if i bought one of these, as it kinda defeats the whole point of the nostalgia.

Well, it would be great if it wasn't 60 bucks. That's HUGE. For 20 or even 30, I'd buy it right away.
