For me, its the slow assed movement. Monsters constantly charge at you and you are not able to dodge or move out of the way quick enough. And on top of making your movement slow, its all based on Stamina, and weapons use stamina too. So guess what? When you are fighting your stamina constantly bottoms out and you are unable to dodge.
That's not how it works at all. Stamina usage depends on your type of weapon. The switch axe uses 0 stamina when using the Y button attack (on a controller) or Y + B attack, but constantly swinging using the B button attack does use stamina. Weapons like the bow constantly use stamina so it won't be a spam fest from a distance, but a weapon like the bowgun uses no stamina, but has to be reloaded constantly and that's where you will be hit as you move even slower as you reload. Maybe that is more of a weapon you want. The great thing about this game is no matter how you want to play there is a weapon that will probably fit that style, but each weapon is a completely different from each other and how the stamina pool is used. I personally don't like to block with a shield I like to play offensively with lots of dodging, so most of the sword and shield ones are out, but I do really like the fast movements of the charge blade. It also IIRC doesn't use stamina for it's main attack either. You have to balance and be patient, this is not like a Ninja Gaiden game with lightning quick reflexes will help you, it's a Dark Souls like game that you have to wear down the beasts you battle. In most of my playing of this game I rarely run out of stamina except when using the Bow.

My biggest issue with the game is the complete and utter lack of a pause button. Everything respawns, stuff you killed could just respawn, or another beast in the game could just wander to your location if you go AFK to use the bathroom and your being attacked when you get back. I am not thrilled about, after the quest is done, a timer comes up that will whisk you away, sometimes other minor creatures are surrounding you so you have to take care of them before you can loot the monster you just took down, but you got 60 seconds to take them all out and gather the materials. It was very tight in some situations. It would be all but impossible if a big beast came in and interrupted you at the end, but thankfully that hasn't happened to me yet. During expeditions, you can have a dying monster on the run and poof they disappear off the map, that is not a fun thing to happen and it has happened 3-4x to me now and with each fight going anywhere from 8-20 minutes that is a real big annoyance to fight them and get nothing.

Still overall I love the game. I was hesitant to get it but for some reason I am just really into it.

A used game is exactly identical to a new one. There is no difference at all.

Maybe or maybe not. A used game may come with scratched discs which might make it harder to read in some consoles. So for me there is a big difference between new and used for console games. When I buy a game or even a movie disc and it's new, I expect it in perfect condition, and I have returned items sealed in box if I shake the box and hear the disc rattling around being scratched.

GOG rocks!

It certainly does. It lets you control your purchased games. Don't want to update, you don't have to do that. Want to rollback to a earlier version you can do that. No forced updates and control of your games is a more important feature for me.

Don't get me wrong, I am a bit upset they don't have it ready the same time as the steam version but I would still pick the GoG version of any game over the steam version, with the exception of any game I might want to mainly play multiplayer (but that is a rare exception for me so it would be a lot if it happened once every decade ).

Don't read VG247, I don't care about social media, and I buy as many of my games from GoG.com as possible even if I can get a cheaper version of the same game from GMG for steam, so it doesn't matter to me at all what they tweeted, they are basically the only one selling DRM-free games that are supported. Yeah Humble Bundle does also sell some DRM-Free games, but their DRM-Free titles get updates but no DLC support. So you can't buy it for your DRM-Free copy (Aragami). Though to be fair, many of their DRM-Free games do give you a Steam key also so there are advantages buying at humble for titles that won't be expanded anymore like GOTY/Complete versions.

I do take solace that, as a race, we continue to improve our technology, and that someday, death from cancer will no longer be a thing.

It will continue to be a thing so long as medicine and healthcare are profit driven. There is far more money, currently, in treating cancer than in curing it. No cure will be forthcoming so long as treating it is a billions per year cash cow.

Unfortunately so true. There won't be a cure for anything anymore because cures are just not profitable. If a company ever found a cure they would hide it in some deep dark hole and then find a way to make it into a treatment that people pay over a lifetime on a daily basis. Don't think that drug companies aren't like every other company out there that wants you to pay them a monthly fee. IIRC the last cure invented was polio.

As far as TB goes, I am saddened by the news. While I haven't watched his reviews much recently, I did use to watch it a while back. My condolences to him and and his family.

Yeah it was free before from humble but I couldn't even get it to run on my Win 10 1950x box at all. No black screen, nothing at all. It just dies immediately with no error messages. So good luck to anyone giving it a try.

News Comments > NVIDIA GeForce Partner Program Illegal?
9. Re: NVIDIA GeForce Partner Program Illegal? Mar 10, 2018, 17:23 LurkerLito
 
It seems not everyone has actually read the full article.

The bottom line is this and was pointed out in the article:
For example, if ASUS Republic of Gamers (their brand) is in the GPP then ASUS cannot make a Republic of Gamers brand AMD card. Does this mean ASUS cannot have AMD cards? NO it does not. It just cannot be associated with their "Gaming" brand (RoG). The legal question becomes what happens if say for instance ASUS makes a second AMD gaming brand like say Federation of Gamers (this example is from the full article), does this break the GPP agreement because the wording is "Gaming Brand Aligned Exclusively With GeForce" so that basically can imply that ASUS might still be able to sell an ASUS AMD card, but maybe it cannot be branded a Gaming card or be associated with any Gaming related brand from the company to fully comply and get the benefits of being in the GPP. That there is dicey shit. Remember ASUS Republic of Gamers is also a motherboard, and if that brand were to comply with the GPP then they would need to disable or rebrand any board that supported an intel chip with a built in AMD graphics on board.

The exact language is: During the Term of the License, or any renewals thereof, and for a period of two years thereafter, Licensee, its principals, and Affiliates shall not directly or indirectly engage in the business of designing, developing, creating, supporting, maintaining, promoting, selling or licensing (directly or indirectly) any game engine or middleware which compete with CryEngine.

IANAL but the exact language says that you cannot develop, design, create, support maintain, promote sell, or license any game engine or middleware which compete with CryEngine.

The language says "in the business" of doing those things. Engine development is not the business of CIG. If CIG were selling/licensing their version of the engine, they would be violating that clause. But they aren't.
IANAL, but my interpretation is definitely different. That is basically a non-compete clause so while CIG themselves are not "in the business" of making a game engine, they are barred from indirectly engaging in it and promoting a competing one.

At the very least, CIG absolutely promoted Amazon's Lumberyard engine over CryEngine when they were switching to it. The Dec 23, 2016 Star Citizen Newsletter pretty much broke the contract especially the last 3 paragraphs of the following:
There is one other big announcement we would like to make with the release of 2.6. We are now basing Star Citizen and our custom technology development on Amazon’s Lumberyard Engine. Since the beginning of the project, we’ve had to make a huge number of changes to the CryENGINE code and tech to enable us to deliver Star Citizen. While the original CryENGINE had great strengths in many areas like rendering and cinematics the needs of our game were well beyond what came ‘out of the box’. So we have, over time, changed significant parts of the engine for our technology, such that only a baseline of the original engine truly remains. In the future we will continue to make significant changes to AI, Animation and Network code and systems.

When Amazon announced Lumberyard back in February 2016, we were immediately interested. While based on the same baseline technology as Star Citizen, Lumberyard is specifically designed for online games, utilizing the power of Amazon’s AWS Cloud Services and their Twitch streaming platform. Amazon’s focus aligns perfectly to ours as we’ve been making significant engineering investments into next generation online networking and cloud based servers. Making the transition to Lumberyard and AWS has been very easy and has not delayed any of our work, as broadly, the technology switch was a ‘like-for-like’ change, which is now complete.

As an added benefit Amazon AWS data centers are spread around the world from North America to South America, Europe to China to Asia Pacific, which will allow us to better support the many backers across the globe as we scale up Star Citizen.

Finally, Amazon has made Lumberyard freely available for anyone building their own game. That means that technically-inclined members of the community can have a better view 'under the hood' of our game than ever before. It's also a great path for anyone interested in game development professionally; I fully anticipate that in the coming year we will be hiring programmers who have taught themselves using Amazon's Lumberyard resources!

I can't see anything else in the last 3 paragraphs but a clear Lumberyard is so much better than CryENGINE and it's free so if you are building a game use it.

Dam, definitely going to get this. I haven't played the original SF since college. And I probably spent more than the price of this game in quarters with the original SF2 in the arcade way back. OMFG I am old.

I wouldn't trust this or UWP at all after GFWL. Seriously, any dev using those things needs to be boycotted and have their head examined for deciding to use it. It's now a real pain in the ass to get some GFWL dependent games to run. Some of the fixes required to download GFWL and install it but the ones available fail to install on Win 10 and a supposed working version that use to be available from MS has been removed so you can't even get it anymore officially. I just tried and installed an older GFWL enabled game last weekend on my new rig. I had to go find a unofficial GFWL dll file so I could just get the game to run again in single player mode. FUCK any solution from MS IMHO they'll abandon it in a few years and screw over any chance of playing those games you bought due to dependencies and not give you any kind of official way to make it work in their next forced Win 10 update that will break things.

Microtransations. They just officially lost a formerly guaranteed purchase from me. I am going with the "better to nip this in the bud" type sentiment and just boycott all games with microtransactions. The last thing I want is to even remotely support the crap that has ruined many a game on the Android platform. Better all companies that do that shit just go out of business as fast as possible.

Yeah Borderlands 2 had it and I bought it. It didn't affect the game either but it did do one thing extra, it made me skip Borderlands the PreSequel.

Funny thing is the infinite money hack will be available within an hour of release on PC lol. Good luck to them, but I am hoping the game tanks completely. Probably the only way I get it is if it happens to show up on a humble monthly bundle.

Microsoft can’t explain why its 4K is $100 better than Sony’s.
That's simple, because 4K UHD Disc playback isn't free when they have to pay a bunch of licensing fees for the privilege. PS4 Pro would probably have been $100 more if it could also playback 4K UHD Discs. Since they didn't include it in the box I wouldn't be surprised if Sony added it later via an online code you'd have to buy for about $100 to unlock.

As for me I am just going to buy an Oppo 4K UHD Disc player rather than an XB1.

Personally I hate DRM, but at the same time I don't really care if the devs put it in. Most cases I generally don't have issues with it.

What I do dislike is they never remove it. I can't stand it when I have a 3-7 year old game still installed and then run into issues when I try and play it again. I have had more than enough of previously "activated" game says too much stuff changed so it has to activate before it even wants to uninstall or I'll lose an activation. Or does stupid shit like gives me secondary "code" that proves I uninstalled the game cause the activation servers have been removed, and now I basically can't play the game I bought anymore.

DRM put it in if you want, but after a year it needs to be completely patched out. At the very least it needs to be removed before any company goes bankrupt or any activation servers get turned off. There really should be a law that forces a company to remove all DRM from a product in case of insolvency or being no longer supported.

Show a screen pic of WD2 NPC genitals and get a week suspension but talk about it to various media outlets about it and get a month suspension. That is not a violation of the Sony PSN ToS and that is a bunch of BS. You can't possibly have done anything to increase your suspension through their service while already being banned.

ROFL you can only go offline 3x per year and you have to be online to go offline. Sure just let me know ahead of time when those mysterious disasters that kick me offline are about to happen so I can be sure to do that. I am sure MS knows when that tree down the block will fall and take down the power/internet lines with it.

It's most likely a workaround for a patent someone else owns that they don't want to license. Lots of things do similar workarounds to get past patents and the trolls that would sue them.

I don't know why everyone thinks the CPUs won't work with Win 7. They will work fine in Win 7 you just won't get to use any of the newer features built into them like the 4K stuff, new instructions/GPU, or even some of the power management stuff. It will though still run though and it will probably read (generic x86 or AMD64 Compatible CPU) in device manager or something like that.

Though what will break most likely is if there is a bug in the chip that needs a microcode change. That will be 100% broken and you won't get it in Win 7 so you'd have to live with the bug or move to a new OS.

They are forcing the obsolescence of Win 7 cause they can't lock it down like they can with Win 10. With all the 4K crap they put in there they built in hardware DRM so movie studios like Sony are willing to bring content to the PC. If someone works around the DRM they can't lock it down in Win 7 cause it can't force patches to the OS, but Win 10 can be forced to patch itself.
