News Comments > FINAL FANTASY XV Demo
3. Re: FINAL FANTASY XV Demo Feb 26, 2018, 22:16 Nighthawk
Man I just wished that they would have released the Windows version closer to when they released the console versions. I would have loved to have played this version originally but after spending so many hours completing almost 100% of the console version I just don't know if I can justify paying almost full price all over again for something I know I won't finish a second time. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to pay it all over again but I just know I'll get pulled into something else and won't finish it. I kind of wish they had some sort of way to cut you a deal if you already bought the XBox One version. I guess there may be a strong mod community so I'll have to see how that shakes out. Its also a shame that being able to import your XBox One saves is only possible if you buy the game from the Microsoft Store.

Wait, go into a Gamestop on April 1st and ask for a beta key for Doom? Why does this feel like they are giving every Gamestop employee an easy April Fools joke for all that ask?

Only DirectX9? I realize the majority of games are DX9 still, but there is a good number of games I play now that are DX10/11. I think that fact alone makes it a no buy for me regardless of price.

If it is truly streaming the game wouldn't that mean it is running on your gaming PC and just relaying the video and controls much like Steam Streaming works. If that's the case why would it matter what DX version the game is using?

Also, I wish the XBox (or even the Playstation) would get an app that allows PC game streaming. If Android can do it those certainly can.

Fun little mod. I'll wait for the $5.00-$10.00 version.

I agree. It does just feel like a mod. It was fun for a bit but nothing like a true Battlefield game. They should have made the beta maps look totally different than any of the BF4 maps. I know its unpolished at this point but it currently feels like a cheap way to take the Shanghai map from BF4, swap out some vehicles and weapons and call it a new $60 game.

Is there a reward for taking them down like with the asylum demon though?

There is a nice drop for killing the single one up on the hill but you can get a nice weapon if you return to the fire keepers in the hut after killing the two on the beach.

Bait him into swinging and stay back. After his last hit lands you have time to run behind him. Just stay behind him and when he starts to sit, back up, wait for him to land and then run in and hit him a few times. If you stay behind him he will keep sitting over and over letting you get your hits in. You can easily do this at the start of the game.

2. I have all my tools bought early into the game even with Expensive Resources on as a difficulty mod. Now my only motivation left to steal is for Rope Arrows (600 gold a piece! You make about 1200 gold a mission! Fuck me!) and achievements.

Buy your rope arrows from the guy in Sirens Rest at the docks. They are only 11 gold.

News Comments > Full Steam Machines Ahead at CES
35. Re: Full Steam Machines Ahead at CES Jan 6, 2014, 22:13 Nighthawk
I'm a fan of Steam and PC games but I don't know about these.

They just seem like nothing more than buying a Linux based PC. I priced out the same components and by obviously choosing the cheapest of each I came out to around $650 without an OS. It also seems like you are in for a big disappointment when that Steam machine you bought won't play the game you want because you didn't get the one with X inside. Sure you can just buy that upgraded part and put it in yourself but I can do that with my PC already. There is a reason gaming machines cost a lot and these seem like low powered machines made to run sub AAA titles. A console gamer knows when he puts a game in it will run as expected without tweaking the graphics settings. In these it sounds like, depending on which one you get, you will have to tweak making them more confusing to people who may think they are buying a PC console.

Something else I wonder about is the Linux OS. Is it able to run any game Windows can or does the game have to be ported to Linux first? Being a Windows guy I really don't know how that works but I would be worried that manufacturers wouldn't try to optimize the Linux drivers for the best performance since they are not their #1 customers. I know of Valves hatred toward Windows, not to mention the added cost of bundling it into a system, but it seems like you are putting a lot on the future of gaming with Linux.

If you are actively renting a dedicated server can't you already set up a private match that only you and your friends can connect too?

News Comments > Diablo III Auctions Detailed
7. Re: Diablo III Auctions Detailed May 1, 2012, 21:35 Nighthawk
How separate are the items between playing single player and multiplayer? For example, if there is a unique item on the auction house, and there is only one of those items in the whole Diablo 3 world, can I still possibly find it in my game if I only play single player?

If single player and multiplayer are one in the same in terms of items to be found, then that is where I have a small issue with paying for items. It would be like plucking something out of the game I paid for that I will never be able to get because someone else in the world already found it.

The only reviewer who tells it like it is is Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw and his Zero Punctuation reviews. While he may seem to hate every game, I find his points to be valid even if I enjoy a game he tears to shreads.
