Wow, someone else in the world knows/likes Elevator Action! I happened to find that in a bargain bin after the big crash for like 2 bucks.
It ended up being one of my favorite games.

I think people are really going out of their way to be annoyed.

It's a really great game. Dial down the settings a notch and enjoy the crap out of it.

News Comments > Dishonored 2 Released
8. Re: Dishonored 2 Released Nov 11, 2016, 14:08 Phasenoise
 
I have to notch this down to 1080p (instead of 1440p) on my 980 to get speeds I feel are smooth enough for solid play. I haven't run a FPS meter to see what the rates actually were, but it was very choppy at 1440p.
DX:MD is the other title I have to notch down like this.

But it is a fun game and runs well (and looks great) at that res.

Initial game launches are often longer, like this one, due to shader compilation. Once that's done, it should only happen when you change cards or drivers.

It's a very good game, and only 40 bucks - just buy the normal game instead of the "origins edition" which is just some skins.

Dang, I was hoping it was a platformer based upon your follower from Skyrim.
Your goal is to stop the protagonist from completing the level by standing in doorways, jumping on trap plates, and pulling monsters from nearby areas. All this while Being Sworn To Carry Their Burdens.

The robot kill farms will reduce human population to the point where the remaining ones can earn a good living serving the metallic overlords.

Edge has a nice engine. But a browser isn't just an engine and Edge is sub Firefox 3.x levels of usability.

News Comments > Turtle Rock Evolves Past Evolve
7. Re: Turtle Rock Evolves Past Evolve Oct 26, 2016, 09:27 Phasenoise
 
I wanted to like this game. But I burned out on it even before the beta was done. And then the pricing nonsense came and wiped out whatever interest most people had.

But the game was always lopsided. Always. Since one entire team is one person, the balance is just too delicate. Not a great monster, any 4 scrubs will beat them. Good monster? All but 4 great hunters will lose - and the odds there are basically nil.
And worst of all, it would take 15 minutes to get there of just running around looking for a monster.

In addition to mei and zarya, they just added sniper granny too.

This probably means the next female they add will have to swing back the other way and just be a giant flying boob.

It did for me. I had a copy of the legendary edition I bought on ubersale I intended to gift to my son. He never wanted it so it sat there.

I owned all the DLC but hearhfire, and when I applied the legendary edition to my account it upgraded my license to include everything.

Mind you, I didn't have it installed so I don't know if it does something stupid like re-download anything, but I have all the DLC listed there now - and that's the only change I see.

I fear they have changed the *smell* of one of my favorite games. It no longer *sings*.

Star Control 2, and before it, Starflight 1/2 were amazing games with a real feel of exploration and discovery. I haven't played something like those since.

I hope they can recapture some of the "dealing with the unknown" feeling.

Or, may Juffo Wup consume them all.

Sure hope it has a RealCash(tm) auction house instead of fun normal loot obtaining mechanisms!

Perhaps Mr Roberts, you could, you know, work on spaceship combat a little in between showing tech demos for everything except spaceship combat.

I find non-overwhelming stretch goals comforting. That means they're real, and the game will actually get made.

If I see a stretch goal for a persistent universe, I'm backing out.

I await next year when Apple will introduce a revolutionary new audio port. Audiophile grade! No latency! Just Works!
Yes, outwardly it looks a lot like a standard miniplug, to the uninitiated.
