I don't understand the angst over the title.

Change your desktop shortcut to say StationShock. Enjoy StationShock, this fun new game which accidentally put the word Prey on the loading screen.

It runs well, has a really cool feel and above average sort of story, and is more fun than the overwhelming majority of games currently out there. I'd consider that much higher than a "5", but no, not a perfect 10 either.

I've had a lot of fun with it, and am nearing the end of a second playthrough. The first run was as a Pure Strain Human, this one is a Full Alien Mess. Both are fun, and have very different difficulty / time curves.

To each their own!

Exactly. This is strange. Someone put another brand's batteries in a device and they exploded.

Okay... ?

The people who care so much about the characters of Overwatch, as in pathologicaly OCD over those characters, have a fucking disease. Get a fucking life is a lame and overused idiom, but GET A FUCKING LIFE YOU FUCKING LOSERS!

It's even dumber than that. The character IS half American native. People with strange agendas leaped to conclusions because her mom is Egyptian and she's in the Egyptian military. Thus having any skins which are American native in origin are some sort of slight or my new pet peeve "cultural appropriation"

Or, she's more like Dad than Mom sometimes, dipshits.

The unskippable movies when you launch the game include one for AMD, but it's AMD RYZEN branded, which is new. Nothing to show a preference to their GPUS. Although the game doesn't seem to be very CPU-dependent from what I can tell, and If I remember correctly, the CryEngine sucks for multithreaded support

God dammit publishers - include a skip intro movies option. Seriously. This is stupid.
Now, that said, you can go into the videos folder and delete them to soothe your sanity.

The game runs smoothly, period. I haven't looked to see how heavily it loads cores, because it's running at max refresh rate on my old crusty ivy bridge CPU. So if it isn't using all cores, evidence indicates it doesn't need to.

I don't view killing the VIP as trolling or ruining anything. It's a totally legit outcome to their story based upon their design.

That said -

But I'm in the same boat with games these days. I just don't have an interest in online experiences which are basically grief simulators. If others are into it - cool. I'm just going to do other stuff.

I just want her to go away.

If we all just ignore her, she will. But if people flame, rant, argue, and sometimes threaten, she becomes validated, and will live on.

Even though it has been done to death, I still like WW2 the best from many angles.

I can't help but imagine my grandfather, some poor farm kid, thrown into a meatgrinder. Given the odds in some of those battles, it's incredible I exist today.
Luckily for me, he was one seriously tough farm kid who ended up highly decorated (and perforated), but got to go home to his wife at the end.

So what's new in this expansion? He never mentions any new features in that blogpost.

What, hearing it is insane doesn't give you enough information? Are you not tempted by the madness?

Reads a little too much like the auto dealer radio ads which indicate the manager left town and they've gone crazy with deals deals DEALS!
Would a sane dealership do this, NO SIR.

News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch This Week
7. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda Patch This Week Apr 4, 2017, 19:41 Phasenoise
 
I propose two small changes.

1. Stop putting the camera below characters faces. This is wildly jarring for people used to TV/Movies where the perspective is generally from eye level to slightly above eye level. Insisting we should see up Ryder's nostril is very odd, and its basically the default.
2. Stop having characters stare a foot above the person with whom they converse. Not only does this just look odd by itself, but it lends itself to that weird craned neck look characters often have in the spoof reels.

Those two things would help a metric ton.

The game itself is actually pretty fun, and the graphics are often incredible. The texturing is very good. Interestingly enough, they freaking NAILED the meshes, textures, and speaking animations of Krogans. Humans/Asari, not so much.

Coach seating is inhumane if you are over 5'10". Your knees will be crammed into the seat in front of you, god forbid they try to recline - you'll die.

I get they are saving costs, and I'm sympathetic. I'd even pay for a little more room. Sadly the gulf from "sardines" to business or first class is HUGE in cost. I'd like some Coach Plus where they can still treat you like shit but you get two more inches of space.

There is no way a bios update is going to improve performance by 25%. Please don't believe that.

It's FINE that nobody would be playing DoW2 anymore. The fact that 2% keep playing this odd grindy crappy offshoot is the anomaly, not the actual market to chase.

I'm fine with them leaving that out and making the actual RTS game itself better.
