Unusually high amount of salted popcorn flying in the Steam forums. Mostly performance issue on new high end cards. For an engine that has been around since 2012 (Hitman) this is surprising.

Yup the game brings my GTX980 completely to its knees. BUT, as always, lowering the Shadow Quality fixes practically all of that without hardly a visual change.

Quoting myself because I couldn't finish my abobe post because spouse. Anyway literally been playing actual gameplay for only 5 minutes before I had to go:

Horrible input lag unless my FPS is flawless. FOV is just barely good enough but I'm not even sure about that yet. Facial animations are hilariously bad but w/e. The first wall Jensen knocked in.. The concrete just fell on the ground before him like a sack of puppies instead of flying outward with the force it received. It made me laugh in the not-fun way.

First (FIVE MINS!) impressions are bad but it could literally go everywhere still. No combat yet, even.

Can't wait for this game. It's going to be awesome, I don't doubt! Jensen, my buddy, can't wait to get inside you.

Pretty good Ars Technica review

A game so broken in its launch state that it even crashes while paused
Bottom line: Don't just wait for a sale; wait for a major overhaul.

I always have a hard time respecting these stability complaints. The game only had one CTD in the 24 hours I've been playing it :\

Season 1 ends on the 18th...I've hit 55 three times but can't get 56...if I do it's the next tier and the reward equates to 40 match wins! Must....try........harder!!!!

I keep hanging at 62. There's a big diff between 59 and 62. No teamplay or voicechat at 59. OK teamplay and much voicechat at 62. I love that.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW SOON I FELT LIKE I HAD SEEN EVERYTHING IT HAD TO OFFER

Seems to be a pretty common refrain in every review I've read on this game...

I mention it in my review too, but it doesn't necessarily mean the game's bad:

If there is any game that screams 'wait till its patched and finished' before buying, it is this one.

What it screams even more is "wait till it has a or more major expansions". No base building, no home planet, no co-op or any real multiplayer to speak of in its current state... makes this game a 20 dollar product at most.

I was looking forward to this game, simply because there was nothing in the near future to look forward to. Then I realized the new Deus Ex releases this month too. No longer looking forward to this empty promise that is NMS.

Somehow I thought Deus Ex wasn't going to be released until somewhere in 2017. I'm ecstatic!

I guess if you're patient, you'd be wise to wait. This game is just screaming for DLCs/Addons where you can choose your own home planet (with a home beacon quicktravel thing) where you can build your own base and stuff.

I think that's what this game misses the most.

It's what I've been saying for a long time: who cares about procedural bs when it means nothing but different "eye candy". It's marked in quotes because the game kinda looks like shit.

There are certain birds that are attracted to shiny objects. This game is about collecting shit so you can eventually reach the shiny center of the universe. I am honestly wondering how many people will remain interested in this procedural generated ergo contentless crap. What I think will happen: 6 months from now a few guys post on the Internet how they finally reach the center. They get a few thousand views but the general consensus is that nobody really gives a shit and the game is practically forgotten.

I hope I'm wrong. I'll review the game.

Is PC gaming dying, guys? I mean, I'm sure anyone can come up with a big list of great games that will release somehwhere in the future... but I'm fairly certain it will be relatively tiny compared to the last years.

The game I'm looking forward to the most right now because its release is near is No Man's Sky, and I don't even like space simulators...

News Comments > Overwatch Hits 10M; Launches Balance Patch

Those 2 really needed some nerfing. McCree could oneshot tanks. Getting oneshotted by a sniper simply isn't remotely fun. Wtf could I've done to prevent that? Not show my face?

I'll enjoy a better balanced Overwatch once I've returned from my USA trip. Gonna be chillin' at family in Connecticut (East-Haddam) and Pennsylvania (Doylestown).

I think we're mostly in agreement and I also think the random-ish stacked teams is curious especially if it happens in other Blizzard titles.

Dedicating yourself to keeping an enemy in check is not as restrictive as it sounds. If you take them out, you have at least 30 seconds before they make it out of spawn and to the fight. This time is great for healthing up and taking out stragglers, at least from a Winston perspective.

If I'd have a skillful Winston player like yourself in my team, I'd have a less hard time agreeing ^^ Sadly, more often than not I feel like I'm surrounded by idiots who have no idea how to change heroes during the match, let alone counter properly. :\

I'm doing quick matches and I'm at 161/125 win/lose ratio. It does seem like sometimes you are steam rolled hard, but I think it's just bad team synergy coming up against a good team synergy.

Today I had a match against a god-like Zenyatta on route 66. He was ridiculous in the kill cams. Orb + 2-4 direct hits in quick succession, and consistently. We were obliterated until the mid-section of the map. I changed to Winston and just focused Zenyatta. I took him out 3-4 times but once he was down our team was able to hold the map.

Edit: Same goes for Widowmaker and few other back-line hero's.. Winston just dominates them if he can get's them isolated and with his pounce.

Hm, yeah Zenyatta can be easily countered and certainly isn't OP with that health-pool of his. Widowmaker, on the other hand, simply cannot be properly countered. I've seen Winston suggested somewhere else too, but the real 1337 widowmakers (which are the only real issue here) just take that hit, grapple away and headshot Winston into oblivion.

There's really a general consensus among the players that Widowmaker is an OP class that doesn't fit into the style of the game.

This probably goes back to the match making again.. but I've only encountered one Widowmaker that was mildly compentant at aiming the grapple while under fire. And in that case I just followed her with the leap.

Elite players are a true PITA at any class they're good with, but isn't that how it goes?

True, they are, but not a Widowmaker kinda PITA. A competent Widowmaker completely blocks off an entire open area, giving her team literally free reign basically during the entire match. If you somehow get to her with the monkey without dying (there's the entire enemy team you have to pass first) you then have to kill her. The thing is, she has a 200hp healthpool. She doesn't die quickly. That all said, don't forget what we're saying here. We are saying that you have to DEDICATE yourself to the enemy sniper. Your team misses your spot -- all you do is try to get that bitch dead while she literally oneshots your team to shit.

The best counter against a sniper, is a better sniper. But what are the odds. I also found Soldier 74 to be a good counter (unless their team has a proper healer, in which case the sniper won't mind it as you nib away at her health from far away.. she'll just take her time to aim and BAM.
