News Comments > Tom Clancy's The Division Open Beta Trailer

I'm not a fan of cover shooters and didn't even know that was the case for this game, nor the light RPG aspect but after playing the closed beta it grew on me. I do wish it took the background story a little more seriously but at the end of the day you want a game to be fun.

I know they're planing on this lasting throughout a whole year with the usual season pass stuff but I see it as another flash mob game where the population will surge initially and then rapidly falloff.

There are mods that turn off the weapons breaking and the infinite enemy spawns for SS2, makes it much more enjoyable.

The real ending to SS2 was lost I believe to a hard drive crash and the one they ended up putting in the game was a last minute hack.

The opening levels of the campaign are decent but then it turns into this artsy fartsy bullshit, even that WWII "dream" level could have been amazing but it was just extremely lazy.

Trust me, you don't want the campaign. Zombie horde mode never did anything for me and the Dead Ops Arcade II feels like an unpolished afterthought.

I found it easily worth it. It is a adventure game, just in first person. Go from area to area, look at the prettys, click on things to get the descriptions and get lots of cool story and character. Tell Tale games are not that much different, same as old school adventure games. I got alot more enjoyment out of this than most games or movies and activities for same or more cost.

I actually dont get the dilemma. Its not like its a boring Call of duty campaign for 3 times the cost for the same time. I do not get it.

It's not an adventure game, it's a three hour, linear, barely interactive - and I use that term extremely generously - walk simulator set to a backdrop of audio recordings to give you at least some sense of story. It's not my fault these guys spent two or three years crammed into a small space making this turkey.

You're never once challenged with using anything you find in the environment in a creative way at all. I would sit these guys down and force them to all to play the original infocom text adventures, or at the very least the original Sierra titles with a text parser.

You don't have to tell me about how games are getting dumbed-down but this takes the cake.

The concept for an American Truck Simulator isn't a bad idea but not this soft-core rated G game.

It would take someone like Rockstar to inject some cold hard reality into this idea, with the usual demented humor of course.

Truck driving is an honorable, law-abiding profession. Keep that playground smut in GTA where it belongs.

oh please, I want to simulate "The Duel" that shit is straight up documentary material.

Maybe I'm wrong but that whole thing over the Firewatch refund was an inside PR move.

game is not worth $20

it's debatable if it's even a game.

Wait, I thought you could only make money in the movie biZ by marketing to 13 year olds. Certainly it was a typo.

I doubt any 13 year old willing to drop $20 to see the movie was turned away from the box office.

it's not hard to understand, i can summarize the problem with one line:

"the xbox can't retain 2 totally different parts of the city in it's memory, let alone process them at the same time without exploding"

Why call out the Xbox on this? The ps4 is only marginally more powerful, and they have the same amount of ram. Neither system was a powerhouse, ever, which is the first time in console history. If they put in split screen, the game would look no better than if it'd been made single-screen for the 360/PS3.

I'm more disappointed that Ubi admitted they held back the PC version visually, so that the consoles didn't look woefully outdated already. That pulled this game from a "let's see about getting my buddies to buy it with me within the first couple weeks" to "maybe in a few months or so". At $30 or lower. I didn't build a monster just to have it run games built for a netbook.

The visuals on the PC version are fine, gameplay over graphics. The problem is that most people can't get past the arcade shooter gameplay, it's a very casual affair even though the story is worthy of hard core survival roll play.

Seems like for a major upgrade to the architecture you're going to be throwing away a lot of those lego bricks. For the really cutting edge stuff you're right back to the problem with heat dissipation.

Can't you just go the unrecommended way and remove the telemetry service from your system, there's even a way to stop Cortana from running by renaming the executable between stopping it from taskmanager, you have to be quick because it'll autostart again.

To quote Hillary Clinton "What difference does it make!!"

I don't know about Ghost Recon Future Soldier but if there were awards being handed out for fakeist E3 demo I thing Randy Pitchford would take top honors for Aliens Colonial Marines.

At least you can still change them yourself even if you have to dig deeper than the surface menus.

I'd like to see someone attempt any type of circumvention to google spying on you with an android phone or tablet etc.
