Hell, at one point you could have gotten the game from GMG for 33 dollars.

getting a deep discount is my main reason for pre-ordering, sure the price will drop eventually but they spike at release and take a few months to drop again.

This game is pretty much region free, you just have to avoid Asian and Russian keys. Buying from places like Brazil offers the deepest discount but you have to do extra work to "game the system".

I'm really enjoying it as well. However, at level 7, I'm still using the starter weapons (although modded). I can't seem to find anything that increases the DPS over them. I should probably head to the DZ, but dammit, I want to improve the base! I suppose I could .. *gasp* .. buy a weapon from the vendor instead of waiting until one drops.

Now if I only had more time to play.

don't sell your gear/weapons to vendors, recycle it and use the materials at the crafting station. You can convert green materials into blue etc.

It's not getting great reviews on STEAM (mixed), not that is the be-all-end-all, but makes me hesitant to pull the trigger to drop $60 on it right now. Hopefully they'll have a free weekend trial at some point.

Sounds like most of you are having fun though!

That's the trick, don't pay full retail for games. Buying it on Steam offers no benefits as you still need to install uplay client.

You can buy the game for around $40 from many of the cd key e-stores.

It all sounds so exciting until you realize the VR experience is mostly an exercise in how long you can stand having a hot, heavy headset strapped to your head.

The effect of being able to fully immerse into a 3d world is cool but not for the length of time I spend in most games, several hours at a time.

So i watched some twitch during beta of this..

Still don't fully get what the game is about.

So Destiny but in New York with different items basically?

What's "end game"? Is this mostly PVP based?

Why did that video trailer just tell me it was a huge hype piece of shit? (that was my impression, i fucking hate shit strung together trailers)


Think Borderlands but in third person with reality based setting and authentic looking weapons.

It's not an MMO, it's very light RPG. You don't have to choose a character class and stick with it the whole game, you can respec your skills at any time.

There's PvP in the game but there's no game winning event, you can team up with three other players or go solo and take on NPC's as well as other players in a sectioned off area on the map called the "Dark Zone". Gear you find in this mode has to be extracted before you can keep it. At the extraction zone a helicopter is called in and you attach a bag onto a drop line, other players can kill you and pick up your loot.

If microsoft wants to sandbox something they should start with the web browser, it should be easy as clicking a button to purge all content from your browser and all the files accumulated from browsing the web should be sandboxed.

They seem unwilling to do that, maybe because they want to data mine those files.

3. Re: Hitman DirectX 12 Support Mar 5, 2016, 15:12 DangerDog
 
This article reports that DX12 is forcing vsync on.

What we are seeing is the first implications of a new pipeline for graphics and compositing. WDDM 2.0 (Windows Display Driver Model) is a very big shift from what existed previously with WDDM 1.3. The days of exclusive fullscreen gaming may be on the way out as Microsoft shifts developers and hardware vendors into a standard path through the OS compositor rather than bypassing it. Implications for this change are only beginning to be understood, but letís see how it affects Ashes of the Singularity today.

I've read the "goal" of the game is to make it to the center of the universe, I'm sure those people who enjoy exploration in Elite Dangerous will be up to the task.

The nano-bots being omnipresent on every planet seemed a little silly to me, here's an open world game but then put nano-bot police that come after you if you start killing lifeforms.

Seems like IBM tried to turn their business into a completely service oriented one much like HP and most large companies are doing their own IT internally.

If only they could go back to the good old days of mainframes where they were the only game in town for support.

Huge sales of 35% and more all around the place. Must not be selling well.

Wrong, this happens with every game that's about to get released. Its called flash selling and promotes the game even more. I could have bought the new Far Cry game from GMG last week for 33 dollars. does that mean that game didn't sell well either?

lol, actually... yeah I bet Far Cry Caveman game isn't selling all that well. They should have gone full Jurassic Park - who cares about authenticity just look at that ARK game.

As for The Diversion, I bet it does alright. Feels like a lull in games being released right now, but it'll hold most peoples attention for three to six weeks. The next flash in the pan game will be Doom in May.

The atmosphere is the main selling point for the game, I don't think it'll have the longevity that some people are hopping for.

The only hook is to grind for higher DPS weapons... so you can kill people and AI faster with no end game?

Are you some kind of wizard? You mean, in like, no other online shooters you don't grind for higher DPS to kill things faster? *mind blown*

Depends on the game, but with this one there's really no competitive multiplayer modes so the satisfaction of being able to kill players faster is short lived.

Prices will come down, display technology will improve. When it's down to $200-$300 for a headset then maybe it'll be something to geek out on for the masses.

Google "cardboard" was a toy to play around with VR but the concept of utilizing your cellphone for VR on the cheap is actually gaining traction. I hadn't realized till I came across some videos about Trinus VR http://trinusvr.com/

I don't think we'll make it to robotic automation that quickly, there's a speed bump in the way that's going to grind everything to a halt.
