How could they announce an open beta and that their backend service is still in beta when the game has "gone gold"... oh yeah, Randy Pitchford duh.

This looks like Borderlands retarded stepchild. I thought they were working on a WWII game that seemed like a takeoff from "inglourious basterds"; which undeniably looked stupid but not as bad as this game.

This idea that anything to do with VR has to run games on ULTRA settings @ 90FPS is really missing the boat. If that's the requirement then just call every one of these units dead in the water now.

Turn the settings down a little and tadaa, FPS. The worry about framerate is largely overblown and focusing on the wrong VR issues.

EDIT: I said do do.

This is acceptable for low end VR like Google Cardboard but when you're spending almost a grand for a VR headset it's going to be a hard sell to get people to lower their graphical expectations to the level of "Money for Nothing" Dire Straits music video from 1985.

People are already flipping their lid over AMD saying that this VR system offers "console quality" graphics.

Yummy. Since you're packing around a PC and power supply on your head, I have to wonder about weight with this one. Looking forward to reviews though.

some off hand impressions come to mind - heavy and hot, extremely uncomfortable.

you won't have to worry too much about all of that because the battery won't last more than 30 to 40 min most likely.

it'll be interesting to see the SAR rating for this as well, I would think having the computer box hip wearable would be safer.

Are they stating what size the screen will feel like in this mode?

I think this isn't a virtual cinema but a program that renders traditional games into paired stereo screens for VR headsets. The problem is with almost all games you don't have freelook or head tracking separate from your body - it makes for a less than optimal VR experience, also games with huds will probably be difficult to read.

Other than being a showcase for the Frostbyte engine this game was such a lazy effort on behalf of DICE.

Judging from youtube videos what this game needs is a patch to make the AI not appear to be functionally brain dead.

On one hand, good for Massive - on the other hand they'll probably want to push this out as a yearly title. I don't know if that'll work out for them.

The best new feature, though, is how you can link Uplay to your Steam account and import your Steam friends who have done the same. Now you just need to convince your friends to do that.

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.
