News Comments > Morning Patches
2. Re: Morning Patches Dec 5, 2017, 14:25 Frijoles
 
I broke down and bought it on PC, along with FO4 VR and another VR title. I think I'm one of the lucky minority that hasn't had any issues with it, but I haven't played terribly long yet. No stuttering issues or anything. The only complaint I have is I tend to dash when I want to teleport. I don't know what the work-around for it would be, though. Free locomotion would make me sick. Dash gets close to making me ill, so I use it (on purpose) sparingly. Now if I could just find more time.

A friend bought this, and I've got Family Sharing, so I'll download and test this in the next couple hours.

Looking forward to a review. I almost pulled the trigger anyway, but the one person who finished said it was 2.5 hours long. That's pretty damn short for $30, although about as expected for a VR game.

lol, the reviews are being trashed by Oculus users who can't run it without a hack.

Getting trashed in the Vive subreddit also. Sounds pretty bad. Few points that keep coming up:

  • Game is dropping back to Vive load screen every couple minutes, which it goes when it lags. This is on people with 1070

  • No left hand option for guns

  • Model attach point for the hand is wonky

  • Standing too close to an enemy fires through it


  • I was about to go buy it and saw the reviews. Sucks for Oculus, but saw that coming due to the lawsuit. I think I'm going to wait now until they get some patches or mods to fix the issues. That sucks.

    Hoping to try it tonight. Moved my system to a larger area, and just got the deluxe strap for my Vive yesterday. Perfect timing. Only a few days until FO4 VR too.

    Been on the fence, waiting for a sale to entice me. It'l be nice to try this.

    Try a bunch of the heroes if they aren't clicking for you. When I started, there were a few that I absolutely hated. After being forced to play them in Mystery Heroes, I learned to enjoy a lot of them (like D.Va and Zenyatta). My dislike for the remaining few is because I suck at them.

    Game crashes if I change resolution. Not just crash, but force a hard reboot of my computer. If anyone is having a similar problem, set the graphics to low, restart, put game at desired resolution, restart, set graphics to Uber. That seems to have fixed it.

    Unfortunately, I played for about 20 - 30 minutes last night and thought I was going to barf. Seems to be a few others with the problem. Which is odd since I can play Destiny 2 for 2+ hours at a stretch with no problem. Not sure what this game is doing differently, but damn. It fucked me up for an hour. Hoping to get through the first part today since the movement is jerky for spoiler-free reasons.

    People saying they were banned for using the nVidia overlay thing. That'd be quite the fuck-up since they're partners. And it's a default installation option in the drivers. Pretty sure mine was on but not recording last night and I have not been banned yet.

    They've fallen so far since being bought out. It's very sad. I don't even bother pricing computer builds there anymore.

    You mean like how GTA 4 and 5 have it on PC and somehow everything is still ok in the universe?

    Gta5 had aim assist with mouse/keyboard?

    Do you know how hard it is to hit a motorcycle while driving at 100+mph WITHOUT aim assist?? Sheesh.

    I doubt it'll amount to anything for them. Rampant IP theft is the norm in China. Shut them down and they'll be operating again within a day under a new company.

    Blizz should just DoS their servers.

    Jumped on. Can't find this new shit. Quit. These MMOs need to learn from WoW. When a player logs in to a new major update, fucking put something on the screen. I haven't played Warframe for several months. I can't remember anything. I don't know what's new and what I just haven't done.

    Edit: Think I found it. It's a place (Cetus) on Earth.

    Best I've come in was 7/100 (need a new psu my pc shuts down after 15 minutes of gaming :(, was still alive at 7/100 lol), and the building portion is isn't as important then as you have lots of space, and anything being built is a beacon *A PLAYER IS HERE*.

    I made it to 2/100 by hiding for almost the entire map (the circle kept closing with me near the edge). Came out with full shield and health with 5 or so of us left. Killed a few people while the other guy built a large base, then I hid behind a tree until he came out (or destroyed my cover with rockets). I died shortly after. He was more prepared. I don't even know how to make traps. I had walls and stairs as an option. I wonder if I have to play the PvE part to unlock those.

    6. Re: Console FoV Oct 10, 2017, 10:41 Frijoles
     
    Played about 2 hours last night. Got annoyed and alt-f4'd out. Had problems getting it to run on my primary monitor. Hopefully today it'll remember where it was last running. Also turn off the fucking dynamic resolution FPS target thing. I set it to 60. When it couldn't hit 60, the game went to shit. Took me a few minutes to remember I had set that. I'd rather it run at 45 FPS and not look like a Picasso painting. I'm on a 1080TI.

    [Rant]
    One major problem I have is that some shit isn't explained very well. There's tutorials for what seems like everything (press W to run forward!), but then it's missing for other stuff. For example, I didn't know how to heal myself. After some looking around, I was apparently still in combat so not self-healing, and I had forgotten that we could drain an Orc to get health back. The "Press [Letter] to Execute!" failed to work for me, resulting in a large creature jumping on my head. "Press [Mouse Key]" suddenly pops up. So I push it, but no. You have to push it several times. Result was death. I was near full health and attempting to execute, but then was suddenly dead because I failed a quicktime event I hadn't seen before. I'm still pissed over it.

    Hopefully it goes better tonight.

    but I guess all of the complaints from PUBG devs kind of made people want to check it out more, knowing it was possibly a more polished and less serious take on PUBG.

    This is what I did. Figured this one was free and would give a rough idea of PUBG. I'm not convinced though. Fortnite does feel like a mobile game. PUBG needs a free weekend.

    I also thought Planetside 2 was pretty good for a couple months a few years ago, and to this day I still don't understand the flow of map control or why EVERYONE is battling for THIS station (and sign-in the next day and no one cares about it). I just accepted this futile struggle to represent war, like Nam.

    This was one of the reasons I stopped playing. The battles started to get repetitive with the bases constantly flipping back and forth. There didn't seem to be much reason to holding a base. We attacked the other bases because that's where everyone was, not because there was anything at the base worth having.
