News Comments > Dishonored 2 Released
6. Re: Dishonored 2 Released Nov 11, 2016, 12:50 Frijoles
 
Been enjoying it, but yeah the performance is crap. I'm getting around 35 - 45 fps on a GTX 980. Tried a few suggestions but can't seem to get over 45 frames. Gameplay wise, it's been good. Although I will say that the guards are way too alert. They seem to be able to see me through tiny slits in the geography while I'm crouched, so there's not nearly as much sneaking as I had hoped. If you come directly behind them it's fine, but anywhere in front and they seem to spot you pretty easily.

one thing that has struck me as ludicrous so far is the game's absolutely absurd initial load time. It's nearly 3 minutes to get to the menu.

But what a pretty menu it is. I haven't launched since the initial one last night, and it was slow. Wondering how it will do now that I've played. I also don't care for the character animations and character visuals. They look pretty crappy. And the start of the story felt very rushed. I realize they needed to push us in to the story to get it going, but it felt like they gave it a good 5 or 10 minutes of thought. Everything else is lovely, including the gameplay.

I did non-lethal in the first game. Everything dies this time around.

I'm a huge VR fan and a huge RA2 fan. But no. As you said, this looks terrible to control. Until they get something that lets me control the board without controllers in my hands, I can't imagine playing a fast-paced game like this.

Now a Populous game in VR I could get behind. Let me create and destroy mountains. Not place buildings.

I really like the screenshots being added to the side of the main banner. Don't have to bother with the page now if it doesn't look interesting. Only thing I'd like to see added is a recent review score.

If Valve wants to get developers onboard then it should be provided support to developers and pushing for a simultaneous launch.

Does Valve ever support anything after they launch it? Other than DOTA?

As much as I would love a new class...I am more interested in new content.

Same. I've repeated the same shit too many times due to Seasons. Not sure I'd want to do it again for a new class.

It's getting some good reviews, but I've heard the single player campaign is pretty short (4 - 6 hours). Granted I imagine the real value is in the MP, but that doesn't interest me as much.

I played a shitload of NS2 when it came out. Hard to go back these days, though. There's just too many other games to play. I'm kinda surprised there's not an NS3 yet, to be honest.

News Comments > Fractured Space Celebrates Million Players
4. Re: Fractured Space Celebrates Million Players Oct 27, 2016, 18:09 Frijoles
 
1 million accounts, but doesn't even show up in the top steam games. Does it have an external launcher or something? The lowest game, Planetside 2, has 2k current players. So it'd have less than that. For a game with a million accounts, it sounds like there's nothing keeping people around. Seems I have the game already. I wonder if I'm included even though I've never tried it.

Or it just isn't showing up on the stats for some reason.

Like or not, voice actors can make or break a game. Think about how abusive it was in Oblivion.

Although it sucked having the same guy do every voice in Oblivion, that game didn't exactly flop. I don't think I've ever not bought a game due to shitty voice acting, although I've certainly been aware of it.

I should get in to the VA business. It's a good time for it.

News Comments > Sid Meier's Civilization VI Released
8. Re: Sid Meier's Civilization VI Released Oct 21, 2016, 12:51 Frijoles
 
Played 3 hours last night before bed. So tired. I like the changes to city-states. I didn't do much with them in Civ 5 other than dump a bunch of resources on to them. I suck at Civ though. Also started my own religion (Frijolism). Interface is taking me a bit to get my head around. One city suddenly was going to leave due to negative amenities. I didn't realize that was a thing to monitor. Can't find Great Person points anywhere, but lots of references to increasing the point count.

Overall I'm enjoying it. Not a single bug so far. Runs silky smooth. I like having 2 different trees to follow (research and civic). I'm not going to get much sleep this weekend.

So many characters to choose from, and they pick one that nobody knows and have to look up. Apparently a character from Warcraft 3.

I got an Oculus coming tomorrow and the controllers pre-ordered. I think I'll definitely look closely at this game.

Isn't it Vive only at the moment (unless you mean when you get the controllers)? I imagine they'd add Rift/Touch support eventually (when Touch is released). I'm waiting for them to add a few more levels. Sounds pretty short at the moment.

New Vive controllers are inevitable, and will likely ship with the second version of the headset.

I really hope so. Valve seems to have a bad habit of pushing something out there, and then forgetting all about it. I know HTC is the one building these, but have there been many software developments with SteamVR? Look at Rift and ATW. And now they have ASW. I know Valve would rather solve dropped frames differently, but this is one area I disagree with. I don't get much judder in the Rift. I do get it in the Vive more often.

As for that "killer app", that's still to be seen. Vanishing Realms would BE that killer app if it got more than one person developing it.

They're coming. The lineup from Oculus over the next year looks really good. I'm hoping they translate over to Vive. As much as I love the Vive and Roomscale, the Rift (IMO) is simply more comfortable, and the headphone solution on the Vive is shit. If there's one thing I hate dealing with, it's the fucking ear pieces on my Vive.

So yeah, I hope gen 2 solves these problems. And I hope Oculus version of Roomscale and touch blow things out of the water.

[90% of the players in my friends list (80+) simply do not log in to Overwatch anymore. It seems like there has been a huge decline across the board in the past couple months.

This is me. The Olympics event really left a sour taste in my mouth. I had a friend who pushed really hard in it to get the skins he wanted, did the competitive shit, etc. He's burned out and hasn't played since. Time is also an issue for me, and other games are higher on my list right now. To be fair, one of those is WoW, so it's not like they've lost me as a customer.

However there are plenty of excellent simulator games that have adpoted VR support such as the updated DCS World 2.0 which just looks amazing in VR.

Just tried this last night for the first time with my Rift. After waiting what seemed to be about 5 minutes to load, I was about to force it to quit when it came up. Looked amazing. And then I promptly crashed. Still, the brief moment I was in the air was pretty neato. I'll have to try the helicopter one.

I played when the game released so many years ago, but stopped a short while after that. I haven't looked at it since it went F2P. Is it worth jumping back in if you just do the F2P part? I heard it's pretty restricted, but that was when they first introduced it.

I've had this game on my wishlist for a while now, and it's still at full price ($50). Perhaps they should consider a sale if support is ending.
