Dishonored 2 is falling fast.

Loving Dishonored 2...over 40 hours so far as reported by Steam. Two playthroughs going at once...low chaos Corvo and high chaos, kill-everything-in-sight Emily. And the graphics are just incredible...the lighting and texture work are super A+ top-notch amazing.

Agreed! Dishonored 2 is GOTY for me, clockwork mansion level is map of the year. I'm on first playthrough as low chaos Corvo also. Glad it came out later in the year so got discounted to $35 fast in the sales or I would not have bought it until next year!

Should have given away Black Flag or Rogue.

I'm sure they are saving those for the 50th anniversary

Ugh.. Anyone else finding that as you get old you have no time to actually play and finish the games that come out? Currently my game queue list just keeps growing.

Yeah, I do tend to take more time to finish games. The days when I'd get a new game and have it finished the next day are long since past. I still haven't finished Dishonored 2. My solution: just buy fewer games

The only reason I haven't finished Dishonored 2 is because of the garbage performance, relatively. I haven't tried after the 4gb patch of last week but that's because ppl here said they didn't notice anything.

This game runs very well! I still absolutely curse the fact I went to 144hz because 60fps is now stuttery to me and an actual no go, but turning on the AA option that forces MSAA 2X (cant remember the term atm) DRASTICALLY increased my fps. And yes, it actually warranted the capital letters.

Yeah I had lots of antialiasing artifacts using the recommended settings through Geforce Experience but they cleared up with AA set to TXAA 1x and default sharpness of 10. I bought Dishonored 2 for $35 from Walmart on turkey day, installed it and have been running the beta patch. I'm only playing at 1080p/60hz on an i7, 16gb, 970GTX though. I get dips in FPS in open areas but nothing too bad. According to game stats I'm at 12.5 hours and nearly finished with 3rd level, only because I'm doing a stealthy playthrough and too stubborn to not get every rune/bonething. I think I am starting to understand what I can get away with as far as hiding and try not to cheese z-axis too much to hide from baddies.

I hope they locked down the scissor lifts also. (One of the reviews I read mentioned that hacking scissor lifts is overused in the game for doing anything vertically)

$20 Fallout 4 https://www.direct2drive.com/#!/download-Fallout-4/5011017

That level of sale for FO4 seems to be pretty widespread, $19.79 on Steam right now too...I may have to finally buy it.

Even better actually; the boxed version was $10 on Amazon yesterday so I finally snagged it. Thx slickdeals.net

You're pwned if someone has physical access, the os doesn't matter.

It's a brilliant hardware hack though, especially the cache poisoning of popular websites that may or may not be on the machine. (thats from the wired article; I didnt read the ars one)

I'd just rather they announced SoaSE II.

Yeah Brad Wardell is spamming trolling my email, subject is "A message for Sins of a Solar Empire players", when opening the first sentence is, "I know some of you clicking on this email are hoping that Iím here to tell you about Sins of a Solar Empire II. I hope to be able to talk more about Sins of a Solar Empire more in the near future, but today I wanted to make sure you know that weíre releasing a new RTS that I think you might like: Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation."

Classy...

If the Special Edition runs better than my modded install of basically mesh and texture replacements, than I am all for it. This the one game that suffered the most when I made the change to Win 10...having it running well again without having to sacrifice my eye candy would be great. All the other types of mods will be adapted eventually. The mod community is nothing if not determined and resourceful. Given enough time they have proven that they will add whatever the hell they want to a TES game eventually. (speaking from the PC perspective of course..console modding is not there yet obviously)

Yeah I'm sure it will since the 4gb ram limit will be gone since this is 64-bit.

60 minutes last Sunday had a segment on AI and this issue came up during one of the interviews. At some point the courts will need to decide how AI in self driving cars decides who is more important to protect, the driver or other cars/people involved. Lawyers will still sue either way I'm sure though
