They never said their changes DIDN'T affect levels 1-30.  They implied that their changes affected the entire game.  People were complaining about the whole game, so it wouldn't make sense to only fix the end game where most people had already fallen off.

Quote
Gameplay Changes

Time-to-kill enemy NPCs has been lowered.
Many improvements were made to enemy AI.
Player ammo capacity has been increased by 50% after level 30.
...
Only one of those statements specifically mentions post 30 gameplay.  For every change that only affected late game play, they specifically mentioned it.

And thanks for assuming we don't know how to hit a fucking headshot.  I use a mouse on the PC, I know how to shoot somebody in the head. 

If I creep up on some chumps standing around a body, I should be able to take one down with a quick burst to the head.  But no, the just jerk back and take further shots.

The difference between this and Destiny is that you aren't shooting aliens and monsters with crazy weapons.  These guys aren't in power armor, they aren't crazy future soldiers, they are just thugs.  I'm shooting an assault rifle at a guy with a hoodie, and he is sucking up bullets.  That is the very definition of bullet sponge.

Quote from: Harkonis on November 29, 2016, 10:04:08 PM

Sorry you guys feel that way, unless your gun is way underlevelled though I don't see how you can feel that way.  Fighting stuff at World Tier 5 with my newly acquired gear and I kill normal guys in 5-10 rounds with only the elites taking a full mag.  Bosses might require a reload.  Hit them in the head and use your abilities and things die really damned fast now (including you if you don't use cover now)

upgrade weapons, aim for head, things die fast.

I felt that way from the very start.  After the patch I even restarted with a brand new character to make sure I wasn't just in some weird place with my old one, and it still felt exactly the same to me.  I have a feeling you're talking about some post-30 content, which maybe feels better now, but the core experience is still nowhere near anything that should be called Tom Clancy.
163  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie] Arrival on: November 29, 2016, 10:20:13 PM
I went to a matinee of this today.  It was pretty good.  Well made and all, but ultimately unsatisfying for me.

Spoiler for Hiden:
It just seemed super obvious from the very opening scene and her "hit you on the head" voice over about how she views time differently that the outcome would be a way to view time non-linearly.  Add in all of the flashbacks/forwards and it was all pretty obvious about halfway through so I figured there must be something else coming...except there wasn't. 

They even really played up the mystery of who the kid's father was going to be, as if you didn't know it was going to be Jeremy Renner.  Ooooh, let's keep him out of focus for a couple minutes and then have a big reveal.  Bah.  What a joke.

It just felt like they were dragging everything on way past the point of where there was any mystery.  I'd put it on the "easy" end of the spectrum of taking elements from Contact, Sphere, Interstellar, etc.

But anyway, as I said above it was overall very well made and a good movie.  It just left me hollow at the end.

Does anybody else have the problem where they put games on their holiday/birthday lists, but know that their family won't get them so you get super tempted when they go on sale?  Yeah...Cyber Monday makes me want to just buy all the games since I know it's the best prices before launch.

168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 11/23/16 Thanksgiving Edition on: November 28, 2016, 02:49:59 PM
I played more Paladins as usual.

Then I also started on a few smaller games despite having plenty of big ones to jump into.  Sky Force Anniversary is a fun vertical scrolling shmup, much less of a bullet-hell than a lot of those types of games.  And Caveblazers is a 2D pixel action roguelike that has managed to capture my attention.  And a little bit more time in Infested Planet and Zombie Night Terror because apparently I have gaming ADHD.

I am not sure if I'm buying anything or waiting until after the holidays even though I never get games for gifts.

Having said that, I want Watch Dogs 2 on PC, thinking about Steep since they have some long term support plans for it, and maybe The Crew Calling All Units at some point.

Oh, and I'm curious to see how The Dwarves turns out, but not enough to jump in right away.

I don't think clicking Not Interested actually affects the sales lists.  Or at least not all of them.

I have said I'm not interested in stupid soccer and anime games so many times that they should never show up anywhere, but they still come up in at least some of the featured/recommended/highlighted sections.   *Fist Shaking*
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: No Man's Sky - all procedurally generated everything! on: November 27, 2016, 07:10:02 PM
Yeah, I'm in the exact same boat as you guys (except I had to uninstall to free up space).  I might go back after another patch or two, but between the disappointment and already running what was there into the ground, I'm not super excited to go back yet.

Does anyone know of a way to get steam to stop offering me things that are already in my library?Typically about 75% of things on my screen are already in my library. No matter how good the sale is, I'm not buying it again.

I thought that was supposed to be one of the things that they fixed in this new big Store update, but it appears that when things are on sale they ignore that? 

Maybe they want us to buy extra copies for our friends or something?

177  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Worth changing from a 980 GTX to a 1080 GTX? on: November 25, 2016, 03:24:25 PM
I guess it depends on your personal financial situation.  To me it wouldn't be worth it, but I don't have a 4k monitor or the extra money to spend right now. 

If you plan on doing 4k gaming with AAA first person shooters and such, then the extra speed (and probably more importantly more VRAM) is going to help you do that.

Note that these benchmarks are for the normal GTX cards, not the GTX Ti cards which are going to be a bit faster.  If your current or expected card is a Ti, you can change it to that.

It's also worth taking a look at the Humble Mobile Bundles, you can usually get a ton of games for $5 total.

Their boardgame sale just ended, but here is the current sale (I'm not as familiar with any of these games, so ymmv):

Very cool.  I downloaded the first free book, though I have no idea when I'll get to it since I have a backlog of several others to get to as well.

I'd be curious to hear if authors get anything from books they discount to $0 on Amazon?  Or is it purely trying to get people into a series and convert them into fans to buy more?  (which is also a great plan, just curious)
182  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Humble Staff Picked Bundle (Infinifactory, Grim Dawn, Volume, more) on: November 23, 2016, 03:46:49 PM
Another Humble Bundle, this one is a staff-picked bundle.

Pay at least $1 for:
Volume
TIS-100
Legend of Grimrock II

Pay more than the average (currently $4.01 for):
Infinifactory
The Secret World (I didn't realize this was even still going...)
Dungeons II

Pay $14 or more to also unlock:
Grim Dawn

If you don't own Grim Dawn already, that's a great deal for a great action-RPG Diablo-like.  Since I already own it, I went with everything below that.

I loved the premise and the story of the first game - and have no interest in the multi aspect of this one.

It's on sale on the XBL Gold weekly deals.

Should I buy it?

If you want something along the lines of a Far Cry or Crysis game with you as a rebel in a city taken over by an oppressive regime, then maybe yes.  It is kind of an open world with places to take over, emergent missions, enemies to spot and hide from, that sort of thing. 

For me most everything is pretty good except I always seem to die so quickly out of nowhere.  You need to use stealth a lot, and for me there are some little mechanics and things that didn't work quite as smoothly as the more recent Far Cry games for instance.  And the enemies take more hits to kill than i would want.

I really need to go back after these most recent patches and expansions to see how much has changed.

And the info for those that care:



Quote
Aftermath is set in the days after the Battle for Philadelphia, when the fledgling rebellion hangs in the balance. The inspirational Resistance figurehead Benjamin Walker has been broken by the KPA, and is now broadcasting counter-revolutionary propaganda for the enemy. Support for the embattled Resistance is ebbing away…

As Ethan Brady, you have been tasked to assassinate the man once known as the ‘Voice of Freedom’ for the sake of the Revolution. But instead, you will defy orders and embark on a daring rescue mission.

Aftermath is free to all holders of the Homefront Expansion Pass, and available to purchase separately for $5.99 (regional pricing may vary). It is ready to download now Windows PC via Steam.

A new FREE Resistance Mode Mission - Uncle S.A.M. - has also been added as part of this week’s patch, and is available to all players. Your Squad must counter the KPA’s aerial superiority by deploying S.A.M. launchers, then take out their Air Force’s high command in a deadly strike… Any players returning to Homefront: The Revolution will also find that the recent ‘Performance Patch’ has massively improved the overall experience.

The Revolution has begun and most of Philadelphia is now under Resistance control, but as the fighting intensifies morale is being destroyed by KPA propaganda broadcasts from the captured Resistance leader Walker. Against all odds you must defy orders and attempt to rescue Walker before the Resistance silence him permanently….

 - Play as lone wolf Ethan Brady and defy resistance leadership to liberate Walker from the clutches of the KPA
 - Discover what happened to Walker after his capture and why he is broadcasting against the resistance
 - Cross into new areas of KPA occupied Philadelphia and risk your life for what many believe is a resistance traitor

Double XP - This Weekend!
Plus, alongside the release of our latest Resistance Mode mission, Uncle S.A.M, we will be offering double XP this weekend!

Take part in any mission between Friday 11th 12:01 PM until Monday 14th 12:01 PM.

Another small feature I wish they would add is an "I already own this" button like Amazon has in certain places.  There are lots of games it keeps recommending that I own on console, or Uplay, or Origin, or whatever. 

I don't want to say I'm "Not Interested" because they are games I like so don't want my data and recommendation algorithms messed with, but I don't want to keep seeing them recommended either.

Personally I'm not interested in anything beyond the $1 level, so I guess that's a steal for me.
