Getting my first headshot through a wall was one of my most epic gaming moments in quite a while. I'm sure in other games I've shot enemies in the head through objects, but the context around it in Siege is what makes the difference. It started out with a terrorist initiating the shootout through the wall with his shotgun, when he decided to run to the door of the room I was in I started shooting at where I imagined his body would be and nailed him right in the head. The red X that pops up when you get a headshot is perfect.

Just got a new gtx 980 to go with my 4K monitor so I get Syndicate for .99. Looking forward to it. Enjoy the series. Haven't played Unity yet.

Just a tip - the only graphics setting that gives me issues is AA. I had to turn AA down to FXAA, one notch down from MSAA + FXAA, to get a smooth framerate. Everything else was maxed and at 1440p.
44  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS2 emulation on the PS4 is an exciting prospect on: November 20, 2015, 05:46:58 PM
When I first heard that Star Wars games from the PS2 era were included with the PS4 version of Battlefront, I didn't think much of it. Then I watched this video and now I'm genuinely excited about the prospect of playing emulated PS2 games. The SW games look great and run really well at an upscaled resolution and increased framerate. Outside of official remasters this could be a great opportunity to replay some PS2 classics.
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Assassin's Creed Syndicate on: November 20, 2015, 05:40:51 PM
I was having some framerate issues at first but once I turned down the anti-aliasing from MSAA + FXAA to just FXAA it became rock solid - all settings maxed at 1440p. AA issues aside this looks like a fantastic port job.

Any more impressions on this?

I'm a big fan of the Halo series but after playing about an hour or so of Halo 5's campaign I'm not sure I like it. My friend who plays pretty much every shooter also doesn't like it. It just isn't fun so far and I don't like the group stuff. I'm hoping after I play more I'll warm up to it.

Uplay has been revamped, if you buy the game in Steam then Uplay will boot minimized and not bug you.

51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So are the Steam forums always filled with so many immature people? on: October 29, 2015, 05:08:08 PM
Definitely stick to smaller communities, like Tilt suggested. And when it comes to online games, find a good guild or team and don't socialize too much outside of it. It's sad to say, but video games are especially attractive to a particular type of person - the less educated and less accomplished. Some of this is simply due to age - I was a dumb teenager saying stupid things online at one point. But a lot of the problem stems from the fact that people are, literally, idiots. They don't have the same refinements that come from going to college or working in a professional environment. Additionally, internet is a bastion for certain personality types - the anti-social and the cynical. Naturally, because who would want to be around them? So, even if a person isn't doing anything overtly offensive, there's a lot of insidious rhetoric in the stuff they're saying.


So, I stick to places like GT and Qt3 and avoid places like NeoGAF, Steam forums, and comment sections.

The PC version is finally back on sale (see patch notes), but there's still a way to go until it's considered not a shitty port. For example, it still doesn't take advantage of multiple video cards, which is what I'm waiting for before I play the game.

I really need to stop looking for data pads. Kills the game (just like in every other fps, when will I learn?)

This is me, too.

In most games, I find I miss all the spectacular set-pieces.  I am looking behind a rock when I hear a music change or a loud noise or someone saying, "Wow, did you ever think you'd see such a thing?"  By the time I turn around, it's over.

I find this to be a common issue in games. I'm trying to be thorough but the game wants to usher me forward through its scripted sequences.

Bugs and apps crashing is OK, the purpose of the beta is to iron those out. It should be bug-free upon official release.

I also fail to see how the new UI is a huge improvement over the old one.

That's concerning. I was very much looking forward to an improved UI.

How long have you had the new UI on your machine, YK?

65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Assassin's Creed Syndicate on: October 26, 2015, 05:04:12 PM
I've put around 10 hours into the game so far and I'm really enjoying the story and setting. I didn't play Unity so the last AC game I played was Black Flag. My immediate gripe is that the game has a lot of odd behavior. NPCs disappearing and or bugging out, clipping through objects, people disappearing, and so on. I don't remember it being so prevalent in BF. Or it might just be that the last string of open world games I've played, like The Witcher 3 and MGS5, are cleaner. Anyhow, it gives it a cheaply made feeling that can be a bit of a turn off. The other thing I'm not too fancy for is the framerate, which is solid when not around crowds but dips when you are. The dips aren't major but definitely noticeable, and you do run through crowds quite a bit.

As I mentioned, the setting, i.e. 19th century London, is gorgeous. It's everything I hoped it would be and more, in fact. If it's one thing Ubisoft always gets right, it's the worlds they build. I love running through the city, I don't even bother with fast travel or other modes of transportation outside of running and the rope because it's a joy to take everything in. And there's still fun to be had assassinating people and climbing buildings, even though it feels extremely familiar at this point. The main characters, Evie and Jacob, as well as the supporting cast, are all interesting and likable. The story itself is very coherent - London is corrupt to the core and you aim to take it back.

The main gameplay supplemented by side quests, as usual, but what I'm really enjoying is building up my gang, the Rooks, and gaining new territory. You basically challenge rival gangs and once you defeat them you take over their territory. Opening new territory installs your Rooks, who you can call upon to help you if you see them around, and opens up the area for side quests and collecting.

I plan to spend a lot of time with the game this weekend and I'll post more impressions. So far this is a solid title... nothing groundbreaking, but fun nonetheless.

67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: October 23, 2015, 10:14:19 PM
Very interesting. Microsoft's primary measure of success with the Xbox is Xbox Live engagement now, rather than shipped console numbers. So they consider themselves more akin to Steam, as a service provider, than a box like PS4 and Wii. My initial reaction was that this is MS's way of changing the conversation from "PS4 is outselling XB1" to "The Xbox platform is growing", but I think it's indicative of the long-term direction Xbox... which is basically the same direction as Windows 10.

I'm not sure about you all, but suddenly the Xbox strategy just snapped into focus for me.

69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How long do you give a game to capture your interest? on: October 23, 2015, 07:44:52 PM
It depends on the game. If it's a content-oriented game (focus on story and world) I'll give it more time, probably 4-5 hours before I pass judgement. If it's gameplay oriented game (Sim City, Street Fighter), probably 2 hours.

I just started playing tonight and so far I like it. The graphics are pretty and the framerate is smooth, I haven't experienced technical issues, either. The mechanics haven't changed much, and in fact after playing MGS5 they feel kinda clunky, but overall the controls are tight enough for you to parkour and assassinate. I'm really digging the world and the atmosphere, Victorian London is an awesome setting. Evie, the female assassin, is a badass!

Did you play Unity and if so how does it compare to Unity? (I hated Unity, but loved AC IV)

I skipped Unity so my closest point of comparison is AC IV: Black Flag. If your love for AC IV hinged heavily on naval combat, the horse carriage stuff in Syndicate won't satisfy you. But if you were into IV for the characters, the story, the action, the exploration, etc., you'll enjoy Syndicate.

The ďAdam Jensen 2.0Ē trailer, focuses on Jensenís struggle to reconcile both sides of this conflict, as he is basically a living weapon thanks to all of his augmentations. The video also shows off some of the new weapons and abilities players will have at their disposal depending on how they choose to play through the game.

It's OK if Nintendo wants to innovate. Their innovations brought us analog sticks and controller vibration (even if they weren't the first do it, they at least made it a standard), among other things. But third parties need to feel welcomed too and that's only going to happen if the hardware is powerful enough, the software and network architecture is familiar, and the default controller works well with other developer's games. We're all hoping that Nintendo finally realizes this and it would be truly great if they could figure out how to innovate within those guidelines.

With Black Friday a bit more than a month away, the leaks are starting to roll in.

Today's big leak is of the Dell Home and Home Office 2015 Black Friday Ad, which includes a $300 Xbox One Fallout 4 bundle, ...

That's a really interesting way to experience this game... have you done this with any others?
