So for reasons I can't begin to explain, I decided to click the button and move to Windows 10.

I have to say...I'm pleasantly surprised.  Everything has worked so far.  It feels like Windows 7 with a fresh coat of paint, a new engine for some additional speed, and some of the better parts of 8.   Nothing has had problems running.  Anyone else take the dive and have any experience on the gaming side?

I did the same and agree with the sentiment of " feels like Windows 7 with a fresh coat of paint, a new engine, and some of the better parts of 8" but for speed I am not certain.  I am playing Witcher 3 and have noticed that my GTX 770 is performing slower than in 7.  Not sure if they screwed something up in the 10 driver, and this is the only game I have played, but I am getting anywhere from 5 - 10 FPS lower in 10 in this game at this point.

I felt that way a bit in DA:I since the last was so linear, but man, compared to Witcher 3 it's nothing.

I found an ini tweak for the PC version that greatly improved responsiveness. I'm kind of flabbergasted that it wasn't the default setting, as it really is a huge improvement. I'm guessing the PS4 version is the same as the default PC setting.

Please share.

It must be resolution. I didn't notice you were at a lower resolution.

Is that after today's patch?  I have a 4 gb 770 and cannot play at max with hairworks and really get much better than 30 fps.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 22, 2015, 04:40:44 AM
I have a 770 4 GB but still feel it runs pretty poorly.  I get a lot of tearing and oddly enough ultra/high settings play better than low/medium.  I simply think it wasn't ready for prime time on the PC.

I don't even know how to pick out a decent one.  I'd rather buy a cheap one until I got to the point of knowing what I was doing, assuming I got that far before giving up.  But, I've heard that going too cheap can leave you regretting it as well since you'll have to re-tune the guitar after every song

My advice is always the same in this matter, you will not know what guitar suits you until you know how to play what you want to play.  Even then, things can change.  With that in mind, I would recommend a cheap guitar - although I am not sure what you consider cheap for an instrument.  Regardless, a cheap one that will stay in tune shouldn't be an issue to find.  Look used at a local music shop.  You should be able to get a cheap one that fits the stays in tune for a decent play length (a lot of musicians re-tune every three or so songs although they have heavy picking attacks) for 1-200 dollars.  I would also recommend asking musician friends if they have a beater that they will loan you.  You might be surprised in that department.  Anyway, I have recommended this software to several people interested in learning and even getting better at guitar but none have taken it up.  I honestly think they are unnecessarily about the difficulty - oddly enough especially the ones who have played for years but aren't super knowledgeable or experience.  I think they aren't really interested in seeing what could be improved upon.

I'm stuck in the "waiting for the patch to fix everything to justify A LOT of time with a game that's worth it" holding pattern on PC.  Anyone else going through the same?

I'm afraid the forum effect is becoming too strong on for this one...  I've only ever beaten a few RPGs to begin with. Including a few Zelda's, Secret of Mana and I played WOW for one month and then quit because it felt a little like crack cocaine.

I'll warn you that I am overwhelmed with it.  I don't quite have the steady blocks of gaming time I used to have so I get 1.5 - 2 hours with it.  I think I will never finish it at this rate and stop playing somewhere in the middle.  That feeling makes it hard to load up at night so it's a self fulfilling thing at the moment.  I do really like RPGs, so at some point I'll probably just start binging it on the weekend.

I like most of what they did with the character creator, except the hair.  Yikes.  There are so few hair options, and they are the same options for male and female.  It would've been cool to have some crazier hair styles, maybe some mohawks or other interesting options.    

    

Tell me about it.  They did away with my always chosen Brad Pitt Legends of the Fall long hair!

Is there any indication as to quest rewards (XP, items, power, etc.)?  Part of my problem is that I keep completing all these quests that seem to just have random benefits.  I have no way to prioritize the order that I'm going to complete these 3,205 quests because none of them give me any clue as to what I get out of it.  Feels like I'm just randomly doing whatever happens to be closest instead of progressing with any sort of plan.
I don't think so,  but so far I don't mind that.

I can't seem to find where I can see enemy difficulty.  I know they are supposed to be color coded but I don't see where.  I was guessing name, but I haven't noticed it.

also ran into a Rift with a very high level demon at least for the area I'm in

Is that the rift around the horse area?  If so, my party died several times to the point of frustration.  That's when I figured I must have wandered too far, although the horse quest is one of the first two you get.  I guess the feeling this is more like an elder scrolls would be accurate.

I was hoping to recreate my dual wielding male city elf from DA:Origins, but I can't for the life of me make a decent looking male elf in DA:I.  They all look so f'ng weird and goofy when they first step out into the light of day.  They're like horrible lab creations gone awry.  I've had a couple of immediate "nopes" during the first cutscene and then exit to menu.  I did create a cool looking human and dwarf, so I'll probably go with one of those.   

I agree that the male elf art is bizarre.  Most remind me of Nosferatu.

I did update the drivers.  Didn't really play much prior to that so I'm not sure if I saw a boost.

all the gameplay and exploration sections run at a solid 60 fps on Ultra-everything

What hardware do you have?  I have a i5 2400 with a GTX 770 card and 8 GB of ram.  I am not seeing 60 FPS on Ultra everything at all.  I have to knock shadows to Medium and turn off the MM something antialiasing while setting the other AA to low to get around 60 FPS in non open areas.  In the Hinterlands I get about 30-40 while battles are going.  I honestly thought my hardware would do better with the game.

So you used the server mode of launching it?  Anything peculiar or risky?  Any tips?

The food would be the biggest concern.   Kim Chi smells vile and I think you have to cook it in house in order to activate the VPN connection.

Well, then, I'm in luck!  I love Kim Chi!

I guess logging in using a random VPN server makes me a bit nervous...Not sure what real security threat it poses though - or how random the servers are that I would be using...
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: November 17, 2014, 06:30:54 PM
...so...Considering it is 80 some hours long I might want to get started early smile  I have read of people using a VPN client to connect to somewhere in S. Korea and then launch the Origin application.  Apparently it allows you to play now as it thinks it's midnight there.  Anyone have any experience with this sort of trickery?  Any concerns?

Cool.  What are the odds of a 10 PST unlock release?

Actually 9pm Pacific, it's releasing at midnight on the East Coast, for example here's the Xbox announcement:

http://store.xbox.com/en-US/Xbox-One/Games/Dragon-Age-Inquisition-Preorder/9b2f2fdc-984c-4357-a63b-20598e71efaf

Yeah, my math was off there.  If it's 9 pm, I'm in for the Origin purchase.

So have any reviews mentioned how the ending is handled?  I am very much a person who won’t bother with a game if it doesn’t have a satisfying conclusion.  I am really hoping to a return to DA1 form here vs the ME debacle.

IGN said it didn't feel overall complete.  That you care for the characters a lot but that not the reviewer didn't feel the end boss or whatnot was that significant.  I didn't read too in depth as I was avoiding spoilers so I could be off.  That was my impression of what the reviewer was criticizing.

Drat.  This isn't on steam and I haven't used Origin before.  I don't like having digital purchases with too many distro. companies.  Out of curiosity, how has everyone's experience with Origin been (if any)?  Also, will I get the game at midnight EST (being PST that would be a motivating factor towards digital over hard copy).

Honest question: game any good? I thought we had some enthusiasts here, but I've heard nothing about it.

I would normally pick up Madden, but with my lack of my next gen console purchase and EA's lack of releasing it for the PC, I have nothing.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (08/25) on: August 26, 2014, 03:52:33 PM
Out of curiosity, with PC's becoming in line with the competitive advantages of a console (we can use TV's, can use controllers) why are sports games like Madden not released on PC?  If available on Steam, I would consider buying Madden 15.

I have yet to be scared in a game, so I really want a PC version of this playable trailer.  From the reactions, it sounds legit.

I created two characters a warrior and rogue but didn't see a way to add the pet pal trait.  Where did I miss it?  I looked under skills and couldn't find it.  Although, I really couldn't find any useless skills.  It seemed like my characters needed what they were default assigned.

Thinking about it more, I think it's the sci-fi setting.  When it comes to movies and books, Sci-Fi in general is not my genre.  I would go as far as to say that I generally dislike Sci-Fi.  So there is that.  I did like the Space Quest game though, so I dunno why this one didn't appeal to me. 

There is supposed to be a second half released at some point, right?  Or am I misremembering that?

The problem is that veteran gamers have a very hard (if not impossible) time getting impressed by adventure games after all these years.

That may be true but I liked The Cat Lady and still play old Sierra games that I think would be considered bad like Phantasmagoria and Gabriel Knight 2.

so, general consensus on this one?  Steam has this for a flash sale at $8.49 today. 
I quit half way through.  It just didn't grab me and I am an adventure game fan.

I leveled the Warlock to 20 and was surprised at how beneficial the draw a card at the sacrifice of health was.  Seems to be a pretty interesting class.
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: When do you buy games? on: April 30, 2014, 08:33:56 PM
It's all over the place thanks to Steam.  With that option it makes it easier to impulse buy an older title.  Back in the EB days, it was day one for me. 
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: April 16, 2014, 03:31:58 PM
I installed this during the weekend while waiting for my D3 people to show up and am addicted to it.  I don't really know what I am doing deck wise but found a guide for a starter Mage deck and am actually winning some games.  I am afraid to alter it with new cards though as it appears to work sometimes.

I think it's ridiculous, but you are certainly entitled to your opinion
I kinda agree with wonderplug.  As you are an editor of this site I find you comments entirely unprofessional.

As an observer, I don't think the comments are unprofessional at all.  Any site can dictate it's voice and the audience can decide to visit the site or not.  The voice can be decided to be jerks, and that would make jerk comments professional, actually.  That being said, I just don't see how the quotes are insulting in anyway really.
