I'm about 99% sure that in this version LMG's move at the exact same speed as AR's (except the XR-2 which gets a mobility bonus).



Interesting. Will have to try it.

I wish I could use the LMGs... I just run around a lot and find the movement penalty to be too much.

The shooting is also good. I haven't used VATS at all and I used it extensively in Fallout 3 and a good 25% of the time in New Vegas.

Yup, I've been noticing this too. VATS comes in handy in certain situations, but otherwise it's playing very well as a FPS.

When I hit about ten hours in I was feeling very meh about the game, but now that I've hit about twenty hours I'm really enjoying it. However, I would say that part of a reason (maybe a big part of the reason) is the settlement activity. It gives a reason to go wandering around looking for fans and radios and other odd stuff.



I assume you guys are playing PC? The shooting on consoles is... bad.

I think I'm level 9, somewhere around a dozen hours in, and so far this game isn't really grabbing me.  I think at least partially because 90% of my time is just looting, worrying about loot, and emptying my bags. 

I don't particularly like the combat, it tends to feel bad whether I'm shooting something in real-time or using the VATS system.  It's like the worst feeling FPS in the world, so any time enemies show up I groan inwardly.

I also don't think that any of the base building stuff is very good, or has much of a point.


I'm right there with you. I think I'm level seven or eight and I don't fully understand why I'm playing. Agree with all of your points.

Yeah I'm really impressed so far. The map design is just... well after the last two COD games, going back to Treyarch maps just makes me very happy. Creative, colorful, and fun.

I actually even played two of the campaign missions and had fun with those, which might be the first time I've ever said that about a COD game.

I don't blame the coach, I don't fully blame Kap or the O-line, this all stems from York and Balke which caused the mass exodus.



Stems from, but the other three aren't blameless. Kap is probably the least to blame, but he's also played even worse than expected.

Quote from: Destructor on October 16, 2015, 05:14:24 AM

I bitched about this with my Surface Pro 3 (I own one and I love it), and I'm gonna bitch about this with the Surface 4:

OMGWTFBBQ does Microsoft rip the everfuckinglove you off with their 'upgrades' for their Surface lineup.

It costs $300 dollars, THREE HUNDRED FUCKING DOLLARS, to go from 4GB to 8GB of RAM and to go from a 128GB SSD to a 256GB SSD.

Did you know that 256GB SSD drives BY THEMSELVES cost on average 50 cents per GB, or about $128? And RAM costs next to nothing (seriously, 4GB is like $20-30 or so, if even). So for the AT MOST $100 upgrade (~$64 for the SSD upgrade, ~$40 for the RAM) Microsoft charges you $300 for.

And I thought Apple was bad.

Absolutely do not buy the i7 version. There is absolutely no use for it whatsoever unless you're going to be using say AutoCAD on it or rendering videos constantly. It is a complete and total waste of money, ESPECIALLY for the stupid-insane prices that Microsoft STILL charges.

Its pretty in line with Apple Macbook pricing, I think. I personally agree about the i7. The only time I ever had an i7 in my laptop was when work was footing the bill for a monster Macbook Pro. For my money, an i5 is plenty (and probably overkill, if we're honest).

Quote from: gangeli on October 16, 2015, 04:37:21 PM

Eh, apple charges $200 to go from a 128GB ssd to a 256GB model.

So, for an extra $100, you also get another 4 gig of ram.

Sounds like they are pretty much in line.



Yup.

Quote from: Canuck on October 16, 2015, 09:28:12 PM

My problem is the limits in customizing. Say for example I want an i7, but I want to keep the cost down and go for 128GB of RAM. Can't do it. Or maybe I want to stick with the M3 but I want a lot of memory to go with it. Can't do it.

The problem with customization is that to keep these things slick and integrated, Microsoft is probably soldering memory chips to the boards (just like Apple has done for years). Not to mention supply chain - Microsoft wants you to go into their store (online and virtual) and either walk out with a machine or have it on your doorstep in the matter of days. If you want customization, you aren't the market for the Surface Book. If you want probably the best made Windows laptop on the market, you are the market.

It's the first Windows machine I've wanted since the days where I lusted after Falcon-NW computing rigs. I've never thought of a Windows laptop as anything close to desirable from an aesthetic/build quality standpoint, but this thing looks like its going to change my mind... and this is coming from a guy who switched to Apple in 2007 and never looked back. For years my answer to the question "Best Windows laptop money can buy?" has always been "Macbook Pro running Windows." Might be different now.

I'd like to declare that 10/2 will be Taken War Friday. I've put the call out on OctopusOverlords. We're going to take the war to the Taken, which means doing Taken War: <blah> quests, Court of Oryx, and even Taken war story for those of us who haven't finished the main story mission yet. Let's shoot for 8:30pm EST again and see who shows up. We'll need to split up if odd numbers show up since everything except the raid and Crucible only allows a max of 3 people in the fireteam.

Taken War: <blah> quests are pretty quick to finish and definitely go faster with a fireteam.
Court of Oryx is a blast, is a good source of engrams, and also goes pretty quickly with a fireteam.
And Taken war story missions are always a good chance for those of us with alts to take them and help our fellow guardians who are doing the Taken story for the first time.

See you there.

I'm in. Will be there on the early side and hopefully will be 40 by then.

Fun game to start the season.

It's somewhat liberating to have literally zero positive expectations of your favorite team. No stress, just laughter.

It's like the Ericson days all over again Tongue

Or Nolan. I guess I had some level of hope for Singletary for that one fully year.

I had zero hope for Harbaugh's first year (and was wrong), so that was the most recent time I had this feeling.

Ya I had hopes for Ericson, and you were right to tell me how wrong I was on that one Tongue  Nolan was an idiot.  I did have hope for singletary, but he turned on not know what to do.  Harbaugh I bought in on day one, and I still think it was a horrible move to dump him over ego.  Quickly they forget how it was.  Well, they're about to be reminded. (no offense to our newest coach)

Yeah I knew Harbaugh would be good, I just assumed he was going to struggle in his first year, especially because a) there was the lockout that prevented any summer coaching and b) he had Alex Smith as his starting QB.

I was very wrong. It was a glorious year.

And now we're here.

Just like at Qt3, it amazes me how little all the people on these forums don't like the social aspect of games.

I would say outside of RPGs, Assassins Creed+clones, or Uncharted+clones, the majority of my gaming time is spent competitively online. It's probably 90% of my time. I like playing MP in the sense that humans are better competition than AI, but I have zero interest in interacting with anyone I shoot/shoots at me or scores/scores on me. Basically I treat online MP as games with really good AI.

Interesting, but not surprising results for me:



Some lines that amused be and are pretty accurate:

Destruction 97%: "They enjoy games with lots of guns and explosives. They gravitate towards titles like Call of Duty and Battlefield. And if they accidentally find themselves in games like The Sims, they are the ones who figure out innovative ways to get their Sims killed." SURE DO

Challenge 3%: "These gamers play at the highest difficulty settings and donít mind failing missions repeatedly in games like Dark Souls because they know itís the only way theyíll master the game. They want gameplay that constantly challenges them." SURE DON'T

Completion 1%: "For gamers who score high on Customization, this may mean collecting costumes and mounts in games like World of Warcraft." SOUNDS TERRIBLE

Community 2%: "For them, games are an integral part of maintaining their social network." NOPEDOTCOM

Played maybe a half hour of the beta last night and enjoyed it. Games were pretty lag free. Time to kill was VERY fast though, so not sure if its going to be to anyone's liking who was hoping for different.

I much prefer this movement to the Exo movement of CODAW since people aren't just jumping to the top of the screen when you start shooting them. I am also terrible at wall running. If I wall run, I die. I think 1/3 of my deaths last night were environmental.

Its also weird to go back to Treyarch spawns (which are relatively static) after a few years of the crazy dynamic spawns of the other two COD developers. I think its better, but its going to take some getting used to.

Overall, I had fun. Happy with that.

so in this future world where everyone has super high reflexes, nobody can react to being under fire?  you're grasping here.

If you can actually run up a wall or slide in response to taking fire and not die doing so, lemme know.  I doubt it since every previous COD you are dead no matter what you do barring luck/lag.  I'd be fine with having the ability to boost up in the air to avoid fire too, or turn invisible and dart away, all things we don't do in real life.  The point was that there is nothing you can do in COD once you know you are tkaing fire before you die.  Even when you have a ballistic shield in COD, you can't even raise it before you die due to the ttk vs lag.

Man, who pissed in your cheerios?

The point is they designed this game for the soldiers to constantly be in motion, so it makes more sense to run up a wall or slide through a doorway when faced with fire then to stop and hit the ground. You can also float in the air and thrust in a direction to avoid fire.
nobody pissed in my anything, it just seems like you aren't even reading what I post that's all.  I never said anything about stopping or hitting hte ground.  I was talking about being able to react to coming under fire.  You'll also notice that in the video you posted not one person being shot at survives long enough to go up a wall, jump away, or break line of sight.  Even with this super high mobility, it's irrelevant.  See first, shoot, dead.

I'm pretty sure that's normal for COD (or at least all of the ones I've played since Black Ops 2). It seems they tune to shoot first and win (so long as you can hold aim).

I actually like that, but I can certainly understand why some don't.

This is a sad liberal, left leaning, heavy handed pig sty that I'm ready to be banned from.  In some ways Ron should actually thank me as my banned/moved threads have as many views as any.

Poking the pigs is how I honestly have thought of it the past 3 years. 

You delusional fools.  You'll have conversations with your grandkids discussing what the hell happened to our Country, maybe still not realizing you lead to the fall. 

Ignorance at it's sad best.  Anyone that thinks Obama has been anything but a failure is an absolute brain dead chimp (not racist you PC idiots).    Not even a democrat vs republican thing at all, a good vs ignorant evil thing.  I'd not hire this piss-ant fool of a president to do anything, much less run the most powerful country on earth.   This tool only order flags to be taken to half staff today, yet posted a rainbow whitehouse  immediately.  The chickens have and will continue to come home to roost (quote from your President's "Pastor", which you all likely forgot, as you ignored it when you voted for this lunatic).
