121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mad Max - open world game from Avalanche on: December 16, 2015, 10:12:36 PM
I didn't complete the game as I found that eventually the missions because somewhat repetitive, but also because I was leaving on a month long trip and knowing myself, I knew that when I came home it would be hard to get interested in it again. Also I topped out on a lot of attributes and I felt that there wasn't enough story to keep me playing.

That being said, I played it a solid forty hours, which is a lot for me. While the missions eventually did get a feeling of sameness to them, the gameplay is really lots and lots of fun. The driving mechanics are great, the terrain varied and quite extensive and the combat a lot of fun, both driving and on foot. It also ran smooth with great FPS, no crashes and no bugs or glitches worth speaking of. Seriously, the gameplay was a blast.

I can't comment as to whether it's worth the full price as seen on Steam right now, that's really up to each individual buyer. I got it on GMG for about $40 and feel I absolutely got my money's worth.

Patch 1.02 Now Live on PC!

Quote
I'm pleased to let you know that the 1.02 patch we announced earlier today is now live, ahead of the anticipated Friday date.

In the 1.02 patch (132.1MB), you can expect:

    Significantly improved loading times
    Optimizations to online stats
    General stability fixes
    Fixed an issue related to challenges, wherein vehicles sometimes disappeared when starting a challenge
    Fixed issues related to screen resizing and closing the game window before the game has fully started up


To those of you still having issues, rest assured we are working hard to alleviate these, and are listening very closely to everything thatís being said.

While the patch will improve performance on the whole, weíve listened to some of the other concerns raised about the game and put together a little list of points which might alleviate these issues:

UNSKIPPABLE CUTSCENES
You can skip cutscenes, in fact Ė all you need to do is hold B on your gamepad, or hit ĎSkipí from the pause menu.

NO SPRINT BUTTON
This isnít an oversight; itís very much intended. Our designerís intent was to encourage you to use Ricoís unique grapple to move around Medici far quicker than his legs would allow, as well as giving you the ability to traverse vertically.

NO CROUCH
Rico doesnít hide. Getting him up in the air is our version of the cover mechanic. Rico is far more deadly in the skies, than pinned behind a container on the ground.

FINDING THE LAST CHAOS OBJECT
While thereís no mini-map to help you liberate bases and towns, you can always bring up your map to help find Chaos objects. When youíre down to the last few objects in any given settlement, an approximate location for these will be displayed on the map.

For more hints and tips for improving your experience and really getting the most out of the game, check out our Hints and Tips thread, and feel free to add your own.

Again, a huge thanks for your support over the past week, and look out for more news soon. If thereís any changes to the patch between now and Friday, weíll let you know here.

If you are still encountering any issues following the patch, please contact our Customer Support EU [support.eu.square-enix.com] or Customer Support NA [support.na.square-enix.com]

So I'm going back to playing and see if this fixed the CTD issues I've been having.
123  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 11, 2015, 01:36:31 AM
Yeah, I have about twelve hours in it now. I have a rig that meets the recommended specs but to keep it at a solid 60 fps I have to run at 1280x720. And every time I really start to enjoy some part of the game it crashes and even if I don't lose a lot of progression the game restarts me at a base and not where I was.

You shouldn't have to give up your power armor, though, I used it through the whole game.  I think I had about 8 of them by the end of the game.  I even got a full X-01 from a building and fully upgraded it.  Unless you had some other special power armor?

Nope, no special armor, I just love my X-01 armor.

Holy smokes, that's completely different than the way I approached the end game. Guess I'll have to reload those saves I have and try a different ending... I'm not going to give up my power armor though, I'm in love with it eek

Since I was siding with the Railroad I'm not sure what else I can really do at this point, as I've completed a bunch of Institute missions.  I'm kind of at the point where I either side with the Institute or piss them off, so...I'm not sure what else to do.   icon_frown icon_mad

I completed the game on the BoS quest thread and it was a lot of fun. However, I've saved my save games so I could go back and do the Institute path. I'd be interested in hearing whether folks like that option. So go ahead, viva la Institute!

The big difference to me is that Blood Dragon was a tight $15 6-hour package, this is being sold as a full $60 "new" game.

Oops, you're right, I hadn't seen that they had arrived at a price yet. I don't know if this is the kind of content, no matter what the size of the package ( Roll Eyes) for which I am willing to part with that much money.

Not my kind of game but it is interesting.

Well, it looks like a far cry game.  Hunting, collecting and crafting with ranged and melee combat with a decent stealth system.  I would be feeling more like getting it were it not for the glut of other open world games and if it felt more than a mod for FC4.

Well, Blood Dragon was essentially a massive mod to FC3, so I won't be dissuaded if Primal is just a huge FC4 mod, as long as the price point is OK.

Ah, there's the irony, I just finished played after completing the game via the BoS option. Level 50, 131 hours on Steam. I guess I can fire it up and see if it all goes kablooie.

Surprised.  6 pages of comments, for Fallout 4.  Who would have thought?
And.. A fair number are negative leaning. 

I think maybe because the game tends to lean towards the PC gamer due to the ability to mod. I also post on the Octopus Overlords PC Games forum and over there the FO4 thread is up to 46 pages.
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 02, 2015, 07:57:42 AM
I surprised myself by playing another six hours myself. I'm still running at 1280x720 on the PC to get 60fps, but it's not really a problem for me on my 24" monitor. The game was fun, although having a couple crash to desktops didn't help. As one reviewer said, this is the kind of game that after a while you pick up for an hour or two, but it's not really deep or intriguing. I'm happy with my decision to buy it, but I would have rather got it on sale in a couple of months when they have patched the major issues.
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 01, 2015, 07:22:32 PM
And the latest irritation is the periodic warning messages like these:

and then...

It needs the connection so it can upload your records, like longest motorcycle ride on one wheel or longest freefall. And it is constantly popping up messages like the one on the right of the screen:

Every time someone beats your record, you get a pop-up. Every time you set a record, you get a pop-up. And apparently you can't turn off these messages unless you turn off all HUD items.

And there is no way to make it go offline as an option.

That's it, I'm giving up till they fix some of this nonsense. I'm really recommending that folks pass on this till it's decently updated.

My game is performing pretty poorly on a 760 GTX, so I think I'll be lowering some graphics options.  I'm not willing to run resolution lower than my native 1920 x 1200, so I'm guessing anti-aliasing and some other fanciness will be going down a bit. 

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the game still looks pretty nice at 1280x720 on my native 1920x1200 monitor, but then I'm old and the eyesight is going anyway icon_wink
139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 01, 2015, 07:07:17 AM
I fiddled with the graphics settings and finally just went with what the game recommended:




You'll notice that I lowered my screen res to 1280x720. Well, at least it's a stable 60 fps now Roll Eyes
140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 01, 2015, 05:58:54 AM
OK, just put in a couple of hours on this and... well, it's different from Just Cause 2. It uses checkpoint saves with no option to have multiple saves, which you could do in JC2. I don't know how I feel about that.

Running on a PC, with these specs: Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 780 3GB, Win7 64bit, 480GB SSD main drive. Using the Steam FPS overlay, I had to tinker with the graphics settings to get a decent frame rate. Most of the time it's near 60, but driving or with a lot of action going on, it drops down, but no lower than 30. I might have to fiddle with the settings if it starts to bother me too much. Here are my current settings (click to enlarge):




Combat is easier than in JC2. Well, shooting individual soldiers is easier, but you start taking damage faster when being shot at, so stand up gunfights aren't worth it. Thankfully, with the new, better grapple system that allows multiple grappling, getting rid of enemy soldiers is as easy as grappling them, then attaching them to something else (a wall, another soldier, an explosive barrel) and triggering the grapple cable to retract.

Some folks have reported long load times, but I haven't seen it. Of course, between 16GB of RAM and an SSD, I'm probably pretty well off when it comes to loading all that detail.

One thing they have fixed since JC2; you don't need money anymore. In JC2 you had to pay for more ammo, guns, vehicles, everything. Now there is a system where you get supply drops of items which you have unlocked by progressing in the game and completing various races and other competitions. I'm not sure about how all of it works, but I did hate that money stuff in JC2.

Driving seems a bit sloppy compared to JC2, especially with motorbikes. Still, it's not unacceptable.

Two hours is pretty early in a game to give a comprehensive opinion, but here are my general impressions. This is not a deep game. Plot is paper thin, but I didn't go into it thinking it would be anything different. The general mayhem you can cause is a lot of fun and it's pretty much the core of the game. I haven't had any glitches so far, but there are reports of CTDs and clipping issues.

There have been some negative mainstream reviews, but they sound to me like the same folks who bad mouthed Mad Max because it wasn't Shakespeare.

Frankly, unless you're really (like me) a huge fan of JC2, I'd hold off and look at some reviews and impressions before committing. And be sure to look for specifics regarding your rig and the specs.

For me the question should be, has anyone used the power armor?  I only used it at the beginning of the game where they tell you to.  After that it sits in the first settlement, and since then I've been all man

I've used it for a couple of really tough missions near the coast, but otherwise I prefer to leave it off. It costs quite a lot of resources to repair. However, even the power armor skeleton is useful. I'm about 70 hours into the campaign and there have been missions that would have been a lot easier with the power armor, but so far I'm enjoying the challenge.

It seems there's not a thread for this game yet and it releases in five days. I've pre-ordered it through Steam, based upon what I've seen in previews and how much I enjoyed JC2. I know a lot of folks might be busy with Fallout 4 or other games and so haven't thought about JC3, so I'll give it a go and post my impressions here.

It's available for pre-load right now, a whopping 38.5GBs, and download is in progress.

I'm just guessing on the PS4 and XB1, but I'm assuming it's launching on those two platforms as well.
150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: November 26, 2015, 09:28:58 PM
I played about an hour of the beta on the PC, first with several solo Tango Hunts, then in two games (best of four rounds, except will do a fifth round as a tie-breaker) of MP. Actually kind of fun. You face off as five versus five teams, one attacking, one defending. The attackers have a thirty second period at the start of a round to scout the location with little rolling cameras, which the defenders can destroy if they see them.

During this time the defenders can barricade doors, windows and some openings. They can lay down barbed wire, which acts to slow down the person and also makes noise, which tags the person to the other side. You can also set charges.

Once the combat starts, the attackers have five (I think it's always five) minutes to disarm the bomb or find  the biohazard weapon or whatever. The defenders can move around the location and in some cases (I don't know how this works) also leave and go outside a bit to slow down the attackers. The round plays out as the attackers try to find the objective and kill the defenders while the defenders try to avoid this.

Upgrades are available through experience (or buying DLC I think) that gives better weapons, cooler gadgets and pretty uniforms. Ultimately however, I don't know if it's got a long term appeal for me. It's kind of a one trick pony.

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

Take my various suits off all the time.   Really, only use them when assaulting a very hard target .  I have about 18 cores in various stages of use.   

I found the X-01 armor and havent removed it yet.  Got a bunch of cores and nuclear lvl 2 with the 50% increase in core life so I think im good for a while. 

I went about 80 hours in the game and hardly ever wore the suit. Then I came across a couple of quests where I absolutely needed it. However, having my normal armor on under the armor suit gave me too little weight margin, so I stored my non-suit armor and now just go around in the power suit. Underneath I wear a suit that give me +3 CHR and a hat that adds one more, so anything I think I'm going to be involved in any negotiating I leave the power armor and deal with the negotiations then it's back into the suit. I might at some point switch back when I'm back towards the center and northwest parts of the map where the power armor isn't necessary.

So I'm 85 hours in and haven't even begun to see the end of the gameplay. I'm at level 37 and I could see playing another 30-50 hours easy.

Article from Rock, Paper, Shotgun: How Is Assassinís Creed Syndicateís PC Port?

Quote
Review code for the PC version of Assassinís Creed Syndicate [official site] activated this evening and Iíve spent the hours since playing through the opening sections and fiddling with various settings to see how it all holds together. In short, it runs beautifully and looks a treat. Details and early thoughts about my trip to the Big Smoke are below.

and...

Quote
No glitches yet, though. Again, this is all early days but the port certainly isnít an omnishambles. And, so far, the game is extremely promising to boot. Itís not a revolution by any means and if youíve played an Assassinís Creed game before, Iím not sure itís going to surprise. Itís probably fair to say itís unlikely to convert anyone who has played one of the series before and hasnít found anything to like, but if this is as lean and efficient a take on the formula as these first hours suggest, it might be a winner for the rest of us.
155  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Assassin's Creed Syndicate on: November 18, 2015, 02:28:04 AM
So Green Man Gaming just sent me an email and among the offers is 33% off the PC version of ACS, due out this Thursday. I was going to hold off till I saw some PC reviews, but saving $20 USD for a game I'm probably going to get anyway sounds decent. I do have a question for the folks playing it on console; how long in hours is the main campaign plus a reasonable number of side quests? Twenty hours, forty hours, or depends...?

Bethesda's massive open-world games often come with caveats, with bugs, glitches and performance hitches being the most common trade-offs. We've known for a while now that Fallout 4 has performance disparities between consoles and PC, but now users have spotted a quest bug that will crash the game across all platforms.

The bug was first reported on the Bethsoft Forums a day after the game came out, and is repeatable across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. According to the post, the glitch is quite nebulous and hard to pinpoint. The most definite reports pinpoint the Monsignor Plaza and the C.I.T. Ruins as the exterior environments that trigger the crash, along with the Hunter/Hunted questline and some bits of the Boston After Dark quest path. Reports indicate that having the Nick Valentine quest Unlikely Valentine active will trigger the crash when visiting aforementioned areas.

Users are reporting various effects including simple crashes to desktop on PC and error messages on console, and even the more extreme corrupted saved data files. PC users are able to use Fallout 4's console commands to reset the affected quests via codes, so if you're having troubles be sure to scan the forum posts.

The bug seems to be pretty huge and has afflicted many users, who are sharing stories and trying to pinpoint the exact nature of the glitch. Hopefully Bethesda will step in with an official fix soon. For now be sure to check the forums as well as this handy troubleshooting checklist to attempt a fix.

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 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.

Right now I'm just hoping this can entertain me until Just Cause 3 comes out in a couple weeks, but so far it's barely doing the job.

I'm at twenty hours in game (24 according to Steam). I was feeling a bit like this at a dozen hours in. It does get better, with more complex quests.

I too am awaiting Just Cause 3 as well. I think I can stretch FO4 for three weeks.

About 10-11 hours in and I just hit lvl 11.  Met the BoS and assisted them but I haven't decided if I will join them as he makes it pretty explicit you'll be working for them and I'm not sure I want to give up on the Minute Men storyline.  

Yipes, I didn't realize joining the BoS would cut off the Minute Men story line. Didn't want to do that... tear
