#13552049 Humble Megathread - Deep Silver - Capcom - Comics & Manga

Posted by Foxhack on 02 December 2016 - 07:08 PM

Perspective is everything, isn't it? I see lots of people are pissed, but I'm very happy with the bundle. Dragon's Dogma, The Escapists, The Flame in the Flood, and Mordheim were all on my wishlist. I've looked at The Escapists so many times when it has come up on sale, but kept holding out for the bundle.

 

The real surprise, to me, is all of the DLC they included with The Escapists. I get when they can advertise it like they are doing with Vermintide, but I thought the developer modus operandi was to hold out on the DLC and giveaway the base game. 

I'm pretty happy with the bundle, despite the F2P garbage included. Not sure why all the rage in the thread...

It's a fun game but it requires a lot of practice to be good, much like Rocket League was.

The difference (to me, anyway) is that even if you're inexperienced you can still contribute something: working a generator, unhooking someone, hell even just saying where the killer is chasing you.  Plus each survivor is scored separately so, although it's co-operative, it's not really a "team".  If you inexperienced as the killer, you really don't have anyone to answer to but yourself.  In Rocket League, if you suck you don't do much except blunder into a lucky shot once in a while (if you're not accidentally scoring against your own team) and generally feel like more of a liability.  Being terrible on your own is one thing and you can laugh at your own inept playing; being terrible and feeling like you're dragging a team down is less fun.

Greenmangaming had the Home front bundle for $17 before coupon so $15.xx after coupon without the need on any Madjoki shenanigans.

Homefront can become the new Far Cry while Far Cry becomes "Far Cry: Experience Historical Stuff".  Then Assassin's Creed can become about hacking networks in near-future cities and Watch_Dogs can be about fighting space dragons or something.

Depends on what you plan to do w/ the monitor. 
 
WAY more work-space on the screen, when not doing any gaming. 4K on a desktop here puts 1080p to shame here. This is just a whole another realm entirely.
 
About 4K & pricing - for what 1440p monitors have been w/ even off-name brands + lower-name brands (i.e. QNIX, BenQ, Acer, etc) at around $200-220 on sale, one could just go 4K w/ that Samsung 28'' TN panel and say "Screw it; I can downscale. I've got any resolution b/t 1080p and 4K here. I'll just crank AA up if need be + also sharpness settings on your monitor, if needed."
 
I can drive w/ my 970 some games at 4K, some can't. WWE 2K16 PC is fine here w/ 50-60FPS in-game w/ matches & 25-30FPS on the entrance sequences; and IMHO here you don't even need to turn AA here (not like there's much out in distance here normally anyways; this ain't an open-world game). 1080p was never a challenge for me on this 970 for most games - I can get easily 1080p60FPS at mostly High to Ultra settings. Dying Light runs like crap at 4K here at even Medium (20-35FPS), but runs just fine at 1440p (50-60FPS) on High.
 
I usually keep VSync Off b/c I want more frames + I can just use MSI Afterburner to impose caps anyways at my own will. Only really need VSync On if there's screen tearing, graphics weirdness, hit-detection goes out the window, physics go out the window, animation go wrong, and/or anything else goes wrong graphically.

I would have stuck with 1080p if I had a 970. Wouldn't even get a 1440p monitor for that. Might be worth running at 1440p with a GTX 1070 though.. 4k with a GTX 970 is crazy talk unless you're playing games that can run on a potato.

Why is everyone in such a hurry to buy 4k monitors?  Your vid cards are not going to be able to drive it well at native resolution.  And it won't look as nice at below native.  Don't frame rates matter? When you finally have a vid card that can push enough frames at 4k, there will certainly be better, cheaper 4k monitors.  I just don't get it.

The funniest thing about this BF so far is watching all the consolebros using 10% savings to justify buying a PS4 Pro. 

 

Consolebros:  PC gaming is too expensive, you have to constantly upgrade parts.  

 

Consolebros:  I will happily rebuy the same console I already own for those few upgraded parts!
