They have a few AC games on sale also...  Black Flag gold $7.50 and AC II Gold $5

DA:I GOTY is $24 (40% off) in the UPlay shop.

 

For those that don't own anything DA:I at all - seems like a decent deal, since those DLC's aren't usually super-cheap.

Personally, I loved DA:I [base-game]. Don't have any of the DLC's yet.

I'm trying to start up the Division beta and I keep on gettin application error 0xc000007b and it won't load up. Anyone else have this problem before and know a fix?

Did you Google that hex-error?

 

A bunch of games have that issue: that's a common Microsoft package issue w/ games. Might want to check DirectX, Microsoft NET Framework, Visual C++ Packages, and things of that sort.

 

Good luck.

Fallout 4 (PC) thoughts. 

 

So, last two days or so, I'm in the 10 hour ballpark of FO4. Not sure what to make out of the game and all, though. Some changes, seem for the better. Some, not sure that I like at all. Some...well, I'm not so sure at all.

 

This is the best shooting combat ever in a Bethesda game, without a shadow of a doubt. This embarrasses Fallout 3 and FO: New Vegas, as it does feel more in line with combat from an Id Software FPS game. VATS feels like since it no longer pauses the game entirely and now instead runs in slow-motion, I have to make much snappier decisions on which enemy and what body parts to shoot.

 

What happened to the RPG elements? No more working to get your stat's actual numbers up to 100 for Skills like Guns, Melee, Speechcraft, Explosives, etc - as most of that either got thrown out the window or moved over into the Perks section. Everything now seems to live in the Perks department.

 

Maybe it's because I'm not too far into the game or something - as big as this game feels, maybe that's why it feels like I've barely scratched the surface here - but it really seems like most quests either have less outcomes or seem to have only 2 different types of morally good responds with maybe another option a sarcastic jerk who'll still do something morally good, which may or may not have different outcomes to the quest, game-world, and game's ending - It's like no matter what, seems like there ain't much different pathways. Where's the evil decisions gone?

 

I absolutely loved the game's intro - from the intro video to whole immersion with the bombs dropping, it was pretty great. Well...for the most part, since the game does one thing that really seemed too quick + rushed and/or doesn't seem to have enough depth to it, storyline-wise and character-wise:

Spoiler

 

Of course, I don't really expect Bethesda's brand of writing dialogue, character-development, narrative, and storytelling to be anywhere in Obsidian's league (the team that did FO: New Vegas). Regardless, you'd still wish Bethesda could and would do better and actually get some good writers in their Studio.

 

Performance + graphic quality seems to range here. I don't like the VSync's forced on and with it now off via video-card software for NVidia Control Panel + with a 58 frame cap via MSI Afterburner, the game seems to run MUCH-MUCH better. Graphically, this looks to be best thing Bethesda's put out so far here...if that's really saying much, TBH. Still doesn't seem to be in the league of AC:U, AC:S and some other modern games. Most stuff's here on Ultra; and a few things on High now at 1080p. Game doesn't look spectacular, but it doesn't look absolutely horrible either. I wish internally in the game-engine, there was more options than just FXAA and TXAA (since TXAA can cause blur and other nonsense, which means you need to either externally use some other AA via video-card or other means like SweetFX; or combine TXAA in-game with some other AA outside of the game).

 

That's my thoughts, for now.

Yea, I gladly got 2K15 early on b/c I was so excited to actually be playing the series on PC (I had not played a WWE game since before 2K got the license), but I'm not biting on this one anytime soon. 2K15 was 75% off literally in 6 months and was 50% off in 3. The changes are not great enough (beyond the insane roster size) for me to bite sooner unless a deal or glitch comes about. Maybe I bite from a shady site sooner, but as excited as I was by 2K15 being announced, I'm that lukewarm for 2K16.

 

I'm also concerned about the way the press release is worded, "The world-renowned video game publisher indicated that the PC version of WWE 2K16 will largely mirror the console versions". This tells me that something is missing from the PC version, whether its something I can deal with not having (i.e. no Paige in 2K15) or something else remains to be seen. 

As usual, I'll likely wait for the typical big-time discount for 2K16. 

 

Buying yearly for Showcase Campaign Modes alone for me will be worth the typical $13 or less I'd like to spend on these games (i.e. around 75% off or so). I really dug the nostalgia found in 2K15 w/ Christian's One More Match feud; Cena/CM Punk feud; Mark Henry's HoP Run; HBK/HHH Feud; etc etc. I'm really looking forward to Austin's Showcase Mode in 2K16.

 

If the Showcase Stuff isn't enough - with 2K16's huge official roster; CAW Divas addition; changes/improvements in MyCareer (i.e. it'll keep going after winning the WWE belt); MyUniverse Mode for a seemingly never-ending end-game mode (when I finish MyCareer); any new wrestling moves they add to the game; whatever else is officially there; and whatever mods I might/could use - I'll probably get at least another 50-100 hours out of another WWE game.

 

Seems like a no-brainer for me.

I bought that crappy game since I didn't have it and my scratch off got me an Insurgency key - which I already have, but which is actually a decent thing to win given the .29 price.  Any regs need Insurgency?  

No thanks @ Insurgency.

But I'll take your extra SoM + Dying Light, thanks. ;)

 

EDIT: 

Reading this forum is like reading a foreign language.....BUT i usually figure out enough to be somewhat entertained, so it's okay. Ya'll have my permission to continue.  ;)

If you thought this all was something, just imagine if you were reading something Tebow typed...

EDIT:

Suppose to be a much better game than 2K15...  I do wish at this point they would release 2K17 across all platforms at the same time.

I'm fine w/ the game releasing late on PC (like they've been) only as long as they keep doing what they've done w/ these WWE 2K games: Base Game + All DLC's for one typical MSRP price ($30-60) right from the jump.

 

We don't need another incident w/ MKX where the sales + reception of the game just isn't so hot (for whaetver reason), that while in mid-DLC Season they don't feel like bringing all the DLC here. That's just garbage.

NewEgg -> Fallout 4 PC (retail box) + Season Pass bundle = $59.99

NewEgg -> EVGA 4GB VRAM NVidia GeForce GTX 960 SuperClocked = $185.99 after $10 rebate.

 

NewEgg Premier Members get free 3 day shipping or faster on these items.

Non-Premier Members, I don't know - but you'll have to check into what the shipping costs might be...
