  • The Crew has artificial 30fps lock on PC

    @funkateer

    Why would they want to do that, though?

    It seems to me that if they bother with PC versions anyway, why would they want to nerf these versions for the sake of parity?
    It's not like console parity is a bonus for potential buyers.
    Some do it. Dead Space 3 they openly said they were given everyone the same game and not utilizing PC. It happens...christ looks a lot of ports as hard evidence to :)

    Nerfing may be conspiracy theory stuff but the belief everyone should have the same thing for parity (or indeed plain old sloppy work as is the case at times to) is not.

    Yes and no. You have to remember PC is a huge and varied market, one with specs both higher and even lower than the consoles. Sure without doubt they should offer the possibility of higher and not lock it or "aim" for lower but they still need to look after the lower range.

    He went for a swim in a quarry. Not really seeing the connection other than liking cold water.

    Personally that is some terrible journalism to me.

    Have you read that. He drowned jumping in a quarry. The only link is he did the challenge before he went to the quarry and stupidly jumped in.

    You just hate it because they never fixed the SLI :)

    COD has free weekends a couple of times a year no biggie and the end of days of anything, it's a fun game with plenty of people playing and in no way a ghost town (in fact every game I play is full).

    "re-imagined" version of Alone in the Dark

    Uh-oh....

    Hopefully it's cool though the game that really started survival horror has been gone for a while, shame people didn't get own with the last one. Had a lot problems but also a lot of great ideas and personally I thought it was pretty good.

    They were honest. More so than Sony actually. When Sony does it it's usually the dev who has to tease or apologise they can't tell you anything.

    MS blatantly said "for holiday 2015", they were more "honest" than Sony have ever been. Sony even used to claim they have never paid for exclusives but let's not let reality cloud a good fanboy bitch ;)

    I don't get it, Sony buy up games and delay them on other platforms it's "transparent and honest". MS do THE SAME THING and they are somehow behaving different and somehow "tricking people"??? How so?

    @The_shlaaaag_returns

    There's no point getting into a debate about EA or crowd funding with me, it's too unsavory and untrustworthy for me to ever go for and stuff like Roberts and his stretch goals re-enforces that view more than anything.

    Plenty of devs who sell games not dreams out there. I don't fear change just untrustworthy business models with no guarantees of anything.

    You've lost 35 but some will lose $1500 maybe more. These people need to face up to the reality of what they are paying for. You would ridicule someone who defends pyramid schemes wouldn't you?

    Now admittedly I don't trust crowd funding a single bit and never will (they are big enough crooks on finished games these days) but I still think people need to know what it is they are doing what it is they are funding. As I said some people even think they've "bought" the game, they haven't they've basically given Roberts money and are HOPING a finished game comes out of it.

    Crowd funding is in it's infancy, if this game is anything to go by I hope it stays there, personally it's a huge mess not just waiting to happen but actually happening. I'll got back to the point that he has made far more than he originally pitched and not only continuing but having the frankly con artist cheek to charge these poor gullible fools 150+ for absolutely nothing. If you hope that kind of crowd funding is the future I am truly depressed.

    @The_shlaaaag_returns

    He said he could make it for 10 mil in his little dig to publishers, he's had that but constantly raising the bar dragging it out. You can guess 2016 but you have no clue, right now there is no guarantee it WILL come out. I hope for all your sakes it does but you can't say it will with any real certainty I'm afraid, the very real danger of funding I'm afraid. None of you have pre-ordered or anything like that (notice some think they've "bought" the game already).

    Yeah I'm sure Roberts truthfully wanted to stop money rolling in for a game he hasn't even made, I'm sure he was really disappointed when the desperate space sim fans he exploits told him they want to keep throwing him money with no real product yet.... :rolleyes:

    @The_shlaaaag_returns

    You are right people wouldn't be on him if it didn't raise so much money. He pitched it at 10mil, that's what he needed to make this. 2 years later and 5 times the money he "needed" and funding is still going with him selling $150+ virtual ships and still no idea if or when it will ever come out.

    To be fair to him why should he close it down, they are throwing money at him and even defending him. It's a poster child for why you don't buy into crowd funding but you can't blame him in reality. Like I said he is laughing his butt off right now.

    In a bid to defend him people keep telling people that like they don't seem to understand the concept of in-game currency.

    What if you have no in game currency to pay you insurance, docking fees or pay for a ship if you didn't buy the insurance because you didn't have any in game currency? It's the grind or pay model in full effect, we are very aware of what he is doing no need to pretend he is not developing F2P with an upfront price tag ;)

    It will have a money shop, it's the grind or pay model with taxes and insurance to pay. I seriously doubt he'll stop selling $150+ ships either if numbnuts are currently buying them...without an actual game to.

    Yeah it's been funny watching him raise the bar and people fall for it. "give me a mill and I'll give you a plant or a fake language we made up over our lunch break....er I mean paid good money to create" :)

    I do want to punch the "it's optional" crowd though, so is a pensioner letting in a bloke pretending to be the gasman, doesn't make it any better. He's fishing for marks plain and simple and these morons support him in it.

    Still I do hope at the very least he actually releases his "micro" transaction filled con for them.

    "Money came in from the sale of new Constellation class ships, which can be operated by multiple players. The cheapest of these, the Taurus, costs $150."

    Jesus Christ, what the fuck happened to gaming....and the IQ of gamers????? Roberts is just as much a crook as the mobile F2P conmen IMO praying on silly people with no sense.

    Ever since the insurance rubbish I thought this game is a con, now I see it blatantly is. I'll pass, I'd rather play the free WC3 I got off Origin.

    Yeah publishers fault true but because you are such a niche they aren't that bothered I'm afraid. I think it was EA who came out and said it's such a small percentage of gamers it's not something they put much effort into (not saying that is right but it is the way it is). You go multicard your gonna have a lot more issues than a single card user I'm afraid...and lets be honest it's not really needed to max out games.

    @WoodyG

    I've not seen people claim such a low amount myself but as I said before 500 pounds would easily outdo a PS4 though. Obviously hard to compare PC to console directly but something as cheap as a 650ti (paired with a good CPU of course) is comparable to the new consoles (a mid range card from a couple of years ago at the lower end).

    A word of advice though, drop the SLI. you are in a small niche that isn't supported very well. One monster card would probably save you a few headaches from the sound of it and you'll still max out games.

    Good man, I apologise, eat words and stand corrected but it did sound unrealistic (still think you are stupid for wasting so much cash all the time though you don't need to at all :) ).

    As for WD a single 780 seems to handle it just fine from what I see, just disable SLI, you'll still max it out from the evidence I've seen.

    Oh and if people really are telling you to go 2 titans and calling 780SLI shit, stay away from those forums.

    Hard to judge because it obviously depends on the game. MGS4 shifted a fair few PS3s I reckon but would the timed Ghostbusters period have shifted many? Will Abe or No Mans Sky send people rushing for PS4s compared to Uncharted 4 or a new GT? Indeed will Tomb Raider even shift any Bones? Titanfall, DR3, Ryse didn't set send it soaring.

    Let's pretend you own a monster PC like you claim.

    Why bother when you prefer to "chuck a disc in your PS4" because googling a few fixes is too much hassle after building such a high end rig.

    What purpose would a gaming PC worth a few grand (and upgraded with 2 cards at every new card release according to you) serve?

    I wanna see this vid, come on do it and end our doubts :)

    I doubt he is a PC gamer TBH. If you read his posts he is at the highest end of PC gaming, spending thousands upon thousands....but prefers playing multiplatform on his PS4 because consoles are less hassle. More Raglefant than PC gamer if you ask me :p
