    The devil is in the details

    There is a separate skill you have to unlock in order to use your night vision and thermal vision with the drone. Is that what you mean?

    The devil is in the details

    This kind of statement always makes me smirk. Is there ever a product that is launched that doesn't have glitches? Vehicles, electronics, insurance,... milk? Unfortunately the "ready-ness" of a game for the market isn't tied to a lack of bugs. It is a financial decision. Who knows how those decisions are made inside of a company by a mix of accountants, co-investors, board of directors, Microsoft approval, Playstation approval, etc. Does the director of game development really get to make the decision on his/her own that a game is ready for market? No. From what I know and understand of programming an the business world... it is a wonder to me that anything gets accomplished. Game production is like wind-surfing in a hurricane with an accountant on the board with you.
  3. I had a full weekend with it. They certainly don't explain much and what they do explain in-game they don't explain very well. YouTube videos helped quite a bit. I had to watch several of them again AFTER playing a few hours. After getting some in-game time I was able to understand the YouTube instructional videos much better. Is Ubisoft assuming that every player is in a social network with other gamers? It seems Ubisoft has built a game with the expectation that people on your friend list will help you understand the product. The only advice I would give is... when the little icon appears on your menu that tells you "there is something new" ALWAYS check it out. This, more than anything else, will help you understand more about the inner-workings of everything from mission objectives to gear. For example, I had no idea how important the objectives tab is for "completing" missions. You have to go into the objectives tab and click on the green button to "finish" certain missions. I just followed the yellow "new info" tags until I got all the way to the mission where I had the three pieces of evidence... I just needed to click "resolve" to clear everything out so it would advance to the next mission.
  4. Boy, I think you have that zeroed in. I had long forgotten the early problems with Wildlands when I opened it back up two years later, I noticed almost zero glitches and enjoyed the story and gameplay. I guess it is too late for a "fanatical effort" to fix problems could result in a turn-around for Christmas sales? Once the reviews are out there they never come off the internet or get "updated". The damage is done I suppose and you can't save the sinking ship? Gamers deciding what to buy have already moved on to the next title never to look back at a game that has been fixed and improved..
  5. Have they "learned" anything? Sadly I doubt it. I was gone from Ghost Recon, and all of its branches, for a long time. Bought Wildlands in March of 2017 and played it for three days over something like the course of a week. It took all the way to March of 2019 before I finally turned-on Wildlands to really play through it. That was long after everything had been fixed. I was glad I avoided all of the drama. I enjoyed the single player game, including the wonky Mario Kart Style DLC. It was worth the purchase price. Wildlands actually got me excited about Breakpoint. Been trying Breakpoint for a few days. Enjoying it so far... my casual play style has minimized the problems with bugs and glitches. Looks like I might be taking a break and coming back to Breakpoint after some of the drama and fixes are over.
  6. Been a while since I was here... was looking through for an old link and came by gr.net. I recently put [GR] in my XBOX360 and have really been enjoying it. No MP or live aware so you are off the grid... but well worth it. I think I am up to 45 dossier tasks complete. Not looking forward to Firefight on Villinus with Bizon and M136 kit, that was my most difficult dossier task as I recall. Just slapping that CD in the XBOX and everything simply working on an old game long put away is pretty convenient. I will probably burn through GRIT and play the GR2s in first person. I need to schedule a LAN co-op night. Sorry, didn't see this was PC section. Ugh, guess it has been a while.
  7. Thanks man. I really don't do anything "artsy" nor do I have any programs for that...so I can't give you a banner of any kind.

    Excellent. I deleted my Mom from my friend list to make room for "GRAW2LeadDesign". I sure hope you appreciate it.

    Let's have a gaming night?

    Count me in and tell me when! But I can't host either... Hey kimi...next time you see me on GRAW 2 throw me a note over live like "inv" and I can get you in. I didn't notice you on GRAW2 recently and figured you wanted to finish Bioshock so I didn't bother sending you an invite. I am on most nights. The two new game modes in Exfiltration are co-op and best experienced in a small room of 3 or 5 people.

    Upcoming patch?

    Co-op is a big resource hog, I see guys drop all the time from over-hosting. People that can host 16 with booms can have trouble in co-op rooms of 8 sometimes. I guess we will have to see.
  13. America's Army Announcement Trailer appears on Markeplace (20 Aug 07) Wow, looks great. First Person Weapon View Almost a complete lack of icons and "tech" junk on the screen. Looks like a lot of realistic iron sights to me. Still has "kill status"scrolling in top center of screen. Other than that, what can you tell from an announcement trailer? Not much. We may have our tactical shooter! The video has me pumped.

    XBOX 360 Headset Problem

    So your internet pipeline is going from your modem....to the router....over a wireless connection into your laptop...then out of your laptop network connection into your XBOX? I would say that is your problem right there. Go to Staples and get a 50' cable and I bet your problem is solved.
