Just wanted to say bye to you guys. This has been a good board for a long time and I have enjoyed many a conversations and debates. I just don't care for gamespot like I used to. To me personally they have leaned way too far into the social issues with their articles and concentrate less on games...but that's another topic all together. The sites just not for me anymore and so I have decide to move on.

So thanks for the good times and take care.

i'll miss you man :( i'm right there with you. this site is becoming something other than a gaming site.

the passion is completely gone; it's become strictly a job for reviewers to generate ad revenue, a vessel for personal agendas as seen in the news section, and now has a lifeless and overly strict forum that will suffocate the community (as if that hasn't been happening already). in other words, its basically going the kotaku/polygon route.

we can't watch videos if we have adblock, now. also, the really interesting decision to discontinue paid memberships that got rid of ads is fishy. yet another medium that tries to jam ads down my throat. no thanks. the reason why people have adblock is because ads are getting progressively more intrusive. and the fact that the content isn't even worth the time anymore is a joke.

i'm sorry but i'm not getting my screen cluttered with annoying ads to navigate to a video with a 30 second ad that i'm forced to sit through just to get to a video that tells me that some game is artificially sexist. deuces.

I really miss Bad Company 2 levels of destruction. Both BF3 and the BF4 beta seems watered down in that aspect..Ondoval
i see what you mean, but having like 8 prefab buildings featuring semi-detailed destruction isn't a whole lot better than what bf3/4 offer. while the level of destruction has been drastically reduced, there's more objects to be destroyed and a much higher visual quality in destruction all around. bf3:close quarters and the bf4 beta have a great deal of sexy looking destruction, and those really brought destruction a step forward in a sense. but, i do agree with you that there needs to be a map in bf4 that allows you to completely level its structures. that was what made bc2 unique with its own 'levelution' that offered more in terms of strategy.

using the beta drivers. getting 25-60fps on high-ish with a gtx670 FTW clocked close to a 680. so basically a 680. impressed that the game is mostly smooth and the drops to the 20s and 30s aren't excessive. this is only the first released build. can't wait to see some updates applied.

[QUOTE="yellosnolvr"]

The beta is an early, test version of Battlefield 4. Players should expect to run into in-game bugs, connection problems, and other common beta issues.wis3boi

actually. no. not this close to release and not with a product so similar to the last one.

a new engine, new physics, rewritten netcode, and basically redone everything and you want perfection? Tell us more about how often you do game software development

i think i should've been clear with the fact that i'm a very big fan of the series and--despite the 'changes' made to each release from 1942, to 2, to 2142, etc.--have stuck with the series, highly anticipating each release, 4 included. i don't want perfection, but that seems like an awful lot that could go wrong. please explain how it is a good idea to beta test this close to release, mr. software engineer. i feel that the timetable does not allow a good cushion for developers to polish the final product. they couldn't do it for bf3, with a much larger gap between beta and release. i'll reiterate that i'm a huge fan and will enjoy it regardless, but i'm not sure they're fully dedicated to 'taking call of duty down' if they're taking chances at releasing another semi-polished title.

Yeah, i tried that one on the free week end on steam. I don't know why, but it overheats my computer. I can play Battlefield 3 on Ultra graphics, run it smoothly and my computer isn't overheating at all. But that game...xbloodyhands
using nvidia graphics card? are your graphics drivers up to date? that has caused that sort of issue with nvidia in the past, but hasn't happened in years as far as i know. the reason i'm so insistent on this is because natural selection 2 is one sexy ass game.
