I have to conduct a few points more,

Reloading a level after death takes longer than almost instant, around 5 seconds actually.

Meaning, on some check points at Uber difficulty, you will spend more time looking at the loading screen than playing.

I have a feeling the engine is doing something really bad here, like actually reloading everything.

I have 55 hours on Steam for this game. I probably played less than 20.

Why? Game does not quit. Executable stays in memory after I Alt-F4.

 

 

unlucky?    runs smooth as butter here with all the latest drivers.    never had to wait longer then a few seconds.    

 

maybe on uber something changes?     a bug?      

 

i am playing on second hardest level, and the game is too easy.    at normal level (bring'em on!) you can just run in shooting in the room and kill everyone in seconds!

 

maybe i should switch to ?ber, as i am only half way through!    I will report if there is any slowing downs.

Generally true, the second diff setting is quite easy, but there are moments where it's quite challenging. Depends how far you're in the campaign. Generally speaking it's quite easy.

Surprising considering it runs on my Core 2 Duo E6400, GTX 460 v2 (332.21 driver) , 8 GB DDR2.  Despite what the minimum requirements say  :D

 

This is happening on my Xbox One.

Beat the game. It was good, not great, just good. Really, it is just a game where you play a jarhead which kills a really large number of robot Nazis.

Not a game that I would replay though, that would be tedious.

I feel like re-playing Bioshock 3 now...

There aren't many games that are just plain good all the way through these days.

Bethesada is odd, they locked entire game in Germany, activate in Poland not playable in Germany, simply not shows on game list, if I try run exe form game folder i get info "locked in this country", hahahaha, sniffing over IP, not nice. Possible to play via VPN but this is not a solution, since I own original copy, blah.

IP locking is a terrible thing. But since you activated the uncensored version in Poland you can't play it in Germany, since there you can only use the altered version...it's idiotic, but Bethesda are JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS :devil:

And the funniest thing is that this law apply only to the games, for example worst B class movie is OK with symbols, since it is "Art", so it is allowed, games aren't Art in Germany so from there we have this what we have... :rofl:

I've send a email to Bethesda, no hope... Since they don't give a .... You know what ;)

Yeah, You was right, I didn't expect so big restrictions, since I was already running geo-locked games in past, this time they did one step forward... But I'm after some 30 min. test gameplay, and this game is awesome :D

It's pure hypocrisy and prejudice against games, as they're not "art". Next thing you know they'll be burning games and rounding up developers :D ok bad joke...

 

Writing to Bethesda won't help, they will tell you they are just complying with the law in Germany, which is true. Up to them the game would not be altered, it's just extra PITA for them.

Wow, what an experience. Completed it yesterday and indeed it was an amazing single player campaign, for all its faults and obvious breaks from reality - the writing and emotional impact were superb. This is almost on par with Spec Ops the Line, totally unexpected. To think we feared this would be the next Duke Forever or Colonial Marines...should have known better with Starbreeze/Machinegames at the helm. And yes, i totally cried during the end credits song. But nothing happened after the credits. Did i miss something?

      Minecraft Dungeons gets cross-platform cloud saves, but you have to sync manually
      by João Carrasqueira

      Mojang Studios' Minecraft dungeon-crawler spin-off Minecraft Dungeons was launched almost one year ago on all major platforms at the time, but it was oddly missing the ability to carry your save data across different devices if you chose to buy the game on more than one console. Now, the developers have announced that the feature is available as part of today's update for the game, version 1.8.8.0.

      Cloud saves will allow players to sync their Heroes to the cloud, which they can then use to play on another console. However, the process isn't as automatic or fluid as some might hope. The game's Hero Select screen will have a new option that allows you to upload a specific Hero to the cloud, as well as download them to your console if you've already uploaded one. You have to do this manually every time you switch platforms, and there's a limit of 20 heroes that can be saved on the cloud at any given time.

      Additionally, it's worth noting that DLC purchases don't carry over from platform to platform, so if you have equipped items from a specific DLC pack, they will be removed from your Hero when you load it up on a platform where you haven't bought the DLC. You also can't play on DLC maps unless you buy them on the platform you want to play on.

      There have been four DLC packs released since the game's launch, so to be unable to carry over those purchases across platforms is likely going to be a problem for many players, and it takes away a significant portion of the impact of cloud saves. Regardless, if you happen to have bought the game and its DLC packs across more than one platform, this may be good news for you. Earlier this year, Mojang announced that over 10 million people had bought Minecraft Dungeons, so there's a solid fanbase that might have use for the feature.

      Aside from that, today's patch includes a number of fixes and tweaks, including multiple crashes that have been addressed and a handful of other issues. The game is also now available in Chinese Traditional and Simplified variants across all platforms.

      Fall Guys Xbox and Switch versions delayed out of summer
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Mediatonic recently announced that its blockbuster multiplayer platformer Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout would be finally hitting the Xbox and Switch platforms later this year, with the studio aiming for a summer launch. However, today it revealed that the summer launch window will not be met, saying that the "schedule is unfortunately just too soon for us to include all of the tasty new features we're working on.

      "While we want to launch on these platforms as quickly as possible, we believe the Switch and Xbox releases are really going to be worth waiting for and we’re super grateful for your patience," added the development team in its blog.

      One of the "tasty new features" the developer mentioned today is the long-anticipated cross-play support, letting all players stumble around levels together regardless of what platform they are playing on.

      Unfortunately, Mediatonic did not have new launch dates to share for the Xbox One, Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch versions, nor the cross-play support update. Meanwhile, the Fall Guys Season 4.5 update is slated to land in the near future, bringing two new rounds and even more cosmetic content.

      Following the recent acquisition, Mediatonic is now owned by Epic Games. The studio has said there are no plans in motion to remove the title from Steam.

      Windows 10 is now on over 1.3 billion active devices
      by João Carrasqueira



      During its earnings call today, Microsoft revealed that there are now over 1.3 billion monthly active devices running Windows 10 (via ZDNet). The new milestone comes just over a year after Microsoft announced that it had finally hit its goal of having one billion devices running Windows 10.

      That fast growth can be attributed in no small part to the increased demand for PCs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic that struck the world in the past year. In its earnings report for the past quarter, Microsoft reported a 10% increase in Windows OEM revenue, meaning its partners have been selling more PCs. Similarly, Surface revenue was up 12% according to the company's report.

      Another potential driving factor in Windows 10 adoption is the fact that Windows 7 is no longer supported outside of enterprise customers paying for extended security updates, which aren't cheap. In order to stay secure, more and more companies had to upgrade to the newer version of the OS.

      While growth has been pretty healthy for Microsoft's OS in the past year, Windows 10 adoption was actually a lot slower than the company had hoped for when it initially introduced the operating system. In 2015, Microsoft said it hoped to reach one billion active devices within the next three years, which would have been in the summer of 2018. In fairness, at the time, the announcement included all kinds of devices that Microsoft wanted to offer Windows 10 on, including phones, an effort that fell by the wayside after a couple of years.

      It's a day of milestones for Microsoft products, as you'd expect from an earnings day. The company has also revealed that its Teams communication service now has over 145 million daily active users, and Office 365 has 300 million paid seats, with 50 million users subscribed to Microsoft 365 for consumers.
