    How hard would it really be to support win7 and win10? every other fucking game seems to manage it quite well with little downtime, but no, not microdick, MUH WIN10.

    Convert or die.

    Oh my, there are still Win 7 holdouts? Are you guys really that poor? Cannot afford a key?

    This reminds me so much of the Windows 98 holdouts years after XP was standard.

    At some point, you just have to move on.

    Or you know, just comfort. don't fix what aint broken. Windows 7 works FLAWLESSLY in just about any game i've played, meanwhile, alot of win10 fags have trouble with optimization, graphics etc. in alot of games.

    also laziness.

    Win10 is basically the equivalent of consoles

    I'm happy with win7 for now. When I feel like it is restricting me, I will move to win10. Worth noting; I don't play many AAA games on PC anymore.

    I've still got Windows 7 (64 bit). Not for any ideological opposition to Windows 10 or anything, I just never bothered to upgrade. Hope the release version is Win 7 compatible or Fargo will pay.

    Did you set up any specific settings? or run anything specific on Win7? perhaps in terms of unity?

    No. I just start it from Steam as any other game. The only problem that I have is that sometimes my mouse stops working. The game just doesn't react to it, the keyboard still works though. The only way to solve it is to restart the game.

    Heh the last few minutes of this will make grognards angry. It was a decent panel though, the host asked good questions.

    Surprised


    Border line on low end of PC spec’s. Win 10, i5 2400 3.1, 8 gig ram, 2 gig Nvidia GT630, SSHD.

    So it’s Steam or nothing. ;) Resurrected / Transferred old Steam account and downloaded Beta.

    Played some as was installed.

    Movie part ok.

    Character set up ok, point and click seemed normal.
    Not a struggle. No pushing the pointer or missing the highlight.

    Video in game was challenged, and I tripped over the first fight. Ranger level.
    Lived another day because I put 2 points in main weapon and hunkered down after shots.

    Detail good enough, even with all the busy ranging graphics flicking about.
    One time a spider web of possible trajectories then a ray tracing glory.

    Will see what I can turn off, to calm it down, as my eyes adjust to the stuttering simulation.

    I played a little bit. From what little I did play, it's a prettier, more edgy Wasteland 2. You only play with two characters in the demo (so far). I made a combat focused dude (assault rifles), with first aid and a handy chick, with a shotgun. If you don't want to make your own character, there are a few pairs of rangers to choose from. I don't know why would want to do that, though. There's full cover, half cover, breakable objects, and explosive barrels. Assault rifle seemed good enough as a long ranged option, and shotgun felt better than W2. But you have to get close up and personal. There's flanking to take advantage of, or get screwed over by.
    In the demo, they showed an example of how you can use your skill to turn a robot against your enemy. There's some other times where you get to use skills. None of that stupid shit from W2, where you had to wait 5 billion years for the skill to be used. There's no percentage chance, from what I gathered. Either you can succeed or your skill isn't high enough. There was a mine I detected with perception, but couldn't disarm. It couldn't be shot, but a frag grenade did the trick. It earned me a better AR, but my points in AR skill wasn't high enough, so I couldn't use it.

    Writing is Wasteland 2 tier, but with more edge. Soundtrack did its work. Graphically, you will definitely feel that Pyke had something to do with the game, especially if you have played STASIS or CAYNE. The lighting and effects give me vibes of those games. Performance wise, I thought that it would be ass, but it's running well enough for me. With mixed settings. Most of the settings set to high, with some exceptions.
    The game looks good enough, has a better presentation than W3. My gut feeling tells me this will be a game that I will like, but not consider a classic.

    If there's anything you want to ask, don't hesitate to do so. I'll do my best to answer.

    Heavy wep looks OP af, especially with that quirk.

    Ambush ignored line of sight: https://youtu.be/ojY_WT8B_gs?t=2456 bug?

    Hmn, not just ambush. Strange he can aim through/above hard/tall cover.

    The only complaint i have atm is how it seems way too edgy even by Wasteland standards.
