It would be great. But, I just thought I'd check on if any of you had it.

I do agree, that more "polished" games were made, instead of what seems to be some sloppier products.

Does anyone have an Epic Games account and/or game launcher? I've had one for several months, when I saw that I could get some of the Batman Arkham games for free, with having the game launcher.

A couple weeks ago, I was able to get World War Z for free, now it's no longer offered for free, but other games are.

IF you have an account, add me. However, the spelling of my name was taken, so I had to add a letter to my name there. It's Darcwolfe on Epic Games.

I can relate to the whole budget thing. My dsl is bundled with a traditional land line. With my health issues, I'd rather have a traditional phone line over a cable phone line, as cable goes out way more often, and if the power goes out, there goes that phone line.

With where I live, it's just a bit too far to get "most" of the Seattle area broadcast stations. Most of the time, I can only get 4 stations with a digital antenna, on a good day, up to 9, with the 5 I don't always get, being religious stations. I have no interest in those 5. lol

So, I'm stuck paying the cable company for local only. Runs me $45 and change per month for that, a dvr and the taxes associated with it. I wind up getting about 90% of the local stations that way.

I could always do the "bundle" thing, with the tv service I'm paying for, and their internet, but as I said, they measure data usage. Yuck....

Is there ANY options where you're at, for home internet? Or is is just through your smartphone?

If your only option it using your cellphone as a mobile hotspot for your computer to get online, it explains why you're not doing really anything for online game playing on the pc.

As I said, the data was only throttled as a hotspot. It didn't affect how fast my phone itself could retrieve data.

With that, I'd switch the connection my pc had, back to my dsl router, and use the wifi hotspot on the phone, to connect my roku to the phone, and watch streaming services that I wanted to watch, as those huge downloads ate up my bandwidth, causeing any streaming, to constantly bounce in and out of buffering.

I just with that my isp had faster internet available in my area, like they do in the more populated areas. As I mentioned before, I don't want to go with the cable internet, as they limit data per month and charge for going over. My dsl is unlimited data. When I look at it being unlimited data, it's slightly easier to live with, since I can't afford overage charges for going over a data limit, or paying for a much more expensive plan, that would get more data, with the same kind of thing, if I were to manage to go over that higher limit.

Ahh, okay. I had my cellphone set up as a wifi hotspot a few months ago, when I was starting all over again, after replacing my hard drive. With World of Warcraft being 65+ GB and GTA 5 being about 85 GB, I gave it a shot, since the internet on my phone, is lots faster. I wound up finding out that I don't have unlimited data as a wifi hotspot on the phone. lol

I eventually got a message saying that I ran out of data, and they were slowing the speed down for it being a wifi hotspot, but regular data speeds were going to be unaffected.

It's not that I can't, but this particular one is super huge at 150 GB.  It will take most of a week to download, with my dsl being up to 4 mbps.


Try it without DSL, dude. FO4 took the better of a month. : )

How would I try it without DSL? Obviously other than cable internet. The cable company that services my area, measures data usage. A 150 GB download, would eat up almost half, if not half, of what I'd be allowed in a month. That is, if there are no issues downloading it. I had to download GTA 5 twice, just to get it to install correctly, ;because of the piss poor job at packing the files, that Rockstar does.

As I mentioned before, they're the only developer that I've had issues with, for games that are 60+ GB in size. Every other game I have, has had absolutely no issues with the downloads finishing, and finishing correctly.

It's pretty short sighted of them, to not have a physical disc to install the game on the pc, when they have physical discs for the ps4 and xbox 1 versions of the game.


With streaming services being all the rage today, I'm not too surprised. If you can stream games, surely you can download a personal copy of one, right? dry.gif

Most of the offerings in the gaming industry have gone the way of being little more than (if not completely) interactive, animated movies anyway. Most studios already have ditched what is, imho, a video game's most compelling feature: player agency. Makes me wonder, at times, if we're not seeing the beginning of the end of the video game as an art form unto itself.

That one kept stopping with an error code, and having to delete a partial file, just to continue. Rockstar tech support wanted to blame my internet speed, instead of looking at how crappy they packed the files.

Other large games, 65+ gb, I've had no issue getting downloaded, or large updates to those games. Just the huge very large ones, from Rockstar. Even very large updates to GTA 5, have given me issues.

I'm still glad that I am not interested in a digital download of RDR2, as I've heard they've had tons of issues with online play, since its launch.   Maybe at some point in the near future, they'll have those issues fixed and physical copies of the install.  lol

Oops.

Well, I wasn't going to play the online component anyway, so it's all good, but for the lack of a physical copy thing.

So I've read. I saw earlier, that we can now save up to 25% off, getting it through Steam. When I saw that, I went to Amazon.com, to see if I could order a physical copy yet. I can't. With my connection speed, and the fact that RDR2 is 150GB, I don't really want to do a digital download.

I've been putting off actually getting a 2nd hard drive, to install gamins and such on.   My C drive is a 1 TB drive.  The one that failed, was down to about 30 GB left, which is why I've been looking at a 2nd drive, and haven't replaced all my games yet.  lol

Second drive.... Yep, yep, yep. If the gaming industry keeps going like this, we'll need a rack of hard drives to keep up.

RDR2 comes in at a staggering 150 GBs. : o

Good thing we're in terabyte territory at this point?
*




Good thing they aren't at the TB size yet. My C drive is a 1 TB drive and I don't even have half my games reinstalled yet, and I'm already just over 2/3 full. Probably because I took advantage of the 3 Batman Arkham game for free, from EPIC game, that took some of that space. lol

I'm thinking of getting at least a 2 TB hard drive, for my 2nd hard drive.

IF you want to add me on Steam, I'm the Darcwolf with a Yoda avatar, and it should also show my clan in my profile, Rising Order. If you go by a different name there, than you do here, just let me know who you are. lol

Back in August, had a hard drive failure, and had to replace it, along with getting the OS reinstalled. I don't have the dvd burning or playing software back yet, and only a fraction of the games reinstalled. I did get a new video card for my birthday, after the hard drive was replaced.

Even though it became available to preorder from their game launcher this morning, it's still not available to preorder on Amazon yet. So, I'll have to wait until it's available there. Being paid once a month, due to being on disability sucks. lol

I typically will build up a little balance on Amazon over time, so that way, I can afford some of these new games or any parts for my tower, if I have to upgrade anything.

Well, well. Would you look at that.

Rockstar just announced RDR2 will be released for PC on November 5  biggrin.gif ...via its own game launcher  sad.gif .

The launcher wars continue....

GTA can be a pain, when there's modders in it, but it can also be fun. I know that they expanded tons, from where is was on the ps3/xbox 360. I was getting more and more frustrated, when they kept pushing the release date for the pc, but have been enjoying it.

It has been a very long time since I've even met up with any of your clan in any servers from back in the days. I know there's still some JKA servers going. I was in on earlier this year, kept hitting some of my binds, forgetting what they were. I do have a cheat sheet or two, for my various binds. lol

I saw that jk2, has received some new breath to it, with it being released on the ps4. However, I don't have that console, and would most likely be disappointed in it, from having played it for so long on the pc.

As far as RDR2, some of us that have been playing GTA 5 in that branch of RO, are thinking about getting the game, once it's released on the pc.

I've been primarily playing GTA 5 and WoW. I have GTA 5 on the ps3 and the pc, though I haven't done any gaming on my ps3 in over 2 years now.

My clan is spread across a few games, and haven't done much gaming together as a clan, with the exception of a few times in recent months.

Just a follow up on what I previously mentioned about Discord, over the weekend, I added 2 voice channels to the RO channel. One is for jka, and the other is for jk2.

I know it's been quite some time since RJ has had servers in either game, and even longer for us in RO. I still do play either game from time to time. I do remember that there were some jka servers earlier this year.

If any of you in RJ, would like an invite to the RO discord channel, let me know, and I can create an invite and PM it to you.

We do have members from a couple of our jka/jk2 allies in the channel as well, with settings that show the clan they're in, and I can create one for =RJ= as well. smile.gif
