For the record I can't play this game because my graphics card is 5 years old and can't run directx 11. CoD can infact run though on an xbox 360 which was released 9 years ago.

Say what you will about #gamergate, but it really was an indication that the gaming industry is becoming infested with people that don't actually care about gaming and are committed to its destruction. Obviously #gamergate has nothing directly to do with lovely PC support for the new CoD, it is just the canary in the mine with regards to this stuff.

So basically gently caress this gay earth. There is no logical reason why this game should not be able to be played on older graphics cards. I can understand low frame rates, or maybe some graphical glitches, but to simply just straight up not being able to run is just not right.

Actually it's about ethics, zwdzk.

No its about a bunch of assholes on both sides of the "debate" acting like children and trying to destroy an industry. Like I said, it is just the canary in the mine. I'm sure there are a bunch of rear end in a top hat lazy programmers that don't feel like coding in lower levels of directx support in the new CoD, or people being pressured by executives to make older cards obsolete.

The real word is "corruption" and it has nothing to do with gaming journalism or feminism or whatever. The gaming industry because of its high level of technical sophistication has largely been immune to a lot of issues regarding corruption, but as it becomes larger and takes in more and more revenue it is bound to attract people that don't really care about it and are either there simply for the money or see it as an easy target to cause problems for people and ruin things.

Is being an unironic gamergater seriously not bannable?

The shits I give about #lamergate is below zero. The shits I give about not being able to play the new CoD on my 5 year old graphics card is somewhat high.

It seems like, overall, you are giving too many shits. Besides the world is doing you a favor by not letting you play Advanced fartfare.

16 years since the release of Starsiege: Tribes and still not a single FPS that even is worthy the lick the boots of that game.

Technical sophistication can abate the evils of corruption for only so long; now cracks a noble industry...

What it really comes down to is that most evil people are lazy, and when something requires a lot of effort and talent to master the chances of it attracting evil people are lower.

Apthous, I think you should compare Hannah Arendt's text "Eichmann in Jerusalem..." to Advanced Warmongering's multiplayer development cycle in a 2000 word essay-post. I believe we will all understand your grievances upon the posting of that post; we are not there yet.

I'll compare #lamergate to a bunch of teenagers trying to shoot up a gun show.

ha ha ha look at this grandpa

go upgrade your card dummy

I'm thinking about it. I've been playing MW3 for the past 2-3 years and usually get a 7-1 kill ratio if no one is hacking.

For all the people that act like stomping pubs is no big deal, I really disagree. Going like 26-4 every game takes a lot of skill.

Which 5 year old GPU is this? Stuff is still running fine on my 5850, which is from mid 2009.

GTX 260, so its actually 6 years old, but still.

Dude its time to upgrade holy poo poo.

I can run MW3, BF3 silky smooth. I also ran the bf4 beta silky smooth as well.

And I think I have a higher RAM version of the gtx260, which from my understanding gives me better performance in Maya. So I'm not even sure upgrading my graphics card just to run dx11 would even improve Maya viewport speed because I remember reading when I was purchasing my computer a few years ago that its totally dependent on GPU RAM or some poo poo like that.

MW3 came out in like 2011 or some poo poo please stop complaining about a new video game not being able to run on your old rear end computer.

It used to be that when your computer got old newer games would just run slowly. The last time I encountered a game that simply couldn't run because of hardware was back around 2000 (or before or whenever that was) when you first started needing dedicated GPUs to play games. I can understand that somewhat, but like I said the fact that AW can run on a loving Xbox 360 which came out in 2005 makes me mad as gently caress that it can't run on my graphics card which came out in late 2008. And there is no loving way that there has been such a loving advancement in graphics from dx9 to dx11 that requires some massive change in hardware. AW looks arguably worse than loving bf3 in some places.

The fact that there is requirement for the game to run on dx11 and nothing else tells me that either the developers were too loving lazy to code in support for lower versions of dx (civ 5 gave you the option of running the game in lower versions of dx), or someone stands to make money from forcing people to buy new video cards.

Yes I know I could just spring the money for a new card that supports dx11, but its the principle of the loving thing at this point. I don't like being jerked around and told what to do by either lazy programmers or corrupt businessmen.

So I finally pieced together all the drama with Sledgehammer, Respawn, and Infinity Ward. These loving people are literally worse than rappers with all of their loving drama and beef. Is it possible to make a loving game without acting like a loving child who causes a scene because someone disrespected them or smudged their Puma's or something?

For all the people that were concerned in this thread I bought a new video card so I can play this game. Are the cinematics just high quality renders from in game assets or are they pre rendered?

AW is like Tribes with the dick chopped off. The next DLC is just going to be a copy of the 1998 version of Tribes and you can fly around with a jetpack to your heart's content.

Next game focuses on killing gamergate supporters. Please look forward to it.

I want to kill both sides but CoD doesn't allow friendly fire.
