And why should I trust their explanation? I don't know him/her.

That's the point.

But I didn't want to derail this thread, sorry.

Let's go back to waiting ^^

Sad, pretty sad but I guess you know it.

The timer is tied to your store region. It's part of the store, after all. ;)

It's the same model, you just don't see much of him in the trailer. He is called Morgan Yu in that trailer AND the voice is Benedict Wong, who's parents are Chinese.

Looks pretty asian in that trailer to me.



Morgan Yu as a female Character (the name itself is deliberately non-gendered) was also announced at E3, but wasn't shown until a few months later when they released this trailer. So they haven't changed or altered anything.




Speaking of Benedict Wong, I'd love to see an easter egg of Dr Franklin Fu and Medibot

Yeah, provided everything is in order. If you're seeing AU/NZ as an option here, then Steam has detected an AU/NZ IP.

Ah nice, that makes a more sense. One instance I can deal with. I was imagining a Dead Space climb-into-the-pod-shop type dealie every time, only with more stabbing.

There's not much in the way of free AU/NZ VPNs. VPN Gate comes to mind, though as the "servers" are the PCs of volunteers, there's no guarantee that an AU/NZ server will be available; and VyprVPN offers a free three-day trial, but you must remember to cancel within 72 hours as otherwise you'll be charged.

Yeah checked VPN Gate, seems there are no Australian or New Zealand VPNs available atm. Seems I have to use FlyVPN then.

There's a device called the Psychoscope that allow you to scan the Typhon aliens and learn their powers. The phrase you quoted basically says the Psychoscope was intentionally designed to feel restrictive so players don't overly rely on them.

Jokes on me I forgot to cancel my VPN from Mass Effect 4 so this one is free sorta* (free if you count like 20 dollars since then oh well)

The release version or the demo? The demo has no dedicated pro support and the release version is supposed to have adjust sensitivity controller curves.

Retail. Got the day1 patch, yet the input lag is visible disturbing. Also doasn't look like any pro enhancements are in effect. Maybe another patch tomorrow or today. So far its a pain.

Took VyprVPN Trial, connected and tried to access Steam Store to see if release time has changed, but can't open Steam Store. Valve has blocked VPN access to it? Will be interesting to see if this works for early unlocking of the game.

That's what made me google it as I thought that sounded like him, then this video came up that said it was Morgan Yu

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnBJtJAQ2OY

So maybe that video got it wrong.

This game has nothing to do with the original Prey. It's a completely different game.

You can use an Amazon S3 instance as a VPN (it's free for the first 12 months, but requires a debit/credit card).

Here's a guide.

I'm no expert but this doesn't look or feel like it got the pro treatment. Launch is tomorrow though, so maybe there's another patch incoming (only 1.01 now).

Demo didn't impress me at all. Immediately feels like some kind of half-life knock-off, and the feel and humour and designs seem like retreads of previous games.

Will see how reviews do, but I'm pretty sure I'll skip this.

Bethesda policy is not to release review code until release day, unfortunately.

This is why I did not pre-order, if this is still apparent upon release it's a pass for me.

I absolutely fucking hate aim lag, Rise of the Tom Raider had it, and I did not purchase until it was fixed.... many many months later :/
