What the what? I could've sworn I wasted Molag Bal over a year ago.

According to the lore, when you are told that you will have to make a choice on which of the 5 companions must die, that a Daedric prince can never be truly destroyed.

doom isnt a reboot

The internet is not in full agreement with you.

Doom (stylized as DOOM and originally known as Doom 4) is the upcoming reboot of the Doom series by id Software. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doom_(reboot_video_game)

New ‘DOOM’ Is A Full Reboot; First Details From QuakeCon
http://gamerant.com/doom-reboot-quakecon-details/


What RedEye9 said.

Symantecs aside, whatever the most recent Doom Videos are showing (and whatever you ant to call it).... do the same for Duke 3D.

Classic backwards_run/strafe and gun, fast paced, multiple passageways through levels (maybe even more complex than the originals), same old enemies and maybe a few new ones, same type of cliche's / jokes / humor, and modernized graphics.

You know... a fucking real successor to Duke 3D.

Just reboot the original Duke 3D like iD is doing with the new Doom.

The Watch is flopping because people already have smartphones which do a lot more. The future of wearables was not going to be something already outmoded. They just aren't very useful, tiny ass screen, limited functionality and absurd price tag.

They're just chasing their tail around under Cook, Jobs may have been a prick but at least he had some direction for the company.

Also many folks haven't worn a regular watch since the smaller cell phone era after the brick phones (myself included). Time on those were more accurate. Why would one spend the money and go back to something on their wrist that is partially redundant to their smart phone? With shit battery life to boot.

If squadron 42 is decent for my piddly $25 early investment and never bought any extra ships... the rest can crash and burn for all I care.

Variable refresh functionality is in the vesa spec.

AMD's trademark for their support for that functionality is called "freesync" - but it's not actually an AMD specific tech.

If nvidia wanted to fully support all the vesa options, they would have a freesync-like feature too. They simply choose to not support it, and instead make a proprietary solution.

It was a joke... hence the smiley. Wink

For once I agree with Derek (As far as the snippet posted here on blues below the headline).

That said... he's still just as much of a moron as the rest for spending $250.00.

Until they start offering their software on other digital platforms and I dont need to use that Origins Crap, and stop churning out the same shit year after year resulting in brand burnout, and stop buying once great companies and destroying them (Bullfrog, Westwood, Origin Systems, BioWare) then MAYBE I will buy a product from them again..

As it stands, I haven't bought (or even acquired otherwise) an EA game in nearly 3 years now. I am no worse off from it and intend to carry on doing so.

Ditto.

Been almost 5 years for me, though. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (2010) is the last EA game I bought. I will never sign up for origin. Period.

Meh... I'll wait a gen or 2 after Winblows 10 is released. My GTX680 still has plenty of horsepower for 1080p gaming... which is all my monitor goes to, anyway.

Well... here's the rub... even if Zen is a 40% improvement of instructions per thread... that's not enough to compete with Intel, when Core i3's can do almost double (100% over Bulldozer).

Their APU's with ATi graphics and stacked Memory is the only real market they can whip Intel on. (In devices that wouldn't have a descrete graphics card... mini's, HTPC's, etc.)

1-20 was the best, yes... but after 20 wasn't THAT bad... base gameplay-wise... it just wasn't voice-overed and you no longer could to "personal story private quests restricted to night time" like you could at 1-20.


Where AoC really failed after level 20 was content level gaps (had to grind a few levels to get back to the questing), and buggy-ass broken quests that you couldn't complete. I had a buttful by about level 45 and quit.

I imagine that all would be fixed by now, though.
One would just have to still put up with no more voice overs after level 20, and no instanced private story.

The combat was interesting for Melee, but if I recall, magic users weren't too happy. Not sure if they fixed that or not.

It wasn't a horrible game, IMO... but not great... and definitely not finished.

Well... I'm not actually poo-pooing the OS, itself. I actually like the latest builds, and the Dark theme looks much better than the fugly pastel windows of 8.0/8.1.

That said... make no mistake... YOU are the product, just like with Facebook, Google, etc. etc.

I intend to block / disable / uninstall all that stuff. Fortunately you can still make a local account... you can make search not use the internet, disable cortana, disable one drive, all through local policy editing... and uninstall most of the modern apps with powershell.
