News Comments > Path of Exile: The Awakening Support Packs & Divination Cards

I might give Dota 2 a rest for awhile and check this out again to see how things have changed, the new netcode option sounds good since that was my main beef before with playing HC. The combat preview on their website looked like there are some new animations too which the game really needed IMO. Any word on when this comes out of CB?

But Witcher 3 next week

This is what, the third major release in 2 years? No one learned any lessons from over saturating the market last few gens with franchises apparently - Tony Hawk, Guitar Hero, etc.

Nothing in that trailer really excites me either, its just the same window dressing I've seen for years now.

Anyone pick this up? I love everything Shadowrun but this kinda flew under the radar for me.

It's interesting that the only real criticism of the game is "it's not skyrim".

Anyone even remotely familiar with Witcher games will know that it's not Skyrim. I guess someone, somewhere, at some point, made the comparison to Skyrim and goddamn it that's going to be the metric that they use to measure the game by.

Err the devs themselves use Skyrim as a comparison tool so the media and consumers can be forgiven IMO.

W3 being "open world" doesn't imply doing sidequests in any order you wish IMO... and I prefer some direction anyway. "sandbox games" are a subset of "open world" games that allow you to freely roam and do whatever you want without structure (i.e. skyrim). W3 is simply not a sandbox.

I think that's preferable to me. Most sandbox games are really bland & repetitive when you branch outside of the structured portions of the story. Even RDR got old once you started seeing the same random events.

Anyway...agreed. I never understood why they didn't do a Friday release. Most people are off for the weekend so what better time to start a new game than a Friday night when most people are relaxing. But that would make sense.

Little to no staff will be around to do support/patch related stuff on a weekend and many retailers schedule marketing stuff around flyers which need lead time. Weekend releases as a gamer are great but from a business perspective are more difficult.

The gamespot review is positively gushing, glad I got this as a videocard freebie now Shame it was a review of the PS4 version, I'm anxious to see how the PC holds up.

Everyone got their wish with the Patriots punishment, 4 games, some draft picks and a million bucks is way harsher than I expected.

Save the time, its not very good. Rudimentary space travel flick with a low budget, poor characterization and a shitty filming style.

I like the CD Projekt guys, they have great ideals for gaming in general...but they release buggy as fuck games. Witcher 1 and 2 took months to fix. I will wait and see on this.

Witcher 1 was more problematic than Witcher 2 in my experience, although the latter had some severe crash bugs and was very poorly optimized at release. They got it fixed up pretty quick. I just don't preorder games anymore because its inherently one sided and often a raw deal but I got this as a pack in with my second 970 so *shrug*

Yeah thats how I felt about FO3 vs NV. FO3 had great exploration, lots of cool little touches and stuff to find. NV had better writing and quests, some of them very complex.

It was a pretty good stealth game but it definitely overstays its welcome. I don't think many gamers really want a stealth game set in the Alien universe either, they want the chest pounding colonial marine type stuff.

Saying something is a fact and demonstrating are two different things but I'll let JD dispute what he wants to, I'm not really interested in the particulars. I was just pointing out that an opinion and a fact are two different things. The former can contain the latter but arguing on a factual basis is problematic without demonstration.

And since this is off page one I'm done checking anyway

"In my world, broadband is incredibly competitive," Marcus said.

Is this true for any blues readers? I always find this kind of remark baffling. Granted, I've only lived in Texas, but here, there is never more than 1 single broadband provider for a particular address. Sometimes there are 0. The sole exception is the newly launched but quite limited Google Gigabit in parts of Austin.

It depends on the markets, in the cities you can have 1-3 big companies and a few resellers/independents. In rural areas its basically like one company if you're lucky. Government subsidies were supposed to go into broadband development/infrastructure but instead went to building cellphone networks.

Facts don't need links, backup, or otherwise.

It's not a fact if it can't be demonstrated or verified.

Witcher 3 release window is good, I'm almost wrapped up with Bloodborne and GTA Online is pissing me off with its various loads and wonkiness so I think I'll just hop into that.

It's really just going to bring their efficiency in line with current Nvidia offerings. I'm happy AMD is around to keep Nvidia honest but I feel like their APUs are the only area they're really excelling at this point.
