Welp, so much for buying either one now. I had been considering PC1, but now that they're already moving onto a new game? Fuck that. Bye bye, Slightly Mad. I won't be buying any of your products.

they stated that the FuryX is running very cool, and is a overclockers dream. so I don't think heat will be a problem. And that is contradicting your statement about them pushing the clocks..
And according to reviews of the "new" 390X is running cooler than a lot of the nvidia's
MSI Radeon R9 390X Gaming 8G OC review - Graphics Card Temperatures

AMD have said the the Fury X will be an "overclockers dream", stating that their water cooler is capable of dissipating 500W of thermal energy, while the R9 Fury X only has a TDP of 275W while under maximum load.

Um... Of COURSE it's cooler. It is fucking liquid cooled. They won't make an air-cooled version because the thing would burn itself up.

In Skyrim in particular, I kept installing mods thinking it could "make the experience better" but it felt kind of shallow and largely headache inducing when it broke my saves.

Same damn shit happened to me, and I'm unsure what to do about it. I kinda wanna finish the game, but I haven't been back to it for many months. :\

As far as all this buildup and hype goes, I learned long ago never to board the hype train. 99% of the time, when a game has this much PR lip service, it usually ends up terrible. The one exception to this trend that I can think of is The Witcher 3. However, it seems like every time there's all this bullshit flying around like "OMFG THIS IS GONNA BE THE BEST THING EVER," it usually falls extremely short of that mile marker. I never understood the attraction to Fallout anyway. I could never really get into it and it didn't really impress me, so I don't even get why all this hype exists in the first place.

AMD's conference was painful to watch. I hadn't seen one of their presentations before so I don't know if that's the norm for them, but it was pretty terrible. I don't trust that their new generation cards are anything special, and if anything, I worry about their heat generation with them feeling the need to ship the highest end offering with a liquid cooling solution. Ouch.

That's because they had to push the clocks so damn high in order to have a chance at competing. HBM probably also generates a fair amount of heat on its own. I don't think the 980 Ti really has anything to worry about.

"I played 5 games, so I hate DOTA2."

Thanks for admitting your complete incompetence and invalidity of your opinion.

HotS is nowhere near as complex, deep, nuanced, or strategic as DOTA2. It has a huge learning curve, yes, but the rewards are greater than just about any other game I've played. At the same time, it can be just as crushing and frustrating though. Do well, and you love it. Do badly, and you hate it. You're probably in that latter camp.

Hah!... If anything your complete lack of empathy for a new DOTA 2 (in extension MOBA) player shows everything that is wrong with that community and why my first experiences in that moba were abysmal. And yeah, 5 plays vs humans is plenty enough to judge a moba after 30+ to learn how to play vs AI with a few chars and with COOP partner, that's how many I gave each MOBA I tried, DOTA 2, LoL and HotS. The shit-hole that is DOTA 2 ranked matches completely soured me from playing DOTA 2 altogether because of that constant toxicity even in the lowest ranked game modes.

Aside that it doesn't even matter, with 1000+ hours you have about as much reason to talk about casual MOBA play as Obama has owning the peace Nobel price. ^^

Your first sentence invalidated everything afterward, so I didn't bother reading that drivel.

You already said you're not a DOTA player, so you're not a new player. You already gave up. Like a fucking pussy.

Please return to your cave, troll.

Sorry, but after HotS I can never go back to DOTA 2 ;p The removal of items, and the lanes no longer being sticky as fuck due to gold/xp only counting if you are involved in that kill, makes the game infinitely more smooth and fluid. It rewards strategic movement away from the lanes towards objectives and camps which believe it or not, can even happen in quick games. Maintaing the lanes is not even important anymore, as even a team pushed back to the citadel can turn an ENTIRE GAME AROUND by overwhelming an enemy that overextends their push.
You listed everything I DISLIKE about HotS. The lack of items makes for a more repetitive experience; the objectives mean everybody piles into one lane and it's chaos; the limited heroes ruin the experience and requires you to grind to unlock them.

I'm really looking forward to Dota 2 Reborn. I've put 160hrs into Dota 2 and it's one of my go to games.

I decided to check mine, and Steam says I have 1085 hours. Holy shit! How did that happen? :O

I'd never played a MOBA before DOTA2, and it was a jarring thing to have to learn. I remember the first game I played, knowing absolutely nothing about the game beforehand, I rushed down the middle lane, fully expecting to be able to fight right off the bat. I dove into the first tower and started attacking it, thinking that's what you're supposed to do. I got obliterated in seconds, obviously. My teammates immediately let me know that's now how things work in DOTA. Oops! :\

Since then, it's been an everlasting learning experience. Even after nearly 1100 hours, I'm still learning tactics and how to play. I love when a game has so much replayability, especially with only one map. It's astounding.

Yes, you can and should sell mutes to most herbalists and some random shop vendors.

Thanks, I'll try that. Been playing DOTA2 the last couple of days to give myself a bit of a breather from this game. I'm still taking my time trying to complete side quests and shit. I should just move along with the story since I can always come back, but my OCD won't let me. :\

Also anytime you load in somewhere, if you have mutagens equipped you're going to have to re equip them because they get shuffled around and your stats will lower. Every time.

Anyways its a great game and I'm really enjoying it. Just mentioning a few quirks so people have a heads up.

This has never happened to me. They stay put where they are and buff my same-type character points.

What annoyances? I haven't played in a week. been kind of busy.

Can you let me know what they messed up or changed?

Its with the mutagen crafting, you have to sometimes drop one to make another, especially if you're shooting for greater mutagens. It's weird, I'll take a video demoing it on Youtube later when I get home from work.

OK, thanks dude.

You mean how it now says "you already have this?" That's fucking stupid. You used to be able to combine like crazy, now they just hang around in your inventory and just kind of take up space. Can you sell mutagens? I never tried. Would be nice to be able to upgrade them and sell the unneeded ones or something. But now they work like potions or whatever where you make one, and then that's it. :/

You mean the head art director and lead voice actor? Those bad acting hipster cunts?

If that's who they are, then yes. I fail to see how their job title changes a damn thing.

"and still, not once was the self-driving car the cause of the accident."

I beg to differ. I bet in the majority, the car WAS the cause. Look at it. It's fucking distracting. People gawk and are all like, "What's that?" Maybe try making it less conspicuous...

jdreyer wrote on Jun 6, 2015, 14:21:
I've been talking about self-driving cars for 25 years. Glad that I've lived to see it. At some point, driving yourself will become an anachronism.

Why waste the money on one? Just take the bus if you don't want to drive. I don't understand the appeal of this. I LOVE driving. It's basically the whole reason I have a car. That is never going away.

Definitely picking up the controller. My pc is already hooked up to an hdtv so... no real benefit there.

449 is pretty good. Less than half what my friend paid for his mac that he bought to "get into pc gaming".

What kind of "friend" are you ?

PC gaming on a mac. HAHAHAHAHAHH!!! Someone's friend was trolling him.

Pfft. I actually like Google+ a lot. I never had a Facebook and never will, but I find an extremely active community in Google+, and it is about my interests rather than a bunch of annoying people I know in real life. That's what I like about it most. I get to meet new people with whom I share common interests. I've met many people in real life through Google+. The media likes to bash it, but whatever. Fuck sites that parrot that mediocre sentiment, pandering to the worthlessness that is Facebook and its ilk. >:\
