And pay up to $400 for it, pfft... I'm glad I was able to put my order in the first night, but now I'm thinking I should've ordered several, lol.

Unfortunately, about half the ?'s in Skellige are smuggler's caches floating in the sea, filled with worthless loot.

Interesting that they only have the one DLC for this week...

It just makes it that much more worth it when you finally beat that boss and loot his corpse!

There's a bug a lot of people seem to be experiencing, including myself, that old worlds may not show up in-game. I expect a hotfix for this soon because they've always been compatible.

There is so much new stuff, it's fucking bonkers. So far, all I've done is run around a bit on a fresh map with an end-game character I still had saved to see some of the new items, but I intend to completely start over soon. It's may very well be the best value for the money you can find on Steam (barring free games that can technically be considered having infinite value for the money :p).

To put the click-bait in context, Hines is referring to a hypothetical situation where they launched the mobile game sooner than the FO4 announcement. I guess they could have done so last year, but people would have been pissed that they get a mobile game when they've been clamoring for proper Fallout, and so the decision was made to wait.

5 cents is nothing compared to the $2-3 ATM fees people routinely pay for the convenience of withdrawing money at the gas station/grocery store/strip club rather than their own bank's locations. An increasing number of businesses charge a flat ~35-cent fee for debit card transactions, too, if they accept it at all (credit card fees are generally subsidized by the issuing company AFAIK). A much larger number of people pay that, without hesitation. "Real" money has plenty of fees of its own.

I don't think they are talking steam machines, steam isn't making the steam machines are they? Not surprised about the other, esp the controller, lots of people interested and willing to try.

No they're not. Valve themselves only sell the controller and Steam Link.

Well, it's a racing game, the main thing is making the cars look good. Everything else is just a blur, so it's a waste to put a lot of effort in pushing the boundaries of graphical fidelity to the point you're straining performance.

DiRT games have often been used as benchmarks in GPU reviews, but it's kind of moot when you're comparing 150 fps with this card to 180 in that one, etc.

I realize that but surely some of his massive 'dive-into-the-pile-ScroogeMcDuck-style' of money is still invested in some way?


=-Rigs-=

Why would it be? He sold his stake in the company specifically to be done with the whole thing. He's not interested in Minecraft anymore, or anything to do with that company. He was seen as the head honcho who calls all the shots at Mojang even after they had a new CEO and lead for Minecraft, and he didn't want to continue to be held responsible for things being done he had nothing to do with anymore. It'd be pretty silly to sell your shares, only to take some of that money and buy some back... Is that what you're asking?

I bet that makes the whole Elder Scrolls thing TOTALLY WORTH IT!

That's what I was thinking.

I'm sure it was, to Notch, when he was personally involved and just as annoyed as the rest of us at the supposed "infringement." It wasn't about the money to him. What he spent in that litigation is probably less than it costs him to refill his candy machines now.

There's law and then there's having to live next to some who despises you.

For $800 it wasn't worth having a neighbor hate you IMO - not when you were flying a drone over his property. The entire thing could have been resolved with a request for permission.

The law was right - you can't just shoot crap when you don't know what it is. That's the height of stupidity and the first thing you learn not to do in gun training.

The dude flying the drone was still a goober. He crossed over an unspoken rule of country living.


He was flying it on his own property. Well, he said he was. Supposedly when it fell it landed 200 feet within the boundary on his side.

The music was the best part of BF:V. Sadly, I doubt they'd have the same caliber of soundtrack if they make a sequel, let alone with the ability to blare it from any vehicle you're in.

Nope. They announced alongside this trailer at E3 that there will be no wipes. All progress you make now carries into the full release.

It honestly doesn't even feel like an alpha, it is more polished than many "complete" games are. They are fully developing little chunks of content at a time, then refining balance and smaller bugs as they go. It's a point of pride for them that they do NOT want anyone playing a new map until they've got it completely fleshed out and ready.

My anecdotal evidence is my R9 290 has has ZERO driver issues with every single game i've tried.
Yet I only find thread after thread of bashing AMD cards.

disclaimer: I have had both AMD and Nvidia cards over the years, I have no allegiance to either. Just a few days ago I ordered an 980Ti based off of the latest benchmarks showing that the Fury X does not in fact wipe the floor with the green team

Links or it didn't happen...

The FURY X (i'm waiting for the Nano, personally) isn't all about pure speed, which is pretty much the only thing you green tossers care about. It has a 4096-bit memory interface! What's the 980 got? 256-bit. Blech! HBM memory is going to wipe the floor with Nvidia this go 'round and they know it which is why they're abandoning GDDR for it too! The FURY X is the first step to AMD's (or a resurgent ATI possibly, if the spinoff rumors are true) video card domination... *evil laugh*


=-Rigs-=

980 Ti has 384-bit memory, but still, the way you're getting moist over that one figure implies you think jumping to 4096-bit correlates with a proportional increase in performance... It doesn't. It's a gimmick. The Fury X has 512 GB/s memory bandwidth compared to the 980 Ti's 336 GB/s, and it still barely keeps up.

I can forgive them the lack of customization since they spend so much time and effort intricately detailing and animating every single weapon they release. Maybe they add different attachments later on, but I don't think it's as simple as in other games where you just slap in a slightly different model to reflect the change you've made. Plus being able to put on a scope or something runs counter to the diversity they're building in for each class; there will be a sniper guy with his own long-range weapons, they're just not done yet.
