I was also getting random disk usage spikes to 100% for a min or so, wehn back to 8.1 and everything is fast with zero problems.

I'm getting the same spike on one of my computers on a Samsung SSD. My other computer, also with an SSD, works just fine though. Spikes last around 20 seconds. Incredibly annoying. Boot time for me is fine though at 20 seconds with the latest nvidia drivers.

Don't sign in with a microsoft account. Better yet... don't even create one.

I fucked up yesterday and did this. After creating a local account I wanted to check out this super-fast version of Minecraft for Windows 10. So I sign in to the store via my Live account to grab it. Step away from computer for a few minutes and it locks. Come back and it wants my Live account password to unlock the screen, which is a randomized 24 character string that I don't know (I copy/paste it from the vault). Motherfuck. Stupid thing switched from local account to online account. Ended up having to go in to work just to open my vault and get the password. Stupid fucking thing. Lesson learned though. Avoid the store at all costs.

Thanks for all the feedback. Sound like a waste of money, even at $5 or so.

I enjoyed it. At $5 it would be well worth it IMO. Just don't go in to it thinking it's a Thief game.

I'll buy it. The Don't Starve games are fun. It gets a bit tedious later in the game though when I have to keep chopping trees. At least food gets easier. One of the more enjoyable survival games I've played.

Even if I remotely thought about playing WoW again, I would probably just wander around all the abandoned areas. Everyone just flocks to the new zones from what I've read.

This is a major issue with WoD. Nobody flocks to new zones (Tanaan aside) because they're all sitting in their garrison. There's no reason to go anywhere. You can queue to anything. You can get resources in your garrison (herbs and mining). Tanaan is crap anyway unless you loved crystal farming and wanted to do it multiple times a day. Aside from the boss, there's no reason to go there once you finish rep grinding for flying.

I really wish they'd bring back a Dalaran type city so I know other people exist in the world.

This seems early considering the last one came out just last year.

'cause WoD sucks and they want to sweep it away. The leveling up experience was awesome. But the end-game is crap. Only 1 content patch (compared to 3+ for others). Putting a vendor in my garrison doesn't count as content (6.1). While I'm bitching, shipyards are pure shit. Worst mechanic in the whole game. BAH I say!

Anyway.. I'll be glad to move on to the next expansion. I just pray it isn't orc related.

Stim packs are like 150% gold gain, 100% XP gain.

Shit, really?? ... I should use mine. 150% gold would be awesome.

I feel like they completely missed the nostalgia train on this one.

Yeah, I'm trying to get excited about it, but I'm not digging the art style. I figure I'll watch some Let's Plays and then decide from there. I want it to succeed because King's Quest was such a huge part of my gaming, but I have my doubts.

I really want to grab this game but it's £50 / $78 on Steam, which is pathetic (new AAA games are usually £30-35 / $47-55). I can pick it up for £16 / $25 but it activates on GOG.com, whereas I own the other games on Steam and don't like managing multiple accounts.

I started diversifying my game library and buying from GOG when I can. I realized I had hundreds of games on Steam, and if anything ever happens to that account, they're all gone until it's resolved (if ever). The DRM free installers and cheaper prices helps too. And Galaxy makes the patching process easy to use.

Awesome. Settlers II is still one of my favorite games. Screenshots don't look too bad either.

Some of the stuff you can do in ARK....

Village and Ocean Platform

Underwater Base

The resources needed to build these things make me twitch. I was happy when I got my first bed in a little shack.

I don't think I've done PvP in WoW (on purpose) since Wintergrasp. I really miss that zone.

That's a long negotiating process for one game.

Well this is Valve we're talking about.

Businesses still have to pay a shitload for the upgrade and support.

I think it would of made a lot more people upset by not giving them a reset (something they do after every major patch) because of the vast changes to the passive tree, especially with the additions of jewels.

Oh I agree. They definitely should allow a reset. I just hate the idea of reassigning the whole thing and figuring out what has changed.

Excellent. Been looking forward to this patch.

<passive skills reset>

Dammit. Guess not. I appreciate them giving us a free reset, but the last time they did it, it took me an hour or more to set it back up. Gonna have to wait until I'm more bored than usual to go through that again.
