This has to do with powersupplies, a 3.0 spec from February. I find one on amazon, $270 for 850W, so may be a while before they are more commonly available

Thanks. I'm fed up with JayTwoCents' clickbaiting titles, I know that's how the YouTube game works but it gets tiresome.

I recommend Move It, Network Anarchy, and Picker - but then I would, I write them

If you use workshop assets, Loading Screen Mod Revisited is a must. Find It 2 and Ploppable RICO Revisited are also very useful. Precision Engineering is useful to help with road alignment, and Yet Another Toolbar is handy for a more flexible toolbar.

I don't remember which Mafia game it was, but I played until there was a car race I had to win to progress the storyline. And I failed like a dozen attempts to win that damn race before giving up and uninstalling.

Mafia 2. Hated that mission. I think I had to use a trainer to get past it.

No that is Mafia 1. I think they eventually added a skip the mission via a patch. Mafia 2 has you go to jail in the middle of the game. Pretty annoying.

Years of Gran Turismo prepared me for it though. Just have to take your time and learn to not go too fast around turns.

I stand corrected, it is Mafia 1.

EA has no one to blame but themselves.

The incompetence over such an extended period of time is baffling. It’s been over a decade since Tiburon has released a Madden game that was considered “good”. And EA does absolutely nothing year after year to address the problem. Quality apparently isn’t a concern at all as long as people are buying it.

I can't find a source for this, but I recently about how FIFA development goes - bugs are logged and fixed by severity. Any bugs that remain at launch are then considered unimportant since, hey, the game launched, how bad can these bugs be? So the next year's version is developed with these bugs still present, new bugs are created and again only some of these are fixed. Others are in the game at launch, so again they must be unimportant. Even serious issues, if the release schedule doesn't give the devs time to fix them, they remain in the code in perpetuity.

For years, these build up and up. Occasionally there will be major rewrites of something wiping bugs in that part of the game, but other bugs can remain for decades. Snug as a bug in a repository.

It's not a review, or clickbait, it's an opinion piece about a specific aspect of Saints Row.

This DLC has precisely zero relevance to any mods. I guess they were thinking about using TMPE to sort-of, vaguely replicate this but that was never the same thing and you'd still want TMPE for numerous other reasons.

Yeah it's weird now but those 2.5 years saw such a huge shift.

The use of a separate GPU on a separate card changed the games. Literally.

Yep, that 3dfx Voodoo was quite something. 640x480, gorgeous!

Quake was released two-and-a-half years after DOOM.

Yeah, I know I'm splitting hairs, but I feel like that 2.5 years was an exponential growth, and I don't think Quake and Doom really feel like similar games, other than perspective. Right now, 3DR is kicking out a few different FPS games, some of which use Build, and some of which are 3D, and they feel very different.

Yeah it's weird now but those 2.5 years saw such a huge shift. Now, that's enough time for a sequel that refines the formula a bit (if that, less creative franchises don't even do this) but at the time, that was huge. Wolf -> Doom -> Quake felt like generational jumps that just don't happen now. Still, I do think that there was a gameplay theme that carried through all of these; fast-paced run-and-gun, before chest-high walls appeared everywhere. Whether a game is Doom's 2.5D or scifi inspired, or Quake's 3D or gothic inspired, I can understand collectively calling these boomer shooters / old school shooters / doom clones / 90s shooters / whatever.

Does it annoy anyone? Observing that it technically doesn't make sense isn't annoyance.

Blue wrote on Aug 15, 2022, 16:44:
So the premise being discussed here on a site populated by older gamers is that 30 year-olds were too old to have played DOOM or Quake back in the day?

No? Not sure where you're coming from with this.

Edit: Oh I get it, you mean people who were 30 at the time. I don't think that's the premise, just that they were in a minority compared to Gen-X.

I call them "old-school shooters", although as I type this I realise that's a bit to close to "old school-shooters".

Bring back "Doom-clone", except limit it to actually fast-paced plot-light games rather than any first person game.

lol

You realise this was a criticism of your interpretation, right? Quinn's "they often report posts" comment could apply to a single person and I have no reason to doubt their clarification. I'm no fan of Quinn ("sick to the stomach" over "hurt feelings", yeah ok) but they seem to be right about this detail.

I'm glad Cutter is gone, anyone who breaks the rules so frequently should have been sent packing years ago. I've reported quite a few of his posts, and others like them. On that point, I don't know why anyone would think right-leaning people are moderated more - people who post sexist/racist/etc stuff get posts deleted. I can't imagine why someone who tends to post rather right-leaning viewpoints but who is certain they're not sexist/racist/etc would associate sexist/racist/etc stuff with being right-leaning. Weird.

They've updated the listings to say that the game will still be playable. Ass Creed Liberation and SH5 now say:
"Notice: DLC for this product and online elements and features will become unavailable, as of Sept 1st, 2022. The base game will continue to be playable."
