Retails hitting Amazon through Whole Foods.

I drink the Amazon koolaid. That being said, I refuse to buy anything from Whole Foods. I will go to a coop before I spend money on overpriced crap at WF. I also don't shop at Lunds or Byerlys. Time and time again it is proven you are paying a premium for having carpet on the floor and them bagging your groceries for you. Even their produce in some stores as well as their meat was linked to the same places as Cub and Rainbow. Derp. (There was a huge lawsuit here in MN)

Last week on the news
iPhone 7 outselling iPhone 8, customers citing lack of new features and ridiculous price tag

This week, as Apple shares slide:
Apple quits selling iPhone 7

Wow. Dick move Apple. I have the 6 and never plan on buying a product anyway. They are crap and I am tired of the PAY FOR EVERYTHING model. I'll buy a Samsung product I can increase space on as well as load whatever I want on it.

Like an MMO? I don't understand what they mean by building this game as a service.

What is any software service? It means monthly fees and transactions instead of a one time purchase. Yeah I don't imagine that'll go over well. These guys need a reality check. Sooner or later this game will fade as all flavors of the month do. The reason some games like CS have longevity is because they're free.

I'm picturing more of a Team Fortress 2 model. Keep the community alive with constant updates, lots of little cosmetics players can buy, a lively competitive scene. Games As Service doesn't necessarily mean Subscription Fees anymore.

*DING

Which is exactly what he says, but for some reason no one bothered to read the yellow text.

Hearing a lot of bad out of TwitchCon. Even those who work there are very tight lipped for fear of getting fired - but doesn't seem like streamers or employees are happy since Amazon took over.

I am sure a different streaming service will take over in the next 16 months.

How is FOV and does it feel like a console game?

Did you not try the beta? FOV is scales from 55-105, and performance was good in general. Destiny itself never really felt like much of a console game to begin with.

It's not going to change the world or anything, but I got quite a lot out of Destiny and expect to get quite a lot out of Destiny 2. It's what Borderlands would be if it took itself seriously and had an at least competent if not evolutionary competitive component.

Now I am interested.....

Grabbed a Steam Link for 1.00. Worth the risk to try it out, don't really need it put interested in it. It isn't offered with any other game bundle - wondering if all orders will be cancelled.

Compare to Skyrim, where you don't really play a character, and where you're always annoyed that you're known by sight as the best warrior ever but morons keep talking down to you and challenging you to fights. Somehow I never felt like The Witcher 3 had this issue, even if I was still world renowned...

They actually made a little tongue in cheek joke about that in Blood & Wine. There's a bandit camp off all the way to one side of the map, the bandits attack you as soon as they see you, you slaughter them of course, and Geralt deadpans "I never understand why people would willingly attack an armed Witcher."

Which is so true. I mean, Geralt should be very well known (ESPECIALLY in Toussaint) at that point. Plenty of people shout at him and call him the Butcher of Blaviken after a mere glance, and of course it's immediately evident that he's a Witcher because of his eyes. And yet bandits will still happily attack him.


They have done such an amazing job with the games and keeping it close to lore and cannon. The books are amazing if anyone here HASN'T read them. Most are translated with more to come. I have read them more than once. Easy reads as the lore is a set of short stories of a legend. Amazing.

Looks like you also get the Stick of Truth w/purchase, not just pre-purchase.

POST LAUNCH:
If you decide to buy South Park: The Fractured But Whole DIGITALLY after release (Oct. 17, 2017) from either the Uplay Store, Steam, the PlayStation Store, Xbox Marketplace, or other eligible PC digital stores*, you will receive South Park The Stick of Truth immediately as a download unlock for your platform.

I felt ripped off that I bought Stick of Truth at launch (shame on me). Don't need another copy I won't play....

Last I played PUBG, the whole *feel* of the game was just as clunky and unpleasant as Day Z. The hype and success of the game is one huge mystery to me. I will never get to understand it, I am certain...

Hasn't felt like that in a LOOOOOONG time. I can't play DAYzzzzzzz. PUBG feels nothing like it.

Escape from Tarkov is more like Dayz. Slower reaction, not as snappy, but that is on purpose. More sim than arcade.

Whoa, look at the surprise dark horse in #1 !
j/k

Itís absurdly unstoppable on the sales chart. Maybe it has to do with those 9,000 bans per day.

Did you even bother to think about the math there before you posted?

5 weeks from 10 mil to 15 mil purchasers.
9,000 a day * 30 days = 270,000.

Now I realize these are rough estimates, but even being very conservative with the numbers (such as taking the 13k a day top end of ban numbers, still would be under 10%), it doesn't change that's less than 10% of the actual player growth if every single banned player just buys another account.

Unlike a lot of other games that brag about total players (who probably played once then never again), we can see actual simultaneous players (2+ million) reflecting actual sales. We see top of steam sales charts week after week. Valve has no reason to make any of those facts or numbers up, in fact just the opposite, they'd prefer their own game not to be overshadowed by this.

These are real numbers. Real growth. New blood coming in as the game grows.

Rebuying from bans is very little of this.


Just imagine when the new map comes out! Pumped for a large update.

Side note, Escape From Tarkov went from Alpha to Beta and is about to have a very large update. Great game as well.

I'm curious as to how you narrowed it down to the psu.

I've seen this type of behavior in the past. and yea, it was related to the psu when you put to much load on it. Its either over heating and shuts down, or its just a bad capacitor or other component thats causes it to shut down the power to the psu.


Have you tried a program similar to Afterburner to look and see what is going on graphically?

Whats the issue? You can't control yourself and buy them? YOU DON'T NEED TO BUY THEM TO ENJOY THE GAME OR BEAT THE GAME!?

The argument was never "you need to buy them to beat the game". It's gambling bullshit in a singleplayer game that does not belong there. Your argument defeats itself anyway. If they're so meaningless and harmless then they don't need to be in the product at all. And if no one buys them because they're meaningless, what do you think will happen in the future? Like take 10 seconds and think about the logical conclusion here. You don't think they will adjust design to ensure they make more money? I guess you have more faith in publishers than I do. I know where this leads in a few years time because I've watched it happen to the mobile market and we all know publisher behavior in general. This money doesn't go to the developers.

I feel the argument is equivalent to options on a vehicle. I buy the LIMITED edition because I enjoy the comforts that come with it. Is the moon roof, power running boards, leather heated seats, heated steering wheel, etc. needed to drive the vehicle? Nope. But they are there if people want them. I didn't buy the King Ranch truck because I don't need the things it has. I also didn't buy the Lariat, or the Eddie Bauer. But I am not mad that they offer them....

A flawed car analogy. If they want to sell a copy of the game labeled LIMITED EDITION (something publishers already fucking do) with dialed up loot drop rates to encourage more people to buy them then go ahead. At least that's up front. And by the way they should publish the odds on the box, even the lottery has to do that shit. If these motherfuckers want to be in the gambling game then they should be regulated like everyone else.

I couldn't disagree with you any more than I already have.
