Why even bother continuing the series name if they're getting rid of what makes the franchise identifiable as such?

I was looking at AMD CPU a few months ago and I could not find one without a wraith cooler included. I had a build planned with a water cooler and didn't want to pay the garbage OEM cooler tax. I figured that the majority of users buying individual CPUs would rather use the cooler of their choice, but I guess I've been proven wrong.

The 1700x ships without a cooler iirc.

I hope they fix the crashes (or the new windows spring update fixes them) because right now I have to play it on a lowly backup machine with a radeon RX550 with mostly everything on low.

Wonder what the split is between PC and consoles, they have to be pulling numbers big enough from PC to justify Red Dead Redemption 2 port, right?


Steamspy has it at slightly over 10 million owners, I got it on on sale at GMG and that was via a rockstar social club account not sure how to track that but should at least be viable enough to port it with those nr's.

Lately I've been thinking that the main problem with Linux gaming is that they missed the boat and that the gaming industry is too big and has too much money involved to allow for a competitor to Windows. No matter how good or performant they make Linux gaming, it just won't happen unless Microsoft completely ruins Windows for gaming somehow.

There was an opportunity early on, when teams and budgets were smaller and publishers weren't so unwilling to experiment. But now these companies feel they can't afford to take the leap and spend money developing for a platform with such a small install base and hoping people move over.

There's very little financial incentive to support Linux gaming, and it has no big time backers now that Valve seems to be abandoning it.

It's just the old Catch 22 problem.

Valve can semi easily fix this, all they have to do is release HL2 ep3 on steamos only followed 6 months to 1 year later by HL3 (as long as they don't suck)

I think that's one of Valves big misstakes with these machines, they did not bring out new games for it themselves.

Without Microsoft doing anything terribly egregious to Windows or gaming on windows, Steam Machines were destined to have a "chicken before the egg" problem... that is, Valve needed gamers to switch to Linux to get publishers to make their games compatible with that platform. I still think gaming on Linux is a better future than the status quo, but gamers didn't show Linux support with their wallets, and neither did I for that matter.

The average gamer needs a better performing and more user friendly version of Linux b4 making the transition and that wont happen just because they dont transition, you are right with the chicken and egg conundrum.

Microsoft did piss off a lot of people with win10 so there is a market for a chance in OS, especially when win7 will hit EOL in 1.5 years orso.

Do they also have a free pack to make the game any good? played it on PS4, waste of money that was.

The game does look decent, much better then persona 5 which I'm currently playing, but is not even half as much fun gameplay wise.

Good for HZD, itís fantastic. I keep meaning to play Frozen Wilds, but I recently (finally) decided to play thru the Witcher 3 expansions.

Frozen wilds is not bad, a bit short maybe, but there are some brutal enemies in there.

Maybe they can buy what's left of 3drealms and bring out another anniversary edition of DN3D.

On a more serious note they could buy obsidian and let them do their thing. Might get some nice games out of it.

I've played all the Diablos and would happily pay for new content (chapters/acts/expansion/D4). All my buddies would too. Really a strange approach by Bliz. They have a great brand on their hands and seem content to just barely maintain the game.

They don't add tons, but they do add stuff every now and then necromancer beeing one of them, they also added some new environnements around that time.

I would not mind a new full fledged expansion, but i think we will get D4 b4 we get that, game is pretty old by now.

I got this game bundled with a video card recently, and the graphics are great, the shooting mechanics are tight and responsive, but how the hell is it this hard to figure out the looting, months(a year?) after release?

Every item I loot is basically an incrementally better item(or the same) as what I have currently, I'm not sure when the game ever starts dropping game changing loot, but I'm already level 18? out of 25.

How does it compare with Borderlands? There were a lot of junk guns in there, too, but every now and then you'd find something substantially better. Also, part of the fun was just trying out the wild random combinations.

I prefer borderlands by far, but I like the borderlands universe and art style a lot more, I had a bit of fun with destiny 2 untill it started crashing my pc every 10 min orso, given up on it till they fix the crashes, not holding my breath though as the don't seem to care much about technical problems seeing they have enough problems keeping what little players they have left in the game with all their shenanigans.

Tons of people on their forums trying to get even a reaction they are working on it, but they keep mostly silent.

It was a solid addition to the franchise but nothing spectacular and, as a fan of the series, although you came to like the characters and their boy band feel, they were largely forgettable with very shallow back stories and almost no mystery. The open world, dungeons, and combat were highly enjoyable however. Just nothing of note to make a lasting impression like some previous titles.

My biggest criticism is that a lot of the "big moments" in the story fall flat or happen off screen and you are told about them through just talking to random NPCs. Where the game starts you off with a good open world experience and group mechanics, the second half of the game is literally on rails (you spend a good portion of it riding a train), limited environments, and all your group/character building is thrown out the window till the very end. The story wraps up nicely, but the second half of the game needed a lot more love.

There was no real depth to the combat system. 1, 5, even 20 hours into the game it just plays exactly the same with no real progression. It's OK and even threatens to be fun sometimes but it just goes nowhere interesting. The story doesn't make a lot of sense unless you buy all of the DLC, watch 2 fucking movies and read the in-game "lore". The game also has one of the worst battle camera implementations of all time.

The amount of cut content was just absurd and I can't support Square anymore with that kind of shit going on. Their new CEO even said that's the norm and fuck that. They can learn to make games on a regular schedule instead of over 10 years and being forced to ration out content to make back their lavish budgets.

The bullshit they did at release was hilarious too, can only accept 1 hunt at a time fuck right off.

I found it completely underwhelming, the combat was realy lackluster, good thing I started horizon zero dawn after finishing it or I would have never even bothered to try, worst FF game I ever laid my hands on.
