Leave the Diablo franchise alone (or at least take it in a new direction). Just think it's too soon for them to push out another Diablo game unless they really come at it hard with new ideas, otherwise your going to end up with a Call of Duty situation where they pump out a new one every year.

At this point Im just waiting for Skywind. It might be a couple of more years though, but I can wait.

Chance of Skywind getting completed: 2.75%

Skywind or Star Citizen, shall we start a betting pool?

Beyond the upgraded graphics fx and 64 bit exe, there is NO REASON at all to play this.

Besides it being an awesome game, with so much content that it encourages replays.



I meant the Special Edition. Skyrim with mods STILL looks better then the SE out of the box. I thought they might throw in some better draw distances etc, but nope.

I had some problems with Forza Horizon 3 (again they patched Windows Store AFTER Gears 4 came out) but with about 5 mins of googleing fixed the problem and downloaded Forza 3 at max speed.

From my understanding Respawn owns Titanfall IP, and after the clusterfuck of all the DLC that seperated the community, they did release all DLC for free.

So how is this a bad thing?

Commando duh!

BTW, Skyrim SE, was it suppose to have better textures? Because I started a new character on my way to the 1st city (stormcloak wise), and I looked at the textures (especially in the cart when ya first start) and then loaded up Skyrim with the HD textures and the HD textures look WAY better.

And that's why I use these cheapo keyboards that come with silicone covers. The longevity on my keyboards shot way up when I started using them. In fact I'm only on my second one right now and I bought that 3 years ago. The other one lasted about 3 years too. Once every couple of weeks pull the cove off give it a cleaning - note the still pristine keyboard underneath - and Bob's yer uncle!

If you want something fancier, they do make backlit waterproof keyboards too.

Cutter we know EXACTLY what sort of liquid you're spilling on your keyboards

Well, I had a dandy of a coffee disaster this morning.

In fairness, you are kind of overdue.

But this is a new era for Blue.... the coffee disasters are traveling to other parts of the house....

From what I briefly read.... so ya got those big tubes that sit about 6-8 people, they have high end jets to push the water for a "rapids" effect. and they typically have some sort of either lowering conveyor belt to pull the craft to the load/unload station... so people in water with high jets+belts that can move over 1000lbs=squish

Blue I am not going to click on that spider/mouse link.... love you dearly, but KNOCK THAT SHIT OFF!

Who plays this kind of game?

What kind of game is it anyway, like Simcity, but for farms? The trailer really gives no hint.


I would say outside of the hardcore flight sims (ie: Falcon 5), this is pretty much the Ferrari of Sims. It is a Farming Simulator. So large that there are expensive controls (like flight sims) for it.

News Comments > Watch Dogs 2 Trailer
11. Re: Watch Dogs 2 Trailer Oct 24, 2016, 17:44 The Half Elf
 
GTA 5 vs Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs had more ways to interact with the city, but overall the city was very meh (things to do so not as bad as Mafia 2), where GTA5 had a more 'live' city.
Story wise, GTA 5 had a more fun story that was diverse enough with the 3 characters, Watch Dogs had a revenge/penance story that never conveyed that enough for me to really care about the character (again like how I was pissed about Joe at the end of Mafia 2, or choose option 3 to not kill Mike or Trevor in gta 5).
Watch Dogs gave you more options about how to approach an objective, and made missions more dynamic.

But Watch Dogs suffers from 1st of a series'itis that Ubisoft tends to have. Assassin's Creed 1 wasn't bad, but AC2 was amazing. Far Cry 2 (I don't count Far Cry 1 as it wasn't by the same company) was pretty bleh, and Far Cry 3 was so much better. AC3 was meh but Black Flag nailed the ship parts of the game.. etc. etc.

And Cutter I had no idea where to go to get lumberjacks in San Fran, thanks for the tip, is there any other places you'd recommend to pick up guys while I'm there?
