I would argue a couple of extras for gfx cards.

ATI rage 3d was one of the first proper gfx cards. Wolfenstein 3d used it and it became a decent 2d backbone for the orchid righteous 3d voodoo.

ATI3850 was a hit due to its over clocking. With a decent refit of cooling and thermal paste they were overclockable beyond the 3870.

PowerVR kyro2 was an unsung hero. Half the price of the gforce 2 at the time and a unique rendering approach. Weak drivers let it down. Almost all gfx used the same approach afterwards.

the quick way round will be to say that the loot boxes arent paid for by money but in game currency. Which of course you can buy for money if you like or earn by grinding.

This game had so much potential (coming from NS mod). But the devs refusal to support mods properly from early days basically turned a lot of people away, only the talented servers that took time to butcher the game garner players. The game soon died off and is only really played by hardcore players now. It is hard to get a decent game and I havent been in this for years now.

A long shout from the old 187combat server days.

A nice little something. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-53253195 looks like loot boxes might take a turn for the worse over here. About time too.

D3 was ok for me for a number of reasons, I had 3 mates playing right from the start, we could all get in on launch night. I had a couple of really good witch doctor drops, they went for millions in the early days of the auction house - I did well out the AH. Obviously the chinese gold farmers moved in and the AH went from bad to laughable. I took a break at this point and came back before the xpansion part, enjoyed the "new" horadric cube (at the time) etc, played for a couple more years then quit after a couple of seasons (I never participated in a "season" reroll as that's not my bag). Got my money worth but dont feel the need to reinstall and play where I left off.

i'd give D4 a shot. I played D3 from open night, took a break and came back when it was polished. Had enough fun to justify the cost so I dont mind.

Since I work in a power plant that's not going to happen. Either that or the OH will get very angry.

Surely if you have the money you simply buy a 1gig bearer and get symmetrical 1gig? That's what our company does. With a 4 hour SLA this costs us just over 8k a year. The backup line is point to point wireless at 100/100.

Darthmodded empire total war was my favourite of the lot. Although the age old 'how many units can my phalanx kill on a bridge" was a high point of my original Rome total war.

In reality, 6 hours from broke to a billion in credits and a couple of good ships. Then you can figure out which direction you want to take. I've been playing for years and have jumped on every gold rush for credits but mining was the most reliable credit earner. Shame fdev killed 'demand' for void opals because blowing up asteroids for their cores was more fun.

As for carriers, I begrudge paying even 250million a year for downtime fees so I'm not bothering.

Single/dual core high speed is still relevant though. Super parellelism is still not amazingly widespread in gaming. There will always be exceptions but I don't know any game that bottlenecks my 9600k (all cores 5ghz on air). Like everything, a balance is in order as not everyone can afford a cherry picked 16core high GHz with super gfx.

Its a good game. Quite old now but strangely addictive.

Nice one on the cat. Our spaniel actually managed to grab a grey squirrel last weekend. He wasnt clamping down on it but wouldnt let it go either and it was freaking out. Not even the usual biscuit treat worked. After a few minutes of making unholy noises he finally let it go.

CiV4 is still the benchmark for me. 5 was lukewarm, 6 isnt too bad but you need rise and fall as a minimum.
