And you'd think they'd have good ol' American filtered coffee but no. I haven't had a cup of regular old Joe in a month now and I'd just about be willing to kill someone for just one cup. Seriously, even US chains here like Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts only sell espresso based coffee.

Rather would have Red Dead Redemption with the RDR2 engine on PC.

It has been cracked since yesterday and word is it's working perfectly.
"None of the "cracks" posted does actually include properly decrypted .exes, the original encryption is fully intact in all cases....that being said, chances are high that any of the games will crash or malfunction at some point, namely when the code enters one of these encrypted regions..."So, if they're right, you'll run into problems at some point. I haven't had time to play much so I can't confirm. It doesn't seem like any of the 'normal' high-profile crack teams have released it, so I would be extremely cautious. Though, given the fact that legit owners can't even play the frakkin' thing at all (and those of us trying to finish up our RDR2 playthrough can't because of the same problem! Thanks, *R!), maybe it is the better way to go.

Meanwhile people who downloaded the copy from "less reputable sources" are happily playing away.

I ponied up for the Pro, because it's cheaper then a full release with all the "not much being said" portion from EA, and also I HIGHLY hate the EA Windows 10 app and rather run it through Origin.
From the Polygon "review in progress"
The biggest issue with 2042’s traditional Battlefield modes was how often frustrating technical glitches popped up during my time with the game.
All of these impressions of the game are from a three-day remote review event which was hosted by EA and DICE. The event was broken into specific blocks where we played certain modes. However, the matchmaking had several issues and more than a few players (myself included) ran into several crashes. On top of that, there were issues of enemy players disappearing mid-fight, sliding dozens of meters across the ground at random, or dying and getting frozen in running animations, littering the warzone with dozens of fake corpses that made finding real enemies an unwelcome additional challenge.

Rest in Peace Dean Stockwell. One last Quantum Leap into the unknown
"In all your travels, have you ever seen a star go supernova? ...
I have. I saw a star explode and send out the building blocks of the Universe. Other stars, other planets and eventually other life. A supernova! Creation itself! I was there. I wanted to see it and be part of the moment. And you know how I perceived one of the most glorious events in the universe? With these ridiculous gelatinous orbs in my skull! With eyes designed to perceive only a tiny fraction of the EM spectrum. With ears designed only to hear vibrations in the air. ...
I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays! I want to hear X-rays! And I want to-...I want to smell dark matter! Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly because I have to- I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid limiting spoken language! But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws! And feel the wind of a supernova flowing over me!
I'm a machine! And I can know much more! I can experience so much more. But I'm trapped in this absurd body! And why?!?
Because my five creators thought that God wanted it that way!”

Hey! Bite your tongue, bud! My 2060 isn't 'slow'! (I know, I know, I'm being facetious)
Your cards so slow it would be a window licker - except it's not capable of rendering a window
Your cards so slow there's an emulator for it on the gameboy
Your cards so slow it bottlenecks an SD Card.
A 2060 you say? I'd buy one but my motherboard doesn't have an AGP slot.

I totally agree, I certainly won't be an early adopter of Z690+DDR5 and I don't encourage anyone to do so, unless they have money to burn. Hoping to get my hands on Zen4 next year. Already got the piggy bank half full to pay off the scalpers.

Exactly, so wouldn't be nice to have something like that? I guess you could have it emailed to you in an alert-type format but I was thinking of maybe having some kind of star or something next to the 'Discussion Forums' on the left-hand menu or somewhere in the 'User Settings' when you have something like those others that aren't part of an alert. I dunno, like I said, it was just a thought.

Subscribing to a thread only emails you when a post has been added.
If I'm not mistaken,
There are no alerts or emails for the following: "someone edited their post, someone deleted their post, a post was struck down..." etc.

Just refund it at this point.
What game store do you know of that has a 10+ month refund policy.
After the court ruling against Valve in Australia, in 2017, I refunded Assassin's Creed Unity after 3 years and ~30hrs game time. In fact, I went through my Steam library and did the same thing for every game that was a buggy mess that had never been patched properly. I was able to cite the issues with each game and how they were still buggy/never fixed. I ended up with around $400 AUD in refunds.

Rigs, gonna say this in the nicest way possible. Just refund it at this point. X says it's good, Y says it's good Z says add a few mods and it's good..... what else are you expecting from a game you haven't even played, and won't play?
Shit or get off the pot, because the only person you're hurting is yourself. Go enjoy the game!
