Forgive my Fortnite ignorance, but is a new map really that exciting?

It seems it's a lot more than just a new map.

I don't play Fortnite (I've tried it, but I suck at building), but put your opinions aside...This is a pretty cool event. They've gone outside the box, IMO, and have drawn attention, tons of press, lots of theories, etc. I'm entertained by it and am looking forward to see what they reveal.

Yeah I thought it was pretty cool. I imagine it'll lead to a completely new map or something.

Err.. what Kx? Wrong topic?

Well, I figured that maybe "spit out an entire boat" was a gay euphemism that I wasn't aware of.

I practically spit up my drink at that.


As for the technology, SWEET! Up next, replicators!

Blizzard really doesn't know, it just kind of depends what the Chinese government wants them to do, you know? It's hard to predict that.

It's asinine to include 4k textures as part of a standard download.


Speechless

Well, get a bigger SSD, they are pretty cheap these days?

Yeah but few people have their internet speeds go up to match...

I'm fortunate that AT&T has me on ~ 30Mbits, so this is still somewhat manageable, but there are plenty of people who are on way slower connections for whom a game of this magnitude simply just isn't feasible to download anymore. (On my old internet connection I was on ~ 3 years ago, the 150 GB download would have taken 19 straight DAYS 24/7 downloading. And that's then 19 days where everything else turns to slow dogshit because your pipe is swamped.)

I get that 4K textures eat up a gargantuan amount of space, but for those people who do not have 4K monitors, why do I have to download 90GB of textures I will not use? Why can't I forego the 4K textures, and then download them in the future if I ever want/need them? Oh wait, that would add two more hours of work for a guy to code that, clearly that's unacceptable.

Company xxx "incorrectly charged" customers.

We used to just call this fucking THEFT. But I guess if it's a corporation we just chalk it up to "an honest mistake" that they've now made roughly 15000 times in a row. And everyone who doesn't complain about it is out of there money.

These fuck-ass corporations put "incorrect billing" on their balance sheet as a revenue item. I guess it's all good. It's America! Love the corporations! They are your friends! Let them police themselves! What could go wrong?

I wish I "got" the love for Witcher 3. The story was great but I found the actual quests so boring. Just go to the marker on the map over and over. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it.

Isn't "go to the marker on the map over and over" pretty much every RPG ever?

150 gigs of epic tumbleweed boredom.

Could you post your top 10 favorite games of the last decade here? Seriously, I wanna know.

Sure, just off the top of my head and I'm not gonna put them in order (too hard choosing which ones go where):

1) Witcher series (especially 2 and 3)
2) Batman Arkham series
3) AssCreed Black Flag
4) Pillars of Eternity GOTY + Deadfire Obsidian Edition
5) Elite Dangerous
6) Divinity series
7) Dragon Age Origins GOTY (juuuuuhhhhhhssst within the decade ) + Inquisition GOTY was alright, too, 'cept the retarded Trespasser DLC
8) Mass Effect 2 + 3
9) Skyrim
10) Alpha Protocol
11) Wolfenstein New Order + Old Blood
12) Hellblade
13) DCS
14) Ghost Recon Wildlands
15) Far Cry 5 + New Dawn expansion

The scary thing is that I have 8 of these in my own top 15...

Valve has physical game copies? I thought all their employees would be mandated to only use Steam.

All Valve's employees use EGS, it's the only place you can get games anymore.

Wait, a "high speed" chase from Bellevue to Seattle in a FEDEX truck, and somehow this clown is still out free? How the fuck does that happen? It's a FEDEX TRUCK. I'd have no problem keeping up with or overtaking that piece of shit in my wife's 1.3l Fiesta.

What, did it turn 5 o clock and the cops just gave up?


Sepharo wrote on Oct 8, 2019, 23:01:
Fuck that article is terribly written and has probably everyone getting the timeline wrong.

This guy broke into Valve's offices 4 times... before he stole the FedEx truck.

Ah, that would explain it.

I was firmly convinced they would announce an "RDR2 is coming to the PC, and we've added RDR, and made it one game! That's right, play from the start of Arthur to the end of John in ONE GAME!"

I mean, that would sell, what, a hojillion copies? Sadly, doesn't seem to be the case, unless they do a sneak announcement.

I bet they're holding it for the next gen re-release.

Hahahaha... ha... wait... THOSE BASTARDS!
