It looks significantly more fun to me than PUBG does, so to me it makes sense that it gets more people to play it.

That said, if it's F2P (is it? I really can't figure it out.), having to pay for the bandwidth of 3.5 million people playing simultaneously must be a pretty shocking bill every month...

How about going back to the Dark Crusade game mechanics and expand them. Instead of just one world, we go from world to world.

I hated what they did with DoW 2 and 3. I wonder how well DoW 1 and DoW:DC sold in comparison to 2 and 3.

This. Dark Crusade was AMAZING. I must have played that thirty times from start to finish. I didn't play Soulstorm very much because at the time it ran like absolute dogshit on my PC. Levels took like 3 minutes to load. But I loved that they expanded it with more races and more maps etc.

I think Soulstorm had like a million races in it. So then I'm supposed to get excited about 3 races in DoW3, and a sp campaign that FORCES me to keep switching between the 3, instead of being able to play through the whole campaign with my chosen race?

No. Fuck playing as the fucking Eldar.

I didn't buy it because you had a grand total of 3 races, one of which was the shitty Eldar, and a very mediocre single player campaign.

Think about that next time you want to make a Dawn of War game.

So like giving all environment textures a gray shade and all player textures a red color?

Yeah, but let's be realistic here, someone could program a custom driver for your graphics card to do that too. So what's PUBG gonna do next, ban all graphics drivers?

Go states, go. The more of you tell Ajit Pai to go fuck himself, the quicker we can get rid of this "Just let the telcos rape you! It won't hurt so bad if you just get it over with quick!" bullshit.

That's about a fifth of what they charge every cable operator per subscriber for ESPN. Interesting.

Iger says Disney will not make ESPN Plus available unless you’re a “traditional or non-traditional” subscriber of standard ESPN

Oh, that's why. Lol Iger. Sure, I guess the problem was that people weren't paying enough for ESPN yet. This will fix all your problems!

There's a lot of moving pieces to keep track of, the mining part of it, the gaming part of it, the second-hand part, the boutique builders...I do understand your train of thought, though, Creston...

=-Rigs-=

Don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm saying I'm happy with the current state of affairs, because it has a chance to do more damage to PC gaming than anything Microsoft has ever done, but from the perspective of AMD/Nvidia, this is fucking gold. They LOVE it. They're selling out even all their garbage cards they just make so they have something to do with all the shitty binned parts.

I'm pretty sure boutique builders buy from Nvidia/AMD partners directly and just pay whatever they've agreed to pay at time of release. They're not susceptible to market prices on newegg/amazon etc going through the roof.

And Reshade can NOT be used to cheat. It can be used to boost brightness, gamma and stuff of course. Like Nvidia drivers, just with more control.

Yeah, I didn't think so either. PUBG devs just grasping at straws it seems.

Sci-fi yes, Mass Effect no. There's just so much better sci-fi out there than ME.

I just meant more the type of game. Exploration, party members, cool space opera story, etc.

I don't mean : GIVE ME MASS EFFECT 4!

Eltariel is a deadly assassin working for the Elven Queen, Galadriel, and has been sent to Mordor for millennia to hunt the Nazgűl.

Deadly assassin who, after having been on the hunt for millennia, still hasn't managed to kill a single one of her targets.

Joking aside, it actually sounds cool to play as a different character. I'm patiently waiting for a all-in-one edition to go on sale for $20.

Here is my question (as i dont use ReShade).

Can you tell it to not load for one game or is it "on" for all games once installed?
Kinda bullshit if you have to completely remove it from your computer because of one game when it is perfectly fine for other games.

Reminds me of older anti cheat that forced you to completely uninstall things like Daemon Tools even if you were using it for other things.

I'm pretty sure ReShade runs on a per-game basis, as you have to specify a config file for each individual game that you want it to run with.

That said, I think banning ReShade seems a bit weird. I guess it somehow allows people to look through walls or something in PUBG?

Lol,

Poor little snowflake, did your precious bitcoin get stolen? It's almost as if, if you invest in something with no fiduciary backups in place, you run the risk of losing it all!

That said, companies are dragging their ass wherever possible on implementing more security measures, so who knows.

Either nVidia and AMD really need to pick up the pace on making dedicated mining cards available or they need to flood the market with video cards in general.

Why? What possible benefit would this have for them?

1) Creating dedicated mining cards means they need to design and create an extra product line / fabrication line for them. And these cards would need to be a better power draw vs mining output ratio, or come at a cheaper price than normal graphics cards, or miners wouldn't buy them.

2) Flooding the market with cards is literally saying to them "You need to flood the supply channel so the price goes down, so you will have to increase your costs solely to depress profits for your retail partners."

All of this means less profit for AMD/Nvidia.

Seriously, why on earth would they ever do this?

It's almost as if something that has no intrinsic value, and only goes up in price because of speculative trading, is by its very definition a bubble!

Love Dying Light, and their ongoing support for it is awesome. (even if all the free content is of little/no use in the actual game itself, or just stupidly hard to get.)

I did get a few mods for a while, but the game is perfectly playable without them. Weapon degradation is only a concern for the first few hours, imo.
