21:9 is dumb because it's too fucking short.

But... but... it's just as tall as a 16:9 monitor? (relatively)

Many people who played this game probably used the epic runes such as "immune to poison" that came pre-placed in your inventory with one of the DLC packs. This basically made a large chunk of the game completely trivial and is at least one reason why you felt that all of the encounters felt the same.

Ahhhh. I was wondering why I had a ton of Epic runes right off the bat...

I never picked up SoM, figured I'd get it at low price one day. I might be wrong but it didn't seem to have any story and was mostly a beat'um up. Sort of like how so many games add challenge levels now Dishonored, Witcher and such. I really hate constantly respawning mobs, it seems the lowest form of development.

Actually, the story is pretty cool so far. Yeah, it's standard "revenge" fare, but the addition of Celebrimbor makes it pretty cool. The cutscenes haven't bored me yet, the way the Crew's cutscenes do. (You want to talk about a god-awful story, look no further than the Crew.)
Cool, I'll give it a try, thanks...Wait what's Crew, the car mmog, The Crew?

Yeah, that The Crew.

The settlement with Warner Bros. does not impose any fines or payments but simply orders the studio to [provide] each Influencer with a statement of his or her responsibility" to disclose endorsements clearly and conspicuously in the future.

Yeah, that'll teach 'em. We can be sure they'll NEEEEEEEEEEEEEVER do it again now.

Warner paid PewDiePie and other YouTubers to praise Shadow of Mordor.

This thing that was so stupid about this (and Warner not allowing reviews unless they could approve them beforehand) was they had a fantastic game on their hands. There was no need for any of this bullshit, except someone in the company apparently didn't have any faith in the product.



Exactly. Why get roasted on a game that's just genuinely good? I'm playing it right now and having a great time. The map could be larger (it feels more like a large yard than Mordor), and I wish the orcs didn't take 17 hits each to kill, but other than that it's fantastic. Great atmosphere, cool missions, the Nemesis system is awesome (I have an orc captain who is totally gay for me. Keeps calling me "my sweet" as he keeps coming back from the dead.)

I can see doing this on a fairly crappy game, but why on something so good?

That 7/11 site gave me cancer

Enjoy the 'snapchat' generation.

People say that as if we're not the generation that gave us Angelfire/Geocities sites, The Hampster Dance, Hello My Future Girlfriend, and Tom Green movies.

ALL OF WHICH WERE AWESOME!!!

Admit it, Beamer, you just secretly yearn to be a Millenial.

I'm not sure I understand even the core premise here.

To paraphrase a famous Vorlon ambassador "The river's course is set. It is too late for the pebbles to vote."

12 professional reviewers would literally be a drop in the Amazon river, so I'm not sure what kind of effect he thinks it would have. And in the end, what would Valve/Steam get out of their 1.2 million dollar extra payroll? What benefit is it to them.

If people would actually READ the reviews, rather than just go by the binary choice up thumbs up or thumbs down, this wouldn't be an issue. The minority troll or shill or competitor bad reviews are a minority and drowned in the much larger group of useful reviews.

But of course, people don't really even read reviews, they just see the "87% says this sucks" number and go from there. Which the paid professional reviewers wouldn't do jack shit to counter.

So, in summary, people are fucking stupid.

Think the smallest HDD size they still manufacture is either 150GB or 250GB both in single platter configurations. Which of course is funny, because I sadly remember when I got my first 250MB HDD(first new desktop our family got had a quantum 40MB HDD in it though) and thought I'd never fill it, then 1TB a few years later.

Hehe. My very first PC (that I bought together with my dad) had a 53MB HD in it. When it got full (Wing Commander plus speech pack was like 30MB!!!) we took it back to the store, and they let us upgrade to a 127MB HD. When we came home with it, we both agreed we "would never fill that."

127MB.

Given MS's behavior the last few years post Bill, I am pretty cynical as to what ends they will put this input.

A month from now they will release a statement that says "After going through hundreds of thousands of replies, one thing became overwhelmingly clear: Xbox One is the most favored gaming system in the world, and everything PC gamers want is already included in our magnificent console!"

And that will literally be it.

Also liked the Win 10 limits frames and doesn't allow g-synch and free-synch, telling me bad things I didn't know. Is that true?

Yes. True for UWP (Windows store exclusive) apps. You can not mod UWP games, no multi GPU, no G-Sync/FreeSync, no MSI Afterburner, no Fraps, no GeForce Experience (no ShadowPlay), i.e. no support for any overlay 3rd party app at all.

UWP apps = GFWL 2.0 ... only even shittier than ever!

Is all their announced Win 10 games coming out under UWP?

All MS's games, yes.

"Windows 10 is the best OS for gaming, but we don't actually know what makes an OS great for gaming!"

MS's marketing department at its finest. Well, no, its second finest.

Avast to Buy AVG for $1.3 Billion to Add Security Software.

Crap + Crap = Double Crap.

Eh, Avast is pretty decent. I mean, let's face it, it's FREE software. I just always get so annoyed with its constant nagging to have me buy their stuff. I get it, they need to make money, but...

AVG is terrible. Just horrible bloatware.

All in all, this headline makes me wonder two things:

1) Why would Avast buy AVG, since they're significantly better than AVG? Maybe they need a good bloatware programmer?
2) How on earth does Avast have 1.3 billion dollars lying around???
