News Comments > PC FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE Next Month

This one always ranked very low on my FF list, way too much bullshit MMO-style grinding for shit with a 0.082% drop rate in it to make it really fun, but the remasters have a X2 and X4 speed option, making the prospect of grinding at least slightly less odious.

The story is also pretty meh, and it has by far the worst main FF character of all time. (Apparently because some dipshit suits insisted that having four main characters wasn't going to "sell well", so they had to cram Vaan and whatsherface in in a matter of six weeks or so.)

But even so, sure, I'll pick this up for a tenner or so.

and Eververse was never intended to be a substitute for end game content and rewards

*cough*bullshit*cough*

The only thing out of all of this that you never intended was for players to get fed up with your endless greed.

My wife would probably pay 16K for a laundry folding and sorting robot...

You don't do laundry? Shit I've been doing mine since I was 12 years old.

I do the outside chores, she does the inside ones with some help here and there. We both absolutely hate laundry though. (The folding. The actual doing laundry isn't that big a deal to me.)

Good news, though! They've figured out, after five years, that their current way of doing things (Everything in the system is loaded into every client's memory at full detail, no matter the location or whether it's even visible etc) is completely retarded. So all they need to do now is to completely rewrite that part of it. They estimate it'll be done by Q3 2018; so, in reality, by 2020 that part of it should be better!

Nobody but the 1% (who don't eat at your poisoned shithole to begin with) having the money to eat at your chain 'just makes sense.'

You guys forgetting the post a month or so ago about how EA was going to hook up 2 players.. 1 spent money on big bad items, with a player that didn't so the other player would spend money after seeing their partner in god mode?

I think that was Activision.

AMD Shows Off 2018 Ryzen Processor Roadmap and Slashes Prices.

Even with these slashed prices, it would appear the best bang for the buck is the Core i5 8400.

Why would you ever pay for an 8600K?

Considering how Intel treats their customers, and put birdshit TIM in their processor, why would you get an Intel over a Ryzen?

Nice but not quite correct Wink .

Meltdown does not allow a "h@xx0r" to read protected areas in the processor but in (kernel) memory instead. That's quite a difference.

My bad, I did it off the top of my head.

I'm sure somehow they have something to do with players paying more money, somewhere.
