So, UBI says that the DRM is not causing any issues with high CPU usage. I think they are full of shit. There's no way you double down on the DRM with Denuvo and the VMProtect they implemented over top of that DRM and not have some kind of CPU usage hits too.

The weird thing is, I seem to have absolutely no issues with my CPU getting overloaded. Wouldn't it just CRUSH my ass-old 2500K? I mean, my CPU seems pretty busy during the game, but it runs like smooth silk too.

But yeah, them saying "It's not the DRM!" isn't going to be believed by anyone.

Journalism today. That's like 4th grade grammar rules.

The panda eats, shoots, and leaves vs the panda eats shoots and leaves.

The first panda scenario is much more entertaining. Dine and dash murderer panda.

Yeah, the first game was just as brutal if not worse. Setting bandits on fire, watching them torture and murder people, etc. The zombies aren't the biggest threat to mankind in TLOU, it's the few people left alive who have decided "fuck it."

LIKE A BAWS!

He kinda cheats, though. He has an articulating rear axel / end / whatever, that I think he can even control manually? If it had been fixed wheel there's no way he could have crossed that.

But hey, hats off to him for making it look easy. I don't get why he first backed up though, as it didn't look as if he really made any positional adjustments.

quote="Creston"Oct 30, 2017, 16:57"15604]Anyone have a recommendation for a good/great set of speaker? My Klipsch are starting to give out after 12 years, and I'm looking for a new set.

They're 5.1, but I'm not sure I really care enough about that to go back to it, I'd probably be just as fine with some excellent 2.1s.

Anyone have any suggestions?
They still make the 2.1 Klipsch
This hardware thread might have some ideas

Thanks for the link. It seems everyone loved their Klipsch, but also everyone's subwoofer died (as is mine.) Sigh

You could walk a marathon in ten hours without too much difficulty I think, if you're at least used to walking.

But yeah, 31 marathons in 31 days is incredible. I just hope he didn't do (more) lasting damage to himself.

I guess the time factor will be determined by how "well" the lootboxes scam in game will earn?

True. If not enough people gamble, they would have to increase the player base.

Come on, EA, make it ten bucks! You know you want to!

Hmm, if that were the case, you wouldn't expect PUBG to be on top at all, given that it's been for sale for months.

That's the whole franchise, including consoles.

What's wrong, fellas? Pressure from AMD getting to you? For ten+ years you didn't really do jack shit, and now it's RELEASE RELEASE RELEASE IMPROVE PROCESS RELEASE RELEASE.

Competition is a good thing. I'm still getting a Ryzen for my next build.

Yeah, once I read 5-7 hours, I was like "Oh." 5-7 hours in dev speak is typically about 4-5 hours in reality, and then likely at least an hour of that is cutscenes.

10 bucks seems about right, but I think it'll take a while before it gets there, since they're doing all the content packs for free, as opposed to SWBF1 where they were paid (and almost pure profit), so they had incentive to lower the price asap to get more potential content pack customers.

In case anyone was wondering... on the day Amazon IPO'd it opened at 18 closed at 23.50 -- assume you got 100 shares at $23 each. If you managed to not sell them somewhere along the way... your $2,300 investment would now be 1,200 shares worth roughly $1.3 million.

Really diggin' ACO. Love just ridin' around looking at stuff. Really scratches my historian buff itch.

I'm actually quite looking forward to that "scholar mode" or whatever it's called they're gonna release next year, where you can just walk around, gawk, and learn historic facts. It should be very interesting.

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS
the end is nigh for this flash in the pan game /s

I wonder if you combined all the Ass Creed versions, if PUBG would still be #1. Probably would.

Ha. AC has sold somewhere around 80 to 100 million copies in total (depending on which reports you happen to read). PUBG needs at LEAST another six months to get there.
