Loyalty does naturally occur if you have good experience with one product and a poorer experience with the other. Yes, it may be a lottery but people don’t work by numbers (not even the president.. *cough*)

I do remember AMD/ATI for their poorer drivers, particularly when waking from sleep mode, it was often a hit or miss for me. However, years and years have rolled by and I would look again at AMD but I’m sort of locked in by the Gsync monitor... and the 1080 has served me very very well.

Did they remaster ME3's ending?

If they were clever they’d remake it with a hint to where the next game in the series will lead (obviously avoid andromeda, that game isn’t worthy at all) as a surprise but rarely you get that joined up thinking.

From the statement they already said they’re not going to remake or imagine, which is a shame as some areas could do with a bit of polish over just the gfx.

The first planet is entertaining but beyond that it gets mundane - They just should've made it shorter and focused more on making their content better. Just seemed so grindy afterwards and the ship/shipmates development again felt lackluster.

I was hoping more of a game like Mass Effect and they had the right stuff, just wayyy overstretched themselves.

I'm thinking I'm going to be hitting game breaking bugs in coop, I don't know if they exist in single player.

In general there are a number of smaller bugs, but it seems after I leave an area and return or wait a long time, sequences are resetting as if I didn't run them before. I could give several examples and I notice now where I had main missions they are now gone.

They certainly do as I ran into a game breaking bug in the first 15 minutes of play. I turned it off and will wait till it has a few patches. Definitely disappointing first impression, but I'll hold off a review until later.

It's definitely bland (I own it) - so I'd stay away.

Definitely doesn't have that polish like X-com 2...

It is funny when Blizzard did a great job of a story in Warcraft 3 then totally relied on the sole characters for 18 years.

I doubt it's the lack of creativity, it's the lack of corporate balls to try something different.

All we get is reforged, Wow Classic and a terrible movie.

I've been using the services since the days of Stomped.com was around. Bluesnews has always been top quality for me! I'll honestly say I do use Ad Blockers (Pi Hole) so having a patreon account would be great for me to contribute. Again like those below, I don't care for gimmiks of tiers and rewards but perhaps if you had a merch store, I'd be interested in a purchase or two

The fact is that anything can be done for a price - your old car run indefinitely if you’re willing to pay for it...

Unless of extremely good reasons, I’d be embarrassed to work in an IT environment that still runs 7. What you do at home of course, is entirely up to the individual.

I don't get all the silly hate about which store you buy the game from, especially when developers get more from it.

I have a lot of stores, EA's origin, Uplay, Blizz launcher, Epic and Steam and I don't mind. Yes it'd be great for a unified launcher, but guess what, I have desktop shortcuts!

Platform exclusives, now I can see that being annoying as you need to buy different hardware to play the game but simply installing another launcher for free to buy/play on the same hardware is hardly worthy of the whinging I see here.

PC gamers are supposed to be gritter than console players as we've gone through the challenges of setting up a gaming system. Perhaps we've had it too easy and a return to the dos days would make people appreciate what they have.

Back on topic, I'm glad it's sold well.

Great news - Played 3, was okay but budget and story was lacking.

Hopefully a better adventure for cake-walker this time around.

Oh, I'm sure it is after that hand out of EGS money they are getting. Even though it hasn't been announced, I'm calling it now.

If this helps make the game better, then so be it. I don’t care which store launches the game.

The voice acting is simply awful. It’s like they were afraid to be loud because it’d wake their dog.

Could’ve been a goofy fun title with decent voice overs... But more cringe cringe.

(Understand it’s a jap title but that’s a sure way to kill sales internationally)

Totally agree. I saw the trailer and even after reading the article it doesn't sound bad. People love to whine these days though.

I'm staying away from this due to the real-time combat. Love the remake but also spirit of the old game which no doubt be a dummy button masher. Ether go fully FPS and make the combat fun or stick to the turn based system.

Nvidia is moving away from rasterisation to ray/path tracing as as a natural move away from the old tricks used to present a 3d gaming image which has had deminishing returns in graphical quality for the last 8 years.

Expect this to be the start of a crossing over and further h/w, software and games move to this new method. New consoles will utilise hybrid ray/path tracing - See Sony's next gen...

Heh, in 20 years time, you'll probably have to buy an old 2080 to play 'those old games' that used the current method

Hopefully Bluesnews will still be around then to say I told you so

I assume this is because of the new EU directive on data (GDPR) as it becomes enforceable in May.

Many companies are beefing up their account options to allow better visibility of what data they collect and give users control over it.

Few excerpts from my survey:
- Integrate Windws Store with Steam as there is very little reason to use it due to lack of current or back titles.
- Make the desktop more useful for gamers (and I don't mean the Xbox homepage as that doesn't work for 2k+ displays)
- Redo Windows Experience to provide a benchmark on a PC and inturn give all games a score based on on CPU, GFX, etc and thus can suggest improvements to make it run better on your PC
