DOS2, SoW, Elex, Destiny 2 in two days...

I'm sated for now. I will buy this game soon, though.

Can any "fan" of the first tell me how they experience this sequel?

MoreLuckThanSkill did a pretty good job describing the game.

I'll add my 2 cents, I just beat the Evil Within 2 on nightmare difficulty, it took me around 21 hrs. Overall I really enjoyed it, the first third is good, the middle third loses some momentum as the environment doesn't change much and your mostly doing the same things as the first third, but the final third is super strong. It has one of the best endings for a video game that I played recently.

Overall I give it an 8/10, carried by the strong third act and ending. A definite must buy for survival horror fans.

The game does a good job of making the NPC's memorable, they actually inject emotion and life into the game and are not just mobs standing around with an exclamation point over their heads handing out fetch quests. You really only see that stuff over the final third of the game though.

Also, the game does a good job of introducing a lot of different enemy types and bosses to keeps thing feeling fresh. That was a problem I felt Resident Evil 7 suffered from, it had good bosses but the mold monsters were too similar for my tastes.

With how poorly optimized the AC series has been on PC I was expecting higher recommended specs.

Anyone have any opinions on what the golden spot is for Ryzen? 1700s? 1700Xs?

There is no difference between the 1700 and 1700X, the X comes factory overclocked and has no cooler. The 1700 is at stock speeds but includes a decent cooler so you can oc yourself.

The general consensus is the 1600 for budget or gaming only buyers who don't mind overclocking themselves. The 1700 for those who have a mix of production and gaming needs.

If your only into gaming or need the best gaming performance then 8700k is the best option. It'll perform better than the 7700K in games and will be somewhere around the 1700 for productivity.

If your a high res gamer, 4k gaming than Ryzen for gaming is also a decent option, because you'll be gpu bound not cpu bound at those resolutions. The main benefit of going Ryzen is for productivity or budget. If you have the money 8700k is the way to go.

Remember that those with older cpu's it's not just about average or maximum fps. The 8700k will also improve your 1%, .1% and frametimes which are often more important than your average fps. It's also useful for those that want 144fps for their monitors as older cpu's struggle to reach high frame rates.

I'm using a 3570k @ 4.2 and I'm getting the 8700k the second they are released. You can get still get by with old cpu's but make no mistake that there will be a noticeable improvement, especially with newer games taking advantage of more cores and threads. Not to mention the jump from 8gb 1600 ddr3 to 16gb 3200 ddr4.

This will be my first Ass Creed I buy at launch. I've played a bit of 2 and Black Flag at sale prices and could never get into them. However, with the revamped combat and a more open world emphasis it'll be the perfect game to test out my newly upgraded rig, 1080 Ti / Coffee Lake 8700k

This is the price the rift should have launched at. I wonder if they are prepping a rift 2 for release later in the year and closing out some stock with this pricing

According to Oculus they won't have a revision until 2019,

This seems more like Oculus trying to gain marketshare on Vive + other competing headsets are entering the market.

Ordered the bundle last night, couldn't resist at that price. My 970 will have to do until I can upgrade my graphics card.

Hollow Knight has been a lot of fun. It feels like a really good metroidvania with some light elements of Dark Souls thrown in.

This will be a day one buy for me, but I love the survival horror genre so it's right up my alley.

That video shows new gameplay but at low resolution.

I'm not interested in a FC3 remaster, the series needs to be revamped to stay relevant imo. I hope the extra delay in FC5 means they're modernizing the formula and adding depth to the gameplay. The progression system in FC3 was a bit shallow for my tastes.

I beat RE 7 a couple days ago having never played a RE game. It took around 10 hrs to complete the game while getting most of the collectables. I'd give it a 8.5 / 10 for survival horror fans. The first 2/3 of the game is really well done, the last third is kind of a generic shooter.

It's short enough that I'm considering another playthrough on Madhouse difficulty. There are enough shortcuts and secrets in the game that a 2nd playthrough is warranted, there's even a major choice midway through the game that changes the ending.

I played the demo and enjoyed myself. It's almost like an adventure/puzzle game with horror elements. The texture setting was grayed out at medium so the game looks a little muddy, I would've liked to see how good the high and ultra textures looked.

According to previews this is a mix of PT and Resident Evil 1 which makes it a possible day 1 buy from me.

There's so few current co-op shooters that I'm always willing to give a new one a fair shot. The next one I'm interested in is Mass Effect Andromeda MP which won't be out for another several months.

I wish them all the luck.

Have you tried Angels Fall First or Renegade X?

Those look interesting but I was thinking about AAA PvE co-op shooters like Borderlands, L4Dead or a horde mode with a good level up system like ME MP.

The graphics look nice with the exception of the facial animations. It'll be a day 1 buy for me, not only for the extensive single player but also for the horde co-op mp. The ME 3 mp was a lot of fun and they said it's returning for Andromeda.

Blizz has already put up job postings for a new Diablo,

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/07/blizzard-job-posting-outs-plans-for-new-diablo-game/

A brand-new "unannounced" entry in the Diablo world was, er, announced on Friday by way of an official job posting for—get this—the next entry's director. It's the game-news equivalent of New Line Cinema saying a new Lord of the Rings film is coming but, whoops, Peter Jackson's not involved, and they could really use a new person to get this thing up and running.

The post seeks someone to "lead the Diablo series into the future." While such a public push for a series director might read like an attempt to bring more diversity into the hiring pool, we'd frankly be shocked to see anybody other than the industry's old-guard vets fulfilling application requirements such as five years of game-directing experience and shipping "multiple AAA products as a game director or creative director." The job posting mentions nothing about virtual reality or other experimental hardware.

Seems like the fraudulent keys were sold on the marketplace, which is like ebay. If you buy direct from G2A themselves I think you'll be fine, although there is always a risk with using sites like this.
