Shitty game anyway. You're not missing anything. Honestly, it's like whoever made this has never even seen another MMO much less played one. Really just an awful game.
Another in a long line of "Hot Takes from Cutter".

As for anyone on the fence about the game, understand that it's an action RPG MMO. Launch weeks are going to suck. There are some serious issues with how AGS is handling populations, naming, and server coverage, but I doubt that'll last too long without change.

The game, itself, isn't bad for those that are more into community-driven aspects and less standard MMO-faire. I generally enjoy crafting/gathering more than raiding/dungeoning, so the game greatly appeals to me in that aspect.

Yep if it checks your boxes then you will like it. Cutter plays Conan and acts like that's the be all or something. I like NW better than Conan, don't hate either.

"DLSS is designed to improve performance with only a minimal loss in image quality, while the new DLAA algorithm does the opposite, significantly improving image quality at a slight performance hit. Compared to TAA and DLSS, DLAA is clearly producing the best image quality, especially at lower resolutions."

Using the stills they have and with zooming, I'm not seeing what they are saying here. Not only is it clearly doing better, to me it doesn't seem quite as good. IMO however most all the settings look pretty good when not zooming in and while playing it would be even less noticeable.

I think I'm going to go to my grave with this. This is a man that pitted college women against one another in college online. Who's Hotter. He doesn't care for people in fact he's the opposite of that, I don't think he wants mankind to make it and if he does he has a strange way of showing it. It seems he's trying to pit people against one another.

Yeah it's not a productive thing to do.
I could be investing paper and making more money, but what does that change for a person who says I shouldn't be playing games?
My bills are paid, I'm saving to spec, so what does it matter to them?
Also people like this typically like freedom, so here they are telling people what they should or shouldn't do. Always a paradox.

Bottom line, you take care of yourself, find your happy place and hope other can as well. Like what are you going to do here. Try shaming people into doing something differently?

Truthfully, I don't recall ever hearing of Direct Storage until today. After taking a couple of minutes to read what the heck it is, my response is: Well, if it works as well as claimed it sounds awesome, but given it is being proposed and developed by Microsoft, I think I'll withhold any praise until independent reviews of the finished application are available.

The chance of it being more successful is their competitor already has it, so there is that kind of motivation. But like anything we'll know in time.

Ive had the money to upgrade to a 3080 since it was launched, (900ish), but well, its not like you can find them, and when you do, they are a LOT more than just 900.
There are ways to get them. Like getting in line at evga (It will take a while though). Or Best Buy has had two recent things in last few months where they ship a chunk to every store and sell as MSRP on a certain day they announce. You do have to camp out overnight to get those, but if you want it enough...
There's also a twitch channel that runs some stuff to check stock on pretty much all online retailers, so you can try jumping on that.

CP2077 is a great game. Unfortunately it was released unfinished. If it was released to early access first, all of these arguments about how "shitty" and "broken" it was would be moot.
They would have never done that because they were trying to avoid spoilers. Probably they should have though. Or had some rounds of closed beta testing with outside people.

Best Buy to a small % of stores and now it seems you need to be in like around 12 hours early, we'll have to see how long it is next time.

Pre-ordering games just incentivizes companies to release shitty products.

Then people are outraged when the game is shitty.

Then they line up to pre-order the next shitty game.

In fairness CDPR had a pretty good reputation on the whole. Give the scope of their games one could rightfully assume there were going to be a good deal of bugs and issues at launch. Not all the time in the world in QA would ever have them perfect to go out of the gate. They dropped the ball big time with this one however.

I agree, I still waited. Ended up playing sons copy.

This will test some theories of mine.

One is a game really needs mod tools from the start of like within the first week and the tools should have been in mods hands before release. The theory is, while this is a good move is it too late to matter?

That said if they are use for future products and adhere to the above, this will be good news.

Bethesda gets at least one thing right and that is mod support from the start, it matters imo.

Also this could look like "they can fix what we can't", you know what we say about Bethesda.

We'll see...

I have a few friends anxious to play, but I am seriously concerned about the longevity of the combat depth.. I played the beta, and the trees/combat were way too simplistic long term. Two weapons equipped. Two combos (if you can call it that) for most weapons - basically 3 lights or 3 heavies, and also equip 3 (IIRC) abilities from their trees. But it was super repetitive, and the trees aren't very big.

What's funny for me, even games with more, the combat loops become pretty darn repetitive to. It seems most will find their happy spot loop and for most battles stick with that plan. Maybe the Atari 2600 controller had it right all along.

How can you make a contract and then not be able to know easily how many units sold?

That said, this game still needs a lot of patches, they are really struggling with making changes. Right up there with Dark Alliance and CP2077.

New World is doing the same and possibly to another level.

Really this is the world we should have always been in, but game companies just want money and they don't care about the culture they bring up. Amazon I picture a few things, they have the money to do what they want, but also could be looking at the liability and image since gaming is a bucket drop to them. I can't imagine how my Fortune 100 would ever put up with such vile.

Don't need it...;) This program is all you need--been using it for years:

https://www.winuae.net/

This software allows you to emulate the A500 (several differing models of it), the A1000, A1200, the A2000, A2500, A3000, and the A4000--does a bang-up job, right on your PC.

A lot of these games can be played right through a browser without any software installing as well.

I did the Atari pc chain back then from 800's up through the ST line, it was basically the foundation that set off a 30 year career so far. 800's were about $1000 when released, it was them or Apple 2's. Apples were more expensive. IMO all these pc's during the 80's were pretty close to one another power wise.
