Average time is 3x longer than customer wants.

To note everyone is a customer and supplier. So when a customer states their problems take 3x longer than they want, they are stating they take 3 x longer fixing problems for their customers. We are talking about ourselves and we're 3x longer disappointed, oh boy.

I followed this project for years. It's a shame nothing came of it. He seems close to alpha: the engine is in good shape, the AI and economy we're coming along. In the end his reach exceeded his grasp. Hopefully a team of talented modders can finish this up. There's still potential here.

I hope a modder doesn't touch it, they don't deserve to work for free.

I hear Xbox is getting k/m support, I wonder how they'll fuck that up, because they will, it's what they do.

The keyboard will cost $200 and have a proprietary cable that only connects to Xbox. Ditto for the mouse at $100.

I knew it, there'd be something.

"it will be possible to prevent the OS from asking you to reboot for Windows updates while you are gaming, proving we are truly living in a magical science fiction future"

LOL

They already have a new look, I guess their million dollar marketing teams blew another one.

The RPG cup overfloweth, Bard's Tale IV, Pathfinder:Kingmaker, DLC for PoEt 2... it's looking good. No crazy bug complaints yet either, although I may wait a few weeks to really get into either BT4 or P:K.

Backed both, chose Gog keys for both.


Have you done Tower of Time? I still got to get over to that one as well, haven't does PoeT2 yet either.

Now its actually improving and you think Trump is trying to kill you...

It's a very complex equation, there is no guarantee at all this improves anything.

Chinese stock market its in the tank since Trump became president and my stocks are up in the skies.

I think the skies are a bit extreme, but it's been a pretty good two years, but definitely a lot bumpier right now than it needs to be.

All these tariffs. Everything getting more expensive. It's fucking GREAT!

Are you guys getting tired of all the winning yet? Because I know I am!

Short term pain for long term gain.


The problem is this won't be a long term strategy, this is one of the few things I see where Trump is coming from, but all those behind him that will follow, don't want this, they want business to find the cheapest labor and will after him. So this has no long term meaning I feel.

There are bugs that may or may not get you, but besides that this is a quality effort in this genre for sure, perhaps the best to date.

Call it STONED TO DEATH and it will be a great success in e.g. Afghanistan!

Call it Stoned and it will be great success everywhere.

Reefer Madness - The Game
(based on the movie - better late than never!)

If Judas Priest would have named Bloodstone to "I'm Stoned" back in what? '82. It would have been their biggest hit ever. I've told them as much, opportunity missed.

To me there is no BS. They have a product, they've priced it, we've benched it and now we can decide. Perhaps if not many buy it they'll drop the price down to where we will. We'll see.

I'd not even say that PC gaming is alive currently even with crowd-funding, the amount of fresh and unique games is at an all time low.

LOL, do you shop only at EA.com? There are more unique games than ever each year. Well perhaps it has tailed off the past 3 or so. Most hate the AAA studio's anymore, but then seem to only consider their products. LOL

FWIW with the couple hours I had into it last night, I enjoyed it. This is a middle grade quality game, never thought it would be anything more, but has some old school takes to is, which was the hook.

As a 1070 owner I will tell you that I will buy a 1080 Ti.
What a joke of a new generation. Laughable performance gain and the price increase is just lunacy.

The price increase is lunacy, I cannot disagree. However, I have a 1080 at present and looking at the 2080Ti on Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 4K, it goes from like 33 FPS to 59 FPS. That's not a joke of a gain. It literally makes for smooth gameplay at 4K, up from somewhat choppy. Overclock the 2080Ti and you probably reach 66 FPS or so. Literally 100% gain.

If all games had that bump, sure.

The 10x0 series was a landmark in performance.

It has been 2 1/2 years for this next gen to release, so we aren't yearly here at all.

This is a standard version upgrade bump. ~20%

It will be interesting what the 2070 looks like performance and price.

I will most likely upgrade to it if reasonable, my old 1070 goes into another system replacing a 760. May look at at 1070ti or 1080 though, depending on cost.

This will all be about price/performance.
