Only played the base game, look forward to doing this whole ordeal a month or so prior to POE2's release.

So is this the POE that'll be any good?

Yes, again!

I really don't know what you want in a CRPG, seems like they all disappointed you.

Well this is a surprise. Not totally sure what shutting down and will commence after the sunset period for free. So the game will be back?

I'm pretty sure it was doing well enough to keep going. Know a few who were still playing and just told one... yep they're shocked by the news.

This is why I stopped playing World of Warships. It just became too much of a chore to track all the various currencies and what they could be used for, and what I needed to unlock,

I have a lot of complaints about the mmo model, but this one takes the cake. It makes it impossible for me to come in later to a game. If I'm going to put that kind of time in, I'll just do it with real stocks and trades and make like real money, or try. Shit gets way too complicated for what it gives back.

"Fisker's solid-state batteries have a long way to go before they make it into a car" - yep figured.

Lots of news over the years on massive battery breakthroughs beyond what is available today... will one ever come through?

The exception being that fishing Dreamcast game, if you had the fishing controller. For some reason that was hysterical to have in a corner at parties.


LOL, yes the expectation would be if you bought an actual fishing game, there you should expect to fish. But you know what? I hate fishing games that have a mandatory FPS shooter part in them.

Is browser performance anything more than a technical dickwagging contest between programmers? I mean my browser hasn't had trouble rendering pages instantly since like... 1995. (Netscape Navigator ftw.)

I can still tell browser performance differences between them and to me it matters based on how much I'm on the net and how much I have open. Edge is the fastest, albeit a limited addon scene and not a lot of settings. Previous Firefox degrades noticeably over time, the Reload addons became a thing for me. Actually right now Firefox Quantum feels quite a bit like Edge.

To other post: Yep the loss of Classic Theme Restorer, Round Tabs and Bookmark Icons without text, mess up my look part of it.

As said NoScript is out at least for now. But ublock and ghostery handle most of the need. There is another script blocker available now as well.

Quantum seems more nimble certainly. We lost a lot of add-ons though, hopefully some make their way back to round it out.

Why are people buying it? Lemmings ruining the gaming industry by throwing money at shit that doesn't exist yet.

It's like every single rule is being broken. For as many people that hate EA there must be 1 or 2 that is ok with them. They justify all this with a release day purchase.

Thanks mobile gamers, for being addicted to shitty time wasting titles and their payment schemes. Now our big PC titles are being pillaged for profit because of your poor consumption practices.

All reports lead to it is only a small % that put money into games this way. So it's thanks small fraction of rich or addicted mobile gamers. But the premise is to somehow salvage good in EA, that's been gone for a long time. Wall Street gaming isn't something we just write as a funny ha ha, it's real.

I'll give it to the people, they have them scrambling. What kills me is how many people still put so much effort into EA games as if they are the only option in gaming or something. But whatevah's.

My point is people who behave like that are "children" because they feel they are entitled to those characters merely because they paid $80 for the Deluxe Edition. To expect pricier editions come with rarer characters would immediately create an unfair advantage for basic preorders versus higher tiered preorders. That's called Pay 2 Win. EA is all kinds of things but I'm pretty sure they would never introduce P2W in preorder tiers. That's not good business.

Is there a price you can out-right buy Darth Vader? Even if it is based on loot boxes? If so, then entitlement or not, it is this person with $80 just didn't have enough. I like indy gaming.

They are going to do what they do.

We all have a choice to make.

Asking them to change isn't happening.

And with that, pretty much thread.

Yeah discord is the answer. They've got the product and the numbers. I moved from Teamspeak a couple years back, right decision by far.

So their positive about a possible. Nice, are they running for office to?

Pretty much these 2.

Also, dev really need to find a better way to move around. Warping around everywhere takes a big bunch of the immersion away.

At this rate, self driving cars will beat VR in becoming more mainstream.

These are things I agree with. When it becomes wireless, that will be a big step forward or at the very least, the unit calibrates and sensors itself, vs setting up a room. Technology is there for that and I believe an offering is coming soon doing that.

The warping part is probably my #1 dislike with VR. Yes it makes one less wozzy in the newbie stages and I'm not against the option. But making it an only option, that will never make it mainstream if that were the status quo.

A "killer" VR app would be something along the lines of the openness of Skyrim or Fallout with the depth content of The Witcher series. Every VR demo I have tried is limited in scope.

What is funny is you just made a game that doesn't even exist in flat screens. You are taking perhaps the best at both those fields and putting them together, when they themselves don't have it. Killer products are racing/fly sims. That is killer. Now are you into that?

I think VR will have problem is in MP FPS/Moba type genres. The action is so hectic that it maxes gamers senses. Where in VR it will never be that kind of action and you can do the former for hours on end. VR has the option of a seated experience, which currently I do prefer, so you could do long sessions, but being so immersed in the pov, you still won't pull off quite the same heroics you can with a flat screen action. The games I've played in VR, generally speaking in those genres, simply haven't been able to go to 11 in that way. It is slower and more realistic offering some gamers will even prefer, but probably not most.

$600 for VR, or $600 for new games.

One will give me thousands of hours of entertainment, the other hopefully has games for it in a few years and a few niche products now.

Tough call.

It seems logical but just a way to make right in your decision.

First you can get in for $400.

Why buy a $400 video card upgrade when I already have an ok one and that can go to $400 more in games?

Problem probably is, I already have more games then time, so I don't even have to put dollars towards games at all. Probably more an addiction than smart thinking.

VR, do I want to experience something different?
Or am I content with the same games in general over and over?
Or do both.
