You know you can track DDOS attacks live right? They were definitely getting hit hard on the first day, and somewhat on the second. Specifically US servers, EU servers weren't that bad, which is what I've been playing on and yesterday the queue was lower, I never timed out of the log-in process, or disconnected.

That said, the account merging process looked pretty borked, so I'm not sure that was related to the DDOS attacks.

Not sure why anyone would want Overwatch classic. Shields everywhere, rock-paper-scissors balancing that lead to horrible metas, no content for 3 years.

That's great nVidia, if only turning on Ray Tracing didn't crash the game for me on my 2070 Super... even after the patch that supposedly fixed it.

As to the next gen of hardware, the 4000 series I understand is powerful, but it comes with a big spike in power consumption and heat. I've heard it idles at 70c, in a cold environment. That's 290 levels of heat. Not that I plan on upgrading any time soon, but when I do it won't be a 4000 series.

CA released their mod tools for Total War: Warhammer 3 today too with a new patch. It's a good day to be a modder.

But yea, seriously.. some people way better at this than me have made phenomenal mods for 2077 (and Warhammer 3). With the proper tools who knows what we'll get. I'd like to see a group come together and make some new Gigs.

Side question though, would you start your first game on a new build to see all the technology in action with something like Cyberpunk or I really want to try Far Cry 6 as well?

Cyberpunk, for sure. FC6 isn't bad, but it looks dated by comparison because they didn't go all in on ray tracing, only slapped in a limited implementation that is used in addition to 90% old-style faked shadows and reflections. If you want other graphics showcase games, try Metro: Exodus and Control.

Yea definitely Cyberpunk, it's the highest fidelity game to date, and looks phenomenal with Ray Tracing on.

For those wondering about police AI and traffic, there were major fixes to both in Patch... 1.3 I believe? You'd have to check the notes. It's still not 'GTA' levels (especially for cops) but it wasn't really ever meant to be.

Yea if you haven't played the game yet, now is the time really. The game is rock solid, this patch introduces a lot of QoL stuff and fixed some of the smaller, persistent bugs.

I didn't expect Life Path to play a big role in the story, because I used to play Cyberpunk2020 and it was usually mostly forgotten about after a while lol. Basically like Backgrounds in D&D. There were a few little moments where they are reflected on, but it would be nice to see them play a bit bigger a role in the DLC.

The remasters for Bioshock 1 & 2 are completely broken, neigh unplayable. Maybe you're 'quality of life' change would be to fix your piece of shit broken re-releases. If I hadn't have picked them both up on sale for like $2 each, I'd have been livid.

According to MrLamaSC (a popular youtuber in the genre), it doesn't have any predatory micro-transactions, but the usual stuff. Cosmetics, increased bag & stash tabs, pets... similar to Path of Exile. Everything unlocked is account wide and all progression & content is unlocked through play.

This is of course really nice to hear, I'm a fan of the series (though the 3rd game stumbled hard), so I hope this is solid, fun and not too overly grindy. I look forward to trying it, though I'm not sure it'll replace Diablo II Resurrected for me.

Agree Vemo, I've been playing a shit ton of Immortal Empires with a friend of mine and while it does have a few bugs and needs a bit of polish in a few areas (it's a beta), it has put the fun back into Warhammer for me. I did not enjoy WH3's campaign, though mods helped a lot. Immortal Empires & Daemon's of Chaos DLC really turned the game around for me. Currently tearing through the badlands with Kholek Suneater, loving the new chaos mechanics, and having a blast. I've played little else since it came out nearly a week ago.

Also agree with bjack though, the cost of entry to play Immortal Empires and also the difficulty of entry is absolutely worth it, but I think it holds back a lot of potential buyers. Now that IM is out I think it's time to start bundling the individual games and their DLC. Because people see a wall of DLC that even with a sale is a $150 entry price and turn away.

I'm ok with smart loot so long as there's still a chance to get quality loot that is off-class. IDk about anyone else but I always have a bunch of characters going, so finding gear in D2R that would be awesome for a different class, gets me excited to level that class. Something like a 90-10 split would be fine with me.

As to trading, I think just about everything at the later end of the game should be tradable once. Completely open trading rather gets ruined by bots inflating the market, as in D2R.

Well Season 3 of the Orville was a knockout success in my book. 100% on Rotten Tomatoes is a high bar, let's hope we see a Season 4 as this show has really come into its own.

That sucks, but this fall is packed with big game releases, and I definitely prefer the game be quality.

Firaxis is the premier turn-based tactical strategy game studio in the world, if they think a delay is necessary, I'll happily wait.

I generally trust ACG (not AGC blue :p) and he says it's fun and funny. I'll wait for his full review of course, but goods news. That said, this fall is so damn chock full of games, I might put this on the wishlist and get it during the 'dry season' in the middle of winter or next june.

Let's remember this is a reboot of saint's row, and there's been next to no gameplay (a 15m pre-recorded series of clips barely counts). The developers actively said they were trying to 'get away from the goofiness and comedy' of the original series. Not that this will be as serious as the GTA series takes itself, but if like me you were a fan of said goofiness, this might be a skip.

So wait for reviews, cause this one could be a real stinker.
