Fun fact, Valve implemented lootboxes in TF2 almost 1 1/2 year before EA introduced their version to the FIFA franchise.

Yet Valve sees almost no derision for doing that, while everyone else using lootboxes get piles of (deserved) hate piled on them.

Because *hats* are nothing like the straight-up casino gambling found in FIFA titles. It's not even remotely close to the same.

jdreyer, you'll be happy to note the 1080 Ti performs very well when compared to the newer generation Geforce 2070 and Radeon RX 5700 XT cards.

Gears 5 - "The GTX 1080 Ti dominated the 2070 Super and 5700 XT, both newer GPUs averaged 76 fps at 1440p while the Pascal GPU pushed on to average 88 fps. The 1080 Ti was also 14% faster than the 2070 Super at 4K and 25% faster than the 5700 XT."

War Thunder - "here the 1080 Ti edged out the 2070 Super by a 13% margin at 1440p, though both delivered similar 1% low performance. The 1080 Ti also blew away the 5700 XT by a 34% margin and we see a similar thing at 4K, despite similar 1% low performance."

World of Tanks - "plays very well on the GTX 1080 Ti, here the Pascal GPU was 15% faster than the 2070 Super and 24% faster than the 5700 XT. That's a solid result for the older 1080 Ti, though frame rates were high with all GPUs at 1440p using maxed out settings. The 4K result was more impressive, 94 fps on average from the 1080 Ti enabled an extremely smooth gaming experience."

The Division 2 - "the 1080 Ti for example was 13% faster than the 5700 XT at 1440p and 15% faster at 4K. The 1080 Ti also edged out the 2070 Super at 1440p, but matched it at the 4K resolution."

Fornite - "In Fortnite we see the 1080 Ti outclassing both the 2070 Super and 5700 XT at both 1440p and 4K. At the 4K resolution it was 14% faster than the 2070 Super, so a pretty handy win here."

PUBG - "PUBG uses the Unreal Engine 4 and so we see the 1080 Ti easily beating the 5700 XT, though this time it wasn't much faster than the 2070 Super."

F1 2019 - "Performance in F1 2019 was virtually identical across these three GPUs with average frame rates ranging from 112 - 114 fps. The results at 4K were also very competitive, the GTX 1080 Ti matched the 5700 XT exactly."

Wolfenstein: Youngblood - "The 1080 Ti was 10% slower than the 2070 Super and when talking over 140 fps on average, that's not a big deal. The 1080 Ti was comparable to the 5700 XT at both 1440p and 4K."

Apex Legends - "The GTX 1080 Ti did beat the 5700 XT by a small margin while it wasn't much slower than the newer RTX 2070 Super. Then at 4K the GeForce GPUs delivered basically identical performance while the 5700 XT fell away by around a 12% margin."

Monster Hunter: World - "Here we see very competitive performance at both tested resolutions, the 1080 Ti was a smidgen faster than the 2070 Super and 5700 XT, but overall the gaming experience was much the same."

...and so forth.

review code is being restricted to American outlets due to security concerns

What the fuck??

It's a cowardly move. 2K wants people outside of U.S. to blindly buy the game instead of letting the power of the Internet inform decisions. It's par for the course for the kind of slim 2K Games represents. They put a straight-up casino in NBA 2K19 garnering them a Mostly Negative on Steam. Of course, they don't want ratings. (In retrospect, maybe that's why they went exclusive on EGS.)

As an aside, I am moderately sure most gamers don't go to media outlets for reviews. They go on Youtube or Twitch or Twitter. You can bet the social media on those outlets won't listen to 2K's "regional embargo." Hell, they might even post their's early out of smite for 2K's chutzpah.

Nothing would make me happier than to see the game financially fail. That would send a loud message that third-party exclusivity on a barely functioning store is not the path forward. Competition against Steam is better served by an equal player who benefits the publishers and consumers.

Going by that metric, CDPR must be in all-out panic mode regarding Cyberjunk 2077 with how much press they keep trying to shovel at us.
Peeps throw common sense and logic out the door and twist themselves up in knots when anything Epic is mentioned. It's really an odd epic phenomenon.

Funny how that works both ways.

Abzu is a great game to throw up on the big screen TV and chill.

Also, my wife enjoyed it.
Cool, glad to know that one of them is decent. I'd never heard either one.
Now i'm off to play my treasures. Grin
You troll us with your EGS fandom like the Mormon and Jehovah Witness people troll my neighborhood. They know they ain't converting anyone, but they still come by with their shit eating grin and annoy us.
One difference is that you're going to his door (thread), he's not coming to yours. Another difference is that it's not some cult, it's just a store.

If you don't want Witnesses coming to your door, tell them to put you on their "Do Not Call" list the next time they stop by. The Witnesses do their volunteer ministry work in assigned territory, so your request will make it into their congregation's territory cards. On the card is a list of DNC addresses. The Witnesses don't want to waste their time on someone who expresses no interest.

As an aside, Jesus and his followers engaged in the house-to-house ministry and public ministry at marketplaces and synagogues. The religious leaders ordered Peter, for example, to stop and they didn't. "We must obey God as ruler rather than men" was their response. The Jews during Jesus day labeled his group of evangelizers as a cult. The ministry is not something Witnesses do because they enjoy annoying people. Quite the contrary, it's done because it is a direct command from Jesus via Matthew 28:19,20. ALL Christians are required to minister by sharing the good things that God's Kingdom is providing now and in the future, and how that person can benefit from it now and in the future.

However, as outlined in the first paragraph, your response is entirely voluntary. If you're adamant not to hear the message, then say to put you on the DNC list and the Witnesses will seek out someone else more receptive.

Do not give this company your money for anything early access. They already screwed up on EverQuest Next via the Landmark crowdsourced content creation tool. They charged $79, $89, and $99, did not deliver EverQuest Next, turned Landmark into a sub-par stand-alone Minecraft clone, and didn't refund people who preordered Landmark explicitly for EQN.

Ugh. Just... unplug the game. People will understand.

If they're still creating content, there's still people wanting it. IOW it's not a dead game according to EA's standards.

How do you even figure that? EA has money, they are like any other rich developer - they pump money into a failed product for a little while hoping it will reverse its downward trend, and then drop it when it doesn't.

No one wants any more Anthem content. The server population is abysmal.

You have no idea how large Triple-A devs work or think. IT's all image to them. Failure doesn't matter, so long as they can make it look like they tried to reverse said failure.

EA is a publicly-traded company with shareholders only interested in profitable growth. That means not seeing them not waste money on unprofitable pursuits. There's a difference between the cost of R&D (like the 5-6 years spent on "developing" Anthem) versus a live game with people willing to make microtransaction purchases.

I get tickled by the amount of spergeout a simple "Snagged" post garner's.
But if you look back when Steam and HL2 came out it was the exact same thing so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. -shrug-

Really? So you don't consider it a "spergeout," the times you went Kool-Aid mode in response to criticizes of EGS for its anti-consumerism, or the times you defended Tim Sweeney's spewed tone-deaf platitudes or that time you called the Darq developer an "asshole" for offering all the money from EGS sales to a charity of the customer's choice? Don't be a judgemental hypocrite.

[history snipped for brevity]

I am referring to Mohammad.

A perceived disrespectful treatment of the name and/or person's likeness generally results in a violent reaction from a fringe element of the religion. The game developers aren't prepared to go that route. However, they were okay with Jesus because it's en vogue.

How long has it been en vogue?

You tell me.

I mean, depictions of Jesus aren't forbidden, in fact, most churches are full of them.

And these products typically come from places where Christians are the majority and not persecuted against, generally the developers were raised in homes at least slightly Christian, which is very different than these same devs, in these same places, making something about Muslims.

You know exactly what I am referring to. If you don't get educated.
