I find your lack of faith disturbing.

At least there is no snow planet.

I wasn't disappointed. Quite the contrary!

This screams of desperation. I think VR is reaching the point of unsustainability if a "killer app" doesn't appear soon.

I find their attempt at humor, headache inducing. They're not comedians; they're game developers. Drop the effort and just talk about their game.

No, what I'm asking for is that "Video Preset: High" is actually high. Just having High and Low, combined their with vague info is silly, especially with their checkered past in PC ports.

You're asking about the particulars that mean "High." You're never going to get that granular with System Requirements. Requirements is usually basic, at-a-glance information. You will need to wait until release to find out the details. Make sense?

CJ - You are one sufferable schmuck. One does not merely assume 1080p is peasantry garbage. Its resolution works great on more than just Assassin's Creed titles. The very words you express are a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand words could you communicate anything positive. It is folly to try!

He's right though. I want to see how it runs at higher resolutions, not console specs. At least publish a real High settings. 1080p is not High specs. The blog says its just dynamic resolution, code to me to mean a shitty console port. They are way too vague, "the possibility of running at 4k at 30fps or higher". Ok? What specs? What about 1440p?

I guess as a PC gamer, who's okay with 1080p, perhaps it is correct to say "a member of the master race who likes to mingle with the common rabble."

Joking aside the types of machine you describe get classified as "enthusiast," meaning a small portion of PC gamers have computers with those specs. If Ubisoft showed enthusiast specs as recommended they would likely discourage people with lesser specs not to buy for fear they would not get the best experience possible. I think what you're asking for is "Recommended Ultra." Contact Ubisoft and ask them what are the specs for that setting.

I always thought PunkBuster was fairly good. Never understood why it didn't become more popular with game developers.

Many gamers loathe PunkBuster to the point where publishers have to hide its use. Its parasitic nature has prompted the creation of removal tools since, as far as I know, uninstalling doesn't thoroughly remove it. Publishers are not going to riddle their multi-million investment with a DRM that has the potential to anger their customers.

But is VAC as effective?

Probably, but PB has a good track history.

27. Discovery Oct 6, 2017, 01:31 Kxmode
 
I finally had a chance to watch the first three episodes back-to-back. I still don't like the redesigned Klingons, but I have my suspicions for where the show could be taking them and if it does then the redesign is brilliant. As far as the story goes, okay I am sold. Discovery has a fascinating premise. I like the "Section 31" direction the series is moving toward. The clandestine group has always fascinated me, and the few episodes they appeared in DS9 are among my favorite.

Jason Isaacs is excellent as Captain Gabriel Lorca and a welcomed replacement for Michelle Yeoh's Captain Phillipa Georgiou. Michelle's acting in the first two episodes was okay but never would have held my attention for a full series duration. Sonequa Martin as the lead is shockingly good. I think these three episodes are all around better than the first three episodes of most of the other Star Trek series if comparing first three episodes to first three episodes. This show has to hook faster with fewer episodes than the other series did. For me, at least, it has done its job well. So I give it a solid 8.5/10. As a bonus, the rampant lens flares are significantly reduced or outright gone from episode three. A change I readily welcome.

I have yet to watch The Orville, so my judgment is reserved.

Yeah, read that the other day. At the start of the year I made a resolution to get more sleep, but still averaging only 6 hours a night.

The expression "I'll sleep when I'm dead" takes on a whole new meaning.

Finished GW2 Path of Fire. Besides this one boss encounter mid-way through, I thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through. The story is excellent. There is so much lore in the story plus the maps. When I saw Vabbi, I nearly cried. It is so beautiful. I also got choked up seeing Augury Rock and the surrounding area. I put over 800 hours in Guild Wars 1 and its expansions, so it was a huge nostalgia trip down memory lane. Finally seeing Kralkatorrik or at least his head was a scene to behold!

The gameplay is solid and fun. The mounts are the star of the show. I did not realize until after I finished POF that there's a hidden fifth mount: the Griffon! It is about as close to a flying mount as you will get in GW2. The Griffon swiftly glides across the air. Spacebar makes it flap its wings thereby allowing you to stay aloft for much longer. It is still a glider, so eventually, I reached the ground.

All in all, I think the creativity and focus on this expansion is some of the best work I have seen Anet put out. The entire Season 3 plus POF was rad!

P.S. In case you are wondering, you will be able to solo ALL the story campaigns including the final confrontation with Balthazar.
