Sodapoppin is streaming Classic WOW with 36K viewers. Others are streaming Classic with 9k, 10k, and so forth. Basically Classic WOW makes up more viewership numbers than BFA. Between Classic and BFA, WOW is the 5th highest watched game on Twitch ATM. So one could conclude a game that is 15-years-old is almost as popular as Fortnite, Counter Strike, GTA5 and League of Legends. Whoever said Classic WOW has no market or no interest is a tool.

In other news, Anthem has less viewers than Microsoft Fight Simulator X and Tetris. Valve's colossal Hearthstone-clone failure Artifact has more viewers than Anthem.

Yeah, it depends on what they really mean by "invisible", as long as that doesn't also mean "unlogged"...

Pretty sure invisible means happens in the background without the user's knowledge. There will be a log of it, but the update itself will be hidden to end user. When users encounter computer problems, they might not think to look at Windows and first think hardware or some recent software they installed. Only after hours of searching online do they come across a post with the same issue and someone mentioning there was a recent "invisible" update. Microsoft needs to go back to way updates were; optional and visible to end user. Letting the user know an update is ready and letting them decide when to apply the update is the best and only option Microsoft should choose.

Usually, problems can be traced back to recent Windows updates. However, when the updates are invisible, and you encounter an issue, it'll be very challenging to pinpoint the cause. Nobody wants to spend hours searching for the reason to a problem only to find out 5 hours later it was a recent invisible Windows update. Making the updates invisible is a total disaster.

"Sea of Solitude centers on the essence of loneliness and tugs on the heartstrings of its players by mirroring their own reality"

Oh stop, EA. The only heartstrings you tug on is the essence of financial loss associated with your slimy microtransactions.

Thanks Gabe for these 7 steaming turds

Having put over 100 hours into Grim Dawn, I know for a fact, is it not a "steaming turd." It's a cross between Diablo 2 and Path of Exile. An enjoyable game to play that looks great on 4K with all the settings maxed out. Combat is challenging. The story is interesting. I like the synergy between the classes, devotion tree, and weapon stats. They all work together and independently to produce exciting gameplay.

Charcoal is much better for taste but propane is more convenient, until you have to refill the can.

Seems to me if someone managed to merge the two they would be crazy rich.

Can the taste of charcoal be emulated by manipulating the propane gas or blending it with other less dangerous gasses (e.g. "flavor" gases)?

Even better, DO FLY them on a cargo plane for an island somewhere (not currently inhabited), and let them be anti-vaccine all day long.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the quality of these freebies is slightly lower than awesome.

May 5th: "EA's freebie Origin offerings started dropping in quality too. Near the end of the promotion they gave away Peggle and Steamworld Dig. When it started they were giving away Mirror's Edge and Medal of Honor Pacific Assault."

The sunrise Ray tracing on the mesa looks cool. However, the purple illumination of the weapon looks overdone. Maybe that's how Avalanche coded it rather than being an issue with the hardware, but it reminded me of the gimmicky fluid PhysX effects from Borderlands 2 (which were also purple)

We agree on the purple. I think that comes from the light-source being so close. The panel's current brilliance wouldn't produce light that vivid (at least I don't think it would). If halved the diffusion would more accurately reflect the amount of light the hand scan emanates. This RTX tech is all bleeding-edge stuff though, so it'll get better as devs grow more familiar with the tools. But in the meantime, I think it is a significant first step.

All good because it forces Valve to look at how a zeitgeist can manipulate ratings. Ultimately, with each iteration, the system ends up benefiting consumers. In this case, societal disruptions force Valve to think of creative solutions.

Sorry, can't answer because of the way you structured your post. Too difficult. But you're wrong in many points and you ignore in some parts what I have already written and what is shown in the series itself (like "he sees the present". Nope. He himself says it in the series: "I can only see THE PAST.")

At least, you liked it. To each their own. And this season of GoT was at least not as bad as Star Wars episodes I and VIII. This gives me some hope that D&D can offer a new SW trilogy that will be hopefully alright. Not great, but not as horrible as SW I and SW VIII.

I stopped watching GoT after season 3. It was just too bleak.

As for D&D making a good Star Wars series, they better get a good team of screenwriters. Seems like GoT went downhill after they ran out of GRRM material.

Technically they didn't run out of material. They ran out of books. Season 7 and 8 come from extensive notes GRRM assembled for the book he'll eventually complete. Granted the show took liberties with more than a few character arcs, but the core stuff is likely to remain the same. Of course, GRRM might change things dramatically to regain fans who may have been turned off by the series or to basically "kill" D&D's version because, you know, it's George Martin.
