Noice. I hope that flaming dumbfuck gets sentenced to pay AT LEAST the full sum and that Epic will donate the monies to charity for mentally handicapped attention whores.

Twitch thots hardly need more money.

STEAM can't even keep their store online , much less fully stream the games to all of it's customers....
Publishers may love this idea & locking it all down , but unless we get a vastly improved national broadband upgrade & power grid - this cloud based gaming will be crap to use/ play on for a long time.
They'll never be able to keep the paying customer base ....

Steam can't even code their new game library UI decently.

Apparently some people with i5s are having a lot of issues with freezing and stuttering. It was good of Rockstar to not bother testing with such an unpopular CPU

I'm having smooth butter performance at 1440p with a 1080ti and a 3900X, huge upgrade from the console experience.

Well, Rockstar is not known for lean and mean code. Do we know if it has Denuvo DRM? That hates anything less than 6core/12thread cpus. Older i5's are 4c/4t or 6c/6t.

Its rather amusing that Nvidia recommends a rtx 2060 for 1080p 60fps on high settings.

Edit: Ok, looking at the performance graphics linked above, the game is just a gpu power hog. 1080p mostly ultra settings gets you 80fps on a 2080ti.

Naw, the Steam Library UI patch pushed them past Steam in usability.
ouch

Its true. The worst part is they actually let it go out of beta while being a memory hog and that it can't properly draw the library screen on many people's systems, including my own. It takes 5-10 seconds now to load the library page and I have to move my mouse around to get it to draw the screen faster. All for a bunch of portrait shaped icons, a unremovable "whats new" row of game info I probably don't need. All games are listed on the left side in small font no matter what and clicking on one brings up the old game page with news/links.

Gone is the ability to minimize that if I don't want/need it. As said above by MB, its UI designers ignoring function to make something new and supposedly pretty.

"I suppose the issue is, I don't consider it price gouging. The $40 base game was a full game in it's own right."

Except when it isn't. Take two games Paradox published last year, Surviving Mars and Battletech. $40 games that dropped to $20 or less during sales with year one dlc that costs more than the base game. It has been $1 cheaper to rebuy Surviving Mar's Gold version for months now when the game is on sale. A game that was just given away for free on Epic store.

Paradox just announced a new game that will be exclusive to Epic store. If Paradox tries their standard dlc tactics there with no frequent sales or price competition, I doubt the game will do well.

AMD also always does better than Intel and Nvidia outside the US because of the markups they add. It makes zero sense to buy anything but AMD outside the US.

It depends on the country usually. From what I've heard over the last few years in Europe, AMD cpu's run cheaper than Intel. GPU's is usually the opposite with Nvidia running cheaper. Lately Nvidia and Intel's markups have not helped and thus AMD sells more and more.

News Comments > Stellaris Expansion and DLC Announced

4. Re: Stellaris Expansion and DLC Announced Oct 19, 2019, 20:11 FloorPie
 
I could rant for a long while on Stellaris. Its their only "grand strategy" game that I can really get into and isn't tedious to learn the UI. Taking out the travel methods was an excuse for them not being able to fix other problems (static defenses were pointless) or dumb design decisions. 2.0+ is ok, they fixed the border system but then put in standard paradox grand strategy Europa Universalis like restrictions. Such as not being able to declare war on a empire that didn't share a border with you or horrendous war weariness costs while the AI cheats horribly.

They originally called it more of a 4x/rts hybrid and yet it has no real rts components as the battles are a pretty light show with no player interaction.

They've had a few humble bundles with it in the past year or two. Not too long ago I picked it up with most of the DLC for $15, namely the expansions and not units/flags fluff etc.. I say most because I think there is still $100+ worth of DLC I don't own on steam. Its Paradox. You buy CK2 once CK3 has been released.

Heh, so in theory its taken them 3+ years to make federations work properly or just be worth the effort and you'll have to buy it as dlc expansion. Standard Paradox.

I thought the states had insane d/l speeds?
Down here I've been on 200mbps 4-5 years.

A lot of places do, and this is one of them. I could get 1 Gbps if I wanted to pay more, but I don't have a real need for it.

The 1TB monthly bandwidth cap doesn't help either. They finally offer 1gb in my area but want a 2 year agreement and usually triple play package deal requiring I get their phone and tv.

The speed boost is called "over provisioning" and is usually a 20% boost in speeds depending on the connections. My 120 Mbps connection will get 150 from Steam and most other gaming sites. They just upped speeds for most people across the country. Sadly my older plan did not get a free boost.

One of the best places if you have any issues with comcast is the dslreports.com sub forum for comcast/xfinity.

Imagine the uproar around here if he'd said Black Lives Matter.
No wait, that's kneeling in the nfl.

Muahhh I wouldn't give a fuck if he said that, or took a knee because you can do that kind of shit here in America.
Colin Kaepernick would like a word.

The difference is that blitzchung protested an issue based on reality; on things actually going on systematically in China and one can easily show the evidence. Colin protested a non-issue directly contradicted by factual data and originated from a racist and victimhood mindset. And for those prone to straw-man other people's arguments: I am not saying there is no police violence or that there's nothing of anything.

Pretty sure Colin is protesting a real issue.

Yes, and what was the NFL's respose to a Dallas player who wanted to salute fallen cops via stickers on his uniform or whatever after that BLM march when a lone guy shot and killed several cops a few years ago? They told him no. Colin Kapernick and others can bend a knee all they want though. Such oppression.

The NFL and NBA have long controlled the speech of their players and staff. The HK issue I guess has just finally cheesed off a majority of Americans that now everyone notices how much corporations have sold out to do business with China.

lul 1080p in 2019. Laugh2

When gpu companies and even decent reviewers are touting $350 as high end 1080p and entry level 1440 (they're really not), what do you expect most people to do?

4k has been an illusion for years in pc gaming. Then last year it became a $999 minimum card unless you wanted to be entry level at $700 for a 2080 or stick with a 1080ti which at least had 11gb of ram to handle 4k.

The GPU market has been a joke for the past 3-4 years.

About time. Also, if you have any interest in building your own castles, the game is worth it for that. Just play single player, turn on god/admin mode and spawn in all the items you need.

If you don't want to buy it on EGS, buy it here. I've had people tell me Steam isn't a monopoly, despite so many games using it exclusively, because you can buy it elsewhere (then install it on Steam.)

BL3 is on the Humble Store. Problem solved.

Yes, this is known by anyone following this nonsense and game sales in general (see isthereanydeal dot com). So its nice that they sell some of their games on humble and greenman gaming now. Note it seems to be mostly the big AAA games. Still a monopoly like you claim Steam is though. So, 3 stores to choose from for Epic vs 5-10 for most major Steam games.

I might actually buy Satisfactory if it was available through humble.

"but no one gets mad when a game is exclusive to steam!"

Yeah, because Steam doesn't make a publisher go exclusive to them. Any publisher can take their game to GOG, or Windows Store, or itch.io, or whatever. Steam doesn't dangle money in front of a dev and tell them "If you take this you can't go anywhere else"

In your defense of Epic Game Store, I'd like you folks to be a little less facetious.

They don't have to dangle money because they're by far the biggest. That's Epic's entire point. PC game sales needs better competition. As for those competitors you mentioned, they've been competing with Valve for years and making no headway.

except this competition is bad for the consumer.

are you not consumer too?

Know what else is bad for the consumer? Monopolies like Steam.

If Steam is a monopoly then so is Epic with their exclusives. At least there is price competition on Steam these days.
