Golfing on the PC is so bad that I still play Links386 when I get the itch.

Looking forward to this DLC... the exploration phase of this game is so boring that I end up abandoning most of my games before I get through it. The changes look like they'll help a bit.

"Woman defecates, throws poop at Tim Hortons employee during altercation. "

I lived out there for 2 years and have been to that Timmy's. I left because of the drug problems, apparently I made a good decision.

Since the new maps are free, a player testing model makes a ton of sense. Why not have the community take part in refining it? There's nothing better than real world metrics.

What's annoying as hell is watching several updates come through Steam yesterday only to have the game completely unaccessible last night.

The trailer narrator sounds like he's a Russian trying to fake a British accent.

I moved to BC 3 years ago. All of the senior tech positions I applied for were salaries less than 1/2 of Seattle. I ended up consulting from home for a US based company making more than double the best Canadian offer I got. Add to that, Vancouver cost of living is straight out of the Twilight Zone. The worst part is that Canadians will complain a little about it, but are ultimately fine with things. I love Canada, but this (and the drug epidemic) is why I don't live there anymore.

I couldn't believe the apologists that came out last time I criticized this program. Nvidia is not a good steward to PC gaming.

Frostpunk looks great, but it seems like you have to build out the city the same every time. I can't see how to have success in the game without doing a cylindrical build. I just don't like the idea of a city builder that has little to no variation.

I'm not sure how much more content can be crammed into one game.
I'm all for more events and stuff, but espionage abilities would be a good start... better battle resolution and interface for sure... better research tree management, better pirate mechanics, etc.

Stellaris is still incredibly boring, imo. I have put in 50 hours and the game really drags in spots and some stuff just feels under developed. I prefer Distant Worlds far more than Stellaris, but I'm open minded and will keep at Stellaris... one of these DLC will eventually make the game fun.

Man I tried to like Distant Worlds but I can't read the interface on my monitor. The text is too small. And I can't seem to find anything that will actually scale it.

Has anyone experienced the same thing?
That's probably the game's biggest complaint. I don't have any issues, but I do have to squint to read some things with my 20/20 vision. I believe the Bacon Mod changes the font to make it more readable, but that is not an easy mod to install. I'm sure Distant Worlds 2 will fix this problem.

My last game I hit a guy point blank in the head with a sawed off shotgun, somehow he survived it with his level 3 helmet and killed me. Looking forward to this change.

Why do you guys assume cheating is such a problem? Do you have proof? I found that the kill cam pretty much documents how much I suck.

Gee, AMD, you sure seem mad that nVidia is profitable and you are not. Gsync costs money to develop and to manufacture. Should they just give the hardware away for free or at a loss? You of course NEED to take a loss on lots of shit because nobody will buy your products otherwise. nVidia has the superior product and they know it, so of course they're going to capitalize on that. That's why it's called business. That's why it's called capitalism. AMD, shut the fuck up until you can start being competitive. It just makes you look like a bunch of whiny bitches. >_<

I miss ATI.

Couple facts... AMD's profits are up. AMD offers Freesync as an open standard for free. Nvidia is using partner programs in bad faith to coerce hardware manufacturers to not produce AMD-based products.

NVidia is trying to take a shortcut here to undermine competition. If their product is that much superior then they should not have to resort to these shenanigans.

News Comments > New AMD Ryzen CPUS Announced
7. Re: New AMD Ryzen CPUS Announced Apr 13, 2018, 11:37 BIGtrouble77
 
I was looking at AMD CPU a few months ago and I could not find one without a wraith cooler included. I had a build planned with a water cooler and didn't want to pay the garbage OEM cooler tax. I figured that the majority of users buying individual CPUs would rather use the cooler of their choice, but I guess I've been proven wrong.

I can't stand it when people assume I'm playing Battlefield 1 at 2pm.

LOLZ ... ironically BF1 is not even on Steam but on Origin and the Origin client has had an invisible mode since launch (or shortly thereafter).

I know, you probably added it as a non-Steam game or just gave it as an example w/o considering that BF1 is not even on Steam. However, ESPECIALLY with regard to BF1, it would be easy as pie to play it "anonymously" because it's on Origin that's had a freakin' invisible mode for years already.

Good point, BF1 was a bad example. I was trying to remember one of the games he plays and forgot that one was not Steam. He would be playing PUBG, Assassin's Creed games (uplay through steam), Ultimate General Civil War, etc.

I just want to be able to not display as online without going into offline mode (which is a huge inconvenience). Between the groups I'm in and having to appear to work that I'm not gaming during the day (I'm not), I have to go through so many hoops. Since my son and I share our gaming computer, I can't stand it when people assume I'm playing Battlefield 1 at 2pm.
