So what the fuck am I missing here?
Who is paying to play a SP RPG in an unfinished state? You only get one crack at it. Remember when that version of that old wolverine movie leaked online like 15 years ago before they had finished rendering all the CG for the fight scenes? It was like half the movie wasn't finished. I watched it, and was like: "wow, what an utter piece of shit". Years later I saw the finished version, and while it didn't make it a great movie, it became totally watchable, and even something that I would have had a lot of fun going to the theatre to see. I was always mad at myself for having ruined it so utterly horribly for myself.
So these are the "die hard" day-0 fans of the series who will be getting the worst possible experience (outside of closed testing) with the game they love so much.
I don't get it.

How is the combat compared to DoS2? From every video I've seen (before the alpha), it seemed pretty much identical.

Have fun testing this Alpha testers!
On that note, is the game (so far) any good? Do you think it will live up to the hype? (Please no spoilers) Thanks.
- Intro CGI sequence is awesome
- cool char generation embedded into intro
- graphics are very good, nice transition from cut scene / dialogue to game world and back
- art style seemed good where Original Sin was just too "cartoonish" for me
- combat was easy to pick up
- some nice skill checks / decisions in the first hour, not sure I want to see the D20 die roll, though
While I swore to myself to never touch a fantasy RPG again after Witcher 3 (it was just too good) I actually want to play this now.

I just want to thank all those who will be beta testing this for those of us that will be waiting for the 1.0 release. Thank you.

Epic - app fairness.
Apple's anti-competitive behavior, Epic is free to make their own phone.

Again, though, this is the new TITAN. No one bought that, either, because the bump wasn't huge, and because it wasn't aimed at your general enthusiast.
I'd be shocked if more than one person here owned a TITAN, but if you walk into any dev studio, and plenty of graphics design firms, and you'd find quite a lot of them.
Exactly. In nVidia's own words (the constant repetition of "creators" is trying to tell us something, I think):Similar to TITAN RTX, GeForce RTX 3090 will appeal to the most demanding users. It’s great for creators making movies and rendering cinematics. It’s sure to appeal to researchers building systems for data science and AI. And, of course, it’s ideal for extreme gamers who want to experience the new world of 8K gaming.
The GeForce RTX 3090 enables creators who push their creations to the limits of graphics hardware with professional creation applications and with large models, detailed scenes, and high-resolution textures.
Rendering in these types of applications not only requires a more powerful GPU. It requires more GPU memory. Creators using the GeForce RTX 3090 will find that they can work with datasets that are more than twice as large as those that will fit into the memory of the GeForce RTX 3080.

The 3090 isn't really aimed at enthusiasts

Meanwhile, Apple continues to abuse it's monopoly position.Just hours after the reveal of Apple’s new services bundles, the tech giant has already taken criticism for evidently favoring its own apps over those with which it directly competes in its App Store.
Spotify, which has been feuding with the tech giant for years now over its hefty App Store fees, quickly seized on the opportunity to raise Apple antitrust concerns.
Yeah Apple is definitely not the good guys here. While Epic intentionally violated the rules it has known about since the beginning of iPhones and deserve to be taken down because of it, they are both guilty of BS business practices. F 'em both.
