Yeah, I mean they're not wrong. Gun Game should bring positive comments. It's a good game mode.

are the left side menus supposed to be super wide? or is it just me? i'm on a 3440x1440 ultrawide and the left side menus are... 4 or 5 hundred pixels wide. just guessing, certainly more than a 10th of total screen width. chrome/windows 10. muuuuch wider than any text in the boxes. not a deal breaker, just looks odd for the boxes to be that much wider than the text in them.

Same here, the left bar takes up around 10% of my 3440x1440 panel.

I had heard New York had great Chinese food. I don't live in NY but a local Chinese restaurant advertises "New York style Chinese food".

Based on the two times I ate there, I conclude "New York style" means "flavorless mush".

Places elsewhere also claim to serve New York-style pizza, bagels, and more. I think it's fair to say that this is rarely accurate.

I live to your east, in CT.

Our Pizza is better.

And our Chinese food, whether from over the counter take out or sit down, doesn't have pictures. Rarely has descriptions either. But it's not really "authentic" Chinese food either.

No price yet. I might be interested in something like that, but I'd want to try it first, which obviously isn't an option...

A: It will probably be close to at least $1500 USD.

B: This is a VA panel, so be aware of that too.

Sorry to hear Blue. We had to put our standard poodle down after 13 or so years when I was growing up; he had flipped his stomach. He was colored just as Gunnar was, great dog, lots of energy but also mellow around the house. Lots of good memories of him.

You'll keep the great memories of him with you all the time.

Because they have said so. It is really weird sometimes how gamers have this "I want this game and I want it now" attitude and then stick their head in the sand and ignore even official statements just because those statements collide with their wishful thinking.

A good place to start with regard to TES VI is this article at PC Gamer for example.

It's years away—possibly not until the next generation of consoles come along, according Zenimax game director Matt Firor, who spoke to Gamespot. It's not coming until after Starfield, Bethesda's next big project, which itself has no release date and only a teaser trailer. Full development on The Elder Scrolls 6 likely won't start until that project is finished, which likely puts The Elder Scrolls 6's release date sometime in the early 2020s. We know—that's a long wait.

^ TES VI is most likely not even in full production yet until Starfield is out and who knows what ramifications the whole F76 debacle is going to have on Bethesda's internal schedules as they try to salvage that wreck and as desks get wheeled around.
It was probably a pretty unexpected development for them that gamers and press didn't just gobble F76 up as usual.

Next gen consoles (PS5) makes lots and lots of sense, too. We already have a slight end of console cycle "burn-out/flame-out" slump this year which is not unusual. The video games market is expected to lose momentum throughout 2019/2020.
You don't release a system selling flagship franchise like TES at the very end of a console cycle and also not at the very beginning of the next one when the install base is still (too) small.

PS5 and whatever garbage Microsoft hacks together are expected in Q4/2020. The holiday seasons of the years of the lord 2022/2023/2024 would seem like ideal candidates to push a game as major as TES VI on next gen consoles.

What desks? The Austin studio made 76, not the Maryland one. Starfield is no doubt being worked on by the Maryland studio, with TES6 probably under the same roof as well.

Definitely looks FO-ish. Probably a F76 expansion pack or something.
Bethesda won't release FO5 or TES6 before the next gen conslows are out. They will also wait until there is a decent enough install base to sell their games to, i.e. TES6/FO5 in Q4/2022 at the very, very earliest, more likely 2023/2024 when there are enough starving peasants lining up to insta-buy 'TES VI: Hammerfell' in at least Skyrim-like quantities!

Fallout 76 isn't going to have any expansion packs. At least not any paid ones.

Besides, they just revealed their roadmap yesterday.

I've never had a Razer mouse completely fail, and I've owned quite a few.

1999 - Boomslang 2000
2010 - Mamba
2012 - DeathAdder 3500
2012 - BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition (Keyboard)
2014 - DeathAdder Chroma
2018 - DeathAdder Elite
2019 - Mamba Elite
2019 - Huntsman (Keyboard)

Most are still in use actually by someone if not me. I still use a 2010 Mamba wireless at work. I did have to order replacement batteries for that one. The DeathAdder 3500 had an issue with the left button after awhile. Single-clicks were actually outputting double-clicks which was really annoying, but a firmware upgrade fixed that.

Now the BlackWidow keyboard I owned was terrible. It wouldn't work without drivers period under Windows 7, and function keys would get 'hung' and not work until it was power cycled, and other issues.

I finally got brave enough to try another Razer keyboard after the BlackWidow. I picked up the Huntsman, and it's been problem free so far. I found the "opto-mechnical" keys to actually be a nice upgrade from my HyperX FPS with Cherry MX Blues rather than just marketing hype.

My Blackwidow Ultimate 2016 has been great to me so far. Only have used it in Windows 10 though.

100 comments !! -- & it's not even about Star Citizen ...
So far there are over 300 posts on related Metro topics. Great free advertising for the game which up until now most people had nothing bad to say about it.

Much ado about nothing.

There was a lot more discussion about some of the controversial aspects of Battlefield 5 - it sold poorly compared to previous Battlefields. Guess free advertising doesn't always work. And for this supposedly being "much ado about nothing" you certainly seem to want to post a lot about it.

I have a problem with the sales metrics for Battlefield 5. Namely EA also introduced Origin Access Premier, which allows you to access that game, in addition to the rest of their catalog.

I cancelled my preorder for BFV, and subbed to Origin Access Premier when it launched. Been a good choice IMO considering the state of BFV.

Yeah, I drive a pickup and take umbrage to the "guys who drive pickups are morons".

I, like I said, drive a pickup, and am not an asshole. Maybe check yourself before making sweeping generalizations (not you, the OP).

I actually liked this when it first came out. Sure, it was flawed, but there was something about it that fed the ARPG loot-quest urges. I may pick this up, just to see if they've addressed some of the repetitiveness and flaws...

Yeah I played with a couple friends and it was actually quite fun with them. Sort of like a Diablo FPS a little bit.

It'd better be a tie up to the end of Andromeda damnit. Game had its issues but for me the story wasn't one of those.

God, I always hate seeing stories such as these ones. Hope to god neither of my boys have anything like this happen to them.

Good on Bethesda for granting this kids' wish though. Good to hear that they've quietly been doing this for a long time.

I wonder if Bioware goes under if Anthem flops?

After Andromeda I'm almost willing to say yes.

They basically doomed Andromeda to mediocrity (at best) when they poached all their best guys for Anthem... so if they fail to get big success out of this one it's really hard to see how EA can justify keeping them open.

And despite all that, I still enjoyed Andromeda. I'm still bummed that it went the way that it did.

I hope they have some reasonable mouse designs then, because this mouse series is fucking atrocious.

What, you mean the RAT8, which was based on the R.A.T.7 and was the most customizeable mouse on the market at the time and could be made to be absolutely comfortable for ANY user?

Yeah, atrocious.

I have a R.A.T.7 that I replaced with a RAT8 only because I wanted to have the newer model with the better sensor. R.A.T.7 still works fine on my TV PC. One of my sons will be using that computer when they get a little older. My RAT8 is great. I bought it a week before Mad Catz closed down, I was a little sad that there wouldn't be a follow up to my favorite mice. Now that they're back there's hope that they'll continue developing these things.
