One does not merely assume 1080p is peasantry garbage.

This is true because assumptions are unnecessary when dealing with facts .

Its resolution works great on more than just Assassin's Creed titles. The very words you express are a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand words could you communicate anything positive. It is folly to try!

OK, let's see... hmmm... "positive" and "UbiSoft" and "AssCreed"... nope. Does not compute. The internal buffer has suffered a shit overflow error!

Note how the recommended specs are only for 1080p and the "high" preset which probably looks like console peasantry garbage as opposed to "very high" or even "ultra".

It goes w/o saying that real men a.k.a PCMR gamers should care how the game looks and runs at ultra settings and 1440p/2160p.

There will certainly be plenty of performance reviews to clear that up once the game is released.

Moi, I won't be buying this garbage before the gold version hits a <$10 sale anyway. I'm not supporting the Ubishit customer milking thing.

B-movie type sales material. Might be fun for $4.99 or something like that for some lulz due the retarded characters and dumbshit story. Best played when under the influence...

Great job by GOG. What I don't get is why they are giving it away so easily. Their support is second to none but all the dumbtards (99.9%) are gonna be like "OMG valve r so awsum cuz they support ye olde gamez!!!11".

There are so many old games that only run fine or come with nice features because of GOG's effort but the publishers just copy&paste the GOG version to Steam and GOG get zero credit.

WTF? They really are the Ghandis of the gaming business. If I were them I would boast about it and charge fucking Valve/Steam and the publishers through the nose if they wanted to publish my fixed and updated version of their vintage crap.

Those assholes never would have touched the game ever again if not for GOG but then they profit nicely from reinvigorated sales... wake the fuck up, GOG. Communism in Poland is over. Welcome to capitalism. It's OK to make money. Really!

If y'all want to support this lootbox microtransaction scam then please do it all-out and preorder the gold version for $99.99 on Steam directly. I mean why hold back? Just do it! You know you want to.

I thought we got that with the 1060-1080 series from Nvidia and that was just within the last 2 years.

While the performance leap (and low power usage) of the 1000 series was indeed a big, awesome surprise, nothing comes even close to the mind-boggling difference the first 3dfx card offered.

While I agree that the introduction of 3dfx Glide was a pivotal moment in graphics rendering at the time, I would say we are also in hyperbole land with a blanket statement like that ("nothing comes even close to the mind-boggling difference the first 3dfx card offered").
For example, when hardware T&L made its way onto VGA cards (first or second GeForce IIRC) and we got our first pixel-shaded water in games (like in Morrowind) it definitely came close to the first 3Dfx experiences in terms of jaw-dropping.
Or the release of the awesome, almost legendary, GTX/GTS 8800 cards which also introduced all new levels of image quality and efficiency.

This shit is only changing "majorly" cuz it's scared shitless of Destiny 2 and Anthem.

Which brings up an interesting philosophical question: If shit is scared shitless, is it still shit?

Hmmmmmmm....

yawn...

I want a threadripper....

For gaming? LOL

So you're the type who brings a knife to a gunfight, eh?

I'm still indecisive whether to get a 8700K for my first PC so I can make the current 4790K my second PC and retire the 2500K which currently resides in the second PC... or keep waiting for Ice Lake.
The "problem" here is that the 2500K@4.2GHz still runs everything really well.

Oh well, if 8700K turns out great according to reviews then I'll probably upgrade and then upgrade again to phase out the 4790K when Ice Lake comes around (or to the Ice Lake successor if it is not too far in the future).

Their press release for a Win 10 PC demo reads like this... shitbox... shitbox... shitbox... shitbox... and then shitbox some more.

Just proves again what they REALLY want people to do. Buy a shitbox and grab this exclusively for shitbox, of course. Shit this fuck. Never ever gonna happen.

I mean, I guess it beats them doing absolutely nothing, but as far as Valve is concerned, this is the closest they can get to doing absolutely nothing while pretending they're doing something. They'd make absolutely fantastic politicians.

+111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111

Instead of grabbing the issue by its balls and maybe revising the whole review system with its retarded binary thumbs up/down choice, they have chosen to do something lazy and easy as always just so they can claim they did something instead of ignoring the problem (for even longer than they already have).

At the end of the day all that matters to Valve is that its publishers (not customers) are happy and the mighty $$$ keeps pouring in.

As we can see here, the review change has obviously occurred due to publisher pressure who wanted to see Valve take action against review-bombing. Of course, Valve in their slimy way are spinning it in a pro consumer direction like "we are doing this for you guys" and the mouthbreathers of the planet don't even think it over but are all like "hey yo Valve you kewl guys raaaawwwwwwk!!!!1111".

Fuck that shit, man. Seriously. Stupidity rules supreme in gaming and in RL these days... it is incredible and my theory that it is all about BSE still stands. The whole world of the burger-munching beef eaters is heading into all-out retard land. The decline is real.

Here's word on what this will bring to the MMORPG sequel...

Lemme take a stab in the dark here... fire. Maybe?

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
We don't need no water let the motherfucker burn
Burn motherfucker burn

Hello my name is Jimmy Pop and I'm a dumb white guy
I'm not old or new but middle school fifth grade like junior high
I don't know mofo if y'all peeps be buggin' give props to my ho
'Cause she all fly
But I can take the heat 'cause I'm the other white meat known as 'Kid Funky Fried'
Yeah I'm hung like planet Pluto hard to see with the naked eye
But if I crashed into Uranus I would stick it where the sun don't shine
'Cause I'm kind of like Han Solo always stroking my own wookie
I'm the root of all that's evil yeah but you can call me cookie

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
We don't need no water let the motherfucker burn
Burn motherfucker burn

Yo yo, this hard-core ghetto gangster image takes a lot of practice
I'm not black like Barry White no I am white like Frank Black is
So if man is five and the devil is six than that must make me seven
This honkey's gone to heaven
But if I go to hell then I hope I burn well
I'll spend my days with J.F.K., Marvin Gaye, Martha Raye and Lawrence Welk
And Kurt Cobain, Kojak, Mark Twain and Jimi Hendrix's poltergeist
And Webster yeah, Emmanuel Lewis 'cause he's the anti-Christ

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire
We don't need no water let the motherfucker burn
Burn motherfucker burn

Just started playing the original game a few days ago, finally left the first town to the west where the lower level 3 undead are.

Second fight in, getting bashed hard.

So my mains are a Sword/Board user with Thick Skin and 10% extra mace damage, just picked up leech as well.
Level 3, has 2 in One-Hand, 1 in arms, 1 in Armor and 1 in Shield , 1 in whatever skill to heal.
Skills are Crushing Fist, Melee Power Stance, Regeneration

The chick is Crossbow + Summons with Pet Pals trait and Arrow Recovery
Level 3, 2 in crossbows, 1 in marksman, 1 in leadership and 1 in willpower
Companions are now Jahan and Medora.

Wondering if I messed up my initial builds, are shields actually worth it? I was planning on using him as a tank but hes just getting rolled.

Check these out:

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition Character/Party Guide
Build Guide (check the right hand side menu)

In VERY broad strokes: Do not waste any ability points on non-combat stuff (except pet pal) but use mules back at base with specific non-combat abilities.
Use a lot of the water-related magic trees because they include healing etc.
Focus on mobility, ranged attacks and use nades a lot. Don't make the mistake as in other games where you hoard shit. Actually use the nades and the potions liberally.

Finally, be creative with everything from the environment, not just the obvious elemental crap, e.g. if you have a very strong character then you could carry a heavy wooden box around with you and just drop that on top of enemies.
