Suspect there is more to this story and that there were issues between this guy and his mom before she decided to throw things out without, apparently, telling him. Apparently, a sh*t ton of things.

Soo... anybody on Bluesnews play Wolcen at all? I've heard pretty terrible things about the release and even current state of the game; shittier Diablo clone, basically, mostly abandoned by the developers?

SteamCharts kind of sums it all up

I played at release for a few weeks up until shortly after the big nerf to the Bleeding Edge meta. Problems o'plenty with the game, and still to this day.
I do think there is a pretty solid foundation for a good, maybe even great game there. Might be too little too late.

Enjoying this season theme a lot more than Season 21's theme.
That is not saying very much though, I would have found watching paint dry while being flogged more enjoyable than season 21's theme.

Good on AMD. Curious what RDNA3 will bring next year, they're on record saying again twice the performance gain vs previous generation (Big Navi /RDNA2)

I think I'm gonna sit tight till early'ish next year. Wait for 6900xt reviews & availability, or wait for 3080TI reviews & availability... Kinda works out, let AMD and motherboard partners iron out any issues with the 5xxx series CPUs in the meantime.

If I go with the B550 and get a Gen4 NVME 2TB and a Gen3 1TB can I partition them so Windows - and older games that don't really require speed - sits on the Gen3 drive and all the more demanding newer games I would put on the Gen4 drive. So Gen3 would be C: and Gen4 would be D:. Can one do that on those boards?

I do not have an definitive answer, but I imagine it *could* be as easy a Bios option, or even something you can do in Windows 10 with Disk Management or a third party tool. It appears Disk Management would allow me to change my C:\ into any letter I want, not gonna confirm the attempt though. I do not think assigning different letters to the drives should interfere with the interface (gen3/gen4) of those drives in any way.

Keep us posted on the processor. Exciting times these days.

It does not take that much work to put your game on Steam... Just be honest and say you think you'll make more money from sales of the new expansion without Valve's help.

Could very well be it. Alternatively I think Arenanet know the game is a bit of a sh*tshow and releasing in on Steam would require a lot of work on their part. I can't imagine coming into Guild Wars 2 today as a new player, the very least Arenanet would have to do, IMO, is include all current expacs AND Seasons 2, 3, 4 and Icebrood Saga as one price on Steam. They should do that right now anyway. I don't see them doing that, and if they don't I see that driving new players away from Steam. Guild Wars 1 success on steam was also not a success. Only 32 total user reviews for the entire Trilogy, fail. Too much work, if they want to do it right, for little gain as I see it. And yeah -30% less gain on top of it.

Had a good lol at the $999 price tag for the 6900xt, assuming there's availability that is likely the route I go.

I did note they did not mention ray tracing at all, and anything to compete with DLSS. I might be wrong about the DLSS thing, I was listening in the background while working on something else. Will rewatch later. If the leaks are correct, the AMD cards do take a noticeable hit with Ray Tracing On compared to NVidia. So yeah, $999 is a better price when competing with the 3090 4k vs 4k, but there's a reason for it. Less memory, slower memory and poor raytracing when compared and less features. Better power consumption and price per watt though!

Eagerly waiting for reviews!

Edit: read some posts in the Out of the Blue thread. Definitely need to rewatch the presentation.

"The film’s release has been postponed until April 2021 in order to preserve the theatrical experience for moviegoers."

If there are any theatres left, as well as enough consumers left willing to go to them.

Re: Zen 3...

By chance has anyone purchased an ASUS AM4 motherboard recently? Say within the past 2 months? I'm planning on picking one up soon to pair with a 5800X (currently leaning towards the ROG Strix B550-F), but as I don't currently have an AM4 CPU, I wanted to make sure they are shipping with the latest BIOS that supports Zen 3 (BIOS 1004, AGESA 1.0.8.0). So far, I haven't been able to find confirmation.

Fair question and concern, I do not have an answer but I recommend you ask the same thing at the AMD Subreddit. There are some decent people there, among the rabble, that should be able to help. Or ask Asus customer support directly.

It was a 10gb download on-top of the base game; auto downloaded when I opened Bethesda's game launcher this morning.
Will give this a go this weekend after Amnesia Rebirth.

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.
I played the prologue yesterday and here's my take:

  • 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.

^ This plus way more.

The Char creation is just awesome. I spent at least 20 mins getting my char where I wanted her.

BTW, the stats they released a while back on the race traits and skills was all wrong, its now correct in the game. Was so glad to see that fixed.

The story and game play so far and been nothing but Awesome DnD.

Serious Sam 4 looks good... Gonna try it out

Assuming you're "serious", I would temper your expectations.
It's fine.. took the risk and bought it. Played through it once on normal. The reviews I've read, including the more harsh ones, have been honest.

Music's awesome though, really happy about that.

Caught/Stealthily modifying, how about instead they were fixing their mistakes.
They used the wrong caps, it happened to more that one card manufacturer.
Nothing to see here.
Although EVGA did come out almost immediately with new glamour shots and an explanation.

Props to Jacob and EVGA..

This is the most ridiculous launch I can remember for anything (major) hardware related.

Again, though, this is the new TITAN.

Is it, though? Linus's video today shows that some common Titan features have been completely disabled on this card via drivers which effect various performances negatively on whatever workloads discussed. Worth a watch (and a rewatch for me).

Aww, sad to see of some these reviews. Was hyped to buy it today, avoided preordering but thinking I too may wait for a sale.

On SS3 - I liked the game, after the first 4 or 5 call of duty missions. Really opened up in the latter half of the game and I really enjoyed the last level (like all Serious Sam final levels) with friends.

Edit: I enjoy and trust this guys reviews and this really bums me out

Assuming it's true, it's not a surprise. Early adopter tax dealing with this, that's what you get.

Those of us waiting for more information about 20gb \ Ti or Super versions, and/or RDNA2 thank you all for beta testing 3080 for us.
