Related to a discussion here last week about AMD stock and investing; I wish I could tell when the bottom of this latest dip for Intel would be; possibly consider throwing some money at their stock. It's inevitable the stock should rebound sometime. Been a lot of up and downs the last couple years. Curious to see the fallout of this suing will be.

Boy was Wolcen a letdown...

The Steamcharts do not show a pretty picture; no one is playing or cares...

Awful awful launch, brutal bugs which some still aren't fixed today, nerfs to the only aspects of the game that were remotely fun at launch; sadly this list just goes on.

Zen 3, here I come!

Right? And with the rumors/leaks of RNDA2 looking like a total beast and potentially equal to if not better than Ampere, I might be doing a complete 180 here on my next build - going from an Intel/Nvidia combo for the last 15 years to a full AMD setup... crazy. Famous last words..

As someone with an all AMD system right now (3700X + 5700XT)...don't. While the hardware may kick total ass on paper, AMD's Radeon drivers on Windows are years behind Nvidia's. If AMD put their Linux driver team on also doing the Windows drivers, I would be less skeptical. As it stands, their Windows driver team is like a group of C stringers. Which is truly disappointing.

Excellent point. Thank you.
I'm on the AMD reddit all the time; yeah people aren't happy with their software (understatement), and haven't been for years.

Seriously considering buying some stock of AMD (not just because it went nuts today and a couple days ago)... With RNDA2, Zen3 and 4 coming up, RDNA3 and the consoles releasing in a few months if feels like it's a stock that can't fail... EDIT: and their continuing growth/success in the server market and expanding in OEMS too for their processors.

As usual for the stock market most of the above is already factored into the current valuation of the stock... and some would say it is factored in more than properly already. The AMD P/E ratio is already through the roof. AMD has a P/E of over 70 while Intel sits at 12, i.e. AMD stock is valued 6x higher than Intel (nVidia is at about 40 by the way which is also considered "dangerously" high by many). The long term S&P 500 average P/E is between 13 and 15. AMD will have to keep posting record after record to justify the high valuation or many investors will drop it like a hot potato if there is as much as a slight hiccup.

OTOH, the stock market rarely follows logic. It is entirely possible that AMD stock will just keep trucking into infinity. I will stay away from it but that might be a poor choice, of course, if the stock hits $100 next year. Hindsight is always 20/20.
As a more conservative investor, I have personally invested in a less "hot" and more neutral stock a few months ago: TSMC. Bought it in March and it stands at +33% for now. Not too bad...

Thank you for the reply - I'm a stock market scrub looking to take a course.
TSMC, the growing demand for their services is insane. Grats on the ROI.

Imo the only news that mattered here was their ceo stating in the past 24 hours that the series 4000 desktop cpus will be out by end of the year.
Lisa Su stated "As you know with Ryzen, we're always on a journey, a journey to push the highest performance that we can for our users and our fans. So Zen 3 is exactly that. Zen 3 is looking great in the labs, we're on track to launch later this year, and I can't wait to tell you more about it."

If you listen carefully you can hear Intel saying 'oh fuck' in the background.

Mwahaha

Better Silicon, slight performance increase for a noticeable increase in-cost... The free game is a nice touch..

This whole refresh is mostly just a marketing gambit by AMD to keep people talking about AMD and not on Intel / Comet Lake. Smart move I think.

Can I haz Zen3 please now so I can build a new computer, thank you.

Whilst Shalebridge Cradle was only a quest in TDS that was, hands down, the anus puckering experience. Outlast was PFS too.

Shalebridge Cradle, to me, is still the single greatest level of any video game I've ever played to this day. Haunted Cathedral from Thief 1 get's honorable mentions in this category too. Now I need to replay all three games again.

The funny thing is that the "funny" Carbot video isn't at all funny when you know what it is about. More like makes you remember why you stopped playing D2 online.

I bought TL2 day of release - feels like 200 years ago.
I was fairly vocal on these forums that I did not enjoy that game very much, TL1 had a lot more replay-ability in my opinion. I wasn't alone either.
I recently replayed TL2,with this one mod, TL2 Essentials It's a broad scope mod that enhances everything.

Ended up playing through the campaign 3 times with my char and did some mapping. Really enjoyed it. Anyone looking for an ARPG to play, TL2 with this mod (and there are others ) should give TL2 a shot. Or if you already have it, but didn't care for it much, give it another go!

Maybe it is not a fair comparison (TL2 modded vs TL3), with TL3 in EA....but it's been 8 years - TL3 has nothing on TL2, especially with the mod I linked...

Torchlight 3 isn't a mess, but it's a major downgrade from Torchlight 2 in almost every respect except maybe the art. (TL2 - a game that came out almost 8 years ago, and cost less than the early access price of TL3)

Played about 90 mins, refunded. Its foundation was build on a cheap F2P game, and it shows - not sure how they can turn this one around.

About the rumored Zen 3 delay, It was just a rumor, what a shock It really didn't make sense for them to do that anyway.

It's simple, it's late 90's and I liked it. The devs have been pretty active on Steam Discussion group the last few days, seem like great people. Feedback has been positive too.
Similar to Afraid of the Dark?

They describe it as Thief with guns. thiefwithguns.com will direct you to the steam page.

And it definitely has elements of Thief. The full version will have more Thief like features enabled they promise, for example roof-top prowling which is said to be a major feature in the games design. They're even trying to get Stephen Russell to voice act in some capacity.
