Lol, and then we have the modern game king, Notch, who bought a mansion/castle in LA after selling his brainchild (owned all the rights, could have done anything with it) and cries about it. I mean, did that bitch ever set foot in LA before he got all depressed about it?! LOL

Even if it is one of the most successful games of all time he's still a one hit wonder. That doesn't qualify for Godhood in my books.

Still EA going on 2.5 years late. Almost universally panned. Wow, how far the mighty have fallen. All they had to do was make a new Ultina. Instead they got greedy and made some shitty quasi-MMO in hopes of milking subscriber money a la WoW.

I've never had a problem with comicbook hero shows/movies for the fam, but they're definitely lost out on gearing stuff strictly for adults. All thee people throwing around crazy superpowers and no one - collateral damage or otherwise - ever dies. Don't even seem to get hurt that bad. It's like Nerf wars or something.

You know you're getting old when you keep hearing about these companies worth billions that you've never heard of or only ever vaguely heard of and have absolutely no idea what they do - much less how they make money,

It's nice to finally hear you admit that you're out of touch instead of insisting that a scam is afoot

Out of touch with what shallow, vacuous people are into, yes. I actually consider that a point of pride. Gosh, is it really true that over half the people you meet are of below average intelligence? Wry

So I suppose you learned more about that company today?
Since you're ready to make your proclamation on something you didn't know about a few hours ago.

And exactly how long do you need to study a puddle in order to know it's shallow? Just because it takes you longer to get there than the rest of us it's not our fault.

The guy is obviously mentally ill. I for one honestly believe he's self-deluded and probably isn't even aware he's a pathological liar. Like the old saying goes, it's not a lie if you believe it. Yeah, the game suffered because of technical issue not that he lied his face off about what it was and what you could do in it. Yeah, that's the ticket alright.

Just checked out that link dude, yea that game does look pretty impressive. I think the dev needs to update his FAQ, he stated 2015 was the intended release, but then it slipped to 2016. well we are now in 2017. any idea when hes going to finish the game? I'm interested in funding it, but I am curious when its really going to get completed.

I don't know. I grabbed it because I had a $5 credit on GOG I had to use up and had heard good things about it and liked the look of it. I only played it for an hour or two before I uninstalled it because I actually really enjoyed it and don't want to spoil anything. So I don' t really know when it's supposed to be done. I think it's actually just one or two guys and while the updates seem to be slow they at least seem to be steady. And the feedback on the whole is overwhelmingly positive. So yeah you can wait until it's done. Besides it's only like 15 Freedom dollars or so.

this series is not going to be a value for gamers and anybody with a clue already knew that

the real question for gamers is how the $259 6-core will compare to the $300 i5 model

however, if you use your PC for multimeda and creating graphics as well as gaming, that makes it way more complicated decision at that point because these new AMDs are clearly far ahead of intel on that, and for a much lower price... thats pretty interesting on its own for graphics people - trust me, cutting rendering times by any significant amount is a huuuuuge fucking deal

Yes it will. The performance isn't that bad and the CPUs will cost 1/4 of what Intel CPUs cost. Lastly it's wholly about optimization. The benchmarks so far are with games that have been optimized for Intel/Nvidia. As I already posted, AMD has already been addressing this for the past year for upcoming titles. So yeah, you'll get just as good, if not better performance for a lot of upcoming games for a 1/4 of the price. But if you want to waste your money on Intel that's your bidness.

It was stormin' like Norman here last night. Goddamn blue boxes blew over so I had to go out and run down the street picking everything up as it was all scattered across the lawns of my neighbors three houses down. Yeah, that had me cursing under my breath like Yosemite Sam.

No it's not. It's just better suited for other kinds of games than this. I'm in on the EA of the game Ghost of a Tale. It's a Unity game and it's gorgeous - great game too so everyone should support it!

From the PC World Article in regards to the gaming benchmarks...

Here’s why, AMD says

“As we presented at Ryzen Tech Day, we are supporting 300+ developer kits with game development studios to optimize current and future game releases for the all-new Ryzen CPU. We are on track for 1,000+ developer systems in 2017. For example, Bethesda at GDC yesterday announced its strategic relationship with AMD to optimize for Ryzen CPUs, primarily through Vulkan low-level API optimizations, for a new generation of games, DLC and VR experiences,” Taylor said. “Oxide Games also provided a public statement today on the significant performance uplift observed when optimizing for the 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 CPU design—optimizations not yet reflected in Ashes of the Singularity benchmarking. Creative Assembly, developers of the Total War series, made a similar statement today related to upcoming Ryzen optimizations.

“CPU benchmarking deficits to the competition in certain games at 1080p resolution can be attributed to the development and optimization of the game uniquely to Intel platforms—until now. Even without optimizations in place, Ryzen delivers high, smooth frame rates on all ‘CPU-bound’ games, as well as overall smooth frame rates and great experiences in GPU-bound gaming and VR. With developers taking advantage of Ryzen architecture and the extra cores and threads, we expect benchmarks to only get better, and enable Ryzen to excel at next-generation gaming experiences as well. Game performance will be optimized for Ryzen and continue to improve from at-launch frame rate scores.”

To boil it down: The world of game developers basically develop for two platforms: Intel’s small socket or Intel’s large socket. AMD, as much as it pains the fanboys, has been invisible outside of the budget realm and the results are showing up in the tests. Is that what’s really going on? I can’t say for sure, and I doubt anyone can at the moment but it's at least plausible.

So glad I came across that news about the new RX500 series in April and the Vega launching in June. I was about to pull the trigger on ASUS RX480 8Gig card today as it finally hit $300 - where up until now they've been $380, when I decided to check to see when the next price drop for cards was coming since Vega is on the way. So yeah looks like I'll be waiting another month or so to see what's what.
