nVidia ecosystem is just so much better. AMD was always a huge pain in the ass for me.

Not even close. Every single driver release whether whql or non, there would be problems like that with nvidia drivers. What pissed me off to no end was the near constant year long TDR problems with their drivers where they blamed customers, and it was easy to prove that it was their fault because they throttled the card voltage so much(to reduce heat) that it caused the GPU to crash.

Digging back through past releases, the outstanding issues were in there only for Witcher 3 and crossfire problems(previous release).

Not bitching. Just wondering if the game is good enough to warrant a download? Most games arent.

Dunno about that. Xcom2 was huge(45GB), and it was a great game. Then again unless you live in a country with shitty broadband options, it really doesn't matter that it's 34GB to download.

It took a little effort to stop this trailer about 40% in... I felt like I was playing a Cliff's Notes version...

Fucking sold.

If I remember right, they did something similar for the first HR game as well, though it only touched on the manufacturing plant. This seems similar, but yeah I'm liking the looks of this.

I see some of you conspiracy theorists are out in force. Of course citation is required, do you think other encyclopedias are written without citation or verification?

Considering that's how wikipedia operates, only verifiability not fact. If I can get a half a dozen people to push an article saying VaranDragon screwed over 200 people for $84m, that's all fact in the eyes of wikipedia.

Exactly ;/ The wikipedia principle of "citation required" has lead to some absolutely absurd pieces of wrong information, and which hilariously enough is often SO WRONG that not even the scientists quoted in said articles can correct it, since it goes against what is cited...

Well that's because citations don't have to be correct. Wikipedia believes that "verifiability not truth" is the standard, people have seen the comic from xkcd about citogenesis I'm sure. That's the state of wikipedia and has been for years. If you're donating, you're supporting this garbage. And neither admins or those powermods that enjoy the groupthink give a care about facts.

Then again you see shit like "wikipedia investigates wikipedia, finds no corruption" too.

A bit torn here..I don't doubt it would take some work, and it would be questionable how many people would actually pay monthly for it.

...

I'm guessing the "pristine realm" option isn't what the vanilla folks would want? It doesn't sound like it...


Depends really. If it was say $4/mo I'd pay it to play on a vanilla server, I loved vanilla and TBC. I'd be happy to play servers that were 60/70(respective) capped and had all that nice original content to play. But some people want "max level" and the want to play that content with the difficulty ramped up too, and then there's stuff all in between.

I wouldn't expect it to be a huge thing, but there's probably enough of a niche between current subs and those who played on the emulated servers that they could make money off it. Hell they could even offload support to a group like MVPs and so on if they really wanted to.

I do not think Kotaku is journalistic, which is also why GamerGate's fury at them over "ethics" confuses me - it's a blog.

Kotaku labels themselves as "journalists" just a FYI. And when their parent company was in court recently for the Hogan sex tape, they labeled themselves as such too. Now you know why people have a problem with them. They want the label of journalists, while having the lack of accountability of bloggers. So people hold them to the first, and make complaints because they really are that shitty.

Wow, lost for words...the logic of your average redneck redditor is astonishing: some journos fall for a trollbait = WE WUZ RITE BOUT TEH #GG GUISE!!!111!

*facepalm*...also, HL3 confirmed.


At this point, shitposting and making stuff up so that these sites collapse is probably going to be the best thing to do. If they're not busy shilling for their friends or companies giving them free shit for xyz game, they're busy not even doing basic research and pumping out garbage that can be debunked in minutes.

Man I haven't even finished the first game, it's still sitting there. I even picked up a controller so I wouldn't have to suffer through the shit PC controls. Oh well, might get around to it when I finish withcer 3 in another 200 hours so so.

Aside from theories, why would it be more limited? There are already things modders can't do in FO4 because they don't have access to the tools, if anything the kit will expand mods much more than before.

Simply? Unless they add F4SE support, and the developers do so themselves you're going to be limited in the pool of what modders can release. The F4SE team has said repeatedly they're not supporting consoles at all. And if you look back to previous games(FO3, NV, Oblivion, Skyrim) all your fun mods require the SE unless(frostfall, UI changes, some clothing systems, weapon/ammo mods, expanded user ability mods, etc. Unless it's simply some form of graphical change, even then you're going to be limited to the amount of space available to load the mod into memory, I wouldn't be surprised if the game itself is still limited to 32bit memory addresses unlike on our 64bit machines. An example would be between Fo3/NV and Skyrim which allowed mesh-bodyshape meta data to be changed on the fly, which was done natively in skyrim but required the xSE and some cases custom extender plugins to handle it.

Er, I'm pretty sure you mean regressive right.

I'm not even sure what a regressive leftist would be...

No I mean regressive left. SJW's, radfems, anti-sex leftists, pro-authoritarian leftists, take your pick. They're there. Those whiny kids crying about Trump 2016 and how they're "triggered" yeah, regressive left. The ones who shut down debates by pulling fire alarms and trying "muh safe space" on the left? Regressive left. Politicians screaming "right wing fascists" against any dissenting viewpoint? Regressive left. The feminists out there protesting and attacking women for wanting to show of their sexuality? Yep, more regressive leftists.

Yells "islamophobia" but then attacks and counter protests gays when they're physically assaulted by islamists, regressive left.

The regressive right for all intents is dead, those on the left? Alive, kicking and there are plenty of mainstream politicians echoing their BS as well.

Where did I indicate that I seek the banning, firing or silencing of anyone? I have no time for the extreme regressive left, and since I have a job and a life, I never have to meet or encounter them in any way except when the yahoos on the forum I frequent feel the need to inform me about how outrageous their impotent prattling is.

This torch and pitchfork crowd that cries big meaty man tears at the very mention of things that are not them or fuckable by them in their entertainment of choice, as if they are the sly tendrils of a grand conspiracy are everywhere these days! Gaming is full of these people for some reason. And I take great joy in their anguish regardless of how much of their politics I share. It makes me happy. You made me happy today. Thankyou.

Missed the /s I take it? It's okay.

You don't need to have time for the extreme regressive left, though it has plenty of time for you and it's 1920's style anti-sexual revolution mentality. Showing too much ankle at the beach? Better cover it up. Women wanting to use their sexuality to sell something? Better attack that magazine. Women enjoying sexuality(along with men) as a power fantasy? Better make sure it's banned and blocked for others enjoyment.

There are people crying over this, but it's really one sided. It's that regressive left element who is. Every time they say that "Tracer's butt is too sexy and should be removed from showing it off" every time that they hamfist some character into something with a shit bit of writing, and every time they push a developer not to release a product in the west because it'll offend their sensibilities. If living in the new moral panic about sexualizaton makes you happy, and it makes you happy to want to regress prior to the 1970's when women had the choice of doing whatever you want, and men were "allowed" to look because women wanted them to, you're part of the problem.

That whole period of "wanting women to do whatever they want" and that includes "showing off their body in a sexual way" must really hurt your feelings. Then again, why don't you want women to have jobs as models, or booth babes or go-go dancers.

Sounds like this game has much bigger problems than a throwaway GG joke and token trans NPC. Though there have been plenty of crap stories set in the FR in all sorts of mediums so they are in good company there.

But good on them anyway for getting those insane winguts who see the continued forward march of the moral zeitgeist as some kind of existential threat to their hairy white testicles that much closer to having a stroke. That's gods work that is.

Up next, Numinar demands the classical works of Shakespeare to be banned, but double downs on Romeo and Juliet because it's underage thus progressive. /s

"SJW" used to imply actual malice, ie. using social justice as an excuse to be an asshole, saying you care about X, but really only to get a pat on the back. These days the term is tossed around so much it vaguely applies to anyone left of /pol/. ...

As for DA:I, I can't personally remember there being any major hub-bub about it in general, or Krem in particular. I do remember some random forum posts somewhere complaining that the writing for them was bad, but given I didn't care much for Iron Bull I probably didn't get all the convo options or just glossed over them. AFAICR their gender wasn't brought up at all when talking to them.

No actually it's thrown around for anyone that's left of the general left. You know, those lovely regressive types that on one hand say "slut walks are great!" but "sexy breasts oppress me!" all in one go or turn around and pull fire alarms at speeches to shut down dissenting points of view. Perhaps you need to spend more time outside of the internet, where you'll bump into normies using SJW as an identifier for batshit insanity for those on the far left that act in a regressive way. Here maybe this will help you out.

But there was no real hub-bub over krem. If anything it's as you said, the main complaints were the writing. If DA:I was released today, those people complaining over Krem and the shitty writing would be labeled as "far right gamergooblers who hate women and trans people." Instead of letting people identify it for what it was: Shitty writing. GG's best recruitment tool has always been the regressive left, and especially those that like to use either guilt by association or labeling people as such.
