Firmware that's only 238MB? Geeze I must be getting old, when I can remember a firmware flash weighing in at under 360Kb.

I quite liked both ME1 and KotOR. I actually thought the story in ME1 was better than the story of ME2. In any case, he'd still be a thousand times better than that fuckwallet Mac Walters.

The story in ME1 was much better than ME2, mainly because it didn't revolve around "Obi-wan kenobi, you're my only hope" go out and save your team members from their own head demons.

Yifes, how long have you worked at Blizzard?

Man you're getting more cynical than I am, and that's saying something.

Elite Dangerous issues?

I rest my case about ATI Driver issues.
What? That nvidia doesn't state known bugs that are in their drivers anymore?

Well looks like they learned something, when WoL and HoS launched SEA was out before us. You could play the game early, by downloading the SEA client.

Another ~4 days until the review embargoes end. Still not really intresting, seeming to come off more as Mass Effect meets Post-Apocalyptica, not fallout.

HISTORICALLY, The reason I went with Nvidia after 3dfx died was looking at performance and driver support. ATI has consisitantly been horrific with driver support, BEYOND what Nvidia has by leaps and bounds.

Sorry man, I dumped nvidia a couple of years back because their driver support and because of problems on their end. Their solution to the TDR problems was, and continues to be "blame the user." Horrific driver support on nvidia's end including crashes due to their drivers included telling people that problems they're experiencing should be taken up with the manufacturer of the card. I had a TDR problem with the last AMD beta drivers in palemoon, reported it, and got a response 40 minutes later saying that it has been fixed and will be in the next beta release.

You get banned if you go online with the screen resolution mod, from what I hear.

Haven't had it happen yet. That's going on near 4 years since I started using resolution mods.

I feel like I should give it another whirl before the end. I haven't played since a year after launch. I would like to see how it has changed since then. I wonder if my toon still exists. He would still be at level 60.

Last time I really played it still, Lich King was the last expansions. I still somewhat enjoyed playing it then, but yeah the massive changes that have happened over the last few years has been the thing that's kept me from resubbing. People want their unique classes back, fails, faults and all, along with their unique talent trees, and more skills than you can shake a stick at.

From my friends, who only recently quit. Their big complaint especially in raid content was gimicky fights, not tough fights. All of us remember the Vale gear check + ability check that was there, and loved the hell out of it. Anyway, Blizz has said they never delete characters, so your toon would be still around. But they'll have moved them to a major city with all the content changes.

Seems like this is just making them work on new OSes, kinda like GOG. But I can't understand this sentence : Create conditions for experiences that look as good as they play.

I'm not interested in more D2, I want more D3.

They already work on new OSes, they don't support higher resolutions without some other things though. And some of the stuff is very dated especially with the method of sprite rendering they used at the time.

Slashman wrote on Nov 3, 2015, 21:17:
Word from Steam reviews is that this offers less than the previous Anno. It is story only. Has much more 'streamlined' gameplay and no longer has factions.

Anno games are kind-of city builders but not in the traditional Sim City sense. They deal with resource management and harvesting. Environmental impacts, military conflict and trade. The previous one also had a sandbox mode as well as a story mode.


Biggest things I enjoyed from 2070 was having the factions, being able to use all three employee types, and setting up functioning production queues. I must have nearly 400 hours in 2070, the story mode is great in it and so is the sandbox mode. No sandbox mode though is a insta no-buy for me though, that's what kept me playing again. Even after I'd completed all the scenarios that are randomly timed. Plus I really liked the "everyone who plays, gets to vote on council and policies."

Well if more frequent drivers = better support then I'm all for it. As is problems seem to persist for longer periods on AMD cards, or touted features and OS support are unceremoniously dropped.

Uh man, Nvidia has had an on-going TDR problem for almost 3 years now with no sight on end for a fix, it's one of the reasons I dumped them.

Can't really say I'm anymore excited than before, if anything the entire thing looks kinda meh, especially with the on-going non-descriptive text selections.

Does anyone know if Valve has mentioned lately what their active account number has reached? They went from 75 million in January 2014 to 100 million the following September to 125 million in February of this year... If that kind of growth has even kept steady (more likely to have increased pace, IMO), we'd be at least 150 million by now. This jump in concurrent logins could just be a coincidental blip in the bigger picture of that keeping up with how big the overall user base is becoming.

No idea, but considering the number of titles now getting proper localization and are on steam it shouldn't be a surprise that the number of active and concurrent accounts is going up. Especially considering how dense the PC market is in China and the growth in other asian countries.

Youtube and other sites can't survive if no one is paying them to place advertising. Now do I think it is their own fault for pushing the limits of acceptable advertising? Yes, but that doesn't change the fact that these are businesses, not charities.

They dug their own grave the second they decided to allow ads that would execute remote code, or install malare and so on. That's the reason why there's been a booming increase in people using ad blocking software. I'll be you ask the majority of people if they'd allow ads, and they'd say "sure but...x time I got ransomware" or something else is the reason I block all ads now.

If they want people not to use ad blocks, they need to take the responsibility themselves to vet people selling ads on their network, or offer restitution to viewers who've had malware installed and had a serious loss of data or require a reinstall because of their fuckup.

I recall a lot of praising this title upon launch, but I'm pretty sure it's not my style... Nice to see their improving it, but jacking the price back up kind of turns me off...

If you like turn based pause in you RPG you'll enjoy this without a doubt. But considering they've been telling people for the last month and a half, that if you want to buy it cheap before the EE comes out and they raise the price to do it now.

edit: The dev's have said you can still buy the non-EE version on Humblebundle

I have yet to finish it, when I play my horror games I like to play at night. Haven't had a chance to do that in 6 months. Amazing game though.

Not sure what you're expecting. When was the last time a BGS game didn't get raving reviews and tons of GotY awards?

There's always a first time. Every time I see the trailers I get more twitchy that it's going to be a steaming pile of shit because the console users want an interactive movie instead of a game.

This game is sure to have some amazing day one review scores!

I'll be waiting to see what comes up on opencritic, especially with the BS going on with metacritic these days.
