They should list the extended scenes on the back of the box like they're patch notes.

Just checked Wiki and they got Solar Fields back for the soundtrack. Ok, sold.

Thanks, Creston. I was really wondering how this one was shaping up.

I bet that new setting's to counter the issue people were experiencing with high refresh monitors. 1440p 144hz+ monitors were causing cards to go into a high energy setting in 2D. I forget the technical reason for why the cards were doing that, but a lot of people were setting their 2D refresh at 120hz and gaming at the higher refresh.

This may have come about as the answer to that problem.

It took me ~12 hours on Hurt Me Plenty, though with searching for secrets. Towards the end I actually just went to YouTube videos for some, as searching was no longer fun (and I missed one or two due to not being able to backtrack and was annoyed.)

Towards the end I became less a challenge completionist, too.

Keep in mind the guy in the vid's one of the more well known speed runners of older Doom games.

Ultra Nightmare (ironman mode) completed in a little over 4 hours.

He bound each weapon to a key orbiting the WASD keys... think I may try that. Only watched the beginning parts.

Yeah, I turned it off, it helps, but sometimes it's hard to know if you can do the glory kill or not and you take damage you shouldn't have taken.

Well yeah, it adds to the challenge, that's kinda the point...? Personally I like the added risk of trying to determine if it's a good opportunity to go in for the kill.. AND sometimes failing. You seem to want some perfect system that can't meet your expectations.

Edit - Pretty much agree with all of what Beamer said. I'm completely aware of how good Brutal Doom is, but I'm enjoying this new Doom immensely. It seems to capture what I used to like about id - solid shooters, and graphics that have me wanting to see what's up ahead, and unlike Brutal Doom it's all new material to enjoy.

Walking in to the foundry level with a high-contrast VA panel monitor made my eyes rather happy. The graphics aren't completely ahead of the pack like they used to be with id, but it's got a good "atmosphere"'ness to it.

Hell Ant *almost* wants to play it.. that's like a 5 1/2 out 5 stars.

You can turn off the flashing, that's the first thing I did.

You *can* one-shot enemies. In fact there's times where you have to switch away from the shotgun if you want to get health off an easy enemy. Maybe there's a little more health added to enemies for purposes of the glory kills? It hasn't really come to mind as an issue personally till thinking about it just now.

Music's solid. Completely dug it at first, but even though it doesn't seem to play the exact tracks over and over it still lacks variety. I'm only about halfway through the 4'th map though.

My only complaint about the new doom is Reznor didn't do the music.

My example was an extreme to illustrate the point. A lot of these shows are going to have viewers from both demographics, especially couples.

That's why the headline reads, "Men Are Skewing The Online Reviews of TV Shows Aimed at Women" instead of "Sabotaging". And it clearly points out that a 7.3 is still a relatively high score instead of a poor one.

Back to Serious-World: Yeah it would be a lot better if the polling was 50/50, and zero troll posts, but everyone knows it's not a perfect rating system.

My problem with articles like these is they so easily push everyone's buttons and know it (just like that one youtube poster), while there's real issues across the globe getting glossed over by all this non-issue bullshit.

If all of this was race orientated pretty much everyone would be shooting it down.

I hated the expendables, but that isn't really relevant.

For the record I haven't seen any of them (do plan to someday).

I think they're trying to push the notion that if you own an Xbox you should really get Windows 10, and if you own Windows 10, life would be great if you also had an Xbox. I've been noticing that subtle(?) slant from them since the Win10 launch.

A feminist acquaintance of mine went and saw The Expendables with her husband and hated it. If she were to give it a rating on imdb, I'm pretty sure it would have been somewhere in the 1 to 3 ballpark.

I'm totally ok with that in terms of how it relates to this system.

Average is 5.0. That's what anyone going into a 1 - 10 rating system is going to consider to be the rating for average. Most of my favorite movies, which I consider to be quite good, fall within 5.5 - 7.5. Women rated a show which was geared more towards their gender higher than men, but both gave it a higher than average rating (on average).

Yeah.

They've stated the reason they haven't done PS:T is due to how heavily modified the engine was for that game. Same for Icewind II

AMD, on the other hand, has fairly shitty utilization (i.e. if AMD were capable of writing a proper DX11 driver, they could have probably beaten nVidia in more cases) so AMD benefits a lot from a technology that uses these idle capacities (that would/should not be idle in the first place if AMD had proper DX11 drivers).

This is correct; AMD has more CPU overhead with their DX11 drivers. They have a larger delta between their DX11 and DX12 performance which sort of artificially gives them more "gain" in DX12 titles.

They still did a lot right on the hardware level for DX12 and ASYNC, but the DX11 overhead is a factor.
