It all depends. In a number of games they do have some new content, but typically level freebies as well. I'm popping in and out of enough games with seasons/constant updates. It's not possible to hit them all, nor do I even attempt. But it's good to know the games are still being developed and hopefully improved so when I do come back there is a lot to do and then I'll get some seasonal bonuses as well. I think it's how you look at it. For more competitive people it's a new beginning in some ways. Without seasons the games would probably even more bland, consider that.

I didn't read it, but I agree.. too many seasons. It's more offputting than anything, unless the season is easy to complete. Dauntless does it right - everything you do makes progress on the season, and if you play anything more than casually you can be done with it within a week or week and a half.

Same-old, same-old...Edge ships with Windows...FF x64 DE is far better, imo. Really don't like Edge. Doesn't by any means mean that more people use and like Edge--that I simply cannot believe...;)

You just fucking did.

Define "a lot", more then 20%? More then 50%?
>They shouldn't be, Windows 10 does not work well at all in that range, but it still is. Until COVID / etc production restrictions let up, you should expect RAM chip and GPU production to be down.
Nice red herring, but not the core point you made, we're discussing you thinking 16gig for a game in 2021 as "steep" and implying a notable amount of gamers don't have that much.

16 GB of ram as the minimum for this game? That will anger some casual gamers. The 8600/1600x requirement also may do that too. These specs are a bit steep. Looks like they want to cover all their bases.
You think 16gig is 'steep', you think most 'casual' gamers have 4 or 8gig of RAM? Seriously? 2005 called and wants their RAM specs back. If you are buying bottom of the barrel pcs or laptops with 4gig RAM playing games aside from browser games isn't even a consideration, casual or otherwise.

I'll never understand salary caps in sports yet anywhere else in the private sector - and even management in sports - has no such caps beyond what a board/shareholders may set. Billy Beane proved beyond a doubt that money isn't everything in sports.

"Given the prices we charge for microtransactions, what sort of improvements have been made in Season 24... I mean, um, Diablo 3 Season 24?"
"This season we put a "24" on the graphic."
You can choose from a variety of personas and customize them with a slew of detail options during character creation.

Clearly Biden and the Dems don't care about those workers yet no one bats an eye. If it were Trump we'd never hear the end of it.

The majority of 600 have been releasing patches/improvements at the rate of a 10 man team... at best.
7 months for a few minor patches and no implemented police nor implemented subways/trains
I think it's more like a 2 man team.

I played rugby in high school as well. I like it, but like football, I'd rather watch it, or play it IRL, but sports video games do nothing for me.
