Looks like another entry for the $9.99 and under sale list.

Climb more towers in gorgeous 4k!

I believe tower climbing is gone in this one, or at least it's no longer how you uncover the map (you do that by just wandering about), and you can play without climbing one. That's what people have been saying anyway.

with 8 cores/threads being the norm for consoles now, games are going to be looking for that as a minimum. the days of 4 cores being adequate for (AAA at least) gaming are coming to an end. it will be interesting to see how this game performs on i5's with decent speed, with those stated requirements.

that being said, it's hard to imagine a game not running well on a decent i5 compared to an AMD 8350.

Games really haven't made much headway in scaling beyond 4 cores, and Hyperthreading isn't 8 cores anyway. You're actually better off disabling Hyperthreading on an i7 for gaming, because most games it's actually giving you a measurable performance decrease.

Some DX12 games actually scale pretty well up to about 6 cores and do get some boost from Hyperthreading.

The MINIMUM CPU is an i7? Seriously? What the hell are they smoking? Why would an i5 not be adequate?

Um, an i5 and i7 aren't really appreciably different for gaming. If you have an i5 similar to the i7 they are asking for, you're going to be fine. System requirements have never been an exhaustive list of compatible CPUs...too many overlapping product lines, equivalent CPUs in different generations, etc.

I think reddit took so much of what NeoGaf offered.

Other than Blue's, the only places I talk about gaming are reddit, and various Discord servers I'm in. This site has its niche for me, in that its a bunch of old crusty fucks and the discussion strays a little bit beyond gaming.

Reddit really did poach a lot of the discussion on the Internet, in much the same way as Discord is taking over simultaneously for IRC and voice chats. This includes leaks. All the interesting leaks about TV, movies, and games I've read in recent history have popped up on reddit, or sometimes YouTube.

Old school forums are just too static for the modern Internet. On reddit if some subreddit gets caught up in some controversy, say, its head moderator being outed as a sexual predator. The guy can step down without having to actually do anything. The moderators below him will simply move up the list. No one has to take over paying the bills or get access to server accounts etc. If he decides to be a dick, you can just go to another subreddit using your same name and account.

Some ancient ass forum goes tits up and all the discussion gets lost and the userbase scattered.

Honestly you run into more problems updating constantly. Only update it if you run into issues.

I think the industry leaks stopped nearly a decade ago, right?
Back around 2007-2010 they seemed to be the originators of so much information, but it's been at least 5 years since I've heard them mentioned in a positive way.

I haven't heard of any big news coming out of NeoGAF in a long time. Gaming is a high turnover industry, so their insiders probably eventually ended up at companies where they had little information of value. That or they got tired of the NeoGAF circlejerk.

Like the previous article, I think AAA single-player games are on a big decline, but they will persist in indie and Kickstarter land for the forseeable future. So unless you need absolutely top notch production values, I think you'll be fine for single player gaming.

It'll consolidate. EA and Activision may bow out, and already somewhat have, but Bethesda and CDPR will keep doing it like crazy.

I dunno about "like crazy." Both studios are known for releasing a title every few years. Not exactly market saturation of AAA SP gaming...

I always love how this is literally the only site where I see anyone talk about baseball. Basically zero discussion on any of my other gaming hideouts, in stark contrast to what happens as we come up on the NFL playoffs.

The baseball strike when I was growing up just murdered my interest in the sport, same with most of my friends back then. It was a long one and after that we had already moved onto other sports. I find the sport itself is pretty boring to watch, more fun to play.

I played football and baseball in my school days and I always enjoyed baseball more. But yeah I stopped watching around the same time you did. 1994? 1995? Something like that. I watched the occasional Mariners game up until Griffey and A-Rod left in ~2000.

#1 thing the sheeple should ask themselves when horrific things occur: Who benefits?

I've benefitted from a whole lot of things in my life that I had nothing to do with. The world is full of opportunists. It doesn't mean they created every opportunity. If you want anyone to listen, you need actual evidence that holds up to scrutiny.

Amazon wants to do a lot of shit with drones without considering the laws of physics.

What law of physics prevents them from giving people a little charge to get them to the next charging station? Is it the same law of physics that prevents you from jump starting another persons car with your battery?

Probably the same law of physics that makes my battery heavy as shit?

You can get retail consumer-tier quadcopters that can carry a payload of like 50 lbs. I'm sure if you're Amazon you can probably afford ones even stronger.

Exactly what Cutter said. I wonder why some are so conservative in their fear of believing conspiracies,

It's not a "fear of believing in conspiracies." It's placing a value on reasoning and evidence over wild speculation.

Did NeoGAF even have any users left anyway? Pretty sure they banned everyone for having wrong opinions.

That place was a great example of what happens when you do extreme moderation with no checks and balances on your moderators. You just had a bunch of really angry individuals going around banning literally anyone they didn't like.

any article on hate groups that fails to mention anti-white, anti-asian, anti-christian, anti-police is not worth 10s of your time.

It probably doesn't mention them because they make up like 0.01% of the hate groups on Steam, and thus is not a problem of the same scale. The article would be mighty long if they listed every possible anti-everything group.
