Building a Detonate Dead Inquisitor. Gives me pretty strong nostalgia to my old Diablo 2 Amp + Corpse Explosion Necromancer. Once you drop Desecrate you're pretty much riding that meaty gore train to town especially with the Abyss mechanic where you can just chain it through the tear.

I think Intel is doing this so they have headroom to introduce “faster processors” by simply putting better TIM in.

That's the kind of benefit of a doubt I'd give them if we were still on Ivy Bridge processors but here we are six generations later and they use it exclusively from budget to HEDT. It's just Intel being shitty much like how they were in regards to their processors until Ryzen released and put a fire under their ass to actually do something other than refresh their series with single-digit performance increases.

Three movies wouldn't be enough to even scratch the old republic since it's spread across something like 25 thousand years so I'm not that upset even though I'd love to see it get re-incorporated in to the official canon.

As of now I think the Mandalorians are the only thing which are canon from that era and only barely.

Never shopped at their retail outlets but if it was anything like their online platform then I'm not that upset. Awful pricing and dodgy "free" shipping deals put them waaaaay down my list when it came to shopping for components.

What's hilarious is how their sister site, DirectCanada, was better in nearly every way while still using the NCIX infrastructure from warehouse to payment processing to shipping.

Even if they cleaned up this mess they're still sitting at a 72% metacritic score which is pretty damning for a triiiiple AAAAAA title. The user scores are typical but I don't think I've ever seen it go below 1 for any other game.

Another record, maybe?

I think it's pretty ridiculous how the police expect someone to fully comply with their orders and act cool while there's a dog chomping down on their leg. Once the person goes down wouldn't it be in the best interest of everyone to have it let go and use other measures for compliance since the threat of escape is neutralized?

That's 2 countries. The ball is rolling, slowly. I can't wait until countries declare it gambling and it has to stop. The cries of anguish from shitbag publishers will be incredible. It will be the only sound heard around the world.

I'm fairly certain the Netherlands are investigating it as well.

Great job at painting a target on your project for a cease and desist letter from Konami.

Just create it in private and be like "whoops, hackers released it" when it's ready.

Jumped in to PoE but it's not the super-crazy Mayhem event so I might give this a whirl for the week until then. Turmoil is okay and got my guy to 70 but am not happy with the outcome of my character and don't feel like rerolling.

looks legit, those AMD CPU's have what? 40% less IPC then sandy bridge era CPU's yet, are still recommended over those, yeah right.

I really wouldn't read too much in to Frostbite system specs or box specs in general.

It'll be interesting when the B and H series boards release for Coffee Lake. The i5-8400 is just too much of a bargain in general even when factoring in the premium costs of a Z series board so imagine how much more appealing it'll be when you can cut back another $30-$40 without having to pay the Ryzen RAM tax.

I mean, in theory anyway. Coffee Lake stock is pretty dismal.

If Zen+ is only going to provide single-digit boosts to IPC and clock speed then they might have to make another round of price adjustments to look more appealing until they can refine and shrink to 7nm with Zen 2.

I need a panel of developers to explain to me how Anduin went from a naive, uncertain boy king to God emperor in such little time. His father rallied him when he picked up Shalamayne but jesus christ dude shows up in a mountain of literal plot armor and is now a bonafide Paladin taking on Sylvanas.

Reminds me of how Yrel went from a student of Velen mining rocks as a slave to High Exarch of the light in like a month.

Nvidia is pulling some weird shit strings with this product which would make me want to get the Vega 56 out of principle. Should have just dropped the price of the 1070 by $50 instead but it's not like Nvidia has anything better to do until next year.
