Looking back at this video is a somewhat unsettling experience. Four years and he went from being optimistic to being one more victim of stupid fucking cancer.

If anything I hope his death will be the push some folks need in order to be vigilant about their health rather than dismissing abnormalities until it's too late.

Even for BF... even for CoD... that was a really messy, chaotic trailer.

MFW this game retails for $120 though since it apparently won't come with loot boxes or DLC. There's no way EA will let those slide without some kind of huge catch.

So far all signs are pointing to being a much better, more complete product. Anything less would be heresy.

I'm already tired of going back to WW2 and we're not even that far in to it yet.

Maybe they'll do the History Channel's The Great Martian War. Anything.

I get the impression that there were financial woes over at GGG since they were really, really, really cranking out MTX armors these last few months. I mean, they only have one person working on the game engine so I can see how this can help bring staff and create improvements where it's sorely needed which was likely a big reason Chris made this decision.

In any case, I feel two ways about this.

The first being I'm not that worried Tencent will take control of PoE since they also have large stakes in other companies and haven't run them in to the ground. They seem to be more interested about what they can do in China.

The second being that I don't see GGG as the David vs Goliath, indie vs big studio success story any more now that they're essentially a part of a big studio. It also makes supporter packs and MTXs feel less meaningful now since we're no longer directly supporting a small indie studio.

I'm cautiously optimistic since it would be great to see what GGG can do with these changes but there is a degree of concern to see how this shakes out over time. They already have glorified loot boxes so it's not like we can shit on Tencent for that.

Here's hoping The Expanse can be picked up too. If there was any reason to give a shit about SyFy it's surely gone now.

I feel shitty but I'd like to think that his work in The Cosby Show and Fat Albert shouldn't be dismissed because he turned in to what he is today. It's no longer coming from Cliff Huxtable incarnate and is hypocritical, sure, but there's still meaning to what he said and expressed which should be taken to heart.

Not the drinky drinky rapey rapey parts but the fatherly figure parts.

Be gentle.

Bear with me when I say it'd be interesting if they crossed battle royale with a vastly more enjoyable version of Biohazard Umbrella Corps where you're against each other but within the open world of StarCraft where environment and NPCs actually matter.

It'd be better if it were a storied FPS set in SC but their focus is on dump trucks full of money since they're not willing to add a battle royale mode to Overwatch.

It's going to get even more spicy with 7nm Ryzen 2 next year. Hell, it'll be interesting to see if they're holding back on a consumer 2800X flagship or if that'll just be rolled in to the new 12nm Threadripper.

Maybe it'll be centered around Vietnam and everyone turns in to Jacob's Ladder monsters and locations.

Why even bother continuing the series name if they're getting rid of what makes the franchise identifiable as such?

I am leery of a game that is overly concerned or focused on violence and nudity.

I mean.... the game does take place in hell... sadistic torment and deviant debauchery kind of goes without saying.

It's something like $239 cheaper than what I paid for my 8700k + Z370 motherboard to get a 2600x + X470 board.

Pretty impressive especially if with the uplift in performance even if only small.

Save your money and wait for when gpu's and ram come back down in price from the ridiculous levels they are at now. 1180ti should be out by then

Unfortunately it seems as though Cryptos were back on the rise (or at least were yesterday) so we may see another drought with marked up cards. Not to mention the fact that next-gen cards will likely fetch a 20% premium right out the gate.

It's not over yet.

Same can be said about the Travis Walton UFO incident which the movie Fire in the Sky is based off of. While I love the story and the movie it was pretty much debunked by a member of the UFO community since Travis was using countermeasures, the discrepancies with the crew as well as another test which exposed a tremendous amount of bullshit deception which got buried.

Leave the polygraph to Maury Povich trying to find daddies.

to be honest, I thought the Unity demo looked fine. I'm more interested in capturing the feel of the original rather than see them spend too much time on graphics detail.

anyhoo, good to see them back on track.

The unity demo worked because it gave the game a certain sense of gritty, creative, and unrefined appeal which is reminiscent of the original. When they transferred it over to the Unreal engine it looked too clean, too generic and too modern.

It's a shame that they're sticking with the Unreal Engine since that was one of the most glaring concerns but hopefully they won't go so far as to change the layout of the game or alter designs as was the case prior to the hiatus for the "benefit" of newer players.
