It's not in a jungle so it's already more interesting to me than Heart of Thorns.

In my neck of the woods, Bell Aliant charges ~$94/month for their "ultra high speed" 7/.5 line whereas if I lived about 100 meters up the road I would have access to their FibreOP 150/50 line for the same price. If someone has netflix on the go it pretty much cripples the network beyond browsing even if it's not in HD.

"please keep updating your search to see if it's available. It should be a couple more months" has basically been the carrot they've been dangling now for the past couple of years.

At this point I'm just about ready to jump on board City Wide for a 20/2 line for close to $40 less even though I hear it's wildly hit or miss in regards to the support and service you receive but it's a risk I'm willing to take.

I hate box specs because 99% of the time they're not even mentioning what is considered a minimum or recommended environment. It's just an arbitrary point of reference without explaining what it is.

Having the R5 1600x be the equivalent to the i5-2400 is pretty funny though.

Because opening Steam and looking at the dev team of it is really hard to do?

Sometimes I like to engage with the community I am a part of even if the answer is easily attainable.

I am literally worse than Hitler.

Seeing as how wildly successful PUBG has become I can see why the developer would want to introduce loot crates in spite of what he's said since that's a lot of potential cash left on the table. I also suspect that PUBG will pull an ARK and double the cost of the game when, if ever, it gets a retail release.

It's a shitty thing to do, to be sure, but if I were in his shoes I'd probably do the same thing since I like money.

A NIC worthy cpu without integrated GPU, AMD, why do you always give me reasons not to buy your stuff?

I'm guessing they're doing it to both cut costs as well as to promote their APU range. Actually, aside from their APUs have they ever released a stand-alone desktop processor which has an igpu like Intel does with all their processors?

Seems like there's a certain kind of stupidity when it comes to developing and advertising a product which is knowingly considered illegal and then being surprised when you're hit with a C&D letter.

Warmane.com makes millions a year, has TBC, WotLK, Cataclysm, and MoP servers, and 30,000+ online at all times. Has gone unchallenged for years

From my understanding, Warmane likely uses the C&D requests as toilet paper since they're located in Russia.

Holy shit does that Thor movie look unbelievably bad.

To be fair there are plenty of things which are unbelievably bad but comic book movies aren't one of them.

They're a marketable form of cancer.

It's funny because I was just thinking about reinstalling this game earlier today and do a fresh playthrough but actually got back in to 7 Days to Die since I heard the developers introduced electricity.

The wait for the Path of Exile expansion is really hard so anything I can do to pass the spare time is welcomed. Maybe I'll resub to Eve or...

I'm a firm believer that GoT will end with it flashing to Sam being like 90 years old finishing his book called A Song of Fire and Ice ever since that thing from the intro was shown in the Great Library. Even in the last episode when he told the dude his book title sounds like shit and dude was like "we're not poets" I thought to myself Sam would be the one who would go against that grain.

My friend hates the idea.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Would this make them heretics in the eyes of the Emperor?

I literally hit level 70 maybe 30 minutes ago after being power leveled in about 15 minutes and I already have the full Rathma set. Four pieces from the "congrats on playing the bare minimum of the game" gift and the other two from Kadala thanks to getting 300 free blood stones from the challenge rift to gamble with.

Next season they may as well should give you the entire seasonal set for logging in.

I think it's a fantastic economy and bartering is a far more meaningful form of trading especially when it comes to ARPGs which are loot-driven. Granted, trading in general could use an overhaul in PoE where they don't rely on third party services to act as a pseudo auction house but I still prefer it over the MMO-inspired BOP-everything-except-those-in-your-party-for-two-hours system which has infected Diablo 3.

Once you become accustomed to the system and the value of items it's really not that much different to traditional currencies. It just takes some commitment to understand the meta items, tier rolls, crafting slots and item level. You can even trivialize some of this by using strict item filters.

That and it feels good knowing GGG aren't assuming we're all hacking dupers who spend all our money on the dangerously evil black market like Blizzard seems to believe.

Is it all still for free?

I really need to give this a try, but the ludicrously large skill tree and possible combinations kind of turn me off. I should find a cool, fun build to play and just play that, I think.

100% free.
