Interesting that they would give him credit from BCS but not BB which is where I'm sure a lot of people were introduced to him.

Either way, I can't get enough of the pollo man so this might be the first Far Cry game I check out.

It's a tough spot. The current league in PoE is like standard with more steps so hello boring and this is easily one of the worst seasons ever for D3.

Guess I'll learn how to play guitar or speak German.

Really nice to see MrLlamaSC included in this since he's done so much for Diablo 2 over the years.

Given the extent of how quickly he's been raked over the coals and how nothing spewed forth from the current Twitch train wreck of sexual harassment one would think it's something more serious and in this day and age the most serious thing you can do is to dick around with money unless you can afford to get away with it.

I thought Synthesis was bad but this is easily the worst PoE league which I can think of. The harvest farm is a convoluted, unintuitive mess and when you're not engaging with the farm (which is typically 4 to 5 cycles) you're essentially playing standard since there's nothing extra added to the over world other than pods to pop. It's simply far too passive and feels like we're missing half of the league.

A little over one week in but it feels like I'm two months in to it.

I instantly bought it when I saw it went up. $13 for a game I already like from a developer which is still in contact with the community and creating events with the game so they've earned my respect. Wish they gave an idea as to roughly how long it'll be though

Makes me even more interested in Dying Light 2.

The Evil Within is the better series at this point, or at least the more fun series, in my opinion. Unkillable hillbillies is not a great game mechanic, RE7.

Funny you say that since I just started to play TEV and keep thinking to myself how much more I like it over RE4. It's not like a apples to apples comparison but the early levels (I'm not that far in) where you're actually roaming the country side and villas is a lot more atmospheric and intense.

Getting some Spencer old country family vibes from it. It's the right period of time which the village appears to be stuck in, various Umbrella iconography and has a castle which, coincidentally, the Spencer family lived in. The big difference being the Spencer's lived in England but this seems to take place in Romania since the currency system being used has the lei symbol.

It's also weird how the villager has your most basic standard american english accent rather than being localized (or as best as they can) like nearly every other foreign character in the franchise

I'm going to need more time and details to process how I feel about this though. Seeing a werewolf in a Resident Evil game makes me cautious that they're going to swing the pendulum too far in the opposite direction of fantasy and I hope they keep the castle to a minimum...

It's hard to imagine why they've been sitting on the Bad Company license without doing anything about it especially after BF V apparently fell far below their expectations. Would be like a twofer where you can have a fun campaign with the gang as well as a strong multiplayer experience providing they're able to tap in to what made it so good in BC2.

I always hear the same when it comes to BF 2142 in regards to the multiplayer and how it seems universally revered by fans of the franchise.

This, for me, would have been more exciting if it was BF2 but I say exciting lightly because I'd have to wonder how much they're going to fuck it like Activision did with their CoD remasters when it comes to piling on extra/more expensive transactions.

The real harvest is their implementation of the Vulkan renderer which has a bountiful yield on frame rate.

At first glance I wasn't really interested much like Blight when they introduced tower defense but then when you get in to the meat of what's coming with Harvest it's actually quite impressive. It's like a monster mash of several leagues and I look forward to the return of EQ JUGG memes.

Also, like one of my favorite streamers said, "they replaced it with grey on grey on grey with maximum rainbows".

My friends are really in to it since way back but boy is this a minefield to navigate just to get it running. I can't even get the launcher to pop up since it gives me this cryptic file error and it seems like plenty of others are having their own share of issues at various points. The subreddit and official forums are more or less being pounded by support tickets and frustration.

I wasn't that interested in trying it since I have a bunch of other games on the go but figured I'd indulge on their interests and give it a shot but *wow* this is one hell of a first impression.

Same camp of never having played SS1 so this should be interesting. It certainly has a unique look about it. My question is if the enemies in SS1 are anything like those in SS2 who were absolutely terrifying when they talked or if they're the strong silent type.

I bought it some time ago and made it up until your introduction to base building and got a strong sense of deja vu with the system used in Fallout 4. Really enjoyed it up until then but thought to myself it'd be best to wait for a more final product before I throw myself in to this game. Just that 30 minutes of gameplay though was pretty awesome so it's hard to not want to jump back in.

They're doing a great job with the development though since they're always pushing out patches which address bugs and add additional content.

I agree with everything else you said but I would still recommend an aftermarket cooler with a 3900x. I tried using stock but its loud and runs hot versus aftermarket. Getting a Noctua dropped my temps like 20 degrees at load and its barely audible relative to the Wraith Prism. If you're spending 3900x sort of bux then get the better cooler.

That's true. My friend bought an NH-U12S and likewise saw a pretty nice drop in temps but it's still great that AMD at least provides a nice looking cooler across all ranges which are functional unlike Intel.

From what I understand you have to factor in a REALLY good cooling system in to the cost of the 10900k which just blows any value out of the water. H115i and NH-D15s were what it took to keep this furnace "cool" when any kind of work was put to it.

Meanwhile you can slap on the stock cooler of a 3900x and pocket the difference. AMD also unfucked itself with now including the 4000 series support on older generation boards and the fourth generation is (allegedly) coming in with some pretty hefty gains.

The worry used to be that they wouldn’t be able to keep increasing CPU performance, but now it might be that there aren’t enough people who actually want it.

It's not that people don't want it it's that instead of actually creating more innovative products and pushing for a new node process they sat on 14nm and refined it in small increments until AMD came out blasting with Ryzen at which point their only response was... more 14nm incremental desktop refreshes at any cost until 2021 which means that they'll be using the 14nm node for seven years.

Meanwhile AMD is expected to release their second generation 7nm processors before the end of the year which is supposedly bringing some fairly substantial gains across the board while likely maintaining their competitive edge when it comes to pricing.

Okay so AMD got 3 generations out of their Ryzen motherboards where Intel usually gets 2 generations. Less impressive for AMD now, but I can certainly see why they need to revise the spec after 3 generations there are a lot of changes that you can't just address in software.

Except the reason they are using is utter nonsense and won't even allow the motherboard manufacturers to decide if they can or not. They also really, really, really screwed over the budget/no frills consumers by delaying the B550 series for something like a year (are they even out now?) which forced those consumers to buy B450 boards without a thought towards whether they would or wouldn't be supported.

All that has to be done is create a BIOS which supports a certain product range like the 3000/4000 series only and it's fixed for boards which only have 16MB of BIOS. This isn't anything new or fancy.

It's not like they had an open line of communication to board manufacturers either. When we learned about it so did they and that's just awful.

I'm surprised Australia didn't spontaneously re-combust again when they were given the title to review for their rating board. I remember they pissed and moaned about Fallout 3 about chems so Bethesda had to rename them so they weren't reflective of real drugs and initially refused classification for Kingdom Come: Deliverance while using the same "high impact" language.

If ever there was a concept for an asymmetrical shooter which could catch my attention then this would be it.

I've kept my head in the sand on this one though and didn't even participate in the trial so I guess I'll see how it pans out with the community but my greatest concern is that this genre doesn't seem to have the longest shelf life unless it gets a massive boost from the likes of Twitch and continuous support from the devs like Dead by Daylight.
