Our goal is to take all we’ve learned and push forward. We know that’s a tall order

It'll be interesting to see how many retail versions and promotions there will be as well as how they handle DLC.

We should start taking bets.

News Comments > Evening Patches

It only took seven months but now you can finally play an advertised part of the game right after the six month subscription-lock promotion finished.

Paired with a reduction to character services player likely would not have used by 30% with extra emphasis on using them for Kul'Tiran or Zandalari races. Makes tokens look more appealing which charge $5 more than a subscription. Token prices are going up due to increased demand.

Blizzard at their next quarterly says they've made a lot of extra money and begin teasing their next big attraction which'll likely be the Bee mount in order to further weather the BfA storm for their investors.

ActiBlizz could have offered classic WoW on a Guild Wars 2 base - pay once, play forever to make new people interested in WoW. But Greedtick of course does not want this.

Have not touched WoW and never will because of the monthly fees. And with ActiBlizz in trouble but not changing its ways... Well, good luck!

Apples to oranges in this case.

It's still an MMO and even though a source of income through subscriptions is becoming more and more archaic it's what Classic will exclusively rely on in order to maintain the infrastructure while being rolled in to the base subscription of Warcraft. A continuous cost which will require a continuous stream of subscription-based income whereas GW2 was built from the ground up to be a "fremium" game.

So far they've shown a great deal of respect in regards to how they're going to bring back the classic experience so I REALLY doubt we're going to see character services and transactions introduced.

I keep wanting to play this. It's installed and ready to go, but every time I think I'm going to, I look at how much is in this game, and I just feel overwhelmed at the thought of having to learn all of it.

Actually, 3.5 really cleaned up the end game and crafting to be a more streamlined process on top of the changes made along the way to be a little more user friendly. The passive tree is still pretty intimidating and builds can be difficult if you go in fully blind to outside sources which are designed to help new players such as those who recommend new player-friendly builds but it's still a gradual process for the most part and is fairly intuitive when it comes to what does and doesn't work.

The end game isn't just a case of strictly grinding the atlas either. Delve and the syndicate (assuming the syndicate are introduced) start very early and represent a large chunk of the end game components which allows you to familiarize yourself in regards to what you can expect.

If there's a play style you have in mind then just focus on that and the rest of the information will simply come to you as you play. Find a nice clan too as they can be an incredible resource.

Checked out a couple of the performance tests and there seem to be some discrepancies in regards to 1440p.

In the TechPowerUp review it shows a GTX 1080 and a 4.8Ghz 8700k achieve 67.5 average FPS on ultra whereas in TweakTown they have a GTX 1080 and a 5ghz 8700k on medium which averages out at 65fps.

Meanwhile, 1440p ultra was tested over at Guru3D and they found that on their GTX 1080 with a 9900K the game averages 45fps... I think?

This won't even touch the people who need to be retired. It's great that Activision is feeling the heat but it's not like they'll learn anything. They'll just pad out their golden parachutes and push new ways to exploit the players.

I wouldn't count on that. PC gamers are rather consistent with voting with their wallet.

Untie it from their own servers and enabling mod support would be a great start. What's one more Bethesda title modders have to fix.

AMD is far and away the better value always. Right now the cheapest Nvidia 8GB card on Canada Computers is a GTX 1070 $470CDN. Cheapest AMD 8GB card is an RX580 @ $300CDN.

They're falling even lower than that. Right now on Amazon there's a Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 580 8GB for $270. A couple of days ago there was one from XFX for $255.

If any Canadians want chunky deals you should absolutely subscribe to /r/buildapcsales .

It's TSMC 16nm vs 7nm and somehow 7nm is...way louder and more power hungry.

AMD has a habit of overvolting their cards. The R7 can be undervolted to become more efficient than the 2080.

The R7 also supports DLSS-like upscaling through DirectML.

theglaze wrote on Feb 7, 2019, 12:20:
Vega 64 comes at a $500 MSRP, making the Radeon VII 40% more expensive but it's only 23% faster. That’s even worse than RTX boards. The only saving grace here is that AMD hasn’t tried to sell us on a technology that won’t deliver, while effectively scamming customers with a month long pre-order period… gotta look on the bright side guys.

Ouch

Because it's AMD they can do no wrong.

Never before in the history of mankind has a license been so thoroughly fucking WASTED as when Disney gave you stupid idiots the Star Wars license.

I'd say Warhammer gives it a good run but for the opposite reason. Games Workshop hands out their license to anyone who asks for it and, at best, will see one or two games a year get a positive return stacked against a mountain which don't.

EA may eventually lose the license but I fear Games Workshop will never learn their lesson when it comes to quantity over quality.

I'd like to see Netflix pick up the rights to Army of Darkness since STARS canned the Ash vs. Evil Dead series but I don't know if AoD is still in a weird place in regards to who owns the rights to it.

I just miss me some Ashy Slashy.

It's so good.

The best part is hanging out on the lower floor of the Police lobby. Got chill music going and was more or less a safe space to go afk in the original and write on the foru...

thump thump thump THUMP

I put my current rig together less than a year ago hoping I could exceed the recommended specs but it was apparently an exercise in futility since I'll be lucky to hit that for 1440p.

What's the point of leveling scaling if you don't have the perks or the weapons though? Someone who is actually level 75 with a TSE weapon is going to pose a monumental threat to a scaled up level 4 player who is fresh in to the forest subzone with their shit pipe revolver and 11 bullets.

Even with players marked on the map it's going to nullify everything except long-range grieving and that still doesn't take nukes in to question.

This is like willingly putting a stick through your front spokes while riding a bike.

A bit high for recycled plot/chars, using a newer engine that they already have used in other games.

Don't be fooled, this isn't your average remake or even REmake which changed up and added several new things. There's a lot changed and added under the hood which further explores the story while maintaining the spirit of RE2.

You can also find coupons on GMG which take off about 20% depending on what their sale is. I broke a cardinal rule and pre-ordered the deluxe edition (my first DE in a long time mind you) when it was 26% off which brought it back to what us Canadians used to pay for digital copies before shit skyrocketed.
