Maybe they're testing to see how much legendary drops it'll take in order to see an upswing in live numbers?

I was one of those who hit a snag with the end of the Prague scene. The worst part is is that the save point is set to the prelog mission so you have to do the final battle in Dubai and then sit through a long and mostly boring video which is unskippable to see if their suggestions worked.

Fortunately, I just had to put my client in windowed mode and it squeaked by.

Not too shabby. Could tweak it more for some gains.

Steam forums are usually the battle ground between the worst part of PCMR and console folk when it's a port. Nobody really wins and you might come out of it with brain trauma.

My unpacking timed out.

I wonder if I can use this excuse when I move.

Reviews say the gameplay is good, but the ending is bad. But I've also seen folks say it takes 20+ hours to get to the end, so 20 hours of good DX is good for me, even if the ending is subpar.



I haven't read any reviews since I am more or less going in to it blind but is it a rushed story telling kind bad or cliffhanger kind of bad?

And here I thought Bethesda was doing a fantastic job at releasing shitty over-priced DLC. Half of that garbage can probably be done with a trainer if you were really desperate to ruin the experience.

I'll just wait for individual sales of the story missions for 5 - 10$ if they're on the level of The Missing Link.

I absolutely love chambered cases where the PSU is separated from the rest of the case but am not big on panel windows so I might have to go to a H440 which is $80 off at Newegg + a 5% promo. NZXT and Phanteks make some great looking cases and are typically in the same ball park in terms of pricing and build quality.

Can it handle the massive length of modern GPUs?

I probably shouldn't have called it a shitty case because it has served me incredibly well over the years and is in a class of its own when it comes to silence.

The P182 and possibly the generations which come after it all have exceptional space when it comes to the length of the GPU and the height of the CPU heatsink. The 290x is 293mm long and it still fits even with the drive bay in place. Take it out and you have another six or seven inches of clearance to soak in all that fresh air.

It's definitely something which has spoiled me and left me a little ignorant towards. When shopping for a new case, I always forgot that dimensions matter and some cases simply have to be written off entirely regardless of how nice they are because you're 5mm too high or long.

What's this going to do for PSU requirements? If someone is using a low power card, will they still be required to get a 500W+ PSU just because PCIe 4 motherboard requires it? That's what it appears to do. Is there a option in the spec to drop to 75w or less?

It shouldn't do anything. It just means that the slot can power up to 300 watts if needed before the card requires extra power through pin connections.

I have that case, I've no desire to get a new one since my temps are all low despite the case fans being on low. I rarely hear the GPU fan go up a gear and CPU fan never does. Guess it depends some on what fans you're using with it, and I think I reversed the top fan to be exhaust. I only have a little SSD drive in the upper HDD cage, I figured the potential to block the intake fan was the main potential weakness of the design.

I have mine configured the same way with the exception of a 120mm low-speed fan occupying the area where optic drives would go which feeds right in to the heatsink whereas the other 120mm intake below it is likely being drawn right in to the graphics card and then expelled through the heatsink or possibly not at all since one of the rear fans might be sucking it out first.

When I haul off the side panel, temperatures drop by 10 - 12c which was never an issue with my old 280 and hotter overclocked FX6300. I could try and reverse some of my fans for positive pressure but without the extra dust filters it makes me cautious so I'll likely buy a cheap NZXT Source 210 or order a new batch of performance fans since I just realized I am running Enermax TB Silents.

The legends are true about the 290x. I can tell when it's working hard because my feet get noticeably warmer and all other components usually take a 5-10*c bump when it's taxed along with being what I am sure is incredibly loud to some.

This is more to do with a real shitty case when it comes to airflow though. My nearly 10 year old Antec P182 isn't built for it.

Minor tweaks on the surface but I doubt they can add anything to the game that would give it more substance. The rick and morty mods seem like a natural fit, too bad they'll get shut down.

Anything Rick and Morty is a natural fit.

Hey guys, guess who has Lyme Disease.

Damn, man. They start you on meds?


Heavy barrage of full-spectrum anti-biotics for 14 days. Doc said it could get better in 'several' days but if shit still sucks after the 14th then I'm sent to my family physician for another checkup.

I don't even remember getting bit where I have the rash but I guess Lyme can lie dormant for some time before symptoms appear and it's been an absolutely insane summer for Deer Ticks.
