It's a shame it took Warcraft 3 Reforged to realize they shouldn't just pump and dump a remake. Hopefully they've taken notes on what worked and what to absolutely not do like rolling both clients together and just looking for an easy cash grab.

Their new approach to developing content really paid off with this league. It doesn't feel like a rushed, bug-riddled mess where they spend the next two months fixing issues.

Imagine being one of the three developers who made this game in 2018 waking up one day and they realize it went viral with the streamer community.

I accidentally fell back in to it. I was browsing without direction and the Prison Mike episode popped in to my head then it just sort of happened.

4% Average in games where the 10700k was already ahead... so iows, next to no change VS the 10700k... 11th gen looks like a meme to me already.

And somehow they'll find a way to cost more than or equal to the 10900k in spite of having two less cores and four less threads.

Kind of makes you wonder why they're even sticking with the i9 moniker. Does this mean the i7 will be six cores?

When I explain adaptive sync to some people who don't have it they generally see it as a gimmick which isn't worth having and they believe that right up until they get a monitor with adaptive sync at which point they've essentially crossed a virtual Rubicon where they just can't go back.

I don't know if I would recommend a G-Sync only panel now though since Freesync monitors which support G-Sync are often a fair bit cheaper and AMD pushing out great cards.

I was very lucky to get all the parts I needed for my friend's PC before everything went out of stock or saw drastic price gouging. Even if I waited a few days it would have been too late. It's like a perfect shit storm converged and we likely won't see a clearing for months.

The real reason prices are going up is because the value of Bitcoin has shot up so high. Looks like I was pretty lucky snagging a 3090 when I did, although it's not the preferred miner's graphics card.

You're thinking of alt currency like Etherium. Bitcoin mining has moved to ASIC machines like the Bitmain Antminer.

I've lost track (again), so this is the "4.0" update? I probably should fire it up again, all my other gaming interests have waned...

It's a new expansion with a new league. Think Conquerors of the Atlas expansion and Metamorph was the league which came with it. Their numbering scheme for expansions has no rhyme or reason so it's easy to get mixed up.

4.0 will be the PoE 2 content but that's still quite a ways out.

That list is utter crap..... shows the quality of Steam zealots.

To be fair, the selection within nearly all categories was really bad to begin with. Doom, Fallguys and Ori definitely earned it though.

Shrunk down ATX chassis to (barely) fit an ITX footprint look nice but they all seem to suffer from the same issue which is a constricted intake and GPU. It doesn't matter how wide the mesh inside is because you're fighting with two one inch gaps to pull air in and the results often favor form over function.

I had a H200 as my first ITX case and it had its own set of issues which I assume carry over to this case where you need to buy a more expensive SFF PSU otherwise it'll have a huge impact on your GPU temps since it has little room to breathe and because it's a large ITX case you also need to factor in cable extensions in order to reach certain connections. Because of the poorer airflow your CPU would often get warmer too especially if you have an open-air cooler which just dumps all the heat inside the case.

I don't know why these manufacturers shy away from a mesh front panel because that would go a loooong way in solving the issue with airflow..

I ended up moving in to a NR200 and it's been a blast. Temps are significantly lower across the board, fans are quieter and it takes up even less space on the desk.

GTFO is awesome. Unplayable without a good team using voice comms.

So, awesome if you have a team to play with, otherwise not so much.

Like any other online co-op I suppose. I'd love to play it but since I am on my way to being a crazy cat hermit with no human friends I generally try to avoid exposing myself to the cancer which is puging multiplayer gaming where open comms are pretty much mandatory. I hear there's an option to match make without comms but then I feel you're just setting yourself up to getting turbo wrecked and the devs are very firm that there will never be bots due to the game mechanics and how bots would suck at it like in Payday.

I wonder if there's a "clean hands doctrine" going on here. It was most likely pushed out because constant investor pissing and moaning about delays.
They use so much pressure and get it released, things don't go well. Investors complain and file suit.
There have to be some clauses that basically say "it's done when it's done", if not then they shouldn't be able to sue.

Is it only the investors who are to blame though? From what I heard it sounds like the CDPR board members weren't being very truthful with the state of the game when it came to being ready. It was only after the fact that they did a yellow page which explained the state of the console version and a general "we're sorry" as if to get ahead of what they'll likely get hung by their shoe strings for.

There arent many titles in the FPS genre that stand the test of time. I don't think this is one of them.

I don't know. People are still jerking each other off over Half Life 1 and 2.
