it's like judging new york city based on Staten Island.

But it's a water-front property so it has that going for it...

Realistically how well do financial sanctions work? Couldn't you just divert money to a shell organization which then transfers it to the account of a Rusty Shackleford?

I wonder what'll happen with all those other huge Bethesda mods such as Skywind and the FO NV project being pushed on FO4...

The loot system sucked and wailing on nothing but rats gets old fast. Too bad because the ambiance and maps were off the hook. Yeah, I'll give 2 a whirl when it hits a deep discount.


The introduction of Chaos has really given this game what it needed in regards to diversity. It doesn't sound like much but I never really feel bored when it comes to carving through map after map as I did with V1 and the maps are as phenomenal as they are brutal. The loot boxes leave a little to be desired in regards to what you get but the crafting system is somewhat in place in the event that RNG is not in your favor but could be given a second pass.

All in all I'd say this is definitely worth the price of admission especially for $30 but I hope they find time to improve on the UI and details of the talents and stats which are otherwise extremely vague.

Something about GD always rubbed me the wrong way. I don't know if it's the lack of randomly generated content or how the community is fairly small but I can never play it for more than a dozen or so levels before my interests wither away even if I want to play an ARPG.

David Ogden Stiers already looked quite old back then so MFW I read that he only died yesterday at 75. Really shitty though. It's hard watching the episodes knowing half the cast is gone...

Had my eye on this for a while and looks like a lot of fun. It's only $28CAD on Steam to boot. I figure after I run out of hype with the new POE league and wander through the End Time this'll be next on my list.

The folks who are behind this have a pretty great track record for actually releasing their products rather than keep them hung up in early access for eternity.

So what if games decide they want to add in loot boxes or other in game purchases after the fact?

I don't know, watching Youtube videos with people ratting those tech support scammers is kind of addicting.

I'm pretty much okay with any kind of band waggoning so long as the product feels like a nice chunk of quality was poured in to it. There's bound to be one or two clones which go above and beyond the typical junk that's pushed out to hitch a ride.

Once news of the flaws broke, Intel "expedited its plans to deploy the mitigations and promptly briefed governments and others about the issues.

... and what a resounding success those micro code mitigations have been.

I haven't crashed yet but there are pretty hard dips in frametime from time to time which is rather jarring.

Pretty good experience so far though especially when they're following the same pricing structure on Steam. Not sure what's going on but GMG has it marked up by $15 to offset the otherwise decent 26% discount and even then it's still cheaper on Steam with their 10% discount. Some tomfoolery I rarely expect from them.

Wait, what? 24 player multiplayer? Been a while since I've played WCIII, but the most players I have tried was 3 v 3 -- and that was three humans vs three computer players. I'd be interested to see a 24 player game, can't really imagine what that would be like...

I don't know if it still uses the old battle.net infrastructure but it might only be in regards to the IRC lobby before joining a game.

Can't wait for this game. Pretty much built a new rig in anticipation of it but also to generally get fat frames...

They really don't like Kojima. Pretty sure Jim Sterling has a video up of it already which I'll give a look at.

So, are you deleting your items, your currency, and your characters at the end of each league?

I actually do this. I can't even remember the last time I stepped foot in Standard because I don't see the point. This is just how I feel though as I know standard is still pretty popular especially among mirror services and whatnot.
