The 1050 Ti basically sums up this latest Pascal and Polaris generation. Retail markup and manufacturers adding frilly bullshit to raise the base price which entirety ruins the market they are aimed at.

... but people still buy them up so maybe they're on to something.

Looks and sounds like a really good game. Curious as to how long it is since it's $20 though.

Your Zero Punctuation link goes to Mafia 3. Sadly, I cannot seem to find a ZP for BF1.

He played the system well enough to last as long as he did. If he didn't have a German tax shelter he would have disappeared after his first handful of films ages ago an all our attention would be focused on Paul W.S. Anderson as the shittiest director in Hollywood.

But has anyone bought a game they expected to love and found it to be terrible? I don't think that happens often at all these days. It's really, really hard to have that happen, especially if you're willing to wait even a week before buying.

I think anyone who bought Colonial Marines still feel the sting, myself included. I was at least expecting something which I could enjoy while being an okay game like AvP 2010 but it turned in to... well, Colonial Marines.

I definitely put on the blinders and fell in to fanboy mode for that one and changed my entire perspective when it comes to pre-ordering. I still pre-order from time to time but I do so without a heap of denial and being willfully ignorant to facts.

Back in the day, you could be the judge of the product value by playing a sample.
What was it called?
A demo... Right?

They died with Electronic Gaming Monthly.

Instead of waiting for the review, rather wait for the 75% off discount.

The thing is you can buy the Legendary Edition for 10 - $15 depending on region if you're on PC so nobody on PC should be paying full price. If you know someone who does, tell them to refund ASAP and smack them on the head.

Curious to know why they used an i3-6100T which is clocked 600 mhz slower than the non-T version. Maybe they didn't want to give the impression that an i3 really isn't shit like most think it is even though it hung in there like a champ in the non-wonky DX11 tests.

Calling the Diablo 3 team a skeleton crew is exaggerating. It's probably one guy who is on suicide watch.

Very nice of them to offer this as free for owners of all DLC. I was hesitant to buy Hearthfire, but a sale and the potential for mods to require it convinced me. It is finally paying for itself.


Wow, really? You mean I can spend $15 for the Legendary Edition of the game and I get a free upgrade? That sounds pretty darn neat!

... but what if I already own Skyrim base game and buy a Legendary Edition key? Will it give me the DLC, flag my copy as LE, and everything's fine?

I'll pick it up sometime between now and Christmas in hopes that any bugs, balance issues, and early hacks are ironed out although I know hacks never really stop.

Been real hard not wanting to pull the trigger though even with my fuck everything EA stance. Here's to hoping the rest of Deus Ex and another play through in Fallout 4 will keep me busy until Deathwing comes out and here's to double hoping it doesn't suck. Might even pick up The Old Blood to keep my trigger finger happy.

I got a free code from a promotion with my new motherboard so I gave it a go. Something about it really just doesn't do it for me and I have little to no interest in the game at all. I play for a couple hours, scratch my head, and stop.

Really liked The New Order but still haven't picked up The Old Blood even though it's usually 8 or 9$ on G2A.

Diablo 3 definitely has the best combat out of all three. The animations are nice, your actions feel responsive, and it usually sounds great. Nice and fluid but that's the Blizzard polish with a ton of money behind it.

I never really got in to Grim Dawn though. To me, the combat and movement in that game feels janky and slow even when compared to Path of Exile.

Speaking of which but Path of Exile can be really uninspiring if you go with certain builds either due to sheer repetition or minimal game play whereas others require 90+ points in the skill tree before you'll see the rewards. I personally like Cast on Crit builds if only because they're so chaotic but they require a lot more effort than your typical build.

Solid acquisition by Grinding Gear Games. Hopefully he'll be more involved in the project as a whole after they launch in China.

We're forming 5 man teams much in the same way we had two ten-man teams back in TBC and would race and troll each other. It's a blast from the past!

I'm having hard time not grabbing it but given the history of Warhammer games...

It's a little concerning that there isn't more information available when it's going to be released in November. Either they're trying to preserve a secret within the game, it'll be delayed, or are hoping for a golden double rainbow where this blackout hype meets expectations.

Warhammer has been in a pretty good spot lately though as far as quality is concerned. There's still a bunch of shitty shovelware iOS titles but as far as proper titles are concerned, it ain't bad with the exception of Eternal Crusade which seems to suffer from biting off more than it could chew.
