Maybe they'll re-release the first CoD as a remaster and bundle it inside the MW2 remaster which will be bundled in Infinite Warfare II for $79.99.

There are gameplay performance videos out there they're just not scrutinized in much the same way as a preview from a reputable third-party source while still running on limited hardware.

As for the pricing rumors, I'm on the fence. On one hand AMD is holding their prices close to their chests but on the other hand it's not a single leak but rather multiple leaks from multiple retailers which haven't retracted the figures shown as either placeholders or incorrect. They're all referencing hard data rather than word of mouth from a cousin of a developer.

It's interesting times in the CPU market. If we entertain the possibility that the prices are correct or even ballpark then I am pretty damn excited about how cheap their Ryzen 5 6/12 or 4/8 models will be along with a modest B350 board.

A nice tidbit is that European retailers are listing the 1700X 8/16 for roughly $380 USD.

That's something I'd have to see on Newegg before I believe though because that's a massive undercut as far as core-count is concerned.

Personally, I'd like to see a high-quality Vietnam-era shooter which doesn't hold back on how insanely intense the both sides were when it came to combat and cruelty.

Throw this city-slicking, fictional enemy shit out the window.

Don't make it too good though. I like waking up to new Jim Sterling videos about the shit on Steam.

I hear the sequel is even more gun pornier than the first and is great.

Good for Keanu.

The Trump administration are chaining more successful combos than a championship game of Killer Instincts at this point so I'm not going to be surprised when net neutrality tanks.

Year of the meme.

So how about that Betsy DeVos confirmation? I guess the grizzly bears should be put on high alert.

I'm pretty happy about not getting the season pass. I'll wait till Volume 2 goes on sale for the extra Baker lore but the rest sounds like typical season pass garbage to justify the price.

Late late in to the first act and through the second reminds me of FEAR and REvelations while leaning more towards the "current state" of the game where the story and monsters are beginning to show signs of a grandiose plot. The following act feels like we're back on track with the typical end location found in RE 1/2/3.

Really the only negative thing I have to say about it so far other than reusing the "turning-away over-the-face grab" a little too much.

Bought it last night and it's a real treat! There's a lot of nostalgia for those who have played the first title such as the location, atmosphere, and puzzles all while giving you a Texas Chainsaw: Body Horror Edition experience.

I'm not a big fan of where the series is but it almost feels like a spin-off. There are amazing little drops of information scattered about which call back to the first and yet you're dealing with present issues as well so it feels really good even for someone like me who gets butthurt any time someone talks about 4, 5 and 6.

I'm probably 10% done... maybe 15% with three hours of taking my sweet time and I don't have any desire to stop.

... the lip syncing is kind of really bad though and there are times where my FPS just dives to single frames for a moment then back to normal.

Even if they hit Haswell IPC which was suggested quite some time ago then that's still comfortably close to Kaby Lake. If they can offset the ~10% performance difference by keeping their products 11% cheaper then they'll be fine with anything more being way more bang for your buck.

If anything, it'll give us something to talk about in the otherwise stagnant CPU market and hopefully create a price war along the way.

When you turn yourself in to a meme and having that meme be the best way to describe the failure of the game: the game.

He basically said the same thing over and over again while Pence grew an enormous hardon when Trump said they'll eradicate Muslim extremists while Obama looked like he couldn't believe what he was hearing.

All hail Astroneer!

What's the deal with that one? I watched a let's play the other night, and it reminded me a lot of the launch of NMS (with it's shitton of resource collection). Does it get better? What do you do besides collect and attach a string of buildings (maybe the LPer I watched just sucked at it)?


Looks like the usual early-access voxel-based survival game which is the latest flavor of the month among streamers of that genre. It's also $20.

Nostalrius did a lot of good things for the vanilla crowd. They released working content which other private servers could only dream of and were able to become the most influential service until they bowed to Blizzard likely in hopes of gaining favor to bring it back as an officially-endorsed product.

They've essentially buried all the hard work they've done and ruined their name in one post. I wouldn't be surprised if they were doing this to make amends for the underhanded shit they did after Blizzard remained unmoved by the subject and are somehow still hoping for a positive outcome.
