When can we start expecting sacrifices to ensure the Emperor of Mankind and the Golden Throne remains alive for the next 40 thousand years?

Nevermind - debunked

For me it's generally used for the RivatunerStatisticServer since I like to see my usage across all cores, framerate and whatnot. I don't dare touch my factory overclocked 290x out of fear that it'll burn down my house if it gets any hotter so Afterburner itself is mostly used for a custom fan curve.

But yes, good to see some clarification.

Sounds like typical internet BS.

It sounds like bullshit but in the case of Afterburner it's actually a legitimate concern since it "hooks" in to the game code in order to provide the on-screen information which can potentially trigger an anticheat system. It's such a problem that the software includes "stealth" and anti-detection measures in order to minimize that potential problem.

The thing is is that I've never known it to be a problem with big studio releases whereas I sometimes have to wrestle with it when it comes to indie multiplayer titles like 7 Days to Die which flat-out refused to work until they updated their anticheat system to be compatible with the newest version I was using.

I don't know about the rest though but if they use a similar method of obtaining information then it's possible or at least more believable than being out of town and your brother logged in.

I think it's kind of funny that they would call out illegal streaming when they produced their own ad which said piracy feeds babies.

This is the ultimate "wait for GOTY edition" discount purchase for me. I waited that long for SoM and got it for $8 so I think I can hold out for this one as well.

Was anyone even under the impression that there would be a sequel especially seeing as how it's still the top selling title?

So they either addressed the Ryzen SMT issue or don't even acknowledge it as an issue.

Dun dun dun....

It's pretty funny and sad how Jim Sterling was exactly right about this happening over two years ago. Which studio is next? BioWare? Place your bets an stay tuned!

Honestly I don't think it's that big of a deal.

Destiny 2 will only recognize the physical cores in an Ryzen processor whereas with an Intel processor it'll recognize cores and threads so I want to say this is a Bungie problem rather than a Windows problem especially when I can fire up any other game and they recognize how many cores and threads my processor has.

For folks like me who Freesync at 75hz and own modest hardware it's really a non-issue but for anyone else who has a high refresh setup they're going to be incredibly disappointed to know that their overclocked 1600s and 1700s are trailing a stock i3-7350k in a game which thrives on multicore processing at both 1080p and 1440p.

It's kind of a shit show for Ryzen/Polaris since the ultra preset has baked in nvidia gameworks too. If I ever had to put on a tinfoil hat and say it's purposely crippled because of the intel/nvidia influence then this will be it if it releases in the same state.

The 1600x equivalent makes me wonder if they fixed the SMT issues with Ryzen...

I can't think of the last Warframe they've come out with which doesn't look awful.

Mesa, maybe?

Equifax changed the password from "password" to "p@ssword". Clearly they did everything they can to shore up security. Time for a bailout.

That's giving them too much credit. The security chief probably watched Spaceballs and thought 12345 made more sense since it matches his luggage.

The European PEGI system is more or less in the same boat and says consumers should push the gambling commissions rather than the rating boards in regards to loot boxes.

In short, our approach is similar to that of ESRB (I think all rating boards do, USK in Germany as well). The main reason for this is that we cannot define what constitutes gambling. That is the responsibility of a national gambling commission. Our gambling content descriptor is given to games that simulate or teach gambling as itís done in real life in casinos, racetracks, etc. If a gambling commission would state that loot boxes are a form of gambling, then we would have to adjust our criteria to that.

News Comments > Grim Dawn: Ashes of Malmouth Released
1. Re: Grim Dawn: Ashes of Malmouth Released Oct 11, 2017, 22:36 Wallshadows
 
For as much as I love ARPGs I just never really got in to Grim Dawn. I don't know if it's the pacing, the static maps or lack of a community but even when I am in an ARPG kind of mood it's so far down the list that I get genre burn out before it's even a thought in my mind.

Glad it's doing well though.

On a more serious note, since Trudeau withdrew from the F-35 program, maybe they can redirect some of that savings toward mental health treatment.

You mean more than just listening to celebrities pat themselves on the back a couple of times a year like it's some kind of wardrobe malfunction?

You actually want something done about it?

Outrageous!

I put my foot through a scanner which decided to shit the bed RIGHT before I had to send off one of the most important documents I've ever had so I've been having one hell of a mental health kind of day ever since.
