Ehhhh from my position, it'd be more like a boat trip to Portland, Maine.

The single biggest thing this game needs is a physics engine. Killing is simply not fun enough. Is that a planned feature?

Maybe if they ever get around to optimizing the game. As it stands, I usually hit 30% usage on both processor and GPU while seeing my frame rate dip in to single digits when heavy action. Adding physics to that mix would probably have the same effect as pouring cement in to my machine.

I suspect that at some point they might just throw in the towel and rebuild the game. They have a goal to hit 10 acts so maybe by the time they're satisfying with where they are, they'll just put it back together as an HD or anniversary edition.

Hell, even if they charged for it, I'd buy it.

Pretty damn excited about this and look forward to the buffed melee system though I'm still undecided between Viper Strike and Ethereal Knives. The Rigvald armor rewards look a lot better than the Seraph set too.

That's a pretty legit deal. Unfortunately, it looks to be only for those in the States going off of the billing info requirement. $258 USD comes to $352 CDN and $405 after taxes. If they did ship to Canada, it would likely get hit with a customs Category 5 5% tax and whatever they would charge for shipping.

All the sudden, I'd be pushing $450 and, at that point, I'd just bite the bullet and spend another $50 to get either of the boards I mentioned below from a Canadian e-tailer.

I hate our dollar.

I'd love to know where you're pulling those prices from but I suspect it could be due to how fucking bad the Canadian dollar is right now if you're shopping state-side. The cheapest 4690k I can find is ~305$ with a $27 savings on directcanada and even a 'modest' board like an ASRock H97M Pro or MSI B85-G43 Gaming are $120 on amazon and newegg.

Throw in tax and shipping and all the sudden we're hitting close to $500 and that's not much higher than some of the bundles that float around from time to time at ncix.com.

The only thing that kept me from going the Intel route with my latest upgrade is the fact that an unlocked i5 Haswell costs more than a decent AM3+ board and FX-8350 combined.

Zen better damn-well live up to the numbers and assurances which AMD is throwing around. Christ knows it's long over-due and anything less will make it a colossal failure.

Why is there no news on the Space Hulk shooter? Why?

Right?!?

The potential in that title is huge but has been in radio silence since E3/Gamescom. A squad-based, co-op story in the 40k universe with one of the best chapters and all their Terminator armor goodness is just too good to pass up even if it's as 'basic' as Vermintide in spaaaace.

In the mean time, enjoy all this shovelware.

I'd do it for 500M iskies then I could afford an Orca and use it for absolutely nothing because I am a solo pilot still in the starter corp even after seven or eight years.

For someone like me, the initial price of entry for Overwatch is enough to turn me away because my curiosity isn't worth the price they're asking. This is why I'd be much more interested in Paladins if I were to try out a team arena title.

Curious to see what they'll enhance visually. The game already looks pretty damn good even without maxed settings.
