I don't see how there can be any proper reviews of Wildlands out yet. Its going to take anyone a few good weeks of solid game play to get though all of the content and story.

There is no way I can take anyones review of this game as solid.

The press are often given advance play copies. I feel like someone can still offer a substantive opinion on a game even if they don't fully complete the story, its contextual.

Even if I agreed with you, the gameplay is dinged pretty badly in the review too and has little to do with his story beefs.

Wow, if I had bought a 1080, I would be pretty annoyed by this. The Ti seems to replace that card since it is significantly faster and a similar price? Or am I getting my facts wrong?

Why? I own a 1080 and I have no need for this currently. I don't game at 4k and its been driving my setup fine for almost a year. I don't begrudge them putting out a newer iteration, I'm used to the inevitable march of progress. Something newer is always around the corner, you have to buy for your current needs.

Dean Hall seems to be a great ideas guy who is not so good on follow through. Calling him a wanker seems pretty harsh, he just needs to hook up with someone who can rein him in whenever he goes off track into featureland.

Just couldn't keep your mouth shut, could ya?

Kind of an ironic comment considering the source, probably wouldn't be what I would've led with. Also kind of weird that you keep tabs on me but whatever floats your boat I guess.

You wouldn't understand trying to be civil and mature and taking the high road out of an argument. Out of the whole argument, out of everything that was said, you picked that to have a problem with. Inquisitive Did I not word it correctly for your tastes, o' wise one? Please, by all means, teach me the error of my ways... Movingalong

Sepharo already mentioned it but as usual you are completely unwilling to ever admit you could be handling something incorrectly and go on the offensive. Picking or continuing fights with people, calling them a bunch of names, editing their quotes after putting them on ignore then responding yet again and so on is not the high road. If you want to ignore people then just ignore them, no one cares and the posturing looks silly.

You can get in a bunch of insults or whatever now, I just wanted to clarify since it seemed like you weren't understanding despite saying you did. I won't follow up further to this topic as its just going to descend further.

The attach rate on Zelda is going to be absolutely insane, like Halo numbers.

I checked out Zelda at a buddys place and its one of the coolest games I've ever played. Most of the people here are just going off random reddit posts and acting like they are gospel for all owners.

The Switch is really underpowered compared to a gaming PC...and no one really cares apparently. Gameplay trumps all, look at Zelda. I like a lot of the franchises on Nintendo consoles so I'll probably pick one up, using my adult wallet and everything.

They made one of the largest disappointments in gaming history so I doubt I will be checking out their follow up. I don't feel like they've adequately delivered on the initial promises, let alone earned a reprieve on a sequel. Big meh.

Sean Murray lied his ass off about NMS too so whatever they say about this game, expect the opposite.

I swore I clicked on Mass Effect. God this place is depressing lately, maybe I will have to join the calls for more active moderation.

I have had numerous IPS and VA panels over the years and they have their pros and cons.

Contrary to what you are saying VA definitely has better image quality. It has better contrast (black is black) and better colors.
IPS displays very often times suffer from IPS glow, ghosting, backlight bleeding and comparatively poor contrast and colors but they usually have better response times in ms (less latency).


VA viewing angles are objectively worse which matters hugely for TVs and less so for monitors. Contrast is definitely better with VA but that's only apparent in dark rooms, most people have their main TV in brightly lit rooms which nullifies the advantage. For computer monitors its a different story obviously. IPS ghosting is largely a problem of the past outside of low end models, glow on the other hand can be annoying.

I've never really had a VA monitor I was happy with over the long term but there have been a few TVs I really liked. I'm simplifying of course, there's so many factors involved. For example I will pay a happy premium for the Sony OLED over LG just to have the superior Sony picturing processing engine even if the underlying tech is essentially the same.

The gaming performance issues I'm seeing across all reviews are frankly disappointing. It seems like they're still not close enough on IPC. I have an Intel platform already and this isn't enough to make me upgrade, I guess I'll see how optimization comes along over the next few years.

If you like story driven RPG's with a lot of reading, buy the game.

If you like action heavy RPG's with tons of combat, and don't like reading, skip it.


Pretty much. We know why Cutter keeps slagging off this sort of RPG

It's a shame this kind of crap just interferes with adoption of new tech. VR will never get off the ground with this kind of nonsense going on.

Then I am remarkably broken. It's going to be ok because death happens. But you have a choice who you work for.

Yeah no one is buying that bullshit now. He didn't work for a dictator or lobby for corporations. He was fighting for the beliefs and rights you claim are important and he had the courage to do it on FOX. You plainly got caught off guard and made a distasteful comment without even knowing the context. Next time be an adult, admit your mistake and move on. Sheesh.

Am I alone in hating Samsung's Edge phones? It seems so with how popular they are, though I can't understand why anyone would want a warped image and a greater frequency of accidental touches.

Even if they brought back the normal non-edge versions, after having a Pixel XL, I don't think I could ever own another phone that isn't stock android. Touchwiz is junk and Samsung's unremovable and undisablable (is that a new word?) bloat is no longer acceptable.

Touchwiz is trash and Samsung can't make a decent phone to save their life. The only reason I bothered with some of their stuff was SD card support.

When a fox "no-news" talking head dies i just don't feel sad. I must be broken on the inside. sniff

Alan Colmes was involved in several charities and generally argued for left-leaning issues on FOX. It is remarkably distasteful to spit on his grave over a misconception but to double down on it after being corrected is just immature.
