What boggles my mind is how fucking slow downloads from Microsoft's servers are. I get probably a third of the speeds I see from Steam servers.
This from the most ubiquitous software company in the world.

It is incredibly frustrating. I just want to buy a new video card. My 1060 is OK, but I'd love to upgrade...oh well. Keep waiting.
Sweeney is an active land conservationist in the state, where he has bought about 50,000 acres of forest land to keep it from being developed.

Two hucksters in this Sat Preview.
One is selling magic beans,
The Other is pulling the old take an old car, slap a new coat of paint on it and then try selling it (at full new car price) to fans of the original.
Gamers are so gullible.

This looks crazy lackluster. I don't know why but it does. I expected something greater to carry the legacy. I think Age of Mythology Extended Edition looks better than this.
It is very lackluster, at least from what they're showing here. Even with how rare they are, I'm not getting excited over an RTS that is just the same old gameplay with some slightly updated (but still pretty terrible) graphics. IMO, it's a sad state of affairs when the most popular entry in your 24-year-old series is the HD re-release of the one from 22 years ago... Talk about resting on your laurels, this fuckin' franchise must be completely covered in bed sores by now! Give me some systemic innovation, bend the genre, really wow me with some bleeding-edge visuals, SOMETHING. Thank the gods for indie developers, 'cause they're the only ones making RTS games that interest me any more.

EGS lost $$ in millions, Fortnite made $$ in BILLIONS, it is still a great business model.

What's this ! No AA free game ?!
I have expectations, you know, I demand a refund, an apology !
Uploadind a list of wished games for EGS to comply with, nothing else will do !

Well, yes, in the literal sense.
I mean, Nvidia at least is blatantly selling cards outside the PC gamer market, in addition to whatever bot buying/gray market buying of cards is going on. So the shortage is worse for our side of the market than it would be sans cryptocoins, but I guess that ship has long since sailed. :|

According to this video they used AI to upscale the textures to 4K. For a $59.99 price tag, Bioware couldn't be bothered with recreating them in 4K. You know: painstaking giving every texture the love and attention it needed. No, they went the lazy route.
