Turn based 4x WH40k strategy game. Awesome, I love everything WH40k. I hope they take their time and release a well polished title. The Arpg WH40k title is looking good also. Now we need a Total War 40k game!

As much as I'd love a W40k game, there is ZERO way that GW will ever allow that nor that Total War format would be a good fit, given how TW games were always about 1 campaign map, and W40k really would need space travel.

Who says the campaign map can't have planets and space instead of continents and water?

Mainly that I wouldn't want a WH40k total war without space combat, and that is something GW will never allow. ^^

Be sure to grab the nvidia drivers... seemed to make a huge difference for me (unlike the Benchmark, without drivers on my 1070 I would get 12 fps less than I do now, strange. Still not getting to 60 at 1440p on MAX though

It's funny... I don't know if it's because I'm used to the console version, but I maxed out my settings (1080p) and used 150% resolution, and I'm actually okay with the 40-55 FPS I'm getting. The tradeoff from 60 for the significant bump in resolution the oversampling gives is actually worth it to me. (especially how it helps the distant and building textures)

I love the terrain fx from nvidia, but it's a shame that the terrain it affects becomes static, where as they moved when they were default effects and you run through them. (talking about the brown dried grass)

I think I may actually buy this and replay the game. Still never did do the final two DLCs for my original copy.

I just wish you could take ansel photos with the antialiasing on. It seems to shut down everytime you go into it (like the demo did.)

Also, was anyone able to turn on VXAO? was disabled on mine.

Nope, VXAO disabled here as well. Ansel is really only supposed to be used for high res upscale screenshots, no point in AA there since you get it for "free" in post editing anyway by downrezzing the image in photoshop. Just crank up the resolution to whatever your GPU supports and downsample in post, image quality you get from this is superior to ANY AA solution.

A grand to attend an event for a p2w game? Lol!

The game is actually a lot less p2w than others of the pack. It's mostly just insanely grindy.

I have to say, I always thought you'd have to be a bit crazy to be an Uber driver. Despite the fact I know someone who I consider very reasonable and stable having done it because he enjoyed interacting with people he didn't previously know. Isn't the pay equivalent to a minimum wage job at best, except rare situations?

Well crazy or not, it baffles me as well. Pay is shit, danger is trough the roof and then you get problems like the vid... It's imo only worth it if you just wanna spend some time driving people around, with all the dangers that entails in the US

At least here in Germany Uber has to pay proper wages and taxes, and thus the fare is comparable to taxis in every way.

It's almost as if the vast majority of them were pump & dump schemes

On the other hand, it's really easy to look up the risk classification of a IPO. It's really more a sign of the times of cheap money that you see these problems popping up, usually a prelude to some form of economic crisis.
I think they're referring to the bitcoin ICO's (intial coin offering) and not legitimate ipo's.

Oh my, you are right

Again proving that Source engine is nearly damn near unworkable for unskilled indy developers. The engine and workflow are such a mess that it's easier to bring it already done stuff from other games than make your own (levels, in particular) BSP map building should NOT be a thing in 2018

Dropbox, trying desperately to keep it's name in the news because of upcoming ipo.

I like how that policy they announced also rules it out for any backup needs

we closed the accounts of certain Basic users who had not engaged in any activity on the Dropbox platform in the last year and did not respond to multiple e-mail inquiries

Hands up, who here would respond to an email from dropbox, assuming it isn't auto flagged as spam? ;p

i'd attribute this more to the last two days being nothing but bobsledding and curling, and endless documentaries about shit that happened at olympics from like 40 years ago. the one thing i wanted to watch, the figure skating gala (don't judge me) nbc only played 10 minutes of.

i guess what i'm saying here is fuck nbc. oh well! at least they only have exclusive broadcast rights until 2036.

For sure didn't help that most of the events happened in god awful time windows for us normal non US/SK people. Watching Germany vs Russia final (and what a heart clincher that was) at 4am is not something I plan to ever repeat.

It's why I plan to 100% skip the China games where this will be much much worse ~.~

That they gave him a gun just boggles the mind.
The fact that he also accepted it is really telling.

That he is a corporate shill and greedy money bag was obvious before...

It wasn't Nier enough for an award, it had to be NierR...


=-Rigs-=

Hahahaa

But really, it shows how much effort they put into these awards. If they don't even get the game name right

No mention of dynamic range in the article... The samples didn't look so good compared to existing cameras like the A7sII. I guess the article is really saying that the numbers are ridiculous as opposed to actual performance being ridiculous.

If they don't mention dynamic range you can expect it to be the normal 8bit photo mode. The ISO value ranges (no mention of delays this adds which is a big problem for moving HDR shots) will allow you to create extremely decent HDR imagery though.

But for 2400$ you can get better cameras.

This game seems interesting, but is leveling basically:

A) do a task, earn experience, SPEND it on skills, or

B) use a skill, incrementally increase that skill.

Both systems have been done before in other games, but I really, really prefer A these days, instead of hitting stuff with a sword 10,000 times to improve it a few levels.

Either way, it's on my Gog sale list, so I'll get it eventually, after a few patches.

By the way, if you haven't already played it, The Division is possibly the most fun I've had in an ARPG in quite some time, especially coop. Definitely pick it up on sale!

I have weirdly fond memories of putting my character under a low bridge in Oblivion, flipping to a tv show, pressing A to jump for an hour, then coming back and having a character that could leap like Superman.

On one hand, that's maybe hypocritical. San Andreas had you use skills to be able to run longer, which I despised because it had people going to a virtual gym and running so that they could run longer. That seemed like an awful use of video game time. On the other hand, I really hated in Skyrim that I couldn't amuse myself while going from point A to point B by jumping and changing direction 4 or 5 times before landing.

You *can* do that here, with a few things (Herbalism) but you'd be pretty insane not to instead go for trainers and skillbooks, after you make your hero literate
