I am happy with my way overpowered gold psu. Fan never comes on (except for a spinup during startup) making it basically silent.
California could just ban AMD CPUs and GPUs instead, problem solved.

Except, AMD holds, what, 3% market share? XD

really wish I could check it out. sadly volvo decided that all gtx970 owners (and some others as well) would also receive a complementary reduction of 50fps. gg

Got a link to this?

And holy fucking shit. This update is HUUUUUUGE! Hope to get to try it out soon but at the moment, I'm busy making money in GTA 5 selling duped, modded cars, 34 at a time, in preparation for the next update...

Game still needs at least a year of patching and several Foundation sized free expansions before I'd recommend at any price. Every gameplay feature is so basic and poorly implemented. Flying, shooting, collecting resources, all were done so much better in other games more than a decade ago. The one saving grace, if they chose to embrace it, is the struggling modding community. It came on strong then burned out very quickly. Open the game up some more and invite the fans in then this could be something to talk about. Right now it's a waste of a good music soundtrack.

You kids these days just can't appreciate the value of a tech demo...

I really need to try and play this game some time. The only MOBA to hook me so far has been Heroes of the Storm.

It's EXTREMELY deep and complex. It requires a serious time commitment. You're gonna be terribly frustrated at first. But once you start to get it, it's just about the most rewarding experience in gaming right now.

So, AMD finally admits their drivers were terrible? Now it's just their hardware? If their drivers don't suck anymore, they did when it was ATi, when they had decent and competitive hardware. Now it's reversed, AMD? Fun times.

You can't put a price on that!

Damn. I came here to say "how much is 25% off free?" but the first comment crushed all my hopes and dreams.

Is this game anywhere near as good as DOTA 2?

Nope.

It's very shallow and there's a distinct lack of big plays. Carries don't actually carry per se, and the card system is based around RNG - and which is full of boring passives and actives with stupidly long cooldowns. Did i also mention you have to select your cards before the match starts?

It also has a bunch of shared resources, and a super low XP and Card cap. Hero's also lack depth eg invoker has a higher skill ceiling and learning curve than all the hero's in paragon combined (i guess this may be due to the multi platform / console limitations).

Think of it more like a shooter hybrid with 'winions' (yes, we call them winions because they can take your towers and inhibitor [barracks] in seconds by themselves).

I've been playing it on and off for a few months and while it's definitely not bad, just don't go in expecting a game comparable to DOTA.

Still worth a shot though, it's free.

Thanks. Sounds like a grain or two of salt is in order.

This game is waaaaaaaaaay too much micromanagement. Water physics are a pretty cool feature, but the rest of the game is just frustrating. Cemeteries fill up very quickly, so you have to build more, and once they're full, they just take up space, and nobody likes living near one, so that's less areas you can build for your growing citizenry. Energy requirements quickly get out of hand, and the ones that create more pollution seem to work better, but quickly become their own worst enemy. Waste management, population satisfaction, water and power are each a constant battle. As you grow, you need more power and resources. You need amusement parks, etc. for your citizens. You need to build metropolitan transportation options such as buses and trains, along with all their routes to cover the city. You need waste management, and the landfills fill up quickly, incinerators suck up a lot of power and create more pollution. Emergency services don't cover very much area, so you need to keep building and upgrading those all the time. You need schools and jobs. This game becomes a huge pain in the ass pretty fast, and it gets worse the more you advance. I can't even imagine the annoying aspect of adding natural disasters into the mix.

Nothing beats the original EA Space Hulk adaptation mission briefing guys voice.

Dude's voice was epic.

I played the hell out of that game! It is the entire extent of my knowledge of Warhammer.

A little extra? What's a little extra? $70 is EXTREMELY cheap.

He has to. He sucks at making games, so he has to bully others.

Also a news outlet that quotes "him" for something that "he" has zero insight over is really saying a lot about that news outlet

Ps.: A Minecraft movie? Minecraft has a story?

The noise from the tires is already much louder than the engine noise in many modern gasoline cars. When I am out walking I often hear the tire noise without ever hearing the engine of cars that are close.

Quality tires don't have that problem.

ALL tires make noise above a certain speed (25mph) and above 30mph you have wind noise.

This law is for speeds below that range where tires make (no) noise ^^

I wasn't suggesting there is NO sound. I was saying, the cheapies are the ones that make loud brown noise when a car is cruising by at neighborhood speeds. Higher end tires are typically much quieter.

Quality tires don't have that problem. It's the cheap, garbage tires that are typically included with a car that are loud and annoying.

I don't think "honking" or something like that would be the appropriate solution either. The problem isn't pedestrians in the road, it's when pedestrians are alongside the road, either attempting to cross, or just walking alongside. You want to be able to hear oncoming vehicles around you, especially for visually impaired individuals.

What about something like the kids used to do in the olden days with playing cards in the spokes of their bicycles?

No interest in this game. Looks like a boring rip-off of the much better TF2. Seems like it's overhyped everywhere, and I'm getting a little tired of it. When is Trump gonna put up a wall around Blizzard? XD
