I thought the "review" seemed really goofy.

"How did THIS get rave reviews?!"

Well, for starters, you didn't play it back when it was released.

I never played it, but it seemed pretty silly to stomp over some old game other people liked at the time.

Ah yes, the usual Blizzard Nerf Hammer has struck again. Let's not adjust something a little bit downwards, let's just make it completely utterly useless, then adjust it back up when the cries of outrage become too overwhelming.

It's really become a concept by now. Many games employ the Blizzard Nerf Hammer method of "balancing."



I guess I don't see anything wrong with making drastic changes on the PTR as long as they listen to feedback, which it seems like they are doing.

Even if you do have a gaming PC, if you haven't upgraded to a GTX 1080, this might be for you.

It wouldn't be able to do VR though. Too much latency.


I have a GTX 960 and I play Witcher 3 with almost everything up to max, so why the hell would I buy a GTX 1080 in the first place? I have no interest in 4k gaming and I sure as hell have zero interest in paying to stream my games from someone else's high end system. Midrange graphics cards do just fine for about 99% of the games out there. For everything else, it'll get optimized by patching.

Personally, it's for high refresh rate monitors. Games just feel much smoother at 100+ fps on those monitors which requires a pretty solid GPU for many modern games.

Obviously in the context of streaming a game, running at that frame rate would never happen, but just saying one of my main reasons for wanting a high end video card.

This game looks like an incredible experience I'll nope out of after 45 minutes. Life is currently full of enough anxiety, without the need for supplemental, pant-shitting, terror.

Too bad...I'd love to play it.

When you grow up and become an adult, you will learn the difference between fiction and reality. Just a few more years. Hang in there, li'l buddy...

Wow, what an unnecessary, sophomoric and condescending remark. What underlying issues are you displacing here?

If you click his name you can see his post history. You'll quickly notice a pattern.

- Bind on Equip legendaries (see first point for synnergy)

Didn't that come long after launch, when they chucked the auction house? I thought that was right before the expansion launched.

It's definitely in my top 5, perhaps even top 3 games of all time. I think I will rank it as the #1 RPG of all time.

Only thing I will warn against, is that the main game plus both DLCs is an absolutely monstrous amount of content, and if you try to do it all in one go, you may get bored of it just as you're hitting your stride in Blood & Wine. And Blood & Wine is so awesome, you need to try to keep yourself from getting a little "meh" in it, so maybe play through the main game, take a few weeks break, then do both DLCs.

That said, this game is worth every accolade and all the monies.

Wow such high praise. Real life intervened so I never got a chance to buy it, but I really enjoyed Witcher 2. Guess it's going to be a good fall.

Have absolutely no desire to play Overwatch and Hearthstone. Nor Diablo (do not like the subject matter). Nor Heroes of the Storm (it bores me). And my WOW sub is pretty much coming to an end. Don't care for Legion (it's more of the same). I have the complete StarCraft 2 game that I can barely bring myself to play (I find it boring).

I guess what I'm saying is Blizzard no longer makes games that appeal to me.

I feel the same way, but try telling that to the 15 million other idiots who drank Blizzs Cool aid.

So Dark and edgy.

I've long used AutoHotkey for these sort of issues. Just like how Witcher 2 bizarrely wouldn't let you re-map certain keys.

That program truly is a god send.

But that does absolutely nothing to discount the irony that the most secure platforms to have a clean competitive match today is on fucking consoles.
Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online. Serious mode used to mean a LAN party. Pretty hard to get away with this shit if a guy can watch over your shoulder.

Well we might get a Clinton president and the Smashing Pumpkins are still together, so your dream of reliving 1995 might come true!

I am probably in the extreme minority, but I want a sequel, as in similar in tone, to Quake 1.

Ain't just you. Pretty much agree with everything you said here.

I as well am most fond of the atmosphere in the first quake.

too bad there isn't a really good ultrawide monitor yet.

I have the ASUS ROG 34" 3440x1440p, IPS, GSYNC, 100hz

I love it...

https://www.asus.com/ca-en/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-SWIFT-PG348Q/

So how does that work when you can't push that resolution?

I run 3x24" screens in nvidia surround, so if I have the horsepower to run a game in 5760x1200, I can do that, but if the game is too demanding, I just run it on the middle screen at 1920x1200.
