. In fact, scores mean shit, especially on 1 to 10 scale. I mean, seriously, is anything under a score of 7 good? So why even have a 1, 2, 3, 4.5, 5, 6, 6.5? lol

I find value in the numbers - 1 is an awful game, 3 is bad, 5 is mediocre, etc. Do many games get those scores? No, but I don't see why that means anything, other than most studios have some quality control.

The argument I usually see about not having scores is that people will just look at the number and not read the article. While I get that argument, if I'm interested in reviews of something (anything really), I tend to check out some good reviews, bad reviews, etc. If they don't give it a score, then I just don't end up checking out their review. Since there are so many reviews out there, the score is just a convenient way to bucket it.

That's strange on the EVGA front. I hit their site day of launch and put in my email for notification of arrival. Unless they had the cards listed prior to launch day. I don't even remember any more
You can go back to EVGA and see what card/cards you chose to be notified about.

Ahh - thank you! Shows I registered to be notified on 9/18 but nothing sent yet.

For a 3080, right? They have prioritized the higher-end models, trying to get as much money from what few chips they have, so if it's an Ultra you might be getting an email soon. Cheaper Black and Gaming ones are still on 9/16 according to what I've seen. Here's a report which is supposed to be regularly updated by an EVGA employee.

I have one for all the non waterblocked 3080s, so I GUESS I'm getting close? That's really good info, thanks!

All these folks with 30x0 cards.

I've pretty much always gone purple so used some sort of turret to beat the final boss. It didn't work well on the first boss cell difficulty so I was trying green with shields as I saw some folks posted about how you could block all his attacks.

I did see you can use multiple save slots to keep practicing the final boss. I haven't tried it yet but that seems super handy.

Bought the DLC but haven't tried it yet!

I as well! When I came back I was a bit overwhelmed by all the changes. For the most part my understanding is that they've balanced most items pretty well.

My only real gripe with the game is the difficulty I'm on (one boss cell) it's pretty easy to get to the final boss, then I just get obliterated and since it takes an hour to get to him, I don't get to practice him long

I've read that most of his attacks can be blocked so I'm working on learning how to use shields - prior to this I had never really used them.

What I hope for is GOG Galaxy 2.0 to just make ALL games from all of those platforms available in one gaming software. I hope they can pull this off without getting sued to hell and back!

It is now right? I've been using GOG Galaxy 2.0 for all my games for a month or so. Seems really good.

I think the new look is great and really good on the phone! I really never went to Blues on my phone as zooming was not fun.

I would say the header of each story looks a little thick, but other than that I think it looks great.

Thanks to everyone involved, it's really nice to have blues on my phone.

I played in first person mode pretty much exclusively on PC and it played great - no complaints w/ keyboard and mouse. Game was as good as advertised.

I did play 3rd person in vehicles with controller just because it felt better to me (the game will auto switch controller type and view when going into vehicles as an option.)

I saw that there was a lot of discussion and I loved Freespace 2 (easily my favorite space sim.)

Disappointed that half of the discussion is about Star Citizen...figures

Yeah, the way I described her was an incredibly charismatic awful person. I would never want to be around her, but really enjoyed watching her. Which, I think, means the actress did a great job (hated her in American Pie, haha), but the character was a terrible person (as she was supposed to be.) I enjoyed watching everyone, but would want to be around none of them.

Most of the time I feel shows run a bit long and feel padded by the end of the season, but I was surprised I actually wished this show was a bit longer.

And I totally agree on your description of the characters.

Anyone watch Russian Doll on Netflix? I hate the lead actress. Hated every character. Found the show insanely entertaining.

Ya loved it. Originally found the lead annoying but she grew on me as the show progressed to the point I'm actually thinking of watching Orange is the New Black simply b/c she was in it.

So are all multiplayer games like this now? Where the longer you play, the stronger your characters are?

The only multiplayer game I played religiously was TF2 and most of the items were just side grades, and you could get regular items by trading super easy, so there was no notion of one player having an inherent advantage over you.

I guess I don't get it. Why would I want to ever play a game where other players literally do more damage than I do?

While I can appreciate your passion for the original game, I barely remember it. I do remember System Shock 1 and 2 and Bioshock vividly.

So in my humble opinion, I'm happy that copied more memorable games. I can see your point that they used the IP just for the name, but I'm happy the game turned out so well.

Oh, I forgot they saved the best joke of their retarded post for the final paragraph...

And as always, you all play an important role in that. We want to hear from you about your experiences, both what you love about the game and what you’d like to see changed. We’re listening, and we’re committed to partnering with you as we continue to explore the Andromeda galaxy together.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Right. Is that why them fuckers shut down the BSN forums because they oh so loooove to listen to what people think? Where do they think people are s'posed ta leave their feedback? On fucking Facebook? Or Twitter with its retarded character limit where you can't even begin to describe 0.0001% of the shittiness of this abortion?

LULZ. First the game's a complete shallow, casual, dumb as shit clusterfuck and now they are trying to put out the fires with gasoline. Good job, EA. Rock on.

I dunno man - if you give feedback on a forum and you talk like this, no wonder they would ignore it.

I'm surprised they update it at all any more.

Why? You guys really believe that just because you don't like it that no one else plays it? At the very least tens of thousands of people are still playing D3 just based on the number of open games available and that's only a fraction of the total number of games being played.

Another free patch and content update 5 years after the release? Yeah... is there some reason not to be happy about that? I can't think of any game I've every purchased where I wouldn't be happy about that sort of an update. Explain to me how adding rare drops to a game based on random drops is a bad thing?

What's clear is that after 5 years you guys have finally run out of reasonable things to complain about. The game still exists and gets updates?! Preposterous!

Thank god you still check in on every D3 thread to let us know you still don't like it. We were all on the edge of our seats wondering if this was going to be the patch that finally changed your mind. /s Rolleyes

I probably worded that poorly. What I meant to say was more that I'm amazed a company still supports a game 3 years after an expansion. They're not going to get any more revenue from the game until they release the Necromancer pack.

I think Blizzard has given it mind boggling amounts of support.

And I actually love(d) that game - I played so much I finally just had to quit it cold turkey. When I saw they are finally releasing the ability to change sets it's taking everything not to fire it back up again.

Probably need to stay away from those Rhyker (sic?) videos.

Then, when you get sick of Primal Ancients, we will release Exotic Primal Ancients, with even bigger numbers, and 0.1% chance of the Primals to drop! Aren't you thankful!?

It's so embarrassingly clear they have their fourth or fifth stringers on the Diablo team at this point.

Didn't the expansion come out like 3 years ago? I'm surprised they update it at all any more.

So, you were criticizing someone for getting something wrong, and when correcting them you knowingly were also wrong? With logic like that I am going to guess you work in corporate management...

To everyone, wala/walla is a saying I will not accept I got it wrong, it was right. There are plenty of words that could be used in its place though. Comprende?

Sorry I'm not jumping on you, but I had never heard the phrase "walla" used before so I hit google and thought the first result was pretty funny:
