Hardly epic or mega as far as deals go, but at least they tried.

Dangit, I gotta change my depends after reading about that x570 mb, it's gonna look sweat on my RGB desk with my RGB coffee cup and RGB stapler.

Pffft, noob. You need an RGB trimmed monitor, RGB pen holder, RGB pencil sharpner, RGB paperclip holder, RGB tape dispenser, and RGB printer.

That sounds like the desk of a geezer noob alright, lol. Nobody uses paper at home anymore.

Initial reviews for Days Gone weren't very good either, but I loved that game. Sometimes these sites are in such a rush to farm clicks from a new release that they shit out an opinion whether or not it's been fully considered by someone who even cares to play the thing.

Yeah... I'm pretty sure they've used roadmaps all this time. Update-hungry gamers demanding to see it so they can know what will be added and when post-launch is new.

Goldeneye on N64 had the dual-stick, dual-trigger FPS control scheme in '97. It just required you hold two of those controllers.

I know choosing Epic as a outlet was a clever trick to get people to buy from U-play direct, but they really should stay clear of Epic. It does noting but harm to a reputation they have been trying to build up over the years.
Touch Epic and forever smell of s***.

well if they sold it on the Uplay you would have a point...

It's all over the front page of store.ubi.com... This game is not EGS exclusive, it's just paid Steam exclusion.

News Comments > Titan Quest Atlantis Expansion Released
4. Re: Titan Quest Atlantis Expansion Released May 9, 2019, 21:21 jacobvandy
 
Well as you can imagine, the IP was sucked into the void when THQ folded. That's why the original devs, mainly the lead designer, went on to make Grim Dawn as a spiritual successor; they wanted to do a sequel but couldn't work out the licensing. These other guys managed to get hold of the rights and re-released it, and now apparently are adding new stuff. I haven't felt the need to re-visit it though, having spent a few hundred hours with GD already, which is also getting a new expansion soon.

That's a lot of yapping about growth when the actual numbers show their profits are down compared to last year. And then their projection for next year shows profits will remain at almost exactly the same level as this year, except for a "one-time tax benefit" of $1.5 billion to inflate it. Basically a shell game, where they've put in for a transfer of ownership of some IP(s) overseas to their Swiss HQ (which is not yet final).

Randy with his delusions of grandeur does not determine where the game is going to be sold. 2K announced when the game was revealed that it's Epic exclusive for 6 months and then will be sold elsewhere. They didn't specify where yet, but Steam is a safe bet, along with wherever else Borderlands and other 2K titles are currently available.

It's pretty fun, but it can be very frustrating at times. It's nice to find something new to learn. Recommend footman as your first class and just spam thrust.

So it's exactly like Chivalry.

Randy is on something he shouldn't be and/or off something he should... which isn't a new thing, but developing BL3 behind closed doors stopped his nonsense from spewing all over the place for a blessed while. Maybe he should get started on the next game sooner rather than later.

25 million installs of the ten or so freebies they've done so far? How many millions of users do they have again?

I haven't picked it up yet, but will as soon as gmg has it back in stock. Not sure how a digital code can go "out of stock" but it's been like this for weeks.

I'm glad the game is doing well. I've had fun with the beta

Third party sites do not have key generators, they have to acquire batches of codes from publishers same as retailers get shipments of physical copies.

Samsung thinks millennials want vertical TVs.

Rocket launches and long document editing. That's the only time you should use a vertical screen.

Humans evolved as plains dwellers. Viewing the world in landscape mode is our default setting.

Beyond the clickbait headline, they explain this new TV rotates to support horizontal or vertical, which is meant for embiggulating things from your smartphone screen/camera. A niche usage befitting its place in Samsung's line of designer TVs that cost 5x the normal price because they're made to look nice even when not in use, like high-end furniture.

They're always full of snark, just read any page of their website. The FAQ for Satisfactory is particularly silly and generally unhelpful.

Man, how I've come to hate the term waifu.

Was it ever a good and useful term?

No. Truth be told, I always hated it, but now it seems to bleed out of the anime community and into general internet parlance, it's even more annoying.

I thought it just meant anime chick?

Only the ones you like-like.

When you smokers end up with lung cancer I pity your last days struggling to breathe until you choke to death. That is a horrific way to die. Having seen it, I would ask that you stay away from putting smoke in your lungs.

Funny how the horrible, capitalistic greedy cigarette companies encouraged smoking, and how evil they were.
But now, pot is awesome, no no harmful effects at all, hey let's legalized it everywhere. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. And we're not like those evil companies at all, because we care about your health.

Marlboro Greens are coming, guaranteed. And they'll be stuffed full of additives same as their tobacco cigs.

Why's it called "In Defense of Aliens"? Isn't the exact opposite happening here?

'Defending Cute & Cuddly Aliens from Mean & Scary Aliens' isn't quite as catchy.
