If you mean XCOM2, the saves are seeded at mission start so you can't savescum. Statistically it often feels like you're missing a disproportionate number of high percentage shots but I could never detect any form AI "cheats" when I was screwing around in the game files for modding purposes. It is frustrating to miss a 83% shot then a 92% shot but statistically speaking it will happen.
XCOM cheats in your favor on lower difficulty settings but otherwise the probabilities are exactly as they are listed. Plenty of people just don't understand how probability works
Also people don't understand that turn based is an abstraction. When you catch an enemy in the open, that doesn't mean it's standing perfectly still waiting for you to shoot it. It's easier to conceptualize the enemies as in the process of running, dodging, diving for cover, etc, and no, you should not just get a guaranteed 100% shot just because it's in the open.

I linked the third code. Thanks Derek! Gonna check it out tonight after work. Also, I JUST got a new monitor yesterday, does Anthem support Ultrawide screens? Won’t be a dealbreaker, just curious.
Edit: I’ll check it out TOMORROW after work, apparently.

3. EA doesn't seem to realize that PC gamers don't rent. They buy. That crap flew with consoles (and still does today with Redbox). The mindset today is that you BUY when there's a big sale on Steam or GOG (or the publisher platforms). Why would anyone rent when they can get 50-75% off a AAA-title that just came out 2-3 months ago? Foolishness.

It's technically not DRM. A secure cert is a way to create a safe connection between server and client without a VPN. For all online services like Steam, WOW, Overwatch, Battle.net and so forth there's an SSL Secure Cert behind the scenes. The fact that you never hear about it might speak volumes about the Oculus folks for letting theirs expire.

I almost have to give him credit. I thought he was a one trick pony with milking people for virtual ships. But selling digital dirt? EA wishes it was this creative in revenue generation.

How is the performance now, on a mid-range PC? I tried playing last year on a free weekend and just couldn't deal with lag (even when playing solo, not online)

This just forces you to buy the ultimate edition if you want to play with your friends. Base game with no DLC is trash. Glad I snagged the few heists I disnt have, as they shut down buying DLC for base game.

Microsoft should hire "User".
I'm pretty sure you're being snide, I hope so lol.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of the future updates to something makes a MicrosoftApp.exe (maybe they'll be blatant and make it a system .dll) go out of it's way to specifically and arbitrarily use an instruction unsupported by older CPUs causing a crash on older systems.
Then they'll basically go "See this is why we aren't supporting those old CPUs, it was for your own good.", while pretending far more advanced and intensive software that runs just fine on those "older" CPUs seemingly due to a combination of voodoo, magic and bottled dark matter, doesn't exist.
Seems "WinTel" is alive an well.
