IMO, they need to leverage the existing 'Overwatch' system which is peer review of 8 round segments taken from a reported player. You spectate the 'Suspect' and have a handful of reporting options at the end, ranging from cheating to poor sportsmanship. Valve has already put in place evaluation systems to reduce players from gaming the Overwatch decision.

Sooooo, increase the incentives to use that system. Perhaps reviewing Overwatch cases contributes to an XP boost or drop rate for loot. So if you want to maximize your rewards, you need to review a handful of Overwatch cases a week. For those playing the game a few times a week, it's a no brainer to do the work and get the boost.

One of the most successful video game franchises of all time, even though the majority of players are female. But the ladies love their reality TV shows, so I'm sure this will be a hit.

Anyone own this?

I've been reading online about Multiplayer, and it sounds like the game DOES NOT support Steam Friends and you cannot make a party to join online public servers. Instead, you have to create your own server (and thusly port forwarding), or join a public server amd try to invite them into it.

Is that the case still?

Present evidence?

I wish more review websites did VR performance analysis. Babeltech is the only one I know of that does it:

If a player wants to run maximum settings, then only a RTX 2080 Ti or perhaps a RTX 2080 Super will probably suffice for most games.

As for CPU, I only know the anecdotal user experiences reported on forums for the VR games I use, and Intel is preferred. Perhaps it's reckless of me, but it does present opportunities like this: Do you have any links to AMD vs Intel for VR performance comparison?

I put my Sennheiser's down for planner electromagnetic headphones. Takes more power to drive them, but rewarded with durable sound production with amazing clarity. The positional audio is excellent because of neutrality.

But I've still got a soft spot for the warm qualities in Sennheisers.

Better Silicon, slight performance increase for a noticeable increase in-cost... The free game is a nice touch..

This whole refresh is mostly just a marketing gambit by AMD to keep people talking about AMD and not on Intel / Comet Lake. Smart move I think.

Can I haz Zen3 please now so I can build a new computer, thank you.

why would u want amd? intel's better for gaming
Because many, if not all of us, have been GPU limited for years now. Intel is the bee's knees if you game at 1080p 240hz.

AMD's performance with VR is behind that of Intel+NVIDIA

Techspot: These are technically new processors and you’ll want to know if they’re worth buying. But let's just stop right there to say, spoiler alert: they’re a big fat nothing-burger that you should avoid. Just buy the models we already had

Retailers and system builders love this kind of product release. They can upsell the igornant consumer to the "latest and greatest", or pitch the "great deal" of the previous model. Win/win for everyone but the consumer.

Didnt take AMD long to pull an Intel.

I totally prefer this approach to a single player campaign, rather than the rubbish Codies has put into past entries or its other franchises.

Most of it reads sane and reasonable to me, except for:

And then, there's the thing that has plagued gaming for many years: the continuing problem of toxicity both in-game and in gaming communities.

There's a real problem with the attitude of teenagers and college kids. If only they had an outlet for their pent up angst, roller coaster emotions, and frustrations with the world...

It's time for the industry to admit it doesn't just have a harassment problem - it has a drinking problem....an event was "legendary" due to how drunk everyone was - and it's frankly ridiculous that heavy drinking has become so normalised at professional events.

Damnit, now they want to take away the beer???

mob-like mentality that protects and even rewards abusers while "hushing" victims into silence

Just flip victim and abuser in that sentence, and you get the hypocracy of some SJW participants. You're not better than someone else if you play the same game.

The way YouTubes recommendations work, if you view a balanced factual video about the holocaust, YouTube eventually starts recommending holocaust deniers and white supremist/nazi leaning videos.

I think 230 was a stupid idea. Anyone or anything that is disseminating hate speech or calls to violent action should be held accountable. 230 is chaos.

YouTube added 'alternative' content to the 'recommendations' to avoid echo chambers, but that's only deployed in the last couple years (!).

I think it would kill YouTube. And pretty much all of the internet. Whether you prefer Reddit or Voat, Facebook or Parler, there's no way to check the literal billions of things that go up every hour. 300 hours of YouTube content is uploaded every minute.

I think that they need to be significantly more on the ball to delete things that get reported, but don't think you can have them proactively monitoring, which they'd need to do in order to be accountable.

Or, think of it this way - should Blue be held accountable because Quinn said that it's ok to sexually harass women at work on this site?

The Internet with social platforms has cranked up the 'speed' at which the populous moves towards ideologies. There is so much existing content and thriving online communities, that anyone can fall, rapidly, face first into any subject without getting up from the chair. That simply wasn't the case 20 years ago.

I'm not a Steve Jobs fan, but he was a brilliant communicator:

I think one of the things that really separates us from the high primates is that we’re tool builders. I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. It was not too proud a showing for the crown of creation. So, that didn’t look so good. But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts.

And that’s what a computer is to me. What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds. -Steve Jobs

There are brilliant minds over at Alphabet, Facebook, Apple, etc, and they are building better and better "bicycles", and you may think 'Oh dude I can go ANYWHERE!'... except, core to its design, it's main purpose is to keep you pedalling. It makes sense to ask the bike maker to also provide a map of all the roads to go on, but is blocking off dangerous pathways really their responsibility? What is 'too dangerous' for my mind, and how will a corporation determine that? Capitalism, aka, money. And it's done wonders for US political system...

I suppose the silver lining with the speed we've gained with these bicycles, is that failures within this laissez-faire tech industry should occur more quickly. Theoretically, reducing the harm. But with monopolies already formed and plenty of ways for small players to make a quick, dishonest buck, I have my doubts.

I saw stuff by Molyneux a year ago or so. He was promoting cultural isolationism. Stuff like 'every country has its own culture and shouldn't adapt it to suit immigrants, but rather immigrants should adapt to the culture they are joining.' Didn't see anything white supremacist tho'. Certainly heard him called that, just never heard it from him. Hopefully he wasn't thrown out with the bathwater.

He's a Canadian (of which the vast majority believe in multiculturalism), and generally speaking, "immigrants should adapt" is American (melting pot).

I guess YouTube thinks Molyneux is to white supremacy, as marijuana is to heroine... a gateway into hardcore. That's literally the example NYT outlined in Rabbit Hole.

Anyone listen to NYT podcast "Rabbit Hole", its investigative look into YouTube? It starts off looking into the 'recommended algorithm' and YouTube's wilful ignorance to the side effects on the viewer, or exploitation of the creator. It then spirals out to view more of the Internet realm... heck I even discovered a few things.

Also sad most companies can't seem to beat the cheaters. Or don't hardly even try.

As shown with Valorant's anti-cheat client... what level of privacy and compromizes to your private property are you willing to give up as an innocent gamer?

It's no different than real crime outside the game: freedom can be exploited by those that choose to gain an unfair advantage. And the rest of us have to live with it because we enjoy our freedoms too much.

I'm curious to see what CSGO implements, it's new anti-cheat is in beta. Since going F2P, there's been a major uptick in cheaters.
