The 2500k doesn't run everything "really well" it just "runs everything". There have been some substantial improvements with CPU performance in high-demand engines over the past 7 years.

Well, any game running the Frostbite engine makes great use of >4 cores. In fact the performance dropoff from an i7 to an i5 in the same class is quite noticeable in MP. like 30-40%

I think I'm saving for the Volta Titan card, which should be able to reasonably power one of the new HDR 4k 144hz monitors. A total CPU system upgrade is nowhere on my "to do" list anytime soon. Maybe Ice Lake, but this 4790k still destroys most games.

I am thinking of building an AMD based system next.

Yep, me too. If for no other reason that if Ryzen 2 comes out and is significantly better at gaming, all you'll need to do is plug in the new processor and flash the BIOS. No new chipset needed, like Intel's rip-off bullshit.

That's assuming there's no update to the Ryzen chipset. I don't think anyone knows this %100 one way or the other yet, and way too early to speculate.

Everybody "borrows" from everybody. How many FPS's are there? How many Action RPG's? How many rogue-likes? How many open world gangsta sims? Hero Shooters? Those all copied what was popular and ran with them. It's ironic that Ubsioft's best title in years (Watch Dogs 2) borrowed liberally from GTA.

Well, I think it could be argued that GTA 3 "invented" the open-world sandbox. Sure Ubi's systems have been copied a lot, but I don't particularly think that they're very interesting solutions, they just seem to be the best that people have come up with when it comes to "what to do" in an open world sandbox. I mean, I could live another 50 years without having to capture another FarCry outpost, and it would be a life well-lived...

Oh and Watch Dogs 2 is definitely the best thing they've put out in years, The Division was also good, but I'm almost done my second playthrough with WD2, and it's just so goddamned good. Kinda sad that it's not getting an Xbox one X enhanced 4k edition upgrade, as that game looks fucking drop-dead gorgeous at 4k (haven't even seen it with HDR). I just want to enjoy the PvP from my couch without going up against KB+M players.

Goddamn, they really need a fucking 50% price cut and an advertising blitz on that game, so many people still playing GTA V when WD2 is better in almost every respect. GTA is for cavemen that want to liberate their lizard brain by just blowing shit up and killing thousands of identical NPC policemen. WD2 is for people with fully-formed frontal lobes who enjoy stretching that grey matter.

Also, is there a legit site that has discounts for digital Xbox one games? I've never used this platform before, but this game has the PC/Xbox crossplay or whatever where you buy it once and get it on both platforms. Is that only if I buy it in the windows store or something? or can I get it on GMG and still land an Xbox version?

I THOUGHT CONSOLES WERE SUPPOSED TO ME SIMPLER GODDAMNIT.

I would LOOOOOOOOOOVE to hear WaltC chime in on this.

He fits perfectly into this Venn diagram shit sandwich:

1) He uses the internet

2) He votes for Trump

I keep thinking Activision is going to have to up their game with the COD franchise and yet they don't really and they still sell it like they were selling water in the Sahara. All these other shooters out there, from Destiny to Overwatch to whatever and COD still sells with minimal changes compared to the sometimes very drastic changes that a series like Battlefield makes from year to year.

I mean, if it sells I guess Activision is smart for doing it this way. I just don't get it from a consumer point of view. I mean, even the zombies are derivative.

Well, I'd agree with you that DICE put far more effort into upgrading and improving and re-designing and re-finagling their ENGINE than the CoD series, but the core gameplay is largely the same since 1942.

That is with the exceptions of the most creative, inventive and "outside of the box" titles like Hardline, and 2142. Which ironically was harshly criticized by throngs of angry gamers that these additions to the series were "just mods", and claimed it was the "same thing", even though no one seemed to mind when BF3 and BF4 were essentially the same game. Which is hilarious and ironic and super weird.

Anyways, fuck CoD. They have no reason to not have the best engine/platform for FPS games by now. They infact have quite the opposite.

..... oh I just woke up. Is it the same tripe? probably... back to sleep... zzzzz

For the most popular FPS franchise of all time (at least as far as sales are concerned... i think) they certainly seem keen to keep the bar as low as possible.

Still based on a mutilated fork from the Quake 3 engine? probably.

How many billions has this franchise made? Think they could throw a few mil on some engine builders? NAHHHHHHHHHHH

"There is a situation where players look at numbers on Steam; that doesn't happen on PlayStation 4. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but you look at PC, [concurrent user] health versus PS4, PS4 is doing fine," he said. "People cough up 30 bucks and hop online and they don't overthink it. On PC there is you wanting to declare something a success or a bomb by this internet culture that loves to just observe things."

Say what you want about his prickly demeanour, this guy is one of the only ones in the industry who isn't afraid to call shit like it is. Nobody looks at player counts on consoles. Meanwhile, us PC players just sit here and snipe at the OBVIOUS FAILURE of this game from afar, without most of us having even played it. This is indeed a failure, but really it's a failure of PC gamers.

I'm becoming more and more confident in my Xbox One X pre-order decision every day.

There are a ton of reasons why this game fails on PC.

1. Too much competition in the FPS realm right now with PUBG, the ever-present CS:GO, TF2, R6, etc.

This is a bullshit argument (most of the rest of your arguments are bullshit too).Every year in gaming is the year with the "most FPS players ever". There is room for more than 4-5 games. I don't remember only 4 Drama movies being released last year because of the "over saturation of the Drama genre in movies". I don't remember only 5 Political Humour books being published in the last year cause everyone only reads one of 5 books.

Only gamers (particularly PC gamers) have this tribal herd mentality. That's why Overwatch has a billion players, and LB has zero. One game isn't fundamentally better than the other, they're 2 different arena games.

I wonder how much of that is people playing thinking they're going to be an e-sports champion with a Bliz game, or somehow make a career as a youtube/twitch streamer. I miss when people just played games for fun. And you can't tell me that from an objective perspective OW is a billion times more fun than LB.

Ech, if you're willing to spend 45K on vaporware, you should be willing to lose 45K on vaporware. Sure, I guess they didn't know the extent of the delays and/or lies when they signed up, and I am happy they got their money back...

I just kinda hoped that they got stiffed and were out the 45K, because then this would be a cautionary tale of spending way too much money on a fucking kickstarter, which should be the only real lesson anyone can take from this hot mess.
