There is so much money to be made with a proper sailing MMO game. Just take the simple (yet surprisingly deep) systems of Naval Action's sailing and combat, enhance the strategic and mercantile part of the game. give it the proper AAA engine, polish and UI, and most importantly give it a meaningful historical setting. None of this fantasy bullshit.

If you let people play as their historical navies, with the historical hulls of the times, they will flock in droves. If you build it they will come. Who wouldn't want to roleplay as the Captain of the HMS Victory? Or any number of the numerous famous national or pirate\privateer frigates of the 17th, 18th or early 19th centuries?

It’s been so long since I played the original Overwatch that it’s hard to determine whether Overwatch 2 is “better” than its predecessor.

Can't wait!!! Card has been ordered and supposed to arrive next week. After going back and forth between MSI 3090ti Suprim X and Asus Rog 3090 White, I ended up going with the Asus because my entire build has been pure white parts. Figure, why stop at the graphic card? The Suprim X, sure has a slight bump in performance but at the cost of even more power consumption and ultimately, not enough of a bump to matter when we're talking 3090s. Plus I'm not gaming at 4k.

Can't wait to try out this game in all its glory and then bring on Witcher 3 remaster hopefully by the end of the year!!

Gratz, the 3090 is an awesome card, as someone who played Cyberpunk with it, I can tell you you're in for a treat.

I think that is what made it great though, the freedom for ruthlessness, risk/reward. Some people hate that shit, but I'd sure love to see a developer with some talent take some of those qualities of UO and apply them to a next-gen game. We lost that with the whole themepark thing but I think there is more of an audience these days for a more "hardcore" multiplayer RPG.

I quite agree. All those carebear losers really ruined the genre for me. I would LOVE a really modern, high production value AAA MMO with a hardcore, soul crushing, PVP experience. Sadly no one will ever make one, because people get really upset when they lose their pixel shit. No idea why it's impossible to satisfy both camps though, just make a game and include the option to create characters on full PVP servers, or no PVP servers....
There are plenty full on PvP MMOs out there. Unless you think something like Mortal Online 2 is too carebear for you.

Have you been paying attention, like at all? I would rather castrate myself than play an unfinished buggy and terrible game like Mortal Online 2.

And this in a nutshell is what's wrong with gamers and why no matter how bad a large developer/publisher behaves, the people who complain say one thing but their wallet says something else.

Normally I would agree with you, but this is not Farcrzy 6, or Call of Doody 647, or any of a number of really shitty games that usually sell like hotcakes. It really isn't.

The butt plug allegation was never even insinuated by Carlsen. That's just the most extreme conspiracy theory pulled from an ever growing list of crazy ideas as to how anyone could ever conceivably cheat at chess. It really has nothing at all to do with Carlsen or Hans. But it's fun for the audience to think about, so...

The most explicit part of Magnus' very well-prepared statement is:

"I believe that Niemann has cheated more - and more recently - than he has publicly admitted. His over the board progress has been unusual, and throughout our game in the Sinquefield Cup I had the impression that he wasn’t tense or even fully concentrating on the game in critical positions, while outplaying me as black in a way I think only a handful of players can do."

I still like to think that this whole drama was somewhat deliberately calculated by Magnus to 10x public interest in chess to help grow his business(es?) built around chess. I also like to think that Hans stands to benefit handsomely from this thanks to the notoriety, if and only if, he can learn to squash his ego, embrace the madness, and roll into whatever role is most appropriate given someone with his experience and reputation. E.g. even if he is a cheater, he could turn a new leaf and work on anti-cheating or anti-fraud detection for chess or other gaming (or none gaming) industries.

So you literally dismiss one conspiracy theory, only to propose an even more outlandish one. Yeah....okay dude.

According to Carlsen a player sufficiently highly ranked, such as a grandmaster for example, doesn't even need to be fed moves to be able to cheat effectively. He simply needs to know whether there IS a great move to be made at any particular point in the game. Sounds a bit farfetched to me, but what the hell do I know, I'm a chess noob.

Magnus might be the best chess player of all time, but the way he handled this controversy, or rather the way he "created" this controversy just smells of ego and douchebaggery. Even if he is correct, and Niemann was cheating, this was not the way to handle it.

Also what the fuck does this mean, and I quote:
"Unfortunately at this time I am limited in what I can say without explicit permission from Niemann"

Snowden getting a pardon by any president of the US is about as likely as Putin stepping down from office. Obama should have done it, it's actually quite telling that he didn't.

That is a good trailer. Usually game to tv shows/movies goes really badly. This looks like hbo may have a winner.

Hmmmm, this is the third protector/father figure role Pedro Pascal is playing to my knowledge. Don't know how to feel about that, on the one hand I love Pedro Pascal. Ill watch anything with him in it, on the other, I feel like his talents deserve more than being typecast like that.

Wireless bone conducting headphones is where it is at. Zero ear fatigue. Great for gaming in the same room as someone else. You can both still hear each other fine and still hear the game in all its stereo glory (no pulling one headphone off the ear to hear the other person).

If you want to be completely immersive and have better lows than the bone conducting headphones, that is when you throw on the noise cancelling over the ear headphones connected to a SubPac and you get concert level audio experience without bothering the other person in the room. All while untethered from the PC.

Also, not having a cord means not having vibrations and other noises travelling along the cable and ruining your experience.

Only downside is you'll need a separate mic since bluetooth still sucks and no one wants to game in "headset" mode.

Ok, one more downside is the inherent latency in the audio, but you have to be pretty sweaty to sweat a few ms less of a heads up when hanzo ults or something in a FPS. So I will concede if you need to squeeze out your best performance in a competitive FPS then wired is unbeatable.

But for everyone else, serious, you owe it to yourself to give bone conducting headphones a shot.

200$ a pop. Yeah, fuck that.
I'm seeing them as low as $40.

Wow, that's much more reasonable. Thanks jdreyer.

Yes, I've played since early Beta also. Very fun, cool retro shooter

Pro tip ? ...for those who want to have a slight bit better graphics of the enemies but still be retro.... there is an option in the "gameplay" tab, I believe, that lets you toggle models from 'sprite' based to the actual models they used to program in.
They are a lot clearer and crisp , but it still retains all the rest of the retro look of the environment .



Shit...I gotta try that.
