  • Amaranthar said: I find it hard to believe that this game doesn't have enticements for players to spend money in the cash shop. I was very interested in it before, and still am, if they'd go to a sub payment model with no cash shop (except for…
  • And this was your first reason to dislike EA?  I've been avoiding them for over 20 years now.
  • Gorwe said: Torval said: Ridelynn said: Ryzen is a huge leap for AMD, so there is innovation happening. Problem is, as huge of a leap as it was for AMD, it was still just catching up to where Intel was in 2011. But it was eno…
  • Phry said: Bloodaxes said: My current PSU is:  Corsair TX 650 W Like I said, it's 8+ years old tough. That's what worries me. As for the SSD I won't go higher than 240 GB. I'm fine with having steam games on a regular HDD and some pa…
  • Vrika said: Quizzical said: Getting an SSD strikes me as most of the point of this upgrade.  Replacing an eight year old hard drive is also a good idea, as by now it's living on borrowed time and should not be relied upon.  If you continue…
  • Why are you looking to upgrade memory?  If there's some particular situation where you're running out and it's killing performance, then fine.  But don't upgrade just for the sake of upgrading, as 8 GB is still plenty for most people. Even if you d…
  • Sky Lake Refresh Refresh is just Sky Lake with two more cores, and sometimes clocked a little higher because the process node is now more mature.  More cores rather than fewer cores is hardly a bad thing, but it's not what I'd have in mind as super …
  • Apparently it's a very soft launch, with New Egg saying it will be 3-5 weeks before they get any in stock: https://www.hardocp.com/news/2017/10/09/newegg_confirms_no_stock_on_coffee_lake_any_time_soon That's the sort of thing that companies do whe…
  • When you restrict to a particular IP, the answer is probably "no".  If you want another game kind of similar to Star Wars Galaxies, you're going to have to refrain from limiting yourself to the Star Wars IP.

  • gervaise1 said: Ridelynn said: Early reviews: No IPC gain over Kaby - just clock bump and core count improvements. Does appear to have more overclock potential though. I think it will be an interesting 12 months ahead. Intel d…
  • Here you go: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487263 For several months, the cards you'd actually want on a $200 budget have generally been getting bought up by Ethereum miners if they show up anywhere near MSRP.  The data…
  • Eldurian said: I'm going to do a quick compare and contrast with ArcheAge here 1. Large, interactive player base. I'm going to guess a revival of an old game hasn't attracted a larger community than AA even given AAs recent 3.5 fiasco that lost…
  • Theocritus said: I wasnt impressed with UWO...Encountered several bugs and a couple were major quest ones that would not allow me to finish the quests.....That kind of game is very intriguing, I just felt they missed the mark is all. Th…
  • KnightFalz said: I am familiar with the title. You may have forgot to mention that while playing you might confuse it for a Super NES console RPG. Of course sound and graphics aren't everything. but those that place a high value on them would …
  • The price tag isn't so much a function of the genre as it is of the business model and how willing you are to be a whale.  There was a story a while back about how some guy embezzled millions and then spend about $1 million to try to "win" at some s…

  • Gaeluian said: Get an Intel and Nvidia and you'll probably never have to search or post on forums about your poor performance. You buy particular parts, not brand names.  I assure you that there have been many people who bought an Inte…
  • If you want your game to become a reality, the critical thing is to scale it back to what you can actually pull off.  There are a lot of cool game ideas that even a collection of the best game developers in the world with a $500 million budget would…
