  • Destiny 2 Playerbase Has Dropped By Over 2 Million Users Since Launch

    If no one ever quit games, then no one would have time to pick up new games and we'd complain about there being nothing new out because no one had time to play it.

    questions?
    Yes. How do you feel when 20+% of those who voted say "yes", and even the gamelist of this site classifies Destiny 1 & 2 as "MMOFPS"?
    This might explain it:

    1 In 4 Americans Thinks The Sun Goes Around The Earth, Survey Says

    That's better interpreted as saying that some fraction of Americans doesn't know and/or doesn't care how gravity works on that scale rather than insisting on something that is untrue.  And in their defense, most people don't have any particular reason to know or care about that.

    Such polls also get skewed by the overwhelming majority of people contacted being unwilling to answer.  There is also some fraction of people who will basically respond, I think that's a stupid question so I'm going to give you a stupid answer.

  • Is Destiny 2 an MMO:Poll

    I propose that we compromise on this.  Destiny 2 shall be considered an MMO on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, but not other days of the week.  Also, because which day it is varies by time zone, we shall all agree to use ACST year round, with no daylight saving time conversion.  Incidentally, ACST is an acronym that in some other language means, "a lot of land area where no one actually lives".

    Sometimes people say that the sign of a good compromise is that it makes everyone unhappy.  If that's true, then this would be a great compromise proposal.  I've always thought that it was better if it makes everyone happy than everyone unhappy, but that's just me.

    LOL - your first sentence "As always, I'll be blunt and to the point." 

    Do you know what those words mean?
    By "the point", I think he means periods, which is why he uses so many of them.

    Compute Performance:

    Interesting read, as Quiz had guessed

    All in all, this is extremely impressive. If you’re a workstation user wanting a GPU that will give you good performance in both workstation and gaming workloads, the RX Vega 64 is, surprisingly enough, a pretty attractive choice…
    Five years ago this couple with a threadripper CPU would have been the pinnacle. But now I remote in to where I'm working - my work desktop, a client's server, AWS, and such. I don't need that compute power. It's still a cool build idea though.

    This could be great in a design and development environment where you can render and play test the game on the same rig.

    I seriously wanted AMD to give me a reason to build a gaming rig, but they haven't really. None of it's bad in my opinion, just not exciting for me personally.
    A sledgehammer to your existing rig is a good reason to build a new one.
