  • VALHALL - Medieval Battle Royale

    Interesting that "Blackrose Arts" leads to their site but that the game that is said to be "what we're working on" seems to be a more sci-fi title called Evertrond.


    Another interesting fact is that $15 dollars give people VALHALL on Steam, with estimated early access release this summer, but if you pay $25 you'll also get beta access to the game.

    It's strange that a project planning to release early access this summer, and presumably beta even earlier, isn't giving us any gameplay videos longer than snippets a couple of seconds each. It's also very strange that their website is only talking about another project.

    My personal guess is that there's been a project called Evertrond that's gone belly-up, and somehow transformed into Valhall. Personally I would't give them any money at this point. It's better to wait until this summer and Steam's verification that the game exists.
  • Intel i7-8700K Review - MMORPG.com

    I think the processors compared here aren't really the correct ones for gaming.

    For normal gaming computer you'd want to compare I5 8400, I5 8600K and Ryzen 1600x to each other. All of them are enough to give you 60 fps at 1080p resolution. As long as you don't have better monitor than that and don't stream, and most of us don't, further investment to a processor brings very little benefit.
  • GPU vendors decide that ray-tracing is their next excuse to make you need a faster video card

    (Side Note: Maybe we should stop worrying about pixel count and start worrying about PPI instead)
    Pixels per inch is a meaningful measurement for hand-held devices because the length of your arm doesn't change. It's less meaningful measurement for a monitor that you can move closer or further away from your eyes depending on your personal preference.

    With ray tracing we get better shadows and reflections? That's it? The word gimmick springs to mind.
    I don't think you realize how much photo realism this can add to computer graphics. It doesn't just work with highly reflective surfaces but it reflects the subtle light from every surface, improving lighting quality.

    Fair enough, but do you think our top end graphic games need more photo realism? I would be on the fence there, on the one hand its better quality graphics, on the other maybe not being able to make graphics any better would turn game designers minds to gameplay? :)
    It's not about what we think, it's about what we buy.

    And we're definitely sucking up all those new GPUs and games with better graphics.

    Hey, I may be whiny,  but I'm no freeloader.  I just want to be able to buy my advantages post launch, not pre.

    sounds like you don't want to take a risk with your cash?

    So if your not willing to take the risk why should you reap the same reward???

    Nothing against you btw, counts to anyone who thinks they should be able to purchase what someone else did when they took all the risk and you sat back?
    Normally it would make sense that the company sells to anyone willing to buy, any time.

    But for you and other CoE supporters this isn't about buying a good car, it's about buying a better car than your neighbor. You're making your purchases because you want to buy advantage that won't be sold to other players.
