  • @Juxtapose said: @Sintacs How does GoG allow you to make back ups? You mean an online or offline back up? Their games are all DRM-free. You can download the game you buy, and depending on the size, it will typically be either a single .exe …
  • @Doos said: It's Skynet or Mad Max. Pick your poison! I'd like to think we're headed more towards a Judge Dredd world personally. Though it's pretty much Mad Max, but with a few gigantic futuristic cities (Mega-City One for example) scattere…
  • There's absolutely no reason to go physical on PC outside of collector's editions these days. You'll often need to install Steam or another client when installing any modern physical games, if you even get a disc in your box. There's a lot of times …
  • Forgot to mention there's even some special moves for each character that are locked away behind the RNG (not gear dependant), and some that are dependant on having specific pieces of gear equipped IIRC.
  • @Juxtapose said: @Sintacs Question regarding Injustice 2: The cosmetic items you grind for, they are just that, cosmetic, correct? No gameplay or character changes with them? Or is there, but outside of competitive play? The only purely c…
  • I'd say 16GB is pretty much the standard now, especially now that a low of modern games are requiring you have 8GB. Going from 8-16GB, you'd definitely notice a difference, going 16-32GB, you'd likely notice nothing as 32GB is still kind of overkill…
  • @Law212 said: I think other than me, youre the only one who did watch the videos. But i love that people try to comment without seeing themm as they are really the meat of this thread. I watched after posting, and while I generally really do…
  • @TimothyWedel I've been playing Fortnite, but I haven't touched the Battle Royale side of it yet.
  • He said it copied Overwatch, then later said it copied a free to play game. I really hope he criticized Overwatch for it as that was a $40 game, $60 on consoles. Loot boxes have absolutely no place in paid games though. I'll tolerate em in F2P games…
  • @Juxtapose said: That was a strong part of the motivation behind things like DLC unlocked via a code in the box; like the Catwoman stuff in Batman: Arkham City, it was a way for publishers to encourage consumers to buy new. Not only that, bu…
  • When it comes to "new" for something I'm buying, it's not quite the definition "new". What I'm after is factory sealed, and that tend to be labelled as "new" at places like EB and Gamestop, it's not my terminology and slight misuse of the word "new"…
  • @Law212 said: Keys for the Scorn demo are being sent out now for backers! Cant wait to get mine. Makes me wish my GPU wasn't dead. I ended up dropping my backing level down (so I won't be getting the demo anyway) since money is tight, didn't…
  • @Law212 said: To me when it comes to things like games and blu rays, having the shrink wrap opened means its now used. Especially EB games with the games they open, they handle the disk and put it in a paper sleeve until sold. I've know…
  • My issue with them is generally more with their policies and practices with used game sales, especially when they try to pass off gutted games as new when no other self respecting retailer would sell that as anything more than used. I once went into…
  • There's a lot the US needs to do with their gun laws. Allowing civilians to own fully automatic weapons is pretty insane, and I'm somebody that would absolutely love to own any of the AK series rifles. Allowing civilians to get concealed carry licen…
  • I keep forgetting about Curse of Chucky, I really need to get around to watching that.
  • @Juxtapose I had an update either last week (Tuesday) or the week before, I'm not sure what it was specifically.
  • The only issue I've had with the update is that my Surface randomly waked from sleep frequently when plugged in. It's annoying, but I can deal with it.
  • @Law212 You gotta play the campaign for that. iI only they took even a few elements from it for the MP, it could have been a real step forward for the MP of the series.
  • @TomothyWedel I think they scrapped it before that. it's a shame though, I think he would have done a great job.
  • @Law212 the animated BatB was the first movie I ever saw in a theatre. I've had no interest in the live action though, not a fan of Emma Watson.
  • I don't mind loot boxes but they have absolutely no place in paid games. F2P games, fine, but I'm really getting sick of being nickel and dimed in paid releases. If you wanna stuff micro transactions into your game, release it at a severely reduced …
  • @TimothyWedel They can even scalp their own products and make extra profit doing so too. I'm not saying they do, but if it was my company I definitely would be. You have no way of knowing that joeshmo88 selling super marked up launch day consoles on…

  • @Law212 I saw a bit of an episode on Space once, it was neat. Lately I've been watching Dark Matter (half-way through season 2) on Netflix, and recently found out it was cancelled after season 3 (creators had planned for a 5 season story). I really…
  • @wikkiwild1 I love those power banks. I have an Anker 20000mAh for general use (phone, Vita), and also a RAVPower 23000mAh for charging my Surface on the go. They've been pretty handy.
  • I wanna get Titanfall 2 but I'm not sure where to get it. From what I heard, the first one had absolutely no anti-cheat on the PC version, and I've heard absolutely nothing about the PC version of 2.
  • I see "Life" and I always think of the one with Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. I'd have to google the new one as I don't even remember anything by that name recently.
  • @wikkiwikd1 What sort of processor do you have lined up? If you're thinking about going with an i7 but only really need the power for games, I'd strongly recommend just going with an i5, it'll save you some money for something that will maybe give y…
  • @Juxtapose yeah, Duke 3D was great, I don't necessarily have a "top 3 shooters of the 90s" list, but if I did, it may very well be #1 on it. DOOM would also be on that list, but I think I'd be more likely to put Unreal in a slot on that list over an…
