    Overwatch 2 - Official Thread

    These clowns can't even get a single balance patch out in six weeks for a brand new "live service" game. They changed the game to 5v5 and super-buffed the tanks, but didn't rework most of the game modes, so all the casual/arcade modes are overrun with tanks. They have demonstrated no...

    Overwatch 2 - Official Thread

    YourOverwatch stated that the system is placing players two levels below where they really should be (to start). Apparently you should expect to climb up pretty rapidly in the games following your placement. Something to do with the MMR reset from OW to OW2.

    Seems Freedo felt similarly about that PCGamer article:

    Overwatch 2 - Official Thread

    Having someone that is not a new player review the new player experience, but then explain why they don't like the choices based on their experience and preferences from their time playing OW1 - experience and preferences that new players will not have - makes the whole piece just feel like an...

    Overwatch 2 - Official Thread

    While I can certainly understand that F2P will put some people off, the content delivery model they had for OW1 was ass to the point that they scuttled the IP. Unfortunately, unless you want to play Paladins or something there isn't really another game delivering a similar experience to OW, so...

    Overwatch 2 - Official Thread

    This was a big reason why I never bought an ultrawide monitor. As a former TF2 junkie, I moved to OW hoping for a "spiritual successor" to TF2 and it quickly became clear that Blizzard was not going to support 21:9 properly. So many nice monitors, but since OW happens to the main game that I...

    GTC November 2021 Keynote with NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang

    Well in your first comment you said "I honestly feel that society would be better off if we were to just scrap any effort at AI/Machine learning" yet here you can envision how it could be useful. Why would you expect machine learning to be perfect when it's still early in development and the...

    GTC November 2021 Keynote with NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang

    I think the most exciting uses will be in medicine. Being able to feed an enormous amount of test results (CT scans, blood tests, x-rays, DNA, etc.) into a machine learning program and discovering a new link that would otherwise have been missed is going to provide medical breakthroughs where we...

    Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster

    I've been waiting for FFVI so at this rate it seems like we'll see it in January? I wonder if they'll try to get it out for the Xmas shopping season.

    Path of Exile: Scourge

    Haven't played PoE for a while but this expansion is looking good! Think I'll be giving it a go on October 22nd when it launches. Lots of fundamental changes including the passive skill tree, end game, guilds, skills and more to go along with the pretty demonic looking challenge league:

    He's pretty tough, but in case you aren't aware you can purchase thawing potions in town to help you/your merc with cold res.
