    Apple leaks M1 Max Duo, and M1 Ultra

    How can this even be determined since presumably no one but AMD has access to them at this point? Are you just guessing or am I missing something?

    Battlefield 2042

    Is the gameplay loop fun? How is the gunplay? Does it play like BFV from a gunplay mechanics standpoint? I really enjoyed the gameplay of BFV, all other issues aside, but I hear they removed some of the movement changes they made in BFV with 2042, and that's a disappointment.

    Battlefield 2042

    I mean, I just want to know objectively if the game is good or not. But it's hard to find any unbiased opinion.

    Battlefield 2042

    I used to think that until they shit on BFV repeatedly with the weapon rebalancing nerfs they pushed twice, the first time right before the entire studio took a 6 week Christmas vacation leaving us with a version of the game no one wanted for that entire duration. Then they abandoned it and left...

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    This is all true, but we're discussing the value of the product to you as the consumer not what the costs are behind the product. And IMO time is the most valuable resource anyway.

    Summer of 58 Dev quits over steam return policy

    It's a perfectly relevant comparison. They are both entertainment products. It's also not like you wouldn't know the approximate length of a game, assuming you read a review of the product first. People can assess the value for themselves. I don't think $8.99 for a 2 hour original game is...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    I mean, that's literally what most players asked for, so... yeah lol. It's similar to how they did the Starcraft remaster which was critically acclaimed.

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    As another poster stated, it is literally the original D2 client. They added some QoL fixes like a large shared stash, auto-gold pickup, some bug fixes from the original, but otherwise it is the same game. You can even turn off the renderer and play with the original graphics engine at any time...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    It is the original game code, you can literally toggle between Legacy and Modern modes in real time. The only new stuff is some QoL fixes and the graphics renderer. They removed TCP/IP, so the "legacy" offline MP won't work. So it does have offline mode.... just not offline MP.

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    It always cracks me up how boomer this forum is considering it's a tech forum. By far the biggest problem with D2 was rampant cheating. They had to remove the archaic TCP/IP connectivity and add a more modern netplay framework to improve the security of the game to address this. Now we get...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    Why are you positioning "consumers value game security over offline play" as a negative here? Most people have good internet and don't care if the game is "fully online". This really shouldn't be that surprising. Personally, I've had stable, reliable internet for like 16 years now. Yes, the...

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    I guess it's possible but it's rare. When I was in HS 20 years ago the only options were French or Spanish, both of which made sense living in South Florida.
