    Borderlands 3

    Really? What kind of CPU and GPU? In fairness I only tested DX12 a single time, and flipped back to DX11.

    Borderlands 3

    I'm still enjoying the hell out of taking off heads with Jakobs shotguns in this game. Once I discovered the One Pump Chump legendary, I was in heaven. Single shot, 1160% weapon damage and 10% crit damage, combined with Amara's skill where damage is greater the closer you are to an enemy? Heads...

    Borderlands 3

    Pretty much don't bother with DX12 in BL3. It just isn't there yet and I am not sure it ever will be. Unless you have a super ancient CPU coupled with a newer RTX GPU, the downsides (stuttering) aren't worth it. DX11 + HDR works fine beginning with Windows 10 build 1809. Yes HDR is amazing in...

    Borderlands 3

    Game's great. No crashes, no issues, using Hardware Unboxed settings to play @ stable 4K60. Have Epic launcher sandboxed, have both the game and Epic launcher blocked in firewall, and I kill Epic immediately after launching the game. Still on pre-nerf code with updates blocked. Don't have my own...

    Americans Are Lining Up to Work for Amazon for $15 an Hour

    Saddest part of the "lowest unemployment rate" bullshit is that it only decreased because they gamed the counting criteria. Example, now if someone is unemployed long enough, beyond a certain point they stop being counted as unemployed.

    Metro Review-Bombed: Dev Threatens Next Game Won't Be on PC If Sales Are Low

    Hopefully the backlash at least scares the next company out of making a deal with the devil when Epic comes waving their fortnite cash. It may not help this game, but the whole industry is watching this debacle, and epic is ultimately testing how much underhanded shit they can get away with...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    50-70% isn't a "monopoly". No, their only hope isn't slimeball tactics and poaching games and begging publishers not to sell games on Steam with bribe checks of Fortnite cash - that's only going to piss potential customers off from ever using their store. They're making a huge mistake in being...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    Can't tell if you're trolling and just here to argue, or actually believe that nonsense. Do you not understand what opportunity cost is? https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opportunity_cost Margin is irrelevant without factoring volume. Deep SIlver isn't "making more money" when they're...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    And the Chinese/Tencent factor will always be a factor, meaning no matter how much of a good guy anyone thinks Epic or Tim Sweeney is (I happen to think he is), if the Epic store starts to gain traction, nowhere is it written that Epic won't raise their store fee, or that Tencent won't turn the...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    This guy gets it. BTW, the "$10 discount" at Epic is far worse for the publisher in terms of lost revenue, because the userbases aren't equal. So they took a big upfront bribe from Epic to make up for the fact they'll lose millions by not continuing to have it available on Steam, offset somewhat...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    So what? Microsoft is valued at $770 Billion, have a store built into their OS, and yet most gamers won't touch the games in there with a ten foot pole because the WIndows 10 store is a disaster. And Microsoft also tried the shady tact of paying a few publishers to keep their titles off of...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    Exactly how much bigger Steam's userbase is than Epic's wasn't the point -- whether its 10x, 100x or 10000x bigger than Epic, Steam is still bigger. Fact. And therefore the point stands: a publisher limiting themselves to Epic is stepping over dollars to pick up pennies due to the difference in...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    That's not how business works. They have no reason to adjust their fee when their userbase of customers that actually buy games is 1000x-5000x that of Epic. Remember that publishers elect to publish their games on Steam because they'll do the most sales volume there. It's a completely opt-in...
