    Sources: The Upgraded PlayStation 4 is Codenamed NEO, Contains Upgraded CPU, GPU, RAM

    The deal maker/breaker for me is honestly the HD interface. If it's SATA3 I'll buy it just so I can pop in a SSD. Other than that, anything else is a bonus. I havent found any source that says it is SATA3. I figured they would have touted it if it was. I really dont get it, do they save...

    ASUS GTX 1080 Strix Gaming 8GB

    Yep, I've been using this to snipe my card. You can set alert per card, and keep a browser open to give you sound notifications for when it goes in stock. Both Strix variants were sold out in under 5 min from when NowInStock alerts. Luckily, I was at my desk when the first alert went off.

    Starcraft 2 launched today and nobody cares?

    The campaign is really tough on brutal. I've gone through WoL and HotS on brutal recently, and pretty much none of those come to the same level of challenge that some of the LotV missions bring. Hands down, SC2 campaigns are the best missions I've played in RTS. All other RTS I've played is...

    12 to 13 depending on if you use 2h 10,400% increased damage and 52% damage reduction. Not on a single ability like most sets, but on ALL of your attacks. How much power creep before we start seeing hits in the trillions :P

    Official Overwatch Discussion Thread

    WoW 2 is the worst idea for a game that Blizzard could make. Any reasonable game designer or analyst would know that a second Blizzard MMO would further fracture the already dying subscription based market, even if WoW 2 was F2P. Every character has its weak spots. A 100% scoped Widowmaker...

    The problem is that people are approaching this like a pure twitch shooter. Yes being able to aim helps, but its the ability timing that matters. Its closer to MOBAs where its about lining up the right ults/abilities than getting those headshots. Maybe if you're a sniper you need better...

    I'm curious as to how long do you expect them to support a game that now has no revenue stream. It's been out for over 18 months with pretty damn good updates: just look at how much RoS alone has changed from it's launch. Games are way more expensive to develop now, the cost to develop a new...

    It's been awhile since I've been this hooked on D3, the game has never been better. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Deliverer-1886/hero/65455837 Got a good strong HC Barb going right now. Self buffed and warmed up he has 100 mil toughness, and that doesnt include the further 50% damage...

    It's interesting how people still make such statements when the counterpoint has been public for about 9 months. http://us.battle.net/overwatch/en/

    Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm beta.

    Words of wisdom when playing with pugs and newer people. "It is better to do stupid things together than to do smart things alone." If the right move is to grab the boss, but not everyone is there, you'll be split and will get killed easily. Generally past 10, you want to be in close vicinity...

    Fire Emblem day one paid content lockout based on the story you choose

    According to IGN, there is a major story arch split in the game. http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/04/02/fire-emblem-if-black-and-white-kingdom-launching-as-2-separate-versions-in-japan Fuck. That. Shit. This is the worst, most blatant, cash grab I've ever seen. I was interested in...

    Should game developers be more acommodating to disabled gamers?

    This guy knows nothing about game design. Sure there are some improvements that he called out that might be worth discussing, but he's just another guy critizing game design that has never actually seen how hard it is to make a video game. Do you really want to wait another year for every game...

    How Game Development Standards Are Inherently Harmful

    That may be the rule, but there are exceptions Activision Blizzard and Riot Games were just announced as being in the top 100 companies to work for. I know a lot of people in the gaming industry and I know how bad it can be. Developers disappear weeks to months before launch. There...

    Just started a season SC monk last week and got T3 viable. A friend ran me on T6 runs for a bit, got tons of upgrades. My survival will be a little low for high runs, but I should be able to burn through T2 rifts quickly until I get 6 pc rainment. Currently at 4pc, getting 6pc will be...

    WoW; 5th expansion Warlords of Draenor

    The argument of killed theory crafting is again an argument of ignorance. Sure, reforging is taken out, but there are still huge communities running simulations for highest dps, hps, and survival. For example, the difference between Highmaul Raid gear and getting set pieces in BRF is huge as...

    Almost 2 Full lockouts and only two guilds in the world have killed Mythic Blackhand. Apparently most 9/10 mythic guilds (which there is less than 40 in the world) cant even get past the first phase of that fight. Its just plain ignorant so say this game isnt hard anymore. Critiquing a game...

    WoW; 5th expansion Warlords of Draenor

    I dont think its as much as the same people are lazy. It is that the game is more accessable to bads, so if you run in lower tiers, you have to run with lower expectations. If you want to see people perform, then get on the level of people performing. I run heroics and people dont fart around...

    Asia regions is much more receptive of pay-2-play and microtransactions models, just look up how popular IGR is in Asia. Its probably a test bed to see how they could make it work with Diablo in Asia. If it goes well, it will be refined and adapted to how the Europa/US regions accept...

    Anyone else interested in WildStar?

    I played it at launch, rushed to 50 in a week, and grinded out through the attunement quest line, the rest of my guild was way behind and I got tired of waiting. I just simply quit. The combat was a lot of fun, but there were way too many issues. Coming from FFXIV, the combat was refreshing...

    Each raid has 4 tiers: LFR, Normal, Heroic, Mythic. They are the same bosses but mechanically they are grouped like this LFR - Castrated mechanics so everything is tank and spank Normal/Heroic - new mechanics but the same between normal/heroic. Heroics things just hit harder so you have to...

    New computer type for me - server with low power draw ($600)

    Thanks a bunch! I'm definitely leaning toward DIY. I'm going to do a final pass on pricing for the parts then I'll pull the trigger. As for the wireless issue I'll probably see how it goes, if it's not sufficient for my needs I'll find a way to keep it closer to the router.

    WoW; 5th expansion Warlords of Draenor

    While I wish I had time for Mythics, I'm committed to only be a hardcore heroic raider. I play, gear up heroics, and take a break until the next tier. It means I dont have to feel bad not raiding for 3 weeks, and can find a spot when I pick back up. Granted, PuG heroic raiding is a crapshoot...

    WoW; 5th expansion Warlords of Draenor

    Its kind of nice but also kind of sad, I'm fully heroic geared. Unless theres a warforged or socket, there is no upgrade I want in heroic HM. I'll run one more time to get the ring, then I'll be done raiding until Blackrock Foundry. It's great to be fully geared, I'm not committing to any...

    Yes, there are 7 bosses. 3. 3. 1. The hardest part is that they're going to be pure +3/6/9 upgrades past 645. My 615/630 and often 645 straight upgrades just sit in my inventory because they're useless

    I looks like its a DPS issue, what kind of numbers are you pulling? I PUG him multiple times a week, so I see all kinds of strats. The easiest gauge is if the small adds are dead before the next large abberation. If not, you dont have enough dps. All the succeses I've had in there, we AoE...

    According to the WoWhead guide, being 1 ivl above the requirement can give a boost to success rate, so getting 646 at least seems to provide practical benefit now. There's no real reason to push beyond 646. I'm slowly boosting mine to 654 (the highest you can go without wasting anything)...

    Send me a message if you need a dps. I can come for a little bit from about 10-1AM EST, Ret Paladin. I'm 669 and pull 25-30k dps, depending on the heroic boss. On Mythic Kargath attempts I was doing 34k. I dont even need gear from heroics anymore, I just do them for stones now.

    There is LFR and there is Group finder, those are 2 different things. LFR is the lowest raid tier of difficulty. It gives the lowest level gear, but its pretty much trivial to complete. You queue up for LFR just like you would queue for dungeons. Once 25 or whatever is matched up, you go...
