Total War: Rome 2 has more players than every VR game on Steam combinedTotal War: Rome 2 has more players than every VR game on Steam combined

I'm still a belieVR, just about. Though everyone agrees that the market right now isn't viable, we're certain of at least one more 'wave' of developments, maybe more. And no-one can be certain that the next wave isn't the one where VR attains critical mass.

I'm not a believer. I've been gaming for a long time, longer than any editor at pcgamesn and as an old-timer I have seen what worked for gamers and what didn't and after a while you get a good sense of what the majority wants and VR isn't one of them, it doesn't have long term mass appeal for a few reasons.

You're expecting a lot from a company nowhere near the size of Rockstar or Ubisoft, so a bit of common sense when you write these articles would be appreciated.Reply

Well, they have gotten better over time. Also, it took them 3 years to release this game. It's most likely going to be more detailed- and also, its Square Enix you're talking about. Yunno, the one who brought you the Final Fantasy series. They have 4 games on this- they aren't noobs. They know what to do. GTA5 is also really old- 2013 was its release- about 5 years. Ubisoft isn't skilled in the art of destruction as much as Square Enix is. So I prefer to battle your argument, my friend!

New Order has a far better campaign than the Old Blood and a lot of people I talked too weren't overly happy with the boring zombies in the Old Blood.

I liked them both. Shrug. New Order definitely better, but then Old Blood was a discount side-release anyway.

20 hours is the furthest you've ever gone for in a title? Sorry, but that says more about you when you've been bored with any other game in less than 20 hours, it sounds like you have an attention disorder.

Ah, you misinterpreted me there. When I said this is the furthest I've gone for 1 title, I meant this is the furthest I've invested out-of-game after playing part of a game in a specific sub-genre. I've invested many more hours into plenty other games, and whilst I won't pretend I'm not a games addict/hoarder I don't believe an attention disorder sits on my list of flaws.


Poor wording of the original comment on my part I now realise; I do understand where your comment is coming from. 20 hours would be relatively little commitment for this type of game. I've had a hectic week so I've not played much of anything since the post (now sat at 22 hours) but I'm looking forward to investing many more through completing this run and a 2nd playthrough to see all the companions stories.

You don't hear too many customers complaining, but wait until more demanding games start to hit the market and Nvidia releases new cards that are going to be sold out or sold for ridiculous prices, it's then when the s**t storm really starts, I can guarantee you that.

Intel Coffee Lake CPU reviews, benchmarks, and pricesIntel Coffee Lake CPU reviews, benchmarks, and prices

Streetguru:

> "For anything else tho, you save like $200 by getting Ryzen 7 1700 that has pretty much equal multi-threaded performance"


A Ryzen 7 1700 scores 13,750 with 8 cores on cpubenchmark (13,750/8=1,719 per core), while a 8700K scores 16,139 with only 6 cores, which is a score of 16,139/6=2690 per core.


So not only does the 6 core score substantially better than the 8 core Ryzen 7 1700, when you look at the score per core the Ryzen 7 1700 is nowhere near what you consider "pretty much equal multi-threaded performance", quite the opposite actually.

The 8700k is an overclocked overheated CPU that most likely has a short shelf life due to that. It also isn't worth spending an arm and a leg on a new Intel motherboard when you can get one for Ryzen and then swap out the CPU in 2020 for a 7nm Ryzen.... Something that Intel can't do.. You know the upgrading a CPU and moving to a smaller node... Intel can't do that with their massive CPU's.


AMD's CPU's are so cheap, they made it the single most cost effective manner to upgrade a computer. Swap out the CPU. And here you are telling people to buy something huge, slow, expensive, with absolutely no chance to updgrade in the future.


Intel isn't only the more expensive choice, it's the slower choice.
