If governmental departments and international news agencies are picking up on loot boxes, then I think there's some substance to the claims! Jeez, give it up EA you got found out.Reply

You know the worst part for me personally - Trying to explain to my ten-year-old son why I won't buy SWBF2!

EA and Blizzard are now being investigated in Belgium as to why 12-rated games have gambling in them, BBC news are picking up on this shit and still EA insist that loot boxes aren't a form of gamblingReply

I used to think DICE would be the perfect studio to take on battlefront, how wrong I was.

EA is the problem mate, not DICE. They just happened to make the game that EA own the rights to...

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti Review: The final Pascal graphics card has little room to breatheNvidia GTX 1070 Ti Review: The final Pascal graphics card has little room to breathe

Well, this turned out just as I thought... Pointless!Reply
Jacob Ridley Avatar

The GTX 1070 Ti is built to fit a slight gap in the market, a gap that AMD Vega 56 kind of covered, but even then I'm not convinced by that logic.


Unfortunately Nvidia have been careful, maybe more so than expected, to ensure that this card slots into that slim market gap with little issue on either side. If the pricing was $30 cheaper, this may have been an entirely different story, but as it is, you'll get your money's worth, but it's not particularly game-changing. Maybe a top overclocker can unlock some serious hidden potential down the line, but that likely won't matter much to the regular customer.
