How does Overwatch run on budget PCs?

2 years ago

I play this on a 3 year old PC (i5) with a 2 year old gfx card (GTX750ti) and by default everything was set to "high" and I see no need to change it, game works far far better than I expected it to!

Sounds good but i can't help feeling it's going to be offered up as a psgold game soon enough, so I'll wait.

Sadly I kinda feel like that about most 12quid or so games.

Watch: Should games be made about 9/11?

ratmaggot

I don't see why not but, that said, I don't really see what kind of game you could get out of it. I mean, it's just one event, it's not much of a story.

Measure: if they can make a film about it then yes, a game is fine.

I disagree. Middle Earth is FAR more important to fantasy than D&D. In your alternative world, Tolkien would still have had a massive influence.

It feels like a WOW intro which, on the one hand, is a good thing as Blizz makes astounding intros. But, on the other hand, will it entertain for an entire movie? I dunno. I'm keeping my faith in the director though, time will tell.

The very first screenshots of World of Warcraft

ratmaggot

3 years ago

I played wow solidly from launch to Cata, as did my g/f, we had great times, wonderful game. But it's all we did (not *all* but gaming / hobby wise). Cata was when we started to quit as it wasn't that great and our guild died a little. Went back for Mists, was nice, fun, but nothing special. Went back for WoD, great initial reaction but ended up more of the same. Went back this week. Lasted two days, nothing to do but tend to my garrison. After all this time, definetly broke away from it.

Where do you get a code for this? I've had MCC since launch day so I guess I qualify... but I have no messages on Xboxlive or email? Can see the game on the store, though, for 3.99.

Reading these makes me almost sad for the days when there were actually a lot of platform exlcusives. I'm "lucky" enough to own a PS4 and a Xbox One but I spend a lot of the time wondering why I bothered with both (well, I know, it's down to decades of owning all consoles - can't stop now!)

I've never enjoyed a GTA. I've owned all, since III back in 2002 (?) but I usually last a couple of hours before selling it on. And then I go back for the latest version in the hope this time, I'll see what everyone else sees.

Never happens though.

Probably me. Oh well.

Quite honestly, at this point, it's hard to give a **** about any of the sides, arguments or anything else involved in this circus.

Oh, and just to say, great, driven people do NOT back down from threats. They stand up to them. If this woman believed in what she was saying wholeheartedly, she'd have made the speech. And now she'd have MANY more supporters for truly, unequivocally, supporting her views.

Editor's blog: I am sexist

Have you seen the diet coke advert that treats the man like a sex object to be ogled by women? Have you seen the countless adverts that women can do a lot men cannot? Have you heard the countless demeaning jokes that "it's ok" for women to make about men?

No offence, but for fucks sake, grow a pair, stop acting like a wuss and making a fuss out of NOTHING. Everyone is sexist. It's a product of having TWO SEXES. it's NORMAL.

@Rildiz I too wondered this, as I have relationships from a few of the Southern African countries. I guess the fall out from what was, still hangs on, it's a shame and your comment does not deserve to be downvoted.

Although I am going to add something to this. I've worked in a variety of software fields over the last two decades in the UK and I tell list the black people I've worked with, on less than 5 fingers. Asians, Indians, Far East Asians, White, yes loads of each. Black? Barely any.
